Angel and his co-worker did a wonderful job! They had a complicated stairway and hallway to deal with but they did the job without complaining, no damage and cleaned up. Thank you, guys! I appreciate your hard work! I would DEFINITELY use Top Shelf Movers again if the need arises.
Will and Joseph were wonderful! They were so fast and efficient my head was spinning, and they were personable and friendly. The minute I met them I was totally confident that that they were the right men for the job. In no time flat, they took everything out of a big mess of a storage unit and moved everything to the new, small…Read Moreer unit. They packed the new unit so beautifully that I have more empty floor space in the smaller unit than I had in the bigger unit, and definitely could have gone even smaller. I would recommend these guys in a heartbeat - they were fantastic, honest, hard-working, careful with my breakables, super efficient and very nice.
While the workers themselves were fine and worked hard for two hours, the company charged me for three hours. They claim i agreed to min of 3 hours work. Even the the invoice clearly states i agreed to pay for at least 2hrs at $250 for 2 men to load truck and IF they went over the 2 hrs i would pay an additional 80 an hour. S…Read Moreo basically they ripped me off for 80!!Show Response
The client booked our services for 3 hours. Our crew worked diligently, efficiently and professionally throughout the time. They were able to complete the job in 2 hours. The invoice provided showed 3 hours were booked into our schedule. Hireahelper does not refund for extra time. We did not rip anyone off, we simply finished the job one hour earlier than anticipated by the client. Client is upset refund was not provided even though we did a phenomenal job and she released the payment to us anyways. Not fair

Christian and Luciano were hard-working, very safe, energetic, and very amiable! I enjoyed working with them and having them take care of my personal belongings. I would highly recommend them to anyone anytime, and will use top shelf again if I have moving needs in the future.
These guys were fantastic! I was hesitant about hiring movers, since I have always just hoofed it with friends. But let me tell You, it's worth it! They arrived on time in their window, were polite, and by God were they strong and efficient. I hired two guys to unload my truck and bring everything onto the 3rd floor of my apartm…Read Moreent. I was dumbfounded by how fast and efficient they were - without any instruction. I just pointed and they were set. They had zero complaints, and finished everything in 1.25 hours - clearing a 16 foot truck. Took great care of my items. Would definitely hire again.
These were NOT professional movers. Pretty sure they just hired people off of the street. These men had no idea how to move our stuff and we were literally moving to another apartment within our complex. They were visibly annoyed and ran after me after I had already paid them for extra time because it took them so long to figure…Read More out how to move our boxes. At one point they had my bed on the roof of their car. I would not recommend these movers at all.Show Response
We always do a professional job with our highly experienced crew. client moved from a building to another building that was on the complete Other side of complex, there was no truck. With improvisations our crew used hand trucks and our vehicles to move stuff in less time then it should've. Upon completion of job 3hours later we were only paid 2.5hr Once we finally spoke to the client we were told the rest would be added at a later time we never got full pay. Unrealistic and Unreasonable

PLUSES: The two guys were on time, pleasant, and dove right in. In addition, it was easy to book the service. MINUSES: I hired Top Shelf Movers for its expertise in loading moving trucks, wanting to make sure that my belongings would emerge from the move in one piece. While the guys worked energetically and quickly, much of the …Read Morecontents were just loosely packed. When we opened the back of the truck just 20 minutes and 5 miles later, some stuff fell right out of the back of the truck! A friend and I spent over half an hour repacking things so they wouldn't shift. In addition, I paid $248 for up to two hours of service, but after an hour and fifteen minutes the guys reported they were done and went on their way. That's rather generous pay for simple box carrying.
They did a great job - everything was handled well and carefully, the job got done very quickly and I was relieved to know my move was taken care of. Would definitely recommend! I have used Top Shelf twice within the past year and would use again.
Will and Joseph were phenomenal. We can't say enough about how hard they worked. They were on time and rocked the entire move from the moment they got here. We had lots of books and heavy boxes. We also had some weird unwieldy furniture. Beginning to end, they hustled and made it happen. They were efficient, awesome, and just gr…Read Moreeat. We would use them again in a heartbeat and we would recommend them to anyone. They were fantastic! We are so grateful for their help!!!!
