    Joe was very professional and clearly takes pride in his work. He showed up promptly at the agreed time and immediately went to work. He carefully measured all of my furniture and put it in the truck like it was a puzzle. Nothing was broken or damaged and he even helped us get rid of some wood that we didn't have a place to dispose. Joe is a more traditional mover--he relies on moving techniques (using straps to carry heavy items) that he learned from the family business instead of brute strength. This means that he may not work as quickly as some other companies that hire young guys, but in return you get the peace of mind that he is taking care of your furniture and the place that you are moving out of (or I presume into).

    Quality work at an affordable price
    I was ready earlier than expected, and we're able to start earlier. They were able to put everything in the moving truck I rented much easier than the company I used when we first moved in. The price point is outstanding compared to other guys rates and all of our things were secure and protected from scratching, shifting, or breaking. Over all I am very pleased with their service.
    Joe W. Nov 27, 2016

    Thank you so much Joseph. I hope you and your wife enjoy your new place and if you are ever back this way and need help please let me know.

    Both guys worked very hard the entire time they were there. They were efficient, punctual, and polite. The job did take longer than I expected, but that is likely due to inexperience on my part. I would definitely recommend them to others.

    Thank you Kristyn, I am sorry that we took longer than you thought it should take. I am meticulous about placing everything in the right spot so that nothing gets damaged during transport. Your kind words are appreciated.

    Joe and his two helpers were the best we have ever encountered. We have moved across the country many times and we would have to rate "Move It For You" as one of the best experiences. Professional,caring about your items, efficient and going the extra mile are just a few of the things that made this a "5 STAR" job. Wish there were more companies like this.

    Joe and Barb are amazing people. They were so quick and informative during our whole move and did everything to help accommodate us. They were careful and went above and beyond to move us at a last minute notice. Not only are they superb movers, they are such amazing, caring, and loving people. They could tell from speaking with me over the phone, that I was stressed out. They sent me a message wishing me well and letting me know that everything will work itself out. They are such awesome people. I definitely will use Move It For You LLC again on my next move and I highly recommend them!

Q&A

What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Our prices for the services we offer are by the hour. We also, do not have a minimum hour charge. If the job requires us to travel out of our normal service area we have a small travel fee also.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
We find out exactly what they are looking for. Do they need a full service move where everything is provided or do they only need help in some areas. For instance they will pack and unpack themselves but need help to load and unload the truck. We have found that most people that move end up paying for services that they really do not need as well as extra charges for things like stairs and distance to carry their stuff. We try and alleviate all the unnecessary charges and provide only the professional service that they need.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I learned how carry big objects and to load trucks so that nothing can shift during transport from my grandfather. I also started this company in Pennsylvania, where the doors, hallways and stairs are built more narrow than they are in Texas. This means that I have 3 yrs. experience moving large pieces of furniture up and down narrow stairways, through tiny doors and hallways and even move them while snow is everywhere. I have a no damage philosophy that means I truly care about your belongings and will take extra care not to mark up your walls or furniture.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I actually started this company with one dolly and myself. I put a few ads online and started helping people move. It started as a way to give people a very affordable, extremely professional and stress free move. We love helping people and this was born out of that. Over a period of a couple of months, word of mouth referrals had me so busy that I had to bring in extra help. I incorporated this little company and started training young men how do carry furniture and boxes, how to load trucks and how to give outstanding customer service.
What types of customers have you worked with?
All kinds of customers. Young, old, rich, poor and every area in between. We moved the Harrisburg School Districts Administrative offices. This took 2 weeks and was about 400 separate offices and conference rooms spread out over 3 floors with only one elevator. We also moved a young couple from Gettysburg, Pa. into the largest home in Maryland and the 49th largest home in America. (49,800 sq. ft.) We have also moved pastors and missionaries, some of them for free and even a few older people into retirement communities, again some of them for free.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Read the reviews, but also call them and talk to them. This lets you know what kind of character the people have. So many times I have been hired to just unload a truck that another company has loaded and when I open the door it is obvious that they did not know how to load a truck properly. Things are falling over, broken and have the appearance of being just thrown in. Ask them if they actually strap everything in when loading, the order of loading items, and how long it will take. Then when you are listening you will know if they know what they are talking about. Also ask about extra charges such as stairs and distance to carry. If the company charges you extra for these things, they are actually charging you twice for the same thing. If they charge by the hour it will take longer and get the extra charge, if it is a flat rate bid then they figure the extra time plus charge you the extra charge. Just use common sense.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Know what kind of service you need. Do you need cleaning before or after the move? Are you going to pack and unpack the boxes, Do you have any over sized pieces to be moved and do they charge extra for them. What is their damage policy. Just because they have insurance is not good enough. The insurance will only cover 60 cents/pound. Who pays for the remaining 75% of the item that was broken. The way that I make decisions like this is to pray. The Lord will provide you with the right company to help you.
