Hartford Movers Reviews
"This review is long overdue. We don't usually write reviews, but had to write this to say that
and the entire team at
were phenomenal! They were initially recommended to us by friends, their Angie's List rating confirmed what we were told, and we've since recommended them to others who ...more were equally satisfied.
and team were prompt, friendly, conscientious, flexible, and a pleasure to work with. They packed some, and moved all of the contents from our two, three-bedroom homes, into one, six-bedroom home. The move took three days, one day longer than expected because we were delayed waiting for the newly refinished floors in the new house to fully cure - it was also pouring rain on the intended move-in day. Through all of that, these guys were incredibly accommodating and sensitive to our position; they shifted our move dates out a bit where they could and even put the items from one house into a two-car garage, and then moved them into the house later once the floors had cured. Our move was a success thanks to them.

In February 2013 they moved us from our former apartment in a 3 story walk up to our new house. They ...more made this move happen in after a big snow on a narrow street when another company had previously left us high and dry (they seemed afraid of the job). They were careful with furniture items yet worked efficiently. My wife and I were very pleased with their responsiveness and professionalism.

"Another moving company screwed up and took us off their schedule and made no accommodation to fix the predicament they put us in. After calling around, I spoke with
Fleeting. He was very responsive and was able, on short notice, to put us on his schedule for the date we had planned originally. He personally showed up at the ...more appointed 9:00 a.m. time and supervised the move throughout the day. They also moved us into the new home 9 miles away on that same day after removing our possessions from the apartment in
. From our experience, the hallmarks of this company are that they take incredible care with your property, boxing the60" tv, wrapping furniture in shrink wrap, etc. The staff is very polite and hard working and
is a pleasure to work with...a real gentleman in the truest sense of the word. "
"The loading seemed to go well.we seperated a few things to be delived to a rental apt. in
ct. they consisted of a bed, clothes, TV and a chair and sofa . They showed up with the clothes, TV and a chair... NO BED. no sofa. It was the day before a Holiday weekend so there was no one I could reach at the company. Their attitude ...more was "too bad". The delivery people were 3 hours late with what little they had and had no knowlege of what was seperated out to be delivered. It was 3 days later before they came back with the bed. The rep we spoke with and arranged our move with had since been let go. We had no one to call us back for weeks. We moved to our home a few months later. After about 4 hours it was clear the movers were extremely tired so they set things where ever they wanted to.They also broke things... not just nick's.. but major gouges in wood furniture, they broke dishes and furniture and lost pieces to furniture. When I filed a list of mishaps and damage that I wanted repaired they told me how much they allow to do the repairs minus a deductable they sent $ 85.00. One table had an entire corner broken off of it. Not something easy to miss. They didn't even mention it or take responsibility. A large queen sized bed headboard has a place so worn and torn up I don't know how they could have missed it. They lost a wheel to a bed frame. A childs antique desk is missing a foot you would think they would have that lying around the truck.It was ridiculous! They had no professionalism or business ethics. They are the worlds worst movers. Buyers beware!"
"Needed my heavy treadmill moved from one floor to 2nd floor. Owner stopped by to measure and assess. That weekend he came with a young man. Wrapped and tied the treadmill so as not to damage the equipment or the stairway. Even came at 7 am for my convenience.. Three weeks prior had full blown move. Wish I had known about
. I ...more am dealing with damage and still reeling from cussing. "
"I would like to update my previous review to say that
and his crew were very nice and respectful of my husband and I during the move, I just don't feel that he came with the right people to handle the job and he underestimated what needed to be done. I am nowhere near being a hoarder or someone with a mental issue, a packrat, ...more or anything close, like
accused me of being after my first review. I work for a Fortune 100 company in a position of responsibility and I have a lot of integrity. I am a seasoned mover, though, and have moved several times in my life. I have had movers that did a much better job, so I know what is reasonable to expect. There was no reason my move couldn't have gone much faster and more smoothly, and for things to have been placed where we asked them to be placed. I did not hide anything from
- He saw for himself exactly what I had before the move.
