They were to arrive between 2 and 3 and came exactly at 2:30pm.

They were estimated to take 3 hours and they ended at 5:23pm; so perfect.

They did a good job wrapping and packing the truck. They took an interest in each item and found a place for all.

The box looks well packed and hopefully will arrive perfectly.

I would use them again.

There were to have been two helpers, but, one came and carried a couple of boxes and left to return to carry one more box as job was ending. The other gentleman, Josh, worked very hard and did a fantastic job considering he was having to do it all himself. Also, he had to deal with shifted cargo which was very difficult, but, he handled it. I would recommend him anytime.

Movers aren't paid until after the job is done

No sketchy ads, no babysitting the moving company, no "hostage" situations. Plus, your crew isn't paid until your move is done. You call the shots.
