So grateful for Tim and his hard work and kind personality. He responded quickly, was available almost immediately, showed up on time, worked efficiently and was a pleasure to chat with. Will hire him again!

Tim was very polite and punctual. Even before the appointment, his communication was stellar. He even came a day earlier when my furniture arrived faster than scheduled. He was very efficient and put together my bed frame, dresser, and nightstand very quickly. I will definitely recommend him to everyone I know and will use him again!

Tim arrived on time (actually a few minutes early!) and was ready to get to work. In his response to my initial request, he actually had the foresight to ask if I had links to the furniture I wanted assembled so that he could be prepared with requisite tools - and prepared he was. He was pleasant, finished in a timely manner, and even helped to clear boxes and packaging for us. I would [will] request his support for any future help, and have, as well, already referred him to someone else.

Hi! First, I need to let you know that I am a nuisance to work for. However, Tim ( the owner and manager) handled all my inquiries and requests with grace. His crew Jamail and Mike were fabulous. They were a bit late, but my time did not start until they arrived. Once there, they made quick work of the job and were kind and a pleasure to work with ( as was Tim.) The only reason this review is missing a star is that I did not end up using their bike and trailer for the move due to rain- so I can not speak to that part of the experience. I do LOVE that this is a green alternate for moving. It’s quite a creative and feasible concept. The price turned out to be the same as others quoted to me, BUT ONLY because I chose to rent a U- Haul. They do offer a back up rain day when you schedule. I unfortunately had waited until the last week- and it was raining all that Week. I’d recommend Move It! by Bike for a greener and less expensive move. The staff can’t be beat!

Details: Just a few things • Less than 5 miles • Load flat; no stairs or elevator • Unload via stairs

MoveIt did a dresser, desk, and bed frame for me and they’re all amazing! It did take the entire day (8 hrs) but if you’re not in any sort of time crunch I would 100% recommend. Super nice guy & got everything done perfectly. Thank you!!!

Thank you Lauren, Sorry it took so long. The dresser was partly assembled but was done so incorrectly. I had to disassemble most of it and reassemble it. Maybe I should have communicated that to you. Anyway all your pieces are assembled correctly now. Have a successful semester. Tim Colglazier- MOVE IT! by bike

FAQs

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I was moving from the French Quarter and did not own a car. I got around on a bicycle so decided to move using my bike. I found a large trailer made by Bikes At Work and ordered one. My intention was to use the trailer then store it to use if I needed to move again. During my move many people asked about what I was doing and wanted my number so I could help them move sometime. Sensing a demand I started MOVE IT! by bike.

  • Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?

    We moved a client out of the French Quarter to the CBD. Her old place was on the second floor down twisting narrow stairs. Her new place was on the fourth floor up some long steps but no elevator. We had to lower a couch over the balcony to get it out. Six movers were employed for this job. Two at the moving out location to pack and move things out to the street and help load the trailers. Two to pull the trailers with a bicycle from the moving out location to the moving in location and then back to do it again. And two to help unload the trailers and bring everything up to the moving in place. MOVE IT! by bike completed this job in less time than predicted and under budget.
