AVOID! After waiting about 30 minutes, I decided to call to see when they would arrive. When I called, it seemed they forgot my reservation or, just didn't plan well for it as I was told that movers were still on another move and wouldn't be able to come until 2 pm, which was 3 hours after our 11 am start time! In the end, we di…Read Mored get movers but, TWO HOURS LATE. After they arrived I tried to express my urgency in moving quickly as we had a reserved time slot for the elevator. But, the movers were moving VERY slowly. Taking one thing at a time and using their cell phone in between trips. To move out of a one bedroom apartment out it took FOUR hours. And then, they came with us to unload the truck in our new apartment which took another FOUR hours! It was absolutely the longest and most frustrating day. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR. Definitely pay a little more to get movers that actually HELP your move.Show Response
We apologize that you felt that way. Even though we found out that you could not afford your move we still worked out a payment plan with you. The movers had to deal with slow elevators in your building & other tenants moving out at the same time causing delays in your move. Next time you should be more grateful for a moving job that you had received for a good price & good quality service with no damages. Most of our customers write 5 star reviews. We understand that every once in a while we re

I was so surprised when the two workers showed up. They looked like teenagers with very slight builds. One was a young lady and the other a young man. Well....you can't judge a book by its cover. These two young people, 24 and 29 years old were awesome!!! Along with their brevity, they were efficient, hard working, and super-org…Read Moreanized! They showed up early and worked extremely hard in very hot weather. I would recommend this company a million times over! Thank you Top Choice Movers for living up to your name. --K.

