Countless repairs and home-remodeling projects can undoubtedly trace their lineage back to Paul's Ace Hardware, which began doling out DIY equipment and home-improvement supplies in 1956. Founded by Paul E. Dauwalder, the shop quickly expanded from its original 1,800-square-foot space, branching out to five shops that now operate beneath the expert eye of Paul's granddaughter. Cleaning products, outdoor equipment, and pool supplies are just a fragment of the stores' inventory, with power tools awaiting steady hands, fishing gear beckoning lake dwellers, and building materials—including the Tempe location's 56,000 square feet of lumber—standing poised and ready to be assembled into dams by handy beavers. Still in the city of its founding, the Scottsdale location has moved and upgraded to its own building.
Get Your Move On offers busy relocators convenient, expedient assistance in transporting their worldly possessions to new locations. Entrust couches, beds, and Death Star cookie jars to Get Your Move On's professional movers and reliable trucks, available in a variety of combinations that range from two movers and one truck ($95–$105/hour) to four movers and two trucks ($190–$210/hour). One to two days prior to moving, customers will receive a confirmation email, including the date and start time, plus pictures and life stories of their assigned moving crew. The company's professional team members—all former student athletes—come prepared with shrink wrap, moving pads, and blankets to safely transport belongings from domicile to truck, where they are securely wrapped and stacked to ensure that they arrive the same way they left. The knick-knack transporters then whisk belongings off to any destination within 75 miles and unload possessions into the new house, high-rise apartment, or two-story roller skate. For each move, the crews start their clock when they arrive at the origin and end it upon departure from the destination point. In addition to the hourly rate, customers will be charged one of four zone charges based upon the destination point’s distance from the airport. This fee includes fuel charges and with two movers and one truck can range from $67.50 for off-peak moves within zone one to $260 for regular moves within zone four.
Four Seasons Mechanical, LLC approaches all heating, air-conditioning, and insulation services with honesty and clarity. Its technicians are always friendly and never pressure customers in buying parts or services that are unnecessary. Upfront pricing with no hidden fees is guaranteed, too. Their services can be trusted since they're performed by master heat-pump technicians, as well as NATE-certified and factory service–trained techs.
As native Arizonans, the owners of Penguin Air have been engaged in a lifelong battle against sweltering temperatures. They know there are only two strategies for combatting undesirable climates: a well-functioning heating and cooling system or a human-size hamster ball filled with waist-deep 72-degree water. They chose the former and rallied an army of EPA- and NATE-certified technicians to perform preventive maintenance and install new heating and AC systems.
Thoroughly screened and continually trained, the techs exude professionalism and courtesy. They arrive within one hour of service times lest they provide their services for free, and they stay on call 24/7 in case of system emergencies, such as a nest of spies stuck in the air vents. Penguin Air, a factory-authorized HVAC dealer, also provides high-efficiency systems and performs a free estimate before installation.
