*Moving from Miami, FL to Northern Virginia in August and need suggestions!

Postby heatherkara » Thu May 24, 2007 10:23 am

I am relocating from Miami, FL back to Alexandria, VA this August. I am downsizing and only moving what equals to one bedroom apartment plus an upright piano.

I am looking for suggestions on reputable movers from anyone who is familiar with the areas or has had good or bad experiences. Who to go with? Who to stay away from?

What on average should I be looking for in the way of cost? Is a flat rate move a better option?

I am in the process of getting in home estimates from Nobel Van Lines, Bekins, Atlas and United.

Stay away from Noble Van Lines. Bekins also isn't the greatest major van line to use if you have the option of not.

Check reviews here:

Suddath is a well known, top producing United company. Becareful and only have local companies come and do in home estimates. There are a LOT of scammers in South Florida, but if you stick with the major van lines, you will be ok. Do NOT use the Find-A-Mover websites.

Let us know how your search goes!

I know Orlando is a long way away, but if you could convince Hilldrup to come for an estimate, they have an office in the DC area as well. otherwise I would have said Suddath as well (in Boca Raton). They have many good reviews.

I just contacted Suddath (United) to get a quote. Has anyone has personal experience with the local Miami company?

I've known the President of Suddath for a few years, and the President before him for about 20, they will do you a fine, professional job, you can't do any better.

Eliav Elbaz, you've been blocked for repeatedly posting advertisements for your company against MovingScam policies. And, you're not even posting on relevant threads.

And, your company SUCKS! Seriously, how does a mover lose their license three times in 4 months??

Thank you! I have the Suddath agent coming to the house on Friday. So far, he has been very professional and we have decided not to use Nobel Van Lines.

I used Suddath (out of Boca Raton) in September for a move from Coral Springs to Minnesota, and I was very pleased with them. They would be a good choice.

Good luck!
