These reviews are from past customers who booked Packed through HireAHelper. Once the job is completed, each customer has the opportunity to leave an unfiltered, uncensored rating. Service providers have an opportunity to respond to these reviews if they choose.
The guys doing the load were nice, but the job they did was sub-par. I just got my stuff unloaded on the other end, and despite me providing wrapping and padding, my furniture got scratched up a lot. They didn't really know how to properly use the plastic wrap, it seems, and some blankets and covers weren't properly secured to…Read More furniture to hold it in place during shipping (and, yes, I provided tape). I haven't gotten around to unpacking my boxes yet, but it won't surprise me to find stuff broken because of how they were stacked inside my storage container despite my "fragile" labels on boxes. The service surely could've been better. They did a lot of standing around and joking a lot as well. I feel like they didn't use their time super efficiently. I hate leaving negative reviews, but I am disappointed.
I chose this service based on the other customer reviews I read. I am very disappointed with service I received. I schedule two helpers to arrive between 3-4pm and around 3:30pm I received a call notifying me that my helpers would be an hour late. At 5:30pm my helpers still had not arrived. When I contacted them, they said they …Read Morewould text me when they were en route to my location. I was not confident that they would even show up, so I started unloading my truck with my family members that were helping. Then eventually the crew arrived at 6:20pm (original timeframe was 3-4pm) and finished at 7:20pm. I had booked them for two hours, which I would have used if they showed on time. I had to pay for two hours, even though I only used them for one. I will NOT use them again and I do NOT recommend this service.
Couldn't speak more highly of these two guys. One time, efficient and generally super friendly. They worked hard and went the extra mile to make sure all of my stuff was secure in the uhaul! Fantastic moving experience and will most definitely recomend to friends.
We used Packed for a two-day move, and overall they did a very good job and I would recommend them. We hired two movers for each day. On the first day, we got two young, professional and hard-working movers. Chris was the lead mover and he was great. They arrived a little late coming from a different job, but that's OK as we had…Read More a delay with our truck and David (company owner) was great about coordinating with Chris, who gave us updates on their progress. They were very thorough in wrapping up our furniture in blankets we provided. They did an excellent job -- worked really hard, packed the truck extremely efficiently and got the job done early. The second day went less smoothly -- apparently the crew that was supposed to come cancelled last-minute, so the crew got there about 90 minutes after the moving window we chose. The movers were two older guys, one of whom did fine and one of whom was really struggling and was taking frequent breaks, so I was providing a good deal of moving labor myself. But they worked hard, got our truck completely loaded and even worked a little after time was up to get it all done. As an average of both days, I'd give them four stars. Overall, a professional company I'd recommend, especially if you get the guys we had on day one.
The guys were nice enough and helpful, and I don't think anything was damaged (won't know until I unpack next year). But I don't think they were terribly experienced which reduced how efficient they could be. I had to take the initiative to tie a few things down and stack some things in a way that would allow everything to fit i…Read Moren the truck. It could be that they weren't used to a client who was as hands on as I was. But I was still quite satisfied. I would probably use them again.
This is the second time we have used Packed to help us move into our new apartment. They are exceptional and professional. They worked diligently and took a lot of care to ensure that our items were moved without damage. I would recommend them to family and friends. We will be definitely using their services in the future.
Highly recommended. Angel was in contact with me throughout the day of our move, updating me on when they would arrive. They arrived during the given window. Both movers worked extremely hard, going up and down 3 flights of stairs, for the entire 2 hours!! They were both extremely polite and respectful as well. Thanks for a grea…Read Moret experience!
To be clear, the three workmen who came to the site were kind, professional and hard-working. They were terrific, both fast to assist me with my POD unloading and careful with my belongings. The reason for my review being only 3 stars is because of my dealings with their manager. I had to call their store to confirm the appo…Read Moreintment day and time rather than receiving a call from them, as the Hire-A-Helper site states. Then, on the day the crew arrived, the three fellows were without the promised dolly and hand-cart, as was stated on my quote and work agreement. When this was mentioned to the lead on-site crew member, he politely apologized and said that he was not told by his supervisor to bring anything. I then asked that he call his supervisor, which he did out of my earshot, and within minutes I got a call on my cell from this supervisor. The man proceeded to be abrupt and abrasive with me, saying that if I didn't order the equipment then it was my fault, not his. He grew argumentative with me when I told him that my contract stated that (1) dolly and (1) handcart would be provided. He said I was mistaken, told me that they never bring anything unless it is ordered....and then went on to suggest that I go rent something at the hardware store for his guys to use! I put him on hold while I pulled my contract up on the computer and read off to him the exact description wherein it clearly stated that the dolly and handcart would be provided, however if I wanted additional equipment, I could do so for a nominal charge. He again aggressively argued with me, but then I offered to either forward the email with my contract or text him a screenshot of it...at which point he said, "fine, the paperwork is screwed up" and hung up. I presumed that he would then have one of the workmen go get a handcart....BUT THIS NEVER OCCURRED. The crewmen were embarrassed and apologetic for their supervisor's reaction, but they just kept trying to work without the aid of these tools and that left me feeling like I was about to get charged for any extra time that would now be needed because the work pace would be slowed without the use of the handcart and dolly. An hour into the job, I could see that the supervisor wasn't going to send any tools so I ended up borrowing one from a friend, just so that the poor crewmen could continue unloading my belongings in a safe, timely fashion. The supervisor never once called me back to apologize nor attempted to make the situation right. Meanwhile his crewmen were stellar and worked as best they could, and they were able to complete the job with just 15 minutes to spare of my quoted time ONLY BECAUSE I PROVIDED THE EQUIPMENT MYSELF. Needless to say, I felt bad for the crewmen and thanked them profusely for their service. I told them that when I left my review, it would only be because of the condescending way I was treated by their boss that I would not be able to recommend their company, which is a shame since the guys in the field were great.
