The movers arrived on time. An excellent job was done however, I do have concerns with staff provided. I contracted for two helpers for four hours. I expected to get two helpers that could and would act as a team and be able to act alone without direction of what was a "lead". As a result the four hours was pretty much a bust.…Read More Sure my container was loaded, but there was still a lot left that I and my wife had to do alone. When I asked if they could stay an additional hour, no, was the reply, they had to go elsewhere. To sum it up, I expected a complete house move, and received a partial.
The guys who came to our home and moved our belongings into our POD were great! The guys called first and arrived earlier than expected( great!). They were prepared to move all our stuff and did an amazing job doing so. They were extremely respectful of our home of our stuff and of us. They were also really pleasant to talk to a…Read Morend were very well mannered with that perfect sense of humor which we in our household, enjoy! They deserve a 5 star rating! Thank you so very much! Carolyn and Mark Gross
My moving labor helpers arrived within the designated window, worked hard to get everything done in the two hours and did a very good job. They filled the container to handle the maximum amount of goods possible and had to deal with some large and heavy pieces. They were both very upbeat and helpful with my questions. I woul…Read Mored most definitely use them again.
Both helpers did an excellent job at making sure that items were handled carefully and packed with safety in mind. He was even generous enough to provide some times at no cost to ensure that the antique was not moving around in the POD during travel. I highly recommend this company. Great JOB!
I had a very positive experience. My helpers were on time, prepared to do what I asked them ie. move furniture around. They took apart a baby crib for me so it could be moved. They worked hard and were very courteous. I would use them again anytime!
Three of four helpers actually showed up. One of the ones that did show up wasn't feeling well. All three seemed to be moving in slow motion. While the three that showed up did an ok job, I'm not sure if I would use them again. I hired them because I used two people in North Carolina from Hire a Helper that would have run circl…Read Morees around the three I used in California.
My job was last minute when my other plans fell through. With that, they showed up and I was greatful. These guys worked hard and non-stop. One was a quarterback and the other 2 linebackers. The QB did not hesitate to assess the job. He asked me lots of question about the furniture and what I wanted in first. He strategize…Read Mored and gave the othwr two the plan. They knew each other so it was fun to observe them work as a team and enjoy being productive. Having these guys made a miserable task like moving into an enjoyable afternoon. I would hire them again in a minute.
Zac & Javon of 5 Star showed up on time, were friendly and professional and got right to work. They unloaded the U-Haul and a trailer, up two flights of stairs, in just under two hours. They did an awesome job I would definitely recommend them to anyone who needs people to move things for them!!!
The owner of this moving company, Lucas, is very honest and has a lot of integrity. I give his workman Kevin a lot of kudos for his hard work, professionalism, and determination for getting the work done. Definitely would use these guys again for any future moves, which I hope is none, but if it's a few more, then I'll call th…Read Moreese guys!
We hired 2 guys for 2 hours. They were courteous and hard working. Arrived no more than 10 min after the arranged time, but that wasn't a problem - they worked for 2 full hours. I appreciate that they had no problem with me telling them which items to carry in what order. Our biggest items were a 7 foot couch and a queen size m…Read Moreattress, and they loaded them in our truck without a problem despite having to navigate 2 flights of stairs. Other items included 20 small boxes, 15 medium boxes, 2 desks, 2 bookshelfs, chest of drawers, 5 large boxes and various other items. Thank you 5 Star Moving! You have earned our recommendation! (small piece of advice for people hiring help - if you live on a second floor and are moving out of a 1BR apartment that is full of stuff, 2 people for 2 hours might not be enough)
They did a good job, we’re very pleasant and worked hard. They could have stacked the container attempting to minimize “movement” of items and fragility not just space. There was some confusion regarding start time but manager handled it with grace.
Really great guys arrived on time. When I showed them the quantity to be put in the POD, I was told up front, that it may not all fit. I had picked 4 guys for 2 hours, but I had so much stuff, that it took 4 hours. They worked hard, too. Everything was wrapped in plastic, or in blankets. At the end, it seemed like none of m…Read Morey outdoor furniture was going to fit, so we came up with a second plan. The next day 2 guys and a truck came and took all my out door furniture to my daughter's house in SF. Yes, it cost me more than I planned, but I was happy it all got done. I think this is a great company, this is the second time I have used them. Very friendly, always introduce themselves with a hand shake, and are very careful with all the furniture. I will definitely use them again.
Outstanding! Watching them pack my furniture was enlightening, so carefully was it wrapped in blankets/shrink wrap and tape. I knew it would make the journey safely. The pod was pack so tightly and with precision that nothing could shift or roll. And they were friendly and efficient as well. This company is the absolute best you…Read More will find!!!
Beginning with a phone call from the manager Lucas who coordinated the timeline with me and went over my needs, and ending with the two gentleman who moved my entire apartment up 5 floors within 1 hour (ask for Dujuan and Brandon, they make a great team) with absolutely zero issues.

