What Our Customers Say About Us
Dear Ed, We wanted to “close the loop” with you on our recent relocation from CA to Maui. After all the horror stories we heard and read about sleazy moving companies and scams and price gauging, and broken or lost items, etc, we are so pleased to report that our move went off beautifully. We had a terrific crew of movers at both ends – Excel Moving in CA and then Royal Hawaiian here in Maui. Everyone was friendly, efficient, helpful, pleasant, respectful of our “stuff” and all around fabulous. We are so glad we found you folks and that you have reliable vendors under your wing. Plus, your patience with us and our bzillion questions along the way helped tremendously. We really wanted …
I just wanted to let you know that I used Southern Winds International to move from NYC to Manchester, UK based on your site, and they were fantastic! Not only was the crew really nice, but so were the ‘office’ people in California, responding to email within the hour. My belongings were picked up, and delivered without a hitch and everything arrived in the condition they left the US. All in all, I really recommend them for all of your moving needs. They also have the most competitive prices of the market (I’ve looked!).
Dear David, “This is a very special :Thank You!”
When we got quotes for our move . . . Stevens was the highest. We got quotes from Rainier and Southern Winds. Southern Winds was the least expensive but also had the best customer service from the sales office by a long shot. Rainier’s local agent was very good, I have to say, and if we had gotten more responsive treatment from the sales office, I might have gone with them. I don’t think price alone is a reason to choose one company over the other, but for us the cheapest also offered the best customer service and we felt comfortable with the origin and destination agents. In the end Southern Winds did a great job for us.
Michele, My stuff was delivered this morning. Very polite, efficient young men. A pleasure to work with. This whole process has been stress free. – Thank you” 🙂
Hi Ed, Well, we finally closed on the house and iMove delivered our 295 packages on Friday. We have now unwrapped everything (and have a metric “boat”load of brown paper to recycle!) and unpacked many of the boxes, including as far as we can tell, all of the fragile items. Guess what? ZERO damage, ZERO loss. Absolutely incredible. We’re totally blown away. Everything was really meticulously and intelligently packed and clearly was handled carefully in transit (includes iMove’s warehousing for 5 months). I just wanted to send this to say a huge thank you, and I’ll send you a more formal letter of appreciation as soon as we get over the next week or so which will involve re-flooring the…
To Michael, “Thanks so much!”
We used Southern Winds International to move about 2000 lbs of goods from Seattle to Melbourne, Australia and everything went very smoothly and all of our goods arrived with no damage to anything. We highly recommend this company. Michael Gilbert was our Southern Winds International contact and was very responsive to all my questions both prior to and after the packing up of our goods. The local agent in Seattle (Tacoma) was Lincoln Moving and Storage and in Australia it was Transglobal Shipping and Storage. Both local agents also provided excellent service. In addition to Southern Winds, we obtained quotes from Rainier and Stevens. Rainier gave us a quote for shipment of 10,000 lbs of…
Dear Michael and all, Just want to circle back and let you know that all of our stuff was delivered yesterday to our house in France. Very timely! Thank you for all your help in making this complicated transition to Europe a little bit less stressful. The packing company you used was very professional and I have recommended you and your company to Sotheby’s International (they were the ones who sold our home) in case they have other people crossing the pond. Thanks again!!
I had a fantastic experience with Southern Winds for our move from Sacramento, CA to Canberra, Australia. We shipped a 20′ container and much of it was filled with my husband’s construction tools. Michael Gilbert at Southern Winds was GREAT, as was George Cooper, our contact at Aus Van Lines here. Our container was delivered yesterday and everything is fine! The communication we received from everyone was very good, and we had no problems with the customs/quarantine end of things. (We had to have 2 items steam cleaned, but all of this was clearly explained to us). Our price was good too. We are very happy we chose Southern Winds!!
