DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY, give you a low ball quote and then slow walk the move. I called and spoke to Teddy and gave him an item by item move and was very descriptive. When the movers showed up they immediately apologized and said that they where supposed to have 3-4 guys. But for not to worry …

I was really nervous moving from Houston to Illinois, but Brandon was super helpful, calling after every step to make sure everything went well. On moving day the movers were very friendly even after moving me out of my 3rd floor apartment in the summer. I would recommend them to anyone I know.
When frigid winter days have you longing for spring showers and their magical flowers, there is no need to suffer in silence.
If your sprinklers are geysering or are leaking, there are a few steps to take to mitigate these problems.
Staying organized on moving day is key, and planning is a big part of it. Keep this checklist handy before and during your move to keep things stress-free.
I just wanted to write to say thank you for the excellent service we received:They arrive on time and do everything in a very professional manner.They are very careful not to damage anything as well. Their service is very reasonably priced as well.they worked fast and without any problems.They stayed extra to help me arrange my furniture in my new placeI have nothing but good things to say about American Knights. We moved from the Galleria area out to the burbs and hired this company to handle it because, well, it's hot in Houston and I really didn't feel like moving everything myself. They arrived at 9:30am and after a quick chat with me to determine everything that needed to be done, they got to work. There were three guys and a pretty big moving truck. The guys spoke pretty good English and were professional in how they cared for my stuff. They had to take a queen bed and a king bed downstairs. We have couches, a dining room, dressers, the whole package but they moved quickly and efficiently. I felt a little lazy watching them work so hard, but I definitely got what I paid for. They knocked out the whole move in around 3 hours... YES, 3 hours! It was great! This was the least stressful move I have ever done. I don't have a whole lot of experience using movers, but I feel like I got a great deal. I would recommend these guys to anyone.We picked a Saturday morning to move, and they gave us a two hour window for when they would be there (pretty standard I think). They arrived at 9:30am and after a quick chat with me to determine everything that needed to be done, they got to work. There were three guys and a pretty big moving truck. The guys spoke pretty good English and were professional in how they cared for my stuff. They had to take a queen bed and a king bed downstairs. We have couches, a dining room, dressers, the whole package but they moved quickly and efficiently. I felt a little lazy watching them work so hard, but I definitely got what I paid for. They knocked out the whole move in around 3 hours... YES, 3 hours! It was great! This was the least stressful move I have ever done. I don't have a whole lot of experience using movers, but I feel like I got a great deal.the guys were really helpful and explain all of the information that I needed to know, and most important took care of all the stuff with care. I would recommend these guys to anyone.I was glad to find someone to get my new furniture for such a reasonable price. They moved my things carefully, swiftly, and intelligently. We could not have been happier with the servicemoving crew was courteous and their timing impeccable: the guys were working full steam ahead, quietly and did so for the rest of the day with no complaints. The crew was very nice and helpful,, and they really all know what they are doing. They wrapped everything, moved it all with no complaints and charged what I was quoted
US Van Line is fantastic. We had a wonderful experience with them. No wonder they get 5 stars from every reviewer here . We would give them 10 stars if we could. I am very particular of what companies I hire when it comes to my personal belonging and life at that. I hear many stories and can relate to bad experiences I've come across in the past. In order to secure my decision I choose requested individual quotes from all 3 well rated companies i had selected. After reviewing and comparing estimates, US Van Line stood out and impressed me the most, their structure was well formatted and the way they presented me with recent references I could refer to created that comfort I needed. You should never be too comfortable without looking into company. I have many valuable and delicate things I had them handle and they were able to honor their agreement and ensure everything would be delivered the way it came. To sum up my wonderful experience I want to say with no doubt I would recommend and continue using this company. They are worth every dollar and can assure to do the best job whether it be a little close move to a large long distance move. They have the knowledge, experience, and crew it takes to take it on. I gave them five stars but I would without hesitation double that rating to ten stars if I had the ability to, they did everything right from the very moment they walked in.My biggest concern throughout the entire move was precisely how we would be able to get all of our belongings from one place to another without damage. And without a sign of distrust they were able to provide me reassurance that our stuff was in good hands and these movers truly knew what they were doing. Everything arrived in perfect condition. Thank you guys so very much for all the help you guys have provided to us and the assistance you gave to make our family's stress about a new city and a new place just a little easier!
