Re: Anyone Used "Door to Door" Moving/Storage?

I would also look at companies like
www.getasam.com and also www.packrat.com

There are multiple companies offering the container type moves and all seem to be pretty good.

Re: **Nassau World Wide (Atlas Agent) - feedback?

Nassau WorldWide still shows being with United Van Lines on their web site. They have been an Agent for United for many years. I had not heard they have left.

If they did move to Atlas then the movement of agents from one Carrier to another is not just with the Sirva companies.

Re: Is it dangerous to give a deposit?

You should avoid that mover. Any legitimate mover will not require a deposit for you move. That is red flag number one. You should always chose a mover who has a established place of business that you can see. Go by and kick the tires and meet the staff. If the mover does not have his address on his...

Re: Moving about a block away or same-city, PODs a good choice?

Not knowing what city or state your located in you might try one of the other Do It Yourself Container companies. Like 1-800-Get a Sam or PackRats. There are a couple of them that will drop the box at your house. The Sam Option is a Product of United Van Lines and Mayflower where the PackRats is a i...

Re: Movin in 2 weeks

In Phoenix I would try Dircks. The are in the process of switching from Allied to Mayflower and would probably be not only very good but very competitive as they been focusing on their switch. But Daniel's Atlas is good as is Horizon United van lines.

good luck on your move.

Re: Despite 12 moves in 16 years, I NEED help, PLEASE...FL to CO

Suddath is a Jacksonville based company and a big hauler. They might want to use them as of their bids. I am sure there is also good Atlas and Allied and others in that market.

Re: Moving from mid-MO to CO, beginning the estimate process

How did the two bids compare to the ones you decided against? If they are dramaticly lower I would take the bid that is 1,000lbs more so you know your worst case price. If the bidders were two of the majors in that area you should have a good move. Who are the two bidders you liked? OK. I've gotten ...

Re: Movers Insurance Company

CALL YOUR STATE'S ATTORNEY GENERAL'S OFFICE in addition to calling the PUC. The AG has the ability to cut thru the red tape and you might ask for an investigator to come to you home to meet the mover there. I bet in an election year he would be interested. Thank you all for your help. I will contact...

Re: Carmack Ammendment

Most of the 3rd party Car haulers have insurance besides valuation. If its a reputable company they will settle the claim after their charges are paid. You might need to work a resolution with them on doing that but your own car insurance company would probably tell you to pay the carrier and that t...

Re: The Rise and Fall of the Professional Mover, by Archie White

NOW THAT'S A SCAM! Then they figured out what's the absolute highest we could charge our customers without them going elsewhere. The result: You have a company paying Cartus or Prudential 54% and the mover does the job at 71% and they take 17% for doing absolutely nothing..... This is how they got ...
