The three gentlemen who packed our two Pods were absolutely wonderful. Hard working, friendly, cooperative, quick, efficient, professional and kind. Their great work and positive attitudes definitely reduced my stress. Thank you so much!!! God bless you!
The men worked very efficiently as a team (2 of them). Over the phone when booking, I was told a 16ft pod usually takes 3 hrs to load, but they didn’t go a minute over 2 hours and it was very tightly packed. Great work. We’ve also moved a lot and have never seen a company show greater care for our things.
These men worked very hard to be efficient with our load. We didn’t have many boxes or “easy shapes” to pack, but they made all the awkwardly shaped things fit really well. We have moved many times and they noticeably showed greater care for our belongings than any movers we’ve had.
These guys were AWESOME!!! We are requesting them again in two weeks to move us into our new home. Hard working doesn’t do them justice. I’ve never seen anything like it. They worked awesome together and really took care of our belongings. Highly highly recommend!! Awesome personalities! Thanks again Dameon, Ricky, Mills …Read More& Damien!
It was a 100 degree day and they worked in the sweltering heat to get the job done on time. There were a lot of odds and ends which should have made it challenging to get the items placed but they made it work. They were rockstars.
The (2) guys who came out were on time and worked very hard. They did have trouble getting our couches out of the basement and scraped a good portion of the wall and the couches in the process. Can't ascertain the damage on the couch until we get it out of the U-Box storage. Both were extremely polite and worked non-stop on a VE…Read MoreRY hot day!
These guys did a wonderful job! They were on time. Polite. Didn’t ding/scratch anything. Packed the truck very carefully. Wrapped and used padding. Would recommend them and use them again. They are a family business and great!
The workers were on time and did a phenomenal job. However I had booked for 4 hours of work and the workers finished in 2 hours. Since there was no prorated time I wanted the workers to fill the remaining time moving items to prepare for the next pod. At which point I was told they had called it in and were scheduled for anot…Read Moreher job. That aspect of service was a disappointment. If the companies policy is not to refund or credit unused time, then the workers should have been working for me until the time up.
PODS makes it clear on its website that furniture and heavy objects are to be tied to the sides of the POD with rope. I bought THREE different types of rope for the crew to use and asked them SEVERAL TIMES to secure my furniture in the POD, but they REFUSED. One of the crew members asked in a condescending way if I was a moving …Read Moreprofessional. I had also bought a moving blanket for a large wicker chair and asked the crew to wrap the chair before bringing it downstairs to load. But when the chair was put in the POD, the moving blanket was still sitting on the chair seat. The crew was unhappy at my request to take the chair out of the POD and wrap it in the blanket, and then gave me a hard time about securing the blanket with stretch wrap, which I also provided. The crew was in SUCH A HURRY to finish the job -- it only took them an hour even though I had pre-paid for two hours -- that the POD was loaded in a VERY slapdash manner with a bicycle thrown sideways on the top. Disaster in the making! Sure enough, when the POD arrived at my destination, a heavy piece of furniture had fallen forward onto a box, smashing it completely. Nope, I'd never, ever, ever use them again.
This is the second time I've gone with S&L Express Moving Services, and I cannot say how happy I am with their service. They're professional, courteous, and hard working. They were able to load up my truck and unload it at my new place with time to spare. My new condo doesn't have an elevator, but the two movers did not comp…Read Morelain once about having to go up three flights of stairs with my stuff. They kept a positive attitude the entire time. If I move again, I will 100% use this company.
Trent and Daris arrived on time and they did a great job. They worked so hard to fit everything into the POD. No rope was needed because they had it packed so tightly. They were careful not to break anything. I would definitely use S & L again.
I hired 2 workers for 4 hours. They arrived on time and reviewed what I needed them to do. They worked very hard and asked intelligent questions if they weren't sure what was expected of them. They did an excellent job - very respectful of my possessions. I would definitely use them again!

Dominican, Dominic we're fantastic couldn't ask for a better helpers would recommend them for any moving job. We're polite courteous and did not want us to really help. They felt it was their job to move everything two great guys would work with them again.
We checked the reviews for picking a company to do our packing. S in L got such good reviews we decided to use them. They were right on time and did amazing job. I keep wondering how they were going to get all my furniture in that pod. They packed it perfect. The two guys what constantly for the two hours and completed the jo…Read Moreb. Very pleased with them and would definitely use their services again .
The two guys who helped us load our POD were great! I really appreciated their professionalism and the fact that they were so thorough and efficient at loading my family’s belongings. I’d definitely use S&L Moving Services again
Previous experiences with this company were great, but this one was not. We booked two movers for four hours, as previously it took two movers three hours to complete our move; however, the entire move took seven hours. I’m not sure why that was the case; it’s possible we should have booked more movers. The movers had a good att…Read Moreitude about what was most certainly a difficult and demanding move; however, they were a little careless with our goods and the move. We clearly marked boxes with the room they should go to and explained it to them, but many items went to the wrong room, which has been a process to sort things out. In addition, the movers damaged the walls of the apartment we moved out of, and we have filed a claim with hireahelper.com
Daris and Dominique were professional, courteous, hard working and smart in their approach to my move. They patiently answered my questions and explained why they packed the POD the way they did. I highly recommend S&L Express Moving. From the initial outreach right thru to the day of move, they were prompt, responsive and help…Read Moreful.
I used them to pack up my pods and had absolutely no issues, I used them today to unpack the pods and it was a nightmare.

