Our two helpers were on time , very helpful regarding the process, very good at how to properly load the POD and very professional the entire time. I’d strongly recommend them to anyone and I will use the service again in the future !!
I was very dissappointed as to what I had asked for which was packing items and putting in my containers and putting in my pod.

Outstanding service! The movers were quick and very careful handling my fragile items and furniture. Highly recommend these guys they provide white glove and exceptional service. Will definitely reccomend and be a repeat customer! Thanks!
They were in constant contact with me. The crew very polite and respectful. They were very careful of our belongings. Got the job done ahead of time. I would definitely recommend Holland real estate services to a friend. And I will use them again in the future. "Larry M Spring Tx'
Terrible job packing my pod. It looked like a dumpster I had the boss come check the condition of the packing he helped a little I still had to work on it.

First the man wanted to use my bathroom then they said I could get my own dolly and help. I’m extremely dissatisfied with the service Marie Rossi
They were on time (actually early). They were very diligent in packing the PODS and extremely careful with furniture. They completely wrapped each piece with furniture blankets and shrink wrap. They were also very friendly and polite. Great job. I will request them on the next PODS load in July
They worked fast and efficient. Extremely helpful. They arrived on time. Prepared for a long day. They were hard working and respectful of my things as they used blankets and shrink wrap. I would certainly use them again. The company called me a few times before and during my move. Wish I used them for the first part of my move.…Read More
On time (actually early - I was still picking up the truck). Very professional; careful; understood what needed to be done; had equipment to make it easy. They made it a very good move. I will use them again this week for part 2 of my move.
This is the worse moving company that there is.. DO NOT USE THEM. they threw my furniture and fragile items into the crate, refused to use the straps that I purchased and just draped blankets on furniture. They also layed metal garden tools and ladders up against up against my furniture. I had to hire a another moving compa…Read Moreny to unload and reload that entire crate.
This time crew deserved 5 stars as they more cautious of my heavier furniture, which did not receive any dings as in the unloading of first POD. Since I was able to show supervisor actual dings he apparently shared info with crew. No problems. They were still hard working, polite and courteous. Would hire them again!
Crew is hardworking, polite and courteous. Even though they did a good job my Italian master bedroom set is very heavy and received several dings to the finish. One drawer had two parts broken off. Had to file a claim to get repairs made. I also emailed my photos Linda H #515919 on 4/21/18
The guys did a great job. Communicated when they would show up and were early to arrive. The job went longer than originally thought and they stayed very late into the night to get done. I plan to use them again in the near term!!
Overall the guys that came out did a good job moving items from my 7 ft POD container into my apartment. Due to the designated location of where PODS can be parked in my apartment complex there was about a 2-3 minute walk from the POD to my apartment. Despite this distance the guys were able to unload everything and help assembl…Read Moree some furniture in under 2 hours (which was great). The only negative I have is that they were late. They did, however, call me ahead of my scheduled service time to notify me how late they would be.
The original arrival time was 8-9, was called the day before move with a time change to 10-10:30, the movers did not show up until 11:30. The movers were not very careful with the furniture on the flooring (first piece brought in scratched the new floor). They did work hard and were very nice. But to be honest I probably would n…Read Moreot use them again.
James and his crew were on time and totally professional and capable. They got right to work and were careful with my furniture. They did a great job and I will be using them again when the remodel is done. Thank y’all for a great job.
Despite some initial difficulties, the crew assigned to us was running well behind the scheduled time slot. The Manager James and his coworker arrives to assist with the loading until his other crew could showed up to cover until his other crew showed up. They all did a great job. J.D.
The crew was outstanding! On time, excellent work, very professional, polite, very careful and skilled, good customer service and kept me in the loop the whole time. On short notice they really came through for us. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing a good, honest and proven crew.
Holland Real Estate Services did an outstanding job of loading our possessions from our house into a rented moving truck. Bobby and Xavier arrived on time and completed the job in the allotted 3 hours. They carefully wrapped our furniture in pads and shrink wrap and made sure that the truck was packed properly. They were friendl…Read Morey and professional throughout. They worked hard and fast but carefully. They packed the truck so well that after 2400 miles of driving everything arrived undamaged without any scratches or breakage. We would use them again and recommend them to others.
I highly recommend these guys and would absolutely use them again. They were on time and started right to work. They were obviously experienced in loading furniture and boxes into a POD. The guys were very hard workers and carefully loaded my belongings. Mr. Holland was very friendly and professional.
I did not have a good experience with this company. First, communication was challenging. We had difficulty understanding Mr. Holland in person and even more difficulty on the phone. Second, he was not respectful of my time. After twice promising to provide a crew between 8 and 9 am as requested, he finally arrived just befo…Read Morere 3 pm. This unreasonable delay caused me a number of problems. I was also not satisfied with the quality of the work. We provided plenty of moving pads and shrink wrap, yet some items loaded into the moving truck were not sufficiently protected and got damaged in transit. I would have given the service two stars if they had showed up on time, but arriving six hours late for an early morning appointment was inexcusable in my view. I would not use this company again.
The gentlemen from Holland Real Estate were on time, professional, and very friendly. They were respectful of our property, but it did take a bit of time to assemble the beds and one of them we ended up having to re-do a bit (the legs were put on incorrectly).

