I am moving in Brooklyn and need a service that will pack my current apartment and unpack in my new apartment.
I'm moving in 3 weeks. I have a moving company that I love and trust and have reserved them for the move. However, I just had hand surgery and have a cast on my hand and wrist and need a service that will pack up my current apartment and unpack once the movers have moved my stuff to my new apartment. The movers I'm using do not offer this service.
I've been lukewarmly recommended Chelsea Mini Storage
, which looks dodgy to me, and Movers Not Shakers
, which has mixed reviews on Yelp (I do like that they are "green") and Taskrabbit, which seems like too big a gamble.
I'm hoping for a rave recommendation for a service that's fast, organized, meticulous and will unpack intelligently (in an organized fashion, thoughtfully thinking of what might go where, etc.). I have this fantasy of someone taking a photo of my shelves before packing and replacing everything in the same spot in the new apartment. This might be too much to hope for, but give me what you've got!
(I know it might be easier to use one service for packing, moving and unpacking, but I'd like to stick with my trusted movers if at all possible.)
