West Coast East Coast Express - San Antonio Reviews

I chose West Coast East Coast Express as my vehicle transporter in a very important time in our lives. I... read more needed to have my vehicle transported across the country due to an urgent move, because my husband was ill.After searching many companies and receiving lots of quotes, I chose WCECE because of two reasons. 1. They were the only company that accepted payment with credit card up front, not Cash On Delivery COD.2. They were very responsive and I was provided information consistantly, even though it was not easy to understand the process, I had to be patient, but they were helpful whenever I called to ask.What was dissatisfying was the cost, their price was $400 to 500 more than all other quotes. This business is a crap shoot. You must read reviews and go with your gut instincts. I had a very expensive vehicle (meaning a newer Honda Pilot) that was very important in the function of my life and I feared it becoming damaged in transit. I'm pleased that the timeline that was given to me in my scheduled pick-up happened within that time and it arrived safely to my designated person who received it - on time. A slight scratch is what was new, but sometimes it's the price you pay in having your vehicle on a huge vehicle carrier through all types of weather and movement.My vehicle was transported in summer. The vehicle was picked up a couple blocks away from my house because I lived in a condo complex with a very tight parking lot. The vehicle was dropped off on the street where I was moving to, removed from the transporter and drivin to a parking spot outside my new home. A vehicle inspection was done with my receiving person and the driver, and a bill of laden was signed indicating the new scratch and the keys were handed over to my receiving person.Over all, I felt thankful for the reviews people left for this company so I could find some peace (as little as it was - because no one really likes giving their personal vehicle to someone else and trusting them) in getting my car to it's new home in a very concerning time in our life. I have expressed to WCECE that I believe their pricing was very high in comparison to the other quotes. I think I understand it has a lot to do with getting the vehicle picked up quicker by a carrier transporter - I gather that they will come get your vehicle sooner, rather than place someone elses vehicle on their truck if they paid less. Like everything, there should be more standard pricing and not a game. It's very hard to place a pick-up date and the date have a 2-5 day window range before you get picked up.Good luck to those that need this service. Read all reviews for every company you are considering. Look up the BBB and check of everything. I would use this company again if I ever needed their services again, which I hope I never do need them. Our move was very stressful, this was only one facet - but it was the best we could have expected. read less8/10/2018Marcia D.Los Angeles
I picked WC EC Express since their reviews were all great (other cross country movers had horror reviews about belongings... read more being destroyed by the time they reached their destination). Also, Kelly in sales was super nice and personable over the phone. She made me feel comfortable right away. This company also takes their reputation very seriously and will do whatever is possible to make sure you're happy and the move is a success (5 star success). John in customer care was wonderful and helped me with all my concerns along the way.The packing crew did such a great job that there was zero damage to any of the furniture they packed which I think is AMAZING!! I've had local moves where at least something gets messed up a little bit. The drop off crew was just as good and worked really hard to get everything done as quick as they could. They even carried my giant asian cabinets up the stairs since they wouldn't fit in the elevator. Very hard workers!! This company is AMAZING and if you want to make sure your possessions make it to you in perfect condition I highly recommend them!! read less4/23/2018Irena P.San Francisco
ECWC Express helped me move seamlessly from Baltimore to the SF Bay Area. They were very professional in every respect.... read more Prior to the day of loading the truck they contacted me to confirm the day they would arrive and gave me a window of time of arrival. On the day of pickup they called a hour in advance to alert me that they were on their way. When the men arrived they were courteous and professional. They were extremely thorough in wrapping all my furniture and mirrors and then loaded my items on their truck with care. I felt they absolutely knew what they were doing which made me feel confident that they would take care of my possessions. As my items were being transported the company texted me daily to alert me of the status of the truck. A representative also called me on a daily basis to see if I had any questions or concerns. I did have a concern once about the delivery date because I felt there was some confusion among the delivery people and this was immediately addressed and resolved. My items were delivered at the very beginning of my delivery window, which was a pleasant and unexpected surprise. The men who unloaded my things in the Bay area were just as courteous and professional as the men who helped me at my place in Baltimore. I found everything to be intact and in good condition upon delivery. I have communicated with the company several times since my move has been completed and they have continued to be helpful and professional. I would definitely recommend entrusting ECWC Express to transport your household cross country. You are in good hands. read less4/03/2018

I shipped both my cars from Texas to California using them. Excellent pricing and super fast delivery. In fact I... read more was so surprised as to how they could deliver my car within 3 days for the amount of distance. The driver did a VERY thorough inspect on pick up and marked even really small scratches and dents. I would highly recommend these guys. read less11/01/2017David M.San Francisco
After looking for moving companies and being quoted outrageous pricing for our move to Austin, Texas from South San Francisco,... read more we found West Coast East Coast Express. Some movers wanted upwards of $13,000 to move us. It was actually my dad who found West Coast East Coast and my wife and I called one day to try and get a quote. We spoke with Sarah Davis who was the most helpful. She was our contact throughout and was the definition of honesty, responsiveness and helpfulness. She started the entire process by issuing us a quote based on the items we were bringing. Not by weight. Not be size. Just the inventory list. If we stick to the inventory list, then it is a guaranteed price. When all was said and done we had everything we wanted to being quoted for less than $3500 total; including insurance. We booked then and there and gave a credit card to guarantee our cost.We went through a few revisions of the inventory list but was assured that the price quoted was the price quoted. We wouldn't be charged more the day of the move or delivery. Lo and behold moving had arrived and we were pleasantly surprised to find the movers were professional, courteous, fast and careful. They packed everything we had and loaded it up in about an hour and a half. Fast forward to the move in date. We received our items 5 business days after the start of our guaranteed delivery window (within 14 business days of the first date the delivery can be accepted). And we received ALL of our items. All in perfect condition. And not a single additional charge or hidden cost. We even got text updates each day of where our stuff was once loaded on the truck to get here. If you are planning a move and want the stress removed, contact WCEC Express. read less10/17/2017

