They worked really hard and could not have done it without them. They were personable and took care of my stuff. My only complaint is they showed up 20 min after the window I was given, but that seems to be more a office issue and over booking them.
Even though, there was a contract to sign, it felt like a handshake agreement. They delivered what was promised. They left no doubt that our goods would be handle professionally and with a great deal of care. In this day of gross incompetence, it was refreshing to find an organization that has fine tuned their service to be…Read Morenefit their clients. Need I say more.
They were on time and quick, but they announced they were going to be charging extra for mileage right as we met up. They charged a 1/2 hour extra for their time. The lead guy was rude when I let him know I hadn’t been able to give them a cash tip... extenuating circumstances. I had picked up drinks and snacks specifically for t…Read Morehem but he didn’t even partake because he was upset about the tip. He turned around and left mumbling how he does the work from his heart and how bad it was that I couldn’t tip (single mom, new state, new house). Didn’t follow directions on where to put things. Instead of outside... VERY heavy for me... left at back door. A week later, still there. I can’t move them. Wasn’t helpful when it came to trying to place an oversized desk. Hire a Helper, however, listened to my complaints and adjusted accordingly! Thank you!
Ryan, Dennis and Demetri did an absolutely wonderful job unpacking my Pod. They were exactly on time to start. We had an 8x16 pod and it took them just an hour. They were all very helpful, polite and attentive to corners and bumping door jams. They asked where everything went and made sure it was where it needed to be or where I…Read More wanted it placed before leaving it. I would absolutely recommend CalState moving and storage and would use their services again.
Arrived early, brought the materials they had promised, stayed focused on the job and took only one deserved break while they were here. They, Adrian and Eric, knew what they were doing, maximized every cubic foot to the POD, and took very good care of our furnishings. I'm requesting those two to come back to load our second P…Read MoreOD.
These guys were awesome! They showed up on-time, were very professional and made everything fit in my truck even though I kept adding more stuff! They were super fast, done a lot sooner than expected. Would highly recommend them to anyone :)
Everything with my POD loading went very smooth. Chris and Eric, did a great job and finished in 2 hours instead of the 3 I booked. They arrived on time, communicated well, and were very helpful. I plan to use them for the completion of my move.
Excellent, on time, efficient, used proper care of my items, professional, and wrapped everything. They were everything and more! I really had no idea what to expect from this company other than they were one of three that were recommended to me from POD. I decided to go with them after talking with their intake personnel who wh…Read Moreere very friendly and patient with all my questions. Their rates were in the ballpark of the other two as I was transporting a 7' POD from California to Minnesota. Everything arrived in perfect condition, nothing missing, and on the day as planned. I would definitely use this company again!
This rating is based upon the administrative service provided by the company NOT the actual workers that showed up, the guys were great. I selected "Calstate moving and storage" as my service provider. I agreed to pay for 2 workers for 3 hours. I authorized my credit card to be prepaid for the agreed amount. the workers arriv…Read Moreed early, which i did not mind. However, they were not from Calstate moving and storage. I was caught off guard by this. Apparently Calstate contracted with a different company and did not bother to tell me. I am cautious about whom I allow into my home, and a group of workers from a company I have not hired falls into that category. I was also told as they showed up that I would have to pay them cash, which of course i was not willing to do since i had pre-authorized my credit card. The work was finished in less than the 2 hours i paid for, because the workers worked hard, but I received an email requesting that I pay for an additional hour of work. It was frustrating that i had to do more work to ensure that I was not over charged. I am not sure if the error was with Calstate Moving and Storage or HireAHelper so to be safe I will refrain from using either company again and encourage those I know to stay away also.
These 2 young gentlemen were very hard workers. They worked very well together, organized, packed about 80% of my home in only 2 hours!! Definitely recommend these particular movers, however, with the 2nd set of movers a few days later (also from Hire A Helper), they were not even close to these guys!
Very impressed. Two young, hard-working guys (both named Alex?) arrived on time and exceeded my expectations. Knowledgable, good listeners, prepared and professional. They worked with purpose and care and loaded my pod to the max. I will definitely use them again when I unload. Thanks!
