I am well acquainted with packing and of maximizing space and ensuring fragile items packing. I was and am amazed how professionally the packers were at packing the various items and even doubly amazed at how when my wife and I unpacked the boxes upon arrival, the items, and many of the items were of fragile nature (aside from the standard clothing, books, toiletries, linen, ...) such as dishes, paintings, pots, decorations were completely intact and were well buffered such that no damage befell these items. All packing material was sufficiently supplied by the packers. The movers who brought and unloaded the container were also exceedingly efficient. Kudos to all involved. I would highly recommend to anyone the services of Sonigo.
Excellent experience Shmuel and the Israeli team were exceptional to work with - responsive and informative. The final cost was actually lower than the original estimate (I guess I didn't buy enough). Sonigo packers from the Miami area were professional and thorough; delivery in Israel was smooth and helpful. Everything arrived as it left, in perfect condition. This was a challenging time to bring in a shipment - every ship in the world was delayed. No reflection on Sonigo. These are not *normal* times. My experience with the company was excellent and I recommend them highly.
Moving from Woodmere, NY with Sonigo I realize that making Aliyah to Israel is both fulfilling and traumatic. Most of the trauma surrounds the transport of your entire life’s accumulated stuff 6000 miles across the globe. Our experience with Sonigo was trying, but ultimately very successful. Most of the thanks goes to our move manager, Shmuel Mantinband. He went above and beyond, to always be in contact, and to respond promptly and efficiently. Our items were delivered with only minor issues, which all seemed to be resolved quite miraculously. I guess that’s part of the Aliyah experience. Kudos to our packers, whose team packed and loaded a 40 foot HC container in a day and a half, and the four exhausted Jewish/French crew, who delivered to our apartment in a sweltering 8 hour day. Y’asher Ko’chachem!
Recently shipped some household contents/furniture,etc. from new York to Gush Etzion Israel. The staff at Sonigo was very helpful whether it was in filling out forms or answering questions. The movers in America were very professional and cleaned up after themselves. On the Israeli side the company was in contact with us about every step of the way. The movers on our side were very professional and helpful. We would definitely recommend to others.
We moved a 20" container with an overseas shipping from Houston Tx to Israel. I can't recommend ENOUGH on Sonigo. The partner on the US side was informative, knowledgeable, communicative and friendly. The packing company was by far the best packers I've ever worked with- nothing broke on the way, everything was wrapped perfectly and packaged extremely carful. Arriving in Israel, midst Covid19 days, the Sonigo office in Israel was efficient, transparent, no surprises and no extra fees we didn't know about in advance. To sum up, we had such a positive experience I feel the need to spread the word so others could enjoy it as well. They are highly professional, know what they're doing, very experienced- this is the type of company you'd want to handle your life belongings.
Very Good Shmuel kept us in contact regarding our shipment and we were very satisfied. The shipment came on time and even a bit early. Working with Sonigo has been a pleasure.