Awesome! Awesome! They showed up on time and got straight to work unloading the storage container. They were fast and effective. We had a safe that was heavier than we thought but they still moved it and put it in place and put the top of the China cabinet back up.
Holland Real Estate Services, were EXCELLENT! We will absolutely use them again. In fact we are planning to use them for our next load to finish moving in.

These guys were absolutely amazing! I needed help ASAP after a movedieto an injury during the move I was unable to unload the truck.

James and his crew showed up on time and prepared. They packed all the furniture and some boxes from a 4 bedroom house into Pods in less than 2 hours. They were respectful to my husband and me and of our property and goods. I would use their services again.
Holland RES & I agreed to an unload date (Saturday) and time (9-10am). 2 days before our move, Holland RES called to ask for delay to 10-11am, due to conflicting jobs. I agreed to this delay. 1 day before the move, Holland RES called for a 2nd delay to 11-12. I resisted this 2nd delay, due to projected rain. Holland RES cal…Read Moreled back to reconfirm start time of 10-11am. On the move day, the Holland RES movers arrived at 12:20, 2hr 20min past the original time. Given projected rain, I moved all of the lighter furniture and boxes into 2nd flr apartment, while waiting for movers. Upon Holland RES movers arrival, only heavy furniture remained, which were moved within 1hr, 15min out of the planned 2hrs. Then 15min after the movers departed, heavy rain arrived. The movers were good and worked efficiently and quickly during the time they were present, but I moved many more items and furniture than I planned to do. In the future I would be more precise on when the movers are to arrive and what level of commitment they have to their scheduled time. Also if I had more time I would have removed the filled drawers from a large bureau and chest of drawers, rather than the movers unload these 2 items with filled drawers. It made these pieces much heavier and the stresses on these pieces were evident when these were set down though no visible splintering/splitting appeared.
Very helpful and professional. Always arrived on time. Had good ideas on how to load the Pod well. Did a great job using all the space available. Respectful of items, making sure not to damage wood floor, walls or items being moved. Moved things in a great time frame.
These guys were great! I had a lot of stuff to fit in a small PODS container and they made it work. I know they put in the extra effort to make sure everything fit and I really appreciated it. The movers were very polite and careful not to damage the items they were loading or any walls/door jambs. I highly recommend!
I have to leave a poor rating due to jewelry turning up missing. The jewelry wasn't of much value but integrity is everything. The guys are probably ok to move across town but not across country. My furniture was not packed properly which resulted in a lot of items with stain rubbed off during the ride. I tried to pick a t…Read Moreop rated service but these ratings are obviously skewed. Probably by the owners themselves. Pitiful.
I could write a book. Used once before to unload a pod..they were awesome.

