Blue Horizon Shipping Inc
I used Blue Horizon to move to Indonesia earlier this year. This was my experience: I put my info on a site which sends it to a bunch of companies. I received emails from 7 different ones and phone calls from 3. I spent about 20 minutes on the phone with Blue Horizon going over the whole process. The guy was very detailed and explained all that was required for me to be able to clear customs hassle free. That’s what set this company apart from the others who focused mainly on the price and couldn’t really confidently and readily answer specific questions as to my particular situation. There are very specific guidelines for foreigners moving to Jakarta. KITAS is needed before arriving. I shipped a 20’ container which came to my door. Three movers came to pack. I was told the day before to be ready by 8am, they didn’t get there until 8:45. Packing took fairly long but they were polite and didn’t really seem to mind my wife changing her mind a thousand times as to what’s going and what’s staying. In the end the container was totally full. Price: $7,695 and that included delivery in Jakarta and packing in GA. This was 2nd most expensive of the 7 I got. Also, I was given a choice as far as paying for additional fees that would apply in Indonesia in advance or when the container gets there. It was nice knowing I would have to pay more before I picked to go with a particular company. Apparently there are a bunch of costs that are usually not included so be sure to read all estimates carefully and ASK! Service: it was mostly via email after the initial call but that was actually better because I prefer to have things in writing in case something goes wrong down the line. I was getting updates throughout and any questions I had were answered promptly. Shipping took ~6 weeks pretty much as long as was listed on the contract. When the container got here, sure enough there were charges at the port. I had to shell out another $600 bucks but I was ready for it. When everything was said and done, a box of glassware was a bit crushed and a few glasses didn’t survive the voyage. I’m happy with how everything turned out.

The UPS Store
I love this UPS store. Super friendly staff, who really go out of their way to talk to you, and genuine about it too. They give you the best prices (you feel that you just found yourself a sale). I was so happy and surprised that they also do USPS, so that saves me a trip driving all the way to Brickell to drop off packages since I live only 5 minutes away from the place. It's part of the UM Life Science Building which recently opened up. On Thursdays, there is a weekly food truck event from 5-7 PM and Balans is also there (which means EtOH is ok!). Seriously who can complain about this place? Go out on an errand and get buzzed!The manager has a great enthusiasm for his job, and he really wants to help you out. For instance, instead of charging me a flat rate he told me that shipping via Priority Mail would be cheaper. Sometimes I feel the service here is much better than at your usual post office. Will recommend to anyone who needs printing /shipping services. This place = AWESOME! Thank you so much and I Hope you keep up your enthusiasm and excellent staff!

Alex Moving & Deliveries
The Alex Mover is awesome! They came as a recommendation from an event planner friend and I was initially wary of how things would go, since I am moving for the first time with a professional mover. From the first message to Alvin, my requests were professionally handled. Quote given was competitive. They even entertained my request for disposal of items from our old place. On the actual day, they came early, did a recee and moved fast with so many strong men! I really appreciate the care and consideration in what was a stressful time with new house Miami and all (especially with a toddler in tow!). I will definitely recommend The Alex Mover to family and friends needing to move, do transport or dispose items. Quick, hassle-free, attention to detail, customer-centric! Thumbs up!

Alex Moving & Deliveries
I moved yesterday from a second floor to a first floor. The company has a good customer service but these poor guys had a hard time doing the job because they do not have the necessary tools to do the moving from a second floor with no elevators. The moving of 2 sofas (one of them a sofa bed) a dining set, bedroom set and a couple of boxes took 6 hours and the distance between one place to the new one is only 10 minutes because is within the same area. They scratched the whole metal rails of the stairs on their way down with the sofa bed but one of the employees took care of that the next day and Alex was very concern with the problem. If you are moving from the second floor and have no elevators think about 6 hours moving and read the contract before you sign anything.