Will and Joseph showed up ready to work. They were courteous and extremely respectful of our property. They worked very hard and wasted no time. In fact, they finished in less time than I contracted for. It was an in house move whereby the furniture was moved from the upper level to the main living level and the garage. Eve…Read Morerything was moved without any banging or damage to any of the furniture or the walls. Everything needs to be moved back in about a week and a half. I have already contracted Top Shelf and have requested that Will And Joseph be assigned to us if possible. I am confident that even if it is another team, we will enjoy the same pleasant experience.
Amazing job!! Professional ontime and quick! I had 2 guys to help unload a truck into my new house and as stuff was coming off and I had to decide where to put things they were so patient and even gave input on where things would look best. They truly cared about my personal belongings and respected all my items as they were han…Read Moredling them. This is the first time I used them and would defiantly recommend to anyone who needs help moving!
My entire experience from ordering the service to the execution of the service was spectacular. The customer service from hire a helper was outstanding and the gentlemen from Top Helf were fast, friendly and efficient I will define use both Hire A Helper and top shelf in the future! Thank you all!
Angel and Alexis from Top Shelf Movers were awesome! They arrived promptly, sized up the situation and proceeded to take all the worry out of my move. I had family helping as well, but we did much less than I expected because these guys practically did it all. They moved me from an upstairs apartment with stairs to another apart…Read Morement with 2 flights of stairs quickly and efficiently. They were also friendly, polite, and respectful of my belongings. Hiring them was very well worth the money.
Top shelf called and said they would be ten min. late. They had to carry a double dresser & chest of drawers up a wrap-a- round staircase. They were hard workers, Didn't touch walls with furniture. I would use them again. (One of the reasons I picked Top Shelf is there reviews getting furniture up narrow staircases.)
Wonderful movers! They were on time and worked extremely hard. They were efficient and knew how to move large pieces of furniture. No damage to walls or to the furniture. As a team they communicated well to each other and to us. We are recommending your service to everyone we talk to. We made a mistake to hire a local mover …Read Morefor our second home and they did not show up . We recommend Hire a Helper and specifically the two men we hired in Chatham.
Two cheerful men showed up at my door to muscle a couple of heavy pieces of furniture down a flight of stairs and into my u-haul truck. While they were on-site, I asked them to load some boxes as well. All was done with a smile and without a scratch to the furnishings. I'm happy with a job well-done.
I would absolutely use them again! It was a snowy day and they called before they came to tell me arrival time. They were right on time!! Hard working, polite, courteous & finished the job on time. I never used Hire-a-Helper before but will certainly use again. THANK YOU. Lois Schutz
They were not on time because apparently their previous job went over time. A timely call from the company would have been helpful to advise me of the delay. I had to call. I'm sure they had the tools for assembling furniture. One of them asked if I had tools and used my cordless drill. They worked very hard and were always…Read More respectful of property, goods, and me. Yes, I would use them again.
Top Shelf Movers were a lifesaver for my move! They were on time and got to work right away. They were professional, efficient, and careful with my belongings. On top of all that, they were nice, friendly guys! When we got to my new second floor apartment with a tight, narrow staircase, they tried extremely hard to figure out…Read More how to get my couch up the stairs. It was a very hot day and they did not stop! They were very quick and finished ahead of schedule. We had 20 minutes left in our booked time slot after they were finished and they even asked if there was anything else we needed. I would absolutely hire Top Shelf movers again!
I accidentally booked for the wrong day but that was no problem! Christian worked with me to sort out my mistake. In the end his people showed up early (they called to make sure that was ok). They were polite, friendly and worked their tails off. I would highly recommend this team!
Top Shelf Movers showed up exactly on time and were fantastic. As others mentioned they did show up with an extra person who helped do the wrapping while the other two did the moving. They were prepared and worked very hard to wrap and protect all our items before loading our storage container. They packed it better than I cou…Read Moreld have imagined and fit more in than we expected. The heat was brutal and they did not want to accept water or Gatorade but I kept giving it to them and they were very thankful. I plan to hire them once we are in our new home to unpack for us.
