The movers were extremely careful, polite, and were strategic and patient in packing the truck, as I'd underestimated the quality of items and probably should have gotten a 15 ft. rather than a 10 ft. I am grateful for the extra efforts they took. Thank you so much.

These four guys worked hard, were incredibly polite, and were respectful of my furniture. Brandon phoned me before my move to discuss details and to answer any questions I had. He texted the night before and during their long trip to my house to update me on their ETA. They arrived during the hour-long window we had scheduled.

I've never used a service like this, so I was a bit skeptical before booking. So let me allay your fears, these guys are legit and will show up and get the job done right! We highly recommend Pluto Movers! Thanks again, guys!!

Great communication from the time we booked till the job was finished. Kirk called and got a good idea of what I had and what we needed, in advance. I asked for packing tips and best size/weight for boxes etc. This made it so much easier, knowing the best box size/weight combination to pack, so the job ran smooth.
Kirk gave some advice after I texted him a pic of the packed truck to make it a bit more secure for the trip up.
Kirk kept me updated with an ETA as he was on a prior job. All the guys arrived within the one hour time frame, as promised! But one of the guys showed up earlier than the texted time... but instead of waiting for Kirk (as instructed), he jumped right in and hustled from the moment he arrived. It was Hot, humid and mid-day for a 6th floor walk up. They looked out for all the stuff and even though it was labeled, when it was fragile, he said we treat everything as if it's fragile. Great job Guys!!!
Bottom line:
They called after the job was booked.
They answered all my questions.
They kept me posted on the day of.
They arrived with in the scheduled arrival time window.
They kept me updated on their ETA.
Everyone worked hard from the moment they arrived.
They worked well together.
They looked out for my stuff.
Put everything where we asked.
Took good care of our stuff, all along the way.
Finished on time and I was happy to work with them!
And we would absolutely hire them again!

They were awesome and very careful and reliable. I thought that I needed a 2nd POD but they packed everything so well that I didn’t and actually sent it away as it pulled up. Definitely would recommend them!

Steven and his crew did a wonderful job moving our 1 bedroom apartment into a Pod. They were fast, efficient, careful, and kind. They knew exactly how to stack and tie down the Pod. We couldn't ask for nicer people to work with on a stressful day. We 100% recommend Sebastian Moving!
