Move from NC to CA (Thanks Michael)

Postby skanthadai » Wed May 11, 2005 7:05 pm

Hi, i would like to thank Michael & Joy (from Security Storage
& Moving in Raleigh) for the pleasant moving experience. Michael
visited my place & gave me a quote which was little higher than
(around 15-20%) some of the quotes that i received through
the internet. But his quote included the full valuation insurance,
the additional delivery services (like elevators) & the packing of mattresses. After reading this forum, i wasnt interested in
going with the internet brokers. Also since the security storage
& moving was representing the reputable vanlines
(Atlas Vanlines agent), i decided to go with them.

I told Joy when i want the stuff be picked up & when i will be ready
to receive the stuff in my apt. As promised, the movers were
there on friday (the 29th of April) at 10:30 am, half an hour after
they said they will be there.... There were 4 of them & they
packed & loaded everything within 3 hours. And the good thing
is, it was loaded onto the big truck itself so that it can start its
journey towards california. To my surprise, Michael himself
showed up to check everything is ok.

I had told Joy that i would be interested in getting stuff between
monday (05/09) and wednesday (05/11). Because i was collecting
the keys on the 8th & i was vacating the hotel on the 11th.
She sounded pretty confident & so i made reservations
accordingly. I called her twice in the middle to see whether
they are on schedule to deliver on those days. She told me
that she did not have any update from the truck driver &
told me that she will call me once she does.

I got a call from the truck driver (Jose) & from her on
monday (05/09) that it will be delivered the next day from
8-10 am. Also my stuff weighed only 2800 lbs & the charge
came down by almost 30%, which was awesome. I was
joining a startup & so i had to pay for the move myself.
On 05/10, the driver arrived at exactly 10 am, unloaded
& moved the stuff to my 3rd floor apt within 2 hrs.
I havent opened all the boxes yet but i inspected them
visually & the boxes look fine.

i would like to thank Security Storage/Moving & Atlas
vanlines for sticking to & delivering on the promises.
I would definitely recommend Michael to anyone
moving out of Raleigh/Durham area.
