"Guys doing the moving are not actually with Cornerstone Removals but they were great! They hire other smaller removal companies to do the actual removal. They were very professional and hard working. Customer service at Cornerstone has much to be desired. They were very good when trying to secure the business obviously but then after that it was just a lot of confusion. Communication was bad and they tried to make me pay more than I agreed on. Overall it went well but dispute over the payment made moving day just a tad more stressful than it shouldve been. "
