Help. Now.

A week or so ago, I asked several New York communities for recommendations for movers.

Of the (measly) four that I got, only one moves to or from Pittsburgh.

I just got off the phone with them, and their rates were (IMO) less than stellar.

I need a referral for an interstate mover. NOW. Ideally one who also offers storage.

Please: Anyone who's used professional movers to move to or leave Pittsburgh: Tell me who you used. I need to get at least one more quote, and I'm really wary of calling movers that no one has given me a personal referral for.

I didn't move here directly from NYC, but instead in a very roundabout manner, nor did I use a professional mover. I just now checked the website for Moishe's Moving, a company I used to see all over creation, and it seems they do engage in some interstate moving, so you might look into them as a possibility--I think they have a pretty good rep.

How funny.

My Mom moved my aunt from Arizona to Pittsburgh a few years back with a company whose name she couldn't recall. She *did* say it was Jewish and in Brooklyn, so I googled and found Moishe's.

I talked with a woman there earlier today and she said she'd get back to me with a quote. So far, I'm still waiting.

aaronbenedict wonders if they'll be closed the next two days for Shavuos. I suppose I'm about to find out.

Nope, not closed for Shavuos.

And sadly, her estimate made that first estimate look cheap. :(

Too bad about the costs. Would you be able to rent a U-Haul? I'm pretty sure that you drive, right?

Have you talked to Don Farr Moving yet?
May. 18th, 2010 09:16 pm (UTC)
I have not.

You've heard good things?

They helped move my stuff from Florida to Pittsburgh, and my dad knows someone there, but I forgot who. Call them and see what they say....

Just requested a quote via their website. Thanks.

(and why did no one in the pittsburgh community suggest them?)

My husband works for them and can probably hook you up. I just talked to him, and he said he could either get someone to call you personally or get you a number for the "right" person.

OMG yes! Please!

I'm at work now and into the evening, so I would need to talk to someone tomorrow am. hopita at aol dot com. 688 dash 9067 at home, 996 dash 3583 on cell. Both in the 412.

You are my new best friend ever. :)

Michael forwarded me this:

Tell your friend to call Ms. Anita at 800-460-9333 at ext 195. Tell her to tell Ms. Anita that she is a friend of Michael Wegman and would like some help. We have several options she can use. Also tell her that if Ms. Anita doesn’t answer to please leave her a voicemail and she will call her back. What was your friend’s name?

I sent him your info, and he said you should receive a call from Anita White in the morning. (It's Wegman with a hard G, just like the grocery store.) I hope they can help you out!

Just got off the phone with her. She's still working on the estimate but thus far it's been a much more pleasant experience than the other movers I've spoken with.

Fingers crossed!
May. 19th, 2010 04:08 pm (UTC)
Awesome. I hope it works out.
May. 20th, 2010 07:39 pm (UTC)
Hey --

She had said she was going to email me some numbers but I've yet to receive them.

She asked if she should mail them to "the hospital address" and I corrected her that it was "hopita," and spelled it for her, but I worry that maybe she still got it mixed up.

I can call her tomorrow, but if either of you are speaking with her today, or know her email address, would you let her know that I'm still waiting at hopita at aol dot com. H-O-P-I-T-A. Not "hospital."
May. 20th, 2010 07:52 pm (UTC)
Heh. Okay, I'll call Michael.
May. 20th, 2010 08:03 pm (UTC)
Here is Anita's e-mail address, and Michael said he just sent her an e-mail with your correct e-mail address. Heh. Hope this clears it up.

May. 20th, 2010 08:49 pm (UTC)
Awesome. Thanks. I just dropped her an email two seconds ago.

have you checked movingscams.com they have a ton of listings on who to and not to use?
May. 19th, 2010 12:03 am (UTC)
Are you sure you have the URL right? That site doesn't look like anything but a big ad.
May. 19th, 2010 12:41 am (UTC)
oops. thats movingscam.com

[Error: Irreparable invalid markup ('<lj-user="ratphooey">') in entry. Owner must fix manually. Raw contents below.]

Ask <lj-user="Ratphooey"> who moved her parents here from Pittsburgh. They did a pretty decent job.
