I just moved last week and hired 123 Moving and Storage. They did an amazing job. Very professional and proficient. My furniture and electronics were wrapped up like a baby. Everything arrived at my new location in perfect condition. I won’t use another moving company now that I know about them.

"An Excellent Experience"

We’vd used 123 Moving for our last THREE moves and have had a wonderful experience each time. Working with the office on the moving quote and logistics feels very fair and honest – they’re great. And then the movers themselves are prompt, courteous and exceptionally professional. We never get as much packed up as we said we would, and they jump right in and have the supplies on hand to help out. You of course have to pay for their time to help with packing up, but these guys are fast! (and super careful). And at the new house, even though they’re clearly exhausted, they take the time to set up everything just as you want it. Honestly, we have been blown away by how well this company is managed. They’ve made each move SO much less stressful.

I hate moving. But they made the experience palatable. I got estimates from seven other companies, moving and storage, and they had the best rate. On the day of the move the truck showed up and two nice guys came and quickly and efficiently loaded everything up and dropped it off in storage. I got a nice call later that day that everything was safe and sound.

This company is fantastic. You should first know that I am usually very critical about services rendered so that if there’s a problem I would let you know. But in this case I must say that Jason did such a fantastic job on an urgent move that I needed in Santa Monica that it deserves more than five stars. I had to get furniture and a vehicle moved from across the country. Jason was incredibly professional and very easy to work with. He was totally responsive whenever I called or emailed him. He made sure that my move was handled with great professional care. He was reliable and showed up on time and made the final delivery timely and in a very professional manner as well. It’s great when you can find people like him in today’s world.

I moved my one bedroom apartment to another in the same city. The movers not only helped me move all of the large items, but they also helped me pack all of the strange shaped things. The price was reasonable and the staff was quick and helpful.

I needed help moving out of my parent’s place into a 2 bedroom apartment and called these guys. They sent over 2 movers and spent about 4 hours to move me from the valley to the city with no problems. Everything went pretty smooth and they were very efficient. This company is very professional and handles their moves with care. If you’re looking for movers, this is the place to go hands down!
