The movers were very professional and just happed to be the same gentlemen that packed up our home about a month earlier. They arrived right on time and called 30 mins prior to their arrival so we could meet them at the storage place. They had their own hand trucks and had the job finished much faster than we anticipated. I woul…Read Mored definitely use them a third time.
The guys at Moving Texas did a fantastic job! I didn't feel like they were stretching the clock, which I have experienced with other movers. They were kind, on time, thorough and listened to my concerns/questions. I will definitely call Moving Texas in 6 months when we move again.
The guys who helped us with our move were friendly and on-time, however they did not secure our items properly. Even with us having two canisters of straps and requesting that they be used, not a single one was used, as you'll see in the video. Because of this, we had a lot of shifting and damaged items. Also, we requested to ha…Read Moreve furniture wrapped in either blankets or plastic, both of which were provided. Neither the plastic nor the blankets we supplied were used effectively as our mattress was not covered and is not filthy from the move, among other issues. The plastic was not used at all. While it's nothing personal whatsoever, I would not use this moving service again, and I think it's important for other customers considering this team to know. I've had very successful moves in the past, and unfortunately, this one was the worst we've experienced as we easily lost a few hundred dollars in goods and should have just done it ourselves. Here is a link to a video I made upon opening our Pod, which was so jammed because of shifted items, it took us about 15 minutes to get into. Note: I'd rather not post the video publicly, but I do have it uploaded if someone with the company would like to see it. Reach out to me, and I'll send you the link.
I used Moving Texas to load various furniture items and boxes into a portable storage unit. They were able to start early and get done in the allotted time. They did a good job loading up everything that I asked them to load. I did however wish they had used more of the moving blankets I provided for my antique furniture.
Booked them to assist with our load of a 26 foot yellow-truck. Hired a two-man crew for six hours total. Had some trouble getting the correct size/quality moving truck, and asked them to arrive a little later than planned. They were flexible on the start time, which I appreciated. They were on time. They were exceptionally …Read Morecheerful and pleasant from the first handshake to the final farewell. Their positive attitude really made this one of the most pleasant moves. I have moved many times, and am very particular about how the truck was loaded. They followed my instructions to the letter. We had vintage mahogany parquet floors, so no hand carts or dollies could be used in the house. Everything had to be hand carried to the kitchen and then transported via hand-cart to me in the truck. They did this without a single complaint. I also had some very heavy items in the garage that they handled without incident: large rolling toolbox, solid wood workbench, five-drawer vertical file cabinet. They were incredibly careful with all of our items. Not a single item was dropped or otherwise mishandled. I have used Hire a Helper four times now, and they were hands down the best movers I have ever used. Moving TX is the benchmark against which all other movers should be judged. Wish I could give them SIX stars. Yes, I would absolutely use Moving TX again. Excellent service!
The moving company I scheduled with cancelled on me the night before my move. I had to scramble and was very lucky to find Moving Texas, they were awesome! They were so easy to work with even under such short notice. The men who showed up were polite, friendly, very hard working and smart! They did a great job and saved me and …Read Moremy move!
Overall a good experience. They arrived over an hour late due to the job before me running over. I had no problem with that they called. I was a little disappointed that they saw damage and didn't say anything. I know they saw it because when I went out to the storage pod they had cleaned up part of it. I'm not upset about the …Read Moredamage I moved from MN to TX I expected some. But there were 2 obviously damaged items and they just brought them in. Besides that the guys were nice and respectful and worked really hard.
These guys are nice enough; but, running a customer concentric business is not their thing. Right in the middle of my move one of the two guys left without telling me to go home for more than 20 minutes. I had them prescheduled for 1:00 for two hours which they confirmed, yet after offering them an early arrival 11:30 one of t…Read Morehe two guys kept telling me he needed to go pick up his children.

