I hired two movers for two hours - they were quick, efficient, friendly, and carful with my belongings. However, they arrived 30 minutes late and insisted they had to leave after only an hour even though I had paid for two hours and was hoping for their help assembling some furniture. I was unable to get a refund for the extra h…Read Moreour I paid for. After they finished unloading, one of the movers asked me out for drinks, which was a little uncomfortable since this person now knows where I live...Show Response
My apologies for the tardiness of my guys. Now I sent them back to put your things together 30 minutes later and you had already done it. Then you say he one of my guys asked you out for drinks, ok, you didn’t say NO! You exchanged numbers and y’all been communicating/texting every since. There’s no refund on a 2 hour minimum no matter if it takes 30 minutes or the 2 hours. My apologies again if you missed that when placing your order. Thanks for using O’Shae and Sons!

Everett, the owner of this business personally returned my call within just a few hours of booking his company's service. And, he was graciously flexible yesterday to meet since I had experienced travel delays and had to reschedule (well in advance) the moving truck unload time. They came promptly at the rescheduled time. Evere…Read Morett also personally supervised his hired helper (Jesse) and actively assisted us in the process. Both of them were very courteous and it was immediately apparent that were mindful of handling all of my fragile items and making sure everything that they unloaded and placed were I wanted them to be. I definitely recommend this company and will use them again if needed!
They were very pleasant. On time, however they didn't have straps for lifting the large heavy items. I had a got a few scrapes on my China cabinet as a result of it slipping and hitting the steps. Other than that they were very professional I would recommend them.
The initial helper that was assigned to my request never showed up, which is the reason for 4/5 stars. However, upon calling the company they expedited my request for a new helper, who arrived in less than an hour. He was helpful and courteous and did an excellent job.
real nice guys and not the easiest of move-ins. There was a communication breakdown with tools and dollies that slowed the start but was remedied quickly. They stayed well past the scheduled time and the overtime was reasonable. I would hire them again but be clearer of what they need to bring to get the job done
Would definitely use again! From the time I booked the job until the end they were great! They communicated with me after I booked the job by calling to confirm, then again the day before and then the morning of to say that they were arriving. Whenthey arrived they were polite and professional. They finished the job in less then…Read More two hours with no problems at all. Appreciated all there help!
O'Shae & Sons Movers were prompt, efficient, and incredibly helpful. They were on time, emptied out my storage unit and made sure everything was loaded into the truck carefully. They moved everything where I had instructed and were the model of professionalism. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who is looking for mover…Read Mores in the future.
On time, hard working, positive people! When another moving company (*cough* Mics Movers *cough*) failed to show up, these guys were able to take the job at the absolute last minute and get my entire studio apartment loaded into a 10 ft truck and moved two miles down the road in less than three hours.
The movers came on time, was very professional, hard workers, didn't mark anything on the walls and finished early. I would recommend them to anyone that needs movers. We have another load of stuff coming in and I will definitely be giving them a call. A+++
They were over 20 minutes late and I had to call a couple of times to see if they were coming. They unloaded quickly and efficiently. The only thing I would have to say is, they could've set stuff in the room I needed because the unloading took less than 30 minutes while I paid for two hours.
I needed help with a move on very short notice (less than 24 hours) and O'Shae & Sons really came through for me. Everett was very easy to work with over the phone and ended up sending two movers instead of just the one I had requested (at no extra cost to me). Ralph and Deion did a great job and were very efficient and profes…Read Moresional. I would definitely recommend hiring O'Shae & Sons.
The helper should never be used to pack. They did not seal the bottom of the boxes with tape but only folded them closed. Who does that? They also knocked one of the plates off the wall and did not put it back (simple screw would have secured it). In addition, they packed clothes from hangers but left the hangers laying all ov…Read Moreer the floor. Sloppy movers overall.
They were on time but did not come with padding or a dolly. Fortunately, I had a dolly they could use. I had some furniture pieces that were quite heavy and they moved them without a dolly - across the street and down a long hallway. My love seat ended up with a scratch on the back and 2 other smaller pieces are damaged. The 2 g…Read Moreuys were polite and wanted to get the job done but neither mentioned the damages and I did not see them until I started moving furniture to the right rooms. Had they at least mentioned the damages, my review would have been 3 stars. The job got done though on a Sunday!Show Response
If you would have read your order correctly, you would have seen that you are responsible for supplying padding for your things. We also had our own equipment. There's no reason to pull those things out when we are walking down and across the street. Then down a long hallway.... (all of my vehicles have dollys and furniture dollies) Thanks for using us!

