Browse these out of state moving with great ratings from Thumbtack customers in Philadelphia.
Adelphia offered the lowest rate of anyone I contacted and had great availability for my out-of-state move. The flat rate with no fees whatsoever is incredible. They're a small company, so don't expect a fancy website or professional customer service. They just do the basics, but that was good enough for me. Don't use them if you're in a rush. They are often late, sometimes by hours, and either don't call or call way later than one would reasonably expect. Communication between boss and workers isn't always the best, but nothing too serious went wrong. The movers themselves worked hard and did a good job, though their technique wasn't as safe as it could have been, and without a bit of supervision, smaller items may fall off or get lost. If you expect the best you'll be disappointed, but if you understand you get what you pay for, you can save a ton without anything too bad going wrong.
Alert: I almost never do reviews and it is because they tend to run very long - you have been warned! I found On-Demand Moving (ODM) through Thumbtack. I had to find a mover for my college student in Philadelphia. She and her new roommate were moving from two furnished apartments to another one within a mile (mostly boxes). Did I mention that I live in Houston? I needed to find a reliable, reasonably priced mover that would do what I was too far away help do. Lanre responded quickly and was very good with follow-up communication answering phone calls and emails quickly. I chose ODM, who was not my cheapest quote, because Lanre could explain that more movers (3 instead of 2) were needed due to parking regulations in Philadelphia and what the cost of parking tickets were ($120!). The reviews I read also noted the care this company took with clients belongings with some even complaining about the move taking longer because of it. I would rather pay a bit more up front than deal with damaged walls and belongings afterwards insurance claims and loss of deposits. Saving money and hassle in the long run are well worth the slightly higher cost of hiring a professional company to me. Once I got a quote and signed the contact I had to hand off the dealings to my daughter and hope for the best. She was concerned because she had a narrow window due to the assigned times from the apartment complex, had no car of her own, very limited help from friends/family and had never dealt with movers before. My daughter was fairly stressed about the move the night before because she had poor choices if ODM did not show up. She had also injured her foot so was less able to move herself adding to her stress level. On-Demand Moving showed up in the window promised. Lanre brought 3 movers and was there to supervise the move. This greatly eased my daughters stress. They took everything and then some, including some items we thought my daughter would have to take herself for safety reasons. There was no damage. They ended up taking longer than the original estimate but this was due to: The care they took with all the belongings The two apartment pick-up required moving the truck. The lack of cooperation of the complex with respect to access within the building. Poor parking options due to location of the pick-up apartment and the especially the construction still underway at the drop off location requiring a longer trip from truck to door than any of us expected. In the end On-Demand Moving showed up on time and moved everything without damage. They took longer than expected but for several reasons beyond their control and that we were unable to give information about in the initial quote. They treated my daughter with respect and made a stressful day turn out wonderfully. I agree that you get what you pay for and ODM charged a reasonable price for great service. We felt that ODM has a do it right the first time attitude. I would use them again without reservation.
Move into 1 bedroom apt. Men were on time, eager to please, courteous and finished way ahead of schedule. Owner/s scheduler was so easy to work with my out of state move. Highly recommend to anyone.
Great local moving company that I highly recommend. Good service and fair prices.
We can’t say enough good things about Donte and Don and the work they did for our move last weekend. We weren’t as prepared as we wanted to be...and they handled it with such generosity and grace. They worked hard and kept us on track. It was clear to me that they weren’t interested in going slow and racking up fees. At the same time, they weren’t rushing us and we felt like they were there to help as long as we needed on moving day. We have never worked with anyone more polite, respectful, and hard-working. HIGHLY recommended.
We were moving from a one bedroom apartment, but had some extra furniture in the basement storage. Dave arrived with two movers and they moved quickly and efficiently. We were very pleased with their service.
My experience with John Carson Relocation was related to a long distance (1000 miles) move of household goods, tools, and yard equipment. Mr. Carson is a friendly and straight forward person. He was always on time, and kept in contact with me throughout the planning, loading, and moving so there were no surprises or worries about the timing of activities. He has integrity with regard to taking care of his customers' goods and their property. In the case where some damage did occur, he was quick to acknowledge it and 100% willing to make things right. He also went the "extra mile" to mail a piece of hardware that, unknown to everyone (including me) at the time of unloading, came off a furniture item and ended up going back to Pennsylvania on the truck. My only criticism of the move would be that I believe more care could have been applied to the moving of large furniture pieces (especially a piano). This includes the physical moving from the house to the truck and the blanketing of the items prior to removal from the house. John was short-handed during the pick-up and unloading due to some people having the flu. Not having enough help made the job more difficult and made protection of the furniture less than it should have been. That said, with roughly 45 moving boxes of items shipped along with the furniture pieces, all the boxed items arrived in good shape with no blemishes or damage of any kind.
Vlad ( 1st Moving ) was just an answered prayer! I cannot thank him enough for decreasing my stress about a thousand percent! I originally had scheduled my move the previous week, with another moving company not on Thumbtack, and when moving day came, they didn't show up (after taking my $500 deposit!) and I was unable to reach them...still haven't in fact. So when I got on Thumtack at the recommendation of a friend, I had no idea what to expect, I had a very tight deadline to get my things out of my home, and I was (& still am) having to deal with the bank to try and get my deposit back from the other company--I was so stressed I was beside myself. Once I read Vlad's reviews & got his very reasonable bid and booked him, we spoke on the phone & IMMEDIATELY, I felt better. He couldn't be nicer or more accommodating. And the move went great, even though I was only able to be present at the loading end. My family, at the unloading also remarked on what a great guy he was...we're all still talking about it! I heard a lot of horror stories about movers, and clearly, I had a horror story of my own too, but from here on out, I won't be moving unless 1st Moving can move me....seriously, they are that special.
I was looking to have movers help me move in such a short notice (less than 24hrs). Ace kindly helped me with no rush charge or other contingency fees. We set the time to meet for the next morning at 9am. Two outstanding gentleman met me at my storage unit and begin working immediately (they were super quick). I was moving my one bedroom apartment and they were able to get everything into the truck within less than an hour! They also were able to help me move everything into my house quickly. They handle my items with care and treated them like they were their own. Needless to say, I would recommend Ace Movers to anyone looking for a quick, professional, and punctual job! Thank you again for all of your services!!!!
What a pleasant experience. The guys (3) were incredibly respectful, hard working and thorough. Having moved many times and used several movers, Keep It Moving might be the best overall company I've used to-date. I would absolutely recommend them.
I don't usually write reviews but Robert did a wonderful job and I'm compelled to write a review. Robert did an excellent job in delivering furniture we bought from a local store. It was a heavy piece (solid wood big TV stand with fireplace), and Robert and Carl knew how to handle it well. Robert was very responsive from the time I got in touch with him. Everything was communicated well in advance and I knew what to expect. He was punctual (actually was few minutes early). After setting the TV stand in place, they helped taking the packaging to the garage. They also helped moving my old TV stand and TV two flights of stairs. Very pleased with the overall experience. Would hire him again without any hesitation and would recommend him to friends and family.
These guys finished the job of moving a 210lb mattress to my second floor bedroom that IKEA's contracted delivery services are prohibited from doing (word to the wise).
Communication with Adam was great leading up to the time of the move. The crew that showed up on moving day was excellent - very polite, professional, and hard workers. All in all, I was very happy with A & A Professional Movers!
I have moved many times, have worked with large national moving chains, but can honestly say I have never had a move that went this smoothly. The Affordable Guys team was friendly, fast, really hard-working, very professional. My "treasures" were treated respectfully and all arrived intact. I would definitely use them again and recommend them to anyone in need of movers.
