Craig and his team did a great job for me loading and unloading the moving van. This is the second time I've used Cherry Wood Movers, and not only is Craig and his team always on time, they are professional, efficient and pack and unload everything without a scratch or blemish. I wouldn't use any other moving company should the need arise; Cherry Wood is the best out there.

Would highly recommend not using this company they caused so much damage to my items. They fought on how to load my truck when they were finished loading the truck it look like a bunch of kindergartners loaded my truck. They damaged a Brand New Couch and several other items and a very expensive Horse oil painting they stood on all my boxes to try to load boxes higher up instead of using a chair or step stool they chose to use my boxes and Furniture I have pictures of the way the truck was loaded as well as all the damage they caused. I moved from Arizona to Connecticut and when I did that I had a 26 foot budget truck. When I got to Connecticut things didn't work out so I move back to Arizona which was only a week later nothing was ever unpacked and did not inquire any additional items to be loaded in fact I got rid of about a 5 x 8 trailer full of items. This company could not get all of the items back in the exact same truck and caused me to have to go bring a 5 x 8 trailer to tow back from Connecticut to Arizona which cost me additional money because again they decided to fight over how they were gonna load the truck instead of working together as a team very unprofessional company do not recommend using at all also they showed up late and were two men short for the first two hours

Mover's response:
This customer a husband, wife, and three kids had just driven from Arizona to CT unpacked everything into his house and the very next day started packing everything back into the truck to go back to Arizona this probably caused him a lot of stress. Boxes were not in good shape due to being moved several times and not packed correctly to begin with. The customer put in their order 12 hours before the job began. I discussed the logistics of the job the night before .He understood that on such short notice it would be difficult to get four workers. He was instructed to get furniture pads which he did not. The couches needed furniture pads consequently damage was done to the netting underneath the couch. The painting and boxes were damaged from the move to CT. I suggested he repack some of the boxes but he said no I told him to pad and rope the boxes. He told me no and to just put them in the truck this was said with definite attitude. Unfortunately he would not take our advice as the moving labor helpers who do this for a living. I think I was a patsy for a insurance claim to get some money back from move to CT and then right back to Arizona.

Craig and his crew were great at communicating and showed up right on time. They knew their stuff, which turned out to be critical to fitting all my junk into the truck I'd rented. TETRIS MASTERS.

(5) 7/30/2017 Seymour

Truly excellent movers. They know exactly what they doing and it shows that they have plenty of experience. I couldn't believe how efficiently they were able to pack a 20' truck. Care and attention was taken the entire time. I have zero hesitation recommending them.

Amazing group, punctual, great communication, excellent organization and packing. I would definitely use them again!

(5) 5/16/2017 Manchester

These guys know what they're doing! They packed our 16' Pack Rat professionally and were pleasant to work with. They were on time and I would use them again if they wanted to follow me out to Utah!!

(5) 5/5/2017 Niantic

They did an outstanding job of unloading the pod quickly in rainy and windy weather! They were on time and worked hard. We would not hesitate to use them again!

Brenda B

(5) 1/7/2017 Waterford

They arrived right on time. They worked very hard and had the whole pod loaded in a little over an hour. I would not hesitate to use them again!

(5) 9/30/2016 Farmington

Good guys. Did well securely loading stuff into the pod.

Richard S

(5) 9/23/2016 Amston

Craig and his crew did an excellent job. They arrived on time and were very professional. I could not believe the amount of furniture they were able to put in a 16 foot container. Definately will use them again and highly recommend their services.

Thomas H

(5) 9/16/2016 West Simsbury

Craig and his team from Cherry Wood Movers worked incredibly hard from start to finish and crammed more stuff into the containers than I could possibly believe while taking good care of the house and our belongings. Due to their efficient packing, we saved on renting an additional container! Craig communicated frequently prior to the start to ensure all materials he needed were ready which prevented any wasted timing, and was then flexible during the move making sure that we got all of the assistance that we needed. I would absolutely recommend them!

Nancy P

(5) 9/2/2016 New Britain

The guys were there when they said they would and worked extremely hard to get the job done!

Jared K

(5) 7/9/2016 West Hartford

This crew did a fantastic job, and for that alone get 5 stars. But above and beyond that, they did two things that really helped my family out: with less than 24 hours notice, due to an incorrect pod getting delivered to our house, I asked to postpone the services until the correct pod was delivered. Craig said, "okay, no problem, we'll work with you to get things done." Which they did, graciously, professionally, and also with relatively short notice. Secondly, they managed to get an oversized two-section couch into the older house we moved into...a house designed long before enormous sofas roamed the earth. The three of them quickly worked out a way to get it through the kitchen by removing a door, and they got it done. Simply put, these guys can manage to get a square peg through a round hole. Once we we learn the area and determine where we want to buy our home, we'll hire Cherry Wood to make that move as well. Thanks guys, we appreciate it!

