moving grandmothers house please help

Postby gagirl » Thu Apr 19, 2007 7:16 pm

I am moving my grandmother's home from Pa to Ga and am terrified about hiring a mover for such sentimental property. I have packed the items but I cannot be there for an in house estimate. My sister can come to supervise the move. The next door neighbor is buying the house and she is also a real estate agent. I've left her a msg to call me about movers but this is such a small town I would like your help to be certain these irreplaceable items find their way home. Thank you for your help

Since your grandmother's neighbor is a real estate agent, it's likely that she already knows the reputable movers in the area.

What zip codes are you moving from and to? How many rooms in the house? Approximately how many cartons did you pack?

These three companies are the only agents for national carriers close to her home. Shelly and O’Brien are Allied Van Lines agents and J.J. Brandt is a Stevens Van Lines agent. Shelly and J.J. Brandt are both good agents. Don’t know much about O’Brien.

J.J. Brandt operates mostly straight trucks under Stevens HHG authority and would likely move your grandmother to Kathleen on their own equipment.

You're welcome. I still recommend that you check with the realtor for any suggestions that she might have.
