Great move experience with Griffin (Allied) in FL

Postby babs » Sun Jul 27, 2008 6:03 pm

Just wanted to pass on a good word about my recent move from FLA to CT. Went with Allied, Griffin Moving in Ft. Lauderdale. Joe my relocation agent was extremely helpful. Joe the mover and his gang from Whalen Moving (out of NJ) loaded up our 4bdroom home in record time. Our things went right to a self storage which Joe the mover helped me with the size when we arrived at the storage facility. Unloaded and packed the units and did a great job. I couldn't have been happier. Joe the mover is a great guy and I wish him a happy retirement.
I would definetly recommend Allied Whalen Moving out of NJ and Griffin out of Ft. Lauderdale to anyone.

Although I absolutely despise Florida, my truck stops running at the stateline, I will say Griffin is one of the few shining stars in Allied's agency system there. Never had a bad estimate, once i talked myself into going there that is.

I'm confused because as far as I know there is no Whalen's in NJ. There is one in NY:

Whalen's Moving & Storage Co. LLC
39 Kiscona Rd
Mount Kisco, NY 10549
(914) 241-2799

If the original poster sees this, could you have been wrong about where the driver was from?

I would just like to give credit where due.

You should move up here, JMiller. We're considered Florida but are more like the South. No Little Havana here!

I heard the library at FSU burned down before the football players had a chance to color all the books?

Free Shoes University? haha, yeah, thats what the SEC/ACC football has evolved into these days, UGA has a player arrested every 2-3 days, they all do. I would hate to know that my career as a coach depended on some of these guys, they get in trouble over and over again, and never learn.

Another driver retires. Good luck Joe.

I wonder when the tipping point will occur where the amount of retirees and drivers leaving the industry prematurely will materially affect the amount of trucks on the road. Some will argue it already has. It's not necessarily a bad thing for the agents, maybe the pricing will go back to normal levels. There seems to have been too many trucks for the amount of tonnage in recent years. However, this will affect the consumers as they will pay more.

Pro, moving fees, like fuel, are never going to get back to any kind of reasonable level. As long as COD customers get 7-8 quotes, and national accounts/3rd party relo's dictate what they will pay, not what the movers rates are, it will continue to be a survival of the fittest. The govt/military biz is being teed up for a fall too, one of these days GAO is going to find out that they are paying too much, and the teeter totter will come crashing down.

Archie, the GAO is already figuring this out. But it is not for the regular government moves, its for the militaries. Our bases are high rates at three of them and extremely low rates at two.Now, they want this family first bull to go on and put the GBL on a civilian tariff with full value replacement, and all the headaches and requirements as the regular military move.