I gave these guys an impossible job. i had more than shouldve fit if i was loading it up. when it comes to moving labor these guys are what you want. they did show up a little late but kept in communication of when they would be there and when they showed up they got straight to work and didnt stop until the job was done. I am h…Read Moreighly satisfied and would recommend
These guys showed up at 7:15AM. Their arrival window was 7:00-8:00AM which was supposed to be the same time as the 1800 Pack Rat unit. The unit did not show up until 9:30... However, during that time these guys got busy! They moved everything downstairs and staged it on the sidewalk (great moving weather so no worries for rai…Read Moren). They hoisted a sleeper sofa over a balcony from the third level with no issues. They had great attitudes the whole time even though the Pack Rat unit was so late. We were very prepared with our furniture wrapped and ready to lift with the exception of a few pieces that disassembled to move. They had extra blankets and wrap ready for those items. We barely had room in our 16 ft container but they made it work. I was impressed. They were done in less than an hour from the arrival of the Pack Rat unit. Thanks Packed!
David and his team showed upon time and did a great job. They worked quickly and efficiently. It was such a relief to have the help. I am so glad we found hire a helper instead of hiring a moving company - they drag their feet and waste time and money! I would def recommend them for anyone moving
Packed was fantastic! They were on time, had everything they needed to get the job done, carefully moved all of the boxes and furniture up three flights of stairs with remarkable efficiency, and the guys were pleasant while working. We had a glitch while paying (completely our fault) and they were as patient as could be. I would…Read More use them again anytime and recommend them highly.
The two guys showed up on time, were very professional. They took their time with the furniture to make sure they were careful and packed the truck perfectly so it all fit and it was very easy to unload. They were great and it was so worth it to have their help!
Packed is great -- and Reggie and Timothy did an amazing job packing up all my stuff into a 12-foot truck. There was a computer-generated mix-up with my scheduled load-up day, but David Martinez from Packed solved the issue quickly and professionally. Reggie called to let me know he and Timothy were on their way and he arrived …Read Moreright on time. They were prepared, worked their asses off, took good care of my stuff (even though most of it is almost worthless). Highly recommend and would use them again.Show Response
Thank you for your feedback! We definitely appreciate it!
DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY!!! Valuable items of mine are MISSING after using this company! In a nut shell, the movers showed up over an hour late. They rushed through the entire job, disregarding how we asked them to load my furniture and boxes into the moving pod. They failed to wrap my furniture in the moving blankets I provided …Read Moreand stacked fragile boxes (which were clearly marked) underneath heavy items. Fastforward one month later - I went to unload my pod to find my wooden furniture marked with deep gashes and my boxes with fragile items completely crushed. If that wasn't bad enough, a large bike box containing my flat screen tv and half of my wardrobe was GONE!! On top of everything, the owner of this company has tried to claim that my boyfriend and I are trying to scam him! Unbelievable!Show Response
Our reputation speaks for itself. This couple is claiming that we stole something from them that I personally know we did not steal. They changed their story four times as to what was stolen. I was willing to work with them until they couldn't get their story straight. It has also been a month, so it is hard to remember what they were talking about. I performed an investigation, I dug up pictures of their home from their move. I questioned our movers by asking them "what happened that day?" an
All four of them were exceptional, professional, kind, and respectful. They clearly cared about the quality of their job, and I 100% recommend them to anyone. They knew what they were doing, and showed great teamwork.Show Response
Thank you so much for the feedback Justin! We really apprecaite it!
Guys showed up 15 minutes early, ready to work, even at the end of the day! They were fast and super polite. Did a great job, would recommend them to a friend and use them for my next move!Show Response
