Roy's Moving Service - Good mover in Johnson City TN


I did a post about Roy's Movers in Johnson City last year and need to do one again because they're still not as easy to find as they should be. 

 Several months ago, I commented on a post by Susan Haughton about an extraordinary delivery truck driver, "Are you Ordinary - or Extraordinary? and How do You Know".   Her well-written story made a good point, and it reminded me of another trucking company that deserves a plug.

My comment then was one of many:    Great story, and your application makes it even greater.   When we moved to a Tennessee house with a steep driveway and a barrier between lanes at the foot of the drive, the big national movers to which I described the situation all wanted a lot more money because they'd have to download everything to a smaller truck in the nearest parking lot.   The local company that everyone recommended said simply, "We'll just bring two smaller trucks.   No big deal."   This deserves a blog so I can give Roy's Movers a plug.  

 

 

When we moved several years ago from relatively flat Silver Spring, MD to a tudor on Lizabeth Drive with a steep driveway and a barrier between the lanes, other movers said they would have to off-load everything to smaller trucks in the nearest parking lot, with an increase in price and the additional wear and tear and possibility of damage to our possessions.

Then we found a local company that many recommended.   When I described our new driveway, Roy said, "No problem.   We'll just bring smaller trucks."   Based on the excellent recommendations I'd heard, we hired them.  They appeared on time in Maryland with two nice, clean trucks, walked through the house and immediately ordered the third one (I have a lot of books) and did what they had said they'd do - loaded efficiently, delivered promptly, unloaded without incident - and were very reasonable in price.  

I recommend Roy's Moving Service whole-heartedly.   No company is perfect, but I know lots and lots of people who agree that Roy's is a good organization.   Brokers always tell agents to give clients a list of companies in various categories and not to make specific recommendations, to avoid liability if they make a wrong choice or the company just that once isn't as great.   Therefore, I certainly think you should call others and compare.   If you know anyone in Johnson City, ask them how they feel about Roy's and I'll be surprised if they don't say what I'm saying.   Before we moved here, I asked a group of people if anyone had heard of Roy's and everyone in the group had used them at least once, all with satisfaction.   

At that time, a local college would pay incoming faculty's moving expenses no matter who they chose, but the faculty member had to at least talk to Roy's as part of that deal.   One who chose them in that circumstance was the first one who told me about them.

I've lost count of how many clients have used Roy's, and I'm just sending another one to them today.   Unfortunately, they don't have a web page or a good internet presence, and there's only a single line in the Yellow Pages.   People find them almost completely by reputation, apparently, but word does get around.    Don't be turned off by the fact that they don't have a computer.   He does things "the old fashioned way" and when I told them they needed an internet presence, the response was that he gets his business by reputation.    That apparently works.  

I want to help the word get around by this post.   For efficient, careful and economical moves, call Roy's Movers, Johnson City TN - 423-929-8374.  Tell them Mary Sheridan sent you.
