1. I must say I never thought I was the type to search for a company and give them a review as I am just too lazy to do that kinda thing lol. But Real Movers took their customer service to a whole other level. I called them up, after searching around for the best prices, because I needed help moving as it was just me and my wife and all my friends were busy that weekend, legitimately haha. I lived outside of the Miami area and was moving further north to Altamonte Springs, big move but felt like it was nothing. It was raining super hard on the day of the big move and thought they were gonna cancel on us because it was pouring like crazy. Yet they showed up all smiles and hauled butts to get everything wrapped up and loaded into the truck. The move was a little bit longer than was estimaed but that was because of the rain, yet they managed to get it finished on time. That was very impressive in my book because the longer it takes the more they get paid but they unwrapped and unpacked quickly and got us set up in no time. My biggest fear during that time was having someone trying to rush and damage something but they were just as careful as they were quick. I highly recommend calling them if you need service in the surrounding area. You won't be disappointed.

I wanted to take a moment to write you and tell you about my outstanding moving experience using Real Movers Moving and Storage. I accepted a position at manager earlier this year and had to relocate from Raleigh, NC. And every interaction that I have had with your employees have been a very positive ones. Toby, my moving coordinator, was very professional and friendly and let me know what to expect the day of my house packing and the move. When the crew leader Hans came to my house to evaluate how much I had to move he was very friendly and professional as well we went over the contract in detail! Answered my questions and I now feel like I know everything from A to Z about moving lol.The day of packing up my house the loading crew Luke, Joe, Gorge and Hans moved with swift proficiency. They handled all of my items with care which I really appreciated. Moving can be stressful for them too and I was very impressed with how kind they were to my china case. The day of loading the crew showed up on time, loaded up my house in a matter of hours and were on their way. Delivery was in two days and I'm impressed all my glassware is unbroken very good!

I was recently tasked with finding an affordable moving company to help us relocate our small office from one side of Miami to the other. It wasn't a long distance kind of move, but nevertheless, we wanted the best service for the best price. Wasn't crazy amount of things in the office that we needed a huge mover but we needed great service due to the nice glass-topped furniture including a huge conference table. We called them up and they came and gave us an estimate and spoke about what they think is best the route in the move. On the day of our move, 2 guys arrived which I thought wouldn't be enough but they worked so smoothly and fast that it eve seemed like they sent one too many. These guys impressed us, they pulled down and wrapped up the office equipment and moved the conference table without damaging anything. That was an incredible feat, considering it's size and weight. What topped it off was the incredibly affordable rate they gave us. We will absolutely use Real Moving Movers again, and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for any type of move.

I just moved across town in Miami and the crew from Real Moving Movers were amazing! If it were up to me I'd probably blab about them for a couple of paragraphs. From pack up to completely moved in was within a day. When I called to set up the appointment it was pretty easy and the guy spoke to me about how I could "prepare" for them coming if it was possible, A three man team was sent as it was just a small 2 bedroom apartment. They got here a little early as the traffic was lighter than normal but I didn't mind since I was already waiting on them. The guys greeted me and my girlfriend with a smile and after the formal introductions went straight to wrapping up my furniture and fragile items, and moved me with no damage, no drama, and no issues at all. The guys were friendly, polite, and made me completely comfortable; they are pros and it shows. They even assembled my furniture so I can sleep in my new home immediately, so that was one less thing to worry about. Thanks for a speedy and great move.

These guys from Real Moving Movers and Storage were great! They were the definition of hard workers, they were quick, competent you could basically call them bumble bees. The staff at the main office understood my needs and decided that it would be in my best interest to do the estimate with an actual person coming out. This actually worked to my advantage as the quote they gave would be a bit higher as I didn't plan on prepacking or moving anything myself. We decided with my help and the things I were gonna pack and or move myself a 2 man team with one truck would be best, it was a 2 bedroom apartment but not a whole lot of stuff. The move took quicker than estimated, resulting in a lesser total yay me. I guess all my prepacking and moving the little things myself actually helped. Tip #1 hire these guys you won't be disappointed. Tip #2 prepack it will save you money and the guys actually appreciate it.

All of our things were delivered to us on time. I can't say enough about how well things went from start to finish. The head mover so very nice and professional, as were all the people I worked with at Interstates Vanlines. Actually, I consider it an honor to be your biggest cheerleader on a reference for others. Obviously, I have never done anything like this before. Besides the absolute professionalism your company showed from beginning to end, you were so polite while putting up with me. I know I am a detailed oriented person that requires full understanding of what I am involved with. You guys did well with this difficult old man. Thank you. I could and will recommend Public Moving and Storage to any and all. I am so thankful for the class A professionalism and performance of Interstates Vanlines. Should the need arise I would not hesitate to use you guys for relocation in the future.

