Cornerstone Preferred Contractors
I have to say that I'm very pleased with this company. I 'dismissed' my LAST contractor because he messed my insurance paperwork up and it almost costed me alot of money. The guy did all of my work and pretty much taught me everything I need to know to handle any other claims I get in the future, God forbid it happens again, but either way I'm very grateful. He was very professional and made the process almost stress free. My house looks absolutely GREAT now, and they cleaned up VERY well and made sure not to trample any of my wife's flower beds. Very pleased indeed.

Two Men And A Truck
Both young men were very professional that moved me at Arbors @Natchez Trace on 04/04/17. These terrific guys treated me like family and took care of my belongings every step of the way. I promised to cook them a home styled New Orleans meal as my way of showing appreciation. Both of them need a big raise and they deserve one.

Tom Smith Land & Homes
Tom & Ellen are great people and know the land business in and out. I was able to find a perfect piece of land for my family to hunt on and I could not be any happier with my purchase.

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.
