All State Moving dba Jet Lines Moving San Jose, CA

Postby ajl » Tue Jul 10, 2007 6:33 pm

Planning a move from San Jose, CA to Chapel Hill, NC. Curious if anybody has had experience, good or bad, with this outfit? They seem pleasant and helpful over the phone, but my concern is that there was an All State Moving out of N. Hollywood, CA whose license was suspended in 2002. The All State Moving out of San Jose shows up separately under a different owner. Any advice or recommendations? Thanks!

I wouldn't. The moving scam starts with people who are very nice but won't show up to the house and ask you to put together an inventory list for them in the beginning. There is only one firm out there (Moovers) that will have you perform an in-house survey, but they give you a binding, not-to-exceed quote.

If the mover you're interested in does the following, then you can consider them:

1. If they come to your home to perform an in-house survey of your goods to be moved.
2. If they give you a binding, not-to-exceed quote in pounds.

If you found them on the internet, or they hem and haw about coming to the house, or tell you that we only do cubic foot measurements..... RUN away and don't look back. They will cease being nice the minute your goods are in their truck.

Don't base your choice of full-service movers on price - choose them because you personally met them, they know what needs to be moved, and you feel comfortable with them.

RUN! DO not book a mover over the phone, and find someone right in San Jose to come to your home and do an estimate.

They also had an INvoluntary revocation of their license this year:

This company has only been around since 2006, do NOT use them for an interstate move. Click on the link Nancy provided you and make sure they come and do an in home estimate.

Thanks for your responses, the owner, Matt, did come by last night and gave us a "not to exceed" estimate. He seemed upfront, but gave me a very conservative, ie, high estimate for my move, almost $11K, compared to the $5K that was discussed on the phone. I'm appreciative of his trying to be upfront and honest, but am now considering using ABF Upack instead, they're service is more than half of Jet Lines estimate. Any thoughts or recommendations?

ABF is a good idea, but how much stuff do you have? For an estimate of $11K, it sounds like you must have at least a 4 bedroom? If you're thinking of using a trailer, look into Broadway Express instead. www.broadwayexpress.net

You can hire movers at each end to load/unload by finding a highly rated company at www.emove.com

I think I would get another estimate by a reputable full service mover, though, to see how much it actually would cost.

Good luck to you.

I second what Farrah said about considering Broadway Express. I just checked their online calculator and it indicated that you could get a full 53-foot trailer for less than $6500, so it seems as if the cost would be in the same ballpark as ABF. They have an automated quote system if you want to go on there yourself to see.

For the money, you would get an air-ride trailer (easier on your things than ABF's spring-ride ones), which is the same type of trailer used by major van lines. Also, all equipment such as moving blankets, dollies, and plywood decking (if needed) is provided at no cost. And the BE driver can usually be hired to help load for about $30/hour. Additional workers can be hired from a high-rated company at www.eMove.com, as Farrah said.

There are dozens of mostly rave reviews of BE on a sticky at the top of the messageboard.

If Moovers can move you, I'd definitely go with them! Make sure they have availability, I know they are booking up quickly!
