Worked very quickly, but with extreme care. Even helped unload our pickup truck when they finished the moving truck. They were super nice and respectful.

These two were super hard workers, knowledgeable and personable. Not only did they unload my things, they gave great suggestions on where things should go and offered to help with assembly. Moving days are always stressful, but this crew takes the stress out. I highly recommend them and would use them again!

Paul, the owner of Southern Hospitality Movers, is a gentleman and a professional. He was extremely thorough and he did not damage any walls or furniture during the move. I would highly recommend Southern Hospitality to anyone looking for dependable help. I have used three other companies in the past four years and none of them came close.

These guys are AWESOME! I hired them to load a UBox container which I was concerned would not be enough space. They were very respectful of every piece of property, big or small, and made sure everything was packed strategically and safe. Mike and Larry were also super friendly - I highly recommend Armstrong Moving & Labor.

Nathan and team were on time abs ready to work. I hired three helpers:1 stages the truck and two moved my belongings... it was a well laid plan and they completed the move with no issues. They were very friendly, polite, and ready to listen to any suggestions. I would hire them to move me again!

Day Labor FAQ

Can I book them for other day labor type stuff, even though they're movers?

Can I hire them as moving labor to help move my own stuff?

Movers aren't paid until after the job is done

No sketchy ads, no babysitting the moving company, no "hostage" situations. Plus, your crew isn't paid until your move is done. You call the shots.
