Moving USA
I have used Moving USA a few times before and they are always top notch! Scheduled the move with Peter and he provided a pretty spot on estimate of time and cost for the move. He is always responsive via email or phone. Matt and the crew who moved us did an amazing job, they were fast, friendly and thorough. Matt explained the breakdown of the costs beforehand and then quickly got onto getting all of our stuff packed away in the van. The first stop was storage and they did some amazing work getting all of our stuff into the storage unit, some pretty fancy space usage made sure that we'll be able to access anything pretty easily. Second stop was our new temporary apartment. They placed everything where it needed to go and were more than happy to help move some existing old and heavy furniture. These guys worked hard and non stop and they were always happy and cheerful throughout. I highly recommend Moving USA and will have no hesitation in using them again when we move on.

J & J Metro Moving & Storage
J&J Metro moved me into my new home on Tuesday. I was in a 2nd floor apartment in Ocoee and just moved to a small 2 bedroom home in Sanford (Lake Mary area). I originally called and spoke with Neil, he went through a series of questions regarding both of the locations as well as exactly what I was moving. The call took maybe 6-7 minutes from start to finish and at the end of the call he was able to give me an exact estimate of costs based on what I had moving. He then emailed me an estimate so that I had it in writing and outlined all of the items, the addresses, and a full outline of the costs. After calling around to several other companies and after talking to several of them they just wanted to give me a well most 2 bedrooms take 2-3 hours and our hourly rate is blah blah, and you are charged whatever it takes plus truck charge, fuel, etc. Although J&J Metro does still charge what they call a travel time, and fuel, as well as an hourly charge they actually tell you exactly how long

J & J Metro Moving & Storage
I hired J&J Metro moving twice in the last 2 months. I have never hired a mover before but when we had to move offices I was tasked with finding someone. I have heard nothing but horror stories about moving companies. The moving industry doesn't always have the best reputation and that made me very cautious about the company I hired.I called into the office and spoke with Jason about what I was trying to get done. He walked me through the process from pick up to delivery. He explained they would take extra care of my glass items and that they would be able to fully dismantle and reassemble any of the furniture that needed it. That was a relief! After talking to a couple of other companies in the area I decided that I would hire J&J based on the conversation and the way they made me feel like they could get the job done with no hassles. I still have to do my regular job, I didn't want to worry about whether or not they could do theirs!! These guys were great... period.

After my husband passed last year I decided to downsize and move closer to my daughter and grandkids in Miami.. I had heard of Safeway Moving from a friend at Church and gave them a call. Everyone was extremely helpful in an arranging my first big move by myself, and my sales representative was so sweet and patient as I debated what items to donate or sell. She helped me through the inventory and was willing to use mostly pictures to get an accurate quote. There was a small price increase when the crew arrived, but it’s perfectly understandable – I ended up with extra boxes last minute as I forgot about the powder room. I’m quite pleased with how They handled my move, and definitely recommend them.Thanks for not making any mistakes during my relocations. I trusted you not to let me down and it was so. The relocation services were so different from what I had expected before. Instead of the usual average relocation services that most companies offer, my experience was unique.

I had an excellent moving experience with Safeway moving and storage last month. I am a small business owner and I needed to move to my first newly purchased house in Delaware. This was exciting for me and at the same time it needed it to be done with a lot of coordination. I chose Safeway moving and storage after reading a lot of good detailed reviews of this company. Most clients seem to be very impressed with their service. I called their help line and was answered by their sales rep. He was very efficient and spoke the best English ever. The main criteria of my move were; to move on a Saturday. He explained to me that the Saturday schedule was very packed and requested me to consider on a Friday. I requested him to please make some arrangement to pick me on the weekend as I too am a business owner. He assured me that he needed time but would definitely get back with some solution.

Orange County Movers
I hired this company for my move and I can say they are truly awesome. I had a good amount of stuff to move including large furniture and my previous apartment was on the third floor. They really amazed me with their superb service, their expertise and skill. The stairwell is narrow and they were able to bring my leather couches down from the third floor without any damages!!! Well they also wrap everything really nice too!! Everything was done with such ease and fast!!! I was in my new apartment on Kirkman in two hours and it didn't even feel like I moved. I move all the time and to me, moving is such a hassle!! I'm glad I was able to use Orange County Movers and make my move a smooth transition!!! I most certainly recommend this service to others!! Orange County Movers rock!!!! Thank you so much!!!Jake - Orlando, FL

Relocations are my worst nightmare. Thankfully, there was this company which took some of that stress away from me during my last relocation. The primary reason why I chose them was the amazing quote they gave me. They were offering the same rate as most other companies but they were giving me an early morning slot. It meant my movers would be energetic. The movers who arrived right on time were very well equipped for the task. They efficiently packed everything and moved them to the vans. They were done with everything so quickly. I only gave them directions for the job. They made the delivery on schedule and all my stuffs were in great condition. I don’t think every move has to turn out to be so traumatic!

There are so many unanticipated costs when it comes to moving companies. They quote you something and then they keep adding to it for ridiculous reasons. Thankfully, nothing like that happened during my last move. I hired Safeway and quite honestly, I was expecting them to be like any other moving company. But they were nothing like others. They were totally professional and very honest. Their original quote was as good as any other company. They sent over 4 very capable men who worked very hard to pack my furniture and other belongings. They were throughout professional and efficient. I received all my things in proper condition and the final bill was just right. I am happily recommending these guys.

I work for the government and always get moved around in a year or two. This time I hired Safeway moving and storage because they have an impeccable reputation in the market. They gave me a very rational rate for today’s market. I was very impressed seeing their crew arriving with all the proper equipment and their vans were in very good condition. It was the quickest move of my life given how efficiently the men worked. They were like machines packing and loading all my belongings systematically. There was no chaos anywhere. All my belongings were delivered 3 days later as promised and everything was in excellent condition. These movers really know their business and I am very grateful to 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.