I can't say enough wonderful things about these guys! They are hard working and competent. They made our moving day easy, friendly, professional, and fast. They seem to love what they do and enjoy working together as a team. It's also truly a Family Business - they care about their company and work to make it the best it can …Read Morebe! They had great communication before and after and were totally satisfactory in every way!
Compared to other movers I've hired in the past, these movers were not very efficient and spent quite a bit of time talking to each other and taking breaks. For me, this probably was not worth the price. I ended up having to move quite a bit while they organized my moving unit and chatted.
It was a pleasure working with Everett, Deion and Stephon! They arrived early, provided tips on how I could help them streamline the move and were focused on securing all fragile items. I would highly recommend O'Shae & Sons Movers to anyone looking to move.
They arrived hours late, were not careful in how they handled my furniture and caused damage on pieces that cannot be replaced, despite my repeatedly requests that they be careful. I am devastated. And on top of it, they were rude. I wish I could go back and time and chose someone else.
First asked if he could arrive early, and then arrived 30 minutes late. The person I was working with ended up having someone else do the job at the last minute and consequently did not bring the hand truck I had requested with the order. The movers slammed into light fixture in the hallway of the building which I will have to p…Read Moreay for and they did a poor job putting together a couple of simple chairs.
I paid for two movers for two hours. They sent four for no extra charge and completely unpacked me in one hour. They were about half an hour late from my reservation time, but kept me constantly informed about where they were. They worked hard and I would definitely use them again.
I used O’Shae & Sons for a household move; specifically to load a 53’ trailer. The company was able to work with me on short notice during prime moving season, and were flexible as we had multiple changes to our moving schedule. The team was on time and courteous. They were prepared and worked very hard right out the gate wit…Read Moreh high energy. Unfortunately, the truck that was contracted separately was not on time. The team used the time well to stage the boxes and furniture to facilitate a quick load when the truck did arrive. I was not pleased with the way the truck was loaded. I had numerous moving blankets which went unused. Instead, they put furniture in the trailer braced with boxes. Several pieces of furniture were left completely uncovered and had rub damage. I’d use this company again, but I will be more directive in how I want the truck loaded in the future.
The crew was awesome very sweet and very respectful. Only issue I had with them is they damaged a few pieces of furniture. The one that they really damaged was my dresser took a whole piece off and that is not fixable. But other then that they were fast and like I mentioned very nice guys.
Everett, John and Deion did a great job. They arrived right on time and got right to work. They were careful and thoughtful about how they handled our things and did an excellent job loading our truck. When I arrived at our destination, not one thing had moved! They did a great job and I would highly recommend using them aga…Read Morein. They were very pleasant and very nice to work with. Thank you!
Not a professional moving service. What service they provided was dramatically marred by the negatives. They were not prepared with equipment and generally unable to perform the work with professionalism. Broke and damaged property. Were generally slow in their work and their attitude was surly. Overall, they were very disrespe…Read Morectful. Will not use again and will not recommend under any circumstances.
The men arrived on time and went to work. I was pleased they were able to load the truck quickly. It was obvious they were used to moving people, and they did an excellent job. As my daughter said, it would have taken us all day to do what they did. And yes, I would use them again. Susan McMarlin
We were so glad that we hired helpers through "HireAHelper" and especially that us used O'Shae & Sons Movers. They contacted us as soon as we entered the order; called us the night before; called us when they were 10 minutes away the day of needed services. John, Reggie and Dion were so friendly and courteous, listened to our r…Read Moreequest and finished the job well ahead of scheduled. We couldn't have asked for more. My husband and I highly recommend them without question. Thank you, Jane and Arnold Tobler
I am extremely happy about our experience with O'Shea & Sons. Had never used Hireahelper before and didn't know what to expect. The owner arrived with his two sons 10 minutes early, and called first to make sure we were ready. The kids, apparently both in college, were extremely fast, careful and professional, and the owner, Eve…Read Morerett, made sure everything went perfectly. I really have never had a moving experience go this well, and would recommend them to everyone.
