Reviews of Movers of Small Spaces Near You
Express Moving and Storage
The move went well. We were quoted 3 hours but the move took 4. Two small items broken but otherwise the guys (Walter and Dustin) did a terrific job. They carefully packed all furniture well.

Two Marines Moving
They arrived early but did not start charging me until they started working. All items were moved quickly and professionally. Everything arrived at the new apartment in the same condition as it was when it left the old apartment.

REGENCY MOVING & STORAGE LLC
Regency Moving handled a local move for us several years ago...we needed to arrange for a limited move to establish an apartment at the last minute and Regency was able to accommodate us. The professionalism was great as were the results. And the price was very competitive.

Majestic Moving and Storage
Majestic made my small move the day after I called them. There were absolutely no surprises; the movers did a great job, and treated an extremely heavy antique chest with great care.

Best Universal Movers LLC
The actual move itself was efficient! The movers were great, they wrapped up and protected all of my items, and put the furniture where I wanted in my new apartment. However, getting the movers to my original apartment was aggravating. I appreciated the flexibility with scheduling a short notice move, but I wasn't quite sure the crew would show up until they were actually there. I didn't get a confirmation of any kind, and they were forty minutes late.

My Guys Moving & Storage
I originally had a problem with this mover. A representative of 2 Guys and a Truck contacted me after reading my negative review. Actions have been made by the company and I am completely satisfied with my move.

Athletes Movers DC
We were given a moving window from 1-3 o'clock. They called us one time at the end of the window to tell us they would be coming around 4. That was the last time they contacted us. We had to call them every hour to see if they were actually coming. At 7:30 PM, they finally arrived. We waited with our boxes packed and ready to go for over 6 1/2 hours! If they had told us that they were going to be running that late, we could have easily run a few things over to the new apartment and had some things put away and made the day productive. Instead we SAT and WAITED! My daughter had a concert to go to that evening and I had originally planned to fly out of DC that night. I had to pay change fees on my ticket in order to wait for the movers! They did not once call us and when we called them, they were never upfront about how late they were going to be! We told them that they needed to deliver to the new apartment on Sunday since it had gotten so late. They hemmed and hawed a bit but agreed to come back on Sunday morning with the delivery. They did show up promptly on Sunday morning and got the move completed. I understand that things happen but it was completely inexcusable to let us sit there all day long without communicating the problem and offering some solution.

Bargain is easy to communicate with, quickly made arrangements, made adjustments to its schedule to accommodate changes to ours, and performed the actual move seamlessly. They were attentive to special needs. My brother observed the entire move, and was extremely impressed.

These movers were a pleasure to work with. On time. Well priced. Very careful with my belongings. Worked very quickly and efficiently. On top of that they were a nice as could be. I will definitely hire this crew the next time I move.

DNS Moving LLC
DNS was terrific. They responded promptly to my request for information about services, set up a move date quickly, were on time for the move, carefully wrapped the bigger and more valuable pieces, and completed the move efficiently and professionally. I thought the price was very reasonable as well. They gave really great service even though this was a very small move.

Two Marines Moving
This is one of the most professional companies I have ever dealt with, having lived in DC for 35 years and used all sorts of services. They are extremely courteous and very thorough and precise in attempting to understand exactly what your needs are. The two men who provided the moving service could not have been more efficient, and they were also such lovely individuals. I highly recommend Two Marines Moving.

Great Job Moving and Storage
G&J negotiated an excellent rate with us prior to the move day. On move day they showed up within the time frame they had given us. They worked quickly and efficiently to move our boxes to the truck and helped us wrap a couple of items we had not foreseen would need to go in the truck. When we arrived in NOVA, the two guys from G&J worked quickly and quietly (it was after 9 pm, so I'm sure our new neighbors appreciated this) to get everything moved into the right place. I have dealt with several much-lauded movers, and in the Northern Virginia area I would be very surprised to find a moving company with better service for better value than G&J. Suffice it to say, for any subsequent moves, I will go to G&J.

FIRST RATE MOVERS
I contracted with First Rate but another company arrived 4 hours late with non professional movers that took twice as long as the estimate. I was forced to pay this "other" company first rates fee even though the other company had quoted me a price $60/hour less than First Rate. James was a liar and never returned any calls, Oscar from the other company was rude. Items were lost and I was told they would check on them an never heard anything.

