Seattle Small Moves Reviews

I hired Seattle Small Moves to help my daughter move from Seattle to Bellingham. The move started in Seattle with one stop in Edmonds for a few more pieces of furniture and ended at her new apartment. The movers showed up on time and everything was delivered as promised. Beforehand, Kurt and his team provided a quick, clear bid that was affordable and he answered all my questions. Everything was firmed up the day before, and the day of, both Ian and his crew were helpful and friendly. I will definitely hire this company again. Thank you, Seattle Small Moves.

Best decision ever! We moved apartments a little less than a mile apart. The guys were friendly and super efficient - they took one look at our place and started hauling stuff to the truck. They moved all our furniture and all the boxes we had packed within the estimated two-hour window, and took great care with everything. Would recommend!
- Abby S.

Extremely disappointed. I booked them for a 9am move on a Friday morning. Time was confirmed by them. I got a call at 8:59 on move day telling me their truck was broken and in the shop. Estimated time they would be available? 1-2pm. I was promised a call back with an update, which never came. I called at 130pm and was told it would probably be another hour. 2 hours after that, they still had not showed. I booked my move time specifically when I knew both my old place and my new place would not be busy and it would be easy to back the truck up and load/unload. I also picked a time when I knew there would not be traffic, which is not the case on Friday night. They are currently SIX AND A HALF hours late, and still not answering the phone and have not arrive. Repeated phone calls and requests to speak to the supervisor have gone ignored. I understand that things happen, but how they have handles this issue is the worst customer service I have experienced. They aren't cheap movers and I expected much more for this price. Unprofessional.
- Sarah K.

I booked Seattle Small Moves 2 months before my move date of May 20th. We were set for 9am. 9am approaches and I receive no call. I call and am told a driver didn't show up and they will be 45 minutes late. It was frustrating that I had to initiate multiple phone calls to know when they were arriving. They arrived at 11:30, which is 2 and a half hours late. I wish I was able to show up 2 and a half hours late to my workplace. However, the 2 guys I had worked very hard and I was grateful they could get my heavy, large sleeper sofa into our old Seattle house. It was also strange to have to call and give payment information. The driver should have a chip reader, especially if you say you accept card. If you say cash only, I would have had cash. I wouldn't recommend Seattle Small Moves and I won't use them again.
- Jessie O.

Evan and his partner were wonderful to work with! Super nice guys, and very efficient. They were also flexible and helpful in figuring out the best place to park the truck when they moved my stuff from one tricky Seattle neighborhood to another. Would definitely use their services again!
- Valerie W.

These guys were AMAZING. I used them 4 months ago when I was in a rush to move out of my apartment. They were responsive, on time, extremely speedy and the crew was polite, cheerful, and incredibly helpful. I hired them again last week when I finally found a permanent residence. Again, they were amazing. The crew even remembered me & my family, and they were so sweet. The day before the move, I requested an additional stop. Not only were they accommodating, but still managed to complete the entire move under the estimated time they sent me. I'll continue to be a loyal customer to Seattle Small Moves - and I HIGHLY recommend them to anyone who needs to hire movers.
- Emily P.

Seattle Small Moves is an incredible company. They are very fast, efficient and provide very good quotes that they stand by. There are zero hidden fees. They made the move for deployment a lot less stressful. They have amazing customer service and I will definitely be using Seattle Small Moves again when I come back from my deployment. They provided the best moving experience I have ever had.
- Johnny P.

I scheduled a move three-days in advance and it was easy to do online, I got an email confirmation from an actual person (not a robot) with-in 30 minutes. My move was a 1-bedroom apartment to another 1-bedroom apartment 5 miles away. The movers were on-time and ready to go, they called 30 minutes before they arrived to give me a heads up. They were very quick and diligent and disassembled my table and reassembled it, the whole move took 90 minutes total, super fast!

I found seattle small moves when I saw their moving truck passed By Elliott Bay on Wednesday. To request for the moving services, you just need to fill out some information on their website and you will receive the confirmation email and text. The process is easy and you pay on the moving day. They accept both cash and credit card. On the moving day, Evan, Renee and Ryan are on time, friendly, professional and very efficient. We finished moving all the stuff (2 bedroom townhouse) in 2 hours. I am glad that the move is over. Now, it's time to unpack the stuff. I would choose their services again if I need to move again in the future. Thank you for all of your help. 🙂
- Sharon L.

These guys saved my life! They did dumping and moving my stuff to POD container. I was really worried because I only have a 4 hour window to get everything done. Fyi i have a 3 bed 3.5 bath townhouse with 3 flights of stairs. 1. They were available on short notice. 2. Lightning bolt fast! Wont stop working the whole time and will keep on asking. Anything else???!!! Everything finished within less than 2 hours only! 3. Courteous, funny, three big guys that made me feel like a midget. 4. They disassembled my 2 bed frames, moved and emptied every single thing in my house. 5. Ian, who responded by email was also very accomodating. 6. On time! Super satisfied!

