Absolutely positively the worst experience ever! Don't do it, please don't do it- to yourself! This workers are grossly inefficient and the president Rich Barrale is as spotty as they come.
This is one of those companies that exclusively uses hidden fees to scam, exploit, and drive up costs. I was charged 1.5 hours (145 per hr.) before the job even begun- this was for them to drive from their company base point (in Brooklyn) to my apartment ( in Harlem), just to start the job. Thus, i was charged was charged 245.00 (plus a 28.00 toll fee)- before the job even begun! (Needless to say this absurd policy wasn't explained or told to me until the job was complete!!). This was only the beginning-
The day began with me having to call the office because one of the workers refused to leave the truck in fear, the truck would receive a ticket if he was not in distance to move it if a cop came along. I quickly assured him that I would have my mother in law keep an eye on the truck so that he could join the other workers inside and begin work. (Again for the high 145 per hr price tag all three workers should contribute to the project).
Once inside the head guy began relentlessly tapping all of our goods and spent approximately 2 hours taping my desk, sofa, and two televisions before I stopped him and explained that he could just provide a basic tape job and move on to other tasks because at this point virtually nothing was complete and two hrs had passed. He got very aggravated by this and stormed out and spoke on his phone until I assured him I needed his effort in getting the job complete. THIS IS NOT A PROFESSIONAL COMPANY AT ALL.
I decided to take a step back and try to build moral by grabbing some drinks for the crew. When I returned back I noticed all the workers were huddled in the truck. I gave them the drinks and returned upstairs to see the tiny one sized apartment in the same condition I left it in! 3.5 hrs and still barely anything complete! I had to pull the plug on the job and cut my loses telling them to only bring the taped items and those already in the truck just drop off at the destination.
I now have to get new movers to finish the job!! AVOID this company it is pretty obvious this one of those high rated yelp scam companies- where- mother, brother, sister-n-law are used to write phony reviews. Although you can shuffle through a few of these to find others who have equal resentment in in hiring such a terrible company. Called fraud department when they hit my card with crazy fees, etc. I suggest you just steer clear or be prepared to FIGHT CHARGES IN COURT.
After living in the same building for more than 20 years, with flooding and other plumbing problems,and a huge book collection, preparing for a move to another apartment was a huge job. I packed for 3 days, but was still nowhere near ready when the people from All Star Moving and Storage Inc; showed up. They finished the packing in about 2 hours, and moved me efficiently into my new home.
This is the fifth time we`ve used All Star Moving and Storage Inc; and I can`t imagine ever using anyone else. They`re quick, professional and take great care while moving our possessions.
I couldn`t be happier with all the work you did for us, thank you All Star Moving and Storage Inc; for working so fast and professional.
All Star Moving and Storage Inc; have been very friendly, time efficient and helpful. They made the move and the experience incredible. I would highly recommend them and their service.
They were very knowledgeable about techniques to make the move more efficient and safe for our breakables! I would highly recommend their service to anyone that needed to relocate. They were fabulous!
Excellent I just used these guys to help me move furniture prior to my hardwood floors getting refinished. They were punctual, professional and highly competent.
They worked efficiently, quickly, and without hassles. They are friendly, cooperative, and a good team.
Great service! Decided to go with these guys after reading all the glowing city search reviews and they definitely lived up to my expectations.
Excellent responsive and helpful throughout the whole process! Thank you.
