Any suggestions for movers in the I-270 area (Rockville to Frederick, MD)?

I did my Yahoo and Google searches before posting, but I didn't get a 'Best' mover to work with. I have 2BRs, a dining room, living room and famiy room (with a reaaly nice plasma set) to move. Any 'best' suggestions. I generally know what to avoid, thanks...

Not sure if this guy handles moves to Frederick, but he was great when I lived in Maryland:

I had a good experience with Two Guys and a Truck for an intra-DC move.

We used Two Guys and a Truck for an Arlington to Germantown move. They were 95% good, and handled the multiple flights of stairs better than I did.

The only issue was that we had an Ikea bed that we couldn't disassemble. They managed to get it out of the first place and into the truck, but then seemed to think that the use of force was necessary to get it into our new bedroom. I had to order them to stop and leave it alone, then work out the physics myself of how to get it through an awkward doorway. It ended up fairly badly scratched and creaked from then on. But, cheap Ikea beds don't have a long shelf life anyway.

So just make sure that there are some brains as well as brawn handling the move.

Gulliver's Movers in Alexandria has moved me twice and half my friends at least once. They always come in under their estimates and they do a first rate job.

Best answer: We had a good experience with Beltway Movers. They moved us from Baltimore to Silver Spring a couple of years ago, and will be moving us to Alexandria this week (holy crap I have to get back to packing!). They are a very professional organization, and probably cost a bit more than others. They only do DC area moves, and have competent crews.

They were recommended to us before our previous move, and did a good job. One cheap floor lamp was damaged during the move. They noticed it, not us. Rather than having us deal with paperwork and claims and the like, the crew knocked an hour off the cost.

If you ask me in a week, I can give you a more updated review. Now where did I put the tape gun?

Best answer: Seconding Beltway Movers. Moved us from Rockville to Silver Spring in 2005. I had no complaints.
