Riley and Sons Moving Reviews

They were amazing. Super nice and respectful of my belongings. Very friendly and patient. I would recommend them to anyone who needs to move. They are also very reasonable.
- Mandee Lickstein

Bill and Miguel were awesome! They made everything as easy and convenient as possible! Super friendly and hard working. Very affordable and definitely will use again when needed!
- Chelsea Bryan

Our move went by so much faster and better than I ever could have imagined. Bill, Miguel, and Joey were careful, fast, and actually made the whole process fun. They were done the entire job in about 5 hours, and without them, it would have taken me 5 hours just to leave the first dwelling. 10/10 recommend doing this.
- Trevor Stacey

The move was perfect, it couldn't have been better. They arrived on time and wasted no time getting to work. Everything was handled as if it were their own. If you need a mover, look no further.
- Brian M.

In past smaller moves, I had always moved myself. But with the first time of having to move an entire household, went with movers. I was so very thoroughly impressed with Riley and Sons! From the start, Michele was very helpful to schedule and provide an estimate. Some other companies didn't really inquire as to what we were moving, so I doubted the accuracy of the estimate. Whereas with Michele, she asked very helpful questions to know what we were moving. Then the actual day of the move, our crew arrived exactly on time. They were very careful with our items as there were absolutely no damages or issues. If there were any questions, they asked rather than just assuming. The movers were very efficient with getting things in and securing them within the truck. Nothing but positive feedback for Riley and Sons! Will certainly use them for any future moves without any hesitation.
- Timothy Dinan

Riley & Sons handled a 3 day move for our company. It involved moving heavy furniture, file cabinets and cubicles. The crews they sent were professional, polite and hard-working. They were responsive to any questions or requests. They seemed appreciative for our business. I would highly recommend R&S to anyone.
- James Black

They did the job of helping to move my stuff well, but there were terms they left out until the day before the move, and were rude. Definitely make sure to get the full contract and rules beforehand, and ask for more even after they tell you. They also overcharged me a bit, so be careful of that as well. Otherwise, they did the job, which was helpful to me since I lived in a walk-up.
- Isis SaysHi

We just used this company for our move... easiest move we’ve ever had (and we’ve had many). SO professional, upfront with all costs, quick, everything went seamlessly and stress-free. So glad we found them!! Can not recommend enough!!
- Jacklyn Brown

We have used this company for 2 moves and will use them for all of our moving needs. They are very organized, informative and easy to deal with. The movers are hard working, polite and professional. I highly recommend Riley & Sons Moving!
- Tim McCarthy

Would highly recommend Riley and Sons. Just got done a move on an extremely hot day. They arrived on time, worked tirelessly all day long and were completely professional and careful with our things.
- Kathy Kennedy

With Riley and Sons moving , you are in good hands! We were extremely pleased with the service provided by the Riley team. Bill Rusden, who was running the show, provided a prompt and accurate estimate (actual cost came out to be less than that). Bill also assigned a very professional team, which was led by another great guy (also named Bill). Moving team was extremely professional and efficient. I am definitely recommending Riley and Sons moving to my friends and family.
- Sumit Kumar

They broke my headboard and ripped my sectional. They wanted to be paid completely for their job ($2200) but they’ll take their time “getting back” to me for my claim. I tipped their movers $120 and bought them breakfast and lunch for 2 days. I respected their movers and I know accidents happen but 1 of them hid the broken headboard piece in the closet.
- David Chen

Such an amazing company we have used them twice for moving and also one for storage. Fair prices, friendly and knowledgeable staff and workers. Very careful with your belongings including a piano.
- Jessica Cordisco

We used Riley and Sons Moving services for over a year. 1) They moved our apartment contents in Philadelphia to their storage facility in PA. 2) They stored this furniture, household good and clothes for a year. 3) They moved all of this to California for us and delivered it in perfect condition. They are trustworthy, friendly, easy to communicate with, fair priced and did an excellent job.
- K Agee

More of an experience than a service. I was blown away with their professionalism, teamwork, and care towards our possessions. No bumps, everything in tact, and they did it with the best attitude we could've asked for. They were on the go, go, go, and quickly got everything done in no time. 10/10 will ask Riley & Sons again!
- sara nozaki

We down sized and used Riley to move us from our home to a co-op. They tried to be careful and did an okay job. I did respect that they carried items that did not fit in the co-op elevator to our fourth floor unit. They also disassembled furniture so that it would be able to be moved to the co-op and reassembled it nicely. I would recommend them.
- Stanton Bubis

I highly recommend Riley and sons moving co for all your moving needs. I recently moved from Philadelphia to the Jersey shore and everything was seemless, from my first call to my last box. The crew helped me box up some TV's and last minute items and put put my bed and table together before they left! My wife and I were truly satisfied!
- William Gledhill

Moving is a very stressful experience and I’ve done plenty of it. I recently used Riley and Sons Moving Co and was left very happy with their services. Their price was affordable, the movers were strong, clean and friendly. Everything about this company was professional and stress free. I highly recommend them.
- Carla Crawford

I have moved over twenty times and Riley and Sons has far out shine any other mover. Thanks to all of the guys who made this happen. You have all been polite. Funny. Caring. Couldn’t be better. Thank you so very much!!!!
- Shawn Spain

I have also moved over a six times in the past 10 years and Riley & Sons was by far the best in the Philadelphia region! The team behind-the-scenes set up TWO separate moves for me, prices were spot-on, the crew both days was incredibly efficient, careful, polite, AND flexible (3-stories, no elevator) with a smile! Love these guys - would use them again in a heartbeat! Thank you!!
- Jeannine Fielding

Workers are good guys. Price was completely out of whack. They moved me 30 seconds away and charged me like I was going cross country. Shame
- Amy C.

