I liked that they arrived on time and able to add a 3rd worker at the last minute at our request. They worked hard and did a good job loading everything. My only complaint was finding a broken table lamp and a double lateral file cabinet that still remains jammed shut.

The movers were polite, respectful, and hardworking. However, they have no idea how to load a truck with sufficient padding for a long haul move. My stuff got there intact, but it was scratched and scraped. I had plenty of pads and stretch wrap. They barely used either. I told them I had one extremely high value item. They bounced it down the stairs on a dolly.

Very hard working team. Very polite young men that listened to direction and cared for my house hold goods. Working as hard as they did in this heat and humidity would be a challenge for anyone. They took it in stride and finished on time. I would definitely hire them again!

They arrived early and went right to work unloading my POD. They pointed out some items that appeared to have been damaged in transit and helped to assemble some of the furniture. I'd definitely use them again.

Mover's response:
Thank you for the kind review! We appreciate our customers, and go out of our way to satisfy each and every one! Rick

Get To Know Us

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

Top tier, white glove service, along with fully trained, motivated, polite movers who care about what they do! Once we arrive at your loading destination, we will go over with you everything pertaining to your move.

How should a customer prepare for moving day?

BE READY! Have boxes ready to be loaded onto the truck. Put pets in crates or in the back yard. Have everyone out of bed :) If possible, have furniture disassembled, beds apart, mirrors off dressers etc. Have the moving vehicle/container as close to the home exit as possible. All these helpful hints will save valuable time, and money. Also remember, if we are ONLY loading your possessions, have furniture pads, and ratchet straps available for the movers. 2 furniture pads per piece of furniture!

What types of moves have you handled?

Long Distance, full service moves to Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio, New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Missouri, Louisiana, Texas, and Colorado. We have done office moves in Northern Virginia, Southeastern North Carolina, and Northeastern South Carolina. We volunteered moving furniture at 2 churches in anticipation of Hurricane Florence in Sept. 2019. One in Oak Island, NC., and one in Wilmington, NC.

What's your favorite part about being a mover?

Getting a chance to meet and get to know the families we are working for. We have over 480 repeat customers.

What training do you provide your crew members?

All movers we hire have professional moving experience. After hiring a new employee, they remain with a crew leader for 120 days before going out in the field on their own.
