These guys were amazing! Their pricing was well under the competition, by over $200! They arrived on time and prepared. They were friendly and extremely accomadating. They were able to fit everything in the storage space (which we thought would be impossible) And did so in a neat, safe and organized way. We were very happy with the level of service provided. And would recommend this company to any...

Scratched up and dented my hardwood floors. His workers were on their phone texting for a lot of the time. I got an eye infection and corneal abrasion that day and was in extreme pain and lost my vision, and they took advantage of the fact that I couldn't see or monitor them well to do a ****** job. Texted him the picture of my dented hardwood floors and never got a reply. If you read his response...

Please enter what you would like the response to look like:It's a waste of time defending against crazy, so I'll be concise as to my response. 1) She scratched her own floor by impatiently dragging her stove and fridge across her floor. We pointed this out to her at that time. It took her 7 weeks to complain without first contacting me about it, before her rather thorough social media blitz. 2) Sh...

Jimmy and his team were amazing. This is the first time I've ever had the final cost of the move end up less than the estimate. The team were efficient, friendly, and polite. They stuck around to help arrange the heavier furniture in the new place (including finagling a tall armoire that only had a couple of inches clearance from the ceiling into place on the second floor. They took extra care wit...

[Member Name Removed], Thank you for your kind words. I know you had a previous bad experience.. My industry has earned a bad reputation. Being a very small business (since 1978) I can attest to seeing and hearing of some unsavory business practices. Nevertheless, I can exhibit quality control, plus (a novelty!) we actually have years of hands-on experience and know what we are doing ( a rarity in...

1.) gave the owner a professionally prepared inventory list of exactly what we had to move. It was the exact same list a professional moving service gave us when we moved from Southern Connecticut to Longmeadow (80 miles) only 1 year earlier. 2.) Burgoff quoted $1600 which wasn't that much less than the 80 miles we had moved the year before. 3.) I accepted. 4.) Long story short: his small trucks s...

There is some disconnect here. We did not move this person !. I have two large moving trucks only. I do not have a small moving van. I have never owned a tractor trailer type vehicles either.

Jimmy's crew were very professional. They were thoughtful/intentional with the packing and got all of our stuff into one truck. They were very careful on both ends of the move. They did a great job!

Couldn't have asked for a better experience. Jimmy was easy to work with and very responsive. The movers were professional and efficient--the were non stop and didn't waste any time. I hope I don't need to move again but there is no question who I'll be calling if I do.

Jimmy has moved our household, two pianos and one hot tub for us.  He is responsive, honest and his crews are hardworking.  I was particularly impressed with how well his crew packed our goods in to the truck. . . no damage whatsoever.  We will continue using him in the future.  (The price quoted was for the last piano move.  The cost of the other moves was reasonable.)

Yes [Member Name Removed], you've had a few challenging objects to move over the years. Thank you very much for recommending the family that became your next door neighbor. A positive recommendation like that to a new neighbor shows your confidence in me and my crew. I thank you very much for that. Jimmy Burgoff

The crew was on time.  Only two of the four crew members seemed to have experience but they did a good job.   I believe that they underestimated the size of the job and it took longer than they expected.  I hired some private labor to assist but by the end of the job they were tired and a bit sloppy.  A few damaged pieces but nothing real important.   It was a good job for the price.  The cost was...

You'd think that I would be happy with reviews that gave me a mixture of A's and B's, but I am not. All of my other reviews are all A's, no B's. I operate a very small business that bears my name, quality and accountability are paramount. Firstly, this was submitted recently for a job that was done 31/2 years ago. I sent two movers, not four. I never hire workers who don't know what they are doing...
