Old City Movers Reviews

Fair rates and the guys who moved my things worked fast and efficiently, had great personalities, and took a lot of care handling my belongings. I had a little trouble getting a hold of someone during office hours, but they are more responsive via email. I wouldn't hestitate to use them for another move in the future!!
- Meco Sparks

These guys were great! Very professional, friendly, and efficient. They handled our furniture carefully and finished in good time. Would definitely use them again.
- Rachel Tighe

Quick and simple moving service with friendly workers! Highly recommended
- Pluto Era

100% would recommend booking with Old City Movers. I really never write reviews but these guys did such an outstanding job I think it's only fair for me to do my part in uplifting their business. This was my first time hiring a moving service and it was 100% worth it. It would've been impossible without professionals. Reason to hire Old City Movers: 1. They are extremely responsive to emails and communicate well overall. Throughout the multiple times communicating with them over the past couple of months, they always emailed me back within a couple of hours and certainly within the same business day, and they always had the answers to my questions. The day before the move, they called to confirm the move as promised and answered questions I had. In the morning, they called to tell me they were about 30 minutes away and again when they arrived. 2. They know what they're doing and what it takes to move into or out of a place in Philly (think setting up parking permits, being intimately aware of the streets and the best places to park, maneuvering narrow stairways.) 3. They are priced extremely reasonably and deliver on their quote. I was moving to Philly from an hour away but they only charged me the hour of travel and didn't rack up more charges for distance. Because my new apartment is split between the 3rd and 4th floor, I was charged the 4th floor walk-up price, which was only $10/hr more than the usual rate of $135/hr. They now offer a 5% discount if you pay in cash. They also did not go above the quote estimated (despite the fact that I underestimated how much stuff I would have when I requested the quote). Which leads me to my next point 4. They work HARD. It must have been 95+ degrees out yesterday. They arrived on time, and began to hustle. Don't get me wrong, these guys are in incredibly good shape, but this stuff is INTENSIVE labor, carrying heavy box after box and large pieces of furniture up and down several flights of stairs. They took their time when they needed to in order to be safe and take care of my things, but they did a job that I would've had to do with 10 friends and taken twice as long (and probably would've damaged things and not been able to get my couch in my apartment). Their quick work despite extreme exhaustion saved me a lot of money. 5. They are efficient and know how to take care of your things. I guess this should go without being said if you're hiring a mover, but I can attest that it is true for Old City Movers. They also helped us out when some of our boxes fell apart. Tips for moving: 1. Tape up your boxes like crazy (wrap all around the box not just the top). 2. Disassemble everything before they get there and save yourself lots of $$$ 3. Put as much into boxes as possible 4. Have cold water and maybe Gatorade/powerade for the movers. Having substantial snacks is also a good idea and something I should've had more of (they are after all exerting a lot of energy over several hours). 5. Tip your movers. Don't be a jerk.

I used this moving company back in Last February for my move.Amazing company to move for you, they were super polite and worked extremely hard. They did everything for us with care and dedication! I would recommend Old City Movers to anyone, and we are using them AGAIN to move us out of the city in a few weeks! Thank you OCM!
- Eddie T

Very efficient and professional. Highly recommend using this company for moving.
- Elizabeth O'Connor

These guys are great! Most professional and efficient moving company I have ever worked with!
- Jim O'Connor

I wouldn't use them again. When I moved back in September, they purposely took their time and ran up the clock for a quick move. I do not suggest them.
- Kelley DeLara

We moved in December 2018 and had a fantastic experience with Old City Movers. We had the morning time slot. They were on time and so friendly. These guys came with their game faces on, never stopping. We were so impressed with their care for each item, wrapping furniture heavily in moving blankets and helping us reconfigure some boxes that weren't well organized. Their pricing is below the area average, and the estimate was in point. I would highly recommend them for their speed, friendliness, and professionalism.
- Samantha McKenna

Would avoid scheduling with this company. Absolutely unprofessional. Spent multiple conversations detailing out inventory and logistics for a move only to have them give up our spot without notice or availability for an alternate day. They will blame it specifics that they knew from the very first conversation. Don't waste your time.
- Drew Donchez

Great experience from start until end. Efficient work with fair prices. Showed up on time and very friendly. The team of Robby, Donnie, and Steve is highly recommended. All very experienced at their job. Definitely recommended.
- bucky A

