Move It by Bike – Review Tim and his crew arrived punctually at the scheduled time, which was early in the day since I wanted to avoid the afternoon summer heat. Of all the bids I received, this was the earliest start time I was offered and a big point in Tim’s favor. Everyone was friendly and ready to work. They were great at loading their own stackable plastic bins, which were brought to me well in advance without an extra charge. Tim made two trips before the move to bring me a total of 20 bins. Packing them was easier and faster than filling cardboard boxes since they’re sturdier and lock in place when stacked. No messing with all that tape either. However, they were quite dirty and tiny roaches were crawling on some of them. They could use a good power-wash. Tim did not give me a deadline for returning the plastic containers, which was really helpful after many days of packing and a stressful and tiring day of moving. I unpacked and returned the bins within 4 days anyway, which is faster than I would’ve unpacked my own cardboard boxes. The main reason was to help Tim in case he had another customer, but the roaches also motivated me. I was impressed by Tim’s concern for his crew – belts and straps to help carry the heavy stuff, plus verbal pointers on how to lift. Concern for furniture was not as good. Two fabric chairs were loaded without being wrapped so one of them received a stain I suspect is permanent, probably oil based. Also, wood shelves were loaded without any attempt to prevent scratches. Before the job, Tim walked through my apartment and came up with an estimate and commented that it was probably too high. In fact, he estimated 4 hours and it took 5. This is probably due to inexperience. I expect he’ll get better at calculating the various factors – how much stuff is there, how far away is the move, how much fits in each wagon, how fast or slow his crew works. He even forgot that there were stairs at my new place, and that’s a major time factor in any move. Nevertheless, the final cost was less than any of the truck movers that bid on my move since their hourly rates are much higher. They will no doubt move you faster, but the total price will still be more than Tim’s. The biggest disappointment was Tim’s handling of damage to my TV cabinet. The piece is about 5 ½ feet tall and stands on legs that are 18 inches. He watched his crew trying to carry the cabinet up a flight of stairs UPRIGHT. On the second step, the crew said they were having problems lifting the legs over each step. Clearly, the cabinet should have been on its BACK. The end result was a broken leg. In addition, I have since discovered deep scratches on each side of the cabinet from the lifting straps, which aren’t padded to prevent that sort of thing and which would have been on the back side of the cabinet if carried up properly. Tim’s reaction to the broken cabinet leg was to imply that the piece was already broken and/or that I should have warned him that it was in poor condition to begin with. These are issues that only experience will improve. The best position to carry the cabinet should have been discussed beforehand. And despite my attempts to be tactful by saying the piece was cheap, Tim should have taken responsibility for the broken leg which was not broken at the beginning of the trip since it was standing perfectly fine when they took it out of the old apartment. Taking ownership for the breakage and offering a small discount would have gone a long way, although four days later he did offer to locate a replacement part. In the end, I’m glad I used Move it by Bike for my most recent move and I’d hire Tim again. It’s a new business and he still has many things to learn and improvements to make. But the concept is good in so many ways! Eco-friendly. A small, local enterprise. Innovative. Creative. As fun as working your butt off can be. And funky in a N’Awlins sort of way. I’m pleased that I had the chance to help this new business in its early stages. Best of luck to Tim and Move It by Bike!
Easiest move ever. Great customer service. Movers were on time and professional from the first phone call all the way to delivery. We will definitely recommend them to all of our friends.
I would highly recommend Boostco Moving. I hired them to move from an apartment into 2 storage pods. Michael was in contact with me multiple times prior to moving day to determine how many movers I would need and the time required. Due to unforeseen circumstances, the job before mine ran longer than expected, however Michael called to keep me updated on the progress and when the movers would be there. The movers packed the pods very well to make sure nothing would shift during transportation.
I would use Tres movers again. When looking for movers Mario was the first mover to contact me and I’m glad that I choose them, This is one company that I would recommend to all my family and friends. Once again guys thanks for excellent service.
The movers were a little late, but called in advanced to let me know. They kept me updated every step of the way. When they moved me I understood why they were late (bc they took there time with my precious furniture and made sure not damage anything ) . Very professional. If I need movers in the future, I will use them.
AD Movers did everything they could to assist me in a very difficult move. They adjusted the move time when I wasn't ready, moved everything carefully and efficiently, and allowed us use of their dollies for items we moved ourselves in cars while they moved the heavy furniture. The movers were polite, helpful, and friendly. The office was quick to respond and their price was a bit under other movers. 👍
Performed task as promised, good price, friendly movers. One star off because they were 2 hours late.
I was asking for help moving equipment out of an event, so it was a tight schedule and an unusual ask for a moving company. Gino and his team were easy to plan with, and great to work with!
The guys arrived (on time) introduced themselves and got straight to work. If your looking for a local family owned business call MGM Movers it was a pleasure working with Mario & Mario jr.⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
TOTALLY WORTH THE MONEY!!! I shopped around for weeks, and, yes, Marshall costs more than some movers, but it was totally worth it! NO surprise fees! Exactly what they quoted me! Plus they showed up 15 minutes early (most movers show up hours later than they are scheduled to) and they completed the move in less time than they originally predicted. They worked carefully but constantly and efficiently. They had all the tools they needed to carry, cover, protect, and tie down my furniture. Nothing was damaged or even scratched. The guys who came were very polite and even offered to help me move other items when they were done. AND I moved from a 3rd floor apartment into a 2nd floor and they didn't charge extra for stairs like most companies do! I am VERY pleased with the outcome!
Great company. Great service. Great price. What else you need from any movers company? I hired Outside the Box movers for moving and packing of both my office and house thingies as we were moving from Atlanta to East Hampton NY. My daughter moved with them last year and suggested me to go with them. She was quite happy with her moving experience also from Atlanta to Astoria Queens. I compared their quotes and although it was not the lowest I spoke to Ty. After speaking to him and listening to the guarantees and his expertise I chose them. They were there at my place as promised at 8AM. They even had 50 packing boxes as this was a fairly short notice move. They also had 50 boxes sent to me thus I saved a bunch on packing service since I did most of it myself. Price was very reasonable at 4850 for a 3 bedroom move. They came with 5 men with a truck on Sunday! I am eternally thankful for delivering 50 boxes for free to me. This saved me at least 300$ in moving service time. I packed all smaller things and it added up to like 35 boxes. They loaded me within 6 hours. I liked the fact that the manager guy Ty actually offered me this to save money. First time I hear of a company that actually thinks of a customer first - not profit! I also asked movers to deliver a small furniture item from Atlanta to my office in Brooklyn. This company is bookmarked in my phone and I will call them if I need any more help! Thank you!
Chris did an awesome job mounting my very heavy TV and at a fair price. I highly recommend him and would hire him again.
Great group of guys, best experience I've had with moving
Moved entire house about 30 miles. Work was done professionally and quickly. Would definitely use this company again if I move in the future.