The guys worked very hard but broke 4 of our items. They apologized immediately. We asked them to bring in our couch and suggested they measure before bringing in;however, they were confident it would fit. It did not and caused the couch to be ruined from all of the pushing and shoving against the wall.
One of the guys was 15 minutes late. He didn't seem like he waneed to be there and spent most of the time complaining that things were too heavy, it wouldn't fit or that I should re-think my move. In the end, the truck was not packed effeciently. They wasted time waiting for the elevator in the lobby even I indicated stairs…Read More in the order. They also left a box in the lobby which my super found and they packed up to leave 20 minutes early and would only carry small item at a time after I informed them that i still had 20 minutes. I have move a lot for my career and often use helpers. I have never had an experience like this. It was horrible!
I hired two movers for two hours. Although Top Choice Movers confirmed with me a few days in advance, only one of the movers, Jeremiah, showed up. He called to tell me he would be late, so I was not concerned. I received random text messages (long after the job was scheduled to be complete) asking me if my movers showed up on…Read More time. When I reported that one never showed up at all, I didn't get an apology. All they asked was "do you need someone else or your good" ... No I'm not good, but it was too late and I completed the job myself. Bottom line, if your mover shows up they might be great (Jeremiah was efficient and very nice), but you can't count on it.
They were supposed to arrive between 9-10am, since I was supposed to be moved out of my building by noon. At 10:08, I was told they were having delays on the train. At 10:35, the main number said they were trying to get in touch with the men to find out what was going on. By 11, I asked if they had different movers they could se…Read Morend. By noon, there was still no update and I had to cancel and try to find another company that could arrive sooner. That whole time I was waiting for them to arrive, I was trying to move my furniture myself so my super wouldn't be mad, and I wound up falling down the stairs and fracturing my ankle. Thankfully hireahelper found another company to help me move and then I went to an emergency clinic after. Worst day ever.
We had a really great experience. These guys worked hard and smart! Super efficient with time and did an amazing job packing the truck! Took really good care not to damage our furniture and really nice guys to work with. Would absolutely not hesitate to hire these two guys again!
When I hired two movers from Top Choice Movers, I never expected to have such young people. They werent bad, just your typical young people who are careless and unaware of their actions. Being a teacher for over 15 years, when I hired movers, i did not expect to have to manage a group of students to conduct the process. I ex…Read Morepected mature and professional people.
I hired these movers for my family - to help transport from their apartment to their moving truck. To be fair, they were hired the morning of the move, so things may have been a little last-minute. They were supposed to be there between 12-1pm (2 movers). 1 mover showed up at 2:15 and the other one at nearly 3:30 when the job wa…Read Mores basically done. However, the 1 mover who did show up was excellent, professional, and really worked hard. All of my family's things were packed well, which is, I guess, the point.
If you are looking for a cheap option to have your stuff unloaded, I would recommend this group. They did everything quickly and were respectful of my property. They asked where to place every item as to make it the most efficient. The biggest complaint is the movers didn't show up on time. Anthony had called saying he was on hi…Read Mores way a little before the appointment and arrived a few minutes after. His co-worker did not show up until 45 minutes after the scheduled time. Thankfully the move took less than a hour so I didnt have to worry about going over the 2 hours.
Shannon and Juan were amazing. They showed up on time and were very polite and respectful. Moved all of our things in the time allotted even though we had a tight fit getting all our things in the truck. They were careful with our furniture and boxes. Great job guys! Especially because they were a fill in hire for a same day can…Read Morecellation. Would recommend!
We had two very nice brothers unload our 12' truck and move items up to the fifth floor without a single complaint (no elevator). They were punctual, polite, hard working, and treated our things as if they owned them. I don't know anything about Top Choice, the company, but the two gentlem that helped with our move were great!
Really nice guys, worked hard the whole time. A couple boxes ended up upside down (including one marked "Fragile") but I'm in a 4th floor walkup so I cut them some slack - it was a very tough move. Wouldn't recommend them to move your china shop, but if you packed your stuff well they're a good choice. Can't beat their price.
A very friendly and relaxed group of guys. They came in for my major load out of over 25 very large filing cabinets and misc items. It seemed like I blinked and the job was done. The important part of this job was that it was completed with no damage to the items being moved, and they definitely seemed to enjoy themselves during…Read More the move. All and All this moving company is fantastic and should definitely always be utilized. Side Note: if you pay for more than 2 hours be sure to tell your movers, because it seems that their dispatcher tends to lie to them and pocket the extra money. Make sure these really proficient workers don't get short-changed! They're great!
I was very pleased with the job the two gentleman provided. I was not pleased with the reaction they displayed when not getting paid in cash. I had already been charged and the yelling and screaming that happened when they found out they were not being paid cash was something that needs addressed. I will not use this service …Read Moreagain. I would also like a personal call to follow this review.
PJ and Bruce were excellent! They arrived to the job on time and were professional, respectful and SUPER FAST! They worked very hard and most importantly were extremely careful with my personal belongings. Thanks guys! You guys are the true "A Team". God bless!
Top Choice Movers were very easy to coordinate with and they were punctual. They were friendly and hard working, very careful with my furniture and time efficient! Finishing well before the two hour time allotment. I would absolutely use them again if needed and recommend them to anyone who needed a mover.
PJ and Van were very fast, organized and had a well executed plan to get our stuff from our old apartment and into the new one. Also I am very satisfied with the entire process, receiving adequate updates and notifications. Great job to the team!
I'm not sure if I have the words to adequately express my appreciation for Howard who dispatched the two individuals who helped me pack my belongings for shipment, and the hard work of those men. Top Choice Movers possess effective communication, professionalism, and courtesy like no other. They are truly team-spirited indiv…Read Moreiduals who were undeniably a top choice. They arrived for me just when I needed them, ready to work and cognizant of my concerns. Now I only wish that the opportunity arises for me to recommend Top Choice Movers to someone, anyone in need of similar support. Thank you Top Choice Movers-for living up to your name.