Old City Movers moved us from Old City to West Philadelphia this past Friday. Great service, showed up early, very polite crew of 3 young men who did a fantastic job. They made it a painless move. I would highly recommend OCM.
- Bob Spina

My husband and I used Old City movers last weekend and they were great! They arrived on time (in fact, it was a few minutes early!) and moved everything from our 2 bedroom apartment to a 4 floor row home about 2 miles away in just under 4 hours. They were nice, friendly, and considerate of all of our belongings and even helped carry some of our personal things that we were transporting in our car. They were very considerate, didn't drop boxes on the floor of the new house or scuff any walls. I would definitely recommend them to anyone in need of a moving company!
- Samantha Schatz Hellinger

Very thankful for all that Old City Movers did to help! Submitted a quote form on their website. Heard back quickly and they were responsive throughout the planning stage. Great, reassuring phone call from them to confirm on the day before. Josh, Bear, and Travis showed up ready to help and they really showed up - they were all amazing, polite, friendly, and respectful of each other, all of us, and all our stuff. They worked so hard. Hiring them for any future moves is an absolute no-brainer thanks to a truly great experience. All the positive reviews I read beforehand were true. Their prices are fair and competitive (I compared to 4 other Philly/local movers).
- Natalie

I chose to use Old City Movers based on their great reviews and fair prices, and their service did not disappoint! They arrived on time and moved me across the bridge from Camden to Philly in just three hours, which was less than the original estimate. The crew was friendly and polite and were easy to communicate with throughout the process. I would highly recommend their services to friends and family in the future. It was worth every penny!
- Emma Faulkner

I recently had a phenomenal experience moving from the city to the suburbs with Old City Movers. The men were polite and had positive attitudes - never complained or slowed down - demonstrating professionalism. They treated my furniture and boxes with great care and were strategic with maneuvering large pieces of furniture through tight corners without any damage to my home or furniture. I feel confident recommending Old City Movers and will absolutely be a returning customer for my next move.
- Hillary Holmes

Awesome moving experience with Old City Movers!! Very smooth and highly reliable. Old City Movers are the best in Philly...highly recommend.
- Noah Robkin

They did a great job on short notice. Excellent personal.
- Daryl Lavong

Wish we could rate them higher! Most flawless and stress free experience from start to finish. The guys were super efficient and were willing to work with us no matter what we threw their way. Highly recommend!!
- sarah sadofsky

Old City Movers did an outstanding job. They were the only company to get back to us right away. They moved our entire house and business from Philadelphia to western PA. They were on time, super friendly and energetic. They worked hard the whole time and never seemed to slow down. They moved us over 300 miles away and everything went perfectly smooth. Nothing but praise for Old City Movers.
- Wm Hughes

I had old city movers move me 10 years ago, and had such a positive experience that I hired them again a month ago for an unexpected within-building move between apartments. Three movers showed up exactly when they said they would - Matt, Reno and Travis. Boy are these guys efficient and solution oriented. I had an issue with a bed and a narrow staircase that they quickly resolved by hoisting it over a balcony. They treated my stuff as if it were their own, and were super friendly as well. I will stick with Old city for all my moves in the future, and would wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone who has a love coming up.
- yasamin mir-shekari

Had the best experience with Old City Movers! They showed up on time, worked very efficiently, were very friendly and professional! Very reasonably priced! I highly recommend them for anyone needing movers!
- Lauren Concodora

Old City Movers did an excellent job! They arrived during the timeframe given, were super friendly, and very efficient and careful. Truly wonderful service. Would recommend them to anyone moving.
- Megan Super

We used OCM's full service packing and moving this year to move our stuff to the storage for home repairs and moving them back after repair. They were professional, punctual and easy to work with. However, they either forgot or did not put on the shipping bolts on our washer and unfortunately damaged our new washer (purchased in 2015) completely. When we told them about it and asked if their insurance would cover the damage, they simply did not engage us. It is frustrating, since we hired a insured and bonded mover so as to cover any damages during the move and this was a pretty substantial damage and one would hope they would cover some of the costs to either repair it or part of the replacement costs. I would neither recommend nor use them again.
- Debjani Bhattacharyya

