Mircea S.

We hired Dave The Mover because they were the only ones available when we needed and their costs seemed reasonable. They showed up on time, were friendly, at the time we thought this was going to be a good experience. Big mistake: during the move they actually broke our big flat panel TV but took no responsibility for it :( They claim they are insured, but then said that the insurance is only $50 per item?!? The TV was worth $1700 and it looks it will be a total loss for us, it made this a very expensive move. I am going to try to sue them in small claims court to see if I can recover at least some of the loss, but this has been quite a disaster. Next time I need a mover I'll make sure to go with a more reputable firm, not a flimsy LLC like Dave The Mover.

These guys are great. Personable accommodating in treating our furniture like their runs. Our son use them several years ago and referred us to them. I would never use another mover and they will be moving us into our new home once it is built.

This is the second time I have ever used Dave The Best Mover. Both time they were very professional, always on time, polite, just an all around great staff. The times I have used them not one thing was ever broken or marred in any way. From Dave and (Perla, who is the office agent) they were so helpful with answering any questions I had. I recommend them highly—-I guess the best way to say it is: on a scale of 1 to 10 I rate them a 25.

It went very smoothly. They were polite, communicative and moved quickly. Dave talked to me on the phone during the planning phase to answer questions. The office staff was also very nice and responded quickly.

Description of Work
Moved all the boxes and furniture from my 2 bedroom home into storage. Rearranged the storage to fit in a 10x10 so that I could cancel the 2nd storage unit. It even left room for a few more boxes that I had later.

These guys rocked it! The crew of three showed up early and got straight to work - no wasting time, no fiddling around. They worked hard and finished the move in less than the estimated time. All three of the crew were clean-cut and friendly. They used lots of pads to protect our furniture and used a plastic wrapping film on top of the pads to help keep everything clean. If Angie's List would let me give them an A+, I would. We will eventually sell our house and need to move into another one. When that time comes, we're calling Dave The Mover!

Dave and a older woman came late for one. they took there time being slow and getting stuff that was ready and easy to just take upstairs to this small uhaul truck they had. I moved my stuff and set up to my inlaws with only me and my husband in less than 2hrs. they took over 5 hrs to get the stuff upstairs and to the moving truck and was basically throwing my stuff in the truck. then asked if they can put stuff in my pickup truck. they got done at the my inlaws loading everything , dave told me that him and his helper will need to stop and get something to eat befcause they havent ate all day. so he said he would meet me @ my new house. by this time it was getting late, I said fine whatever. I got to my new home and unloaded what was in my pickup truck and put it all away. dave and his helper still had not got done eating. dave called me an hour later saying they we on there way . I okay. They finally arrived and started to put stuff in my house right in the family room and not into the rooms I wanted it in. He told my father-in law instead of being on his cell phone and smoking he could use a hand in helping . Are you kidding me I hired you to move my stuff, if i wanted my in laws help then I would of got them to help instead of dave. but just so we could get my stuff in the house my father in law and I started to help unload the truck just they wouldnt be at my house all night. dave's helper lady could barrely lift anything and told me she cant be lifting lots of stuff because of her back problems. then after all done unloading I was quote a $100 for my move then when I went to write the check he told me it was $500 because I lied about what I needed moving and had more than what I said. Then he said they had to stop for eating and get gas which was on my time and I had to pay for there break and gas refill. I had enough of Dave's BS. iI said im not paying you $500 when you quoted me $100 and im not paying extra for you being late and not bringing strong help, instead you brought a older woman with back problems that could barely move anything and you took hours to load stuff at a slow pace, then you told my father-in law to get off his phone and stop smoking and help you and we both helped him in which we shouldnt have.and put stuff in just my family room instead of where i wanted it. Dave then started screaming and yelling @ me telling me he is going to call the police on me and going to off how I need to pay him $500. Then i yell no either you take the $100 or nothing. My father-in law told him he was not to yell or threating me and what kind of business man he was. Dave also knew my husband was overseas and i lost my borther in law not even a yr yet and he said to me still yelling F the military and your brother got what he deserved because I was nothing but a cheap rip off *****. I then told him to get the F up out of my house or I will be calling the cops on you and you don't speak to no one like that and F paying you anything. I got them out of my home locked my doors shut my garagedoor. They left with only a check for $100 which was never cashed because I diputed it with the bank because of his rude mouth and demnor. I told everyone not use him if they were moving. so all these reviews I have read from nice to bad, Im wondering where was the nice dave on my moving day ?

