Christopher G.We were completely satisfied with our experience using G&J to move us out of our second home studio apartment to our primary residence. The movers were...
Elizabeth CuttnerI recently had a terrific experience with G&J Moving! David and Juan showed up exactly on time and were fast and professional. They were very accommodating with my "eclectic" packing style of an assortment of boxes and bags and furniture. All of the rates and charges were clearly spelled out, so there were no hidden charges. Plus, they got everything done in less time than they said, and didn't overcharge me for their time. First time hiring movers, and I would highly recommend!
Gloria RWe have used G&J Moving twice now, and they always do such a great job! I've had three different crews, and not one has disappointed. Our first move was a local move, and they were quick and efficient, and very reasonable. This move was over 180 miles, and we had two different crews; the first being Mat and crew who packed the truck with our household goods...Great job guys! The second crew was Roman and his guy who drove and unpacked out stuff...I can't say enough good things about them! I found them very professional, punctual, and reasonably priced. I highly recommend them, and would use them again.
Jacqueline LambThis is the third time I have used G&J Moving. My experience with them has been amazing. These guys are efficient and fast. I trusted them to move huge and heavy family heirlooms and they did so beautifully. I trust this company completely. I have had now three separate crews with three men on a crew and each one of them was fantastic. If I ever have to move a house again, I will absolutely use G&J. Thank you G&J for always doing such a great job!!!
Debbie DoakI have used G&J Moving a few times and highly recommend them. I would never use another company given my positive experience each time! The team they sent were so professional and nice and really went the extra mile to make moving day a breeze. The were careful with everything on both ends of the move and it took less time than I expected. Their prices are very reasonable and there are no surprises at the end of the day.
Charles StockmanIt was nothing short of fantastic. First, They met me at Barnes and Noble to get the key for the storage unit since it was an easy walk from the Springfield Metro for me. On the day of the move, we were in constant communication and they did a great job moving my furniture into the apartment.
Megan E.This was one of the WORST moving experiences I think I've had. To start, I booked G&J about a month prior to my move in July, and confirmed several times...
Kathryne DadmunThe three gentlemen that came were on time and very polite. I was a little dishearten that my estimate went up almost $200 at the end. The move still happened during bad weather and I am assuming that is why it took longer to load, drive and unload which added to the bottom line. Then the charge I got for 3-4 rolls of tape. I did not know that I was going to be charged for that. If I knew it would have equalled almost $40, I would have offered the 3-4 rolls of packing tape I still had out. Now that I know these things, I would still use this company.
Lori AlterI am extremely impressed by G & J Moving! They are the first company that gave me a reasonable price quote. When I said I would think about it, they called back the next day to see if I had any questions. There were no hidden costs or fees. The two movers were on time, extremely organized and very pleasant. We moved our things into a storage facility. I will absolutely hire G & J Moving again.
Rachel NorthridgeCalled to confirm the day before, and 30 minutes prior to agreed time. Showed up within 15 min. Did a thorough walkthrough of my house to confirm what was going & staying and thoroughly wrapped all of my furniture. Assembled my bed & dresser in my new house. Were very courteous, polite & professional. Would highly recommend!
Vince D.We were thoroughly impressed with the professionalism of these movers. The team of Nick, Hassan and David were first class. Every detail was explained to...
Nicholas MaloneTerrible experience from start to finish (Late, Wrong Truck, Damaged Belongings, Rude & Bill was $200 over Estimate!!). Our truck was over 2.5 hours late and we were on a deadline (every time we called they said they were 20 minutes away). They then brought the wrong size truck, which was way too small, and required them to jam 2X the amount of stuff that should be in that size truck. The jamming led to multiple pieces of our belongings being broken and un-repairable. The foreman on the job was rude and borderline aggressive. What should have been a very happy day (moving in to our 1st family home), turned into a stressful nightmare. We've spent the last 7 months trying to get them to fix some of the damaged goods as promised, and they have not responded. I'm sure there are good and bad experiences with every company, but i would avoid if possible. There initial quote was very competitive, but that is only because they go over the allotted time they estimate, and overcharge you in the end.
