Thank you and the entire Ideal/Allied team! My move was super easy, fast, and seamless. The moving crew today were fantastic – so personable, kind, and really took care of everything with such attention to detail! I will recommend everyone I know in the Albany area to use you for any move. Thank you all for making this move so easy! I have my receipt but please let me know if there is anything else needed. Thank you all again! Be well!

Thank you,

We moved this week from snowy ALBANY, NY to sunny IRMO, SC for my husband’s job. We had to pack up our 3,000 sq ft home and make the journey south. We can not praise Mark and his Company enough. Reasonable, professional and made our move not stressful at all. Thank so much and we would recommend and use them again!

Hi Kelly! Just a quick note to thank you for arranging such a great move for me this past weekend! The crew was fantastic! They arrived early, got to work right away, and had me moved with seemingly no issues! They were professional, nice, and very efficient. I was so impressed!! I will give your company a “high recommend” to anyone I know who is moving. I’ll also be sure to tell the folks at my leasing office so they can pass your name along to new tenants as well. I’ve already told my realtor.
Thanks again!

(holy cow – an army of 6)
(this is a lot of stuff – but we got it covered)
(started loading at 9:00 – definitely Ceasar’s first shock centurion troops
– and at 2:30 they were sweeping the grounds and the castle seeking survivors)
and then they drove away with the goods leaving us with minimal but adequate comforts.
((All of a sudden, I think I like minimalist living: Fridge, TV, BED, Comfy chair, basic kitchen, fewer tools.))
Linda and I stood on front walk and waved good bye trying to figure out who were those masked men!
Very, Very cool. What a terrific group of guys – very, very funny, determined, efficient and careful. Polite too. When they wrapped me up in a moving blanket and stood me in a corner they said it was for my own good and it was OK with Linda.
Off to sunny Florida this afternoon,”

“Great movers. I would use them again in a heartbeat. Needed to move. Sales rep came over to the house, scoped it out, gave us a quote. We set up an appointment. The truck and movers showed up on time. Worked hard. Got the job done in the estimated time. Nothing of consequence was damaged. They were careful, efficient, professional and all around nice guys.”

I was trying to decide on whether I should use a moving company and an auto transport or just a moving company and I’d drive my car myself to Trenton, New Jersey (from Adironack, New York). I received a few moving estimates from different companies but settled on The Ideal Move because they would give me the best move possible. I felt they were affordable and would still provide me with good services, and they did. The movers were very nice the whole time. I will try to remember you guys for the next time I need to move.

I would just like to take the time to tell you how two of your workers in the Albany, NY area were great…Kenny and Jerome. They packed everything so neatly and safe so that nothing would be damaged and were very respectful of our property as well as the tenants that were moving. We had some uncooperative tenants upstairs that needed to be out very quick and they managed to keep a professional manner. I just really would like to commend them on their excellent service because it was a very difficult time with the tenants that were moving. Thanks again!

“Never moved before, so I went to BBB site and their name was listed, so I thought I would use them. Cannot say enough good things about them. Estimate was right on the button, movers showed up on time, were very professional and courteous. They were also very fast and careful with our furniture. Nothing was impossible for this crew. Unload went quick and smooth, just like they said it would. I definitely think we hit a home run with this company. I would certainly use them again.”

“We were overall quite pleased with The Ideal Move. They showed up on time and were very professional and courteous. We didn’t have a visual estimate done beforehand, so it was a nice surprise when the move took a lot less time that we were initially told. It was impressive watching them work, particularly the more experienced apparent leader of the group, who was not only speedy but very careful with our things. They were particular about using furniture pads and packing everything securely on the truck. The movers were also were very careful and skilled in maneuvering through narrow halls and doorways. We had a few items that weren’t wrapped or packed (such as lamps), and they explained their willingness to take them but were upfront about the policy they couldn’t be held responsible if the items were damaged. We took the risk and they arrived perfectly intact. We did find dings in two pieces of furniture that seemed to occur en route, but nothing significant or enough to affect functionality, and nothing that couldn’t be fixed with minor efforts. I would use their services again and felt it was well worth the cost to save the headache of moving ourselves.”

I was very impressed with the way The Ideal Move conducted their business. When we spoke on the phone, they didn’t try to sell me on some kind of special sale but laid out what they do, who they were, and how they got to where they are. I knew I could trust them handling my most personal possessions from Albany, New York to Hartford, Connecticut. I’ve heard about all these terrible movers and their moving services being almost illegal, but Ideal Move was the real deal. I will certainly recommend you to everyone I know.

“It’s so hard to find good movers and I really lucked out when I chose the Ideal Move in the spring of 2011. They sent two guys out on a rainy, cold morning – and even with the hour drive from Queensbury to Albany, they were done by the early afternoon. We bought the guys lunch and enjoyed talking with them. They were very efficient and helpful. It couldn’t have gone more smoothly. I thought their pricing was very fair and reasonable. If I ever have to move again, these are the guys I’m calling.”
