This is the first move when I decided to forego renting a uHaul and doing the move with a couple friends, by instead hiring professionals to do it for me. After my experience with A-1, I'll never go back to moving myself again. Here are a few of my observations:
First, the rates were exceptionally reasonable for a fully insured moving company. If you value time and convenience (and maybe the condition of your furniture and walls), the rates are downright cheap.
Second, the movers were pros (just what I was paying for). DJ and Jeremy arrived 10 minutes early and were in my apartment assessing the items by 9am sharp, which was exactly my reservation time. Everything was loaded into the truck with good care and all larger furniture items were neatly wrapped in moving pads and strapped to the walls.
Third, these guys moved quickly. When booking a service that charges hourly, I was concerned there wouldn't be a sense of urgency. I found quite the opposite. On two separate occasions I caught Jeremy and DJ jogging back to the truck to grab more boxes. Even if it only saved a few seconds, I appreciated the hustle.
All-in-all, would recommend to anyone looking for a quick, painless move without breaking the bank.
