Golden Bay Relocation Reviews

These guys are amazing - i.e. highly professional, friendly, and very helpful. I would use them again, and recommend them to anyone! Our move didn't have the easiest logistics - it was raining, we had narrow streets, and our old landlord was very particular about how things were done. They handled it all with aplomb. They paid attention to the details, were careful while packing and unpacking, and were mindful about where we wanted things placed. They also didn't require too much of our attention, which meant we could worry about all the other stuff involved in moving...or just relax when we could while they did the work. They are great, and I would recommend them to everyone looking for a professional, friendly and reliable mover!!
- Kunal K.

I have used Golden Bay a few times since my first review - they're still great. I don't like having to move, but they make part of the process easy.
- Chris H.

Absolutely fantastic. I've used Golden Bay twice, and my closest friends have too repeated. They are the best. There is never any funny business. They lay everyone out upfront, their staff is so professional, and I felt supported before, during, and after. The movers didn't damage anything, and they were fast. I paid in cash and got a discount (there was also a Yelp deal they recommended at the time which saved me $20). A+++++
- Ian H.

This was our second time moving with Golden Bay. Vanessa has been very thorough and responsive in her communications leading up to the moves. She was able to help us confirm our date, even as it shifted a couple times. On moving day, Fernando and Jesus were awesome! They were personable, professional, and thorough. Upon arriving at our apartment, we did a quick walkthrough together and designated which items would not be moved. They were efficient and careful in packing up the items we weren't able to box up, disassembling our bed, wrapping our furniture to protect it, and expertly packing the moving truck (quite the game of Tetris!) After a quick lunch break, we headed to our new home. Fernando and Jesus accurately moved boxes to the appropriate rooms, helped position large furniture pieces where we wanted them, and even secured a bookshelf to a wall, so it would be safer for us. Moving can be stressful, but the move itself shouldn't be. It can be difficult to judge whether a business is trustworthy. Golden Bay is, so if/when we move again in the Bay Area, we will be using them.
- Jessica S.

We moved again (two years later) and even with a different crew, STELLAR JOB. I have had some horrid movers in the past and these guys worked SO HARD and so fast and never complained about our crappy packing job, our disorganization, or how heavy and awkward our move was (and it was BAD). There were slight mistakes made by the newest guy on the team, but they handled them beautifully, moved the boxes to the appropriate room, and several guys on the team checked in with me to make sure everything was where it belonged before they left. Singing their praises all over the place. What a great group of folks who are amazing professionals.
- r t.

I ended up needing to use bother their packing and moving services, and they were excellent. They were efficient, kind and incredibly hard working. Will plan to use again.
- Evan W.

The moving team (3 people came for a 2 bed) came at the start of the move window (8 am) and were very friendly. Being that we are moving during a pandemic, safety for everyone was an concern but the team wore face masks the entire time and were careful to keep space. They were able to complete our full move within 3.5 hours and this includes professionally wrapping furniture. The team made an otherwise stressful move relaxing, would absolutely recommend them!
- Valerie D.

I rarely write reviews and this one is long overdue but for anyone who needs movers, look no further! Golden Bay Relocation movers are top notch and the best moving experience I've ever had. Three guys helped me move from SF to Marin last September on literally the hottest day of the year. It was a tough move with tons of stairs (about 90 steep stairs on both sides), a lot of heavy furniture and a ton of boxes. The crew of three not only worked for 12 hrs with just a lunch break and water breaks, but did so with smiles and incredibly positive attitudes no matter what challenge faced them. They also expertly assembled furniture, sbd even helped with placement suggestions. Not a single scratch, break or scuff on walks. I was beyond impressed and they made a long and exhausting move (in 90 degree weather), fun and even joyful. Huge thanks to this amazing company and I'll never look elsewhere for movers as long as I'm in the Bay Area!
- Tara C.

Although we had a few scheduling incidents the moving day The company really care about their customers They made a refund and sent flowers to my new place to made up for the scheduling incident Golden Bay Movers is a company that really cares about customers satisfaction Hola lol definitely use this service again
- Dirgni M.

