They are okay. by Jaime W.

When the movers arrived, they were very nice and came within the time frame given. They got everything out of my apartment rather quickly and into the truck. However, when it was time to go to the new place, they took a smoke break, which was annoying since they are worried about the 3 hour time frame I was given to move. My new place was not the easiest place to move into, but my bed set has damage. I also did not like that the head guy kept saying "we will take care of you if you take care of us". In my head, just do your job and if I decide to tip you I will. By the end of the move I was not happy.

My Moveby Timothy G.

They were on-time, on budget, and completed the job in the exact amount of time they said it would take. I did an accurate inventory ahead of time, which I'm sure helped. The guys worked very quickly and so far it appears there is no real significant damage to any items. They didn't even use hand-carts, they just loaded everything by hand and did it very quickly on a hot day.

Efficient and helpful but small damage to wallby Kristen F.

Juan and his crew were very cordial and efficient. They were very creative to find ways to move a heavy and wide sofa. However, some damage occurred to the wall when moving items into the new house. SVJ were very supportive, apologized and said would pay for the repair.

Will destroy valuable electronic itemsby Jessica B.

I used SVJ to complete a move about 60 miles. Four movers showed up within the window I was told they would arrive. First they broke my freezer door when asking to store their beverages. I didn't think this was a big deal - just a crack on the handle, which I decided I could glue or replace. We did a walk through and discussed little nicks in furniture that were already present. They then told me that they had the proper padding and packing materials and would pack my electronics, no problem. They were experienced movers and would make sure that everything was secured properly.

The movers were VERY quick. Took a couple smoke breaks, but overall the packing proceeded much faster than I expected. They did have to put several breakable items into my car for transport since they didn't have enough "blankets" and padding prepped in the truck. The head guy in charge was very loud and cursing/mean to the other workers through the loading and unloading process. He manned the truck and loaded everything accordingly while yelling and demeaning the other works. This was also quite evident during the UNLOADING process. I was a little embarrassed that my new neighbors would here this yelling (cursing) that was happening in my driveway.

During the unloading process, they brought everything in and set up my 52" flatscreen LCD plasma TV on my TV stand in my new family room. They reassembled furniture (incorrectly and put new holes that weren't previously there on my daughter's bookshelf/dresser). There are scratches in my furniture that weren't there previously, but I (again) figured, it's a move, little things happen and I am not one to nit pick every little detail. At that point they were in such a rush to leave. I mean really rushing to get out of there. They left at 4:45PM and the first thing I did was plug my TV into the wall and turn it on. The plasma screen (on the inside so it was not noticeable until it was turned on) was completely cracked. Badly. There is no repairing this so my $2300 is damaged beyond use/repair. I contacted SVJ at 4:53PM that same day to report the damage and sent over pictures and a description. They said because I had signed that all was delivered off the truck and assembled in my new home, there was nothing they could do and they couldn't prove that the damage wasn't caused my something I did after the movers left. I was like, it has been 7 minutes and NO ONE even touched the TV other than these movers who ASSURED me they had the correct packing supplies and knew how to package plasma TVs (since they did this for a living and it was no charge to use the SVJ packing materials). They were definitely just throwing stuff around and although I suppose I was impressed with their quickness, they were not careful with my more delicate stuff. I submitted a claim form and gave them all the info about how there was literally NO TIME to plug in the TV before the movers left, they were in such a hurry. They said the best they could do (which is obviously not true considering the other furniture issues I let go and the unprofessionalism that I let go) was $60 (which is $0.60 on the pound for my TV). I researched the make and model of my TV and the value at time of damage/loss was $1350. Please take a look at the pictures below and do not make the same mistake I made...

Great move - Super Quick and Efficient!by Sarah P.

My move was a short one - only about .5 miles down the road. However, the movers showed up about 20 minutes into the 2 hr arrival range (which was perfect) and only took 40 minutes to load up the truck. They were fast and efficient - no damage was made to my furniture. While their appearance needed some work (possibly matching company shirts?), they were super friendly and listened to what I was suggesting. The only thing that I was slightly disappointed in was that my quote was for 3 guys and 4 showed up (which made the cost go up slightly). Relatively cheap move and it really took a lot of the burden off of my shoulders. Would recommend to a friend.

Fantastic jobby David T.

The move went very smoothly. I was very surprised by the professionalism of the gentlemen. I had an afternoon move scheduled and didn't get any kind of confirmation on when the move would be which was a little concerning. Once it was all turned over the movers though, they did a fantastic job. They took extra special care to make sure there was no damage to my stuff or my home. If I had to move again I would use them.

A very good easy experienceby I. W.

The whole move went well. It was a local move in Philly. They were polite careful, accommodating and pleasant.

Unexpectedly Pleasantby Samuel J.

Three guys came to move me. They were all really lovely, worked hard, and made me laugh. They were straightforward, easy to talk to, answered questions and worked straight through to the end.

Quality Moving at a Great Priceby Mitch P.

The move was timely without accident or incident. The movers knew their job better than us being moved and made it look easy. There were some last minute changes they adapted to with no added cost and were on their way before we knew it. The appearance issue was no problem. We didn't hire them to dress up and we'd rather have these guys than to pay for a uniform.
