About Dominant Moving Company

Before we started, our founders had been working in moving and storage industry and had an opportunity to witness that a lot of San Diego movers just did not care about customers and provided low-quality service at an extremely high price. So, they saw the opportunity to make the difference. When we began, we started small, just two guys, an old moving truck and an ambitious plan to become the best moving company that people would trust. From the very first move, our mission is to provide service that would make each customer completely satisfied. As a result, just a few months later we already had referred customers and good reviews online. A year later our past client would hire us again, we were getting more referrals, and more client reviews. Realizing that demand for our services is growing, we bought more trucks, hired more people, trained them to provide service the right way. Nowadays because of consistent work, our base of happy clients expands and we get more calls and requests for our services. We do an average of 1500 moves a year. And this number is growing.

Dominant Moving Company Reviews

Dominant moving was very professional, and performed the work quickly. We were not sure if using movers would work out, but I’ll never move any other way. I highly recommend to if you are going to hire movers to use Dominant Moving Company!
- Sam M

Great service- these guys worked quickly and carefully. They packed our big furniture with care and we’re very careful not to damage the legs of tables, beds, etc. they’re also super polite! Would definitely hire them again!
- Callie Brust

- Leo Konfino

The guys did a fantastic job! They moved me from San Diego to Fort Irwin and was very expedient! I’m definitely recommending Dominant Moving Company to all my friends and family!
- Jeffrey Tabler

Dominant moving company was top notch. They were very polite and very efficient. I was very nervous at first to hire a moving company, but glad I chose this one. Dennis and his team were awesome!!!!
- Tammy Simonds

Don't use this moving company! Upon arrival it wasn't communicated to the packers that they were packing my apartment. They didn't have enough supplies to pack my apartment, so I had to go purchase boxes. The lead gentleman, Dennis, and I conducted a walk through. Everything that was to be packed was laid out, and the packers were given specific instructions on ALL rooms to include the storage unit located on my balcony. They took 6 hours to pack a 1/1 apartment! While packing my white fabric bedroom furniture it was not wrapped in any sort of protection(common sense), and when they moved the furniture down stairs my headboard was resting on it's side on the street (it's white! ). A final walk through was not completed, and I was quickly urged to sign documents, so the movers could leavek it took 6 hours after all). I moved across the country, and once I got to my final destination, I discovered that the packers didn't pack HALF of my storage unit. (how was only half packed?) When I tried reaching the company to file a claim, I kept getting the run around. After about 2 weeks of attempting to contact management, I finally received a response. I was told that since the paperwork was signed, the company was not responsible for the packer's negligence. I was offered $50 to ship half of my storage closet, which is going to take about $500 to ship. I never received this so called check, and I plan to file a civil suit on this company. No costumer should be treated this unfairly/unprofessionally
- Brandie Grier

Best movers ever. They are totally best in that sphere. They did good job for $99 for two hours. Hard working. They moved me from third floor to third in other building. They did not make any scratches and broken staff. Fast and professional. Thank Vadim and Artem and Sanya for excellent and cheap job. March 2019 started great for me. Thanks god i met them.
- Alexander

Thank you David and two other guys who helped us move today ! Done quickly and efficiently!
- Maja Ceranic

I would 100% use these guys again. They just finished my local move from Mission Gorge to downtown San Diego. Loaded, transported, and unloaded in 2.5 hours. Nothing broken, no snags. Awesome communication. Very professional and experienced. In a nutshell: fast, professional, reasonably priced. If you are able, please tip your movers. It’s not an easy job.
- Phu Phan

Very positive experience. David and his team were professional, courteous, and worked diligently and nonstop till they got the job done! There was a small mishap when moving the furniture in. Accidents happen! Roman connected us with amazing Juan, who repaired the wall and made it look brand new! Thanks so much, we will definitely use your company again!
- Pam Zimmer

