Olympus Moving and Storage wer...

Olympus Moving and Storage were great from start to finish.

I found Olympus Moving and Storage on Google when I was planning my move to Portland, OR. The reviews were positive, so I decided to take a chance. I was glad I did! David Kline, my relocation specialist, did a great job of helping me plan the move, explained the process, and provided an accurate estimate up front that I felt was very fair. We planned my move as a two-day move, with a pack on the first day and the actual move on the second.

On the packing day, the packing crew arrived, professionally dressed and on time, and after introducing themselves and my signing the paperwork, they immediately got underway. I was totally floored by how quickly, carefully and expertly they could pack a large filled residence. What would have taken me a month, they did in about 8 hours. Everything got plenty of protection, padding, paper, blankets, stretch-wrap, etc. They were conservative and used extra materials to make absolutely sure my fragile stuff would be safe. Every single one of them worked nonstop, diligently and with care. I don't know where they get the energy - I was exhausted just watching them! David had arranged in advance for my couch, bed and a few necessities to remain unpacked until the next morning, so I didn't have to get a hotel room. Very cool!

On the moving day, the same crew arrived, again professionally dressed and on time, and they got underway immediately. Again, I have no idea where these guys get so much energy. Without any delays, they carefully and expertly moved all my boxes, furniture, everything out to the truck, and were very careful in the way they packed the truck and where they put certain extra-fragile items. In no time at all, my residence was empty!

When Olympus Movers arrived to my new house, the moving crew did an expert job of moving all of our stuff in. They set up the bed, helped us move furniture where we wanted it, super helpful!

I felt that everyone at Olympus Moving and Storage did a very professional job throughout my move, from David Kline, who managed the whole experience and made it go smoothly from beginning to end, to the crew lead, who expertly led the packing and moving, to the packers and movers who packed and taped and moved the boxes and furniture. This was a hassle-free, relaxing and pleasurable move at a fair price - an extraordinary value.

I can't say enough good things...

I can't say enough good things about Olympus Moving and Storage. I loved the efficiency of this company.

This was my first experience using Olympus Moving. From my initial phone call, to the estimate visit, to the actual moving day this was a great experience start to finish. I rarely write reviews, but Olympus Moving and Storage actually earn and deserve the praise on this site.

On the day I had the pre-move estimate visit scheduled, a last minute conflict arose for me during the appointment time. When I called Lisa Bell (the estimator) about the conflict, she was able to move around Adam`s schedule that morning to arrive an hour earlier. That was a huge help, otherwise I was going to have to take another morning off from work to be there to meet him. When Adam came to my apartment for the estimate, he not only gave me a very fair "not to exceed" quote but he also offered some helpful packing advice like how to pack bedding in empty dresser drawers and the cheapest places in my area to buy good boxes (Home Depot). Adam was polite and professional and knows his stuff. I felt immediately like I'd be in good hands if I went with Olympus Moving and Storage, though I did shop around before committing.

One thing you realize is that after a week (or weeks) preparing for a big move by the time moving day arrives you are physically exhausted. It makes a huge difference to have people come in who know what they're doing, can pinch hit if you need a random item packed that you forgot to do yourself, and who are self-supervised to get the job done quickly and carefully. Leo is an excellent team leader, and his team was great. After the move was over and the truck was leaving, Leo even thought to tell me at the very end which box they packed the remote controls for my TV and stereo in case I wanted to find them quickly.

All in all, moving is brutal and exhausting but these guys made it much more bearable. I will definitely call Olympus Moving again the next time I move.

We were so impressed with Olympus Moving and Storage!

We were so impressed with Olympus Moving and Storage!

Luckily our daughter who lives in New York had used Olympus Moving to move both her business and homes. She gave them the highest recommendation, so we knew we would be in good hands and we were.

Everything from my first call to the last box moved went smoother than expected. Olympus Moving and Storage are prompt, right on time. They are amazingly fast and courteous. They are very helpful finishing all the things you think you've completed and realize you missed some items. Olympus Movers are very patient, as I'm sure they are used to dealing with a lot of the same issues all of the time.

We have no complaints, only praise. They are very professional in the office as well. The contact person we dealt with was Samantha Bazile and she kept us up to date from start to finish. She emailed us detailed costs, lists of things we needed to do to be sure we were ready, and reminders of the upcoming date. Her follow through was amazing.

I would recommend Olympus Moving and Storage to anyone, especially to newcomers to the area who can rest assured they are in very good hands. Honest, hardworking company that does what they say they will do. We will use Olympus Moving without hesitation for our next move.

