Lake Union Movers Reviews

★★★★★
I compared three local movers when we were moving from Bothell to Woodinville. I chose this company as I felt they offered the best price. So glad I did! The three movers were on time, friendly, helpful, and respectful. They moved quickly and efficiently. The cost estimate was right on and the move was accomplished in three hours. The communication with the office was also the best customer service. Definitely use this moving company!
- Karla Thompson

★★★★★
Super impressed by Lake Union Movers! They were so fast, efficient and careful with all of my belongings. I appreciated that they took time to take some of my furniture apart and put it back together well. They also offered up advice on location of my furniture that I was unsure of. I'd highly recommend. They made my moving day a breeze!
- Chelsea Dunckley

★★★★★
Just had a great move this weekend. Super quick too! Scheduling process and prep was very smooth as well.
- Sara Raymond

★★★★★
I recently worked with Lake Union Movers and I have to say it was one of the best moving experiences I have ever had. Joe was very helpful and reassuring- the team showed up and loaded the van SO fast, the unload was even more speedy- and NOTHING was damaged! I would absolutely hire them again in an instant.
- Danessa Gray

★★★★★
We hired Lake Union Movers to help us move between condos in Downtown Seattle. The service was exceptional, from the initial consultation to the scheduling to the actual move. They are prompt, professional, courteous, efficient, and respectful of our belongings and properties during the move. We highly recommend them.
- Jen Hsu

★★★★★
We took their help last year when we were moving, very professional work and they are very careful with all your stuff. Will definitely hire them again

★★★★★
This was by far, the EASIEST move I have ever done. Joe and his crew were not only prompt, but also an absolute delight to work with. I’ve never seen such hard workers in my life. We had such an incredible experience with them, we recommended them to another company, and they had the same raving reviews that we did. We have an office of over 100 people, and not one box was misplaced. Easiest day of work that I have had in a very long time. Wouldn’t go with any other moving company in Seattle, other than Lake Union Movers. Also, really appreciated how it was such a family run business. 5 stars!!!!!!!!!!!
- Jamie Boyle

★★★★★
We just recently completed our second move with Lake Union Movers in as many years. During both moves I was incredibly impressed with Joe (owner) and his moving teams. First off-communication and scheduling are always very clear. No room for confusion on either end. And the movers themselves are tremendously careful and considerate when moving, being sure not to damage anything in the slightest. I worked closely with the team on both moves (though didn't have to) and found that every member of each team washed-working, professional, courteous and seemed dedicated to meeting the high standards that Joe has set for this company. If you want things done professionally and carefully, but still quickly and at a fair price, this is your moving company. I won't move with anybody else.

★★★★★
We hired Lake Union Movers for packing and moving in September. We had to move to our new place quickly, so we were happy to be able to get some help with packing. They were very, very careful with packing, especially with our breakables. Everything made it to our new house without any damage. The packers and movers were also very efficient - they were able to complete our move much more quickly than I expected. I hope we don't move again for a long time, but when we do, I'm calling Lake Union Movers again.
- Katherine Shiffner

★★★★★
I can't believe how fast and easy Joe and his team made our move. Neither property was particularly easy to get into/out of, especially with a giant moving truck. But everyone was cheerful and friendly and just got right to work. Highly recommend!
- Terri Dimaio

★★★★★
Since the year 2000, my family and I have had to move 6 times, and I have to say, my experience with Joe and the entire Lake Union Moving crew was absolutely the best ever!! Caring, professional, courteous, careful, attention to detail, on time and under budget! I highly recommend this team to anyone who is looking for a moving company!!
- Kimberly R.

★★★★★
I had a small move from an apartment in Bothell to an apartment in Ballard. Lake Union Movers had all my stuff in the truck in about a quarter the time I thought they would and when they found out I didn't have a car they offered to give me a ride! I highly recommend Lake Union Movers!

Great communications, care, and customer service! Good rates, on time, worked quickly and safely, and were kind and thoughtful. Highly recommend!

