Shaun Gomness = A-1 Premium Moving

WOW.  I dont think that I have ever seen a moving company put so much attention into the care of their clients stuff.  A-1 wraps all the doorways, stairs they literally roll out the red carpets all around you home, and they wrap each and every item in moving blankets.  The attention to detail is nothing short of impressive.  Check them out at a1premiummoving.com or like them on facebook.com/a1premiummoving I left our meeting on March 1 very impressed.
