Furniture Moving and Heavy Lifting

This was our first experience with 1st Choice Moving. We were very pleased with everything about the way they completed the moving of some large furniture pieces coming down our slightly curved staircase. They were very careful that the pieces being moved did not touch the wall. The heavy entertainment center was wrapped and carefully moved. They were very prompt and worked fast and careful. We would highly recommend 1st Choice Moving and if we have a need for their services we will be calling for their assistance.

Local Moving (under 50 miles)

I wish that I didn’t only have to choose three things that I liked about 1st Choice Moving and Storage. Not only were they professional, punctual and the quality of the service was top tier, but they were responsive and the value for my dollar could not be matched. Everyone was friendly, and they moved me quickly while wrapping my furniture and be cautious in the process, I would recommend them to anyone looking to move. Would definitely have them on speed dial and use them again. Thank you for helping what could be a stressful time run with ease.
