I absolutely dread moving – the packing, purging, organizing, list-making …but do you know what I hate the most? Finding a reputable and FAIR moving company. I have moved throughout Brooklyn three times (not for the faint of heart, as most of us long-time city-dwellers know), and each time I had to call half a dozen moving companies for estimates. That meant waiting for estimators to show up, walking each one through my move and spending time I didn’t have to end up with half a dozen estimates that were all over the map in terms of pricing. If I had to tell someone one more time that I wasn’t taking the box spring with me, I would have collapsed on the mattress myself.
Once I collected all the estimates, I had a jumble of papers in front of me, all with varied line items. One quoted four wardrobe boxes, another one said six – it was like comparing completely different moves. Sometimes I felt like I was doing eenie mienie minie moe, crossing my fingers and throwing salt over my back when I finally decided on one. Would they get there on time, with everything intact, and oh- would the price be the same as was quoted? Not a chance.
