PhilaGorilla Movers Reviews

They showed up on time. Did a great job with unloading my storage units. They got to the destination quickly, and unpacked everything efficiently, with speed. Would certainly recommend this company.
- Stephen Feeley

We had such a great moving experience with these guys! Despite having more stuff to move than we originally estimated, they finished the job in 30 minutes UNDER the estimated completion time. They were friendly and professional and took good care of our fragile items. Would definitely hire again and will be recommending to all my Philly friends.
- Katherine Senter

They were easy to work with, pleasant, and gave us no hassle about all of the stairs they had to do. I would absolutely hire them again.
- Liz Z.

Great moving company. I got myself into a bit of jam where I was switching apartments on short notice and was having a hard time finding movers with openings. Philagorilla was able to squeeze me in and the group of guys that came over did an excellent job.
- John Penwell

A gorilla movers truck drove down our tiny street at Way more than twice the speed limit. Our street has both a 20 mph sign and a NO through trucks sign due to small size. The truck ripped up tree branches as well. I think the driver is a dangerous Unprofessional individual.
- Andrew Jevremovic

Professional, efficient, and a pleasure to work with. Take COVID precautions seriously. They also squeezed us in last minute saving us from a huge move on our own! Would definitely recommend!
- Megan Hiser

Great group of people!
- Arthur Storms

Appointment and still have to wait.
- Eduardo Cartagena

I’m a dog walker , new to this company and was told to use the freight elevator at 2601 Pennsylvania ave. The clients didn’t tell me that the freight was reserved and after I dropped off my Clients dogs, one of the movers was very rude to me and told me “not to use his freight elevator” . When I told him I’m not coming back for the day, I’m just the dog walker he got even more rude “just don’t use it today”. I tried to calmly explain my position as I understand his. We are all trying to do our jobs here. Not necessary to be angry and it’s not even hot out today.
- jessica crane

Outstanding company! We will use them for all our future moves. Very clean, courteous and professional.
- John Romeo

The movers at Phila Gorilla Movers are disrespectful and they have a bad attitude. They did not have respect for property and they were extremely immature. Do not use these movers.
- milton s.

PhilaGorilla movers did a great job with our move from Philly to Newark, DE. They showed up on time, were quick with packing the truck and beat us to our new place (we had to pick up keys). Everything went so smoothly and the guys were very polite. I highly recommend.
- Amber H.

This morning PhilaGorilla moved my daughter's furniture out of her apartment and into a storage unit. All three men were polite, professional and friendly. They called to let us know they were running a few minutes late, then they called when they arrived. They were so fast and efficient and took less time than originally quoted. They had all the supplies necessary for protecting the floors and wrapped the furniture. They were a pleasure to deal with. Made it easy to pay with credit card and gave the option of putting a tip on the credit card. We will definitely use them for the next move.
- Cathy W.

Christian and his team were great. They were punctual and efficient. They moved both my storage unit and condo to a new home in the same day. Very happy with their service and communication!
- Annie C.

Overall great experience! I called last minute and needed movers next day and they delivered. Price quoted was what I ended up paying, no hidden fees or weird extras. They called in advance to let me know when they would be arriving and both arrived on bikes. I had Jordan and Kwame (not sure if I spelled that correctly?) to unload a 15 foot truck and they did it all so quickly and efficiently, nothing damaged. Well worth the price to not have to haul my belongings up the stairs many, many times myself. They were even kind enough to offer recommendations in my neighborhood, as I am new to the area. Definitely recommend for individuals in the area needing stuff moved!
- Kelsey K.

This was the BEST decision I've made lately. They came early, ended up under the quote, and everything went incredibly smoothly - they even doubled back after they were done because they found a tiny pin that had fallen out of my exercise bike in transit. For the first time I can say I actually enjoyed moving! Highly recommend.
- heidi b.

Never thought I'd say this about moving, but what a GREAT experience. We found PhilaGorilla on Yelp looking for the best reviewed movers, and after calling around to a few other places, these guys were the only ones who really seemed to listen to our questions and concerns about moving our third floor tiny walk-up apartment into our new house. We had PhilaGorilla both pack and move us. The packing services were excellent - far beyond our expectations. Everything was packed quickly and with great care in sturdy new cardboard boxes. The next day was the move - and it went off without a hitch. I don't know how these guys got all of our big furniture around our building's tiny bends and narrow stairs, but they made it look easy. Plus, not a scratch on anything. I would 100% recommend PhilaGorilla movers - especially getting both the packing and moving services. If you want your stuff to make the trip intact, don't do it yourself. Use these guys.
- Sean M.

We hired PhilaGorilla Movers recently for a commercial move and we were so glad we did! Christian and his team went above and beyond for our company. From answering all of my questions via email extremely quickly to his team working hard and tirelessly all day and into the evening. All of the furniture that was disassembled and then reassembled by the team was done so carefully and with no damage. I would definitely use these guys again for a commercial or residential move, and will be recommending them to anyone that is looking for movers.
- Kelsey B.

100% would recommend Phillagorilla. They helped us every step of the way, as we moved from out of state to Philadelphia. Specifically, Phillagorilla helped us with our parking permit and unloading our moving truck. The movers were professional, fast, and great people to interact with. Also very reasonably priced. Highly recommended!
- Jeremy Y.

