I work for TSI, an outstanding IT Support firm in Midtown. Recently, we needed to have a large printer moved from our office to a client's office. I checked around and came across Basic Moving. \n\nFrom the moment I called, they listened and made sure they understood what I needed. They gave me options. They made an appointment when I needed it.\n\nWhen their staff came, the gentlemen were very courteous. They quickly, but carefully, moved the printer. I didn't have to worry about certificates of insurance. Basic's office team had already taken care of that.\n\nThe next time TSI needs a large piece of equipment moved, I won't need to call around. All I'll need to do is call Basic Moving.

I used Basic Moving to move out of an outside storage unit, and it was a great experience all around. \n\nFrom the beginning, the person I made the phone reservation with was kind, polite, and extremely helpful. He made me feel assured that the move would go smoothly and it did. On the move-out day, the movers were professional, efficient, and friendly.\n\nI would definitely recommend the company to anyone who wants an easy and pleasant moving experience!

\nI hired Basic Moving based on a recommendation from a family friend. He used this company for a local Brooklyn move and was ecstatic about his experience.\n\nI am very glad I listened to his advice. My Manhattan moving project had very strict move-out and move-in hours and the crew was very efficient, quick and careful.\n\nAll of my furniture was wrapped with moving blankets for extra protection and it did arrive to the new apartment without a single scratch. The movers were cooperative with both of my building maintenance people and we had no hard time from them whatsoever.\n\nI was expecting some hassle, especially from my building. But, thankfully to my movers, they melted those tough building people.\n\nI will definitely use them again and recommend them in the future.\n

Basic Moving moved my stuff cross country. They were professional and helpful from packing up my stuff to making sure it got there as quick as possible. Robert the driver was especially helpful in communicating his driving progress. AND it ended up costing almost $1,000 less than the estimate. I was very happy. Thanks Basic Moving!!

I contracted Basic Moving to move me from New York to North Carolina. From begiinning to end this move was handled very professionally. John came and gave me an estimate and assured me that the price would not exceed what was on the contract. Not only did the price not exceed the estimate, but I was called and told that I was due a $400 refund because my things weighted less than estimated.The men who packed my things in New York were very friendly and handled my things carefully. Grace, the secretary was great, she kept me informed about my move the entire time. My things arrived in North Carolina on time. I have not unpacked everything yet but so far everything seems to be in good condition. The driver, Boris was so accomodating and never once got frustrated when I kept changing my mind about what rooms I wanted my stuff put in. I will be moving again shortly,this time local, and the first call I will make is to Basic Moving. Moving is a very stressful process but if you want to have one less thing to worry about use this company you won't regret it.

My company uses Basic for all their moving needs. I moved from East Village to Midtown. The move was done fast. The driver and the crew were very\r\nfriendly and hard working. It is always a hassle moving in the City,\r\nespecially the parking. My driver was an ace. The parallel parking he did with the truck, I would not make with my car! I had three other movers making a delivery to my new building. They were working there before we arrived. My driver made all the arrangements and we were done unloading before the others.\r\n\r\nSo again, they are Great-Plain and Simple!\r\n

I had asked Basic Moving to send someone to my home when we were planning on relocating from NJ to TN. We had a very full active home in Jersey with two small children and two dogs and we didn?t need any more stress than we already had. The estimator was very respectful and easy to deal with and explained everything in great detail. We had three other estimators come over and we felt the most comfortable with Basic Moving.\r\n\r\nPack and load went great and the delivery arrived on time. As I am writing this review, all the boxes are unpacked and all the contents are in perfect condition. It is very important to hire the right company that truly understands your needs, your concerns and your unique situation. Basic Moving/Wheaton is definitely this type of company.\r\n

I needed to move fairly quickly within Brooklyn in a week?s notice. I happened to find Basic Moving on the Internet and gave them a call. They asked me for a list of all the items I was moving and then gave me a price, which I found quite reasonable.\r\n\r\nThe crew arrived on the day and time promised to me by Basic Moving. They worked efficiently and moved everything from my old apartment to my new apartment and assembled everything as well. I was quite pleased with their hard work and would recommend them to anyone looking for a mover.\r\n

Basic Moving was recommended to me by a good friend. Our architect firm has\r\n15 employees and we have been in the same office for the past 30 years. The company assigned a move coordinator that oversaw the entire process. It was a 2-day move and everything couldn?t have gone smoother. It is a big deal to move 30 years of your life, but the moving company went above and beyond to make this transition as easy as it gets.\r\n\r\nAs per our move coordinator?s suggestion, we did it over a weekend. So, our operations were not interfered at all and we were back in business on Monday. There were many decisions to be made to relocate our firm, hiring Basic Moving was by far the best decision made.\r\n

