"Interstate move from FL to NC. Very reasonable price (although took a little effort on negotiating to get here, but we got to it eventually). The good and at times not so good part of working with a local company is that it can be very personal. With the moving business, I understand that their hours aren't exactly 8-5. Our initial meeting was at 8ish at our apartment in Gainesville, which was close to our toddler's bedtime. Just something to keep in mind if time boundary is important for you! No big deal, we just never had to deal with outside of business hours with precious moving companies that were national or regional. We weren't there for the pick up, so we packed up and had a friend help us with it. There was a little miscommunication about how many movers were supposed to be there for pickup, so that part was a little stressful for us being in NC and our friends and movers in FL. It got resolved after a few texts and phone calls and our stuff got to storage that day! It would not have been as big of a deal if we were there ourselves, but I just felt really bad for my friend who had to wait longer! The good part of this move was that Rob gave us a month of storage for free and was helpful and accommodating our requests along the way (eg helped us pick up our dining set from a warehouse for no charge). We very much appreciated the movers he sent to deliver our stuff at NC, although we wished they had more time in between our delivery and their next stop as Rob initially told us that he would add value to our move by giving us more hands on service we wouldn't get with big companies! His movers were very helpful with putting our dining table for us, but we didn't want to waste their time, so my husband assembled the dining chairs himself! Rob did send two movers for our drop off, instead of having my husband help out like we initially agreed to, so that was nice. Overall, no moving job can be perfect! Except for minor hiccups, it got the job done at a reasonable price within our budget!"
