Moving from Austin to NY was an easy move thanks to Elephant Moving. One call to their office and the next day I had an in home estimator who took an inventory of all the items in my home and sent me an estimated price for moving door to door to NYC. The estimate was accurate, and the price was one of the best I found in the market. Great crew at the pick up and very helpful crew in NYC (it's not easy to move in this town!). My shipment arrived on time as scheduled with everything in the same shape as before shipping. Moving 1800 miles to NYC was easier then any local move I ever did before. Smooth job Elephant!
Just moved with these guys a few days ago. The experience was great. They were so polite and helpful and moved our whole house very quickly and without damaging things. They also gave us these great pavking crates for free with our move. We packed our whole house into them and it was sooooo much better than using boxes like last time. No scrounging for free boxes or buying a bunch of boxes to use just once. No tape, and I didn't even use much bubble wrap for the glassware. I have a new baby and was not in the mood to mess with it. The crates were so sturdy looking that I hoped there wouldn't be too many broken dishes despite my lazy packing job, and much to my delight only 1 bowl cracked. Obviously you should use something to pad the glass stuff, but even with the bare minimum my stuff did fine. Unpacking was super fast and then they came and took the crates away. I am never going back to cardboard boxes again! The movers were awesome, there were a bunch of them, 5 I think, and they got everything moved into the new house by dinnertime, which was great because by then I was exhausted and would not have lasted another few hours if it took longer. Wonderful move experience and wonderful moving company. I already recommended them to 2 friends who are moving soon, and I will use them again if I need to move in the future.
Wonderful experience moving with Elephant Moving! They were really great through the whole process. The office staff was always very helpful and responsive. Maria was so nice and always answered my questions and provided tons of information before the move. The price was vey reasonable and comparable to other quotes I received. I chose them because the service their office provided was very good and I felt comfortable using them to move me cross country to Maryland. The guys who moved me were professional and did a good job when they picked up my stuff. I only had to wait a couple of days for delivery once I arrived in MD about a week after they picked up my stuff so that was convenient and I was glad to have furniture as those first couple of days on an air mattress were less than ideal! Everything a it to the new akce with nothing missing or substantially damaged. I would certainly recommend them to my friends.
When arriving to unlock 6 storage units delivered into the care of Elephant, I discovered one had been opened and the latches and lock latch obviously tampered with. My possessions had been removed then carelessly reloaded - resulting in missing and damaged items. Complete denial of any responsibility, no response to calls, and blamed it on the way I packed the items at origin. Since I had taken photos of each pod before locking them up for shipping - i knew exactly the position of my items. It was obvious that my items were now in different spots in the pod. Suggest being very cautious when / if dealing with this company.
Amazing job! We used them to pack and move our large home in Lakeway. They were flawless. They came out to give a quote. They gave us free crates for packing so that was a nice bonus that saved some money on the move. They had large crews of packers and movers so that they only needed a day to pack our large 4 bedroom home and a day to move it all to the new place. Everyone we dealt with was great; office staff was helpful, packers were careful, movers were professional and efficient. Even after a long day I felt like they were still making the effort to make sure everything was being handled carefully. We have a lot of big, heavy furniture and wood floors everywhere. Nothing was damaged (other than a few small scuffs, much less than I expected for such a large move). I have already recommended them to a couple of my real estate clients and I have no doubt that they will do a great job! Seriously, use these guys! They are a great local company that really knows how to work well.
Very friendly and helpful staff. Reasonable price, very professional service all around. I moved out of state to MD. The guys who picked up were great and did a wonderful job packing up all my stuff. The delivery driver was very pleasant and hardworking and I didn't hear any complaints at all about my ridiculously steep driveway that I'm sure was no fun at all to haul furniture up. They didn't damage anything and got all my stuff to me within about a week. Would use again for sure.
Beware! This company is plenty friendly until something happens. Johanna was always available to answer questions UNTIL a few of our furniture pieces ended up with damage. The first time we talked to Johanna about our damage she said 'no problem, we'll take care of your claim'. Well, we have tried repeatedly to get resolution to the issue. Johanna is never available no matter when we call. The receptionist always takes a message but no one returns our calls. We have been fighting this since June of 2012. Eight months! We are ready to take this to court.
Wonderful people! I was absolutely thrilled with the service they gave. The office staff was nice and helpful. Maria was super nice and was able to answer all my questions (or find out the answer and get back to me very quickly in a couple of instances). She was able to provide me with some of their rental crates for free so I didn't have to buy boxes. The movers were friendly and eager to please. While they unloaded they always asked me where I wanted something and never just dropped things wherever. They even let me peek into boxes that I forgot to label so that they could put the boxes in the right place. That helped me so much because I had back surgery last month and would not be able to move the boxes between rooms myself. I will use them again without a doubt when I need to move next year. Wonderful job all around!
Get someone on the phone that is knowledgeable. My piano arrived with 2 very large scratches and many stuck keys. It was NOT in this condition when it was sent to storage.
Fantastic moving company. They moved me from Austin to Dallas. The service we got was out of this world. The sales rep was super helpful, the movers were awesomely professional and polite. They did not complain about anything and did a fast and fabulous job of getting the move done. I was especially pleased with the crew foreman, Jose, who really seemed to know the best way to move everything that came along. He and his crew took excellent care of our nice things and even our baby grand piano looked like a simple task when they were working on it. Without these guys I don't know what we would have done. We were so worried about the move because it was a lot of stuff moving several hours away but everyone at Elephant Moving made it super simple and so smooth. Could not have asked for a better service. Two very enthusiastic thumbs up!
