These guys are awesome!!! I’ve moved a lot for work and used many different companies, but these guys were the best I’ve ever encountered. Very professional, friendly, efficient and organized. Just all-around great guys! I’ll definitely use again! Highly recommend!
These guys were amazing. They were on time and were so helpful. I needed help getting an elliptical upstairs, they went above and beyond and set it up for me, moved it to a few different locations in the room and then took all the boxes and wrappers out to their truck to dispose of it! Definitely recommend this company.
I would highly recommend "GET A MOVE ON" to friends, family, anyone who needs movers. They arrived on time, were friendly, courteous, respectful of my possessions, and very understanding of the stress involved in moving. They worked quickly and efficiently and I simply couldn't have asked for a better team for my move.
GET A MOVE ON did a fabulous job. We have moved three times in the last year, and they have been by far the best movers we have encountered. They were on time and worked non-stop. They finished in an hour and a half even though they had to carry heavy furniture up two flights of stairs. Actually, another moving company came …Read Moreto move a neighbor in who lives on the first floor a half hour before GET A MOVE ON arrived and GET A MOVE ON finished before the other movers despite climbing up stairs! They even helped to put our beds and dining room table together without being asked. They cleaned the bed of our PENSKE truck and folded the furniture blankets without being asked! They even took our plastic and garbage to the dumpster for us! If you are looking for a company that takes pride in their work, has integrity, and are respectful of you and your property then this is the moving company to hire. I would definitely use them again and will recommend them to others because they go above and beyond the average movers. We are still in shock in how they were able to carry our heavy furniture up the stairs without taking a break or complaining!
The guys were great. We would recommend them to others and use them again in the future if we need help with another move. Billy contacted us the night before the move to confirm their arrival time. They showed up on time and ready to go to work. The brought all the moving pads, dolly's and equipment need to perform the job. The…Read Morey were very efficient at loading our rental truck so that everything fit and were just as efficient at unloading the truck into our storage unit. Billy repeated several times that they were there to help us with our move and make sure that we were happy and they definitely delivered on that promise!
Billy and Darius showed up on time, were extraordinarily careful with my belongings (they treated them as if they were their own), have great attitudes, great communicators, and are all-around solid guys. I'd hire them again in a minute -- they are the best of the best.
Billy and Jennifer were absolutely fantastic. It was evident from the very beginning of the job that they both were very hard and efficient workers and knew how to get the job done. We had them help us move and assemble several chairs, couches, and desks, and they got the job done very well. I wouldn't hesitate to hire them agai…Read Moren.

I really liked the two movers I had, they were very nice. They would of got 5 stars but they did not listen to me when I told them part of my sectional couch had to go over the balcony.

I cannot begin to explain how great these guys are. Billy & Darius arrived AND finished on time and gave our belongings the care and attention they would give if it was there's. Their efficiency and effectiveness was simply outstanding. We were amazed at how well they protected everything they loaded and how much they were able …Read Moreto get in our truck. They did not simply load, they engineered each piece to maximize the space we had in the truck, measuring and analyzing the optimal 'next piece' to load, based on everything we had to move. They were the consummate professionals. They were courteous and ensured we understood what they were doing and why, each step of the way. HIRE THESE GUYS! They are the best. They were 100 time better than the folks we got on the other end to unload (and that's exponentionally easier/quicker!) Very pleased with them. Moving is hard, these guys made it as easy for us as it could be.
They were on time and friendly and worked hard. We had 3 guys instead of 4, so me and my husband helped to empty the storage unit.

Kevin and his team are amazing as always. This is my third time using Get A Move On and as always they go way beyond my expectations.

They were on time, respectful, and busted their butts moving my house. They asked for pictures of any odd or oversized furniture that I might have to ensure they had the proper equipment for the job. I would absolutely use them and recommend them again.
Kevin and his guys were polite, professional, and friendly movers. They coordinated with us beforehand to make sure they had the equipment needed, helped with re-positioning the truck, unloaded all items from our truck carefully and quickly, and asked us where in the new place we wanted everything. They actually finished early, …Read Moreand immediately asked what else they could do for us, helping us configure and arrange furniture.