They unloaded a pod in half the time I expected. Expert with the dollies and the various professional movers straps, they carried much more per trip from the pod to the destinations within the house than I thought possible. Likeable, polite, intelligent, energetic and hard workers, I'm keeping contact info for Cherry Wood Movers where I'll find it next time.

Stephanie M

(5) 6/23/2016 Milford

They were great! Called and were right on time, stayed in great contact during the entire move from beginning to end. Were very careful with all my military uniforms and gear, and got the job done in a great timely manner. Will definitely be using their services again the next time I move!

(5) 6/13/2016 Branford

The movers were, first of all, willing and able to accommodate my needed postponement of the moving date; they arrived on time, with plenty of coordination about their arrival ahead of time and with the tools they needed (I supplied tie-back rope and blankets to cover the furniture; they worked quickly, efficiently, constantly, cheerfully, with care taken to pack the container well and with respect towards all the goods; they even moved items that weren't being packed but needed to be shifted out of the house; they were cheerful, friendly and polite. I recommend Cherry Wood Movers to anyone for his or her moving needs, and I would use them again if I need movers in the CT/NY/MA area. I thank them.

Angela V

(5) 5/21/2016 North Branford

Craig and Anthony were on time and very professional. They did a fantastic job of protecting my furniture and loading it into my storage container with precision. I couldn't believe they fit my whole condo in the container! I would highly recommend Cherrywood Movers and plan to use them again in the future!

Janet S

(5) 5/5/2016 Milford

Cherry Wood movers helped make my move seamless. They were punctual and accommodating when my POD delivery time was altered. They efficiently moved my items to where I needed them and were careful with my possessions. Bravo!

(5) 5/3/2016 Niantic

Graig and Mike arrived on time. They had all the equipment with them to move our stuff. They did a great job, very helpful and accompanying. They moved a few things for us twice which was extremely helpful. I would highly reccome d them again, they did a fantastic job!

(5) 12/22/2015 Guilford

If you're looking for moving labor help, stop now and pick Cherry Wood. They arrived on-time, packed my truck with care and went the extra mile to wrap furniture, disassemble items, and more. An outstanding job.

(5) 11/6/2015 East Haddam

I hired Craig and his crew on two different days. They worked extremely hard on both days. They were very careful with our belongings and with our home. I would definitely use them again.

Paul F

(5) 10/30/2015 Rocky Hill

Job well done! Very happy with the entire experience. I hired 2 helpers for 2 hours to help fill my POD with my heavy furniture. In actuality, 2 movers and 1 coordinator came with my order - 2 moved the furniture and 1 arranged everything economically into the POD. They arrived on time, worked hard, were careful with my stuff, and would definitely use them again!

Lori C

(5) 10/27/2015 Somers

Although the job started 3 hours later than scheduled, and yes they called, we were very satisfied with our helpers. They worked extremely hard and were very polite. They helped make this stressful time for my elderly mother so much easier. Thank you!

(5) 10/4/2015 Hamden

Craig and Gideon were amazing beyond belief! They arrived on time and prepared, and worked steadily and very hard for 7-1/2 hours -- and we had contracted for only 4 hours. Our situation was a difficult one, that might have made many movers pretty grumpy, but these two were cheerful and helpful the whole day. Fortunately, we had provided a very detailed description of the challenges of our move, and Craig told us the day before that he believed that it was likely to take longer than 4 hours, but that they would be prepared to stay until the job was done. He also told us the day of the move that he was able to predict from the description what the situation would be, so he was prepared to deal with it. They were careful with our goods, thoughtful as to how they went about their work, and encouraging to us about what needed to be done. Had we not moved across the country, we would be delighted to hire them again (and wish they were here to help us unload). They were great.

(5) 10/2/2015 Westfield

Eric and Gideon did a fantastic job wrapping everything up and getting the truck loaded. I could tell right off the bat that they had experience doing this work, so I just let them have at it. My only input was on which furniture pads to use up first and what was not going on the truck. They did a first rate job with everything, including securing the load properly in the vehicle. Nothing moved on the trip to Pennsylvania, not in the slightest. As far as I know at this point, nothing got broken either. There was only a slight abrasion on one piece of furniture, probably due to a bit of relative movement with what had been placed on top, but this is not an issue. Everything else was fine. The guys had to work a bit later on something prior to my job, but they kept me informed of an updated arrival time. They were totally prepared for the job, including a tool kit for disassembling legs on furniture etc. They worked very hard non-stop until the job was completed, and they were very careful with all my stuff. I would not hesitate to use these fellows again if I had a need. Thank you for a great move and all the terrific help.

