Dear Mr. Lamendola,

On behalf of the University of Rhode Island, please accept my sincere appreciation to you and your staff at Astro of New England, LLC for your contribution of moving services for a recent event held at the URI Foundation.

I know I speak for the entire URI Foundation when I say “thank you” for this support.  It is truly appreciated.

Hi April, your company and men were terrific! They were polite, informative, and very careful and deliberate with our move. All fine , strong young men who cared about the job they had to do, and also my satisfaction. I will definitely refer them to anyone needing a move. Thank you. Richard L.

Dear Lynne and Elisa,


My shipment arrived yesterday and I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone involved! Although I’m quite an experienced mover, this was the first time I’ve used a long distance mover. So thank you both for guiding me through the process and calming my fears.

Everyone I dealt with was extremely professional, including Dick Manchester and Elton. Dick kept me informed throughout the process, arriving promptly at the appointed times (both in RI and Fl) and worked quickly and efficiently to complete the task. They were both helpful and very pleasant.

So again, THANK YOU to both of you and your staff for making this daunting task go smoothly.

Warm regards,

Sally C.

Dear Mr. Lamendola,

It certainly was a honor to have spoken with you personally a few weeks ago, & just today that parcel had arrived for Rick, which he certainly would like to thank you very much.

Our letter, was merely a reflection of both the pride & professionalism shown, & your co’s efforts certainly did not go unnoticed! Shall we ever need the services of a mover, your co will be called.

Again, our sincerest appreciation & DO continue to wish that every trip be a safe and successful one! And a safe holiday season as well.

Dear Sirs:

Today, while traveling on I-95, I had pulled off & went into the rest area with my son Rick.  Your driver had left a most favorable impression upon both of us, by the professionalism shown, & the well maintained & upkept straight van.  You co’s efforts to portray a professional image was clearly noted, especially these days, when the golden rule of the public is to complain, than pass along a compliment instead.

Rick was very impressed & had to look over your co’s entire van!  He would like to ask you Sir, if he could possibly purchase or obtain a patch or logo of Astro of New England, as you really made my son’s day!!

May we wish you many very safe & successful year ahead!

Dear Christine,


Although it has been seven months since Astro moved our household from Wakefield, RI to New Bern, NC, I want to very belatedly express our appreciation for the opportunity to work with your company and to just say “Thank you”.

On the morning of December 11, 2014 Justin Briggs and his crew arrived at our home and began the daunting task of packing up our belongings from the house, the garage, and a storage unit in Peace Dale.  We were very impressed with the professionalism and expediency of this team and it was clear Justin had the experience to know what needed to be done, how and in what sequence.  It was truly a fine ballet, and on three different stages!

Justin and Mike arrived at our North Carolina address on the morning of December 13 and very efficiently moved what was needed into this short term rental condo off the truck; the remainder of our belongings were driven a short distance away to another storage unit. Again, we were impressed with the professionalism and courteous manner exhibited by these capable representatives of your company.  They also had a great sense of humor which was particularly helpful given this somewhat stressful time during our relocation to another state.

I also want to mention that is was a pleasure to work with you. The assistance you offered in the estimate of our costs and with making all the necessary arrangements for our moved were very much appreciated.

We have just purchased our new home in New Bern, NC and although the movers we contracted with to move us from the condo and storage unit to the new house were equally professional; and a pleasure to work with, my husband and I commented on how we would have liked to work with Justin and his crew again.  This is what prompted me to write this letter even after all this time that has past since working with Astro.

My husband and I owned a retail and service business for 29 years in Rhode Island.  We know very well it is more likely that you hear complaints from people who are unhappy than from those who are happy with your work.  That’s why we wanted to let you know we were pleased with our experience with your company and would certainly be comfortable if you wanted to share our thoughts in any testimonials or references you feel appropriate.

Dear Elisa,

I was extremely happy with the movers today. They were professional, friendly, and FAST! I would recommend them to anyone and it was money well spent. I took care of the boxes. Please tell the movers I said thank you very much for making a stressful day as easy as possible!

Hi Lynne,


Just want you to know that our move is complete and everything went well.  More importantly we want to express how pleased we were with the crew who performed the move.  Joe, Jeff and Matt were individually and collectively exceptional.  They were professional, courteous and efficient.  We have moved several times in the past and they were by far the best movers we have ever worked with.  Based on our experience we will highly recommend your company.


Thanks and best regards,

Harry and Carole Moundas


2/3/15 Hi Elisa.

Thanks for the note.  I won’t be needing box pick-up, but that’s a really cool service and I didn’t know about it.  Larry and Joe were great.  They were efficient and willing to do anything I needed in the time allotted.  They finished early and I was able to get “moving” with the rest of my day.

Thanks for checking in,

Tracey Hayes


Hi Elisa,

Moving with Astro was a wonderful experience. Tim, Tom & Brian were professional and conscientious. They worked hard to care for my many boxes of delicate collectibles. They were very obliging making sure to place each item in the exact spot of our preference. They were mighty and strong and transported oddly-shaped bead units without weakening at the knees. The estimate was accurate and fair.  I would highly recommend Astro to others looking to move in the area. Thanks for everything.
