We had to move our entire 1st floor furniture into our garage to repair the floors. All the movers from this company were incredibly polite and helpful and moved everything according to our direction. The problems I had with the company were related to communication. When we were scheduling the move out, the phone message box wa…Read Mores full and no one answered the phone. when we were moving back in and they had not arrived, we called and they had been caught in a traffic jam and were going to be an hour late. No one ever called us to tell us; the only reason we found out was because we called. During the move back in, one mover left his jacket and even though we called many times no one ever called back so we could return the jacket. Twice they said they would come by to pick up the jacket and a new reclining chair we no longer wanted, but they never showed up and they never called. So the actual move went fairly well; the communication part was less than satisfactory,
Noah and Kevin are AMAZING. We were convinced when we picked up our truck that there was no way all of our stuff would fit in it -- no way at all. Not only did they fit all of our stuff, they fit the couch we thought we'd have to leave behind and there was still room left over. These guys are MAGICAL and my new heroes. Thank…Read More you!!!
The crew that was scheduled couldn't make it and the replacement crew arrived very late. They worked very hard, they were respectful, and they were careful with our things, but they were inexperienced and knew little about packing a pod. Pro load sent a crew that wasn’t well suited for our job, but at least they sent one.
Willy, Carlos, and Brian were amazing! They were on time, friendly and prepared. We were amazed with how well they organized our pod. They organized it and fit in everything that we wanted to take, there’s no way my husband and I would have fit everything in there. I would not hesitate to recommend their services.
They were on time, prepared for for the job and worked as rapidly as possible with the heavy pieces we needed carried upstairs. They were very careful with the furniture and the walls. These two young men even asked if there was more furniture they could help us with. Indeed, we did hire two helpers that we definitely would r…Read Moreehire again!
Movers called to let me know when they would be arriving. Upon arrival they began work immediately and got the job done quickly and efficiently.

On time, prepared for the job, worked hard, respectful of our goods. We'd definitely hire them again... Walker was great to work with. His youthful energy and height came in handy whilst helping us pack our 16' x 8' POD to the gills. He had a good attitude and was quick on the draw. His partner for the day, Reggie, was also …Read Morevery professional and fast acting. Mention Star Wars as an extra bonus for Walker and he'll be happy to talk about the saga ;-)
Willie and Carlos did a terrific job helping us move furniture, put down our heavy new Persian rugs, and move a heavy dining room table. They were on time, prepared, worked hard, considerate, efficient, respectful, careful, and precise. I highly recommend them and would use them again. Thank you.
ProLoad helped me move locally (within the county) recently. Although initially it was challenging reaching them directly by phone; however because it was during a holiday week, I did receive a response before the move occurred. Noah and his helper communicated the arrival time and the rest of the move went well. Noah also h…Read Moreelped consolidate existing items in the garage in order to make room for storing my items. They were respectful of the other tenant and overall, PROVIDED EXCELLENT SERVICE. I would highly recommend them for Bay Area moves.
These guys were AWESOME!! As it turned out, they were the same guys who LOADED my POD back the first of August. I was making a long distance move, got to my new location, hated it so I came back to the Bay Area but in a new location. It was like a family reunion when they showed up this morning...a happy surprise! This company d…Read Moreoes a fantastic job and the customer service, hard work and friendliness of they employees makes it easy to highly recommend them to anyone needing moving services. Thank you so much!!
Eduardo and Dominique were super hard workers, they arrived ahead of schedule and were fast and efficient. They were respectful and careful with all of my stuff, and even helped me put things together and park my moving truck. Luckily I had a hand truck with me (they did not), which was really important being upstairs, so if y…Read Moreou need one just be sure to request that they bring one order one from the truck company. Otherwise awesome and I would definitely recommend. They did a great job.
the two men, Carlos and another person are very professional. Knew how to expertly load the POD. Were timely and very wonderful to work with. On time, prepared for the job, worked very hard, were respectful of my property and goods. Yes I would use them again.
