DC Top Choice Movers Reviews

This is the absolute worst place I have ever dealt with. I call and set up for them to arrive at 10 AM to Fort Belvoir (given the name, that's a military installation). -10:30 rolls around, still not there, 11 am- I call the number and the manager says they have been trying to call but the number is disconnected, clearly it's not because I'm calling you. They were in an accident and it will be another 25 minutes, okay fine. -12:30 pm rolls around, no call, nothing, so I call. I'm sorry they were turned away at the gate because they did not have their ID (who doesn't keep an ID on them). At this point I'm pissed! The manager doesn't understand why I didn't inform him he would need an ID to get on a military instillation. He never planned on calling to let me know they couldn't get on. So I asked when do they plan on coming back, "well not today, because the drive to get his ID and back will be too late", I flip out. In a nut shell I was paying $595 to have my items loaded, unloaded and arranged. He apologized and offer for me to go rent a uhual and he could provide 2 helpers in about an hour and a half, for 2 hours of help for $365. You're joking right? All in all he blamed me for not explaining he would be coming on a military instillation and they would need ID. We live in DC, there are military installations every 10 miles and given the name it was a military instillation. Poor communication and offered no way of helping. I wouldn't waste your time with this company. In response to the owner: yes you have called to try and get us to change our review on your business and I get that, but as stressful as moving already is, I shouldn't have to get the run around when it comes to this. Nothing I wrote in my review was false. I also don't appreciate you making it seem like a big deal that I didn't reiterate the guys coming needed their ids, we live in DC the name has Fort (meaning military in it). When they were turned away at the gate they still didn't even call to let us know, as my husband sat and waited. I had to call you to find that out, remember that? Which I didn't even previously mention above. Also, if after all of this and you wanted to "help" us out by telling us to go get our own uhaul truck, you should have offered your guys to come to us at a substantially cheaper rate after giving us a 10:30 am arrival time and by 1:30 me calling to find out they were turned away for not having their ids and not to mention the 10 phone calls in between and saying their estimated arrival time was 25 minutes. But no you still wanted us to go get our own uhaul and pay for your helpers that wouldn't be there for another 1.5. You being the manager or owner should have just stepped in and taken matters into your own hands and got the job done. My review or stars won't change.
- Stefani S.

I am really impressed with the quick email responses and the owner also not having a problem with talking to me contacting them if I need too. I am was impressed though of how easy it was able to book online. The movers were great, they knew what they were doing, they were excellent with the packing and organizing in the truck! Thanks again! Highly recommended and affordable!
- Educated L.

D.C. Top Choice Movers did a phenomenal job moving us in to our 2-bedroom apartment! The movers were on time, professional, and careful with our items. Most impressive was how much they were able to carry - we felt like 2 movers from this company did the work of three, maybe even four, from another company (and we've moved a lot!). Highly recommend!
- Kendra S.

Recently used DC Top Choice Movers to help move from Virginia to NC. Movers Joseph and Eddie called the day ahead to confirm, showed up on time, and completed the job in a timely and professional manner. Joseph is an extremely personable individual and as a pleasure to work with.
- Chas B.

DC Top Choice came through when my contracted moving carrier failed to provide adequate manpower for the job for a military move. From the moment DC Top Choice showed up on the job, they got to work and didnt stop till the final minute of their 3 hour time block. They were professional, curteous and accomodating. Keith and Brian were awesome, and I will definitely be requesting these individuals if I ever return to DC. This is how a moving company should provide service. Thanks for setting the bar. Hire this company...they do not dissappoint!!!
- Ben A.

Paul and Raphael were prompt, professional, and efficient. Communication leading up to the move was fantastic. And the price was right to boot. $500 for a full service 5 hour move with truck included. Highly recommend!
- Brian S.

DC Top Choice Movers did a fantastic job with my complex move from Alexandria and Arlington to Washington DC. My move was a little more complicated than your average move. The movers had to meet me at one location in Alexandria to pick up a couch and then travel to another destination in Arlington to pick up my remaining belongings. It was also more complicated than the typical move because both my belongings and the belongings of another person were located in the same room, so the movers had to pay attention to which things to grab and which things to leave behind. Other things that I appreciated about DC Top Choice Movers include their transparancy. They were great about calling me in advance and letting know when they were arriving in Alexandria. In addition, they showed up EARLIER than scheduled and got my move under way. The movers were extremely courteous and efficient. They thought through how to move my couch before the handled it, and they worked as a team to get my belongings out of the apartment in Arlington in about 30 minutes. I'm extremely thrilled with my movers. I will definitely use them again, and I recommend them to others.
- Emily N.

