A colleague recommended West Coast Moving & Strorage after a seamless move from San Francisco to San Jose. Yep, I read the Yelp reviews first - many of them negative - but, as the former general manager of a large transportation company myself, I was well aware that if 99 percent of your clients were happy and 1 percent were not, it would be the latter that raised hell all over the discussion boards.

In any case, the estimate I received from West Coast undercut the other estimates I received by 30% and 32%, respectively. My biggest concern, however, was that my girlfriend had a lot of aniques. Much to my relief, the West Coast crew handled all of them with kid gloves, wrapping them in blankets and then shrink-warpping to secure the blankets. Moreover, they secured every layer of the moving van so that there was no shifting whatsoever ... I worked on a lot of moving vans in college and most of them just packed the truck and hoped the door would prevent shifting.

Our antiques arrived without a single scratch.

Even better, their work ethic was phenomenal. These guys were getting after it - I can honestly say there wasn't a single minute when I saw anyone standing around. I went to a local tacqueria to buy everybody lunch about 4 hours into the move and told the guys on the truck to relax and take a few minutes to eat. I went back inside and assumed they would be taking me up on my offer - but two hours later, when the move was complete, I found their burritos still unwrapped in a bag by the truck ... they had continued working through the break I had encouraged them to take.

Finally, they finished about 20 minutes earlier than the estimated time. All in all, a flawless move. It sort of makes me wonder how some of the other reviews listed here could have possibly been about this company, but, as I noted earlier, it's generally negative people that make the most noise. My colleague, the one who put West Coast Moving & Stoarage on my radar, had a similarly glowing review. That's why I called in the first place - and will long be grateful that I did.
