We are happy we picked ADMIRAL VAN LINES and Storage and would definitely use them again as they seem to be one of the better if not best moving companies around.Admiral Moving and Storage blew us away with their hard work and efficiency. The movers were courteous, professional,and knew what they were doing.I had them come out and pack for me the day before.They brought all their supplies with them for packing.They did t seem to overcharge for the supplies they used.I was actually very pleased with that part.5 stars for that!they did not nickel and dime me for the supplies they brought when packing for us. Also,they were really flexible and really good with last minute changes.I called them the day before to have them come pack for us because I tried but couldn't finish it.I also called them the week of the move to change the date/time because of last minute work issues.

I stated earlier that this was a horrible business. Admiral Movers of South Windsor, CT was not the moving company that I had issues with but a business out of New Jersey and a 201 area code. Unfortunately, the Jersey company hijacked the the Google search. After reading some of these reviews I think some of these people are talking about the guy I Jersey and not Admiral Movers of South Windsor, CT. I am giving them five stars because they have no control over this other company.

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.
