Expediant Van Lines — terrible experience! don't hire them!
Originally I chose Expediant because they were nicer on the phone and gave me a lower initial estimate than other moving companies (although it increased quite a bit once I had no option of switching companies). I was promised that they would arrive at 9:00 AM on my move date, but come move date they didn't show up until 1:00 pm. They tried to charge me for blankets, even though I'd been told blankets would be included for free. They also wanted to charge me for stairs. Their policy is that one flight of stairs is free, but more than that costs extra. I lived on the second floor, one flight up. However, they have arbitrarily defined a "flight" as 8 steps, making them say that, although I live one floor up, that's multiple flights of stairs. They finally agreed not to charge me for stairs provided I agree to generously tip them.
Their policy is that, once you ask for your stuff to be delivered, it will come within two weeks. I requested my stuff at the end of August, expecting it by mid-September. However, it didn't show up until mid-October, and only after many phone calls on my part to track it down. Every time I spoke with them they didn't know where it was (Colorado? Los Angeles? New York?), and would say things like "I don't know where the driver is. I've been calling but can't get ahold of him. Maybe you should try." They kept telling me to stop calling , that they would call me, but they never would. Once I was assured that the driver was finally coming, he still took 3 extra days beyond when he was supposed to arrive, never calling me.
The final results: I got most of my stuff, but much of it is broken, some things were mysteriously taken out of their boxes, and one box (interestingly enough, the one containing my STEREO), is missing. My stuff was extremely well-packed (by me), so clearly these movers were throwing the stuff around, probably even trying to break it.
These guys were HORRIBLE to deal with, and you should NOT choose them to move your stuff.
