The movers were supposed to arrive between 9 and 10 am. I called at 10:05 to see where they were and was told one of the movers had a flat tire (Not sure why they didn't call to let me know sooner?) They ended up not being able to come because of this, so I called and cancelled.
Rob &Billy arrived and they got right to work. Very organized! The truck was packed in no time. 6 room apartment + alot of basement boxes done in three hours! They made quick work when taking my washer & dryer & other large furniture up a narrow staircase. Nothing was damaged or broken! I would definitely recommend & use the…Read Morem again!

Workers were pleasant and appeared to be working hard but had serious problems with the move. - 1 mover didn't show on time. The company insisted I hard to start with two movers despite the fact that the other mover wouldn't arrive for an hour (which would still be in my expect window) and had to pay for that hour - They did…Read Moren't show with plastic wrap or dollies or other equipment promised - They were much smaller / slower than any other movers I've used - 3 pieces of furniture were damaged - The damage could have been prevented if they'd used the moving blankets I provided but they didn't. Under no circumstances could I recommend this company or use them again.
Arrived an hour and 15 minutes late, but I can't know if that's because they were held up at their last job or overbooked or what. Despite the late arrival and my subsequent natural concern - I only had my U-Haul Truck booked for a few hours that day - once they arrived, Robert and Billy were great. They got to work as soon as t…Read Morehey arrived, were wicked nice, and took care with all my belongings. They even moved my unpacked TV by putting in the trunk of their car to make sure it didn't get broken during the move. And they did this all on a hot and humid August day with a smile on their faces.
They showed up a half hour late, but worked very hard for two hours. they loaded a Old Dominion 28 foot truck with furniture. When we got to Florida approx 90% of the furniture was damaged.They did not pack the furniture tight enough. All the furniture moved, and even with moving blankets supplied by us, it rubbed enough to put …Read Moreholes in the blankets and damage the furniture. It just wasn't packed tight and secureShow Response
Hi, we packed everything as tight and secure as possible as you needed it to be.. The driver of the Old Dominion truck gave specific instructions, Not to touch the boards with clamps. The driver is the one at fault for not clamping the boards good enough. We never had any citation like this in our years of moving. Especially if we knew you were going on a long travel. We are definitely not responsible for the items damaged during travel, and we hope is well in Florida.

