Properly Packing Boxes Keep in mind that your movers will more than likely inspect your boxes for safety reasons. On moving day, be sure to single out which boxes require careful handling as you go through your inventory. Movers will also point out any boxes they think aren’t properly packed. If this happens, the mover will likely suggest that the boxes in question need to be repacked or reinforced. And label your boxes with which room they are to go into at destination. This will help during the unpacking as the boxes will be in the correct area.
Moving Close For short distance moving, it may seem strange to hire extra help. Other than a rental truck, you can do everything else on your own, right? So why pay for it? While this may be the case for those who don’t have families and large amount of items to transport, those who do may need to look into moving companies for assistance. By going through a professional moving service, you can insure that they’ll load and deliver your goods without any fear of mishandling, and you can always compare estimates to get the best deal out there.
Packing Heavy Items There are a few things you should keep in mind when you're packing items that weigh more than thirty pounds. Firstly, the box you're using should be of a stronger quality with seams that are either stitched or stapled. To prevent crushing or shifting, invest in corrugated or molded foams to protect your heavier belongings instead of packing paper or peanuts. Heavy cushioning could mean the difference between seeing your items safely home and finding them damaged after you unpack.
Tipping Your Movers Movers have it rough. Sure, it's a part of their job description when they're lugging your sofa into the truck, but that doesn't make their job any less difficult. Most people don't know that it's common courtesy to tip their movers, especially since you'll have to pay a substantial sum for the move, but it doesn't have to be some extravagant sum. It's recommended that you don't tip any less than twenty dollars to your movers if they've performed their job well.

This company showed up 4 hours late, no apology and was annoyed whenid call to make sure they were still coming. Two men were very nice, but the owner was so rude who was helping and pissed to be there and working late, even though they showed up more than 4 hours late, Worst experience ever. Also tried to make me sign a blank form at the end when I paid him, which made him even more mad. Please call someone else to make your moving experience a little easier on you! 1.0000

I have moved many times due to the military and this was by far one of the best and easiest moves I\'ve ever done. They knew what they were doing and packed everything with care and expeditiously. I went from a house to a 3rd floor apartment and they worked relentlessly even having to climb the stairs hundreds of times. Everything made it in good condition and nothing was missing. (that was a first!) A job well done!!! I will definitely use them again for my next move! 5.0000

I had to call 2 sets of police, one in Windcrest, Tx(origin of the move) and one in San Antonio, Tx (destination of the move). The owner is a screwball case and yelled at me incessantly, abused me, wasted the time of his help (which were none too good themselves), threatened to drive away with my goods on the truck. It was insane. This happened June 20-21, 2012. I even caught one guy asleep on my good living room chair while the owner continued with his antics delaying the completion of my move. In the end I had massive amounts of damage, my clothes were left thrown on the bedroom floor in a heap as was the bedding on top of my mother\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s bed. They were disorganized and without brain grey matter, refusing to listen to me on where things went. I am still paying for someone else to come in and sort things out-moving things in and out of the garage, in and out of the ground floor to the 2nd story. It is an absolute mess. This company has no business being in business. Anyone using them needs to have their head examined! 1.0000

One guy was on his cell phone almost the entire time. The other guy did all of the work - but unfortunately it still cost me $900. Ridiculous!! I honestly could not recommend them to anyone. 1.0000