★★★★★
We used lake union movers yesterday. They were PHENOMENAL! They dealt with so many challenges (giant couch that didn't fit in the elevator, navigating large antique pieces up a tiny walk up hallway) with ease. From the day before my move when I got the confirmation call I knew I was in excellent hands. The woman who confirmed my move answered all my questions and really put my mind at ease around what to expect. When the movers showed up (Joe, Joe and Jay) they were on time, friendly and professional. They were also highly SKILLED and knew how to do everything from taking apart a treadmill to safely hoisting our giant couch from the second floor patio when it didn't fit through the stairwell. They were able to navigate tight spaces without harming furniture movers have dinged in the past. They were calm, communicative, and worked as such a well functioning team even when things got stressful. Their truck came outfitted with supplies like free extra wardrobe boxes for us to use, blankets and a full tool kit for dissembling last minute things. Moving is so stressful. Do yourself a favor and book Lake Union Movers to make things go as smoothly as possible. I will never consider another moving company as long as I live in Seattle this family runned company has my business!

Lake Union movers were great in helping me with the last minute move that I had to do over the Fourth of July weekend when my original movers cancelled on me. They were quick to respond to my request for a quote and They were very professional and brought a crew of experienced people to help. They also brought furniture pads, dollies, and extra catch all boxes. They were well coordinated and had different people assigned to each aspect of the move. Their rates were lower than other moving companies in the area and they got me out of my old place and into my new place within 4 hours (2br, 1bd) to (1br, 1bd). Thank you to John and lake union movers. I will definitely be using them again.

★★★★★
These are the guys to use! We used them in March upon recommendation of a friend and they didn't disappoint! This is what moving should be like, these guys take serious pride in the work they do. Excellent communication, efficient and impressive use of time, respectful of property, and at a good price.
- Katherine C.

★★★★★
Lake Union Movers were fantastic! Scheduling a moving date was quick and easy with Joe, who was professional and quick in responding to our inquiries. His team were so fast and efficient with the moving process. They noticed we had smaller items to move and they offered to let us use their wardrobe boxes instead of us having to move them ourselves. Everything was moved out our one bedroom into another in just under a few hours. Never had such a stress-free moving experience. I highly recommend them!
- Elizabeth N.

★★★★★
We had an excellent experience with Lake Union movers! They were reasonably priced and worked hard even on the extremely hot day that we had reserved to move. Nothing was damaged or broken. We had a 3 bedroom household to move and we hired them to move all of the furniture. I would highly recommend and I would use Lake Union Movers again!!
- Danielle B.

★★★★★
Lake Union Movers are the best! We hired them to pack and move our 3 story townhome into a single family home and everything went quite smoothly. Two packers had our townhome all packed in 5 hours, which was very impressive considering the last time we moved ourselves from a one bedroom apartment, and it took my husband and I about two weeks just to pack. The move took only a bit over 4 hours with three movers and they left all my furniture assembled, all the clothes hanging in the closet, and all the boxes in the room where they belonged. The estimate Joe gave us was very accurate, and they actually came in a little under it so that was the cherry on top. Joe and his team took care of most of the move so the stress that usually comes with moving was almost completely gone by the time the actual move took place. I recommend them 100% and will definitely call them back the next time I have to move.
- Paula P.

★★★★★
Just finished moving with the help of Joe and his team, Darius and Justin. They were so quick, professional, and offered to even rearrange my furniture. My initial estimate ended up being much less, and I'm so grateful. Joe was communicative from start to finish. Kept me updated, was clear, and honest. Definitely worth hiring these guys. Moving gives me anxiety, but this was the best moving experience I've had, literally.
- Jenae T.

