Collegian Movers Reviews

Professional, fast, and treated my home and belongings with care. No complaints. Fair pricing.
- Asheton Terrell

Great service. On time. Moving from Stamford CT to Branford CT. Dan and John were great. Personable, efficient and knowledgeable. Thank you Collegian Movers. I would definitely use you again.
- Elaine McLeod

Guys did a great job. I got 3 quotes and they were by far the cheapest. Being the cheapest in no way sacrificed the quality of work. They were quick workers, personable, and were flexible with my requests. I'd recommend them to anyone considering moving.
- Matthew Walter

I’ve written to tell you how satisfied I was with using Collegian to move household furniture from Connecticut to Pennsylvania. It started with the process for getting the quote. Every time I called I reached an individual, not a voicemail. That meant a lot to me. The process for getting the quote was efficient and all of my questions were answered. I went into the movie comfortable that I knew what to expect. The move itself exceeded my expectations. The team of Dan Johnson and MIke H arrived on time to load the furniture in Connecticut. Dan called 45 minutes before he would arrive, as requested, which gave me time to plan my other activities for the day. There were some difficulties trying to get the furniture to fit where I had expected it to go. Each time I was ready to give up, Dan said, no, let’s try another way. At the end of the day, we had the best possible resolution, due to the efforts of Dan. It was clear that the furniture had been well wrapped before being loaded; no simple throwing of the blankets over the furniture. Dan and MIke were efficient and respectful of the furniture, and my house. I’d recommend Collegian to anyone looking for a quality move. Best, Joan

I used Collegian Movers twice in the same month. Both times they were polite, on time, responsive to my needs, and very careful moving my items through the house & on to the truck. They stuck to their quote & there were no surprises or hidden fees. We had 2 different crews and could not have been more pleased with their professionalism. Highly recommend them.
- Lynda Mccormack

The team was on time, professional, kind, careful, and fast. I moved during peak COVID19 timing and they were careful to wear gloves, sanitize things, keep social distance, etc. My girlfriend and I were blown away by how fast the team was - very efficient!
- Kevin Gleason

The crew from Collegian showed up on time, efficiently moved my belongings out of my home and into a storage unit. The foreman repacked my unit as if he was putting together a 1500 piece jigsaw puzzle! Everything fit in beautifully. I look forward to working with them again when I move into my new home!
- Rebecca Surran

Collegian Movers has moved us four times, in state and from state to state. They are absolutely the BEST! The crew is always professional, friendly and very helpful. You can't beat their prices. I would highly recommend them for any move, big or small!
- Chris Patella

The team of movers was well-organized, professional, respectful and hard-working. They estimated about 10 hours to complete the move and did it in six hours! The foreman was superb at motivating his team and keeping the process going. Great job!!!
- Chris Bogart

I sought estimates from three moving companies for a recent local move. From the first moment of phone contact with the company, Collegian set themselves apart with excellent and personable customer service. Their bid was competitive with the other companies — and the final price (based on the time the move took) actually beat their estimate by more than 10%. The moving crew itself arrived right on time and was beyond professional. They took all proper Covid-19 precautions (wearing masks while in the house, etc.), even on a sweltering hot day, and all of our belongings arrived without so much as a scratch on them. The movers learned my kids’ names within minutes of arriving and kept them entertained as they carried boxes and furniture in and out of the house. After the movers left, we couldn’t find a couple of small pieces to a wardrobe cabinet that needed to be disassembled, but even this minor hiccup was resolved quickly and favorably when the company found those pieces in the moving truck two days later and quickly agreed to ship them back to me (I share this last part not as a complaint but as an example of how their excellent customer service continued even after the move was completed). I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS COMPANY.
- Peter Blair

I had a last minute long distance move and Collegian nicely accommodated me at a reasonable price. They made the process easy with a phone assessment and quote then followed up multiple times before my move. I liked that they had me sign a health questionnaire beforehand, which means they care about the safety of their movers. The movers Ferris and John were not only kind but also on time and wearing PPE as they moved my furniture. When I needed weigh station reports to be reimbursed by my job, they went out of the way to find an open location, since most were closed due to COVID and then the staff nicely emailed them to me. The customer service was wonderful and my overall experience was great. I'm glad that they were able to move me last minute during their busiest season.
- Morgan Pendleton

I had a great experience with Collegian Movers. They were punctual, took the time to wrap delicate items and worked with me to put everything in the correct location. The movers were polite (and funny!) and definitely made my move less stressful.
- Lindy Toczko