HERE is a moving company like no other, and to prove it I used them TWICE, occurring a year apart. So sit down with a cup of tea or coffee and be prepared to read a bit...convince yourselves there truly exists a local (San Diego), reliable, honest moving company offering far, far less stress than you might otherwise imagine. Here is my personal experience: During my first move in January 2018, DOMINANT MOVING COMPANY's Vlad and Alex moved not only the tons of very fragile stuff I'd carefully packed but also two heavy roll-top desks, a teak filing cabinet, an old fashioned ball & claw oak table/chairs, queen bed, a 7'x5' solid wood bookcase/entertainment center, an 8' wood-framed couch, and last but not least my mother's smallish zebrawood cradenza with a 1" solid marble top. NOT A DENT, not a scratch, not a chip on anything. And best, nothing broken. But the kicker is this: The couch had to be cautiously slid down from my apartment's outside entrance...from the THIRD FLOOR down FOUR flights of narrow concrete steps. Yet Vlad & Alex were unfailingly gracious and polite despite looking like (to me) a couple of massive Russian bouncers. Keep in mind those three stories up required a cumbersome elevator, which could not accommodate my couch, hence the stairs. I go into such detail because 2018 was incredibly stressful for me, and once again I found myself having to move...alone and in my mid 70s. Calling DOMINANT MOVING was a no-brainer since they already felt solid and familiar...and Roman the manager even went against policy (which I was unaware of) to move my huge plants, since they had moved them all the year before. And now in 2019 I had some "extras," like a 2' x 4' glass coffee table plus a 50" TV. THIS time I had the pleasure of collaborating with movers David and Javier. AGAIN the 8' couch had to go by way of the apartment's outside concrete steps...with the two of them approximately half the size of the "Russians" in 2018. Again, DOWN this time three stories via the same elevator with the rest of my 2-bedrm/2-bath belongings. But David & Javier were still marvellously fast, moving me into my new ground floor address from the one three stories up, in addition to my having them re-position heavy pieces several times. No problem. Sometimes David & Javier seemed more like quick shadows...quiet, focused, yet sweetly good-natured. I was so heartfelt grateful to have them...and grateful to manager Roman Pyanzin, who patiently acquiesced to all my tiring client picadillos and odd requests, including changing my original move date two or three times. No arguments, miscommunications OR damage. And cost was appropriate to our agreement, all fees clearly stated up front prior to the final move date, with no extra charges except for a standard additional hour deemed mutually necessary. Godspeed your next move, folks! Now you have a choice.
- Leslie Marnell

Used this company to move my 1000 sq ft 2 bed room apartment 30 miles up north with in San Diego..First the movers were very very slow ..took over 4 hours just to load basic furniture and already packed boxes 2) charged me $99/hr for 2 movers+ 30$ fuel surcharge.. turned out to be a super expensive 800$ move over 7 hours.. Furniture looked mostly OK minus a few scratches and scuffed walls...I would not recommend these guys..
- Gowtham K

Bad experience all the way around. Would not hire these guys. No customer service, very slow employees and smelled like weed- probably why slow. Caused damage by dragging my expense furnishings on the street. No compensation from manager/ owner- actually rude and charged my card without permission. Sad move. Estimated time was 4 or 5 hours, took them 8 hours. Charged for 8 plus double time on freeway. Beware folks.
- Eric Weissmann

First time using movers so my husband and I were a little scared. Did a bunch of research and decided to go with Dominant. Honestly BEST decision, these guys were fast, professional and polite. Did the whole move in about 2 hours which is very impressive considering that we have a set of HEAVY recliners, 2 TVs both over 65", heavy boxes Ect and we moved to an apt in the 5th floor. If you are looking for movers and can't decide hands down one of the best customer service experience. Thank you guys! If we move again we will be calling you.
- Sheyla Cruz

Very professional & good rates When necessary, would use them again!
- Susan Meyer

I thought I forgot about my unhappy moving experience last year until I saw their truck stopped in our community today. I hope today their client can feel happy about the experience, since when I moved last year with them, it was an almost awful memory. I moved from one bedroom one bathroom apartment (2F) to my current apartment (1F) which is only two blocks away. I prepackaged and I did a lot of moving work by myself including moving packages and small furniture. Still, although the quotation was about 3+ hours, finally it was over 7+ hours and I participated in the moving procedure for almost all these 7 hours. The movers assigned to me were young; I guess it was their part-time jobs for extra money for school. They worked slower than the other movers I previously hired from other moving companies in east coast and northern California; and they walked slower than me. I was exhausted moving packages and they told me “great job!” I felt sad because I had to move faster because they did not do a great job... Several small things were missing on the way and one light was broken. I still paid tip and totally the bill was about $700+. The worst experience and the most expensive ever so far. I tried to remind them to walk and work faster but they complained that because I did not live in a house and most of their clients are living in the house so that they could move faster and don’t need to walk! There were stairways/shortcuts, but they would rather detour to take elevators even with empty hands. I wish I could totally forget about this; however, once I saw their truck today under my window, I still felt the bad feeling I suffered last year.. The owner sounds like a good man and he compensated me for the broken light, that is why I add one star. I hope it was because of the movers I was assigned to did not feel well that day; otherwise, their working load/billable methods are not very professional.

