Five star reviews are rare for me these days, but Advantage Moving gets ALL of ’em!
*quick response, quote, & scheduling
*showed up a little later than quoted, but called to update me and let me know
*sent THREE STRONG movers who were FAST
*charged by the hour vs by the item (which can often bite you in the behind)
*didn’t spend hours necessarily covering stuff in plastic wrap to buy up time
*moved me in half of the minimum req time and stayed to assemble bed
*they were just plain friendly
Note: you won’t see these guys showing up in fancy embroidered polo shirts like other movers, but they get the job done quickly and efficiently and they don’t jack up the price like other movers. I’ve since recommended them to several people!
The twelve months I spent in my first apartment flew too fast–not because I liked the apartment or had any sentiments about it being my first place, but I just really hate packing and moving. I know nobody LIKES these things, but a really awesome moving company sure makes it a lot less stressful, and that’s where Advantage Moving comes in.
I got a quote a few weeks in advance (with a generous Yelp discount, to boot!) and was thrilled to find it was significantly less than the few others I’d gotten. On moving day, two guys in an Advantage Moving truck showed up right at 8:30 with two dollies and a mass of other moving equipment. Both were friendly, good-spirited and wasted no time getting started. Furniture that would take three of me to drag across carpet was lifted over a shoulder and carefully maneuvered down a winding staircase. I was even complimented on my togetherness and organization despite running out of tape two boxes too early.
From my three-story walk-up to an unlit storage unit in a narrow hallway, these guys got my stuff in safely and were always willing to go the extra mile to make sure I was happy with everything. The price was exactly what I was quoted and the whole move took less than two hours. One of the guys even turned out to be a fan of my favorite hockey team! How cool is that? I only wish they did interstate moves!
I was very pleased with Advantage Moving. The movers were supposed to arrive between 8am and 9am. I happened to be watching the clock and they showed up at exactly 8:00am. They worked quickly and efficiently, were friendly, and handled our items carefully. They didn’t talk a whole lot, but I suppose that’s not what they’re paid to do. They stuck exactly to the quoted rate. I have no complaints.A lot of people seem to have problems with the amount that movers jack up the price when you add on additional items. I can’t speak for how Advantage Moving handles this since everything being moved was in the original agreement, but I do know that this is how a lot of moving companies get ya. With any company I would just make sure to be very thorough and not forget anything when asking for the quote.
Every year I pack up my stuff and move to a new area code. I’m always shocked and/or disappointed by the cost of movers and damage done during the moving process. Typical Movers are late, rude, have to stop for gas, or want to charge you extra for things that should be included. Advantage moving company gave me a new perspective on how pleasant moving actually can be.Advantage movers truly went the extra mile to meet my needs and be sure I was completely satisfied with the experience before they gathered a single cent.
I received a reminder phone call the day before the move date. The guys arrived early *gasp!*, didn’t waste a single moment, listened to me carefully as I pointed out what was mine and what was my room mates, and packed my entire place up in less than an hour.
When we arrived at my new place, the guys unpacked my stuff extremely quickly. They both checked in with me before setting certain furniture down to be sure I was satisfied with the location. I let them know I only wanted to spend $200 and they were kind enough to alert me when we hit the cut-off (by which these miracle movers were already finished).They worked as a team to ensure I was totally happy with every aspect of the move.
I’m excited to move in the future knowing that I have a dependable source I can call for help. Not only were they the fastest and most considerate movers I’ve ever worked with, they were also the cheapest. I will absolutely be recommending them to family and friends.
I believe my two movers names were Jeremy and Juan. They were the best! Hopefully next time I’ll have the opportunity to request them again.
We had exactly 100 boxes, plus furniture, appliances and a grill and the two movers were very professional, skilled, and quick. They clearly knew what they were doing and filled both their truck and our storage unit very efficiently. They were very helpful in letting us know that adding this or that on to the estimate might be more expensive than we’d be wanting to pay (i.e. shoe organizers) – so we took them in our car and they loaded them in to the storage unit with the other items that they’d transported.
**In response to Melody T’s issue with items not being “on the list” – our two movers were very accommodating in letting us add things on site to the quote. As a matter of fact, we had called ahead of time to ask about getting a re-quote (once we’d packed and saw exactly how much stuff we had!) and the manager said that it is their standard policy to adjust the quote ON SITE and that it would be no problem.**
In all, we would highly recommend them! It made our first move much easier and hassle-free!
My husband and I moved from Pflugerville to Lewisville a few weeks ago and the guys from Advantage Moving were AMAZING! Those two guys were some of the hardest working people I have ever met. They loaded up our house into their truck in under 2 hours, were very accommodating when we requested to drop two items off at my sister’s house on the west side of Fort Worth, and unloaded our stuff into a garage and apartment in Lewisville in record time. Despite the heavy lifting and terrible traffic everywhere they went, they never stopped smiling! One of our bookcases was damaged in the move, but they proactively documented it and made sure we understood their claim process before leaving. The fact that their pricing is very competitive is just icing on the cake. Thanks, Advantage Moving, for making our transition to a new city that much easier and worry-free!
In person, they didn’t disappoint either: the movers who came to my place were very courteous and careful with all my stuff, and didn’t make me and my partner feel weird and dirty, like movers often do.
The last surprise came when we unpacked our stuff – nothing was broken or stolen!
The guys were cool and un-creepy (c’mon girls, you know how you dread the creepy mover guys) and were very careful with my stuff. I will be calling them any time I have to move in the future, and will recommend them to my friends.
Awesome movers. Ive used these guys 3 times, patrick was the crew leader all 3 times
they are on time and dont mess around. fast and friendly not a scratch or nick.
i refer these guys to all my friends without hesitation.
Satisfied Customer. Much better than the last company I used. Called me on the way and showed up ready to work. Quick and careful, got everything in one trip with no suprises.Highly recommend.
They did a fine job. The crew was on time and fast. Even though I miscounted my boxes pretty badly the additional charges were more than fair.I would easily recommend these guys.
My move was from Austin to San Antonio.