Kellen PrecivaleI highly recommend G&J Moving and Storage company. The professionalism how quickly everything was wrap in a properly way, the way they handled all my furnitures, and how fast everything was done. Thank you so much for make my moving so easy and smooth.
Sharon JentzerThe two movers took less than 10 min. to move two heavy pieces of furniture from my basement to my garage. They were polite, efficient, and effective. What more can one ask for?
Gordon R Snurr III have been spending many weeks in the DC and southern MD areas in a work apartment. I have moved 3 times in the past year due to changes at work or social issues. I was so lucky to find G&J this past time. Very professional, friendly, hard working and affordable. Highly recommend their services!
Sarah LesherFantastic hard workers. Very helpful, very efficient, great job. EXCEPT -- why send out a crew knowing that part of job was emptying a storage cube I said was 50% or more boxes, with only one furniture dolly and no hand truck? I could have loaned them either dolly or hand truck or both! I was very impressed by the more slightly built man, said he was only 120 lbs -- sorry, forgot names -- who, lacking a second dolly or hand truck, would bend at 35 degrees and carry three boxes stacked behind him on his back! What a worker! Would definitely use again.
Christian NelsonThe two gentlemen who competed my move were pleasant, professional, moves quickly and delivers my materials with care. Would definitely use again.
Jennifer HudsonThe movers we had were great - very conscientious and careful with our furniture. The only reason I gave four stars instead of five was that the move was delayed by several hours due to an issue with tires on the truck. While I know that perhaps that was unavoidable, the communication from the company management was not there. Instead I just kept getting calls from the driver.
Arvia LynchThe movers were absolutely amazing!!! They came in and work steady and promptly .. they were also pleasant and polite . They professionally wrap my furniture and took extremely care not to touch walls or scrap my wood floors. I was absolutely amazed at their performance. Once I was bending to pick up a box to help, the guy stop me, took the box and said “you give us the the command and we’re do the moving”. They never once stop to take a break or to eat ! I had to make them stop to get a drink of water/juice and offered lunch ., they only took time to drink only . The entire transition from one house to the other was extremely efficient, timely and effective. They put the furniture in the rooms and places I wanted them . They did not mind if I changed my mind and wanted them to replace something. They were just wonderful! In addition the cost was affordable and from the beginning of scheduling the the representative Eric Wilmot was very professional and extremely polite! Eric was able to guide me how to get reserved parking and made it easy for me to change date and time if needed. I highly recommend this moving company! I definitely plan to tell others, and will only use them if I ever gave to mive again. Moving is stressful all by itself so having your move job made easy and delightful as It was for me, is what everybody wants! Thank you G& J !!! A. Lynch
Robert CavendishFantastic experience,this was the first time I ever used a moving company and now G&J moving company will always have my business. The movers were on time and professional and great to work with. Thank you for a wonderful experience.
Anna WestExcellent experience!! Alexander came out and provided an estimate right away and responded to every question I asked (God love him..I asked a lot of questions) in a very timely manner even during off duty hours. His quote was literally half what another equally rated company I got a quote from was. Then his guys came out and did an amazing job parking and getting in and getting everything taken care of. They were very efficient and super respectful, friendly and pleasant. Ed, Franklyn and Tindai (I know I spelled that name horribly wrong) were smiling the whole time. They arrived to pick up on time and delivered on time. They communicated location status during the move from VA to NY and advised when they were on their way to the delivery address. THANK YOU!
Jimmy TopilowI wanted to give a 5 out of 5 star review for your company. Sam and his partner (I cannot remember his name unfortunately, Chepe?) were absolutely fantastic. They were extremely hard workers, very diligent and careful, and very efficient. They were kind and fast and understanding. The whole process went very smoothly thanks to their hard work and good work.