Do NOT use this company. He shows the BBB logo on his website, and he is not accredited. He continues to show the logo on his website. I used this moving service for a move from Seattle to Washington D.C in August. Things started to go downhill when, despite having a guaranteed delivery date, my things arrived 4 days late. When the truck arrived, the men who were contracted by Mr. Marley came to my door and apologized for the condition of my belongings. They were not the ones who loaded my things in Seattle, just contracted to unload in D.C. The movers were kind enough to take dozens of photos showing how poorly our items were handled during transport. I ended up having damages that total more than $6,000. Mr. Marley was not able to be reached for almost 2 weeks after the delivery of our broken items. When he did respond, he simply stated "sorry for the damages, but given that your stuff was delivered almost 2 weeks ago I need payment today." I wrote him an e-mail response back, sharing my frustrations and asking him to forward on proof that an insurance claim had been filed to replace our items prior to me submitting my final payment. He quickly escalated and said he would send my final balance to collections if I did not pay in within 24 hours. I sent the final balance and requested a follow up plan on how the damaged items would be resolved. The major item damaged was our tempurpedic mattress. We told him in writing, and verbally, multiple times that it needed to be stored flat in accordance with the warranty. Photos showed that the mattress was stored upright for the entirety of the transport. This voided the warranty, and because tempurpedic uses gel in the mattress and gravity causes the gel to shift and settle when transported improperly. When asked about dealing with the damaged mattress Mr. Marley said he would not replace it unless it was taken to a warehouse and "diagnosed" damaged by tempurpedic. Mind you, this process does not exist. He then told me I should file a warranty claim through tempurpedic and keep it "hush hush" about how the damage occurred. Unbelievable!!!! It has been 6 months, and to date Mr. Marley has not reimbursed ANY of the damaged caused by his moving company. He has stopped responding to e-mails as well. So, I will be taking him to court, as he is committing fraud and breaching our contract by stating in the contract that the items are fully insured. Please save yourself the hell i'm having to go through and do NOT use this moving service.

Great experience with these guys. The only movers I've worked with in Seattle that give an honest and complete estimate, including tax. No hidden fees like their commute time, you only pay for the move from point A to B. Polite and professional movers. Highly recommended.
- Eric B.

I was somewhat satisfied with my move with Seattle Small Moves. We did a very short-distance move but we wanted everything hands off so we asked for the full packing service as well. The packing itself was excellent. Nothing was broken. Now the bad. The guys were very kind, but they were a bit careless when it came to bumping into walls. They left a lot of marks, and our couch has some new marks on it that were never there before. They also didn't assemble our bed correctly and didn't even remember to add the support beam. My advice to management is to make sure your guys are more careful when handling things. Minor bumps add up. The door at our new place is scuffed. While they were speedy, I'd rather they be a bit more careful and take a bit of extra time. I initially gave them 3 stars, but given how reasonable their rates are, I upgraded to 4. In reality, I'd give them a 3.5.

I was able to book online without any issues & received a confirmation shortly after. Evan and Dustin were amazing. They were professional, punctual, & courteous! Would definitely use this company again. 10/10
- Eunice L.

Recently hired SSM to move a 2-bed apartment and they were terrific. Scheduling online was very quick and easy. On the day of, Evan and his team were total pros and were very helpful and friendly throughout the move. They arrived right on time and managed to hit their predicted window spot on. Plus, I really appreciate that the company doesn't insist on a super long minimum number of hours, even on weekends.
- Alex V.

Seattle Small Moves is the real deal. Evan and team were super helpful talking care of me end to end with no surprises. All things were dismantled, wrapped, packed, transported and assembled at the new place without any fuss. They were cordial, willing to go the extra mile to make me feel comfortable and knew all the tricks of the trade esp. moving items through narrow spaces, getting up stairs, keeping doors open, pulling in and out of tight parking spots etc. Highly recommend them for all your moving needs.
- Vaidy K.

We have used them twice now. I'd use them again. Pleasant, hard working guys with great attitudes. Really makes moving, an otherwise difficult experience a lot better. I must say that the first time we used them, we had the absolute best moving experience we have ever had. They helped us move on a Sunday. We have them very little notice as the place we were moving to became available unexpectedly and they were champs. The guys are genuinely likable and the work they do is quite good.
- Dave G.

From first contact with company through completion of move everything went smoothly and on time. I was stressed and under a deadline to move my boxes. Staff was calm, professional and accessible. In the future I would use their services again.
- Gail E.