Andrew was great! He communicated well the day before and the day of to let us know his timing and estimated time of arrival. I appreciated his phone calls and status updates. He was very professional and friendly and had a good team with him. They did not bring equipment with them that might have helped with some of the pie…Read Moreces we had said we had - such as straps or a dolly for the piano. But, they worked really hard, particularly Andrew. He had one guy with him who seemed new and cautious, so Andrew often stepped in to pick up that guys concern and get the job done. I would use Andrew again for sure and his team. He stopped right at the expected time and let us decide if we wanted them to continue 'beyond the hours we had booked' or not. He did not make assumptions, but communicated well with us. I would recommend him and his team.
They worked hard, nimbly carried our large furniture up a small spiral staircase without scratching the walls one bit. Simply amazing! They were also delightful to work with. I would absolutely call them again. Andrew Thyme is a wonderful person to work with and a very good manager.
I wasn't sure things were going to work out when Andrew called to say that they were delaying their arrival BUT, I was TOTALLY WRONG. Andrew and Bill kept good communication up until our move date, arrived when they said they would, and got straight to work. My husband and I could NEVER have done the move without them. Andrew wa…Read Mores also extremely conscientious about finishing after 2 hours so we wouldn't need to extend the job. They were friendly and careful with our belongings and worked without a break! Thank you!
They were incredibly quick and efficient. They took proper care of the items and I would definitely hire them again. The only reason I would not give 5 stars is that we had to monitor a bit how they piled boxes so nothing got crushed.
Andrew and Billy of Pleasant Moving did an excellent job helping me move; they were punctual, efficient, hard working, and professional throughout the whole process. I would definitely recommend them to anyone considering moving, and I would use them again in the future.
Andrew and his crew were prompt, efficient, and thorough. I appreciated the ease of contact and flexibility with scheduling. When it came time to moving a 350 lb bathtub up a flight of stairs, Pleasant did a great job protecting woodwork and flooring. They very carefully executed the move.
I hired three men to unload a storage unit and load a moving truck for an out-of-state move. Andrew and the crew arrived on time and promptly got to work. They worked hard and completed the job within the estimated time. The men were friendly, helpful, and respected my belongings. They had all the additional tools (tape, ropes, …Read Moreetc) needed to do the job. I highly recommend them. Pleasant Moving of Boston truly made the experience pleasant!
they showed up in the time frame they told me but with three guys instead of two which wasn't a big deal to me because they got it done an hour earlier so the price was the same it really worked out better they worked non stop took the beds apart and back together in the new apartment all in all I would recommend them to family …Read Moreor friends
These guys were great. They got our move done fast and we had some big items to move in small stairways, so I was impressed. They were careful with our appliances and furniture not to damage them. I hired them for 3 hours and they were done in just over 2 hours. They were almost an hour late showing up, but made up for it by get…Read Moreting things moved quickly. I would use them again and will recommend them to friends.
Super late...That being said stayed in reasonable communication, albeit several we'll be there in an hour turning into 4 hours. They sent a free truck to help out since i missed my uhaul. $306 and I get these guys work really hard for a living but come one. Extra to hoist a bedframe and reminding me to add gratuity and they w…Read Moreanted me to pay more for a guy who came to help get the job done faster. I guess here they could have earned a few extra points by offering to do it for free instead of adding money in light of the super lateness. I worked it out and negotiated and on the whole once they got here they did a super fast job. They were superhuman strength in terms of moving, They Hauled! Really nice people too. They got the job done in record time. I would definitely recommend them!
An absolutely wonderful experience! Pleasant Movers arrived on time, were "pleasant", worked hard and made the move of our furniture from the 2nd floor to the basement easy. We had some issues with the sizes of some of the pieces and they helped us find the solution to fit through some small doorways. We would totally recommend …Read Morethem and use them again!
I was very pleased with the work done by the men from Pleasant Moving! They called the morning of my move to suggest that instead of hiring 2 men for 3 hours, I take 3 men for 2 hours, which made their job easier and also saved me $40! They packed everything into my moving truck quickly and carefully, and they were very gentle…Read More with my antique furniture. I would absolutely recommend them to others!
These guys were efficient and professional. They unloaded my uhaul trailer way faster than I thought it would take. They even moved a couch up 3 floors of stairs with 1 inch of clearance between the railing, couch leg, and ceiling with it standing on end. They didn't even touch the ceiling or walls at any point during the move a…Read Morend nothing was damaged. Best money I ever spent. It would have taken me days to unload it myself and I probably never would have gotten the couch up those floors even with help from friends. A+. I will use them again if I move again in Boston!
We were very happy with Pleasant Moving. They unloaded a pod at our new house. They were easy to get a hold of by phone and called a few times to make sure we knew exactly when they would arrive within the estimated time frame. They were very courteous and friendly and made sure they knew where we wanted everything. They were ve…Read Morery careful with all our belongings, too. It's hard to believe how much Andrew and Robert got done in 2 hrs! I would definitely use them again or recommend them to friends.
t is shameful that I, the customer, had to call HireAHelper to tell them that Pleasant Moving cancelled my move because they “don’t go to NH”. It has been clearly stated in the order and in phone conversation where I am moving to. Meanwhile, I spoke at length with Andrew Thyme 3 weeks before the move and confirmed all of the…Read More logistics with him. He even assessed my needs and told me how many blankets and other supplies I’d need. Then, he waits until less than 24 hours before my move to tell me he won’t be doing it. He told me he called HireAHelper to tell them—yet, when I called, 45 minutes later (after a meeting) they had not heard from Andrew. Andrew lied to me 3 weeks ago when he said we were all set, he lied again to me <24 hours before my move. His website says “local and long distance” moves—Where I’m going in NH is a suburb of Boston, <45 miles away. Not that you will take my advice, but I would not do business with him; he gives your company a bad name. On a very positive note, when I called to check the status (and apparently be the one to tell HAH that Andrew backed out), I was greeted with a calm, reassuring person (so sorry I did not write her name down!!!) who promised to get me new movers and that she would call back within the hour. She called back within 5 minutes and had a new team booked for me! Thank you for such a quick, effective response! Remaining a little skeptical until the move is completed tomorrow, but at least I know HAH is responsive should there be an issue.Show Response
We spoke with you around the time the job was accepted and was unaware that you were moving to New Hampshire. We had labor only jobs in Boston that day in which your job got confused with another job. Hire a Helper knows we do in state moves only and on our website long distance moves are still in state only. We called and made sure it was enough time for Hire a Helper to get you another crew which they did. We have no reason to lie about our services. We did/do apologize for any inconvenience.