Recently I moved locally from Dumbo to Park Slope. My crew was very experienced and handled my oversized sofa and the rest of my furniture. The price I paid was reasonable and the service I received was great! I?ve had some good and bad moving experiences in the past. But, right now I think I?m all set with a mover for all of my upcoming moves.\r\n

Great Moving Experience without Even Being There!\r\nBasic Moving was recommended to me by my realtor. I had a 1-bedroom apartment, moving within Midtown. Helen was my point of contact. Her estimate was accurate and everything went great! I wasn?t able to be present during the move process, so both of my parents had to be there with the movers. They were ecstatic with the whole experience and they are a hard couple to please.\r\n\r\nWhen I walked into my new apartment two days later, it felt like I lived there all along. All of the furniture was placed in the locations I\r\npictured. The bed was assembled, so just get in and start a new life! It?\r\ns good to know that there are people out there that you can trust with your eyes closed. Honest, reliable and trustworthy.\r\n

I recently used Basic Moving for my move from DC to NYC. Could not wish for better service. My driver, Boris was very polite and very experienced and knowledgeable. Before starting loading, he explained everything they were about to do with the rough estimate of how long it would take to complete loading. He was very considerate about my personal schedule to make sure that I was able to keep my plans.\r\n\r\nAll my possessions were treated with respect and each time I would ask them what can I do to help, the movers reassured me that they would handle everything. There were no ifs ands or buts. The driver gave me his cell number saying you can call me anytime with any questions.\r\n\r\nI received my delivery in NY on the agreed date and time. Everything arrived safely and the movers didn?t leave until everything was placed, reassembled and reorganized several time inside of my apartment.\r\n\r\nI would use them again in a heartbeat and definitely recommend Basic Moving.\r\nThey are very professional, experienced and respectful.

My roommate used Basic Moving and was very excited about her move, so I gave them a try and I was very pleased with the service. The head guy Laslo was awesome! I even gave him a nickname, ?No Problem?. I moved into an elevator building and my new roommate used a different company moving in and the movers she hired couldn?t fit the sofa into the elevator and she had to hire another company to take it apart and put it back together. Not so with Laslo! My couch didn't fit either. But, ?No Problem? he said, and here you go my couch was coming out of the emergency exit door on the 6th floor.\r\nSo, again, Go Basic! Thank you Guys!\r\n

My company relocated my family from New Jersey to California. Basic Moving handled all the steps of my relocation and made it a very easy transition The estimator did a thorough walk through the house. We agreed on the dates.\r\nThe packing took 2 days. Some of my items had to be wood crated and professionally dismantled. The loading took 2 days as well. I knew we had a lot of stuff that included a handmade 10-foot canoe. The loading went great!\r\nI was a little concerned of getting the delivery on time so I can start working at the new office. The truck got there on the agreed date and the California crew did a great job unloading and putting everything together.\r\n\r\nMy company uses Basic Moving/Wheaton for all of our employee relocations and after many moves, it was by far my best experience! As part of our relocation policy, I have to submit a report to HR. I gave Basic an A++.\r\n

Moving is always very stressful, but this time it was very easy to schedule and get an estimate. My moving crew was very friendly. We had to share the elevator with another moving company in the same building, but the crew leader made his own arrangements with the other company and the elevator guy, so they kind of worked it out without me even feeling it. Overall, I am a Happy Camper! Thumbs up for Basic!\n

I hired Basic for my move within the City ? 4th Floor to the 4th Floor. I spoke with Ben at Basic and he made all the arrangements. On the move date, we had a crew of 4 and even though I didn't have a big move, I know the stairs are a pain! They didn't even blink an eye! They were literally storming the steps. I moved 5 blocks away and the move took 5 hours. So, for about 4 hours it was all about running up and down. I bought the guys some water and Red Bull and they really appreciated it.\n\nI will definitely use them in the future and sill recommend them ? very hard working and motivated.\n

