I had a great experience with Bellhop. This is my second time using them and they did a fantastic job. They arrived on time and completed the move in a timely manner. They were very polite and I felt like my belongings were well taken care of. I had a glass table and a large TV that they wrapped up and took extra precautions and not one piece of furniture was affected during the move. I would definitely recommend Bellhop moving company to anyone and will use them again.
