Michael’s Moving & Storage Reviews

DO NOT USE! I hired Michaels for a cross country move a year ago and it has been a nightmare. They were late with delivery and they had subcontracted the job to third party movers, which I was not given notice of. When these 2 totally unprofessional guys showed up one was old and could barely lift anything, and the other was a young kid with no experience. My husband and I ended up doing most of the heavy lifting ourselves. Our furniture arrived with nearly $20,000 in damages and Michales has been so impossible to work with in resolving this issue. Their "insurance" company Anthem (which is actually more like a review board that recommends course of action to Michael's) sent me through so many hoops submitting a claim. After the "not to exceed" 90-day response period was up after I filed the claim, and I had been following up with Anthem for weeks, they told me they could not process my claim due to failure by Michaels to pay its bills. At that point I got in contact with Michael's who told me they moved to another insurance provider and would reprocess the claim through them. I continually followed up with Michaels, having NO idea whose hands my claim was in at that point. Heard nothing, and no response for several more weeks. Then Anthem (the original provider) sent me the letter that they would recommend Michaels award me $294.00. I was in shock.Their recommended settlement amount did not even cover reimbursement for the repair quotes I was forced to get for the claim, which were explicitly guaranteed to be reimbursed. It was time consuming, frustrating and the most asinine experience. Over a year later I have been pushing and pushing for a resolution, and still have no answers. I have finally gotten a lawyer involved and will continue to push and take legal action. This is the most unprofessional company I have ever worked with. They damage property, they are not transparent in their pricing or procedures and they are totally unresponsive. Do not use these guys. Trust me, they are far from the only game in town and I just hope it catches up to them eventually. Highly unprofessional. Dealing with Michael's is a nightmare and they do a bad job. Look elsewhere!!

I moved locally this summer with Michael's Moving and Storage. This is the fourth time I have hired movers to move to/from/within the Boston area, all with different companies. Unfortunately, my experience with Michael's Moving and Storage was the worst of the four. The Good: The movers arrived on time, completed the move in a timely manner, and were generally very professional. The Bad: Once paid my deposit, it was very difficult to get in touch with a representative by phone. While the movers wore masks for the duration of the move, they had the masks pulled down below their noses most of the time. The movers did not treat my possessions with care (see photos for examples) -- they lost several items, including a ladder and small rug, which were picked up but not delivered. Nearly every item of furniture with handles/knobs was delivered with at least one missing or broken knob. Overall, my furniture was much more banged up than in previous moves (even though past moves required a lot more stairs). Finally, the pricing for the move was not transparent. I had a 24hr gap between my leases and they told me they could do this with a $150 overnight fee. But there were actually several additional charges associated with slitting the move over two days -- none of which were included in their initial quote. Although I asked for a conservative quote for the move (I was moving for work and needed the charges pre-approved for reimbursement), the final cost of my move exceeded the estimate, despite the move requiring less time than expected. Many of the extra fees tacked on the price were due to "company policy" and thus easily could (and should) have been reflected in the initial quote. I will not use Michael's Moving and Storage again and I would not recommend them to a friend.

This is my second time using Michael’s and I’m thrilled with the service they provide. Setting up my appointment with Will P was easy, he’s a true professional. I had my whole home packed up and moved out of state by Miguel and his team. Not only did they do a great job, but they were very careful during the whole process to maintain covid safety standards. Every person involved was friendly and professional, and there was zero damage to any item moved. If you’re moving locally or across the country, do yourself a favor and get Michael’s Moving & Storage to help you out.

