    I am very happy with my experience with My American Movers. The communication with Yohely was great and I was able to schedule the date and time I wanted. The actual move went smoothly and I was very impressed by the care and speed with which Cesar, Martin, and Freddy worked. I moved a large apartment from Downtown LA to Long Beach and the total time was 5 hours, including the double drive time (which must be charged per California law), which I think is very reasonable.

    All three of the gentlemen who moved us were very polite and got down to business. No dilly dallying and my treasures were respected and wrapped very well. Thank you for making a stressful experience much easier. Great job!

    They were efficient, very mindful of how things were wrapped and packed, and cautious with fragile items such as glassware and pictures. They were friendly and professional from the receptionist who set everything up to the actual movers. I would definitely use them again if I moved

    Great Customer Service
    These guys are really professionals. I've moved my apartment within the same zip code a couple of weeks back, and I needed somebody to help me moved the bulk of my stuff. They show up at my house as early as it can get on the day of the move and they work relentlessly throughout the entire day. 6 hours later my apartment was moved and all my belongings got there safe and sound. No scratches, nothing damaged...really impressed. Highly recommending these guys for anyone that gets through the pain of moving.

    AWFUL EXPERIENCE!
    WOULD NOT HIRE THIS COMPANY TO MY WORST ENEMY! TOOK 11 HOURS TO MOVE KITCHEN, FAMILY & LIVING ROOMS, GARAGE, 2 BEDROOMS, DINING ROOM & OUTDOOR TABLE & CHAIRS. WORST PART WAS THAT THERE WERE MULTIPLE ITEMS BROKEN INCLUDING 2 VERY EXPENSIVE ANTIQUE CANDLE STICKS & WASHING MACHINE. CARELESSNESS WAS TAKEN WHEN REMOVING HOSE FROM WASHER & CANNOT BE REPAIRED SO I NOW HAVE TO PURCHASE NEW WASHER. MOVERS FRIENDLY BUT VERY INEFFICIENT. I HAVE MOVED SEVERAL HOMES & HAVE NEVER HAD ISSUES UNTIL NOW WITH MY AMERICAN MOVERS.

    We regret that your experience with us was a negative one. We work daily to provide our customers with an smooth and great experience when they are relocating and regret when we fail to do so. When our crews arrive the morning of every move they will provide you with an estimated time for the move. You told your foreman that other moving companies took less time during your previous relocations, we do not know what those companies move and cannot provide you with the same time those companies did because of so many variants. The day of your move 2 bedrooms, a family room, living room, office and garage as well as patio. Our crews had two preform to trips meaning your household had more than you anticipated. You have not contact our office regarding any damages, we take responsibility for damages that were done by our crew, however you hired 2 additional guys who were helping you that day. Please send pictures and we will gladly try to resolve the damage issue, if these were done by our crew. We believe that every human being should be treated with respect, however you treated our crew in a demeaning way by calling them names, being disrespectful to them as people. Never the less they perform your relocation, and gave you all the packing material for free, which they informed the company of, packing material are an additional cost, however our crew wanted to satisfy you and gave it to you for free. You gave our crew $40.00 each they were sure that you were happy and we did to, especially because you have not call us to claim any damages. your response to this review.

    Solid and great price but less than perfect
    They were fast, nice to talk with, and got our move done QUICK! Unfortunately we noticed our one of our fiberglass dining chairs and wood nightstand scratched significantly. Looking at the contract, insurance only covers 60¢ per pound so I didn't even bother calling them as the money back would be nothing compared to replacing them or repairing the furniture. Next time I might use a more expensive moving company with more comprehensive insurance against these sorts of things. They also leaned a board up against our freshly painted walls and caused a very noticeable nick (white walls). Thankfully we are planning to hang our TV over it so I won't have to repair and repaint.

    Great Moving Company
    They notified me 20 minutes before their arrival that they were on their way. As soon as they showed up they got straight to paper work and then loading everything up. They worked very quickly and efficiently. They were very friendly and professional also. I would definitely recommend this company to anyone making a move. The price was also very affordable compared to other companies I received quotes from.

    Crappy service like this!
    Several Problems 1.st several items like my computer desk they asked if I wanted it to be moved to the new apt. and "yes I do" so the mover proceeds to take the desk apart no problem until later that day at the new apt I go to put the shelves back in the desk and the shelves were missing so I call and ask Yoheli "where are my shelves to my computer desk" Yoheli "hold on, let me call you back" 5 minutes later Yoheli calls back and tells me "the driver said you told him you would move them yourself" I say "WHAT!" Yoheli repeats herself and I'm like I did not tell him that why would I tell him to take the desk to the new place but leave the shelves for me it's not like I'm paying My American movers what I call way too much money for half ass service. there were several other things that got left behind like a chair that they were told several times to load on there truck but somehow that chair is still sitting at the old place and it looks like I will have to pay another person or company to move it. I'm a little pissed off I mean they even moved the chair from the bedroom to the living room like they were going to put it on the truck but nope nothing beats spending almost $600 for crappy service.

In an emergency last minute situation they not only saved me but did it for a good price. I will never hire another moving company again and am so glad I found My American movers! I finally have a go-to company that I can trust.

    Had an amazing move, just wish I would have known you get a discount with cash payment. They did such a great job and stuck to their word so I still give them 5 stars. I had to reschedule twice due to escrow and they didn't even hassle me about it. Would hire again.

Q&A

Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
Double Drive Time is the only legal way to charge for travel time in the state of California. The time spent driving, after loading the truck with your items, from your pick-up location to your destination location is doubled. For example; if you are moving from North Hollywood, CA to Burbank, CA and it took the movers 15 minutes to drive from North Hollywood to Burbank you will be charged for 30 minutes of their time. This would be at the same hourly rate of your quote and is included in our minimum hours.
What types of customers have you worked with?
We provide local, residential and commercial moves every single day. We also provide long distance residential moves on a weekly basis as well.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Never book with a broker and always make sure to receive a binding in-home estimate from any moving company that offers a flat rate.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Every local community has a story, a history, and a unique personality that cannot be replicated. This is often thanks to specialized, small-scale businesses, like ours, which contribute to a neighborhood’s distinctive character and promote a thriving ecosystem in their community. Small, independent businesses offer diverse products and services, fostering economic resilience by removing the local economy’s dependence on a single industry. When you buy local, you build local, and deepen your connection to your own community.
