Massive Table and Heavy Furniture in Tight Spaces

There are no words I can use to truly describe how amazing my experience with Men on the Move was. From the initial phone call consultation, to when the job was completed, George, Chris and Dustin were true professionals that handled the complexities of the job with ease and took great precautions to safeguard my home and items!

The job started by having to transport a 12' long, gargantuan solid wood table with non-removable legs. To say the table is heavy is an understatement. Combined with the fact that the monstrous table is awkward to carry and had to be maneuvered around a single exit door made this no easy task. The execution had Chris moving backwards down 3 stairs while George and Dustin carefully positioned the monolithic table to get the legs out the door and out of the house!

Once at the new destination, more fun began! I only had 8 other items to bring into the house, though these items too were heavy, bulky and were required to be moved through very tight and narrow spaces. George, Chris and Dustin handled the task in stride though! When they ran into complications regarding a screen door being non-removable, they took the items back to another entry point with very little room to work around. They planned methodically, before moving the pieces which was critical, as once inside, there was no way to turn the items around before the stairs. I was so impressed that they treated my home as if it was their own, careful not to damage any walls or light fixtures and placing protective pads around any area that required. Piece by piece was brought in (carefully shrinkwrapped of course), and placed in their desired locations. I appreciated that they allowed me to place felt pads on all the items as well so that I would be able to move them after as well.

George, Chris and Dustin also took great respect for my time. They were very efficient, didn't waste time, while at the same time did not rush. It is clear that they take great pride in their craft!

The last task was to get the mythical, colossal table into the new house. It had to go through the side of the house, to the backyard, make a full turn and then finally into the house. It was no easy task, but the men were more that up to the challenge. We got the legendary table into the house where it will live on and outlast all of us! George took me through an exit walk-through to make sure I was completely satisfied (which of course I was!), before heading on their way.

Men on the Move were a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. They were patient, had great planning and execution skills and protected my home and furniture where other companies would have likely given up or would have tried to renege on the agreement. I would recommend Men on the Move to anyone who is looking for a serious company that will take the time to do the job right at a fair price!

Thanks for helping turn my house into a home!
