You can see some comments in the Personal Services - Moving link in Browse Projects, at lower left - also some hints on moving issues, insurance during the move and storage, etc.

If you google a search phrase like - long distance mover reviews - you can find several websites giving reviews. If you burrow enough, there is also a Department of Defense webpage with the cumulative employee/servicemember post-move rankings for both continental US and all overseas movements paid for by the DOD - last time I looked at it, was on DLA website (Defense Logistics Agency).

It has been a few years since I used a moving company, but I have always found Allied, Atlas, and Bekins reliable - in my experience in about ten moves including four land and sea overseas moves I felt most comfortable with Bekins (and would likely choose them again) and had only one very minor damage case because they seem to use a lot more moving blankets and padded packing paper than other movers I have seen (though of course you pay for that) - though they do tend to run amok with the existing damage symbols on the inventory when packing.
