My girlfriend moved cross country. The moving company NorthStar is a division of Moishe's. The price was right but the service was terrible. They damaged her things during the move and then when the insurance OneBeacon America Insurance denied the replacement value on the insuranced items NorthStar made her sign an agreement saying that she would not tell on them if she wanted any help to fix the damaged items (they gave her very little money for all of her aggravation). I did not sign the argeement. She had an insurance policy on the rug for $3000 and OneBeacon is saying that she packed the rug herself -- hard to believe since the rug is 10 ft x 14 ft and takes two people to roll it up and then wrap it in plastic. The customer service people never returned phone calls or emails she had to constantly call them to finally get any help. Be careful of NorthStar and make them wait until you have uppacked every item and reviewed it. Moving is not fun and they made the situation worse.

I never hired a moving company before. I checked online, read the reviews from many sites, (Berkeley Parents Network, Yelp, etc) North Star moving came highly recommended and it all turns out to be true.

Finding a mover was a headache the last time I moved, so I wasn?t looking forward to it this time, a co-worker of my neighbor used Northstar and said they were very good, so I called, was impressed with their service over the phone, and I was blown away on the day of the move. They were quick and very friendly, even my dog liked them ? he parked himself on one of their blankets so they just let him keep it for the day. They moved our two bedroom townhouse across town with not a thing broken. I don?t plan on moving again anytime soon (just thinking of packing everything again can trigger a panic attack?) but when I do, I know who to call.

Belle, who took my reservation, was extremely nice. It was a good start. And then a man from the dispatch office called a day before to make sure I am ready for the move and ask if I have any last minute requests or questions. I was even happier with my choice of movers at that point. And On the day of the move, I knew I really did choose the right company: they were courteous, quick and vary careful when handling my furniture. A great moving experience.

Sean and his crew were extremely professional and worked like soldiers to make sure all my belonging were safely packed and transferred to my new apartment. Throughout the move they were kind, respectful and marvelous in every way possible. They gave me a great peaceful start at my new place and it??s greatly appreciated.

I used Northstar moving company for my local move here in southern CA. I had a very good experience starting with the sales person (Ted Tindall) all the way to the movers and operations personnel. The moving team arrived on time and pakced up eveything from my 3 bed room townhome and delivered it to my new home and set everything up within the first 3 hours. In addition, they delivered my old refrigerator to my friend and old washer and dryer to a temple. The entire team of three people were very accommodating, caring and professional. When they say "no hidden charges", they really mean it. I got charged for exactly what they quoted as hourly charges. I will recommend them to anyone in a heartbeat!

they are simply phenomenal. my movers were jerry mendoza and ran and they had me out of my apartment and into my new place in 3 hours flat. and not a single scratch on any of my precious antique furniture (which i was very worried about) and not a single smudge on my white linen couch. i have moved many times and this was definitely the best move. i will not hesitate to call northstar if i ever have to move again.

a friend of mine recommended north star to me when we got ready to move. he used north star 5 years ago and was very pleased with their service. apparently things have not changed. i, likewise, found north star being an excellent mover to work with.i especially liked their e-mail communication with everything clearly spelled out. i tried an estimate with another outfit and was not sure what i got. we scheduled a sunday move b/c being afraid of the infamous I-405 traffic congestion for a 90-mile move. they granted me my first- choice date and the move was completed within my personal estimated time.and last but not least, my wife and i liked the moving crew very much. they were very courteous, conscientious and above all worked hard. they did some extra things w/o complaining. our move was completed w/o a hitch.like the friend who recommended north star to me, i would definitely do the same in the future.

I did a residential from California to Arizona. They arrived on time and packed everything with great care and delivered on time when they promised. The crew was polite and very professional. I'd did a lot research on movers and they are head and shoulder above any other movers; price or service wise! I highly recommend them.

I did a residential move in Southern California. They showed up a few minutes early and got right to work! The crew was polite and very careful with my furniture and my new wood flooring. I was pleased with the entire experience and would definitely use NorthStar again. The price was very reasonable for the service I received as well. Everything went smoothly, including scheduling with the company and answering all my questions and concerns. Great!!

