On time (actually early - I was still picking up the truck). Very professional; careful; understood what needed to be done; had equipment to make it easy. They made it a very good move. I will use them again this week for part 2 of my move.
This is the worse moving company that there is.. DO NOT USE THEM. they threw my furniture and fragile items into the crate, refused to use the straps that I purchased and just draped blankets on furniture. They also layed metal garden tools and ladders up against up against my furniture. I had to hire a another moving compa…Read Moreny to unload and reload that entire crate.
This time crew deserved 5 stars as they more cautious of my heavier furniture, which did not receive any dings as in the unloading of first POD. Since I was able to show supervisor actual dings he apparently shared info with crew. No problems. They were still hard working, polite and courteous. Would hire them again!
Crew is hardworking, polite and courteous. Even though they did a good job my Italian master bedroom set is very heavy and received several dings to the finish. One drawer had two parts broken off. Had to file a claim to get repairs made. I also emailed my photos Linda H #515919 on 4/21/18
The guys did a great job. Communicated when they would show up and were early to arrive. The job went longer than originally thought and they stayed very late into the night to get done. I plan to use them again in the near term!!
Overall the guys that came out did a good job moving items from my 7 ft POD container into my apartment. Due to the designated location of where PODS can be parked in my apartment complex there was about a 2-3 minute walk from the POD to my apartment. Despite this distance the guys were able to unload everything and help assembl…Read Moree some furniture in under 2 hours (which was great). The only negative I have is that they were late. They did, however, call me ahead of my scheduled service time to notify me how late they would be.
The original arrival time was 8-9, was called the day before move with a time change to 10-10:30, the movers did not show up until 11:30. The movers were not very careful with the furniture on the flooring (first piece brought in scratched the new floor). They did work hard and were very nice. But to be honest I probably would n…Read Moreot use them again.
James and his crew were on time and totally professional and capable. They got right to work and were careful with my furniture. They did a great job and I will be using them again when the remodel is done. Thank y’all for a great job.
Despite some initial difficulties, the crew assigned to us was running well behind the scheduled time slot. The Manager James and his coworker arrives to assist with the loading until his other crew could showed up to cover until his other crew showed up. They all did a great job. J.D.
The crew was outstanding! On time, excellent work, very professional, polite, very careful and skilled, good customer service and kept me in the loop the whole time. On short notice they really came through for us. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing a good, honest and proven crew.
Holland Real Estate Services did an outstanding job of loading our possessions from our house into a rented moving truck. Bobby and Xavier arrived on time and completed the job in the allotted 3 hours. They carefully wrapped our furniture in pads and shrink wrap and made sure that the truck was packed properly. They were friendl…Read Morey and professional throughout. They worked hard and fast but carefully. They packed the truck so well that after 2400 miles of driving everything arrived undamaged without any scratches or breakage. We would use them again and recommend them to others.
I highly recommend these guys and would absolutely use them again. They were on time and started right to work. They were obviously experienced in loading furniture and boxes into a POD. The guys were very hard workers and carefully loaded my belongings. Mr. Holland was very friendly and professional.
I did not have a good experience with this company. First, communication was challenging. We had difficulty understanding Mr. Holland in person and even more difficulty on the phone. Second, he was not respectful of my time. After twice promising to provide a crew between 8 and 9 am as requested, he finally arrived just befo…Read Morere 3 pm. This unreasonable delay caused me a number of problems. I was also not satisfied with the quality of the work. We provided plenty of moving pads and shrink wrap, yet some items loaded into the moving truck were not sufficiently protected and got damaged in transit. I would have given the service two stars if they had showed up on time, but arriving six hours late for an early morning appointment was inexcusable in my view. I would not use this company again.
The gentlemen from Holland Real Estate were on time, professional, and very friendly. They were respectful of our property, but it did take a bit of time to assemble the beds and one of them we ended up having to re-do a bit (the legs were put on incorrectly). But it was great to see such friendly faces during such a stressful d…Read Moreay
Awesome! Awesome! They showed up on time and got straight to work unloading the storage container. They were fast and effective. We had a safe that was heavier than we thought but they still moved it and put it in place and put the top of the China cabinet back up.
Holland Real Estate Services, were EXCELLENT! We will absolutely use them again. In fact we are planning to use them for our next load to finish moving in. They were on time, and were extremely prepared. They treated everything like it was their own. I really cannot say enough about how great they were. On top of all of that the…Read Morey were VERY respectful and polite.
These guys were absolutely amazing! I needed help ASAP after a movedieto an injury during the move I was unable to unload the truck.