Pleasant movers of Boston were actually extremely pleasant! They were extra nice, they did an excellent job, took good care of our stuff and were very efficient! I would recommend them 100./.! They were on time, prepared for the job and had a great attitude I would definitely use them again!
I scheduled a moving job for Saturday, March 2, 2013@ 10:00AM What a disaster! I could not contact anyone from the assigned company in Boston until 2 Days before the scheduled job. When I did receive a call from them I was told the time of the job was Changed from 10:00AM to between 12 & 1:00 PM. It gets worse. As 1:00 approach…Read Moreed I became concerned and contacted the number I was given. I was told that the morning job was running longer than expected because upon arrival they realized the job was a 3 story home and not a 2 story home as was originally stated. Result - I was told they would be 1-2 hours later than scheduled for my appointment Hello - you couldn't have the decency of a phone call to advise me of the delay? I had to call you! This is a hell of a way to run a bussiness. I had a 4 hour trip to NY, with workers waiting there for us to arrive. Obviously, you and you assigned workers could care less. Your company an extremely poor rating based on your unprofessional demeanor, blatant disregard for your customers and lack of interest whatsoever in assisting after your screwup! I hope potential future customers read this review and move on to the next company for more professional response.Your company is a total waste. Have a great day and thanks for making my move a real disaster!Show Response
Hi Collen, We apologize for any inconvenience. First off we have our own schedule aside from hire a helper. We called and notified you that we only had the times between 12:00 pm.-1:00 pm. to start which you agreed to. On the day of your move, you were called and left a message before noon about the delay. We do not operated in an unprofessional manner as you can see in our reviews. Again we do apologize, but you were notified of the delay and you choose to cancel. Hope all is well.

This is the second time I've used Pleasant Moving of Boston and I was just as impressed as the first time. Andrew is great to work with. He and his movers are dependable (and on time!), efficient, friendly, respectful to the property and my moving needs.

Pleasant Moving of Boston were right on time for the job. They were prepared and ready to do the job. They were proficient at moving our furniture and things out of the house and packing them into the truck. They were careful with all of our things. We definitely would use them again..
Pleasant Moving is exactly what the name indicates. We hired them two people for two hours. They showed up right on time, with a truck, and all the moving supplies. We realized that morning that some items had to go to a different location due to space limitations. They were very accomodating and had no issues making a second st…Read Moreop. During the move, they took very good care of our items, making sure nothing was damaged or lost. This was by far the least stressful move I have ever experienced. Everything was done quickly, efficiently, and with care. Even with the extra stop we finished in two and a half hours. Professionalism and excellence! Five stars!!! Thank you Andrew and Pleasant Movers!
Hello, My review for Pleasant Moving of Boston. They were excellent. They were early, they worked hard and they were friendly but professional. It was a good experience and worth the money. I would use them again. Regards, Chamain Kissoon
These guys were just awesome. I was able to schedule a last minute move, they were prompt in reaching out to to me to confirm the date, time and go over the details. They were on time, courteous, professional, efficient and their prices were reasonable. I would definitely use these guys again and recommend them to my…Read More friends!
Honestly, these folks were not on time (more like 40 mins. late), and the move took quite a bit of time costing a significant amount more of money. I will say that these folks worked hard, but were quite slow. I hired quicker more cost-efficient movers and am not sure if I will go this route again-Show Response
Hi Tiffiny, well in your circumstances you changed the time on your move which set back our scheduling, which was the reason for the delay. Also with the amount of items you had along with the long walk to the truck, you should have went with three men. We worked non stop on your move and made sure nothing was damaged. Well we hope all is well and feel free to contact me if you want to discuss more. Thanks. Andrew