Lucas was able to get 2 people to our site 2 hours earlier than I asked for. Our Pod was delivered earlier than I thought. The two workers did a great job, and never stopped until it was finished. Yes, I would use them again, and would recommend them to anyone. Thank You for a job well done.
We used 5 Star Moving to empty a POD during our recent move to Fairfield, CA. There was a delay in the start time due to communication issues, however, the two young men sent to unload our Pod, Brandon and Ballo, were focused and hard working. They got to work right away carefully moving items and putting beds/tables together.…Read More They were charming and respectful, and I would recommend them to anyone.
There were a few challenges on my moving day itself (arrival time and number of helpers) but the owner went out of his way to make it right. Lalo was very polite and helpful, as was his co-worker, and they were mindful of my cabinetry when handling. I appreciated their efforts and willingness to stay until completed. Thank you!
These young men were very polite and worked hard even though it was so hot outside. The only thing that made me give it 4 *s instead of 5 was that when I did my last walk thru I notice they forgot my dresser mirror so I had to get my neighbor and we took care of it. Thank god for last walk thru. But your employees were still har…Read Mored working and I would recommend them to others. Very respectfully Ivonne Bradford
Kevin and Aaron were wonderful movers. They were both friendly and pleasant, making the process enjoyable and smooth. They also were very efficient when loading and unloading our furniture, making sure our items were safely secured in the vehicle. We are so glad they helped us out and I would recommend them in a heartbeat. Thank…Read More you so much to both of you!!
On time yes. Prepared yes. Respectful yes. Use them again no. They were slow and did not help pack any boxes but one. Took 4 hours with 3 people to load truck when it took only 2.75 hours with 2 people going upstairs to unload truck. Hired three people becausr i knew some stuff still needed to be boxed, caught them multiple time…Read Mores hanging out downstairs. They were nice and friendly but for over $500 I expect more.
There was some confusion about our start time. I had originally booked in the morning, got a call about a week out asking if I could change to the afternoon. No problem. Then, got a call 9:30 morning of the move confirming my morning time! They were able to "shift" their other appointments and come in the afternoon. The guys who…Read More arrived were good, hard workers. They moved a bunch of big furniture that I wouldn't have been able to move myself. But, they didn't move items very strategically. It would have been nice to have all of the boxes moved to the back of the pod/container and then bookcases left to the front for ease of strapping in for the move. The order said "2 hours, with 1-2 extra hours available," but they had to leave at 2 hours because another job had been booked. An extra hour could have gotten the job done. As it was, we had to schedule more hours for the next day. Although I booked with 5 Star Moving, there was no confirmation and I had to have HireAHelper find me emergency, same-day movers from another company. In summary - they were hard-workers, and if I had had a better sense of pod-packing strategy it would have been fine.
On time, prepared, communicative, knowledgeable and efficient. They finished unloading our 8x8x16' POD in one hour and we used the remaining hour to help us assemble furniture. We would highly recommend their services and would use them again. Their supervisor mentioned their crew gets paid a decent wage ($20/hr) and are gen…Read Moreerally happy to do the work.
They arrived 30 minutes outside of the delivery window. Everything was great except for the fact that I paid $12 per moving blanket and this seems quite expensive compared to other moving blankets. I still paid for them and gave the guys a tip on top of the regular rate.
I was very pleased with the services of 5 Star Moving. Our POD was late and we were exhausted with lots more to sort. The guys from 5 Star went right to work carrying out belongings out and moved to the POD as soon as it arrived. They did all of this while maintaining a good and willing attitude. I would certainly recommend …Read Morethem to anyone who needs movers.
Edwardo and his cousin were a great help. They handled all of my things with care and packed my pod with the consideration I'd expect if they were there own things. It did take a try or two to get it right but they finished well within the 2 hour minimum window. I have no complaints and the dispatcher Lucas had informed me that …Read Morethe younger of the two was in training so he would have credited the time had they gone over.
Our movers called promptly to let us know they were delayed by heavy traffic, but more than made up for it with their efficiency and hard work packing our POD. They treated everything respectfully and did a wonderful job filling the box without gaps. They were friendly and fun to talk with as well. Highly recommend.
Great crew arrived at my home on time and ready to pack my pod. Super professional, knowledgable and made everything fit tight and snug. And everything that they took a part to pack they made sure to keep all the screws packed with the items so it'll be easy to put it back together after it's unloaded. Made my life easier so i c…Read Moreould focus on other things. I'll definitely hire them for the unpacking (if they're available)!
These guys are great! Very professional, on time, efficient, wrapped everything so make sure you have plenty of tape, plastic wrap and blankets. I used these guys twice and both times I was very happy with them. They show up and take over the job. I would highly recommend Five Star Moving if you want a good move experience.
Kevin and Zack were the two guys from 5-Star Moving that loaded a 16 foot POD for me. They arrived within their time window, assessed the project and went to work. They worked smoothly and steadily for a solid three hours. They saved me money by using my huge pile of blankets allowing me to return every single moving blanket…Read More I had purchased. There was nothing too cumbersome in the collection to be loaded, but it was still a pleasure to watch those two young, healthy and fit young men effortlessly move everything down three flights of stairs with finesse and expertise. I may just have to break down and hire them to unload. Just wish I could get them to re-home and sell all the crap I had to move! Thanks, 5-Star Moving!
Kevin was the lead on this job. The job was not an easy one, he and his partner handled this with patients and kindness, considering the environment they were working in. Nice and eficent. Thank you Kevin and 5 Star Moving. Sincerely, Hollis Hill
Team did a great job moving some large awkward pieces into our new home. They also moved some existing furniture to make room for the new pieces. They were on time, very pleasant, and had all the tools they needed to partially disassemble a large treadmill so it would fit through the doorway into the house. Awesome job!
Wonderful Men. Pleasant to work with. They worked at a steady pace and finished under the time allotted and packed my janky boxes as best as possible. When I arrived at my destination 1400 miles away, the load was still in the same place, i.e., things didn't slip or move around. Thanks you very much!
Both guys Jesse and (sorry I forgot his name) were on-time, friendly, and efficient. The most important thing is they handled everything with care. I didn't hear any bumps or crashes of furniture into walls, doors or other furniture.

