Lion and Bear Moving Reviews

Dominique and El did a great a job! They were fast, efficient and friendly moving me into my one bedroom apartment (and even tackled the stairs!). Would definitely use them again!
- Jessica K.

I had 2 movers help move my half of a 1-bedroom apartment. The company communicated well with me throughout the day, and it took the two men 4 hours to complete the job from my apartment to my storage unit. They were also the most reasonably priced movers in the area, by far. They also treated my items with respect, which I appreciated. Not sure if they have any bigger trucks for larger moves, but my stuff from my apartment almost completely filled the truck they have.
- Zuri D.

I had a great moving experience with Lion & Bear Moving from beginning to end. They quoted me the best price of all of the companies I checked with and were always responsive to emails. Abdullah and Ali showed up on time, worked quickly, efficiently, and super hard the entire time. They were also very careful with my belongings which I really appreciated (I learned during my last move with a different company that not all movers are careful). I would definitely use this company again and highly recommend them to others.
- Susan C.

The owner reached out to me when I was shopping around for moving companies and he gave me the most reasonable quotes and it was super easy to book. The 2 guys that came to help couldn't have been better and they came early. They work super fast and they were so courteous. They were super careful with my belongings and they have a great attitude! 10/10 would use them again and I plan to for my next move! Great great moving company and highly recommend! Thank you!
- Richard K.

I can't sing enough praises for Lion & Bear. I called to reschedule my appointment the week of due to schools and businesses shutting down due to Corona and they easily accommodated me. I was able to push my move in date up by two days. They arrived early (which worked out well) and literally had my one bedroom apartment moved out in about 45 minutes. I wasn't moving too far away but they unloaded in just around the same amount of time. They were effective, pleasant, and no a scratch on ANYTHING! I would highly recommend and use them again.
- Morgan C.

Great service - quick, painless, and professional. Have booked twice and would book again.
- Daniel F.

Would highly recommend. Reached out to a bunch of other companies for quotes and received ridiculous rates. Lion & Bear got back to me quickly with a very fair minimum 2 hour charge and hourly rate. They arrived promptly and moved very quickly. They did not damage any items. They were sure to confirm which items needed to be moved. The overall cost for us to move a 2 bedroom townhome ended up being even lower than we had hoped it would be. Again, would recommend for anyone looking for movers.
- Michael S.

El and Dominique were prompt, worked quickly, and were extremely helpful. This is my second timing using L&B, and my girlfriend also used them...would definitely use them for our next move!
- Marc M.

Awesome job was really satisfied with the whole crew from my move from VA to NY no scratch no pain no complains
- Shudyap D.

This is the second time I've hired lion and bear for a move in DC! They're wonderful. The rates are good and the work is always done quickly. I recommended them to a friend last year and she had a good experience, too.
- Michelle S.

Absolutely loved working with these guys! We had a move that involved elevators, stairs, and large furniture and these men handled everything beyond our expectations. Domonique was the lead mover and he was not only incredibly friendly and personable, but he took every extra step to make sure that our furniture was secure and had the least likelihood of being damaged in the move. Additionally, the move was quick! Even though they were careful in moving things and took their time, they didn't waste time, either, which we really appreciated. Though I hope we don't move again in the near future, I would definitely recommend these guys and use them again. I've heard too many mover horror stories, but these men put all of our worries at ease.
- Siena K.

I asked them to help moving in March. It was a disaster. 1. They didn't do the packing as they promised. It was only myself who packed everything and the only thing they did was to sell me some moving boxes for extra money. They still asked money for the time we spent on packing things during which they were partly waiting and occasionally moving a stuff or two to the elevator. 2. I have a fragile wardrobe and that's why I chose a moving company who claimed to protect the furnitures during move, but they told me they can't promise to preserve the wardrobe when I showed it to them. It was broken into pieces in the end. They also scratched my wooden table which was very sturdy. I didn't see the scratch until they leave, and when I saw it, I realized they didn't wrap the table with blankets or did any protection. I was not able to spare time for this comment until now, but I'm still feeling terrible about what I have experienced. When the moving finished and we were talking about the broken wardrobe, the movers told their boss that the wardrobe was already broken at the time before moving, the dishonest of which really shocked me. They were very rude to my furnitures. Because they are two strong men in front of me a slight women, I felt pressure and didn't pay much less money than they want. But the truth is they broke the wardrobe because they didn't protect the furniture as they advertised at all, not only because my wardrobe was in fragile state. And the pictures show what I saw on my table after they left, which stopped me from sending them ti

These movers were great on my first move, but the second was horrific. Movers unbeknownst to me left my son's day bed in the loading dock off a Main Street while they ran to the apartment I was moving into and of course the bed was stolen. They offered a small discount, but replacing that bed which was less than a year old cost me more than the entire move itself and they would not pay for its replacement. They then had the audacity to ask me to review them on yelp....well here it is.
- Diana V.

Eljan was fantastic, he was courteous, professional and on time. The move took a little longer than planned and a bolt from our bed frame was misplaced but Charlie, Eljan and his crew were very accommodating and resolved our concerns. I have no problem recommending them to others in the future.
- Nick F.

Love these folks! They're prompt and attentive to all of my many concerns from when I first asked to hire them to all of my changes with my moving. They changed dates and added in another location for more stuff easily. The confirmation was easy and detailed. The movers arrived early and were prepared and ready to go. They worked non stop seamlessly and did everything just right. I was so happy to have these lovely gentleman moving with care and precision- I would hire Al and Ali anytime for anymore! It was amazing! Such nice folks!! Great timing and price- felt like such a wonderful move because of them, even in a rainy day. Amazing!
- Katherine L.

