I needed to move a huge, heavy glass-top desk from my apartment in SOMA to my office a few blocks away-- on foot. JP was great from the start. He arrived with a plan and got the job done in under 20 minutes! Every piece was handled with care, and the cost was much lower than quotes I got from big moving companies. I'd definitely book again.
I’ve worked with a few moving companies and this was by far my best experience moving. The movers treated all my belongings with care (not a single thing was damaged) and moved them from a third floor apartment to another third floor apartment quickly and efficiently. They were professional and communicative all along the way. I highly recommend Larro’s Moving Service!
On time, professional, and conscientious - everything I'd want in a moving company.
Great moving company. The movers have been really friendly and professional. They arrived on time, have been super quick and careful. All at a very fair price point. I had bad experience with other moving companies before, but I can only recommend and would always book again with MEAA. Thank you :)
Great guy! I was really impressed with his professionalism. He suggested the perfect solution even though it was a different moving company for specialized service! A++ would definitely work with him in the future when I have the right job!
=== SUMMARY === I am a software engineer in Silicon Valley living in a one-bedroom apartment. The idea of moving all my packed boxes and large pieces of furniture, like my sofa, entertainment center, and bookcases, was extremely daunting. Do I hire friends to help me move? Do I hire expensive professional movers? Do I do it myself and get one of those PODS? "Ain't nobody got time fo' dat!" Steve and Joe from Albion Moving and Storage were able to move all my items into their truck and to their final destinations safely and quickly. Their truck was extremely large, so even the largest pieces had room to be properly lifted in and carried out. What made me pick Albion Moving and Storage over other competitors at first was their cheaper hourly rate and their 2-hour minimum. Whereas most other moving companies require a 3-hour minimum, these guys only required 2 hours. In my head, I felt the job would only take 2-or-so hours, so this made the most sense. Steve and Joe worked extremely quickly and efficiently, and the job legitimately took 3 hours. And that is great. It would have taken my friends and I all day (possibly two) to do everything these guys did in 3 hours. Steve and Joe are extremely nice and awesome. They made sure they knew where each item was going (new apartment or storage) and got everything to its final destination quickly and with great care. I am for sure going to be calling these guys again next time I need to move. This was my first moving experience living on my own, so I was extremely nervous. These guys put me at ease and have gained my trust. Thanks Steve and Joe! === DETAILS === They disassembled my dining table quickly and efficiently to have it all fit in my storage unit I was moving things to. They also let me purchase a sofa cover for $5 (very cheap compared to what the storage facility I was using charges for them). I actually had two places I needed my stuff moved to: A storage unit and my new apartment. This was no problem for them. They put everything into their large truck, went to the storage unit, put in everything that went there, and then drove to my new apartment, where they moved in all the remaining items. I was afraid this "moving items to two places" thing was going to be a problem, but it was not at all. They disassembled and reassembled my bed for me, which was very nice. They brought their own doorstops, and had all the equipment they needed to move even my heaviest piece of furniture (my entertainment center). They also have their own insurance, which is a very important detail when hiring movers. The whole process with them took 3 hours. I already had all of my stuff in boxes and all the furniture empty and ready to be moved. All they had to do was move things from my apartment to the truck, and then from the truck to the new locations. They were very efficient at putting the furniture into my storage unit. Had I been charged with storing the items inside, I would have done it in such a way where it wouldn't have fit. These guys assured me they could fit everything, and were able to make everything fit perfectly on their first attempt. (No rearranging was needed, they had already planned out what would go where as soon as they saw the storage unit and the space they had to work with.) Definitely will hire again!
