    Dec 14, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Driver was great!
    Cons: Packers were horrible!

    Summary: Having moved many times in my life, I have had good experiences and bad ones. It really isn’t the company that determines the quality of the move, but instead the individual people that you deal with. Bekins just moved us from Whitefish, Montana, and ... read more

    Cons: The stress of others not caring for your things like you do.

    Summary: We moved 10 months ago. We were not given an option on insurance for the move. We were told that everything we packed would only be covered at $.60 per pound but everything they packed would be covered 100% of it's value. Moving day came, we packed ... read more

    Pros: Every single thing was itemized with a specific number and had a written explanation.
    Cons: We had several broken and missing items. Our damage claim was almost completely denied.

    Summary: I would NOT recommend using Bekins Transfer and Storage located at 108 Brooke Rd, Pottstown, PA, for any of your moving or storage needs.  They did about $400.00 worth of damage to the house we were selling, as well as damages to our personal items ... read more