I had a last minute request to unload my items to my 2nd floor apt. I spoke with Robin and Amy. I had to reschedule my appointment as the apartment mgmt asked me to remove my cubes. In two hrs notice, Eddie and his partner Mike showed up. Outstanding service, these guys completed the job in less than 3 hours. They were fast, professional and understanding. They provided above and beyond customer service by accepting my unusual request. I would give them a five star and highly recommend their service.
- M R.

I'm a repeat customer of DC Top Choice Movers and reviewed the company on Moving Help dot com but wanted to come here also to yelp about my great moving service. I used their services yesterday to move out of my apartment. My appointment was at 9:30, they were calling me at 9:28 to say they were outside and ready to work. The crew was awesome, and stepped in where needed to help fine tune the packing of my glass to ensure it was protected. Fast, efficient and excellent customer services provided by Keith and his moving partner. I will definitely use the service again, and recommend you to do so also; you won't be disappointed. I've referred several people and they too have not been disappointed.
- Corey P.

I would not recommend this service. We hired them to unpack our truck. They sent three people who were unable to lift heavy furniture. They scratched up the floor in the new apartment. We actually ended up bringing up some of the heavy furniture ourselves because they were moving so slow. When we called the manager on the phone to complain he just tried to give us a discount rather than address the problem of employees who could not really lift the furniture in a timely manner,
- Bharath S.

I chose DC Top Choice after comparing their prices and services with multiple companies. From initial contact to the completed move, they were responsive, professional, efficient and affordable. I would highly recommend DC Top Choice and plan to use them on my next move. Here are a few reasons why: THEY SHOWED UP NOT JUST ON TIME, BUT EARLY - giving me ample warning in advance. The office even contacted me to confirm that the team had arrived.The movers were courteous, focused and worked well together. The move was finished in the amount of time I requested and for the price quoted - without rushing and with careful attention given to the treatment of my belongings. The office staff were polite and responded quickly and professionally to my questions and requests. They patiently worked with me when I needed to make changes to my move. The office contacted me the evening after my move to ensure that everything had gone smoothly. I have moved more times than I can recall - but this is the first time I felt compelled to write a review of my movers. Thanks DC Top Choice for taking the pain out of the typically hateful moving experience!
- Olivia C.

Great experience start to finish! Robin, the manager, was a real pleasure to work with! Very professional and punctual, he had my move scheduled right away, the very next day, since me and my wife were in a very big rush. Amazing customer service skills. The moving team was very professional and pleasant to work with. They had blankets for our furniture. Not a single scratch on all of our furniture, 3 beds, one living room and the kitchen. Also, they were very careful with the walls! Not a single scratch on the walls, either! It looks like a few customers did a very big injustice to these guys. They are very honest, hard-working and professional movers. And the price is very competitive. I would recommend to all of our friends and family! Good luck Robin! Thanks very much for your hard work!
- P D.

I worked with Joseph and his associate from DC Top Choice Movers this past weekend. They were both professional and very helpful! We moved a two-bedroom apartment to two different locations in 3 hours in the district, which is a remarkable feat! They are efficient and knowledgeable and can maneuver large furniture into small elevators! I'm very pleased with their work and professionalism. I am pleased to report that there was no damage to our furniture or belongings during the move! I highly recommend Joseph from DC Top Choice Movers and will not hesitate to recommend their services again.
- Maimi N.

We had an excellent experience with these movers at the end of August 2018, and would wholeheartedly recommend them to any friend who is moving. We rented a Uhaul van and all we needed was someone to help carry and pack the furniture. This was the perfect (and very affordable) solution. We were doing a somewhat complicated move between three different apartments in the Dupont Circle area of DC, and Robin accommodated our multiple stops with no problem. Our movers, Paul and Mike, communicated with me in advance, arrived on time, brought their own dolly and tools (amazing!) and were incredibly helpful and friendly. We even had one super heavy piece to move (a granite table), which they were able to move with no problem. When one item didn't quite fit into the Uhaul van, Paul put it on top of his own personal car -- so nice. All of this done in 3 hours time, with nothing broken or scratched. Thank you so much, Robin, Paul, and Mike -- the normally traumatic experience of moving was so much easier thanks to you.
- S S.

The worst movers company ever!!! If I can give a zero star, I would. Do not use this company unless you don't mind being exploited by Robin. I had hired two movers, but one did not show up, which forced us to delay the completion of the move that cost me more money. When I complained to Robin, I received a lecture about how it is not his responsibility, how little money he was making, how difficult it is to hire good movers, and how unreasonable it is for me to expect the movers to come on time. Further, Robin even charged my credit card for the mover who did not show up at all. This company is a fraud and a scam. Hire them at your own risk.
- J L.

