Customer service from moving companies is all over the place. After innumerable cross country, cross town, and local moves over the years, I’ve learned there’s rarely a consistency in quality when it comes to the packers, loaders and office staff — the overall customer service experience. Marrins was a nice surprise — hitting it in all the categories. I hope it wasn’t a fluke. I needed movers for a small move of some items to storage, so my review is based only on the moving, loading/unloading, as no packing was involved. There’s a three-hour minimum on a small move like I had, a reasonable rate for two people and the truck. My communications with the owner were pleasant as he went through the details and then followed up with a written confirmation. The two movers showed up when promised, were efficient, but also careful, in the loading/unloading process, and finished in less than the minimum time. It was one of the more painless moving experiences I’ve ever had. I wish I’d tried using Marrins in an earlier move. I could have avoided the movers-from-hell who should have their own spot in one of the levels of the Inferno; a place Marrins has gone out of their way to avoid.
Our move wasn’t the textbook kind—the first company we contacted (Lone Star) didn’t even answer our request for an estimate. A friend recommended Marrins and immediately they did everything right. Instead of being intimidated by our needs they came up with options, getting the job done and saving us money too. Their crews were punctual, polite, professional and hard-working. They communicated well and followed through. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them or to use them again!
Excellent experience. The following movers Andy, David, Austin, Zack worked very well, and took care to follow instructions. The first review that was left is not even close to my experience. They showed up after calling 2x to let me know what they were doing, and kept me informed throughout. The movers were very respectful, and used please and thank you. They made sure they only grabbed what I asked them to, and I was there to ensure it was done correctly. Worked hard the whole way through. Easy move, but they were 5 stars in my opinion. Biggest was the quick response on the quote. Much higher than what it actually cost me, but would rather have that than the quote being lower.

PLAN AHEAD!! is the #1 rule of all household moves, and it is especially important if you are moving on a holiday weekend like Memorial Day, Fourth of July or Thanksgiving. Here are some moving tips and extra challenges to consider when planning a move during a holiday weekend.
If you’re looking for help on moving day over a holiday weekend, you may want to ask friends and/or family well in advance. Many will already have plans that do not involve hauling heavy objects, especially during warm weather holidays. One of the most important moving tips is to ask early, before people make plans. If you do recruit friends and family to help you move, you may want to consider ordering food and hosting a combined holiday/thank you party once you’ve completed the move.
Especially during the early spring and summer months, the demand for professional moving companies is VERY high, and many are booked on holidays. Since the spring/summer season is also a period of high demand and low availability, you will want to check with your moving provider and schedule far in advance for a move during any holiday.
Moving day often brings the need for last-minute supplies. If moving yourself, stock up on items for every possible scenario including extra tape,boxes, snacks, bottled water, garbage bags, packing paper and furniture pads. Professional moving companies will have all of this on move day.
Plan your route accordingly in anticipation of road closures for parades, festivals and other events. Roads in some states may have travel restrictions for heavy loads. Check with your moving company, they will be able to share these kinds of traffic-related moving tips with you in advance.
It’s a sad reality, but with holiday weekends, come added chances for incidents involving drunk driving and the risk of accidents goes up every holiday. Plan to get your move done earlier in the day if possible.
If you had planned on staying in a hotel on the night before your move, book your room well in advance.
If you have any choice in planning your moving date, there is a strong case for not moving on a holiday weekend. If the only time that works falls on such a date, planning ahead can help avoid pitfalls and minimize the inconvenience.
Have a Safe & Happy Holiday Weekend!Read More
Summer months are the busiest time of the year for moving so it’s important that you act fast to schedule a professional move. Almost a third of all moves take place in the summer, peaking in June. The busiest times to move are normally near the end of the month and on weekends.
To reduce stress and ensure that you are able to book the date you want for your move, schedule your move mid-month or mid-week. You should begin contacting moving companies at least one to two months prior to your desired move date. Reputable moving companies quickly fill their calendars, and procrastinating may result in you missing your preferred move date.
Make sure to ask moving companies for referrals and testimonials. Check out our reviews on Yelp . Marrins Mooving provides free on-site moving estimates at no obligation. Even if you are thinking about handling the move yourself, schedule an on-site visit with us to see if hiring a professional mover may be a better option.
If you decide to go with another moving company, be sure to confirm that the mover has a federal motor carrier, or MC, number so you know your mover is a legitimate company. Verify their status by contacting the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration https://www.fmcsa.dot.gov/ , as well as The BBB to ensure their credibility.Read More
