Excellent!! Marcus was able to squeeze me in on a Sunday between jobs and called me several times to make it work. Customer Service was awesome!! The workers arrived and quickly cleaned out the basement!! Great team of workers! I will definitely call "A Few Good College Men" again for my next cleaning project.

I was so pleased to find this company! I had a very small job, and they were happy to do it for me, fitting it in between larger jobs. All the other companies I contacted wanted way too much for such a small moving job. Marcus was very prompt in communicating, and his workers were friendly and fast. I would definitely use them again.

I called A Few Good College Men for a free quote. We scheduled it but on the about a couple of hours that Marcus is to arrive, I got a message that we needed to reschedule. I called the company and was told that one of the worker got injured and Marcus was with him at the hospital. I totally understood and felt sorry for the poor worker who was hurt. Marcus called me later and asked to reschedule for the next day. He arrived on time looked at what we have and where we need them to go. Most of the furniture was being donated and some of the other furniture and equipment needed to be moved to 3 different locations from our current office space. The one big obstacle was the big double-door fire proof safe which probably weighs 600-1000lbs. Marcus was confident that they could move the safe and distribute the items to the 3 locations as well as donating and trashing the rest. He said it would probably take 2 trucks one for donations/trash and one for the move. I told him we won't be moving until mid or late September. He said he would get me a quote either later today or most likely tomorrow. I waited and there were no email from Marcus. I called the office and was told that he would remind Marcus to send me the quote, it was Friday. Nothing came through so I called the office first thing Monday. I was told that they had a huge job that was supposed to be later just got moved up so they are not taking any new jobs right now. I told him that we are not moving until mid to late September. He said that they are not taking any jobs until after August 31st. This is only July 30th. I get the feeling that they just don't want our job, likely because of the safe. It is huge and very heavy and going into a residential garage. Anyway, I told them I don't need to move until mid to late September but that doesn't seem to change his mind and I am definitely not going to beg them. He claimed that Marcus sent out an email stating they could not accept any new jobs. I told him we never got the email. Not a way to run a business.

The team showed up on time; were very polite and helpful; worked diligently; did not waste a minute. They were pleasant and cheerful. They took no breaks. At the new house they placed every item exactly where I wanted. Nothing was damaged, they handled my belongings carefully. I could not have asked for a better experience! They explained the charges, which were very reasonable. This was my 20th move (former military) and I've had moves ranging from disastrous to wonderful. This team was among the top 2 or 3 ever. I would highly recommend this company to anyone.

Overall, I am very happy with how my move went. The pricing was excellent. All the members of the moving team were very polite. They worked efficiently. They were conscientious of not damaging our furniture or the old and new home. Furthermore, they did a good job of not dragging too much dirt into the new home. Also, they went above and beyond by helping me assemble a crib after their work was complete. Nothing was damaged during the move. The only minor critique that I have was that they showed up a little late because they got caught in traffic, but this is understandable. They did call to let me know and apologize, which is a sign of professionalism in my view. I would highly recommend the moving team that I had.

A Few Good College Men did an amazing job. We got quotes from seven moving companies, and AFGCM had the second lowest price - $110 per hour plus a $130 flat fee for three movers with a full-sized truck. We went with them because of a strong recommendation from a friend, and could not have been happier with the results. Making the reservation by email was easy, and the movers arrived right on time. They walked in and went straight to work, working so quickly that I couldn't believe they wouldn't break anything (they didn't break a single thing, needless to say). After they had emptied out the apartment, we gave them the house key and went to get coffee before meeting them at the house. By the time we got there, they had found street parking and had half the truck unloaded, with the boxes stacked up in the rooms listed on the labels. They finished near the lower end of their time estimate. We have since unpacked all the boxes, and can confirm that not a single glass or plate broke along the way. I can't recommend AFGCM enough.

Excellent. The movers were very courteous and professional, and they clearly knew what they were doing. They wrapped items to stabilize them during the move, and they worked efficiently.

Description of Work
I moved from Hyattsville, MD to northern Baltimore. They moved the contents of my 1 BR apartment (queen-sized bed, dresser, desk, futon, chairs, etc.). I did the packing, although they wrapped a few of the larger items to insure they remained safe and stable during the move.

These movers are GREAT!! We were shopping around for moving companies and after comparison, we picked this one because everything is clearly laid out with no hidden charges. Markus was so nice that he stopped by our house after work to give a more accurate estimate. He is very friendly, professional and efficient! On the day of move they showed up 5 minutes early and were ready to start! Duane's team was quick and never idled around or talked on the phone. They handled everything with care and were pleasant to work with. In the end they used less time than what was estimated, we couldn't be happier with their service!

I sent them a request for an estimate through their online form on Oct 13 and stated that I was an angie's list member. It was just for a very small move, but I at least expected a response from a "super service award" winner that the job was too small if that was the case. Just ignoring my request altogether is rude and unprofessional.