James and his crew showed up on time and prepared. They packed all the furniture and some boxes from a 4 bedroom house into Pods in less than 2 hours. They were respectful to my husband and me and of our property and goods. I would use their services again.
Holland RES & I agreed to an unload date (Saturday) and time (9-10am). 2 days before our move, Holland RES called to ask for delay to 10-11am, due to conflicting jobs. I agreed to this delay. 1 day before the move, Holland RES called for a 2nd delay to 11-12. I resisted this 2nd delay, due to projected rain. Holland RES cal…Read Moreled back to reconfirm start time of 10-11am. On the move day, the Holland RES movers arrived at 12:20, 2hr 20min past the original time. Given projected rain, I moved all of the lighter furniture and boxes into 2nd flr apartment, while waiting for movers. Upon Holland RES movers arrival, only heavy furniture remained, which were moved within 1hr, 15min out of the planned 2hrs. Then 15min after the movers departed, heavy rain arrived. The movers were good and worked efficiently and quickly during the time they were present, but I moved many more items and furniture than I planned to do. In the future I would be more precise on when the movers are to arrive and what level of commitment they have to their scheduled time. Also if I had more time I would have removed the filled drawers from a large bureau and chest of drawers, rather than the movers unload these 2 items with filled drawers. It made these pieces much heavier and the stresses on these pieces were evident when these were set down though no visible splintering/splitting appeared.
Very helpful and professional. Always arrived on time. Had good ideas on how to load the Pod well. Did a great job using all the space available. Respectful of items, making sure not to damage wood floor, walls or items being moved. Moved things in a great time frame.
These guys were great! I had a lot of stuff to fit in a small PODS container and they made it work. I know they put in the extra effort to make sure everything fit and I really appreciated it. The movers were very polite and careful not to damage the items they were loading or any walls/door jambs. I highly recommend!
I have to leave a poor rating due to jewelry turning up missing. The jewelry wasn't of much value but integrity is everything. The guys are probably ok to move across town but not across country. My furniture was not packed properly which resulted in a lot of items with stain rubbed off during the ride. I tried to pick a t…Read Moreop rated service but these ratings are obviously skewed. Probably by the owners themselves. Pitiful.
I could write a book. Used once before to unload a pod..they were awesome. Hired again for a local move, damaged most of the furniture, hit the walls, damaged? door frame and worse, found a blood soaked? piece of toilet paper in one of the upstairs bathrooms. Sinks are marble and this was a newly constructed house. Gross, you co…Read Moreuldn't at least flush it? Never again. Hint, if you do use them, get them in the morning when they are rested. I should get a refund for the service for the damaged his crew caused. Mr. Holland could have cared less. Never again.
I've used Holland for two jobs in the last month. He is very personable, and his crews are always friendly, hardworking, and are very respectful of our home and furniture as they loaded/unloaded our PODS containers. Will definitely use them again in the future!
Hired them to pack my 4 bedroom home into 2 storage containers. They did great packing things into the containers carefully and strategically. Nice nice guys and I will definitely recommend them and use them to unload my items once I find a new home. Top notch!
Our crew showed up on time with the right equipment, and were pleasant to work with. They verified all details before starting to load our POD, then quickly got to work. They were careful with our items, and the POD was packed very securely. I would highly recommend the Holland team. In fact, we are using them again next week t…Read Moreo load our final POD for our move.
They arrived on very short notice and worked very hard loading and then unloading. This was our second time we used these fellows! They were very nice and courteous and careful not to damage anything. We would use them again, but hope not to move again for a long time??
The guys that came out to the house were extremely professional, courteous, on-time, and hard workers. Unloaded a PackRat moving container full of stuff. They took great care with our items. I would absolutely use this service from Holland Real Estate Services again. Highly recommended.
I will say that the two guys did a great job of breaking down and wrapping my furniture (with wrap & blankets that I supplied). They were very swift and efficient but towards the last few hours I feel they started moving very slow. I paid for 2 hours and wound up at like 7 hours. I feel that this job would have been more efficie…Read Morent with 4 guys as I can understand they get tired so more help would have probably been the equal of what I paid in half the time.
Cannot say enough good things about Holland Real Estate Services. They were easy to work with when I was running late. They handled our things with great care and respect, and were very friendly (and funny). They were packing wizards. They packed our POD wall to wall and floor to ceiling. I am positive we could not have fit ev…Read Moreerything in without their help. The most helpful thing I could do was stay out of the way. Absolutely worth every penny.
Promptly arrived as scheduled. Very thorough with preparing my furniture for shipping, moving it downstairs and packing the POD container. Holland Real Estate Services came highly recommended and they lived up to that recommendation. Superb service! Thank you!!
Great work! Very thorough. Arrived on time and were flexible as I needed to reschedule due to weather. I had them packing up a POD for a move across the country. They walked through the house and then planned out how to pack it. They managed to fill the entire POD. It took a long time.

They called day before to confirm and morning to advise me when they would arrive. Prompt, very diligent in their work, friendly and hard working. We didn't think all my belongings would fit, but they did with room to spare in truck. Amazed at how they packed the truck. Definitely would use again, if I return to Texas.
Mr Holland was very helpful and professional, he was right there making sure our items were loaded carefully. The pods were packed very efficiently. They were on time, and ready to work, and did an excellent job, I would definitely use them again.
Mr. Holland appeared on time. His crew was very friendly and did a very professional job in a timely manner. I had to keep changing the times and dates I needed help, and the number of helpers to unload heavy fixtures from the delivery truck for my new store. I would not hesitate to seek help from Mr. Holland again.
I got Elroy and Bobby that came over to help me. They were on time. They were also extremely patient and helpful. They even helped me wrap my mirror, TV and a few other delicate items with cellophane wrap. I was really impressed and really appreciated all their help!! Thank you Mr Holland, Elroy and Bobby!!! I will definelty…Read More recommend them to others!
We had two guys fill up a 26' truck from our 4 bedroom home. They took 5 hours, and packed things in there perfectly. Everything got loaded, and due to the load capacity, nothing shifted during a move from Houston to Louisville. They were friendly and professional through the entire process. I highly recommend using them.
Worked perfect. Needed 2 guys to unload. They were there on time, worked hard and I had no problems. My CC was charged the exact amount quoted and the owner of the branch owned in Houston called to confirm everything went well and made sure I was satisfied. A professional and courteous operation.
The movers were very courteous and extremely knowledgeable of how to make everything fit in every corner of our POD. It totally amazed me how they were able to do it and worked diligently for 4.5 hours until it was finished. I would highly recommend them to anyone. They were more than helpful with extra items I found later to pu…Read Moret in the POD also. I will use them again.
Leroy and Bobby worked their tails off loading my large amount of stuff in a "large" POD. It was touch and go as to whether it would all fit, but they did it. I was nervous, but they were kind, even under a bit load of stress. Thanks Leroy and Bobby!
The movers were professional. They called 1 hour prior to arrival. There performance and care of my furniture and materials was exemplary.They work in a systematic and efficient manner. My concern for fragile items and glassware was alleviated .I definitely will use them again.
These guys were simply fantastic. I had upgraded to 3 men because they were climbing 3 flights of steps and I didn't want anyone to get heat stroke in the Houston, TX heat which had a heat index of over 100 that day. They only went a half hour over the 3 hours I paid for, but that was my fault. I had to have them bring back d…Read Moreown some boxes to the POD I changed my mind about having in the apartment and were going to storage. I will be using them again- NO DOUBT!
This is a mixed review. I hired Holland Real Estate Srvice for 2 jobs. Friday was to move my 10x30 storage and Saturday morning was to move my 800 sq ft apt. 1. They were on time. 2. They were prepared. 3. So far it seems they were respectful of my property. 4. I would use them only if I can pick the crew. I believe …Read Morethings went great on the first job but the 2nd job was stretched out time wise. I have moved quite a bit over my life and know how it works. I made sure I had water and gatorade and food for lunch/dinner. I thought I treated them respectfully. Overview: I helped load from storage, which evidently kept the men moving. I say that because Friday went great. Saturday, was a completely different story. It took the same amount of time to just load the apartment as it did for the first job from storage (load, drive across town, and unload). I could not help load the 2nd job as I was in the apartment. While one loaded the truck, one should have been moving the items, however, that wasn't happening. The staging sight just kept getting fuller. I believe if I had been able to load from the staging sight to the truck, it would have kept moving. I did tip them as they had done a great job on Friday and there was one that worked exceptionally hard both days. I just hope they all received their tip as I gave it all to just one of them.
Outstanding workers who knew what they were doing, brought the right tools and most importantly a super attitude. A pleasure to have in my home. I would definitely use them again. Thanks again for having them at my home early and ready especially given this was same day service. Well Done!
Holland Real Estate Services did an excellent job, worked hard , and were very careful in how they handled my things. They were late, but they called and kept me in the loop on when they would arrive. I would definitely use them again.
Workers spent tome talking on a phone. In the team of 4 only 1 was Ok. About 50% of time was wasted. Disappointed on service. Packing and loading was poor.Show Response

Mr. Holland and his team moved us out of two storage units, and loaded everything onto a 28' trailer that was parked about 50 or so yards away.

