Popeyes Moving Company of Florida
We just had to move our office to a new location and as a new business owner, I was nervous about everything going off just right. While it was great that we were expanding to a new location, I couldn't help but think of all the possible things that could go wrong. I was also very cautious about hiring movers--I have heard all kinds of stories of things getting broken or "lost" during an office move. One day I was sitting at a traffic light, worrying about the upcoming move, when I saw a Popeye's truck driving by. Seeing this as a sign, I called them right then and there. I actually got to speak to the owner, Leo Genovese, and he was really helpful! He left such a great first impression that I decided to go with them before the light turned green.Fast forward to moving day. The team of movers arrived on time and got right to work, packing up the whole office in no time! They took great care with our furniture and kept all of our computers, printers, phones, etc. well organized so that when we got to our destination, it was very easy to get set up and get back to work without missing a beat.I am very grateful to Popeye's Moving Company for making our office move go so well. I could not have asked for a better team to get us into our newer, bigger location.Roger Goodwin

Plantation Moving Company
Marvelous crew!Plantation Florida movers are absolutely fantastic! Those guys showed up on my doorstep a bit earlier than scheduled and since I didn’t finish my packing they offered to help. So they marked and taped my boxes and started loading their truck. I haven’t seen better movers in my life. My transfer was done safely and without any mistakes. After my move was complete, I got a call from Plantation moving company manager to ask if I was satisfied with their services and only thing I had to say were words of praise. You are truly the best Plantation moving!

Had a good experience with my move. Guys did a good job!
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.
