THE Relationship Blog

As you may have read or heard or seen on this site, we just moved. It wasn’t one of those ‘down the street’ kind of moves. It wasn’t a move to nicer neighborhood or bigger house. We moved from one side of the United States to another. As if that wasn’t enough, we moved from Miami where the elevation was in the negative numbers to the mountains of San Bernardino County of California. We moved from a place where the population developed gills to be able to breathe the humidity ladened air to a place that redefines dryness and the air is thin.

We have been discussing this move in our weekly web show, Making the Move on Mingle Media TV. We have discussed the logistical, practical and emotional aspects of a move for a family. Logistics were completely taken out of our control because we were moved by the wonderful hands of America’s Moving Services. We had nothing to fear regarding our possessions. They were extremely professional and handled the pick-up of our housewares with aplomb. While we fretted whether we would ever see our keepsakes, the great people of America’s Moving Services inventoried every one of our possessions, numbered the boxes and set about nestling our stuff for the 3000 mile trip. We were called by the main office to assure us that everything was on schedule. In fact, our driver contacted us and gave us updates as to his progress.

Our belongings arrived in California just 10 days after they set off on their long journey. This may seem long to the uninitiated but trust us, it’s not. Sixteen years ago, we left Los Angeles and moved to Miami. We contracted someone who was recommended by several families. He loaded his truck one day and we did not see it again for over a month. Then, to add insult to injury, he held it hostage until we paid him more money to get our belongings. But the very best part was the fact that he had Lee unload the truck, stole several of our boxes and even left some of them with other families. It was only because these other families were responsible and called the number on the boxes that we were able to retrieve our shoes and some of our daughter’s toys. Our experience with America’s Moving Services was nothing like this. Honestly, they made the move so smooth that aside from packing (which we did not have them do but they do offer the service), they have taken the headache out of moving completely.

Our movers arrived and quickly emptied their truck. Granted, in Miami they ran between getting boxes and dropping them off. The new house has a great view but the price is a steep driveway followed by 12 concrete steps, 10 wooden steps and then in the house another 20. These men were very professional.

The best part of all of this? We received all of our goods unscathed! Not one glass was broken or shoe missing. Everything was exactly as we had packed it and it all arrived safe and sound. We would like to thank America’s Moving Services for their professionalism in this endeavor. They made a stressful situation easy and we deeply appreciate them.

America’s Moving Services are proud sponsors of Making The Moving on MingleMediaTV.