GREAT SERVICE I usually don't write reviews for moving companies because they are usually the same , unfriendly, unprofessional. I move every year and each time the move ends, we get charged some unknown charge. US Van Line is different. I am writing this review for Mike’s team and Nicole my coordinator. Exemplary. From the get-go, the coordinator called and followed up with me making sure I understood what to expect and working with me to ensure my moving experience was stress-free. She helped me make an informed decisions, meaning, I was given several options so I can decide what was best for me. She always called me back promptly whenever I needed to talk to her. She was exceptionally detailed and was HONEST. They WON'T MISLEAD YOU WITH ANY HIDDEN COSTS. And they tell you what you "may be' charged so you know what you are getting yourself into. Thanks for your honesty Nicole !!!!!Mike’s team was superb. They were exceptionally polite, and PROFESSIONAL. They called me before they arrived, walked through my order, helped me understand what to expect, then proceeded to wrap my paintings and lamps with such speed and care, it was fascinating to watch such skills. After the move was completed and we walked through the pick-up list, Mike asked me if I needed anything else and walked through the paperwork. His office called me to double check on my experience with the team too! Mike's team left my home clean, and with a handshake. Usually I am panicking up after the movers and running after them to tell them to be careful, but not this time. Thanks Mike for all your advice and assistance in this really great experience. You and your team have reduced my stress in this move tremendously. I will call you in a year!
My move was troubled from the beginning as result of divorce. Yuck. I called Darlene and discussed at length my concerns regarding privacy of my new address and possible hostile situation. She consoled and reassured me that they would keep my new address in confidence and their staff would take care of anything that came up. The day of the move the tension was so thick you could cut it with a knife. My soon to be ex wouldn't allow anyone in the house, not even the movers. About 30 minutes into the move, my ex began throwing my packed belongings down the sidewalk and driveway. The movers went into action literally running from the porch to the truck getting things loaded as quickly as possible. Unfortunately there were a total of three physical altercations with my ex all in attempt to remove my items from the house. Both gentlemen were very respectful of the situation, passed no judgement and didn't get involved. They remained respectful, even to my screaming irate ex, while removing the last of my things from the house. Gregory went above and beyond the job requirements entrusted to him by his employer. I will be forever grateful for people like him and companies like All-Some Movers. The following day I called Darlene to let her know what happened. She was loving and kind expressing her concern and passing along the relayed concern from Greg after he briefed her on the previous days events. This company will take care of my moving needs for the rest of my life. I couldn't have made it through this move without them. Hands down, they are the best moving company I've ever employed.
My family used king david movers for our move to Ft Lauderdale. The sales rep (John) asked me to give them a review and grade so here it is. First he answered all my questions when we did the phone inventory. The other companies I was talking to didnt ask about stairs or other potential upcharges. I like that they gave us an estimate based on cubic feet instead of weight (nobody came to our house with a scale to weigh our furniture so how would they have a clue as to the weight of our load??) I wasnt excited about paying a deposit, but it was a lot less than most of the companies were asking and John said it was refundable for any reason (and he put that on the contract). The day of the move was ok, but a little stressful. The driver called to say they were running late but they got there about an hour later. The 3 guys that came out were what I expected from any moving company...gruffy but polite and they got the job done in a decent amount of time. The move itself took a little longer than expected (about 15 days) but at least john did his best to keep us updated as well as their customer service people. The delivery crew was different that the ones that picked us up but they were ok as well. They put our stuff in the rooms that they were supposed to and even put our beds back together. There were a few things that got scratched or scuffed but nothing major. Overall it was not a bad experience
What a great crew. Three men came to pack us up in Galveston Texas. The crew were hard working and conscientious. They were careful to show me everything they found dinged, broken, or bent on every piece of furniture before wrapping. They wrapped the HECK out of every piece, nice or not. They made a crate for our two large screen televisions on site. They wrapped stacks of boxes to keep them secure. They brought lots and lots of packing material (included in the cost) and used it all. We had NOT ONE BIT of furniture damage. They had the truck loaded completely in 4 hours, ready to drive to the scales.Lisa , at the office, was always in constant contact, checking in with me on how things were going, eta, etc. Easy to reach and helpful. Cost was a bit high, but that was due to the fact we have more stuff than we thought! (Including a piano, and an addition sectional sofa that we just purchased which they moved so very well.)The delivery was exceptional -This time, only two guys were there—Mark again-- and they were amazing. Moved everything in, assembled all furniture, stacked all the boxes exactly where I asked, and were so careful. They wrapped all of the wooden railings and newels and other woodwork in the house for protection. They packed and cleaned out all of their trash.Hardest working guys I've ever met. HIRE this company.
thoroughly impressed with the service provided by American Knights Moving,used them for my recent move and will use them in the future! I recommend their services to ANYONE!!!!I personally thank Tanya for following up every single thing,assuring me, Kobi for his visual inspection and the movers Juan Flores,Jesus Arrieta and Roger were So very friendly! And Misti for regular updates about the dispatch And above all Jennifer, She did send me a restaurant card worth $ 50 ! Believe me they did buy me my dinner amidst my stressful move!On time with easy booking and smiley movers, they were extremely responsive and more than fair in working with usI had spoke with various movers to finalize the quote and had one company (TRANSIT MOVING SYSTEMS) which lied to me about the load I had and another(All Over the state Moving & Storage) who threatened that all the other company are worst and they will be never deliver on time , I'm glad that I didn't go with them!Thank you Tanya and Kobi!