This is my third time moving with Basic. First time, I moved right after Hurricane Irene from Manhattan to their Storage Facility.\r\nEverything went very well despite a very confusing time after the Hurricane (public transportation, etc.). They wrapped all my furniture very carefully and provided me with a list of all the items that they took away. My second time, I was moving my daughter, who is a military member, before her deployment to their Storage Facility as well. We had the same experience.\r\nFinally, they moved everything from their Storage Facility to our newly renovated house. Everything went very smoothly. They covered our floors with floor protection and I made sure that I received all the items against my list of my inventory. Everything was there in the exact condition that it was picked up.\r\n\r\nIt was very easy to communicate with their office throughout the whole process and I highly recommend Basic Moving.\r\n

My realtor recommended Basic Moving and I am very happy that I listened. This was by far my best move. I moved several times and it was always something. You do expect some glitches with your mover, but not this time.\r\n\r\nBasic Moving arranged all the Certificates for both of my buildings, showed up on time and the price I paid was exactly what I was promised.\r\n\r\nI would definitely use them again and would recommend them to my friends.\r\n

Oh my. This company was a nightmare from the first contact. To say they are rude would be an understatement. We moved from Brooklyn to Dayton, Ohio and it could not have been worse. They are rude, they cuss like a drunk sailor, and they had no regard for our belongings. Any other company would be preferable to these guys.

We had a really good experience using Basic Moving for our recent move. We were anxious about the move, however Basic Moving has such professional staff, they really alleviated all our worries. Ben came to our apartment before the move to assess what we are moving and provided alot of helpful information about the things we planned on packing ourselves. The day of the move, the movers were very professional, courteous, efficient and very careful with our belongings. When the truck came to unload in our new apartment, the movers did a great job putting everything where it belongs. At the end, the move ended up costing us hundreds of dollars less than the original estimate, thanks to additonal tips from Boris. We also got the best price and service compared to other moving companies.We definetly recommend this company for moving. We are not planning to move anytime soon, but in the future if we need to move we would definetly use Basic Moving.\r\n\r\nThank You!\r\nNelly & Michael

All of my family's moves had been local until summer 2010 when we moved from Queens to Central Virginia. We usually find service providers through recommendation of friends and family, but it's a new millennium, so we went on the Internet and found Basic Moving, among others.\r\n\r\nThe other companies gave us a lot of double-talk and what we thought were lowball prices, but the website of Basic Moving looked legit, so we invited John Alfano to our home for an estimate. We were impressed with his knowledge and sincerity in speaking with us. He gave us what we thought was a fair price (not the lowest) so we decided to go with him and Basic. We had interviewed three other movers in person and spoke to numerous by phone. One of the moving companies we had used twice before successfully but we liked John of Basic's presentation better.\r\n\r\nI don't know what else to say except his crew came to our home on time. They were pleasant, and Stan, the foreman, was informative and helpful, he recognized the stress we were feeling. \r\n\r\nThe truck-loading went smoothly, our furniture and property arrived on time as well. A big, clean 53' trailer pulled up in front of our new home, painted with the name Basic Moving, and their logo, just like in the brochures. Different personnel unloaded the truck, but they were just as good. \r\n\r\nWe were not charged a penny more than the binding estimate. We are now pretty much unpacked and have found zero damage to our possessions. This company takes pride in doing a good job. We have already recommended them to business associates.\r\n\r\nWe never heard of Basic Moving before, but we are very glad we used them. They are definitely worth calling in for an estimate.\r\n\r\n

We usually find service providers through recommendation of friends and family, but it's a new millennium, so we went on the Internet and found Basic Moving, among others.\r\n\r\nThe other companies gave us a lot of double-talk and what we thought were lowball prices, but the website of Basic Moving looked legit, so we invited John Alfano to our home for an estimate. We were impressed with his knowledge and sincerity in speaking with us. He gave us what we thought was a fair price (not the lowest) so we decided to go with him and Basic. We had interviewed three other movers in person and spoke to numerous by phone. One of the moving companies we had used twice before successfully but we liked John of Basic's presentation better.\r\n\r\nI don't know what else to say except his crew came to our home on time. They were pleasant, and Stan, the foreman, was informative and helpful, he recognized the stress we were feeling. \r\n\r\nThe truck-loading went smoothly, our furniture and property arrived on time as well. A big, clean 53' trailer pulled up in front of our new home, painted with the name Basic Moving, and their logo, just like in the brochures. Different personnel unloaded the truck, but they were just as good. \r\n\r\nWe were not charged a penny more than the binding estimate. We are now pretty much unpacked and have found zero damage to our possessions. This company takes pride in doing a good job. We have already recommended them to business associates.\r\n\r\nWe never heard of Basic Moving before, but we are very glad we used them. They are definitely worth calling in for an estimate.\r\n\r\n

