    When I first called I was very stressed about booking my move because it was last minute but Ricky assisted me and I felt comfortable booking with this company he told me what to expect and how the guys would move my furniture! The next … More day of my move I had Jon and Kevin help me and they were amazing!!!! They took care of my furniture and moved fast as well I was very surprised. Jon was even taking time to show Kevin some new techniques and had him learning how to lead I think he said he was the manager! I wish I could give this company 10 stars!

    College dudes totally changed my opinion about moving. From booking the appointment to the outstanding movers I had. Carlton and Steve went above & beyond to ensure my items were moved safely! They were thorough & had great communication … More about what I was signing & the process at hand. I would recommend Carlton & Steve to every customer!! I’m really blown away about how seamless they made this move for me.

The first time I used them, they were moving several expensive items for me and they took the time to ensure that these items would … More be safe during the move.

    I scheduled my move from 8-10 am and Blake called me about 753 to let me know he was just a few minutes away. I was definitely impressed with him being on time. He and Kevin got to my home and started moving things quickly. The job was … More so much quicker than I thought because they were working hard. Very professional and made sure I understood what I was signing and the cost involved. I will definitely use there services again and recommend them to family and friends.

    They did a great job. Super professional and courteous. They showed up on time and worked hard the entire time. They are very well priced. Awesome rate for the size of our move. Every other company quoted me at least $1,000 more for my … More 5 bedroom move. You guys really took the stress out of my day. Thank you so much. Highly recommend for anyone looking for competent movers who care.
