They were prompt and very responsible and professional. Thanks to Mason, Jack, and Collin.Christy SmithChristy Smith ★★★★★ Using UNIMovers for our daughters college move was a great experience. Our movers were on time, responsive and very helpful. The set up was quick and the team was very responsive while scheduling and confirming. Worth every penny to not have to move the large furniture ourselves. You just hire two movers. This does not include a moving vehicle or dolly’s just FYI.William Goblirsch Jr.William Goblirsch Jr. ★★★★★ We had Lane and CJ help us unload on very short notice and it was a godsend. They were both incredibly amiable, professional, and proactive. They were careful with our stuff and did not shy away from the work. I would hire them again in a second.Kathy JenkinsKathy Jenkins ★★★★★ Drew and CJ performed professionallyat all times demonstrating their commitment to getting the job done!S SS S ★★☆☆☆ I appreciated two movers. They were nice and pleasant college age kids. The problem was lack of job training. It took 4 hours to move 570 sqft one bedroom items with myself and two 17 years old helping to carry. I think that the loading them to the truck took most of the time. When they left there were still several items left in the previous property so my daughter's boyfriend needed to carry them the next day. With twice more expense than the estimate, I reached out the company, but they just insisted that there must have been something beyond normal expectation on our side that delayed the process such as unpacked items or unusual amount of items. Neither of them was our case but the company treated the conversation as done. If you are willing to pay $700 for your one bedroom move, there are other companies who promise to get it done around 2 hours. I tried to save money by choosing UniMovers but ended up paying as much as other full service moving companies with 4 hours of carrying many stuff ourselves.Ryan MRyan M ★★★★★ Austin and Dexter were very professional, fast, friendly, and strong. Definitely recommend.Stephanie EvettStephanie Evett ★★★★★ Gabriel and Dexter were excellent! Quick to load the truck and very careful with all of my stuff. Couldn’t be happier with the help they provided!!Denis KeeganDenis Keegan ★★★★★ Drew, Carter, and Sam were incredibly patient. Place in heaven is assured for all of them.Linda BruchLinda Bruch ★★★★★ The guys did a great job! They were careful and not in a hurry. I would recommend UniMovers highly.Joe RayJoe Ray ★★★★★ Steve and Ethan were awesome. Arrived on time, professional, and courteous to a fault. As a 22 year Navy veteran, I have experienced many moves. These guys rank at the top of professionals who have helped me move.Carsten ClarkCarsten Clark ★★★★★ Drew, Sam Lauren, and Dexter were friendly and extremely efficient. They got more done than we expected. Thank you!Green DevelopmentGreen Development ★★★★★ Steve and Austin did a great job!ni3nam3ani3ni3nam3ani3 ★★★★★ Austin Federrsen, Joshua Jackson and Stephen Chostner were very thorough, professional, and timely.

The two young men sent were polite, knowledgeable, and hard workers. I estimated the job would take at least three hours. They finished in less than 2.5 hours.

Thank you again for all the extra effort today!Julie JohnsonJulie Johnson ★★☆☆☆ The "leader" got lost and was a half hour late getting here while his helper who was on time waited for him. He was grumpy when he did arrive and was NOT pleasant to be around. He announced on arrival that they were on a tight time schedule. He did as little work as possible while the helper did 80 percent of the work and was very pleasant. They finished a half hour early but he charged for the full 2 hours even though he was only here for an hour. If I were his helper I would be looking for a different job.. Had I not had a previous excellent experience with unimovers I would not use them again.js_loader
