Help You Move
Medford, OR 5/3/2013April 10th, 2013This company exceeded my expectations!! I needed furniture and boxed items moved from indoor storage units to a house. My issue was NOT everything was going into the house! When I called to get information and rates from various moving companies in town, I was impressed by John, the owner. His knowledge of my new location and its unique driveway and lane, impressed me. He even recommended the size truck I should rent, knowing turning around might be an issue. I later spoke with Natalie, his wife, and booked his company. She gave me information and was helpful in recognizing the need for keeping the brand new carpet and freshly painted walls in great condition. The three young men arrived early to the storage facility, so they could see what they were dealing with. Being INSIDE units required extra care and attention. Tyler, the owner's son, oversaw the loading of the truck and worked diligently with me, going over "what stayed in storage and what went to the new house". He was patient and offered suggestions, later, moving items, to better organize the units. (Original moving company had made a HUGE mixed-up mess)Once at the new house, they immediately worked together to check out the hallways, door widths, planning their move INTO the house. I have very large, heavy pieces of furniture and they handled everything so well!! They wrapped door jambs, took off doors, laid down runners on the new carpet, unwrapped furniture, folded the blankets, set up the beds, etc. This team, consisting of Tyler, Anthony and Brian, was hard-working, fast and so considerate of everything!! I will definitely use HELP-YOU-MOVE again.

American Independent Movers
American Independent movers estimate came in really close with a couple other companies but the deciding factor for me was how Joe was so resourceful and educated and was able to answer every question I had. Thank you for providing me with fast and efficient high quality movers! I was so afraid of using a moving company considering all the horror stories I've heard, however, I am very pleased with American Independent Movers and I will definitely utilize their services again. As a matter of fact I don't ever want to move myself again so thank you guys for taking a huge load off my shoulders!
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.
