Funny Review of the Week

It’s high time for the latest and greatest edition of our Funny Review of the Week series:
Funny mover Reviews

When initially reading this review a few things stuck out that made me think something was disingenuous about this review. First, the sister is submitting the review even though she wasn’t the person who hired the mover. That’s like asking a friend how her food was at a restaurant and then submitting a review for them (“My friend’s food was great. She recommends the linguine. Can’t speak for myself because I haven’t been.”). Does anyone really do this? We found it to be very strange. Do you agree?

Second, the brother allegedly organized the move while his girlfriend was on vacation. I don’t know any woman who would go on vacation and leave her boyfriend to pack up all her personal things, or put strangers in charger of packing up her personal things. (“John, I don’t really feel like moving so I’m just going to spend the week in the Caribbean. Be a doll and move my stuff for me, would you?”). Especially when the guy is known to be irresponsible. What do you think? Would you do something like this?

Third, the review cites hiring the movers as the “best decision ever.” Anytime I see those words in a review I cringe. Staying in school is the best decision ever. Saying no to drugs is the best decision ever. Not starting a land war in Asia is the best decision ever. Are you really that excited about hiring movers? I’ve hired both domestic and international movers before and while I’m very appreciative of their labor and a job well done, I generally don’t consider it eligible for my Top Ten Lifetime Decisions list.

Best of all, if the movers ever hit a rough patch in the moving business they can clearly moonlight as a relationship counselor.

Funny Review of the Week

Adam Vagley @goodmigrations

It’s been a busy few weeks so I’ve been slacking on the blog, but to get back in the swing of things I thought I’d start with a Funny Review of the Week post.

This review comes to us courtesy of tiredofgames, who during two years of membership on Citysearch has only submitted two reviews: one for a moving company and one for a dating service. Her moving company review is so long I can’t even post an image of the full review like I usually do, so I’m just going to post the whole thing below.

It is clearly a fake — the way the reviewer gushes about the company you’d think they delivered her baby and solved world poverty. I challenge you to try reading this in a breathless, vapid voice and keep a straight face.

If you don’t have time for the whole version, here are a few choice bits:

“I was amazed at how quick it was for them to load and ready to get on the road within 3 hours which is about what we all expected they would take.” — She was amazed how quick they were, but it took as long as she expected?

“Once at our new home they cracked the whip, I don’t know where they got the second wind, but these extremely hard workers got it and rolled with their new found wind.” — Cue a montage of guys cheerily loading the truck on their second wind.

“They made some new items look like antiques but fortunately I like that look and was grateful I didn’t have to do it myself.” — What?! What does this even mean? Making new items look like antiques doesn’t sound like a good thing.

If you’re interested,
read the woman’s other review— an over-the-top paragraph about a dating service that’s also good for a laugh (“Thanks Meet-a-mate for not giving up on me and helping me find true love.”). Amazing. Without further ado, here’s the full text:

OMG did I ever regret not using these guys during my last move. The guys arrived just a little after 8:00 AM and I was told they would be there between 8-10 AM. They were ready to get the show on the road even though I had an enormous amount of boxes and antiques. They protected my heirlooms and treated my plants with respect and protected them so they wouldn’t break during the ride as if it were their own property they were moving, which I really appreciated.
I was amazed at how quick it was for them to load and ready to get on the road within 3 hours which is about what we all expected they would take and as we found stuff they didn’t realize they had to take, they made room in the truck to make sure all my valuables went with them safely. The crew moved at a speed I had never seen before and the ride was quicker than everyone expected. It only took them 1 hour which they thought it would be about 1 hr 15 min to 1 hr 30 min. I was pleasantly surprised and relieved at the speed to which they arrived at my new place.Once at our new home they cracked the whip, I don’t know where they got the second wind, but these extremely hard workers got it and rolled with their new found wind. The only thing I was expecting different was that they would unload first what the loaded last and I think that would have made things easier for them and quicker and in turn easier when unpacking but I will not take away from what a blessing these guys were to my mother, my pets, and especially to myself. I could not and would have not been able to survive the stress of moving, working 2 jobs, and finding a new place without the wonderful company of North Star. I hope it’s a long time before I have to move again but when I do move into my purchased home I know for sure I will use them and I will make sure not to forget to buy the Yelp Deal which saved me $50 bucks. Now a day, that’s dinner at a nice restaurant. LOL.

If you want to shop around, I suggest you do to get piece of mind but don’t forget that you get what you pay for and this place not only gives you the best deal, it gives you an even better customer service from the time you open your door to get your estimate which is spot on with what they will end up spending to the moment they leave your property after unloading all your stuff. I was so tired I almost forgot my receipts and they kept calling me and running after me to give me the receipts. I trusted these men with my most precious items and they were great at treating them as if they were their own. Nothing got lost and THEY did not break anything. They made some new items look like antiques but fortunately I like that look and was grateful I didn’t have to do it myself.


Whew!

Funny International Mover Review of the Week

Adam Vagley @goodmigrations

 
We take our review process very seriously over here at GoodMigrations. However, once in a while we get a review that is just too funny not to share. Here is yet another one for our series on funny mover reviews. What I love about this review:

1) The terrible use of English

2) He says their business location on Devon Avenue is the best place to do business with them. Great tip, otherwise people might go to other places to try to do business with them

3) He signs off “Mr. Abu24”

4) He’s going to recommend them to friends and family…but only gave them 3 out of 5 stars

Funny Mover Review of the Week

Adam Vagley @goodmigrations

In my online travels I often come across fake reviews submitted by moving companies to boost their rating on review websites. Obviously these companies have outsourced the job of spamming these sites because the grammar is terrible. Some of the fake ones are so ridiculous I can’t help but laugh out loud (literally). I decided I’d start sharing these in a Funny Mover Review of the Week blog post. Below is the inaugural review, by an Ian Bell, whose self worth is tied up in his ability to choose a mover. Enjoy!
