Octopus Moving Company Reviews

I recommend this moving company. They were professional, hardworking, and nice. Also great rates compared to the others. My one recommendation is to make sure that boxes are placed right side up. A bunch of them were upside down. And 3 glasses and 1 plate broke, possibly as a result.
- Erin McConaughey

Great moving service! The guys were friendly and helpful. Definitely gonna recommend them to my friends. Thank you!
- Sofia Shmeleva

Octapus Movers were superb! We had a last minute need for a moving company on Labor Day weekend & Octapus squeezed us in. Alex and his crew were extremely professional, courteous, communicative, efficient, smart, and careful with all of our belongings. They were punctual and didn't take a break the whole time. All of our belongings were packed and moved with care and arrived at our destination with nothing lost or damaged. You will not be disappointed if you hire Octapus Movers.
- Ann SheaConkle

If i could leave zero stars, I would. In summary: we paid $1725 to have movers that showed up late, berated us about the quality/quantity of our furniture, talked down to us, and refused to take certain items (somewhat arbitrarily?) which they then presented as a favor to us. Also, there was a 3% credit card processing fee no one informed us about until 11PM after an exhausting day, when we were expected to sign a contract and pay up. Long story: we set up a moving date 2-3 weeks prior to move our small two bedroom apartment into another small 3 bedroom apartment, 5 miles down the road. We received several texts reminding us we were moving. We read all of the fine print on the deposit (which we paid online). 3 hours before we were supposed to move, Octopus asked us for a photo of our belongings-- presumably, to send a correctly sized truck. We sent it. 40 minutes before the movers arrived, they sent a reply. They would not be able to take open boxes or bags-- would not even carry them downstairs for us to load into our car-- and they didn't want to take any glassware (fish tanks, in our case). We had informed them up front about the need to move a large tank-- it was part of why we hired movers at all. When they actually got there, they did agree to take the large tank (which we needed! for our pet snake to live in!) but refused to take the two smaller fish tanks. Why? We just don't know. We had to figure those out for ourselves. While I can understand, in hindsight, why they don't want to be responsible for open boxes/bags/fragile items-- they had every opportunity to communicate that requirement for closed boxes, and didn't. They had every opportunity to tell us that we were only allowed one (?) fragile item. They didn't. And, after we frantically closed as many boxes as possible... the moving team was an hour late. The movers themselves were... fine. They were careful with our stuff, didn't break anything, and didn't damage anything. They did, however, add a third helper at the very end of the day, which bumped our bill up-- but it was presented as though we had no choice in the matter. They also definitely had opinions about our belongings, and how we had too much stuff, and that some of our furniture was rickety and that we should just trash it, and what furniture we should put in what room (when we were unloading), and also really wanted to use an empty room in the new place to stack all the boxes. When I told them no, we had my two scared cats in that room, they were pretty insistent. I had to really stand my ground to get them to put the boxes in the kitchen/living room, and not the room with two (already nervous) cats. Come the end of the day, we were informed that they wanted us to pay cash. As this was supposed to be a $1500 job, we had planned to pay by credit. We were not informed until all of our things had been moved, at the end of an exhausting day (5 car trips of those open-top boxes we had to carry ourselves!) that there would be a 3% credit card processing charge. Oh, and that final bill? Was $150 over the maximum ($1500) we had been quoted. At least they offered to take some old furniture off our hands for the low price of $150 (though, I can't really complain, I desperately wanted to be rid of it). So. That's the long and short of it. I don't recommend this company at all-- you're honestly better off carrying your own stuff, with the rates they charge and the service they provide.
- Meaghan Ingram

Amazing service! I was moving from Massachusetts to New Jersey and they gave me an affordable flat rate. They were quick and very efficient; highly recommend!! I was so relieved when I saw that they really do double wrap the furniture: one layer of cloth and a 2nd layer of plastic.
- Dorothy C

I almost forgot to drop a review here...after 2 years lol. Last 2017, we hired this company to move from Brookline to Chelmsford, they were prompt, fast and careful with all our stuffs. And the price they charged us was not as expensive as the other moving companies. Highly recommend!!!
- Jay Ramirez

Definitely not a professional company does not keep the word I believe the rescheduled for times just to drop off contracts and they didn't even Come by to as they said they had a flat tire so while I was explaining to them why can't use them the owner hung up on me And at the end of the day hes the owner who should know better.
- Sam D

We used Octopus Moving company for our apartment move, and they were outstanding! Sergey and his team showed up on time and packed, moved all our items with such care. No hidden fees, fast and affordable company. Certainly RECOMMEND!
- Love Cheese

This was definitely my best moving experience! Guys are very professional and efficient! They took no breaks and did the whole move faster than I expected. I would highly recommend them to anyone who is moving around Boston area!
- Yegor Rebel

These are two very professional and Efficient workers. I hired them for 2 hrs and they worked continuously and hard for 51 min and completed the job significantly faster. I’d recommend these guys to anyone moving and if I ever need to move again I’ll certainly higher them again!
- Alina Khayrullina