Sinks are marble and this was a newly constructed house. Gross, you co…Read Moreuldn't at least flush it? Never again. Hint, if you do use them, get them in the morning when they are rested. I should get a refund for the service for the damaged his crew caused. Mr. Holland could have cared less. Never again.
I've used Holland for two jobs in the last month. He is very personable, and his crews are always friendly, hardworking, and are very respectful of our home and furniture as they loaded/unloaded our PODS containers. Will definitely use them again in the future!
Hired them to pack my 4 bedroom home into 2 storage containers. They did great packing things into the containers carefully and strategically. Nice nice guys and I will definitely recommend them and use them to unload my items once I find a new home. Top notch!
Our crew showed up on time with the right equipment, and were pleasant to work with. They verified all details before starting to load our POD, then quickly got to work. They were careful with our items, and the POD was packed very securely. I would highly recommend the Holland team. In fact, we are using them again next week t…Read Moreo load our final POD for our move.
They arrived on very short notice and worked very hard loading and then unloading. This was our second time we used these fellows! They were very nice and courteous and careful not to damage anything. We would use them again, but hope not to move again for a long time??
The guys that came out to the house were extremely professional, courteous, on-time, and hard workers. Unloaded a PackRat moving container full of stuff. They took great care with our items. I would absolutely use this service from Holland Real Estate Services again. Highly recommended.
I will say that the two guys did a great job of breaking down and wrapping my furniture (with wrap & blankets that I supplied). They were very swift and efficient but towards the last few hours I feel they started moving very slow. I paid for 2 hours and wound up at like 7 hours. I feel that this job would have been more efficie…Read Morent with 4 guys as I can understand they get tired so more help would have probably been the equal of what I paid in half the time.
Cannot say enough good things about Holland Real Estate Services. They were easy to work with when I was running late. They handled our things with great care and respect, and were very friendly (and funny). They were packing wizards. They packed our POD wall to wall and floor to ceiling. I am positive we could not have fit ev…Read Moreerything in without their help. The most helpful thing I could do was stay out of the way. Absolutely worth every penny.
Promptly arrived as scheduled. Very thorough with preparing my furniture for shipping, moving it downstairs and packing the POD container. Holland Real Estate Services came highly recommended and they lived up to that recommendation. Superb service! Thank you!!
Great work! Very thorough. Arrived on time and were flexible as I needed to reschedule due to weather. I had them packing up a POD for a move across the country.

They called day before to confirm and morning to advise me when they would arrive. Prompt, very diligent in their work, friendly and hard working. We didn't think all my belongings would fit, but they did with room to spare in truck. Amazed at how they packed the truck. Definitely would use again, if I return to Texas.
Mr Holland was very helpful and professional, he was right there making sure our items were loaded carefully. The pods were packed very efficiently. They were on time, and ready to work, and did an excellent job, I would definitely use them again.
Mr. Holland appeared on time. His crew was very friendly and did a very professional job in a timely manner. I had to keep changing the times and dates I needed help, and the number of helpers to unload heavy fixtures from the delivery truck for my new store. I would not hesitate to seek help from Mr. Holland again.
I got Elroy and Bobby that came over to help me. They were on time. They were also extremely patient and helpful. They even helped me wrap my mirror, TV and a few other delicate items with cellophane wrap. I was really impressed and really appreciated all their help!! Thank you Mr Holland, Elroy and Bobby!!!

We had two guys fill up a 26' truck from our 4 bedroom home. They took 5 hours, and packed things in there perfectly. Everything got loaded, and due to the load capacity, nothing shifted during a move from Houston to Louisville. They were friendly and professional through the entire process. I highly recommend using them.
Worked perfect. Needed 2 guys to unload. They were there on time, worked hard and I had no problems. My CC was charged the exact amount quoted and the owner of the branch owned in Houston called to confirm everything went well and made sure I was satisfied. A professional and courteous operation.
The movers were very courteous and extremely knowledgeable of how to make everything fit in every corner of our POD. It totally amazed me how they were able to do it and worked diligently for 4.5 hours until it was finished. I would highly recommend them to anyone. They were more than helpful with extra items I found later to pu…Read Moret in the POD also. I will use them again.
Leroy and Bobby worked their tails off loading my large amount of stuff in a "large" POD. It was touch and go as to whether it would all fit, but they did it. I was nervous, but they were kind, even under a bit load of stress. Thanks Leroy and Bobby!
The movers were professional. They called 1 hour prior to arrival. There performance and care of my furniture and materials was exemplary.They work in a systematic and efficient manner. My concern for fragile items and glassware was alleviated .I definitely will use them again.
These guys were simply fantastic. I had upgraded to 3 men because they were climbing 3 flights of steps and I didn't want anyone to get heat stroke in the Houston, TX heat which had a heat index of over 100 that day. They only went a half hour over the 3 hours I paid for, but that was my fault.

