Anchor Moving
In hindsight, I should have estimated that we had more stuff than I thought we had, but the problem was we needed to give them an estimate of the number of boxes we'd have 3 weeks out from the move, when most of our stuff still hadn't been packed yet. We guessed way too low, so they were not able to get all of our boxes on the two trucks and we were left to move a bunch of that stuff ourselves, but that was our fault, not Anchor's. I wish that they could have sent someone out to our house to give us a better estimate up front, but they don't do it that way. That's the only knock I have against them.As for the stuff they DID move, they did a great job. We were quoted one 35' truck, and they arrived with two trucks (about 22' each) and an extra man (3 total). They were able to get ALL of our big stuff (furniture and other large junk) on the two trucks, and they did it in less time than I was expecting. They were also very friendly, professional, and respectful, and as far as I can tell, they didn't damage anything(!!). And they did all of this at about a THIRD of the price that we were quoted by Two Men and a Truck.So overall we were very pleased with their service and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a good, local budget moving company.

At Your Service Moving
Very smooth move! We called several moving companies to get quotes. This company is far superior to all the other companies. Wes was the first point of contact that I had. He helped comfort me and gave and me a detailed estimate 1 month ahead of the move. A few weeks before the move he called to confirm the move...again very professional. Lastly, the day of the move, the movers showed up 10 minutes earlier, very clean and professional. They took the time to talk to us and figure our needs our needs. Then they started their job of wrapping the furniture and packing it with care. It was amazing how smooth it went. I will definitely use them again if we move again!

Maybe it's because there was some snow on the ground, or maybe it's because they don't get as many jobs in winter and didn't need to rush our move, but I've never seen movers work so slowly. We ended up asking them to drop things at the front of the house so we could carry them to the proper rooms, just to get the thing done. We could have done it just as quickly if we'd called up a few friends. Part of my disappointment is probably due to how highly recommended this company was by friends who had used them - in any case, we didn't have the A team and it cost us. I thought hiring movers was supposed to make it LESS stressful.

Across Town Moving
I am actually did not move nor have Across Town Moving & Delivery CO. Today, I was driving around town running errands and my battery died at a QT. The owner of the moving company, Antonio, without any questions, took time out of his day and sat out in the cold and jumped my battery. He was as friendly as it gets and I could only imagine how amazing his customer service is as a mover. He refused to take any money or anything inside from the store. Antonio was about as genuine and kind as they come. He gave me his business card and I look forward to using him in the near future for moving.

Abc Quality Moving
. I want to commend and thank Kevin W., Walt & Kurt for their help on 8/11/14 when I moved from Barnhart, MO to South County in St. Louis. Despite the misting rain, they arrived on time, the move went smoothly and all my things arrived dry. They efficiently unloaded and distributed everything exactly where I wanted it -- all with a friendly attitude. I will certainly recommend ABC Quality Movers to my family & friends and call then again, if I need their help.

Anchor Moving
I had an excellent experience with Anchor Moving over the weekend. The movers were so professional and courteous. They were there on time, were patient with me, moved everything perfectly and carefully. They communicated with me throughout the time at both residences with any concerns or questions. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Polite, careful, professional and fast. Definitely would use again and recommend.

Mantle's Moving Co
Jeremy and Otis just moved a 450lb cast-iron tub up 2 flights of stairs; one with a very tight landing. I don't think any other moving company could have handled this job with only 2 guys. Big shout out to Otis and Jeremy! They are the best! Oh and I almost forgot, they were also the cheapest quote I received. I couldn't have asked for a better experience.

We had Two Men and A Truck x2. All of our furnishings abd misc. gear had been in storage for more than 2 months. The four men
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.