They did a fantastic job. They worked very hard to get everything into storage and need a raise. Never took a break. They were very sympathetic with the objects that were broken by packers at the start of this move. Will recommend them to everyone we know who is thinking about moving.
If you need help with a local move my wife and I would highly recommend this company. Kevin and his guys were awesome. They made what might otherwise be a stressful situation pleasant and enjoyable.

We have a 1915 crystal china cabinet with curved glass that is irreplaceable. They first wrapped it in cardboard, then bubble wrap, then with blankets. Amazingly we did not have one scratch on any of our furniture. Their skill and care in loading the truck was impressive. I would certainly use them again.
This is the second time I've used GET A MOVE ON and the quality of their service has not wavered. They were on time, hard-working, extremely personalable, and took care of my belongings as if they were their own. Thanks guys! I would definitely use them again.
Kevin and Colton were great. They were right on time and went right to work and did no stop until the job was done.

Being thousands of miles removed I had to rely on people I didn't know to do a job I had never seen. The team of four accomplished the job in the agreed upon time, a feat I thought impossible.

They did an Awesome job completely packed the truck almost perfectly. The only reason I am not 100% happy is because when we talked about the move Kevin stated he would bring an extra guy and didn't. Which would have cut the hours down on the load up. Still a five star service.Show Response

His name was Nate and he was just as good as Kevin and Tom. I am so impressed with them. I would, and have shared their contact info with my friends.

Kevin and Tom saved the day! Proved to be time efficient and results driven in their brief window scheduled. Great, respectful people to be around with exceptional work ethics. Provided all materials necessary to support a move which was an added bonus. I'd hire them again in a heartbeat.

While one was installing the washer/dryer, another was assembling a platform bed, and the others still unpacking to proper places all furniture n boxes.

Kevin and the guys from Get A Move On, were awesome!

They did a great job of loading them in the truck accordingly and so I could get the items off at the correct location and in the order of the stops being made.

I would definitely hire Kevin and his guys again! If you hire them, make sure you're ready for them, because they come ready to work! :)
Pros: Kevin and his crew arrive shortly after the scheduled time (he did call ahead and let me know that he was running late). It was a late June Saturday and was very hot. They all worked very hard and the heat did not slow them down. They brought plenty of moving pads and straps. Cons: I am glad that I had a couple extra …Read Moreweeks to unpack before writing my review. My only regret is that I did not pay attention to the packing of the truck. Even though there were plenty of pads some of the items were still scratched. I should have been more involved in the packing.

The hard work and get it done attitude was great but I think I as the home owner I should have had paid more attention in the loading of the truck.Show Response

Once I submitted my request for moving labor help, he called promptly to go over the request and the items that needed to be moved. He called again the day before to confirm the move date and time, and to ensure that he and his team would arrive by the time I had requested. The movers arrived on time, and immediately began to help. Kevin even parked the u-haul truck so it was in the most beneficial position to make the move as seamless as possible. They were very professional and friendly, and experts at what they do. The truck was packed with care and very organized. I even had a neighbor stop by while unloading the truck and they mentioned how neatly the truck had been packed. In fact, NO items were broken or damaged! They also moved a chair to the dumpster at my apartment complex that I no longer wanted and had planned to throw away on my own. They were very efficient and moved all the items I needed moved in one hour. I was so impressed with them and would recommend them to anyone. I only wish they could have unloaded the truck, but I moved out of state. Thanks Guys!
Kevin and Tom from Get A Move On were FANTASTIC! From start to finish, they exceeded my expectations.

They were great! Showed up on time. They hit the ground running and wasted no time getting started. Loaded the truck perfectly... With room to spare. They even fixed the loose leg on my dinning room table. I highly recommend this company!! Very professional. Worth Every penny!
Did an absolutely fantastic job in packing for a move across states. Utilized space in truck to the nth degree. They were fast as lightening, willing to go the extra mile, guys very warm and friendly. Best movers ever! You should would definitely hire these guys ! I would do so again in a minute!!
Kevin and Tom we're awesome! We were a bit nervous because we ordered a Pod with same day pick up, so our packing window was tight and our delivery time was very general. Kevin was willing to be flexible with us and they were so efficient we ended up with plenty of time to spare. The Pod was pack like a Tetris master had done it…Read More. It was so tight we could have had more stuff! We've had some really terrible moving experiences with people who didn't care and moved like snails. Kevin called a couple times to make sure we had everything covered, brought extra supplies, and was great to work with. Schedule with Get A Move On. They make moving incredible easy.
Kevin and Tom were beyond awesome! I am sick as a dog and needed help moving into our new house.

