Virginia Mover Review by Ann M.
Amazing, Personalized, Experienced, Professional and Friendly Service. You will not be disappointed. This is a very belated but heartfelt thank you and endorsement for 495 Movers, who handled our long distance move from Northern VA to Southport, NC in late October and early November. Our initial solicitation for moving service estimates was sent out to several companies on pretty short notice. We heard from several companies that gave prices over the phone with added costs for boxes, wrapping, and assorted “what ifs” scenarios. Tom Yospe, sales manager for 495 Movers, contacted us the same day via phone to ascertain the volume and scope of our move, which initially involved our small house and two other large storage units in two different locations. Even after giving me an estimate, Tom again called to see if he might come by our house in Annandale to view first-hand what our move would entail. After visiting with us, talking with us and getting to know our personal circumstances and concerns, he discovered that we also had a well packed 10x10 garden shed storing heavy racks and cabinets of mechanics tools and garden/household supplies and equipment that we planned to move separately by making several trips back and forth from VA to NC by ourselves. Tom counseled and showed how we could save money, time, and wear and tear on our backs and joints if his team moved it all for us and gave us a flat rate to pack and move everything we planned to take. On move day, the 495 Team arrived early at the storage units and then came to the house to finish the move. They brought two large trucks to be sure they had the space to handle our move. The move team of David Benitez, Jorge, Salinas and Abelardo could not have been better. They worked in perfect unison, handling everything with the greatest of care and concern for our safety and the safety of our belongings. They finished up the packing by 3:00 p.m. on Sunday and got on the road by 4:00 a.m. the following morning to meet us in NC by 11:00 a.m. Again, they moved with great efficiency, strength, communication and care for our belongings. A second truck came with residual items within two weeks. Throughout the process we felt so well attended to by all the staff we worked and communicated with from 495 Movers. Moving is a very stressful process. Having never moved before we could not envision every detail to be considered or to be addressed; but virtually every worry we had became a non-issue because 495 handled everything. Tom Yospe assured me there would be a guardian angel at our home on move day and there was, it was the team of 495 Movers. We would highly recommend 495 Movers for any move, however large or small – they are wonderful.
