Prompt, professional and helped with all aspects of my move. From packing to carefully securing furniture and delicates in their vehicle, these guys were great and would definitely use them again.
When you decide to book them the contract has a clause that you must tip 20%. It's mandatory. We would have tipped anyway but I just didn't like that it was in the contract. Also if you pay by credit card it's an additional 5% fee. The team arrived 10-15 minutes early and got started right away. They start by having you sign a maximum amount that the price should not exceed. We moved from a tri level 2 bdrm 2.5 bath in SSF to 2 story home in San Jose. I am pregnant so I couldn't finish packing but they offered packing services also which we took advantage of. You just have to pay for the hourly rate, of course. They also provided wardrobe boxes, wrap your furniture for you, disassemble and reassemble your furniture, which was a huge plus. They were making good time until they thought they finished loading the truck. We still had a quarter of the kitchen we wanted them to pack and move for us. They ran out of boxes due to a miscommunication between myself and the owner. So we decided to pause for lunch and they went to get more boxes. We offered to go to Home Depot close by but I guess it's in their policy that they need to provide their own boxes (unless you had them already). They didn't charge us for the lunch time. The guys are a good team. I would definitely refer them but you just need to be clear in what you need/want from them. I could have been more prepared and clearly communicate with the owner. We didn't mind paying the additional time. As long as we did the move at one time, that was all we cared about and they were able to get the job done after some negotiation.
Working with Two Friends Movers was incredible! They showed up on time and immediately started getting to work packing everything efficiently and meticulously. We hadn't finished putting everything in boxes yet but they helped us pack and brought the right equipment and extra tape and boxes. They unpacked everything at our new place carefully without damaging a single item. Payment was super easy (they accept credit cards for an extra 4%). From start to finish, it only took 4 hours to move our entire apartment. And they did this in the rain! I highly recommend working with these guys!
These guys are super professional. I needed help packing up my belongings and disassembly of my bed. They did a fantastic job. Very efficient and well prepared.
Professional quality at rates you don't feel ripped off at. Did amazing job wrapping our stuff with supplies we bought and played tetris well when packing up our 16 foot truck to the brim. Would highly recommend!
I hired Albion Moving and Storage for my move on my first home. They came on time (early even!) and was very responsive with any questions or concerns I had. I was stressed with working and packing, but their 2 man crew moved everything I needed so quickly. I have extremely narrow stairs in my new home and they did not make a scratch on it. I'm very impressed with their efficiency and quality of work. Definitely would recommend to anyone and will reach out to them in any future moves!
We had a lot of stuff to move and we were like deer in the headlights. Scott came over to give us an estimate and also gave us a lot of tips and guidance on how to get going. A Pro Tip from Scott; plan early and call him early! We did a lot of packing ourselves, but Scott can also provide packers to make your job easier! (I wish I knew this earlier, it would have saved my back!) On the day of the move, Thomas and Shane showed up on time and began to move us. Those guys were the most professional and friendly people you would ever want to work with. They made the whole tedious task a lot easier for us to deal with. When they got to our storage place, they carefully arranged our stuff to maximize the space. Scott said he was trying to see if we could avoid getting another storage space (we had a LOT of stuff!) I enthusiastically recommend Scott and his moving/packing services. I look forward to using him and his crew to move from storage to our new home.
Harp and Sim did a fantastic job! They did the magic of packing up my furntiure (already de assembled) and carrying up my coach and heavy dresser over 30+ stairs-- without them wouldnt have been able to move into my new place! Thanks so so much for all your hard work!
We were moved by the smart move team over two days. Everything went super smoothly, no problems at all. Highly recommended ... It really couldn't have gone any more smoothly. Thanks again to the packing and moving teams!
Jeff and Jesus (Dan was not available) were simply fantastic. Very friendly and exactly what we needed. They showed up on time and unloaded our Relo packing cube, bringing everything into our new apartment. They were professional (came prepared with their own tools), and handled our items with great care. They even helped put together a few of our tables which was a big time and stress reliever. Would definitely work with them again!
Daniel and his colleague were excellent! They were super friendly, easy to work with, efficient, and took the time to put care into packing our items, especially the fragile ones! I highly recommend using them for your move!
Hired their unloading services twice in a week's span. OWe received on time, honest, excellent service. Will not hesitate to hire them again if a future need arises.
Michael was very prompt and thorough in describing his services and he kept his word. I needed help packing up my stuff for a move while I was unexpectedly out of town. He put my mind at ease by packing everything up in a very organized and helpful manner. He listened to what I asked for but also operated independently. This put my mind at ease and took a huge weight off my shoulders. Definitely recommend!
Sergey and Yana were fantastic even when their help did not show up, they came on their own that's commitment to business excellence I'll use them again for sure. They took great care in packing to make sure none of the items got a scratch.
Communication was very easy with LeClair Moving. They showed up a bit late, but the quality with which finished the move compensated for that completely. Very efficient and reliable. I will definitely use LeClair's services for my future moving needs and will recommend to my friends
The movers were very fast and professional. The only problem I had was that even though I had explicitly asked for packing services in my request and also messaged the owner about packing -- the guys that showed up seemed to have no idea that they would need to do any packing. Once that was cleared up with the owner, they did proceed to pack very efficiently and move quickly.
I would highly recommend!! From the initial review of my household items and quote, to the pickup and the delivery - everything went as planned. The crew packing my belongings were polite, friendly, VERY efficient and took great care with everything - and logged every item I had before it went on the truck. At the delivery point, 500 miles away, the crew of two were prompt, friendly and once again, VERY efficient. They were super hard working and accommodating. I have moved at least eight times over the course of the years and these guys were without a doubt the best. There's no need to look elsewhere if you are considering hiring professional movers!
Madison Kane really came through for me. I had a friend on Medi-Cal who needed to move to a memory care facility. We needed to close her apartment in two weeks. Madison arranged sales of furniture and what not that paid for half the cost of the move. She sensitively saved the items of most emotional significance to my friend – photos, letters, momentous. The items of minor value we were able to give to charity. Madison identified key items to save, if we need to sell in the future, for my friends care. She did a full appraisal of all items and managed the online postings, sales, packing, and hauling. She got us the best price for key items and conducted several sales in a very short time. All hauling was done by Hauling Mike who brought the remaining items to several local charities in two runs. I was quite impressed. They worked incredibly hard. I didn’t really believe we could do this in two weeks! She and Mike where delightful to work with. Their sensitivity to my client was touching.
Miguel and Jose oversaw the move including some packing of all my household items going into storage in order for my house to be remodeled. They were ahead of the clock all the way arriving and finishing. All the work staff were terrific and careful and great people to work with. They moved in high gear all day long...never seen that kind of dedication to getting the job done as quickly as possible. Well organized effort ...true professionals who know their business and were great to work with. Thank you!!!! Tom
They were very punctual and quick in packing up several large items (china hutch, curio cabinet, recliners, etc.) we had moved to Tracy. Had several items with glass and nothing was broken or compromised! I would definitely use them again! They also hauled off two items to the dumps. Very convenient, the two services they offer!
These movers from NorthStar Moving are phenomenal! I didn't have to do anything other watch these pros do their magic. They took great care with each piece of furniture, wrapping and protecting every item, disassembling and reassembling. They were simultaneously careful and efficient. Great professional service, great price, and great work. I highly recommend them, and it is a joy to watch these experts work.