This is a mixed review. I hired Holland Real Estate Srvice for 2 jobs. Friday was to move my 10x30 storage and Saturday morning was to move my 800 sq ft apt. 1. They were on time. 2. They were prepared. 3. So far it seems they were respectful of my property. 4. I would use them only if I can pick the crew. I believe …Read Morethings went great on the first job but the 2nd job was stretched out time wise. I have moved quite a bit over my life and know how it works. I made sure I had water and gatorade and food for lunch/dinner. I thought I treated them respectfully. Overview: I helped load from storage, which evidently kept the men moving. I say that because Friday went great. Saturday, was a completely different story. It took the same amount of time to just load the apartment as it did for the first job from storage (load, drive across town, and unload). I could not help load the 2nd job as I was in the apartment. While one loaded the truck, one should have been moving the items, however, that wasn't happening. The staging sight just kept getting fuller. I believe if I had been able to load from the staging sight to the truck, it would have kept moving. I did tip them as they had done a great job on Friday and there was one that worked exceptionally hard both days. I just hope they all received their tip as I gave it all to just one of them.
Outstanding workers who knew what they were doing, brought the right tools and most importantly a super attitude. A pleasure to have in my home. I would definitely use them again. Thanks again for having them at my home early and ready especially given this was same day service. Well Done!
Holland Real Estate Services did an excellent job, worked hard , and were very careful in how they handled my things. They were late, but they called and kept me in the loop on when they would arrive. I would definitely use them again.
Workers spent tome talking on a phone. In the team of 4 only 1 was Ok. About 50% of time was wasted. Disappointed on service. Packing and loading was poor.Show Response

Mr. Holland and his team moved us out of two storage units, and loaded everything onto a 28' trailer that was parked about 50 or so yards away.

Awesome guys. They were punctual, polite, super careful, and worked non stop like magicians to pack our POD top to bottom, front to back - amazing! I would hire these guys again in a heartbeat. Do not hesitate to hire this company, you will not be disappointEd.
I hired them to do furniture rearrangement in my two story loft. They were scheduled to arrive between 9-12 but were late because the first job of the day ran long.

Leroy and Bobby called before showing up. They arrived on time and got right to work. I was very please with the job they did. Both guys were professional yet friendly. If i needed a moving service again this would be my first pick.
Patient, friendly and competent. They showed up on time and worked the entire time. They loaded my 3 br house into two pods in 8 hours. I had one flight of stairs and a lot of heavy items.

Perhaps that is the case with all movers -- since the job is not a flat rate to unload the entire truck but instead by the hour which then is more difficult to ascertain how long should unloading a truck really take to complete.

The team was incredibly professional and efficient. Though it was a short move from my garage apartment to a pod on the street, it was the best experience I've had with a moving company. I planned for two hours, but only needed one. If I ever need a mover in Houston again, they will be the first I contact.
Holland Real Estate Services did a great job; specifically: - Leroy and Bobby arrived on time and worked hard for a full 3 hours. - They managed to carefully pack an entire house into 1 POD container.

This went above and beyond my expectations! I would definitely use Holland Real Estate Services and especially recommend Leroy and Bobby.
The crew from Holland moving did a great job. They arrived on time and worked quickly but carefully. Nothing was damaged. They were polite and tried to unload everything just where we wanted. I would recommend them if you need loading or unloading help.
Great job, awesome crew. They were able to come earlier to accommodate my plans. Got all of my stuff moved in within an 1 hour and 30 minutes. I would certainly use them again if I ever need to move my things. I just recently located from Michigan.
I was making a cross country move and they were told that. I had packed everything securely. I had dozens of blankets waiting on the truck to protect my furniture. Things were packed without protection and not wrapped. Heavy boxes on top of fragile. I have thousands of dollars in damages. A statute broke in half, lamps broke.

