About Us

Stars and Stripes is a licensed and insured Marine Corps veteran owned and operated PROFESSIONAL loading, unloading and packing service serving the entire Tampa Bay and central FL and NW OH for over 10 years. We have loaded and unloaded 1000s of PODS, and moving trucks. We know how to make sure your items arrive in the same condition as they left your house. Dont gamble hiring unskilled 'dudes' because they are a few dollars less, as ALL our employees are BACKGROUND and DRUG TESTED. As vets, you know we are TRUSTWORTHY and HARDWORKING. We also have our own moving trucks, and make monthly trips to New England and back to FL moving high end antiques and household goods. We are the most professional, skilled and hardest working movers in Florida with crews ranging from 1 helper up to 10 for large commercial and industrial tasks. Handtrucks, 4 wheel dollies, furniture pads, shrink wrap, tape and boxes and other moving materials are always available to our customers. We have hundreds of very satisfied customers, and we hope to add you to this growing list. Thanks for supporting local vets. When it has to be done, and done RIGHT, send in the MARINES.

I’d recommend this company to anyone!! The guys that showed up worked their butts off for 6.5 hours! Amazing communication with the owner of Stars and Stripes, so helpful!! His crew he sent was professional, as was he!!! They didn’t stop the whole time!!! They showed up on time and didn’t hesitate to work the extra hours! They didn’t damage a thing and were so careful with all of the furniture!! Thank You Thank you Jon and your two elite crew members!! I can’t say enough about how much they saved us!!!

Both Charles Newman were hard working and professional. They handled my items with care. Most of my dealings were with Charles, and he was kind and couldn't do enough for me. I am totally satisfied.

The move started off a little rocky when an unavoidable incident kept the original crew from being able to arrive but after speaking with the owner we were able to get back on track and finish up the move efficiently. The two crew members he sent were extremely polite and pack the pod perfectly.

Mover's response:
Thanks for supporting local vets. It was our pleasure to serve you.

This is my second experience having Stars and Stripes assist me with my move. I can't say enough good things about them. The crew is militarily courteous and respectful. They treated my furniture and the hundreds of boxes with TLC. even while having to go up a flight of stairs in the blazing Florida heat and wearing masks. I'll be moving again in another two years and unless I decide to return to Costa Rica I'll definitely call John and his crew to help load and unload . They are the best. Semper Fi and Go Bucks,

Mover's response:
Thanks for the kind words, Margaret. It has been a pleasure working with and for you. Sepmer Fi and Go Bucks!

Our Stars and Stripes workers were on time and easy to work with. They worked extremely hard. The only thing that would make them better is having some experience in moving furniture, not just loading and unloading. I would recommend Stars and Stripes for your moving job.
