Everything was explained in detail and the move went perfectly. I even ended up paying less than my estimate indicated. I recommend them highly.
The sales person makes tons of promises that she cannot deliver on. Told me she would be able to give me the day when the movers would come for my belongings in a few days, it ended up taking two weeks to get this date. Guys who showed up were good, I will give them that. But, then days after they took my belongings, I receive a call stating that I was going to be charged for about two hours of labor to repack some of my boxes. Sales person even stated that it was the fault of the guys who picked my stuff up. And this need for repacking of course happens when they all ready have my stuff. Somehow, two hours got billed at six hours. When I later questioned this, I was given a rather vague answer that this is what the driver billed. When my things arrived, the driver states that he could not fit the truck into my complex and it was going to cost me an additional $300 for them to rent a smaller truck and reload my stuff. Again, another added charge that you get before you even get your stuff. Guys who came back with my stuff were good, bit not employees of Deaert Sun or Wheaton. But then, while guys were here working and putting things together, a guy from Wheaton shows up, just walked right into my home, and starts telling the guys that they need to finish up. They only reason I knew he was from Wheaton was because he was wearing a Wheaton shirt. He only bothered to introduce himself after he could tell I was irritated with him just walking into my house. I'm not kidding about the walking right in, he did not knock or anything. I have twice asked to speak with the general manager and have yet to get a call. My couch is broken, and some of the boxes that they had to repack have broken items as well. I would not recommend this service to anyone.
