    1. Earnest readily accommodated me when I moved the set date of assembly 1 week early. 2. He and his team assembled my bed, sleeper sofa, and dining set for ~1.5-2 hours. He helped me save a lot of time! Had a very pleasant experience with Earnest. Recommending him to all of you furniture assembly hunters out there!

    I was in Ikea hell trying to put together stuff and just googled ikea assembly and found Earnest through Thumbtack. That was at 3:30pm. At 5:30pm Earnest was in my apartment putting together around 10 pieces of furniture. He was totally affordable and a joy to talk to. He's professional and kind. I literally took a nap at one point and told him to wake me if he needed me. I'm sending his number to all of my friends. Such a deal, he's quick, he's kind, and he goes over and beyond. He put together a couple things that I had forgotten to list in the request. I wish I could give more than five stars tbh. Thank you Earnest!!!

    Earnest did a great job at installing my swing set. Even though it was raining he still made sure the project was complete to my liking without rescheduling. He was very professional and worked at a very fast paced. I will highly recommend him to do the job. My swing set consisted of two swings, a tree house, rock climbing wall, monkey bars, and a slide. Great job and thanks again the kids are enjoying the set.

    Contacted Earnest to assist setting up a basketball hoop. He showed up promptly at the agreed upon time and was quickly able to put the pieces together that I struggled to complete myself. His experience building things payed off because the instructions were less than clear and he was able to leverage past experience to complete. The hoop came with missing pieces and we will have order replacement parts so Earnest was able to complete what he could and will come back when the parts come in--something he offered without being asked. Will definitely use him again for other items.

    Earnest helped us out with assembling the bed from IKEA. We needed it done over the weekend right after it is delivered & I couldn't have been happier with his professionalism. He brought help and they were so courteous & friendly. One of the pieces was broken & another was incompatible but they went the extra mile & took care of all of it. Thanks Earnest!

    I’m a new resident in the state of Virginia and was very weary and skeptical of contacting someone online to do business with. However, I decided to try thumbtack and I was pleasantly surprised to meet Mr. Ernest Atkins and the company he represent Move U Inc. After reading various reviews regarding his service, I decided to contact him and schedule assembly for my furniture, which included seven pieces for two separate bedrooms. From the very beginning Mr. Atkins was courteous and professional and understanding. He was extremely personable and made me feel at ease instantly. Upon scheduling the pickup of my furniture at the store, Mr. Atkins provided me a courtesy call and was prompt to pick up my furniture. In addition, he brought along another employee to help with the assembly. Despite the condition, which there was a snow storm that very day, Mr. Atkins never complained or asked to reschedule. Even when there was a major complication, some of the pieces were not correct; Mr. Atkins volunteered to come back on another day once I got the proper pieces without charging an additional fee. He came the following day and was able to assemble the missing pieces within an hour. Mr. Atkins was quick in assembling the pieces to perfection and I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a professional company that truly cares about the satisfaction of their customer to assemble/move your furniture.

    The service we got from Earnest is the type you don't think you will ever find in our day and age. We had to assemble 6 dining room chairs. By Sunday evening my husband had despaired of putting them together himself and, let's say, the evening did not look promising. We contacted Earnest, out of 5-6 other proposals we got. He came to our home that very evening--remember it was Sunday-within an hour or so of our phone call. The chairs were difficult to assemble He showed patience, perseverance and resourcefulness. At one point he found that the factory has sent the wrong screw--too long. Instead of telling us that he would come back only if we located the right screw, he spent a long time figuring out ways he could shorten it. Making do with the tools on hand, he managed to find a way to shorten the screw and complete the job impeccably. We were extremely impressed by his unparalleled work ethic, dedication to customers and positive attitude. It is easy to see that he loves his work and is highly motivated by the goal of solving customers' problems. We were so impressed that we will seriously consider his moving services once we sell our house. He is a reliable, dedicated, honest, skillful and highly professional person.

    Earnest was awesome! Ikea sent along an additional order from some other customer and really could have made this a difficult install - Earnest figured it out quickly. He put together 2 pretty complicated pieces (a large credenza and a large 3 tiered storage unit) quickly and efficiently. He is a true professional and totally worth it if you bought some Ikea stuff and want it put together quickly and professionally. From his perfectly spotless uniform to the booties he placed on his shoes - Earnest is the man..
