This was one of the worst moves I have ever experienced. I chose

because I was promised careful treatment of our fine furniture and antiques. I was promised during the estimate that our French sleigh beds would be individually wrapped in moving blankets before being loaded onto the truck. I was promised and shown a room upstairs in the warehouse/storage where my upholstered chairs and leather sofa would be stored. I agree with another person who reviewed this company that the owner, a woman, gave a great sales pitch and promised the utmost care with our furniture. On the day of the move things did not go well. The beds were being carried out to the truck with sideboards clanking together, unwrapped and unprotected. Nothing went as promised and the movers did not handle our furniture carefully at all. Two of our dressers were damaged, one of them an antique and one of the sleigh beds was damaged as well. When I went to check on how the furniture was being stored I saw it piled up in the middle of the storehouse. The leather sofa had two upholstered wing chairs piled on it. None of the upholstered pieces were in the upstairs room, as promised. I insisted that they take the chairs off of the sofa so that it not get ruined. The French beds were never wrapped and protected with moving blankets as promised. When I complained about the service the owner was very unsympathetic and acted quite different than she did when giving a sales pitch. When the furniture was delivered I had to file claims and get three major pieces repaired. The carpenter who did the repair said that he has to do repairs for

a lot more than other moving companies. I wish I had checked Angie's List. Do not use this moving company. They will make promises that they will not keep. In fact, expect the opposite of what is promised. I am just glad that I did not let them touch our piano or wall clock!

This company is a pure rip-off. Be prepared to pay a lot more than the original estimate they would provide.
I had the misfortune of using their service for a household move. The move was local from a 2 bed-room apartment to a condominium building. My apartment was lightly furnished. When I called to setup the moving service, I provided exact inventory of items to be moved and locations. My apartment was located on the first floor and condominium building I was moving to had a service elevator.

quoted that the total move would take 3 hours for 3 men.
The movers came on time and loaded things on the truck. Since I had kept everything neatly organized, the whole process of loading took about 45 minutes. After everything was loaded, I told them that I will meet them at the new location.
When I did not see their truck even after half an hour, I called their cellphone. They were still figuring out my new location on the GPS and blamed construction activities for the delays. The movers arrived at the location exactly 30 minutes after I had arrived. When finally all the furniture and boxes came to the apartment, then began the final ordeal of assembling beds.
I had 2 beds. Both were - a mattress, a box spring and a standard metal frame with no headboard-footboard. Initally, one person tried to assemble the beds. At the end, all three were trying to assemble the metal frame. Basically I paid an hour for their "learning" experience of assembling the furniture. It appeared that they have no experience in assembling the furniture. So, I just told them to live it as it is and I will take care of it.
The leader then prepared the bill for 4Hours. I told them that

had quoted me a fixed price of $334. The leader called up the company. The company manager in turn said that it is now going to cost me for4.5 hours. [So basically, if you decide to question their pricing tactics, be prepared to pay even more.] At the end I ended up paying them $426.
I agree that moving experience is not something you look forward to; but having a reliable and honest mover is very important. I must say that this company is far from it.

Overall, it went very well. They were courteous, hard working and fast. Two of the movers were very efficient, concientious and careful. The third guy showed up 2 hours late and was less experienced. Damages were sustained (broken dresser and rubber skid

on hard wood floors) due to his carelessness. The company stood behind the job and hired a pro to repair all damages. The move-out was completed in 4 1/2 hours and they came in under the bid. I would recommend them.

The movers were scheduled to arrive at 8am, they arrived a few minutes earlier. They were very professional and friendly. The load time took about two hours, with the movers taking about a 5-10 minute break after the first hour. When we arrived at the new place nothing was damaged during the transit. The unload took about two hours, I was expecting it to take longer for the unload. They moved very quickly after giving direction on where boxes needed to go. That two hours also included another 5-10 minute break after the first hour. The furniture was wrapped up very well so nothing was damaged as mentioned before. We did have a cat tree that had one of the ledges not too secure, which we mentioned to them and they removed it to make transport easier and glued it back into place on unload. We were very happy with the service they provided and would use them again for any local moving we may do in the future.

We had a

that consisted of 2 brothers and a cousin and boy did this team work well together. I hope you are fortunate enough to get them to do your move. They were tireless! I had to check to see if they needed breaks ever so often. They only once stopped on their own because it was raining and wanted to give the rain a few minutes to lighten up.

quoted us 10 hours based on our move up here from Florida and the amount of estimated items to be moved. It took half that time because the team we had was so efficient. From the moment they walked in they announced they were gonna beat the estimated time on the sheet and they sure did. Nothing was damaged at all. If you need a local mover hire these guys. They are fair and will get the job done.

We were very disappointed in the service provided. To provide context, I have used professional movers (often smaller local movers) 4 times in the last 5 years (company moves). I was making a local move and unfortunately was unable to book the movers I've previously used.

was the only option available.

The
Madison Movers Provider Name Locked
that arrived were 30 minutes later than the window they told us they would arrive. As I mentioned before, I have supervised 4 moves in the last 5 years. Had I never supervised a move before, I may have not known any differently. However, this team were not efficient in their moving. I say team because the lead guy was good but his partner was dragging him down. They were not efficient in their moving, did not utilize the dollies, often making trips to the truck without much in their hands.







They chose to use an elevator ( I like on the first floor but they needed to go down 10 steps to get to street level) which took longer. Again, I have moved from this exact apartment building and previous movers used the stairs and never the elevator.







By the time that they were packed up, it had taken 4 hours. In other moves (from the same apartment and furniture) it has taken 2-3 hours. Unfortunately, my disappointment had only started. They did not show up at our new apartment to unload at the expected time. It turns out there was a medical issue with one of the men and he had to go home. The truck was waiting for a new guy to show up. I understand that these things happen. However, there was no proactive call to let us know what the status was. We only found this out after following up multiple times to the actual men and dispatch.







Ultimately, they credited us for time related to them waiting for the new mover. However, in my opinion that wasn't sufficient given the inefficiency of the movers. To be fair, I didn't attempt to get anymore credit. I did not want to work with this company anymore.

I can't say enough about how great these guys were! From the start - the owner came out to give me an estimate. He was professional, personable, and offered good advice and suggestions. The two teams of movers - especially the one that did the biggest part of the move - were exceptional. They were smart, careful, and tireless. It was a long, hard day, but we felt we were in good hands throughout. I would highly recommend this company, and will be using them again.

The team was prompt and wasted no time getting things set up to make things go smoothly.
They carefully wrapped furniture and other items with blankets.so nothing was marred or broken.
These men were professionals on every level. They knew how to load and unload the the truck perfectly, listened to my needs and were very accomodating....More /> The movers had to go up a flight of stairs, but they had a system in place to get my goods up stairs quickly and efficiently.
Once again, I can not say enough good things about this company.

AMAZING!
From the moment Scooter came to house to give a quote I was happy with the company. He explained he was giving me a worst-case scenario quote and the goal was to have the final cost lower if possible. He told us we could pick up used boxes for free and everything we packed ourselves would reduce the packing estimate. The packers (

, and
Madison Movers Provider Name Locked
) arrived on time and worked tirelessly to load the trucks. They were all extremely polite and had my home packed up by lunch time. They unloaded everything perfectly and even moved 1 or 2 items to different locations as I was figuring out where I wanted things in the new house. I have unpacked 98% of my belongings at this point and have found nothing broken or damaged. They finished almost 3 hours earlier than quoted.
I will use this company next time I move and am telling everyone I know to use them.
