    Run Away!!
    Run away! Run away very very fast!!!! After making reasonable fixed price quote, they then tried to renegotiate $50 higher price. After that was resolved set a schedule to pickup the piano. Scheduled to pick up a week later between 10:00 and 10:30 in the morning. At 11:30 they had not shown up. Called them. They had an excuse that they lost the contact info and would now pick up in the afternoon. Called pickup location and told them would be there between 2:00 and 2:30. At 3:00 got call from truck driver that they were on there way from another location and would be there in maybe 30 - 35 minutes. I was disgusted. Called and cancelled the work. Again, Run away! Run away very very fast!!!!

    Late to start- but worth it.
    They were an hour late to get started, but they made up for it with efficiency, kindness, and being overall good people. The price was fair and they went above and beyond, even asking if I needed help moving things out of my own car once we got to the location of my new apartment. Will definitely be using them in the future if I move again. :)

    Terrible with a capital T appointment was set for 9 am no one showed up I called numerous times before someone finally picked up an hour and half later. After being fast talked she says the truck broke down. Well thanks for giving me a courtesy call? luckily Mr Moes movers came to save the day the guys helped me out were fast and were gentle with my belongings. Definitely would NEVER recommend this moving company to anyone. If you need a mover call Mr Moes.

    I hired this company on a Monday for a move job the coming Saturday. We scheduled for 3:00pm on Saturday. Friday I called to confirm and find out their preferred payment method. On both calls, the lady that answered the phone seemed distracted by things going on in the background and kept asking me to repeat myself. Saturday at 3:00, they were no where to be seen. I called and got the same lady. She said some how it wasn't recorded and could have someone there between 4:00 and 4:30 and agreed to 10% off for wasting my precious time. 4:30 came no movers. I got a call from the lady at 5:15 asking me if the job got done. I informed here that I still had not seen any movers and no longer needed the services because I had used up most of the time I reserved for this project waiting on them to even show up. If you are a busy person like me or just don't like to have your time abused stay away from this company.

    Ms Anderson,I sent a personal message letting you know this also . I did my part on sending our crew and moving truck to your location. I didn't receive a call from you after they drove an hour !/2 to your location. When they called me saying they couldn't wait anymore they asked me for your number again and had no response. and I didn't receive a call from you telling me you wouldn't be at the pick up address. The movers were busy this day also. I did keep in touch with you. sorry about the inconvienience. Jack action movers

    Ours was a small move-furniture, etc out of an assisted living facility in Anderson. We had to make two stops within one mile of each stop. The guys who moved us were courteous and careful with everything. We were very pleased with this move. It was accomplished within three hours - very acceptable.

    The guys did a great job and were quick and efficient. I had 5 pieces of furniture moving from a storage unit to a third floor apartment so it was a quick and easy job. Unfortunately it was never communicated to me when discussing the job via email that there was a 3 hour minimum and it only took an hour. I was not very happy when I was presented with the bill.

    They were 45 mins late and their receptionist was obviously annoyed that I was inquiring about why they were late. Jack didn't apologize for being late either. They badly chipped my coffee pot and glass top to a cooking pot was shattered. His helper also made sure mention how he was underpaid and tips were the only way he made money. I'm very well aware that it's standard to tip movers..I didn't need the tacky reminder. Despite this..the move was efficient and they were friendly. I think next time I'll hire a more professional company

    Punctual,efficient, and helpful the two men patiently rearranged furniture hauling pieces up and down stairs, completing their work in just over two hours. They used padding to protect floors, and neither nicked furniture nor walls. They Had to remove one door to negotiate one piece, and did so with alacrity. Well worth their charges!

    I had hired Action Movers to move me from a 2 bedroom apartment in Spartanburg to Asheville. I was unaware that I had to supply my own truck. However, they gave me time to get a truck and were very nice to me. When we did get started moving, they were very respectful. Nothing was broken. The company called a couple of times to make sure that everything was going ok. All in all, I definitely recommend this group of movers.

    I had a very challenging move with very heavy large wood furniture and awkward small stairwells. The movers were on time and friendly, but only wrapped them in plastic, not padding, and did some damage some items. Nevertheless a good value for the price and far better than me and my friends could have done.

    We'll let me say the 2 young men that came out were very polite & worked well. However, I was disappointed that they did not have reliable GPS. My place is easy to find but they didn't know their way around Greeenville. Owner should have given them directions or a decent GPS system. After 30 mins on the phone trying to direct them - I finally went out & got them to follow me to my house. Again they were very courteous & did the job of loading our pickup & tying it down well.

    Jack moved a very heavy item in my house. He arrived 15 minutes early and was finished within 30 minutes. He arrived in uniform, with a nicely labeled van that gave me more confidence about his business stability. He answered my bid request within 10 minutes of posting, and came early on a weekend the NEXT day! Thanks!
