A Few Good College Men Reviews

These guys were simply fantastic. Came in under budget, worked their butts off, and we're super nice and careful with our stuff.
- Max M.

I got my floors sanded on the 1st floor of my house. When the floors were finished, it was time to return the furniture to the original position (split level and a rather large home with multiple levels - my wife and I managed to move the furniture all over the house). I pinged them via Yelp, they called, I explained, they quoted, I confirmed. Set up a time, they reached out on their way over. The gentlemen were nice and job is finished! Simple and easy to work with. Pricing was reasonable to other quotes and they actually finished quicker than anticipated.
- Ryan F.

First, I appreciated their promptness with responding to my inquiry; most of the companies did not. Our 3000 sq ft home furnishings had been in storage for over a month, spread out in 4 storage units. My wife wasn't pleased with the company we used before. This company was professional, worked with me to determine a day and the appropriate resources for the job. I had a price up front that did not change afterwards. They moved everything over two days. The team was courteous and hard working; it did not take them long. Highly recommended!
- Mike C.

Heard about these guys from family members who were very happy with their work and work ethic, as well as from all the rave reviews online. My experience was mediocre, at best. I will only mention the negatives here as this is the reason my rating is what it is. First, the four gentlemen arrived 45 minutes late and I had to wait for them with an infant in tow. Not the best first impression. Second, I requested that all the beds be re-assembled at our house (a service they offer and charge for per hour) -- well, not only did they have a hard time putting them back together, wasting precious time, they ended up forcing some of the pieces to fit to the point of ripping the screws out of the headboard, which is no longer able to be attached to the bed itself. I didn't realize that the bed was damaged until after they left. Third, they also damaged several walls (one had a pretty deep dent in it) when moving other furniture and again, nothing was said to me at the time, I only learned about it after the fact. For the money we paid them (almost two grand, including a $200 tip) I would expect them to be honest with me, exercise much better care and pay a lot more attention than they did. To be fair, they did end up fixing another piece they damaged - a drawer - a week or two later, but it was the easiest and most insignificant thing to fix. I would much rather they were honest about other items that got messed up and fixed those instead. There are a lot of great reviews here and I would like to believe my experience was some sort of a fluke. Or perhaps some of the guys were new. Quite frankly, employee training should be done ahead of time and should not be my problem. Fluke or not, unfortunately I did receive subpar service and this really shouldn't be happening with such a prominent company. They know they can and should do better.
- Mike S.

ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS!! So kind and professional and hard working men. They were careful with all our furniture and we will use them again!
- Tiffany S.

I can't say enough good about these guys. From my first contact with Dany to the last item placed in my new apartment this move was top notch. I am a 67 year old female and I moved from Maryland to Ohio. I hadn't done an interstate move for 14 years and I was nervous. They picked up my belongings in Southern Maryland (several companies refused to service the area) and delivered everything perfectly the next day in Ohio. They arrived on time, keeping me updated with their movement all the way. Other companies wanted to charge me several hundred dollars more to pick up my stuff with a shuttle, transfer it to a huge semi with other people's belongings and make me wait up to two weeks for delivery. The price was fair for such wonderful service and next day delivery. The price quoted was exactly what I paid. Not one item was scratched, not one broken item in the boxes. I only regret that I can't use Dany and his marvelous crew for my next move within Columbus. My advice: don't waste your time-just hire them. It will be the most pleasant moving experience you've ever had.
- Kathleen R.

I'm writing this review just after the 4 gentlemen finished moving my family's and my belongings from a 2-level condo into our new single-family home. The entire team was communicative throughout the entire process, from providing a detailed breakdown to even asking where items needed to go. Additionally they were efficient and careful of our belongings despite the nasty weather. Overall, I would recommend A Few Good College Men a thousand times. In fact, I'll be using their services in the near future to transport some large items.
- Jennifer H.

I love this company! The most hard working, smart, honest, and overall nice guys ever. I needed some help moving furniture around my house. I needed a sofa moved upstairs and things moved moved around in the garage. They are always early or on time and I appreciate that. They tried to get my sofa moved upstairs, but it just would not go. So, they offered to donate it to Goodwill for me. How wonderful is that? I followed them over in my car and they dropped off the sofa. They took away some old lawn furniture for me. They do not stop until you tell them that you are done. I have used them three times and they have the same super star qualities each time. I recommend them highly and would give them 10 stars if I could.
- Joy B.

Highly recommend. They were very professional, confirming days before and again the night before. They called 15 mins before arriving and were super friendly. They moved our one bedroom apartment professionally and without any issues. I would definitely use them again on my next move.
- Stacy S.

