The gentlemen were amazing! Very efficient and worked hard to get everything moved, they assisted with putting some of the furniture pieces together and were fantastic!

Carlos and Brian were fantastic. They worked hard from the minute they arrived to the second they left. Carlos is very capable, solution oriented and his experience proved valuable. I would definitely used them again.

Carlos and Brian are probably the best movers we have ever used. I don't know how much Tetris Carlos plays, but he fit what we thought would be impossible into a POD with tons of extra room! When we unload the POD, I'm going to fly him to our destination to unpack for us. Absolutely amazing experience. They really are 5 star movers!!!!

Both days we used 5 Star were great. The second day: My only negative is stuff that was forgotten in the house. They should have done a walk through afterwards to check but there was a dresser mirror left and that was a bear for my husband and grandson to fit in the POD and restrap everything back together. Also several more items that we had to figure out where they should go. We had to take some things out of our truck to put in more important things. The guys, though, were wonderful and worked hard for us. Again....they should have done a walk through the house before leaving. Yes....we would recommend them to anyone.

Truly wonderful, prompt, and helpful movers..thank you so much! I rented a truck that charges by the square footage and they definitely used the space well. Highly recommend!

Did exactly what they said they would do, great communication, on time, and willing to take on extra tasks on short notice to help us out since we were handling the move from a distance. HIGHLY recommend!

Alberto and Daniel were fabulous! They very carefully loaded the trailer - and got the work done quickly!! I would definitely hire them again.

Kevin and Anthony were terrific: on time, polite, respectful, hard working, and did a great job. Kevin worked his magic putting all the different size boxes and odd shaped pieces into a tightly packed whole - like a jigsaw puzzle. I would definitely hire them again.

Get To Know Us

What can a customer expect after booking with you?

After booking, you will receive an email that provides the phone number for 5-Star Moving. We do our very best to call clients within 48 hours. However, during the busy season sometimes it’s best to contact us if you want to go over your move details!

What can a customer expect on moving day if they hire you?

The movers will always call the day of your move if we are running at all behind, if you don’t hear from us this is usually a good sign, it means we are on track so try not to stress!

How should a customer prepare for moving day?

Having items well boxes is the #1 time saver and a sure way to keep your bill as low as possible. If you have 1 container, expect the move to take 2 to 3 hours. If you have 2 containers expect the move to take 4 to 6 hours. Remember - lamps, lamp shades, and small items should be boxed if you want them to arrive safely to your destination. Small items in general can increase the move time by double so having all these items in boxes really does help. Buy plastic wrap, straps and blankets for us.

What types of moves have you handled?

We on an average load of 60+ containers/month. Meaning our movers are extremely versed in the art of PODS loading. We also do truck work and have been in the moving industry for over 10 years. Some of our veteran loaders have been in the industry for 20+ years. Whoever shows up, rest assured you’re in good hands.

What's your favorite part about being a mover?

Our favorite part of being a mover is the satisfaction of a job done right. We see every day poorly loaded rental trucks and POD containers, we also see the frustration from those clients who have poor experiences. We love when the client is watching with his/her eyes wide open while we wrap their valued belongings.

What training do you provide your crew members?

All of our team members are carefully trained. They all know and understand the price of furniture and the value. Because of this, they take extra caution when loading your items. They also expect to have the right materials to do their job properly, this is why it’s important for you, the client, to always have the 3 essentials - plastic wrap, blankets and ratchet straps (NOT ROPE!).