Kayla BurkeI would never recommend this moving company if you need your house packed. First, they give a 3 hour window for start time. Second, they pack empty boxes in flimsy packing boxes. Third, the tape popped on almost every box (top/bottom). You'd think they'd know to reinforce the tape on the bottom of the boxes so that they wouldn't pop open. Forth, they used the tallest boxes possible to pack my glasses and ceramic mug together. Fifth, they plastic wrap mattresses and tape together multiple boxes to packed flat screen TVs! No mattress protector pads/bags. No TV boxes. There is no reason that a home that is 1400sq should take 8 hours to pack with 5 guys! Movers . Com even shows that a 1400sq full move should take 5 guys 3-4 hours!!! Why send 5 people if it takes them just as long as 3 guys? The MAJOR issue... They gave me an estimate and then tried to charge me twice as much but waited 3 hours after our initial walk through to notify me that there was a change to the plan. Instead of notifying me immediately, as a place with actual customer service would do, they didn't even give me the opportunity to say NO! They forced me to be stuck with the work they were doing and left me in a place of having them finish the day out. If you want a packing job done right, look elsewhere.
Katie LeeThis company made my move very easy! The movers were prompt and professional. They wrapped and moved all my furniture without a scratch. And they did this in the midst of a heat wave. The cost was reasonable and they actually matched my best offer so it is hard to turn that down! I would definitely recommend this company!
David E McGuireNeeded a packing/moving solution, and found them listed on Angie’s List. Within a half hour (at most) of my first email, I was speaking directly with Eric. He setup a time to come to the house and scope the work, we had a great chat, he gave me his estimate, we shook hands, off he went. He reached back out within a half hour to apologize, as he had quoted only the moving, not the packing. This is a really important detail, because 1) he corrected the error quickly and 2) professionally, without falling over himself or making a big deal of it. I agreed, and thanked him for keeping me informed. Eric also made a point that they are charging hourly for labor and materials, so the more I do, the less it’ll cost. Eric, 5 stars. But I got the date wrong; I thought we were packing Friday and moving Saturday, but my move in date was Sunday. After a spot of blind panic, I reached out, spoke to someone other than Eric, who said this happens from time to time, when did I want to move things too? I gave him the new dates, he shifted the schedule, sent me a new confirmation letter, done. That guy, whomever he was, and customer service in general, 5 stars. Saturday. Packing crew are scheduled between 9 & 10, they arrived at 9:35. Took 3.5 hours to finish packing the house, the team leader counted out the boxes, gave me a final that was about a grand under what Eric had quoted, because: Eric specifically said he prefers to quote high, and, I had been busting my butt getting things packed, thrown away, and cleaned up in advance. That saved me nearly a grand. Which is an exceptional level of honesty, and the team was polite, efficient, and exceptionally pleasant to work with. 5 stars. Sunday. Went very much like Saturday. We grabbed the cats and left, they followed behind a few hours later, everything arrived as it should. While I have an odd nitpick here or there, the truth is packing and moving are an insanely draining process. And having a team that has done this multiple times, that quotes prices fairly, that was completely professional through the process, that’s a 5 star company. My thanks to the team for their hard work and effort.

bertha ramosAmazing! I found this company online and called because of their good reviews. I am very happy that I did. I spoke to Eric and he was very knowledgeable. He answered all of my questions before I asked them and made me feel very relaxed about my upcoming move. I found this company because Of the reviews so I wanted to make sure I left one. I am former military and have moved a lot! There are many companies out there that don’t always care or do a great job, so far I feel very comfortable and Eric has made what can easily become a very stressful process extremely easy. Once they complete the move I will definitely update, but so far the experience has been amazing and a step above the rest!
Claudia BermudezI was extremely happy to be able to contact my consultant at all times. It made the stress of moving more manageable. The whole team was very professional. I was very happy.

