I had a great experience moving with Spartan. I called a few weeks ahead of my moving date and was able to schedule the move without any issues. They immediately sent a confirmation email with all the details and tips on how to pack and prepare. I also got a discount by scheduling my move on a weekday. On moving day they called in the morning and let me know they'd be arriving around 9:30am. They showed up on time and immediately got to work. The foreman took charge of disassembling the furniture and wrapping all the tv's and furniture, while the other two guys hauled everything into the truck. They even brought wardrobe boxes for our closets, and packed up a couple boxes of loose items that we hadn't managed to pack. It took them about 4.5 hours to load up our large 2 bedroom + storage unit and we were on our way to the new place. Unloading at the new house was much quicker, taking them about 2.5 hours including reassembling all the furniture. No items were missing or broken. All in, it took about 7.5 hours to move from SF to Tiburon, plus about $100 in extra packing materials and boxes. Moving sucks, it's the absolute worst, but Spartan made it tolerable. I will definitely use them next time I move.

Carlos & his team were outstanding. They showed up early, were very hard working and did a great job moving our 1800 square foot home. We had a hard couch that wouldn't fit through a door and without any hesitation they were able to lift this using a pulley system up through the upstairs balcony. I will use two friends movers again when I move for sure! Great guys.

I had a great experience with Edgar and his crew. To begin with, Edgar was super responsive, answering all my questions promptly. I had to deal with two finnicky HOAs while moving, and they worked hard to ensure that the HOAs were happy during the move. The move itself was so easy with these guys. It took 4 hours (1 of those hours was driving time) to move a large one bedroom apt worth of things, and the resulting cost was a steal. They handled all the items very well, including prickly cacti, a bulky desk, and two of the heaviest drawers I've ever seen. While moving one of our bookshelves, they noticed a crack in the one of the legs -- it was pre-existing, but Edgar pointed it out and said if they had caused it, he would take care of the cost. Overall, I would highly recommend this team. Thanks guys!

Albion was great. After finding them on thumbtack I called and asked them about our planned move. They gave us an estimated time, talked through the things we could do to help, and said they'd be there at 10am on moving day. A week and a half later at 10am exactly they knocked on our door. The whole move went great, they moved our TV, a custom built computer and many other things we had trouble packing. It turns out they had to share an elevator at the new building, which slowed them down a bit. Had this not been the case I think their original estimate would have been spot on. Even with this slow down it wasn't that far off. On top of that their rates are very reasonable. Go with Albion.

We used Smart Move to move from the Bay Area to Sacramento and couldn't be more pleased with our experience. When they arrived (on time, I might add) we were given an estimate as to how many hours the job would take and they finished 1/2 hour earlier than anticipated. We had also packed our personal vehicles full of the more fragile items we owned, and they offered to help unload those items with the extra time remaining on the hour they were working. We had three movers- Johnny, Sergei and Mike. They all had great attitudes, followed our requests for loading certain items, handled our belongings with care, and were very efficient. Not one thing was broken or mishandled. We had each box labeled with colored tags for the rooms at our new place and they put all the boxes in the correct rooms, which made unpacking so much easier. They reassembled some of our furniture and placed the furniture where it belonged so that we wouldn't have to rearrange it later. We are so thankful to this crew for making this move the most efficient and smooth one we've had! This moving company was worth every penny and there was an hourly discount for paying in cash. Thank you Johnny, Sergei and Mike !

Dan and Jeff run one of those companies that actually care about clients. They are super friendly AND professional. - They respond very quickly, confirm everything ahead of time. - They show up on the exact scheduled time. - They give you one price for all your moving needs. - They are flexible & understanding, so I'd recommend letting them know what you need in advance and they'll work with you. - They move quickly to save you money. I cannot recommend Dan and Jeff enough. And this review is not sponsored in any way, just a very happy customer! :)

DDT Moving was beyond what I hoped for in my apartment move. In planning the move, Daniel was extremely responsive, efficient, and flexible in scheduling the dates and times. The pricing is more than fair, especially for the work value you're getting from them. Leading up to the move, Daniel confirmed the job and clarified all details. On the day of the move, they were right on time and got straight to wrapping the furniture and packing up the truck. I really appreciated that they were aware of time and were working hard to stay on track. Everything was wrapped carefully and handled safely. They also came super prepared with other materials (like wardrobe boxes) that we might not have had. Their work ethic is extremely impressive, and I would highly recommend them to anyone. Thank you DDT Moving!!

