Long Distance Movers is far and away the best moving service I have ever used. They helped me move a few weeks ago and to my surprise, it was a seamless transition. I have hired several moving companies in the past and there always seems to be some sort of issue. That was not the case with Long Distance Movers. Also, everyone I worked with throughout the process was extremely friendly and kind. To say the least, the price for my move was more than reasonable. Really nothing bad to say about this company. I would definitely recommend their service to a friend

I started researching a few different movers for my move from Scarsdale to Phoenix. I reached out to a few different companies in the area without receiving an ycalls back before finding Long Distance Inc . Bob was very helpful from the beginning and was very flexible as a didn't have firm dates or times yet, all I knew was it was going to be within the next two weeks. I didn't want to get jacked for last minute pricing so I was put at ease when Bob let me reserve my service and fill hm in on the date later. my new landlord isn't really good at communicating so I ended up having to call bob with only a few days notice. I though for sure it wouldn't happen but bob assured me it wasn't a problem. they schedule my move for wednesday and got here on time. When the guys arrived they didn't even end up needing a shuttle which I previously that they would. the delivery crew was great and I couldn't have been happier. one of my particle board cheap book cases was a little scratched up but I've had it since college and I knew it wouldn't last. the insurance company was easy to deal with and I'm a happy customer.

My parents hired Long Distance Inc to move the last of my stuff from their home in CT to my house in wisconsin. from the beginning the representatives did a great job at coordinating everything between my parents and I. you’d be surprised how hard it can be for us all to get the time to go over everything together (especially being in different states). Sammy did great at keeping us all on the same page. I personally wasn't at the pick up but my parents said the guys were nice and weren't sketchy. the delivery went smooth. I had specific requirements for delivery because I live in a high rise and had to reserve elevator time. their driver was good about giving me both 48 and 24 hour notices and arrived within 15 minutes of his scheduled arrival time. they loaded everything into the apartment and after buying the guys lunch they offered to help me hang TVs free of charge. great service. my parents don't know how to use the internet but promised Sammy they'd write a review so here I am! thanks guys.

Our ultimate goal in finding a mover was to get a reasonable price with no headaches. I heard a million bad stories about movers and luckily for us it wasn't a terribly tough decision to make after speaking with both Sammy and his supervisor patrick at Long Distance Inc . Sammy got me out a reasonable price and was able to give me a military discount. when abraham and his crew got here they got right to work and did pretty much everything for me. we were moving a 2/2 apt from jersey city to brooklyn so it was a pretty quick move. they got here this morning, loaded and packed it al in their truck (which was surprisingly clean my husband adds) and drove to brooklyn. we needed a little bit of in between time so the crew went for lunch and met us in brooklyn where they placed all the furniture into the house. overall the guys delivered on their promises and left me and my husband happy.

The radio jingles have probably been stuck in my head for 6 months! Naturally when I found out I was getting promoted at work and thus moving to san francisco I decided to give Long Distance Inc a call. the radio ad was for a 100$ packaging credit which was nice to have. I didn't have to pack my TVs which was nice because they're huge. the price was reasonable but what ultimately won my business over was 1. they are a local business and 2. because of how friendly they were. It’s nice to be able to leave the hard work that I don't want to do to the professionals. my overall ratings: Customer service- 10/10 these guys went above and beyond. I work in corporate finance where my hours can last all day. my items were to be picked up and held for 3 weeks before coming out to san fran. the only problem was that I was going to be working in san fran during those 3 weeks and was worried they wouldn't be there to answer the phones by the time I finally got home. chris gave me his cell phone number and told me not to hesitate calling after hours. this was great for me. I could call after work when it was 10pm on the east coast and still get answers. you don't get service like that anymore. Operations- 8/10 the guys on the ground were great. definitely very efficient and thorough. my items arrived with no scratches in the original condition I left them in. Pricing- 7/10 these guys weren't the cheapest quote I got but also not the most expensive. overall experience- 9/10

I've used several different moving companies being in the military. The first two of my five moves were coordinated directly by the military. the last 3 I found companies myself but always went with one of the big guys (allied or united). I came across a Long Distance Inc ad on the internet and decided to see what they were all about. the ad took me to some reviews and information about the company and I liked the fact that they were family owned and operated. my folks run a family business and they out perform all of their big name competitors so I was inclined to give Long Distance Inc a shot. I wasn’t let down. from start to finish you could tell they guys are both knowledgable and personable. they were always available when we had questions about packing and the price didn't go up on the day of the pick up. they were honest with us from start to finish. A lot of companies (especially movers) lose sight of that today. they don't put the customer first. Long Distance Inc ISN’T one of those guys. thanks Michael for all your help and hope to use you guys again (but hopefully I'm done moving for a while lol).

Long Distance Inc hooked it up! these guys were great. I could definitely tell Bob had been doing this for a while. he answered every question throughly and got straight to the point. I hate pushy sales people which is ultimately how bob earned our business. no sales pitches no sales tactics just thorough and to the point. the guys who came to the home (Alex, abraham, and izzy) were great too. cool guys, reminded me of some of the guys I hangout with. got everything done in 4 hours. got my items in 6 days from start to finish. Good looks guys!

