Black Bear Moving & Storage Reviews

Im very thrilled with the experience, beginning from the sales team to the movers themselves. Everyone played their part in the best way possible. Black bear ACTUALLY cares. We never thought we would find a company like there guys. They help you from the first min of the call to the last furniture they put together. Taking the time to explain and make sure you understand how it goes and more importantly everything is with a huge smile. Thank you guys!

I recently moved back to TX to be closer to my parents, I had 2 bedroom apt in Anaheim fully furnished, been thinking a lot if I should do it myself and sell everything, then I got a call from BLACK BEAR and they price they quoted me was very comfortable and reasonable, not much more then to rent a uhale + all the expenses, make sure to find a hotel and all that headache. I decided it was worth the extra bucks since I did it myself last time and it really wasn’t easy at all. On the move date with BB I got a call from the driver, he asked me when it will be a good time for me to start the move, I told him around 8.30am. They showed up at 9 sharp and finished everything with less than 2 hours. They were professional and quick and made sure to load everything in the best way possible to even save me some money. My items arrived safe and sound in Austin 6 days after pickup which was ok, I got to spend some time with my folks. On delivery it was different team but the same great service, they reassembled everything on the actual rooms and they’ve been very polite and nice. The price was worth to do this all over again, I wouldn’t change this experience for the world. Thank! Definitely recommend!

We had a great experience with this company. Very professional. Treated our furniture like it was there own. Hustled the whole time. I HIGHLY recommend!
- Ashley O'connor

Black bear was awesome with moving my business from LA to FL, leaving and shutting down my shop at my city was emotionally draining enough and although it was relatively easy moving my belongings from point A to B, they did a great job and got it done before the end of the day. They literally helped to ease everything with this process and im extremely grateful for them. Will use again in the future!

I booked this company thinking I would get my discount that I was informed of getting but they did not hold it through when putting information and getting your quote. Even when the sales representative is the one getting the information and taking their time to prepaid your inventory data quote after you give the information. Customer service did not help at all when I asked what the discount I received did not change for when the final amount happened the day of the move. The movers that came to pick up everything was very friendly but that was the only good thing about this. I would not recommend this company at all because after everything is done they will jump up the final amount more than what you would want. I highly recommend a different moving company because I guarantee you will not have a good experience with them. I booked for 400 cf when after they got everything it was 495 cf, they charge over a whole grand for the 95 cp extra. They even wanted to silence me from going to any legal enforcement or anyone else about this problem and asked me to sign the document saying I wouldn't speak about it anymore before I'm able to get the better price compared to the amount they asked for but still less than the discount I originally signed up for. Hate this company completely and I hope they get shut down so no one else can be scammed from their outrageous prices you don't find out about until after they pack everything. Complete bullshit.

Jose Carlos & Jose Munoz were awesome movers!...These guys were prompt on time & new what they were doing! Very courteous & friendly! Tons of help! Had a great time getting to know them a bit! 10 STARS if I could give it!
- Beau B.

Sean and his team were late but apologized because they had to pack up the household before us and were not notified. However, Sean called and said he would be over in 40 minutes. They arrived in the 40 minutes he promised, marked and wrapped up our furniture professionally and loaded up the truck quickly. It turned out to cost a bit more because the furniture took up more space. Let's see if they get it to Ohio as scheduled. I will post another review after it arrives and all the pieces are safely there. Mike and Jenna

Trish has been my contact person throughout the move. She has always been available, pleasant, polite and patience in answering and accommodating my request and fears. Joe

My experience has been a joke with this company. Talked to their sales rep Quinn and got an estimate for $2250.00 for a cross country move. My list of items stayed pretty accurate throughout the process. I estimated my total to be around $3500 at the end of the day. Moving day comes and the driver gives me another quote of $9500. I laughed then complained. Driver gives me his best price of $8800. I'm pissed so I call the company and talk to Alex. He gives me his best price of $6800. How many prices are you going to give me? How many times are you trying to price gauge people? I cancelled and said they lost my business. Alex said he will refund my $95 deposit tmrw...but reading other reviews stating how they will lie and not refund makes me believe I need to call my credit card company instead of waiting for them to refund. Stay away. Buyer be aware. Wasted my time!
- Tom K.

Very friendly and helpful with my questions/concerns. Kelly took care to explain all of the paperwork to me and made sure I understood everything. He walked me through the pricing as well, a positive moving experience.
- Thomas M.

Kelly and Richard arrived on time and showed Extreme courtesy and professionalism. Trish the sale rep was excellent very helpful. They change my nightmare of moving experiences to a dream come true. Highly recommend

I just got off the phone with Gabby, who did her best to smooth things over regarding the poor communication and delays around my move. As I mentioned in a previous review, the movers on both dates (receiving and delivering) were professional and efficient. What soured my experience was a lack of communication, serious delays, and damage to some of my items. I am now due for a partial refund of my moving costs, and I certainly appreciate the followup.
- Charles W.

Good, Friendly & Barak have good humor. Thank you ! We are very happy to move out from California Thank you black bear
- Nikunj J.

The salesperson was kind and gave me a fair price. The moving team, during pick-up, was polite and efficient. The price I paid matched the price I was quoted. Be sure to accurately describe what you are intending to have moved. The quote can only be as accurate as the itemized list you provide the company.
- Mary G.