Alright, so the start wasn't great since my move was cancelled last minute. So I was pretty upset since there was some lack of communication and it really stressed me out. BUT, I rescheduled it for the next day. I had asked for 2 but they sent 3 to compensate for the inconvenience yesterday and offered me a 30% discount as well. The guys were amazing! A godsend if I may say. I thank GBM for the fantastic service and only advise them to improve their communication since people depend on them and it can make or break their day.

This is my second time using Golden Bay Movers and I have nothing but good things to say. My first move was with them in 2018 moving from SF to Oakland. They did break my table but were fair and gave me a good discount on the total order. You can also pay in cash to get an extra discount. Two years later and here we are again. My bf and I were moving out of our 2 bedroom condo in Oakland to a home in Contra Costa County. The movers were insanely efficient and finished in record time (even assembling our more difficult furniture back together (we noticed too we had accumulated quite a bit of stuff - please be realistic with how much stuff you have when reserving). During a time like this too where we have to wear masks and everything, it was a very professional move overall. We really appreciated their hard work and making a hard task at hand a really easy one. We had a long month of contracting work and fixes at the house and the feeling of finally getting to move in and without much stress was amazing. Thank you all again! These were the random tips that I'll remember most this moving process: 1. Judge a moving company by their worst reviews (I value efficiency and nice to work with - you do have to spend an entire day with them) 2. Closer to your move-in date, double-check the more recent Yelp reviews (I could tell about a few weeks prior, they were having some scheduling problems so I made sure to call and confirm we were still good to go 2 days prior).
- Ann Marie L.

I wanted to leave an update to my review since I was very impressed with how customer service dealt with the situation. Michael from the company called me to apologize profusely about the move and the lack of communication from the dispatcher. He offered me a full refund, and also sent flowers to my new home. How they handled the situation gives me hope that it was an isolated incident and that they're working on rectifying it.
- Cecilia U.

Golden Bay contacted me and followed up with everything based on the emails and messages I had sent them. I shared all the details of my move and I was surprised by how well they handled all the issues. It seems that internal company communication has some flaws but they're working on it. They appeared to be very understanding and genuine so I appreciated the effort. I'm looking forward to a seamless eventual move out from their storage and into my new home.
- Rebecca L.

It's been about 2 months since our incident. I was ready to cut my losses but wanted some closure why things went down the way they did. I was quickly escalated to Chloe whom explained to me that there was really no answers why I was never contacted and seemed genuinely sincere and adamant about fixing the issue. I had already set up with another moving company and was really traumatized about using golden bay movers again so she insisted on allowing the company to cover the moving costs. I was still pretty bitter but having our new mover's expenses covered did ease the sting. Long story short, nothing came in the mail for the next few weeks and I was ready to move on, then our expenses got finally covered. Chloe consistently checked in to make sure we received it, if not then she would've had someone hand deliver it to us. I update my review with 3 stars for the efforts to correct their mistakes and 1 extra star for Chloe for going that extra mile, especially so during the pandemic.
- David H.

Awesome crew. Packed everything carefully and quickly. Moving is pretty stressful, but the guys made the experience bearable. Good communication, prompt arrival, extremely nice packing, solid handling of several large pieces of furniture, flawless assembly and disassembly. We felt in strong, steady hands.
- Roman G.

I had a truly excellent experience with Golden Bay movers. From the very beginning, they set very clear expectations of what to expect and how to make the move as smooth as possible. On the day of, the movers were actually early, called ahead to let us know that they were coming and their approximate ETA, and were incredibly hard-working and skilled at what they did. The movers themselves went above and beyond in the service that they offered. Their customer service has also been excellent. We accidentally left our key with the mover and we had to facilitate a drop off which was incredibly easy and smooth. I am so thankful that I went with this company and I truly appreciate the work that they do!
- Bella M.

Golden Bay did an excellent job helping me move apartments (within San Francisco). They were punctual (arrived early actually), efficient (done in 4-5 hours), and did an excellent job moving everything. There was some small damage to my desk, from being strapped too tightly in the truck, but they took care of this issue immediately. Highly recommend booking with them.
- Darren H.

