Before I begin gushing about Cargo Cabbie, let me give you the bottom line: your search can end here. Go with Cargo Cabbie, you will not regret it.
The crew at Cargo Cabbie, from Hilary in the office to Javier/Dale/John in the crew were extremely pleasant, professional, responsive, and meticulous.
The Cargo Cabbie team set a great impression even before any face-to-face contact was made. Hilary was upfront and provided clear, realistic estimates for packing services and moving services. She responded quickly to any questions we had and was very helpful in every aspect of planning the job. We had a last-minute change of date that they accommodated quickly.
We knew our confidence in our selection was justified when the folks at Cargo Cabbie pulled into the tight back alley/loading entrance of our building at precisely 9:30 AM, as scheduled. When they arrived, they were friendly and ready to get cracking right away. When they loaded our items into their truck, they wrapped every single piece of furniture snug into blankets and were incredibly careful with every item. I would be very surprised if our furniture touched any wall, door, or other piece of furniture at any point during the move. They had my entire apartment empty within less than two hours.
Our new apartment is only accessible by three flights of stairs, all twisty and narrow. To make things worse, the bedroom of the apartment involved another very narrow, steep stair. Although Javier and the crew were daunted, they worked extremely hard and set about the challenge with smiles on their faces and got everything done hours faster than I would have imagined. Mind you, this involved lugging a 300-pound bed up four flights of narrow, twisty stairs.
I have a lot of unused superlatives in my pocket, all of which apply to the Cargo Cabbie crew. I won't overdo it because I'm sure they'll sound mythical by the time I'm through. However, I will say this much: Javier and his crew legitimately care about doing a good job. They are meticulous and do everything right, but they won't waste your time either. Our move could have been a nightmare - instead, we were able to get through it quickly and in such good order that we are now 80% unpacked after 48 hours. I have legitimately seen lawyers who are less detail-oriented than Javier.
If you care about your things, if you have any stress about moving at all - call these guys and they will make sure it happens in good order. There is no question that every dollar you spend with Cargo Cabbie is worth it.
