I moved to Arizona in May. Since I was moving across state lines, I requested the largest truck that Always Helpful Movers had. I told them if they would commit the largest truck to my move, I would commit to them. They promised me the truck (I have it in writing), I made my deposit. Next, I requested a final drop off at my new home on Monday. I was told that Monday wasnt possible because of their faith, they would be driving on Sunday. I understood and we changed it to a Saturday delivery.

The day of the move AHM showed up with a flat bed trailer. The foreman told me at first that they were using the big truck for a move in Leawood, then he back tracked and told me the large truck needed service and wouldnt be ready for two days (which was the day I wanted to move in the first place). John said the flat trailer had just as much space as the big truck and yet half of the workers pulled me aside and told me it was not (One of them even told me that all of my things werent going to fit and that they would have if theyd had the large truck.). I couldnt believe it as I watched them disassemble my furniture, creating a jigsaw puzzle out of my things. It took so much time to fit things in that they didnt finish the move that day.

I had to rent hotel rooms for all of my family that night and AHM took my things away to lock it up on their lot for the night. The next morning they showed up with the truck and a cargo van. They wanted to charge me for the additional vehicle and they took until 2 PM that day to finish loading the trucks. Due to their delays, I had tree solid days of driving ahead of me and only 2 days to do it in. Insult to injury, they were now going to deliver and unload my things on Sunday morning (ha!).

We got into Arizona on Saturday evening at 9:30 PM and they were at the house on Sunday morning at 9:00AM. They were supposed to hire help to unload the trucks once they got to AZ but it ended up that only the two guys who drove the vehicles unload all of my things because one of them laid down his wallet along the way (In a store when they were trying on Duck Dynasty tee shirts!) and they no longer had the money to hire the help to unpack me! They blocked my drive with the truck, neither myself or my sister had anything to eat or drink the entire day.

Additionally, Im still finding things are broken. They paid to fix the leg on a chair but my dining room table (from NFM design gallery had squiggly depressions in the top that can not be repaired short of sanding down the top by an 1/8 and then re-staining it). They got mad at me when I pointed out the broken chair leg, they even went so far as to insinuate that it was broken before it went on the trailer (until the found the piece laying in the trailer).

Lastly and worst yet, things are missing. Some sillytoiletriessome not so silly, my grandmothers silverware. AHM had told me they run a thrift shop. It never occurred to me that there might be a conflict in that but now that so many things have gone missing, I have to wonder what happened. Did they run out of room to the point that they removed some of my things? Ill never know but what I do know is that their 5 star ratings are a joke. Ive struggled with leaving them an honest review because of their purported Christian faith. But Im Christian and they did wrong by me. They took no care with me or my things and Id leave them negative stars if I could!

This moving company is horrific and I had the worst experience of my life, having them move me from one city to another in the state of missouri. The were 2 hours and 15 mins late and they were late due to insignificant reasons. The company did not have their trucks ready for departure, so due to that they were 2 hours and 15 minutes late. When they finally arrived, it took them 3 and 1/2 hours to load a one bath and one bedroom apartment with all of the boxes packed. They only sent two men out to load and unload, one man loaded the entire truck and then the second man came and then re-loaded the entire truck. They were very slow loading the truck, EXTREMELY slow. I informed them multiple time that I had a deadline to meet to a storage unit.I even went so far and called the owner John and informed him of the lateness and the slowness of his men and he and his movers suggested instead of me watching them load my belongings into the truck they suggested that I drive down and dont finish watching them load which I thought was absurbed, when I did not know either of these men and I did not trust them nor the company or the owner. they were suppossed to be a Christian company that weren't suppossed to cuss, but yet they were cussing the entire time. It took them over 6 hours to drive down and reach their destination and due to their lateness and slowness, they missed two different appointments for a storage unit. The next day I had to move my furniture myself into a storage unit, because they just loaded ont another truck. The new storage unit I had to move to ended up costing me an extra $50.00 a month. Once I finally reached the owner discuss the move with him, he stated to me that the reason that they missed the storage was my fault and that they did me a favor by moving me and I SHOULD be grateful, which he did nothing to try to compensate me. ThIS COMPANY IS HORRIBLE, THE WORST MOVING COMPANY EVER. THEY ARE LIARS, UNTRUSTWORTHY AND NOT CHRISTIANS AT ALL IN MY OPINION. THEY ARE MONEY HUNGRY INDIVIDUALS WHO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF WOMEN AND WILL TRY TO OVER-CHARGE YOU AND HORRIBLE PEOPLE. I WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND THEM AND I SUGGEST YOU NEVER TRY THEM. THEY ARE HORRIBLE COMPANIES AND THEIR GOOD REVIEWS ARE NOT TRUE AT ALL.

I needed to move a few pieces of furniture to make room for new furniture that was being delivered on short notice.

Everyone was pleasant, professional. The customer service the best.

I highly recommend them

My wife & I recently moved & used John Horner & his Always Helpful Moving company. Our last move was 27 years so we didn't really know what to expect. I saw the Christian advertisement & knew that was the way we wanted to go. It is so hard to find people you can trust these days. John & his crew made our move a joy & a delight. He suggested we have his crews pack items prior to the move. This was a lifesaver. His crew is great. Christian music playing. Smiles on their faces even when we put something in the wrong spot & had to move it again. I would recommend them to my mother.

Always Helpful Movers assisted me in loading and unloading my belongings from a townhome in Overland Park, KS and then delivered them to 2 different locations: one in Wichita, KS and the other location of Claflin, KS. Upon loading, the movers wrapped all mirrors and were very prompt in the loading and unloading process.

Always Helpful Movers were absolutely fantastic. They were not only professional in their service but they were also very polite and quite actually a joy to be around. The were very prompt in their work, gentle with my belongings, and very organized. I would refer these movers to anyone and everyone!

I had Always Helpful Movers move a nice set of oak dining room furniture and two refrigerators. They were working in tight quarters in my small eat in kitchen and they were very impressive! Very professional and easy to work with