The guys were awesome! They arrived on time, moved the truck to the best position and worked really hard (some of my boxes were heavy). They were considerate at all times AND got the job done in the allotted time. Would DEFINITELY recommend them!
They took less than 30 minutes to unload a 17-foot UHaul truck. Even more impressive, their staff never had any piece of furniture touch the wall. They moved about 20 boxes, couch, chair, bed, bedframe, art, fragile wooden furniture - all with great ease and ability. They were on-time and professional, and most definitely…Read More prepared for the job. I would use them again in a minute. And recommend them strongly to anyone.
Andrew and the guys were awesome. They work so hard. Moved everything where they were asked and removed things to different location at unloading site to different spots when this home owner could not make up mind to where she wanted things. I was less than ready and guys were always respectful and polite. Thank you so much!…Read More You guys ROCK!
I hired Pleasant Moving (4 movers for 2 hours) to load and unload one of those storage units I had in my driveway. We didn't get off to a great start. I left a couple of messages prior to the move and didn't hear back. It was labor day weekend so I knew they were busy with back to college moves here in Boston area. I did get…Read More concerned the morning of the first job to load the storage unit. Still hadn't heard from anyone, so I called Hire a Helper who immediately got in touch with the movers. About 1/2 later I received a call. I was told that they wouldn't be able to get to job at the scheduled time because of schedule conflict. Moving to a later time did not work for me because I had to get my girls off the bus at our new home (first day of school). To Pleasant Movers credit, they were flexible to rescheduling til the next day. Made it a little more hectic for me, but manageable since the storage unit wasn't going anywhere. The next day they called in the morning while in route. Job was supposed to start at 10....they were 1/2 late. I will say that first impression of these guys was a little intimidating. They don't come dressed in a professional uniform (ie. tshirt that advertises their company) or arrive in a company vehicle. But if you can get past that, you will be very pleased!!! They were extremely professional and worked hard. I mean they were non-stop!!!! My two hour window was aggressive, they went a little over but not for any reason other than it was a lot of work. I was ill prepared in terms of furniture pads, but Alex made some suggestions and I made a quick run to Home Depot. He worked with whatever I provided to ensure the furniture was protected. It was also pouring rain at one point, but you wouldn't have known it with these guys.. They didn't flinch!! They loaded that storage unit in an organized manner with not one inch to spare! After the loading, I worked with the same crew at my new home. They unloaded all the furniture, assembled everything, and cleaned up after themselves. They took good care of my furniture and definately aimed to do a good job. I was very pleased with their services. They only reason I didn't give them a 5 was because of the timeliness. But I would definately work with them again!!! Thank you to Hire A Helper and Pleasant Moving for a successful move!
Pleasant Moving of Boston was absolutely out of this world! They didn't balk at the items I needed them to move, and they didn't take issue with the fact that I was less-than-ready for the move. They took charge, moved smaller items out of the way in order to access the larger, heavier items I needed them to move. They worked…Read More tirelessly and non-stop.They were on time, ready for the task at hand, and worked so hard. They were respectful of my possessions and carried multiple boxes at once. It was as if I had rubbed a lamp and a genie appeared who made my move happen quickly and (to me) effortlessly. I will recommend this moving company to anyone and everyone I know. I cannot sing their praises enough. And so, I am appreciative to HireAHelper, as well, because if it were not for them, I would not have contracted with Pleasant Moving. Bravo to both companies for a job well done! J. Herron
They were the best movers I've ever had! Very friendly and everything. I had a wardrobe that would not fit and they took the time to disassemble it for me and take care of it no problem. They also arrived on time despite my early move which was at 7am. Would definitely recommend them to anyone!
Pleasant Moving of Boston was absolutely wonderful - they arrived on time, treated my belongings with the utmost respect, worked diligently, efficiently, and quickly to move all of my belongings into my apartment, and finished ahead of well-ahead of schedule. They were incredibly professional as well as likeable. When I am rea…Read Moredy to move again, there is no doubt that I will call Pleasant Moving of Boston again, and I highly recommend them to anyone looking for top-notch service at an affordable price! Thanks!
Pleasant Moving certainly lived up to their name. Not only did they arrive on time,but were in constant communication as to when they would arrive. Upon arrival, they immediately went to work.