I will be calling to complain , would be nice to compensate for the damages.
I had to file a claim for damaged furniture. The corner of my dining table was shattered and paint scuffs from the wall on the side of my bedroom furniture. They were on time, but not prepared. They did not have the disassembly and assembly tools needed even though I had requested and called ahead and asked if they'd be provided…Read More. They needed direction and guidance on how to move and I did not feel my property and goods were taken care of. We were tight on time and took longer than expected considering I was moving within the same apartment complex. Not everything was able to be completed before the 2 hour time mark. I noticed damages after they had left. I had higher expectations based on all the other positive reviews and would not use again.Show Response
Your claim was resolved and you received $129.99. No company is immune from damages, mistakes happen and the corner of the table was the only thing damaged, this is what insurance is for. AND you did NOT have any equipment listed on your order. If you needed additional equipment, it would have been ordered and added to your order at an additional charge. Tools, Dollies, etc are all additional charges and was NOT on your order. If its not on our order when we are dispatched out, we don't go to the warehouse to get them. Please review your invoice.

These two gentlemen were amazing! They were on time, introduced themselves in a professional yet friendly manner and were all about business. They asked me to review my expectations, then walked through the house discussing what they would move and what I could be doing to prepare for moving the lesser items (boxes I was still p…Read Moreacking). When I didn't finish, they pitched in and helped never complaining. They were fast, strong, carrying several boxes (a lot of books) down the stairs at a time, handing everything as if it were their own. They never goofed off and worked hard the entire time. I also appreciated the reminder they gave me when I was fast approaching the end of my time (because they knew I wanted to stay within my limitations). I was amazed when they finished packing my POD. They used every bit of space making everything fit. Amazing...simply amazing. Yes, I will use them again and I have already told my sister to use them when we do her house next. Thank you for providing access to such outstanding young men.
Home renovation project is thisclose to starting. I have been working hard to prepare for contractors coming. Needed help getting heavy furniture and boxes out of the way.

Words can not express how wonderful these guys were in helping us load our trucks in a short amount of time. They were on time, professional, hard-working young men. I recommend this service to anyone and wish we would have had them longer. Thanks so much! Michele & Darrell Portz
The movers were very efficient. They had significant knowledge of the best way to pack our POD to ensure that our items would arrive safely. They were highly respectful of our property,and friendly with our children. I especially appreciated how our movers worked with one another in a calm, communicative way.
The two gentleman were very polite and we're very efficient hard workers. My only complaint was that I requested an arrival time of between 8 and 9. The boss called me right 8 and said his guys were in route and would arrive around 9. I got another call around 8:45 from one of the movers and they said they ran into traffic an…Read Mored wouldn't arrive for another hour. In spite of that I would highly recommend the gentlemen.
Both movers were good. They were polite and courteous. They got the job done right with no mess or problems. There was a table that wasn't properly wrapped in a moving blanket and probably not handled right, which got scratched significantly. Besides this, I didn't find any thing bad and would still recommend them, especially fo…Read Morer the great price.
First contact came shortly after I chose S & L and as the process to coordinate the packing played out, I received both calls and texts from the crew. I had to organize a long-distance move and they made it easy! They were flexible with the changes on "packing day" as we were all waiting for the PODS delivery. YES we will use …Read Morethem again!
The crew was not on time and I had to go get them from a nearby gas station. I did provide a Google map for the location. The two man crew was respectful and did work hard despite very cold working conditions. Nothing was broken either during loading or at the destination. A little expensive for the time remaining to load bu…Read Moret the job did get done and I couldn't have done it without them.
They worked hard and fast. There is only two concern ,they didn't use the tie down rope that I had and one of the tvs is standing on the end instead of upright , but it was cold and I thank God that they loaded the container for me.
The movers were friendly and professional. Our apartment had been flooded due to a burst pipe, and we had to move in January on a very cold day so the conditions were not great. My fiance and I had rented a Uhaul, expecting to have to make 2 trips at least. The movers were able to get all of our stuff in the Uhaul in one trip. …Read MoreThey also did a great job of getting my adjustable bed frame which is a huge challenge to move down a flight of stairs and through the narrow hallway to our new apartment. Nothing was damaged and no walls were banged up. They also were very fast, moving everything in about 3 hours. I had thought it'd be at least 4 hours. They did such a great job and made our move so much easier. They were also very affordable too, I would highly recommend them!
Folks arrived on time. Stayed on task to move some couches, help assemble a ping pong table and a couple of closets. They were courteous to open their shoes inside the house. No rush, stayed for the full 2 hours and left upon me releasing the payment through my mobile. Good job! Thank you.
Damien and Ricky were FANTASTIC! They were efficient in estimating space available on 1st attempt, careful with my furniture / boxes AND walls/ doorways, and never wasted a moment.

