I was very pleased with O'Sullivan Moving and Storage, I hired for my late-November 2014 move. Larry and Mike led the quoting process efficiently and effectively, truly helping me facilitate my process of moving – with their office staff providing clear, useful, timely information and assistance when needed. Ryan and Eric were punctual and easy to work with on moving day: courteous, professional, and hardworking. They took care of all my requests, clearly assessed my options with a definite priority for customer service, as I navigated the various judgment calls that arose as we went along. I wouldn't hesitate to call O'Sullivan Moving & Storage to help with my next move, or provide storage services (provided the move is in Michigan – and frankly I'd be interested in their recommendation even if it was an out-of-state, cross-country or different type of move that's not their specialty). I don't recall any of my previous moves actually taking a good bit less time, energy and resources than expected, or coming in with a lower total bill than expected, as this one did! Moving usually represents some sort of transition, a milestone to cross, and there is value in making the transition and crossing the milestone as clearly and well as possible. You and your possessions are in good hands, with O'Sullivan Moving.They know the moving business, and they do it well – transforming an experience that can be a stressful experience into more of a pleasure.
I did my homework up front using the Better Business Bureau A+ ratings as filter. I found
three (3) local companies that I had bid my job. Each did a great job of explaining their
quotes. This was essential to understand how companies charge and what to expect on the days of the pack and move. Some companies would not deal with packing attic contents and others were more than open. In the end I selected using O'Sullivan Moving and Storage. Mike (the owner) and Larry (the onsite estimator) were highly accessible and responsive to answer any questions I had about the quote and the move process.
All estimates were for the same scope (except for the attic detail I noted above). I had a
2300+ square foot home to be packed and moved within the same subdivision. O'Sullivan worked to create the most economical move by quoting two (2) trucks instead of a single unit. They also were the most creative in handling some bulk material moving (firewood). Here are the
items I pulled out for the bidding process:
Packing Crew Size
Packing Man Hours
Packing Rate (calculated from above)
Moving Crew Size
Moving Man Hours
Moving Rate (calculated from above)
# Boxes, Box Charge
Drive Time (hours)
Drive Time Charge
All companies charged drive time to/from their warehouse and fuel costs, although at different rates. Insurance costs + coverages also varied.
My hat is off to the entire team at O'Sullivan Moving and Storage. I couldn't have made a
better decision than to go with O'Sullivan. My move at the end of May 2014 was as stress free an event that one could hope for. I want to issue a shout-out to all the packing and moving team members: Bill, Sandra, Jesse, Wardell, Kenny, Derrick, Dave M. and Denver. The two (2) teams that O'Sullivan provided were top-notch, very hard-working, trustworthy, considerate, efficient, personable and highly professional. They handled all the details without undue direction and even accommodated personal preferences without any question. You really know your stuff! Great job guys! I will recommend you and O'Sullivan in a heartbeat!
Paid them almost $1800 for less than 8 hours of work and 10 days of storage on a move two weeks ago. Got a quote for $85/hour for 5 additional pieces and was presented with a bill for $237. I had used them several times previous and referred them countless times. Now Mike O, says he is taking me to court because because I am only paying the $85 for less than 1 hour of work and less than 1 mile of drive between houses. I will NEVER refer them or use them again. I did not even go into the 2"x6" hole ripped in the couch they moved. Just too frustrated to deal with them anymore.
Hired o'sullivan last Wednesday for our move from 4 bedroom house w full basement to a two bedroom appt w nice storage space (a downsize for us).
They showed up w five guys all in uniform professional guys not temps w 2 trucks it was the morning after a wet heavy snow storm they showed up 8:55am helped shovel the walk got to work right away loaded up both trucks in 2 1/2 hrs went for a half hour lunch I met them at the new place they unloaded in 2 hrs and the move was done by 2pm.
They were polite curtious and careful with even less expensive furniture and the price was great !
Bottom line these guys were awsome
Made me realize just how badly I was taken for a ride when I used 2 men and a truck 4 years prior who had temps refused to come do an estimate and had to be nudged constantly and cost more then twice as much and were drinking on the job the last few hours all this for the same size load !!!
I just wanted you to know that your team of movers were OUTSTANDING and I am very happy with this service. I am recommending your moving company to all, even my job at WSU that utilizes companies to assist them with their moving needs. I was very impressed at the professionalism and speed that these gentleman worked with at such short notice. I am equally impresesd with the time frame these men got the job completed in. Please express my profound appreciation to these men. Thank you again. You have great workers and you should be very very proud of them!
The two gentlemen who showed up to move my parents were very professional and efficient. They had the entire move completed in about three hours. I already sent a message to their company complementing the company and these two in particular. If I ever have to move again, they will most certainly be getting a call from me. And I will be more than happy to offer them as a referral.