Thank You Olympus Moving for making our move so easy!!

Okay, Olympus Moving and Stora...

Okay, Olympus Moving and Storage were amazing! These guys are the BEST!

I've moved countless times in my life and have used many different moving companies both local and nationwide. I've had my share of bad service from a moving company and I had a few good experiences too, but nothing compares to the great experience I had with Olympus Moving and Storage.

I filled out the estimate form on Olympus Moving and Storage website first and did a guesstimate on my inventory as they have a form where you can input the number of armoires, desks, lamps, tv's, etc. It is a little hard to do as the terms don't always match up to exactly what you think you have, but if you search and take your time you will find something close enough. If you inventory correctly, I guarantee everything will be easier. I missed a few things along the way and ended up paying $100 more which was very acceptable given the situation.

I got an email response in about 10 minutes and then Natalie called the next day to confirm the date and time and the entirety of the move. I then got two more email follow-ups and a call a day before conforming again. I was confident going in that it would be easy, but there is always that random panic that you will get the lazy crew on your given day.

The truck showed up right on time with four guys. If you want a crew that will work the whole time until the move is done and never complain, ask for Kayum's crew. They figured out the options for remaining items that did not fit anywhere, they took care of getting the clothes in the wardrobes and the moved, without one complaint, question or disturbance, a lot of furniture down two flights of stairs and into the truck. Packing and loading took about 7 hours and unloading took about 3 hours and not one time did any of the movers do anything that was not completely helpful.

I could not have been more satisfied with my move and the moving crew and company as a whole. In order to have a great move though, you have to generate a rapport with the movers, interact with them and be nice in my experience. I would be shocked if you were disappointed with Olympus Moving and Storage.

We were very impressed with Olympus Moving and Storage. These guys are amazing.

Olympus Moving and Storage was absolutely amazing and I would recommend them to everyone reading this. Moving is difficult and finding smart, professional, efficient, reliable movers is not an easy task. We hired Olympus Moving after much research.

Natalie responded to the form I filled out on their website, where I wrote a long detailed list of everything being moved! Her response was quick with an estimated quote that ended up being right on the money. Their rates were fair compared with other movers in the city. We signed up immediately!

Any questions or confirmations we needed prior to the move were answered fast. The moving crew leader, Don, called me the day before the move to go over all the details. On moving day, the 4-man crew (Don, Josh, Roland and Daniel) were absolutely wonderful! They were VERY hardworking, careful with my furniture and boxes, and extraordinarily capable when it came to taking apart/reassembling furniture. Some of the furniture was big, heavy, and awkward. Olympus Movers were able to maneuver it in the hallways and elevators very well and I imagine it was certainly a challenge. There were also issues with my building's loading dock, etc. that they handled very well. It was an impressive operation and we couldn't have been more relieved to have such a fabulous experience with Olympus Moving and Storage.

This is an excellent and honest company! Five stars all the way. We would hire Olympus Moving again in a heartbeat.

What a great experience! They saved the day! They saved the move! On moving day, they saved my life!

What a great experience! They saved the day! They saved the move! On moving day, they saved my life!

I should say that I didn't completely believe the reviews on the internet because they seemed too good to be true. But my need was urgent and I just called Olympus Moving and Storage. Now I know why Olympus Moving are 5-star movers - they truly deserve it!! In the past few years of hiring various services I have worked with only one or two companies who were really 5-star worthy. Olympus Moving and Storage is one of them.

We were moving from a 4 bedrooms townhouse with some heavy furniture's to another 4 bedrooms townhouse. Most importantly we sold our home so it was very important that there are no damages to the home we were moving out of. Finally I only gave Olympus Moving (David) two days notice to schedule the move.

In the both the old and new places Olympus Movers have ensured that there is not a single scratch to the walls nor did they break or lose any of the stuff being moved. All of the movers were really nice, professional and polite gentlemen's.

This is the email I wrote to the owner of Olympus Moving and Storage:
"Thanks for all the super-quick turnaround time, working with me to fit me in at the last moment while not making me feel that you are doing me a favor. it has been a very long time since I have see this level of service. kudos to you. beyond the fact that I am happy with the excellent job and attitude of your employees and your comapny I also foresee that you are going to be very successful in your life. your service is an epitome of what business used to stand for in this great country - customer is king - unfortunately not all businesses are paying attention to this all important factor"

Olympus Moving and Storage are an exceptionally efficient and professional moving company and one I have/will recommend to anyone I know.