I recently completed my move and I was extremely satisfied with the service, timeliness and how they handled my stuff. I moved into a new place and they did an excellent job!! It’s a brand new place and they made sure to take extra precautions laying mats down and covering everything. It took longer than anticipated and they never cut corners or rushed themselves sacrificing my belongings. I have moved over 15 times and this has been the BEST moving experience hands down! Beginning to end I highly recommend and will use again!!
Sandy DahlborgI wish I had paid more attention to the negative reviews, as they better represent the experience I had. Before the move, Eric was very responsive, kept following up with me etc. The day of the move, things went downhill. The truck was an hour late, two of the movers put their cold, wet beverages on my solid wood furniture--I had to keep removing one of the cans to keep it from damaging the wood. One of the movers was rude and told me that wrapping my items--a service that was listed as "free" in the email I got from Eric--would cost me extra, and that they charged for the shrink wrap by square foot. He then asked if I wanted my mattress wrapped, another item listed in the email as being free, and confirmed that the alternative was to let it free float around the truck. The email also said they provide a free wardrobe box for your clothing, which I didn't get, so I had to jam mine into my already full car. They almost forgot my mattress upstairs, and at one point, they just stopped wrapping things. When I asked why they didn't wrap the last three lamps when they'd done all the rest of them, I was told these lamps were too small (???) and that "most people just take them in their car," which they could see was filled to the roof. They didn't want to take my washer and dryer, telling me that they were told not to move these because they might get "shocked." The rude one finally said he'd do it, but acted like he was doing me a big favor. They took a big box off the truck and jammed it into my car without asking or telling me, shoving things around to make room and damaged one item. I tried calling Eric twice that afternoon, but he never responded. I've since tried calling both his number and the main phone number to discuss being overcharged and the BS they pulled on me, but apparently they don't care once they have your money because I have not heard back. They were more helpful once we arrived at the destination, though I helped them at this point because I wanted to be done. However, the rude guy claimed he wasn't aware there was an extra stop, though that was explicitly written on the contract he later handed me. He seemed like he just didn't want to be there. I did tip them generously because it was a very hot day, but they charge a 4% service fee (!) for processing a credit card payment. I would never recommend this business: bait and switch, hidden charges, unprofessional staff, and zero customer service. Use them at your own risk--the helpfulness didn't outweigh being overcharged, rude and unprofessional behavior, or the lack of response from anyone at this business. Pay attention to the negative reviews. Read their response. To the review reading public, I stand by my review.
Tim McKeeFrom the first time Eric came to assess our move and he came another time to reassess to the day we put things in storage up in Connecticut he he is fantastic! Ed the driver and the other two movers down in Virginia we're great as well making sure nothing got damaged. When Ed arrived 2 Days Later and the two local movers met him as he opened the truck everything was safe and sound. they moved things up to our two separate storage units in a timely manner. My wife and I highly recommend G& J Moving and Storage. Thank you!
Francesca CheryThe movers at G & J Moving LLC where amazing. They were kind, friendly, professional, helpful and fantastic. I was incredibly impressed with the caliber of service they provided. I am a very happy & satisfy customer. I will undeniably recommend them to family & friends. THANK YOU FOR A GREAT EXPERIENCE!!! Ms. Chery 8/29/18
Sergey K.I have lived in DC area for 10 years and in that time I've lived in 7 different apartments. Anyways, my move has been stressful - to say the least....
Gale M.I had used this company twice before without any issues. This time around I am purely rating an employee Moe and their customer service. I was ready to...
Samantha HicksI had a great experience with G&L. Moe provided an accurate quote and followed up via phone the day prior to the move. The two gentlemen that assisted with my move were very careful and professional. Nothing that they moved was damaged. The only thing I wish they would have done was call when when they were on their way in the morning. I happened to be outside when they pulled up but didn't receive a warning call. Otherwise, everything was great!
IrisEverything was speedy and done really well. Our wood table had some scratches on the side which wasn’t super noticeable. But they guys worked really hard to make sure everything was taken up. I’m really happy with this moving company and will definitely use them again!