Long Distance Inc was the best. My sister lost her job and needed to move down to Texas with us until she got back on her feet. Her husband recently died and threes no way she could physically load a truck herself. We had a budget truck reserved and were looking to hire some labor for the day when we came across Long Distance Inc. after talking with Sammy for a little we realized that it might just be better to let the professionals handle everything from start to finish. Apparently not a lot of reputable companies will offer day labor so you get stuck hiring random people from craigslist. My sister has a lot of expensive items and craigslist people definitely weren't an option. After learning this we just decided to contract with Long Distance Inc for a full service move. It was a huge relief to our family. I know its Sammy’s job to be polite but honestly it seemed like he was sympathetic to our situation and his overwhelming kindness went a long way for us. The experiencing on the g round was no different than the interaction I had with Sammy over the phone. Alex and his crew were timely and thorough. It was impressive. They even got our items here in less than 10 days. Would use again!

Last time I moved I decided to go with a cheaper option (or at least on option that was quoted cheaper). What I learned with that first aver was a lot of these movers give out bait and switch pricing. I experienced it firsthand. This time I didn't want to deal with the headaches and screaming from the brokers and scam companies. Long Distance Inc price was a little bit higher but I knew it would be the cheapest and easiest in the long run. The service I got from Long Distance Inc was leaps and bounds ahead of the company I used last time. Well worth every dollar.

I got a $100 off packaging coupon from a friend who used Long Distance Inc. she had moved twice and said this company was the better of the two. My move was pretty standard- nothing crazy- a couple sofas, some TVs, beds and dressers. I would've done the move myself but the price with Long Distance Inc seemed reasonable enough. The packaging coupon covered the boxing of some fragile paintings, a mirror pack, and boxing my 65 inch TV, all things I probably would've messed up. In terms of value id say the price was a 9/10 and the service 11/10.

I picked Long Distance Inc because they were able to answer questions without giving me the sales pitch. I talked to so many movers that sounded like the salesman who stand at the kiosks at the mall. they wouldn't stop calling! Larry at Long Distance Inc was professional and straight to the point. he explained to me why they were better and didn't waste his time down talking his competitors (like the rest of them do). everything went smooth from start to finish and it couldn't have made my life easier. moving is the worst; these guys made it a little more manageable .

Long Distance Inc was top notch! I crashed my uhaul driving from vermont to florida on i295 in NY. they towed the truck to a body shop and I was out of luck. I started my new job in two days and u haul wasn't really being helpful in getting another truck. I googled moving companies seeing if anyone could help and came across Long Distance Inc . I spoke with Michael who did a really good job at helping me out. they were able to get to the body shop the next day and move everything from the u haul into one of their trucks. they had an expedited option and were even able to get it to florida in under 48 hours. these guys are a life saver. I wish I could do more than just write positive reviews.

Pricing: the guys were reasonably priced. they weren't the cheapest but also weren't the most expensive. we know that you get hat you pay for and felt for the price Long Distance Inc was probably the best value. they didn't have any hidden fees or surcharges either (the other companies probably id). so from a total cost perspective they were probably the cheapest. quality of service: the guys were very professional. I wasn't expecting guys to show up in tuxedos but also didn't want any questionable characters in my home. we have two young children so that was a concern of ours. there employees were friendly and professional. I was told they were a family company and that really showed. overall the value was great and the service was great .would recommend using Long Distance Inc .

Long Distance Inc was an overall great company. there was some misunderstanding when the crew got to our house but the owner himself came to our home to get everything sorted out. ill take partial blame for not getting my items ready before they got here and had to pay extra for packaging but whats important is that everything got resolved. just a friendly word of advice make sure your items are packed before they get there.

Greatness at its finest. 5 star Service. My rep LAWRENCE was great. He was very upfront and honest. We went through my entire home inventory to be sure we got an accurate price. Other companies I spoke with just wanted a ballpark number of boxes to get me off the phone. Even with the full inventory, he came out lower than the other companies I talked to. They showed up on time and delivered on time! Great to work with!!

Outstanding service will recommend to all my friends If anybody has ever moved, you know finding a reliable, honest company is a very hard thing to do. I spoke with several companies. Their phone reps were pushy and seemed to just want to collect payment and rush on to the next caller. My rep at was the total opposite. He was patient and walked me through the entire process. He wanted to be sure that we covered everything so there were no surprises come moving day. Would highly recommend them if you want someone friendly!

LDRG was great. thanks again guys for a sweet move.Best price! I called several companies to move me from New York to Georgia. Everybody else gave me a much higher price than Long Distance Inc. These guys showed up on time to pick everything up and the delivery was as scheduled as well. They were awesome!

These guys are the best! Hadn’t been to my old storage unit in about 2 years. Hired them for the job. They were able to meet my sister at the unit to get a visual assessment and then guaranteed the price. On the day of move they went through everything and boxed all my knickknacks and memorabilia. I couldn't leave my sister to do all that herself so I'm glad they were able to do it- well worth the little bit extra.

Lawrence was our representative and did a great job from start to finish. He spent 35 minutes talking with me and then called my wife to go over everything with her. I had no idea threes so much to go through when choosing a mover and prepping for the actual move day. If Lawrence wouldn't have been there to answer questions for us we definitely wouldn't have done certain things (like packing the TV and lamps) correctly. Sons dispatch supervisor, Blake, was always available with questions on delivery. I get that threes a lot of moving parts and it was great to have open communication until our items arrived.
