Packer's Moving & Storage
Used by my elderly disabled parents. They DISMANTLED their ordinary kitchen chairs & couch & set couch on its end claiming they can pack more in a 26' uhaul! I've never heard of this, nor has any of my movers ever done this. Slow, doddling. I moved my parents into that home in ONE TRIP packed to ceiling of same truck. THEY DIDN'T FILL TRUCK & TOOK 5 EXTRA HRS & WANTED THAT PAID IN CASH. Still had more stuff left behind, to be moved next day and STILL left stuff behind!!! Greatly inconvenienced my parents let alone people who wanted to move into that home they moved out of. NEVER USE THEM. DISHONEST, SLOW & WILL MILK YOU OF EVERY DOLLAR!!! COST FOLKS $700. PRIOR CO. TOOK 1 DAY TO MOVE THEM IN & COST ONLY $400.

BEWARE OF OVERCHARGING!! (Fresno CA)We were quoted $450.00 for two people for four hours including the gas and 15 minute drive time to the new house. After the move they wanted to charge me almost $600. They showed up in the largest semi I have ever seen for a 950 sq ft 2 bedroom house. They did not even ask if that size truck could be parked close to the house. They had to park quite a distance away which added to the move time. Also what is a 10 minute drive to the new house took them over an hour before they were out of the truck opening the semi to unload. The driver did NOT know how to maneuver that large of a truck and it was painfully obvious as when they were backing down the 1/8 mile dead end road it took them almost 15 minutes AND they nearly took out a couple of mailboxes. They showed up at 8:15. We left the old house at 10:15. They began unloading some time after 11:00 and finished at 1:05. This is a total of 4 hours. Since we were quoted the gas and drive time were included I gave them a check for 4.25 hours and then they started arguing with me in my own living room. Trying to get me to pay for their lack of driving skills and the undue delay in starting to unload.DO NOT USE THESE PEOPLE

They are so sneaky, will try to not disclose their hidden pricing, they will try to charge you with any thing they can if you store your stuff ..I strongly recommend you to not work with them....

Tips & Advices
Yes, it’s best to empty drawers, wardrobes and chests before a move. Items always get knocked around a bit, and doors can fly open even if they’ve been taped. In fact, more often than not, movers will want to remove the drawers from a dresser--or disassemble the wardrobe to be more space-efficient.
Yes, it is customary to tip movers, but the amount varies widely. For full-service moves, a 5 percent tip is suggested, although, for extra service, some people go up to 10 percent . For small local movers, you can give each mover $10 for a few-hour job, or $20-$40 for jobs that take longer.
A bill of lading is the legal contract for the move. It provides a detailed receipt, in addition to a contract between the client and the mover. It authorizes the mover to transport the goods from one specific point to another, and it outlines the exact scope of services, with cost breakdown for those services. It also provides an itemized list of the inventory, and carrier liability protection for each declared item. Finally, it specifies the payment arrangement. Make sure to go over your itemized list extremely carefully before finalizing the paperwork--and get a copy of the full document. A good mover will go over everything on the bill of lading with the customer.
There are several items that moving companies will not move – those items will be listed on a document as “non-allowables.” These items typically fall in three categories: perishables, sentimental/personal items, and hazardous material. Perishables are food and plants. Sentimental/personal value is up to the client to decide, but usually includes jewelry, medical and dental records, personal paperwork, valuables and collectibles. Hazardous material is the tricky category, since it includes a lot of everyday items found in the garage, garden or kitchen. For example, cleaning liquids and pesticides both are considered non-allowable by many companies. Some go so far as to disallow nail polish and batteries.
A binding estimate means that the moving company cannot charge more than the stated amount, though they can lower the final bill if the scope of the job was smaller than expected. A non-binding moving estimate is more likely to wind up costing more than expected, since the movers can increase their rates for unforeseen variables like stairs, “long carry” and materials.