I called them up to get an estimate and a nice gentleman, by my husband's account, came by the house to give us an estimate for the move. It was reasonable well within what we were hoping to spend so we went with them. And it worked out as by the end our total cost came in several hundred under the quote given. My husband got a call the day before to state that a driver would be calling us on the day so we know when to expect them. A crew of 3 showed up about 30 minutes early, which was fine by us as they had called, and got straight to work after introducing themselves. It was a 2 bed/ 1 bath with basement and shed storage move and it was professionally done within 6 hours. They were gentle with the furniture, and to top it off they assembled everything even the ones they didn't take apart. I would absolutely hire this moving company again if somehow we should move again.

I had been so depressed that I had to leave my hometown and nothing was going right for us. It seemed like the world was crashing down on me. I definitely felt the weight on my shoulders and the last thing I needed was another lousy moving company. So with that in mind I expected the worst. Was that what I received? No! Real made my move incredibly relaxing and stress free! I could really tell that they had heart and passion in what they did for a living. Not to mention the fact that they made me feel better by lifting my spirits and bringing a bit of positivity back into my then drull life. Also, they took good care of all of our heirlooms and items as they were very gentle with them. I would definitely havecto say that the experience was nothing short of incredible! Keep it up real! Ill never forget none of you!

After spending half the day on the phone and talking to 3 other moving companies that did nothing but stress me out, I was glad to settle on Interstates Vanlines. Our moving costs were covered by the company I was to work for, so I was not shopping on price, but their bid came in as the second lowest bid anyway. The sales agent was methodical and explained the ins and outs of long distance moving and explained everything and gave us solid assurances about our time-frame and the approximate costs. They told me according to my description it could take 3-4 hours of packing time and what I should do to speed up the process. They came in at 3 hours and 15 minutes and my wife insisted on running down to Dunkin Donuts and getting them some snacks. I had to make them wait 10 minutes as they were already done.

I am super glad I went with this company!!They were really careful with my stuff and worked really hard! These guys were sweating their butts off. They were going so fast I had to stand to the side the entire time because I was just getting in the way lol. We paid for 4 men for three hours for my 2 BR apartment, and the price they gave us included the truck, miles, fuel, everything all under a grand! You really cant beat that price anywhere. They finished within the estimated three hours and even wrapped up all my furniture with moving blankets. They do charge per roll of tape to wrap the furniture and went through about 7 rolls so I recommend buying your own if you can find it cheaper anywhere else. Don't even bother looking further just hire these guys for your move.
Tips & Advices
Yes, it’s best to empty drawers, wardrobes and chests before a move. Items always get knocked around a bit, and doors can fly open even if they’ve been taped. In fact, more often than not, movers will want to remove the drawers from a dresser--or disassemble the wardrobe to be more space-efficient.
Yes, it is customary to tip movers, but the amount varies widely. For full-service moves, a 5 percent tip is suggested, although, for extra service, some people go up to 10 percent . For small local movers, you can give each mover $10 for a few-hour job, or $20-$40 for jobs that take longer.
A bill of lading is the legal contract for the move. It provides a detailed receipt, in addition to a contract between the client and the mover. It authorizes the mover to transport the goods from one specific point to another, and it outlines the exact scope of services, with cost breakdown for those services. It also provides an itemized list of the inventory, and carrier liability protection for each declared item. Finally, it specifies the payment arrangement. Make sure to go over your itemized list extremely carefully before finalizing the paperwork--and get a copy of the full document. A good mover will go over everything on the bill of lading with the customer.
There are several items that moving companies will not move – those items will be listed on a document as “non-allowables.” These items typically fall in three categories: perishables, sentimental/personal items, and hazardous material. Perishables are food and plants. Sentimental/personal value is up to the client to decide, but usually includes jewelry, medical and dental records, personal paperwork, valuables and collectibles. Hazardous material is the tricky category, since it includes a lot of everyday items found in the garage, garden or kitchen. For example, cleaning liquids and pesticides both are considered non-allowable by many companies. Some go so far as to disallow nail polish and batteries.
A binding estimate means that the moving company cannot charge more than the stated amount, though they can lower the final bill if the scope of the job was smaller than expected. A non-binding moving estimate is more likely to wind up costing more than expected, since the movers can increase their rates for unforeseen variables like stairs, “long carry” and materials.
