Let me just start off by saying wow what a great job Rodney and his partner did Loading up the 26 foot truck. They did a great job organizing everything and they were just very easy to work with. I honestly wish they could come down to North Carolina and unload the truck just as good as they loaded the truck. I would honestly recommend hiring these two gentlemen for any future move as they made it look very easy and within the two hour time limit got a whole townhome with four bedrooms loaded very conveniently. Thank you both for the hard work.

The team that helped me unload my storage containers showed up right on time, worked hard the entire time and didn’t damage anything they loved or my home. They were friendly the entire time as well. I would highly recommend them and would hire them again next time I need help.

Lucas Movers were excellent. I made a move from Baltimore to Philadelphia in a 20’ Uhaul truck. I had hired movers in Baltimore, and these movers were terrible — spent much of the time on their phone with other customers, refused to use furniture pads, and moved only about half of what needed to be loaded into the truck. As a result, I had to reschedule Lucas Movers to very late in the evening — at the last minute — as I had to spend many hours packing what the first movers did not. But this team of movers was a completely different story. They were very professional, diving up labor between the three of them so that they were continuously moving items into the apartment. They placed boxes in the correct rooms, waited for me to finish assembling my bed frame to place the mattress on top of it for me, and even helped rearrange furniture pieces. They did all of this within the time I paid for. It was such a different experience from my movers earlier in the day. I would use them again for any move, I HIGHLY recommend them.

Harry and Chris arrived on time and ready to work. Harry called us to let us know they were on their way a short time before arriving. They had their masks on. Harry asked pertinent questions and surveyed the items to be moved, before working with us on a plan. This only took a few minutes, but it told me they were thoughtful about how they were going to safely load our furniture and make the most of the time we had allotted, and showed their desire to help us save our money. They were friendly, respectful, and carefully moved all the items we needed moved. They were polite, and kept busy the whole time, working conscientiously. They finished on time, and the process worked very smoothly.

We used our pickup truck and an attached 4 x 8" trailer, so this was not quite as easy as loading a container or box truck. They used blankets we provided, and our straps to secure the loads. It took more than one trip. The new location was only about 5 minutes away. So Harry thought it would be better and save time and money to make several trips, rather than to have to try to finesse all the items together in one trip. We definitely agreed.

They had to carry everything up to the third floor on steep steps, and the stairway was somewhat narrow toward the top, and there were several turns. They navigated all that and everything arrived safely.

One of our items was too large to fit up the stairway, but I think that was our fault for not measuring properly before hand. He said that had never happened before. Sorry, guys! I didn't realize the narrowness of the stairway...I was going by my memory, and I had looked at the apartment about a month before. (The move was delayed partly due to the pandemic.) They were very good about trying and kept calm. They took it back for us and set it back up again, with no problems. (We have not sold our house yet, so that worked for us, but I would recommend that anyone measure carefully any large items ahead of time and make a plan for how to get it into it's new location. That could have saved a lot of time and effort. This was a large entertainment center that came apart in two sections, but with the turns in the stairway, I think it was just not possible. The movers tried their best to accommodate us even so.)

We were so thankful to have their help! We could have never done this move without them! We would definitely recommend them to anyone, and will not hesitate to use them again! Thanks Harry and Chris!

The helpers did show up a little date due to someone calling out, but Kennith kept us updated on expected arrival. When they got to our place, they made very quick work of getting our stuff efficiently and tightly packed in the moving trailer. They were careful with our belongings, even with two flights of stairs and a rather hot day. I would use them again and won’t hesitate to recommend them to friends who are moving!