This company did an excellent job for us. They helped us unload a 28 ft. truck into a 3 story house. Three guys did the majority of the job in 3 hours and didn't waste any time. Marcus was easy to communicate with over the phone and the workers that were sent over were friendly, careful, and addressed any additional instructions. The quote for the job was also very fair (have moved several times in the last few years) and there were no hidden additional fees. Thank you.
- Bobby M.

I would give Dany and his team at A Few Good College Men 100 stars if I could - they saved my entire move. The day before I was supposed to move from DC to RI, I found out that the moving company I'd originally hired were essentially scammers with terrible reviews. I canceled with them and, in a panic, used Yelp's quote-request tool for other local movers. Dany replied within half an hour, asking if he could come look at my boxes and give a quote that same afternoon. He was at my apartment soon after, and not only did he provide a very good price, but also talked with me for more than half an hour: listening to my situation, calming me down, explaining the moving industry, and assuring me that he had my back. He did. He managed to fit my move in just two days later, and was highly communicative and professional throughout the entire process. His team of movers were friendly, careful with my stuff, and efficient. They showed up perfectly on time in RI, unloaded gracefully and quickly, and I haven't found a single scratch on anything I own, including my beloved guitars, which Dany made special note of. I will be recommending AFGCM to everyone I possibly can for as long as they're in business.
- Lauren D.

They are easy to deal with, gave us the best deal in the area. Would recommend anyone who is looking to move their piano.
- Yuly S.

The crew that moved us was led by Marcus and they were amazing! Not only did they accept our work less than 24 hours from when they moved us, but they were efficient and courteous. I'd hired them again in a heartbeat! Thank you, A Few Good College Men, for making our move easier!
- Lesly D.

Great communication and super helpful crew. Very knowledgeable about packing and moving. I would recommend them 100% for anyone in need of help packing, moving or junk removal. We are very pleased with their services!
- Ellie G.

My second 5 star review for Dany and his amazing team. This time we used their crew for packing and transporting a load from DC to NC and we were more than pleased with their level of professionalism and communication. I would use them over anyone else we shopped quotes from in the area. Highly recommend them!!!
- Ellie G.

Friendly, professional, and reliable are a few words I'd used to describe this moving company. I needed to find a mover, and was able to use yelp to get quotes from a lot of different movers. While they did not provide as much information upfront about their policies as some of the others, they got back to me promptly, offered me a quote, and were very responsive. They were friendly, showed up early and started working, and stayed until the job was completely finished. The owner of the business, Dany, even showed up to offer his help in addition to the two other movers, just to help things go faster, even though I was only paying for the two that were already there. They moved everything within my house, and even were able to dispose of excess furniture. When one of the items couldn't be reassembled due to outside circumstances, they offered to come back and reassemble it when we were able or even to FaceTime us to walk us through it. I am really happy we worked with a few good college men, and I highly recommend them.
- Jonathan H.

Fantastic experience! Dany was very responsive, the team arrived on time, and they did a great job. The crew of three were all very friendly. I had two pieces of furniture that were quite difficult to move; not only did they find a way, but they did it without a trace of aggravation. Would definitely hire again!
- jen F.

This company is wonderful! We had to make last minute scheduling changes and these guys made it easy. The crew was friendly, professional and fast! They were patient with us. Their rates were fair. And qhen concerned about the stability of an old dining table they showed us the issue and made recommendations for how to handle it safely and gently. I can't say enough good things! Thank you Marcus, Mike, Daryl, Will, and Joel et al!!
- Laura S.

I am not one to review much, but this time I HAD to! I have moved several times and this has been the best moving service I have used by far! Marcus was great from the beginning and returned my calls very quickly. He has great customer service overall! The movers (Will, Joel, and Marquise) were also really great! They moved the two apartments so quickly. A Few Good College Men is great with pricing and they handle your belongings with care. I will definitely be using them again for my next move!
- Elaine L.

Darryl, Class, & Norman - YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME! I contacted the company for information on a move to be scheduled around the first or second week of June. My inquiry was immediately addressed by the owner. (Late night I might add) I was pleased with everything he said and told him I would get back to him around moving time to schedule. Unfortunately I had to vacate earlier than anticipated because my new place was ready. Contacted the owner, he said that he was booked for the morning I wanted to move but could do it around 3 p.m. Perfect for me being that I felt like it was short notice. He locked me in for the date and all was set. On the day the move was scheduled I contacted the owner to see if all was a go and to my surprise he informed me that they were ahead of schedule and would actually be there much earlier than the 3 p.m. that was scheduled. GREAT! The guys arrived around 1:15 p.m. and had me loaded, moved and unloaded to the new place by 2! Very courteous. They were careful. Communication was great! If needed, I will definitely use this company again. I usually post pictures but forgot to do so this time.

