Outstandingby

The three gentleman that moved us could not have been nicer or more professional. They took great care of our possessions and were very quick. They stuck to there job and finished within their allotted time. Can't say enough about them! They were sure that they put everything where we wanted it and there was no damage. They also asked us if we needed anything else moved while they were here. I could not believe how stronger they were. They lifted things alone that I would have needed two people to do. If we were to move again ( I hope not) we would use them in a heartbeat.
The three gentleman that moved us are are Shyhem,Juan and Larry.

Amazing job!! by

SVJ moving company was amazing. I spoke with Derlene on the phone several times trying to nail down a move date and time and her customer service was great. They were able to fit me in their schedule Sunday morning on short notice. They gave me a window between 9-12 and I received a phone call from a gentleman about 10 AM saying that they were 15 minutes away. When they got there all 3 gentleman were extremely polite and professional. They moved everything I needed efficiently and were very careful not to go over the time I was quoted at. They unpacked everything and even helped me unpack the items I loaded into my car. Great job and couldn't have been happier!! They exceeded my expectations.

Slow but decentby

The movers arrived mostly on time. They were professional but very slow. They went 1.5 hours over the quoted time. They didn't read the room labels on the boxes and just put things wherever they felt like it. The price was decent even with the extra 1.5 hours. 1 guy seemed to do all the heavy lifting and work,while another just loaded the truck and the third guy didn't seem to do anything

STAT AWAY!!! Worst company ever!!!by

Movers were supposed to arrive in the morning, instead arrived at MIDNIGHT and did a terrible job. Company was extremely unprofessional and lied to me all day about when they'd be there and what was happening. NEVER dealt with ANY company before this bad!!!!

The worst moving companyby

STAY AWAY FROM THEM. They deserve zero stars....the worst. They moved us 2 years ago and I should have posted this back then, but just this weekend I found another issue with them. We are missing items. The latest is all my music CDs. We have a few hundred. I guess they figured we wouldn't notice. There are so many things wrong with this company. Stay away. They are unorganized and broke, scratched many things - they are sneaky. Also as I mentioned, we are missing things. They also left items behind at old house and left it a mess. Pizza boxes and pizza in kitchen cabinets. I had to hire someone to clean up after them. We filed a complaint, but didn't get any where. They dont care. Just stay away. The absolute worst!

The A-Teamby

They sent the A-Team of Kendall, Kyle, Solomon, and Don. Arrived on time and moved everything within an hour and a half and then unloaded in less than an hour. They were the best I have ever used and would recommend them highly. Just make sure to request the A-Team as they will not disappoint.

They are okay. by

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

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

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

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...