The movers were a few minutes late to the job site, but jumped right into the move. I had completed most of the packing and wrapping of furniture, but I quickly realized that they could more quickly and easily wrap and protect the large furniture better than me. They packed the POD I had rented excellently and finished everythin…Read Moreg I needed in the allotted time.
3 very professional men showed up on time, and ready to work! They were very courteous, and careful! Asking in they were not sure where something went. They assembled my bed frame and when they were done early they asked several times if there was anything else they could do. I was was very pleased with their service and manner …Read Morewould defiantly use them again.
Silverback showed up on time with dollies and tools. They unloaded the container quickly and efficiently and were careful with the contents. The workers were polite and respectful and communicated well. They finished within the 2 hour estimate. I would definitely use them again.
The two men who came to my house, Carlos and I didn't catch the other man's name, were awesome!!! Very polite, did the job fast and efficiently, and if they didn't know something, they asked me first. They were very respectful in every way and very hard workers! When the job was done, they even asked me if I needed anything els…Read Moree done! VERY IMPRESSIVE!!! They arrived on time, even earlier. I would definitely use them again!!! They were very nice too!!! Thank you so much for a great experience! :)
Mr Willie and Mr Reggie were just fantastic! They were on time and were willing to come earlier to accommodate us - 6AM! The two worked very well together and it showed when.m they needed to maneuver some of the trickier, heavier items. With their steady professionalism I felt confident that our belongings were going to be stor…Read Moreed tightly and be set for the cross-country move. I'd highly recommend those two from Silverback Packing and Moving!
Carlos and Edwin were on time, prepared for the job, worked very hard, respected my property and I would definitely use them again. They packed the PODS like a box filled puzzle by carefully placing boxes and securing them so they wouldn't move around. Then, the repacked a POD that another company packed because the first co…Read Morempany did a crummy job. They packed the second POD as carefully as the first one. Thanks for a fabulous job.
The team from Silverback did a fantastic job helping my husband and I unload our moving van! They arrived within the time frame, were friendly and professional, and never stopped working. They emptied our 16' van in well under the two hours we had booked. Thanks so much for making our move easier!
Unloaders arrived on time and were prepared to work hard on the rental truck household goods that we had to be unloaded. They were respectful of our property and the only reason 5 stars was not the rating was due to an issue with a work bench that was not handled as well as it should have been. Would use them again.
Only great things to say! They called the night before letting me know another job was probably going to run long to see if I was flexible with timing (I was). Called to let me know they were on their way. Were fast, efficient and friendly. They actually finished faster than we had allotted because of that. Knowledgeable and pr…Read Moreepared - provided a great experience. Thank you!!!
Keving and DeDe were outstanding. They were running late but we were notified of that. They cared for all of our belongings as if it was their own. Kind, polite, and very helpful. THey worked very hard carrying large pieces of furniture downstairs from a third floor apartment with no problems. I would definitely use Silverb…Read Moreack again.
Not only were they on time----they were early. Prepared for the job????? Not a wasted motion. They did not stop moving the whole time they were here. Was thrown a curve at the weight of one of the objects (REALLY heavy) and just went about moving it as though it was nothing. Very respective of our belongs, and property. Not onl…Read Morey would we use them again, if there were 6 stars, that is what we would give them. They worked for us on really short notice on Memorial Day when others did not want work on a holiday.
Kevin & Reggie from Silverback Packing & Moving were absolutely amazing. We booked last minute, and right from the start, they were extremely accommodating. They were both perfect gentlemen, they didn't require any extra direction other than which rooms to place a few items, and they were *so* quick. Seriously, it took four of u…Read Mores four hours to load everything into the truck (and we had an elevator). They unloaded EVERYTHING into our home in LESS THAN AN HOUR. And they had to walk up a flight of steps. So amazing. Thank you guys so much, we'll be using you the next time we move, and recommending you to our people!