Pros: Professional from start to finish

i was very anxious about someone else moving my and my GF's stuff. i have heard many horror stories about movers ripping people off, damaging their furniture, and not showing up on time.\n\nwell, basic moving put me at ease. Stan was very professional and told me up front what was going on. he could tell i was a little nervous and he calmed me down. Russell and Taras were respectful and courteous as well.\n\nMy move was a local move in brooklyn and only took a couple of hours. Stan and his crew were careful with our stuff and wrapped up all the furniture in blankets and tape. \n\nI used friends to help and rented trucks before but no more! it was very convenient and easy to schedule the move with Basic Moving.\n\nI would recommend this company to all my friends.

Basic Moving is the BEST!! I moved to FLA from the BX 4/14 and John & Ben had my furniture delivered by 4/16, who knew it would be that quick!! 1st we met John. His professionalism and explanation of long distance moving and thoroughness was reassuring. Then my friend was almost hijacked by her moving company and I called John. Two days later Ben came. He was very concerned for us and made my friend and I feel very comfortable about Basic Moving NOW having to move 2 apartments full of furniture out of my apartment to 2 different addresses in FL. Well, even though my friend and I were still apprehensive Ben truly held our hand for almost a month after Stan and crew, who were terrific, fast and efficient!! Moved our things to storage before we actually left the BX. And WHO KNEW that 2 days after our arrival in FLA we would have our furniture delivered in a professional and timely manner by Dmitry and Wes. There are plenty of horror moving stories out there but it?s SO NICE to be able to give a GREAT reference to a very deserving Moving Co. BASIC MOVING & STORAGE of Brooklyn? Annette from the Bronx

AFTER BEING MISLED BY ANOTHER MOVING COMPANY, I FOUND BASIC MOVING THROUGH CITYSEARCH. I SPOKE TO BEN WHO LED ME THROUGH A THOROUGH QUESTIONARE AND GAVE ME A REASONABLE QUOTE. THE GUYS SHOWED UP ON TIME, WORKED DILIGENTLY AND MOST COMPETENTLY. NOT ONE ITEM WAS DAMAGED AND THE MOVE WAS DONE SO EFFICIENTLY (4TH FLOOR WALKUP) THAT THEY CAME IN 2 HOURS UNDER THE ESTIMATE. THEY WERE ABSOLUTELY AMAZING AND I WOULD ENCOURAGE ANYONE TO USE THEM FOR THEIR MOVE. THEY ARE ABSOLUTELY AWESOME!!!!

Moved last month from Brooklyn, NY to Akron, OH. Basic came when sheduled to pack and move me and arrived at my new home within five minutes of the time promised. Very professional and courteous movers; nothing was broken, damaged or lost.\r\n\r\nWhat the salesman, John Alfano, told me would happen actually happened.

Hi John (Ben and the famous Grace) - So, you're a man of your word. No hidden costs, no tricks and good service to boot. Your guys were great on both sides of the move, especially Stan (I hope that's his name...the move is a bit of a blur already). Everything got here in one piece and in about a week, which I gather is pretty good for almost cross-country. This was even with losing a day to 21 inches of snow.\nAnyhow, I'm glad you contacted me to follow through on my past move experience. I have been meaning to thank you for your patience and help with the move, but have been happily distracted with setting up house here; not to mention a few trips to Sin City. The fact that I've been here two weeks and I am actually ahead on the gambling is mind-boggling to me. Maureen and I are having a ball and wish you well back in Brooklyn. I will recommend you to my family and friends, and at any time you may use me as a reference.\nThank you Basic Moving Team.\nIra\n

I had about 80 boxes, a king size bed, a 3 piece sofa, and about 100 other things, and was very anxious about my move. \r\nI found Basic moving on citysearch, and after reading reviews I decided to go with them. \r\nAt the time, I was a bit skeptical because I didn't know if the reviews were real or written by the company itself.\r\nBut I can tell you that Stan and his crew of 3 other guys did an AMAZING job. They finished an hour earlier than the estimate. They were very careful with everything. They barely took a break at all. They were very polite to both me and my wife.\r\nOverall, the move was painfree and if I ever move again, I will definitely use Basic Moving. \r\nGreat job guys!\r\n-Fisch

I recently moved to a different apartment and called Basic Moving. They did a wonderful job and I would recommend them highly. Three men showed up right on time. Stan, the team leader, explained the paperwork clearly. They took the time to carefully wrap and/or disassemble big furniture like the china cabinet and futon and didn't break anything. They also charged by the hour and came extraordinarily close to their estimated time-frame.I would use them again and recommend them to my friends.