I have thousands of dollars in damages. In addition they were suppose to take apart a full wall book case. After 45 min they said it was glued together and wasn't going to get moved. I found all the seams to take it apart! It was not glued!! Just needed to follow the screws to get the sections apart. I had to call someone else in to help me get the bookcase apart so I wasn't able to monitor the packing of the truck. One of the movers showed up over weight with some foot problem and could hardly walk on his feet. I ended up having to carry furniture out to get it loaded because he was so slow and almost of no value! They movers promised they we're going to have everything protected. There were no blankets on the wood bookcase. Shelves, wood dining table, wood dining chairs. The bookcase shelves were found strewn all over the bottom of the truck with nothing to protect them! One night stand was turned upside down and it goes on and on! I can't wait to see how this is going to get settled!
We used Holland service to pack two PODS to move from Texas to Maryland. We stored the PODS for about two months. A Week ago we got our PODS delivered to our new home. To our horror, we found that the packers placed metal items from the garage next to our furniture which caused lots of damage to the furniture. There are cuts in …Read Morea leather couch, large gouge in our oak dinning room table, counter stools rubbed and cut, and more items were damaged due to the loose packing and placement. They said they knew how to pack the PODS and would not leave spaces between items. When unpacking we found that was not the case there were large spaces that allowed items to shift and get damaged. We found that they had packed furniture next to ladders and other metal objects. We have large cuts and gouges on many pieces of our furniture. They said they knew how to pack a POD. To our horror our leather couch was packed next to a metal object which left large cuts, our dinning room table has a large gouge from rubbing against a ladder, other wood furniture pieced that were placed next to garage items were damaged or broken. There were large areas between items that also allowed for shifting rubbing and damage. We have used pods before, packed it ourselves and nothing was damaged during the move. If these men were professionals then they should have known better.
We had some logistical challenges with our move and the team at Holland was WONDERFUL in accommodating us! They were prompt, fast, courteous and professional. I would highly recommend them if you have a move in the Houston, TX area.
The communication was very poor. Not only did I have to contact them to arrange all the details (vs. them reaching out to me), the owner is very difficult to hear/understand (on the phone and in person). The day before the job (when I hadn't heard from them and I had to call), I was told that they were overbooked and hoping i…Read Moref I could move my job to later in the afternoon or the following day (which was not possible). I was then told that they would be there at 11am and he would call me by 9am to confirm. By 10am and no call, I called him. He kept pushing back the time and then they finally arrived 4 hours late. Because they were so late, we had to cancel and reschedule the pick-up of our PODS - which meant having the PODS sit out in the hot sun for FIVE EXTRA DAYS. When they arrived, I was told that one or more of the workers had not had a background check and I had to call HireAHelper to waive the background check. Up against a wall as we needed to get things moved, I had to waive - no other choice. We were promised 4 men. Only one was capable (and he was awesome). The owner hardly did anything (maybe 5% of the move) and did not supervise either as later we found out that a whole room's worth of belongings didn't make it into the PODS. The other two were okay, but clearly were not engaged or experienced as furniture left the house unwrapped and many things I saw were dropped on the sidewalk or street. Because we did not have 4 able-bodied helpers, we had to go 3.5 hours over (which meant more money). We finally let them go at 9:15pm and my husband had to spent another 3 hours that evening and 2 hours the next morning, unloading and repacking the PODS to make sure all of our belongings got moved - if he had not done this, we would have had to leave a lot of furniture behind. In the end, we chose Holland Real Estate Services because of their great reviews online. However, our experience with them probably happened because they got overbooked, didn't want to turn down any jobs, etc. so they gave priority to those moves that were booked directly with them and left the inexperienced people for us. We will keep using HireAHelper in the future as their specific service is fantastic. Very responsive and helpful.
Leroy and Bobby did a great job and handled our furniture carefully and respectfully, even at the end of a long day of work! They arrived late, due in part to a confusion over our address, but worked steadily and efficiently after they arrived. We recommend them as movers.
I think they did an ok job overall, but when I asked them to do things in a specific way because of the quality of the items to be moved, I was ignored and the items did not get the attention to detail they deserved.

