    Steve and Joe, were amazing! They were professional, on time and curitous. It was the smoothest move I've even had. I would highly recommend them to anyone!

  • 5/5 stars Local Moving (under 50 miles) Verified Review

    Steve is an old school wonder. It is obvious why Albion has been in business for 35 years. They are professional, reasonably priced and incredibly fast. I will continue to call them any time I need anything moved.

    We used Albion for a short local move. We liked the fact that there were only two movers, both experienced.This made it easy to make sure only the right items were packed as many items needed to be left behind. Their work discipline was incredible. Even though they charged by the hour, they took no breaks and worked straight from 9 am to 3pm. No complaints from them when my wife asked to rearrange some heavy furniture and remove a stacked washer dryer from our new place. An incredible value and no hidden surprise charges. I would highly recommend them.

  • 5/5 stars Local Moving (under 50 miles) Verified Review

    We hired Albion storage to move our stuff from our apartment when we were traveling. They shifted our stuff and placed in the new apartment as it was. We had to do nothing once we returned from our vacation. De assembling and assembling of furniture, kitchen stuff and wardrobes were shifted very well. We will surely hire Albion again when needed.

    Good

  • 5/5 stars

    This company was fantastic. Steve showed up right on schedule to give us an estimate for the move. He and his partner arrived right on time the day of the move and helped keep us focused on where things were going to end up at the new location. They made a very stressful day much less so because of their easy demeanor. Very fair price and great service. I would recommend them without reservation. Thank You Steve.

  • 5/5 stars Local Moving (under 50 miles) Verified Review

    Willing workers, unfailingly pleasant, experienced, good teammates, very fair price for top Quality work. I'll recommend them without qualification.

  • 5/5 stars Local Moving (under 50 miles) Verified Review

    These guys are true professionals who understand how to properly move it all from heavy furniture pieces up & down stairs, to the myriad of miscellany (lamps, printers and other things that don't box up so neatly). They're knowledgeable, careful, unflappable, no drama or sales pitches, roll up the sleeves and get the job done team. I'm very picky and these guys impressed. Will definitely hire again.

  • 4/5 stars Local Moving (under 50 miles) Verified Review

    Steve and Joe came and efficiently disassembled furniture, loaded the truck, moved me and re-assembled my furniture at the new place. They also helped take one piece of furniture to the dump.

  • 4/5 stars Piano Moving Verified Review

    I live in a duplex and needed to move my 6' grand piano from one unit to the other. Albion was the only moving company that sent me a quote. I thought the price was a little high as I did not need a truck or anything because I was moving it within the same house. But I needed it moved in a week, so made an appointment with them. They were 15min early and did an efficient job. I thought they would wrap my piano more but I guess it wasn't necessary for a short distance. They were polite to me and respectful of each other and worked as a team, not yelling at each other loudly like some other movers who can't agree on what to do. Overall it was a pretty good experience.

    I was so happy that Steve was able to move my piano. He was professional and courteous, and he was especially sensitive to my time and stotage constraints. Not only were they fast and efficient, but Albion Moving and Storage was the lowest bid I got. For these reasons , I will recommend Albion Moving and Storage every time!

    Wow! My husband and I just moved from San Lorenzo Village to San Mateo, CA. Thumbtack has been a BIG HELP! This is the first time we hired a moving company, we feel so blessed that we chose Albion Moving & Storage. STEVE AND JOE ROCK!!! These guys know what they are doing, they are careful, organized, efficient, and worked hard the whole move which took 1.5 days with their large truck and a large box trailer. We packed all of the boxes, Steve and Joe arrived 30min early, and moved a 3 bedroom/2 car garage (full of storage)/patio furniture and an incredible amount of potted plants, to our home in San Mateo, which has a 2nd story Master Suite and large attic storage; no damages and everything was moved to the right rooms. Their rates are comprehensive - they arrive well equipped and ready to work! I am already recommending Albion to my friends at work.

