Help-U-Move Reviews

We scheduled with Help-U-Move to move the heaviest items left in our home. Scheduling was easy and their communication was great. Trent and JR were wonderful. They knew what they were doing and it showed. They were careful with all our things, used blankets, plastic wrap, etc. Most importantly they were respectful of our time. We will definitely use them again anytime we have hefty things to move! Totally worth it! Thanks guys!
- Courtney Salazar

Jr, Chase, and Sean helped us move across town and they did a fantastic job! They were efficient and handled the furniture with care--we couldn't ask for better movers!
- Bethany Eager

Fast and friendly service. Easily giving a 5 star rating. I was lucky to have Arend & Marty helping me.... ask for them!
- Katina Flower

Second time using Help-U-Move and they did great again! Oscar and Trent are rock-stars! They got everything loaded up in U-haul in an hour! Moved across the country and nothing broken! I would use again if still in the area! Thank you guys for another fantastic move!
- Truck Princess

Eric, Jr, Tre & Adam did a great job. Professional, efficient, easy to work with, safe. 100% recommend.
- Lauren Misek

Two guys came out and were very respectful of our stuff and home. They got everything moved from our house to the storage unit in just about 2 hours. Everything was stacked as neat as humanly possible in the storage unit as if Marie Kondo had done it herself! We will be using them again for sure. 🙂
- Heather Stewart

After years of moving myself! I finally decided to hire a moving company! Help-U-Move was great! Austin & Trent were efficient, friendly, fast and careful with all my personal belongings! Would highly recommend you schedule your next move with Help-U-Move!
- Nancy Torres

Great group of guys, did a great job for us! We had a chaotic week with delays and they were very understanding and flexible to get the move done! They went above and beyond getting the bedrooms set up!
- Nancy Rieke

We truly can’t thank them enough!! These hardworking guys moved us from a 3rd story apartment to our new house Chase and Josh work great as a team they were quick and knew exactly what they were doing they considered our belongings!!! Very professional kind and friendly highly highly recommend !!!! Thank you Help U Move for the amazing help !!!
- Anai Negrete

This company was recommended by my landlord. I’ve never used a moving service before but now I can’t imagine doing it any other way. Josh and Eric was prompt, super helpful, and fun to interact with. They took great care of my belongings and managed to get me out of my third floor apartment into my new home. Highly recommend!!
- Rachel Mowry

A team of three kind and courteous men helped move a piano from my house this morning. They were phenomenal! They even watched out for each other’s safety and did repeated safety checks of their equipment to avoid an accident. My house and sidewalk were left in the same condition as they were prior to the move. I was extremely impressed. Thank you!
- Cat Johnson

Chris and Tré where awesome. Everything was done fast. Nothing damaged. An all around great experience.
- Joseph McCants

JR and Chris made a tough move much simpler with their professionalism and great attitude. They were thoughtful in their approach to loading boxes and furniture into a storage unit for easy access after the fact. Will definitely use Help u Move again.
- Erin Holloway

I have used Help-U-Move twice in the last 2 years, they are a great company to work with. They are professional and careful with the items they move. I highly recommend them.
- Marc Taylor

The group of three guys Blake, Paul and Josh were great quick and courteous. They were very professional making sure they had the correct rooms labeled as well as putting things in the right spots like the bed on the correct wall, tables in the right place, etc. I've already recommended them to my coworker who is moving and the prices were reasonable for me to not move myself and rent a truck. the owner came out and have a personal estimate that was spot on so I knew exactly the price before I agreed.
- Anthony Moore

Very good job!!! Truly recommended. Very well organized and clean. I will call you back if I need!!! The manager and the all move crew are kind and very professional. Thank you
- Jeremiah Wilkins

It's always a crap shoot dealing with moving companies and all the extra and secret charges they attempt to add on. Help U Move assisted me this week with my move and I can't state how happy I was with the process from start to finish. Easy process to request a quote online and quick turn time. Very honest and up front about the process and they did exactly as they said the would. The moving crew team were respectful and highly efficient and provided amazing service. Highly recommend this company.
- Kevin Rus

Sean and Jr moved me from a 3rd floor apt to a 3rd floor apartment. Bought boxes, and they picked them back up after I had unpacked and reimbursed me (seriously THE BEST way to go). I had pretty bulky furniture that I wasn't around for when it was assembled. They dis-assembled everything, and re-assembled it in the new apt. Saved me a lot of work, worry, and hassle. They even took apart my patio table when we realized it wouldn't fit through the door, and re-assembled it outside on my patio for me. Took a bit longer than expected so they had another guy come and help finish up. The overall price was higher than originally quoted, but... 4 flights of stairs and re-assembling furniture.... I'd pay it again. Great service, highly recommend!

DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY. We recently contacted Help-U-Move for our upcoming move to Portland, OR. We submitted a request via their online form (Request-A-Quote) INCLUDING the address we will be moving to. They came out to our house to provide us with an estimate. A few days later, we received an email indicating that they would not be able to do our move because they can only do so with their affiliation with Wheaton Van Lines (GREATER than 500 miles). This is NOT stated on their website. This should have been determined prior to coming out to our home to provide an estimate. Sending us an email at 10:00pm is not the correct way to address their mistake.
- Joy J.

