Marshall, who was our crew lead was exceptional. Very professional and courteous toward our client. Even after we experienced complications and had to extend the crew by an extra two hours, he did not complain and accomplished the job. I highly highly recommend them to anyone who needs a professional white glove crew. They will be my go to from here on out for service in the upstate NY area. Josh

Our move was not typical box moving. It was a woodworking shop with many different shaped heavy machines, sailboat, kayaks, 8x8 raft, outdoor furniture and a few sofas. It took a long time to both pack and unpack - a twelve hour day for the crew with a lot of HEAVY lifting. The crew worked steadily throughout the day and well into darkness. They were very careful with the equipment and other furnishings. The crew leader was very knowledgeable, but had to keep the others busy some of the rime since needs and approach to packing were not always anticipated by the other crew members. Some of this is to be expected since dense packing takes careful planning. They did fill the 26' truck to the top packing a very diverse set of goods.They were very respectful to each other and us. They arrived 10 minutes early ready to go. We would definitely hire them again.

They did not pack the truck or the storage facility efficiently or wisely. I had to repack the whole storage facility to get my last load in. Their was plenty of room for it all but the packing was not planned well to get all the furniture in the storage facility.

Mover's response:
The truck that was provided was too small for the job so multiple trips were necessary. With that being said you have 2 options. 1 to do the best you can with moving things into the storage unit to save time and money for the customer, or 2 move everything to storage location then pull everything out and repack the storage which would have been longer and cost the customer more money. Thank you for your business. Ok please read all reviews before passing judgement. We will always do our best to make you move go smoothly and be the most cost efficient.

All 4 guys were very respectful and helpful. I had no issues with the job they performed. My only concern was the fact that we were relatively naive in the moving process, and in reviewing the amt of furniture we had vs the largest Pod, I wish we had been steered toward getting an additional Pod. I know my daughter did go over what furniture we needed transported, and we were woefully underserved with the largest Pod. Also the job took exactly half the amount of time scheduled and I understand a minimum time, but I feel it would have been a bit more fair to refund or credit at least one hour especially since we are employing you on the other end of the move. All were pleasant, but I hope my thoughts are understood not as complaints, but as concerns. Thank you

Tyler and Eric arrived on time and ready to go. They were very receptive to some suggestions I had about best way to handle our particular job and we worked very well together to unload and safely store the entire contents of the POD within the estimated 2-hour window. They were both very careful handling all the items and engaged in pleasant conversation throughout our work together. Would highly recommend and use again in future.

The two men arrived on time and were ready to pack the PODs container I had delivered the day before. The day quickly hit a snag as the brand new bolt-cutter-resistant padlock I had purchased and placed on the empty POD the day before wouldn't open. The key ended up breaking in the lock! The two guys from Handy Hands Labor didn't waste any time though, while I was out getting a new power tool to cut the lock off, they moved most of the furniture from the house into the garage ready to fill the POD as soon as it was open. They filled the container quickly and efficiently fitting everything in with room to spare. Everything was done within two hours. I would definitely use them again should the need arise.

Mike and Daniel were awesome. On time and ready to work. Had my move done in 2 hours, even with a 45 min drive between places. Would highly recommend.