Awesome guys. They were punctual, polite, super careful, and worked non stop like magicians to pack our POD top to bottom, front to back - amazing! I would hire these guys again in a heartbeat. Do not hesitate to hire this company, you will not be disappointEd.
I hired them to do furniture rearrangement in my two story loft. They were scheduled to arrive between 9-12 but were late because the first job of the day ran long. They did call to keep me informed which was appreciated. They did not arrive until 3 - in my case that was ok but that is quite late. That being said, the guys w…Read Moreere great and they worked hard. There was a difficult piece to move and they took great care to get it done. They were fast and thorough. Yes I would use them again though we would have a conversation about the time. The price was reasonable and the process of hiring through Hire-a-Helper was very easy.
Leroy and Bobby called before showing up. They arrived on time and got right to work. I was very please with the job they did. Both guys were professional yet friendly. If i needed a moving service again this would be my first pick.
Patient, friendly and competent. They showed up on time and worked the entire time. They loaded my 3 br house into two pods in 8 hours. I had one flight of stairs and a lot of heavy items.

They were accommodating to our schedule - in changing it after we had already scheduled it online which was great. They also brought their own equipment for moving as well.

Perhaps that is the case with all movers -- since the job is not a flat rate to unload the entire truck but instead by the hour which then is more difficult to ascertain how long should unloading a truck really take to complete.

Leroy and Bobby were a great team and did a fabulous job for us. They showed up at the time requested.

The team was incredibly professional and efficient. Though it was a short move from my garage apartment to a pod on the street, it was the best experience I've had with a moving company. I planned for two hours, but only needed one. If I ever need a mover in Houston again, they will be the first I contact.
Holland Real Estate Services did a great job; specifically: - Leroy and Bobby arrived on time and worked hard for a full 3 hours. - They managed to carefully pack an entire house into 1 POD container.

This went above and beyond my expectations! I would definitely use Holland Real Estate Services and especially recommend Leroy and Bobby.
The crew from Holland moving did a great job. They arrived on time and worked quickly but carefully. Nothing was damaged. They were polite and tried to unload everything just where we wanted. I would recommend them if you need loading or unloading help.
Great job, awesome crew. They were able to come earlier to accommodate my plans. Got all of my stuff moved in within an 1 hour and 30 minutes. I would certainly use them again if I ever need to move my things. I just recently located from Michigan.
I was making a cross country move and they were told that. I had packed everything securely. I had dozens of blankets waiting on the truck to protect my furniture. Things were packed without protection and not wrapped. Heavy boxes on top of fragile. I have thousands of dollars in damages. A statute broke in half, lamps broke. Sh…Read Moreades tore up, gouges, scratches and wood shredded on every exposed piece of wood. Holes in the furniture upholstery. Bike gears tore up. Broken leg in night stand, broken table leg. I have thousands of dollars in damages. In addition they were suppose to take apart a full wall book case. After 45 min they said it was glued together and wasn't going to get moved. I found all the seams to take it apart! It was not glued!! Just needed to follow the screws to get the sections apart. I had to call someone else in to help me get the bookcase apart so I wasn't able to monitor the packing of the truck. One of the movers showed up over weight with some foot problem and could hardly walk on his feet. I ended up having to carry furniture out to get it loaded because he was so slow and almost of no value! They movers promised they we're going to have everything protected. There were no blankets on the wood bookcase. Shelves, wood dining table, wood dining chairs. The bookcase shelves were found strewn all over the bottom of the truck with nothing to protect them! One night stand was turned upside down and it goes on and on! I can't wait to see how this is going to get settled!
We used Holland service to pack two PODS to move from Texas to Maryland. We stored the PODS for about two months. A Week ago we got our PODS delivered to our new home. To our horror, we found that the packers placed metal items from the garage next to our furniture which caused lots of damage to the furniture. There are cuts in …Read Morea leather couch, large gouge in our oak dinning room table, counter stools rubbed and cut, and more items were damaged due to the loose packing and placement. They said they knew how to pack the PODS and would not leave spaces between items. When unpacking we found that was not the case there were large spaces that allowed items to shift and get damaged. We found that they had packed furniture next to ladders and other metal objects. We have large cuts and gouges on many pieces of our furniture. They said they knew how to pack a POD. To our horror our leather couch was packed next to a metal object which left large cuts, our dinning room table has a large gouge from rubbing against a ladder, other wood furniture pieced that were placed next to garage items were damaged or broken. There were large areas between items that also allowed for shifting rubbing and damage. We have used pods before, packed it ourselves and nothing was damaged during the move. If these men were professionals then they should have known better.
We had some logistical challenges with our move and the team at Holland was WONDERFUL in accommodating us! They were prompt, fast, courteous and professional. I would highly recommend them if you have a move in the Houston, TX area.
The communication was very poor. Not only did I have to contact them to arrange all the details (vs. them reaching out to me), the owner is very difficult to hear/understand (on the phone and in person). The day before the job (when I hadn't heard from them and I had to call), I was told that they were overbooked and hoping i…Read Moref I could move my job to later in the afternoon or the following day (which was not possible). I was then told that they would be there at 11am and he would call me by 9am to confirm. By 10am and no call, I called him. He kept pushing back the time and then they finally arrived 4 hours late. Because they were so late, we had to cancel and reschedule the pick-up of our PODS - which meant having the PODS sit out in the hot sun for FIVE EXTRA DAYS. When they arrived, I was told that one or more of the workers had not had a background check and I had to call HireAHelper to waive the background check. Up against a wall as we needed to get things moved, I had to waive - no other choice. We were promised 4 men. Only one was capable (and he was awesome). The owner hardly did anything (maybe 5% of the move) and did not supervise either as later we found out that a whole room's worth of belongings didn't make it into the PODS. The other two were okay, but clearly were not engaged or experienced as furniture left the house unwrapped and many things I saw were dropped on the sidewalk or street. Because we did not have 4 able-bodied helpers, we had to go 3.5 hours over (which meant more money). We finally let them go at 9:15pm and my husband had to spent another 3 hours that evening and 2 hours the next morning, unloading and repacking the PODS to make sure all of our belongings got moved - if he had not done this, we would have had to leave a lot of furniture behind. In the end, we chose Holland Real Estate Services because of their great reviews online. However, our experience with them probably happened because they got overbooked, didn't want to turn down any jobs, etc. so they gave priority to those moves that were booked directly with them and left the inexperienced people for us. We will keep using HireAHelper in the future as their specific service is fantastic. Very responsive and helpful.
Leroy and Bobby did a great job and handled our furniture carefully and respectfully, even at the end of a long day of work! They arrived late, due in part to a confusion over our address, but worked steadily and efficiently after they arrived. We recommend them as movers.
I think they did an ok job overall, but when I asked them to do things in a specific way because of the quality of the items to be moved, I was ignored and the items did not get the attention to detail they deserved. If moving just whatever items, they are great. For items if value or fine artwork, no. I would recommend them for…Read More anything else. I am in the business of moving and delivering fine works of art and high end furniture. So I will not be using them again. I am however grateful for the help that they offered when I was in a bind and needed muscle. Attention to detail, following instruction, and being precise are necessary, for me to give a recommendation and they did not fill that requirement.
The crew was hard working and performed with only a little shifting of the furniture at the delivery point. The young man who packed the truck did well. He will get better as he gets older. Only one broken table which I will repair.
Mr. Holland's crew did a great job. The crew of four showed up 30 minutes late (otherwise I would have given them 5 stars), but when they arrived I could tell they were experienced.