Morris and his crew were wonderful. They were timely to arrive and got right to work unloading my PODS. The were courteous, friendly and very personable! I really appreciated it when they would let me know that something was damaged before they took it out of the Pod. They were so good about moving boxes or furniture aroun…Read Mored if I needed it. I would definitely recommend them to you for your moving needs!
I had called HireAHelper the evening before the move and amazingly I was able to get scheduled. I was called numerous times to let me know the status of what time the movers would be arriving. They were ready to go as soon as the arrived. They worked extremely hard and took great care of our items. I would definitely use th…Read Moreis them again.
They were on time, they were prepared for the job, and they worked hard. I would still recommend them but, they forgot to move my microwave which was on the inventory list and 2 of my items had scratches on them that were not there before the move. I am hoping I can get a wood scratch concealer and it will take care of the scrat…Read Moreches. Because of the fiasco with the other mover that I had been previously assigned to and another problem that Moving Texas had encountered on the original day of my move, they finally arrived for my move around 8:00 AM the day following my original move schedule. I did get the feeling that they were in a hurry to get the job done because they moved all of my furniture (except microwave) by 9:30 AM and seemed to be rushing a bit. I had around 11 pieces of heavy oak furniture plus a TreadClimber. And yes, I would hire them again but I would be more aware of the move as it is going on.
Morris and crew are lifesavers. We had a 16’ POD stuffed to the brim for our cross country move. We moved into a 3rd floor walkup without any elevator access (sorry guys). We hired 2 men for 3 hours but due to their high volume of moves we had a 3rd guy there helping out at no addition cost. They came on time and busted thei…Read Morer butts nonstop and had our belongings in our apt in 90 minutes. I don’t know what else to say other than ‘thank you’ to these gentlemen. They made our lives so much easier. It is well worth the money and they are top notch.
Quincy and Alec did a great job. I would recommend them highly, along with hiring Moving Texas every time. Not only did they complete the move in less time then we accounted for but they did it with a smile on their faces and made the whole thing extremely pleasant. On top of everything else Moving Texas was able to help us wi…Read Moreth only a few hours notice after our previous moving company dropped out.

Morris and his team were wonderful. Very friendly and professional, hard working, flexible and good natured.

They showed up on time and finished within the 3 hours we scheduled.We would recommend them and Moving Texas to others …Read Moreand will probably use them again when we move again next year. BIG THANKS and GREAT JOB!
They showed up at the agreed upon time with 4 men, ready to get to work. They knocked my furniture move out in a half hour. I had a heavy homemade headboard that was too big for my stairs and they managed angles I've never thought of to get it up and in place in the bedroom.would definitely recommend them for a job like this any…Read More day.
The movers did I great job: they were friendly, helpful, went through the apartment and reviewed what needed to be packed and what was staying. They were respectful and did their best to make packing and loading the truck as fun as possible. Since I have back problems, they were very helpful lifting things I cannot carry. I used…Read More the service: Hire A Helper, to book them. When I spoke to the representative on the phone, I do remember her saying that if I didn't use the helpers for the entire time (if only for 3 hours instead of 4) then I would not have to pay that last hour; however everything in print says I do have to pay that last hour - which was emailed after the phone conversation. This was a bit frustrating, but not the helpers' fault.
These guys were fantastic! Booked them the afternoon before the move without an issue after discovering the job might be too big to tackle on our own. They were on time, eager to get started, and came prepared with their own things to make the task easier. They worked quickly and still took care to make sure everything would arr…Read Moreive in one piece. Another bonus...they were absolutely hilarious! A real comedy group that kept spirits high even though the job was tough. I'd highly recommend these guys to anyone who needs quality work done at a reasonable pace. Will absolutely hire them again whenever we move next!
They showed up without any tools to take things apart so I had to borrow from my neighbor. They were totally unorganized in that they just followed each other around and 2 of them carries things I could have carried by myself. In the end they just threw things into the pod, totally ripped my $2300 mattress by throwing it on to…Read Morep of other things. I had to hire 3 workers the next morning to unload and then reload the pod in an organized manner. I can't believe I had to pay twice for that. I would never recommend them to anyone.