These guys were great! I called and they were available within 48 hours to help load a POD. Thank you for helping make things go smoothly! They came on time and finished early. They were careful to not damage the floors or corners as they moved things out of the house. A special thank you to the loader Regi who was truly taking …Read Morehis time to make things fit correctly so things don't move or get damaged. I will definitely be using your company again in our final move to the new house!
Everet was great. He responded to my same day request within 2 hours. He was very patient and flexible as we did not know exactly when our truck would arrive from Florida. The two guys he sent for the job were friendly and professional. They handled the items with care. I would use them again and highly recommend them. As a mili…Read Moretary Colonel I have high standards and these guys were topnotch!
O'Shae & Sons showed up on time, with a couple of more guys than I'd requested as a previous job was cancelled. They got the unloading work done very quickly, which was great. I didn't have any big furniture pieces, 90% boxes and a few smaller pieces of furniture. My only minor nitpick was that a few boxes that should have be…Read Moreen in the bedroom wound up in the kitchen. Workers were friendly with a good attitude.
I would give O'Shae & Sons Movers solid marks. The logistics of my move-in were challenging due to the restrictions of my apartment building, which we only found out the day of the move. I think most other movers might have given up frankly, but Everett and his team were determined to come up with creative solutions to get the…Read More job done AND in the allotted timeframe. They were generally careful with our belongings (quality of the movers varied a bit from person to person), but in the end the job got done and we were happy. Would recommend them.
The O'Shae and Sons crew who helped us move last week were amazing. They were on time, handled all of our things carefully and were very respectful to me. More than all of those things though is that they were willing to do whatever we needed to get the job done. They went the extra mile to make this as easy as possible for us…Read More and I will definitely hire them again in the future for my next move.
They have got to be the fastest movers I've ever seen, they showed up early, and they were really sweet and helpful. They moved a couple of really huge things for me, and they loaded that truck faster than I could even believe. And I have seen TONS of movers. If I were staying in the area, I would call them every time I needed…Read More a mover. Highest recommendation!
One of their helpers was pretty good, but the others packed our boxes so poorly that the boxes collapsed when stacked, or the lids popped open due to poor taping. We also had several instances where we specifically asked one of them to pack an item, only to find that they had simply moved it to another room, and sat it unpacked…Read More on the floor. Most of them appeared to have little or no skill in packing techniques. We had to re-pack three or four of their boxes.
Excellent service. The gentleman that appears to be the owner is very experienced. We drove across country after they packed the truck. Even with the windy roads in Sedona. Once we got to our destination everything was still perfectly in place.
Our movers were great. They arrived on time and went right to work. They were very careful with the things they were moving as well as the apartment that the things were being moved into. They finished in an hour and then helped put things together. I would certainly use them again.
They were on time, efficient and friendly! A couple of the movers even got stuck in a freight elevator and still got the job done on time. They did an excellent job and made moving much less stressful. No complaints! I will definitely recommend them and use them again for my next move.
They were on time and worked very hard. We hired them to load a large POD and they worked the entire time. They were very polite and took extra care in protecting the furniture we identified as precious/delicate. We would definitely use them again.
Everett and the whole crew were fantastic! They showed up promptly and had everything loaded in just under an hour, which included lifting two sofas up to the ground level over bushes. Extremely friendly, no request was too big and moved everything efficiently and carefully. Very fair price and saved us lots of work. Would defin…Read Moreitely use them again!
Everett reached out to let me know the original crew had car troubles and he was coming in person to get my job completed. That delay meant the packing job started about an hour later than scheduled. However his team worked diligently and packed my truck carefully ensuring none of my fragile glassware, mirrors, or TV were dama…Read Moreged during the process or in transit. And they packed it superbly. Most of my furniture is non-square so it doesn't stack or sit in corners well, and Everett ensured everything fit and was tied securely. So thankful to have skilled packers on the job!
They did an amazing job!!! They were on time and ready to work.Taking the extra effort to ensure that my move went as smooth as it possibly could, considering the bad weather. I would definitely recommend them. Thanks again O'Shae & Sons!
