Most Americans have more possessions than will comfortably fit in their home, and we are no exception. Somehow, we had managed to fill up our modest one-bedroom apartment with a two-bedroom apartment's worth of belongings. Every cupboard and every closet space was utilized, and we still had things coming out of our ears. While I knew we needed to look for a bigger place, I simultaneously dreaded packing all of the stuff we had accumulated and having to move it all. Enter stage left: NorthStar Moving Corp. When project manager Gadi Avigzer arrived to give us an estimate, he was confident that our move should be a regular cakewalk compared to some of the multi-million dollar estates that they are used to servicing.
After all, if they can move Angelina Jolie and Eva Longoria, our place should be no sweat. He estimated that our move should be split over two days; the first day for packing all of our junk, and the second day to move it all. While Gadi was cool, calm and collected, I still had my doubts. How on earth could all the stuff that was pouring out of every orifice of our apartment ever be tamed? The answer to my question was a pleasant surprise.

Friday morning, to our delight, the guys showed up a whole fifteen minutes early and even brought one more set of hands with them, Iron. They wasted no time and dove right in. It seems that they have a system formulated, a sort of assembly line formation, which no doubt took years to develop and perfect, but they are not giving away any trade secrets. When complimented with how fast and hard they work, the guys just smile and say, "Piece of cake!" By 10:00 a.m. the apartment's contents were safely loaded onto the truck and by 10:30 a.m. the guys were unloading the truck into the new place. By noon, the move was officially complete, but these hard-workers stayed an extra half an hour to give us a hand unpacking ALL the boxes so that they could cart away the empty boxes back to the warehouse.
We are extremely grateful to have had a team as efficient and as knowledgeable as Nick, Omar, Gill and Iron. They turned what surely would have been a horrid weekend for us into an enjoyable experience. We can only say,
"Thanks a million" to our expert team and all the insiders at NorthStar that made our move run so smoothly. You saved our time, our weekend, and maybe even our relationship!
In addition to their five-star moving and storage services,
NorthStar contributes to the following charities: Make a Wish Foundation Los Angeles, Children's Hospital Los Angeles, Goodwill of Southern California and sends care packages to our troops in Iraq.
