I would never recommend them to anyone. They showed up with people they dragged off the street to move my personal items. They broke and damage several items. They did not meet any of the time lines and ended up costing me almost double the price of the quote.

Project: Move a Piano
ABSOLUTELY THE BEST. My original plan had fallen through. I contacted this company at the last minute to move a piano originally. I found them through Home Advisor and took a chance. As my plans progressed I realized that I needed to move additional furniture from New Jersey to Brooklyn N.Y. Adam was extremely helpful with both explanation and pricing of services. The movers showed up promptly and proceeded in an extremely Professional manner. They were polite, careful and respectful. I would definitely recommend them and use again. CALL THEM NOW.

I hired Start Moving to move some stuff recently. They were supposed to arrive between 9 - 10 a.m. on a Monday and call me when they left. At about 9:15 they called and told me that they'd arrive bt 10 and 10:30 which would've been fine but when they told me the updated estimated time, the driver told me that they'd arrive later because the vehicle wouldn't start and gave me an explanation about needing diesel gas and how the truck needed to warm up. At 10:30 I finally reconnected w/ the driver and was informed that the van / truck still wouldn't start. So, I asked them to send a different one and was told that they were all being used and that they had a special truck for me because it was a smaller job. I spoke w/ the drivers manager and he told me that he was trying to get it to go and would get right back to me. Eventually, he got back to me but he couldn't guarantee a time an apparently the other 3 trucks were in use? I had to commute over an hour EACH way myself just to get to my move pick up location, so it ended up taking a lot of my time to accomplish nothing. To be, fair, I understand that things can go wrong that cannot be controlled. So, I didn't want to write a negative review & rarely do so but feel compelled to write this one because despite the driver and his mngr apologizing when I cancelled that day, nobody from the office (my sales rep) ever followed up w/ me, including the person who I spoke with to arrange the move. I thought at a minimum, they'd call to try and apologize and hope to reschedule. After one full week they sent me a standard non personalized email from a template that they send to every home advisor Quote that they provide everybody as a general follow up w/o referencing what happened. I ended up hiring another mover that did a great job for me. It's no been 10 days and I still haven't heard from them. I gave them a "2" in two categories instead of a zero because incomplete is not an option.

Review by Wayne S. in Clark, NJ
Start moving does a poor job on explaining the insurance policy, how I can protect my furniture. Customer service is the worst I have every experienced in any industry. Company was unresponsive to on going issues.

Review by in Reseda, CA
It was fantastic. The move was great. The guys were fantastic, I've never seen anybody work so fast in my life. Yes they wrapped the furniture, they did a great job. No, no nothing was damaged. Like I said, it couldn't have gone any better than it did. Yes they gave me a price quote and actually the price was less than that. It took a lot less time, like I said I've never seen anybody work that fast.

I cannot say enough nice things about Start Moving. We recently moved from New Brunswick to Twin Rivers in record time. First of all, the customer service while planning the actual move is perfect. They're honest, straightforward in their pricing, and give you an idea of what you really need - no upselling. But the crew that came to actually move us was impecable. Although we paid by the hour, these guys hustled up and and down stairs, with incredibly heavy boxes. They were polite, helpful, and all of our furniture was handled professionally.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.

NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
