We couldn’t have asked for two better helpers than Tyler and Justin. Polite, capable, friendly, patient and accommodating. The two of them made a challenging day and move seem easy. I would hire them again in a minute and highly recommend them to anyone in need of competent helpers. Really could not be happier with their work.

Second time using Handy Hands Labor for help moving and I'll be using them again in the future. They showed up right on time and did an excellent job moving my furniture and belongings from an apartment into a truck, then into to a storage location in less than three hours including driving between locations. Both the guys were professional and moved with a purpose while taking care of not damaging anything. Thanks again!

I would never use again.

Mover's response:
This job was over 1 year ago and the customer was moving an office. The time for the job was way underestimated the job took 16hrs with 6 movers and I only charged them for 10hrs. It’s not our fault that they underestimated the budget for the job. Please refer to our other reviews thank you.

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.
