Geraldine was delightful and very precise with her information. She had good suggestions and was very patient and helpful. The movers were punctual and very careful with our furniture. They were extremely courteous and pleasant to deal with on a crazy day! We are in a rental and must move again when we close on our new place. We plan to call Murphy Moving once again. We have no desire or reason to call another company.

John C Murphy Moving & Storage Reviews - 3
First, I'd like to say the movers were on time, respectful of our property and easy to deal with. My issue is with the rates they charge per pound, after we had our initial estimate which was a lot more than we wanted to spend we decided to move some items ourselves in a rental truck. The weight of our move was reduced by 1/3 yet the charge was reduced only nominally. What I didn't know is they charge more per pound for a smaller move than a larger move so while we did save some $ it was no where near what I was expecting. I contacted them on this issue but got no where other than "I misunderstood"; there was nothing to misunderstand as I was never informed by them. Also, they were unable to deliver on the date I wanted but rather a few days later which didn't pose a hardship but they charge you extra storage for those extra days! Doesn't sound right to me. I will never do a large long distance move again.
19 days late to deliver our belongings. We were told ahead of time that we could be compensated monetarily for every day late, until I called them on it, then they changed their mind and so no, even the though the owner of the local branch had told me it in person. It was just me and a two year old. We couldn't afford to eat out three times a day, we didn't have a washer and dryer and only had a few outfits with us. It was a nightmare. Calling everyday and everyday got the same runaround. I chose them because they were a little but higher than the others so I thought, I'd get what I paid for. NOPE. Do NOT recommend them. Then when they did show up, apparently the driver hires locals to help him unload. Well one of the guys ended up knocking at my door three weeks later with his daughter wanting to know if they could come in to play. WTF??????? I ended up having to call the police. Really, don't they do any kind of background checks? These people now know where I live and everything I own! My next move I rented a 26 ft Uhaul with a car trailer and drove the 8 hours myself. Never will hire a moving company again.
