Shlomo and his assistant Jacob were awesome! Right on time for pickup and super accommodating with all of our details during the move. We had a move that could have easily gone crazy – moving from Cali to Philly with 6 animals and a zany amount of furniture (including a potter’s wheel and a car.) We drove out ourselves (with the animals) - he was a day ahead of us with the furniture (he called us every day to check in and let us know about the weather conditions, etc.) He even met us outside Philly so we could drop off the RV and loaded up all of our extra baggage for the last leg into Philly – amazing! My only compliant isn’t about Shlomo at all but about the uShip site. As a first time user I took uShip literally when they asked for the size of the move and then said that itemizing was optional – I understood that to mean an X-sized move would equal an X-sized space and that itemizing was only for the details about that shipment, so I filled out the itemization rather willy-nilly (also for some bizarre unknown reason the itemization form is NOT alphabetized making it a pain, for me at least, to fill out) only to learn after accepting the bid that said itemization is how the movers plan the cost of the bid – of course that totally makes sense -- and it did end up that we had to pay a bit more than the original bid, which in itself didn’t bother me but I didn’t like feeling as if I had misrepresented the move when the uShip site clearly says itemization is optional – I think uShip needs to clarify the language on their site.
