AJD,

I have two employees that actually worked for Beverly Hills Transfer and they speak very highly of them. So I think your OK with them.

Nancy can give you more info on the NAVL agent you mentioned.

Best of luck,
Michael

I live in the Los Angeles area, and I recall that both of those agents have very good comments on this messageboard.

Ok here's the update:

We finished with estimates from both agents that I last wrote about.

Allied's was more expensive and only offered us a total guaranteed price. I asked for a Not- to- Exceed price but states that they don't do that.
I just don't feel comfortable with going with what he thinks our stuff weighs as opposed to the actual wt. and poss pay less. We have a lot of ikea furniture which weighs next to nothing. Also, we are in the process of getting rid of clothes and other stuff we may not bring. Otherwise, very nice and profesional as opposed to the other little companies I've heard from.


North American's was pretty resonable. They offered a Not- To- Exceed estimate (big part of our decision) and said we can request to see them weigh our stuff or the weighing receipt( whatever it's called). He was very nice and profesional as well. Although,before the big discount they are throwing in.....it would have been an absolute ridiculous estimate. Do they just throw in a fake high price and discount to make it seem like they are giving us a deal. Bekins did the same thing. And the after discount estimates were comparable to everyone else's. Any comments on that?

Thanks,
AJD

We are probably going to go with North American. Although all that stuff you guys were writing back and forth about, kinda scared me.

Discounts in the moving industry are just rediculous, but yes... huge discounts are the norm for professional moving companies using the 400-N (or even the older 400-M) tariff pricing. It's normal to wonder why the heck it is still done that way (we all do), but don't let it stress you out.