Redwood City, CA
Kevin and Jesse arrived on time and started working after I showed them the items needed to moved out. They took care of the furniture and wrapped them very carefully.

Your three men did an excellent job packing my wife's things into a Pack Rat pod. They were on time and prepared to work. After a brief assessment of what needed to be done, they went about doing it.

We hired a crew of three people for three hours to do the job. Two of the guys were there on time, the other was 45 minutes late. Still, they charged us the full amount, which I thought was not very honest of them. With packing the POD however, they mostly did okay, however they couldn't fit everything in. I think it was par…Read Moretly their fault because they kept forgetting items in other areas, and they didn't bring them near the POD to help them remember they needed to be included, so we ended up having to get rid of those items. The guys themselves were nice people, however, and were workhorses. I just think they needed to get some better organizational and packing skills in order to do the best job.
These movers are smart, professional, careful, kind and were always gentlemen. Kevin and Ben arrived early, worked continuously, and without so much as a groan when a couple of items proved challenging while navigating the stairs. Great company, great attitude. Thank you Kevin and Ben.
I really feel that they went above and beyond the call duty. Although only scheduled to come out for two hours on the projected day of my move; they also came out for two hours on the day before my move to do some packing, stayed for an additional four hours on the day of my scheduled move, and came out for two hours on the day…Read More following to finish loading the container. In addition, they also helped with some disposal work. All in all, a truly exceptional performance. I would not hesitate to give them my highest recommendation.
Hire a helper was excellent from beginning to end. Very good communication, answered all my questions. The two guys who actually moved our things into a pod were friendly, careful and thorough.

