saved a lot of money!
This was my first time using a moving company, so I was worried they wouldn't take care of my stuff, or that they would move slowly to ramp up the price, but triple 7 movers had such great reviews I decided to go for it. Unlike some other companies, they charge one materials fee for things like tape, blankets, and shrink wrap, so I knew exactly how much that would cost up front. I also had them bring mattress bags and rented a few wardrobe boxes. They didn't charge me for the one wardrobe box that collapsed between apartments, which I appreciated.The 4 person crew arrived at 9am as scheduled, and they called about 20 minutes ahead of time to let me know they were on the way. I was impressed with how friendly and polite they all were, and even though I was still packing up the last few bits of junk that hadn't made it into boxes yet, they got started right away. When moving boxes, they literally ran up the stairs to get the next load, and I didn't see one of them slacking for the entire move. They wrapped every piece of furniture in blankets and/or shrink wrap, and nothing was damaged. They were extremely careful with everything, even the crappy 10 year old Target bookcase that I told them I didn't care about. Our large Ikea bookcase wouldn't fit down the stairs, so one of the movers unwrapped it, took it apart, managed to save everyone of the 8 million screws and wooden pegs, and then wrapped up the pieces. They even offered to put it back together at the new place but I did it myself instead. At the new place, they put everything exactly where I wanted it, put back together the furniture that had been taken apart (bed, kitchen table), and unwrapped most items for me. Our new storage space was smaller than I had thought, and one of the movers rearranged our stuff multiple times to make as much of it fit as possible. They had estimated 3-5 1/2 hours for our move and it ended up taking exactly 5 1/2 hours. Overall I was extremely impressed with the way the movers moved quickly without damaging anything, and they definitely went above and beyond what I expected from a moving company. I would definitely recommend these guys, and the next time I move I plan to use triple 7 movers again. Moving sucks no matter what, but they made it a million times easier than if we had done it ourselves.