Before I booked my movers, many people gave me advice about either getting a flat rate or going with an hourly rate. And although I understand why the majority of the people recommended flat rate, I decided to try Basic Movers and an hourly rate. The flat rate quote from another company was about $1000. Basic Movers estimated my move to be about $600 - and I actually ended up paying $450. So I can say this much - Basic Movers did not try to con me in any way. They were up-front and they delivered. The guys came on-time, packed up the furniture and breakables nicely, were professional and they were very fast. Overall they were a great team and I am happy to recomend them. One tip to people who are moving - ORGANIZE your boxes and everything you are moving before the movers get there. That is the key. We color coded each item with where it would go in the new house (went to staples and just bough different color stickys) - then laid out the plan for the movers based on the color coding. That helped make it go very fast as there was no debate once you got to the new house on where things were suppoed to go.

I called this company on Thursday for a Saturday move and they were able to squeeze me in. I only had them move my furniture from a two bedroom apartment in a two flight walkup in Boreum Hill to a two bedroom in a two family house in Bay Ridge. \r\n\r\nThe movers showed up a 1/2 hour earlier than scheduled, wrapped the furniture, disassembled two pieces, and loaded the van in 2 hours. It took them about 20 minutes to get to Bay Ridge and finished the job in 4 hours. The furniture made it in one piece with minor nicks and scratches which can easily be covered with a furniture marker. \r\n\r\nI used 4 guys which definately helped with time. I would suggest moving any boxes ahead of time to reduce the cost, if possible. I definatley could see a move taking over 6 hours for a two bedroom if they are moving boxes and furniture. The guys were professional and a pleasure to work with.

Our move was a pretty long-distance one - we moved from NJ to CA so I was really concerned how things will work out. I chose Basic Moving as they have a plan for all your needs and answers to all your questions. I did not choose the cheap companies as they proved not to be loyal even at the first contacts I had with them. \r\nJohn Alfano made a custom offer after he saw all that needed to be moved. He took the extra mile to revise my binding contract two times to fit my needs. I never got charged a penny more than he estimated. The movers showed up on time and had everything packed in no time. All my valuables, perishable items and electronics were taken great care of and arrived at the destination in perfect shape. \r\nThe packing was made really professionally so noting got broken. The delivery was scheduled as per our convenience - just great!!!\r\nOnce again - I recommend Basic Moving to anyone.\r\nThank you John, Grace and NJ & CA boys. Best wishes for the future. I wish you that all your customers are as happy as I am :)

From start to finish, I found Basic Moving extremely helpful. Ben came over to do an estimate and it was very accurate. The price on my contract was what I paid. No hidden agendas. Ben called before, during, and after the move to make sure everything was good. After over a month of researching moving companies, I'm glad I found Basic. I highly recommend using them in the future.

My husband and I relocated from Manhattan to St. Louis. We interviewed several moving companies, and Basic had the best combination of price and reputation. We set a date for the move, and the company was very good about keeping in touch with us, and friendly to boot. On moving day, they were in and out ridiculously fast. We got our belongings just days later, which we were very happy about. Everything was intact - nothing broken, and all our furniture/TVs well protected from scratches and breaks. There's also something to be said for the fact that they quoted us a price and stuck to it - no adding ""unexpected"" costs later. Go with Basic Moving, they're great!

These guys are absolute pros. Also, the in-home estimate and delivery of all the boxes and packing materials you'd need take so much of the stress out of moving. I'd received some cheaper quotes from other movers, but I was won over by their professional manner when they came to my apartment for the estimate.\n\nThey moved my wife and me from Brooklyn to Chicago in just a few days, and our stuff showed up without a scratch. These guys were worth the money, and I've already recommended them to a few friends who are moving soon.

I would like to thank the team at Basic Moving. Very professional service, price was very competitive. \n\nBasic Moving took care of my management moving from NYC to Florida. They had to deal with different stops, heavy and high quality furniture. Everything went perfectly well. \n\nThe movers were very professional and very careful with the furniture but also with the logistic. No surprises with final price...exactly in line with the estimate. Delivery in Miami 2 days after pick up in NYC.\n\nI have to say that after all my bad past experiences (I did organize many moving since few years), I am very happy today to be able to write this review. \n\nVery satisfying experience.

