★ ★ ★ ★ ★ All in all a good experience! In & Out Moving & Storage were on time and they communicated well. We only had one issue; I wanted them to bring four movers to move a big piece of furniture, but they only sent two. However, the two guys were able to figure it out and they were helpful. All in all it was a good experience!
