I have used Nick's numerous times moving from different residences (i.e., condo (with and without elevator) & home) and they have done an excellent job each time. I would highly recommend them for any type of move. Most recently, they assisted with moving large furniture within our home and were great and eager to place the furniture perfectly.

Pros: Professional, Reasonable Cost, Reliable, Efficient, Friendly

We had Nick's move a couch from the 2nd floor--via hoisting through a window.
They were very professional and left everything the way it was when they came in. The were such a better deal than Titan.
We will definitely use them again in the future.

When you're moving, you want to deal with movers who exude confidence without being abrupt or condescending. The scheduling staff and the moving staff from Nick's were personable and candid. The moving staff were polite, apologized for being late at the start, promised to make it up at the drop-off end. And they did. I've moved about 30 times (yes, I'm old) and Nick's movers are just about the best I have had.

Cons: Started 30 min. late, but made it up later.

My experience with Nick's was great! I selected Nick's because my brother used them and had a great move. I believed my brother more than I believed the recent web reviews.

I moved from a studio apartment in East Somerville to a one bedroom apartment in West Somerville in December. I hate winter moves, and I especially hate December moves because it's hard to round-up friends to help. However, I pulled it off.

My East Somerville apartment was a shoebox--my furniture was jammed into that place. If you could fit a box in that apartment, there was a box. In short, my East Somerville apartment was small and nasty.

The crew was GREAT! Ben told me that my movers would be there at 9:00am, ready to work. Within 45 minutes, they had all the boxes loaded--they carried the boxes two and three at a time! They quickly removed my heavy oak book cases and my wardrobe in no time flat. They took apart my bed and moved that, too. They swept the junk that was under my bed into a pile in the corner, as instructed, so that I could deal with it later. They did everything right.

Fifteen minutes after I arrived (by bus) at the new place, they arrived and were busy moving my stuff in. I had post-it notes set-up in my new apartment, for where I wanted them to put my things. Everything was placed where I wanted it to go. The bed was set-up. The furniture arrived, none the worse for wear. They set-up my funky bed. I was moved in less than three hours--that was fast!

According to my movers, I had a lot to do with the fact that my move was fast and went way under budget. The first thing I did right was I spent the time to think through the process. I started planning the move when I was sure I was going to move, but I didn't know when. So, I had taken the time to go through my things and to throw out, sell or give away things I no longer wanted. I carefully packed my things, following the packing advise found on multiple web sites. ISecondly, I moved all my artwork, my china and other fragile or expensive items myself and I put them away. Thirdly, I pre-moved some of my clothes and set-up a basic kitchen. This made life much easier. Fourthly, I put post-it labels in the new place showing where I wanted items to go.

I did not experience any of the problems the other reviewers did with this company. I worked with my movers and I had a successful and reasonably stress free move.

BTW, a week after the move, I unpacked all but one box and gave away my used moving boxes.

Do not use this company under any circumstances. They did my move in late August. Lets see, first they drove over my neighbors yard and proceeded to get in a verbal argument with said neighbors. Then they backed into the other neighbors car. Then they managed to scratch at least 5 pieces of furniture and tear open both arms of my brand new couch. After at least 7 phone calls with the manager Dave, he explained that they don't actually have any insurance and can't even cover the damage they caused. I filed a report with the Better Business Bureau which was unable to solicit a response from them after 2 attempts. Upon further research, i found at least 8 similiar unanswered complaints on the BBB site. Do yourself a favor and stay away!

September 09 move

They price was okay, but more than I wanted to pay (and I booked them last minute, so I didn't have much of a choice).

Why did it take 5 guys to move a single womans apartment 3 miles 6.5 hrs? I was being charged an hourly rate and boy do they milk that. I had to run an errand and my roommates said that they were bringing up one couch cushion at a time and were hanging around joking and laughing among themselves. I really feel I was taken advantage of.

After being quoted a price over the phone by Ben and leaving a deposit I immediately began noticing red flags with these crooks.
First, my non refundable deposit was not run once, but twice, and when I called their office to inform them of this I was treated as though I had made some sort of mistake, zero marks for people skills. I then assured them of their error ( i am a CPA ) and when I asked to be refunded I was met with a haggling of sorts, i.e, "well, we're gonna be there in a few days anyway, why don't we just credit it towards your final bill." sort of line. Again, very unfriendly, uneducated sounding office person with some airy welshman with an accent acting as the manager. I was stressed out as was and just didn't have the energy to argue. During this period NICKS was supposed to drop me some supplies so that I could prep my house for the move, I asked for Pads, wrapping paper, some bubble wrap, tape and various boxes. All of which I was encouraged to get from them by them, and all of which I was assured would arrive at the latest, 5 days before my move, all of which turned out to be LIES. Nothing showed up, I called, I called I called and was met with hostility from two of the office people and some very lame excuses from the rummy welsh manager,
( I know we are in a recession, but that doesn't explain why my moving supplies aren't in my home 2 days before my move.) needless to say, they never arrived. So, the day of my move, My four movers was reduced to 2 movers,
(some how my rate only went down 30 bucks though) one spoke no english and clearly had no prior knowledge of moving, he broke almost everything he touched, the other, I am fairly certain was using coke in my bathroom and threw up several times during my move, so, after all my things get trashed, lost and most certainly pillaged, i get my bill. i wasn't surprised to see i wasn't credited for my double deposit, and was actually billed for the supplies i never got. AMAZING!
I contested the bill, was met with more hostility by my druggie mover, ( was also strong armed for a tip and told to "go to an ATM I have no doubt my mover was using druugs") and spent 2 hours waiting to speak with someone who could "adjust" my balance. In the end, what was supposed to be a 5 hour venture from start to finished turned into a 5 day odyssey complete with liars junkies, and a thieef. Most of my items were damaged, some lost or stolen, and my original 700 dollar move ended up costing me an estimated 2500 plus, ( that includes damages, and time spent haggeling with these crooks.
Dave, Eric, Ben, Richie and Henrey you ought to be asshamed.

