From the estimate to the completion of the move, everything went as expected.

gave us an option of finishing up the work for the extra money or finishing up ourselves. We opted to pay for the additional hour. The crew was on time and very professional and super accommodating. The guys disassembled and re-assembled several pieces of furniture. The guys were very careful with our furniture and were willing to work with us getting everything placed perfectly in the new home. We absolutely loved working with them and if we ever move again in the area, we will absolutely contact

crew made it fairly entertaining and much speedier They also took great care of my 6' plus avocado tree.
Some tips for working with
Federal Way Movers Provider Name Locked
: Be organized - have boxes packed and marked so they can be placed in the correct spots at the new place. We labeled all the rooms in the new house to match the labels on the boxes and it really sped up the process. We also labeled the spots for our furniture in the new house and that also sped things up. Be prepared to work along with the Joes. The crew will let you help load and carry and again, that moves things along. Show

everything you plan to move. Open all the closets and cupboards. Show him the garage and out buildings if applicable. All of this information feeds into the estimate and the more he knows about yoru needs, the better/closer the estimate. As I noted, we ended up being about an hour off which I thought was pretty good.
It was a very positive experience and I would highly, highly recommend

After putting away everything over the last month we had only one box that had any damage with 4 items that were broken. I'm not sure that they are responsible for the damage because we packed the boxes and I had taken most of the boxes out to the garage myself. We could just as easily damaged them ourselves. One damaged box out of 80 or so boxes and a whole house full of furniture is exceptional, at least in our experience over the last 40 years of moving.

It went very well. I did have to wait longer that anticipated for the estimate, but they were able to do the move with little prior notice. The two movers communicated well with each other and with me. There were respectful of my possesions, plans and wishes and did a great job of checking with me so that everything got to where I wanted it. They were fast but careful and efficient. I would recommend them to others planning a short distance move.

The Mountain Moving men were a little late but called and apologized and did get there the second time when they said they would. After that it was a great experience they moved all my fragile items with no damage. They were fast, efficient and personable. They were helpful, careful, and there was absolutely no damage to anything. The price was even less than the original price quoted. For those who have heard horror stories about moving companies, put your fears at rest and call Mountain Movers!

It was difficult to locate the right sized truck. However, once I found it, the service was great and they were very accommodating to my needs, especially when I had to add extra days onto what I originally expected.

I called a month in advance to schedule the move. The movers came prepared. They were careful when they handled my things. Everything arrived in one piece.

Absolutely horrible. I could write a
Federal Way Movers Provider Name Locked
about how bad this move was - and I certainly wish I was using Angie's List for the review BEFORE I contracted this company. Some highlights:
-Raised price during move three times
-furniture was not wrapped so is badly scratched and dented
-missing items and boxes...More /> -slow, slow, slow. 12 hours to load a 2 bedroom house? 10 hours to unload?
-we carried tons of boxes and furniture ourselves
-took 30 minutes (while we were paying) to figure out how to park the truck
-took over an hour (yep, still paying) to figure out how to get a frig into the house (instead of setting it to the side and continuing to unload the truck)
-damaged hardwood floors, front concrete steps
-dropped boxes clearly marked fragile (I can never replace my mother's crystal bowls)
-manager was disrespectful and unresponsive to our concerns
-claims process is long and difficult
-stressful, stressful, stressful . . . stressful

The guys arrived at the scheduled time, basically, we had to wait a few minutes for some of them, but we were late with the truck, so that was ok. There seemed to be a little confusion about what they were expected to do, but that was quickly resolved. They worked quickly, (almost too quickly, because I couldn't be everywhere at once, and there were things taken to the truck that should not have, but that's not their fault). I had about 70% of my stuff packed, I thought, and didn't think it would take that much to get the rest done, but I just have too much stuff!!! They were courteous, helpful and efficient. My only issue was that I had some peg board that I had tacked up initially with 3m command strips to hold it in place (because I was working alone) then screwed in, and I had not gotten it down yet on moving day. So, rather than taking the time to pull the command strips before pulling the peg-board off the wall,

just pried it off the wall with his hands. It came off fairly easily for him, but it brought chunks of paint off, too. I was able to get the holes spackled, but ran out of time and couldn't paint the spots to diminish the appearance of the damage, which cost me. I know he was just trying to be helpful, but I wish he had either left that part to me, or been more careful.

These guys were AMAZING! Used them once before 2 years ago for a move from an apartment and had everything dropped off in multiple locations. They were timely, efficient, careful with the belongings, and most importantly, well priced. Because of this we decided to use them again for an even bigger move. They showed up early to get started. They even beat us to the initial move site. Movers had to pick up a 10x15 storage unit full of furniture at the 1st location, take furniture from a 3rd floor condo at the second location, and furniture from one room of another home at a 3rd location all in Federal Way/SeaTac area and take it to a new 5 bedroom home in

. New home presented moving challenges as every entrance required going up stairs, doorways were narrower because it is an older home, and it was pouring buckets! These guys were moving NINJAS!! They got it all done in 4 hours less time than what they had originally quoted for and not a single thing was broken, missing, or dinged! Definitely refering all our friends that are moving to these guys!

I finally have a house with enough room for a pool table. A friend of a friend had a pool table he wanted to give away. I took it sight unseen and asked
Federal Way Movers Provider Name Locked
to move it, repair it, and set it up. By the time they got to my place they looked at the table more closely. It had been completely broken down and some parts were missing. It would have cost more than I hand intended to repair and the end product would be a low quality talbe. I ended up asking them to haul it away. That was money down the drain.
While at my house they looked at the space and agreed there was plenty of room for a pool table and told me they sold used tables and thought they had one in mind. That didn't

out but a couple of weeks later they found a good 9 foot Olhausen. While there was plenty of room for the table they had to break it down to get it down the hallway. They did this on a saturday and, because thing took longer than expected, the following sunday morning.
I've been quite pleased with the results.
