I received a quote by e-mail, after telling him what I had. The three movers arrived just towards the end of their stated time, but they had me out of my place in a little less then a hour, I was billed for their time without any added costs. I tipped about $20/person, grateful that nothing was broken or stolen, and was pleasantly surprised with how quick and efficient they were.

All three of the guys were professional, courteous and very friendly. I would go with BMS again and have already recommended them to friends for if they need to move.

All the BAD reviews below are right on. Ron, Ruben and Daniel are a joke. I was quoted $264.00 and ended up paying over 1000.00 because of "packing materials" Washer broken, missing items. No response to a BB complaint, are being investigated by the PUC, aren't currently insured or licenced to do business in the state of CA. The Ron S. who did the review below is the "supposed owner" of the company. Look under other name of "Advanced Moving Company" ...Check with the BB website - there is nothing but bad reviews.

STAY AWAY!!

They have a suspended Ca PUC permit as of 10/13/2008 and are not legally permitted to move anyone or get compensation for it They were fined by the FMCSA in May 2008 for federal law violations. They keep changing the weight certificates that say what your weight is. They give you a very low quote. That changes once they have your deposit and your goods. Ron, the owner and district manager, boasts that any good reviews on web sites are done by his employees. If you inquire about bad reviews, he will say that" they were a very difficult customer from the beginning and nothing would please them "They will lie about everything. They will keep jacking up the price. They have other names they go by. CHS, Transportation, Inc, We Are Moving and Storage, We Are Moving and Storage,SM&S, and Better Way 2 Move. They have a new business now called " ASAP Relocations "They are all based in San Jose, Sunnyvale and Sacramento, CA. Do your research. Find another company.

Do not use this compnay!!! I hired them for $280 to move my one bedroom apartment 20 miles. They loaded my items then presented me a bill for $4,000 and said they had done additional services I now needed to pay for. I did not ask for or authorize additional services. I pressed them for an itemization of the $4,000 and he could not present one. They then threatened to impound my items unless I paid. They are an organized crime front to extort money from people, do not hire them no matter how nice they seem or how strait foreward and binding their quote appears to be! and beware of false positive reviews since their Manger/Owner bragged to me that it is part of his secretaries job to regularly write positive reviews on many web sites to counter all the negative ones!

I had the great misfortune of using Better Way to Move to move my wife and I last Thursday (May 1st) a mere 8.5 miles. Not only did the movers show up three hours late, but I ended up having to pay $960 for an estimated $440 move, that was exacted by virtual extortion tactics. (Once they've got your stuff loaded, they've got you right where they want you!) It didn't even take them four hours to complete the move, they didn't unpack or reassemble anything, and didn't even take away their own wrapping trash.

Hire these people if you want to pay 2-3 times too much for a crappy job.

I hired Better Way To Move on the recommendation of a friend.
I was not dissapointed.
They were on time, called 1 hr before to let me know they were on their way. Moved all without a scratch , carried 2-3 boxes at a time.
I have moved too many times in my life,honestly, these guys really were streets ahead of the rest.

Ron (the owner of the company) came to our 1-BR condo in SF to look at our stuffs to give a quote. He wrote a quote of $820 (including $300 for packing and $520 for the move based on $80/hour for a 3-man crew).

On the day of the move, his men told us that we would have to pay an extra $2000.00 for packing materials in addition to the cost however long it takes based on $80/hour.

Ron told us that we should agree with the extra cost so that his men can start the move. We will file a complaint to the Business Bureau.

My wife and I hired this company to move us only to have them over charge us, destroy a two thousand grandfather clock, show up late, soil our new carpet and leave items packed for us to unpack. This company is very deceiving and should not be trusted. Make sure you have everything in writing and completely understand what you are going to be charged. The cost for the movers is fair it is the packing materials where they get you. For our two bedroom house they charged us a total of two thousand dollars with sixteen hundred of the total being shrink wrap, bubble wrap and boxes. In the process they totally destroyed our grandfather clock and did not tell us. They tell you once the move is complete they will inspect your furniture with you to make sure there is no damage. We were told they were out of time and if we wanted them to finish we would be charged another hour for three movers. We are seniors citizens and they had our furniture on their truck and demanded that we pay before they would unload our furniture. Basically we felt our furniture was being held for ransom and if we did not pay they would take our furniture. The head movers name was Yossi and he required that we give him five hundred cash and charge the rest on a credit card. He also asked that I not contact the main office since he was discounting the job to not exceed two thousand dollars. My niece used another company and spent eleven hundred dollars for a 4 bedroom house.We were scammed by crooks. BEWARE: Don't be their next victim.
