Any reviews of Collins Bros Moving out of NY?

Postby jc428 » Thu May 21, 2015 9:03 am

I'm moving from Brooklyn to CO in late July/early August 2015, anyone use Collins Bros moving or have another suggestion? Joyce is an option but they cant do an in home estimate in NYC right now. Thanks.

Here's the Protectyourmove.gov screenshot on them:

Notice they are currently inactive, meaning they are currently not licensed to perform moves.

You might also check with Anna's Movers and All Star to see if they can do it, otherwise, you could try one of the Van Lines or check our super list here:

Make sure you get three in-home estimates. Once you do, come back and we can help you research your companies.

WAIT!!!!

Collins Brothers is an Atlas agent, which explains why they don't carry their own interstate license. Please continue your talks with them!

If at all possible, you should get two more in-home estimates. If you can't possibly get anyone to send an estimator to your place because it is small, then a ballpark will be acceptable because your shipment will possibly be below their minimum anyway. If it's because your place is hard to get to, then that's all the more reason a rep from the company should come and see the layout.

Thanks! Yes, they are an Atlas Provider. I have two other estimates. Oz movers and Joyce movers.
