our movers showed up on time, got right to work and were friendly and polite. I would highly recommend them. Great communicator from the company as well. They called that morning to ask if we could move our time back an hour and it was perfectly fine with us. It allowed them time to give the customer before us excellent service and then us excellent service.

The movers were on time and were prepared for the move when they arrived. They did a very efficient job of loading and packing, maximizing the space to the fullest. Both men were professional and knowledgeable of how to do the job well. They utilized their time well and had the job completed within my time frame. I would highly recommend Lavoe Movers to anyone looking for a professional well organized team.

This was the first time we've hired any help so my experience around help is limited, however I've moved over 30 times in my life and no stranger to how it's done. In short, the work that they did was excellent. The movers were friendly, efficient, and accommodating and they were flexible the morning of the move around time which was really vital with the hiccups we had picking up the truck. The only thing I wish they had been more conscientious about was tracking mud. I know it's difficult to do with the constant in and out, but both area rugs from the old apartment and carpet in the new place now need to be cleaned which I feel like shouldn't happen when using professionals.

I hired three movers for four hours. They were on time, respectful of my property and myself and very pleasant gentlemen to work with. They worked hard and coordinated well as a team. I would definitely hire them again.

The advance communication confirming the work was great. They showed on time and were ready to work. They had previous experienced in loading PODS, and demonstrated they knew what to do. We are storing and will be shipping very little air, they made use of virtually all available space.

We have experienced 9 major moves in the past 39 years so have a fairly good idea how long loading should take, we estimated 2-3 hours - it was completed in just over 1 hour.

Would definitely hire them again.

I had a great experience with Allstar Movers and definitely recommend their services. I had 2 movers for 2 hours to load a POD. These guys came ready to work and worked hard the full 2 hours. They were very friendly and also respectful of my home and the items they moved. They took the time to take off a door and handrail so my couch or walls weren’t damaged (they also put door/handrail back on :). I greatly appreciate their teamwork and how they were able to pack my POD and fit everything in. I really thought I was going to have to order another POD! Thanks again Allstar Movers!!!
