I needed several very large items moved out of my apartment. Since it was not a full move, no company was interested in helping me. Added to that, I recently had my apartment freshly painted, AND my building just installed a new elevator. I went with Moving UR Way. The price quote was more than fair – no hidden charges or ‘hustle’. Two men arrived right on time – and I thought “Two men?’ But they quickly dismantled a large (heavy) bed-frame and took it out taking great care with my narrow hallway walls. Lugged out a bazzilion pound Temperpedic mattress (oh, yes – and fully wrapped it as per the City ‘bed-bug” requirements – I don’t have bed-bugs BTW…just saying, they knew what they were doing and thought ahead.) Everything was removed seamlessly, with care to my apartment, and the common areas (elevator, remember?) Carried down the stairs to the basement and up a ramp to the street. I was hovering and nervous about scrapes and possible damage to my walls and the elevator. The crew head was patient and sensitive to that. They also delivered twelve boxes of ceramic tile to my storage unit. It was an odd job – one that I needed professional movers for. I was very impressed. These are good people – a family run business that respects their clients. Good people. Clearly, I highly recommend this company – and they will be my ‘go to’ movers from now on. Wow, honesty and consideration in the world of mover? Amazing.
I meant to email you earlier to thank you for a great move. We’re still unpacking and I continued to be impressed—no damage (at least from the move, unpacking has been another story) and everything was wrapped well.
I’d like to share my experience hiring Barry for a small job last week. I purchased a used coffee table on EBay and had to move it from the owner’s residence in mid-town Manhattan to my house in the Bronx. Two issues got in the way. First, the table was in the Plaza apartments on Central Park South, so there were strict insurance requirements as well as a 5 page contract to enter the building. Second, the table was valued at over $10,000, so top-notch care was a must.
Because of these requirements, I found it difficult to find and appropriate mover. Most places didn’t want to touch the situation because it was only one piece and was not worth their time. I contacted Barry through Thumbtack and was pleased at his personal approach from the outset. Barry quickly assembled the required documentation for the move and was willing to handle my case personally the next week.
Barry and his assistant Earl were very courteous on the day of the move and took great pains to cover each piece of the glass and steel table with cardboard and plastic wrap. Everything arrived in perfect condition and they set up the piece in my space per my instructions.
Based on the care Barry took with my item and the quality of his persona, I would recommend him to any of my friends.
