Using more storage units means spending more money. It also might require more drives back and forth either on the part of the company or you. That sound you hear is the swoosh of all the money being sucked out of your pockets. Still, I can understand how this option can be convenient and affordable for kids moving into the dorms and those in smaller homes and apartments. And I - as I've mentioned time and again - appreciate the thought of not having to drive this stuff on a huge truck. Yes, it's always worth repeating.
Great product, great customer service, fast shipping! I have always been a stickler on changing my filter monthly because to me it’s better to spend a few extra dollars along the way then pay a large maintenance bill. I love this service because I no longer have to remember to go to the store to buy the filters and I just replace it when it shows up at my front door!
After reviewing the website and Door to Door® Services Offered, I was ready to call customer service and get a quote. Yes, you have to call. Live chats and online quotes do not exist for their moving services, but they are available for storage. I also looked at the areas the company serves beforehand. Although there is only one Door to Door location in New Jersey located in Randolph( which is 50 minutes to an hour by car from my home in Fort Lee), there are locations in New York that are much closer.
The best water filter solutions are known as Whole House Water Systems or Point-of-Entry Systems. They are perfectly suited for those looking to address water problems before the water enters the home. Thus, all water is cleaned whether for cooking, drinking, laundry, bathing, or watering the vegetable garden. This means that every faucet in the home (and even outside faucets) delivers clean, safe, great tasting water!
There’s no co-mingling or transferring. Your belongings stay put until we deliver to your destination. And there’s one household shipment per trailer. Any space you don’t use is used to ship commercial goods moving in the same direction. Trailers are equipped with secure divider walls (most are lockable), and you can put your own lock on your ReloCube and keep the key.
Undergravel filters sit below the gravel (yet another filter name that leaves nothing to the imagination) and suck water and debris through the gravel. The idea is that the debris will get trapped in the gravel. Then the debris-free water passes up through the tubes. An airstone and air pump are attached to the top of the tube to create the suction.
Some of my goods were damaged clearly during transportation. Additionally, it was impossible to arrange delivery and pick up times once you picked your day. (This inconvenienced the buyers of my home, as the storage containers sat in front of the house until 5pm despite closing at 10am.) However, I booked them for their convenience and their customer service is great.
While The Home Depot uses FPR, the industry standard is to use the air filter rating system of Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV). The MERV rating system helps you choose the filter right for you, with each rating dictating the effectiveness of a filter. The higher the MERV rating, the more efficient the filter, and the more a filter can catch harmful pollutants.
I found that Door 2 Door ends up adding on fees until their containers are no longer a good value for their size. I also found that promises made to me by sales associates on the phone were different than their actual procedures and charges. It seems that they promise you convenience and customer service but then when it is time to deliver on those promises, the story changes. I also found that the delivery driver of the truck was pretty rude and dismissive. I would not use them again.
Door to Door went into bankruptcy while my containers were in transit from Austin, TX to Sacramento, CA. There was NO communication from them as to where my containers were and WHO would deliver them. I googled them to find out what the heck happened to them.......no one would respond to emails or phone calls. I spent 6 weeks tracking them down and finding out that UHaul had bought them out of bankruptcy! I had to physically walk the UHaul container yard to FIND my containers. This was the WORST moving experience ever imagined.
To help put this into perspective, a hair from your head is about 60-75 microns in diameter. Particles under 35 microns are not visible to the naked eye. You can’t see most of the contaminants in the air. Pollen particles can range from 10 to 100 microns in size; dust from 0.5 to 5 microns; human dander, 10 microns or higher; etc. The majority of harmful particles are less than 5 microns in size.

Make your managers actually go out on calls once the sales reps are able to run company appointments. Most people in my training class had gone out on 5+ appointments before training was over, yet in our office we did not go on one. I never went to an appointment with my manager, which was rather aggravating and the compensation plan is terrible. No wonder there is such a quick turnover rate with residential sales... reps.
8p this past saturday this dude in his mid 20s came to my door selling something similar. he led on that he represented (was subbed for) the utility company. he kept insisting that he needed to see my water shutoff valve and he had something that would save me a lot of money (more money than i actually pay in water consumption!). i kept letting him talk just to shoot down his bullshit circle talking, it was more amusing for me to troll his nonsense and keep him in the cold while wasting both our times. definitely didn't let him in. interesting how others also agree this was bullshit, yet sad to know others fall for this.
On the other hand, college students who had used the moving service reported lots of back and forth because the company said it had "overbooked" and could not deliver their stuff to them on time. In the end, the students ended up paying movers to pick up their stuff and spent more than they had planned, according to a review posted by Hali M. in Stanford, CA.
Update 04/28/2018: This is actually an old update, but this video wasn't getting much traction at the time, so I didn't feel the need to provide one. The Enbridge Obundsman reached out to me to get more details of the case. After I discussed everything with them, they said they would perform and investigation and get back to me. After about a week, they called me back and said the investigation would be performed internally from here on out. They gave me no details of of what happened or if any changes are being made. I am under the impression that they changed absolutely nothing. I informed them that there are many other cases of the same type of fraud as many other victims have reached out to me in a similar situation. They said due to privacy reasons, they cannot discuss the cases with those customers and everything is dealt with on a case-by-case basis. It makes no sense to me why they would deal with something as serious as fraud on a case-by-case basis. It should be taken a whole and if there are multiple cases of fraud, then the company should be banned billing through Enbridge. Due to Enbridge not taking any action, they are essentially helping this company commit fraud. I hope this video can shine some light on the many victims falling prey to this scam and changes will be made in the future.
I have no prices to ponder. But I did check out online reviews of the storage and moving options the company offers. Door to Door has three out of five stars on Yelp. Many of the most recent reviewers ultimately chose Door to Door because the price was significantly cheaper among the portable storage container companies. However, many had mixed feelings about the customer experience when discussing the move and storage, so the question of value is up in the air.
The Brita On-Tap Faucet Filter uses carbon to remove common contaminants like lead, chlorine, asbestos, and more from your drinking water. The unit simply screws onto your kitchen faucet, and one filter can be used on up to 100 gallons of water. As an added bonus, it includes a built-in filter indicator that lets you know when to replace the filter. Reviewers say this product leaves their water tasting cleaner, and many love how easy it is to install and use.
