CMS2CMS did an amazing job migrating a very very old CMS to Wordpress. And they also migrate our large forum. They are quick with customer response which is great and have helped with any issues that I saw.

Worth every penny. Saved us many hours of hand-moving data. It got all the data from the old Drupal site and placed it in the new WordPress site. There was a slight hitch with the test, but their support worked it out very quickly.

The Hippo roller website used Joomla for five years and to implement the major decision to move to Wordpress meant moving hundreds of articles and images from K2. This seemed like a daunting task until we tested cms2cms. BRILLIANT!

I've done the test migration from Joomla to Wordpress and I could not be happier with the results! It even ported over videos connected with the articles, just fabulous.