Riley & Sons was very prompt in responding to my request for a quote to move from Philly to central NC. Emails were thorough and very clear on what I could do to help them provide an accurate quote, based on weight, distance, etc. The quote I was given was extremely detailed and made me feel they would do the very best to take care of all my belongings for this 560-mile move. Tim even thought of things I had not considered, even though I am a well-seasoned mover! Even when I informed Tim I was going to select another company, he exhibited the right customer-service attitude and action, asking why and if they could have done anything differently to win my business. There was not one thing I could think of upon which he could have improved. PROFESSIONAL in every sense. Five stars for Riley & Sons!

When moving across country there are so many moving parts (no pun intended) that can cause huge delays, and increase costs. Riley & Sons helped us navigate those obstacles. They stayed on budget and over delivered on their work. Would recommend. I contacted Riley & Sons for a move across country, PHL to Sacramento. We looked at a number of companies, some full service movers and some self ship options. Riley & Sons was by far the best value based on their estimates and reviews. They did over deliver. They were extremely accommodating on the estimate visit, specifically dealing with 2 pickup locations. Kevin gave us some great tips on how to accomplish the move, while staying on budget. The movers that showed up the day of were awesome. The city unexpectedly ripped up my street the day before the move. The movers worked with the city's construction crew to get access and navigate the entire mess. This took what was potentially a huge headache away from us. After we were all packed up in the truck, service was still phenomenal. They were in contact with us to make sure we had great unloading help on the other end. They made payment incredibly easy. They followed up with us leading up to and after the move. ALL of our stuff arrived undamaged, complete, and 14 days ahead of schedule!
- Jon S.

Solid movers! Needed 2 guys to move some furniture around the house and haul away a few heavy items. They did the basic things you expect from a mover and did them well. They were on time, nice and polite, and super careful. Covered floors and banisters, removed a door so a couch would fit, asked questions when something wasn't clear. Patiently waited for a few minutes while I took a work phone call. No damage, everything put where it needed to be. We've used Riley and Sons for a couple of moves over the years. They're the real deal and the only company we would have do this for us.
- JJ Z.

Great! Wonderful staff will use again!!! Jeremy Mike Kevin were so nice. Worked great as a team and got it all done in an hour and half. Office great as well!!
- Michele Mimi L.

Fantastic Moving Company. I am involved in the antiques field and own many valuable antique items-so moving was extra stressful. Of course I paid close attention to the moving/packing instructions they give you when you book-(using advised boxes for specialty items etc) but I couldn't have been more *pleased* with the extra care and concern taken by the moving team with our belongings. It felt like a "white glove" moving experience -without the hefty price tag. We have a large house, it was a very long and very hard day (new house has 4 levels!) yet the team was energetic, positive, and beyond professional from start to exhausting finish. From our first email estimate to signing off when everything was unloaded- my husband and I felt good about the company, and the experience as a whole. We wholeheartedly recommend Riley & Sons. A+
- Jennifer G.

Riley & Sons is the best of the best! My family has used their services 4 times now and the experience has been nothing short of perfect. They are punctual and detail oriented. Having to move an entire house into 3 different apartments is not an easy task and they managed to get every item to its respective "new home" with no problems. Their guys are professional, personable, patient, and funny! Moving can be stressful, but they do a great job keeping your mind at ease during the process. We would recommend them to anyone, near and far! Thanks for all your great work
- Sarah K.

I was very apprehensive about movers as we had a bad experience about 10 years ago. This time we used Riley and Sons, they exceeded all expectations. The drivers were very nice, accommodating, careful and so efficient. On the drop off end we had some items going into living space some items going into the garage they put everything where requested, fit things in where I didn't think they would go with care and detail. Great experience, I give them an A+++ MS 7/16/20
- Mary S.

Riley and Sons definitely came through for us! We were in a public storage facility and were notified we needed to remove our stuff in a week as they were closing the doors for good! I called in a panic and 3 movers showed in less than 4 days to help clear out our household goods and take it to their warehouse to store for more than a year, while we had extensive renovations done on our house. The movers were friendly, helpful and so efficient. Storage went without a hitch and the staff could not have been more accommodating and easy to work with. When it came to the move back to our house, (2 of the 3 guys were familiar, great to see they keep their staff) another flawless experience! The movers were fantastic! Will most definitely use them again!