One of the helpers was on time, the other was five minutes late -- no big deal. They were prepared for the job and seemed to work hard. They were respectful and careful with my belongings. However, they did not use their brains at all when putting labeled boxes in my new apartment (i.e., trying to put boxes in the room which…Read More matched the label on the box). Also, there was a disagreement about the cost of additional time to finish the job. I showed the head helper an email confirmation with rates for the job. He raised his voice a bit and called his boss -- seems there was some miscommunication. He later apologized, but it was unprofessional. Although it was not a bad experience overall and my belongings got unloaded safely, I would probably opt to use another company in the future.
The guys were respectful and hard working. They wanted to show up 30 minutes early, which did not work for me since I was not going to be there. I only give them 4 stars because then they ended up arriving an hour late. But they got the job done well.
These guys were a lifesaver! Moved from Atlanta to a 4th floor walk up in Manhattan. They showed up on time with commitment to get the job done on time! They were courteous and hard working and I cannot say enough good things about them. I highly recommend using them! Thank you, thank you, thank you! And don't forget to tip them…Read More!
The two movers both showed up late. They used every stall tactic they could, but mostly they would load one item and then rearrange the truck on every trip. My 100 pound wife and I eventually started helping because they were taking so long. Despite everything being packed, it took 2 hours to load a small one bedroom. At the new…Read More location, they dragged their feet even more, barely unloading anything. They then had the nerve to ask if I wanted to buy another hour off the books. I assume that was their plan the whole time, but I declined. In then end, they broke my couch and dresser, did about one hour worth of solid work, and then hit me up for extra money and a ride home. I will not be giving them my business again.
this was the move in the next day with a new crew..Much more professional..2nd guy was a bit late but 2 guys instead of 3 moved my van full of furniture and stuff up 4 flights of stairs faster than the crew of 3 moved us out yesterday.

These guys made moving fun. Booked them midnight the night before and they showed up at 9 am right on time. They moved things very quickly, and organized the truck perfectly. A two bedroom (couple with six yr) was done in two hours. Would highly recommend them.
There was a little mix up with directions so they got their late but they called to keep me in the loop. We needed to disassemble some desks.

Our movers were not only on time, they were early! They were polite, professional, and treated our belongings with great care. They made the best of the fact that the vehicle we rented was too small, and had a great attitude in general. We would absolutely use them again!
Called topchoice 3 days before the move and they were available. Both movers showed up together at 10:00 on the dot (that was my requested time). Both were prepared, ready and willing to work hard.

The guys from Top Choice Movers were great! They arrived within the appointment window, and they finished the job in 1/3 of the time I anticipated. They were friendly, professional, and very very helpful. I 100% recommend Top Choice Movers!
Outstanding job. My movers showed up on time and were ready to go right to work. They did a great job moving all of my belongings and got a lot more into the moving truck than I expected. I would definitely recommend and use them again. Thanks guys!!!
Booked for the 9-10 am timeslot for 2 hours. The first helper arrived at around 920 am and the second 20 minutes later. They were both very friendly and efficient and there was no damage to any of the items. They did an excellent job packing the truck. I would use them again if necessary.
The 2 gentlemen I had worked wonderfully together. They moved my entire apartment in a flash and were gracious and comfortable to be around. It was the first time I felt completely confident in just letting the movers do what they do, I did not need to delegate or even check on them. If there was an even better rating, I woul…Read Mored give it! A true pleasure of a move.

