    I highly recommend. Laquan, Cameron, and Gabe did an amazing job with my move. I didn’t lift a finger. They placed things where I asked, they loaded and unloaded in a timely fashion. They were kind, respectable, and personable. I absolutely … More will use them on my next move. Best moving crew. I give 5 plus stars.

    We were a military family of more than 30 years, so we are more than a little familiar with the art of moving and the characteristics of top notch moving companies. Not terribly long ago a local move had us searching for a moving company. … More It didn’t take long for us to settle on College Dudes Help You Move. Their professional presentation and obviously experienced staff made College Dudes stand head and shoulders above any other companies that we might have been considering.. On moving day their staff showed up at the scheduled time with a written plan for the day’s activities that they readily shared with us. They handled our belongings with care and even went so far as to make suggestions about transporting our house plants. In our many, many moves this one stands out as the absolute best. Thank you College Dudes!

    During military career, I moved 11 times in 8 years. And over moved 4 times since. So I know movers. College Dudes is one of the best. It's well run, well organized, and, you're replied to In a timely manner. And I love that they … More employ college students, which helps them make money that could possibly help them offset some of those student loans that weigh them down for YEARS after college. So by using them, not only do I get a quality, insured move, but I have a small part in helping a student achieve eventual financial freedom. Would definitely use them for my next move.

    College Dudes Help U Move was the best moving experience I have ever had. I have moved many times through the US.
    From the initial order to the final box delivered. The men showed early and we’re prepared. They performed a walk through
    … More the house. They made a quick plan and began work.
    The owner, Abraham, stopped by to ensure the move was on track. He was a delight and very professional.
    Later in the day the GM stopped in and had his men move a few items that we were leaving with the house that were too bulky for me to get my hands around and they willingly and quickly went into action.
    Moving is always stressful. It was nice having professionals that not only performed the job with speed and professionalism but the little extra help went a long way.
    Thanks again College Dudes Help U Move.

    We were very impressed with our movers! They all worked the entire time non-stop with a professional and courteous attitude. With the guidance of Jackson , one of the managers, they were very organized to get the job done in the timely … More amount of time that was slated for our move.

    This company did a fantastic job moving a piano to our house. They were on time, courteous, and most of all careful. I couldn't believe that I could call one day and the very next day they made the move for us. We will definitely be … More calling College Dudes for any future moving needs.
  • Avatar Sonja Langford ★★★★★ 5 months ago
    I used College Dudes Help U Move to move things from a storage unit and secondary location to a single family residency this past week. Three guys showed up who were kind, thoughtful, and quick. They efficiently moved all my furniture and … More boxes, wrapped things up that could get damaged, and made sure to put things in the correct rooms so unpacking would go smoother. All of my belongings were packed and mostly wrapped prior to their arrival which made the move quick and painless. Could not recommend them more.