Bottom line they were excellent.They showed up on time.They were very professional. They were the only moving company that called us back the very same day I posted. I gave them an inventory of everything we had to get moved and they gave an estimated price. They packed the stuff very nicely,nothing was damaged.They did it in a timely manner. They arrived with our stuff on time and started to unpack and put everything where it needed to be,and even reassembled the furniture. Overall very impressed and recommended to everyone. Thank you
Harp and his team did awesome moving and moving out cleaning for me. They fill holes and patch dry wall. Mount my tv and install faucet at my new place. Easy to work and communicate with them. Defining hire them again
This is the best moving company in the Bay area. They are AWESOME! Really cannot say enough about the service, expertise, and care. Having moved three years in a row now, my husband and I consider ourselves to be experienced movers. This is our second time using Smart Move, and we will not use anyone else. Compared to other moving companies here are some notable differences that you can expect when you hire Smart Move: -Wardrobe Boxes (SO key for easily moving your closet! They bring the wardrobe boxes on the day of your move and load your hangers onto the rod. Simple, easy, and not something all moving companies provide. -Speed (These guys are SO efficient!) -Shrink Wrap (Free, they wrapped all my furniture in it and blankets) -Cleanliness and Care (Really cannot say enough about the care that the crew takes in all of your belongings. I've never felt like I need to say a word about fragile items or boxes, because the team takes such pride!) -Friendliness (Need I say more? The teams have always been so friendly and earnestly desire to get everything situated EXACTLY where you want it!) I highly recommend Smart Move ! You won't be disappointed!
Best experience I've had to date with any moving company! Very personable and efficient. Best value in the area IMHO.
Scott is great, he was on time and very professional. He even assisted moving the desk to its permanent location. I highly recommend Scott, and I will definitely use him in the future.
An amazing experience. Never thought moving could be so easy. They took the job last minute, the day before, when my scheduled moving company cancelled. Very polite, very professional, very respectful. Highly recommend them. I will absolutely use them for future moves. Very satisfied
These guys were truly great. Michael was extremely quick with communication and very nice. They were available when we needed them, showed up on time and got right to work, handled everything professionally and with care. DMC Hauling provided a great service making our move in day nice and smooth, couldn’t have asked for a better moving company!!!
Very personable, intelligent and careful movers. Arrived on time and quickly completed job moving large, heavy items down two flights of stairs to basement. Would definitely hire again and highly recommend them.
1. The rate is great. They charge a fair amount and they currently offer deals. 2. As a start up bussiness, they really work hard to earn their reputation. We were given a quote of about 3h working time and they finished the job under 3h30. During this time, they worked non stop, even skipped lunch. 3. They are professional. Some moving companies wouldn't bother wrap up all furnitures, but they took the time to take care of our belongings. I should also mention that they work incredible quiet. I'm sure our neighbors will appreciate it. When they enter the new apartment of ours, they even got a protective carpet ready for high traffic areas. After the work, they took out every piece of trash for us, leaving us a perfectly clean living space. 4. Extras. One thing I'm absolutely thankful for is the wardrobe boxes they provided. My husband and I ended up using four of them. May I add that the ideas of matching outfits assured in a very subtle way for us to be able to recognize our movers with ease. BTW guys, you both looked good in red. -------- My husband and I started moving smaller object and boxes by ourselves before professional movers came in. If you do have a lot of things like us, it may financially be more friendly to you. But other than that, I'm confident in concluding that this moving company definitely took the pressure off of our mind. Their work is nothing short than perfection.
Leclair Moving is the best!!! Used them for a Craig's list buy (big sectional couch) . They got back to me quickly with the best quote to pick up the couch at the sellers, move it to my house (about 15 miles away) and take the old couch away . The best thinks was that they charged a flat fee for the move. Other moving companies had a per hour charge with minimum number of hours (3 hrs). Giving other movers no incentive to finish the job quickly. Leclair was quick, on time , and easy to work with. Thanks for a great experience Leclair. I would use you again.
I am so happy that I saw the Thumbtack billboard next to the freeway. Golden Eagle Moving Company were so good. They were early, packed everything professionally. Everyone from Annie, who set the appointment, to the movers were more than accommodating. Everyone was very nice. And it all worked out as I was promised. If I ever have to move again I will call them first and recommend them to friends.
MoveOn is an extremely professional moving company. Richard was very hands on, reassuring me along the way. The guys are hard workers and stay on task working as a team. They are exceptionally hard working keeping a fast pace loading & unloading. I highly recommend the MoveOn Team
Marquis was able to move a large size couch via a narrow and difficult entrance with ease and delivered it in perfect condition. I would absolutely hire Marquis and his colleague again and highly recommend them!
Andrew and his team did a great job for me - disassembling, moving and reassembling furniture from one room to another. They were prompt and efficient and an excellent value. I highly recommend him!
Nicolas was easy to work with, was not only on time, and was friendly. He and his other mover did a great job picking up furniture for me in another city, then brought it to me. They also helped me move furniture around after just moving in a week ago. I would definitely use them again.
