Unless you've got some kind of masochistic streak, do not even think about using Allied or any of its local firms. These folks are absolutely the worst business experience I have ever had. For starters, they were 2 hours late arriving. Then thug #1 asked me how to pack things (huh?), then thug #2 began taking things out without covering the carpet ("I forgot"), then thugs 1, 2 & 3 got into a race-based screaming match in my bedroom, then the district manager of these fools showed up, taught them how to use packing tape (on the job training?) and split as soon as he could, then thug #2 took 8 hours packing our basic drinking glasses (you'd think they'd use those cardboard dividers, eh?), then thug 1 spilled water on the rug and smeared it with his shoe and didn't tell anyone until I found it and then he yelled at me for being disrespectful. I forgot to mention - I bought these guys lunch in the hope it would accelerate their work. Bad move. After a few slices of pizza I found them actually sleeping in the truck. The litany of insults and incompetence goes on and on - rudeness, sloth, sloppiness, vandalism, lost parts and missing boxes. Dante wrote a play about Allied, he just described them as hell instead. You get the idea. If you have any other option - and this includes a monk with a burro - take that option over Allied. You'll be happier for it.