Noah, the operations manager, called ahead to let us know they were running a bit late which was not a problem for us. Kevin & Eddie did a terrific job loading our POD. They also helped us securely pack our 52" flat screen TV and the entertainment center which consisted of 3 huge glass shelves. We had pretty much packed every…Read Morething else ourselves ahead of their arrival. Both Kevin & Eddie worked extremely hard, were polite and respectful. They wrapped pretty much all of our furniture that I felt needed special attention. Just be sure to purchase plenty of moving blankets, plastic wrap and tape to have available for these guys to use. I had purchased 24 moving blankets, and they used all of them. It was well worth it, especially for long distance moves and if stuff will be in storage for awhile! I would not hesitate to hire Kevin & Eddie again if needed.
Both gentlemen arrived on the job early. They were prepared with their tools and equipment. They both worked very hard. There was so much to do that we ended up keeping them on for an additional 3 hrs. They were respectful of our house and belongings. We would definitely use them again.
The Silverback movers were on time and ready to get started right away. They worked very hard and had a great, positive attitude, even though it was the hottest day of the year and temps were reaching the high 90's. They handled our belongings carefully and respectfully, and worked very hard to get heavy furniture up the stairs…Read More. I cannot recommend them highly enough.
These men were INCREDIBLE!! They arrived early, were kind throughout all the hard work, and were a joy to have as my helpers. They did all they could to help me and bent over backwards to fit it all in the pod. I highly recommend them! Thanks so much!!
These were the most professional and careful people I had the pleasure of working with. They would not let me lift a finger. They had everything done and set up in a timely manner. I would most certainly use them again and highly recommend them! What a wonderful team they were! Thank you!
These movers worked really hard and did an amazing job - except for the end. They damaged 3 drawers by forcing them into the dresser incorrectly or with bent metal. I cannot open one and 2 others will need to be removed and worked a bit - if I can get them out. It was a really nice/expensive piece of furniture and only half func…Read Moretional now. I would have much rather they didn't touch them. I would have taken much greater care if they'd left it for me to do. If I'd realized I would have asked them to stop.
Silverback did a great job helping me move furniture into my new office. Jerry and Kevin showed up during the arrival window ready to get straight to work. They had a great positive attitude which is something I think is an underrated for movers. They didn't hesitate jumping in and following direction. I would definitely hire th…Read Moreem again.
Awesome experience and I would highly recommend using Silverback packing and moving. The team we had was extremely professional, personable, and still very quick. They moved our items from a 3rd floor one-bedroom apt., wrapped our shelves, and miraculously loaded our belongings into a relo cube. This is after an attendant at …Read Morethe relo cube location scoffed at us when we asked if our belongings would fit. Silverback packing and moving definitely exceeded my expectations. Overall the entire move took 2 hrs and I couldn't think of a better way to have moved.
They were on time, and nice, but they worked pretty slowly and didn't pack well for an inter-state move (packed more for a city move). The company used for unloading was shocked the loading had been done by professionals. They said they assumed it was just me and my buddies packing. A piece of a desk was also broken when one of …Read Morethe guys fell on it. We also ended up having to leave some items that didn't fit, but I think probably could have if packed better.
Jerry and Willy were an hour late. They worked well together and worked their asses off being extremely careful with every piece they loaded to avoid any damage to our belongings. They were not particularly prepared for the job, but kept complementing us on how prepared we were with having boxes packed and labeled, tape, shrin…Read Morek wrap, blankets. and rope ready and available. They both stated that this was one of the easiest moves they had done due to our preparedness. We were disappointed that with the two containers ( a 16' and a 7') that that stated they could not fit two outdoor lounge chairs, the cushions for the chairs, and an umbrella stand in either container. Both were very polite, professional, and courteous. The big surprise at the end, which we were not prepared for, was their request to be paid in cash and were not able to provide us a receipt for the cash we paid them saying that they were "private contractors". They finally agreed to sign a make-shift receipt on a piece of scratch paper. Other than the two flies in the ointment mentioned above, we would highly recommend, without hesitation, the super wonderful Jerry and Willy!