They were on time and worked the entire time. We did not think that they were going to be able to get everything into the two pods, but they got more into them than we thought was possible! They were also very careful with our items, communicated with us and each other about what needed to go where. They worked very well as a te…Read Moream and we appreciated seeing that. Would definitely use them again!
The movers were on time and very communicative beforehand. They worked super hard (in 100 degree heat!!) and were very respectful of all of our furniture and breakables. They also were great guys with a good sense of humor. We'd definitely use this company again!!
These guys are good! On time, professional and hard workers! I will use them on any jobs I have in Austin! Ronny Gonzalez National & International Moving Specialist Certified Moving Consultant (CMC) Registered International Mover (RIM) Certified Office & Industrial Consultant (COIC) MoveLogix LLC
The moving crew was right on time. We had already wrapped the furniture ourselves, and they worked fast and were able to load an entire 8 by 16 POD in 1.5 hours, including hauling a treadmill down from the second floor and moving a very heavy upright baby grand piano into the POD. They did a great job loading the POD - there was…Read More very little open space left. Very satisfied and would use Moving Texas again!
This was honestly my first time hiring movers to assist in a move and I will do it again in a heartbeat. The process was quite seamless through hire-a-helper and a great experience. The movers showed up early, worked fast and carefully, and were great people to work with for an afternoon. Moving Texas will be top of my list f…Read Moreor my next move. My fiance and I truly appreciated the service and help they provided. Thanks guys!
These guys are the best! They arrived on time and moved me in pouring rain, down a flight of stairs and in an hour less than expected. Very courteous, professional and worked incredibly hard. They did not break a thing and I would definitely use them again.
We were thoroughly impressed with the service we received from Morris and his team at Moving Texas. We had several people tell us that hiring a company to help us move was a waste and something we could do ourselves. And it's true - we could have, but nowhere close to the speed, efficiency of this team. We had a call telling us …Read Morethey were on their way, they arrived and promptly got to work. They were friendly, polite, and absolute hard workers. We greatly appreciated their services and would recommend this company to anyone. Thankyou Morris and team!!
This crew was excellent. The arrived early and started loading up my container right at 11am. They actually finished loading in about 30 minutes, so we didn't even need the 2 hour window. I appreciated that they were friendly, efficient, and got all of my boxes and containers out of my second floor apartment safely. I am extreme…Read Morely happy with this service and if I were still in Texas, I'd call them again.
The work was okay but not perfect. Main issue was the refrigerator which first the guy could not get the plug in, inserting some 3-5 time, the plug tight. Also said water connection wrong. I can't prove it but the plug issue, compressor burned out! And no issue with water connection when technician came out to check fridge is…Read Moresue!
I had 3 guys show up to do the work on time, and all 3 were kind, courteous and FAST! Halfway through them loading my POD for me, I already knew it was the right decision to hire them. The way they loaded all my furniture and boxes in there, there's no way I could have fathomed doing that on our own. They took direction easily, …Read Moreand were very gentle with some of my antique furniture. I definitely recommend using them.
My movers did fine. They arrived within the time window and met me where we agreed. Their small moving cart was not completely capable of doing the job, but we borrowed one from a tenant in my building. I lived on the 5th floor, so I know that made it harder because we had to pile things on the carts. They both worked hard a…Read Morend made sure they finished in under 2 hours. The guys were very friendly and did whatever I asked. They were respectful of my property. One of them had brought all the tools he needed to disassemble my bed, so that was done quickly. They were careful and polite. I would definitely use them again.
The helpers arrived at the late end of the time reserved. We were kept informed as to the time of arrival. Workers did not have all tools that might have been useful (for example, socket set and allen wrenches). They did have dollies and hand trucks. Workers were very polite and worked hard the entire time they were at our home.…Read More Two additional workers (not reserved) showed up for about 20 minutes; we're not sure who they were, or why they were here, but they were worked hard while they were here! They were very careful with our property and we would use them again!