I just used Olympus Moving and Storage and they were awesome! I would highly recommend them to anybody needing a mover.

Olympus Moving and Storage came to my rescue! After a terrible experience with another company I called Olympus Moving in desperation. Samantha was my business partner on the phone and for the estimates and arrangements. She was fantastic! Excellent communication with me by phone, emails, and/or fax.

Leo and Josh and Eddie were my truck crew and I could not have had a better experience. They not only continued with excellent communication, but also took considerable care with my possessions. Olympus Movers were on time, fast workers, considerate, and personable. I would recommend Olympus Moving and Storage to anyone for any move. They made a normally difficult experience pleasant and easy!

I also referred my sister to them who was also happy. They are a great team to work with and truly do the job right! This was probably the best move of my life. God Bless you and your company!

The move was flawless. Can't recommend Olympus Moving and Storage enough they were AMAZING!!

I just read a couple negative reviews and I couldn't disagree more. I can't say enough good things. I had a pretty complicated move this summer. I was moving from Bloomfield, NJ to Memphis, TN, but I also had some things in storage. I've never used a moving service before, but I thought I would try one for this move.

I got reasonable quotes from Olympus Moving and Storage for different options and also some tips to help facilitate my packing/unpacking. The moving day went very smoothly. While one truck moved items from my old place, a diffrent truck picked up items from the storage facility and DELIVERED EVERITHING to my new place in TN. Olympus Movers handled everything like clockwork. After watching them moving a few items out of my old place, I knew I didn't have to worry about them being careful. Everything was wrapped in blankets and you could tell they were really experienced. They were also really courteous and even made sure to not track in dirt on my carpet by placing tarps down. They also put things in the rooms where they belong.

Best part: when my bedroom was being set up, I couldn't decide which way I wanted the bed to be. The moving guys saw the indecision on my face and gladly offered to try different orientations and gave suggestions! A moving guy with knowledge of Feng Shui! What more can you ask for?

We filled up two trucks (having three kids will do that to you) and nothing was broken or damaged. By state law they have to provide some insurance and that process scared me a bit.. because they have a minimum.. which I thought wasnt enough.. but luckily I got the right team.. and that makes one of the most stressful things a family can do (did i mention three kids under 5) an extremely pleasant experience.

I would definitely recommend Olympus Moving and Storage for your move. These guys worked hard! I can't say enough good things. The move was flawless. Can't recommend them enough! Worth every penny.

First class moving company. What an excellent service!

Olympus Moving and Storage is a FABULOUS company. Not only in their customer service top-notch (a rare find in today's marketplace) their concept is stellar.

I am SO HAPPY I decided to go with Olympus Moving and Storage. I was debating a number of moving companies, some were more expensive, some were less expensive but did not have websites or reviews. The mixed reviews made me nervous about Olympus Moving, but I eventually decided that most people only review when they are really happy or really upset with an experience, and moving companies probably get more of a hard time than other kinds of companies.

My wife and I used this company to move out of our 3200 SF, 5 bedroom/4 bath house in October. Olympus Movers showed up on time, were very friendly, and I was amazed at how fast they were able to get things done.

We have a lot of antiques and fragile items that they did an outstanding job securely packaging and transporting for us. Not one item was broken, scuffed, or banged up. They provided all of the packing tape, blankets, and boxes for items we didn't have packed already like our big flat screen TV's, large mirrors, and glass decor. The wardrobe boxes they supplied made it easy to pack up our clothes in just a few minutes, which was really nice.

Olympus Movers load up at our previous house and unload at the new one, including furniture set up and putting the labeled boxes in each room! Olympus Moving and Storage worth every penny!!! I would definitely recommend this company to anyone who wants to take the worry and stress out of moving.

The experience with Olympus Moving and Storage was pleasant and professional from start to finish - 5 Stars!

This was one of the best experiences we've ever had with a moving company. My expectations were exceeded. I was very nervous about moving as I had some expensive pieces and some newly purchased furniture. I hired Olympus Moving and Storage based upon feedback I received from friends.

I spoke to Samantha who was very helpful and quick in getting me a price quote. On the actual moving day Olympus movers were right on time. The piece I was most worried being moved, a VERY LARGE solid wood armoire, was handled quickly and easily. Most of the pieces were wrapped in moving blankets to avoid damages. A bonus was that they were able to move my dressers with the clothing still in them - they simply wrapped them up with the plastic wrap and the blankets to secure the drawers.

