NYC to North Carolina move next week - Allstate Express / Ga Ler?

Postby movingon » Wed May 16, 2007 4:12 pm

I am planning a move from New York to North Carolina and need to find a good mover very fast (need to move next week).

I have spoken to a few moving companies and would like to know if anyone has worked with either one of these companies:
1) Allstate Express Moving & Storage Inc.
150 35th Street
Brooklyn, NY 11232
1-877-252-7588
USDOT#: 1258674
(These guys also seem to operate under the name "Moving Forward Relocation LLC" MC#557629 out of the same address)
2) Ga Ler Transportation Service Inc.
274 44th Street
Brooklyn, NY 11232
(718) 490-8898
MC#: 565888

Thank you very much for any advice!

Ohh, this is short notice, and that's exactly how less-than-desirable companies rope you in.

Long story short, none of these guys look worthy of your business. I'm pretty sure All State's been discussed here before. If you REALLY want, I can give you all the reasons why they don't look worth it, but for now I'm going to suggest that you call one of the NYC :thumbsup: movers on the Superlist.

Dahill (Brooklyn)
All Star Moving (Brooklyn)
Shea Moving (Queens)
Delancey Street Movers (NY branch)
Moovers (NY branch)

Or really, any agent of a major van line, but stress your timeline.

is there any way you can push it back a week or so? Are you willing to drive a rental truck to NC and hire loaders on each end? This would be a good optuion for you, you're not going to far. You can tow your car.

I must move next week which is making things more challenging. I will try contacting the movers you recommended.

I found a thread about Allstate Express Moving & Storage from 2005 which doesn't look very good. Any updates on them in the past two years?

This is their Safer profile, I'm not sure how to intepret it:

And this is the Safer profile on Ga Ler, again, not sure how to intepret:

Thanks!

movingon,

At this late date I am sure that Delancey, Moovers, and Shea will all be booked. An ABF ReloCube could be a fallback for you.

This is what you should be looking at for Allstate:
http://li-public.fmcsa.dot.gov/LIVIEW/p ... e=ALLSTATE^EXPRESS^MOVING^~^STORAGE^INC.&pv_pref_docket=MC509602&pv_usdot_no=1258674&pv_vpath=LIVIEW

They've only been licensed to do interstate moving since 01/2005.

Ga Ler has only been licensed since 09/2006:

I made the same move in December using Atlas/Avatar movers. I found them via this site and I could not recommend them more. They were excellent and I had no problems.

Thanks - I assume that you had a driver from Atlas Van Lines and not from Avatar (?). If you'd like to comment about any individual involved in your move, please do so.
