Full disclosure: I am being offered a $50 Amazon gift card for this review -- and I'm sure I was contacted by the company because I left a positive review on their site. Please be aware that the reviews on Yelp may not be a representative sample of the full universe of reviews for the company. All that said, this review is as sincere and balanced as I am capable of making it. We used Shleppers twice in approximately a week, once for our own big, complicated move and once for my parents' smaller move, which I coordinated. Our big move involved two steps. We'd left some items in our old place in the far end of the city to help stage that space for sale, and had to move those items to our new place. We also had most of our belongings in another unit of the same building we were moving into. It was a full day job and our team of five wonderful guys from Uzbekistan gave us their all. They were conscientious and incredibly kind people who were just a pleasure to be around throughout the entire process. They were respectful of our first born son (a canine), our belongings, our human children -- and just generally great human beings with rich life stories. We would want them to return as guests, not just contractors. There was once slight mishap with a bookshelf, where one leg broke off during the move, but they took the time to fix it and fix it well. It's now as sturdy as ever. They took care to clean up after themselves. I can't say enough nice things! The second move was for my parents, from a one bedroom to another in the same neighborhood. I was slightly less happy with the administrative side for this move: The move was originally scheduled for the wrong day because of a data entry error. I should've caught that error, but I didn't, so I was partly at fault. However... the sales person I reached about the issue -- not the original person on the matter -- was calm and polite and very helpful. He was able to make things right to a great extent by scheduling for the following day, for an additional $100. The movers on the day of were, according to my parents, polite and careful, even when faced with my sometimes persnickety, picky older father. They moved without mishap. Both teams arrived right on time and did their work well. Their procedures for getting COIs to buildings when necessary was streamlined and pain free. Communication was excellent. Customer service was generally very good. The movers we experienced were more than excellent. We were once avowed Moishe's fans, but in light of Shleppers' more reasonable prices and awesome moving teams to judge by our two experiences (we've found movers to be more hit or miss with Moishe's), we would not hesitate to recommend Shleppers to everyone we know and like. For anyone we know and don't like, well... that's another story.... ;)

You get what you pay for!!I really hate moving (who doesn't?), but I especially hate moving on short notice. I called Shleppers and they came promptly at 10am and we were done with my move at 1pm. Incredible. My movers were very helpful and packed up all of my stuff very carefully. This was definitely one of the most seamless and stress-free moves of my entire life.

Simple, streamlined process from start to finish. Our move was complicated by new construction and we had to cancel and reschedule our move several times due to false starts. Gavin and the team at Shleppers were great at accommodating our crazy move making the process as painless as possible. The Beast move team led by Isma was awesome! They were fast, strong, and worked hard to pack up my family and get us moved. Beds were dismantled and reassembled at our new home. We've just got out of boxes and am happy to say that everything made it in one piece. Thanks Isma, Chuy, and Nenah for making our move so easy! The were the best part of my move.

This review is a fair and accurate description of my recent experience using Shleppers to move from Brooklyn, NY to Miami, FL. It was fairly easy to get a quote and schedule pickup for April 14. The moving crew actually showed up 1 hour early and began to load my stuff on the truck. They did not have the proper tools (in this case an allen key) to dismantle my bed frame and couch. They decided to remove the phillips head screws on the bed frame (which are not meant to be removed). I protested, but they told me they "do this all the time" and reassembly would not be an issue. The legs on my couch and chaise lounge also required an allen key for removal, but I was told that they would pack these items with care to avoid damage, and again "this is a regular thing, we're professionals etc.."My items arrived in Miami on April 18 and I was in for a few surprises. The legs on my couch had broken off during transit. These could not be repaired and the couch was lost. My bedframe could not be reassembled and I ended up having to go to Home Depot to buy special hardware to modify and reinforce it so it would still be usable. It is worth noting that the delivery crew were not the same guys who originally picked up the items. The delivery team expressed frustration at the carelessness of the pick up team in not properly prepping my items for shipment.I got in touch with customer service to file a claim for damage compensation. The fine print in the contract states that unless you buy additional coverage, they only insure up to $0.60/lb of the damaged goods. I understand that, but to add further insult to injury; in order for you to receive compensation in an amount that is a small fraction of the cost of the damaged items...Shleppers requires claimants to sign a release form which legally prevents you from giving negative reviews of their services. That was the final straw for me. I have waived my rights to a small settlement in order to share the truth of my experience using Shleppers' services.I cannot in good conscience recommend using Shleppers.

Worst moving experience I've ever had. The movers rushed the drop off, because they "Don't get paid by the hour".  Reminding me multiple times of this. Secondly, my platform bed would not fit in the elevator, they suggested I throw it out (and I would have to dispose of it). It only had to go up 1 flight of stairs! I asked to at least try, they got it up half the flight and gave up. Leaving it up to my Father and I to dismantle it. They would not put it back together, even though that was in the contract. LASTLY, they rushed off, with one deciding it was a good idea to relieve himself right in front of my new building apartment. I complaint was made by a neighbor who took the attache photo. My new Super came by threatening to fine me for this.
