A couple days before they came, someone delivered some bins (which I rented instead of cardboard boxes). I packed them myself (really easy). On the day of the move they called to say they were coming and showed up when they said they would. The started taking all of my stuff down the elevator and about 30 minutes later were done. OK, not a lot of stuff to move, but it would have been hours for me to do it myself.
At my new place, they carried the bins up the one flight of stairs and stacked them neatly. It was another 1/2 hour of work. With driving time, about 1.5 hours.
Quick. Efficient. Professional. That's it.

They arrived early but did not start charging me until they started working. All items were moved quickly and professionally. Everything arrived at the new apartment in the same condition as it was when it left the old apartment.

The move went flawlessly. They arrived exactly on time and worked quickly and efficiently. I had purchased the $399 for 3 men for 4 hours plus truck on Angie's list and they were done before the 4 hours.
NOTE: the $399 for 4 hours deal includes the time it takes for them to drive to my location as well as the time to drive back to their company. In addition, the $399 does not include gas for the truck and tape they used to secure the bedroom furniture. They charged an extra $80 for gas and $10 for the tape they used. This was not clearly communicated upfront so I was not pleased but the guys did such a nice job that I didn't protest too much. Also, I had called around before and the quotes I received earlier were more than $500 so this was in the ball-park. Plus, I scheduled the move only a week before. I would recommend this company.

was easy to schedule with and the moving team was friendly, professional and efficient. They moved everything quickly and were easy to work within terms of where to place items. They required us to book and pay for an additional mover because of the scope of our job, but they finished in two hours, well under the three hour minimum; I would have preferred to pay for one less mover and have them take a little longer.

They brought with them everything we could possibly need including those wardrobe boxes with the built-in hanger rods. I never would have thought of that. They also brought plenty of tape and extra boxes that we needed.
What I especially liked about

and

was their wonderful sense of humor. They made us laugh at a time when we really needed it and we were grateful for that.

I hired Mic's Movers this past weekend to move a one bedroom to another just 2 miles away. Everything was well packed and all furniture taken apart before they arrived (I've moved too many times in my life to count, so know how to make things easier), so they were able to get right down to it. The team was headed by

who stayed for the most part in the apartment diligently wrapping furniture, checking with me as to what boxes were fragile, and organizing the order of how things went down to the truck for ease of load and removal. Two others continuously went up and down the elevator with my stuff. Everyone was super hard working, incredibly conscientious to not bang anything against wall or what not, and over all, very good humored despite a hot summer day.
I've moved a lot, mostly by myself, but had gotten to the point where I just could haul everything anymore.

and crew made the experience much more pleasant than it can be and I'd highly recommend them. I had originally hired Mic's bc a previous moving company a friend had recommended wasn't available. But Mic's quote was within the same range as the other quotes I got, and due to good reviews on Yelp, I thought I'd give them a try. I was not disappointed. As expressed elsewhere, they were very professional, arriving promptly at 9 am and were slowed only by the speed of the elevator in both buildings.

looked right at the clock when they started and did so again when they ended, counting exactly the rate and not trying to add time or anything like that.
Everything arrived in the condition that it had left. And they were nice enough to put the furniture and such exactly as I requested. All in all, as minimal stress as a move can be. Hopefully I won't be moving again any time soon, but would definitely give them a call if I needed movers.
On a side note, Mic is very responsive via email, giving a quick turn around on the estimate and thereafter when I requested contact info for the movers themselves.

They came when scheduled (actually a little early). They brought 5 movers, had the house packed up in one hour. They broke down a couple of Ikea beds and reassembled them in

and his team at
Washington Real Estate  Provider Name Locked
were a great help during our move. They were flexible when I needed to add one other stop to our move, and they were diligent about using furniture pads and tape to protect furniture in the truck. They were extremely fast and didn't need a lot of direction; they were also cheerful and very pleasant to work with. A+!

Turned into a complete nightmare...Initial estimate was reasonable, but be VERY CAREFUL about the written estimate -- mover was specifically told about wardrobe boxes and saw them for visual estimate, but a second party (perhaps) somehow wrote "linen" boxes and then did a bait-and-switch to get extra charge for $50 apiece per box..

had been very nice for scheduling but when questioned about these details on day of move, got hostile, defensive and evasive. The actual pick-up of furniture at two locations went well, however, and those specific movers were friendly and punctual. Entire cost of cross-country move was paid in advance on the pick-up day, with ZERO BALANCE due on that day as confirmed by

(rather than the usual half-and-half), who assured my friend no more money would be requested on the other end. However, now upon arrival in California the mover, "

" -- who called at 1:30 am in the morning to announce an arrival the next morning, in a few hours -- is trying to claim that a "special truck" is needed to get up a winding street, and is threatening an additional unspecified charge because the items "may" need to be transferred to this "special truck." The location of the drop-off was known in advance, there is nothing unusual about the grade or width of the street. When trying to call the "Emergency" number to seek assistance, it rang thirty times with nobody answering and then simply cuts off. In the meantime, the furniture is still being held hostage as of 27