This was the worst experience I have had trying to coordinate movers . I had to have my pod loaded and removed the same day . They promised 12-1 they would be ther. The night before they called and said 3-5 , I called hire a helper to let them know that would not work with pick up. Then after they spoke to movers , I received a …Read Morecall saying no problem we will be there 12-1,then they waited until 6 pm and called to say will be there 3-5. Hire a helper was closed then so I called next morning to cancel and find another mover. I hired quick movers and was extremely satisfied they gave me exact time not a window. They were there at 12:00 and everything moved by 2:30, no extras charged.Show Response
Dear Mark, Before your job was even accepted our representative reached out to you to let you know that the time of arrival would be 2-5 pm not 12-1 pm, and if you are okay with it we can go ahead and book the move. You said that this would be okay with you, and you agreed for the arrival time between 2-4 pm. Then, on the day before the moving day you called Hireahelper office and told them that you wanted to change the time back to 12-1 pm. Hireahelper representative called us with the conce

Ryan and his crew from Calstate Moving & Storage helped make our moving experience the best! They were efficient, helpful, courteous, and professional. They were on time and prepared for the job with all packing materials we could have needed (and we thought we didn't need any more!). I would recommend this company -- especially…Read More Ryan -- to anyone!
I had a POD that I needed loaded for a move across the country. Luke and Luke were excellent. They were on time, knew exactly what they needed to do and they were fast. As soon as they got to my place, they moved fast and didn't slow down for the 3 1/2 hours they were loading the POD. I had most of the moving supplies ready,…Read More and they were efficient. They were very respectful and careful of the items they were wrapping up and loading into the POD. I would HIGHLY recommend them. My fiance has moved many times and was blown away by how hard these guys worked. Again...HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!
Uluk and Sam spent several hours helping us unload our moving van and packing boxes and furniture up the stairs at our new town home. Very hard working and experienced guys. Not one item was broken or damaged. They arrived on time, with all the gear they needed. Will definitely use these two guys again!
I have moved fairly often throughout the last 10 years and I can honestly say that this was my best experience BY FAR!!! My morning start off with the movers I had originally booked (Not CalState) canceling on me minutes before they were suppose to arrive. I went online and luckily enough I was aligned with Cal State who offer…Read Moreed a very competitive hourly rate. Within 90 minutes of my online order, Robert and Barik were at my home. I was not very organized but it didn't stop them. They took a look at my home (3 living rooms, kitchen, game room and 4 bedrooms) and confidently told me that they could get it done. I reserved judgment as I knew it was a tall order. They tempo that they worked with was nothing short of amazing. They were friendly, careful and very hard working. Thank you Robert and Barik and the whole team at CalState. You made moving something that it never is, enjoyable. Hats off to you all and thank you again! Robert especially was a joy to work with. Very transparent, friendly with my children and incredibly driven to meet the goals that he told me he would meet. They both represented the company in a way that would make any employer proud.
The young men arrived on time and worked very quickly to move our goods to our 26-foot moving truck. They were prepared for the job and worked hard. We were particularly impressed with their concern for mirrors and glass on our furniture; they taped cardboard on them for extra protection. They lost stars, however, for the way tr…Read Moreuck was packed. Because they didn't use all the furniture pads we provided or the ones they did use properly, it became clear during unloading and in the time since that several pieces of furniture ended up gashed or chipped. Space in the front could have been used better. I don't know if we would use them again now that we are realizing the extent of the damage. Also, they don't keep the same crews working together, so individually the movers were great, but they didn't work as a unified team.
I have moved so many times in my life and these guys made it so easy. They were on time, they packed fast and efficiently, nothing arrived broken, they were very professional. I would recommend them in a heartbeat. Moving is stressful and this company eased my stress tremendously.
Thanks to CalState Movers and Ricardo and Orlando. They did us great. On time, courteous, helpful and they really knew what they were doing. I didn't think everything in my storage unit would fit the PODS unit. But they really packed well. What a r lied to have professionals help you move. I'd hire them again - for sure! Thanks…Read More!