The 2 guys that came for 5 Star Moving got the move done, but was a frustrating process. Started out arriving over 2.5 hours after the END of the "window" provided. Once they arrived, they claimed there was no way the items would fit and suggested a $1,000 furniture item to be left behind. We asked them to at least try (afte…Read Morer much discussion), which they ultimately reluctantly did. All items did ultimately fit with even a bit of room to spare. In the end, they did work with us to make it work and the owner, Lucas, was extremely helpful in remedying the situation. In the future, I'd request the earliest move window!
Kevin and Morgan were excellent - five-star service all the way. They were flexible, professional, personable, and very careful... everything I could have hoped for and more.

They guys were cheerful and friendly but did not slow down working at any time. They handled my goods, including a couple of valuable antiques, with care and respect. The job ran about 2 1/2 hours, but that was due to the sheer volume of material to be moved. I mentioned that I might have to get rid of some of the file cabinets they moved for me and Nick said 5 Star Moving could be hired just to move one or two items at an hourly basis; they're not limited to just POD work.. I may consider doing just that latter on. I would definitely use 5 Star Moving again for big or small moves.

Brian and Dylan from 5 Star Moving were professional, courteous, hard-working, and most of all, really impressive at packing our POD.

Our movers were wonderful! They were polite, professional, and efficient. They treated our furniture with care like it was their own. They were on time, listened to my needs, and made our move so much easier. I would recommend them to everyone!
Excellent helpers. Not only did the show up on time and work hard, they went above & beyond to ensure that my POD was loaded efficiently with literally no wasted space. They really are professional packers & movers. Look no further, Five Star Moving is definitely a class act.
I called last minute and they were able to squeeze me in! Life savers! NICK and Elias were AMAZING! They were fast and efficient! Very aware of walls and hardwood floors! Nick was egar to help and so polite! I HIGHLY recommend Hire A Helper!!!!!
Our two movers were unbelievably well organized, which means quick, and worked hard. They also had a great sense of humor, and kept us laughing during what would otherwise have been a stressful time. If there was a sixth star I would give it to them.
Five Star Moving with Kevin and Brian were a pleasure to work with. They were very friendly and amazing with the amount of work they were able to complete in less than 2 hours. We will definitely be contacting them for our main move once our house is sold.

Lucas and the team were great. As so frequently happens in moving, logistics did not work in our favor and the guys ended up sitting for several hours -- but patiently, and understandingly. When my POD was finally delivered several hours after it was schedule, they were flexible in getting everything off the POD so the driver co…Read Moreuld take it away while he was there. Once started, they completed everything in 1 hour -- I'd gotten a three man team to ensure that my POD would be guarded outside in the Civic Center / SOMA district of San Francisco, but we were able to use the third man (and me) to get it done. I couldn't have asked for a better team.
Awesome moving company and I cannot say enough about your 2 guys who helped us move. Arrived ahead of time, Super polite and got the job done. I will definitely recommend them to anyone looking for moving labor help and will book them again this weekend as a matter of fact!
The two man team was on time (within the arranged timeframe) and notified us when they knew what time they would arrive. They wasted no time assessing the job and getting started.

We would happily use them again for any similar needs and recommend this service provider to others.
They confirmed they could do the job on very short notice and even with the short notice they did arrive on time. They were prepared with the needed equipment and work very hard.

Noah and Kevin are very good at what they do. They offered to arrive early and even picked up supplies for us before they reached our apartment. Noah was very methodical and definitely thought out the best way to move pieces. They packed our POD carefully and made it seem like a seamless process. They were great!
The two men that move our furniture back into our house were extremely efficient. They were actually earlier than they anticipated and got right to work. All the requests and items to be moved were done so within the time allotted. There was one casualty, a scratch on a china cabinet we are looking to rub out with some …Read Moreoil and elbow grease. The primary reason for our move was to clear our first floor to refinish our floors. Because of this we wanted extra consideration taken so as not to scratch or dent the new finish.

Thanks Rob, your wife had mentioned when we saw them that the scratches were from when the painters had moved that larger piece ...Thanks again and hope you had a wonderful Xmas

Lucas Connor was friendly and very professional.

