In terms of moving, Solomon & Sons covers the spectrum when it comes to available services.
Solomon & Sons considers local moves anywhere within the Broward, Miami-Dade, or Palm Beach counties.
Business relocation services
This can include entire corporate office relocation or smaller employee relocation jobs. Solomon & Sons also handles various industries, including hotels, medical equipment, schools, warehouses, and offices.
Solomon & Sons can also handle long-distance moves. These can be within state, beyond the local move parameters, out-of-state moves, or even international relocations.
Solomon & Sons also has long and short-term storage solutions and deliveries for its moving customers. In fact, when you purchase full-service, you can get 2 weeks of storage for free. Storage units are climate-controlled and located in secure, monitored facilities. Solomon & Sons’ units can house small and large items, including office furniture and storage in transit options.
Solomon & Sons does not have a pricing list. Nor does it have an online quote generator. Bummer. That means you’ll have to call someone and speak directly with a rep to get a quote. Bear in mind that the over-the-phone quote is not binding and it may be higher or lower than the actual price you pay in the end. A few Solomon & Sons negative reviews revolve around this confusion.
Many moving companies cannot provide you with a generic pricing list because moving prices are based on the amount of stuff you are moving, areas you are moving to and from, distance of the move, etc. So, Solomon & Sons isn’t alone in holding out on this info. Local moves can be charged by the hour, while long-distance moves will have an overall estimate given to the project.
However, unlike most movers, Solomon & Sons does offer you a very general ballpark for local moves that are within 50 miles of Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, or West Palm Beach:
Starting at $450
Starting at $599
Starting at $899
These moves include your own moving plan, move coordinators, floor and door protection, pro packing for furniture, and a team of uniformed professional movers.
Solomon & Sons sets prices for long-distance moves accordingly:
From Florida to
Long-distance moves include all fuel, taxes, and tolls. You’ll also get professional furniture wrapping, labeling, documented inventory, furniture assembly and disassembly, loading and unloading, and basic liability coverage.
Things you’ll have to pay extra for include:
Full replacement cost valuation
Partial or full-service packing
Debris removal and cleanup services
One thing that we do like about Solomon & Sons is that it has an entire section on the website for special deals and discounts. At the time of this writing, Solomon & Sons was offering several discounts, including:
$100 off home and auto move bundles
$100 off Miami to Fort Lauderdale relocations
$100 seniors’ discount
$150 military members’ discount
And these are typical of the service. So, you can expect to find coupons, offers, or discount codes on the site all the time.
The moving process is slightly drawn out with Solomon & Sons. It starts with you making contact with a rep from Solomon & Sons. They’ll give you a NON-BINDING price quote. That means it is not a fixed price and can change.
Alternatively, you can have someone come down to your home and give you a free estimate based on the amount of stuff you want to move. This is a more accurate way of getting a quote. And since it’s free, you don’t have much to lose.
Once you’ve agreed upon the price, Solomon & Sons will set up a date for pick-up. If you’ve chosen the full-service, professional movers will come pack up your belongings securely for transit. Otherwise, the crew will come on the appointed date and load up your self-packed items onto shuttles, 18-wheelers, or other moving vans, depending on the size of your move. Additional services will depend on which package you’ve chosen, but items will be loaded and unloaded regardless.
Solomon & Sons operates out of Florida and began its enterprise with local moves across the state. Today, the company has created its own, self-run network of movers to accommodate the entire country. It’s worth noting that Solomon & Sons is not a broker and does not outsource its long-distance moves. Rather, the company itself employs and manages all moving projects, local and cross-country. This is an important distinction because it speaks to the quality of service you can expect from Solomon & Sons.
Solomon & Sons is a family-run business, and it treats customer service as family matters. You can reach out to the customer care team via phone, or send a message for someone to return. The team is available in several languages as well. Additionally, Solomon & Sons has a tremendous library of moving resources that can be helpful for anyone relocating. It includes things like moving tips, what you need to know about insurance and valuation, and movers’ rights.
Speaking of insurance, Solomon & Sons is registered with the USDoT and FMCSA. It is fully-licensed for in and out-of-state moves. In terms of insurance coverage, Solomon & Sons has basic insurance valuation and replacement-cost insurance, which can be purchased at an additional cost.