Fabulous! Our recent move from New Jersey to North Carolina (last week) with Basic Moving was a stress-free and very pleasant experience. We were delighted by the acceptance to our short notice of move (1 day). The team that arrived to collect the furniture was on time and completed the job in pre-informed time. They were professional and handled our stuff with most care. We were explained all the paper-work and charges (a Binding Price - No surprises after the furniture is collected) in detail earlier by their senior estimator. Nothing was hidden. Even the two-member team that delivered the furniture arrived at pre-requested date/time, they also gave a prior 24-hour notice of arrival confirmation. This team completed the tasks in pre-informed time. All the furniture was assembled into place. No delays at all! Their office was always communicating with me on the status through the transportation period.\r\nOverall, a very satisfying experience. I will certainly recommend them to one and all.

Basic Moving followed through on all their promises. It was a difficult move to estimate. John took my spreadsheet and provided me with a binding estimate. I was skeptical that the estimate would be honored as stated. However, when the movers arrived on the day of the move, there were no hidden costs, no add ons.\r\nThe movers were professional. They worked from the moment they came to the door until the job of packing crystal, Lenox china, Hummels and my mom's solid wood furniture was complete. They worked for six hours without breaks or lunch. It was a full service move and I would never do it any other way. After seeing their packing expertise, I would never consider doing my own packing.\r\n\r\nThe truck left my mom's house in Toms River, New Jersey and arrived at an apartment complex in Sarasota, Florida. The movers worked extremely hard using elevators and long hallways to haul the furniture to the apartment location. Because of difficulties with getting large furniture through small thresholds and weight limits on elevators, the move lasted until 1 AM. Even at that hour the movers were professional right to the end.\r\n\r\nI unpacked the last box yesterday. With 60 boxes of fragile items, only one small item was broken. I was shocked. Again, I expected the worst and was pleasantly surprised. I guess I listened to too many mover horror stories.\r\n\r\nJohn Alfano stayed in touch with me before, during and after the move.

These guys really know how to do their job. \r\n\r\nFrom the get go, I dealt with a representative on the phone who was super friendly and courteous, and he spelled out exactly how the fees work. No surprise charges or anything like that on the the day of the move, which was what I'd feared from reading reviews of other companies. He talked me through ways to make it cheaper versus ways to make it easier on me, which I really appreciated. I called with questions while I was preparing for the move and again, he was very helpful. They seemed to really want the move to go as smoothly as I did. \r\n\r\nI had no idea what to expect because I'd never hired movers before. The first thing they did was to very clearly explain exactly what they were going to do (while the other guys were already getting started). I was AMAZED by how quickly they worked! And when they used their own packing supplies, they tried to keep the cost down to as little as practical. That one kind of shocked me. \r\n\r\nI have an upright piano and very narrow stairs. These guys could have given up but they were determined to make it work. They were all sweaty and red from exertion when all was said and done but they didn't even complain. So awesome... And they were very careful not to damage the floors or my furniture - very carefully blanketed everything. \r\n\r\nFriendliness: check. Professionalism: check. Good value: check. And they're green, too! Love that. I'll use these guys again in a heartbeat. I DEFINITELY recommend them to anyone.

I would like to say that the folks at Basic Moving were great to work with. Everyone that I worked with were very responsive and professional. John made himself available to me promptly whenever I called with a question. Basic Moving provided full disclosure and educated me to my rights as a consumer. The price was reasonable and there were no surprises. I had my furniture moved from Staten Island to Miami and my move went well without any delays and at the scheduled time. I would recommend Basic Movers without hesitation.

Pros: Reliable, Professional, well-priced

This was the easiest move I've had. \r\nFrom the initial contact on the phone, everyone is professional, courteous and clear about pricing and extra fees. \r\nYes, and their pricing is very fair. \r\nThe booking process was fast and I had no questions because every detail was explained by the end of the call. \r\nThe movers were polite, efficient and did their best to get the job completed. \r\nThis company is genuine, a real keeper. I recommend them and will use them again.

After a long research of all of the moving companies I came upon Basic Moving via Best Business Bureau. They were highly rated and recommended. And it was absolutely true. Other companies give you a window of 3 days for a pick up and a window of 10 days for delivery. These guys give you exact time and date for pick up and they were on time. They were very accurate and clean when wrapping up the furniture. Everything was delivered in the same condition as picked up. Guys were friendly and fast. Moved from NYC to FL... I would use them again... ;-) GO BASIC
