    During our long lives,We've moved households more than a dozen times, locally, nationally, overseas. Always on our own dime, no gravy train for poor old us! University Moving and Storage IS AMONG THE RARE BEST. UM&S are HEROS across all the steps of a move: 1.) SALES MEETING AND QUOTE: Extremely pro, no blah-blah, with relevant interest in what we feel. Shared practical knowledge but also insights into how the industry operates today. Understood our particular needs and apprehensions. Presented alternatives and cost/benefit probabilities. Quote was spot-on with actuals. None of the other 6 companies that my wife and I interviewed came close to even competing with the value that UM&S communicated. AND THEY DELIVERED! 2.) PACKING: Packers are skilled craftspeople. We had a team of two men, the more experienced packer carefully guided the newer to develop his skills and checked his work. All boxes were labeled clearly with their contents, manifest sticker and entered onto the manifest. 3.) LOADING: The dispatcher confirmed, throughout the process, all information about the truck driver and his team. Driver picked up on time with the capability to get the shipment out safely and quickly; the shipment paperwork complete and well organized. 4.) UNLOADING: Driver arrived on time, well aware of the particularities of the arrival site. NO SURPRISES or unexpected costs. The unloading team were full of pep, energy and team spirit, carefully placing everything as we directed. After we had time to unpack, all was in perfect condition. This relocation was a big move, from Athens, GA to Oakland, CA. I had many special requirements, many complexities. Of course, situations like these are always a test of spirit, no matter how many times they unfold. There were moments during the process when I felt unsure. Whenever I called Mike Roman, who was coordinating everything, he always took my concerns seriously. He made sure that I was confident of success. He and his national team made success happen. -Sarah and Phillip ELIE

    We hired this company for a small move and wouldn't hesitate to call on them again for any type of move. They were courteous, on time, efficient and careful. The cost was beneath what they had quoted! I have made many moves, local and long-distance, over the years, and this was one of the top two experiences we have had. And I'm a tough customer at least in terms of high expectations.

    HomeAdvisor verifies state-level licensing where applicable - note: some states require local or county level licensing and you should verify whether or not your pro is properly licensed.

    Seal of Approval

    What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

    1. Verify Trade License
      HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
    2. Verify Insurance
      As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
    3. Verification of State Business Filings
      For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
    4. Criminal Records Search
      HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
    5. Sex Offender Search
      We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
    6. Bankruptcy Search
      We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
    7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
      We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
    8. Liens Search
      We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
    9. Identity Verification (SSN)
      HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
    10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
      We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
