Re: Manchester Movers, Manchester CT

Perhaps they should go on the blacklist? My mom used them. Picking up in Hartford CT she said there were no problems. Upon getting her stuff in Portland OR, the driver came and said he had to go find help. He came back with a drug addict and a guy so fat that he didn't do anything. My mom had to fol...

Re: Tipping Your Loaders/Full-Service Movers

Well since no one asnswered my question, and the quote came to $2500, I tipped $60 each way. I think it is bullshit to NOT give a tip or just feed an water the workers unlless they are doing a bad job. I tip the woman who colors my hair 20% but I don't have to tip the guy that just hauled 3000 lbs o...

Re: MOVING BOXES & PACKING MATERIALS

I found that Uhaul was much cheaper than affordableboxes.com which doesn't offer free shipping to most areas.

Re: Cheapest and best way to pack/ship a large plasma tv

Just wanted to update that I ended up putting an ad on Craigslist for the box and not less than 10 minutes later a man called saying that he was getting a 42 in plasma delivered the next day. He gave me the box and the foam and I'm all set and the movers can take it now. It is a good thing too becau...

Re: Cheapest and best way to pack/ship a large plasma tv

I wonder how much that would cost? This is a $1500 TV. And I had called them yesterday asking to see if they had a box that would fit my tv and they never mentioned it. Huh. Best buy were total assholes. They have so many tv's and they refused to help me even though I spent 1500 at their store. They...

Re: Tipping Your Loaders/Full-Service Movers

How about $3500 for a 3000 mile road trip? How much do I tip both ways?

Re: Cheapest and best way to pack/ship a large plasma tv

Okay one more question.

I called UPS and they have a box that will fit the tv. What if I pack it myself with bubble wrap so it doesn't move and move it myself. I am driving to Seattle from Philly. If i make sure it is vertical and does not move, what are my chances of breaking it?

TY

Cheapest and best way to pack/ship a large plasma tv

I have a 42 inch plasma tv and my movers quoted me 820$ to pack and move it. No way am I paying that. What is the best way to pack this thing? I cannot find a box in any of the box websites for plasmas. To save money I want to pack it and take it in my car. Or if I can find a good price, have someon...

Re: US Express Moving Systems, Inc- NJ to CA

Thanks for this post. I almost decided to go with this company as well. I ended up writing them an e-mail asking them how they can possibly make money with one truck, especially during a coast to coast move. Thank god I saw this thread. There are no bad reports on this company so I was thinking that...