★★★★★
We reached out to Joe for a move from Seattle to Issaquah. Joe was extremely quick to respond and provide answers to the multiple questions I had. We were able to quickly coordinate a time and date for the move via email which is super convenient. On the day of the move, I was notified prior to their arrival which is perfect in addition to arriving on time! That's always a huge plus since we were on a pretty tight schedule. Because we had a lot of our items packed already, they were able to move everything from our apartment in Queen Anne to Issaquah in 2 hours (including the drive) which is crazy fast compared to the initial estimate of 5 hours. It probably helped that we did our move at 9AM so traffic was light. Overall, amazing experience. Nothing damaged, nothing broken, extremely courteous team who work hard and do not waste a second of your time in an effort to provide the best service they can. Definitely a 100% stress free move as advertised. I would highly recommend them to anyone else looking for movers.

★★★★★
Moving a 4500 square foot house into PODS for a cross country move was something I thought I could tackle with a few day labor guys. No way - packing PODS isn't easy and not something I wanted to mess around with at the risk of damaging our stuff. Joe, Jadon, Xavier, and Jacob were all extremely hardworking, professional, easy-going, and knew exactly what they were doing. There are a lot of moving companies - I'd recommend you call these guys first and get on their schedule.

I lived in the same rental house for 7 years...my husband moved in with me after we met, and friends came and went as roommates before that. Needless to say it was daunting to consider moving not only from the house emotionally, but also to a 1 bedroom apartment (even not ten minutes down the road)! Joe and his team were AMAZING. I can't overstate their excellent attention to detail, speed, care, and efficiency. Joe called me the day before the move to go over the final list. He also gave me a window for arrival the next day. Even though they arrived well within that window, I also got texts prior to that keeping me up to date on any changes to the schedule. Within an hour, our entire house of boxes was loaded. We met the truck at the new apartment building and Joe and team took it from there. We found out the day prior that there was a snafu with our apartment building and we no longer had a reservation for the freight elevator. Joe took it in stride and made it work, problem solving as he went. Unloading took a little longer than loading because of the elevator but everyone kindly took boxes and appliances to the correct rooms which made less work for us when unpacking later. Moving is stressful. It's a fact. But my husband and I looked at each other at the end of the day and commented on how little we fought, even through that stressful day! I attribute this completely to Joe...he was confident and efficient and all of stress went away bc I knew I could trust him and Chris and Anthony. I would use them again in a heartbeat, and next time I might even splurge for their packing services!

This review is way overdue by a year, but very much deserved. We had the absolute best moving experience with Joe and his team. They busted out the job quickly and efficiently, and the team was super friendly to work with. We've since recommended them to a few friends and family.
- Jessica L.

★★★★★
My family used Lake Union Movers to move across the state. We had a wonderful experience with them during a very stressful time. All employees were extremely positive throughout the 3 day process. They literally ran everywhere when not carrying heavy things.... They were on time. Knowledgeable about moving complex things, ie a piano. They were respectful of our home and our belongings. The final bill matched the bid. We actually obtained 3 bids prior to hiring them and chose them for competitive price and professional behavior. I would not hesitate to use this company again.

Joe and his team are great. Joe was very professional and came out to give us a quote for our move. We were moving from the 5th Floor of a Belltown Apartment to a House and the cost was super reasonable. His crew was efficient and so careful with our belongings. 3 guys loaded a large 2 bedroom apartment into a truck, transported it 4.5 miles, and unloaded into a house in less than 3 hours (less than the quoted time). We packed our own boxes, but they offer a packing service as well.

This review is way overdue - Lake Union Movers completed my move across state on 4/1/20 - but so deserved. The basics: they are polite, professional, punctual (not going for alliteration here, but it's happening), affordable (as compared to 3 other companies), and honest (brought me a $100 bill they found crumpled under my dresser. turned out to be movie money, but good on them for bringing it to my attention). From first contact with Joe, to emails with Hanna-Jo confirming the move, to day of move and the next day move into storage, the team was incredibly easy and efficient to work with. Big thumbs up.

I give these guys 5 stars. Moved yesterday and they did an outstanding job. Great communication before move. Showed up right on time, everyone masked. Move was efficient, safe, and fast. Good price too. Special shout out to chris, jay, and Sebastian who made it happen. Would definitely recommend Lake Union Movers to anyone, and would specifically request chris jay and Sebastian next time. Those guys are the lick.
