This is my first review on the movers i hired to move my apt. In summary: they are extremely bad. To elaborate on my experience:
I picked these movers from CraigsList (should have gone with someone who had reviews online but my bad i booked last minute as i wasn't sure if i can take day off for packing). The guy's name is Andre, he says no hidden charges, 60$ per hour for 2 Men and a trunk + 10$ toll. When they came they moved really slow (my apt is 1 BR and it was a furnished one by owner, so i had no furtniture except 2 mattresses to move). They deliberately took more time (which is still fine its an extra hour to pay for), but once we got to the new apt, they stopped the truck and he asked for money. He listed new charges such as 10$ for TV (I have been moving for 10 years and never had any movers ask extra money for packing TV), 8% tax (Andre did not mention this). And he refuses to move the stuff inside (at 11 PM midnight we get into argument).
Finally, i decided to not pay him for any of that crappy charges, i decided to call the cops if needed, after i raised my voice and 45 minutes of argument he moved the stuff inside. He even shamelessly asked for tip before moving the stuff.
Don't hire these guys, their number is 718-801-5145 (they are from brooklyn).