We could not have asked for better movers. They were on time, worked very hard, handled all of our things with care. They packed the POD so well, they definitely knew what they were doing. We would recommend them to everyone. We are so grateful for the job that they did.
They arrived early, were ready to work and did a great job. They also finished early and were more than willing to assist where ever they could. They also hooked up our washer and dryer and painted some areas that were unexpectedly but unavoidable scratched. They also were flexible when my furniture delivery was delayed. …Read More I would recommend them to friends and family. Can't say enough good things about them.
Crew was very professional and friendly. Came in and got down to business. I would highly recommend using HireAHelper. Mr. Morris Franklin's crew worked very hard, and was able to dissemble all furniture that required breaking down and took all steps to protect my goods.
These guys were incredible! We had started loading our POD, but had no idea how to properly secure items. They loaded our furniture and placed the rest of our boxes. They were on time and worked as a team to get our piano, beds, HEAVY treasures loaded. We had furniture rope, pads, tape, and shrink wrap, but they knew what to do …Read Morewith it. They handled everything with care. Worth every penney!
They arrived on time and got quickly to work. They were so quick and efficient, they even finished an hour early. My only complaint is that the original estimate anticipated three hours, so even though they finished in two, I still had to pay for three.

Amazing Amazing Amazing!!! I cannot say enough about the gentlemen that helped me move in to my new place. They were hard working, prompt and considerate. I would highly recommend your service to all my friends. Next time I move, I will definitely use your service. I would give them 10 stars but your rating only goes to 5 :) Tha…Read Morenks again!!!
I was very disappointed on several fronts. It was not an easy job, but the workers worked very slowly, and wasted a lot of time. They continually checked the time, and it appeared that they planned to finish up just past two hours, in order to get paid for the extra hour. In addition, there was a major billing issue. Your compan…Read Morey billed my debit card $220. It was completely taken out of my bank account. When I called to add the extra hour (which I was already annoyed about), the issue was that my bank had issued me a new debit card with a different number, so you couldn't verify it. That's understandable. However, the solution was unacceptable., The representative cancelled the original order and billed my new debit card the total of $275 (the original $220 + $55 for the extra hour). That amount was taken out of my account immediately, but the original $220 (already taken) has yet to be refunded, and I was told it could take up to 7-10 days. That's poor service all around.
I needed help moving half of furniture from a POD container into my 2 story home and the other half from POD container into a smaller climate controlled storage unit. It was a big job and I contacted HireAHelper, who hooked me up with Moving Texas. The 2 men from Moving Texas, who helped me, were 110% perfect!!!

Morris and his partner were friendly and on-time and fast. I did have a couple of issues with where and how they placed my stuff as they loaded it inside. I asked them to put all boxes marked "kitchen" in the kitchen, all boxes marked "bedroom" in the bedroom, and then leave the rest in the living room. After they left, I saw th…Read Moreat there were many boxes labeled bedroom and kitchen that were just left in the living room near the door, so I had to move those across the house by myself (which is annoying since this is why I spent money on movers). There were also some boxes not treated with the care they should have been. In one instance, I found a tower of four boxes stacked on top of each other - the three boxes on top were clearly marked BOOKS (i.e., they were heavy), and the one on the bottom was my china that was clearly marked KITCHEN/FRAGILE. There were two pieces of china broken in that box - obviously I have no way of knowing when that happened, but common sense should dictate not stacking three boxes of books on top of a box marked fragile. Since the movers were only there for 45 minutes out of the 2 hours I had them booked for, I think they should have slowed down and taken more care in loading my belongings inside and in the proper locations. They weren't horrible, but I also probably wouldn't use them again.