Sam and Daniel did a fantastic job! Hard working and good natured guys who worked quickly and efficiently. I had not finished packing some items and they did a great job on that, too, besides moving the heavy stuff. They showed up early and got the job done fast. The proof of their ability was when the PODS they packed was opene…Read Mored at my new home and everything was where they packed it. I'd definitely use them again
I was not too impressed with their organization skills. I did not have a good feeling about this when I made the arrangements. I chose CalState because according to what I read on "HireAHelper", there would not be any extra charges except if I needed more moving blankets. However there were extra changes for the boxes used to…Read More protect my pictures etc. It was confusing and we didn't get everything packed that I wanted. However we did fill the container. This was my first experience. I will have another opportunity to use "HireAHelper" in the coming months. We'll see how that goes.
Duane and Daniel just moved most of my house into a container and did an amazing job! I have a lot of heavy furniture and they shrink wrapped and protected everything. They were running a little late but they called to let me know. Very organized, hard working and efficient - almost too efficient because I had requested them for…Read More 3 hours and they got it all done in 2 hours. Calstate Moving does not prorate so that was a bummer, but not the guys' fault. I would definitely use them again. Wish they could be on the other end to move us into the new house.
arrived a little late - but started working immediately and kept working. very professional in all aspects of POD packing - protecting the furniture, balancing the POD, filling up all available space. we will use them again and we hope we get the same guys
I would recommend these movers again and again! I had a lot of heavy furniture and I lived on the third floor with no elevator… And they got down every piece of furniture without any problems! They're wrapped everything perfectly, came with the dollies and everything else they might have needed and were very thorough and fast! T…Read Morehey gave me a two hour window of between 10 AM and 11 AM, they actually called me and were able to come at 9 AM. Which worked out perfect because I did need them an additional hour in the end. PODS referred this moving company to me and I am glad they were the ones that I booked, I will use them again when I move into my home!
The arrived at the pre-agreed upon time and were ready to go. They filled two 16' containers in less than three hours and were a delight to work with. I would highly recommend them for anyone that needs assistance in packing into a container.
The CalState movers that we hired were excellent. They were right on time, very professional and respectful of my property and my family. They were very prepared and actually finished sooner than we had anticipated. We would definitely use CalState Moving again.
We tipped them well because they moved a lot of boxes and heavy furniture within the 4 hour window we scheduled them for. There were heavy wall units and lots of boxes and they got it all into the house. They were very late to our job but said it was traffic and because they were waiting for someone else to pay them. They worked…Read More very hard for us. But two out of three of them were unfriendly and seemed to be ignoring our instructions/requests. The guy with the shorter hair in the blue shirt was much more friendly and listened to us. We had stuff that we wanted to leave on the curb to put back in the truck and had to tell them several times to leave it and not bring it into the house. In conclusion, they did the work well and moved a lot of heavy stuff, but I felt uncomfortable the whole time because 2/3 of them acted like they didn't want to be there and were dismissive when we made specific requests. They were prepared for the job and it got done.
The workers I hired from CalState Moving arrived spot on time (moments early, in fact). They were ready to jump right in. I was very pleased at how diligent they were in tackling the job. It was a warm day and I was concerned that they not over-exert themselves, but they worked right on, pacing themselves well. I had a few pi…Read Moreeces of heirloom furniture that I was concerned about, but they handled them with excellent care. I was moving things from my apartment to storage, and I was impressed by their skill in utilizing space. I'd definitely use CalState Moving again. If this team is representative of all their workers, they are worth every penny.
On time. Great attitudes. Good English. VERY careful with my recent paint job on walls. Tri-story place; lots of stairs; very tight space to move around the stairwell. Did it all without scratching the new paint. Assembled a new bed from carton. Finished within the contract time ... didn't need any overcharges. Would u…Read Morese them again in a heartbeat.
Cal State Moving performed awesome for my moving needs. They were knowledgeable, fast, professional, and the price was reasonable. They handled my Items with care. Its good to know that honesty is still available. This company did exactly what they were hired to do efficiently! Thanks Cal State Moving!!
they r so fast, no time waste! i think this is really important thing when i hired moving crews. they came early than i expected. they wrapped all my staffs then carefully put in to their truck. on the way to my new place they arrived right after me. n try to save time for me. finally finished with only 10 mins over time. i…Read More will hire them again n recommended this to my friends.
