PLEASE READ IN ITS ENTIRETY. So I just had Johnny on the move help us with our move over the weekend. All I can say is BEWARE!!! The guys arrived on time which was good. They worked really hard getting my stuff on the truck. I moved out of a two bedroom condo into a house. The problem is they quoted me $420 for the first two hours and $110 per hour after that. They brought a truck that barely fit my furniture and boxes. Once they filled up the truck, I still had a whole house full of stuff that literally took another trucks worth to fill up. They drove about 30 miles to my new house which took them an hour and a half to get there. Then after paying over $1k to move the first truck, they had to drive all the way back ( on my dime) to get the rest of my stuff. We called to speak with the manager that set up our appointment and they said they would get someone to help the 3 guys that were already moving to speed up the process. That guy never came. The management was complete unhelpful.The whole job took a total of 16 hours (6 hours of drive time worth $660) to move everything which all could’ve been avoided had they brought a bigger truck. The last trip back to my house they left at 9:50PM and they got to my house at 11:30PM ( I timed them) when they got to the house they said I had to pay for an addition 2 hours for them to load off the second truck into my garage. At this point I paid them another $880 and they said if it takes less than 2 hours of time to unload the truck I’ll get the different back. I had to do something so I helped them move it off the truck my self. It took 29 minutes. They charged me an hours worth and refunded me the $110.The total job cost me over $1700 to move a small 2 bedroom condo with barely any big furniture. That’s ridiculous. I’m upset and feel like I was complete cheated. Get this too, They almost broke my $2000 glass table cause one of the guys dropped the glass also they ruined a brand new glider chair.Their policy for damaged items is .30/ pound so if your $5k TV gets broken and weighs 100 pounds all you get is $30 bucks???? Complete SCAM!! I wish someone did a review on them like this because I would’ve never hired them.This should’ve been a 6-7 hour job MAX. Please do some research when moving so you don’t have to do the work for them and take your things off the truck while your paying for them to do it. read less

My choice to choose Johnny on the Move was because they were the least expensive on the list provided by Move Matcher. That was a HUGE mistake. They were scheduled to move me from 8am - 12pm. They arrived at 11:30am, citing a flat tire. We I expressed my concern about the late start and the fact that I reserved the elevator in my building from 8am -12pm, I was told I would still have to pay $80/hr for any time beyond 2hrs. There was no empathy, concern or consideration for my position, dispite it being caused by their tardiness. To make matters worse, during the move they broke 3 lamps. When I asked will they pay for my lamps, I was reminded of the document I signed stating that I was only covered for .30 cents per pound. I was told I COULD HAVE purchased additional insurance that would have covered the cost of my lamps (but I was never offered this insurance before). I also found several of my art pieces were damaged. When I called the company on Monday to express my disatisfaction, the phone was answered and I was asked my name. When I said my name the guy on the other end hung up the phone. I immediately called back and no one answered the phone. This was the worst move in my entire life and a very expensive lesson. Everyone has a choice with whom to do business, I recommend you do your due diligence, read the fine print and proceed at your own risk, IF you choose to use this company. read less

My overall all experience with my movers was awesome. I choose Johnny on the move. And I'm glad I did. They were wonderful. First of all, before I booked them, I was stressed out. My husband was in charge of securing the movers. We had less than a week to move a 3 bedroom, 2 bath house. Unfortunately his movers fell through. So I went online, and it was like looking for a needle in a haystack. It was so many movers to choose from. But I finally chose Johnny on the Move. First, Jacquline was great. She was friendly and answered all my questions. Second the movers was on time. They packed my house in a little over an hour. If left up to me, I would have just put the items on the truck. But they took time to carefully wrap each item before placing it on the truck. Third, they were so friendly. When we got to my new home. It felt like we were friends. They carefully unpacked each item. They arranged it just as asked. And they cleaned as they went. Lastly, there were items that I needed moved to the basement. It wasn't part of the move. But they were heavy, and I couldn't do it myself. I asked if they would do it. And they did. I was so pleased with them, I gave them a generous tip. They took the stress out of what could've been a very stressful situation. I would definately recommend Johnny on the Move. They're very professional. read less

Best movers I have ever had. I moved a few times in the last 15 years. This one was the biggest. I had bad experiences in the past and I am always a little worried when hiring movers. My initial interaction with booking was easy and transparent. On day of my move all the gentleman had high energy and very communicative about each step, and very friendly. I was extremely pleased with the service and plan on recommending them to all my friends and family. read less

Awesome movers!! Totally saved the day. My original movers canceled with no notice, which forced me to scramble to find movers in same day. Working with them was awesome from my initial call to the movers themselves. They even followed up after the move to make sure everything was ok. Would highly recommend. read less
