Very Professional

I never hired a moving company before. I checked online, read the reviews from many sites, (Berkeley Parents Network, Yelp, etc) North Star moving came highly recommended and it all turns out to be true.
My moving team lead by Guy Hacyma (foreman), Jose and Carlos. Showed up on time, in fact early. They got down to business right away, Guy explained the contract to me,very carefully. They asked questions about the important pieces of furniture, Everything was wrapped and padded. Its all went very smoothly. The unloading went smoothly as well, they couldn't have been more helpful or polite. I highly recommend them for your move.

I will definitely use them again

Finding a mover was a headache the last time I moved, so I wasn?t looking forward to it this time, a co-worker of my neighbor used Northstar and said they were very good, so I called, was impressed with their service over the phone, and I was blown away on the day of the move. They were quick and very friendly, even my dog liked them ? he parked himself on one of their blankets so they just let him keep it for the day. They moved our two bedroom townhouse across town with not a thing broken. I don?t plan on moving again anytime soon (just thinking of packing everything again can trigger a panic attack?) but when I do, I know who to call.

5 Star Mover

My experience with NorthStar started with a clear quote with itemized cost. And it's exactly what I paid at the end with no hidden cost or extra charge.

On the moving and delivery day, Oscar and the crew are courteous, professional and efficient. They arrived on time, protected my furniture with great care and finished the job quicker than I expected.

The closest street to my new apartment's entrance is a no-parking zone, the movers were willing to park on a side street and carried the items for extra distance with no complaints.

I was moving from northern CA to southern CA. And among all the moving companies (including the more well-known big names) I inquired, NorthStar is the only one that offered second day delivery. And they kept their promise. It made the move so much easier. They are also very responsive and kept me informed along the way of all the information I needed.

My whole experience with NorthStar was an absolute delight. Transitions in life could be emotional, and what NorthStar added was a truly ""moving"" experience. I will definitely pick them the next time I move.

Did extra but didn't charge extra

I had a local move within the City. They came and moved me from the third floor (stairs only - no elevator). They showed up on time, were pleasant, and actually moved weights (ie, pumping iron weights) without complaint. Didn't charge a dime extra. I would use them again, and recommend them when someone says they're moving.

Successful Move

This is to thank Northstar and its workers for moving our stuff successfully from the storage area to our new house. We were impressed by the professionalism displayed by the team of Jaime, Pablo, Tal and Nir. They worked hard despite the inclemency of the wet weather. Their labor was much appreciated.

Pleasant Movers

Yesterday, December 5, I moved from Palo Alto to San Francisco. Never having moved such a volume of possesions before, I was anticipating a nightmare of a day. But the two gentlemen NorthStar sent to assist me in this endeavor, Craig and Liron, made all the difference. Besides being extremely careful with everything (both my furniture and the two apartments) they were efficeint, professional, polite, and all around a pleasure to work with. I could not have asked for a better team.

THE BEST!!!!

NorthStar did an outstanding job of packing and moving my things. Quite frankly I was expecting some things to be broken. However, to my surprise not one thing was broken and everything went as smooth as could be expected. I had approximately 15,000 lbs. of items to move. I am very impressed with NorthStar and I would not hesitate to utilize them again for my next move. All of the young men who assisted in packing and loading were very hard working and polite.

GOOD MOVING

About a month ago, on Sep 12, we hired NorthStar Moving to move our belongings from our house in Van Nuys to the Highway Storage place in Santa Clara.
We would like to express our sincere thanks and appreciation for the professional work that was carried out by NorthStar team of workers. In particular, we would like to mention the four NorthStar workers: Roy Ashual, Moshiko Haziza, Guillermo Molise and Roberto Mendoza for their very dedicated service.
Besides being good natured and helpful, they worked very well and took good care of our personal effects. We would definitely refer them and NorthStar Moving to any of our friends who are looking for a good moving company.

Great movers

I wanted to thank the Northstar Moving group for a fabulous job. We hired Northstar Moving on August 4th to move us out of two storage units and where we were staying to our new home in Los Angeles. I had gone through surgery on the 2nd and was in no condition to move around a lot. The Northstar Moving team was great. I slept in while my husband met them at the first pick-up point. Then they came to the 2nd and that is where I met them. When we arrived at the new house they found something for me to sit on and I set in one place in the garage telling them which room the items went. They were great. They had wonderful personalities; I have never had so much fun moving (even if I was in some pain).
Northstar thank you again for the great team and customer service.

Northstar Is the BEST!!!

