I needed someone to move a piano for a project in home, and I needed someone right away. The customer service was able to fit me in immediately, even though they had a busy schedule! (Unfortunately, I wasn't able to use them as we were able find someone who could move it sooner. HOWEVER, I will definitely use this company in the future.) Love the customer service!

I want to thank you and the Better Moving Team for the best move I have ever had. Since this was my fourteenth move, I do not give this praise lightly. Each and every team member was well-spoken and polite, taking the time to introduce themselves individually before the work began. During the pack, they were considerate of my home and my belongings, making sure to consult with me about anything that required special handling. Throughout that first day, your men worked diligently, cooperatively and cheerfully. They also worked smart. The decision to move the boxes and smaller furniture into the garage for pre-load made the actual move day as efficient as possible. Already confident that this was a well-oiled team, I was even more impressed during the actual move. Much of our furniture is from Indonesia, which not only means that it is large and unusually heavy, but it also means that it comes apart like a complex puzzle that requires dismantling and reassembling in a very specific order. I have had to babysit more movers than I care to count as these pieces have gone from house to house. This was not at all the case with your team, who handled this uncommon furniture deftly. In the same way that my furniture is like a puzzle, moving it into my new, significantly smaller home was also like a puzzle. Each piece had to come in in a specific in order to maintain clear passage and navigable rooms. This meant that many things had to be staged outside before being brought into the home. As with all other aspects of the move, the men did this carefully and cheerfully. In two rather full days, I never heard a cross word or complaint. While feeling good about the actual move is important, the final proof of a successful move is in the pudding. Not a single piece of furniture was damaged, nor any of my large paintings or the 6’ marble slab table top. Likewise, everything that has come out of boxes is in superb condition, the best example of which is my daughter’s extensive doll collection which has usually required some level of primping after a move. I don’t know what your guys did, but not a single hair was out of place and the dolls dresses were not even wrinkled.

Editorial review from Citysearch

Just a quick note to follow up my phone call last week to A Better Moving Company. As I let Caleb know, we recieved the cat post last week. Thank you for your efforts in getting it to us. Our cat may not realize the effort you put into it, but we certainly appreciate it! Now that everything has arrived(including Building materials ordered through Tampa), we're ready to begin building our home and are pretty much settled in. I wanted to take a few moments to thank you for your service and follow up. It was a huge ordeal for us due to the cross-country move, leaving family and friends, and dealing with adjustment to a whole new culture. We are glad that we made the decision to hire A Better Moving Company to handle the move. We could not have done it without your services. We especially appreciate your communication and concer, Steve. Whenever I had an issue to discuss or left a message at the office, you always returned my phone calls promptly and responded to the concerns or questions. In the midst of the chaos and emotional trauma on our end, we are truly grateful. Take care and good luck!

Editorial review from Citysearch

I loved this company! Everyone was so helpful and positive. They made moving fun! Special kudos to Jeff and Jeremy, they arrived at my house, assessed the situation and suggested I request a third mover to help unload. I'm glad I took their suggestion! Jason made my upstarts unload much smoother. I looked at several companies, and yes they were a little more, but we all know you get what you pay for! They were worth every penny! They were friendly, clean and patient as I changed my mind about where things should go!

We appreciated the care your movers took

We appreciated the care your movers took in handling our belongings, many of them being antiques and very heavy. When I first contacted your company I was unsure of the actual date our move would occur. Your office was very flexible and cordial in scheduling the actual date of our move (which changed several times due to the closing of escrow). A special thanks to the movers for their strength and endurance in tackling such a large task. It has been a pleasure doing business with your company and will be highly recommended to friends and acquaintances as the need arises.

Professional Job Well Done

I want to commend you and your company for the professional job you did for us. I especially want to thank two of your employees, Jason and Daniel, for the professional, respectful, and courteous job they did in moving our personal belongings into our new house. Not only did they work very hard, they did not scratch or break anything and they completed the job in the minimum time. When they finished they offered to move the furniture around the rooms to wherever my wife wanted it placed. What service!

Could Not Be More Pleased

Last week I was moved by your company. I want to let you know what a great experience the physical move was. From beginning to end of the actual move, my husband and I could not have been more pleased. The move began with three gentlemen. Dave assisted with the beginning of the move, so my experience was mainly with Jake and Terry. They exceeded my expectations. They were well organized, punctual, careful, hardworking, courteous, and pleasant. Their teamwork was incredible and they really made us feel like they cared about what they were doing. I spent years in the relocation industry overseeing corporate moves, and these gentlemen exhibited some of the best work in terms of handling the move and customer service skills that I have seen. As a person who moved, I loved it. As a business person, I would want these guys working for me if I were in the moving business. Sending all my thanks to you.

Great Service

I am writing this to let you know about the great service I received from your moving company. Clint and Marcus did a wonderful job and I really appreciate the caution they took when moving our things. Moving to a new house can be very stressful experience, but the service they provided made the experience much more tolerable. Although we moved more than a month ago, we finally feel settled in and are enjoying our new home. Thanks again for your wonderful service.

I will most certainly use your company again

I wanted to take the time to compliment two of your employees, Greg and Rob, for the excellent service that they provided me during my recent move. I was under extreme pressure to get moved within a very tight time frame due to an ex-husband that was not too happy about our divorce. Greg and Rob worked quickly and efficiently, while being courteous and friendly. They eased my stress level tremendously. I will most certainly use your company again when it comes time to move from my current residence. Rob and Greg represent your company well.

Shouting JOY

Thank you for the best moving experience we have ever had, and we've had more than enough experience moving including 7 major and minor movies in the last 5 years. We've used other local and national firms over the years. None came near to your performance.

Your team, Kyle and Jeff, were wonderful. They were skillful, careful, energetic, and efficient. They were so cheerful throughout that it was a positive pleasure to see them around. Not that our move didn't present them with many problems. We presented them with lots of problems; furniture too big to fit through a door, frail pieces of furniture and irreplaceable antiques, packed boxes galore, and lots of breakables, everything that can make a move difficult. But everything arrived safe and sound (which has never happened to us before) and in the place we wanted it to be.

At the end of the day we felt like shouting for joy because this move was so well done. In all our previous moves we had goods damaged, things misplaced, and were left in in a state of semi-chaos. Not so with your work.

I'm recommending you to all our friend, and I would recommend you to anyone who wants moving to be an efficient, organized, and satisfying experience.

Appreciate the service!

Your company moved me on November 19, 2004 and I am writing to let you know how much I appreciate the service I received from John Parker and Rudolph Braswell. They did the work in the time you estimated for three men and were extremely helpful and friendly.

I will not hesitate to recommend your company and those two men to any friends or acquaintances.