Dan and Chike (sp?) were very careful with my stuff. They were also very patient and helpful when taking specific direction (e.g. where to place the items within the new apartment). One suggestion for next time - make sure that the person who prepares their truck gives them enough supplies (e.g. a roll of plastic wrap and more than one complete wardrobe box). Overall, I was happy with the moving service and would recommend it to others.

This is a review of my first experience with this company that took place a few months ago (09/06/2016). I was scheduled on a Wednesday at 10AM. Before any moving had been done I was already very pleased with the way they handled their business. Even though I contacted them last minute and needed their services ASAP they were extremely accommodating and found a date/time that worked best for me. My two movers, Sergey and Bogdan, gave me a heads up phone call to let me know they were on the way. They arrived right on time about 15 minutes later. I needed to move out all my belongings in my bedroom and a few pieces of furniture (bedset: queen mattress, bedframe, nightstand, computer desk, dresser) out of the bedroom right next to mine. Both rooms were at the top floor of a 3-story townhouse, and the only way to move my belongings into the truck was through 4 sets of stairs (that were super small, narrow and difficult to work with). They started on the empty room with the furniture first because I actually wasn't even fully done packing my room yet. My boyfriend supervised and said that they carefully wrapped everything and used a lot of bubble wrap and shrink film to make sure everything was very protected. My room was a more complicated because I still had random items and clothing articles scattered around, but Sergey and Bogdan did not mind at all and packed literally EVERYTHING without a single question. I can't imagine how difficult it was for them to get my ridiculously furniture down those stairs (I already get tired just carrying my laundry from the garage). After everything was packed up in their truck, they headed to my new destination. They arrived around the same time I did so I could tell they didn't try to delay their drive time. Sergey and Bogdan immediately began unloading everything into my new apartment. Whenever they did ask me questions, it was about how or where I preferred certain items to go. I was so surprised when they told me they had finished because they worked so fast and quietly. They were very kind and gave me a discount on top of the first discount they had given me already. Overall, their staff were friendly, very professional and polite and they work exceedingly well. In the future I will ONLY use Silicon Valley Luxury Moving for all my moving needs!!

We asked for a move out special from Main Movers last week and I'm happy to report that it has been the smoothest move for us! It took the guys 6/7 hours total, Julian and his guys were effective and sensitive. We've had terrible experiences before with moving companies but Main Movers we've been worry-free. the payment was also declared up front and there were no "surprise" fees. We are very happy with MM and recommend it to one and all.

I hired MP Movers (Marquiz) to assemble a 6 drawer IKEA dresser. He arrived right on time and was very polite. The dresser came in 3 different boxes which had to be moved downstairs to my daughter's room, which he did for me. He was so conscientious that at one point the instructions didn't match the materials and he brought this to my attention. He quoted me a flat fee and stuck to that. All in all, I couldn't have been happier and I will definitely hire MP Movers again. I highly recommend Marquiz and MP Movers.

These movers were fantastic. The handled the furniture with care and their expertise. They followed our instructions and listened to our requests. They were polite and respectful. This was a long distance move from Bay Area to Northern California. The drive is about four hours each way and they arrived only five minutes after us. If you need the services of a moving company please call California Bear Moving Company!

I agree with other reviewers that there is a bit of a disconnect in the office and my estimate was significantly off from my final price. There is also a bit of excessive overwrapping but I can understand why for a long distance move. Rose and Jennifer worked to ensure my final price was closer to the estimate and within my budget. William in logistics ensured the truck arrived within the timeframe I needed for a very specific and tight move due to a work start date. I would say what makes Great Nation great are the moving crews. Eric ran my pick up and did an excellent job securing my items and documenting everything that was loaded into the truck. Fred and Carlos went out of their way to ensure my delivery came on a specific day that was out of their time range. They were pleasant and worked extremely hard even though it was probably an inconvenience for them. Fred was on the crew for my pick up and was familiar with my items and my moving situation and just an absolute pleasure to work with. Even though there were a few hiccups I still 100 percent recommend Great Nation if you are looking for a fast and efficient move with great movers who care. A lot of long distance companies want you to wait weeks for your items. For a NJ to FL move I had my move completed in 4 days. I would definitely use Great Nation again in the future and would say any issue I experienced would happen with any other company. I called after another moving company bailed on me 2 days before my move. Great Nation was able to jump in and coordinate my move, deal with my high stress level, and make sure all issues were handled to my satisfaction. A+++
