My move was a revelation. Moving need not take all day or always go way over the estimate. My two movers, Matt and Aaron, were fast and also surprisingly funny as they chatted with us while moving all my big dumb, heavy furniture. I can order a pizza now and pretend like I'm going to start unpacking.

I had a fantastic moving experience with Bookstore Movers and would highly, highly recommend them.

They were very helpful before the move - Matt was very responsive via email, asking the right questions about how many items we have, giving us tips to save time/$).

When Craig and Aaron showed up, they were right on time (actually 8 minutes early). They were very pleasant during the entire experience - efficient, friendly, respectful. They packed the truck very carefully to avoid scratching any items and let me help (I mean, I'm paying for this...if there are little things I can do, I might as well).

They had quoted us the minimum price of $285 based on the number of items we told them we were moving. It ended up being $425 because we ended up having more than we thoughf, it took longer to drive between places and there was a snafoo with our new place about when we were moving in. So people should prepare that it really is just an estimate but I didn't mind at all - I know they couldn't have done it any faster and they were great.

Just go with them.

No chaos and nothing unexpected. Craig and Matt got arrived early, worked without breaks, and finished forty-five minutes under the estimate they gave me. Very polite, clever and capable gentlemen, they invited me to come by the bookstore for one of their wine and cheese events and I had a marvelous time. Bookstore Movers are a treasure!

I'm not sure why I cannot stay in one place more than a year or so. I've finally found a condo and hope to settle down a bit, but as supremely sucky as moving can be, I've had the supreme suckdom minimized significantly by bookstore movers, who have now moved me for my third time. Extremely relaxed, but still efficient and focused and fast. And I never thought I'd overhear movers discussing Baudelaire and Poe's Cask of Amontillado while taking my dresser down the stairs.

Gracias and I'll be by the bookstore for one of the wine and cheeses soon.

I had kind a stressful move last time and was fraught with anxieties in anticipation of all the things that could go wrong and complications that would arise.

I heard about bsm from a friend who used them and from emailing them for a quote to scheduling and then the move itself, the experience seemed about the opposite of my last move. Simple and efficient. Just what I wanted. Thanks Matt and Nik, I'll use you guys again.

The Bookstore Movers are great, and the owner, Matt, is just incredible. I had to get all my stuff moved and had very limited time to do it, and it was causing me to lose my mind. But I called Matt on the phone and he was the man with the plan and he put me at ease almost immediately. And on moving day him and his workers performed marvelously. Everyone was polite, everyone was friendly, everyone did their job and then some. It all went so smoothly it left me wishing there were Bookstore Movers for all areas of my life, that would just swoop in and take care of everything. Thanks guys!

The "Bookstore Movers" were recommended by a friend and I was extremely happy with them. They were on time, good communicators, careful with my stuff, hard workers, etc. The experience was very positive.

I realized last minute that I needed help with a move, and so hit Craigslist despite being somewhat nervous about just choosing some random mover there---mover horror stories do abound, after all. But in this case I really lucked out. Matt, the owner of Bookstore movers, is the bomb! He communicated well over email. He talked me through the process and what I'd have to do to prepare. The day of the move he showed up on time and worked efficiently and assiduously the whole time. He was careful with my possessions and is a miracle worker in truck-packing! I was freaking out that it wouldn't all fit, but he got it all in, and _securely_. Seriously, Matt, thanks again so much, and I'll definitely recommend you to all my friends!

More about Bookstore Movers

Bookstore Movers was started in 2005 as a way for fellow employees of an independent used bookstore on Capitol Hill to earn some additional money so that one day they might collectively have enough to purchase the bookstore when the current owner retires. We provide high-quality moving services by trustworthy and intelligent movers to the Washington, DC area. We do residential and commercial jobs, and are ready to help out with everything from pod loads/unloads, to studio apartments, to full service 4+ bedroom moves. We’ve done thousands of moves now and have thousands of very happy and usually pretty ecstatic customers (check out some of their testimonials here). We love what we do, and we are very good at it. In fact, we have been awarded the title of “Best DC Movers” by the Washington City Paper *five* years in a row now, for 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014. We were also recently featured in a piece by Washington Post Magazine, and in another by the local DC publication, Roll Call.
