We contacted Richard on short notice to relocate our 5-bedroom home from Florida and Missouri at the height of fuel prices in the summer of 2008. Due to the size of our load (a full 43 foot trailer) and quality of our furniture we were very concerned about locating a trustworthy, reliable and professional mover at an affordable price. We did our investigations and talked to a number of location and national movers gathering experience, scheduling, pricing and reference information. In the end we made the perfect choice. Our move was flawless from start to finish with the highest level of professionalism, courtesy, friendly and considerate service possible. Due to unusual circumstances we had not secured our new home in Missouri and left a day before the moving truck was loaded and drove 25-hours straight through to Missouri ahead of the truck. Though we knew the truck would arrive in just 4-days we quickly arranged a leased home and notified Richard of the address less than 12-hours before his arrival in Missouri. Given the uncertainty of even where the truck would be off-loaded Richard stayed in constant communications with us and gave his 2-3 different address locations within a 75-mile radius before we finally settled on our final home selection. Despite such uncertainty Richard moved right along, never complained and arranged crews in two areas of the state while we worked through our personal issues and decisions about our new housing arrangements. Regardless, Richard and his crew arrived exactly on time the next morning with smiles and ready to unload our furniture. It was a massive move taking 11-hours to unload (15,000 lbs) of furniture and boxes located throughout a 3,000 sf home. We understood the difficulty of the move and special circumstances involved and don't suggest that others request such extraordinary performance of any mover but we were exceptionally fortunate and thankful.You would be crazy to even consider another mover for your home.