  • 5/5 stars Furniture Moving and Heavy Lifting Verified Review

    ALBION did a good job moving our 1 BR apt with heavy furniture, disassembling and reassembling bed and desk, on time, efficient. When I asked the week before our move date, Steve postponed our move two days at our request-- with no charge for rescheduling, since I had been sick for two weeks and unable to do all the packing I had planned. Then my husband broke his wrist, and we ended up with almost an extra hour needed above what was projected on our move day.; no complaints and they saw it through. They worked efficiently and quietly, asking direction so all boxes were delivered exactly as we wanted, and all with care. I was very satisfied.

    My experience with Albion moving was top notch! My interactions with Steven Ridgeway set the ideal tone. He was fast, friendly and promised a lot. Then he delivered on every promise, arriving dead on time, phone calls as to ETA, he moved things quickly, quietly and carefully. His unload was porderly and efficient with nothing broken. His price was also the best I'd found. I'd use him and his company again in a heartbeat.

    Movi
    ng is always a major hassle, but Steve, Joe and Jerry of Albion Moving truly made it a pleasant experience. They arrived promptly, assessed my furniture and efficiently and securely loaded it from my 2 level home to my new tri-level townhouse 37 miles away. A few of my items were very tall and heavy, but they managed to maneuver them up my narrow staircase to the 2nd and 3rd level of my home without a scratch.

    I trusted them so much that I requested their service a few days later to move my new refrigerator (the appliance company I purchased it from were unsuccessful in moving it up my narrow staircase). Steve went out of his way to fit me into his busy schedule.

    I truly appreciated the service of Albion Moving and would HIGHLY RECOMMEND them to anyone who is in need of a moving company!! I will definitely call on them again if I have any future moving needs.

    Moving was ok but the work down was quite slow + driving time charge was 1.5 hours + break time cost us total 8+ hours for 5-6 hours of work. Also some damage while moving in and out. Hope they wrap some bulky furniture to avoid damage while on stairs.

    Steven R. from Albion Moving and Storage replied to this review on June 28, 2015

    The drive time was explained more than once, Google maps estimate 42 minutes from Warm Springs to North San Ramon in a car, it took 45 minutes in a fully loaded 28ft truck.
    We did take a 5 minute break on the load and on the unload it was over 94 degrees in all fairness.
    You kept us waiting for 15 minutes while you took a shower then another 10 minutes while you moved your cars from the driveway.
    Everything was blanket wrapped and I dispute that there was any damage whatsoever you tried to pin the hole in the wall behind the dresser mirror from your last move on us.
    My gut feeling was to walk away that morning but I didn't want to leave you stranded, I should have stuck to my gut feeling.

    These guys were great. We asked them to move us into a new house, and upon arrival they immediately realized that I had underestimated the size of the job. They ended making two trips and worked late to finish the job. Their prices were also great -- the final bill was about 1/4 of what we were quoted by Mayflower.

    This company was amazing. Once we got everything packed we all realized this was going to be a bigger job than first anticipated. Steve and his crew came looked over the job and didn't not run away. Though I would not have blamed them if they did. Instead they got another truck, three more guys and proved to be most hard working group I have ever seen. Yes there was an extra charge for the extra manpower and truck but it was incredibly reasonable and disclosed. They were careful with our belongings, walls and flooring. I would definitely use them again and highly recommend them to everyone. They were worth every penny and then some. Thank you for an amazing job!

    We used Albion for a simple move (not much stuff), but they were fantastic. Arrived a little early, loaded up efficiently and helped us get all the furniture just into the right spot at the new place (even though that meant moving it around a couple of time when we could not make up our minds.) I would recommend them highly.

    Though the job got done it had an over-all unpleasantness about it. Boxes had instructions on which room they go to, but most of the things for the master bath and master bedroom are stuck deep in my garage. I have no bedding, pillows, alarm clock, or toothbrush.
    On a positive note. They agreed to unload a trailer my father had driven over as my sister is moving in with me and they were very flexible about the date.

