Best Moving and Delivery moved my 1-bedroom apartment from New York City to Portland, OR, and I have never been more pleased with any such service I have ever received. I dreaded moving, because of the upheaval to myself and my family, but also due to the expense and hassles that can come along with such an event. I am very pleased to say that the portion of this event that was handled by Best Moving and Delivery could not have been better, and removed much of the stress I was feeling about this entire transition. When I was getting quotes for the move, the prices quoted were wide ranging, and the services being offered were constantly being reduced, as the prices rose. It was very difficult to get a clean quote on prices and services from anyone. The quote from Best Moving and Delivery was not the lowest offered, but it was the most comprehensive, the inquiries into the details of my move were requested in advance, and a quote for the move was provided quickly, and without qualification. John Ratko, from Best Moving and Delivery was very conscientious in contacting me in the days leading up to my move, and was in constant contact with me, as he was enroute. He arrived on time, and secured a space near my home, on the very busy streets of Manhattan, and his team went right to work, packing my things, quickly, but thoughtfully, into the truck. They were very meticulous about how they placed things into the truck, and were able to carry more than I expected they would have room for. The delivery of my items, across the country was equally well handled, and arrived at the exact time requested, with another team of movers, who made quick and efficient work of their task. After they left, and I unpacked everything, I was very pleasantly surprised that not a single item was broken or damaged in any way. I mention this because I had packed the boxes myself, and was pretty sure that a certain number of things would be damaged, no matter what I did. The truck had to travel across the country, in the winter, and I was sure that there would be a few bumps along the way that would have caused some damage to something. Not a thing was broken. My family’s possessions were in good hands, when I entrusted them to Best Moving and Delivery. I would absolutely utilize their services again, and I do not hesitate to recommend them to my friends. Based on my experience, this company is well on its way to building a strong reputation. If you are looking for a polite and conscientious mover, who will do what they promise, with no funny-business, this is the one.
