Jiri in the office quoted 2 men for $80 an hour, or 3 men for $105 an hour. I gave Jiri explicit information and asked for an estimate on what he thought the final cost would be. Jiri said because of afternoon traffic, it could cost between $250 and $300. It took 2 hours, the men worked fast, wasted no time and worked quickly and professionally. However, Jiri charged $300 for the job anyway. Not the 2 men at $80 or $160 total quote. I paid the men $240, because they were good and it was not their fault but it was Jiri in the office I had the problem with. Plus, at this point, I was then told there was a $240 minimum. First I heard of that, and it should have mentioned before and been put in writing. I have my notes, no, never mentioned that. The men told me to take it up with Jiri. I was ready to give them a big tip but by then I was frustrated and annoyed. Not my first rodeo, Jiri. I've moved before. You don't get away with that. Stick to the quote, don't give an estimate of the job that is inflated and then try to stick to that, and if there is a minimum, put that in writing on the quote. Or was it possibly just a misunderstanding? In that case, you owe me $80. SRC ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ See Jiri's quote below: Mon 1:50 PM Chatting with Jiri Priam $260 total price Howdy, Thank you for your interest in our moving services!

I really was surprised how fast they were. They really know what they are doing. The cost was so much less than I expected this to be. I don't know why I have never hired moving labor before considering how often I move. This was a very good experience and I will use their service again the next time I move. Thank you!

I'm so impressed with the service. I organized to have some furniture moved the night before Labor Day. I got the quote instantly, we confirmed the details and they were spot on time and quick to move the furniture from one place to the other. I highly recommend these guys, you won't be disappointed.

The service was excellent. They moved my 10x10 storage unit in Sacramento to a 1-bedroom apartment in Oakland, CA. The two movers, Amílcar and José, were not only professional and efficient, they were also mindful and respectful. They worked diligently and communicated very well. I will definitely use Larro's Moving Services the next time I need to move and would refer them to my closest friends and peers. Also, you can't beat their price! At the end, the total amount due was under the estimated price, and they definitely deserved a nice tip. Thanks again!

I had a very easy time working with Larro's Moving Services. Ricardo (the manager) was able to provide me with a certificate of insurance for my building within 48 hours without any hassle. The movers, Miguel and Luis, were punctual, professional, and knew how to handle everything without bothering me at all. They were very careful and safe when loading my items into the truck and when moving it into my new apartment. 5 stars for the movers, would definitely use Larro's again.

We hired 3 of Santos' team to help us unpack two PODS. They turned up early and got right down to work, moving furniture and boxes into our house and garage. They handled everything with great care, unwrapping and folding the blankets we had used. They placed everything where we wanted it to be, they assembled the furniture and ensured that everything was working properly before they left. The guys were friendly and professional. I would absolutely recommend Two Friends Movers to anyone looking for help with their 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!

Edgar and his team helped me move my stuff in a U-box shipped long distance from another state to an apartment here in San Francisco. Because the U-box arrival date was only tentative I had to reschedule my moving time with them twice. Edgar was very responsive and understanding to my requests and tried his best to make the time work. On the moving day they arrived on time, did the job faster than expected, and were professional about handling stuff. They are also very cheerful, which makes it pleasant to do business with them!

I hired these guys for a local moving from Sunnyvale to San Francisco. They showed up about on time and did the job pretty efficient. They are friendly, too. But my floor mirror is broken during the move (although Edgar told me it's the first thing broke on him in the past 4 years. I guess it's just my luck?). It could have been 5 stars if nothing was broken.

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.

Steve and Albion Moving and Storage did an outstanding job in helping us move a few large pieces of furniture, plus a few extra items, all with great care and efficiency. They arrived on time, were very nice, and had the best rate from all other places I got a quote from around the Bay Area. Would definitely use Albion again for any large moving jobs.

Very happy with my experience. Initially, I was nervous hiring online, as I didn't get the sense that the companies recognized he scope of the move. I was moving from an 1500sq ft house, but my garage was packed with stuff we'd accumulated over the years. I had poor experience in the past, with companies underestimating and then not able to finish. Scott took the time to come see my house to understand just how big a move it was. As a result, he recommended 2days to move (1day for boxes, 1 day for furniture). This worked great. The price was higher than other companies, but the level of service was worth it. The team was very diligent and careful with our goods. Won't be moving again for a while, but will remember Scott and his team next time I do.

I hired the moving and packing services of Scott. Scott was very prompt replying to all my messages (usually within 5 minutes) and we were able to setup a time and date for the move quickly. I requested a specific time for the move to be done because of my unique circumstances, and Scott accommodated the request. 2 movers turned up right on time. They were super friendly and accommodated all my requests. They brought all the packing material and boxes. They spent every minute packing/moving and the move was done very quickly. I highly recommend Scott and his moving/packing services. I would definitely recommend him to all my friends and also use him again for any move.

We asked for help uncrating and moving a 300+ lb marble-top table to our upstairs dining area. Scott and 1 crew member handled it quickly and efficiently after coming out to estimate the work required, which helped us feel comfortable with the job. Everything is in the right place with no damage! They were extra helpful with a bizarre shipping crate and difficult stairs, and gave us great advice if we need to move it again in the future.

We used Smart Move SF to move our stuff to new house located 6-minute drive away. Heard about a very good reputation about Smart Move SF and we were not disappointed after watching they completed their job. The moving team led by Johnny, along with Maris, Vlad and Sergei. Johnny worked very efficiently. They arrived before 9AM and finished their job in the afternoon even with an hour lunch break. One of the tough job, and they did it very well, was to move our huge refrigerator out of old house into the new. The door was simply too small to let the refrigerator go thru. They had to dissemble the door, let it slip thru narrow door and re-assembled it back at the new house. Another tough job (or jobs) was to re-assemble dismantled futon bed and two "antique" teak beds back to their original form. The team was polite, cordial and friendly. Would ask question before they moved stuff and re-ask question when they put stuff into rooms. Great overall experience.

Recently used Smart Move SF to move from a house to a condo. The condo required the move to be completed by a specific time, which most other moving companies said they wouldn't be able to do. Smart Move SF accomplished the mission - they moved us in time and they did an outstanding job. We previously used several other moving companies and we're happy we tried a new company this time because Rocket Moving was the best by far. Their 'all-inclusive' pricing was truly all-inclusive. There were no surprises, no haggling, no hidden fees. They were professional, showed up on time and packaged everything quite well (ie nothing was damaged). Highly recommended!

We were moving out of one location to move into another - and it's not until you start packing and loading the truck when you realize how much stuff you really have. Nevertheless, Nick and Jason were troupers all the way to the last item! They arrive slightly before the scheduled 10am move and we surveyed the apartment to see what all would be leaving that day. It was certainly enough for two trips; as we discovered later. They moved us in by 5:30 and we planned for next year's move - jokingly of course. Great work guys!

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!!