They were incredibly flexible with their time, I ended up getting stuck in traffic and they were willing to wait to start the job. Once I arrived they were incredibly efficient and careful in the moving of my objects. I would recommend them.
O'Shae & Sons is run by Everrett who I interacted with on the phone to get our schedules straight. He was very professional and accommodating. On the move day they were on time and brought 4 guys instead of the 2 I had scheduled. Our furniture was moved from the truck into the apartment in about 20 minutes. Everyone was reall…Read Morey nice and everything got moved in without any damage. I would hire them again in an instant.
These gentleman were awesome! They moved two huge and heavy bedroom sets up narrow stairs and even put things in our attic, which is a pull down. Everett who is owner was wonderful to coordinate and work with. They were on time, efficient and very polite. This was a tough move and they did a great job. Highly recommend.
I moved cross country (LA to DC). Everett and his guys were fantastic! They were courteous, timely and very helpful. They were so quick yet careful with my things. Everett went above and beyond by hauling away some junk for me. I definitely plan on calling on them for help in the future and recommending them to friends.
Very professional and I would highly receommend O'Shae & Sons. I relocated from MD to GA. O'Shae and Sons made my moving experience very pleasant and less stressful. They took pride in their work, was very organized and completed the job in a timely manner. Thank you "B"! I couldn't have done it without you and your team!
They were overall good. Arrived a few minutes late, but they were very respectful of my things, packaged them in the uhaul nicely and efficiently, and were super nice and friendly. It went slower than I'd like, but this was my first time moving this much stuff, so I don't know. They also had just gotten off a previous job so the…Read Morey may have been tired. I would use again. Very reasonably priced. I also realized that this site takes a large portion of my money so next time I would go through them directly.
Mr. O'Shae was communicative on the phone, but showed up over half an hour late. He disappeared for another half hour he later told me to use the bathroom. His sons were friendly but did not know how to do the work and seemed not at all interested in working. They spent most of the day chatting with each other. I often looked up…Read More from my work, (I was forced to do a great deal of the unloading and bringing the boxes and furniture off the truck and into my apartment myself) only to see them strolling up the sidewalk empty handed. They were unprofessional in their behavior and their dress. Both of the sons wore their pants in the current style slung below their backsides. All in all, I would say that if you hire anyone else you would be better served.Show Response
David, first of all you only paid for 2 helpers, so whatever i did doesn't matter. I was 10 minutes late looking for parking, plus they stayed 30 minutes over with no charge. You talked to my workers like they where dumb and because of your negative attitude NO they did not want to work for you. They did the job for me out of respect.. Next, you took it upon yourself to help no one asked or forced you to lift anything. Lastly, I still thank you for using oshae and sons movers...

Oshae and sons are highly recommended. They were very professional, pleasant and great movers. They made our move smooth and easy. They showed up on time and worked with us to complete everything necessary for our move. We thank them and will definitely be using them again.
Everett, and his crew from O'Shae & Sons Movers were fantastic! They showed up 15 minutes early, and managed to do a superb job even with everything working against us. For starters, the parking spots for moving trucks when tenants are moving in/out of my building, were completely blocked by another truck the building was us…Read Moreing for a maintenance issue, which had broken down. Therefore, Everett and his team had to carry my boxes and furniture quite a ways to my moving truck, yet they still managed to make great time and didn't complain about that issue once. Also, it rained the entire time they were moving, and they payed extra attention to make sure none of my stuff got wet. I payed for 2 hours, they managed to get the entire job done in 1.5, giving me an extra half hour on my already crammed schedule. Lastly, I unfortunately waiting until the last minute to make arrangements with a moving company. I called HireAHelper, and O'Shaes were willing to come out the next day, with a very good price. I can't recommend them enough. Thanks to Everett, his crew, O'Shae's and Hire A Helper for making my move a stress free, and productive experience.
I had a wonderful experience with O'Shae and Sons! They arrived ahead of time and were prepared. They were friendly, respectful and professional.

Everett O'Shae and his two sons arrived promptly and finished the job quickly. Everett was also good about communicating with me before their scheduled arrival time. They were very helpful, pointing out one piece that had leg damage and shouldn't be moved. They work hard, and I would definitely use them again.
