"In response to the other person's review who stated that this company damaged his things, my only thought is that he either had different movers or this company has truly learned its lesson. Every single one of my important furniture items was wrapped in plastic and/or blankets for secure moving. Absolutely nothing was damaged during the move, except a cheaply made $10 side table from IKEA that I thought might not make it anyway. I made sure that I went through the house and showed them the furniture that was most important to me (mainly antiques that don't look like much, but have sentimental value). I had multiple guys check twice with me to make sure that they each knew which pieces held the most sentimental value, and they in turn treated them with care.
Additionally, I packed our most valuable items in our car for safe-keeping, but from the way these folks carefully packed the truck I felt confident that I could have left even my grandmother’s jewelry in their hands and it would have been very safe and secure. I was worried about a big 3x4 piece of hand-painted artwork getting moved safely, but I didn't need to be. The artwork that I had these guys move actually arrived in better shape than the artwork that I moved myself in my own car!
I've moved myself across country from Virginia to Colorado to California to Massachusetts to North Carolina, and every time there were things that I packed that didn't arrive in tact - that's just a part of moving. However, American Moving and Hauling did a much better job than I ever have at moving my own things. It was so nice to pack up the house myself and then see a team of happy, capable, professional locals move my things. I can't tell you how nice it was to see them roll up my carpet, tape the doors closed and wrap up my furniture, take apart the heavy dining table, and move everything with care (and in record speed). What a gift and a joy!
A big thank you to everyone who supported our move from American Moving and Hauling!! What a great way to support local business, by supporting a woman-owned company where the tough guys wear hot pink t-shirts that proudly proclaim that a woman is their boss. Best of luck to this company, and I hope that their business continues to thrive."
