I think the guys who came are Lee and Robert. They were on-time, prepared, professional and extremely helpful and patient (with me not knowing where I wanted things to go). I would highly recommend this company and these two guys in particular, for sure!! Could not have gone smoother. Thank you!!

I come from a military family, so it was natural for me to choose Stars and Stripes, as picking a packing company is like finding a needle in a haystack. They did a great job for me, packing my PODS. Owner Jon Churchill was a professional, contacting me with any questions, responding to my every need. He rented me blankets, and buys them back instead of you having to buy them. Also didn’t require me to buy tv boxes, which one company was going to charge me $150 and $20 to put the tv in the box. I also misjudged how many PODS I would need, and Jon was ready and willing to send his truck the next day to load and store the rest of my goods. I was in a bind, under a time crunch, and he came through for me. No panic, no stress on my part. I would, without hesitation, recommend Stars and Stripes for your next packing need.

They were extremely polite, efficient, and careful; I could not have asked for better or more considerate movers. All of the communication was clear and quick. In the midst of a stressful move, I felt very well cared for.

Stars and Stripes is absolutely Number 1 in my eyes. John called me within minutes of me first trying to book with them to confirm they received my information. The crew was on time, even called ahead to give me a heads up they were about 10 minutes out. Charles and Demetrius were prepared for the job and had the right tools to complete the task and worked extremely hard even when the weather seemed unbearably hot. They treated my belongings with both care and respect and I would absolutely use them again. To be honest, I wouldn’t look anywhere else but to Stars and Stripes for my next moving experience. Thank you so much guys!

Mover's response:
Thanks for the kind words, Kevin. It was great meeting you and helping you move to FL. Thanks for supporting local vets!

I hired this company based upon reviews as well as the fact I want to support Veterans anyway I can. From the moment I hired them I wasn’t disappointed. I received a phone call from Jon the owner, to confirm my appointment, within a few minutes of scheduling the job. The day prior to my scheduled appointment I had to request a change of time and Jon was able to accommodate my request without hesitation. The day of the unloading service his team called me with an ETA which was within the hour window requested. Upon arrival they introduced themselves to my family with handshakes and smiles. They got right to work and even finished early! The whole time they were very professional, took great care of the items they were unloading, they were beyond friendly....honestly they felt like family. Not long after they left Jon called to assure everything went well and to thank me for giving his company this opportunity. 100% I would HIGHLY recommend this company to my friends, family and anyone looking for the services provided by Stars and Stripes.

Mover's response:
I was wonderful meeting and serving you, Laurie. Thanks again for supporting our veteran owned small business.

Awesome experience! Somehow they worked some magic and got my stuff to fit into 2 pods. They worked hard! They treated my belongings well, and did a great job. Highly recommend them.

John, the customer service person was very professional. However, we had a few issues with the movers. 1. They had originally committed to arrive between 8 & 9 a.m. The day before we were told 9-10 a.m. which put us off schedule. 2. The morning of the move they called to say that their vehicle broke down and could we go pick them up. We are new to FL and don't really know the area and they were on a remote road. 3. The guys had very bad body odor and it wasn't pleasant riding in the vehicle with them. 4. We had 1/2 of the job done before they got to the house. Only used them less than 2 of the 4 hours and then had to drive them back to their remote location. We didn't opt to have them assemble the furniture to use up the balance of the time because of their body odor that was permeating the house. Would not use them again.

Mover's response:
Hi Liz. Jon, the owner and logistics manager here. When I spoke with you the day before your move and requested an hours adjustment to the arrival time, I thought that was entirely acceptable for you and your moving schedule the next day. While the crew did have a mechanical breakdown in our company vehicle, they were less than 2 miles from your residence, on Honore Ave. While calling them an Uber was an option, I thought picking them up, if you were able to, would be a much faster way for them to arrive and start the loading process. Im very sorry for the lack of freshness on ONE of the crewmembers. While he was clean and had deodorant on, his work uniform was NOT able to be properly laundered the night before. The warm humid summer months here in Florida cause the crews to prespire heavily, as moving is a very labor intensive endeavor. We were happy to refund one of your unused labor hours for the inconvience. I do hope you would reconsider useing our services in the future, and giving us additional stars on your review, as we take our reputation, customer services, and professionalism very seriously. Thanks for supporting local vets. It remains our pleasure to serve.