The whole experience was easy and hassle free. Great company with great people to work with. From start to finish, everyone was wonderful. I would absolutely recommend them and will be using Olympus Moving and Storage in the future. The experience was pleasant and professional from start to finish - 5 Stars!

WOW. This seriously was the best moving experience of my life.

Olympus Moving and Storage are awesome. I've moved twice with them and they actually put a smile on my face on moving day. Not an easy feat.

Let's start with the scheduling. So easy. I love that you can make a few clicks on the online checklist and they get back to you with a quote and an offer to set up your appointment within a day. Drama free. Love it!

On to moving day. Well, before moving day they call to confirm. On the day, they call to tell you when they're coming. Olympus Movers take care of everything, where they're going to put the truck, how to block the doors, etc. Maybe moving companies do this all the time but my previous movers from Craigslist, a couple of teenagers wearing flip flops, never took care of that stuff. It's nice not having to worry about the basics. They also shrink wrapped all my furniture and art work so it didn't get scratched. Olympus Moving even made sure to set everything up at the new place and double checked when they were done to make sure I didn't want help moving anything. Awesome!

Both times the Olympus movers handled all of my items with utmost care and have never broken a thing.

The best part about Olympus Moving and Storage is that the guys genuinely seem to enjoy what they're doing and they have fun together. They're having fun which kind of makes you feel like you're having fun. They never even blinked at having to carry all my stuff up two flights of narrow stairway. I don't know how they do it and make it seem like the best time ever.

I love Olympus Moving and Storage. The worst part about the whole experience was when they left...and left me with all these boxes. WAAAAAAAAHHHHH!!!!

Great service and value. Olympus Moving

Great service and value. Olympus Moving and Storage blew me away with their hard work and efficiency.

Let me start by saying that I hate it when other people touch my furnitures, especially because much of it is irreplaceable. I was referred by a friend who highly recommended Olympus Moving and Storage, and I was a little skeptical at first. The stress of moving is enough to make anyone crazy but Olympus Moving were amazing!

Olympus Movers were courteous, professional, and knew what they were doing. I had them come out and pack for me the day before my move day. They brought all their supplies with them for packing. They didn't seem to overcharge for the supplies they used. I was actually very pleased with that part. 5 stars for that! I've had other moving companies bring their own stuff but charge 5 times the usual cost.

I have nothing but positive things to say about my experience with this company. Would definitely use Olympus Moving and Storage again as they seem to be one of the better if not best moving companies.

Olympus Moving and Storage were amazing. They where recommended to me and I loved them... Can't go wrong with them. I was really pleased with how my move turned out. They were fast, showed up exactly when they said they were going to, and moved everything without a problem. Absolutely nothing was misplaced or damaged, and they even disassembled my bed so I could move it.

I have used them twice now and both times Olympus Movers where amazing and awesome. Great price and great service. Anytime I move in the future I will use Olympus Moving and Storagre. I highly recommend them to anyone for moving and I have recommended them to my friends and they loved their service.

I was very impressed by Olympus Moving and Storage.

I was very impressed by Olympus Moving and Storage. Before making a decision about a moving company, we asked many people for recommendations and Olympus Moving and Storage continually was mentioned as the best. Before making our final decision, we did get other estimates. Olympus Moving quote turned out to be very reasonable compared to others.

Don, Anthony, Keith and Daniel showed up on the dot and got to work right away. They were very careful with all of our household items and they made moving a piano look extremely easy which just can't be so. These men are professional movers plus they are courteous and friendly. All of the furniture’s arrived safe and sound and was put exactly where we wanted.

We will need to move more items in a short while and we will definitely call Olympus Moving and Storage again. Can't beat the careful packing and moving and the price! Plus, this is a local company with a long history.

I received a recommendation for Olympus Moving and Storage

I received a recommendation for Olympus Moving and Storage from a coworker, who was really happy with their services. Setting up my moving day appointment was quick and easy. I filled out the online form and Samantha called/emailed very soon after to finalize the details.

On moving day, Keith called about 15 minutes before they were scheduled to arrive to let me know they were on their way and would be there on time at 9:00 AM. Keith and his crew were friendly, efficient, and very careful with our belongings. I have several antique and family pieces and I didn't feel worried at all that something was going to be damaged. Once we arrived at the new place, they carefully unloaded everything and put the items exactly where we wanted them. They even moved a few things from our garage into the upstairs bedroom. What impressed me most was the extra care Olympus Movers took to make sure none of the furniture was damaged. These guys were that good!

All in all, I was super pleased with both the service and price that I received from Olympus Moving and Storage. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who is planning to move!