These guys were nice and efficient. However, they charged me $170 for the 7 or so miles it took them to get to my place! That was not something I anticipated. I was moving out of a studio apartment and they brought a HUGE truck with them, much bigger than necessary. They also charge for every stair case they have to traverse...which is why the hourly fee was not the $150/hour advertised on their website. In the end, I felt like they kept adding fees (like the $10 for gas...was that not part of the $170 you charged me for getting to my place?) at the end, and I was so exhausted from the move that I wasn't alert enough to protest. All in all, I paid over $600 to move out of a studio apartment and go FIVE BLOCKS west into another place. That, to me, is way (way) too much. I'm sorry, but I would not use this company again. They bled me dry and I could have saved hundreds had I just used UHaul.
- Courtney B.

I wouldn't recommend this company. I had a move scheduled for 3 pm on my move out day. I sat around waiting for them, they said they were running a little behind. Two hours go by and I still hear nothing. I try calling the numbers who reached out to me and no one answers. I continued to wait. I was convinced they weren't going to come so I frantically had to start calling other moving companies because I needed to be out that day. I finally get someone to call me back and they did not arrive to my place until after 7 pm. When the movers got there after being 4 hours late they then tried to charge me extra. I was irritated at this point after sitting around waiting for hours and put up a fight about the extra charge. I told them I would call the manager about it. They wound up calling him and he gave me a discount. The workers were rude and gave me such an attitude about it as if it was my fault for their company's poor planning. It was there 4th move of the day and were clearly exhausted. They were not the crew that was supposed to do my move. They were sloppy and damaged my furniture. As well as the wall in my old apartment. I didn't get done my move until 9 pm. There are a million other movers in the city. Choose someone else if you want a smooth moving process. Moving is stressful enough without having to worry about movers you booked in advanced showing up.
- Heather D.

I don't know how else I can express my gratitude for this company. I had an interesting and complicated job that I needed to accomplish and they provided A+ customer service from the initial message to the end. The owner personally responded to all of my Yelp messages in an expedient manner, the crew provided updates to me as they were en route, and even throughout the moving process they were transparent, courteous, and very friendly. I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking to hire a moving company. Thanks again for being not only an awesome company, but incredible human beings!
- Chris W.

They let me know they were running a few minutes late, and then worked steadily through a long day (eleven hours total). The move-in had is challenges (a small street with no parking, three stories, tight corners), but they didn't complain and didn't leave until they had placed everything where I wanted. All this whole masked and gloved and observing social distancing.
- Theresa T.

Just used PhilaGorilla for a complicated move involving hoisting furniture through a window. They were professional, reliable, organized, skilled and a pleasure to do business with. Highly recommend.
- Jay F.

We absolutely love this company. We have used these guys for two moves now and cannot say enough good things. They're incredibly professional and do not waste anytime. The two times we have used them they always show up right on time and get everything moved incredibly efficiently. Their price is very reasonable and they do not idle or stall for extra time. They have a great working attitude and get the job done incredibly well. If we ever move again and are within their radius we would happily used their services. I would recommend these folks to anyone who is moving. I know a lot of people have unfortunate horror stories from other moving companies which include problems such as the movers not being on time or efficient. These guys are the exact opposite and they will give you incredible peace of mind.
- Nihaal K.

PhilaGorilla movers were great. I was in a pinch as the movers I had originally been working with just stopped responded to me and when I reached out Christian was amazing! Got back to me and my questions right away. The quote and every correspond was so professional and helpful. The movers themselves (Stephen, Kelly and JC) were great! So nice and polite and helpful! I lived in a old three story walk up in South Philly with no central air and while it was a super hot day, they never complained once! I wanted to complain about the heat and I wasn't doing the heavy lifting! All in all it was an amazing experience from start to finish! My boyfriend is using them next week because they did such a great job on my place! Thank you all for such a great moving experience!!!
- Emma W.

I would have given more than 5 stars if it were possible. Nelson, Steven and Kelly did a fantastic job with my move. Everything went very smoothly as planned starting from quote and scheduling with their office (Christian) all the way to the move, billing and payment. They were very deligent and gentle with all the furniture but at the same time, fast and efficient. I have already recommended them to two of my buddies. If you're reading this don't waste your time looking elsewhere , I've had my fair share of moves and haven't had a better experience than this before.
- Amir R.

PhilaGorillas helped me w/a move from S Philly to Fishtown in the middle of COVID and did a great job. It was easy to book, they were on time, wore masks and ensured a safe environment, and turned a tough move into something not super burdensome. I highly recommend Stephen and his team.
- Joe S.

EDIT: The business owner has again made false claims without having seen the actual move or the damage caused by his crew, to get out of dealing with dealing with these issues. Christian was NOT there when his crew asked me to borrow tools, NOT there when they scraped the walls with our furniture, and NOT there when they cracked the banister. Lowered my rating to one star. Original review: PhilaGorilla was fine. They showed up on time and in masks, but the positives stop there. The movers showed up unprepared, without any tools (screwdriver and allen wrench) for disassembling furniture. Thankfully I own tools that i was able to lend to the movers so that they could do their jobs. On top of that, their crew damaged the stairwell banister in multiple places, for which I am now being charged several hundred dollars. Christian was completely unhelpful and falsely claimed that the damage was pre-existing, which is hard to believe considering the size of the cracks and scratches (see photos). Several pieces of furniture had paint on them from where they scraped the wall, and there were many instances where they were slamming boxes down, without really paying attention to whether the contents were labeled as fragile or not. I will not be using them again, and I would recommend others to steer clear also.
- Rakesh J.

This is our second time using PhilaGorilla Movers and the second time was just as great as the first. Brian, rob and Ryan were AMAZING!!!!!! honestly they showed up exactly on time AND Hustled the hell out of the move. They even were easy to work with and super fun too. I give them mega props for the energy they showed even when we were their second job of the day. Never complained once about the job or the damn heavy furniture we had! From booking to last piece of furniture moved they were awesome. I HIGHLY recommend this company!!!!
