    The only glitch is that I found a spring on the floor next to my Day Bed. I haven’t opened it yet to see if it will open or if it is broken. I have a picture of the screw I found.

    I appreciated Kevin’s thoroughness and patience with me as I moved through the process. Everyone from the packers to the crews that loaded and unloaded my goods were great to work with as was Joe the Driver. I definitely would use your services if I ever move again. Thank you.

    Dwayne Porter, without doubt, is the most professional driver I have ever shared a move with. Everything went perfectly from the loading, delivery time and unloading. I have moved cross country at least ten times in my life and this was far and away the best ever.

    Kevin Pruitt was exceptionally responsive and patient with my many questions. From start to finish he was professional and courteous. Frank Corrales was the same, he's a good team leader. Everyone worked in good spirits, very efficiently. They checked in on certain fragile things and handled them well. At the new house, Frank and Maurice could match any Olympic athlete for stamina! There likely should have been at least 3 men because of the terrain between the truck and the back door. They REALLY worked long and hard-- and were pleasant throughout. It was taxing for sure. Overall, it was a very good experience.

  • Lynn M.

    Kevin Pruitt was very helpful with the premove and Andy, our driver was just awesome. He was friendly, helpful and flexible. He stayed in touch with me as needed.

    We had one bad packer that made the whole experience not good. Gerry or Gerardo packed 3/4 of the house and should be paid for going above and beyond. Kitchen packer was terrible and only packed 2 cabinets in 7 hours. Left many things behind that we did not catch until the van was being packed. Need better spot check system to check cabinets and drawers. Sam the driver was outstanding and the movers were very good at both ends. Called Phoenix office and they never returned my call. Office staff in California was excellent.

  • Robert R.

    June 20, 2017

    Overall the move was very good although I experienced some slight (or in once case somewhat more significant) damage. The movers on both ends of the move were very nice and overall did a very good job. The major issue I had was that it was a very quick move for a cross-country move although I had been told that was the minimum amount of time the move would take.

    We were very pleased with the move. Bob our driver from Austin Texas was above and beyond our expectations. We have moved many times over the last 37 years and he is the best we have ever met..He moved us just like the professional that Bob is. We have no complaints just wonderful praise for your company in Rancho Mirage and your drive Bob. Thanks again Nancy and Mark Meyers

  • Diana D.

    March 24, 2017

    Everyone I had contact with were very nice and patient with me. I had my credit card cancelled the day before the move as someone had used it. I was very nervous and when I spoke with Julie she told me not to worry since visa was sending me another cd air over night they would send someone to the house for me to sign. Upon receiving the card I called and someone came to the house on moving day and I signed. Since I had given lots of stuff away the estimate I was given for my load was high, I received a refund. The men who packed were all very professional and my son told me that when it was delivered the same thing. Also impressed the truck was very clean in/outside at pickup and delivery.

    All the people that we interacted with were professional and courteous. We especially liked that our shipment of 30 boxes was enclosed in a study container so nothing was lost. Our delivery date was also very convenient and allowed us to return to the delivery site BEFORE the shipment arrived.

  • Charlie G.

    The actual driver/mover, Jesse Sanchez, was phenomenal throughout this process. He and his crew (on both ends) were friendly, courteous, professional, and more importantly, exercised great respect and concern in handling and packing and unpacking my household goods.

    My United driver Frank Corrales and his 2 helpers, Juan Carlos Mercardo and Tito were all dedicated to their packing and loading from ny Ca. house to my Meridian house.
