How does your service stand out?

Client Testimonials . I moved from Virginia to NW about 2 weeks ago. I contracted BR Movers after they provided the lowest all inclusive hourly rate. I didn't want any surprises or some materials bill that was 15 times my estimate, so I went with them because they clearly stated that all materials were included in the $99 per hour. The move was sooooo easy. I will never move myself again. I did my clothes ahead of time but the movers packed everything else for me. The rate per hour did not change, but I did use 1 1/2 hours extra - but that's alright. The extra time was worth it, as not one of my pieces of furniture was damaged and all my items were packed for me. So worth it. Good job BR Movers! I will be sending friends your way! Posted by — Corbin . . My move was done by BR Movers. I was pleasantly surprised by all aspects of my relocation. The customer service/reservation rep was extremely knowledgeable and prepared. She didn't pressure me or call 8 times a day so I was way more inclined to use her company (BR Movers). I scheduled the move (no deposit was requested) and the movers arrived on time. The 3 man crew was very helpful. They reviewed everything with me before actually moving the furniture. Aka - no surprises. The cost was what was quoted - and moving blankets were included. I did purchase a wardrobe box - and that really fit all my extras. The items were stored for 6 days for free and then delivered. I just opened my last box and there was no damage. Very good movers - prepared and polite. Posted by — Liz Weir . . I was recently offered an outstanding position in New York - thus I needed to move fast. I was not so concerned with arrival time but really with getting the items out of my old apartment in the District. BR Movers contacted me with a quote (1 of 50 different movers who called). My rep was very nice and informed me of the price. They were able to pick up the items exactly when I wanted - that and the price made up my mind. The movers packed my items very well - I wasn't as prepared as I would have liked to be so thank goodness they brought materials. I received the items after 8 days (1 day after my new lease began). Everything was very well handled. Professional and efficient. Posted by — Dhaved Bestone . . I would use BR Movers all over again. They did a great job - all packing included, no hidden charges. This was all I wanted - and they did just that. I hear alot of negative stories about moving but it seems to me these people didn't use BR Movers. Or maybe they decided to fib about what they needed - but thanks to my utter honesty, the rep advised me to go with packing services. How right - how right. It was great. No pain - just relocation. Thanks guys! Wish you were everywhere in case I need you again! Posted by — Julia "Cizzy" Colton . . I used BR Movers recently and was pleasantly surprised. I am glad I didn't listen to the fake review I saw on this site (they are just copied and pasted by some vengeful person, I mean come on, Eastern European Crime Syndicate? That is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard, they have a DOT Number and a Motor Carrier Number). But more to the point, I moved from coast to coast and everything went really well! I got the Full Service Packing option which included all the materials and since I gave them a list ahead of time nothing changed on the move day. The items got there in 13 days and everything is in perfect shape! I wish I had reserved with them sooner and saved myself the hassle of dealing with all these phone calls. BR Movers is the best of the best. Highly recommended! Posted by — Kayla Wilkes . . Good moving company. They were about 25 minutes late, but they let me know of the delay, which I can appreciate. Moved my furniture very carefully and took care to keep my floor clean as well. Also much appreciated. The movers communicated details very well before we started moving furniture. I enjoyed speaking with the people in their reservations department and will use this company again for my next move. Thank you. Posted by — Ruth Ann Slattery .

    I'm very pleased with the service from Br Movers, These guys walked me through the whole process answered all questions I had. They told me all the charges up front how long it would take. Basically took good care of me. The move was completely stress free! It was also awesome that I was able to book them kind of last minute (about 2 days before I was going to move). THANK YOU!!

  • Kerr D. Dec 17, 2014
    We had to move before the holiday and Br Movers were supper nice and helpfull. They were very careful with our furniture. They padded and shrink wrapped all of my furniture, and used dollies and lifting straps I have never seen They even saw that I was short a few boxes and provided me with some extras that they had in their truck. Im more than satisfied with their work and recommend them to everyone. Thank you, happy holiday.

    These movers were simply amazing, I got a chance to finally recommend a moving company. I moved a lot because of the nature of my employment, used many companies and complained every time. But today I am recommending a moving company BR Movers . We looked in the trucks and everything was protected and wrapped as it was when they took them away. They remembered how to assemble everything, they had all the parts and nothing was lost. Also all the men were incredibly polite and helpful.
  • Kerr L. Dec 8, 2014
    took great care in packing and moving my things. They were very professional, pleasant to work with and put in that extra effort to get my furniture in place upon delivery, which required in some cases very difficult maneuvering. I would not hesitate to recommend
  • Marina K. Dec 8, 2014
    They were on time, thoughtful, careful, and wouldn't let me do anything...;) They handled all the furniture and boxes with care. and we were out of my place with in 4 hours. The price is reasonable and the service and performance is perfect. I already told few of my friends about this company and they will use them for their future move.

  • Marlin K. Nov 24, 2014
    I had to move some furniture from my apartment in MD to my small mountain house upstate DC. The company helped me do it and it was done really fast – three days only. they arrived when they said they would at delivery. I paid less then expected at delivery. movers really took their time unloading and putting my things where they belonged. they did a great job!

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Moving Tips We recommend that you use this checklist to make your moving experience more pleasant. 2 Weeks Prior to Moving Plan your trip to your new destination. Make travel accommodations, and if you are planning to drive, have your car serviced. Discontinue regular services such as newspaper, trash pickup, lawn services, etc. Return borrowed things and collect things you have loaned. Make arrangements for servicing your appliances both at your current home and your new home. BR Movers will happily assist you with arranging these third party services. Dispose of flammables such as gasoline, matches, cleaning fluids, bleach, pressurized or aerosol cans, and ammunition. If you are planning on moving your TV antenna, make arrangements to have it taken down. BR Movers will happily assist you with arranging these third party services. If you're shipping an automobile, plan to have the gasoline tank less than halfway full and make sure there is sufficient antifreeze and oil. 1 Week Prior to Moving Arrange for payment to your BR Movers driver at destination, unless your move is to be billed to your employer or has previous credit approval. Payment by cash, certified check, or money order is required before unloading. Determine which items you are taking with you. Pack these items and set aside in a designated area. BR Movers will happily assist you with packing. Refer to our rates under “Packing.” Arrange for proper packing materials such as boxes and tape. Refer to our list of products under Packing. Have rugs and draperies cleaned. Keep in protective bags. Drain the fuel from lawnmowers and other power equipment. Make arrangements to discontinue your local telephone service. Your local telephone company can help you establish phone service at your new home. Use up your frozen food supply, give it to a neighbor, or donate it to a food bank. 1 Day Prior to Moving Pack a box of things you'll need as soon as you arrive at your new home. This might include non-aerosol cleaning supplies, disposable plates and cups, illumination tools, snacks, bathroom items and trash bags. Take this box with you or have the driver load it last and unload first. Make sure all packing services have been performed before you sign for them. Moving Out Day Be available when the driver arrives and throughout the loading process. If you won't be there, make arrangements for someone else to be there and direct the movers. Make sure the driver has the name and phone number of that person. Accompany the driver during the process of taking inventory. Check on the condition of your goods as they are loaded. Make a final tour of your home. Make sure that no items are left behind. Sign the bill of lading and make sure your new address and phone number are correct. Moving In Day Arrive at your home a day ahead of time, if possible, to make sure utilities are connected and plan the placement of major items in your new home. Be ready to pay the driver with cash, traveler's check, certified check, or money order prior to unloading.
