Moving Tips & Guides
Benefits of Full Service Moves
Full service moves are defined as a service which encompass all of the primary aspects of the moving process, like packing, loading, shipping, delivery, unpacking and assembly. A full service move covers all of your bases and is extremely convenient. If you’re contemplating hiring a full-service moving company, read about all of the possible benefits of full service moves right here.
What are Stair Carries?
Also known as a flight carry, a stair carry is when your movers have to bring your belongings up or down at least one flight of stairs. Since moving things up and down a flight of stairs requires a lot more time and labor, most moving companies will charge you an extra fee for stair carries. Any reputable moving company will tell you about these fees ahead of time, usually at the time of the estimate.
Finding Your Mover
Research, research and research! This is the most important part of finding your moving company. Movers.com can help you locate movers in your area. We also showcase company reviews from customers. Be sure to do your homework when hiring a mover.
The Different Types of Moving ...
During your move, you are likely to use the services of a moving agent. These agents handle the logistics of the move, such as making the appropriate arrangements and acting as a liaison between you and the moving company. Though you are likely to use moving agents for any type of move, their roles are especially crucial during long-distance and international moves.
Get Multiple Estimates
When moving, make sure you get at least three estimates from different companies so that you can properly compare their services with your budget.

Poor customer service
Franklin Van Lines
We just completed an interstate move (618miles) and although the moving crews were fine, we did not have a good experience with the company sales and dispatch departments. The initial quote (with all of our furniture and an estimated number of boxes) was a good price so we paid our deposit and scheduled dates. Our quote was "updated" twice by the company - once by a rep 2 days before the move and once by the foreman on moving day. Each time the increase was exactly 150 cu. ft. The rep even wrote 18 large boxes instead of our count of 8, but when I tried to call the rep back to correct the error - no answer. So I texted and emailed - again no reply. Their answer when questioned was always...Oh, don't worry. You won't be charged if you don't use the space. But it affects your deposit amount and I doubt you ever see much of the adjustment for actual usage. The initial price was not even close to the final price, even though our inventory list did not change by much. Dispatch said the movers would come between 2-5pm on Friday (the second of our selected moving dates). Friday came and went...no movers, no call. Again, I tried to get ahold of someone at the company - call, email, text, leave a voicemail...no reply. Saturday morning, still no calls or messages. My fiance and I scramble to readjust our schedule with the real estate company and make alternative plans for our packed belongings. At 4pm on Saturday the movers called and said they were just leaving and heading our way...they would be there in the evening - they had just been dispatched to pickup our belongings. They did eventually make it on Saturday night (>24hrs late with no notice or warning). This is unacceptable customer service, especially for something as complex to organize as a move. I would strongly recommend AGAINST using Franklin Van Lines based on our experience.

Unacceptable business practices
Edens Moving Services LLC
To say that we are disappointed with the service we received from this company would be an understatement. In addition to the move costing 3 times the estimate, items were lost (they admitted it), other items (including a $1k grill) were broken and never delivered (making us wonder if they were just stolen), and several smaller items were broken during the move. We were extremely understanding... for the first few months. It became apparent that their "customer service" department hoped we would go away. We filed the claims as they asked, and the third party company was equally unprofessional and uncooperative. With thousands of dollars of documented damage and months of waiting, they offered us $100 and told us we "should have moved ourselves if we didn't want this to happen." Nice. We will continue to voice our concerns until this company makes things right. In the meantime, do not even consider Eden's Moving. They have absolutely no business taking people's money.

Careful Movers
Interstate Relocation Systems LLC
The relocation was smooth and effective. The movers were keen on small details. They were very careful during the packaging and loading processes. They did it so well. I am hopeful they will be able to keep it so in subsequent relocation services.
