I went with First Rate Movers for my move in early August and it was a great experience. The movers showed up on time, they were professional, courteous, careful and efficient. It ended up going faster than expected. High-quality service and a stress-free experience. I would definitely recommend First Rate Movers to others.

We had an atypical situation, as we needed to move out of our house, store our belongings for 2 months, and then move into our new home. First Rate handled it all with efficiency and a fair price. We had the same team of movers on both ends, and they were a pleasure to work with! Would highly recommend their services for moving and storage.

I first came in contact with First Rate when I needed to move last minute, on a holiday. I’d always moved myself in the past and couldn’t gather enough people to get everything done short notice so I did an internet search and up popped their add. With a name like First Rate, they have a lot to live up to, and have never failed, or disappointed me, or my friends who have used their services. I even had one friend call me, shocked, to say: “It was like magic! All of my stuff is moved and I barely had time to go to the bank machine for the cash to pay them!” They have inspired my moving policy, which is to always use their services when I move (which I have done 3 times), and to refer them to my friends and acquaintances liberally! The process from first contact through to payment at the end of the move is professional, painless and personal: every person on their team is there to help in any way they can! I can’t say enough good things about them!

I was very pleased with the service I received from First Rate movers. Very quick response to emails and phone calls. ***, **** and **** were very friendly and went above and beyond their duties. I have moved a number of times, including overseas, and this has been a very positive experience from start to finish. Everything was done in an extremely professional manner, by an extremely professional crew. I highly recommend their services.

I could not have been more pleased with the move. The friendly and prompt phone and email service with **** started it off. ***** and **** were professional and friendly hard workers and the runners for the floor and quilts to wrap furniture were clean and new. They moved lots of heavy awkward fitness equipment quickly with no marks on the wall at all, it all really couldn’t have gone any better.

I contacted First Rate Movers after reading reviews on this site and elsewhere. I knew I HAD to deal with this company and I am sure glad I did. I have moved a number of times, including long distances, and this has been the BEST experience ever, from start to finish. Everything was done in an extremely professional manner, by an extremely professional crew. I followed their moving tips/instructions, which helped the team shave an entire hour off the estimate I was given. I would have NO HESITATION whatsoever recommending First Rate Movers and would use them again at the drop of a hat. Anyone needing moving services, should look no further and use this company.

Awesome movers we will hire again!!! Polite, efficient and professionsl with great prices. They managed to be faster than the quote so the cost was excellent and resonable.we would highly recomment First Rate Movers in ******!!!!!


Diane B.

We hired first rate movers for our latest move. We had a very positive experience. A crew of three moving professionals arrived on time, closely followed our instructions on what needed to be moved and where and they carefully wrapped all pieces of furniture and frames that weren’t in boxes. The crew was very professional, polite, cordial and a pleasure to work with. We highly recommend this company for a worry-free move. They clearly chose the proper name for their company.


Gisèle T.

One of my friends recommended First Rate Movers. I had never dealt with them and I was impressed by the quality of their service. I was a little stressed about the move and **** was extremely gracious and patient with me. He was very quick to return my calls. The movers arrived right on time and they were very professional and efficient. All my furniture was wrapped and they were careful to not damage the walls and the floors. Great experience with a great company.


Don W.

From the first call to **** to book our move, to the loading and unloading our furniture, we have nothing but praise for the professionalism, work ethic, courtesy and the care and respect for our property.