Bobby and Leroy from Holland Real Estate Services did a great job! They arrived on time, were courteous and professional, and treated our belongings and new home with care.

James and his crew were great. They arrived prepared and were clean, polite, and very hard working. As the day moved forward James kept things on track and had each task planned out as the crew arranged every piece efficiently in the Pod. As the heat became pretty tough later in the day the workers continued to take on every new…Read More task with as much enthusiasm as the first. These guys moved all of our things as if they were all made of glass, checking and wrapping each one. They really blew me away, I would use them again and definitely recommend them to anyone.
First of all the movers from hire a helper showed up, and they showed up on time. I had some movers scheduled for the day before but they were a no show. The guys were all very conscientious and they handled my belongings with care. They worked quickly and efficiently. I was very happy with them and I would certainly rec…Read Moreommend them.
This is the second time I have relied on Holland Real Estate Services--the first was for a typical move, while the second was part of flood recovery efforts, which are even more stressful and chaotic. No matter the situation, Mr. Holland and his crew are always on time, always kind, and they work hard. I cannot recommend them en…Read Moreough.
The movers were at the location before I arrived and patiently waited. One of the movers appeared injured and moved very slowly, the other was fit and quick. I was a little concerned as the injured gentleman seemed to have a difficult time breathing but was ok. They were flexible and able to work longer and did everything I a…Read Moresked of them. Overall they did a great job.
I can't thank James enough. I messed up and scheduled the wrong date and didn't catch it until the day before I really needed them. I called James in a panic and he was able to come the next day! This was critical since I had scheduled the POD pick up for the day after the move. Anyway - once again, they were on time, moved …Read Morethe stuff quickly with not incident. I would definitely recommend them and will use them again, if needed. Thanks James and Crew!
Not your typical laborers. In 1 word, Professional! Easy to schedule, arrived on time, were thorough, professional gentlemen. Unpacked the moving truck and placed items as if the items belonged to them. No mishandling of goods. Will definitely how them again and recommend them often.
I used holland real estate services for the second time and I'm so glad I did. They arrived earlier than I had scheduled at my request and they finished the whole loading job in an hour and a half! None of the furniture was damaged. Great guys!
while James and crew were on time, friendly and worked hard, we did have problems. I thought everything was done well until we unpacked. We then realized that they had done the following: 1. put things against most of the wooden furniture that scratched and gouged for the whole 3 day drive. There is not a piece of furnitur…Read Moree left that was not affected. 2. Put heavy boxes at the top rather than the bottom 3. plainly disregarded the clearly marked fragile boxes. Again I will say that it looked like they were doing a good job while they were loading. If there had been suggestions made, we would have gladly followed them. If we needed to get some padding or blankets, we could have simply opened some of the boxes there. It is my expectation that professionals use their expertise to prevent these sorts of avoidable mistakes. So while they were nice guys, I would not use them again.
I had a three-man team for loading and a two-man team for unloading. Each time they showed up on time and worked very hard. They were very careful with my furniture. I had rented a Pack Rat container and they packed it so well there was no shift. I had no damage. We were moving the contents of a large house and what I appre…Read Moreciated most was their advice on how much the container would hold so that I could prioritize what was essential to move now and what could be done later.
I was very pleased with the 2 young men who helped, along with the owner. It is very refreshing to see the "Big Man" roll up his sleeves and work just as much as his employees. Very prompt, and well prepared, this was a big plus for us as this move is time orchestrated. Definitely recommend this service. I will be using this se…Read Morervice again in a couple of days to help load our second POD. Thank You!!!!!
So they were nice enough. However they dropped a few things of mine and chipped my previously blemish-free furniture and did not seem terribly apologetic about it. Also they did not wrap up the furniture as I expected. I have definitely had better service for a similar price
Two men arrived early, ready to go. Were knowledgeable about packing a POD, and protected our things. Worked hard, and happily added an extra hour to finish the job. Very personable, friendly, and helpful. One had a weak knee, but it didn't slow him down much. We'd use them again. Thanks.
The movers and the owner of the company were extremely courteous and professional. The movers took extra care to not damage the items and were able to fit an entire 2 bedroom home into a 10x10 storage container. I will definitely refer them to friends and family in the future.
James came with Bobby and Josh and they all were professional courteous and a delight to have work for us. They unloaded our container in record time and made sure we knew of every problem they found in the container prior to moving any damaged item. I would use them again for any move we might make in the future and highly re…Read Morecommend them to anyone who may need their services.
Two employees, working for Holland Real Estate Services, arrived at my home at the agreed upon time. They were prepared to move some heavy items and worked very hard. They treated my property as if it were their own. I would definitely use this company again based on these two employees.
The most convenient thing about these movers is that they answer your phone call! I was able to call them on the day of the job - they answered- and showed up early! They got everything done in exactly the time they predicted and had a good sense of humor. I will use them again whenever I move around Houston.
I've never used a moving company before until Holland Real Estate Services. The workers were very personable and worked efficiently. I've heard horror stories regarding movers but I must say these guys put my mind at ease, and I have no problem recommending them to anyone.
Bobby & Leroy were great! They called in advance to let me know they were on their way, they arrived on time, and they worked continuously but with care. Mr Holland called a couple of days in advance to confirm everything, and he gave me a list of supplies I needed to have on hand. The job went smoothly and eithout any hiccups.
