Quinn Moving Co
ekThe experience was the absolute worst. The movers showed up 4 hours after the scheduled time, we're disrespectful and whiners. My boyfriend and I ended up helping them move our things. One of the men was extra lazy and frequently took breaks. All of our things did not get moved due to the storage unit closing. We were told they would return today to complete their unfinished job, but when I tried to contact them they were again disrespectful and told me to contact the owner. When asking them for the number to contact him I received 10 different phone numbers and one disconnected one. All of which were not the owners number. I finally found it online and contacted him. He wasn't any help either and wanted to charge me again to complete the job his company left unfinished. I would NEVER rec comment this company to anyone, and I am disappointed that it was recommended to us.

We used Quinn Moving 6 years ago to move, and then again once our house was built. They were courteous, showed up on time, and did a great job. Best thing is they worked! No playing around at all. We would definitely recommend them.
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.