Alacrity Delivery Service
I have worked in the courier and delivery service in Miami and Ft Lauderdale for over 10 years. Since I have been out of Miami for 4 years now I found myself needing help with a delivery into the Miami Beach Convention Center for a trade show. I took a chance on this business and I am so happy I did. Every aspect of my contact with this business was 100% professional thinking of my total needs in mind. Jacinta understands the importance of customer service and will do absolutely everything to assure you are totally satisfied. Honestly I have not had this level of service and professionalism in Miami in a very long time. Give them a call you will not regret it!

Alex Moving & Deliveries
Alex Moving handled our move out of our old house, the storage of our stuff while we waited to get possession of our new house, and the move into the new house. Alex personally came to our old house to do the estimate, and he was a very polite, nice guy who I immediately felt at ease with, and kept good communication throughout the whole process. The two guys who moved our stuff out, Tommy & Pedro, were really great--courteous and efficient. We had some very large picture frames and mirrors that we had them pack up for us, and they did a very careful job of that too. The storage and move-in also went without a hitch. I highly recommend Alex Moving.

Alex Moving & Deliveries
I just moved this past Saturday 4/16/2016. Excellent Service! I spoke directly to Alex (The owner) 2 weeks prior to the move and set up a day and time. His team arrived 10 minutes prior the set up time. (They had called me an hour before to let me know they were on they way) Alex called me at the time of the arrival to make sure his team had started working. The guys were very careful, clean and quick. Everything arrived to the new house perfect and on time. When they were done, Alex call me to make sure I was happy with the move. Great service and definitely a company in South Florida worth recommending !Carlos G.

Alex Moving & Deliveries
Excellent moving company!!!!! I used them twice already in the past 4 years. On moving day They showed up on time they were courteous and professional. (They call me before to advise they were on their way). Once in my apartment They protected all my my belongings (furniture , tv's, mirros etc etc ) and did not break anything. They worked very hard! To be honest I would use them again in my next move. This is who you need to contact for any of your moving needs. Efficient, friendly and professional. It is a family owned business and they treat their customers as such.

Reliable Couriers
Great same day delivery service based out of Miami. I needed to have a packaged couriered the same day from MIami to Sarasota and I searched for a courier online and eventually stumbled upon these guys. They were the cheapest out of all the other couriers that I looked up and their delivery driver came and picked up my package within an hour of placing the call. The package was delivered direct and arrived safely at it's destination. I would highly recommend using these guys if you are looking for a courier service in the Miami area.

Transporters Courier and Cargo
I was in desperate need of someone to drop off something from Pembroke Pines area to Delray Beach & this company went above and beyond. They immediately picked up the item and delivered it in less than 2 hours. The price was very reasonable and was easy to arrange payments as they take credit card over the phone. After they picked up the item to be delivered they called me for payment and emailed me a receipt right after the card was ran. I would highly recommend this company and their services!! A+ 5 star rating!
Tips & Advices
Under most health insurance plans, urgent care visits will require a copay that is usually less expensive than emergency room visits, but more expensive than standard doctor visits - around $120 on average. Urgent care staff do not have much information regarding individual coverage, so be prepared and check with your insurance provider to understand costs.
It is common for urgent care physicians to recommend follow-up treatment after an initial visit. Most commonly, patients will be asked to return to the clinic or their primary care doctor if symptoms get worse or do not improve in a certain amount of time. Patients might be referred to a specialist for treatment of more complex conditions. Or patients may simply be given a few basic tips for recovering at home. In any case, patients should follow the doctor’s advice regarding next treatment steps.
If needed, urgent care doctors can prescribe medication to treat conditions. This may include antibiotics for an infection or pain medication for a broken bone. Be sure to follow the doctor’s instructions for taking these medicines.
Be sure to explain your symptoms to physicians in as much detail as possible. Note when or where the symptoms first appeared if possible. Inform urgent care staff of any medical conditions you may have, all allergies, and all medications you are currently taking. Also be sure to bring proper forms of identification, and any health insurance cards/information to help process your visit.
You should be able to find a 24-hour urgent care clinic by searching online resources such as yellowpages.com. Be sure the location is included in your health plan network before visiting.
