Moving reviews in Tacoma


This was a horrible experience, to say the least. The guys showed up an hour late (
Tacoma Movers Provider Name Locked
did call me and tell me he was running late). The guys didn't seem like they knew how to load a truck up good, since they had to make two trips to the storage unit, and I had to help stack items in the storage unit. When we started on the second loading run, the guys started going really slow, like they were trying to milk the clock. My wife and I had to help them hustle to get all the rest of the items in the truck, since we had to be in and out of the storage unit by 10PM. We ended some time close to 11PM. While loading a dresser into the storage unit, one of the workers dropped a drawer out of it, which resulted in the drawer being chipped. While picking up the drawer, the worker said, "Oh well, it should have been taped in." When we got to about 3/4 of the last truck load being emptied,

wanted to complete paper work and then call for payment. I told him he would get paid as soon as the job was finished.

then got very argumentative, told his 2 workers to stop what they were doing while he went to talk to my wife about the payment. He accused us of trying to rip him off and take off quickly once the job was done. We assured him that was not going to happen (showed him the cash we were going to pay him), but the guy still wouldn't accept what we were saying. Finally, I had to help the guys finish stacking everything in the storage unit. VERY UNPROFESSIONAL!!! This guy and his workers were a basket case from the start. The only reason why I used him was because my previous movers fell through and I had to get this done that day (which was a Sunday). Not only that, a week later, my storage unit was broken into. I would definitely not recommend this guy to anyone, even if it was the last resort.

and his crew were outstanding. They were very concerned for my happiness with service and they were professional, fast and provided friendly service. Would recommend to anyone and I would use them again.

Everything went very smoothly and we were happy with the service. The dispatcher stayed in close touch with our friend in Wisconsin to coordinate the pickup. Because it is not such a popular route it took several weeks to arrange but that wasn't a problem for us. The truck was picked up in Wisconsin on a Tuesday and arrived in our town on Friday in good shape. It traveled on a large flat bed and I believe there were other jobs enroute. We met the

in a large parking lot off the freeway where he could unload the truck.

and Keegen arrived promptly with both having great personalities. I was not looking forward to the move, but as soon as they were at my house I could see they would do the job and do it right. We talked about what needed to be packed first and then what was going to the storage unit. They both worked very quickly through the thousand boxes and bins I needed to bring as well as the heavy furniture. We headed to the storage unit first, and they quickly unloaded everything and stacked it with room to spare.
They carefully handled all my stuff, but I was most appreciative of the few nicer pieces that I own. I was surprised how they could effortlessly pick up a very heavy piece of furniture and make their way to the truck without even a hint of a problem.
Let's face it, moving sucks. It took a lot of the stress off of my shoulders to have two very nice, professional movers. I not only will recommend this company, but will always try to use them in the future.

First of all they were the only company to guarantee immediate delivery. Second of all their salespeople are really helpful and
knowledgeable. They provided both of my buildings with certificate of insurances at no extra cost.
The owner of the company came by himself to provide the in home estimate and was super friendly and professional. He patiently answered all of my questions and I felt compelled to sign up right away.
The movers that showed up did an outstanding job. Every single piece of furniture (even tiny ikea nightstands) were wrapped in blankets and shrink wrap. They stuck to their delivery time frame. I cannot recommend this company enough.

Three movers came and moved all of our furniture and some boxes into storage. They arrived right on time and went to work immediately. They finished loading the truck and then on to the storage unit. Again, they were quick and efficient. About 10 days later, they met me at the storage unit and loaded the truck. They made short work of the move and everything was placed into the house as requested. They helped to set the beds up and then left.

When I scheduled appt with

I was quoted 115/hr and two guys. What showed up was three men and a quote for 156/hr. I told them I didn't sign up for that and the crew lead,

, got
Tacoma Movers Provider Name Locked
on the phone and we resolved the issue without much pain. The three guys couldn't be nicer and more professional in their craft. I really liked how respectful they were to our belongings, time and family. I am still stunned at how fast they made this all go. I give the crew an A and the management a B. I would use them again and recommend to anyone.

This is regards to moving a 2 bedroom apt. from
Tacoma Movers Provider Name Locked
to Tacoma.
I arranged all this by e-mail. There was not attempt to ascertain the amount of furniture, I did have enough furniture for a 2 bedrm house....
The provided a 3 day window for pickup. 8 PM of the very last day they called to say they were an hour away. I reminded them that they would need a smaller truck to shuttle from my apartment to the full size van. The driver was unaware despite my communications with the company. As a result, they put off the move for a day and gave me $100 off.
They arrived at 11:30 the next morning and took over 8 hrs to load, though I had packed almost everything. As a result I got a very late start for my long drive north.
The shuttle truck was too small. Late in the day they said they might have to go empty it and come back, which would have added at least 2 hrs (the moving van was parked 25 miles away). They then decided they could fit everything.
Furniture was wrapped well -- until they ran out of moving blankets, having underestimated the amount of furniture. The combo of lack of wrapping (before moving stuff into the van), trying to squeeze it into the smaller truck and maybe fatigue after 8 hrs of loading may account for damage. I remain surprised they try and do all this with just 2 workers.
They promised a call that night about the actual weight. I finally called 3 days later and requested the info before they relayed the wt (and cost).
They did warn me delivery could take up to 3 weeks, but there was no estimate of actual delivery date until day or two before -- after changing their estimate a couple of times. They delivered 11 days after pickup.
Upon arrival, there were multiple items broken or damaged. Chief among them a glass table top. There was an box with electronic equipment had been soaked due to rain leaking in the truck. A chair with water stains. A file cabinet with the wheel broken off. A desk broken at multiple seams, dye rubbed off several corners of a leather sofa.
It felt like I had to discover all these problems as opposed to announcing them upon discovery. They glued the desk back together at the seams and taped it to set; The opened the electronics to dry. A photo was taken of the broken glass. The problems were written on the manifest.
I was told I would be called to settle any claims. No one ever called. I have an e-mail into the original sales agent seeking direction on filing claims.
The 2 movers were polite, pleasant and worked hard. They appeared to pack everything pretty well, but 11 days in the truck and everything compressed and stacked took it toll. Plus the moving van leaked water.
Certainly not what I expected from an all "A's" rating on Angie's List.

I coordinated the move with

, the owner. We were moving from a 2 bed/1 bath house to a 4 bed/2 bath house. He gave me a phone estimate based on a furniture inventory list I'd prepared. He estimated 4-6 hours for a 2-man crew (8-12 man hours). We were apprehensive about getting our own truck, but
Tacoma Movers Provider Name Locked
promised they would bring all necessary equipment and the cost savings he was offering as compared to the 4 other bids I received were enough to offset the price of the truck and our apprehension.
The move went off wonderfully.

(crew) arrived on time at the house we were moving into and arranged the furntiture that we'd purchased from the seller first. They were careful, diligent, quick and fun to be around, which was nice because moving is stressful! After this, we drove to the house we were moving out of and they loaded everything.

were doing such a great job that we asked them to help with more than we'd originally planned and we still ended up within budget.
These guys are great, careful, quick and strong. I recommend them without reservation. The added "chore" of obtaining our own moving truck was so totally worth it.

were GREAT!*


This was the best decision I've ever made when it's come to moving. Their pricing was reasonable and their responsiveness excellent. I cannot recommend these guys enough. They were on time, and handled our things with respect and care. They finished early and under-budget and were wonderful "excellent gentlemen" all around.
