    Excellent and careful moving experience
    Action movers did a great job helping me with my unique move. They came before the actual date to look at the job- then moved and packed all our stuff very carefully and safely. I will call them again.

    Christina and her team did an excellent job! I had a difficult move with 2 stops in the South Bay before heading up to SF which required going through 2 buildings and an elevator. They stayed in great spirits the whole time, were fair in what they charged, and went above and beyond in their customer service. Would definitely use them again!

    We had to reschedule due to a mistake on the part of our shippers. Action Movers has thus far been VERY responsive and we will be in touch with them as soon as we have confirmation that we need their assistance.

    I hired Action Movers to help me move my mom's things from her apartment into an assisted living facility. Every adult child who has gone through this experiences knows the emotional challenge of making such a move. It is a vulnerable experience for the entire family. When I was researching movers, I was afraid I was going to have to deal with gruff, impersonal moving guys who maybe weren't so nice. What surprised me about the process of working with Christina was how compassionate, empathetic and kind she was. She sees moving as a wholistic experience and was really there to listen and to lend help in any way she could, just to simplify and help make things easier for us. When I brought my mom to her new apartment, her face lit up seeing how beautiful her bedroom set looked in the new space. Action Movers helped our family make a delicate and important transition a very smooth and positive experience. They were literally there to take the heavy burden off our shoulders. Thank you!

    Action Movers showed up 15 min early to park and form a plan for moving us. They were all very sweet and professional, taking great care to wrap our belongings for the move. The house we were moving into had new floors and they placed everything on the plastic cover we had put down so the floors wouldn't get scratched. We would absolutely recommend them to friends and use them again!

    I had a great experience with Action Movers. Not only did they show up early they had me moved to my new apt within the hour. Since there was a 3hr minimum they offered to stay and help me move and furniture boxes to places where it would be easier to unpack. Overall great experience and I'd recommend them for any one moving.

    Let me just say that this company is A+. I called them last-minute on a Friday and they were able to come to my new apartment in San Jose the next morning to unload my Uhaul after driving all the way from Houston, Texas. These people were very careful with all of personal possessions. Christina helped me figure out where to place everything in a cramped 600 sq foot studio. The three-person team had everything done well before the estimated time. Very professional people - and oh yes, they are dog lovers! I will use them the next time I have to move.

We often help seniors prepare to transition to assisted living facilities. This involves meeting with their families to discuss a schedule and the logistics. What we find most rewarding is developing a relationship with our clients and knowing that they trust us to be apart of their lives.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Be cautious when movers offer you a quote without actually seeing the job. You may incur unexpected charges at the end of the job which can throw you off budget.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
A customer should have the following information: 1) Schedule time for a site survey. This only take 30 mins and is well worth your time. 2) Be very clear with what items are moving. 3) Be very clear if Debris Removal / Dumpster Services are needed. It's better to through it away, opposed to moving unwanted items to your new home. 4) Please tell your moving company if you live in an apartment, if there are stairs, how many flights, is there an elevator and parking access.