Top Choice Movers was a pleasure to work with. After scheduling my move I received a follow up text to confirm all the details a day before and one of my movers even called personally to discuss the job. My move was scheduled for 11:30am and both of my movers - Ken and Mr. Thomas - showed up early. Close to a 1/2 hour early! …Read MoreThey were personable, prepared, respectful of my things and moved at a fine pace even though I was on a 4th floor walk up. I would recommend.
I appreciated how punctual, courteous, and efficient both helpers were. They did the job exactly as it should have been done. I was particularly impressed by the fact that the both traveled to the job site in NJ by public transportation from their homes in the Bronx. That's initiative I admire.
If I could review my movers individually, I would give them each different star ratings. We had one that was a ROCK STAR! He was early, carried a ton at a time (while not damaging a thing), was always smiling and happy, and kept moving knowing that we were paying him hourly. I would give him a 6 out of 5 if I could. The other gu…Read Morey was a few minutes late (which was nothing, it was honestly just a few minutes), but then would carry less than half of what the other guy did. He would move slower, carry things like my bag of sheets instead of heavy items (I was helping too so it really bothered me when he was taking the things I could clearly handle myself), and start talking to either me or ON THE PHONE when I was paying him by the hour. I was not please with him in the slightest. Overall, I would recommend them because the first mover was so great. I would just make it clear in the beginning what they should be carrying, and that you would not extend the time so they need to move quickly.
It's my first time using the service listed on HireAHelper. PJ and his partner (sorry I forgot his name) arrived promptly, a few minutes before 9am. They started right away, very careful with my furnitures, wrapping them well. They were super efficient and were very professional - we were done with the move in less than 2 hou…Read Morers. Highly recommend Top Choice Movers.
They were late by 20 minutes due to train delays. However, once they arrived they went right to work and still managed to move everything into my 4th floor walkup within two hours. They were very professional and efficient. I would use them again.
The company responded to my e-mail quickly when I emailed them directly to confirm the agreement. I appreciated this since I am a bit skeptical of internet contracts! Two young men showed up on time and ready to work. The only parking was across the street but they just rolled up their sleeves and started carrying the furniture …Read Moreacross the street and up the stairs without a second thought. They were efficient but careful, asked where we wanted things and moved some things twice without complaint. Very polite and engaging young men. I would definitely use them again.
The movers arrived more than THREE hours late! We had to miss a day at work unexpectedly and ended up paying extra money for our rental truck. The company management assigned another job to the movers BEFORE our 9am appointment, which caused all the problems. The movers worked hard once they arrived; the delay was apparently not…Read More their fault. I would hesitate to use this company again.
GREAT JOB! I was having a stressful moving day and my mover really helped the last piece go very smoothly. I had a cargo van with no furniture, but there were several heavy boxes and a 50 inch TV. He was able to get it all up to my 4th floor walk up in a little over an hour, and was very polite and made sure he was doing thing…Read Mores the way I wanted. Well worth it, I highly recommend!
I had two men help me move my furniture from the street to a second floor walk up. They did a great job and were very friendly. They even brought one chair back down after I decided it was too big for the space. They unfortunately scratched my dresser but it was a tight space. I would definitely use them again!
The movers showed up on-time and were very attentive at figuring out the best way of moving my belongings downstairs. I told them the heaviest objects (ones that would certainly require two people) and were understanding. The one issue I had is that many of my pieces of wooden furniture were scuffed/scratched/dinged (irreparably…Read More) in the moving process. I was very careful with which surfaces I set them on and at which angles, but when the movers moved them they tried to stack many of them. In more than one instance, the multiple slick surfaces resulted in more than one piece of wood falling onto the concrete sidewalk. At one point, a wooden piece was pivoted on the ground, causing a major scratch into a corner. These pieces of furniture were not exceptionally expensive, but I was not happy that they were dinged in the process when they've been moved cross-country before with little to no damage.
Randy and PJ did a great job! I was so surprised how organized they are esp Randy. I rented a 10' truck and so much stuff went in the truck bec of how randy arranged them starting with all boxes first then furnitures and all others.

The guys were fast and nice but they just did what no mover ever should... They showed up 2 and a half hours late. That was enough to screw our entire moving day because we had to be at the new place by a certain hour in order to receive the keys and sign papers. Of course we didn't make it in time. They were booked 2 guys for 3…Read More hrs but they were done in 2. First that arrived was PJ and he was polite and fast. 20 minutes later two more guys showed up ( one extra guy probably to make up for the lateness) and they just started working right away. Most furniture got scratched but that was our fault mostly because we didn't really protect it with anything and it is not the most expensive kind either. So word of advice, protect the furniture. The audio video stuff they were gentle with it so everything was good at destination. So just to sum up, they weren't on time at all. They were prepared for the job. They did work hard. Respectful of my property and good, not so much but again, that might have been our fault being the ones unprepared. I would use them again but I would not wait 1 hour for them to be late to call...I would call 10 minutes after realizing they are late. So I strongly advice to call as soon as you notice your movers are late. P.S. Both companies were nice and they did give us discounts for the whole late situation. We didn't even asked or argued for it but we greatly appreciated it. And I am really sorry guys if you got even less money from the move. I guess it was a sucky day for all of us.
We arrived ten minutes early to find them there waiting for us. They were courteous, friendly and got right to work.

I hired two helpers for 4 hours, and I am so glad that I got the extra two hours. The helpers (male) showed up closer to the end of my 10:00-11:00 window, so I was able to put them to work until 2:40 pm. The unload of my POD container (16x8x8) took an hour and a half! Super fast!

