Hands On Moving Reviews

This company is amazing. I've used them twice to move - once from Hamden to New Milford and then again from New Milford to Wolcott. Even with their hour drive to New Milford, plus an hour to Wolcott they were less than more local companies, quick, efficient, and professional. I have also recommended them to coworkers who were also thrilled with their service. I will use them for my next move without hesitation.

Xzavier and Hands On Moving moved my furniture back in after having floors refinished. They were so careful and helpful and even willing to change the scheduled move date at the last minute. Highly recommended!
- Erin Eberhardt

I have used Hands On Moving twice now. Both experiences were pleasant and the work was completed efficiently and error free. The last time I used them they were able to quickly get my 80 year old father moved to a new apartment on short notice before a snow storm. I highly recommend this company.
- Anthony Brockman

These guys were such a HUGE blessing!! They took what had been an incredibly stressful move & turned it around completely!
- Julie Williams Stoner

The movers (Richard and Gavin) arrived three minutes to the time scheduled. I was initially impressed by their punctuality. Aside from that, they are hard/smart workers. I had a ton of things moved and it seemed close to impossible for two people to do within the timeframe allotted. But, with them, there was a method to their madness and they got it done. Aside from being professional, they were also very personable. I wish them the best!
- Rakeesha Jones

Great Movers!
- Carla Hinds

The guys from Hands On Moving were absolutely fantastic. They took good care of our belongings and were professional and attentive at every step. I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of their services!
- Steven Giacomi

Hands on? Hands DOWN the best local moving company in the area. Reliable—the owner showed up at my door at exactly the time he said he would. Reasonable—even though there were delays on my end, the job finished on time and on budget. Friendly and helpful and careful and sensitive. Good people. Would definitely use again and recommend.
- Alex Taubes

From my initial contact, Hands On Moving & Storage was attentive, highly responsive, and reliable. It was nice to have them come out and assess our home we were moving out of before providing an actual quote. We needed furniture picked up from 2 separate locations and they did everything efficiently and carefully. The quote was very reasonable as well. Lastly, the team showed up on time, discussed who was going to start where among themselves and got to work immediately. Everything was done within the allotted time range and all of our furniture was in tact. We highly recommend this company!
- Jamie Boussicot

I have used Hands on Moving twice and both times they were great. Very professional, they did a great job. They were right on time. I would highly recommend them for any move!
- Kate Jules

I would 100% recommend this company. I had to move some things from a storage facility in PA to CT, and they handled it. They were punctual, courteous, and responsible. The gentlemen who did the actual move were very pleasant and took a lot of care of my things and were also very professional. Ti was also very happy with the price of the move. It was much better than other prices I was quoted by other companies . Overall an excellent experience. Will definitely use them again if I need to move.
- Diana Bradley

the crew was very professional and moved my item safely out of my house . would recommend to anyone and will use again.

Hands on Moving is the most professional, well run moving company I've ever experienced. Their quality of service and company culture is as good as any in any industry.
- Eric Wolff

Ever go on vacation and want to move there? I did that - in the middle of a global pandemic! So then the question became, how do I pack everything I own, NOT being home?
- Liz Dederer

When I last moved I wasn’t happy with the company I used. They were very expensive, took a long time, the crew left for 40 minutes for a 5 minute drive between homes to for snacks and didn’t even tell me and I found some nicks in my furniture. I am so grateful that a friend referred me to Hands On Moving this time! The guys were on time (and called when they were close), courteous, friendly and hard working. It took half the time for half the money and the crew was invaluably better! I highly recommend Hands On Moving!
- Jackie Grusz

Not a moving customer, but one of their trucks just came up on my left and took a right hand turn in front of me at a yellow light. I was at the corner of Rt 34 and Racebrook Road. Almost ran me off the road!
- Nadine Karlinsky

Disappointed in the quality of work they did and the price they demanded to be paid.
- Jevy flynn

My experience with this moving company was great! The crew was on time, very professional, quick, and efficient. The price was very fair. I would hire them again!
- Maria Gutierrez

I just used Hands On to move me into a home in Connecticut and they were the hardest working, most professional and courteous team of movers I have ever used. There were no hidden or unexpected charges for my move either (something I can't say for other moving companies I've used in the past). The moving team showed up on time at 8 AM and they worked quickly and efficiently to make sure they got my job done within the amount of time they quoted me (3 hours for 4 16 foot POD containers). I can't say enough about how good this experience was!
- Steven Hylinski

Hands on moving made my job as a Realtor so much easier. My client's closing was delayed four times with an out of state move. Which had my clients and myself extremely stressed. Randall gave my client a call before hand to provide them with comfort and notion that everything will work out for the best. That alone put my client at ease. They did an amazing job very professional and efficient. Extremely hard workers! I will be referring Hands On Moving and Storage to all my clients! Job well done fellas!
- Davante Mallard