I have moved dozens of times and I can simply say that Olympus Moving and Storage are THE BEST movers I have ever worked with. We had them move us to San Antonio, TX and they were great. Olympus movers worked very quickly, efficient and were gentle with our things there was no damage to our stuff. We'd definitely recommend and will use them again.

Do not EVER use this company. ...

Do not EVER use this company. Natalie and Lisa will be nice to you until you agree to use them but they turn on you real fast. I suspect the reviews on line about this company are all added by employees. If you look at them they are all the same dating back and they are all copied and pasted to different sites. I had them set up to move me and they never showed. Yep you read it right, no show, no call. When I called to ask about it and set up a new date they actaully started yelling at me and blaming me and hung up on me! This is a VERY unprofessional company. I wouldn't have even given them 1 star but the site makes you rate at least that. If you want a good reliable, reasonable and honest company call John at Old City Movers. They did everything they said and more. They showed up on time, were polite, quick and friendly. They did not waste any time to get more hours or rack up any bills.

I love these guys

In the past 7 years, I have had 2 local moves and 3 long distance moves, so I have a lot of experience with movers. While I never had a bad experience, our move with Olympus Moving and Storage was the best experience ever!

All 4 movers on the crew were educated, clean and professional looking, and were focused on customer service. This customer service focus permeated the entire experience, starting with Sam, the sales manager.

He gave me a quote and it was a little higher than some of the other quotes I had received. Because I felt more comfortable with his professionalism and Adam`s knowledge when he came out to my house I choose to go with Olympus Moving and Storage.

When Olympus movers came out to my house, they all greeted me like an old friend and immediately gave me confidence that they knew what they were doing. Not only did they literally run throughout the day, but they also wrapped everything, stacked it carefully, and planned out how they were going to fill the truck to prevent shifting. After placing all of the items in the new house, they took me from room to room and gave me the opportunity to have them move things to different locations if it didn't look the way I thought it would.

I love these guys and I highly recommend Olympus Moving and Storage to anyone that needs a mover!

VERY PROFESSIONAL AND HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

VERY PROFESSIONAL AND HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

I made several calls and emails to various movers. Only three returned my call and emails. Out of the three responses, one mover didn't work on Sunday and was booked on Saturday. I sent in a follow up to see if they could send me their available times so that I could juggle my schedule to accommodate them. I never got a reply. The second company called me back but during the conversation I just got an uneasy feeling. The third company that followed up with me was Olympus Moving and Storage. Wow what an improvement to the other company responses I had gotten. Olympus Moving were easy to work with and were very responsive to me in both my phone calls and my emails. I signed Olympus Moving paperwork and waited for them to show on Sunday morning.

The day of the move arrived and the Olympus Moving and Storage moving team of Dong, Allen, Keith and Josh showed up on time and were READY TO WORK. I walked them through my apartment and gave them instructions - and they were off and running. Everything made it to the truck in a reasonable amount of time and all of the boxes marked as breakable were ALWAYS taken care of.

The move into my new place was quick and efficient. Again all my instructions were followed and when Olympus Movers had questions they would ask.

Overall I felt like me and my stuff were in good hands at every stage. Everyone was professional and friendly. I would definitely recommend working with Olympus Moving and Stoareg and if I ever need to move again I will call them first.

Choosing Olympus Moving and St...

Choosing Olympus Moving and Storage was the best decision I ever made.



I could not be happier with the experience I had with Olympus Moving and Storage. From the office to the moving crew - this is a very well run operation. On the day of the move 4 movers and truck arrived. All 4 of the movers were completely professional and worked really hard all day long. It took them 9 hours which may seem like a long time but some of our previous moves have taken nearly twice as long - I guess we have a lot of stuff. Olympus Movers were all very upbeat and friendly all day long. They seemed to genuinely enjoy their jobs and they were awesome at it. I've had movers before that grumbled about anything like having to take doors off the hinges, boxes that aren't taped up well, getting creative to fit something over a staircase..... all of these things happened and not once did anyone act like it was a problem. It was always an attitude of "not a problem."



Oh, and not one single thing got broken, not one scratch or scuff on any of the walls or doors in the house we moved out of or the house we moved in to. That has never happened before. I really could not have asked for a better crew to take care of my family on such a difficult day. Olympus Movers were pure professionals and I recommend you hire them for any moving needs. Your money will be worth every cent.



These guys will definitely be my "go to" moving company for any future moving needs and I have recommended them already to 2 friends.