Customer was a young spoiled brat. They told her that she needed an Allen key tool for her king size bed. She told the movers to leave because she didn't want to take their advice. Then she called the movers to come back because she realized the movers were right. The movers worked for 4 hours & we spared her 1 hour because the movers had to go buy an Allen key from Home Depot. I'm glad her move is over. My movers prefer to work for the Good customers that give us 5 stars reviews.

Top Choice seemed like a good selection. They were the cheapest in the NYC area on the date I was looking for, and I actually booked them after speaking to someone on the phone from Hire A Helper, who informed me they didn't have any bad ratings. I was in touch with them leading up to the move day, and everything seemed ok. …Read More To be fair, I had a slightly unusual situation. I was going to be arriving in NYC with a Uhaul truck, and only needed help unloading. I was going to unload in NYC, and then drive to a 2nd location in the suburbs and unload the rest of the truck there. I explained this to Howard from Top Choice, and explained that the start time was important. I wouldn't just be waiting in my apartment for movers to come and load the truck. I would be arriving with a full truck and double parking at a hydrant in Manhattan to do as fast an unload as possible. On the day of the move, I get a call from the movers 1.5 hours before they were supposed to arrive. I was already in the Uhaul truck on the way to NYC. They told me they were doing another job and were running late. They couldn't tell me how late they would be,but it would be at least 1.5-2 hours after our agreed upon start time. Obviously I couldn't be expected to double park a truck in Manhattan for 2 hours or more waiting for them, and also I had to return the truck at a certain time or face extra charges. They didn't really seem to think they had done anything wrong or didn't even really apologize. This was just the way things were going to be. So, I called Hire a Helper in a panic and they helped me locate another company last minute. I cancelled with Top Choice and did my move with another moving company. Unfortunately that company was pretty horrible, but at least they showed up and the job was done. It was a Saturday and also the 1st of the month so I'm sure all the good movers were already booked. One final piece, initially Top Choice told me I had to pay for the transportation of their movers. Since we were going to end the day in the suburbs, they told me I had to pay the train fare for the workers to get back to NYC. When I called Hire a Helper to complain, they quickly agreed to cover the cost themselves. Bottom line, I would not trust Top Choice with anything related to a moveShow Response
Our other 5 star reviews makes Adam's review irrelevant.This guy has some nerve. We tell him ahead of time that the movers were backed up from an earlier move, so he had the choice to wait an hour for us or go with another moving company. He choose to go with another moving company in which he complained about them also. He's writes this big novel review like he has nothing else better to do with his self. Hopefully he will go fishing this summer. We have better repeated customers to attend to.

The two men i hired showed up right on time. They were very efficient, polite and did a fabulous job moving my furniture into our U-Haul van. Some of the items were a challenge to load into the small elevator in our building but they figured it out and were successful. Everything was loaded into the van without any breakage and …Read Morethey figured out the puzzle..the best way to fit everything in. Then they helped me bring the "throw out" items down the basement to the trash. They were wonderful and got it all done in less than the 2 hours i hired them for. I'd use them again in a NY minute. I know they are hard workers as they had three moving jobs that day.
I usually never ever write reviews, but given the circumstances that I went through my moving I am happy to write a review for them. When you haven't live long enough in NYC and you have to move to a new place is difficult to search online and find out what place is good, cheap and reliable. I was very happy to find this site…Read More to get my movers. They did a wonderful job, in time, quality and price. Really save me time for my search and release me from a big stress. I got email notification, available on the phone for any question or change. Really really recommend to use the site to do your search. - Monica Ramirez
Scheduled time was 7-8 am, showed up 8:47 without hand carts or dollys (no tools at all). Shamell had pajama pants on that kept sliding down. The job was initially only 2 hrs, but between smoke, snack and bathroom breaks the time stretched to nearly 4 hrs. Jordan did a satisfactory job I suppose, but its insane that my husband a…Read Morend I completely unloaded the truck ourselves and these 2 couldn't get our things moved in a timely manner. The were pleasanr enough but not at all effiecient. We won't use them or hired helpers again as they provided such an unprofessional company.Show Response
Please disregard this review. The client was writing about another company that loaded their truck on that same day, whereas my movers unloaded them on that same day. We have over 70 jobs completed and the best price on this site. We offer affordable services such as cleaning, driving, load&unloading, packing, etc. We get booked a lot because of our great prices so be prepare to give the movers some ample time to arrive to you. All jobs are completed successfully. Best bargain in town.

