    Meyer’s Van Lines, Inc. (Mayflower) in the Bronx – AVOID this company, which has the phone number 718-665-6662 and the website It has DOT #853851 and MC #375815. A lot of bad stuff has been said about it. There are five reviews of Meyer’s on – four rate it very good and one rates it very bad. Unfortunately the ones rating it very good sound fake. I was told by industry people in NYC that Meyer’s used to be a good company before it was taken over by Israelis. The president is Ofer Drori.
    “bodensee9” posted that a worker at Meyer’s was very rude to him on the phone:
    Meyer’s gave “June” (moving to CA) a lowball Nonbinding estimate: (interstate)
    “Mike C” moving in NJ posted that he did not get a good feeling from Meyer’s estimator: (local)

    Good job…
    This information would be helpful for others. Your blog is providing knowledge a lot and now the people won’t waste their time in searching and they will get the best service at time.

  • This company (, not ) is a disaster area.

    I overpaid and had a horrible experience. The movers got into a fight with my porter and sent him to the ER. They then THREW AWAY(not lost) my cats ashes, my bookcase, my kitchen chairs and all of my medications, vacuum cleaner and a whole lot more. When I called their customer service they made excuses for the crews behavior and tried to blame me.

    They offered no apology and only offered to allow me to file a claim with the insurance I bought. This means I have to pay a 500 dollar deductible and have to pray that everything won’t be disallowed. This is despite the fact that their crew threw my stuff in a dumpster.

    They took no responsibility. I am so angry I set up a website to describe my experience and give an update as I go through my claims process. Avoid this company at all cost.

  • Nice article. This information provides people with knowledge about movers. it helps a lot. thanks.

  • Great article and interesting site! You’ve got some worthwhile ideas. Thanks!

  • I would like to refer as a professional moving company in Phoenix.

  • Congrats to flat rate for obtaining the best of city search award. Truly a great honor!

  • i would like to refer man and van in London as the best movers in London

  • This way, you can compare companies side by side without incurring any extra risk.

    In fact you may just adore the procedure of moving. As you’ll find when moving to Los Angeles, finding a bargain is akin to finding a goldmine.
