Reference Letter - Ideal Moving Co.JackieFebruary 06, 2015Ideal Moving Company should be the benchmark for all moving companies in NY. From day one and continuing throughout the process to the final move day, Ideal not only met but exceeded their mark in the areas of their trade, speed, professionalism, communication and pro-activity (just to name a few). To top it all off, they were friendly and repeatedly went above and beyond, at times even dealing with multiple rounds of phone tag (I am not the easiest person to track down).. Their persistence showed me that they were passionate about what they do, and committed to the happiness of their client. We were very lucky to have such a hardworking, professional team carry out this very important move for us. They truly are the perfect mix of brains and brauns.I found Ideal and a handful of other NY moving companies through a simple google search. Through a weeding out process based on the best bang for our buck, I decided that Ideal was #1 in terms of quality of service and affordability. It wasnt until after I got off the phone with Jackie, Office Manager of Ideal Moving, that I knew for certain that Ideal was 100% the right mover for us. Jackie was attentive to every last detail of the move; she worked with us on pricing and even coordinated to have boxes delivered to the apartment for the move. In the beginning of the process we also changed the move-date on Jackie a couple times. But every time she was very understanding and accommodated our wishes. I am sure she worked a couple of miracles behind the scenes that we never knew about. She also helped coordinate the move with the two building co-ops, who are notorious for their short moving-window hours and strict rules; which went absolutely seamlessly. On the back end, after moving day, she also worked with us to be sure that all of our needs were met, which I thought was a fabulous touch. I assured her that they were and that we would absolutely be using Ideal for our next move.When moving day was upon us, the movers showed up right on time and got to work immediately, following all instructions set forth by the co-op moving rules. They worked hard, and were very meticulous and polite with every item, big and small. If they had questions, they asked, and then got right back to work. It was a big move, and it took the whole day- but they worked seamlessly and by the looks of it, although I am no expert, they used every minute as efficiently as they could- I know I couldnt have asked for a better outcome. Moving in NY is a challenge, period- but Ideal took away so much of the anxiety involved, which made my moving day a day that I could actually enjoy. The next time, I will actually look forward to my next move. Thank you so much Ideal!
This was a very positive experience overall for both me and my roommate. We decided to hire movers since neither one of us was really going to reasonably be able to carry down all our big bulky furniture from our apartment and then get it loaded into a truck. Even if we moved things together it just wasn't going to happen. And it's not like we have a ton of close friends we can just call to help us (we've only been living here in Brooklyn for about six months in totally, we moved here together). So this was really the only option left for us. That said, this company did a good job and moving our things, and also making us feel secure. They didn't rip us off, or show up late, they asked us where we wanted things placed in our new apartment and generally were nice without being overbearing and creepy toward two mid-twenty something women. They did a good job of just treating us like high quality customers and both my roommate and I were very impressed.
I’m proud and happy to say that everything about my move went very smoothly, the office staff and the movers were all professional, From the initial phone call by Sean the salesman to packing of our household items and to the final delivery, there were no surprises or hidden fees. They gave us a great service for the price. All of our furniture were properly placed and accounted for, nothing has been broken (which is rare for me). Ideal Moving really maintains a high standard of operation and by the way the crew leader Allen was fantastic and polite and my wife…aww lord, she was really nagging him from start to end and let me tell you… it’s not easy to make my wife happy and they did so…needless to say we will highly recommend Ideal Moving & Storage to everyone who needs to move and would definitely use them again on our next move.
We needed our movers to be here by 4am at the latest. Our landlord gave us until 10 AM to be fully out of our house, this included cleaning everything after the movers got everything out. So, we needed to not only find a moving company that would be willing to arrive this early, but off so that we could be sure would be there on time. These guys had really good reviews though, and after calling them and discussing the importance with them they assured us being there and being on time wouldn't be an issue. So, we went to I hadn't hired them, and it worked out really well. They were there at 4 AM sharp and got everything together and moved out by 7 AM. This gave us a good three hours to get everything we needed cleaned and ready so we could get a full deposit back which we did! Thanks Ideal Moving!
Whenever I've moved in the past I've just grabbed a few newspapers and wrapped my dishes in these then put them in a box. As a result, I usually end up getting to my new place with a few broken dishes, but overall I thought it worked well enough. Then I hired Ideal Moving & Storage and they suggested I take a look at their packing tips. I read them and I discovered a new way to pack up my kitchen. I decided to give it a try, and turns out, for the first time in my life I didn't show up at my new place with a single broken dish! These tips are really good and I really appreciate the fact that they offer them. Also, the movers themselves were great, so that was really helpful too. I definitely recommend both them and their website for any move!
This was a very good experience overall. I hate moving in general, and while this still hasn't changed, they certainly made the entire process easier. I like that they have packing materials and kits they will deliver to you so I didn't have to scour the city looking for boxes. I also appreciated how easy they made packing up the truck, moving the stuff, then unpacking the boxes and pieces of furniture from the truck in the new place. This part couldn't have been easier actually, as I didn't do any of it. So while I still had to pack things and am unpacking and organizing now in our new place, the middle portion of the process was totally cut out for us and that definitely helped.
As a mother, I want the best for my daughter, and that’s exactly what she got when she worked with Doris. This was my daughter’s first time looking for an apartment, and I was afraid that she would be taken advantage of and be pushed into selecting an apartment that was too expensive. Thankfully, LoHo Realty is an honest real estate company, and working with Doris confirmed this. She took great care of my daughter and ensured that she got exactly what she was looking for. Doris walked us through the entire process, leaving nothing out. Now, thanks to the excellent service we received, my daughter is happily living in her own apartment at an affordable price.