I decided to move the contents of our small apartment across town. I did some research, asked for 3 different estimates and chose Seattle Small Moves. I had several questions, through email and phone calls. My inquiry and concerns were always met with patience and thorough explanations. On moving day they were on time, efficient and super polite. Attitude means a lot and having respectful young men in your home, handling your personal things inspires confidence. It was a good move and I would recommend them.
- Sharilyn C.

They were great! I had Evan and his team. They were professional, personable, quick and helpful. I would definitely recommend them.
- Christina R.

I had to move a refrigerator from a house to house. The small moving company helped me. They were on time and safe process of moving. Thank you.
- Jina L.

Seattle Small Moves just did two moves for me, having done my first with them 2.5 years ago. I came back to them because when they did that first move, a part on the washer dryer stacking kit got broken, and they paid to have it replaced and re-installed no questions asked. The guys this time were just wonderful. Competent, and uniformly kind and courteous. Evan, the lead, is a super neat person. I really enjoyed talking with him as we went through the process.
- Alicci D.

Called them last minute for help with a very specialized, small move(no truck, one location). They were very communicative from the office and following up, they worked with me on the quick turn around. The crew showed up a few minutes early and was professional and polite. The crew was careful in asking clarifying questions on what I needed, and worked quickly to get the job done faster than I thought. Overall excellent experience.
- Jessica W.

Worked for the company in 2017 as a lead we did very good job worked dont know what last guy was talking about but from hands on experience everyone professional people answer phone movers show up on time and often wondering how company makes money due to such low prices and ive worked a few moving companies in seattle alot arent at all. Nothing gets broke like ever and they do hire real professional movers only. On another note the owner was kinda reasonable in the end employment wise so we parted ways. Even so if i ever hired a moving company this would be the one reguardless. Summary would be professional/extreme cost effectiveness
- Andre K.

I needed a couch picked up and delivered from Bellevue to Seattle. Ken, Devan and team were fantastic to work with! Scheduling was a breeze. The team showed up early and prompt to start at our designated time. They showed care while packing and moving the couch. I would highly recommend their services to anyone and I will call them first in the future. Thanks guys!
- Nick S.

Absolutely amazing. We had a wonderful experience with Seattle Small Moves. They were prompt, professional, and very friendly. We normally do most of our moving ourselves. But decided to get some help this time and it was absolutely worth it. Made everything so fast and easy. Will definitely use them again.
- Keegan B.

They did an excellent job! Communicative, punctual, careful, and efficient. Would definitely have Evan, Fred, and crew help me with my next move.
- Kevin S.

The move went different than described in the terms: - None of the movers wore face coverings, and only 1 of the 2 wore gloves. - The truck was not like the pictures on Yelp. It was unmarked, seemed dirty, and had other furniture items in there prior to our move. - They taped around a buffet to prevent doors opening during transit, but upon removing the tape also peeled off the outer layer of the furniture. - Loading was mediocre; thankfully nothing damaged upon arrival. Got the job done but would pick a different moving company next time for the price paid.
- Enna C.

These guys are great! Moved very heavy items carefully. Communication was great too. They kept me informed as to when they would be here to do this move. Evan was great, helping wherever he could. He provided moving services way beyond what I expected. Thanks to both Evan and Fred for getting the job done smoothly. I couldn't be more happy with their service.
- Dennis K.

The worst experience! Please try to use someone else. I revived an estimate for (2) trucks and (3) movers as we were moving pretty far down I-5, we didn't want to have to take multiple trips. ( This was actually the suggestion of Ian at Small Movers) . The guys showed up 45 minutes late, and when they did, we had (3) workers, but only one truck! That truck was 25% full of someone elses stuff already. This meant we now needed to make (3) trips instead on just one! Evan assured me they wouldn't charge for the extra trips. Thank you but I would not have paid you for your mistake anyways. The problem was the move took 8 hours instead of 3. I had also added floor protection to the estimate and when the crew showed up, they said that they had no idea they were supposed to have it and did not have any, however it was on the invoice! If we weren't moving with a one day deadline, I would have asked them to leave right away and started over, but we were stuck of course. Once they started working one of the workers broke a tile from our patio table. I would not even mention it, but another worker took the tile so he could "match it and have it replaced". I have not heard a word from anyone and can't get a hold of them. Without the tile he took, I can't replace it myself. So the $800 patio table cannot be used now To top it all off, there are about 3-4 items that never arrived at the new house. we did not realize until a few days later when we ere fully unpacking. I guess it got mixed in with the other persons belongings that were already on the truck when they arrived. If you can, save yourself some additional moving headache and do not hire this company. Not sure how they have any good reviews at all, the whole experience was terrible.
- Matt M.

These guys are amazing!!! They got my oversized washer and dryer out of a very precarious basement situation without even a single scratch which I would have guessed would be impossible. Very professional, intelligent and capable movers, worth every penny. WOW!