Hired DC TopChoice Movers through the u-haul moving helpers website, they offered one of the best deals and had a ton of great verified reviews. The two moving professionals arrived early completed the move in under 2 hours which was my optimistic completion time. The movers were both very efficient and professional. I also hired the movers to drive the u-haul, and despite the last minute change the professionals were super helpful and ontime for the move. Following the move the driver offered to return the rental truck so I could go on with my day and still made it within the 2 hour window booked. Had a great experience and would definitely recommend DC Top Choice Movers.
- Sabrina C.

After moving me multiple times during college and after, my Dad finally made me hire a moving company. I found them on the U-Haul site and they reached out to me a day later to set up the correct times and really worked to accommodate my schedule. I booked two movers for 2 hours for my one bedroom apartment. It ended up taking 2 and a half hours, which worked out fine because you just pay for the time you go over (the charge was pretty reasonable). Paul and Joseph were my movers and they brought multiple dollies and a roll of tape and plastic wrap. They put everything into the truck carefully, safely, and efficiently. They also used the furniture blankets that I rented from u-haul to make sure that nothing would break in transit. I recommend these movers and if I am ever back in the VA area, I would use them again.
- Jamie F.

STAY FAR, FAR AWAY!!! I scheduled a last minute move with this company and was glad to see they could fit me into their schedule. I did not realize they were only labor and I had to secure my own moving truck. When I told them I did not see this mentioned in their ad, the primary contact, a male named Robin, sent me 14 text messages explaining that they were only labor, and said I accused him of lying just because I asked about the ad. IMMEDIATELY, I knew something was wrong with him. I told him I reserved a truck and tried to get him to calm down, but he continued to send text after text, and email after email. Then him and his colleague canceled the job and told me that I canceled so I could not have a refund. I called the brokering service and they refunded my money, but the texts and emails kept coming from Robin, this time accusing me of threatening to do harm to him and his family! I HAD TO CALL THE LOCAL POLICE. I asked him to stop contacting me and told him I called the police and HE STILL KEPT TEXTING AND EMAILING. This guy is mentally ill. If you read through the other poor reviews, you will see the pattern. Robin is extremely manipulative. YOU'VE BEEN WARNED.
- Kimberly J.

Unprofessional. Late. Have used lots of moving companies in the DMV area. I would go with another. This one showed up very late with two workers that had zero moving experience. I would avoid at all costs.
- Seth W.

Some of the reviews here on Yelp made me wary of my decision, but that's why I've decided to leave one of my own and let you know I would absolutely use this company again. My move was booked barely over a week in advance and they responded immediately, requesting run-of-the-mill details: loading/unloading addresses, summary of items, delicate or difficult items of note, and location terrain. I had a few questions related to my booking since it was done through a third party, and we emailed back and forth for a couple of days. Each time Katherine and Robin responded promptly, within an hour or two. The night before I disassembled any furniture I could, and moved the bulk of it to the room they would be using to get in and out of my apartment. I also put the furniture pads in that room, as Robin stressed the importance of renting them multiple times throughout our correspondence. Morning of, I was coming in from Virginia and received a call from the guys around 6:45am (we were scheduled for a 7:00am move) to let me know they were stuck in traffic and should arrive around 7:15/7:20. I was relieved, because I was also caught up in traffic on 395. We all convened at my apartment shortly afterward and it was straight to business. The two movers helping me immediately began wrapping up my furniture in the pads with cling-wrap they brought. If I thought to take a photo you would've been impressed - my headboard and armoire looked like they'd been professionally gift wrapped, and they did this for all of my furniture in a matter of minutes. Within the first half-hour, the truck was loaded and we were ready to hit the road. This was moving items from a shotgun-hallway English basement apartment with three narrow doorways, one covered by a staircase. They also helped me load my 55" TV into my car, since I would be driving that separately from the furniture in the truck. The same two guys helped me load, drive, and unload - when we arrived at my house in VA, they requested a quick walk-through to confirm where everything should go. They carefully unloaded everything and even unwrapped it all, cleaning up/discarding their plastic wrap and folding/stacking the furniture pads back in the truck. I requested 3 hours for my one bedroom apartment + travel time/distance of 30 miles from downtown DC to the VA 'burbs. The three hours turned out to be a perfect time frame and we lucked out with the weather. Everyone I dealt with from this company was professional, polite, and prompt. I'm grateful they were there for me and this move, because it saved me so much stress and trouble. I highly recommend DC Top Choice Movers for their incredible service, most especially because it's offered at a reasonable price for the level of professionalism they upheld.
- Carrie B.

