They were scheduled between 12 and 1 pm. They got to our house at 12:20 and worked nonstop and fast! Conner was professional and his team was very polite and easy to talk to. Conner led his team throughout the move. I would certainly recommend his service!

The guys were really nice and efficient. But they spent 45 minute to an hour trying to figure out how to get the sofa out of the apartment. That added an extra hour to our contract. The sofa came into the apartment without a hitch 3 years prior - no doors were removed nor light fixtures. It was a spatial challenge for them for sure. We didn't have many items and it could have been a 2 hour or under job. But they were really nice and took care of our stuff. I didn't know they wrapped stuff in plastic as part of the the move. Everything was taken care of - the only hitch was the amount of time spent on figuring out how to get the sofa out around various angles.

Austin and Cameron were great. So professional, courteous, helpful, respectful, and nice. Wish I could have them unload my container when I get to North Carolina. Thanks so much!

Highly recommend. Arrived promptly, including a courtesy call when 15 min away. Came prepared with tools and other supplies. I especially appreciated the occasional updates with estimates of how much time and work was left and providing me with two courses of action.
All charges were up front with no hidden or extra charges assessed.
I will use MovingZoom again in the future!

This was actually 5 Star’s 2nd time helping us with unloading our Pod containers. They were awesome. The owner Lucas reached out to me twice prior to the scheduled date. Once to let me know he accepted the job and the second time to confirm who I would be working with and what to expect. He even suggested cutting an extra guy & saving us money. Lucas sent Carlos and 3 other guys to help and they were nothing but professional, quick, and hard working. They came to get the job done and that’s what they did with no complaints. Would definitely recommend 5 Star Moving for unloading help!

Friendly, fast, professional, and took care of my items. For example, they noticed that one of my dressers would be safer if they removed the legs, so they did. They didn’t half azz anything!