We hired 2 helpers to move a bunch of our furniture and boxed belongings. They came right on time and gave it their all from the beginning to the end of the 2 hours we hired them. They took great care to make sure our paintings and China cabinets were properly wrapped and transported from the apartment. At all times they were re…Read Morespectful to us and our things. I highly recommend them and will use them again in the future when I need help.
Willy and Jerry were right on time and ready to get to work. They did a fantastic job, paying careful attention to our requests and taking extreme care with our property ensuring that nothing was damaged. They did every due diligence. They were very friendly, enthusiastic and committed to their job. We were extremely pleased…Read More with what they did for us and how they did it. We would most definitely hire them again if/when the need arises. We would definitely highly recommend them to others.
They did a great job! Not only on time but a little bit early! They worked very hard for the two hours we hired them for and they did an excellent job. They took great care when moving items and nothing was damaged at all. They were very nice guys and fun to work with! I never felt like they were in a rush and I couldn't be more…Read More pleased with how things went. Highly recommended!!
The two workers were extremely punctual. They were very easy to work with. There was one negative discovered after they left. When they put the bed together, they failed to make sure the slats were in the correct location so this allowed the memory foam mattress to tilt. I took three nights of restless near sleep to discover the…Read More problem.
Silverback Packing & Moving is the company to go with. Unfortunately they were delayed by the early morning bay area traffic. But once they arrived they were effective and efficient. They immediately accessed what the job would entail, asked me questions about what would be placed where, and went to work getting the job done. …Read More I appreciate the careful way they handled my property and the caution they took as they moved throughout my home. A job well done, and worth the $$$.
They were late and inexperienced. We had quite a bit of damage to our furniture. What should have taken no more than 4 hours, took 8. The truck was packed poorly. The experienced people left to go to another job and left us with the inexperienced ones. I cannot recommend this company.
I was so happy to schedule last minute help for my parents move. HireAHelper was awesome!! However, Silverback Packing & Moving was the most unprofessional business I have ever dealt with. Some of the issues: Poor communication - owner never showed up after texting he would be there is just part of, workers that did show wer…Read Moree over 2 hours late, head mover in sandals and not appropriate moving attire, one guy fell off the truck - I hope he's okay, then charge me for 3 hours when it was 2 hours 45 minutes with everyone taking at least two breaks. I just wanted them out of there. They were nice enough people and got the job done, but I would never work with them again.
Richard and Anthony were on time, were very engaged with us, and took very seriously all our input and requests. They moved all the house furniture from the garage and back patio back into the house in two hours. We had moved it out to have the hard wood floors throughout the house refinished. Both were very friendly and work…Read Moreed hard and carefully. There wasn't a scratch on our new floors when they were done I recommend them and would use them again.
They were a little late but did call to let me know. I was a bit frustrated because it was past the alloted time window. When they arrived they were really great. Worked really hard and went above and beyond getting everything moved especially my couch which was very difficult.
These guys were awesome. Very friendly and professional. We had a baby grand piano too - really knew what they were doing. My dad was at the house to meet them - he bought them lunch! They were friendly and did a great job. I'll hire them again. Rebecca Jones
Both of the gentlemen who assisted with unloading the truck at my apartment in Napa were excellent. They were speedy, professional and offered excellent advice regarding loading a large bed frame into the upstairs bedroom which took quite a bit of maneuvering. I appreciated how efficient and fast they both worked. I highly recom…Read Moremend Silverback Packing and Moving. DRS
Wonderful company. Met our scheduling time and moving needs. The two gentlemen that came out worked fast and carefully, very respectful, very responsible, and handled our second floor moving up and down stairs very professionally. The pricing was appropriate for the great help we received. Use them again any time.
Stacked boxes marked books on boxes marked fragile. Had to leave a few pieces of furniture behind do to the truck not being organized well. I packed clothing and soft items into bags to be used as sick absorbers due to the distance of the move. None were used this way after asking repeatedlyfor them to do so. I had rented st…Read Moreraps to make a wall and none were used. They did stay an extra 2 hours to finish loading the truck.