Amazingly pleased with these fantastic movers! They came on time, managed all the pieces of the move smoothly, did not let anything (snafus) rattle them or us. Stayed in touch during moving transition, showed up at the new location on time, moved us in without a hitch. So helpful with arranging the rugs, then rearranging the rugs, getting furniture in the right spot and even decorating tips! When they left the house looked pretty decent as well! Mike was a fabulous moving foreman. I highly recommend Collegian for all your moves!!
- Lynn Kelly

The team of men we had to help us move to our new home was dedicated and relentless in getting the job accomplished despite the 90+ temperatures outside that day! We are so grateful we had a hard working team willing to help us with no complaints and with a great attitude. We are so happy with our experience with Collegian Movers and will be recommending it to friends and family in the future!
- Angelina Bello

Very professional and courteous service with both administration and the movers were fantastic. They were a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend using Collegian Movers Inc.
- kathleen czikowsky

I highly recommend Collegian movers. They were accommodating, professional, and extremely careful with our furniture some of which was very expensive and bulky to move. They ensured our possessions were well secured and protected during transportation. There were no issues with broken, chipped, cracked or dented furniture. They disassembled and reassembled the furniture that needed it. They asked where the furniture needed to go without guessing and having to remove it. They were polite and courteous. Our movers were quick and efficient with their time, not dawdling around but getting the job done. Management got back to us quickly after leaving a message, were personable and honest. In my book, they are the best.
- Joseph piccirillo

on schedule Dave, Mike and John arrived at 8:30 am Sat 7/18. They were the best in terms of professionalism, thoughtfulness in caring for moving everything out of a 1930 house with a tight 2nd floor staircase. Worked intelligently and with friendliness. Our current move is a short term rental and hope to move into our permanent residence early 2021 and will request Dave, Mike and John. Thank you Collegian Movers
- George Hanze

I was very happy with the move. The crew was efficient and courteous. Everything went according to plan and no damages. They finished within the four hour minimum time and that was with two drop off locations and included an upright piano.
- eva probst

Collegian moved me from CT to TN and I was pleased with the experience. The folks I needed to talk to on the phone always called me back in a reasonable amount of time and were happy to answer all my questions. They arrived on-time to do my pickup and the team leader (I believe his name was Warren) was very friendly and had a positive demeanor. The crew of 4 worked very quickly. They were able to deliver my items in TN well before the cut off date I had given them, and they hired a lot of help so that unloading went relatively quickly as well. No items missing or damaged. Made a stressful move go very smoothly, I would recommend them.
- Melanizing

I have nothing but rave reviews for this team of movers. George managed my complete mix-up with the date. He was able to get our move accomplished with very short notice. Then there was the team of packers and movers who were professional, respectful, careful and courteous. I have unpacked almost all of the boxes and nothing was broken, everything was packed with great care. BRAVO and thank you for a great moving experience.
- Priscilla Bercovici

We love these guys. They’ve helped us with a few local moves (to and from Monroe and Fairfield) as well as a longer move (from CT to Boston). They never disappoint and truly have their act together. Super value for the money and consummate professionals end-to-end. Highly recommended; we simply won’t use anybody else.
- Derek Hann

Great experience. Lowest quote of three I received, end cost was lower than the quote (guess I had less stuff than I feared). Nice people, communicative.
- R F

Excellent work. Easy and flexible to schedule, and packing and unpacking went very smoothly. Would recommend it to anyone.
- Andrew Proffitt

They are very helpful and nice. Moving crews are very professional to move our big upright piano. Great service.
- Sylvia Chen

I was very impressed with the professionalism of the movers, efficiency and price for my recent move to a third floor apartment. I have already recommended Collegian Movers to several people and would definitely use them again!
- Barbara DiCarlo

Very satisfied. All six movers showed up to the job with excellent attitudes and worked hard the whole day, and it was a long day! I would use them again and recommend them highly. Special shout out to that awesome team who made a stressful day enjoyable!
- Cheryl B

There was a snafu (the truck almost got stuck under a bridge), but even with that, the move was swift, easy, and low-stress... even in COVID conditions! Wonderful experience.
- Marcus Halley

Really disappointed in Collegian... I hired based on good reviews, relatively fair price (small move), and the assurances I got from them (packing, COVID protocols) prior to the move-date. I was told multiple times that proper COVID procedures were in place such as wearing masks - neither mover wore a mask throughout the entire movie, which was terribly uncomfortable especially when filling out paperwork in such close proximity. Additionally, Collegian confirmed that my mattress set would be wrapped in plastic which wasn't done - not even padding was used. The mattress and box spring were both filthy upon arrival like they had been slid into the back of a dirty truck. I complained about these issues and was basically shrugged off with no attempt to rectify the damage, and received a weak apology. The move was quick (less than 2 hours, but you still have to pay a minimum of 4) - so that was the only good aspect of the entire movie.