Moving Texas guys were awesome to work with. The heat index was above 110 and not one complaint from any of them. They were friendly and respectful to us and our property. Prior to arriving they called to discuss what was needed to be unloaded, gave an estimated time of arrival and then called when they were 40 minutes out so …Read Morewe were always informed. Great group of guys and I would highly recommend them.
I could not have asked for a better moving experience! It was a blistering hot day, and Morris and Alex showed up on time with great attitudes. They were fast, efficient, and very strategic in the manner in which they loaded the POD. They took great care in protecting my belongings and were thoughtful enough to leave extra space…Read More with the assurance that the manner in which the items were packed would not shift and/or cause damage to any additional boxes or last minute incidentals I may need to add to the POD after they left. I misplaced a small pouch containing something that was of great value to me, and when I called to ask if they remembered seeing the item, not only did they graciously take the call while they were busy, Alex remembered the exact location of the item in the POD-what a lifesaver! I highly recommend Moving Texas. I only wish they could come move my items into my new place in Washington.
I hired them at the last minute to move me into my apartment; i had a great experience - even though I booked the morning of the move, they were available. They accommodated multiple changes in schedule on my part, and once I was ready - they had my stuff moved extremely quickly. I cannot praise them enough.
Arrived on-time, very friendly and did an amazing job packing our pod with care. We had furniture pads and tie-downs to use and they used them all to secure our furniture. After the pod was full they used the rest of the remaining time to move as much as they could from the second floor to the garage, and arranged everything to …Read Moremake moving the remaining items ourselves easier. We'll be hiring them again after this experience. Thank you!!
Morris and his team truly did a fantastic job! They arrived 15 minutes early, and finished with 30 minutes to spare. They even organized the storage space in an order that is clean and easy to sift through. I would give them 6 stars if I could. Thank you Guys!!
I would definitely recommend Moving Texas to anyone who wants professional movers with a great work ethic! Morris and Larry were on time and ready to get started. They worked quickly and efficiently, while still taking special care of all my items. I could not have been happier with their service!
Morris and team were great. They were on time and arrived prepared to get the job done. they worked hard and were respectful of my furniture and boxes. They placed the furniture and boxes in the rooms I identified and even corrected a couple items I had given the wrong destination for. I will use them again next year when I get …Read Moremy follow-on assignement.
I can't tell you how grrrrreat this company is!

They hooked everything up including our bedroom set…Read Mores. They called and gave us a heads up and were right on time. And they even worked a few minutes after with no charge to finish up the job! Doesn't get any better than that!
Unfortunately they let me know they weren't coming after I had possession of the moving truck. All was planned around having helpers @ 1pm, then they said between 2-3, then it was they couldn't make it at all. They had committed two days before so should have been more aware of their schedule.

We had selected a flexible start time when we booked their service, but the week of had tried nailing down an exact start date. They had initially said they'd show up at 11, then 12, then the day of they called and said they wouldn't make it until 3. They showed up shortly after 3. Their website said they have plastic wrap f…Read Moreor furniture included. I've used other companies that generously wrap all furniture to keep it clean and scratch free. They did not use plastic wrap, and when I asked for specific things to be wrapped were very conservative. I'm not sure if this is because they weren't aware of how other companies wrap furniture, or they were just trying to conserve space. We hired 4 workers- it was clear Morris was the lead. There were times where two of them were just standing around though, and Morris would have to give them a specific task. My last complaint was they didn't seem to be the best at utilizing space in the POD we were using. My husband was redirecting them to put things in other areas to make use of it all. Other than that, they were curteous and professional. They were hard workers and were careful with everything we had to move.
I was very pleased with Moving Texas during my son't recent move to Austin. We received a call saying the helpers were on their way from the office and then they called and said they were en route. The two men who helped us unload a trailer into an apartment were very good help. They were very punctual and polite and insisted o…Read Moren handling all of the heavy items. They said that was what we paid them for. I would use Moving Texas again should the need arise.