Do NOT believe the hype. The people here are extremely personable, but they missed the target delivery, and have said that they won't be able to deliver until 2.5 weeks later.... They forgot about my move! Literally. I called to check up on my stuff about a week before the due date and was assured that it was on its way...but alas, that was not the case. So for everyday it's late, I get a $40 discount. It's really not worth it because you plan to move in and get things done, and they can't even guarantee it will get here when they say it will. Go with a bigger and more trusted name if you are doing an out of state move.

My experience with NorthStar started with a clear quote with itemized cost. And it's exactly what I paid at the end with no hidden cost or extra charge.

On the moving and delivery day, Oscar and the crew are courteous, professional and efficient. They arrived on time, protected my furniture with great care and finished the job quicker than I expected.

The closest street to my new apartment's entrance is a no-parking zone, the movers were willing to park on a side street and carried the items for extra distance with no complaints.

I was moving from northern CA to southern CA. And among all the moving companies (including the more well-known big names) I inquired, NorthStar is the only one that offered second day delivery. And they kept their promise. It made the move so much easier. They are also very responsive and kept me informed along the way of all the information I needed.

My whole experience with NorthStar was an absolute delight. Transitions in life could be emotional, and what NorthStar added was a truly "moving" experience. I will definitely pick them the next time I move.

I had a local move within the City. They came and moved me from the third floor (stairs only - no elevator). They showed up on time, were pleasant, and actually moved weights (ie, pumping iron weights) without complaint. Didn't charge a dime extra. I would use them again, and recommend them when someone says they're moving.

This is to thank Northstar and its workers for moving our stuff successfully from the storage area to our new house. We were impressed by the professionalism displayed by the team of Jaime, Pablo, Tal and Nir. They worked hard despite the inclemency of the wet weather. Their labor was much appreciated.

Yesterday, December 5, I moved from Palo Alto to San Francisco. Never having moved such a volume of possesions before, I was anticipating a nightmare of a day. But the two gentlemen NorthStar sent to assist me in this endeavor, Craig and Liron, made all the difference. Besides being extremely careful with everything (both my furniture and the two apartments) they were efficeint, professional, polite, and all around a pleasure to work with. I could not have asked for a better team.

NorthStar did an outstanding job of packing and moving my things. Quite frankly I was expecting some things to be broken. However, to my surprise not one thing was broken and everything went as smooth as could be expected. I had approximately 15,000 lbs. of items to move. I am very impressed with NorthStar and I would not hesitate to utilize them again for my next move. All of the young men who assisted in packing and loading were very hard working and polite.

About a month ago, on Sep 12, we hired NorthStar Moving to move our belongings from our house in Van Nuys to the Highway Storage place in Santa Clara.
We would like to express our sincere thanks and appreciation for the professional work that was carried out by NorthStar team of workers. In particular, we would like to mention the four NorthStar workers: Roy Ashual, Moshiko Haziza, Guillermo Molise and Roberto Mendoza for their very dedicated service.
Besides being good natured and helpful, they worked very well and took good care of our personal effects. We would definitely refer them and NorthStar Moving to any of our friends who are looking for a good moving company.

I wanted to thank the Northstar Moving group for a fabulous job. We hired Northstar Moving on August 4th to move us out of two storage units and where we were staying to our new home in Los Angeles. I had gone through surgery on the 2nd and was in no condition to move around a lot. The Northstar Moving team was great. I slept in while my husband met them at the first pick-up point. Then they came to the 2nd and that is where I met them. When we arrived at the new house they found something for me to sit on and I set in one place in the garage telling them which room the items went. They were great. They had wonderful personalities; I have never had so much fun moving (even if I was in some pain).
Northstar thank you again for the great team and customer service.

My family and I would like to extend all of our gratitude to Ram, Gonen, and Yoni for a very successful moving experience. Our move from the San Francisco Bay area down to San Diego could not have gone any smoother. First, we wish to express our gratitude to Ram for all of his courteous and helpful advice. The information that he provided was central to us choosing Northstar to do our move. He was always honest and upfront with what the charges would be and the timetable for the move. The movers came exactly when promised, delivered all of our belongings on the exact date that we wanted, and did an excellent job. Both Gonen Shlomo and Yoni Simmons were very efficient, friendly and professional. Indeed, they went the extra mile to make sure that all of our belongings were packed carefully and efficiently. When it appeared that there was too much stuff for them to handle alone, they quickly called for extra help. Gonen and Yoni were so careful in wrapping the furniture and all of our fragile items that ABSOLUTELY NOTHING WAS BROKEN OR DAMAGED. I would use them again, without hesitation. Gonen and Yoni deserve our highest compliments. Indeed, the whole Northstar team, with Ram as the point person gave us excellent service at very reasonable rates. Ram's immediate attention to all of our concerns made the whole moving experience a lot less stressful. I know that if we ever need to move again, I will call on Northstar without hestitation. We will recommend Northstar to our friends.