Hands On Moving and their crew did an amazing job with both my move and my parents move! They were quick, efficient, and careful with all furniture and boxes. Highly recommend Hands On Moving for your next move!
- Talia Vazquez

I would have given 5 stars because the move went well but the owner needs to work on his social skills.
- leeny jay

I just had Hands On Moving clear a pile of junk our of my basement. They were reasonably priced. They arrived on time and were finished quickly. I would use them again. My basement is now ready to become our workout area.
- Martin Squire

Worst moving company I have ever hired !!! I had them move my furniture into a storage and they did not organize anything . I had to take everything out and do it myself . They damaged my table . Spilled water all over the basement floor without telling me ! I gave the complaint and got asked if I was sure if they damaged my brand new table ! Overall Extremely unprofessional! I Would definitely not recommend.
- Izamar Lopez

We used Hand on Moving for our relocation from South Windsor to Simsbury. 3 friendly guys arrived on time and worked pretty strong and quickly. The downside is that they were not super attentive and our pretty new furniture has now some scratches here and there: nothing dramatic that can be avoid with a bit of attention. No hidden fees and pretty fair pricing. They will be the first to call for the future relocations.

PLEASE READ-AVOID MOVING NIGHTMARE $1,200. Things started out pretty smoothly when scheduling and speaking to Billie about moving out of a three bedroom two story townhome and into a one story house Moving day arrives and the movers show up around 9am(the time frame was between 8am-11am). They showed up in a big moving truck that was pretty filthy but it was a moving truck so no big deal. What was a big deal was the first mover who arrived and the fact we were sent only two movers? We were paying for three. The first guy was out of shape and had a horrible stench that was absolutely revolting. We had to call Billie and ask her to send a third guy to help move our furniture and the third guy was called from a different moving company. Not even two hours later and the first guy looked like he was about to drop dead of a heart attack. I believe he was asthmatic but even if he was, why would he be in this line of work. The first guy,who was overweight and out of shape, pretty much stayed in the truck because he physically could not do anything. The other two movers, bless their souls, were kind and professional and were unfortunately left to do the move on their own for the next several hours. We expected the move to take about 3-4 hours but the movers didn’t leave until 6:30 pm. And even then, there was still stuff at the townhome we had to take. Now everything was packed fairly well and was in boxes so fairly easy to load and unload. The movers were also sent in without any tools or stretch wrap. They hardly had any moving blankets and I had to make several trips to retrieve tools. Luckily I had bought moving supplies myself so the furniture was able to be wrapped but most of my furniture received fair amount of damage. My furniture is custom made and priceless. We had to make several trips with our two cars to finish grabbing the rest of our stuff(we stayed up for 24hrs) and when we spoke to Billie again she gave us a “discount” by paying for two movers instead of three to take off 1/4 of the total price but we still ended up paying $1,200. Billie also tried to blame us by saying we told her it was a two bedroom home. Overall it was the worst experience I have had and wouldn’t wish this upon anyone. We were exhausted mentally and physically. Do not go with this company, they are a scam and I will forever remember how bad the stench of the first guy was. It was truly a horrid experience.

I called several moving companies for the purpose of moving a large safe from my house that was left by the previous owner. All declined when I described the massive size and weight. I then called Hands on Moving, explained in detail the massive size and weight of the safe that needed to be moved, and the next day they were at my house at the agreed upon time to begin the process. After discovering that the 4 men that arrived for the job would not be able to fulfill the task, the owner Xzavier called 2 more men to assist. His comment to me was that we promised to move this and we will! I had my doubts, but was extremely encouraged by his word and optimism. Finally after a couple hours the task was completed. I cannot begin to express my appreciation for the prompt service, professionalism and outcome. I would highly recommend them for any moving job.
- katarina curtis

Great experience. I needed a quick move and only gave Hands On 3 days noticed with a specific time frame. They were onsite within minutes of our scheduled time. Very professional guys moved everything, taking care since it was raining. Not a scuff or bump. I would HIGHLY recommend them for any type of move. Thanks Guys.
- Adam Hoffman

Hands On Moving did a fantastic job helping us move. They were very communicative when we were trying to figure out what we needed. Their guys arrived on time and were professional. Everything arrived in the same condition as when they took it all from our old apartment. Would definitely use them again in the future.
- Yasmin & Sean-Michael McAlpine

Wes and Isaiah were incredible, moving us across state lines and even helping us pack our minivan! They were also very safe, and nothing was broken moving into our 4 bedroom home.
