Best Moving Companies Near You

Local & Long Distance Movers In Your Area

Moving soon? Regardless if you're moving across town or to another state, it's important to take the right steps up front before you hire a moving company near you.

Step 1: Know whether you need to hire a short distance or long distance mover. Many companies consider over 100 miles a long-distance move. Also consider if you need help packing and unpacking, need storage, and need other additional services.

Step 2: Do you research. Interview several movers. Learn as much as you can about the history of the companies you are considering including reading reviews and complaints.

Step 3: Ask the right questions. Ask about rates and estimates, if the company uses subcontractors, if there are additional fees and when they apply, if there will be transfers, about their insurance, and about packing and storage services. Request referrals.

"The team of guys worked very hard packing, moving & unloading. Linas solved the problem of getting a large sectional sofa to the 4th floor of our townhouse- a crane! Highly recommend Call The Movers."

"I am very happy to write this review for Agility Van Lines. The move was the BEST experience I've had with any moving company. The office staff that assisted me were super. John gave me the best price possible. The final bill was NOT one penny more. John was very patient walking me the moving process and helping with the completion and emailing of paper work. Several days prior to move, Denise called me to welcome me to the Agility VL family. Denise also ran down the details of moving process, procedures, notification of the arrival time of movers, etc... She also answered all of my questions. Denise even followed up with me to make sure my move went well. The "Dynamic Trio" made up of Ontario, Earl and Rasheed, movers, did a FABULOUS, FANTASTIC job packing and delivering our items meticulously. The "Dynamic Trio" were very pleasant, nice, professional, helpful and treated our items as if they were their own. What more can I ask for?? Every penny spent was well worth it and made the move from Harrisburg, PA to Mahopac, NY seamless. Agility Van Lines surpassed my expectations. Great company, I highly recomment them!!!"

"The service was 5 stars! The moving team was very respectful, courteous, on time, very fast, took special care of my furniture, and friendly. I have already recommended this service and will be contacting my leasing office to use Unified Moving Services. It took less time than expected and my move was not stressful at all! Excellent work Unified Movers!"

"Movers worked hard and did not damage anything. Unfortunately they did not protect our floors with a plastic runner. They also had to call in an additional person to help move our piano (even though I told them many times it was heavy). This cost us $40 extra on top of the $150 piano moving fee. Overall good but could have been better."

"When Star International Movers entered my life it was at a truly sad and stressful time. My adult children had just received word that their father had died very unexpectedly. It rocked their world like nothing else and they both flew from the West Coast to the DC area to deal with the necessary administrative needs. We needed to find a mover who could responded over-night to come to the residence to pick up the last items that the girls wanted shipped as memories of their dad . Do you know how hard it is to get someone to come the next day to pack and move? Next to impossible! My children were at the end of their rope and were required to be out of the house quickly. When I asked Star International to help me, they passed me immediately to Andrew Donnelly, the man in charge. He listened and jumped into action. I will NEVER forget his kindness nor his attention to detail. He personally monitored the contract all the way to delivery and made sure that all was well. You cannot do better than Star International Movers - quality, attention to detail, value. You get it all. "

"the young men were exceptional. This was a move from VA to MS. They worked all day packing and loading, then drove all night and day, then unloaded until about 9pm. We were all exhausted by the time it was all done. I have unloaded all the boxes (there were many!) and thus far have not found any broken parts. What a great job they did. Thank you "