I wanted to drop a note to thank NorthStar for the wonderful job they did in moving me. This was the first time I have ever used a moving company and what a pleasant surprise it was. Because of the delay in getting my notifications from our Homeowner's Association regarding the date I was required to move and from the construction company regarding the move back date, I realized that I was rushing them to do everything from estimates to scheduling the move date, out as well as back into my home. NorthStar's flexibility and extra efforts on my behalf were much appreciated. I have no hesitation in recommending NorthStar to any of my friends and neighbors.

This review comes in praise of NorthStar's crew, who moved a partial load of household goods for us on August 14, 2007. These men were prompt, courteous, and careful, and they were remarkably efficient. Our load included a piano which had to be moved up into the second-floor living area of our home--NorthStar's team planned carefully and executed the lift with remarkable strength and care. We have just now completed unpacking, and we have detected no damage to any of our goods! We completed the first phase of this move a few weeks ago, with another mover. That move was with an undersize truck and inadequate provisioning, and it cost nearly double the estimate. This previous disastrous experience helped us to appreciate the quality of the service we received from NorthStar. We will recommend NorthStar to our friends and neighbors. Thnaks for an excellent job!

The three movers on the NorthStar crew (crew chief Omri, Jose and Doron) arrived in a timely fashion and proceeded to work diligently throughout the day at my house. They were kind, smart, motivated, and my neighbors and I enjoyed having them there. I also thought they took great care and pride in providing me excellent moving services. Coincidently, a good friend is moving his home from Brentwood to Berkeley and happened to ask me if I could refer him to a moving company. I immediately suggested NorthStar based on my positive experience with Joe, the moving crew and the entire moving experience. I know a lot of customers are quick to write and complain when things do not go well, and I am not sure if people write to say "thanks, things went well," but my experience with NorthStar was "Thanks, things went very well."

NorthStar moved my furniture, furnishings and belongings within San Francisco on August 13 ad 14, 2007. I want to take this opportunity to commend this company on its efficiency and quality of work. Too often, I imagine that they hear nothing but complaints but it seems appropriate to give a commendation when earned. The young men who came to do the work, Gonen, Lior, Shai and David were courteous, efficient and very careful in their work. They did an excellent job. I would not hesitate to recommend NorthStar to others who may need moving and storage services.

On July 2, NorthStar moved my belongings from Berkeley to Albany on one of the hottest days of the season. They were remarkably friendly, swift, cheerful and hard working. This was my second move with NorthStar, as I used their company in April to move my business from San Jose to San Mateo. This former move utilized 4 men and 2 trucks. The individuals involved, (sorry I don't remember their names) were also very hard working and efficient. Any future moves or referrals asked of me, will be directed to NorthStar.

On July 2, NorthStar moved my belongings from Berkeley to Albany on one of the hottest days of the season. They were remarkably friendly, swift, cheerful and hard working. This was my second move with NorthStar, as I used their company in April to move my business from San Jose to San Mateo. This former move utilized 4 men and 2 trucks. The individuals involved, (sorry I don't remember their names) were also very hard working and efficient. Any future moves or referrals asked of me, will be directed to NorthStar.

I take great pleasure in saying very sincerely "Thank You" for the very professional job NorthStar did in moving my entire household from San Francisco California to Fremont California. I would also like to express my profound respect for the quality of work your two emloyees, Eric Aldana and Jose Samoya accomplished during this move. Each and every piece of furniture and article was handled with the utmost care and consideration. I have recommended your moving company with much enthusiasm so that other homeowners can also benefit from a moving company which from my personal experience I believe to be one of the best in the industry. Kindly convey my appreciation to both Eric Aldana and Jose Samayoa. Best personal regards and thank you for your professional courtesy during the entire move.

