Jiri and his two movers were on time, super efficient, careful and friendly! They took care when moving my furniture and were VERY helpful and thorough. I will definitely hire them again!
I guess the good reviews might be from the local move within SF but not outside of SF. In my move from South Bay to SF, they were fine in the first part but it took them to drive for 1.5 hours to a place which we drove for only 45 mins bc they went to the wrong address but only deducted 10 mins from the whole time. I understand big truck would spend more time on the road but come on, 35mins difference (after the 10 mins deduction) There was def no traffic on the way there. So if you want to save more time + money especially if it’s a long-distance move, this one might not be the best choice.
We were very nervous about hiring movers. We chose Two friends because of our original meeting and pricing! Santos was professional and friendly and very informative. Our schedule changed a bit and they were very cooperative & flexible. Our long distance move went off without a hitch. Everything arrived safely and in a very timely manner- These guys worked very hard and efficiently. I've already recommended them to the people who bought our house! Great Job and a big THANK YOU to everyone at Two Friends Movers!
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!
The owner was communicative but they were late on the day of the move. The movers were nice and moved everything carefully.
I highly recommend using Albion Moving and Storage! Steve and Joe were great movers. They were on time, quick, and knowledgable about the best way to move / pack our furniture. Our move was particularly difficult given the location (3rd floor apartment and far from storage location) and they were still able to complete the move in their estimated / quoted time with ease. Would definitely use them again in the future!
We recently hired Smart Move for a short distance move of our 2-bedroom home. Booking the job was easy with Alex who was both quick with his responses and patient with all my questions. For the move itself we had VS, Beric, and Arthur who were all friendly and hard-working. We did hit a few snags along the way but Alex was incredibly apologetic and has been doing everything in his power to make our moving experience a good one. Plus, their transparent pricing cannot be beat! Further, they will haul away extra furniture for you at a small cost and lug away your cardboard boxes too. We'll definitely be using Smart Move again as their customer service really can't be beat. And this is from someone who has moved 3 times in 2 years!
Last minute job request after I broke a toe. I've moved 22 times in the last 18 years including 5 international moves. For this job I needed help to move boxes from 1st floor to garage and then pack them into minivan. Sounds simple, but some movers clearly don't spend enough time playing tetris. Mike and Morgan worked hard to fit as much crap as they could into my minivan. You get it, when you just want to drive some stuff to the next place.. so you don't need it mega bubble wrapped but you still don't want it break. Not to be sexist but as woman who has moved so many frickin' times, having Morgan on the job, she understood and oversaw the items that were important to me.
People who represented this company were personable and informative for the most part when I spoke with them on the phone. They were flexible as to the timing of the move, which was not a big job so had to be added to other shipments or loads. Items were delivered a bit earlier than the estimated date, which was good in our case. This was a long distance move and given it was a fairly small load, I think it took a few days to get an estimate of time of arrival, but they did get it to us in advance and arrived when they said they would.
My movers were running about 30 minutes late but called ahead of time to let me know. Once they arrived, the movers were friendly, professional and worked in a timely manner. Everything was transferred without a scratch - even down two flights of stairs and up another flight of stairs. A nice service - they broke down my bed frame and rebuilt everything in my new apartment. I'm very satisfied and would recommend Bay Small Moves!
Movers were 1.5 hours late, and I had to call a few times to verify they were coming. Once they did show up, they were efficient and they worked hard. Only thing is that they demanded 30$ tip for each mover (so extra 90 for 3 movers.) I would recommend them to a friend since they did a very nice job wrapping all furniture and did not break anything or scratch anything.
ML Movers were professional, on-time, and efficient movers. Working with Miguel was actually delightful. From the moment I started my project on thumbtack, Miguel was incredibly responsive. His quote was very straightforward and easy to understand. He runs his business professionally, sending the contract, insurance and other legal documents via DocuSign before the move. He was also able to accommodate my request for a move on a very short notice (less then 7 days from first speaking to Miguel to the move date). He and his team of two movers arrived 5min early and since I had packed a good amount of items they were able to finish packing and package up my furniture, move and reassemble my furniture in 2.5 hours (my move was only 2 miles away). His team was even able to move my really heavy couch up 2 flights of stairs. He wrapped up with a final checklist review and was on his way. He also gave me a discount for paying cash. Overall would highly recommend Miguel and ML Movers!!
The movers were on time, professional, fast, and efficient. They successfully moved our entire 4-bedroom house across town in one (long) day. Very pleased.
Serious quality movers. Really helped us with all of our 3 bedrooms. They carefully covered all furniture with blankets then wrapped in plastic. Much easier than our last move! Thank you, Trico Long Distance Movers!
J was amazing at communication. He showed up on time, actually he was about 15mins early. This is amazing considering the last movers I hired were about 4 hours late, but not J. I hired J to handle a within the same complex move. He and his partner moved a two story apt on one side of our complex to a glad one floor apartment on the opposite side. They were fast, no nonsense and again reliable. I would not hesitate to hire them again.
Great service. Scheduling my move was easy, Tim provided all necessary information and was courteous and professional throughout the conversation. On the moving day, two movers came on time, they called me before arriving too. It took them 1.5 hours to load my studio apartment and another hour to unload everything at my new apartment. They disassembled and put together my bed and dining table and blanket wrapped ALL of my furniture. Will definitely recommend to a friend.
It was my first move in the US, and the first move with the furniture, so I don't have any other company to compare, but I am completely happy with our move and my husband (who didn't want to hire a professional company but to rent a truck and ask his friends for help) thanked me in the end. I did make a lot of preparation - almost all of the 'small stuff' was already moved to a new home (highly recommend to do this if you are moving - it saves tons of time and energy the big day), but still there were some boxes and bags and the furniture of course. My one bedroom apartment was emptied in less than 40 minutes. I could not believe the speed of it! We were moving from our old house so it was not a long commute, but the total move took less than 2 hours. It was crucial for me - as I have a two year old child and I didn't want her day to be completely disrupted. The furniture was handled very carefully - not a single scratch! Highly recommend Movers and Movers to anyone who is going to move to new house. Moving is a stress by itself and a big part of it can be alleviated by a right company.
Ivan Hernandez did an amazing job with my move recently. Ivan was very professional and was very careful with my stuff. He showed up on time with his crew and they moved at lightning speed. All the crew were very professional, careful, kind and respectful. All in all, I hate to move and havn't had to for a long time. I always think about movers slamming my stuff around, BUT not this crew. Ivan and co.did a stand up job and we even had a laugh or two. I hope i don't have to move again, but if I did, or if I was you, I would hire Ivan without a doubt.
I have used North Bay Movers several times in past years and this past move was the best yet. Movers were energetic, competent, patient and didn't hit a wall or gouge any furniture. They worked well as a team and seemed to enjoy their job. They moved one truck of furniture and after loading it, moved another near truckload from the second floor to the main floor with not a hitch. I am very pleased with the way David runs his company. Hopefully I will not be moving again for a long time, but he would be my first and only choice. Since you asked for what could have been better, I will say that I didn't know I would be charged extra for shrink wrap. A small negative in a large positive experience.
Paul and Katelyn managed all of our requirements with timely responses and quality service, at a price far better than the other quotes we received. They even dealt with an unexpected snowstorm without missing their delivery time. We would highly recommend Paul and his company for any long distance move.