So great and accommodating. Noah and his team helped my fiance and I move, even though we needed extra hours and had quite a bit of "random" stuff left to put into bags at the end. Very very efficient, friendly, and took great care. They had one gentleman with them that was in training, and hearing Noah explain how to move thing…Read Mores, not hurt yourself, be efficient, etc really showed me he knows his stuff! Would definitely recommend!!
If there was a 4.5 rating, that's what I would give. I highly recommend the service and would definitely use again! I scheduled my move at 8:30 the night before I needed help as this was an urgent situation. Noah stayed in contact while making arrangements with his crew until after 10 PM. I was able to go to bed knowing the…Read More move would take place on time. My recommendations are to be a little more careful with packing the truck and don't wear a t-shirt with double entendre when working in elderly environment.
Noah from Silverback and his two expert movers were terrific. Carlos and Gustavo arrived on schedule and worked efficiently. They wrapped some items in plastic, loaded pre-packed boxes and furniture into our POD and filled it with much more than I expected to move in two hours. I was extremely happy with the service that Noah…Read More and his two movers, Carlos and Gustavo, provided. Thank you.
Great experience. I had setup for 2 hours in the afternoon. When the previous job was delayed they called to make sure it was okay for the delay and even offered to send someone to come right away.

Joseph showed up early and got started outside the two-hour window, which I appreciated. He was a good manager for his partner Jerry and things went quite smoothly overall. No damage, considerable care in where things were placed and how I wanted them done, and easy to communicate with. I underestimated the time required a bit, …Read Moreand we were a bit rushed to get everything out of the pods in the two-hour window, but that's not their responsibility. Everything did get moved inside and the essential heavy / difficult to assemble items put back together. I'd call them again!
My helper arrived on time and ready to go. He was polite, hard-working and cooperative. I had to leave at one point to return a U-Haul van and he continued working and was nearly done by the time I returned. I moved out of state, but if I ever return, I would use Silverback again.
This was my first experience with using a moving company and I have to say that there is a 100% chance that I'd use the guys at Silverback again. They made everything so much easier on what is normally a very stressful time. They were careful and conscientious and worked with us to get in and out quickly.
So while moving my things off the truck, the workers let my dresser mirror fall, which then shattered. I did contact Noah, the owner first before writing this review, have never heard back from him and it has been over 2 weeks. I don't believe they are willing to take any responsibility for the breaking of my mirror.
The gentleman actually followed up with phone calls, asked if any special equipment would be needs and showed up early ! I was impressed with their work ethic, I have used a couple of companies in the past recommended by UHaul and I was to say the very least hesitant to use anyone recommended by such companies. Well, when Pe…Read Morenske recommended this company and told me they do not utilize any companies if they didn't meet or exceed their standards I decided to give it one last chance. I would highly recommend Silverback as I was totally impressed with the professionalism and commitment to a high standard. I was also impressed with the ability to pack a truck. Great job. Thank you !!
Two guys, three flights of stairs, and a bunch of heavy awkward furniture. They loaded the truck I provided perfectly, and everything unloaded at the other end easily and damage-free. Communication was easy, the price was right, and they finished the job on time. I'll use them again, and recommend you try them out.
The Silverback movers were the BEST! They stepped in on short notice when there was a problem with my previously-booked movers on the day of the move, and they couldn't have been better. They were on time, professional, super friendly, clean, and fast! They took excellent care of my stuff and still finished under time. I will ab…Read Moresolutely use them again next time I move, and I would recommend them to anyone.
Silverback Packing & Moving are AMAZING! Noah Brown and his team are wonderful, professional and where on time. I felt completely comfortable and I totally trusted them. I have dealt with a lot of movers over the years and I have to tell you moving forward I will always call Silverback Packing & Moving. I had some really big fu…Read Morerniture and when I say big I mean really big and they were able to move it without any issues, there was not a scratch or mark on ANYTHING. I have to say that has never happened before. There really is not enough I can say about this company, if you truly care about you belongings and want a great deal call Silverback Packing & Moving. Looking for the best, Silverback Packing & Moving are the best.