CalState made a light move of some extra furniture into a storage unit. The good: I booked them with only a 48 hour notice and they were able to accomodate without a problem. They came prepared with dollies, plastic wrap and moving blankets. They guys were courteous, worked hard and were direct in how the process and time w…Read Moreould work. The not so great: I had to call them to to actually confirm the appointment and details as they didn't call me. They were also about 30 minutes late. None of thing was bad enough for me to be upset. Just noteworthy to be aware. Overall: CalState wrapped and moved my stuff while making it easy. They are clearly flexible and reliable. Nothing was broken and it was done within an hour.
I asked for 2 person and a truck to move a conference room table and 8 chairs, the table legs where dismounted. They were on time, and service overall was good, only thing i was surprise is that they did not bring any dolly or other way to carry heavy stuff so there were some problems with transporting the table out of the trunk…Read More and into the building. Also they didnt have a meter to mesure if we can make it through the elevator neither screwdrivers to dismount pieces in case was needed. Not sure if this is something i need to notify in advance. Overall service was good although not outstanding
CalState Moving was fantastic! They came on time and worked very hard. They were very organized and courteous. The 24 foot truck was completely stuffed with our things and they were very careful with the loading and unloading. They wrapped things very well when necessary. I would definitely recommend them to anyone and use …Read Morethem again! Both Russell and Brian were very good.
Scheduled for 11:00 am to 12:00 pm show time, at 11:55 still hadn't shown, when I called I was told another 30 to 40 minutes, which was unsatisfactory as the reason for hiring these people as to get furniture, boxes, etc moved for a sporting event across the street. At 12:35 pm still not there, when I called, was told "were o…Read Moren our way, we are another 20 minutes away" to which I said forget it (along with another choice word or two). The guy from CalState says "but were on our way", to which I said that's your problem and hung up. I then called HireAHelper, and cancelled order all together, as we got the stuff moved by a bunch of volunteer Dads.
Calstate did a wonderful job. The employye in the front office was courteous and email me conformation that the job woudl be done as promised. They sent 2 employees to remove and deliver my old furniture to the nearest Salvation Arm. The workers were very professional and did an excellent job of removing the furniture from my ho…Read Moreme. They were very careful with my very large glass dining room table and took every precaution not damage it. Price for the service was reasonable and I would definitely use their services again.
The guys were nice guys, but too tired from the last job earlier the same morning. I felt bad for them, but honestly, they were awfully slow compared to other movers I've worked with in the past. They wouldn't accept any coffee or water. In the end, we went two hours overtime and I could not add extra hours over the phone with H…Read Moreireahelper. I thought this could be done with an automated system, but instead I was on eternal hold with (apparently unavailable) Hireahelper customer service. I had to pay the movers directly, and of course there was a 5% surcharge for having to put it on a credit card. The movers didn't wrap my mattress or armchair all the way, and even though none of my things were damaged, I still feel like it would have gone a lot more quickly and smoothly if I'd worked with a different company.
These guys were fantastic! The two men who came to help me move showed up early (on a Saturday morning!), were extremely helpful and hard working, very friendly, and went above and beyond. It was a wonderfil experience and really could not have gone better. I would definately reccomend them and will be calling them for whenever …Read MoreI move again. Thank you calstate moving!
CalState Moving did a wonderful job for us. They were on time, respectful of us and our property and they worked hard. Best of all, their rates were very friendly. I would definitely hire them again if I needed a professional moving service.
I was scheduled for Calstate moving but was informed at night that they were fully booked.They were very helpful in getting me another moving company and transferred my account info. to them, which I was grateful for since it was all on short notice.I was happy with the moving company hey recommended... Mrs. C.Miller...
Though CalState Movers sent us too small of a truck and showed up earlier than they were booked, we were able to get a larger truck and get started only an hour late. The movers were all very friendly, quick and helpful. They did a great job and I would recommend them to any of my friends.
These guys were great. On time, and very professional. They were moving a very delicate, very large, VERY expensive architectural model. At first I had another company lined up, but wasn't impressed with their customer service. At the last moment, I hired CalState Movers and they were top notch. Even on short notice, they ha…Read Mored all the supplies we needed, and were at my office at 6:30am on the dot. Being on time is one thing - being on time that early is a godsend. I highly recommend them!!!