I am writing this letter to let you know that you have a group of employees who are absolutely outstanding. Starting with the first person we spoke to who arranged our move, through the men sent to do the actual moving, all were exemplary. The group of men who packed and delivered our goods were wonderful. They were absolutely professional in the way they handled our possessions, wrapping everything so very carefully that we did not have one item broken. Both my wife and I were impressed, not only with their ability to do all the things that was necessary to get the move done, but especially with their attitude. Not one complaint; not one gripe; nothing but absolute professionalism. Thank you very much.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Yohai, the senior mover and his crew for the outstanding work they performed on the move of the Wade Family on May 14th and 15th. Your company should be proud of the workmanship of this crew.

We didn't have a good experience with Northstar. For starters none of the movers spoke English well enough for us to communicate effectively. We kept getting nods but then they didn't do what we asked. The "lead" mover had an attitude and got angry if you questioned what they were doing. We felt like we had to tiptoe around and be nice so they didn't damage our things. They weren't very careful with our more valuable pieces, even after we emphasized that they be careful. We went through the house at move-in and asked that they be careful with the hardwood floors. But they were more interested in macho displays than being careful. Our floors were gouged in several places because they didn't use anything to protect the floors while unwrapping the furniture, which they did in a fast fury. We would have preferred to preserve our floors rather than saving the time it would have taken to carefully unwrap the furniture. Also, none of them seemed physically well suited to being movers and didn't seem to have a good handle on maneuvering the furniture. They charged a rediculous amount for "supplies" considering they only had to provide tape and elastic wrap. "Supplies" amounted to 30% of the bill! We also later found items that they charged for that should have been free, according to the contract. Overall it was a bad experience. We would never use them again.

Pros: On time, Furniture was securely wrapped

Cons: Bad Attitude, Couldn't communicate well, Damage done to home!

My name is Myra Wilson and I just wanted to send an email letting you know how satisfied I was with my recent move. We moved on May 13th (it was mother?s day) and the 3 movers we had were outstanding! I would highly recommend your company to others and will definitely use you again on my next move. Our representative was also very helpful and polite, her name was Bell. She sent a thank you note with a magnate, which I have on our fridge so I know where to go next time. Thank you so much for making our move a lot easier. Thanks again!!

Several weeks ago when we first looked into movers , we were apprehensive about moving companies. The though of entrusting our personal belongings to complete strangers made us nervous. To ease our fears, we checked the rating of each mover online. As NorthStar had a good rating, offered a good rate, and were very helpful when we called with questions, we reserved their services. When the movers arrived we were pleasantly surprised, they were fast, efficient and professional, and were willing to answer any questions we had. We have several friends moving in the next few months and we will definitely recommend NorthStar.

They scheduled a morning pick-up time, and they were supposed to arrive between 7-10am. They called the night before to change to an afternoon pickup with the window starting at noon and when called at 3pm stated they would arrive between 4:15 and 5pm. They didn't arrive until after 6pm. Needless to say, this caused me to miss a whole day of work and an evening commitment. We were very concerned about coordinating the arrival of our furniture since this was an out of state move and we needed to be there to receive the furniture or arrange for someone else to be there. At first, they gave us a 2-14 day window, but that our stuff would likely arrive within 3-7 days. We were instructed to call closer to the date for a better idea of our delivery date. We might as well have programmed the number into our speed dial. It started with "call closer to your move", then "when the movers pick-up your stuff, they will have a better idea", then "when we call you back with the final cost in a two days we should have a better idea" (they didn't call until day 5), then "your delivery will not take place in the next two days, call back in two days and we should have a better idea." Well it is currently day 11 and they called to tell us that our stuff was finally loaded onto a truck today and that it will be three days late, arriving on day 17. Mind you this is a move from CA to WA in the summer, so no inclement weather or other unforeseen difficulties for the movers. After talking to three different people for a few hours, they are now promising to be only 2 days late. This company simply did not make the effort to have our delivery take place within the delivery window as our stuff was only loaded onto a truck at day 11 and we were only informed of the late delivery the day the truck was loaded. Very disappointing.

Cons: Lack of communciation and information. Missed delivery window. Poor service.
