For a move to be great it should be correct and affordable, with A2B Movers you are sure to get both. Our move was correct as there was no damage and the movers were on time with the pick-up and the delivery. Also the price of the move was the same and the company did not increase it by a cent. It quote is the most affordable and the company has a five star rating everywhere, this is something they deserve for sure. I would recommend A2B to all and for sure.

Nicest, hard-working and efficient movers I've ever seen. They were on time, polite and enjoyable to be around. I couldn't believe how fast they worked and never without any complaint. So glad I chose them and I would do so again next time.

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!!

I've known Andres for about 7yrs. I have 2 properties that Andres has done numerous repairs and/or installs. I really don't think that there is anything he can't do. Not only does he do the job right, he is also honest, dependable, and the cost is always fair. Good luck trying to find someone else with his knowledge, abilities, and craftsmanship. R.

Tony and his guys did an amazing amount of work in one day. His price was very fair and my yard looks great. I didn't realize how overgrown everything was until they came and cleaned it all up. I would recommend Tony to anyone looking for handyman services.

Main Movers were absolutely awesome! The 3-man team had very positive attitudes towards a pretty huge job that expanded as they not only loaded our main house and 2 cottages/offices, but also at last minutes notice they brought all boxes down from our attic. This was a HUGE job! They never complained and were super quick and courteous. When I made several requests, they replied reassuringly by telling me to "have no worries." They were super well-skilled at disassembling large furniture (a bunk bed in particular for us) and keeping all necessary parts organized and attached so we could reassemble the furniture upon arrival at our new home. I can't give them enough praise. Julian had said they would stay as long as it took to get the job done and they sure did. I highly recommend Main Movers!!! Thanks so much guys!!!

Moving is extremely stressful as we all know, but the pros at Southwest really mitigate a lot of that anxiety. I dealt with the nicest people from Mandy, who was my initial contact and provided me with the moving quote, to Ajay, who provided me with an update and ETA on the arrival of the movers, and then the three movers themselves, Joe Robert and James, who worked tirelessly and efficiently and went above and beyond packing our belongings and going the extra mile (or two), it couldn't have gone better! Thanks Southwest.

Movers are prompt, efficient and careful with your property. They take what you tell them to, leave what you don't need moved and are experts at protecting your property with their blankets, boxes and mattress protection bags. Very reasonable prices. They moved my two bedroom, two bathroom loft style, two level condo in about 4 hours (this included over 35 of my own packed green boxes) I am a satisfied repeat customer!

I give Pratt's Trucking a 9.5! As a Realtor, I sometimes stage my own listings. I hired Billy Pratt of Pratt Trucking to "de-stage" a listing. I was deeply impressed with the level of care he took with my beautiful furniture. He wrapped all pieces in shrink wrap as we were storing it in a very dusty warehouse. He was polite, hardworking and on time. Billy's rates are competitive. I appreciated that he took the time to do the job correctly, and did not cut any corners. Yes, there are others out there who are faster, but they tend to damage my expensive staging furniture. I want a careful mover. I have also seen Pratt's assemble furniture from IKEA at a client's home. They lay all the pieces out on moving pads so your furniture is assembled without a scratch and is assembled correctly. Why squander your valuable weekend assembling that annoying IKEA furniture when you can just hire Pratts? They will do a better job than you, and you won't have a sore back! They also deliver it!

I hired Action Movers to help me move my mom's things from her apartment into an assisted living facility. Every adult child who has gone through this experiences knows the emotional challenge of making such a move. It is a vulnerable experience for the entire family. When I was researching movers, I was afraid I was going to have to deal with gruff, impersonal moving guys who maybe weren't so nice. What surprised me about the process of working with Christina was how compassionate, empathetic and kind she was. She sees moving as a wholistic experience and was really there to listen and to lend help in any way she could, just to simplify and help make things easier for us. When I brought my mom to her new apartment, her face lit up seeing how beautiful her bedroom set looked in the new space. Action Movers helped our family make a delicate and important transition a very smooth and positive experience. They were literally there to take the heavy burden off our shoulders. Thank you!

Moving can be a stressful and hiring movers can be even more so. I've had a couple bad experiences before, so I was a little unsure what to expect on thumbtack. Ken wasn't the first to reply to my request, but of the half dozen responses I received, he was the only one who wanted to see what we had to move in person. I had been considering another mover, although that fell through when that mover became unavailable for a two week period without any prior notice. Ken's quote was also more than reasonable, and I felt comfortable with him, so we scheduled the move. Our time was not specific (sometime mid morning). I don't know if that's typical for him, but it didn't bother me once we knew when he was on his way. Ken doesn't text, so you'll actually have to pick up the phone to reach him. I think that's probably better than email as well. I like texting, but I think Ken's old-school about that. Ken showed up as promised with a second mover, Theo. His quoted rate was for two people, not per person as with the other quotes I received. I later found out Ken (and Theo) are involved in scouting, which explains the ethics I saw Ken display before, during, and after the move. I was extremely pleased with the work Ken and Theo did. They were professional and amenable to all the extra requests I made of them. We ended up using them to help move some additional items, so the move took pretty much all day. And at the end, Ken didn't try to pad the hours or demand extra money (or any kind of tip--which I gave them anyway because they deserved it.) Ken charges mileage for his truck (fuel costs at 9 mpg) and return travel time from the origin of the move, which is pretty standard fare. Only one quote I received didn't do this, but their hourly rate was almost triple. You do the math. He also did not require me to commit to a minimum number of hours (although this move ended up taking more than 9 hours.) They weren't the fastest movers, but they weren't the slowest, and they were careful with our belongings, which I really appreciated. What's the good of hiring movers only to have your things damaged in the move? We also had difficult stairs at both the from and to locations. Ken doesn't charge extra for stairs, etc. It takes longer to be careful negotiating the tight corners, but that's to be expected. They put blankets down on all the railings. I think they might have run out of blankets, but I'm not sure. One suggestion: Be sure you've got everything packed and larger pieces accessible. They're used to moving furniture (I think Ken specializes in moving antique and high-end furniture) not packing boxes. Part of what slowed us down was that we were not completely ready for them, and we kept adding new items as they became ready to move. Still, Ken and Theo just smiled and asked what else we had. I would highly recommend Wood Frog Transport to anyone looking for a good mover. Ken made our experience a positive one, which may be the very first time that has happened for me in dozens of moves over the years.

Jason, Rodolfo, and Rene did a great job helping me move today. They didn't even flinch when I said I was moving to the top of a hill and there were two sets of stairs up to the apartment. This is the first time I've hired movers, and it was very much worth it. Thanks!

We hired Best moving van lines to help us with the move in February. My main concern was that the company had some bad reviews online. But they really were efficient. The movers just meant business. Nothing was overlooked by the 4 movers who came to work on such an excellent hourly rate. Even their vans were quite reasonable priced to hire. I was very impressed to see how all my beloved pieces of furniture were wrapped perfectly and loaded in the vans. They delivered on time as well. Bad reviews or not, I will definitely hire them again.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