Hi my name Joseph and Im a neighbor of a customer who used this companies services and i talked to you a young man that works for the company Mike Stewart. He actually help me the same day he moved my neighbor he moved my boxes and couple pieces of furniture and did a great job even when he didn't have to do this for me. In the next 2 weeks i will be moving the rest of my furniture and boxes. He represented A Few Good College Men Moving Company Very Well. We will be definitely calling him and the company to do the full job. Excellent!
- Mike S.

I used AFGCM based on a friend's recommendation. Generally, we had a positive experience and their price point is excellent. I moved from a one bedroom apartment to a two bedroom condo about 30 min away. There was no deposit or up front cost, which was great, but did make me nervous about whether they would show up or not. They did! And they were only about 10 min late-- totally acceptable. Before the move, Marcus was good about reaching out to me and keeping me informed, which was much appreciated. On moving day, the movers (Darrel and team) were kind and respectful. Mike was especially nice and helpful. We paid for only 2 movers, but AFGCM sent Mike out to help with the loading, which got us out right at the time we no longer had the loading dock reserved. All great. They wrapped up our items nicely, our 52" TV made it through with no problems. I thought they were a little rough with one piece I was particularly worried about, but it was fine. The reason I am docking a star is because they lost 2 out of 4 legs to our coffee table. The team unscrewed them and when they got the coffee table unloaded, admitted that they weren't sure where the other two legs were. I thought we might find them later, but 1+ week later and we haven't. A few days after the move, I called Marcus to ask if they had been found in the truck perhaps, and he promised he'd look into it. He never called me back. I ordered some replacement legs, but they don't look the same and don't fit correctly. I will ultimately have to replace my coffee table.
- Samantha M.

They did an amazing job on my move. My communication from the very beginning with the owner was very professional. He was very detailed in his description of what services were provided and what precautions they were taking due to Covid 19. On the of the move the owner showed up to help unload at the new house so we would able to get the job completed before the rain came. My furniture was well taken care of and no dents or holes in walls. Very pleased and definitely would recommend to anyone !
- Alyssa L.

Excellent in all regards. Everyone we worked with was incredibly professional and kind. They worked quickly but carefully. Would use again and would highly recommend!
- Priya B.

I was so pleased to find this company! I had a very small job, and they were happy to do it for me, fitting it in between larger jobs. All the other companies I contacted wanted way too much for such a small moving job. Marcus was very prompt in communicating, and his workers were friendly and fast. I would definitely use them again.
- Gail M.

I rarely write reviews but I wanted to share the wonderful experience I had using this moving service. A Few Good College Men was easily one of the best moving companies that I have ever used. From scheduling an appointment through Marcus to moving with Dany everything was excellent. They have a friendly, communicate, hardworking, and professional staff. The prices were very competitive to the point that I was nearly $250 below my budget after everything was done!
- Alberto V.

We moved to a condo from a single family home. My wife got a few recommendations from neighbors and yelp. The Gaithersburg office was the one we asked for a quote from and they came out similar to another quote but they provided more men. The quote was 3 men and a truck but they actually showed up with 4 men including Marcus the owner and two trucks. First of all, all of the men were professional and very well mannered. They wrapped all of the furniture with cellophane for protection and they moved quickly. They did an excellent job and there were no major damage from the move. We tipped them 30 each. We did lose some bookcase pegs but we contacted Marcus and he came by and brought over some new pegs himself. He also helped carry a box up for us gratis while he was here. Marcus is one of the nicest people in the world and he hires the best men. We will need to move back to our home soon and I will definitely use them again. I cannot recommend them enough. They were a great choice.
- Frank S.

Very professional. I spoke with both Marcus and Danny about the particulars of my move. I received a contract, a follow up call closure to my move and a crew of 4 that worked from the moment of arrival to finish. Danny even came to help! I would definitely use them again for my final destination. Thank you all for taking the stress out of moving!
- M W.

Moving isn't fun and can be very stressful. AFGCM were so great. We had an issue fitting all our items in our truck, so we had to make a second run. Marcus made it happen. We booked a second crew and we were able to get it all done in one day (which was the goal!). Thanks for his hardworking staff and his willingness to find a solution for us was SO appreciated! He even showed up last minute (late) to assist his team. They were great!! Highly recommend.
- Melissa B.

If you're on the fence about whether to use this affordable moving company, go ahead and book them! They're extremely considerate and their main priority is to make the move for the customer as stress free as possible. The owner, Danny, is extremely kind and is willing to work with you based on your needs and budget. The crew is also efficient and highly skilled. They wrapped my furniture with care and wasted no time loading and unloading to maximize the time I booked them for. If I ever need another moving company, I know exactly who to call.
