We moved from Utah to Ohio. We hired UPack to ship our things, we had everything boxed up and ready to go on moving day. My husband is the expert truck packer of the family, but he'd already gone to Ohio a few weeks before to start his new job so we hired a professional moving company to come do it for us.
When I scheduled with Beehive movers I was told they would bring the plastic wrap to wrap all of our furniture and then they'd need me to get moving blankets to wrap around pieces to help minimize damage. So I got the moving blankets for moving day and when the packers arrived I let them go pack the truck. Before they started I informed them that we would be paying per foot used on the truck, so please pack it as tightly as possible. And then I left them to it. Because they are professional movers and I am not, so I assumed I would know less about packing a truck than they did.
I should have gotten a clue about a half hour in when the movers started whining like preteens about how much stuff we had and how hard of a move it was. (We were moving from a two bed, 1 bath apartment and we are not hoarders, so... we really don't have THAT much stuff...)
By the end they were whining so much I just wanted them out of the house as fast as possible. One of the guys took a smoking break about every 10 minutes, smoking right by all my stuff he was packing and throwing his cigarette butts all over my driveway. (and yes, my stuff did smell like cigarette smoke when I unpacked it)
They came in to inform me they were done and I did a quick check to see if they'd gotten everything out of the house. They'd forgotten several things, including the washer and dryer. They were so annoyed that they couldn't be done. They hauled the washer/dryer out of the house before draining it all the way, splashing water all over the house, and then set it on the truck. I went to look at the truck to see how everything went and almost cried. Things were just thrown in there, nothing was wrapped like I was told it would be, none of the packing blankets were used, the washer wasn't strapped in AT ALL- just set on the back of the truck, my nice wood furniture was just thrown in and nothing was packed tight. They'd put all the boxes in first and then put the furniture in (real movers put the boxes around the furniture to save space and make sure everything is tight and won't shift during the move) They'd used the ENTIRE 28 foot truck. (our packing estimate was that we'd use 13 feet) Since we paid about $130/extra foot, that lazy packing cost us almost $2,000 extra.
I had the guys leave because they were lazy, annoying and horrible packers and then called Beehive Movers and asked if they'd sent someone else to fix it. The guy kept trying to throw the issue back on me, saying, “Well, I really wish you'd have said something while they were packing” Yeah, me too! Unfortunately, I didn't realize I'd hired people who I'd have to babysit throughout the whole process.
He did eventually send some guys out (after much insisting on my part). They came, looked at the job and laughed at how horrible it was. He said he could have packed the stuff in half the space. However, they wouldn't pull everything out and repack to actually save that space, all they would do was take out a few things in the back and refit them in so they wouldn't shift as much during the cross country drive.
When we got to Ohio, our professional movers on this end literally didn't believe we'd hired professionals in Utah. They kept calling us out to show us how bad it was because they were afraid they'd be held responsible for damage. The packing job was even worse the farther back we got. They'd even packed their empty Gatorade bottles into the our stuff...
In the end, we paid Beehive movers over $400 to do a job that was done so poorly we spent almost $2,000 to make up for their lack of packing skills. Almost every piece of furniture they packed ended up with a large scratch on it, and our washer/dryer is so bent up we're not sure it will even work. They were rude, whiny and made a mess of my house (splashing water all over as they carried out the washer, leaving empty water bottles and wrappers in any room they'd been in) as they packed up my truck.
It was a very expensive and stressful mistake and I would never recommend their company to anyone.