My move was way easier than I expected. They made it look simple as I did not do anything but them. They were so professional and polite. I will always recommend them!
- Louis Jackson

I had to move to Fresno due to business and I was worry I could not find a good company. My brother in law told good things about this company and now I can say he was right. They are so professional and efficient. Five stars!

- Cesar Meller

I couldn't be more satisfied with any other company than this! They are so professional and transparent. Every member of the team was so helpful and friendly. I highly recommend them.
- Steve Jackson

Awful experience with this company. Poor communication, bait and switch schemes like doubling our estimate on move day, broken furniture on arrival, unexpected delivery, and lack of responsiveness. They also hired yet another party to deliver, charged more for a uhaul to be used and sent skinny men who were obnoxious aggressive and spoke no English to dump our stuff in our home and refuse to take the packing materials with them. We STILL have not received our money back for a second stop delivery service we did not use bc the delivery men were inept. They have been completely unhelpful in repairs of damages, and refund. Do not use this company.
- Alisa Rose

Black Bear Moving and Storage has given me BY FAR the WORST moving experience I’ve ever had. What was originally supposed to be $1,400 to pack, move, and unpack my one bedroom apartment ended up costing me $3,200 with random fees that they would spring on me with at the last moment, knowing I did not have time to argue or look for another company to move with. Some extra things they charged me for: $1,100 extra because they claimed I had more “stuff” than I had originally told them I had (which isn’t true, I came from a 500 sq ft apartment with no appliances). & another $500 just to unload my belongings into my new apartment which was supposed to be included. If I did not pay, they would not give me my things. Not to mention they were a week late delivering my belongings. And even with me paying over double the amount they originally quoted me, they were still rude and unprofessional every time I called with questions. Beware!!!

My experience with Purple Heart was absolutely terrible and would never recommend them. From the start, they never told me they were a broker which isn’t that big of a deal to me. As my move date approached, Purple Heart called to do their quality assurance. I gave Purple Heart Moving Group the exact number of boxes (and sizes) and the all the furniture that needed to be moved. I verified with the QA representative that that size of our boxes were the industry norm in order to get the most accurate estimate. When the move date arrived, the moving company (Black Bear Moving and Storage) arrived over an hour after their scheduled window. Additionally, the moving company did not have all the packing supplies that were needed and had me, personally, go get supplies for them. They also didn’t even know that had to pack china/dishes for us even though it was on the QA estimate. So much for a full service, professional moving company. When the movers went through the house to take inventory, they told me that my estimated cubic feet was way off and that I’d need to get a new estimate from the company before they would move anything. After calling Purple Heart, they said that I need to talk with that moving company about the estimate. So much for customer service. The new estimate was $2,500 more than what was originally provided during the QA. Talk about a bait and switch. I was told that the prior estimate could change if I had more boxes or if my furniture was oversized. After indicating that the boxes and furniture have not changed, I was told that my furniture must be oversized and that I’d have to pay if I wanted the move to occur. I believe my furniture is pretty average sized and I verified with the movers onsite just to make sure I wasn’t being unreasonable. The movers indicated to me that my furniture was nothing out of the ordinary. Purple Heart’s agreement stated that I needed a formal, written estimate for any changes. I’ve never received this. After calling Purple Heart to inquire about this, they informed the moving company onsite about how the estimate wasn’t provided and the moving company immediately stopped loading our items (even though they were 75% done) and said they will not continue to load the truck or move my items unless I paid the increased price. Since we were closing in 2 days, I had to agree so that they would continue packing. I provided drinks and snacks to the movers throughout the day since it was hot. After the loading was over, an employee walked over to our personal items that we set aside and told them not to touch, and grabbed more drinks that we were planning to bring to a Memorial Day bbq without even asking us. Again, talk about being professional. Highly suggest refraining from using this company. As soon as they low-ball you to get you committed, they increase the price and force you to pay the higher price. During the moving process, I was informed that I would receive $450 back since they used less space than what they had estimated. I was told that this would all be taken care of. The day my delivery arrived, I was told by the driver that he wasn’t aware of the $450 discount. I showed the driver emails outlining the discount; however, he said he didn’t care and that he had to collect what was on his paper. I was told to pay the full price and then ask for reimbursement. After saying it was ridiculous to do that, I was told I would be charged for $150 for a delay if they had to wait. Additionally, the driver said another charge would be made for a long-haul since from the truck to where they dropped my items would be longer than 50 ft. I inquired about the long-haul fee being from the truck to the house and the driver replied with “Nope, it’s where we drop it. So if you have a long hallway, it costs more.” Wow… In order to avoid the delay fee and long haul fee, I paid the full price and had the mover drop everything literally just inside my front door. The movers left without reassembling my furniture, which the contract states they will. When notifying Purple Heart, they shrugged it off. They had their money and didn’t care. When submitting for my reimbursement for $450, I was sent back an adjustment form saying I had to give up my rights to sue and I could not post anything online regarding my experience. Nothing like withholding money they owe you until you sign their “hush money” form. So much for a discount based on the cubic feet. Again, stay away from Purple Heart Moving Group and Black Bear Moving and Storage.
