My name is Paul Robbins and I live in Austin Texas. I recently used the Austin moving company – Advantage Moving for this move. The experience was great – the 2 guys showed up on time, they wanted me to show them all the parts and pieces of the move before they created a ‘residential moving tactical plan’. It was easy, affordable and quick. The move went off with out a hitch! In fact I liked the guys so much I took them to Torchy’s Tacos for lunch! These guys were professional and pleasant to deal with. Great movers here in Austin!

Five star reviews are rare for me these days, but Advantage Moving gets ALL of ’em!

Here’s why:

*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!

We were referred to these guys when our usual movers (Aloha Moving) had a truck break down last minute. They were courteous enough to refer us to another mover who was available and set up the time for us. Advantage Movers called within 10 minutes to confirm booking and details. They sent out two of their movers who were very fun to work with, and were very efficient. They immediately got to work, didn’t drag ass, and were totally on top of their game. Our only complaint was that one of the movers sweat all over one of our microfiber chairs (haha) but it’s totally fine, we just cleaned it with fabric cleaner. Overall, these guys were FAST and efficient. They were courteous and completely acknowledged that we only wanted movers for 2 hours due to budget, and they worked their asses off to do so and did it in perfect time. We would definitely go with these guys again. I feel bad we don’t remember our movers’ names, but they were two young guys….Will update if I find out who they were because I highly recommend this team.

Tom is a great guy(owner) and helped me with my move quite a bit. This is a great locally owned biz and I recommend it highly. I have used them several times and plan on using again. Trustworthy and honest.

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.

My husband and I recently moved out of our two-bedroom condo and decided to hire movers since we had heavy appliances (including a front-loading washing machine on the 2nd story — yikes!). After checking Yelp and seeing Advantage Moving’s 20% off coupon for Yelp customers and good reviews, I figured they were at least worth getting an estimate. The estimate came in very reasonably, and we were sold!
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!

I’ve moved many (too many) times in my life – and every time I moved, I had some sort of issue with the moving company. So I called Advantage Moving with some trepidation. But my fears were alleviated at once: they were pleasant and patient with me on the phone, answered my questions openly, and didn’t try giving me a runaround.
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!

I have moved 6 times, all over the Austin area, and each and every time I used Advantage. They are not only reliable and dependable and reliable, they are efficient and fast. The crews are always friendly and extremely helpful, which as a single woman I deeply appreciated. The online quotes were accurate, and there were never any hidden or surprise fees or charges. Moving is always stressful, and knowing I have a company I can rely on always makes things a little bit easier. I highly recommend anyone who needs a moving company call them. You can count on the price, rest assured that they will show up on time, and that your belongings are safe in their hands. Thanks, Advantage! You’re the BEST!!

These guys have gained a loyal customer. I traditionally am very leery of movers, after having a truly awful experience with another company some years ago. (Long story; suffice it to say, they busted up most of my kitchenware) Anyway, moving on to this company:
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.

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.
