FR Review:
Moving Man Inc. has 25 people on staff, but the name of the firm refers to a specific moving man: general manager Jon Stout. Stout started this firm in 1979, when he and a handful of employees worked out of his apartment. Today, the company boasts two large uptown storage warehouses, a small fleet of trucks, and two certified moving consultants. Still, clients say it has maintained a relaxed, down-to-earth attitude that alleviates stress. Moving Man Inc. earns further praise for strategic packing and planning, which clients say can make all the difference in a building with only one elevator.

An agent of the Wheaton Van Lines, Moving Man Inc. has the capability to do national and even international moves. Stout also maintains a subsidiary storage facility business with over 40,000 square feet of space. Thus, clients hiring the firm tap into a full-service network–which comes in handy for complicated, multistage moving projects. Base rates are a notch lower than competitors, with travel time and gas added on top. References say that estimates are usually accurate to within $100. They recommend Moving Man Inc. highly, saying that the company strives to develop personal relationships, and that its moves “always go off as planned.”

Representative Client Comments:
“I’ve moved with them many times, and I see the same guys over and over. Jon must treat his employees very well.” “A few things have been broken over the years, but they always offered to pay for a repair or a replacement.” “They worked well both with us and the building management.” “Actual cost came in only three percent above original bid. Everything arrived in excellent shape.” “Jon is amazingly relaxed. I’ve never seen him yell or lose his temper.” “The only time the estimate was significantly different than the final price, I ended up saving money.” “They’ve got both brains and brawn.”

Project Description & Comments:
Moved us from one two bedroom apartment to another two bedroom apartment on the upper west side twenty blocks away. Jon Stout was easy and quick to work with on the bid process. Actual cost came in only 3% above original bid. Packers, led by Fernando were quick, pleasant and professional. Everything arrived in excellent shape.
        Cost of Project: $1,001 - 10,000