Leroy & Bobby were awesome. Moved furniture and boxes from 3rd floor apartment using stairs and loaded in a 6×12 trailer. Didn't think it would all fit, but they did it!!!!! Very professional and friendly!!! Will use Holland Real Estate services again if needed....
This was my second time using movers help. The first time I used movers help was one day before using this company. I had one company pack the truck up and when I got to Tx I had this company unload. The differences I notice, were. This company used there hands to move items around. I talked to, well I guess, "their boss" who ha…Read Moreppen to be standing and watching/talking while they moved boxes. I spoke with the "boss" and stated the guys could save there backs with some lifting straps for assistance. The first movers used the straps over their shoulders and moved the matress,dresser, and desk like it was a feather. These poor guys had there bare hands. The "boss" stated they were strong, I don't care how strong you are, it still not good on the back/hands. The movers also did not use the dolly much when moving the boxes and bins. The first movers I used, stacked boxes and bins up on the dolly. Instead of moving a box one by one they moved several at a time. When I noticed this one was going on, I immediately jumped on and started moving boxes since I was on a 2 hour window. I also had a desk that if needed to be could be taken apart and put back together. The first movers did not have to do this bc of the angle they picked the desk up with the shoulder straps. The "boss" approached me and said the desk would have to be taken apart and he would rather "I" do it so I would not be charged extra money. He tried to convince me several times to leave the desk in the hallway so that I could take it apart and move it in the room myself. I told him that I specially put in the instructions about the size of the desk and that it may have to be taken apart. I also stated to him that he should have not taken the assignment if he didn't think he could get the job done. All in all one of the young movers ran to the truck and grabbed his tools. After 20 mins and a lil of my help. The desk was taken apart and put back together in the room it was suppose to go into. The movers themselves were EXCELLENT.! I just hate that the "boss" did not want to invest in some better equipment/ 15 dollar straps to help these guys out when moving. The "boss" was more in the way and a chatter box while we were hustling moving boxes. He didn't pick one thing up or move a finger, he was more in the way and could have stayed in the car. Would I use this company again? Yes, but the "boss" needs to stay out the way and let these guys do their job.
James Holland and crew did a great job unloading and placing quite a few large furniture items for me that were not only heavy they had glass doors and shelves. When I called to confirm my unloading time for Monday, James asked me if I wanted them to come earlier? Are you kidding me, he volunteered to come over on Sunday morning…Read More for no additional cost to me!? I recommend these guys highly!
These guys are FABULOUS! Mr. Holland is organized and professional, and his workers are the same. They are polite, clean, experienced and personable. They took great care in packing our truck, and I feel very confident with the packing job they did. I wish I could take them with me to unload on the other end.
Leroy and Bobby (hope that's his name) did a fantastic job unloading our 22' moving truck! They were on time and wasted no time getting right to work. They were very professional and took great care in dealing with our belongings. Definitely recommend this company!
Great workers! Definitely would recommend and use them for my next job. BJ and Alonzo were terrific! Unknowingly, they had a to execute my job and one earlier that morning since they weren't informed by their supervisor. First class to BJ and Alonzo once more, their supervisor owes them more than a pat on the back!!
I was having repairs done & needed all my belongings to be removed. I rented a pod & needed all my belongings packed & moved to it. I was really dreading this & thinking it couldn't be done but they amazed me & made it a pleasant experience. I just sat back & let them do their work.They were on time, very courteous, worked reall…Read Morey hard, respectful of my property & goods. I willl always use them. Plan on using them to move my items back in.
Broke a power cord for the refrigerator and a clip the the drawer and didn't offer to replace. Also, workers stood around too much and I had to take boxes out on my own. Overcharged for his service by 45 minutes and then asked for a tip!
They showed up early, were very professional. Worked dligently. No marks left on any walls even carrying a ten foot sofa up a flight of stairs with one 90 degree turn at a landing. Finished early, very courteous. Would strongly recommend them to anyone!
They did a very good job. The movers were on time and were flexible to a change in schedule. They were very proffesional and know what they're doing. Mr. Holland communicates with you very well with regards to scheduling. Highly recommeded!!
These guys were great! They showed up at 8:56 AM for a 9 o'clock job, and were ready to roll. If anything, they were waiting for us to get our act together after a long week of moving. They really saved us that day and would certainly use them again!
James, Bobby, and LeRoy did a great job. They hit the job running...were on time and did a wonderful job of packing the PackRat tight and safe. Also, they were so friendly and helpful with every question. If you want a Stress free packing crew...Call Holland !
First of all , the team of guys is great at Holland. They have a great upbeat attitude and are very personable. They were also very fast and efficient at loading everything. They were so fast that they didn't wrap some of our furniture. They left the fitted sheet on the tempurpedic mattress($5000) and didn't put anything els…Read Moree on it. When I noticed it I asked them to wrap it and they said "no problem". I walked away to do something else and assumed they wrapped it and I didn't check it until after they left. When I did, I found it was not wrapped . Along with other items like my leather chair. I spent about an hour with two friends rearranging it to fix it. I love the guys but i think they should have slowed down and paid a little more attention to that( especially since we had already bought the mattress and couch covers at home depot and handed to them at the start of the job, but they said they didn't need them. )
They took 2 extra hrs as they didn't want to use elevator and loaded truck to use garage, so to unload pod to load truck to then unload truck .. They worked my bill I think, as they had no other clients the day I moved... But they were careful as heck and for that I'm appreciative!!Show Response
michele,if the men had to walk that distance it would have cost you more time. we shorten the time and distance of travel by using a pickup truck to carry more items to your floor at a time.we had your interest at heart. thank you! JAMES A. HOLLAND,OWNER

