Stay Away!!! They do not deliver on their promises. I requested 4 movers for 5 hours. I got 3 movers for 3 of those hours. I was promised reimbursement for the missed hours. I am writing this review 3 weeks and multiple calls after the service was completed. To date, I have received nothing as I was promised. We had 3 beds that we needed help setting up and still today one bed is not set up at the new house and our main bed that has multiple drawers, does not have a single correctly functioning drawer. I was promised the issues would be looked into, and a check would be sent. It's nearly a month after service and nothing has been done. Not a good experience and wouldn't recommend to anyone.

Mover's response:
Dave, I sent your refund back to you as we had discussed. I also made sure we did our best to get the 4th guy out to you as fast as we could once we were made aware they were late. He got there an hour and a half late and you were not charged for the time he missed or the extra time the whole crew stayed over. I am very sorry for the inconvenience that this caused you during your move and it is not typical of what our company stands for. I do hope you enjoy your new home.

DO NOT TRUST THIS COMPANY!!!!!! I used this company for a move the crew did a "ok" job, did some damage to furniture and walls although minor, the real problem is the owner who is not honest!!!!

Helpful movers really did the trick for us. I thought it'd take 2.5 hours to unload my 8' X 16' PODS unit and load it into my public Storage unit. instead, they were done in an hour! And they packed the storage unit great. They were courteous and in time. I'd certainly use them again. You couldn't go wrong!

Mover's response:
Thank you William for writing out this review displaying what type of services we provide to our customers. We are glad you were pleased with the service that we provided you.

The movers arrived 15 minutes early and was very professional through out the move. It was a trying day for me with a family emergency and they took control of the move/packing so I would not have any worries and I thank them most of all for that. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND them for your next move, 5 stars. Highly satisfied customer. P.S. - They finished on the contracted amount of time.

Mover's response:
CT, as with anything we know moving can be a hectic time and I'm glad you were able to handle your family affairs and that we were able to get everything done for you and everything worked out for the best.

Couldn't be happier - They were a bit early, and worked very quickly yet carefully at the same time. Made ALL the difference in the move, and probably some of the best moving related money I spent.

Get To Know Us

What can a customer expect after booking with you?

We will give you a call as soon as possible to get all of the details for your move confirmed and also go through your move with you to discuss any additional information that may happen for your move. Also we will be able to answer any questions you may have regarding your move.

What can a customer expect on moving day if they hire you?

Once we arrive onsite we will do a brief walk through and then we will get started by prepping any furniture for loading and proceed to loading your Pod or truck.

How should a customer prepare for moving day?

The best way to prepare for your move is always organization, having walkways cleared for the movers so as not to trip over anything. If we are unloading a great time saver is to take post it notes label each room #1,#2 etc then as we are bring boxes in you can say that goes to room # this makes it much easier for you and saves you time and money!