Attention to detail, following instruction, and being precise are necessary, for me to give a recommendation and they did not fill that requirement.
The crew was hard working and performed with only a little shifting of the furniture at the delivery point. The young man who packed the truck did well. He will get better as he gets older. Only one broken table which I will repair.
Mr. Holland's crew did a great job. The crew of four showed up 30 minutes late (otherwise I would have given them 5 stars), but when they arrived I could tell they were experienced. They packed up our 2,000 sq ft home in two pods in three hours. They were courteous and efficient. I'll hire them again when we are ready to move i…Read Moren our new home.
Super, super people! I would highly recommend them. They contacted us several times prior to moving day to confirm date, time, and location. They arrived on time and ready to work. They worked steadily in 100 degree heat, took excellent care of our property, and loaded our 26ft truck completely full in just 2.5 hours. They …Read Morefit everything in, which is amazing. Very friendly and professional. We would definitely use them again if given the opportunity.
James and his team were outstanding. They were able to change their schedule at the last minute and get us moved in a day early. The crew was careful and treated our items as though they were their own. Very polite and courteous.
Bobby and Leroy from Holland Real Estate Services did a great job! They arrived on time, were courteous and professional, and treated our belongings and new home with care. We would certainly use them again for again for a similar move (...although we hope to never move again, as the rest of our moving experience has been a comp…Read Morelete nightmare!)
James and his crew were great. They arrived prepared and were clean, polite, and very hard working. As the day moved forward James kept things on track and had each task planned out as the crew arranged every piece efficiently in the Pod. As the heat became pretty tough later in the day the workers continued to take on every new…Read More task with as much enthusiasm as the first. These guys moved all of our things as if they were all made of glass, checking and wrapping each one. They really blew me away, I would use them again and definitely recommend them to anyone.
First of all the movers from hire a helper showed up, and they showed up on time. I had some movers scheduled for the day before but they were a no show. The guys were all very conscientious and they handled my belongings with care. They worked quickly and efficiently. I was very happy with them and I would certainly rec…Read Moreommend them.
This is the second time I have relied on Holland Real Estate Services--the first was for a typical move, while the second was part of flood recovery efforts, which are even more stressful and chaotic. No matter the situation, Mr. Holland and his crew are always on time, always kind, and they work hard. I cannot recommend them en…Read Moreough.
The movers were at the location before I arrived and patiently waited. One of the movers appeared injured and moved very slowly, the other was fit and quick. I was a little concerned as the injured gentleman seemed to have a difficult time breathing but was ok. They were flexible and able to work longer and did everything I a…Read Moresked of them. Overall they did a great job.
I can't thank James enough. I messed up and scheduled the wrong date and didn't catch it until the day before I really needed them. I called James in a panic and he was able to come the next day! This was critical since I had scheduled the POD pick up for the day after the move. Anyway - once again, they were on time, moved …Read Morethe stuff quickly with not incident. I would definitely recommend them and will use them again, if needed. Thanks James and Crew!
Not your typical laborers. In 1 word, Professional! Easy to schedule, arrived on time, were thorough, professional gentlemen. Unpacked the moving truck and placed items as if the items belonged to them. No mishandling of goods. Will definitely how them again and recommend them often.
I used holland real estate services for the second time and I'm so glad I did. They arrived earlier than I had scheduled at my request and they finished the whole loading job in an hour and a half! None of the furniture was damaged. Great guys!
while James and crew were on time, friendly and worked hard, we did have problems. I thought everything was done well until we unpacked. We then realized that they had done the following: 1. put things against most of the wooden furniture that scratched and gouged for the whole 3 day drive. There is not a piece of furnitur…Read Moree left that was not affected. 2. Put heavy boxes at the top rather than the bottom 3. plainly disregarded the clearly marked fragile boxes. Again I will say that it looked like they were doing a good job while they were loading. If there had been suggestions made, we would have gladly followed them. If we needed to get some padding or blankets, we could have simply opened some of the boxes there. It is my expectation that professionals use their expertise to prevent these sorts of avoidable mistakes. So while they were nice guys, I would not use them again.