I had two men to help load a U-Haul truck. They arrived 10 minutes early and were ready to go to work. They did not bring equipment such as hand trucks or furniture dollies as was advertised, but I had those so it didn't matter. They worked hard for four straight hours without a break. They were knowledgeable -- more so in f…Read Moreact than many "professional" movers I have had over the years. They did a skillful job of loading the truck. I would use them again and highly recommend them.
I would highly recommend Holland! They were very professional and extremely knowledgeable about the most efficient way to pack our truck. So much so that we ended up with extra space. They're an extremely good company and a pleasure to work with.
Bobby and Albert called ahead of their scheduled time to say they would be 10 min delayed. They then showed up at that time. Both gentlemen are very professional. I could tell they were pros as they didn't even touch a wall or ding the furniture while moving out of the top floor. Excellent work!
Wow! I hoped all those positive reviews were true. They ARE! James Holland and his crew were wonderful!! I hired 3 workers for 4 hours. They worked their tails off and fit so much more than I could have hoped into our PackRat Containers. Their efficiency and know-how saved us hundreds of dollars on getting either another c…Read Moreontainer or having to rent a U-haul for extra stuff. Thank you, Mr. Holland! I highly recommend!
On time with the appropriate pre loading confirmation phone call to confirm time of arrival for loading. Fully prepared, respectful of the items being loaded, and superior spacial relationship in fully loading the truck for even balance. Would most certainly use them again.
Mr. Holland called and confirmed the job, called the evening before, showed up on time with Bobby and Leroy, and everyone was professional and courteous. They wrapped all the furnishings using my blankets and film then loaded the containers carefully and tight. Shifting should not be a problem during the move and storage. Plan t…Read Morehe time you feel the job should take and then add approximately 50% more. If you want your furniture handled carefully and wrapped, it's tedious work and takes longer than you expect. I think the job went well but the proof will be in 5 months when we have the containers unloaded into our new home.
Hiring Holland Real Estate Services was one of the best decisions we made during our recent move. Not only were they on time, they were early. They were professional, polite, and worked hard from the time they got to our home until the job was done. I have already hired them twice and plan to hire them once more to finish up th…Read Moree move.
I will start with this is my fourth time to book Mr. Holland thru Hire a Helper - each time they are early, finish ahead of schedule, smile throughout the time they are working and I will use again and again. I would give them 6 stars if I could! : )
Everything was great except at my new apartment (Uhaul needing unloading) the owner surprised me with paper work that stated he charges 10$ extra an hour for 3rd floor and above. (I was on the third floor so 20$ extra) At this point I agreed to the extra charge because I needed my things moved in. He stated that hirehelper didn'…Read Moret have a place to put this extra charge information. Other than that they where quick.Show Response

I highly recommend Holland Real Estate Services. James' communications with me to confirm the engagement was excellent. His team was right on time. They worked really hard as I had already moved the easy stuff. Their work included moving a large heavy sectional sleeper sofa upstairs, which they handled with no problem.

We couldn't be happier with the service provided. They were punctual, polite, professional, & efficient- they made moving day so much less stressful. We'd definitely use them again & definitely recommend them to anyone needing help moving! Great price and great workers.
The crew arrived on time and had some very few tools for the job. My wife was put in the place of supervising their work and she reports that they were very lackadaisical, slow, and responsive only when she made herself present and attentive. In other words, they were milking the job for extra hours. This is, I suspect, the main…Read More mode of operations of these crews. Work up to the deadline, then charge for overtime. Nice for them. We clients get screwed in the end. There was very little breakage in the load but there was some questionable packing of extremely heavy boxes at the very top of a pile, making the unloading process hazardous and vexing. I had fully intended to follow up on our final move with the same treatment but for many reasons, this service being a part, I will not engage hire-a-helper again in my lifetime. I am going to opt for PODS this next time around.
The service was ok. Mr. Holland def took time to update and follow up with me regarding the movers arrival time. I was disappointed with how long it took to complete the move. I hired three men for 2 hours. It ended up taking 5 hours for a one bedroom apt. Granted the layout of the complex made the move a little more difficult. …Read MoreHowever, if the team would have used additional dollies etc, the move would have gone quicker
Leroy and Adrian were awesome. They called and let me know their arrival time. They arrived EARLY and were ready to go. They moved me in the amount of time I requested and were very professional. I will definitely use them again.
I was nervous about this project since I've never hired help before. But Bobby and Leroy were great. They were on time and gave me about a 20 minute notice of when the 3 hours was going to be up. They stayed focused on the job and packed the PackRat container very efficiently. Yep, I'd hire them again in a heartbeat.
The guys did a great job. They were available to help us unload the truck even though we called at the very last minute. They arrived on-time and did a great job unloading.

I had some expensive heavy pieces of furniture that were damaged, broken, and scraped.

I do not know the full extent of the damage. The job took 9.5 hours to move 2 bedrooms, dining room, and office. They did not complete the move of all items. Very devastating and disappointing.
They did a great job!!!! I will definitely use them again when I move.

Not only are the very good at their craft, they will also go the extra mile to help you.

As a matter of fact they volunteered to help us out and this was on a Sunday. With the workers there, we were able to unload and put in storage unit an almost full 17' truck in about 1.5 hours including the time it took to get to the unit 8 miles away. I would highly recommend this company for any type of move, whether it be a full move or just to assist in packing a pod. We will certainly be calling them when we are ready to unload the pod at our new facility and will use them for any move we do that is possible. DEFINITELY GIVE THEM A CALL!
They were on time and professional. Packed efficiently. Everything survived except my wood desk has several large and deep scrapes (either from being dropped or from the hand truck), and the base of a lamp broke. Everything else was in good condition after the 1500 mile move.
Excellent service- great Called me 3x prior to coming to ensure all was ready Totally prepared for the job Worked very hard and professionally Extremely respectful of my property I would use them anytime I had a need. It was simply a great experience with very professional and very kind men.
Top notch crew. On time and very careful with moving my goods into the POD. These guys have done this before and arrived with the tools they needed. Very professional and hard working guys. I would tell anyone to use their services
They have moved me two times before. This time they did damage the walls on my new home. I called twice with an estimate for the repair only 100 bucks but have not gotten a return call. They were on time and prepared for the job. They did finish in the allotted time and did not cause any major damage. I am just a little disappoi…Read Morented in the handling of the damage. All in all based on the price and it was only 100 in damage I am not going to complain that much.
They showed up on time, prepared to work, worked hard, were respectful and courteous, and despite carrying a significant quantity of heavy furniture and boxes, did very little incidental damage. The price was reasonable and I would have no qualms with using them again.
The two gentlemen that arrived at my house were ahead of schedule, which was a welcome change for the day. They took particular attention to plan out what they were going to do before lifting anything by scouting the work area and the furniture they were going to move for me. Then they reorganized the things I already loaded i…Read Morento my moving container so that it was better than I had done and made the loading of the heavy things better.

