I highly recommend Eko Movers as a local moving service in the Dayton Metro! We found them through Thumbtack, and were immediately impressed with how easy it was to stay in contact with them, as they answer emails incredibly fast! Though their estimate was the second highest of five estimates we received, theirs and one other were the only ones who offered a guaranteed flat rate that wouldn't change as the move progressed. To us, that was worth it's weight in gold, as we could not afford to not know how much the move would cost ahead of time! On this basis, along with the fact that they were flexible on days and ok with last minute changes if they happened, we hired them feeling confident we had made a smart choice. We also liked their focus on environmental care, and enjoyed hearing how they plant a tree for every completed move! Their movers do not smoke on the job, which I really appreciated as someone with sensitivities to smoke. They arrived the day of the move severely understaffed for reasons I believe to be out of their control, and due to this, the move ended up going quite late both days. The real mark of a great business though, is not that they do not make mistakes (we're ALL human after all!) but how they react to mistakes. That really says a lot about a person, a business, you name it. Eko Movers somehow kept finding more movers to bring out as the day went on, both days, and the same thing with trucks. One by one, more showed up. The most impressive thing was that they kept on working and working, tirelessly, until the wee hours of the night to get the job done on time! I was thankful for that, very very thankful, as I had to clean the house we were moving out of the next days, and needed that time to be there. If I had any constructive criticism to give, I would say that some boxes (only a few really, it was from one particular closet) containing delicate things were not quite packed the way I would have wanted them packed (lacked separation and padding) however, the only thing that was broken in my whole move was a picnic basket that wasn't protected in the truck completely unrelated. They got the job done right, their way, and nothing else was damaged except for a little gash in my front door of the new house. They offered to fix the front door gash and replace the picnic basket, no hassle at all. I haven't taken them up on it, I hardly notice it. It's really small beans compared to all the other moves we've completed in the last decade where huge amounts of things were broken everywhere! The last thing I will add, is that going into this I did not realize that it was customary to provide a tip of about $20 per person, per day. With the multitude of packers/movers being brought in all throughout the day up to the last minutes both days, it made it really expensive and confusing to figure out how to tip everyone, necessitating runs back and forth to the atm for more money as more people would show up unexpectedly. It was hard to decide if tipping one person $20 for working all day and another the same for showing up in the last moments was fair or the right way to do it, but in the end we opted to just treat everyone fully and equal, to make sure they all felt valued and appreciated. We wished we would have known ahead of time how many people were coming, and what we should give them to take proper care of them! It was one of those things that we had to really think out, having never done this before, in the middle of a stressful busy time, but we are glad we did. We also ended up buying them lunch (second day only) and providing drinks and snacks both days. I fear they would have starved had we not! They certainly deserved it, they worked their tails off and were very, very polite! Just adding that to prospective clients, so if you were like me and didn't know, you know now and can plan for it better than we did. :) It's a hard job to do, after all! You've got to take good care of them! They are moving your life, after all. It's a precious relationship, if you think about it. I would not hesitate to use EkoMovers again. They got the job done at a predictable price we could afford and virtually no damage except for the afore mentioned. No surprises in the final bill minus the gratuity thing which easily ran a couple hundred more but was well earned and freely given. The only thing I'd love now is a copy of our contract and receipt since they didn't have one on hand for us when they came out. I wasn't sure if they would mail it or if I had to request it. I'll go ahead and request it in the coming days. They were so accommodating, if I had mentioned that I really needed it the last day of work, they would have found a way to get it to me I'm sure. They really took awesome care of us, in every way possible. In conclusion, I think Eko Movers is a spectacular company with a lot of heart. They'll get the job done, and make it right, come what may! If that isn't worth your business, I don't know what else is. I cannot think of another company I would trust more with a move. I give them my highest recommendation. Thanks Eko Movers!
Hired two movers to load a 3rd floor apartment into a uHaul. Very efficient and easy to work with.
Gary is A-1 professional! He and Antonio took extreme care of moving my one bedroom apartment as if it were their own. I've used other local movers but Gary's company is top-notch. The whole project took a total of two hours. Amazing. I only say this because moving in and out from one place to another is very stressful: you are happy to leave the one and nervous to get settled into the other - hoping everything goes smoothie. Not only did it go big time swiftly, it all went without a hitch. And, Gary and Antonio placed items, boxes and furnishings in the appropriate rooms - such a huge courtesy! If you find a need to move, my recommendation is first, and without hesitation: Gary Gilliam-Beale's H.E.L.P.! Moving and Storage.
It was a long day and we were moved into our destination by Saturday evening. A lot of work for these movers.
Everything about my Muve experience was spectacular. I couldn't have asked for a smoother move of my new sofa. The hours were absolutely perfect they were right on time both men were extremely personable, courteous and professional. I would be happy to recommend them to my friends and family. And from now on Muve will be the Only movers I ever call for my next move!
They were thr best and easiest company to work with! The movers themselves were awesome and so quick and efficient. I love how nice they were and how much patience they had with me on my first move by myself :) definitely a note worthy company and i will be recommending them to anyone I know who has to move.
The hourly rate was competitive with other local moving companies. The movers arrived on time, handled my belongings with care, and they efficiently moved my items up 3 flights of stairs. I would certainly recommend them again.
We booked DSL less than 24 hours before our move. They worked with us to make sure we had the correct number of movers for the correct amount of time for an amazing price! They even were willing to work with us on payment when the move took longer and cost more than anticipated. We were moving from a 4th floor walk-up, 2 bedroom apartment and putting all of our stuff into storage for just a few months. We will most definitely be hiring them again once we find our new home. And I will be telling everyone I know about them. And the guys who did our move were wonderful. They moved quickly, despite the stairs and odd layout. They thought about how they were going to proceed before they started moving anything. And they got our giant, awkward sectional out faster than the furniture company we bought it from could get it in. Amazing service. I can't recommend them highly enough!
We never hesitate to work with Veritas. By far the best movers we use.
There is so much I can say about this company, so I will start off with "Thank you for making my BIG move even possible!" Working with Krystal and the moving crew was such a delightful experience! If I had a question, it was answered almost immediately, and no hidden "extra" costs that I have found in the past other moving companies! All my items were so carefully wrapped and packed, I was extremely impressed that nothing was broke, or misplaced, or any other thing that can go wrong when taking a chance on a moving company! And during the actual move, all my items where in order and best of all on time! With such a busy life schedule, kids, job... this was the best and most smart move on my part! And if I ever move again I will be calling this company! I would definitely rate this company with a 5 thumbs up! Thank you to all the crew members and especially Krystal for making my move possible! I couldn't have done it with out you... Thanks again!
Very experienced movers, handled items with care. I only wanted help with a few items and they were very accommodating. Family owned business, I would book again if I were moving.
Very professional & efficient. Would recommend for anyone looking to get things moved in timely manor with care.
These movers were very affordable and the gentleman that did the actual move were professional and very good! The only reason I didn’t give a five star rating was they didn’t send a big enough truck and then tried to charge us extra gas and mileage for having to make a second trip. In the end, they did right by us and waived the extra cost due to their error with the truck size. I did find it unprofessional that the owner stated more than once that she lost money on our move, which was not our fault. They are a new, family owned company and I’m confident that they will learn from this job and send trucks that are larger than what they anticipate needing in the future. All in all, we were very pleased with this company, especially with the gentleman who did the moving of our furniture and boxes. Great job!