  • 5/5 stars Local Moving (under 50 miles) Verified Review

    === SUMMARY ===

    I am a software engineer in Silicon Valley living in a one-bedroom apartment. The idea of moving all my packed boxes and large pieces of furniture, like my sofa, entertainment center, and bookcases, was extremely daunting. Do I hire friends to help me move? Do I hire expensive professional movers? Do I do it myself and get one of those PODS? "Ain't nobody got time fo' dat!"

    Steve and Joe from Albion Moving and Storage were able to move all my items into their truck and to their final destinations safely and quickly. Their truck was extremely large, so even the largest pieces had room to be properly lifted in and carried out.

    What made me pick Albion Moving and Storage over other competitors at first was their cheaper hourly rate and their 2-hour minimum. Whereas most other moving companies require a 3-hour minimum, these guys only required 2 hours. In my head, I felt the job would only take 2-or-so hours, so this made the most sense.

    Steve and Joe worked extremely quickly and efficiently, and the job legitimately took 3 hours. And that is great. It would have taken my friends and I all day (possibly two) to do everything these guys did in 3 hours.

    Steve and Joe are extremely nice and awesome. They made sure they knew where each item was going (new apartment or storage) and got everything to its final destination quickly and with great care.

    I am for sure going to be calling these guys again next time I need to move. This was my first moving experience living on my own, so I was extremely nervous. These guys put me at ease and have gained my trust. Thanks Steve and Joe!


    === DETAILS ===

    They disassembled my dining table quickly and efficiently to have it all fit in my storage unit I was moving things to. They also let me purchase a sofa cover for $5 (very cheap compared to what the storage facility I was using charges for them).

    I actually had two places I needed my stuff moved to: A storage unit and my new apartment. This was no problem for them. They put everything into their large truck, went to the storage unit, put in everything that went there, and then drove to my new apartment, where they moved in all the remaining items. I was afraid this "moving items to two places" thing was going to be a problem, but it was not at all.

    They disassembled and reassembled my bed for me, which was very nice. They brought their own doorstops, and had all the equipment they needed to move even my heaviest piece of furniture (my entertainment center). They also have their own insurance, which is a very important detail when hiring movers.

    The whole process with them took 3 hours. I already had all of my stuff in boxes and all the furniture empty and ready to be moved. All they had to do was move things from my apartment to the truck, and then from the truck to the new locations.

    They were very efficient at putting the furniture into my storage unit. Had I been charged with storing the items inside, I would have done it in such a way where it wouldn't have fit. These guys assured me they could fit everything, and were able to make everything fit perfectly on their first attempt. (No rearranging was needed, they had already planned out what would go where as soon as they saw the storage unit and the space they had to work with.)

    Definitely will hire again!

    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.

    Hi Cosmo, Thank you very much for the great review, Steve.

    How often does anyone ever BRAG about how good their movers were!? I mean, normally it's a difficult experience at best, an exceedingly stressful time... and generally filled with so much upheaval, loose ends and countless details. The concept itself explains the least grounding exercise you've ever been through. You are literally in the process of MOVING your existence. Even if its 1 continent.. or 1 mile away.

    Now imagine an experience where the folks executing this ridiculous exercise ARE grounded, are unbelievably skilled in what they do, exude an incredible confidence in moving your Mount Rushmore -- rock by rock, as it is!... and do it all with no bull----, no whining... and an Old World work ethic you almost never find anymore!

    THOSE folks are Steven Ridgway and Albion Moving and Storage!

    Steven and Albion moved my ridiculousness 2 weeks ago... and I truly have not stopped talking about what an amazing job they did. So much so, that people I have spoke to have already hired them for their move!!