Lucas and his crew of two additional helpers were excellent. We were originally scheduled for the previous Friday, but had to make a last minute change of date and the number of individuals required.

This company was AWESOME. What a pleasure to do business with them. From the office to the workers, everyone was professional and kind.

We've researched at least 20-30 companies before choosing 5 Star Moving. Lucas and his team were "exceptional" to put it mildly.

5-Star Moving was great! They were flexible with our moving needs, punctual, and prepared for the job.

The movers who handled our move were very professional and careful with all our belongings, not…Read More a single thing was harmed or broken. They worked quickly and were able to move our 2 bedroom apartment in under an hour and a half. Plus, they gave me advice about the public transportation in our neighborhood. What was most impressive was their willingness to work with the spatial constraints of the apartment. They tried to get our queen sized box springs and large couch up the staircase several times, and then, undaunted, they lifted both up and through a second story window! I was so happy to not have to buy a new couch! I was very pleased with 5-Star Moving and will definitely use them for any future SF moves.
Perfect in every way. We had a difficult configuration to get things into our place but Lucas and Ezekiel were courteous, friendly, professional, and worked their asses off to get it done. Would recommend them to anyone and would definitely hire them again.
Great experience. There was a slight delay in arrival time, but otherwise everything went smoothly. The movers came prepared with dollies and transported my furniture into the new apartment without issue. Next time I'm prepared to move I plan to use them.
Kevin and Ezequiel arrived a little bit late because of an earlier job, but they were very cautious with our furniture, extremely helpful and gave us lots of advice before they left (we were still packing some extra miscellaneous items that would go into the container). I would use them again in a heartbeat!

NIGHTMARE OF A MOVE. On July 13th I submitted a request for same day help loading a POD container and received a confirmation stating "Your HireAHelper Order # 263255 Has Been Accepted by 5-STAR MOVING". When I called 5-STAR MOVING to confirm my reservation I was informed by Lucas, the owner, that he was doubled booked and wou…Read Moreld not be able to honor my reservation on July 13th but that he was available the next day July 14th at 8:00am to assist me. I told Lucas that I was not sure that that would work because I had to move out of my house by 6:00pm on July 14th and that I would let him know. Lucas and I had two subsequent phone conversation in which he was attempting to convince me that he and his helper would be able to complete the job for me. My friends and I had previously disassembled, packed, wrapped and stagged most of my furniture and at that time I determined that it appeared that I had more furniture than I initially had thought. I sent some pictures by text to Lucas showing him the furniture that had been staged throughout the house and Lucas assured me that he was confident that the two of them would be able to fit most if not all of the furniture into the one POD. I agreed to have 5-STAR MOVING come over the next day July 14th at 8:00am to load the POD. At around 4pm I called Lucas to cancel because in my estimation the two of them would not be able to do the job alone in 4 hours. Lucas convinced me that the two of them were 2 strong guys and could do the job and get it done in 4 hours. He was very convincing and I agreed and cancelled Pack & Load Company (who said for one flat fee they would not only load but help us pack all my belongings no matter how long it took). On the morning of July 14th Lucas and his helper (I believe his name was Kevin) showed up on time and promptly got to work. When we submitted our request through HireAHelper the quote stated that they would provide a Furniture dolly: Free, a Hand truck: Free and to our surprise they brought neither a dolly or hand truck. It soon became apparent to Lucas that they were not going to be able to get all of our belongings into the POD and recommended that we attempt to rent a 24' moving truck. I made several attempts to secure a 24' moving truck with no success and had to settle for a 16' truck. Lucas initially informed us that he and Kevin would load the big stuff and that he had another crew scheduled to come over and finish the job including loading the moving truck. Approximately 2 hours into the job Lucas informed me that he and Kevin were in fact going to stay and complete the entire packing job (in my opinion Lucas made the decision that he could string this job out). After 3 hours Lucas and Kevin had only packed 1/4 to a 1/3 of the POD. At this time I went to pick up the moving truck and get lunch for Lucas and Kevin. I returned at approximately at 1:00pm. It took Lucas and Kevin from 1:00pm to 4:30pm to load a 16' moving truck with about a 30 minute break for lunch as well as several other breaks to answer his cell phone to respond to his other clients needs and requests. Throughout the loading process all my furniture and personal belongings were spread out and displayed in my driveway and street. At approximately 4:30pm Lucas said that everything looked good and that we were 99% loaded and that they were done for the day. It was a very stressful and hectic process and Lucas asked for payment and at this time I was pressed for time to get a car carrier before the rental agency closed and did not check his work. After returning from getting the car carrier I noticed that my wife and friends had brought quite a few items into the garage with many more items still left in the house. Lucas said we were 99% loaded but it took us until 11:00pm to finally get the additional items into a storage facility and put the remaining items on my friends truck until the next day. My friends, family and I spent 3 to 4 days packing, wrapping, disassembling and staging everything in an attempt to make this move and transition as smooth and seamless as possible. Lucas and Kevin did not pack, wrap or disassemble one item and most if not all items were staged for them close to a door going outside and still they manage to make the job last 8.5 hours with 3 to 3.5 hours of that to load a 16 foot moving truck. This was one of the most trying and stressful process that I have ever been through or experienced. I would not recommend nor use this company again. In summary this job was made much more difficult because we loaded on the day of my move rather than the day before, which I initially reserved, and would have given us more time to deal with any unforseen issues. They were not prepared because they brought none of the tools that they indicated they would bring. They did work hard but for much longer than should have been necessary. When we went to unload the POD it took three of us to open the door and there was damage to many items. I would not use them again. This was a large 2800sqft house but one POD had previously been loaded and the only item needing to be removed from any upper room was a treadmill.Show Response

