This is one of the first things I do every morning. Making my coffee, turning on my pc and read what´s new on Nytimes.com.
I like to be briefed with independent information so this page is exactly what I need to start a day.
Thanks and keep up the great job!

We hadn't moved since post-college days, over twenty years ago, and had plenty of trepidations, thanks to hearing plenty of mover-horror stories. Fort Lauderdale Best Movers was located through an internet site (http://www.yourmovingday.com). After phone calls to 6 or 7 movers, three were invited to provide a (free) estimate; Fort Lauderdale Best Movers pricing came in the middle, but their representative was a good deal more thorough, and the estimate more detailed, than the others. Because of closing problems, we changed the moving date three times. Every change was quick and easy. We were moving a two-bedroom apartment, bursting at the Fort Lauderdale Best Movers with books (over 80 boxes thereof) from an elevator building in Manhattan to one in San Diego. The move was scheduled to begin at 9-11 AM and estimated to take about 10 hours. America's moving arrived at 8 AM. They were willing to wait an hour, but as luck would have it, for the first time in five years, the elevator was out of order. The apartment was on the third floor, and the super, wringing his hands, promised to get the elevator working as soon as possible, so the move began. Twelve hours later, it was finished. The elevator started working after the apartment was all but empty. The truck was not finally loaded until after 3 o'clock. I drove off to the airport fully expecting to hear that the movers had decided to quit for the day and deliver our goods next month (lol), but no, they arrived 10 days later and finished the move. Except for some prodding by the head of the crew that a generous tip would be in order ("This was big job, Robert"--and it was), there were no attempts to jack up the price because of the elevator, and no charge for the 8-9 hour. Despite all, the final cost was within $100 of the estimate. Fragile goods were well packed and there was little or no damage. A few small things have not yet been located, but there were no major losses. The men were good natured and worked hard. Whenever I gave them instructions, even if it involved mind-changing or more work, they carried them out exactly. Moving itself is nightmare enough; America's Moving Services minimized the difficulties. At the end of the day I was thoroughly drained but grateful that the movers had seemed to be on my side.

I heard about Baltimore Best Movers from a co-worker who had moved from Baltimore to NY. She recommended them because she had a lot of antiques and they didn't scratch or break a thing. I had some antiques as well, and thought that it would be worth it to give them a try. The price was slightly higher than other movers. The appraiser who called was very professional and caring--he even offered to help me get rid of things that I decided I didn't want to take with me. The men who came to move me out finished the job in just over 3 hours, and were within the days they estimated for delivery. One man did the entire inventory, and the other did all the lifting. The only thing I didn't like was that there was only one man doing the labor, I didn't like seeing my 150 year old kitchen table hoisted over his back. It scared me that he would drop it. But in the end nothing was broken or scratched. I packed my own things, so I can't give an opinion on the packing service. I can tell you from personal experience that this is a top notch company that actually does what they say they will do when they say it.