The movers were nice but not knowledge about how to move certain items. They were unable to get our refrigerator out of the house because they did not know how to remove the doors. They spent 30 mins trying and ate up so much of the time I had paid for.
Moving Texas was a great company to work with and I had a positive experience. They called ahead to let me know an estimated time of arrival, arrived at the time with 2 movers. They were respectful, courteous and they got the job done in about an hour. They handled the items with care and loaded the truck efficiently. I would r…Read Moreecommend them to anyone needing movers.
Moving Texas did a great job for us. They were very courteous and polite. They were patient with me while I directed exactly where I wanted all my furniture and did an amazing job. Cleaned up all the debris and put it in our garage. We will be using them again. Thanks guys!
I was very satisfied with the whole experience. First I had not used the service before and wasn't sure what I would get. The representative worked fast to find me last minute movers who showed up in less than 30 min after I accepted the bid. I was frantic because my originally scheduled movers that I had found on the Interne…Read Moret myself never called and never showed. The movers were curtious and worked really hard to get al my stuff in the pod. I was very pleased with the service and I would use them again.
They arrived within the arrival window they set, albeit near the end. They got started right away and worked hard incorporating well timed and short breaks. The obvious leader of the crew was professional and easy to work with; the helper was enthusiastic, but didn't always follow directions or look to comprehend particular movi…Read Moreng related tasks as well as I expected - I think he may be challenged by the English language.
Morris was great at keeping us informed as to when he would arrive. We were worried we had rented a truck that wouldn't hold all of our belongings. As soon as Morris and Jeremy arrived they alleviated our fears and told us to trust them to get everything in the truck and they did exactly that. Even though we lived on the secon…Read Mored floor and the temperature was over 104 Morris and Jeremy worked very hard and finished just under the 2 hours. Bravo to both of them! We definitely would recommend them.
Morris and his partner did a good job loading our 26' track. They arrived on time and pretty much worked non stopped for 4 hours. I underestimated the time and the number of helpers to book, so Morris and Co. stayed another 4 hours to finish the job. Overall, no complains on our side and everything we packed and moved came to th…Read Moree new home OK. The only one thing that probably worth mentioning is that at times it seemed like they took their time and did not rush. At some point we thought that the load will never end. Having said that, the guys have completed their job and was very responsive to our needs. I would recommend them to anybody.
they were a little bit late, but called to tell me when they would arrive. once they arrived, the movers worked hard and worked fast to get all my stuff loaded and en route. we were using a pickup truck with a short bed, so it took a couple round trips, and they were very patient and helpful. i would definitely hire these guys…Read More again!

They cancelled the DAY BEFORE our scheduled move. Fortunately, HireAHelper.com was able to find us a replacement on short notice for our cross-country move. My frustration was probably exacerbated by the fact that they were the second movers within a week to cancel on us, after being listed as available for our scheduled move da…Read Morete on the HireAHelper.com website. I don't know if this is a problem on HireAHelper's end or on the service providers' end, but it is very unprofessional, and potentially problematic. Fortunately we were not burned by the last-minute cancellation this time, but it would give me pause about booking a job with this company again.
Guys were on-time, worked hard, prepared and took care of the walls and furniture. This is the second time I've used Hire-a-helper, and both times worked out well. Both times the helpers were flexible when things came up (like rain -they said they would come back when it stopped and not just stand around on the clock). The on…Read Morely small compaint would be that they didn't load the truck in reverse order of what needed to go off first and we ended with the carpets coming off at the end and couldn't put them down easily. Other than that, things went very well.
When I made my reservation with hire a helper it was clearly communicated and documented that the moving time requested needed to be flexible, as it was based on arrival timing of my moving containers. Once I got the delivery timing I called Moving Texas, and they said they only 'took this job' because it was for a specific wind…Read Moreow (noon-1PM), which was not the case. This resulted in me needing to locate a new moving service within the same day - resulting a delayed moving experience.
