San Jose Movers
So I left a request for estimate on their simple website, not expecting much; and I received an email very quickly from Nancy. After providing the source and destination addresses, I immediately received a professional, good-faith move estimate. Since I was already impressed by Christie speed, clear and complete estimate and upfront communications, I booked them immediately. I didn't bother getting a second move estimate to compare. I was already sold on San Jose Movers. As to Nancy's word on the day of the move, the movers contacted me 15 mins before their arrival. Also, they arrived ON TIME. The moving trunk was clean (outside and inside), organized with extra shipping materials which came in handy for my move. The 3-men team (Christopher, Leo and Sammy) were all professional in appearance which showed they took their job very seriously. All 3 worked hard for 7 hours and didn't take a break. They took extra time and care to make sure everything moved without damage by doing extra packing where I was lacking. After the move, they had me inspect the interior of the truck which I thought was a good touch.

Called San Jose Movers on a wed night for a move on Sunday morning. My move was only down the street, however we had a lot of stuff. To start, I had called several moving companies prior to San Jose Movers group and no one would pick up the phone or call back. When I called San Jose Movers group, they immediately picked up the phone and gave me an reasonable quote. I was very happy on Sunday morning when 3 guys showed up in the biggest moving truck I ever seen. I did not have to lift a finger, they did everything. What was really impressive was they took apart the bedroom sets and put them back together. My 10 year old has a loft bed, and took me 3 days to put together so I thought it would a challenge. Not these guys, they quickly took it apart and put it back (better than I did) together super fast. My first time hiring movers, and I must say it was well worth it. Not too mention that the truck was so big, it only took one trip.

From the first phone call I knew they were the right ones! They were never pushy and seem incredibly knowledgeable and easy to work with. The morning of our move we were called shortly before they were supposed to arrive, because of inclement weather we were forced to push back the start time, which was totally fine with us. They arrived, absolutely powered through our whole apartment and were done in such an amazingly short time. All of the guys on the team were super nice, respectful of our belongings and very intent on getting the job done well.

I couldn't have wished for anything better! Dan, Ramon and Jose were the best movers I've ever had. They were punctual, professional, and organized from start to finish. They clearly know what they're doing. I would 100% recommend the whole team at SMS MOVING and especially Dan.

My husband went with this mover because of the recommendations. These guys deserve every good appraisal they have. If I move another time, I am undeniably employ these guys, they topped even my husbands previously high-level expectations based upon the Google reviews.

Provided the service as requested at the price quoted nothing broken other than one minor item. Workers were professional and cared for both houses. I am happy with the service and the company.

I would never call Starving Students for anymore moves! One man was so rude and never spoke even when he was spoken to. They were not professional at all.

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.
