We hired Simply Moving on very short notice to move our gym equipment and some furniture to our other house 95 miles away. It was a job that involved some "heavy lifting." Walter, Washington, Salvador, Norberto and Frank were all great. They were very careful and very pleasant to work with. We have nothing but good things to say.
Very friendly movers, couldn't get our couch out but not for lack of trying! Professional and efficient, they carried a lot of heavy stuff up 4 flights of stairs late into the night. In an industry where mover nightmares are common, these guys stand apart.
I hired these guys for a job that involved very heavy lifting which also required going up and down the stairs nonstop. It was very tough work and the guys did the job with gusto! They were quick, super hard working, and had such a great attitude. I highly recommend them.
Sam and crew Sasha and Daniyar were super to deal with! They carried loads of heavy furniture upstairs. It was a lot of work and they were professional.
I made an excellent move from Bronx to Staten Island a month ago. We were schedule for 8 am for minimum 3 hours. They arrived with a truck on time and they were ready to roll. I already packed my stuff into boxes they just needed to wrap the furniture items. They loaded up the truck and we were off to our new building. Our new apartment is on 3rd floor with no lift or elevator. Each time movers had to take stairs, lifting some heavy items too but they never complained and didn't take a single break until we were all done. They are efficient and hardworking i couldn't ask for more.
They're the only moving company I've worked with so I have no frame of reference for work quality, but nothing was dinged or broken so that was good. I'm really glad that I hired them and it was worth it not to be the one doing the heavy lifting.
Wonderful humans who took great care of us and our belongings. Every aspect of moving from searching to setting up is already a lot. Having such competent, dependable, personable help at this stage of heavy lifting is a true lifesaver. Thanks guys!!
Very accomodating and patient. Squeezed me in to his schedule on short notice for a project I needed done on a certain day. Strategically worked to figure out solutions for navigating my very large, bulky and heavy items around narrow corners and stairwells. Very professional and thorough. Would absolutely hire again for my heavy lifting and moving needs.
I had two pieces of furniture assembled yesterday and they showed up on time, did an awesome job and went over and above to assist me with moving my things, as at 8 and a half months pregnant I can't do any heavy lifting. Amazing! And I probably will use them again.
Booked Bertie and 1 other guy on short notice to help move a heavy sleeper sofa from 2 miles away. He was very accommodating to my time frame. Unfortunately, once we got the couch to my apartment, Bertie's employee just flat out said "I can't do it" and quit. Having no choice, I had to step in and take over. Paid for 2 guys and got 1. The other guy still helped a bit guiding around corners, but Bertie and I did the heavy lifting. Pretty disappointing, but not totally Berties fault (although I did provide him with the weight of the couch before he accepted the job). But for what it's worth, Bertie himself did a fantastic job. He worked really hard, especially after his guy quit. I'd recommend him and hire him again but insist he choose his partner carefully.
Jeff and his partner did a great job moving my storage unit to my new home. The were both pleasant to deal with, stayed in touch before the move and arrived on-time. They got started on the work right away and we got it loaded in short order. Everything was put in his truck which has a lift-gate for the heavy stuff. After we got to my house they were very careful to ensure they did not damage the furniture or my walls going up the stair well - good job guys! Thanks, Eric
These guys are excellent, used them 2 times now and never let me down. I moved from NYC apartment to house in South Jersey and it was smooth and painless, they took care of all the heavy lifting and wrapping of our oversize furniture Carlos and his team know what to do and how to do it properly, thanks to them again ..!
Ron was great to work with. We were delayed due to traffic but he patiently waited for us and was great at communicating. Once we arrived he and his partner unloaded everything quickly and efficiently. Great deal for some solid heavy lifting help!
I highly recommend 1st Moving. Not only were their prices competitive, but the service was outstanding. Vlad was always accessible by email/text, they were spot on with their timing estimates PLUS the only mover who gave reasonable time frames. They would pick my furniture up in 2-3 days and deliver it next day. Used many shipping contractors in past, this was my best experience. DO NOT HESITATE TO USE 1st Moving !!! Nata
The guys were great! They had some heavy pieces to work with and kept moving for the entire project. They were pleasant and respectful. I would definitely use them again and would recommend them to anyone who needs assistance with moving. Thanks again guys!
Willie was great! Although he was stuck in traffic on his way to my apartment, he communicated about his delay and did not keep me waiting. Because our elevator was broken, he had to lug everything down by himself -- and did a fantastic job. Willie also helped me move everything into my new place. He seemed unfazed by all my furniture and offered to lift anything heavy. Highly recommend.
The best!!! These guys were so friendly, fast and professional! I'd only recommend and use heavy lifting movers. Thanks again Joe!
Darrio called me as soon as I posted an ad indicating I needed help with heavy lifting and assembling of a furniture piece and moving some heavy furniture in my apartment. He asked when I needed the job done and arranged to come at the time I requested. He and a coworker arrived on time and did the work perfectly. They actually noticed a chair needed repair and repaired it. He and his coworker were very nice and polite and the price was quite reasonable. I would definitely use his services again to help with repairs, heavy lifting or moving of objects again.
We really needed a crane to lift an extremely heavy marble table top up three flights of stairs. Instead we booked Ahmad and his partner. They were unfazed by the weight, and lifted, pushed, tilted and twisted the four hundred pound crate up our staircase. If you're looking for someone responsive, super-human strong, committed to the task and unfazed by a challenge: would highly recommend. Six stars!
Just had Accurate Moving move us! Really fast, SO careful with the furniture, meticulous and super friendly. Even as I asked dumb questions about the army and kvetched about having too much shit, they politely listened and replied all the while carrying insanely heavy stuff. And did I mention they can take a whole wardrobe box per one guy!!! Miracle workers. I would almost move again just to hire them.