495 Movers Inc
The beginning of my experience with 495 movers was great. The owner came out very promptly for an estimate and was very courteous with answering questions. Verbally my boyfriend and I were told that they charged a flat rate of $165/hr and any boxes or packing assistance would be provided at no extra charge. This was a selling point for us as the owner mentioned other companies did not offer this. My boyfriend and I also were moving into a temporary apartment and had to put half of our belongings in storage and the rest in the apartment. The owner told us he had his own storage facility for us and his rate was cheaper than other storage facilities so we wouldn't have to worry about it which we thought was great. Our quote for 6 hrs and 3 men was $1145. The day of the move my boyfriend and I had not completed all of the packing of our small items. However, based on the initial conversation with the owner, we anticipated having the extra help of boxes and labor built into the hourly rate. To our surprise 495 movers showed up with only 2 men plus the owner and our move lasted a little less than 10 hours totaling $2155. When I complained in a later email here is what the owner wrote back ""our agreement was that you will pack all your belongings and that we will take everything when it boxed and ready to move when i came to your house almost nothing was ready and we packed alot of boxes and provided a lot of boxes with no extra charge". Besides the fact that over half of our items were packed and ready, this is the same person who told us on our initial visit that additional boxes and packing assistance were free and included in the flat rate". At the end of the day on moving day the owner tells us he ran out of space in his storage facility and our only option was a separate $400 storage rental facility which is much higher than the market storage rate for this area. Thus, he initially offered us something that he did not reserve for us and we were left at the last minute with no other options. My boyfriend and I told him we needed to think about it and when I called the owner the next day to ask the size of storage space that we needed he told me he had spoken with someone and found another location for us at a cheaper price of $349 or something like that. I asked if he'd called all the storage facilities in my area to make sure it was a good deal and he said yes. We gave him the ok to move our things there (in the interim our storage belongings were on his moving truck). Upon my boyfriend and I making a trip to the 'new' storage facility to pick up a forgotten item the next day, to our surprise this new facility turned out to be the owner's location which was merely a small warehouse-type space attached to his office! To our dismay we found our expensive furniture & household items stacked on top of each other in a small corner and practically smashed against other people's furniture items. You could barely walk in the storage area as many people's household belongings were just stacked everywhere. Thus, not only did the owner provide misleading information by saying he'd "found" another storage facility, but we did not even have a private space or even access to our things with our own key. To make matters worse, I found a much cheaper private storage facility directly across the street from our new residence (proving the owner did not check for other facilities). We ended up having to pay him again to move our things to another storage facility.The day the owner moved our items to the new facility. All, for the most part, went smooth until the end. I complained about our cost for the 2nd move especially in light of his untruthfulness about the storage facility. To my shock, in response to my complaints the owner soon started literally yelling at me in the middle of the storage parking lot, which was extremely unprofessional. He was shouting saying he never told us it was a private facility and he had the right to charge us anything he wanted for it because he was running a business and he also did not owe us a free 2nd move. He did end up discounting this cost after the shouting match. To date, I have purchased a new home and we just moved last month. Our new moving company District Relocators ended up charging us a little less than $900 for 7 hours, efficiently helped us pack all loose, small items that were not packed and were the ultimate professionals. I know it's hard to find good movers and I started not to write a review until we had such a great experience with the 2nd mover. In summary, I'll say that 495 movers is not necessarily a bad company. The owner is pleasant enough, however if you have a problem with their service and complain, the owner may not handle it professionally. Also, I would suggest using their moving services only and packing all of your items beforehand vs. relying on them to help you finish. Finally, I would definitely shop around because moving companies all tend to sell themselves as doing this or that better than other companies, but in the end they all have their issues. The one I used for my last move was recommended by a friend and I only wish I'd found them sooner.

NOVA Express Movers
Received an estimate on-line which they stuck to. They were flexible enough to change the move time when something unexpectedly came up. The 2 movers arrived on time and were considerate and professional. They got to work and moved everything in a professional way. Nothing needed packing because of the short distance involved in the move. It ran an hour over the estimated time, but that was not unexpected as I have a lot of things in a small apartment. I move fairly often and know to expect some minor dings on the furniture and there were some, but nothing unreasonable. For this short move NoVa Express Movers did a good job and I would recommend them.

Metropolitan Moving & Storage
Metropolitan Movers are some of the most professional movers we had a chance to work with, about 5 in the last 7 years. We live in a 1920s era building in NW with extremely small and tight stairs and a rickety elevator. They measured the doorways and the torque around a small staircase to make sure that they knew what they would have to take apart and what they could keep intact to move. None of the others had done that. Attention to little details like that made it so that they were able to execute the move smoothly and quickly on the move day and 20 percent under their cost estimate.