Morris Franklin at Moving Texas came to my rescue when I needed to move my family at the last minute and in one day.

I couldn't have done it without them. Bravo guys. Nell Lang, out of Grapevine, Texas.
Fantastic! They brought their own dollies, were very friendly, powered through all of the heavy lifting and stairs and were very respectful of our things (which is a lot more than I can say for the company we hired to move us into our new place in Seattle). I would highly recommend this company...you wont be taking a chance.
Moving Texas was a life-saver! After hurting my back the day before we were supposed to move my graduating daughter back home, i desperately searched for help online. I found HireA Helper and Moving Texas They arrived on time and were quick and efficient. They helped us move a bed from one apartment to another and then qui…Read Moreckly loaded my daughters whole apartment into my rented moving truck in less than 2 hours! They were friendly, careful, quick and strong. I will definitely be calling on them again. I highly recommend their services!
Outstanding job! The guys took the job on short notice and arrived at just the right time. They were strong enough to move all my things and they had good teamwork, it was apparent they have worked together for quite a while, they were efficient and well coordinated. They worked hard and kept moving; they finished my job with…Read Morein the time I had allowed.
Arrived on time and started out well - good padding initially of my furniture. Their handling deteriorated over the two hour window. I suspect that they have never moved their own furniture in spite of the self-proclaimed "moving professionals" title. Padding should generally be used to keep furniture from rubbing against eac…Read Moreh other during moves and not just put on top of everything (presummable to keep dust off?). Seemed to have no concept that furniture could move in any direction during transport and then got disrespectful when suggestions were made as to how to prevent something bad from happening. However, miraculously, I must admit that my furniture did survive the move but can't honestly say is was the direct result of good packing techniques. So the end result - service was okay.
They showed up earlier than scheduled as a courtesy and did a great job dismantling two queen beds. However, I had a few issues with them. They were not on-the-ball with telecommunications, did not have any flexibility in their schedule after the job in case I needed more of their time (they had scheduled another move within a h…Read Morealf hour of mine), and they loaded items messily into a Pod. At one point, due to their messy packing job, several items (including a valuable antique chair) fell out into the parking lot, and the mover, Morris Franklin, told my friend with a back condition that it was her responsibility to put everything back into the Pod, because "Ma'am, our time is up." He told her she was being "ungrateful" in asking him for help, though I hired and pre-paid them for five hours to pack up a two-bedroom apartment, and she needed his help for about ten minutes. In other words, he was not willing to go beyond what he was paid for, even though I had tipped him generously for his work and hired him on two separate occasions to help. However, he had left no flexibility in his schedule, so he felt rushed to move onto the next job. I found Mr. Franklin's mentality to be typical of this day-in-age, only doing what one is hired for and not going the extra mile, for any reason.
They called to let me know exactly what time they would arrive the day of the move. They were quick with loading my things into the truck and did a good job taking care of my belongings at the same time. They were friendly and did exactly what I hired them for. I would use them again.
Everything was great - the guys called when there were on their way and showed up ready to work. They had all of my furniture and boxes down 3 flights of stairs and packed into a storage unit within 90 minutes and were incredibly courteous the whole time. They were careful with my stuff and even offered suggestions when it came …Read Moreto packing fragiles/valuables. Highly reccommend!
I want to say that the people I hired from Moving Texas were very helpful in unloading a pods type of unit first and then putting in our furniture in our apartment. They were very professional and did everything I asked including helping me assemble a bed frame for our bedroom. I would hire them again. Tim T. Austin Texas
I recently moved to Austin with a POD and just wanted a couple of guys to help unload. Morris from Moving Texas contacted me a couple of days ahead of time to set up a time. They arrived on time, and did a fantastic job moving all of our furniture in no time at all. Morris and one other mover (was it James? sorry I can't…Read More remember his name) were professional, courteous and most importantly did a great job. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for help loading/unloading their belongings.