S&L loaded my 5000 sqft home in Long Grove into Pods, then unloaded at new home. Not a scratch on anything, everything was in same condition. They are efficient, careful, methodical company.

Sincerely, this is the best company I've ever hired.
The two gentlemen were very nice and friendly. They did a wonderful job. No scratches anywhere, everything was unloaded perfectly. They had to carry a safe upstairs through a tight stair well and mastered this task perfectly. Thank you!
They did a great job and totally knocked it out of the park! I'd certainly use them again. They worked hard, were very careful when wrapping and moving our furniture, and they did a masterful job of packing the PODS. Plus, they worked an extra hour. We really appreciated their help.
It is difficult to rate when you have a team of four with varying work ethic. One guy was polite, courteous and hardworking. Another guy had an attitude problem. Another was looking for shortcuts. I had multiple issues with the quality of care I received. Packing was poor, directions were half followed, several things were left…Read More behind and some things were even hidden in areas adjacent to the section that I asked to be cleared. Also, they arrived 40 minutes before the time I gave as my earliest availability causing me to pay for 10 minutes of them waiting for me to arrive. I will not hire them again and plan to use a different company to complete the job.
Oh my goash I cannot explain how GREAT these helpers were that came to the house. They were prepared, ready and moved quickly. They were very respectful and wanted to make sure my PODS were filled to the max. Very efficient and nice. I would recommend them to anyone!
Outstanding job! They called to confirm when this booking was made and also called the day of the move. They were on time. Literally to the minute. They worked so incredibly hard and fast, I was amazed that they got the job done in the 2 hours that I booked. I really appreciated that they didn't slow down to try to add that ex…Read Moretra hour.

These guys did a great job! I was amazed they were able to fit all my stuff in the one trailer. I am so thankful they were able to do that and they got the job done in record time.

Both movers were very professional and knew what they were doing. I had them move some additional furniture from basement and they were very careful not to bump walls nor doors.

These guys did a great job. We hired 6 people and it took 10.5 hours to pack and unpack 9 full truck loads. They never complained. As a matter of fact, if any of the guys saw me moving something by myself, they quickly offered to move it for me. I would highly recommend them!
The movers did an ok job & were nice guys overall, but not efficient with loading and they ran out of room for stuff. I was also surprised that they didn't bring any supplemental packing materials and didn't wrap anything to protect it before putting it in the storage trailer.

We don't provide furniture pads and wrapping material, the customer supplies these items. We also sent you an email advising you that you will need to provide at least 1 furniture pad per item and explained asked for them when we stared packing, you had some from the pictures I've seen, but not 1 for 1 and you had quite a few items that needed pads. When we don't have the proper material to work with it can be a bit challenging to pack the container and there is a definite possibly of damage dur

The two men arrived on time and were very professional and efficient. They were experienced and had a good sense of humor. They made moving a positive experience as opposed to it being a stressful time. I recommend S &L for all your moving needs
These guys were amazing. The amount of stuff they fit in our truck was unbelievable. We would have never been able to do it without them. We moved across the country and not a single thing was damaged. They showed up right on time and finished the work early. Ask for Damien and Damien, they are the best.
The two gentleman that helped me moved were amazing. It was up 3 flights of stairs in the 90 degree weather and they came with a game plan! They were very careful with all my stuff and curtious. I would highly recommend them and use when I move again. The process was simple and easy (just what I needed after moving half way acro…Read Moress the country!) thanks!
The guys were on time and prepared. They were respectful of our items. They did a good job loading the pod, although we started out going all the way to the ceiling of the pod, and then going lower in the next segment. The guys unloading on the other end of the move pointed out that this can put a lot of weight on those botto…Read Morem boxes, so it might not be ideal to stack to the ceiling, if you don't have to. That said, all of our items arrived in good condition! Some boxes were indeed a little squished, but that's obviously more a result of our packing, which we did ourselves. We did a lot of lifting and helping with the movers (which I don't mind). I don't think we would have finished the job if we hadn't also helped move. So I don't know if the time estimate of "two movers for three hours" for our 2-bed-2-bath move on the HireAHelper website was a little optimistic, or if the location of the pod being slightly farther away impacted the time. We asked to follow the suggestions on the PODS website, to use ropes between each set of baffles in the pod, and put a mattress in as the last item next to the door. The movers didn't follow that advice, saying we didn't really need it. On the other end, after shipping, the pod did indeed have a few items shifted up against the door, which made it tricky to get the door open, and some of our items had shifted around inside the pod. It looked a bit jumbled when we first opened it. But overall, they did do a good job of loading the pod, probably better than I could have done or at least much faster, and as I said, all of our stuff arrived nearly 100% intact. Also, I appreciate the advice from the movers on the phone ahead of time to be sure to get lots of furniture blankets. We did, and they were very effective. I would probably use these movers again, thank you!
