So, about 3 weeks from today, I'll be moving into my & [livejournal.com profile] pootrootbeer's new home. Excitement, fear, giddiness, all that stuff...

But what I really need are some mover recommendations. Anyone have a mover in the tri-state area they really like? Mike & I will be doing individual moves to make things a little easier and cost- and time-effective. So we're each moving the contents of one 1-bedroom apartment about 4 miles.

Suggestions? Recommendations?

Thanks!

Being in Ohio I haven't used him, but FASTEDDIE from the old Bronze has a moving business. SweePer's lj or maybe not , as in the never hire friends caveat?

Eddie hates moves in the city, and I can't say I blame him. When I moved about 3 years ago, we chatted about it, but he tends to do much bigger moves than what I need anyway.

Yay!

I'd be wary of moving testimonials, and here's a testimonial to show you why. :)

Em and I moved the day after each other with the same company. My guys were great, they were fast, careful with my stuff, and figured out a way to save me a lot of money.

Em's guys were slow, broke a bunch of stuff, and didn't offer the same flat rate vs hourly deal my guy did.

I'm betting you'll see the same problem with any big moving company.

Point taken.

But I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who thought of the "let's not move from two apartments into one at the same time" idea

Yeah, I was moving most of the furniture, and moving more stuff over all, so it made sense to have me go first.

Last time I moved I used Moveco Movers: http://www.movecomovers.com/.
My friend Amita has used them several and had good experiences every time. I thought they were very efficient and easy to work with.

I used Moishe's, and they did a good job.

No suggestions for you I'm afraid but what a marketing angle..."ever had two big trucks curbside and total chaos in the hall? come to Move-R-Us where we'll move your stuff and your honey's stuff for the low low price of two moves minus five bucks with the added convenience of one coordinated itinerary."

Congrats on the move! I wish you good weather for the days it really matters *g*

hi! i found your journal randomly. congratulations on your new place!

i used first american moving (http://www.firstamericanmoving.com) when i moved in october. both my boyfriend and i moved our apartments at the same time, same truck, and we saved a TON of money (and time) doing it that way. the movers were fantastic and they put everything exactly where we wanted it. they even disassembled/reassembled all of our furniture, and NOTHING broke. can't recommend them more highly!
