Relocation with a moving company


Recommended Posts

So part of my deal was relocation... the company showed up when expected packed everything my wife asked them too and asked about things we didn't even want to take. They showed up today, when they said they would, and loaded the semi with all our stuff. Seemingly too really good care of everything, making sure it was packed well and shrink wrapped. The head guy apologized that he would not be there at the end of the trip as he was taking another load some place different.

We are also having a car shipped to and the guy called before he showed up and was right on time.

It was really nice not to really lift a finger and have these guys bust their butts helping us out. The say they do the same on the other end.

I was not completely impressed with the other part of the relocation company but the household goods part was great.

Now only a 14-15 hour drive with the wife, 2 dogs and a cat to go before Austin in our home.

I like it when everything works as planned, I moved from Dallas TX to Norcross 30 yrs ago.

the Co. that moved us did a great job They even had our clothes in the right rooms. Save all your paper work, We got hit with the moving expense as unearned income. Some one at my office filed the wrong tax forms :angry:

I went through one of those events once. It was great. A guy showed up with a station wagon full of flattened boxes, packing material and tape. He said to make a pile of the things I didn't want to go on the truck.

A one point I went to get another doughnut from the box my neighbors brought over that morning and they were gone. I had neglected to put them in the "don't pack" pile and we went through 7-8 boxes before we found them.

When the truck arrived they grabbed two hand trucks and had my stuff loaded in a flash.

Painless...

These movers are hit or miss. I relocated a few times with the government and have had the full spectrum of guys showing up reeking of booze, to people who packed it better than I wouldve.  Most were somewhere in the middle and wood furniture never made it unscathed any time.