This was my first time hiring movers. Usually I ask a few buddies to help me, but this time the logistics were a nightmare. 1) One bedroom apartment stored in a garage connected to my new building (don't ask) 2) The garage was on the complete opposite side of the building (100+ yds) 3) The apartment is on the 3rd floor …Read More Both of my movers, Randy and Marvin, showed up 45 minutes early even though they had to take the bus in from NYC. They ended up having to wait for me to get back home, but didn't complain at all. They were very professional and genuinely nice guys. Before we started, I knew the 2 hour time frame wasn't realistic given the setup. So I helped with the little things and offered my van as a transport around the building. They worked incredibly well as a team and never stopped for more than a minute for a breather. They always offered to take anything I was carrying and were always respectful of all my belongings. We managed to complete the job in a little under 2 hours. As for equipment - I provided a dolly and two hand-trucks, which I knew was my responsibility before I hired them, but Marvin actually showed up with a dolly just in case. I thought that was great and it came in handy. I would definitely use them again and am very glad I found this website. I had no idea you could hire movers without trucks. I would have ended up paying 2X the amount. If you end up using Top Choice, ask for my guys Randy and Marvin.
I had a pleasant experience with choice movers. They arrived late due to traffic, but they got the job done very quickly. I didn't need anything moved to another apartment, it was just removing the entire contents of my apt to the sidewalk. There were 2 men, and they were very efficient and worked hard. They were respectful a…Read Morend I would use them again.
The movers were 30 minutes late, we were helping as well and moved twice as much stuff in the same amount of time, and they were unskilled with a hand-truck. However, they did carry some items that we did not want to carry ourselves and the price was pretty good so we did not regret hiring them. Next time we would probably pay…Read More more for better movers.
Had two different groups movers in the same day from different companies in different cities. I just assumed that the half moving work I got from these guys is what you get for hiring the cheaper workers on the list, but after the second group of movers came I realized no these guys were just slow and unprofessional. The guys…Read More were both very nice. The main one tried to talk more than he worked. They took 3 hours to load what took the other group only 1 hour to unload up 2 flights of stairs and set up. Due to the fact that this is just a gig there picking up not actually being professional movers they ended up breaking my couch and I had to couch them on how to swing it into elevator.(next group of movers actually took the time to fix couch for me). When they loaded boxes they put heavy boxes on light boxes that ended up crushing those boxes by the time we got to next location and put boxes on top of boxes that were clearly marked "Do not place anything on top of". I hired them for 2 hours which I thought would be a buffer in case it took them a little longer and ended up having to pay them for 3 hours. They moved so slow and were in no hurry to try and finish on time. A friend and I started moving stuff ourselves just to get them done in 3 hours. Like I said they were nice guys, but I hired them to be movers not nice guys.
They arrived 11/2 hours late for a two hour job-Otherwisw they were fine willing and able to work but at that point I had done so much of the job myself that a lot of what was left was organizing and binding objects in the truck. they were careful and very respectful' I would not use them again because punctuality on a moving …Read Morejob is of primary importance.
Curtis, my mover from Top Choice Movers was professional, polite and worked efficiently to ensure my move went as smoothly and as quickly as possible. He did this on the hottest and stickiest day of the year. The only thing I wasn't totally thrilled with was that he arrived a bit later to my place than I requested. If timing is …Read Moreimportant for your move, my advice would be to call the company and let them know that punctuality is important and give them an estimated travel time from the Bronx or wherever the mover is located. Overall, I was very satisfied and I would definitely use Top Choice Movers again.
I was a bit concerned in hiring someone blindly. I have to say these 2 guys (Devante & Alonzo) were great! It was 100 degrees and they never complained. They showed up when I scheduled the service. Polite and very helpful. Would recommend beyond a doubt t 100%. Payment was safe and secure
I requested two helpers and only one arrived, 1.5 hours late. The man that did arrive was very helpful and worked hard to help me load the truck. Yusef was also careful with my property and helped load the truck properly. I would hire Yusef again but not through Top Choice Movers.
