Commonwealth Moving & Storage Reviews

As a rule moving encounters are not fun and frequently turn out badly but rather on the off chance that you need to protect yourself/ves against that from happening then run with these folks. Bravo Commonwealth movers!
- Bill O.

This company's packers and movers both showed up several hours late. The packers were somewhat slow and put anti-theft stickers in some pretty useless places on some containers, including our bicycles which makes no sense. The the movers were careless moving the dolly around, so it knocked some drywall mud off of the cornerbead. They were sweating like crazy and thus got furniture very dirty, especially after we specifically said we wanted one of our nice furniture pieces to get some sort of cover before they handled it. Our blender is missing, which means the packers didn't pack it or the movers didn't number it and now it's not with us. Lastly, the truck sat in storage in Va Beach for a week longer than it was supposed to. If you have an option, I wouldn't choose this company for your move. NOTE: If the movers mark your items as "soiled," because they're just not new, that's an incorrect marking and will bite you in the butt if you later try to claim damage on the item. Argue the markings and make your own comments. Second, take inventory at the moving truck itself to make sure every item has a number on it.

Only 2 movers showed up to pack the whole house, one of them was good, but the kid he brought was almost useless. He wandered around my home aimlessly doing nothing, did not pack everything he could have in my daughters room and LEFT THE UPSTAIRS WINDOWS OPEN ALL DAY WHILE THE AC WAS RUNNING!! The kid was really sloppy with wrapping and taping, just tossing boxes around. :/ not thrilled.

I have been trying to resolve an issue since April regarding lost and broken items and nothing has been accomplished They promised to take care of it and have the insurance company contact me but nothing yet and it is now the middle of October. This is the Norfolk location.

This is a review on whoever is representing the company in the white fiat: Somebody in the fiat with this company’s tags on the side of the car was flying (I was going 80 in a 55) & they cut me off. They were going in and out of cars, speeding up so others couldn’t pass, and then ultimately staying in the left lane doing 70. I guess somebody’s ego is too big for anybody else to drive in front of them.

Good job
- jorge deleon

Movers showed up 3 hours late, did not properly cover the floors and scratched our newly refinished hardwood floors. After pointing out that the floors were scratched they stopped working went to thier truck and refused to finish placing and assembling the furniture. We currently have furniture stacked in our living room. When my husband was going over the paperwork with driver, the other movers were honking the horn of the truck. Very unprofessional and lazy workmanship. To top that off we have line items missing from the inventory and an entire mattress and boxspring missing. Worst moving experience ever.

I would give NEGATIVE STARS if I could! Worst moving experience ever! From poor planning, scheduling, poor packing, to nearly $18,000 in damages to our household goods, not including damages to our new rental home! Packers wrapped heirloom antiques in a single sheet of paper and crammed them into boxes with other heavy items, while my $5 plasticware was wrapped in dish pack?! For delivery, the movers arrived several hours late and all moaned and groaned when I did the walk through with them. Complaining under their breath about how big the house was and the fact that we had a two story home. The driver did not plan ahead and got stuck at the end of our no-outlet street while trying to turn around a SEMI! The front passenger tire literally came off of the axel and gouged the street which delayed unloading for almost 5 hours! Huge inconvenience especially when you're juggling childcare in a new city on top of it all. The movers scuffed and smudged many walls and scratched wood floors, soiled newly cleaned carpet from dragging items, soiled furniture items from sitting on them and dragging them on the ground (both indoors and outdoors), and DROPPED several large/heavy furniture items off of the truck while unloading! Since our moving truck arrived locally before we did, all of household goods were CRAMMED into many crates. They literally broke and folded solid wood items in half and stacked heavy items on delicate antique items just to make it all fit! A large family antique heirloom wardrobe was dismantled into 10+ pieces, terribly damaged and they were unable to reassemble it! I was literally in tears! Delivery took three separate, non-consecutive days and they "forgot" to delivery a 12 foot kayak because they "overlooked it". Hence, a third delivery day. Not sure how you overlook a 12 foot kayak?! I UNPACKED and put away close to 75% of the boxes over the two days of unloading. They moaned and groaned on the second delivery day when I indicated that they would be doing a complete unpack and furniture reassembly. This is extremely unprofessional considering the company is automatically paid to provide this service! (Don't let them convince you otherwise!) I was extremely frustrated considering I had already done the majority of the unpacking and was still frantically running around our new home trying to get stuff unboxed and put away...while it took several men in one room to unpack a couple boxes and 3-4 men in another room to put beds together. Lazy! They saw how hard I was working and literally decided to stand around and let me do the majority of WHAT THEY WERE BEING PAID TO (not) DO. They were literally standing around watching each other while I was busting my butt! Furniture was poorly reassembled and baby crib not even completed. Now, I am always as accommodating as I can be (in an empty house) and provide lunch/water, but it seemed as if it was EXPECTED, which I did not appreciate. Now, we are left with a garage full of damaged goods, replacing items out of our own pocket and will still need to settle with them to repair the damages to the rental home so that we are not liable for them when we move out. Yes, they delivered and unloaded our items. Yes, we had a house full of furniture and boxes to unload. Yes, some of the items were heavy. Yes, some of the gentlemen had nice manners. This is the job that they chose for themselves. Don't be unprofessional and lazy and complain...I didn't choose this job for you. Overall, the job was atrociously executed. Like I said, worst moving experience EVER! For anyone who thinks military families are "entitled" or have it "easy", think again! Imagine dealing with the mental/physical/financial/emotional stress of a terrible situation like this every few years and having your precious family antiques and heirlooms completely destroyed! They don't give a damn about your things. For the majority of the crew, they outsource and hire "helpers" literally the day before delivery. Avoid this company AT ALL COSTS! I pray they do not use this company for our next move!

- Zakee Diamond

This is the worse moving company I have ever moved with in 16 years and 9 moves. They broke my Tv , bar , bed and sofa are destroyed. The workers were trying to get me to work with them since the main ladies back was hurting. I wish I could share pictures. Plz plz run the other way

Phone went missing after they moved us
- Ashley S

Absolutely awful. Waited for two hours and they sat in the van doing nothing. Worst company ever.
- Paige Bryant

Negative stars. They broke many of my stuffs, furnitures have dent, scratches and missing pieces. Most of the boxes are bitten and broken. Never ever deal with them. I think professionalism and carefulness are moved away from this moving company.
- Ujwal

someone else the loss we have experienced from these crooks. We were moved March 2020. Their movers stole hundreds of dollars worth of small items. We had four witnesses who saw them making trips back and forth to the van with our items. Their supervisor, Xenia, assured me that since her employee has been there for such a long time he would never do something of this sort. She also was confident the four witnesses were all lying and they were actually the ones who stole the items. PLEASE SAVE YOURSELVES THE STRESS AND TROUBLE. DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY.
- McKell Baker

0 zero-rating if allowed. Terrible company. DO NOT USE!!! The 2 men who packed our items are named Richard and Richard. USER BEWARE OF THESE MEN! THIEVES! They stole so many small items from us under our noses, I could write a novel with how many of our items went missing. I confronted one of them as well... "No this was mine I brought with me from home" (gardeners knife)...LIES!! Their manager, Xenia Collaco-Moers is covering for them, stating "I have never had an issue with them and they have been working for me 15 years". News flash lady, you all are thieves! DO NOT USE!! Moving is stressful as it is, and it's very upsetting knowing we had trusted this moving company to come into our home and steal our personal belongings. All the while my infant child was laying on the floor and they were interacting with her!