My family and I would like to extend all of our gratitude to Ram, Gonen, and Yoni for a very successful moving experience. Our move from the San Francisco Bay area down to San Diego could not have gone any smoother. First, we wish to express our gratitude to Ram for all of his courteous and helpful advice. The information that he provided was central to us choosing Northstar to do our move. He was always honest and upfront with what the charges would be and the timetable for the move. The movers came exactly when promised, delivered all of our belongings on the exact date that we wanted, and did an excellent job. Both Gonen Shlomo and Yoni Simmons were very efficient, friendly and professional. Indeed, they went the extra mile to make sure that all of our belongings were packed carefully and efficiently. When it appeared that there was too much stuff for them to handle alone, they quickly called for extra help. Gonen and Yoni were so careful in wrapping the furniture and all of our fragile items that ABSOLUTELY NOTHING WAS BROKEN OR DAMAGED. I would use them again, without hesitation. Gonen and Yoni deserve our highest compliments. Indeed, the whole Northstar team, with Ram as the point person gave us excellent service at very reasonable rates. Ram's immediate attention to all of our concerns made the whole moving experience a lot less stressful. I know that if we ever need to move again, I will call on Northstar without hestitation. We will recommend Northstar to our friends.

first time using a moving company.............

I wanted to drop a note to thank NorthStar for the wonderful job they did in moving me. This was the first time I have ever used a moving company and what a pleasant surprise it was. Because of the delay in getting my notifications from our Homeowner's Association regarding the date I was required to move and from the construction company regarding the move back date, I realized that I was rushing them to do everything from estimates to scheduling the move date, out as well as back into my home. NorthStar's flexibility and extra efforts on my behalf were much appreciated. I have no hesitation in recommending NorthStar to any of my friends and neighbors.

Great Movers

I want to say many thanks to Gonen, Roy and Jose for their quick and professional service in moving our home Saturday, August 4th. This was the easiest move that I've ever done. NorthStar is a great company.

Incomparable Service

This review comes in praise of NorthStar's crew, who moved a partial load of household goods for us on August 14, 2007. These men were prompt, courteous, and careful, and they were remarkably efficient. Our load included a piano which had to be moved up into the second-floor living area of our home--NorthStar's team planned carefully and executed the lift with remarkable strength and care. We have just now completed unpacking, and we have detected no damage to any of our goods! We completed the first phase of this move a few weeks ago, with another mover. That move was with an undersize truck and inadequate provisioning, and it cost nearly double the estimate. This previous disastrous experience helped us to appreciate the quality of the service we received from NorthStar. We will recommend NorthStar to our friends and neighbors. Thnaks for an excellent job!

Nothing But Good Things About NorthStar

The three movers on the NorthStar crew (crew chief Omri, Jose and Doron) arrived in a timely fashion and proceeded to work diligently throughout the day at my house. They were kind, smart, motivated, and my neighbors and I enjoyed having them there. I also thought they took great care and pride in providing me excellent moving services. Coincidently, a good friend is moving his home from Brentwood to Berkeley and happened to ask me if I could refer him to a moving company. I immediately suggested NorthStar based on my positive experience with Joe, the moving crew and the entire moving experience. I know a lot of customers are quick to write and complain when things do not go well, and I am not sure if people write to say ""thanks, things went well,"" but my experience with NorthStar was ""Thanks, things went very well.""

A Commendation For A Great Job Done

NorthStar moved my furniture, furnishings and belongings within San Francisco on August 13 ad 14, 2007. I want to take this opportunity to commend this company on its efficiency and quality of work. Too often, I imagine that they hear nothing but complaints but it seems appropriate to give a commendation when earned. The young men who came to do the work, Gonen, Lior, Shai and David were courteous, efficient and very careful in their work. They did an excellent job. I would not hesitate to recommend NorthStar to others who may need moving and storage services.

Quick and Efficient Movers

This note is a letter of thanks and gratitude for the professional and courteous job performed for me by NorthStar's moving team on July 7. The team, led by Sammy Carol, included Ron and Shimon. They were quick, efficient, and pleasant to be around. I would definitely consider using them and recommending them for other moving needs.

Overall Great Company

On July 2, NorthStar moved my belongings from Berkeley to Albany on one of the hottest days of the season. They were remarkably friendly, swift, cheerful and hard working. This was my second move with NorthStar, as I used their company in April to move my business from San Jose to San Mateo. This former move utilized 4 men and 2 trucks. The individuals involved, (sorry I don't remember their names) were also very hard working and efficient. Any future moves or referrals asked of me, will be directed to NorthStar.

Amazing Service

I take great pleasure in saying very sincerely ""Thank You"" for the very professional job NorthStar did in moving my entire household from San Francisco California to Fremont California. I would also like to express my profound respect for the quality of work your two emloyees, Eric Aldana and Jose Samoya accomplished during this move. Each and every piece of furniture and article was handled with the utmost care and consideration. I have recommended your moving company with much enthusiasm so that other homeowners can also benefit from a moving company which from my personal experience I believe to be one of the best in the industry. Kindly convey my appreciation to both Eric Aldana and Jose Samayoa. Best personal regards and thank you for your professional courtesy during the entire move.

Very Satisfied Customer

I am writing this letter to let you know that you have a group of employees who are absolutely outstanding. Starting with the first person we spoke to who arranged our move, through the men sent to do the actual moving, all were exemplary. The group of men who packed and delivered our goods were wonderful. They were absolutely professional in the way they handled our possessions, wrapping everything so very carefully that we did not have one item broken. Both my wife and I were impressed, not only with their ability to do all the things that was necessary to get the move done, but especially with their attitude. Not one complaint; not one gripe; nothing but absolute professionalism. Thank you very much.
