Alfa Moving was on-time, worked quickly, and even moved my clothes still on the hangar using a wardrobe box. They were able to move my obnoxiously large couch over a stairway rail since it was too long to make the turn from the walkway into the door.

Did a great job for an affordable rate. Would definitely hire them again!

Pat and other mover, whose name I didn't catch, were friendly, on-time, careful with our stuff and efficient. Pat was a great communicator and gave us helpful tips and advice for our very chaotic move.

Due to a communication error from MIE to the workers, they showed two hours early. But MIE took responsibility, apologized, and the rest of the work (moving furniture and boxes from the house to the U-Boxes) was carried out with great efficiency. The workers, David and Junior, were awesome! I don't use that word much because it is overused. But they deserve the accolade. I will definitely use MIE again. So glad I found it.

The movers I hired to load PODs for a recent interstate move did not properly load the PODs. Specifically, they did not tie down or wrap anything. This resulted in the items shifting significantly in transit.

I used Harris Move to unload my PODs after an interstate move.
They did a fantastic job unloading a mess.

(The movers who loaded the PODs did not tie down or wrap anything, including a 450 year old buffet and a pair of antique mahogany inlay tables, both of which were damaged.)

The Harris Move movers examined the state of the PODS thoroughly and developed a strategy to unload toppled furniture and boxes without causing more damage.

After my last experience with movers (see review for All in One Moving), I watched these movers closely. They successfully unloaded both PODS without causing any additional damage. I was impressed with their competence, hard work, and the care with which they extracted item after toppled item.

I would most definitely use them again.