I've hired Dominant Moving company for 3 times, and it's always been a pleasure experience. I'm surprised to see the 1 star reviews b/c that's completely different experience from what I had with DMC. I'm moving across town with 2b2b worth of furniture, and the whole process took ~3 hours with 2 movers that's very efficient and careful, and kind. - Communication was smooth, I was able to change the scheduled moving time without problem. There's a client portal you can easily track your appointments with them - Furnitures were well taken care of. We had a fine wardrobe, couch, a big TV and other stuffs, all were packed up with plastic wraps/blankets. After they were moved to the new place, there was only few scratches which is acceptable given the heaviness and elevation the movers had to deal with. - The moving was fast, loading & unloading, packing, all was fast - they *ain't* trying to get more money by slowing down the process.

Roman answered my call for an urgent moving job that I had end of the month. My roommate and I were moving and we were double booked by another moving company and stuck in a bind. The time was already 1 pm and everywhere else I called was booked. He said he would call me back as his drivers were at a job and not sure how long they would be. He called me back 10 mins later letting me know they can be to us by 4 at an awesome rate! Not only did they show up an hour early, they were also very efficient and conscious of both our possessions and our health with it still being a pandemic and all. Arsenio was extremely professional and made sure the job was done right and to completion. Recommend these guys over all if you need a move job.
- Thatfool Noah

I wish I got their names but the two gentlemen who helped us out today were professional, quick (got the job done in just two hours), and thoughtful. There was no damage to any of our belongings because everything was carefully wrapped and moved. The wardrobe boxes were also a nice touch. For context, we were moving from a one-bedroom apartment to a house (a 15-minute drive). Thank you for making our move the least stressful move we’ve had to date!
- Leilani Gobaleza

Not only was one of the movers over an hour late, they took their sweet time and ended up charging me over $600 to move a one-bedroom apartment from Normal Heights to North Park. When I called to complain, Roman the customer support person said he would mail me a check to partially reimburse the tardiness of the one mover and I never received a check. I've tried calling and no one answers their customer support line. DONT USE THEM! There are plenty of reliable movers in SD, unfortunately I booked mine too late and these people were the only moves available, I now see why...
- Mariza Lockhart

Absolutely efficient, professional, courteous and everything was intact and in pristine condition ! Thank you thank you thank you!!!!! You are the real deal!!!! Customers for life!!!!!

This sorry company has taken my money and walked away. I had hired Dominant Moving Company to move my 700 sqft. studio to a storage unit. I had pre-boxed and wrapped my belongings before hand. The movers knowingly moved my heavy two piece tool box and only used one 1" strap to "secure" it. The toolbox fell over and damaged itself and my smoker grill. After having to pull teeth on the phone for Roman to email me acknowledging the incident by his movers, I paid up. Roman has declined to respond to my multiple emails and gave no sense of care when I called asking to resolve this issue quickly as I was moving out of state. The "4 days" to reply as stated by Roman has far passed and still I have heard nothing. Also for the movers themselves, apparently no one has told them fastest way from point A to B is a straight line as I watched multiple times the slow movement of my furniture get taken for a stroll on the dolly halfway around the parking garage as if my ottoman needed a walk. Secondly paying for a timed service should not include your movers stopping for a drink between locations.
- Marcus Eubank

I hired this company to move me and they stole all of my electronics, $15,000 worth of merchandise. They owner roman pyanzin sent the 2 movers to my house named manny-manuel lemon and steffon nutall. I noticed while unpacking both of my game consoles are missing all controllers to both devices, laptop, 2 ipads, camera, singing bowl, kitchen knife set, beat headphones, laptop bag, backpack. The owner asked me to hold off until thursday on calling the police and to wait until the boys got back into town from a big job in utah so he could ask them himself face to face so that they would tell him the truth and bring it back. Thursday came and roman never answered the phone nor called me like he said he would. These people robbed me of not only all of my expensive electronics, they robbed me of things i can never replace, photos on my camera and memory cards. Not only did they try to move my 1 bedroom apartment that was previously packed upon pick up! they tried milking me for 9 hours to move at $85 an hour. these people are dirty thieves and must be stopped‼ do not hire these animals‼ disgusting crooks they are‼ I EVEN TIPPED THEM $50 each for robbing my house upon also buying them food for a 9 hours $900 move. I basically paid these guys to rob me blind! I FEEL SO EXTREMELY VIOLATED Im sick to my stomach.