This moving company was easy to book and very affordable. The movers were pretty good but took a surprisingly long time. They definitely slowed down a lot. Towards the end of the moving I got into the truck myself to get things moving a bit faster. If my family had not have helped this would have taken 5 hours for a one bedroom apartment move. A few items were damaged in the move. One of our white ikea lockers was stratched on its side. The water bottle holder of our peloton bike was broken off, our brand new floor was significantly scratched as was a windowsill and window pane. I emailed them about this and they have been extremely slow to respond and frankly not interested in actually helping. They claimed that they cannot send a claim to their insurance because it would be immediately rejected but they would cover the wood scratches themselves with paint. As if painting over a new wood floor with anything in one section is a solution. Cannot reccomend, especially if you are moving into a new home and value the cost of your personal belongings.
- Rachel U.

Charlie booked my move incorrectly and failed to confirm date of move, 6/15/2020. I had to call to confirm. He didn't know & thought it was rsv in July. I didn't like how some of my furniture was handled, i.e. one of the employees kept placing my $500 bicycle just outside of the moving truck as he moved other pieces of furniture. I kept telling him not to do that, for it can be stolen unattended. Both men grabbed the sides of my leather arm chair instead of carrying it from the bottom. As another rater pointed out, I jumped in to help and hasten the moving process. No disclosure of payment method at the end of the move. Cash is cheaper, but 4% surcharge for using a cc. I had to contact the mgr/owner to get my receipt.
- SharePoint D.

They arrived right on time. We had more boxes than expected, but no problem! They were quick and disassembled and assembled our furniture with ease. Thank you!
- Oliver S.

Freaking incredible! Quick quote, excellent customer service, super friendly, and efficient moving staff. I couldn't be more thrilled with the service I received today. I hope I don't have to move again any time soon, but if I do I'll certainly be using this company. Thank you so much El and Abdoulaye for an incredible and stress free experience!
- Chloe T.

Can not say enough great things about this company! Starting with a very quick initial response and a very straightforward and honest quote, I was beyond impressed. I also appreciated getting a call on the day of the move to see if the movers could show up *sooner* than originally requested b/c they'd finished another job earlier. Although I wasn't available, they showed up a few minutes early to ensure that they were in place and ready to go at the original start time. Very nice, friendly, considerate and hard-working crew - even with a 3 story walk up condo! THANK YOU Lion & Bear and will be happy to recommend you, as well as hire you again if/when the time comes!
- shannon m.

They were the best movers!!! They charged us HALF of what other guys wanted to charge us for a long-distance move from Washington to Charlottesville, VA. They came in masks and wore them the whole time. They disassembled my bed frame and put it back together at the new place. Even though it was a walk-up apartment, they did an amazing job and it went so quickly. I cannot recommend them highly enough.
- Olivia K.

Amazing movers! Helpful and quick and they were so nice also. Would highly recommend this company. There were also no hidden fees people warned me about.
- Ariel D.

Efficient, courteous and most importantly honest folks. Did a great job moving my 1 bedroom. Would definitely recommend!
- Seif A.

Movers showed up on time and were very courteous. They got to work right away and were efficient. I was overwhelmed at the amount of moving companies in the district, so I am so glad I just contacted friends and took their recommendation of Lion & Bear. Will definitely use their service in the future!
- Marc S.

Utilized Lion &Bear Moving today for a move from Virginia to Maryland and they sent 3 guys, they were professional, fast and efficient!!!! Communication was A+, they even hauled junk that I didn't want for an additional fee; however hauling fee was very inexpensive!!! Thanks Lion &Bear, your movers were awesome and I'll definitively recommend and use you guys again!!!
- Tee Y.

I've never left a bad review, but our experience with Lion & Bear was so terrible that I'm hoping to spare others' time and money - use Bookstore! We had an incredibly disappointing experience with Lion and Bear for our move from DC to NYC. In loading our Pod, they left two closets worth of heavy items out. Beyond that, they packed incredibly inefficiently and hastily - our movers in NYC kept inquiring who we used because "you had the worst movers we've ever seen." Our move was ultimately delayed over 6 hours because of their poor use of space and lack of care/attention, and many of our items were bent and broken. I called to express my frustration and asked to speak to a manager & my call was never returned.
- Rachel L.

Was very pleased with my move! The movers showed up on time, handled my belongings with care, and wore masks the entire time. Pricing was affordable, and I was pleased with how diligently they wrapped some of my items such as my artwork and my indoor bicycle trainer. Would use again.
- Andre G.

Had a small move in my house that required 30 minutes but needed professionals. Called around to multiple companies but they were all astronomical. Lion & Bear came in with far and away the best quote for a professional team. They were courteous and professional through the whole process. Two big guys showed up and did exactly what was required quickly and efficiently. They were careful of my house and belongings. If I ever have to move this damn sleeper sofa to another floor again, they are my first call.
- Dan C.

I found these fantastic guys on Yelp. My daughter had to move out of her apartment in the middle of the pandemic quarantine and I was stressed thinking about it. They showed up on time (even called to let her know when they arriving) and moved everything quickly and professionally. The price was very fair and I would highly recommend them to anyone in the DC area.
- Bonnie M.

I chose Lion & Bear Moving because they provided me with the lowest quote for my one bedroom apartment move and I didn't regret it! Due to COVID-19 and changed leasing office hours, I had to push the move back by 2 hours, which they accommodated easily. Al and George arrived promptly at 11am and had everything moved out in a bit over 1 hour. It took slightly longer to unload due to issues with the apartment elevators - not their fault. They hurried to stay within 3 hours, which I appreciated. They were very polite and efficient. I'll recommend them to anyone!