Great company!! Made a stressful day STRESSLESS as I couldn’t have asked for better people to move my items. Before the move, the company was quick and responsive to my emails and answered all of the questions I had. Mike V, Jonathan, and Danny were super professional, kind, and energetic. The apartment I was moving from didn’t allow movers inside, so I had to move everything to the lobby where they were patient and quick to put the items in the truck. Upon arriving to my apartment, everything was handled with great care and considering there were 3 flights of stairs, these guys made it so easy. The whole move only took 2 hours and their pricing was upfront and CHEAP compared to other companies in the area. Highly recommend thanks again guys!!
- Olivia Cipollini

We were so impressed by the communication, professionalism, and care throughout the whole experience using Old City Movers. Before the move, Jeremy was so helpful with providing information via an emailed list on all of the small details to think of (such as securing parking permits and where to do that, prepping furniture, etc.). The day of the move, Ethan, Will, and Bill were absolutely AWESOME! From the start, it was clear that they were experienced and knowledgeable about planning for the day. They treated all of our furniture and belongings with respect and care and everything made it to the new location without a scratch. It was impressive to watch them communicate at the new location to maneuver larger furniture up our 2 narrow staircases. In addition, the guys had wonderful senses of humor and made a stressful day more relaxing and fun. We even shared pizza together at lunchtime and the guys told us about local restaurants they liked and info about the city. We could not have asked for a better moving experience and will certainly use Old City Movers in the future. Highly recommend to anyone looking for an organized and positive moving experience for a very fair price!
- Carolyn Witt

I could not be happier with Old City Movers, who helped me with a move last week. The office gave me a detailed, accurate estimate a few weeks before my move and recommended the right size storage unit for some of my furniture. The movers arrived promptly the morning of the move and were extremely efficient, courteous, and professional. They took all of the necessary coronavirus precautions and were very careful with and respectful of my furniture and boxes. We had a last-minute, unanticipated snafu with the destination, and they were very understanding about the change of plans. Their rates are extremely reasonable and competitive, and I will absolutely work with them again on my next move!
- David Buchanan

I just moved apartments within the city last weekend and my experience with Old City Movers (Specifically Johnny, Reno, and Scotty) was awesome. The quote they initially gave me was accurate and I ended up paying exactly what they quoted me. Altogether, the move took about 2.75 hours and was by far the smoothest move I've ever made with movers. I was the second scheduled move of the day and was nervous when I got a call on the day of my move that due to some circumstances with the first move, my initially scheduled movers could no longer move me. However, Johnny called me and was able to fit me in within a few hours and move me on my originally scheduled day. I give them 5 stars, even with the initial hold up because they were that good. Overall, communication was fantastic and the movers were super great guys who were nothing but professional.
- Dylane Wineland

Would actually prefer to give zero stars but Google does not give that option. Picked this mover because of the good reviews but now I am wondering if they are legit or just friends. My experience was quite different. They arrived on time and were polite and courteous. This was considered a small move, not many pieces of furniture and very short distance. I questioned the movers as they did not "wrap" the pieces before moving them. They stated that they would wrap them before putting them in the truck. This is the third move with these pieces and were in perfect condition BEFORE this move. As the items were still being moved in, I was given a document to sign and pay. I asked for the bed to be centered in bedroom but apparently the movers were in a rush to get out of there. Once I saw the bed was not centered, went out the door to grab them to come back and they were almost jogging to the truck. Once back in apartment and setting up and cleaning, now I realized why they left so fast before I had a chance to look at anything. Three items damaged. See attached photos: one is bottom of dresser where they dragged it and a piece of the laminate peeled away. Small and not that noticeable. The other two, sorry guys, inexcusable. The top of the TV table was scratched and they must have dropped the armrest piece of the leather couch because it was destroyed. I emailed Jeremy and he has gone radio silent. He made no attempt to contact me and try to make this right. Sorry guys but beware!!!! If you like your furniture, use a different mover. Price was low but at what cost, I have two pieces of furniture ruined.
- Shari Summers

This was my first experience using movers and I can without a doubt say it was money well spent. I had looked at a few movers but I found Old City Movers to be one of the more reasonably priced ones. They had great communication. I was kept informed of when the movers should arrive and any delays that occurred. Despite being the second move of the day Johnny, Reno, and Danny arrived and were extremely pleasant and in high spirits. They wore proper PPE and moved me much quicker than I even anticipated. They were incredibly careful with my items and they actively encouraged me to give them more things to move. I came in below the price I was quoted at which was great. I will 100% percent be using Old City Movers for whenever I move next primarily because of my great experience with Johnny, Reno, and Danny. Keep the great work guys!
