Bruce and his guys were a Dream Team!!! Respectful, clean, on time, and worked efficiently until everything was done! The two movers were definitely experienced and knew how to arrange, transport, and protect the furniture with ease. So glad my coworker recommended them!

This was, BY FAR, the best moving experience I’ve ever had. From the initial phone consultation, with Bruce, to the actual moving day. As promised, the crew showed up on time and got right to work. They handled all of my items with great care and were very professional and courteous. They were focused and efficient. I highly recommend 1st Choice.

I was originally going to go with a cheaper company, but something kept telling me to choose them and I’m glad I did. The move went flawlessly and everyone involved was extremely professional and helpful.

All I can say is 1st Choice made moving an ABSOLUTE breeeze! I have moved a few times before and I never had such a stress free and smooth experience. Bruce was quick to respond with a quote and answered all my questions very thoroughly. I was truly amazed at how quickly Carlos and his crew were moving all my my heavy furniture up and down the stairs. They made sure each piece was safely wrapped to prevent any damage through transportation and never stopped for a second. If you’re considering hiring this company, I would definitely recommend them as your 1st Choice!

I called this company to schedule a move from one home to another. I spoke to Bruce to coordinate everything and all was set. Carlos and his crew came in and took care of everything, very professional and very quick and meticulous. My wife and I are very pleased with the level of care and professionalism we received.