Henry and Pedro were OUTSTANDING. It was a hot day in August and they had many many stairs to climb, but they did it! They arrived EARLY (how often does THAT happen?!?) and were 100% courteous and communicative not only with me but with each other. They wrapped everything up efficiently and handled it all with extreme care, and even offered tips about unpacking, maintenance, and future furniture purchases! I couldn't recommend them enough. They made a challenging process so much better. Thanks guys!

Rich, Jeff and Ross moved a lot of furniture to three separate locations and none of them had easy staircases to navigate. Everything went quick, smooth and all of our furniture and boxes arrived in the same condition as when we left.

I just moved from Central sq. in Cambridge to Davis Sq. in Somerville. Nick's sent me two great movers, Bob and Jeff they cleared out my one bedroom apartment in less than an hour from the second floor! In the end these guys were polite, careful, and cheaper than they estimated over the phone. I have heard some horror stories about friends moving experiences, but now I will just tell them to use Nick's and they will have no worries!

Thank you so much to Richie, Jon and Jeff ! I called them last minute as I realized i could not move my stuff on my own. Their office took my info and these guys were at my doorstep two hours later. It was freezing that day but these guys just laughed it off and continued to climb up and down my third-floor staircase as if it were fun to them. They put everything together for me at the new place, and the whole thing was done in three hours. I couldn't tip them much so I thought id mention them by name. It was a great experience. I urge folks who are moving to ask for these guys !

Horrible service. Way over priced.

In 2003 my wife and I hired this company to help us move into a second level of a two family house. My wife and I helped and we moved most (90%) of the small boxes ourselves. The two movers slowly moved a medium sized couch for two hours in which they broke a banister in the process. In the end I had to show them which way they should bring the couch in.

They admitted to breaking the banister and then my landlord had to chase them down to have it repaired (threatened small claims suit). They charged me $700 total for 4 hours of work....which half was spent trying to wedge a couch up the wrong way. The additional money they charged (initial quote was $200) was for large objects..... that I didn't think warranted the extra fee.

In the end... horrible service... horrible price. Avoid this company at all cost....

Worst moving company. They stole several things including money. Also broke many valuable items. Got nowhere with phone calls. Had to file police report. DO NOT USE
Took company to court., they didn't show up. Company was founded default and ordered to pay me my money. The company wrote 4 checks in with 3 of them bounced. I went to the office to discuss this. I was told to get the &%$# out of here. So now it is back to court.

They also showed up extremely late, broke a number of items and overcharged us big time (at least an hour more than they spent moving us). When we tried to complain, they simply stopped taking our calls.

Ouch. Don't lend moving crew any tools during the job -- or show them where tools are kept. They made off with my fancy power drill and the charger!!!! Wanted to stop payment on the check but they cashed it immediately. Also, tons of breakage. Really a bad experience.

Hired Nick's to assist with packing and moving. Packing went well, but on the day of the move, they showed up 90 minutes late. They damaged my apartment building sprinkler system, scratched my furniture beyond repair, and broke all of my dishes and glassware. And then! They tried to overcharge me.
Please, please beware of this company. They are extremely shady and diffcult to deal with. It was only at the threat of a legal issue did I get them to pay for the damaged furniture. Nick himself kept hanging up the phone. SHADY!!!

I used Nick's Moving a little less than a year ago and they were great in everyway. It was a local move (Fenway to Brookline) and at every step the service was polite, efficient, timely and careful. Other moving companies were rude and uninterested and barely seemed to care about taking care of my things. Nicks, however, was very attentive, answered all of my questions, dropped of boxes and plenty of packing material and, more importantly, asked me all the right questions to make sure they had the information they needed. As a result, my move turned out perfectly and with a minimum of headaches. I also found their rates to be very competitive and, actually, beat out a majority of the other companies I had priced. As a result, I'm using them again for another local move within Brookline and, as far as I can tell, the level of service hasn't changed a bit.

I cannot recommend this company enough. They are awesome.
