I would recommend Monster Movers to my own parents. That's how great they were with a $3,100 one bedroom apartment move across the country. Our stuff traveled more than 2,700 miles and not one item was broken, severely damaged, or lost. Amazing!
My Monster Movers experience first began with a phone call with Charles. I had some basic questions and he was friendly and helpful. A few days later, Ilan D. came to our apartment with his laptop handy and made a quick assessment/inventory list of our belongings. The guy from a company that contracts with North American was a bit annoying and pushy, so we are glad we went with Monster Movers instead. Ilan immediately emailed us a flat rate/not-to-exceed estimate which we accepted and signed a few days later.
Delivery was fine. It was three young muscle guys who worked fast. I feel like the delivery guys had an easier time because they don't have to be as careful putting together the furniture as the guys who take it apart. The guys who take it apart upon pick up have to spend a lot of time wrapping the furniture pieces and not lose little screws and bolts.
Our total move cost was approximately $3,100. It was approximately $400 over the original estimate because we used a few extra weeks of storage.
Tips for moving:
Have several companies do an in-house estimate.
Finish your packing before the movers arrive. They told me that we would be surprised by how many people aren't finished packing their stuff when they arrive to take it away. It took me much longer than I thought.
If you're doing a self pack like we did, make your own labeling system and keep a list of all the boxes and their contents handy upon pick up and delivery. Check off boxes/furniture items as they arrive at your new place. That way when the delivery guys are done, you can say, "Thanks, we have all our stuff" fairly quickly.
Have cold water bottles, gatorade, packaged snacks, etc. ready for the movers. It doesn't cost much and they usually appreciate the gesture.