The crew were terrific, and went above and beyond to make our move as smooth as possible. These guys work hard! I tried to label and stage things in advance, but when they encountered anything that wasn't clear, they promptly asked for guidance. Very courteous, very respectful. I would (and will!) use Top Shelf again, and would…Read More recommend them wholeheartedly.
We had Eddie and Freddie for both the packing and unpacking of our 2 houses and they were absolutely fantastic!!! Came on time, very professional, and loaded and unloaded the trucks with care. They worked very hard and made sure all of our furniture was taken apart and assembled back correctly. I would recommend them to everyone…Read More! Thanks Top shelf!!!
The two young men Freddy and Eddie arrived early and began their assessment of the move to determine a loading strategy moving forward. Afterwards, they immediately began to stage the loading of the boxes and furniture in front of the apt in anticipation of the arrival of the truck, which was on time. They were respectful and …Read Morecourteous at all times. They both worked hard and did a good job! The only recommendations I would make is that they would invest in their own hand trucks and tools. Otherwise, job well done, and I would use them again.
Eddie and Adolf were very professional, pleasant and respectful. Arrived on time, worked extremely hard and carefully, no damage to any belongings! This was a move from the third floor, down tight stairs, on a hot day. Packed truck very carefully! I would strongly recommend Top Shelf Movers. Using HireAHelper was also a very suc…Read Morecessful and pleasant experience.
Very happy with the services provided. Affordable and just what I was looking for. Hired two helpers for two hours and everything went smoothly moving my one bedroom 2nd floor apartment into a mobile storage unit. The helpers were very nice and worked efficiently. Highly recommended!
They did a great job... my only complaint was tape was put on the furniture veneer which peeled the veneer off when I pulled the tape off... although I am not sure they were the ones who put the tape on or if it was a family member, anyhow don't put sticky tape on old, thin veneer.
They were on time. Did job pretty quick. I booked them for 4 hours and they were done in 3 hr 15 mins that includes travelling from my old house to new house which is about 30 min drive. Im extremely happy with them and all three of them were very nice.
Very satisfied. The two young men were very respectful and very careful with my furniture and newly refinished floors. They were on time and were done ahead of schedule. I would definitely recommend Top Shelf Movers and intend to use them again when my townhouse sells and I'm ready to move.
The two guys who worked for us were punctual and ready to get to work. They worked hard and handled the items they moved carefully. At times they offered me valuable advice. I found them respectful of me and great to work with. I'm glad I hired Top Shelf Movers. I highly recommend them and would certainly hire them again.
They arrived on time and were quick, clean and efficient. Had all the right tools and took care not to scuff walls and doorways as they moved a refrigerator and other large items up and down stairs and thru hallways. Will definitely use them again if needed.
Top Shelf Movers did an amazing job helping me move on 10/22/15! I requested 2 movers for 3 hours. They showed up exactly on time and didn't waste a second getting right to work. We ended up taking closer to 5 hours, but the movers were very accommodating and patient the whole time. The movers were very careful with our furn…Read Moreiture, taking the time to wrap glass pieces and not scratch our dresses/dining set. Not to mention they were very friendly and good company for what could have been a very stressful day. I would definitely hire Top Shelf Movers again!
Dawon and Edwin came on time for the 10am move. Even though I just scheduled for a 2-hour move, they managed to get everything done in 2 hours. I can see that they were very careful when moving my furniture, avoiding any kind of scratch or damage. They are polite and hard-working. They made sure what were going to the new locati…Read Moreon (coz not the whole family was moving) and asked again to make sure so that I didn't miss anything. We finished on time and chatted for a bit afterwards. I would use them if I have another move.
Wow. These guys were awesome. Just moved to New Providence. They helped me unload a 28 foot trailer in just under three hours! They were on time, prepared, hustled the whole time, were careful with all of our stuff, and you could tell they knew what they were doing to be able to maneuver all the stuff they did. I'd definitel…Read Morey use them again. Thanks guys!
Top Shelf Movers did an excellent job on my move. I was moving items from one PackRat container to another and they were there promptly and took care of the job. When my furniture arrived, it was neatly packed and organized and I was able to remove it from the container without any trouble. I would certainly use them again…Read More. They were professional and got the job done!
