I'm moving to America from Japan at the end of next month, and while I have several quotes from moving companies, I'm interested to hear what experiences other people have had with specific moving companies, good or bad.

If it helps, we're (my wife, two kids and myself) planning on bring a lot of our personal effects, but no furniture, as it seems too pricey to justify moving furniture from Tokyo to the east coast.

Looking forward to any recommendations or advice people have!

Alright, here's my review. We ended up using Nippon Express (日本通運), and were very pleased with the job they did. We had an aggressively low quote from Sakai as well, but for a smaller move (we brought no furniture), I believe Nippon Express has better pricing. From my understanding, Sakai would need to reserve a certain amount of space in a shipping crate for us for the boat portion, so they were not able to offer the per meter deals at 2.5m that they could at +5m.

Nippon Express wasn't perfect, but they did a great job of getting back to us, addressing our issues, and providing agreeable resolutions. All said and done, have gotten our packages quickly and professionally delivered with no problems (with the stuff we've unpacked, anyway) for the price we paid, I'm pleased and would recommend them. I hope this helps people who are in our situation, and I can answer more specific questions if people have them.