Kevin and Tom did a great job. Kevin called to check-in with me prior to our service and asked about some details so that they were properly prepared for the job.

I scheduled these guys to help me move and they were great! Kevin was very nice and called a few days ahead of time to learn about what I needed done and what time worked best for me.

They were very hard workers and very respectful to not damage any of my furniture. I would definitely use them again. I recommend them to anyone. Thanks guys!
I would hire these guys again without hesitation! Customer friendly, honest and efficient are just a few words that describe my experience with these gentlemen. If you need someone to move you - look no further than this group. Hire without hesitation!
Kevin and Byron did an awesome job!! They were on time and very professional. They took great care of my things, ensuring not to scratch/damage any of my furniture. They finished the job ahead of schedule. I'd definitely hire them again and refer them to all of my friends.
Tom and Charlie were very punctual. In fact, they arrived at my house a couple of minutes early. They were very courteous, and did an excellent job loading/unloading my things. I would definitely use their services again. I highly recommend GET A MOVE ON.
They did a good Job. Although they showed up late they made up for it by their quality of work. I would recommend them to anyone who needs a third hand moving.Show Response

Tom and Drew were fantastic! They kept me updated on their arrival time and were willing to work around my schedule. They worked quickly and efficiently, completing my move in under two hours. I plan on hiring Get A Move On, and would ask for Tom and Drew, for any and all of my future moving needs.
They called promptly to confirm the details, and our two movers, Tom and Drew, called me that day to confirm. They were on time and prepared for the job. It involved moving quite a bit of furniture, some of which was very heavy, and they worked hard throughout the afternoon.

Get A Move On did a wonderful job! We were scheduled for noon, but when I realized I would be getting in earlier than planned I called and they worked me into an earlier time slot.

Amazing! These guys came on our scheduled even though we changed it within an hour of the start time and made it when we called them hours later.

Both Kevin and John with Get A Move On did an outstanding job helping my mom move. They gave up their 4th of July holiday to work in the blazing heat. They were super efficient, extremely respectful with my mom, her belongings, and both her residences. Kevin called multiple times between accepting the job and the morning of the …Read Morejob, so we were never concerned that they would not show up the day of the move. Kevin gathered initial details for the move, advised of the supplies he would bring, and assured us his team would be present. They moved EVERYTHING in a single trip...including all her plants and rocks! They even hooked up ma's washer and dryer in the new place and installed a new ceiling fan for her. So, yes, they worked extremely hard and non stop. And, yes, we would use them again and recommend to anyone who needed assistance moving. We're very happy we found Get A Move On thru Hire a Helper.
They were very flexible. I needed to move 2 days early and they were able to reschedule for me. An hour before they were to show up for the rescheduled time we found out our truck was not returned and had to put the loaders on hold until we could figure out our truck issue. We finally got a truck the next day. With very little n…Read Moreotice, they squeezed my job in around their other jobs that evening. I have never seen 2 more hardworking men in my life. Four straight hours of work with the occasional stop for a drink of water or to measure a piece of furniture to find the perfect fit. Everything fit on my truck and everything made it to the new location in the same condition it was put on in. They brought rope to tie the load, loaned us tools to take a crib apart while they worked on heavier things, brought free plastic wrap to wrap dressers so drawers stayed closed. They called next day to check on how the load made it. Very impressed with the work they did. Would hire again if I were still in the area. Recommending to all of my military friends that are always on the move.
4.5 stars is more accurate, but I rounded up. Lots of good things to say about Kevin and his helper: they were on time, they were prepared for the job, they brought their own equipment (pads, etc.), they respected my property and I would use them again. I was a little annoyed that on the loading part I made more trips up and…Read More down the stairs than Kevin. My thought was that since I'm in my seventh decade of life, the plan should be executed to have others running the stairs more than me. However, Kevin was supervising the fitting of the "stuff" into the truck, and he did a superior job since it all fit and only one thing was broken. Very likely I do not understand the complexity of the "measuring" part of the job. In the end, I got a great work-out, and the move was accomplished successfully and inexpensively. Kevin is also to be complimented for his extensive vocabulary! (I'm not joking, and I'm not referring to profanity.) So, moving and English lessons, what more could you ask?Show Response
Greetings Bruce and thank you for the review. We never ask or even expect customers to participate on a moving job. Your son in law and yourself did it voluntarily and it was greatly appreciated . After getting the major pieces in I do need to wrap n pad for transport .With 3 people bringing me boxes , etc. I tried to keep the job flowing.