I had a three-man team for loading and a two-man team for unloading. Each time they showed up on time and worked very hard. They were very careful with my furniture. I had rented a Pack Rat container and they packed it so well there was no shift. I had no damage. We were moving the contents of a large house and what I appre…Read Moreciated most was their advice on how much the container would hold so that I could prioritize what was essential to move now and what could be done later.
I was very pleased with the 2 young men who helped, along with the owner. It is very refreshing to see the "Big Man" roll up his sleeves and work just as much as his employees. Very prompt, and well prepared, this was a big plus for us as this move is time orchestrated. Definitely recommend this service. I will be using this se…Read Morervice again in a couple of days to help load our second POD. Thank You!!!!!
So they were nice enough. However they dropped a few things of mine and chipped my previously blemish-free furniture and did not seem terribly apologetic about it. Also they did not wrap up the furniture as I expected. I have definitely had better service for a similar price
Two men arrived early, ready to go. Were knowledgeable about packing a POD, and protected our things. Worked hard, and happily added an extra hour to finish the job. Very personable, friendly, and helpful. One had a weak knee, but it didn't slow him down much. We'd use them again. Thanks.
The movers and the owner of the company were extremely courteous and professional. The movers took extra care to not damage the items and were able to fit an entire 2 bedroom home into a 10x10 storage container. I will definitely refer them to friends and family in the future.
James came with Bobby and Josh and they all were professional courteous and a delight to have work for us. They unloaded our container in record time and made sure we knew of every problem they found in the container prior to moving any damaged item. I would use them again for any move we might make in the future and highly re…Read Morecommend them to anyone who may need their services.
Two employees, working for Holland Real Estate Services, arrived at my home at the agreed upon time. They were prepared to move some heavy items and worked very hard. They treated my property as if it were their own. I would definitely use this company again based on these two employees.
The most convenient thing about these movers is that they answer your phone call! I was able to call them on the day of the job - they answered- and showed up early! They got everything done in exactly the time they predicted and had a good sense of humor. I will use them again whenever I move around Houston.
I've never used a moving company before until Holland Real Estate Services. The workers were very personable and worked efficiently. I've heard horror stories regarding movers but I must say these guys put my mind at ease, and I have no problem recommending them to anyone.
Bobby & Leroy were great! They called in advance to let me know they were on their way, they arrived on time, and they worked continuously but with care. Mr Holland called a couple of days in advance to confirm everything, and he gave me a list of supplies I needed to have on hand. The job went smoothly and eithout any hiccups.
Leroy & Bobby were awesome. Moved furniture and boxes from 3rd floor apartment using stairs and loaded in a 6×12 trailer. Didn't think it would all fit, but they did it!!!!! Very professional and friendly!!! Will use Holland Real Estate services again if needed....
This was my second time using movers help. The first time I used movers help was one day before using this company. I had one company pack the truck up and when I got to Tx I had this company unload. The differences I notice, were. This company used there hands to move items around. I talked to, well I guess, "their boss" who ha…Read Moreppen to be standing and watching/talking while they moved boxes. I spoke with the "boss" and stated the guys could save there backs with some lifting straps for assistance. The first movers used the straps over their shoulders and moved the matress,dresser, and desk like it was a feather. These poor guys had there bare hands. The "boss" stated they were strong, I don't care how strong you are, it still not good on the back/hands. The movers also did not use the dolly much when moving the boxes and bins. The first movers I used, stacked boxes and bins up on the dolly. Instead of moving a box one by one they moved several at a time. When I noticed this one was going on, I immediately jumped on and started moving boxes since I was on a 2 hour window. I also had a desk that if needed to be could be taken apart and put back together. The first movers did not have to do this bc of the angle they picked the desk up with the shoulder straps. The "boss" approached me and said the desk would have to be taken apart and he would rather "I" do it so I would not be charged extra money. He tried to convince me