I have contacted a lot of movers espeially by asking a quote from vanlines.com. I got replies from a dezen movers atleast and don't know who to decide. I have last two quotes from White GLove and US1-van Lines of GA. I found out that both the companies are not good so I am stuck and don't know what to do. I have to move on 9th December as I have to join on 12th in any case. I have got a quote from North American Vanlines also but their quote is about 500 bucks more than what these other companies have quoted me. Please help me here.
First of all, don't use a moving company that contact you through 123movers.com! Those estimates are low because they are low-ball bids to get you to sign on. The price would change when your belongings are loaded. Full service moving companies are not inexpensive. Don't short yourself or you'll just end up paying for it later.
Since you're moving so soon you don't have a lot of time to plan so if you could provide some further information, the volunteers here can help you sort out your options. First of all, approximately how much inventory are you looking at? Have you had any in-home estimates or have they all been online estimates? Given that this is such short notice, could you pack and load/unload yourself if you had to? What are the zip codes that you're moving from/to and what weight and price did North American give to you on their estimate?
The other thing you could do is call ABF at www.upack.com for a quote on a mobile storage container, since they hold up to 4 linear feet or about 2000 pounds. See ABF review #23 for photos and details.
Both of these companies can usually accommodate people on short notice, but it would be important to call them ASAP.
I am not too worried about the sofa as it is not at all heavy. My main worries are about the crib and TV. As they would need to go with proper packaging and I don't have the boxes for them. Are there some companies which can help pack the stuff and load them. I was looking at emove and their is no way to contact those people prior to booking. I don't have the Akron apartment address yet as I have not decided the apartment yet. Please don't get annoyed by my lack of knowledge in this area.
Thanks in advance.
I think the ABF mobile storage container makes a lot of sense because they can hold the container for a while until you find an apartment.
I inputted your zipcode on eMove.com and a couple of companies that look good to me came up. One is Judy's in Porterdale and the other is Phoenix in Atlanta. I know that Porterdale is pretty far from you but they did say that they service your zipcode for both packing and loading. If you want to use eMove, I would suggest contacting one of those two companies since they have a LOT of reviews.