This company is great! The moving team was awesome! Young, hardworking, professional and efficient! From the very beginning, I was not sure which company to hire. I wondered what the best choice for me would be since there were so many companies, but somehow going through all comments and reviews I decided to hire King David Movers and when I phoned the company, a very professional salesman answered all my questions. I was even too curious about every single thing regarding service and conditions, but he was more than patient with me! The movers came a bit earlier and helped me pack the rest of my things. They were really energetic, enthusiastic and fast. I have never seen such a positive attitude towards work and a customer! They did a perfect job and I did not paid much at all! Actually, I paid much less than I expected and it made me extremely happy. I was thrilled with their service. Thank you so much King David Movers for the great job you did!
I have read some reviews where people complained about moving companies using too much packing materials adding extra money to the final bill. Some people even said that although most movers are efficient, their packing skills are not up to the mark. So, when I was moving, I decided to take some matters into my own hands. I packed most of my stuffs and labeled them before the movers from Houston first movers arrived. They arrived right on time and some of my stuffs were still unpacked. They helped me pack those up and frankly, I didn’t think they were as bad as the reviews claim them to be. In fact, they were way faster than me and more creative too. There isn’t much to do after being done with the packing. So they finished loading in just 1.5 hours. I had to pay them for the two hours minimum, which made me regret my theory of “pack yourself” a little. Anyways, we have safely moved to my new Apt and all my belongings traveled safely too.
I have a hard time trusting people, especially with things that matter to me. So when I had to move, I was dreading the idea of having to hire a moving company. I have heard terrible things about them from my friends. But it was impossible for me and my family to make the move on our own. I asked around and many people suggested that I hire Global Movers. When I talked to them, I felt a little at ease. The man on the phone, Ted, was very friendly and assured me that they would take good care of my things. He did sound quite sincere and so I hired them on a very reasonable quote. Their men turned out to be just amazing. They worked tirelessly in my old house packing everything very carefully. They carried everything out with great caution. My trust started building when I saw them at work. They seemed very sincere and honest. When everything arrived at my new house, they were all there and nothing was damaged. I really couldn’t be happier.
Nature's beauty can be seen everywhere through landscape designs. Not everyone has a green thumb or the knowledge to coordinate a landscaping plan that's aesthetically pleasing and meets the unique needs of the property. Landscape contractors can help add curb appeal to the exterior of your home or strategize how plants should be laid out.
Generally, landscape contractors create or refurbish outdoor spaces by planting trees, lawns, shrubs and flowers, and constructing paths, decks and patios. These professionals will generally discuss client requirements, how the landscaped area will be used, and the client's preference for certain styles. After this initial meeting, landscapers will select the materials they need and start carrying out their construction and planting plans.
With the number and variety of properties that need landscaping services, it should come as no surprise that there are many different providers to choose from. In fact, there are nearly 500,000 active landscaping businesses in the U.S. This demand is driven by the continued growth in domestic housing markets. Steady disposable income has also been a major reason for households to outsource their yard care.
Landscaping contractors have a wide variety of techniques that they can use to spruce up your yard. Here are some of the most common landscaping attributes that you can find at most homes:
Homeowners and businesses may stray from annuals and biennials due to planning and costs associated with them - instead, look to fill your garden with perennials. These plants return every year, making them a budget-friendly option. You may choose to do a one-color floral garden or a combination of colorful perennials. Look at plants like allium, buddleia, coneflower, sage and veronica for inspiration when choosing perennials.
Homeowners can mix and match different kinds of trees to enhance their yard. Evergreens like spruce, magnolia, holly and firs keep their leaves year-round. Deciduous trees, on the other hand, have leaves that change color and fall off in colder months. Pair different types of trees together for ample yard coverage.
If you want to guide guests around your yard, try using pathways. You can dig shallow holes to make the stones flush with the ground, providing an appealing walkway. Pavers can also be arranged in geometric patterns to cover unused ground space or bare earth.
Landscape contractors can also build a structure that will enhance your yard. Perhaps you decide to put in a koi pond, or that you want to build out your patio. Landscape contractors have the knowledge, tools and design expertise to carry out these construction projects.
