Description

Mastodon Moving is a fully licensed and insured professional moving company that takes great pride in providing the best possible service available to every customer. We also believe in being socially responsible and doing what we can to help others in need. For every move we do, a portion of those profits will be donated to local and foreign charities with a focus on helping children in need.

The guys walked into what was a stressful situation for the kids and me and took the moving piece and made it not only easy, but pleasant, as well. I never thought I would say such a thing about moving, but it's true. They are friendly, efficient, treated my kids like they are family and even reached out to check on us, knowing we are going through a difficult time. Excellent moving service and cu...

The moving team was great. They worked very hard and carefully packed and unpacked everything. Nothing was danGed or broken. They could not have done a better job. The cost was a bit higher than the large carriers but the quality of service made it worth while. Best moving experience so far, out of 4 relocations.

Recently, I decided to install new hardwood floors in the second floor of our home and needed help in coming up with a plan for moving and storing the furniture while the work was being done. Dave met with me and made it all happen. On the day of the move, the crew arrived promptly and got right down to work. Padding was put up to protect staircases and doors, furniture was professionally taken ap...

For the most part, it went ok, however the slats in the bed frame were not screwed back in, and my partner ended up crashing to the floor as the slats shifted and the foundation/mattress fell. While this dramatic oversight was severe, the rest of the move went quickly and I have no other issues. Also, one of the movers was late. Not terribly so, but noticeably. We had pre-purchased a fix block of ...

We are so sorry it wasn't a positive experience for you [Member Name Removed]. Our normal process would be to reassemble the bed back to its original condition unless specified otherwise by the client or if the client had ant time / billing constraints occasionally they'll do this themselves. Apologies if this was not communicated properly. Id be happy to send someone by to rectify that if its sti...

JJ was so easy to work with, accommodating and extremely professional. JJ and team treated me and my belonging with great respect. The team worked efficiently and moved every item with great care.

Excellent! The crew were on time every day, friendly , and careful with our furnishings. Ivan, Allen, John, and John J really knew what they were doing. They moved my massive desk to the second floor, which initially seemed impossible, without a wall dented. I would recommend them to anyone.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
As part of our downsizing efforts, we recently moved from our home to a townhome nearby. Over two days, the crew from Mastodon packed and moved our belongings.

Done well in one day, about 10% below estimated cost. I wanted to get the move done in 1 day, so Mastadon provided a flexible team to handle 2 trips between locations. Everybody involved knew what they were doing, worked hard, and was pleasant. I think I could have got a cheaper quote, but the actual price of the move was pretty reaonable. I've never had a move come in under estimate before. We ha...

Exceptionally well. And a great value for the price.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
This moving company is excellent. I have never seen the inside of a moving truck that was this clean and a couple of employees that were as proud of their work and their company. The young men are professional and smart and clearly very experienced. They are exceptional.

Worst moving experience bar none. Initially were not responsive to request for estimate. But due to good reviews overlooked this problem. A big mistake. They showed up late. They took off without completing the job. They broke/damaged most of my furniture and lost items. Packing was sloppy and unprofessional, putting heavy things on light. They exceeded there estimate significantly and tried to ch...

Hi [Member Name Removed], I am sorry you still feel this way about our company. After your move we gave you an $800 discount because thats what you believed would make it right. After 3 months your items came out of self storage and when you called me to say items were damaged I stayed in touch about possible resolutions and repairs. We had no prior knowledge to any of this before and even though ...

We were very happy with Mastodon's services. They came out to do a free walkthrough before giving us an estimate. They were thoughtful about their estimate, changing the types of trucks to make sure they would fit down our long and narrow driveway. The day of the move they were 15 minutes early and ready to go. We had four guys there, since they were also moving a piano, and they worked very quick...
