We wanted to ship furniture to our daughter in Galveston, TX. FASTSTEADY bid, and they had such great ratings and price, that we committed with them. The week before they were to pick up our furniture in OH, Hurricane Ike hit Galveston. My daughter was evacuated and we didn't know if she even had an apartment left! Then 2 days later, Columbus got hit with the wind from Ike, and most of central Ohio had no electricity. When we finally got through to Dave at FASTSTEADY, he was very kind and understanding, and we decided to wait to see if she even had a place to move back to... and TAMUG relocated all their students to College Station for the semester. 10 days later she could go back and visit, and yes, she still had a livable apartment. Dave's crew picked up her furniture, let me ship 2 extra pieces for a minimal charge. They wrapped the furniture like it was their own in bubble wrap and then moving blankets. The guys were professional and very courteous. We were EXTREMELY HAPPY with them. Because her apartment building is uninhabitable for awhile as they need to redo all the wiring, no sewer, etc, Dave is storing our furniture in Houston until she is ready for it... TOTALLY AWESOME and AMAZING. THey have honestly been like family to us. Who else extends such kindness? Oh! ALL THE AGGIES have been AWESOME TOO... HOWDY ALL YOU AGGIES. YOU GIVE HOSPITALITY A WHOLE NEW MEANING TO US! THANKS FASTSTEADY. THANK YOU DAVE! YOU TOTALLY ROCK! I HAVE TOLD ALL MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY ABOUT YOU ALL... HOPE ANYONE THAT MOVES CHOOSES YOU!
