I'm surprised to see so many positive reviews as my experience was less than.... Joey's moved me twice because I needed to put my things in storage for a short time.First, I paid for 2 storage lockers. They just used one, and forgot to communicate this to me. The storage company 'had a policy about letting them know within a certain period of time that one of the lockers wasn't going to be used. I was past that time frame since I didn't know. Wasted money!Second, they broke my piano leg and an old side table with family history. These two pieces were the only pieces that I really cared about and told them so.Other items were damaged too - my computer desk had a variety of missing parts (since it needed to come apart), a tall cabinet with two parts was not able to be put back together again, and a floor lamp. All went into the garbage!Plus, they put stickers with my name on EVERYTHING- the kind of stickers that don't come off and need Goo Gone to take off the residue and the paper. UGH!I'm writing this review 18 months after the move as I'm preparing to move again. I've been reminded of my terrible experience with this company, which included the repair person they sent to fix my piano, side table and computer table (wasn't repaired properly nor was it usable). The resolutions and fixes they offered me were less than satisfactory!Needless to say, I am using different movers this time plus a company that just moves pianos.

Fantastic experience. They were able to accommodate a last minute job, super friendly, the movers were nice and none of my belongings were damaged! Would hire them again and recommend them to friends

I have used Joey's movers twice. The first time, my move was fine and went relatively smoothly. This time, it was a very unpleasant experience; they didn't send enough movers (so I hired another mover from TaskRabbit on the spot to help out, which greatly increased the cost of the move), the move took almost 4 times as long as I had been quoted for, and the owner was rude and defensive over the phone when I called to see if they could send out another mover. I will not be using them again or recommending them to others.

I had a last minute move need of an extra heavy work bench. I had an extremely short deadline. They worked me in the same day. Very professional. They went above and beyond to take care of what I needed. Very thankful.

Will not let movers have breaks they say cuzstomers don’t pay for breaks they lied to me to get me in the door the company is just a lie and very unprofessional. Owner and co owner are very disrespectful told me I don’t know how to listen and I was not entitled to a break please think twice before using these guys they don’t even use tape to secure blankets on furniture
