These guys were great! They came in and did their job quietly and efficiently. They showed up fifteen minutes early and were packed and unpacked in less than three hours. I would highly recommend these guys!
The young men who managed our move were very professional and courteous. They actually made the whole experience pleasurable. Their attention to detail in handling and wrapping the items moved was most impressive. The office staff was wonderful as well and made scheduling really easy! I will not hesitate to use again, and will for sure recommend to family and friends.
Can’t say enough about these guys! They are professional, punctual, reasonably priced and handled my stuff with care. I’ve used Lift It Moving for multiple moves and I wouldn’t use anyone else. I have and continue to recommend them to anyone in search of a no hassle moving team