Very large truck great movers very friendly. Nice and clean would recommend to any one who needs to move. Price is amazing. Best service I've had in a long time. Very respectful and the set up my desks bed and furniture. Very happy with outcome.
- Joshua J.

I just want to preface this by saying that I've used Golden Bay Relocation for three other moves prior to this one, and my experience during each of those times were great (5 stars) - the movers I had were professional, moved quickly and efficiently, and didn't damage either the move-from or move-to locations or any of my belongings. However, this time was a very different experience. I don't know if things have changed due to the pandemic or maybe they had a change in management, but regardless, this experience was a huge downgrade from prior times. Since we were moving slightly more items this time (2 of us instead of 1), we had 3 movers instead of our usual 2. 1. Lack of efficiency: The movers arrived in their truck, and when we came outside, they were parked a couple of houses away. They started backing the truck up, and we thought that they would simply move the truck closer; an easy task since it was a very wide street. However, they were shouting things to each other for a while, and trying to help each other out... I'm not sure to do what, because when they finally were ready to start, the truck was still one house over, barely moved, and it should have been simple to back the truck up on the wide street. This whole process took them about 15-20 min, and they did the same thing at the move-to location, wasting at least 30 minutes, which they billed us for. 2. Broken items: We packaged all our items ourselves, but I had also done so on all my previous moves with them, carefully and with a lot of packing foam and bubble wrap. My husband noticed them tossing boxes clearly marked fragile on to the floor, and being very careless with them, almost dropping them several times. We ended up with a few broken plates, a broken mug, and a broken shelf. 3. Damaged house: During prior moves, they had wrapped all items carefully and made sure to hold sharp corners of furniture and move slowly in tight spaces, so that the previous units were never damaged during the move. However this time, when moving the couch up the stairwell, they scratched up our newly re-finished hardwood floors, and scratched up paint in the stairwell. They also banged open one of our doors and then taped it tightly to the wall, leaving a dent from the doorknob in our wall. I realize that this is partially our fault for not realizing during the walkthrough that the door was missing a stopper, but the damage again reflects the carelessness with which they approached this job. When I reached out to them after the move, they expressed a lot of concern and told me that usually in these cases, they require estimates from 3 different repair quotes for the damaged stairwell/wall. However, after touching base with the crew supervisor, in the end they offered a $100 refund (without asking for the repair quotes), which barely even covered the wasted time by the crew unnecessarily maneuvering the truck. What I actually wanted, more than money, was a reassurance of what they would do to prevent this from happening in the future. Thus, I won't be using Golden Bay Relocation again, and will no longer recommend the company to my friends. I'm giving them 1 star for my previous good experience with them and 1 star for semi-addressing my concerns.

I had Fernando and Alex as my movers and they were 100% awesome and professional. The rate was extremely fair; they discount on weekdays. The whole move took 4 hours, as I was moving from one city apartment to another. They deconstructed and reconstructed both my bed and desk, which was a big plus for the moving package. When I left two items on their truck, they brought them back to my place later in the day. Also, the person who set up the move via email was extremely responsive and informative.
- John Palowitch

I have never had such a stress-free move. These guys are professional, fast, and very pleasant. They showed up on time, they communicated with me every step of the way. Alex and Herson (sp?) were top-notch, very careful with my stuff. I had zero damage, which is unheard of in the history of moving. Fernando was the crew supervisor and he pitched in at the end to help complete the move. But at no time did I feel that I had less than their complete attention or best work. I can't recommend this company enough and I will always use them for my moves.
- Tara G

Yes, you probably read a couple of times that these guys are fast. But that's an understatement. Not only are they extremely fast, but they also take care of your furniture. We can highly recommend them.
- Ralf Wondratschek

My review is 3 yrs overdue! Golden Bay Relocation was amazing for our move, and booking everything through Vanessa was awesome, in fact we are moving again in July, and I am re-using this moving company. Fast, thorough, and careful with your belongings! I highly recommend them!
- Tiffany Hartsinck

