Starving Students Movers

This is my company

How we started

From its humble beginning, two recent high school graduates unable to pay for college, or «starving students,» dug a borrowed «Dodge Power Wagon,» a former World War II weapons carrier used to tow cannons, out of a mudslide. These two students painted «Starving Students» on the side of the Wagon, parked it on a local highway, and their successful moving company was born. Starving Students opened its first branch in the basement of a log cabin that was the former home of Tom Mix, a silent movie star. This branch was located in Laurel Canyon, a suburb of Los Angeles, California.

At the time, many famous movie stars and musicians lived in the Canyon, and Starving Students became their preferred full service moving company. With hundreds of trucks in their fleet, Starving Students is currently one of California and Nevada's largest home movers, moving tens of thousands of families every year. The moving company's corporate headquarters is based in Southern California. They extend their professional moving services to thirty-three (33) locations throughout nine (9) states in the western and eastern portions of the United States, as well as in Texas. The multiple locations allow the company to offer affordable moving and storage to a local and national market.

Whether you are looking for cross country movers or a local door to door moving company, Starving Students supplies the best movers to get the job done. Starving Students follows the same age old traditions upon which the moving company was founded in 1973. Our goal and mission statement is simple, «To provide our customers with high quality, stress-free, professional moving and storage services at excellent value with a lower final cost.»

A moving company predominantly known for its success in local moves, Starving Students offers long distance residential and commercial moves, as well as full-service, portable storage containers. The choice is clear: choose Starving Students to fulfill your one-stop moving and storage needs!

I actually had a pretty bad experience with this moving company. On top of an already stressful and financially difficult moving situation, I booked my move through Starving Students, and David G and Rey E from BLVD moving company showed up. To start, they couldn't park their truck in my driveway, which was fine, just had to track down several neighbors to move their cars so the movers could park on the street instead. Not sure why they brought such a big truck for a 1 bedroom move, but fine. As I mentioned, it was a 1 bedroom ove: one bedroom set, entertainment center, refrigerator, and about 15 boxes (not even a couch or living room or dining room set). And upon arrival, they told me they would estimate about 6 hours for moving these items less than 2 miles away. 6 hours?! Are you kidding me?! After telling them they need to get it done in 3 hours, he basically told me they will work at their pace, and I can help carry boxes to the truck, and that I can take the smaller boxes myself in my car. Wow ok.They worked extremely slow, taking one box at a time (when clearly he could have stacked 2-3 boxes on the dolly to save time). And every time I would go out to the truck when I would carry boxes out there to help them, the guy would be on his phone!!Also- they failed to mention the 29.99 fee for wrapping certain furniture pieces (which I told them not to worry about doing since it would slow down the move, but they did it anyway so I assumed it would be included in the price agreed upon).The job got done in 3 hours, but somehow I got charged for 3.5 hours, plus the 29.99 wrapping. Needless to say.  This was the WORST moving experience I have EVER experienced, and it's safe to say I will never use Starving Students or BLVD moving ever again! And I will make sure to pass the  word along to any friends that are moving as well!

I have used SS before and always have a good experience. They show up on time, work their butts off (and both times I've had stairs), and the price is great. They are friendly without losing professionalism or wasting your time. I don't want to move again, but if I do- will definitely hire SS again. If only I could get someone to pack for me. :)

They were professional. However they helped themselves to a few my items. In  other words they STOLED some of my things. They were really not that expensive but it's was the principal of the thing that these items were mine and they took them. I will never use their company again. They were a bunch of thieves.

Here is some advice, stay away!   I used starving students recently for a move and they broke my coffee table and then left the mess in the living room even though we had moved out of the home.   Adding insult to injury they refused to hull off the junk.Furthermore they left scratches in our hardwood floors.   Stay away.