If you don't have the time to read, then at least look at attached pictures and video to get a sense of the ordeal. I don't often write reviews but I feel it's important to share the experience. I spent about 20-30 minutes on the phone with the sales rep detailing the packing and moving requirements I had for a 1 bedroom 1000 sq ft condo. We were moving my parents from the 2nd floor to the 1st floor in the building next door. Nothing to load on the truck, just a short walk across the courtyard. In addition to the condo, contents of a storage unit in the basement needed to be moved as well. In the preliminary conversation I detailed and itemized every piece of furniture, amount of stuff in the closets, how many closets, contents of storage unit, and size of storage unit. The rep estimated it would be about a 7-8 hour move including the packing. I booked them, 4 men. On the morning of, the supervisor called and said he was sending 5 guys for an additional $25/hr because he wanted to get it done and not let it go too late. I said fine. They arrived on time, 5 guys, showed them the 2 buildings and logistics.They walked in and their attitudes were never the same. They complained that it was a big job, they would never get it done in one day, they needed two. They didn't have enough supplies. A lot of moaning and complaining. I explained I went over it all with the rep. They called the office and came back to me and proposed moving furniture and packing, and the rest, the next day. I said I would like them to assume they were doing the whole job in one day and see how far we get. They got a little defensive saying of course they would operate that way. And so they began. After about 30 minutes one guy had put together a box, packed it, lifted it to move it and it all fell apart and everything spilled to the floor. Luckily mostly pillows and just a few other items that didn't break when they hit the floor. He starts cursing, getting upset. Says the company provides "bad" materials, keeps mumbling disgusted. I said that I was concerned that if the materials were not good what is going to happen when they pack the breakable dishes and such. Then he starts raising his voice to me going on in a rant. I told him not to raise his voice to me, his frustration is not my fault. He then says he quits and walks off the job. Spoke to the foreman about the situation and he said all the workers were at "wits end because it wasn't what they expected, let's just get through this". I reiterated again it was not my fault. He then starts to raise his voice and starts arguing with me about the situation. I reminded him I was the client and I took out my phone and he said "go ahead, call the office" and stormed off. I spoke to the office twice and decided to let them keep working because now I was stuck with half a move happening. I was asked to help one worker with a couch, I didn't understand what he wanted and he got frustrated, got one of his guys and proceeded to point out that I couldn't do a simple task. I told him I was not the replacement guy and I hired them to move. He said he was just looking to get a reaction out of me....I'm the client, total disrespect. I remained present but silent the remainder of the time until I saw the foreman packing a box that he just started throwing things into.See video. When they started packing dishes without wrapping them or even bubbling between piled layers I spoke up and asked if they thought it was wise. Again got attitude back..see pictures. One guy went off on me and so I videoed. Unfortunately only I was able to get the tail end of it but you can see the attitude. They packed and moved the entire apartment in 4 hours. I dismissed them and did not have them move the storage unit. If they did, it may have been a couple of hours equaling the original 7 hours quoted. So nothing was misrepresented that should have caused this attitude and disrespect. Hire them or not...your decision. All I know is I felt disrespected by rude, loud, irritated workers in my own home. Simply outrageous.

Priced the job at $1,100, a few days before our scheduled move date the price gets increased to $1,800. The morning of our scheduled move the crew shows up and says that they need more guys and don't lift a finger. I start to move items from the second floor to the first floor for them, and ultimately the team leader says he has to go (without doing anything) and says that another crew is on their way. Well, that wasn't true. We follow up with dispatch and they come out to check out the job to see why it was such a big job that required more movers. It was ultimately determined that the job was a standard job and should have been done by the original team without any objections. My wife and I were left stranded without any options for the rest of the day. The next day a new crew came to the house - essentially the same crew with a different team leader. The crew and new team leader were very nice and worked hard, but unfortunately I still had to be very involved and was pouring sweat helping the team out. I left the property briefly to get a coffee and I came back to a large hole in the first floor at the base of the steps - they say they'd come out to repair it the next day, but I had to be out yesterday, so how does that work? I should have just rented a UHaul and done it myself. Worst business interaction I can remember, $700 (64%) increase to original quote, fail to move me out on the date stated, I had to do a large portion of the lifting / moving myself, and then they damage the property and don't do anything actually helpful about it. I cannot tell you how big of a regret hiring this company was. Word to the wise, think twice about a company that is OK letting you down in so many ways and not doing everything they can to make it right. Extremely disappointing.
