Velocity Movers was GREAT.. The company Velocity Moving & Storage is great. My move was a one bedroom apt from 2 flights down to one flight up house. These guys quoted me a price which was half of all the others. The representative told me about all the costs involved and my price and he was actually LOWER than what was quoted!! I was surprised so I tipped well. These guys were quick, efficient, early for the move and good guys. I have moved from NYC to DC and the move was done and completed in 9 hours from start to finish!
We can honestly say that I have never had a more pleasant moving experience than I had with Velocity Moving. Dan was my foreman, Sean and Ben were his them workers.I had to move out of two third floor walk ups to an elevator building, with quite a few boxes and a substantial amount of furniture in each apartment. These guys did the entire move in 4.5 hours. I spoke with Dan about how I might pack my stuff myself, but I might want to have them do a full pack. He gave me three different prices, depending on what I chose to do. In the end, I packed my stuff, and saved myself $90.00. But they movers were honest people, really friendly, and didn't break a single thing. I have huge paintings, too, My stuff arrived in Santa Barbara CA within 9 days from pick up and i was in contact with the driver from the day he departed from NY.
I was able to use my credit card, and there was no requirement to tip.Highly recommended. If you need to move in New York, choose Velocity Moving. They were $700 below any of their competitors that I called, too.
We called this company for a last minute move and was very happy with their prompt response to our needs.They were really wonderful. They were very fast in wrapping up all the furniture, they even put everything in the rooms we wanted them in after the move. They were friendly and super nice guys.
This moving company came highly recommended. Oliver was the representative i have been dealing with and he was very professional throughout the process.
The movers were on time, uniformed and knowledgeable.
I end up paying $60 less than the estimate i was given, and tipped the guys for their flawless job.
STAY AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY!!!! They are the most unprofessional bunch of people you will ever deal with. Guy was in charge of my account and his motto is :you only need to know what is most beneficial to them". The minute any problem arose his answer to everything was: "its in the contract" Oliver is the worst. He has absolutely no idea what customer service is. He is rude and arrogant. And A liar. Sheldon, who I thought was the best of the lot turned out to be no better. The workers who pick up and deliver your items are very professional and polite. If I only had to deal with them it would have been a pleasant experience. Do yourself a favor and keep looking for another company to handle your moving and storage needs.
Fast, nice and professional. what more do I need!! – We used Velocity Moving for a move in September and the company was great. We got Ofer himself to come in and do the quote, which was quick and painless and he stuck to it. (It was also much much less - like 30% less -- than one of the other top rated folks. Ofer just a star - pleasant as can be, professional and charming. They checked in, answered questions, quickly, very responsible. Moving is stressful but they really made the day off very easy. The team also executed on the move in about 2-3 hours only. LESS time than they said, which meant a lot to us as we have little kids we wanted to settle and get to bed at decent hour after crazy move day. Yes, there were some very minor nicks (one wall, a scuff on one piece of furniture) but given the amount of stuff etc. they were excellent. We would use them again in a heartbeat.
The best moving company ever! – Velocity Moving- Reliable dependable and affordable.
I have experienced several movers because I have to keep on moving because of the nature of my job. But I have never seen such perfectionists till date. I am talking about the movers of Velocity Moving & Storage. They were actually more concerned than me about the move, which was great to see. They came just on time and they were well prepared for the move. They began the work without wasting a single minute and they were fast and accurate. I am sure that they came with a plan and they did fantastic. They were so keen to perform and as I said before they were more concerned than me. I also found them very competitive as far as the price was concerned. I do recommend them.
I started out my journey Velocity - Long Distance And Local Moving Company really enthusiastically, as they were highly recommended by people other yelpers. I was impressed by the courtesy and professionalism of the receptionist. I called on Friday asking for a Monday appointment, and she accommodated me. But things went downhill from there.
My mother called me on Monday morning, frantic because one of the movers, the foreman I think, was bitterly complaining about the conditions. He was upset because there was dust and he felt he was not adequately prepared to be in the environment. He proceeded to disparage his boss, saying that the owners didn't care about him or his health. He immediately told my mother that the move would require more than three hours and movers, and that he was not going to be able to complete it. He continued to complain and have an attitude for the rest of the move. At one point he was in his truck while the other two movers were unloading, and when my mother approached him, he responded that he would not charge her for the full hour.
I am not disappointed that the man took issue with the conditions, but rather his handling of the situation. Had I known there would be that amount of dust and mold, I would have notified the dispatcher. Instead of incessantly complaining and giving my mother an attitude, he could have explained that the conditions necessitated special protective equipment and more men, and therefore they would have to reschedule. He could have handled it professionally, not like an insolent 5 year old. My mother offered him a mask and gloves, yet he continued to whine. I even called the dispatcher and apologized for not having properly prepared him, and he said that his men were prepared for "anything." Clearly, they were not.
I emailed the receptionist, and she responded by politely brushing me off and never fully addressed my concerns. While the physical move went fine, the added stress of the complaining employee left my mother harried and stressed out. They did not complete the move, and we hired another company to come back later in the week --- I will never use them again.
Extremely helpful and flexible. – We used Velocity Moving to load a container for my upcoming cross-country move. Arrangement was made at the very last minute and by the way the movers were extremely helpful and flexible, and also very thorough in describing the service and other costs. We did the move on a Saturday, in the afternoon at my request because we were still packing. The two movers were courteous and professional. The owner called me the next day to check on the service, making sure everything was satisfactory and asking for suggestions on how they can improve. A quality operation! Thanks Velocity Moving Moving.
Careful and efficient movers!!! – I decided to hire Velocity Moving from the the house I'd lived in for almost four years and I was just moving down the street so I wasn't fully packed. I was super stressed out and exhausted.Not only did the crew moved my stuff with great care they also quickly took some open boxes and other random stuff that I thought I was going to have to do after they were done. The movers kept asking me how I was doing with everything and if there was anything else they could do to make things easier for me. I felt really cared-for, which is unexpected from movers (and maybe even a little weird, but whatever, it was awesome). They even helped me with some hard-to-reach light bulb chores at the very end. Thanks Velocity Moving..
