The entire team at Ship Smart are consummate professionals who really understand the moving business and provide stellar customer service. We had an international move from Vancouver to Los Angeles, which can be daunting and stressful. We decided to work with Ship Smart because they were the most professional explaining the process, were able to provide expert advice on the logistics, and had competitive pricing. We were not disappointed. They were very clear about the paperwork we needed to fill out, handheld us through the process, were on top of scheduling and showed up on time both for pickup and delivery. Best of all, the entire staff—from the back office folks to the guys on the trucks—were extraordinarily organized, polite and knowledgable. Our belongings arrived on time and in perfect shape. We recommend Ship Smart wholeheartedly!

What about using one of those pod systems?

A pod is basically like a "do it yourself" move except it's a lot more expensive. You manually pack your belongings into the pod, you are responsible for boxes and materials, and you are responsible if the items are damaged during transit. A lot of customers do not understand how much items can shift in their pod during transit or how the pod is treated after it leaves their residence. With Ship Smart, everything is handled for you and at a lower price PLUS, we'll insure your belongings from damage.

Small shipment, regular van lines gave me two to four week window plus standard fees plus packing fees. ShipSmart picked up my self-packed clothes and household goods, and they packed my two bicycles in separate custom cartons. Actual weight was close to their estimate based on my input, and fee was reasonable and much cheaper and safer than my renting a U-Haul and dealing with a trailer. From NoCal to SoCal took a week, got a call for next day delivery between 10-2 PM; driver called at 11:30 am, said he'd be there in an hour. I went outside after 50 minutes and he was turning the corner. Delivered right to my back door as promised. All goods shrink-wrapped on two pallets. I unloaded everything off the pallets and he took them away. Easy and on time and nothing broken or missing. Can't get any better than that. I intend to use them for my return trip.

What about using other small movers?

Great brands have imitators, and Ship Smart is no exception. Most companies that advertise small moves are simply consolidating as many small shipments into traditional blanket wrap moving vans. With nothing to separate the shipments but blankets, this can increase chances of loss and damage, and generally means very long transit times. Ship Smart custom packs or crates your items to protect them during shipping. This greatly reduces the chance of loss or damage, which is why our company has one of the lowest damage and loss ratio in the industry. So don't be fooled by small blanket wrap consolidators, and give the nation's largest small move company a call today.

I was recently out on the East Coast and had to make a quick decision on some family heirlooms. Our mover in Salt Lake City recommended Ship Smart. I called and on very short notice they arranged pickup exactly when I needed. Customer service was very helpful and the packing was very professional. They consolidated a large chair, lamps, pictures, and other fragile items into one shipping crate. Delivery was in exactly the time they quoted and delivery was very flexible. Everything arrived in perfect condition. I was very happy with the entire experience.
