Pavel and his guys SAVED the day!! Because of his amazing crew, I did not have to take a day off from work to move when another moving company screwed us over.
Well, I am sad to report that another moving company booked through Thumbtack cancelled on us at 7:30 AM on the morning of the move. Initially stressed out, we ended up lucking out with Leclair Moving.
Pavel answered the call at 10 AM offered us a a cash flat rate for 2-3 guys and completed the work in less time (4 hours including driving and breaks) than the other company had quoted us. We couldn't believe it. We saved time and money.
The main challenge was that they were a few hours later than promised. However, given that they squeezed us in at the end of a long hard day, we were very grateful that they helped us out.
Another difference that my girlfriend noticed is that they were a little bit short on the typical accoutrements of moving companies (wardrobe boxes, moving blankets). Thus, some of the items were not wrapped as much as she was used to. However, that did not matter a lick to me because all my furniture showed up in excellent condition.
They helped me arrange the furniture in the new place, which my girlfriend was really grateful for. They worked really hard at both ends (two flights of stairs on either side!)
We gave them a $100 tip for their commitment and professional execution of the job.