Our overall experience with WCECE was excellent! We moved our entire home from San Francisco to New York City last... read more month. The truck arrived in NY as promised and I have to say the crew on both end did a fantastic job. Prompt, effective and very professional are the words to describe these guys' work! Everything arrived in NYC was in its original shape, nothing was damaged or even scratched. We were very satisfied with these guys! And yes, we would definitely use them again for the future moving needs and we would recommend WCECE to our friends and people who are planing to move. read less10/03/2017Andrea M.Los Angeles
I recently moved from Southern CA to Cleveland, and had a very positive experience with West Coast East Coast Express.... read more I was sold by the guaranteed quote, which only changes if what you're shipping changes--be specific when you list out what you need moved and you'll be fine. The movers were late on both ends, but not egregiously so--especially considering Southern California traffic. Despite the late hour (the movers arrived around 8 PM on both ends) they were courteous, thorough, and efficient. I didn't get the sense that they just wanted to finish the job and get home. Instead of being angry about my three-month-old puppy yapping at them while they worked, the movers in Cleveland actually played with him while I did the paperwork. The only issue I had with my move was that I had a small (maybe 30") TV that broke--it was disassembled incorrectly--everything else came through the cross-country move fine! I wasn't going to make an issue of the TV, but the company followed up with me and gave me the cash I needed to replace the TV, no questions asked. So, great service all the way around. I would definitely use West Coast East Coast Express again. read less8/18/2017

1) Super simple to make an appointment with West Coast East Coast Movers. I even needed to contrast rates and... read more different moving companies so I was somewhat reluctant at first. The front desk manager I talked with said to get back to them whenever I want with no pressure. They appeared to be truly flexible! 2) My appt was at 10 AM, they called me at around 9:15 AM and said they were leaving their warehouse. Arrived even 10 minutes earlier3) With each move, I anticipate a little harm to furniture; particularly since my new residence was really tight. I have not noticed even a ding on my furniture. Nothing excessively insane by any means, they took care of my furniture with care. 4) Extremely persevering. David and Chris were moving quick and never eased up! My employment kept going ~ 5 hours, I was impressed!! 5) sadly my love seat didn't make it into my new residence since it was too huge to fit through an entryway. They offered to take it to their stockroom however my homeowner was sufficiently thoughtful to make room. In any case, I'm super appreciative for the choice. Likewise, after they were done, I understood I may be in an ideal situation having it wrapped and put it to the storage room... They returned and wrapped it!All in all, my move was great and I'm super appreciative for West Coast East Coast Movers diligent work and complete. They transformed stressful day into a breeze! Super grateful! Exceptional thanks to David, this person really knows what he's doing! read less4/26/2017Steven M.San Francisco

I needed a cross country mover to help get me from Sacramento to Tucson, AZ. I was searching the web... read more for a long time and hopped on Yelp to see and I found these guys of "West Cost East Coast Express," located here in Sacramento. I needed to move in less than two weeks so I was quick to make the call and get a moving date in place.

They didn't lollygag around or play, they were professional and greats workers, unlike ones I've had in the past from other companies. After we had everything packed in the box and all the heavy items lifted and placed in the moving truck, we all loaded up and they followed me the whole way to my new residence in NM. These guys did an all around amazing job, you guys really live up to your name and really raise the bar for the quality of work that you say!

Welcome to San Antonio, Texas
With its population of almost 1.5 million residents, San Antonio is the second most populous city in the state of Texas, right after Houston. It is also the seat of Bexar County. It lies some 75 miles to the southwest of the state capital, Austin.
The city was named after Saint Anthony of Padua, a Portuguese Catholic priest and friar of the Franciscan Order. It was founded in 1718, but it took over a hundred years for it to finally be incorporated.
The Weather of San Antonio, Texas
San Antonio experiences a transitional humid subtropical climate. This means that summers in this city are quite hot, while winters are warm and pleasant. Winter nights in San Antonio can be a little colder, with about ten to fifteen nights a year reaching sub-freezing temperatures. Snow is quite rare in the area and occurs only once every four years. The all-time record was 16 inches of snow back in 1985.
Unlike snow, floods are quite common in the area, as rain is plentiful during summer. Tornadoes have been reported several times in the city, although they are not that common.
In short, if you are moving to San Antonio, get rid of all your winter clothes, but hold on to your umbrella.
