Looking to use this company for interstate moving (NY to TX). I haven't read anything bad about them on this site. I did a search as well. Thanks in advance.

Two Men and a Truck is a franchise situation. You have to look at each local agent's individual rep. In this case, the [url=http://www.safersys.org/query.asp?searchtype=ANY&query_type=queryCarrierSnapshot&query_param=USDOT&original_query_param=
NAME&query_string=936867&original_query_string=TWO MEN AND A TRUCK]Houston branch[/url] has an OK looking record, but I don't know anything about complaints.

You'd probably be better off using a mover located in NY, since they'd be able to come out to your place and do a visual survey for your estimate (the ONLY way you should accept an estimate), to ahve an accurate idea of how much stuff you have. How did Two Men in Texas do this for you?

Diane has the memory for the well-reviewed mover in the NY area, she can list a couple names. Are you coming from NYC, or somewhere else in the state?

Jim,

I agree with MusicMom that you should ideally be looking for a moving company in New York, even though "IMP" has posted that the Houston branch of Two Men and a Truck is good.

I can see that you're posting from Long Island. We don't have too much information here on moving companies in your area, but I just searched on the companies that I remember being mentioned and this is what I came up with.

1. Re United agents, "Michael SF" got a quote from Hall-Lane in Commack to move from Brooklyn to San Francisco last August. He said they told him that he would have the same driver from start to finish, which is rather unusual for a cross-country move . . . and good, if true - http://www.movingscam.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2217 He ultimately moved to VT rather than CA so didn't use them, but this might be one company to get a quote from. Another United agent, Nassau, has a good report on this board although Nassau didn't use its own truck to haul the shipment - http://www.movingscam.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2912. Someone was very favorably impressed with their estimator, Dan Kilkeary - http://www.movingscam.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3326.

2. Re Atlas agents, "Bob Murphy" (in sales with Coral Springs Moving in FL) wrote in to recommend Avatar Moving on Long Island. Oddly, someone else chimed in out of the blue to say that another Atlas agent on Long Island, Certified Transportation Group, had overcharged him on a move to TX, but I'm not sure whether that complaint was justified because it could have been a nonbinding estimate. Anyway, it took place almost two years ago - http://www.movingscam.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=119

3. American Red Ball: Loungecraft in Maspeth, LI, was used by "FredW" for a move to FL and he didn't seem all that enthusiastic. "FoxyPat" liked U. Santini, also an American Red Ball agent, but it's in Brooklyn. Here are the threads -

Actually there's nothing to prevent you from using a company in Brooklyn or even NJ if you want and if the company is willing to drive to your residence to do the estimate. In Brooklyn, my choice would be Dahill (Mayflower) on the basis of reports on this board and comments by moving professionals. In NJ, my choice would be University Van Lines (Atlas) in Rahway on the basis of many good reviews on this board. I tend to favor the Atlas agents because I've heard that many try to haul their own loads rather than putting them into the van line system and if you have AAA, you can get free full value replacement coverage with them, which could save you hundreds of dollars.

Big John's (independent, in Manhattan) is said to be good although we have no reports on completed moves as yet. It is likely to be pricier than others but it does self-haul its long-distance moves.

On July 12, 2005 Two Men and a Truck (Address = 149 Eason Drive
Pooler, GA 31322 - phone 912 966 9600) moved me from Savannah, Georgia into their trucks. They then downloaded their trucks into one other truck. On July 14 the household furniture was delivered to me, Richard Amann, at 20105 Saraceno Drive, Savannah, GE 33928 (phone 239 947 2844)

The delivery had significant damages. Two Men and a Truck made many promises over many months to correct the problem. In February 2005 they did make many fixes but they did not
1. Pay for a broken chair as they promised
2. Pay for (or adequately fix) a dining room table as they promised
3. Pay for (or adequately fix) a living room table as they promised
Two men and a Truck have now refused to respond to telephone calls or email messages.

I was the property manager for an apartment complex, Hunter's Bluff, located in Savannah, GA. On October 3, 2006 a fire occured that totally destoryed 3 apartments and damaged 5 others. We contacted several moving companies to help out our residents as NONE of them had renter's insurance. Two Men and a Truck out of Pooler, GA came the very next day and moved all 8 apartments to different apartments on the property as we were having furniture cleaned from all the soot and smoke. They were courteous, quick, and did it all for FREE. I do not have experience with them for regular moving, but since I was just scammed myself by a bad company, I have decided to contact them instead since my stuff is still sitting in Savannah, GA and I am now in Greenville, SC. These gentlemen saved a lot of people from spending money they did not have after a destructive fire. I praise Two Men and a Truck for their giving hearts. :D

Thanks for this report, which I posted in full on the Superlist -
http://www.movingscam.com/forum/viewtop ... 7596#57596

I've also removed the warning symbol advising people not to use Two Men and a Truck in Pooler. I don't think it's appropriate to post such a warning on the basis of only one bad review. We don't know the company's side of the story.
