Just Used Them for a local move from Shrewsbury to Boston – The muscle men who came to move me were awesome. They came uniformed in polos with their muscles out to ))))) here! And who doesn't want their movers to show up in polo shirts - even if it is 45 degrees out! I was so impressed with my monster movers - they did my whole move in 5 hours so the total was around $600. The girl that booked my move was Sarah and she said it was going to be about $756 so I was pretty happy that it was less. I tipped the movers $20 each and was still under budget. The Monster Movers I used were from Boston - Charlestown so I hope this is the same company. I didn't see Monster Movers in Boston as an option.
They moved my antique furniture without a scratch – Let me start by telling you that I have a housefull of antiques that I moved to Michigan years ago. The last movers I used were part of a larger company called Atlas. They put two scratches in a mans wardrobe that I had to pay a furniture repair person to fix. I also had to fix a curved glass peice from my china cabinet. That being said, I was extremely nervous to do the move back to Worcester expecially at my age (71). Anyhow, we hired the Monster Movers mainly because they provided us with references from local companies in Worcester and Ann Arbor with whom they moved antiques and artwork for. They came weeks before the actual move and measured the peices to build crates for the artwork. It was a little pricey but I guess the rates have gotten higher than they were twenty years ago. The move went well. We paid extra for a door to door moving service that guaranteed our furniture in Massachusetts within 2 days. Both trucks arrived together and on time. At the offload they sent 3 more fellows who were helpful and made things go a lot faster. They did not charge us for the extra three men because it was included in the line haul amount that we agreed to in Michigan. There was not a single scratch or bump or rub on anything. Well, our sofa had a bit of dust from the truck because the saran wrap rubbed off while it was in transit but it was an easy cleanup.
**BEWARE** OF THE MONSTERS OF MOVERS!!!!! – Hmm where do I begin...as an ex employer for this CROOKED company MONSTER MOVERS.I have witnessed the following things, !!!COSTUMERS BEWARE!!! When I first began I told him I had no licence and only wanted to work as a mover helper Bill quickly munipulated me into driving his trucks. To date none of his driver's have ANY CDL OR LICENCE'S PERIOD! I started noticing how Bill's company wasn't run legit, his paper work is non existent and claimed his computer was wiped out so he just wings it, also had me and other employers working up to 90 hours a week barley able to see my family.And had issues every week with my checks as far as him not paying me fully and or not at all, making make me wait days after pay day for my money. Also made us late to customers homes frequently due to his lack of attention to his company sent us out with no directions and often wrong direction to totally different cities! I also noticed he was storing cabinets for a Worcester Housing company in the same units as paying customers!And seen customers come in wondering where the belongings went. Also witnessed him treat his costumers with no respect screaming at them and down right ignorant.Telling his customers he has a renters licence BEWARE "HE DOES NOT"! Also BEWARE of HIDDEN FEE'S Bill loves to charge for tape shrink wrap, and anything else that will add on to you'r bill that you were not aware of when signing of the bill . Also gets seriously Irate when his employers don't try getting away with customers not using travel time coupons. If the customer use the coupon then Bill gets mad and threatens employers jobs! I am a profesional mover have worked as a mover for 17 years and **BEWARE** Bill hires people to move his customers furniture that have NO experince in the moving buisness also hiring people who are thieves and steal people property ! And when Bill is told that these people are thieves and steal he keeps them working for him anyways ! So as you can see Monster mover are truely MONSTERS! after working for Bill I have seen it all! Im writing this review to bring attention to potential customers DO YOUR RESEARCH! STAY AWAY FROM "THE MONSTERS OF MOVERS!"
Monster Movers Moving Company Review -- MA to TX – I contacted these movers via the link that's on this website. .
Charles called me the morning of the estimate appointment, and when I told him I had a dentist appointment and would like to push things back by about 15-20 minutes, he said no problem.
Charles came by and before going to the inventory, he asked questions about what I was looking to do. He told me about this site and also told me that I should get three quotes. I told him that I had done so and that he was the third. What was most impressive was that he had suggestions on how to take care of things on my own and to save money on it. For example, when I said that I didn't have the box for my TV and that I was quoted a price of $200 to pack it from Federal and that I didn't want to spend that kind of money on a TV that only cost me $400, he told me not to worry. First, he said, he could have his guys do it for $25. He gave me a bunch of tips on how to do it myself and save some money.
I also mentioned to him that I figured I'd have to get rid of my aquariums. He gave me a suggestion on how to take care of it. I was very impressed. The other movers told me that I'd have to have them packed by their people and that it'd cost a decent chunk of change -- more than the aquariums are worth!
He did the inventory and instead of just looking briefly at things, he had suggestions on what to keep and what to toss. In fact, he pulled out a bottle of olive oil and said to me, if you want to keep this, and I know that nobody likes tossing $20 down the drain, at the very least you should put it in a zip lock bag and seal it. That way, if it does break -- and yes, the insurance will cover it but it's a hassle -- it's contained. He also told me that much of the food in the cabinet was not going to be able to be shipped.
