I read good reviews about Verity and Hall-Lane on here for longer moves, how are they for local? Any info on Roselli? Any other recommendations? It's less than a 10 mile move for a 2 br apartment......
We've gotten a few online quotes too, ranging in price from 350-900 for the move which is a pretty large gap considering

Although there are several independents with good reviews, one person that I know personally is Tommy Maher at Maher Van Lines and I feel confident that he would give you good service. I have a feeling that one of the independents might be lower cost than Hall-Lane but am not sure. It would be good if you could post your quotes.
Here are the quotes I've gotten so far
Charles Wood - 5 ¾ hours @ $ 120.00 per hour = $ 690.00
All American Van Lines - 6 hrs @ 115/hr 805.00
Apollo Van Lines - 5 hrs @ 95/hr 570.00 (after reading some stuff here, I am soooo glad I found this forum!)
DH got these from Craigslist:
Ad Moving - "approx" 385-415
B&B Maintenance - 400
I told DH I felt they were giving lowball estimates since that was what it cost me to move a studio apartment in 2005! This is how I ended up with this task and how I ended up stumbling across this site.. SOOOO glad I did!
Hall-Lane and Verity are both coming to do a visual estimate Wednesday.......
I'd like to get a few more estimates. I got an email from Roselli based on a site I put a list of our stuff into and they're on LIMSA, didn't know if anyone here had more feed back on them or others.
I will look into Maher, also
Verity quoted 1200 because it's a weekend move
Hall Lane quoted 900 - estimator stated he felt it would be less than that, no surcharge for weekend
Never got a call from the request I sent to Maher
We are now looking into emove helpers too
Levittown stated 165/hr for 4 men
Maher called back, gave a quote stated for 8-9 hours...... that seems mighty excessive. I could do it myself if I wanted it to take that long.
Right now, Hall Lane is where we're leaning towards or doing it ourselves.....

IIRC, DH said it was for 3 men and the truck
This job wouldn't take DH and I any more than 4-5 hours, I'd expect it to take less time from professionals.
It's a 2br ground floor apartment going 10 miles to another ground floor apartment, both have easy direct access.
I don't understand 8-9 hours
I'll be back to let you all know how it went next week
