About Us

COVID-19 With the covid-19 alert, we would like to share the steps taken by St James Movers, LLC to prevent the spread. First, if you are a moving company who cannot get the supplies, you should not be moving anyone. With that said, our preventive methods are as follows: 1) We wipe our hands with Clorox wipes incrementally 5 times during every job. 2) We wear gloves throughout the course of the move except for the rare moments that we are handling your mattresses.(gloves leave dark handprints on the mattresses.) 3) We also use hand sanitizer at least a couple times periodically during each job. 4) We are wiping down every piece of your furniture before it leaves the truck with Clorox wipes that kill the the Human Coronavirus. Most of these steps were implemented decades ago but with the recent covid-19 scare, we have been diligent in doing our part to make sure every safety measure is adered to. Now, as applicable to Everyday moving companies, the following differentiates St James Movers, LLC from the run of the mill moving and storage companies. With over 60 years combined experience, there is no task too large or too small. We have a motto here at St. James Movers, LLC...."Moving Made Simple." We take the approach of making a little off alot of people in lieu of attempting to retire off of each job. Compare our prices and it becomes clear very quickly that you DO NOT have to spend a fortune to get quality work.

He did a great job and was very professional.

Mover's response:
Mr Hollingsworth, Thank you for giving us a call. Your job was not the most complicated in the world but on the other hand, if it had not been done correctly, you could have a lot of damage during transport. Desmund told me that he used half a roll of shrink wrap on this thing. If that is the case, I guarantee you it cannot budge. Regardless, we are thankful that you gave us the opportunity to work. Just as impressed and thankful that you took the time to give a review. Mr Hollingsworth, keep our number please. If you ever need us again, we will simply be a call away.

They did a terrific job! Highly recommended.

Mover's response:
Mr Nola, Thank you for allowing us can handle this move. Your move was rather distinct in that we handled the load and unload. Generally speaking, most people hire labor on the front side and then hire another crew after they have driven the truck cross country. Your job was different in that you were only moving up the road but had to keep your belongings in storage for 5 days. The way you approached it was absolutely brilliant. So that everyone knows, we loaded the truck for you, you locked it up and kept it for 5 days. We came to your new residence five days later and unloaded the truck. When a mover does such, he takes the risk not knowing how the truck will be treated. It turns out, you we're absolutely great. When this truck was unlocked, your belongings were in the exact same place they were in when we left. Accordingly, I want to thank you for allowing us to handle this but also, thank you for taking care to drive the truck safely in the process. Working for you was absolutely fantastic.

St James Movers was the best moving company I’ve ever had in the 40 years of moving!! James was wonderful to work with and he texts you to let you know when he will be there plus a great guy! He was VERY respectful of my furniture and home and just a hard worker. It’s so nice to see people that take pride in their job..

Mover's response:
Jan, Thank your for allowing us the opportunity to work for you. I promise to you when we began talking that we would be there. I also promise to you at your furniture would be handled in this fashion that it would be received in the same shape as it was when we arrived. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to pick up furniture and move it from point A to point B. It only takes someone who cares about what they are doing and someone who truly understands what sentiment means. I've been fortunate enough over the last three decades to have men who have understood just that. It has turned out that my good fortune has been good fortune for a lot of others as well. Jan, anytime you need us to work for you again, please do not hesitate to pick up the phone. It would be an honor to spend another day with you and your husband. Once more, thank you sincerely.

Arrived on time Worked tirelessly for the contracted time. Were very polite. Came fully prepared to do whatever was asked. Competitive price. Took good care of possessions. Will use again when needed.

Mover's response:
And we will gladly work again when called. Michael, I always liked reading these reviews to the guys when they have finished the job. It is insightful when we are shooting at perfection and fall short but very rewarding when the individual we work for appreciates the Service as we did in getting the job. Thank you Michael for the opportunity oh, thank you for taking the time to give this review and more than that, thank you so much for choosing st. James movers when you had scores of other moving companies you could have hired. We sincerely hope that you are happy with your choice

The young men were very timely, thorough, courteous and professional. Outstanding job, I would hire them again??

Mover's response:
Likewise, I will gladly work for you again as well. That professionalism thing goes both ways. It is always expected that movers provide a modicum of professionalism but let me tell you, there is such a thing that goes along with being an employer as well. When someone is ready to move, has all of their ducks in a row, it makes it much easier to be ineffective mover. Thank you for everything you did to make this as simple as possible. Of course, thank you for allowing us to work for you as well.

Guys were very respectful, clean, and moved all furniture in a safe manner

Mover's response:
David, thank you for giving us the opportunity to work for you. Also, thank you for giving the time it took to do this review. Did you ever need us again, feel free to pick the phone up and give me a call. We will be glad to work for you anytime you request.

(5) 8/12/2019 Troy

They were on time, polite, hustled and were very respectful. I had to change my arrival time and they were very accommodating. We used them for moving my son into an apartment in Troy. (Chaotic college move in day). Others were not having success with the moving companies they chose. I will be using St. James again.

Mover's response:
Kevin, I send the same two boys to just about every one of these hireahelper moves. They absolutely enjoy these labor only jobs. Of course, they assist in much larger move where we provide the truck and so forth but essentially, they are focused on these labor only jobs. After hearing what you have to say about them, I am reminded that this is almost the exact description that is echoed job after job. They really do a good job. With that said, Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to help your family. The next time she needs to move, you know where to look.

KJ and Desmond did a fantastic job! They were on time, very professional, and moved all of it things with care and promptly! I would definitely use them again!

Mover's response:
Mr. Hearn, Thank you for giving us this opportunity. As I told you in previous conversations, these boys work extremely hard and take pride in doing a good job. That is lost in a lot of today's environment. I could not be prouder than to be surrounded by such talent and responsibility. With that said, it is people like you who give us the opportunity at working for them. Without you, there certainly would not be us. Again, thank you so much for choosing us over the scores of movers you could have chosen from. I sincerely hope you got your money's worth.

Cindy and Terry E

(5) 7/25/2019 Pike Road

KJ and Desmond showed up on time and they were a blessing. They worked hard and fast and I would hire them again in an instant. Thank you both so much.

Mover's response:
Cindy and Terry, I just finished reading the review that was left for the boys to them. I do that with all of our reviews no matter if they are at this site, Thumbtack, Google, Better Business Bureau, Square or anywhere else. It has always been a teaching tool. We have used it effectively for nearly three decades now. However, getting a negative review is such a rare Occurrence at this stage that I think the teaching is about over. That may sound somewhat arrogant or even braggadocious but seriously, these guys are really good at what they do. We have never forgotten that we are essentially glorified delivery boys. With that said, no matter if we were moving furniture for digging ditches, we would aspire to be the very best that's what we were doing. These guys received six reviews in total yesterday. Every one of them stayed at the exact same thing. I can only tell you how proud I am, after all these years, to be at the end of my career and be surrounded by such talent. Yes, I will be selling this business to one of these guys in the next 5 years. I am beyond happy to know that when we hand this thing off, it will be handed off to people who care as much about Service as we do. Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to work for you. More than that, thank you for taking time out of your schedule to actually post this review. If you ever need us again, you know exactly where to find it. We will gladly work for you anytime you wish.

(5) 7/6/2019 Tuscaloosa

Very personable and professional. Kept us updated on ETA to start the job. They worked quickly and handled our items with care. We would definitely use them again.

Mover's response:
Thank you Elizabeth! Many times we are called to a job to find that the description is not exact. From start to finish, everything you told me was 100% spot on all the way down to family and friends. I appreciate the opportunity to work for you and will gladly be there again if ever called. Once more, thank you so much!