I sent an email requesting a quote for service. I was give a poorly worded response back from Perla stating that I need 3 movers @ $180//hour then asked me how many rooms and what type of furniture. I have a big problem with quotes over the phone and asked for them to come to my house for a inperson quote. I heard nothing back from them for 24 hours when I did get a response it was simply, "WED 03/08/17 at 9-10am". No hello....no sincerely no choice of time frame. I was given a slot and that was that. I responded with an email stating I had to be at work during that time and would need a new time slot after 3pm. Over three hours and there was no response from the company. Seeing how my entire experience with them could be like this I have now cancelled my request for a quote and will go with one of the other moving companies that are actually treating my like an important customer.

Sorry. It is generally easier for us to call when we have a phone number to call. Best to you Dave Wassenaar We are generally not in the position to give estimates after 3 o'clock. Is that cuts into the end of the day and family time.

The initial visit went very well. Two people from the office came to my home, as scheduled, to inspect the contents of the move. They looked thoroughly everywhere, asked pertinent questions, clarified a few issues and finally sat down to prepare an offer which they presented to me some 15 minutes later. I had received two other offers from other movers. One rather lower, the other similar (but still lower) to the one I was being presented with. The difference was that they did not visit to inspect the contents. So I accepted the more costly offer because I felt the people involved understood what they were offering better than the competition. They seemed knowledgeable and professional. The service a few days later was excellent. The crew came, on time, with two trucks. Everything that was not packed was protected. Nothing was damaged in the process. The crew was not only very polite, but willing to accept my suggestions the very few times I thought they could be relevant. Moves are never fun, but this one was, by far, the largest and at the same time the least stressful I have ever made. The company knew all along what it was doing. Great service.

We had a great moving team! Bo, Alfredo and Axel were fantastic and took excellent care of our items and our homes (walls and hardwood floors) on both sides of the move. The Steinway (very big and heavy) was no problem for these pros. They were professional, pleasant and hard working. We highly recommend this company and this team. Thanks so much!

I really can't say enough good things about Dave The Mover. We had a representative come to our old home to evaluate what would be needed for our move and provide us with a quote. Over the coming weeks I had received several quotes and had questions for each company. Dave The Mover were the least expensive and most responsive to my questions. The representative estimated we would need 3 movers and 1 truck. They showed up within an hour of their estimated arrival time and did a quick walk through to see what they needed to load out. After a few hours they determined it would take two trips to move everything. As we received a "flat rate" quote there was no additional charge for the second trip. The movers continued until the job was completed, including two trips from the old house and one trip to the storage location. During the entire move all 3 movers were professional, courteous, and polite. In addition to all the moving between homes they moved several pieces of furniture between floors at the old house for the renters that were moving in the same day. At the new house they laid out furniture blankets to protect the floor and all the equipment they used was in good repair and clean. Other benefits included: Having any pieces of furniture requiring disassembly and reassembly completed without being requested Mentioning Angie's List added the benefit of having them provide wardrobe boxes for use during the move. This was very helpful as we didn't have to purchase wardrobe boxes to use for one day then recycle. Any furniture with drawers did not have to be emptied. This was huge for us as it would have taken lots more boxes or bags to pack all the clothes or other items in all our dressers and other furniture. Overall Dave The Mover was more than we could have expected from a home mover and we would recommend them to anyone looking for a home move.
