Carmack Moving & Storage Reviews

Carmack did a fantastic job. They were on time, professional, and incredibly efficient. We were done start to finish in two hours, and everything arrived in perfect condition. I would highly recommend Carmack!
- Kimberly LeBlancon

My experience with Carmack was great from my initial meeting with Debbie to the delivery of my goods in Michigan. The actual weight of the shipment was in line with the estimate which is very important in planning your moving budget. Watch out for companies who give you a lower weight estimate to try to earn your business. Debbie is wonderful! Her level of communication is beyond expectations! My kitchen and other breakables were packed very professionally and stored for several weeks. Thankfully I experienced only minimal damage. A coffee table top and a lamp were broken. I’ve unpacked everything that was packed by Carmack except one large piece of artwork. The crew on both legs of the trip... more>> Business Response: Thank you very much for taking the time to detail your move with Carmack Moving & Storage - We really appreciate it!

Tremendously well. Everyone was highly professional, Sales rep Jim, packers, and movers. I would highly recommend them to anyone preparing to move. Get their estimate and compare prices!
- Raymond Davidson

Very fair pricing, and no issues whatsoever with our cross-country move. Packers and movers were on time for every step. Plus the responsiveness for questions/updates is worlds better than larger operations (we moved with a national carrier before this). You should absolutely go with Carmack if they are available for your moving dates. Business Response: We love what we do and always strive to make your move as stress free as possible. Thank you for review and letting others know that we are here for you to answer any questions about your move!

It was a complete success.
- Juan T Buddon

I was conducing an in-town move, with both locations about 1 mile apart. I was mainly looking just to have the heavy furniture moved, while I moved the smaller items (clothes, kitchen stuff, etc) myself. I contacted three companies for an estimate, per usual. I wasn't sure what to expect given COVID-19 issues, but most handled it either through a video chat or me providing a detailed description of what I had. I'm not sure if this was just because of the pandemic, or if that is how companies do it now...but I figured I'd add that detail. Carmack and one other Angie's List provider were pretty close in cost comparison and reviews. I had a better gut with Carmack, so went ahead with them.
- Eric Dampon

I have worked with Carmack Moving on all 4 of my personal moves. They are prompt, reliable, worked amazingly hard and fast, they were organized and professional in every aspect of the move. I have recommended them to many of my friends and clients and have gotten rave reviews for doing so. They know their business and they do a fantastic job.
- Spencer Markeron

On time, very professional and extremely helpful! My friend stood me up so I had to .do everything myself. Those guys took over, set everything up and did a better job than I would have. I really appreciated it because I'm handicapped and was in a lot of pain that day. The supervisor Jim was extremely professional and trustworthy and always available for questions. Truly a 1st class experience!
- Dana Underwoodon

From my initial contact with sales to the office staff, moving crew and operations manager, our move couldn't have gone smoother! COVID-19 forced our initial contact to be via FaceTime which was conducted very professionally by Jim. We had several more conversations before our move. Jim was always responsive, courteous, straightforward and professional. The office staff is cheerful and very helpful. Our moving crew handled our furniture with great care, and Rob in operations called before our delivery date (to a new subdivision) to be sure they were clear on our location and restrictions on delivery. They were punctual, professional, friendly and best of all, we received our items without any damage.
- Maureen Hartnetton

The move went smoothly! The movers were professional and punctual. They knew what they were doing and they worked directly with me to keep things moving. I'd hire them again. The final bill was $1,000 less than originally quoted.
- Beverly Crockett-Tayloron

From the estimate to the final delivery, the Carmack team delivered excellent, professional, and friendly service. The loading and delivery team of Ernesto, Walter and Josua took great care with my possessions and worked quickly to load up my old home and then deliver and set up in my new home. I was extremely impressed with everyone I dealt with and would recommend them without hesitation to anyone looking for a mover!
- Leslie Gilchreston

Jim in sales did a great job collecting all my info to determine an estimate, and everything was smoothly set up. Our movers worked quickly and efficiently! It was so nice to not have to worry about anything .
- Joanna Hickson

They showed up an hour late, and then three of the movers spent the first two hours basically standing around watching one guy work. My husband and I had to constantly go find them in the truck, where they were chatting and hanging out. Not surprisingly, the move took several hours longer than expected, and we ended up having to pay then hundreds of dollars more than their estimate. Maybe it was just a bad crew, but the whole experience was miserable.
- Kate F.

