Moving recommendations

Hey-

I'm moving towards the end of the month and looking for advice on who to hire (or avoid) for a local move. We're just going from SLU to Mt. Baker/Columbia City area. Any personal experience or recommendations greatly appreciated.

Additionally, any places worth checking out in the Columbia City neighborhood (other than the places on Rainier)? I've gotten spoiled living so close to Fremont and downtown. I don't really know this neighborhood very well yet.  Thanks in advance for any wisdom.

I've used three local moving companies for my Mom. Stay away from Action and America's Moving Machines. Two Men And A Truck out of Kirkland were okay, and even helped me reassemble her bed off the clock, which I had disassembled myself to save on time. With any mover, make certain their quote includes travel time, or you may get a big surprise at the end.

We used Puget Sound Moving twice last year, and they were great. They charge by the hour and their quote includes gas and some packing materials (they wrap certain items in plastic or blankets). You can choose how large a crew you want and give the scheduler an idea of what you need to have moved (safes, large furniture pieces, how many stairs the house has, etc) for a quote over the phone.

Shoot. I tried to post a link. Adam's Moving & Delivery Service = amazing. Seriously.

Good luck!

My coworker and his neighbor and I have/are using Motivated Movers. So far, so good.

A-Ray's took 5.5 hours to move a 1-bedroom 1 mile. Never again.
