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.
In the midst of a busy weekend, Schleppers twice found the time and heart to donate trucks to help victims of hurricane Sandy. Their drivers were incredibly professional, and despite this being an entirely volunteer job, helped move tons of food to affected areas.
I got a great chance to see how the company operates, however. They were extremely communicative via cell phone as they were getting to the sites, arrived at both the pickup and destination exactly when they said they would, and were able to be flexible when we reached our destination to add two other sites.
You could just tell that everyone from the owner of Schleppers, who came to help assemble the food kits with his family to the dispatch and drivers were genuinely good people who really cared, and I think it's a safe assumption to make that they take this much care in every job they have.
I've had some pretty hairy moving experiences over the course of my 25 years in NY, but I would use Schleppers as a #1 choice based on this experience. I am not a big "reviewer" of things on citysearch but this experience was so outstanding that I think it's worth knowing about. I will definitely post about them for my next move too. Thanks guys.
The guys were great and they even helped us arrange the furniture!
From my first phone call to the completed move, everyone and every aspect of the move was perfect.
This is by far the worst experience I've ever had with any company ever. A complete nightmare.
The crew were prompt, a bit early, had a very reassuring and calm demeanor, took good care of my belongings, were courteous and took initiatives (in a good way).
Great experience. The movers were on time, they were professional and polite. They did everything fast. The best experience with movers I’ve ever had. They made me feel as if my stuff was theirs.
I was actually shocked about how fast and efficient the men who came to my apartment to move me were. They handled my furniture with care and were very friendly. I kept telling them why didn't I think of that when they were wrapping and moving my belongings. It made all of my stresses of moving disappear. I highly recommend Derek and the Shleppers team to anyone who needs to move.
