Location, location, location, right? It’s a lucky person who can not only love their home, but their neighborhood, their commute and the distance to their family. While Deno Parks had a few of these criteria in his Atlanta home, his commute was killing him. So when it came time to pick up and make the move, he turned to Thumbtack for help.
Introducing Deno Parks
For several years, I wanted to move closer to my family so I could look after my aging parents. I was close to them and helping them and going to the same church and it was great. We had dinner together every week.
But living on that side of town meant my commute was sometimes up to three hours, one way, every day. I was fried.
I was at the end of my lease and had one week to make a decision: Do I stay on the Southside with my parents or do I move back north closer to work so I can have a shorter commute? I decided to move, but I needed help. Thankfully, I stumbled across Thumbtack and it so easy to navigate. With just a little of information I got multiple quotes for movers right away and they were very competitive. I read the reviews and I decided on Nationwide Movers.
While initially I thought I’d be moving on April 4th the real estate company called me back and said, “We have some incentives for you if you can move right away. Can you do that?”
I hadn’t packed anything and I had a lot of stuff. I called the the mover, Alphonso. I said, “Can you accommodate me in a few days?” He checked his schedule and he said, “No problem, Mr. Parks. We can work with you.”
These guys really came through for me. They were on time, they were nice and polite. Alphonso wrapped all my furniture, he shrunk wrapped everything. And not only did they move me quickly but once we got to my new place they set up my bed, the washer and dryer and even changed out the washer cord, which was different in the new condo.
It was a really good experience. I wasn’t expecting that because I’d never used an online bidding service.
Even some of my friends came over when the movers just to make sure everything was fine. Even they were impressed with these guys. They put all my boxes away. They put my furniture wherever I wanted it. They picked up all the trash and debris—the boxes, the tape, the newspaper. It was a real experience. They knocked it out of the park. They met my expectations and that’s why I had a good experience.
I can get to work in eight minutes now. Eight minutes. Not two hours. No problems, no headaches, no migraines, nothing. Having that commute is so sweet.