The problem started with the fact that
probably over-booked himself that week and had to send sub-standard people to help pack me. The two women he sent took 6 hours to pack up my tiny 7x7 foot kitchen with no counter space. Both of them were older and obviously moonlighters. One was only here in the US on vacation to visit her daughter and did not speak much English. She was probably around 70 years old. Because of them,
and his crew had to work all the harder on the moving day andso did I. While the women were packing I was also packing (at a much faster rate, too). The point was that
was supposed to handle all the packing. As it turned out, I ended up packing half of my stuff myself. In the end, they never made it into my bedroom or my linen closet, which I had to pack myself.
The other problem was on the next day (the day of the actual move)
came with 3 guys, 2 of which had very little moving experience and were dead tired from admittedly not getting enough sleep the night before. At one point during the move he sent them down to my basement storage room and I became their "boss" because without me they would not have known what to do. Both were nice guys but not really up to par that day and did not move fast enough nor follow directions that well. When we got back to the house, they did not put everything where I asked it to go, and did not put down carpet protection in the bedrooms. They put down some moving cloths but it was not enough so I stopped them from doing more in the bedroom and as a result, my bed was never completely put together nor my nightstands placed. I was so exhausted by the time it was all over that when
asked me if everything was where I wanted it, I said "yes" because I had no more patience or energy to deal with them.
doesn't know is that just 2 years before he moved me I moved upstairs in the same apartment building to a nicer apartment. My husband and I did that all ourselves. I did all the packing and moving of small items and my husband and some friends moved the furniture, and that building doesn't even have an elevator. If I had all that much stuff two people in their mid to late 50s like us would never have been able to handle it. Also, my storage room was nowhere near filled to capacity. I have much less stuff now than I did 15 years ago when I had a barbecue grill, outdoor furniture, etc. And I don't even have kids or pets, or a full set of dishware. I used to have a stoneware and china service, each for 8 people that I don't even have anymore. I know what people have and I don't have anywhere near what families have. I just think it was
's responsibility to adequately assess our needs and he didn't do that so well or things would have gone more smoothly and taken less time. I am sorry to blemish his otherwise stellar reputation but I have to be honest.
Another positive I did not mention in my first review is that
and the crew were more than happy to take away some unwantedfurniture plus and old washer and dryer, which is something we very much appreciated, and which is worth a lot because having stuff taken away can be expensive. Because of that, I have changed my overall grade rating to a C from a D. I am sure that
probably deserves his reputation, he just goofed when it came to my move. I know no one is perfect, I just wish that if
, the owner of the company, came to my home and gave me a not-to-exceed estimate. His quote compared favorably to the other two I got and his competitive quote, combined with my positive impression of his experience and the fact that they were able to guarantee ...more a load and delivery date, convinced me to book
for our move.
From the beginning, the experience was seamless. Every time I called the office, an actual human being (!) - usually
- answered and was able to give me clear and helpful answers to my questions. The day before our move,
came out to our house and did inventory. They were nice and efficient and their efforts saved us lots of time the next day. The crew that moved us out -
, and crew leader
- were awesome: friendly, careful, fast, and hard-working. They came right on time and their efforts allowed us to get on the road to our new home even earlier than we'd expected.
Things went great with the delivery too.
were joined by Skip and
and they got us moved into our new home quickly and with great attitudes. They went above and beyond, helping my husband set up his office furniture just so.
I've worked with several professional moving companies over the years and I can say without hesitation that
was far and away the best of the bunch. The thing that really set them apart was the confidence they instilled from the outset that everything would go smoothly. Not having to worry about anything made a stressful process that much easier. "
"They gave me a small range of quotes for the job based on the number of rooms of furniture, subject to weighing the actual contents.
runs the business and he showed up with two very polite young men exactly when he promised. Everything was packed in slightly more than two hours. He allowed us to leave the dressers full. He inventoried ...more everything and wrapped all the wood furniture, pictures and mirrors with blankets. He pointed out any furniture that already had dings before he wrapped them. The next day, he arrived exactly when he said he would and everything was unloaded and placed where we wanted it. He showed me his inventory so that I would know everything was there. His price wound up in the middle of his range of quotes and materially less than all the other people I tried. But while price should matter and probably wins him business, if he were more than someone else the next time, I would still use
. He was a pleasure to work with, he was puctual and absolutely nothing was damaged. He was solicitous of the owner as well as me. A great firm! "
