John, the customer service person was very professional. However, we had a few issues with the movers. 1. They had originally committed to arrive between 8 & 9 a.m. The day before we were told 9-10 a.m. which put us off schedule. 2. The morning of the move they called to say that their vehicle broke down and could we go pick them up. We are new to FL and don't really know the area and they were on a remote road. 3. The guys had very bad body odor and it wasn't pleasant riding in the vehicle with them. 4. We had 1/2 of the job done before they got to the house. Only used them less than 2 of the 4 hours and then had to drive them back to their remote location. We didn't opt to have them assemble the furniture to use up the balance of the time because of their body odor that was permeating the house. Would not use them again.

Mover's response:
Hi Liz. Jon, the owner and logistics manager here. When I spoke with you the day before your move and requested an hours adjustment to the arrival time, I thought that was entirely acceptable for you and your moving schedule the next day. While the crew did have a mechanical breakdown in our company vehicle, they were less than 2 miles from your residence, on Honore Ave. While calling them an Uber was an option, I thought picking them up, if you were able to, would be a much faster way for them to arrive and start the loading process. Im very sorry for the lack of freshness on ONE of the crewmembers. While he was clean and had deodorant on, his work uniform was NOT able to be properly laundered the night before. The warm humid summer months here in Florida cause the crews to prespire heavily, as moving is a very labor intensive endeavor. We were happy to refund one of your unused labor hours for the inconvience. I do hope you would reconsider useing our services in the future, and giving us additional stars on your review, as we take our reputation, customer services, and professionalism very seriously. Thanks for supporting local vets. It remains our pleasure to serve.

Mason ans Barry showed up on time after having driven for 2 hours to get to the job site. They were friendly cheerful and respectful. They worked hard for 2 and a 1/2 hours without a break. Based on this experience we would highly recommend stars and stripes to anybody needing help like this.

The two young men went right to work as soon as they arrived and did not stop until they were done even though it was very hot. I would use them in a heart beat. Great guy's, respectful and treated every item with care.