We hired three movers but we're told only two could make it - which was fine - but we were also told they'd only charge us for the two workers. We were charged for three workers.

Since I can't post pictures on this review, you can reference the same review with photos on yelp. http://www.yelp.com/biz/5-star-moving-albany?hrid=xUkzNANHWTgdmuWFoBbW9A We used 5-Star moving through hireahelper.com (through the PODS page). It was a complete nightmare. The movers were NOT professional movers at all and I…Read More literally had college buddies who could've done a better job packing the POD. For the packing, they broke a bed, broke a table, put a hole into the wall of the house I was selling and then was nice enough to offer me a "$60 discount" for the damages they did. BTW, that $60 check that they promised never came. Then there is the packing itself. Pictures are worth a thousand words so you can see it yourself. Today, I finally unpacked the POD that they packed for me. First, it took 30 min just to get the door open because it was so poorly packed. When it was finally open, we found another chest that is damaged because they decided it was a good idea to throw the lawn mower on top of it. The wheel on the mini AC unit also broke off because of the stuff that stacked on top of it. We are not done with unpacking it yet, but our bookshelf appears to be damaged in the back of the pod as well. These guys are by far the worst mistake I've ever made in the history of moving. They don't know what they are doing, and are dishonest (Still waiting for my joke of a $60) Don't use these guys. You can literally pull a couple of guys out of a college bar and do better (no offense to the college guys at the bar).
They worked hard under tough circumstances.

Then they helped us grab all the stuff out of our POD even though it was facing downhill and everything was about to top…Read Moreple over. No damage though. They used their car in a pinch to get boxes up the hill to our building, and they were careful with our fragile stuff. Overall I would recommend them.

Definitely, a five star team, professional and also quite pleasant to work with. They arrived on time, got down to business and worked until the job was complete in spite of any difficult tasks that I threw at them. I would hire them again any day -- but no too soon!

This is indeed an aptly named company. Their work stood in start contrast to terrible (and ultimately abortive) service I received from Student Movers. I contacted Lucas with 5-Star about 12 hours before my PODS container was to be delivered. Lucas and Freeman showed up on-time and dominated the job. They carefully and che…Read Moreerfully unloaded a 16-foot PODS container in approximately 75 minutes. They also rearranged items after loading them into the apartment and assembled our very heavy king bed. Lucas and Freeman were professional and courteous. In addition, my wife indicated that they were hot. Absolutely recommended.
When we booked help for our Marin move from Hire A Helper, two companies cancelled us at the last minute - Student Movers and Blaylock Transport Moving Labor Services. When 5-Star Moving showed up with 3 movers on the same day we requested service, we were tremendously grateful. They emptied our large moving truck with speed, …Read Morecare and professionalism. Thank you Lucas and you're kindergarden classmate who did such a conscientious job for us as well as his two assistants.Show Response

Lucas and co were very professional. I am going to be honest they had a problem employee that caused a bit of trouble with his attitude and willingness on the day of the move, but was informed will no longer be employed by them. Lucas handled the situation very professionally and was extremely courteous, I would certainly recomm…Read Moreend them as their conflict resolution skills are expert and the communication on their end was key.

