Re: Moving Company for Smaller Loads

I am with Mayflower and I know we have a small shipment program. I had one Friday that was booked at 650 lbs. Look up Daryl Flood and ask them about the Small shipment program.

Re: INTERSTATE MOVERS NEED TO BE INVESTIGATED/MONITORED TO

You need to be more specific with your complaint. Just because you had a bad experience don't lump the entire industry into a category. Every company has it's share of complaints, but most legitimate companies have been in business for many years, and you don't survive in this industry unless you ar...

Re: movingplace.com

I would never move with anyone that has dot com in their name. Unless they can prove they have a brick and mortar building housing their offices [and not a residential home], I would steer clear. Broadway Express is a good alternative to what you are looking at here. I believe that, unless their pol...

Re: JetBlue Van Lines

That was the best explanation of what a National Account is that I have heard in many years.

Boy, but does that open up a whole new can of worms for people of lesser integrity.... Carnival Van Lines, Princess Van Lines, Quantas, JAL, etc....
Stop the madness!!!

Re: New here with a question

What City in Arizona are they in? There are really a couple of ways you can do this. If you are in a metropolitan area in Oregon, chances are there is a van line agent in your area. You can contact them and explain the situation, and if they know of another agent in the Arizona location, they can do...

Re: Self funded move from Nebraska to Alabama....

You may get a rate from Pods that looks good, but remember you pay for them to provide labor for packing the Pods, and you have to do the same at the other end. And, if you have 10000 lbs, that isn't a couple of hours job.

Re: Chicago to Los Angeles

Which Planes office are you dealing with? Planes and my company have been working together for years. In fact I spoke with one of their coordinators today.

Perhaps the weather has had an effect on the estimate timleliness.

Re: Experience with North Park Transfer & Storage Santee, CA

Stevens is a good van line. North Park doesn't have a large hauling footprint, but they are a good Stevens agent.

Re: Sacramento move - Anyone know "The Moving Crew" from Aub

Sometimes in California it is not up to building/complex managers when it comes to containers. Some cities have ordinances that prohibit placing containers in any area where they may obstruct sidewalks, driveways, or placed on any type of incline. Check with your city traffic engineering department,...

Re: San Diego Local Move

The unique thing about that particular station is that is also a border patrol station, which makes it dual purpose. A couple of weeks ago, they found 700 lbs of cocaine valued at over 100 million on the streets in false panels in a pickup truck. I asked an agent once how they could sit on the side ...

Re: San Diego Local Move

I would also like to know how this move went. This company operates out of the owner's house, and if you pull their business address up on Google Earth, his 2 trucks are parked in his driveway. His out of service record for inspections is a bit higher than average for just having 3 power units and 2...

Re: Sacramento move - Anyone know "The Moving Crew" from Aub

There are good companies in the Sacramento area. I am with a Unigroup Company, and the companies I am familiar with are Olson & Fielding [Mayflower], and Chipman United. I used to work for Chipman in their Concord area. There are agents for the other van lines in Sacramento, but since I am home, i d...

Re: Guess who's coming to America?

I remember 10 yrs or so ago, the trend was that the high tech companies and hospitals were doing a lot of hiring, and a great percentage of the importees were coming from India.
