    Would not hire again . Movers were fine , however the owner under quoted and over charged even though we were told at initial quote that we would be charged less if we did own packing and if we had sold furniture at time of move which we did . The owner has no integrity - the removal truck leaked oil all over driveway and we spoke to the owner and sent photos, as needed professional clean which he agreed to at the time . Once the invoice was cleaning invoice was received , he refused to pay stating the stain was not from his truck even though there were witnesses . I️ would never use MHO movers again and would warn any other customer from using this company .

    I requested 3 quotes and MHO was the cheapest by around $700. I did not regret it. Mike coordinated the job, and Joe and his crew were great. They arrived on time and were very professional. They even stopped at my storage facility and picked up a few items. As it happens, they incorrectly installed the lower bracket on the king bed in my master bedroom. My wife and I couldn't lift the mattress to fix it. I called Mike and the guys came out the very next day and fixed it. Now that's what I call service! Thank you for companies like this.

    These guys are the best movers I have used in my 25+ years here in CT. This is the third time I've used them over the past two years. Rob and his brother Edwin are very professional, courteous, Very reasonable rates, and very careful with everything they touch. They have also had some great times-saving ideas during the job. For this most recent job, we moved a lot of things around the house, and also put a number of things in the garage to store short term. Each piece to be put in the garage was carefully wrapped in plastic and stacked very efficiently. No marks on any walls or floors, and there were some very heavy pieces including an upright piano. I recommended them to my sister, she loved them and has used them again on at least one other occasion. I would highly recommend Rob's company, and have offered to be a reference for them if needed. Thank you.

    Fantastic; this was a great team and Mike (the owner) was highly responsive and attentive. The movers were courteous and quick, took great care with all items, floors and walls, and managed to fit far more into the moving containers than I would have imagined. The price for a day and a half of moving (4 men each day) was about $2300; quite a bit lower than I had expected. Between MHO's team and using PODs containers rather than a storage unit, this will have been our easiest and lowest cost move to date.

    The guys were awesome!  Weather conditions were bad, and driveway too steep for the usual big truck, so they had to rent a smaller one.  The owner got extra men because of this, and worked over three days.  Move involved carrying heavy furniture and book boxes to 3rd floor attic.  No complaining, nothing broken, everything handled professionally. They also reorganized our storage unit to fit our piano and got us 50% more space!  I would highly recommend this company, and will definitely use them in the future.

    They were outstanding. on time, on budget and completely  professional. Mike made a really tough day easy with his attitude, his professionalism, and his ability to get the job done fast and efficiently. Every item from the piano to the artwork was well cared for . The minute he walked in the door we knew we were in good hands and we were right. Would recommend them and would use them again.

    They dropped off the packing materials to our garage a few weeks ahead of time so we could begin packing. Mr. Jerry Wholey was always available by phone if we had any questions beforehand in terms of what to pack, how to pack, etc. Doran Bros. arrived on time on moving day and arrived on time at our final destination. They had professional, hard-working, efficient crews who took care to put down drop cloths and wrapped our furniture in blankets and tape so it wouldn't get damaged. Everything went smoothly. We didn't buy additional insurance on our belongings, but I would advise checking with your homeowners insurance before you make a decision on whether or not to buy additional insurance. Doran Bros. is fully licensed and insured. They don't issue a contract but use their Estimated Cost of Service as such. There is a full break down of costs on the estimate. We liked this company from the start, had two other local recommendations for them and were glad their costs lower than the other estimates we received.

    EVerything went like clockwork.  What I especially appreciated was the quality and caliber of the men doing the actual heavy lifting.  They took care in their handling of all my furnishings and boxes.  They reboxed and fortified boxes that I had not secured sufficiently.  They were incredibly efficient in loading their truck and unloading it at the storage destination in a way that enables me to access my belongings while in storage.  Mike Ornato the owner is an absolute pro.

    We hired MHO movers to pack our apartment and move us from NYC to Fairfield County.  Mike was very easy to work with, had competitive pricing, and was able to handle all of our needs.  Mike's team arrived and packed our apartment (they packed everything, down to the forks and knives!!) and moved all of our goods and furniture to our home in CT.  Not only was the team professional, they were careful with our things (we did not have one breakage and didn't have one thing missing) and innovative.  We moved into an old home and the staircase was too narrow for the box spring, Mike arrived and worked with his team to cut (yes, cut!), bring upstairs and then put back together our box spring because it wouldn't fit up the stairs...all without a scratch!  Innovative and you can't tell any difference with the bed.  Would recommend and will work with them again!

    Before I start to review the company, I want to say that the men doing the actual moving were wonderful. They worked very hard and were very considerate. The problem was the owner of the company  was unavailabe during the move.
    I had a discussion with the owner on the phone and with email about trying to pack as much of my items as possible by myslef, and they would pack whatever was left on the day of the move. The day before the move I called the owner and told him I had packed about 70 percent of my items, but not everything. He said relax, my men will take care of everything. Not a problem. The day of the move, the men came without enough packing material. In the end I found out from one of the movers that the owner told an employee to put packing material on the moving van, but the employee did not do this. On the day of the move, they did not even have enough tape or moving boxes . I can see that misunderstandings happen, but they did not go and get boxes or tape. They tried to make things work with what they had. They had us go out and buy garbage bags.
    A move is stressful to begin with, but this was a nightmare.
    I kept asking to speak to the owner, but they said he was unavailable. He only called me  after the move and made excuses about not hearing me well on the phone the day before the move. What moving company does not have tape and boxes available at some location for emergencies during a move? Why was he unavailable on the day of the move? He never adequately answered these questions for me.
    Because of lack of packing material, the move took longer, and I had to pay for that too.
    Again, the only positive I can say about the move was that the hired men doing the hard physical labor of moving were very professional and did their best under the circumstances.
