Walsh Moving
I used them to move my whole four bedroom house and a truck. It is the only one I have used. The price was very reasonable and they did an excellent job.

These movers are great! You have to get pass the smack talking that goes on between them...its just part of the process! We had 6 movers, and each of them worked VERY hard. The fragile items were WELL packed, they assembled our furniture upon arrival, and they loaded and unloaded a full house PLUS dropped some unneeded furniture to a consignment shop along the way which was such a HUGE help! The drive time was about 1 hour long. Prior to the move, a young gentleman came over to give us an estimate- and when the final bill came after the move, it was $300 LESS than the estimate! Lucky us. I thought the guys handled our belongings with care - but I found that my daughter's slide was broken (it's plastic, Step 2 brand). She's outgrown it, but still. These movers were great, personable, and hard working. Thanks, men!!!

I'm on a tight budget so it was important to get an estimate that was as accurate as possible. Of course, it was also important to have quality movers. I reviewed multiple companies online and narrowed it down to 4. Walsh Moving was definitely the most thorough over the phone. The other companies just wanted to know how many rooms were in the house and provided the rate per hour, but didn't want to take the time to hear what furniture, appliances or anything else I needed moved. I was left trying to estimate how long I thought it would take them to move our things (I do not have the right experience or knowledge to do this). Thomas at Walsh Moving took a detailed account of what I needed moved and explained their pricing and estimate well. He emailed me the estimate so we could each have a record of all the details.

A day before the move, someone called me to confirm the appointment and move details. I appreciated this, as I was planning to call them later that day to do the same thing.

On the day of the move, James, Larry and Frank showed up on time. This was one more person than I was expecting and I asked how this would affect the price. James explained that although it would be more money per hour, it should take less time and the cost should even out or even be less in the long run. I understood but had a sneaking suspicion it could end up costing more if they dilly-dallied or if things just didn't go smooth.To the contrary, these guys really hustled! They were extremely efficient and got the job done right. They helped bring a couch over to my neighbors place, bring some items to the curb and took good care of all of our things. The final cost was $165 less than the estimate!

Our family used Walsh Moving & Storage for multiple moves around R. Beach. Their service is great. Recently, they helped us move from an upstairs apartment to a condo. The staff was friendly and efficient. They took good care of the fragile items by wrapping the TV and frames in blankets. They also took care of our potted plants. They placed items by following directions on marked boxes.We don't plan to move for a while...but will definitely recommend to others.

The Walsh Moving Company, specifically Larry and Cecil is as good as it gets! These guys came prepared, and knew exactly how to wrap each and every piece of furniture using blankets, huge rubber bands, and tape. They were strong, worked fast, and efficiently. Plus they were both nice and friendly. I would urge anyone who has a moving need to call Walsh!

They moved a mattress from Monterey Park to Long Beach. I had to reschedule 2x and they were very nice and flexible. They are wonderful to work with.
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.