several times to leave the desk in the hallway so that I could take it apart and move it in the room myself. I told him that I specially put in the instructions about the size of the desk and that it may have to be taken apart. I also stated to him that he should have not taken the assignment if he didn't think he could get the job done. All in all one of the young movers ran to the truck and grabbed his tools. After 20 mins and a lil of my help. The desk was taken apart and put back together in the room it was suppose to go into. The movers themselves were EXCELLENT.! I just hate that the "boss" did not want to invest in some better equipment/ 15 dollar straps to help these guys out when moving. The "boss" was more in the way and a chatter box while we were hustling moving boxes. He didn't pick one thing up or move a finger, he was more in the way and could have stayed in the car. Would I use this company again? Yes, but the "boss" needs to stay out the way and let these guys do their job.
James Holland and crew did a great job unloading and placing quite a few large furniture items for me that were not only heavy they had glass doors and shelves. When I called to confirm my unloading time for Monday, James asked me if I wanted them to come earlier? Are you kidding me, he volunteered to come over on Sunday morning…Read More for no additional cost to me!? I recommend these guys highly!
These guys are FABULOUS! Mr. Holland is organized and professional, and his workers are the same. They are polite, clean, experienced and personable. They took great care in packing our truck, and I feel very confident with the packing job they did. I wish I could take them with me to unload on the other end.
Leroy and Bobby (hope that's his name) did a fantastic job unloading our 22' moving truck! They were on time and wasted no time getting right to work. They were very professional and took great care in dealing with our belongings. Definitely recommend this company!
Great workers! Definitely would recommend and use them for my next job. BJ and Alonzo were terrific! Unknowingly, they had a to execute my job and one earlier that morning since they weren't informed by their supervisor. First class to BJ and Alonzo once more, their supervisor owes them more than a pat on the back!!
I was having repairs done & needed all my belongings to be removed. I rented a pod & needed all my belongings packed & moved to it. I was really dreading this & thinking it couldn't be done but they amazed me & made it a pleasant experience. I just sat back & let them do their work.They were on time, very courteous, worked reall…Read Morey hard, respectful of my property & goods. I willl always use them. Plan on using them to move my items back in.
Broke a power cord for the refrigerator and a clip the the drawer and didn't offer to replace. Also, workers stood around too much and I had to take boxes out on my own. Overcharged for his service by 45 minutes and then asked for a tip!
They showed up early, were very professional. Worked dligently. No marks left on any walls even carrying a ten foot sofa up a flight of stairs with one 90 degree turn at a landing. Finished early, very courteous. Would strongly recommend them to anyone!
They did a very good job. The movers were on time and were flexible to a change in schedule. They were very proffesional and know what they're doing. Mr. Holland communicates with you very well with regards to scheduling. Highly recommeded!!
These guys were great! They showed up at 8:56 AM for a 9 o'clock job, and were ready to roll. If anything, they were waiting for us to get our act together after a long week of moving. They really saved us that day and would certainly use them again!
James, Bobby, and LeRoy did a great job. They hit the job running...were on time and did a wonderful job of packing the PackRat tight and safe. Also, they were so friendly and helpful with every question. If you want a Stress free packing crew...Call Holland !
First of all , the team of guys is great at Holland. They have a great upbeat attitude and are very personable. They were also very fast and efficient at loading everything. They were so fast that they didn't wrap some of our furniture. They left the fitted sheet on the tempurpedic mattress($5000) and didn't put anything els…Read Moree on it. When I noticed it I asked them to wrap it and they said "no problem". I walked away to do something else and assumed they wrapped it and I didn't check it until after they left. When I did, I found it was not wrapped . Along with other items like my leather chair. I spent about an hour with two friends rearranging it to fix it. I love the guys but i think they should have slowed down and paid a little more attention to that( especially since we had already bought the mattress and couch covers at home depot and handed to them at the start of the job, but they said they didn't need them. )
They took 2 extra hrs as they didn't want to use elevator and loaded truck to use garage, so to unload pod to load truck to then unload truck .. They worked my bill I think, as they had no other clients the day I moved... But they were careful as heck and
