Hi,

I am finally going to retrieve all my stuff, and it will have to be moved from Port Everglades to St-Pete. it represents about 650 cubic feet of delicate furniture, clothes, books etc...

I need someone who will load it, transport then unload it carefully in my house. I can't do anything myself.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. . I have also heard about an auction site... no idea if it is interesting and serious.

Thanks a lot

You can do a search on movers on this forum but I recall others recommending 2 men and a truck. If you need help with the search let me know.

I used Grabel to move out of state and was very happy with them. They move instate too. They mover was great and the estimator was very nice and professional. Not pushy at all. I only had them move my big furniture though.

Check the BBB before you hire anyone. You might see complaints on all of them but it is what they did to resolve the problem that matters.

I don't know if they are only local, but I've used Rock's Moving Co. a couple of times (they were referred by a friend) and they've always done a fine job.

Rock's is really, really good. I could not recommend them more highly.

I used the following
http://movers-tampafl.com/
AAA All Professional Movers, James
(813)835 - 5096
moversinbrandon@gmail.com

The lead guy is a bit gruff and no-nonsense. They are NOT cheap, but they are the BEST movers I've ever used. As expensive as their hourly rate is, they probably saved me money b/c they ran their collective tushies off. Typical movers milk the clock.

Thanks a lot. Now I know where to start the job .
And thanks for reminding me about BBB, I was forgetting to check . It IS mostly big (and delicate) furniture.
I have a few days to decide

Absolutely, do not think just because some movers are cheaper per hour its going to cost you less.

Found some a company on craigslist to move my larger stuff from our rental into the home we purchased. They took forever. What I though would have been a 3 - 4 hour job took them over 6. I had to eventually help them so they would move faster and instruct them how to load up their truck to make more stuff fit.

done , meaning I am in the middle of thousand boxes .

After a short search because my contractor did a ****ty work... and it's not finished, (Rocks is very very expensive), estimates going from 1100 to... 2400 (and not a flat rate) , a lot of junk mails, I finally chose Fast Moves, he is in Clearwater.

I think the guy is alone, and hires some men when arriving (I didn't have to pay 4 men from Miami to SP), he is very nice, very reliable, he did a superb job, he had planned to be here at around 5 pm, he was there at 4. They unpacked the furniture, nothing is damaged... after such a long trip from Cancun, I am very happy with him , I couldn't recommend him more. It was the cheapest, and flat rate.

I almost chose a company from Miami FLATRATEMoving & Storage, his (flat? ) fare went from 1200... to 1800 after asking me for the volume . He already knew the weight. Abuse!!!

just saw your post not sure if you have moved or not, I have used 2 men and a truck 3 different times, all 3 times they have shown up on time, been friendly, were careful with my furniture, were very quick. you can go online to request a quote and they call you back in a timely fashion, and have always been nice and helpful on the phone. and, the best part is they were very reasonable, would recommend them!

Thank you, straw.... as you can see just above, it is done and well done, I chose Fast Movers (the driver coming alone from Miami, got 3 more men here to help). I recommend him. He was there one hour earlier than planned, he is very nice. He also was the cheapest one (that's not the reason I chose him, but he gave me a flat rate)... so the saying "you get what you pay for" is not always true .
BTW, he told me horror stories (confirmed by others, newspapers articles) about BBB. I can post it, but in a different topic, if that can help.
