If you are considering moving, please do not use shleppers. Below was my experience with shleppers when they moved my stuff from NY to MI in June 2013. I finally got around to post my experience as I had promised.
The booking and payment was fairly easy and the mover arrived on time on the day of the move. They look professional and I was actually impressed by the co-ordination.
They carefully packed everything. However they did not bring enough packing material and had to use the leftover that we had. All the same I thought they did a very good Job and gave them a huge tip (regrets!). Immediately they left my house, I could not find my I-pad. I had kept it in one of the closets in the bedroom away from what needed to be packed. During the packing one of the guys somehow thought we were packing the clothes in this closet and was packing them until we stopped him. We had informed them what needed to be packed and mentioned that things in the closet were not included. When the I -pad was missing we then realized he wanted to steal those valuables in the closet and that explained his behavior. I called Shleppers office immediately to report the stolen
I-pad but the response was not encouraging. Someone called later to take more information but that was all.
MY stuff did not arrive in MI until a week after the scheduled date, but the worse aspect is that no one called to inform me of the delay and whenever I called no one could give me information ,and I was transferred from one staff to the other. Then they promised to call back and never did.
When my property finally arrived at MI, a lots was wrong. A whole box was missing. My bed was broken and the TV stand was deformed. They had packed the TV in NY ( we paid for the packing), but on arrival in MI they refuse to set -up the TV, saying we did not pay for setting up.
I called to inform shleppers office that a box was missing, then they informed me that one box got ripped in their storage and they tried to salvage stuffs inside, but I made them understand that we can not find any of the stuffs in that box.
I promised shleppers I will write a review on my experience. It has been about 5 months, and I am finally doing that. If you love yourself, stay away from Shleppers. Do not let them steal or destroy your goods. This is my story.
I've never been more satisfied with a service. These guys are AMAZING! I'm recommending the dream team to everyone!!!!
No complaints here. The movers were very professional. They actually showed up early. The overall experience was excellent. They did a wonderful job and Exceeded expections. They deserve to be rewarded for their excellent work
I just had to take time to write this comment about Shleppers. I was given an estimate for my move. Steven came, he itemized each item and he estimated the cost and guess what? That's what I actually paid for the move. I couldn't believe it. From my and everyone I know experience once your belongings are on the truck your items are held hostage until you agree to pay whatever crazy increase they NOW tell you that you owe. For example tape, boxes and materials that could run you an extra $1500 - $2000 or so just like that. You always hear about these horror stories. My move was not an horror. Just the opposite. They came early, checked off everything on the list, tagged & numbered every item, moved items quickly & efficiently, wrapped and protected the items. I expected the estimate to increase but the material use (tape, boxes, etc) were already factored into the price. How about that? That takes away the shocking surprise at the end when they tell you that each tape they used cost a fortune and a half after they just finished using one whole role on a small item and when you look around the floors you see unfinished rolls of tapes everywhere. With Shleppers this was not the case. Yes they used tape, boxes, etc but since it's part of the move it was factored into the price. Needless to say I was happy with my moving experience with Shleppers.
Everything was great, from the pre-move communication to the scheduling confirmation to the actual move. Your moving crew was professional, courteous, mindful of my possessions and I really couldn't be happier with the way everything went.
The Shleppers movers were great! Extremely professional and handled my items with great care.
I had to move out of my apartment within a short time window and Shleppers was able to get the job done well.
I am so thankful that I used Shleppers for my most recent move! The movers ran into issues with my building not letting them use the elevator and my furniture fitting in my new apartment but they were very patient and helpful. Amazing service!
Find another moving and storage company. I used Shleppers to move my things into storage and then stored then for a couple of years. The move into the storage went smoothly and the guys were great. However, on the move out (just putting the stuff in a U-haul) these others guys were just racing and were rough with my things. They swapped out their furniture blankets for the ones I had rented from U-haul and ended up damaging an expensive piece of furniture. They paid little attention to what they were doing as there is damage in several places to that piece of wooden furniture. Now all the edges are roughed up from them basically just flipping it over in the U-haul truck as they swapped blankets. They also paid no mind to boxes that had weakened in storage and put heavy boxes on top of ones that were already damaged (and marked Fragile). It was all about the speed and no concern over protecting my things.
I also had numerous issues with their accounting department. I even got an invoice after I had closed out my storage account. They can never get their computer system right. They also frequently billed me on my free months. My agreement was that every fourth month was free, but most of the time I had to track it myself and email them to correct their errors.
The contract they sent me by email to sign differed from what they gave me when I showed up with my stuff. They did not disclose in the email contract that you are charged for accessing your stuff. After my first visit where I added more things to storage they wanted to charge me $70. This was totally unexpected and involved months of going back and forth disputing the charge.
I do not trust their business practices and will never trust them with my belongings again.
I could not have been happier with Shleppers. I am a pretty picky customer overall so I was worried, as I always am before every move. But I was quickly reassured. The foreman was great and gave great direction to his movers. They sent 5 guys so they move went relatively quickly. The crew members were extremely efficient but also very helpful and willing to try a couple furniture set ups before we settled on the right one. All my stuff was carefully and professionally handled, arrived intact, and my place got set up very well. Highly recommend.
