Moving Companies?

Need suggestions on movers... cross country. I wanted to get someone lined up so we're ready when the house sells... i looked into Mayflower and Allied, but haven't decided on which one.. so, any suggestions?

I met the owner of Paul Arpin at a Bears sponsor dinner. He was a really cool guy and does all the cross country stuff. Check them out, he's the one that moves the bears players after they fail misserably here




HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

Two Men and Truck are really good. Its kind of a smaller company, I use them all the time. Give them a call, they are very cheap and do a good job. How far are you moving?

<---- Sky http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v8.../FIREdevil.gif As of 5.25.05 my bike has 28,000 miles. (Goal of 40,000 by the end of the year.)

Well they call me the breeze, cause I keep blowin down the road

My company moved me from NJ using Graebel last year. They did an awsome job.

I am a T/T driver for Allied. Send me a PM if you would like some contact info. We are located out of Elmhurst for the household division. I drive for a contractor for Hassett Allied and I'd have to ask my boss whether he can arrange the full move or have to go through Hassett themselves. We have our own crew, tractor and a straight truck. It depends mostly on how much stuff you have. If it's around <>12,000 pounds, we could probably just use the 24' box straight truck. Just let me know and I'll see what I can come up with.

Take a chance and give a chance

PODS is actually very cheap, $200 with a month of storage included...but I wanted someone to physicaly come and move my stuff. PODS does not do that. Anybody know anyone else?