Phenomenal experience with Michael and Deangelo. Booked them while booking my Uhaul and honestly, it was the BEST choice I have ever made for my back, shoulder, and parents. They were right on time, awesome to hang with, efficient, and careful with my stuff. We had two stops before getting to my new apartment, and they still moved everything out and in, in under the 4 hours we had allotted. Great experience and I would hire them again in a heartbeat.
- Lindsey S.

We used this company while moving from a 1 BR apartment to a 2BR apartment one building over. We did not rent a truck, so it was ferrying items across the way on a hand truck or furniture dolly. Mike and Leonard were not only early, but got the job done early, as well. Absolutely great service - will use them again next year.
- Stephanie M.

AVOID AVOID AVOID AVOID AVOID...unless you'd like your belongings destroyed and then called a liar to boot! While the movers were both very nice, I had to ask them 3 times to use the furniture pads I rented. They placed my wooden furniture finished side down several times, causing a great deal of scratching/abrasions on surfaces, as well as two holes in walls. I provided Robin (owner) photographic evidence of destruction, but he reported that because I carried boxes on the day of the move, he was free from any responsibility AND that he had asked his workers and they said that my husband and I destroyed our own furniture, makes perfect sense, right? I made a complaint same day, and was accused of lying because I did not mention my issues to owner during a wrap up phone call, which was 1.before I could even step foot in my apartment to survey the damage that happened, and 2. on one of the movers phones because Robin would not call me himself to close out. My biggest complaint is lack of accountability on Robin's part, and the verbal abuse and accusations. If you scroll through these Yelp reviews, you can see that he verbally abuses anyone who provides poor reviews, so I'm expecting it here too. The two movers were friendly, and offered to pack things in their own cars the day of the move, which was helpful. But the damage they caused to my property pretty much negated that and more. Additionally, they did not seem to know how to pack a truck efficiently, they had to be instructed every step of the way.
- Alexis M.

Very fast, reasonably priced and timely service. The owner was very responsive and flexible when it came down to schedule the move. The staff is friendly and knows what they are doing. They showed up on time and made our move a breeze. We got everything done in about 4 and 1/2 hours. I would use these guys again in the future.
- Yosif Y.

This company did not show up for my move this week. They didn't even call me to let me know. I had to contact the main company and they then contacted the drivers. I could say more, but do I really need to? I wanted to add onto my post one last thing. After this company failed to show up for my move and failed to take responsibility for it, they actually REFUSED to refund my money! I literally had to report them as fraud to my credit card company in order to get my deposit back!
- Isaac K.

Couldn't be more pleased with the service we received. Would give more than 5 stars if that was an option. Brought a 20 ft Uhaul from Atlanta to Alexandria. The communications prior to the move with Robin were great. Answered quickly and kept us informed as to the time within the window we requested. Rami and Rudy showed up on time and after looking at what we had in the truck and then the apartment told me to relax and proceeded to start unloading the truck. Even though I had booked a two hour slot to unload the furniture and heavy items, plus any of the boxes that would fit in the appointment, they unloaded everything within the two hours, and placed it in the right rooms. They also removed all the pads, folded them, and placed them back in the truck. They were very careful with our items, professional, efficient, and great to work with. I would definitely use them again.
- Rod M.

This team provided movers to help me when I rented a truck from Uhaul. They were on time, professional, friendly, and hard working. I had to move my furniture into a storage unit for some house updates and plan to use them to move back in.
- Gina F.

Somehow every time I put up a review the owner gets it taken down. I had an awful experience a few years ago. I'm not quite sure how Robin keeps on getting it removed. If you also look at his comments they are incredibly aggressive and childish. The movers were great. Robin was horrendous.
- Matt P.

I wouldn't trust the positive reviews. Look on Yelp, and many negative reviews on Google, at how the owner responds to negative feedback. The owner, Robin, personally attacks customers that leave negative reviews, claims they are fake customers, and has even revealed personal information on Yelp, such as name and employer. Childish and unprofessional. If things go wrong (and it looks like it's not frequent, but neither is it unheard of), the best you can expect from Robin is rude replies and insults. That was my experience too. Too bad. Politeness and willingness to work with customers tends to go a long way. I don't know who I'll recommend for movers in the DC area now, but I now know who I will recommend avoiding.
- John J.

Amazing! Great service very professional and efficient! All you would ever want in a moving company. My fiance And I have used them twice now. And this last time Durning a paramedic and they were awesome gloves masks and just all around nice guys! We moved from MD to WV on a mountain and our house is on a hill. No complaints no issues just great service! I highly recommend these guys for your next move
