MY BEST MOVE EVER!! – I have moved many times in my life. This past weekend I had Michael's movers come by pack me up and move me to Brookline. I had over 5 bedrooms and was completely unorganized. Bryan came by to see what I had and he spent nearly 2 hours with me. He gave me a quote, which was not the cheapest (and oh were they cheap) they were in the middle. After 3 long days I can amazingly say there was no damage to any of my furniture, I give them high praise for a job well done.
Awesome movers!!!!! – I am very happy that i chose Michael's movers. You hear a lot of horror stories out there so i made sure to do my homework. Michael came to my house and gave me a proposal which included everything i needed. He was very good and patient with all of us. Then on moving day my team had arrived, and boy were they great!!!
Thank you for everything!!!
AVOID AT ALL COSTS!! – I have moved several times, and never have I had a more miserable experience. This company is terrible and will take advantage of you every step of the way.
We were moving from Boston to LA and the most important factor for us was our 6'6" grand piano. As I am a pianist, it was crucial that my piano not only get there safely, but also quickly as I needed to practice as much as possible. We were assured that it would take no more than 15 days and that they had moved pianos dozens of times.
Both statements were lies.
The movers did not arrive until a month had passed. Each time we called they made up some new excuse. When the movers finally did arrive, they had absolutely no idea how to move a piano. If I had not been there, the piano would have broken, as they tried to put on all three legs at the same time, and then pivot the piano on the front left leg. This would have snapped the leg off into several splinters since it was not designed to support such weight. After it was finally put together, they complained about moving it into the proper place in the room. They "assembled" our bed, but minutes after they had left, the bed frame snapped apart: they only put in two of the 12 screws required for assembly.
Furthermore, as they require cash upon delivery, they were to call us 24 hours in advance of their arrival. They instead called us 45 minutes before they arrived, and we didn't have the necessary cash on hand. But as it was a Saturday, all the banks in town were closed. It took us several hours of running around LA before we could find somewhere to cash a check.
I have since tried on several occasions to address these issues with the company, but they have yet to return my call (a month has now passed).
Regardless of your situation, this company is not worth the risk. I only hope they don't stay in business much longer.
Amazing movers!!! – We searched for a long time for a reputable mover. We did this internet thing and got inundated with phone calls and non stop e-mails. Then our friend had just moved with Michael's and told us we had to use them! Fortunately we did and were very impressed with the crew> They packed us a day earlier and movedd us the next, we could not have been happier!!Thank you again everyone at Michael's moving and storage.
Great Movers-Best Price-Fantastic Service – I had a difficult situation of moving and storage at different locations so I used them twice within a few months. First Michael?s gave me an estimate which was significantly lower than any of the competitors I contacted. I dealt with customer rep named Tristan who was exceptionally courteous, attentive, and understanding of my situation. He responded immediately to any questions or concerns that I had. It wass a pleasure working with him since i had a lot of anxiety. Each time I moved, the crew was polite, efficient and worked very quickly so my actual cost was lower than the quote.
I would recommend Michaels to everyone who is moving.
Misleading Estimates and Given Run Around for Complaints – Michael's Moving and Storage(Michaels Movers) is a giant rip off....They gave me an estimate for 700 and a bill for 1900....Movers worked extremely slowly, charged for blankets/pads...disassembled and reassembled small pieces of furniture to delay move as long as possible
When I complained, they gave me the run around including wrong phone numbers and names of people to speak to...I am taking them to court, but you should avoid them entirely
Hard working guys – It was a very long day, Michael's crew worked like a well oiled machine. The team was very profesional and polite. I was very impressed with how they wrapped my things. The team leader, John also took it upon himself to reorganize all of my furniture. i could not have asked for a better move. Thanks to the team at MICHAELS!!!!! 5 big stars!
Top notch movers!!!! – We recently used Michael's to move us to New york, We wanted to let everyone know what a great job the sales and moving team had donefor us. This was not an easy move by any means, however Michael made it as stressless as possible. The quote was accurate, because i did ask alot of questions as well.
great moving service--I highly recommend! – I hired Michael's to transition into my new Cambridge home. I was really pleased and I really do recommend these guys. As a collector (and shopaholic:) I have tons of very fragile things and also things with a lot of both sentimental and monetary value....the movers did an excellent job with my things. My estimate was very accurate and the salesperson was so nice and polite...he explained all the charges for the move and was so patient with all of my questions and concerns. Further, the movers were totally professional and everything went smoothly and *quickly*. I hope I won't be relocating anytime soon, but if I do, I'm calling Michael's...they make what is usually a very stressful experience quite pleasant.
2 Great moves in 2 weeks – We contacted Michael's over 1 month ago, my mother was moving to California and my fiance and i were moving across town. Michael personaly came to my mothers house to give her a quote. he spent well over an hour with her and said they could pack and unpack her whole house. He then came to my house and gave me a quote to move to another city. Both moves were done amazingly well, stress free and most professional. My mother had lived in her home for over 25 years so you can imagine the amount of stuff accumulated. I cannot say enough good things about Michael and his staff. Thank you guys!!