We agreed on the price of $125 an hour for (3) men and one hour of commuting time for $125. Movers showed up on time at my apartment door and did a walk through. However, they returned to their truck and it was 20 minutes before they returned back to my apartment. My main complaint is that one of the workers whom took apart our (2) bed frames and re-installed the bed frames at our new location, used a "hand screwdriver" to take many, many screws and bolts apart. This took so much time meaning that only (2) workers were moving our furniture and property. Where was his "power tools" which would have made his job much faster and saved us money. Our last moving company used power tools to take apart furniture and re-assemble. We moved from a two bedroom apartment in Crystal City area of Arlington, VA., to Fairfax, VA and it took them (9) hours to complete!!! That's $1,100.00 folks?? We sold some big furniture items which they didn't have to move. The couch & dInette set. We were completely packed up when the movers arrived and not once did we hold them up. After packing the truck and leaving Crystal City, we were ready to immediately drive to Fairfax and unload our furniture and property. But no, the team leader said his guys were going to stop and get something to eat!!! They stopped at a McDonalds which cost us an additional 35 minutes. Sign me "A sad customer whom will not use Carmack services again and NOT recommend their services to anyone!!
- Michael R.

I called Carmack to get a quote on moving our baby grand piano. Bruce told me he would try to get me a flat rate and would call me back. He called back and said that he had called a piano moving specialist to get a quote for me because he thought they might be able to do it for less than Carmack. He game me the phone number for the other company and a contact name. Thanks to Bruce we are saving at least $200 on the piano move. We appreciate Bruce, his honesty and excellent customer service. If the rest of Carmack operates like Bruce and his looking-out-for-our-customers approach then this is definitely a top rate company. We know who we're calling for our next move. Thanks again Bruce!

Set up an appointment with Mike on Carmack Moving & Storage on 7/6/17 at 4:00 for our interstate move. The appointment was confirmed by the office on 7/5 and Mike the morning of the 6th. 4:00 came and went. I called Mike & got voice mail so had to leave a message at 5:00 and 5:30. At 6:00 & 6:30 I texted him. He finally replied saying "Sorry, I can't communicate with you." As an HR manager, I know this is another way of saying he quit or was fired. No one from Carmack called to tell us he wouldn't be coming out, not the 6th. I let that slide knowing it's difficult to cover a sales persons appointments at the last minute expecting someone from Carmack would call the next morning with an apology and to reschedule. That call never materialized on the 7th or any other day. Yes, I could call them for an explanation and to reschedule, but figured if this how they treat you when they're trying to earn your business, I don't want to know how they treat you once they have your belongings to hold hostage.

I do not think I could have hired a better company. I am so pleased on how they moved my 21,000 pounds. They picked up my fully furnished three level townhome on Saturday which took six hours, six guys and two 26 ft. trucks. They delivered on Sunday 60 miles away with six guys and it also took six hours to unpack. They were great, especially their team leader "Oscar". We had no damage. They showed up at both ends on time and at 8:00am. I would definitely use this company again. I did get five moving estimates and they were one of my lowest bids, Debbie did a great job quoting me something very competitive. I did go to their office, met the owner and support staff and they were all great. They also had a very well organize warehouse which I did not need and many trucks.
- Mark G.

Watch our back, they left things behind and then when I wasn't watching left half the house in the garage. I wouldn't use again. Don't sign anything with them until you scour the job done
- Chris K.

Carmack called me out of the blue and asked if they could stop by and give me a free quote on my upcoming local move from Fairfax to Oakton...I already had a quote i was happy with but I took a chance on this company because I like to support local business. Turns out their quote was within $50 of the other one, BUT with Carmack I got an extra guy (4 total rather than 3) and I learned that whenever the movers get a good review, they get a pay bonus. The rep was also very good about explaining how moving insurance worked and didn't try to push it on me. So turns out I'm super clever because these guys were AMAZING. They were on time, polite - even friendly! They finished my move-out, transfer AND move-in in FIVE HOURS. Saved me $600+ from the estimate. Before you go with a big moving chain, definitely talk to these guys. I would go with them again in a heartbeat.
- Kim S.

So we chose Carmack because of price and honesty from the salesman. Everything went well with pack up and the guys were fantastic. Showed up on time and packed everything accordingly and with care. They gave us a free month of storage while our house was being built as well. So everything was great until the actual delivery. So our house was on time to be finished no issues. So we signed the contract for delivery no issues. Then hurricane Matthew hit Charleston where we were moving. Then it all went bad. House got delayed. Closing got pushed but not the movers. So they started out okay working with us. We were communicating just fine with the Operations Manager no issues. Then our closing got delayed another week. Tried to work out the timing with the OP Mgr but he said he couldn't because of two other customers that had been delayed but weren't affected by the hurricane. So we had to find a storage unit and have it unloaded and then find new movers to move it in. It was hassle. All we needed was an extra 4 days. And the OP Mgr told me since the other two customers weren't affected there was nothing he could do. Are you serious? There was a category 4 hurricane with flooding everywhere and power outages. Told us he had already delayed the other ones by two days and that were all they could do. So we asked for some assistance and got a list of storage places. We called around to ask other movers what they would have done and basically they would have arranged for the delivery and storage with another moving company taking on the financial burden to make it work for us. The bottom line that the OP Mgr told us was that they couldn't do anything and they were protected by the contract and the federal government in cases like this. So with all this said I would not recommend Carmack at all. I do believe they should have done better customer service and not hide behind a contract.

