Many moving companies charge customers for utilizing stretch wrap. Actually, stretch wrap is the number one customer upcharge employed by moving companies. Stretch wrap charges can range from $30 to $120 based upon the number of rolls that the movers use. In actuality, stretch wrap offers absolutely no protection for your furniture while it is being moved and transported. Some moving companies use stretch wrap to secure moving pads to the furniture when they could be using moving rubber bands or tape. If your items are being placed into storage stretch wrap should never be used on wood or leather furniture because, even in dry climates, it will trap moisture resulting in surface damage. Wrapping upholstered furniture is acceptable; however, covering with Kraft storage pads is much more economical.

Unfortunately, the moving industry has its share of dishonest businesses. Avoid becoming a victim by using only established, licensed, and insured moving companies like Allstar Movers to protect yourself from one of the many common scams, Allstar Movers always recommends and provides the following: Guaranteed estimate: A common scam for moving companies is to provide an guesstimate then add on additional charges once your belongings are in their possession holding your items hostage pending payment. Allstar Movers will always provide a written confirmation that includes billing rates prior to your service date. Hidden charges: Here is a list of common hidden charges that will shock you when you are asked to pay the bill: a fuel surcharge of up to 21% of your total bill, charges that can exceed $100 per flight of stairs or elevators, $40 to $100 for long load/unload walk distances, $65 to $130 for stretch wrap, $40 per item for moving large items like refrigerators, dressers, armoires, entertainment centers, desks, treadmills, etc. A (4) hour job that you have estimated to only cost $119.80 can end up actually costing $729.54 when all of the hidden charges are added it. Proof of insurance: Always check to make sure a moving company can provide proof of general liability insurance and worker's compensation insurance to protect you during your move. Without general liability and worker's comp insurance you may be personally at risk for liability that is not covered by your renter's or homeowner's policy. Two million dollars general liability is the coverage that you should expect a moving company to carry. Licensed company: Many advertised moving companies are not licensed with the Arizona Corporation Commission. Consequently no governmental record of the company or the responsible company personnel exists. In the event that you, the customer, should have an issue, your recourse may be very limited. Legitimate and Established Business Location: A increasingly common scam with craigslist and backpage advertised budget movers is abandonment and/or bait and switch. One is the practice of loading your belongings in a truck, and leaving never to be seen again. Allstar Movers is an established moving company with an office located in Phoenix, AZ. The other is common “bait and switch” involves adding additional charges (see above) at the end of the job that were not disclosed when you scheduled service. Established, reputable moving companies do not use brokers found on websites claiming to provide numerous quotes from several moving companies. Brokers are merely middlemen who provide customer leads and collect fees from the moving company. These fees increase customer costs and you may have no control of what company will provide service for you. Branded vehicles: A sign of a fly by night or illegitimate moving company are moving vehicles with no company logos or information. A big “red flag” is a purported moving company utilizing “rental” trucks, like Budget, U-Haul, etc. All moving trucks in our fleet at Allstar Movers will be labeled clearly with our company information for your reassurance and protection. Business History and Ratings: When trusting your belongings to a moving company it is always a good idea to check the reputation of the moving company in advance. Important Clarification: Allstar Movers is not now nor has it ever been affiliated with Allstar Moving and Storage, Inc. aka Allways Moving and Storage, Inc. Allstar Movers owns all rights to the registered trade name “Allstar Movers.” For any additional information or business references stop by our Glendale, AZ office or contact us by phone or via email through this website.
Paul A. Excellent professional and nonstop workers!!!
Metro Movers did an outstanding job with our move from Scottsdale to Tucson.
Lynette was my first contact to get a quote and she was very fast,
accurate and accommodating. We had a 4 foot by 6 foot oil painting that
needed to be boxed for storage and she said they could do it and did do it.
We had to cancel the first moving date because our house sale fell
through and then the second moving date had to be moved up by a day with only 2
days notice (I spoke to Lynette on Christmas eve to change our move from 12/27
to 12/26) and she was able to make the schedule changes without any extra
Donald and Garett did an outstanding job packing the moving truck, protecting
our furniture, boxing our oil painting and unloading the contents into a
storage locker. Donald and Garett were very professional and fast, they
had all of the necessary equipment to protect and secure our household contents
in their carpet lined truck for the drive to Tucson from Scottsdale.
I would use Allstar Metro Movers again, if the need arises and would definitely
recommend them to everyone.
The movers were friendly, professional, and obviously knew what they were doing. They had a smaller truck to work with but knew how to load our furniture to minimize the number of loads they had to take. No issues whatsoever with damaged furniture, etc. We are extremely happy with the move. It went rather smoothly.

Read an article the other day about “All-Star” movers and was reminded of how the movers hired from your company warned me about them. That was about five or more years ago and man were they right! I’ve used your company 3 times now and have always been pleased with the work and the price. Each time I gave the movers an unsolicited tip to show my satisfaction. You may recall my last move, first week of August, when I was making the most stressful house purchase I’ve ever made and hope to never repeat. It was hell!! We had three moving dates and changed from a small trailer to a large one and finally a small one again. You could have added to my stress and made things worse but you didn’t. You remained flexible and accommodating during this extremely stressful time. My crazy seller tried to back out on two closing dates and after a week delay from the second closing date, we moved. I’ve bought and sold a number of houses during my life but this one was a nightmare. As I look back on this ordeal, I remain thankful for you, your company and the good movers provided. You’ve earned my future business and referrals. Thanks again!