I hired 2 movers for 2 hours to unload a 26ft moving truck. The workers showed up 15 mins early and completed the job with no problems. They folded moving blankets during the last 5-10 mins. Overall, good experience and would use Holland Real Estate Services again.
They were very courteous and prompt all three days they helped me move. They worked hard and took no breaks while unloading my crates. They did have difficulty with some of my heavier furniture and their dolly was old and worn out. Fortunately my son was here to help.
I think they took entirely too much time. It was originally scheduled for 2 hours. I anticipated maybe 4 hours. But no way did I expect it would take 9 hours. I think they start taking their time knowing they were going to get paid $125/hour. I don't feel at all they took care of my furniture once they start loading it up in the…Read More storage room. Several times I noticed their feet, with their shoes on, standing in the middle of my both of my couches trying to load other areas of the storage room. Both of my couches were over $2,000 dollars and we don't even let the kids stand on them. The main guy over them took apart all kind of furniture and I have know idea which screws go to which furniture. He just put them all in one ziploc bag. I have dealt with movers all my life and have worked for Uhaul in past. The is by far the poorest service I have ever received. I have already investigated another moving company to move me into my new home.
They were just ok.

The movers showed up twenty minutes late. They were very slow. They went over four hours which should not have occurred. I only had one queen bedroom set and a daybed. The rest was just normal furnishing for a home. They scratched up my walls badly by moving the bedroom dresser. They took the plastic off my couch causing my c…Read Moreushions to be soaked because of the leak in the truck. To top it off they broke my office chair and dirtied the back of my couch. I would never recommend this company. Very disappointed!!!!
First the good stuff: They were on-time, friendly, courteous, and hard working. Now the not-so-good stuff: They would pack non-boxed materials stacked and/or touching each other. For example, a wooden chair would be stacked/touching another wooden chair. To me, this is basic packing rule: NEVER have items (ESPECIALLY WOOD…Read MoreEN) stacked or touching each other. I had plenty of towels available to remedy any wood-on-wood infraction. The stuff in the module will most definitely shift, so I'm very worried about opening the container this week!
I was very concerned about moving a family heirloom into a U-Haul and expressed that concern to Mr. Holland. He was do attentive to the move and his staff were veterans. They listened to my concerns about the areas that protruded and could be easily damaged. They made me feel at ease. Before we got started we realized I…Read More need to have purchased the shrink wrap. In hindsight that was the agreement. When I offered to omit the shrink wrap they insisted we should have it so we took a trip to the uhaul store to buy it. We stayed within our two hour minimum, I tipped them $30 and had and uneventful trip of 7 hours in a bouncy uhaul trailer. I couldn't be more pleased!
Holland Real Estate Services did an outstanding job on our move. They were scheduled to come by first thing in the morning, but I had a delay in closing on the new house. They patiently waited and then responded as soon as I was ready. They loaded my furniture quickly and efficiently, taking great care with my antiques. They …Read Moreunloaded at the new house, paying attention to my requests. The team was very courteous and professional. I would be glad to use them again.
The two gentlemen who came to load my POD were very professional, energetic, eficient, sensitive to my needs, respectful, cared for my boxes and furniture, always asking if I needed anything else to go into the POD. They worked very hard and were on time, in fact, early, but that was OK. I would certainly use them again. They…Read More were like my friends. Thank you.
They arrived on time. Called a couple days ahead to confirm and then on the day of to let us know they were on their way. They didn't have to be directed to keep them on schedule and they knew exactly what they were doing and did a fantastic job. They also let us know when they were getting close to the 2 hours being up so th…Read Moreat my husband and I could decide whether we wanted them for another hour. I would highly recommend them to anyone.
They were incredibly flexible, let me call them when my POD arrived at my apartment and were there within an hour to unload. They worked hard and fast, they were careful with my things, and they were very nice. I would definitely recommend.
The move was good, but broke a leg on my TV stand and said it was already broken before they moved it. Wasn't worth much to do a claim but disappointed that they did not take the responsibility.Show Response
DEAR MR. TRAN: YOU WERE NOTIFIED OF THE TABLE LEG IN ADVANCE BEFORE REMOVAL. MAYBE YOU FORGOT THE NOTIFICATION YOU SIGNED.WE STILL THANK YOU!FOR YOUR BUSINESS. SIGN: JAMES A. HOLLAND,OWNER

