As I sit here amongst boxes and mess trying to bang out a post worth reading, I know one thing for a fact: this post is going to be short and sweet (my inner Jin rejoices).
We had a great experience with Motivated Movers, our first time ever using professionals for packing and moving.
Our 3 Bedroom 2 Full bath home was operating pretty slim after a sort/purge/store session, which resulted in a 5’x10′ storage unit of seasonal and non necessity items. Even our attic and under the house crawl space was practically empty, so it was not much of a surprise when it only took two hours for three guys to pack up our house.
We had an additional one hour worth of packing on our own to do for high security items and tools and such that we needed access to until the last minute.
On the day of the move, the guys arrived early to our storage unit, took care of the stuff there within an hour (lots of boxes and bins plus one shelf and a jogger) and then the rest of load in took two hours at the house.
We moved just a slightly over a mile away, so it only took an additional hour to unload and set up.
Derrick, Jason, Acky, and Michael were really easy to work with, extremely courteous, nice, and FUN. They clearly were veterans of the trade and managed both jobs with speed, and since nothing went missing, broke, or scratched, I’d give them two thumbs up for a job well done.
Moving is truly a most dreaded and grueling task. Motivated Movers made it less so by doing it all and with a smile and personality.
They have this internal bonus system based on a positive Kudzu.com review, but try as I may, I could not post my glowing remarks on their website. Methinks they did not care for my yahoo email account because it did not have any contacts filled in. It kept rejecting my submission, and call me a conspiracy theorist, but I think its because kudzu wanted me to use another account with more data to mine.
So, I did one better and dedicated this post to them–I appreciated the whole process of reserving the services with Jeff through getting packed up and moved with a great group of guys. Thanks for all of your help Motivated Movers!
Packing: $155/hour for three packers with a three hour minimum (total two hours for our packing)

*We had a few extra charges for tape and packing paper, but provided all the boxes and some packing materials.