Christian and Raoul were absolutely wonderful: my truck arrived early, so they promptly responded and came well ahead of schedule. They packed up everything speedily (well under two hours!), and they were so good natured and extremely careful with my things. They efficiently stacked everything in the trailer space I rented - and…Read More here's the amazing part - I rented 5' of space and they packed everything neatly into 4' - which is saving me money. I highly, highly recommend them. Thank you, guys!!!
Juan and Juan were sent to help out with my move. They were prompt, professional and efficient. We had booked 6 feet on a moving truck, and Juan and Juan made sure that everything fit in our allotted space. Our move was complicated by the fact that the truck had to be staged about 100 yards from our condo, so everything had to b…Read Moree moved twice. Juan and Juan were unfazed by that and got the job done in great time. I would hire them again.
Amazing! Courteous, thoughtful, professional. It was a long move with lots of stairs. They worked hard and never complained. Every little thing I asked for they completed with out hesitation. The fellow loading the truck had excellent skills. (This is important to keep your stuff from flying around when the truck is movi…Read Moreng + to get all of your stuff in the truck) They were an excellent team and I would recommend them to anyone.
The owner was very flexible and understanding with our moving situation. His men showed up on time, and they were very professional. I was very pleased with how well they packed our POD, and took extra care with fragile things. I plan to use them to unpack our POD when we move to our house.
I needed some heavy, high end furniture moved from a large storage container into my home. I called at the last minute and the following day the 2 guys from Top Shelf Movers showed up, very friendly and ready to work. They were able to move everything out of the container and into my home within 3 hours! They were courteous,…Read More reasonably priced and took very good care of the furniture. That's almost unheard of to find this combination from movers. I will definitely use them again, and I would highly recommend them. Thanks, Guysl
Christian and his helper were awesome! They adjusted the time to an earlier one since we arrived early. They were professional, courteous, respectful of our items and worked really hard. I would recommend them highly!!! They finished quickly and efficiently!!!!
Friendly, helpful and professional. These guys were the BEST. They were on time and efficient. We ended early because they moved so fast. Got down to work right away and didn't complain about the ridiculously heavy things we asked them to move. I would (and probably will) use them again.
The owner called before arrival to tell me the names of the two helpers who would do the job. They arrived early and we're very hard workers. The job was a Friday evening but they stayed until it was done. Good experience and I would recommend them.
On-time, Excellent work - Definite Recommendation On June 25, 2013 we used Top Shelf Movers to help move items from my mother-in-law's house in NJ. We live in CA and were flying to NJ to accomplish this move. We scheduled Top Shelf Movers on-line a couple of weeks before the move. We were apprehensive about arranging this r…Read Moreemotely, but Chris Cardoso of Top Shelf Movers set us at ease by confirming the details over the phone. They arrived on-time and handled all items with care. It was a very hot humid day and not an easy move as the unloading was into a second floor apartment up a long narrow stairway. They managed this exceptionally well, including the bulky heavy items like a sofa bed and an old style large TV (not flat screen). They worked hard, finishing in less time than we expected. We would certainly use them again.
They were very professional and courtious. They arrived in a timely manner and was mindful of my property. They moved a heavy treadmill to the 3rd floor and moved the old broken treadmill to the garage. I am very happy with the service and would not hesitate to recommend or call them again.
Excellent job! They guys were prompt and courteous. They moved my outdoor kitchen from the patio to the deck. Some of the pieces were a little awkward and they had to make some onsite adjustments. No problem they go the job done. I will definitely use them again.
I hired the guys at Top Shelf Movers to move my biggest and heaviest furniture, without a truck, from a building on one side of the parking lot to a building on the opposite side. Both apartments were second floor and they were reserved for 2 hours. They worked their tails off, were friendly, and respected both the furniture a…Read Morend the apartments. I'm disappointed to see that there aren't many reviews, but I'm sure in no time their profile will be full of five star reviews. I've already recommended them to all of my friends in the area and I wish them the best.
I highly recommend TOP SHELF MOVERS. I had a lot of things to move. This is what the professional movers of TOP SHELF did for me me: - Fantastic comprehension of the instructions and needs, - Amazing skills of organization, - Ability to pack to get every inch out of my truck and more, - Strong and fast movers, - M…Read Moreade the stress of moving very easy for me.