    I'm in my 50s, with 5 decades of "stuff" (as the famous George Carlin routine goes!) with 2 teenage boys, 2 dogs and a girlfriend (in a separate location) that Albion moved into another (bigger) home in the same city. I take a lot of pride in my designer furnishings and did my best researching and choosing the right company for the job.

    I knew 10 minutes after meeting Steven at our initial move assessment, that he was the guy. I come from the Midwest (Chicago) and over the years I've further developed the darn good BS Meter I was born with. I truly felt nothing but Green Lights from Steven from the very start -- and it stayed that way the entire process!

    I had a complicated Close of Escrow... and Steven stayed right with me through all the stops and starts. And when it was finally time to go -- Steven and Albion Moving were right there, right with me... right on time. And they moved my existence with incredible skill, expediency and (like I said) confidently. Once the process started, there was no negotiating, no complaining, no hand wringing... just men getting the job... DONE!!

    I can't put it any simpler. Moving sucks. The entire process sucks. Steven and the Albion guys were my Shining Beacon in the heat of that battle. And I am unconditionally appreciative for that.

    Stop looking for the right guys for your next move. They're right HERE! Albion Moving and Storage.

    Albion will be the first company I call the next time I need assistance with a move. They showed up on time, moved fast and furious - but with great care. Their rates were reasonable and i was especially pleased with their skill in assembling furniture. They were a pleasure to work with - from the initial planning of the move to the final box delivery. Excellent service!!

    We are very happy with Steve's work. He was very accommodating regarding setting up a time that worked for us. He showed up exactly on time. & he and his assistant worked very hard to (and succeeded in) accomplish(ing) our job. We definitely got our money's worth & highly recommend him.

    Hi Norma, Thanks for the awesome review, Steve.

    I would absolutely recommend them. I had two locations moving into one apartment. One from SF --> Redwood City, and the other from Mountain View --> Redwood City. While other companies gave me a quote to move both apartments in one day, Steve was the only one to suggest that we move each apartment on two separate days (which meant I didn't have to pay for the drive to and from MV and SF), and his quote was much lower than what the others companies gave me. They were on time both days (15 mins early, in fact), and were very quick and careful with our items.

    Steven was very easy to work with and professional. The move was flawless and timely. I had a snag with closing a loan on time so Steven worked with me on a back-up plan. Fortunately it was not needed and everything went without a hitch. I would use Albion again and recommend to family and friends.

    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 had a wonderful experience moving with Albion Moving. Steve came out and have us an estimate with a guaranteed of no additional charges. He and Joe arrived on time for the move, and proceeded to work hard for the duration. My husband was amazed at how hard they worked from start to finish, and he's not easily impressed. When placing the furniture in the new space, they took care to match up mirrors with the correct pieces, even when they hadn't been together previously. We had no damage, and it was a pleasant experience start to finish. I would use them again.

    Simply Excellent. I had to break up my move across several days and they were exactly on time. They also believe they are there to help you move, not just carry boxes. They eagerly helped me with some last minute packing. And they are quick. A whole bunch of moving can be accomplished in just a few hours and you are never surprised with a flat rate. Thanks guys!!

    Steven and his employee were very prompt and knew their stuff! Loading went very well, and nothing was treated roughly. After reaching the storage space, they began unloading. It was very hot weather, but they didnt stop unloading until the job was done. We are very pleased, and would hire them again.

    4 men came for 2 days on time and in the guaranteed price.
    They worked well and we have a lot of heavy wood furniture, so
    it was a challenging move. Quality of work was excellent and
    they changed locations of furniture as we needed. Only a minor problem of a scratch near the front door.

    Working with Steve and Albion was very easy. Steve was responsive, his quote was accurate, and the actual move was quite easy. I have moved quite a lot over the years, mostly corporate cross country moves. This was the first move that I didn't have to worry over. Steve's understated and no-nonsense approach gave me assurance that I was being taken care of in the most professional manner. I would recommend Albion to anyone without reservation and would use them again!