I used their services back in September, my move was unexpected, so I kind of needed everything very quick. They did a great job though, fast and flawless, price was worth it.
- Maryna Nesterenko

In and out in 2 hours--WOOHOO!
- CR Office

- Lisa Indelicato

Couldn't recommend this service more. Good rates and even better quality of service. Very thoughtful and efficient about loading trucking, unpacking truck, etc.
- Nick Szurgyi

We hired the Octopus Moving company for our local move in Nov. 2019. The guys on the team, led by Serge, worked swiftly, carefully, and efficiently for long hours, on 2 consecutive days. They wrapped all of our furniture in blankets and cellophane and even packed a few boxes for us which we hadn't finished. Extremely helpful and friendly guys!! No dings or scratches on our walls or furniture! Best move I've ever gone through, hands down.
- Angela C Darling, DC

I used Octopus moving and storage for my move on the 28th of March. They are incredible. They were so professional from follow up emails prior to move date, 30 min heads up to arrival call and making sure I didn’t do a thing as they loaded up my 2 bedroom apartment. You guys are a rare gem! Thank you so much to the two amazing men that assisted me.
- Shana Kasparian

Outstanding service ! Could not have been happier with my recent move. Sergey and his team did everything just perfect! They worked incredibly hard and fast and were more efficient than any other movers I’ve worked with! Showed up in time with things we didn’t even know we needed. We only had one bedroom to move but we were moving into the place with two flings of stairs which were pretty ting and there were no scratches on the furniture or walls after our moving ! I don’t know how they did it, but the did ! Also, it was pouring rain and they did not even complain once just said that it was an adventure ! I would wholeheartedly recommend them ! Guys you are awesome!
- Kristina Hryvniak

I moved from one state to another and I had to find a good mover to help me without really having any idea how to choose a mover in this part of the country. I read lots of reviews and decided to take a chance with Octopus and I'm glad I did. They came, they worked, they were friendly and efficient and they came in right on budget. I thought they did a really good job. I tend to move a lot, so I'm sure that next year when I (probably) move again, they'll be the first ones I call.
- mark stuart

Took the stress out of moving. Incredible company that was super responsive and flexible - willing to work with me with the most competitive rate. Movers arrived early and were professional and attentive to the most minute of details. They face timed me at the end of the job to ensure that the appropriate items were moved. Would highly recommend!
- Nino Mihatov

Octopus movers are excellent! I had to move a delicate yet heavy antique furniture set up to a third floor bedroom. The set also includes a 5x3 foot dresser mirror. They took care to wrap everything up and made getting them up a narrow staircase seem easy. All the pieces were in perfect shape and they helped to put the drawers back in as well. They moved all of the pieces in record time while still being careful. The two movers were also very kind and understanding of my concerns about handling the furniture set. And they are super affordable. I can't recommend them enough!
- Justine Gambale

Had an exceptional experience moving with Octopus this morning from NJ to Boston. Alex was super responsive when I reached out and provided me with the best quote. The quote along with Octopus' reviews convinced me to go forward with them. Sergei and Ivan were our movers and they were very efficient and courteous the entire time. They even offered to help with an emergency pickup from Ikea that was needed after the move. I'd definitely recommend Octopus to anyone looking to move to/from Boston.
- Saswat Panda

WOW!! If we could give more than 5 stars we would! This is the second time we have used Octopus Movers and we could not have been happier! Not only was the whole team responsive and professional, but they were so gracious to us as this was a move into our first home. They were incredibly responsive over email/ thumbtack and were very punctual. I had underestimated how much stuff we actually had and when moving day came around they were so flexible and accommodating. They brought, blankets, tape etc. and made sure all of our things were well taken care of. We would HIGHLY recommend this company to anyone moving:)
- Laura Clark

Daniel and David did a nice job with my packing and moving job. It was a long day but they did it all with a smile and great attitude, even when we ran into trouble fitting my couch through the door. They were very professional and polite. The booking process was also very easy, especially considering that I booked last minute at the end of August. I’m overall quite impressed by Octopus and would use them again! Thank you!
- Richard Diesso

The best moving company ever. Excellent, honest and kind. They arrived in time. They did onsite estimate, helped plan the entire move and accommodated our weekend scheduled. The crew was very efficient and polite. Definitely recommend them.
- Мария Мария

I cannot praise this company enough.They were punctual, hardworking, strong, polite, efficient, and thoroughly professional. The movers were also very congenial and good-spirited. They made the stressful and onerous process of moving go very smoothly, and all for a very reasonable price. I recommend them to anyone.
- James Ortega

These guys were really nice and SO fast. Everything was taken care of accordingly and there was no damage. The price was very fair and overall it was a great experience. It's not a flashy business but the two movers I had, Ivan and Rolando, were great to talk to and they were kind and worked quickly and efficiently.