We had 4 guys with 24ft truck at $150(truck/mileage) + $150/hr. Dwayne, Chris, Darell and Charlie did a great job with loading and unloading without any damage to our items. They took only 3.5 hrs to complete the job. We were very pleased and would definitely use them again.

I rarely give rave reviews, but this company deserves one. They were professional and efficient from start to finish. They gave me tips on what to do to be prepared and make the move go more quickly, thus less expensively. They showed up early, got to work, and didn't stop until everything was finished. The movers were polite and responsive to my questions and input. They carried my stuff up two flights of narrow stairs without incident. The result was an efficient move that cost less than the original estimate--no adding fees or game playing of any kind. If only all business transactions could be this straightforward. I am a satisfied customer!

Moving ANYTHING causes me extreme stress. But... these guys are absolutely awesome. The move was perfect, they were on time, careful, professional, no damage.... I can't even think of how they could be better. I am going to hire them again to move some things around in my home since they were so great. Thank you to the other reviewers comments. I hired them based on the Angie's list reviews and they lived up the the expectations.

We scheduled our move with Marcus, who answered all of our questions promptly. A crew of three moved the furniture in our 2BR apartment to our house. Job was completed within our time estimate of three hours. Movers were responsive to our requests, which earned them a large tip at the end of the job.

We bought a large, two-piece china cabinet on Craigslist and needed some help getting it to our house 3 miles away. The seller requested we come on a Sunday, but few moving companies operate on Sundays. Many that do wanted to charge a ridiculous premium for short-distance or had a time minimum. A Few Good College Men was the only company that appeared to meet our needs. We had some trouble communicating with them at first -- had originally gotten a quote and tried to schedule using Angie's List's messaging system. When they didn't confirm our move date, we called them but they had no idea we had been in contact with them at all. Despite that confusion, we were still able to schedule them for our requested date. Our contact was Marcus Hebron. On the day, we got an early morning call from AFGCM offering to do the move earlier in the day due some changes in their schedule. After several calls back and forth with the sellers and waiting for AFGCM to get in touch with their movers, we ended up sticking with our original time. The movers met us at the seller's house close to the tail end of the time window they'd indicated. They were polite and worked quickly, expertly wrapping the piece and carefully carrying it out of the seller's house. Back at our house, they were able to navigate our narrow entry stairs and got the cabinet in place and helped put the two pieces together. We were originally quoted $195 for 2 movers but they ended up sending 3 movers and only charged us $175. Despite the communication hiccups, we're satisfied with their services and would use AFGCM again. Next time, we'll call them directly rather than depending on whoever is answering their Angie's List messages.

Wow, we were so impressed. The unit was very heavy and we were concerned about damage to our new hardwood floor. The two man team carried it out of the unfinished area and placed it very carefully in position. They were early, very personable and the price was very reasonable. I would use them again for moving heavy pieces in our home and would consider them if we were to ever move. I contacted a number of companies wanting professional movers due to our concern about the new hardwood floor. Many moving companies required a minimum of 3 hours with prices running about $300. That didn't seem very reasonable given that we just needed one piece of furniture moved less than 50 feet.

I selected this mover after soliciting estimates from two other vendors. This mover, represented by Marcus Hebron, was the only one to visit me in my home to give me an estimate. Marcus was great: He set expectations properly and was helpful and responsive. His pricing was fair and transparent. I used his team for both packing (two days before the move) and moving. In both cases, his team showed up on time, worked quickly, and was friendly. I would use this mover again.

My experience with AFGCM (A Few Good College Men) was a totally positive experience. Marcus was very respectful and very hard working. He explained all details of service and payment very thoroughly. It was a fairly large move with a good amount of furniture and a lot of heavy boxes. On the day of the move, Marcus and his crew of 3 members worked very hard, wrapped our TV, mirrors, China cabinet with cardboards & blankets, wrapped all furniture in blankets, taping them in place very carefully. Marcus did an amazing job to pack all furniture & boxes into a 26' truck with excellent packing skills. They did an absolutely wonderful great job - Fast, efficient, courteous. Everything was handled with the upmost of care. On next day, they moved the items to our new home (250+ miles away), and unloaded the truck into the new home. The 2 movers and the driver were incredibly nice and hard working. They unloaded all stuff with great care. In additional, they were able to get two pieces of furniture through balcony into the house (due to the narrow staircases) instead giving it up. They set-up everything as requested with great care. Excellent service. Fantastic crew with Outstanding job from beginning to end. I was extremely happy and thrilled with their great service. I would highly recommend this company to anyone.

They charge half the price. Their estimate was spot on. They worked quickly. They didn't overcharge me. They secured my valuables with cloths and things like that as opposed to bubble wrap and did not charge me extra for anything. They are straightforward. They give good estimates, are on time and are very reasonably priced. They are just wonderful.

We'll definitely use their service again - thanks!
