I was in a bit of a bind as I was moving long distance from New Orleans to Dallas. I had already set up my move with a company located in Florida that was going to come and pick up my things and deliver it in Dallas. The company called the day before pick up and said they would be delayed 4-5 days as the truck sent to me had 2 flat tires. I had to move out of my apartment the next day so I needed a moving company FAST!!! I called New Orleans Moving Co and they agreed to pick up my things the very next day and drive it to Dallas for me. The owner of the company was even patient with me as I tried to make a decision of what I would do since this was an unforseen circumstance. He even gave me a good price as I had a studio size apartment to move with no beds. The owner and 3 movers showed up the very next morning EARLY and loaded the truck in less than an hour (I believe the fact that there were 3 movers, a small amount to move, and elevators contributed to the short load time). They were careful with everything!!! Shrink wrapped my sofas, blanket wrapped the pillows to the sofa. Everything went great. The left my apartment at 9AM and my things were unloaded in Dallas (with only one mover to unload) at 630PM the same day. GREAT TIME!!! I recommend this company to anyone. They saved my life and the owner was really nice.

2 Hours Late. More time than Estimated. We called "Precision Movers" but got this truck & invoice instead. Movers do not wear uniforms. Movers dud not introduce themselves by name. We required no packing & only one table was dismantled for the move. When given a three hour estimate on the phone, I was already skeptical. We had already told them we required a 1 hour drive to our new apartment & we were moving to the third floor. The move took 4.5 hours. Which, honestly, was what I expected. No problem, there. Our main issue is that the movers arrived 2 hours later than expected. We were called 45 minutes before their arrival to notify us they were coming. Service was good. They worked consistently & took minimal breaks. They were smart about doorways & heavy lifting. $30 charge for stairs was not discussed on phone prior to arrival. If they had mentioned the stair charge & called -prior- to the time of estimated arrival to let us know they were going to be late, I'd give 4 stars. If they'd mentioned the stair charge & been on time, I'd give 5 stars.
I was nervous about the moving process at first, especially since my move was long distance to North Carolina. I did a lot of research and chose Lee Moving because of their rating with the BBB and length of time in business. The crew leader was Tony. He said he had been in the moving business over 30 years and I believe him after seeing the way he wrapped and packed my furniture into the truck...it was like a puzzle that he carefully put together. I don't remember the other 2 employees' names, but they were equally as professional. I didn't realize how much I had until I watched it all get packed up into boxes. They used white paper to protect and cushion my things as they were each placed in the size appropriate box. Everything arrived in the same condition it left and within my delivery dates. I don't write many reviews, but Tony asked me for my honest opinion, and quite frankly, he deserves a lot more than that.
