First time hiring professional movers

First time hiring professional movers so I was a bit nervous about the costs and how it would go. Took a lot of time looking for the most reasonably-priced, highly reviewed company and I am so glad I chose Benny’s Moving and Storage.

Two guys showed up a half hour early (after calling to make sure that was OK), and got the move done in the freezing February. No surprise fees or costs, everything is included in the long distance rate rate and my final fee was calculated by the list of items. The final bill was $2500 for moving from Boston to Florida and the poor guy went through the trouble of explaining to me that there was the charges.

I had a large bedroom and quite a few furniture pieces to move; with a ton of boxes (maybe 20-30, some very heavy). They wrapped my furniture in blankets and secured everything like utter professionals. Final cost with a yelp coupon was pennies compared to the hassle of moving myself.

Benny’s is legit. Will definitely hire again the next time I move. Thanks Guys, hope you didn’t get pneumonia!

My move from Boston to New York City

This was my best move ever. And I’ve lived in 5 apartments in NYC, a few in Los Angeles, and just moved to NYC. These guys were seriously the best and smoothest move I’ve EVER had, with zero problems and, just as important, no hidden fees. The extremely reasonable price we were quoted for labor, travel, etc. was exactly what our move cost us in the end $2200.

what a great experience moving from Boston to New York, They were exactly on time to our Boston apartment and loaded up REALLY quickly—with just two dudes (Terry and Marvin), too. Because trucks must take the highway instead of the parkway through Connecticut, we beat our movers to NYC by a couple of hours, but we never had to worry about where they were, because they kept us informed of their whereabouts via phone calls during their entire trip. When they got to New York, they unloaded just as quickly, even though we’re on a second floor walkup here as compared to our former Boston elevator building. Stan was crazy-drenched in sweat by the end, but clearly didn’t care, and Terry  a Pro mover.

We’ll definitely use them again.