The salesperson provided a reasonable estimate. However, as typical with most businesses (large and small), Sales and Operations do not always communicate so just confirm that what you discussed with the sales estimator is conveyed to the operations team. By general standards, overall the move went well in early March (we have moved 7 times in the 23 years using everyone from local 'mom and pop' operations to global corporate/government relocation services). We did have one item damaged and filed a claim for it. We were still waiting for a reply this month to our insurance claim but after finally juggled our schedules to review the damage it was a simple cabinetry repair which Carmack's Operations Manager personally took care of at our residence in an hour; no hassle with locating a repairman. Kudos to Carmack..
- John M.

All I can say is, WOW. We had a special situation requiring overnight storage and additional help, and the folks at Carmack went above and beyond to take care of our needs and give us a good deal. The movers were very polite and made sure to be careful with our things. They checked to make sure everything was packed up the way we wanted, and they even packed loose items we hadn't thought to pack, no extra charge! They triple checked that all our items went to the appropriate rooms. They also worked very fast! I don't know how they do it! Customer service from the main the office was very thorough in explaining everything, providing a detailed quote, checking in, and offering assistance every step of the way. Thanks so much for a smooth moving experience...highly recommend.

Carmack is the moving company you want to root for - small, locally owned business with a really friendly staff. Plus, the people who move your goods are all full-time company employees. Unfortunately, my move with them was no where near as good as promised. My move: they were to pick up the goods, store it for a few months and send it to the other side of the country. I priced Carmack, Town & Country and J&K and wish I would have used one of the other firms. Communication with Carmack was TERRIBLE - no one would reply to me about when my items were delivered; when they failed to deliver within the promised window no one called to let me know they were not coming; no one ever told me how much the shipment weighed until after payment was due (against federal regulations), and they over charged me over $2000 (which I would not have known about unless I pressed for the weight and detailed information). SUMMARY: Carmack employees are very nice and the guys on the ground moving your items are good; but save yourself from their terrible communication and poor accounting/billing practices by using one of the region's other quality carriers.
- L S.

Our experience with Carmack was fantastic and we highly recommend them. They were extremely nice and attentive in all aspects of our local move. Ron, the operations manager, was a pleasure to work with. The office staff was very helpful and focused on our needs and the movers themselves were some of the hardest working people we've ever seen. They did all they could to complete the move as quickly as possible to limit the cost and they took great care of our things. They moved everything from our three-bedroom, single-family house without leaving a scratch on any of our things. We were also pleased with the overall cost. We will be moving again in six months and we plan to use Carmack again for this out of state move. We couldn't have asked for a better experience.
- Mark C.

What a great moving experience Rafael and Victor were professional and efficient. Wrapped all furniture in blankets and nothing was damaged. We moved some to an apartment and the rest out of state. I would highly recommend.

On 26 February 2020, I was moved by Carmack from Lorton VA to Woodbridge VA. The overall move was excellent and the Movers where very professional and duty oriented. However, during the move one of our tv's was damaged. The movers packaged and stowed the television on its side before placing it in the movers truck. Then when they unloaded the television they stowed it on its side in our master bedroom in Woodbridge. It is known that flat screen tv's especially at the size of ours (65") are required to be stowed/placed upright at all times to balance the weight of the tv and prevent damages. Our tv is now inoperable, cracked, and displays a black distorted images due to the negligent packaging/placement by the movers. Carmack Moving has not returned any of my emails or call referencing my claim. We went with Carmack Moving company particularly, due to the customer service of Ms. Debbie. This is really disappointing. It is already costly to move and then to incur a debt to replace an appliance unexpectedly due to negligence is completely unsatisfactory.
- Desmond C.

I have moved many times throughout the past ten years. I used a variety of companies, some have been good, some have been bad, but this one is amazing. I was skeptical at first because of all the questionable reviews on Yelp, but after getting a quote and such and watching the consistent social media page, I pulled the trigger. They didn't provide the cheapest service, however, after seeing their quality of work, I had no choice but to choose Carmack Moving and Storage. They took care of my move with ease. They provided consistent communication and lots of advice to make the move easier. In addition, I was able to use their in-house storage. They provided a pretty good deal with a storage crate. Overall, I highly recommend Carmack Moving and Storage. If you don't believe me, check out how they are different on their social media pages!