They handled all of the furn…Read Moreiture as if it were their own, carefully moving through doorways to ensure nothing was harmed. Conversation with them was always respectful and courteous. I would highly recommend them and would assuredly hire them again. Thanks guys for a great job, well done.
The only problem with Pleasant Moving was that they were over an hour late. This might have been okay but what was a beautiful day turned into a horrible thunderstorm within that hour. I would recommend booking far in advance and scheduling them for very early in the day. I believe that I was their last job of the day and they c…Read Moreouldn't come on time because other people kept them longer throughout the day. They were very prepared for the job and came to work. They worked very hard. The entire time I thought that they were not paying attention to all of the writing on the boxes (ie FRAGILE). I was very concerned that everything would be broken when I finished my move. When I unpacked I saw that they had placed everything perfectly and more things were broken in my car than in the moving truck. One table did have a hole in it, but it was crappy IKEA. I would recommend getting some furniture protectors. I would use them again but I would have them arrive very early.
The movers were late because the previous job was much larger than they expected. They brought a third person in, without charge. They were very efficient in getting the items out of the house as well as careful with the items they were carrying. I would highly recommend them again. As a matter of fact, the items they moved …Read Morewent into a storage unit. When it is time for these items to be moved, I will definitely call them back. P. Maggio Chelmsford, MA
These guys made me pick a specific window and then called when they were on their way, which was OK. I prefer an exact time to a window. They worked hard and quickly...but they were also kind of "plopping" the boxes. You know, not lowering them all the way down...getting to knee height and then dropping them. My boxes marked…Read More "Super Fragile" and "Fragile Glass" ended up on the bottom on off the boxes! They actually left a few things in the truck and then brought one upstairs fishing for a tip.

I used Pleasant Moving of Boston to help my wife and I move out of a two bedroom apartment. They showed up early and were extremely polite. They assessed everything that needed to fit in the truck and did a great job packing it. They worked really hard for the full two hours. I would definitely use them again and recommend them …Read Moreto my family and friends.
Pleasant Moving of Boston exceeded our expectations. The arrived on time with everything needed. Andrew was very professional and a pleasure to work with. They worked quickly but carefully. I wouldn't hesitate to use them again or to recommend them to a friend or family member. They were great!!!
If I could give more than five stars I would...these two guys were something else.

I could not have asked for more professional, friendly, and efficient movers..will definitely be calling Andrew and Robert again for my next move - and you should too!
After hearing all kinds of horror stories about careless movers, I was surprised that the packing/loading was the LEAST stressful part of our move. I could not be happier with Pleasant Movers. The guys were courteous, professional, thorough, and motivated. They didn't dawdle in order to charge us for more labor. They were ve…Read Morery experienced, and thus were able to pack everything without having their hands held, but were also not afraid to ask us any questions about packing any of our belongings. They were able to provide us with the packing supplies we lacked, and did not charge us preposterous amounts for them. If I ever move back to Boston, these guys will be first on my list. HIGHLY recommended.
The 2 men from Hire a Helper were really good workers. Both men took the job seriously,on time, proper tools of the trade, extremely careful lifting and moving the furniture and best of all they did'nt have an attitude.They were extremely polite and willing to do want ever needed to be done.I would hire them again.
This was about as pleasant an experience as moving can be! They were couteous and personable, showed appropriate (and sometimes even surprising) levels of concern for my stuff, and were very efficient and hard-working. I would definitely use them again, and have even recommended them to my parents for their upcoming move!
They made it easy and simple to move, I like how they took the time to wrap each thing so it was not scratched or broken. Everything was handled with care. I only wish the speed of service was a little faster as I was on a time crunch. But other than that I loved the service and would recommend them to others and use them again …Read Morewhen I move.

Pleasant Moving was great! These two men worked quickly and efficiently. They also came to my home with a great attitude. i am so thankful to them for getting me all moved into my new space. I would certainly recommend them to anyone who may need a helping hand while moving.
The movers were efficient, careful and pleasant. Everything went smoothly and I would highly recommend them. We were called early the morning of the move to alert us that they would be 1 hour late. One of the movers had understood the wrong start time. They were very apologetic, and did a great job once they arrived.

Andrew and Robert were very efficient. They know what they are doing. We had quite a few large pieces and a lot of tight corners. They did a great job of negotiating all the tight turns. They were both very polite and easy to get along with. I would definitely use them again.
Andrew and Robert were very efficient and friendly. The only criticism I have is that I wish they would have told me at the beginning how much time they thought it would take. I was under the impression (delusion?) that it would only take two hours, but they were there for over 4 1/2 hours. It was my experience with moving, but …Read Moreagain, it would have been nice if they would have said at the beginning that it would take over twice as long. Thanks guys for the help. You were fantastic!
great group of guys came over and had our entire truck unloaded within 45 minutes.

I would highly recommend these guys---hire a helper is the BEST idea for anyone moving!!!!
Andrew, Andre & Robert were all very professional & courteous. I hired 2 men for 4hrs for what should have been a 3 man job & took 10.5hrs I'm not a good estimator apparently...lol..
