About J.E. Ladd Moving

Throughout the history of Durham, Raleigh and Chapel Hill, one company’s legacy has endured like a perpetual monument: J.E. Ladd & Son Transfer. With horses, wagon, and a strong back, the young J.E. Ladd moved the belongings of families arriving at the old Durham railway station in 1882.  Later, in the early 1910’s he commemorated the new partnership with his son, J.E. Ladd Jr., by renaming “J.E. Ladd Dray Service” to “J.E. Ladd & Son Transfer.”  The father and son continued to craft a distinguished reputation by skillfully and carefully moving Durham’s early families and businesses. Thanks to customer loyalty and the inventiveness of the two Ladd men, J.E. Ladd & Son Transfer would successfully navigate through two world wars and a crippling Great Depression.  In the shadow of the flourishing father/son stewardship, grandson J.E. Ladd III became the next caretaker of J.E. Ladd & Son Transfer.  Under his proprietorship, J.E. Ladd and Son Transfer continued to relocate families and growing businesses in what would soon become the “Triangle Area.”  As the region expanded, so too did the footprint of J.E. Ladd and Son Transfer.

J.E. Ladd Moving Reviews

Outstanding family owned company. Great rates and professional employees. Made my crosstown move seamless. Movers took great care in moving my belongings while moving efficiently. Having been prior military I am used to working with moving companies and J.E. Ladd has been by far the most professional and easiest to work with.
- David Heider

I cannot recommend J.E. Ladd and Son highly enough. The rates are extremely reasonable and the service is without peer. J and Trevor were efficient, kind, and very organized. If I am ever moving in NC I will ONLY use J.E. Ladd and will recommend them to everyone I know.
- Claire Du Laney

They were awesome. Very professional, prompt, every part of the process was smooth from planing to the move. Overall a great mover.
- Franklin Santana

I am so grateful I went with Jay and his crew. Shout out to Tony and Dave who were professional, kind, and quick to ask questions and clarify when needed. Since my parents were downsizing, I had about 15 pieces (including antiques and a treadmill) to transfer. They took great care moving pieces out of my parent’s house to mine- they actually made it look so easy. They even worked a miracle with a recliner couch that was unlikely to fit through my basement door. To top it off, the prices were fair and affordable compared to other moving companies. Thanks for doing the heavy lifting and making this transition as smooth as possible! God bless you guys!
- Cindy Davis

We just used J.E. Ladd & Son for the second time. We were extremely pleased from start to finish. I was very impressed with the care they took with our furniture and possessions. All the guys were friendly and highly professional. You won’t go wrong in their very capable hands!
- Anne Gregory

So glad I chose JE Ladd & Son for my move! Tony, Dave and Steve were exceptional! I was told they would take great care of me and that they did. They charge by the hour but still got in, got it done and got out in record time (not to mention they loaded in Durham, delivered part of it to a storage bldg in Carey and the remainder to my new place in Chapel Hill). PLUS, they were the most economical of the movers that I had received quotes from. Hi HIGHLY recommend these guys. Like I said, they are AWESOME!
- Amy Smither

I wish I you had more stars because five is not enough. If you are moving these guys are the ones to call. The guys are so friendly and down to earth but that does not take away from how awesome they are at their job. They are so efficient at what they do and truly care about the fact that it is your stuff they are handling. Not to mention you will always have at least one owner on the job, you know these guys take it seriously. I cannot say enough about the crew. If you are moving and don’t use JE Ladd you are crazy. Thank you guys again.
- Mike Pisani

Best moving experience ever (and we've moved a bunch!) Rodney is the best, and the crew he brought out was exceptional! These guys worked together like family and treated us (and our stuff) with all the courtesy and care we could hope for. The pricing was very reasonable too, felt like we got our money's worth with these guys and then some. Would definitely recommend and use again!
- John Levins

The 4.9 Star Reviews are LEGIT... This crew was beyond careful and efficient with our move... Tony and Steve were hard workers that ensure the job was done correctly and in a timely manner... we will ALWAYS use this company for our moving experience!
- Wake N Break

