We chose Bumblebee on Apple Storage's recommendation for our two part move to & from storage. The crew was very friendly and accommodating. Our experience is very similar to Johnathon's where they acted like they were taking good care of our belongings and in the beginning we tended to dismiss the few negatives that occurred but the points below eventually added up to enough disappointments that we would not recommend them in good conscience.
• As our belongings were going into storage we requested in advance for new wardrobe boxes and were told they would be available on the day of the move instead we received dirty old ratty boxes that appeared to have been used as floor mats. If only they would have been forthcoming about the condition at the time of the request we would have been fine to source our own wardrobe boxes.
• They had trouble securing plastic covers on the couches and ended up partially shrink-wrapping them. They told us that the plastic would go on when the couches reached storage...we had to discover on our own that it didn't happen.
• I probably would not be making this point if damages were minimal but we find ourselves scratching our heads on how some of the damages could have even occurred with the 4-5 person crews and 5-10 minute street distance. With the exception of the lead the crews were young (college age and younger). My adage is young adults/kids don't own anything of significance so why should they treat the belongings of others with care.
This experience taught us that no matter how much money or time given don't trust that paid labour services will get the job done right. Source widely known professional movers that conduct business with some agreeable level of standards and don't let the move be completely unattended after it departs your front door by participating at each stage of the move.