I hired Get a Move On for some assistance getting the heavier items we own into our new house, mostly furniture.

Kevin and Steve personify professionalism. They arrived on time as promised and brought materials just in case…. When they arrived, the entered my home and asked for a tour. Then, they asked me what my expectations were. As I spoke, they were genuinely interested in my desires and attentively listened. I was in need of a quick, …Read Morebut precise load. They indicated that they’d do the best that they could and followed through on their word. They took great care of my belongings and the home I rented—that is, the home was cleaner after they left than before they arrived and they handled my belongings as if the items were theirs. They were friendly and went beyond their normal duties. My vehicle was parked at the truck rental location and they offered to drive me to get it and follow me back for assurance purposes. Kevin and Steve are wonderful men, superb movers and individuals who take pride in their profession. I highly recommend them to anyone in need of their services.
Kevin and Jonah were a pleasure to work with. They showed up on time and immediately got to work. From the beginning they told me they would need additional time, but they got a 26' truck packed floor-to-ceiling in ~5 hours--quite a feat considering they moved over 10,000 lbs of stuff down 2 flights of stairs in the process! …Read More(Would likely have been even faster if we were fully packed when they arrived.) Only disappointment was that they didn't wrap some furniture in blankets/plastic wrap and several pieces got scratched or scuffed in transit. That said I was busy packing the remaining odds & ends so I wasn't down at the truck to request this before they loaded those items. Also, I had only provided 4dz blankets when Kevin had asked for at least 5dz when we talked prior to the move, so perhaps they just ran out of blankets. Thankfully most damaged pieces were <$100 each so it won't be terribly expensive to fix or replace them. Would 100% use "Get a Move On" again, even with this minor grievance. Kevin is a very down-to-earth guy, very flexible and easy to work with. His company is leaps and bounds better than any traditional moving company I've dealt with, and I love supporting an honest, hard-working small businessman. Certainly a great option for the military DITY mover looking for some help loading or unloading the truck!
I was totally impressed with our helpers from Get A Move On. They where on time, well organized and did a great job packing our truck. I traveled over 100 miles and nothing moved! Great packing job.

Arrived on time, ready to work. Asked the right questions in the telephone contact. Provided good loading for a long distance move that had a lot of heavy/bulky items. They filled two 26' trucks in a short time and everything arrived in good shape . Kevin and crew did a great job.
Kevin and his team were punctual and went above and beyond the call in helping. They had everything to make the move easy. They were careful moving everything into our new place. Nothing broken, dented or walls scraped. They did great! I would definitely use them again.
When I hired these guys, I was expecting some muscle to help get my truck loaded for a 1000 mile move, fully expecting to have to do the arranging in the truck, tying down, securing, what have you. However, I couldn't have been more wrong! Kevin and Steve arrived on time (and communicated their arrival time very effectivel…Read Morey) and immediately went to work loading up the truck. Seeing them arrange everything like some real-life 3D Tetris game was rather impressive. They were careful and very precise with their packing. They used my rented furniture pads to make sure everything was securely packed, and tied everything down periodically to prevent load shifting. They also helped with some minor furniture disassembly. I didn't feel they rode the clock at all. They finished up within the time I expected, and all was well in the land. We even had some good laughs that morning. Everything arrived in FL just as it was in VA. Hiring these guys to help check one of the many items off my to-do list for this move was some of the best money I've ever spent. Thanks so much Kevin and Steve, and good luck. PS - To people preparing to move, splurge on renting a couple dozen furniture pads from your truck rental place... they're quite worth it.
They were awesome. Really friendly guys. They showed up on time and got everything done that I wanted them to. They were even flexible, because I didn't know what time my truck would arrive. They took great care of all of my stuff. I would recommend them to anyone, and I would use them again.