I cannot praise this company enough. Came highly recommended by multiple colleagues, and exceeded expectations. They were very easy to deal with on the preparation side, showed up on time, very friendly, courteous, followed the building's instructions to a tee, also no negative behavior towards each other, etc. They were fast, yet careful where needed. And last but not least, when the final tally came, there were no hidden surprises, things matched the quote. 13/10, would use again.
- Rogier 'DocWilco' Mulhuijzen

This one are so fast !! So clean, professional, they help us packing, super friendly we love them !! If he have to move again we for sure will call them again and again !!!! You are the best team!!!! THANKS
- valeria aluni

These guys are professional and kind. I used to use Shamrock Movers but they weren’t available. And now I am glad because I found Golden Bay Relocation Movers. They moved me into my storage units and now I will be calling them to move me into my new home. And I forgot to mention they are quite reasonable. But the service, care, and conscientiousness is top notch.
- Dr Morgan Jensen

Love Che Fico! The name has a dual meaning: cool and fig 🙂 the interior is beautiful and the food and cocktails are excellent if on the pricier side. Expect an hour+ wait unless you have a reservation, and reservations at peak times hard to come by. Grab a drink on divis while you wait!
- Christopher Williams

Absolutely unprofessional! It's 7:15pm and we're still waiting for our packers to arrive. We had booked a packing service today in the morning and moving service tomorrow in the morning. They left a VM last night to give us a super last minute notice about changing the appointment for packing from the morning to the afternoon - and still no show. We're moving out tomorrow morning and had reserved a packing & moving service with them a month ago - they have already collected a reservation fee as well. No updates since three hours ago when they said the packers are still moving at another place. Basically, they moved our packing appointment to the afternoon so that they can squeeze in another job, but due to the delay they have still not showed up and it is now past 7pm! No one is picking up the phone and calling us. We're so worried and stressed out bc we need to move out tomorrow morning. We had taken time off work and even arranged a nanny to watch our toddler outside the house all day in order for us to pack. This is totally unacceptable.
- Elizabeth Kim

Edit: my previous review was from a 2019 move and I had rated them 5 stars. After recommending them to several friends, I used Golden Bay Movers again this year and the service quality was substantially lower, so I am amending the review to include this experience 2020: Crewed showed up with 2 movers instead of the 3 I hired. The change was supposedly because crew member had high temperature (covid times) but this was not communicated until they arrived which I found extremely unprofessional. Crew was nice but not very experienced. They did not do a walk through as it's common, did not communicate start time, and did not protect at-risk walls and corners until I requested. Long story short, took 5 hours to load up (expected 3 max - all furniture was disassembled and everything packed), 2:30 travel time (I arrived in 45 min by car) and 2:15 to unload for a total of over 10 hours for a 2 bedroom move. During the move, they ran out of blankets and attempted to load some furniture items without blankets. I called management throughout the day to intervene and no action was taken until many calls and threats to write a review about it. They promised an extra worker a few times during the day but he did not show up until 5pm. A manager also showed up and helped address the situation by bringing blankets and urging the crew to follow protocol. They offered a fixed price of 3 hours load and 2 unload at the 2 man crew which was fair and showed they are willing to work with you to fix the issue. However, the offer wasn't didn't make it any cheaper than expected with an experienced crew, it only normalized for their inexperience. I also had to help them move the entire time and total was still about $1,200 +tip. Our move lasted almost 10 hours when it should have taken 5-6-max with an experienced crew and the original 3 person crew. I would not use them again, but the company does have experienced movers. I guess it just depends the crew you get. Ps: Vanessa called at the end of the day to follow up and said feedback was noted but no action was taken. 2019: Just finished a move in SF with these guys and it's by far the best moving service I have ever experienced. From the first contact with Vanessa, and later with Fernando, everyone was extremely knowledgeable and attentive. They know the Bay area well, and they even knew relevant details about the building I was moving from (where trucks should park, etc). During moving day, Milton and William showed up on time, and were ready to with a smile on their face. They worked hard to get us moved out and moved in within 6 hours. They had all the right tools and got the job done with no hiccups. Lastly, they got my giant, super heavy, pull out couch up a tiny curved stairs, somehow. I would 100% use them again and would recommend them to anyone looking for professional and experienced movers in the Bay Area.