These guys were great helping to unload the truck. They were very professional and careful with my belongings. They worked efficiently and quickly; as a result, they finished in record time and even helped us load things into our personal vehicles. In addition, we received a confirmation call the day before the scheduled job …Read Moreand a call the morning of just to let us know they were on their way.
The guys arrived on time and were good at direction. They continued with their work quietly and were very careful with everything. I can certainly recommend the use of Holland Services, they were a great help and finished in just 2 hours!!!!
Holland movers did a great job loading and unloading my furniture in a timely manner . They were professional and friendly and I would recommend them. Instead of using the required 2 guys they used 3 for the same price and finished my job in less than 2 hours.
Thank you HireAHelper for coordinating help to unload my moving truck. The guys with Holland Realestate Services did a great job. They were on time, professional, polite, and completed the job on time. I was thankful to have them help me on this move and would definitly recommend them to others.
I needed help moving furniture and things into a storage facility and called HireAHelper. They sent me to Holland Real Estate Service who sent out 2 highly qualified men. These 2 men did everything required; they did it with a smile on their faces; and they did it right. They were VERY professional. Not only would I refer th…Read Moreem to my friends, but I would gladly use them again should the need arise.
Workers arrived at the job early and loaded the goods onto the truck. In the process, 2 pieces of furniture were loaded onto the truck with their finished side placed on the bottom of the truck without a furniture pad to protect the wood and finish. As a result the 2 pieces of furniture are damaged. Also, 2 lamps were broken.…Read More The loading took 8.5 hours rather than the 3 proposed, and there was an additional hourly charge that hadn't been mentioned during the initial proposal. And finally, 2 boxes containing valuables did not arrive at the final destination. Therefore, I do not and cannot recommend using the services of Holland Realestate.
Holland Estate Services was just the team I needed. Thanks HireAHelper! True professionals that arrived in a timely fashion and went straight to work. I appreciated James' tips and guidance on making all my property fit neatly into my Pod for transport to the east coast. Hoping to find the same type of team upon my arriva…Read Morel in new location. Thanks loads!!
They started out by being 1 1/2 hour late. They are Very courteous workers. The helpers did not protect furniture on dollies when they loaded and unloaded which concerned us but since our things were not new a little nick cover up polish fixed everything. Nothing was broken or damaged. The price was right for our move.They s…Read Moretayed right on time. They are competitive and equal to "Three Men Mover's" we have used in the past.
They arrived ontime and were prepared for the job. My original estimate was off on the amount of time I needed but they were very dilligent during the moving process. Nothing was broken or damaged. This is the second time that I have used this mover and will definately use them again.
Before my moving day, I had several phone conversations with Mr. Holland reviewing my needs and details of my big day. This was extremely helpful as the details of the move changed a few times. Staff were well-prepared, friendly and got right to work upon arrival. They took great care in moving my valuables; they rebundled my…Read More boxes if they identified potential accidents. My movein was equally as professional and swift--apartment was on the third floor. My bed was set up for me and heavier boxes were moved a few times until I was certain of their new location. I would suggest, however, that there be a guide to approximate needs of staff and hours as it relates to major move items. I had two men and three hours, which based on previous reviews, I thought was too much. It ended up being four and a quarter hours. Also, there was an upcharge of $10/hr for the time the movers spend on floors higher than the first. Other than that, I believed the movers treated my belongings as if they were my own and I am completely satisfied.
They were a little slow but very careful with our stuff. The unloaders on the other end pointed out things that should or could have been covered with the extra blankets but we had no damage. Very polite and hardworking. I would recommend them and use them again.
Very good job for the money! They delivered my furniture to multiple locations which elliminated my need to move things to another house for a garage sale the following day...i am very greatful! They were not as fast as some big moving companies, but they got the job done well!
These guys were remarkable! A job well done very professionally with dedication to getting the job done in a timely manner. They showed up on time and work diligently until the job was complete. Even though they were hard at work moving furniture laughter filled the home helping to remove our mind from the bitter sweetness of…Read More the move. Thanks! I recommend using Holland moving service... excellent service -Devin and CeCe, Cypress, TX
They were good. They came to my place without any delay. They carefully carried everything. I have requested 2 hours but all job were done before 2 hours. Then, in remaining time, they helped me to assemble the bed without additional charge even though I didn't request this job originally. I want to ask them the job for next …Read Moremoving, too.
There were several things broken due to a marginal pack. For some reason, some lamps were taken out of boxes and placed in truck bare. They were broken up in the 2400 mile move. I lost some rare china due to a bad pack. The movers showed up 1 hour early and I was not ready for them. This caused me some trouble as I had to go get…Read More the rental truck while they moved things without me. Some of the things they moved I did not want moved. I should have had them wait in their car until I was ready at no cose to me. I lost control of this loading. Overall, they tried to be helpful and I appreciate that. 1 or 2 of the movers tended to talk too much and not work enough. I have used this crew twice before, so I was a little disappointed. One of the crew was rude to me. One of the crew was a young, very hard worker. They hooked up my trailer to the truck and I very much appreciate that; but it was done wrong (unsafely) and I had a problem with the load in Dallas. Jim White
The Holland personnel arrived on time and were very professional. The four man crew unloaded one U-Pack Trailer that was completely full, top to bottom and front to back, in 100+ degree weather in four hours. Two of the crew came back and unloaded a second trailer packed about 18 feet and moved around some furniture in the…Read More house in two hours. The crew didn't damage anything. Hopefully, we won't be moving anytime soon but, if we do, we will call Holland to do the loading and unloading.
Mr. Holland called right after I booked the job to get the details of time and place, then called the night before to confirm again, time and place. Bobby and Marcus, the 2 men Mr. Holland assigned to our job were on site 5 minutes before the designated time and were ready to work. Even though the temperature was rising, they …Read Moredidn't slow down one bit. Bobby and Marcus were very courteous and professional.
I felt guilty watching these guys work in 100-degree heat, carrying loads up and down three flights of stairs. The whole move took longer than expected as a result, but the additional fees I incurred were fair (and fully disclosed in advance). The crew was exceedingly friendly, and they figured out how to move my exercise machin…Read Moreery without removing the door from its hinges (as an earlier moving crew had done). On the whole, I was very pleased.
Specificly request them to remove paint and stain containers - charged extra for this service (enviormental) - they change date for service 3 times - then when they did come - refused to remove the paint - - - When speaking with James Holland it seems as if he did not remeber any converstation or direction towards moving the pai…Read Morent - anyway - the work that they did do was satisfacter but would suggest that furture customers have a complete written contract prior to service
We moved from Minnesota to Houston. Had driven 2 days almost straight through and were exhausted. We arrived at our new home, the movers were actually waiting for us! They worked diligently for 4 hours unloading our 26' truck and I sat with my feet in my new pool!
The 2 movers communicated very effectively when they were in transit. They were very punctual and it was very impressive how they loaded the truck. They worked very hard and did an amazing job. They worked quickly and were friendly, didn't waste time, and still professional. It was the first time I ever hired someone to move…Read More my belongings and they were entirely respectful.
Holland had very courteous workers who were very careful with all my furniture. They also ask me to check everything when they were finished. Not one of my belongings moved when we transported them. I would recommend them to anyone. Mary Harrison
We were SO pleased with the work Holland Real Estate Services did for us. We had a full moving truck to unload in Houston's July heat, and they did a superb job. They were courteous, and thoughtful (they stacked all of the boxes of our son's toys in an easy to get to spot in the garage!). When we move to more permanent digs i…Read Moren a couple months, we are calling them for help!
While we had a scheduled time, the moving company changed delivery time on us. They were real nice about changing the time of day I needed their services. I live in a two story apartment and they had some trouble getting things to the second story, but only because of the narrow hallway. Overall they were fast, on time, and…Read More polite.
James' crew took great care in loading our many antiques into the rental truck. They were very careful in removing the items from our house. Not one nick on the furniture or walls. The men were respectful and friendly. They took great pride in their work and finished on time. Will definately use them again.
My experience with Holland Real Estate Services was excellent! The communication was great, and they worked quickly but carefully to move my things into my new apartment! They were all very nice and I will certainly call them, if/when I move again:o)
I went with Holland Real Estate Services because there were so many positive reviews for them. Unfortunately, this turned out to be one of my worst moves ever. I went with the 4-man option thinking it would cut the move time in half. That was not the case. There were never more than two men working at any given time. A move…Read More that took 4 hours to complete in the past, took Holland 8 hours, doubling my original estimate. There was only one pace for these movers: SLOW!!! They scratched my newly finished hardwood floor down the entire hallway; there are gashes in the stairway walls, almost every piece of furniture they touched has damage to it. I would caution anyone considering this company to take heed and look elsewhere for your move. Do not let the number of positive reviews sway you. These men are not experienced or strong enough to handle antiques and heavy furniture.
They cleaned my apartment after I moved out of town so I never saw the results but the man I talked to seemed to be very nice and he kept me updated at regular intervals on how the work was going. I haven't heard anything negative from my apartment manager so I can assume they did a really good job.
The Hollard Real Estate movers were great. They arrived on time and handled all of my furniture very professionally. There were no unexpected costs and no surprises. Everything went very smoothly. I will use this team again when I need to move. Cathy Williams