I asked him if he could ship my car for me, and he told me that he could. The price was $250
The big difference for these guys versus the others I called is the advice I got from Charles. The others were professional and I'd have no problem working with them. But what made Bayshore stand out in my mind is the advice and suggestions that I received.
I'm in sales myself, and Charles did the same kinds of things I do. I'll give advice, and if I can't provide a service, I'll tell you who can. If my service isn't competitive, I'll tell you that as well.
The move itself went well. The pick-up and delivery were uneventful - which is a good thing. There wasn't any damage and the moving crew took all of the debris from my house and assembled all of my items for me at the offload. The estimate for the move was exactly how much the move cost me. There weren't any other fees/taxes. Overall, it was a great experience.
BEWARE!!!! DO NOT USE THESE MOVERS OR YOU WILL BE SORRY – They will tell you anything to get your business and promise the world DO NOT BELIEVE A WORD!!! They lie and damage your belongings. Car was damaged and then I was told "...we don't cover that, we do it for free basically, like a friend..." Well, I don't know about you but I don't want "a friend", especially one I've never met to move my car. I want a professional, insured, responsible company. This is not it. If you are moving locally, maybe, but not long distance!!!!!! You've been warned.
I do not know who this customer is, I hope they will contact us with their concerns. I am guessing it is another moving company trying to write poor reviews on other companies.
Great Moving Company - Gift Certs for referrals! – We moved in early 2010 with Monster Movers and again last month (August 2011) and both times we had the pleasure of having Ian and Craig as the driver and helper. We moved in 2010 from NYC to Boston and the move was flawless, we also reviewed that move on moverreviews and in August from Boston to Worcester and this move also was perfect. My wife and I both are consultants for a large software firm which is the reason we move so often and will porbably be moving in the next year or 2 again unfortunately and will most certainly be using them again. Also, we have referred several friends and colleagues to their services and have had positive reviews from all who have used them. They have mailed us referral checks on all of them and we appreciate it very much.
Arrived late, stole our ipod, ran off into the sunset – August 8th 2011. The Monster Mover's sent 3 men late. When they came into our 4300 sq. ft. home all tehy did was look around. One of the movers was not focused. He kept walking away and looking into boxes or things, acting funny. Then all of a sudden he ran upstairs alone looking for a bathroom. While i took the other 2 guys on the offical house tour before starting the house tour, my husband freaked out and said the ipod was missing from the stand. I aksed the lead mover if his guys might have clipped it. He said no. Soon after they had a fight in the truck through the guy out on the street, came back picked him up, canceled our move and drive off into the sunset. They are crazy and unprofessioanl. Our $100 deposit was never returned after one month. So now I am going ot call the local policed in Worcster, Ma to place a claim against the buisoness. Good luck everyone!
Stuck to Long Distance Estimate - Good Hustle – My family just moved from Orlando to Boston in March. We did what everyone told us to do and got three estimates. Two estimates were very close and the other was quite a bit cheaper. We choose Monster Movers (one of the higher bids) because we felt like the people from their local agent were straight with me. When I asked why one company was so inexpensive they told me that they did not know for sure but warned me about being tricked into accepting an attractive estimate and being charged more later. They stood by their estimate and assured me that if they estimated the weight of my shipment too high that I would be pleasantly surprised when they billed me less.
The crew who came to pack my belongings into boxes were wonderful. They were professional acting every minute and finished quicker than I thought they would. My husband and I just let them in and gave them a few directions and they did the rest. On moving day I was surprised at the amount of care the movers used in protecting my things. They covered the floors and banisters before they did anything. They wrapped almost everything in moving pads inside my house. They wrapped all of my cloth furniture in a plastic wrap. I do not know what else they could do to keep my thing safe. When the movers delivered my things it was more of the same. They worked so hard and steady.
I was told what I owed the day before they delivered. The bill was slightly less than the estimate but a lot more than the low bid I received.
I feel like I made the best choice when I hired Monster Movers to move us.
Bad Bad Worse, break stuff don't pay – Screwed up in so many ways. Had to move some stuff myself. Then they broke things and practically yelled at me when I mentioned it. Still waiting for money they promised. It has been months and keep saying sending a check. Bill is confrontational and the worst. Stay away and save yourself this experience.
I question the good reviews. Horrible service.
Just great service – I am very satisfied with the work provided by Monster Moving and Storage. I can't say enough how much they helped me with the intricacies of my move. First, I had to leave earlier then estimated and arrive earlier as well. Dan made sure I was going to get serviced no matter what. Originally, I was suppose to be a part of a tractor trailer, which was ok by me. But since I changed the day of pick up and delivery, they had to charter a truck especially for me. I understood that all this was going to incur an additional cost, but I was surprised how minimal the extra cost was. I didn't expect that at all. My company paid for any additional amount out of my pocket, so I was totally fine with that. Plus, they packed everything, they reassembled everything as well. I can't say enough how happy I am with them. Thanks so much Monster Moving for your help and dedication.