Quality, professional movers. I used Michael's Movers for a local move in the Boston area. They arrived on time, and took excellent care of all my belongings. Everything was delivered to my new apartment, and set up exactly the way I wanted it. They use plenty of blankets and tape, so nothing gets damaged. Overall I can't recommend them enough. Well worth the money to have peace of mind that your stuff is fine and will arrive safe.
- John Coughlin

I used Michaels' Moving this past weekend for our move. I was highly impressed with their punctuality, professionalism, and efficiency. We had a lot of furniture and boxes as we were a family of 4 and had previously lived at our last place for over 15 years and accumulated a lot of stuff during that time. They were done within a few hours and honestly, the price wasn't too bad.
- Ashley Liriano

Very pleased with the service by Michael's.I moved locally to the greater Boston area, the crew came on time and very efficient. They took care of everything from packing, loading, and unloading. If I have to I will defiantly go with Michael's in the future.

Michael’s movers SAVED THE DAY! Bryan at Michael’s Movers was kind, patient and an excellent communicator. It turns out that we were not the only ones leaving California and moving companies were in short supply. The original mover we planned to use couldn’t load the truck until AFTER our house closed and the new owners would have moved in. In a panic, I reached out to Bryan of Michael’s Movers who I had talked to earlier in my moving research phase because I recalled being impressed by his responsiveness and overall customer service. Bryan took inventory, gave me a competitive quote and held my hand through the entire cross country move. The team who delivered our furniture to our new home were the absolute best movers I’ve ever witnessed. They were cautious and careful all while managing to be quick! I highly recommend Michael’s Movers.

My husband and I recently moved a 2 bedroom apartment (4th floor walkup!) in E. Boston and Michael’s Movers were amazing! From the beginning they were responsive and on top of things. They were priced fair compared to other companies were looked into. Michels Movers knew what questions to ask and made the whole process extremely easy. Angel and his team were very professional, efficient and friendly. They showed up on time and wore masks the entire time. They followed all COVID protocols. They were very careful and wrapped furniture thoroughly. We will definitely use them again next time we need to move. Highly recommend!!
- Jill Bane

I have used them for the third time and by far they have the best customer service. From Crystal to Angel everyone is amazing to deal with!

Excellent service! This was the best moving experience I've ever had. Miguel and his team were polite, efficient and helpful every step of the way!
- Matt Moffitt

Michael’s Movers did such a wonderful job helping us move! It made the day go so smoothly, we. We could not have done it without them. They were fast, friendly, professional, and very respectful of our items.
- Hannah Pepprock

We appreciated the care that Felix, Jose, and Jeferson took with our move. Each box was carefully logged, and each larger item was wrapped with care. They also aren't using blankets anymore to be more COVID safe, so it's very secure bubble wrap. We also appreciated the process to book - Michael's was flexible with moving our dates around, and was always very prompt in responding to any questions we had. Would definitely recommend!
- Rosemary Palmer

Excellent crew and and I highly recommend.

I hired Michael's Movers for a local move and it was the best decision! Ceaser, Jamie and Sullivan were AMAZING. They paid attention to where boxes were labeled and made sure they got to the right rooms in the new house, they took care when moving my items up and down three flights of stairs and were super friendly! The prices were also the most reasonable of the quotes I received and I could not have been happier with the experience! Thank you!
- Charlene Wood

This company did a great job moving me from MA to CT. They were very friendly and careful. The price was a real deal as well, after calling multiple other companies. I would definitely recommend to anyone.
- Jeliene LaRocque

We have to move boxes from Quincy to a warehouse in Chelsea. The drop off was in freight forwarding company. This took a little time as there was a queue in the drop off locations. The guys were very patient and helpful as we waited for the drop off. I was embarrassed that it was taking time but the guys were very helpful. Its the best service without a doubt.
- Anshu Aggarwal

Since it a local business I went with them and avoided the big companies. The sales rep was professional and promised what I wanted, however the movers esp the supervisor was too much rushed, then just somehow threw the things in the closet did not help move part of the kitchen and left. Their behavior was professional though. I felt that they were not briefed properly about the nature of our move. We had to move some of our stuff. I was upset and expressed my concern about the overall service by company.. The company customer spl took my concerns seriously and followed up with me so they can coach their staff. So I think that they will offer better service next time.