They sent two guys who worked quickly and did a great job packing my relocubes. Although they did not have any moving equipment, they moved quickly and made good use of the time on the clock. I also appreciated that care was taken with my belongings to pack them securely. They actually came earlier than communicated but that was…Read Moren't really an issue.
These guys did a great job! I hired them to unload our pod. They were very flexible on timing and unloaded the pod up 3 flight stairs with lightning speed while maintaining appropriate care. Would absolutely recommend them for bay area moves.
Sorry to break their 5 star review, but although they did a good job, it does not deserve a 5 star. I called the contact person 3 days in advance and communicated our requirements, move size, as well as confirmed the moving time and that we need help assembling the furniture. On the day of move, they did not come at the time w…Read Moree agreed on. The number they provided was also not working. Only after calling HireaHelper did I get a response. They said their phone was broken the day before during a move, and therefore had a new number. That's all fine, but it would help if they could notify their customers of their number change. Also the contact person seemed to be clueless about my move as he couldn't recall any of my move information. Furthermore, they told me that their worker just finished another move, is having lunch, and they will arrive asap. By the time they came, it was already 1 hour and 10 mins over our agreed time. The 2 workers were very friendly and did a good job during the move, but it was evident that they were not professional movers, but rather college kids who's looking to earn a couple extra bucks during the weekend. They were also unable to help us put together the piece of furniture. All in all, the movers were nice and friendly, and handled the move well, but everything else was not properly managed.
Our original movers we booked were a no show. Lucas came to our rescue with in 90 minutes. What could have been a disaster was turned around by the quick response from Lucas. He arrived with a positive attitude and willing to stay no matter what it took. Mike & Mary Westbrook
Used for filling a 16' PODS container. Two guys that came were very nice, fast, and knowledgeable about how to load it. They got it completely loaded in an hour, way faster than I thought it would take. We have used professional movers in the past, and they were by far our favorite. They totally deserve their 5 star rating. High…Read Morely recommend.Show Response
Glad we could be of service !

Those guys worked incredibly hard -- not even complaining about moving really, really heavy boxes up a steep hill! They were prompt, gentle with my things and incredibly polite. Real gentlemen. I'd hire them again for anything that needed doing.
Lucas was on time and called me prior to his scheduled time. He wanted to make sure of what his job consisted of and to make me aware of what I needed to have to make the job go smooth. They worked consistently without my having to prompt them to get going, they were respectful of my property and I would use them again.Show Response

My helpers showed up on time and they were very neat and professional. They took extreme measures to protect furniture, walls and hardwood floors. One piece that they moved was extremely heavy and they handled it very well. I highly recommend them and would definitely use them again.
I used Safety First Moving to help move a couple of heavy items to the upstairs of my home. They were very courteous upon arrival and set about moving the items in a very professional way. They were very careful not to scratch or dent anything in the process, while still working quickly. I was very satisfied with the results an…Read Mored would use them again in a minute. -K.

We were very happy with the service! Lucas and Nate were friendly, easy to work with, and accommodating to our needs. They worked hard and got much more done than we expected. Our lack of organization didn't faze them. We would recommend them highly.
Lucas Cannon and his partner were excellent and worked steadily the whole time they were here, even managing to get all the packed boxes into my one car garage with three large pieces of furniture and left room for my car. All items were carefully packed the same way I would have chosen and I had great confidence in them from…Read More first meeting. I will recommend them to anyone I know.
These two young men were what you hope for when you move, but hardly ever get. They were both hard working, experienced and polite. This was the easiest and most pleasant part of the move, and I just wish everything else had turned out as well.Show Response
your a sweet lady Kathryn thanks so much glad we could help

The two guys were 5 star quality movers, very careful with fragile things of which I had many boxes of dishware and went the extra mile when I had them haul some trash out of the backyard, fast and efficient and nice looking to boot. Thank you, A.L.P.Show Response