From start to finish, the entire crew was so professional and cared as if it were their own move. Cameron came by to assess my apartment and I instantly felt trust and assurance. I appreciate how they accommodated my moving needs and were very customized in their approach. I also appreciated the honesty in how Cameron outlined where they have flex in managing my budget. On the day of packing and the move, the crew were the best I have seen (and me and my family have moved multiple times!) Professional, exceptional quality and took care of my things so well. Love the fact that all of them are either best friends or part of the same family. They also helped to put together a very tricky closet without a manual which was fantastic! With JE Ladd, you get exceptional quality from start to finish, and a crew who really care. I have nothing negative to say about them!
- N T

My 4th move with J.E. Ladd & Son. They are the friendliest and most helpful movers. Cannot recommend them enough.
- Lindsey Rae

Ladd and Son moved our office from one side of Durham to the other. They moved the belongings of 8 staff and 10 years of accumulated furniture, boxes and materials. Everyone working on the moving team was friendly, happy to be there and extremely courteous. I highly recommend them and suggest you use them for moves large and small.
- Jonah Sharkey

I can't recommend JE Ladd enough! From start to finish this was the smoothest move I have ever had. Communication with the company to organize the move with Cameron and Jay was straightforward, honest and easy. And the crew that did the work, Stevie and Tony, were OUTSTANDING! They were professional, kind and fast. And I have never had movers be so careful with my possessions! I will definitely use this company for future moves.
- Ann Yelverton

We had such a great experience having our move performed by J.E. Ladd and Son. We had 4 movers and all were professional and really attentive to details and ensuring everything was moved and placed with care. They even went the extra mile to ensure our washer and dryer was positioned correctly and in working order before leaving. They went above and beyond my expectations. I highly recommend their services!
- Marjory Charlot

From the initial estimate to the final box in our new home, JE Ladd was professional and efficient. David, Tony, and Trevor were prompt, efficient, and professional on move-in day. Jay was courteous and prompt with the estimating process (during the pandemic!), checked in the night before and after the move to make sure all went well. I've moved a lot over the years, and this was one of my best experiences. I'd recommend them to friends.
- Neel Sata

I was looking for a mover to move furniture within the state. I called three movers for quotes. I was immediately impressed with my initial conversation with Mr. Ladd! He is the owner of the company and he is the one with whom I dealt. It was so nice working with a family business. Our job was a rather large one. His bid came in lower than the other two movers! I am so thankful that I chose Ladd Moving Company to entrust my furniture. He did everything that he told me he would do and then some. He gave me several tips that would save me money. He and his crew showed up on time. He and his crew were a delight with whom to work! We had no damages. I will NEVER call anyone but Ladd Moving Company to move my furniture!
- Diane Poag

I can't say enough good things about J.E. Ladd & Son Transfer. We had a very complicated moving situation for a historic home and they handled everything beautifully. They were honest, hard-working, and did a great job. I highly recommend them!
- Stephanie Hudson

Communication and transparency was on point. They were quick, careful and efficient. Only thing I wish they did different was put something down on the floor once inside.
- Pete Campbell

This company is hands down THE BEST! They were very professional, courteous, fun, and knows exactly what they are doing when it comes to moving and packing. They made our move stress-free and took time to take care of our things. We will ALWAYS use them if we need to move! THANK YOU guys for everything! If you are looking for good, honest, hard working folks - you have found them with J.Ladd!!
- Kristen Baker

Ladd & Son provided excellent service and fair pricing for my move across Durham. They arrived early and completed the move quickly and without any obstacles. I am deducting two stars from my review because our movers did not wear masks. This was honestly surprising to me, given that the nature of their work, which involves manual labor (and thus heavy breathing) and given that maintain 6ft distance was not always possible. Furthermore, I was moving out of an apartment complex, meaning other residents on the hallway were put at risk during my move.