Friendly staff... reasonably priced... professional... Help U Move has it all! I had to do 5 moves in 6 weeks between work and home. The teams were on time, friendly and a joy to work with. Adam, Koty, Reyes, Junior, Linden, Craig, Raffy... everyone is great and they seem to enjoy each other and their work. Steve has developed a company culture that results in a highly engaged and professional team. I will use them again!
- Julie F.

I want to give a huge Thank you to Koty, Johnny, Ed & Adam S. for working their tails off to move me. These guys worked very hard to pack me up and move me and they had to go up hill with everything and they did a wonderful job and didn't complain at all. Very Friendly, they work well as a team. great guys, thank you! The only reason I didn't give them 5 stars is they were 2 1/2 hrs late but it wasn't their fault and believe me they made up for it.
- Leigh H.

Had a great experience with my move. Excellent customer service all around from Steve to the movers. Total time was less than 3 hours. Movers were super accommodating and took great care of my possessions. Definitely would recommend Help-U-Move and would use them again if needed in the future!
- Lindsey H.

I want to thank Help U Move for make our moving experience great. First we had Adam come out and complete a walk thru. My wife dealt with him and said he was very nice and helpful. From the office we had Todd. This is the kind of service that you love to have. He was on the spot keeping me updated and his follow thru was awesome! On the day of the move we had 3 great guys - Miguel, Blake, and Austin. We got a phone call on the morning of the move about their progress and eta to us. Once they arrived they started right in. The move was swift and no damages. The three gentleman were great!! If you are looking for a company that treats you well and acts professional this is your company. I recommend HELP U MOVE for your moving help. Thank you again for the great experience.
- Ralph B.

Paul and Trent were great with our move. Everything was done efficiently on time or even early. We had some small issues with a broken coffee table and the cost was immediately deducted from what we paid. We would highly recommend this team and would use them again.
- Emily B.

Thank you!! Thank you!!!! These guys were great!! I sold my Dads house in Burbank and needed help with the move. I live in Southern California and only had one day to do the move. Set up everything over the phone and they did everything they said they would. To top it off the day of the move it was snowing and they showed up on time and did everything perfect!! If you need a reliable and fair priced moving company, this is the one!!
- Bo P.

Help-U-Move did a great job of moving our family!! Very nice guys and did good work even in our not so great weather.Very kind, accommodating, hard working people helping us move! A great move on our part! I'm thankful our family had them help us, as we moved into our home. I highly recommend this company and you'll be so glad to give them a call! Thanks Help-U-Move!!! God bless
- Danika S.

What a nice experience! Working with these guys was about as easy as a move can get. They arrived promptly at the storage facility in Bellevue, loaded up a full 10x20 unit before I could even gather my thoughts, and drove the truck back to their facility in Pasco, where it was stored overnight and the goods delivered ON TIME in Richland the following morning. Can't get any more simple or professional than that!

We had a last minute move and were able to book two movers within a weeks time. We got Sean and Chris and they were both great. They arrived on time and worked through consistently. They were friendly and had a great helpful attitude. Our move was pretty straight forward (we only moved to a different unit in the same complex) and the guys were patient with us as we finished packing up items here and there. For a one bedroom and an office move with a sectional and about 12 boxes, we got charged for 3.5 hours. They do charge for the drive time it takes to get to your location (port to port as they say). Their hourly rate is very reasonable and they did not have a minimum which was nice. They come prepared with lots of moving material and even laid down some tarp for the carpet which was a nice touch as well as corner guards to prevent scuffs. Our items made it safely with a few minor scuffs here and there but nothing significant. I have moved once to twice a year for the past 6 years and these movers have definitely been among the most professional. We will definitely use them again for our next move!

All we can say is, wow. This experience moving was by far my best ever since doing it while in the military service. We've finally unpacked (2 months out) and checked over our belongings. They took care of us. It started with Adam and the inspection/estimate. He was prompt and VERY courteous. In fact, this company was the first to reply to my Yelp quote request. And the ONLY ones willing it seemed to do an onsite quote. Otherwise, all we got was one based on a standard 3BR move. He walked through and answered all our questions and asked to see everything. He explained the entire day of packing and then moving progress. He gave us quotes based on them packing and moving us, or them just moving us. He never tried to upsell us or entice us with unrealistic numbers. We scheduled both services, as the price was better than for us to do it on our own. The packing was scheduled, but I had initially given him the wrong date. They adjusted it accordingly and made sure that I was satisfied with the arrangements again. Our packers, Austin and Blake, arrived promptly when they stated they'd be there. They called first to alert us they were inbound. They had the quote and walked the apartment, ensuring they understood exactly where everything was and what they could/could not pack. They worked efficiently and quickly. We were surprised at how they just knocked it out. And their professionalism was exemplary!! They made sure we were comfortable with everything as it progressed and that they were being diligent. Next came moving day. It was a little rainy and overcast. But this didn't stop our crew of Sean and Chase. They came in and hit the ground running. Boxes flew out of the apartment at a good clip. They made sure to take care of our belongings, even so far as making two trips, since they didn't want to try and shove our couch, loveseat, and ottoman all into the back, potentially breaking something in the process. Upon arrival at our new home, they did a walkthrough inspection with us. We showed them where items would be moved, based on how they were labeled. They moved everything downstairs from our apartment into our new home without incident. The price quoted matched the price we were charged, including the packing materials. All our belongings made it safely, without any breakage. They may have even gone a little overboard on the cushion, but it was much appreciated. I am glad we hired this business, and would gladly use them again, and recommend them to others.