Homeowners and business managers should call landscaping contractors as these professionals have the tools and expertise to carry out jobs such as:
Planting Trees and Flowers
Landscapers are often called out to roll out sod as well as plant trees and flowers. These contractors have the design aesthetic to help you plan the best layout for your particular space. Landscapers can also tell you if certain plants aren't cut out for your climate. Not only will you get a beautiful yard, but you'll also have foliage that will last over the years.
Sprinkler systems are beneficial for a variety of locations, but many DIY irrigation projects can lead to incorrect installations. Some problems include poor-quality components, improper pipe sizing, too many sprinkler-heads per zone, and inadequate head spacing. These systems are difficult to install, and a DIYer can easily make mistakes. Landscape contractors can situate sprinklers methodically to maintain your plants and ensure that the irrigation system is set up correctly.
Building Retaining Walls
If you have a retaining wall or are putting one in, proper installation is crucial. Landscapers see issues like lack of proper base preparation, unattractive wall blocks, mitered cuts at corners and no drainage chimney installed behind the wall. To prevent your wall from crumbling, call a landscape contractor to construct one.
Besides putting in plants and trees, building decks and patios are the most common jobs for a landscape contractor. These professionals have the best materials and tools available to create the look that you desire. DIY projects can end with structurally unsound builds, requiring additional time and money to fix the issues. Good landscapers will ensure a solid result that melds with the rest of your landscape design.
Homeowners and contractors can draw a lot of inspiration from landscaping styles used all over the world. There are some limitations to your options, such as what plants you can use based on the climate you live in, how much space you have to work with and any homeowners-association compliance regulations. However, once you address these main areas, landscaping design is only as restricted as your imagination.
Many homeowners are starting to use the Mediterranean design style for their landscapes. This option is becoming popular around the world because it takes advantage of new varieties of palm trees and plants that conform to different climates. The diversity of this flora is what makes this approach so appealing.
Southwest Landscape Design
If you live in an arid region, this style is likely going to be the best choice for your landscaping. Using a mix of garden decor and plants, Southwest design aims to make the most of plants that retain water well and can handle dry, warm climates. Pathways, patios and lawn ornaments can help cover the space and complement available flora.
Japanese Garden Style
Japanese-style landscapes are known for providing a serene space. This design uses a number of techniques to make the area look bigger than it is and to create a calm, beautiful atmosphere.
No matter which style you choose, there are some main considerations that should go into your design. Homeowners need to anticipate equipment access needed to create a deck or patio, as some tools may be too big for the space. They will also want to start by choosing a focal point. It should stand out but still be connected to the rest of the landscape. Accenting your home with thoughtful plantings to highlight its features will add curb appeal and enhance its characteristics.
Landscape work is not cheap, so it's in your best interest to make sure that it's done to your requirements and that you get the best contractor to do the job. Consider these factors before hiring a contractor:
Every good contractor should have a list of recently completed jobs that you can see in their portfolio. They should also have a list of references that you can contact, or properties that you can see in person. Feedback from these sources can reveal necessary information about the quality of the contractor's work, dependability, responsiveness and capacity to carry out your particular project.
Certification and Memberships
Landscape contractors also should have relevant certifications from reputable programs, like Certified Landscape Technician. You should also ask for a list of professional activities, affiliations and awards to gauge interest in professional growth and commitment to excellence. Contractors may be part of the International Society of Arboriculture, The Irrigation Association and numerous other organizations that are committed to providing better training and education in the industry.
Homeowners should require that the contractor submit certificates verifying compliance with safety, insurance, workers' compensation and drug and alcohol testing programs. This will give you peace of mind that the contractor has gone through all the steps under industry regulations.
Pricing and Billing
Homeowners should know how much they'll need to pay for the contractor's service as well as how they will be billed for this work. Ask about any design fees, if quoted prices are fixed or estimates, and what the payment process will be. Clarifying these items in the beginning will prevent any surprise expenses.
States have different requirements regarding landscape-contractor operations. Check the specific regulations for your area, and verify that your contractor has the necessary licenses. These may include a state contractor's license, pesticide license, CDL driver's license and license to sell and purchase nursery stock. It's important to ensure that your landscape contractor complies with established rules before beginning your project.
When it comes to working with landscaping materials, safety must be the top priority. There is a wide range of services within the industry, many of which come with a risk of injury. Employers must conduct all required training in a language and vocabulary that workers can understand. Training must demonstrate the hazards of operating certain machinery, like stone cutters and splitters, as well as how to use them appropriately. It's important to verify that your landscape contractor has taken the necessary steps to fully train its personnel and that the appropriate safety precautions are in place.
