It was a complete nighmare.  They are thieves and liars.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Please whatever you do, DO NOT trust or use these guys; they are trading on the Starving Students names but they are not related.  They gave me a binding contract for $3500 and when everything was on the truck they did a bait and switch and raised the price to $6000 or my stuff would go on the sidewalk.  And they were supposed to pack the house and came completely unprepared and I ended up buying boxes myself to get it done.  And the packers were just kids who didn't know what they were doing.  The truck leaked and damaged a lot of stuff.  One of the worst experiences ever.  BEWARE!  They are liars and cheats.

The two movers, Will and Travis, called before arrival to confirm the time. They walked through the office with me to determine exactly what was required, and what tools would be needed. They had me sign the invoice to confirm the start time for the job, and they started moving. They got the entire job done in approximately 30 minutes, the were very professional ,and took great care of our furnitu...

My things were packed badly, stolen, broken or missing. It was a nightmare and some of those things can never be replaced. Don't use them!!!!

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
I had to pack and put my entire townhouse into storage. They were awful! 2 guys show up with a truck and did not seem to know what I had requested on the phone. I was very ill and could not help much so had to depend on them tremendously. Most of the work was not done in the time alloted. When I went to my storage a few months later to get my belongings back I was horrified to discover most of my things were missing. Photo albums were gone, lots of movies and most of my good CD's were gone. Boxes were torn and stacked haphazardly. I can never get some of these things back and feel like I was taken advantage of in this. They charged too much though quoted much less. I was in between a rock and a hard place because they refused to bring what was packed to my storage unless I gave them the money. I called the office the next day and the day after that to find out why I was charged so much more than quoted and got no answer. Don't use them!

On Tuesday, 6-14-11, I hired movers for a 6-18-11 move.  Two movers arrived on time at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, 6-18-11.  They complained of being tired, and of the fact the apartment was located on the third floor.  Although the move sheet clearly stated the address and apartment number, 301, they claimed the main office didn't tell them the apartment was located on the third floor and that a stair...

We chose Starving Students because they were the cheapest moving company we could find. Apparently you get what you pay for when it comes to movers, and I feel we would have actually spent less money with a more expensive option. They arrived two hours after we were scheduled to move, and spent a large part of their time (on the clock mind you) either taking smoke, snack, or cell phone breaks, or ...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
We moved the large furniture items and pre-packed boxes from one apartment with one bedroom and an office to a similar size apartment about a mile away.
