Best Movers America
Best Movers of America moved my apartment last week. I would like to share what an amazing job that they did with my move. They handled everything for me, all of the planning, scheduling and logistics. The Office at Best Movers of America was very helpful regarding all aspects of the move; they explained all of the steps and arranged for the delivery of my free boxes. The Moving Crew that performed the move fast, efficient, careful, professional and friendly. The Quote was competitive, reasonable and transparent; the Quote in the beginning was what I paid at the end. I wish to recommend Best Movers to anyone who is looking for a professional, honest and affordable Moving Company.

Two Men N' Van of Winter Haven
They moved me out of my 3 bedroom apartment and packed wrapped, and boxed all of my furniture, and then unloaded my things into storage, and then to finish the move the rest to my temporary apartment. In about a month and a half my home was finished. I had them move me out of storage and my apt, unpack the boxes, they were very careful and quick. Need a good move call them.

Mitchell's Low Cost Movers
Probably the 10th time I have used Mitch. Always the best and quickest service. They go the extra mile and will always be there when you need 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.