They came on time, they were kind, courteous, and had I no problems with them. I recommend them highly.

Jeff M

(5) 9/11/2015 Torrington

Both gentlemen were prompt, knowledgeable, professional and courteous. Our move involved packing two UPack ReloCubes, and the guys did a great job fitting all of our possessions into the limited space while ensuring nothing was scratched or crushed. We highly recommend them.

Aaron P

(5) 9/4/2015 Wallingford

All four guys, Craig, Mike, Anthony, and Adrian arrived 10 minutes early, ready to work. They spent 6 hours loading and unloading two 16' trucks worth of stuff to my new house. They were careful, respectful, and I would absolutely recommend them to anyone looking for high quality, hard-working movers.

Nicholas T

(5) 8/26/2015 Groton

Originally hired 4 guys but only 3 were able to make it. However this had no impact on the job. It went a little bit longer than originally scheduled but Craig was very friendly and professional and his two helpers were cheerful and eager to work. Craig was very flexible about changing the charges to a 3 man job and all went smoothly on the payment end. Craig even was able to accommodate our request to pack our temperpedic mattress level so that it would not be damaged in storage. I highly recommend them!

Sunny L

(5) 8/25/2015 West Hartford

The movers called the day before they came, and actually arrived early! They worked quickly and diligently, and had me doublecheck the arrangement of all the furniture they had moved into our basement (second kid to move away and leave all their stuff with us!) They tidied up, and were gone - great job! Would definitely call them again - but hope I don't have to!

Brett W

(4) 7/26/2015 Avon

They arrived on time. They worked hard. They did seem rushed, as they had many other jobs to do that day.

Paul B

(5) 7/6/2015 Southbridge

Craig and Pete were excellent from start to finish..they showed up right when promised and worked very hard ( on the hottest and most humid day of the summer ) to get our truck packed on our very tight schedule. They loaded our belongings so that when we unloaded there was absolutely no damage to any of it. We would absolutely use them again and recommend them to anyone who needs excellent and professional moving labor help.

Sherrie S

(5) 6/10/2015 Amston

Both of the men who came to help us load the REALLY heavy items were great. They were friendly, on time and worked very hard. They were very respectful of our belongs and seemed to take the extra steps to insure our items would arrive at our final destinations in the same condition they left our home. I would definitely recommend them and would use them again.

Michael R

(5) 6/3/2015 Manchester

These guys are amazing. Very friendly and very fast workers. Showed up actually early for the planned job, and were ready to go immediately. Thanks so much Craig & crew for the amazing job, very highly recommended.

I spoke with Craig of Cherrywood Movers 24 hrs prior to the unloading time; Craig confirmed that he and another worker would arrive by 9:00 am. At 9:00 3 family members and a friend began unloading the POD, using a dolly, truck, shopping cart, and little red wagon. Around 9:30 I received a message saying the Cherrywood folks would not arrive until 10:00 am because of a problem getting their equipment. They arrived c. 9:50 with one very old dolly. By then we had barely an hour left of labor. I was told by Craig that because of their 2-hour minimum, I could cancel the arrangement, but would still have to pay 1/2 of the $299. fee. Craig said he had been splitting wood late the night before [an explanation, but hardly an excuse for their lateness and poor equipment]. They did work for a little over an hour, mostly carrying things by hand, but it was a very disappointing experience. They were respectful of my property, but I would not use them again.

Mover's response:
The hand truck is made in the u.s.a. and made of steel over one hundred years old. That hand truck will out last me and any hand truck on the market. Sorry you did not like the look of it.i called you an hour before nine to say I was behind sorry you did not pick up. I am sorry you were upset. I hope you in joy your new home take care.

Movers were frriendly and hardworking. The African American gentleman, his name might have been Eric, was extremely conscientious, making sure we were aware of pre-existing damage in unit, etc. Not lightning fast, but steady and thoughtful service. Highly recommended.

Kai-Uwe W

(5) 5/17/2014 Amherst

(5) 11/12/2012 Danielson

We would definitely hire Cherry Wood Movers again. Craig and his helper were delightful. They know their business and were able to move, unpack and repack into our POD all of our various boxes, furniture and tools in record time. They work very hard and are careful and respectful of the pieces they are moving. Craig is an excellent "puzzle-worker," finding ways to pack all kinds of shapes and sizes into safe, secure moving condition. His helper has a good running patter to help the time pass in a relaxed manner.
