...We moved on short notice and our needs for tight scheduling were met in a polite and professional manner by everyone from the owners through the front staff to... all of the people we encountered... The service was cordial and personal but also efficient and professional.Read full review
This was our first time using movers and we could not be happier. They arrived on time and worked quickly and efficiently.

The moving experience we had was great. Dealing with one person to set up and coordinate things made the moving go very smoothly. Response to questions was fast. I have had to move multiple times and this is the only time where the experience was good. The quotes were accurate and the information I was given was realistic. Would definitely recommend the company and if I ever need to move again, I will be calling BOLD Moving and Storage!
Thank you for taking the time to write us such a nice review! We truly appreciate your compliments! I will relay to the entire pick up crew! We appreciate your business, and we're happy you made a BOLD move!
We hope you're settling into your new home!

I was looking for a mover for a complete household move from NC to Missouri. I went through the usual suspects of national carrier / brokers before coming across Bold Moving & Storage. Their reviews were consistently outstanding. Spoke to their senior relocation coordinator, Joshua, and was immediately impressed with his honesty, attitude, and commitment to personalized customer service. Decided to give the smaller firm a chance and was not disappointed.
Joshua was very patient with all my questions and kept in contact with us every step of the way. He is a man of his word. None of the add-ons, extras, up-charges, holding goods hostage, etc, that are so prevalent in the industry. Bold Moving assigned one of the best crew leads, Ian, to handle the actual packing, load, move and unload. Ian and his team were exceptional in their professionalism and care for our belongings. In any move, there will always be hiccups. The true test is how a firm handles the inevitable issue. Joshua and Bold are standing by their commitments to me. I wholeheartedly recommend Bold Moving for your relocation needs.
Wow! What an amazing recommendation! You Tom, are a man of your word as well. Thank you so much for the business!
I will share this with Ian and the team! Thanks again Tom, and if you ever need movers just give us a call!

This is an unbiased review of my experience with BMS (Bold Moving and Storage). To me my move seemed complicated, but after getting bombarded from movers with offers I went with BMS. The people I talked to were professional and flexible. I had your normal household items to move, but several high-value items like a motorcycle and four 4K TVs. The movers showed up on time on the date schedule and came ready to work. The on the ground movers took extra care with all my items. They worked hard and were highly professional. Everything with my move was explained up front and simple.
I was moving out of state and they had my house hold items down to my new home fast. Upon arriving to my new home the movers got to work quickly. They hustled but also handled all my items with care. And I am happy to say that nothing moved arrived damaged. My motorcycle was handled with extreme caution and all my electronic worked perfectly plus and all my furniture was in perfect condition. And lastly this companies ethic are so high that my original estimate was more than quoted and they refunded me back money already paid. In all I will definitely use BMS for my next move which will be soon. I am extremely satisfied with the cost and the quality of service.
Thank you for the review and the kind words! We appreciate your business! Thanks again for making a Bold move!

My wife and I relocated from Virginia to Michigan and the move couldn't have gone better. From start to finish the move was by far the best cross country move I've experienced thanks to these wonderful people. I have moved 20+ times and have always had something go wrong but that was not the case here. From the beginning in Richmond, I had multiple communication calls and updates. There were 5 guys that came to load our home. I asked for extra special care due to numerous antiques and family heirlooms that I simply could not transport myself. All of the guys did a complete walkthrough before any work was done which assured me that they were all on the same page.
On the receiving end, all the household items were packed tightly and strategically so well that nothing moved which is un heard of. Now, I'd like to give a shout out to Sherrod and Ryan because those two lifted and completed what I would call "A royal pain in the butt" move given that I have some extremely heavy items. All in all, do not call around and get different quotes. These guys are a little more expensive but 100% worth it!!! My quoted price never changed. And always remember folks, take care of the people moving you. Treat them to lunch and tip if they've satisfied you because in the end your entire home is packed up into one truck and will get there like nothing ever happened. I will hire again no questions asked. I hope this helps if you're on the fence on who to use.
Thank you so much for making a Bold move!!
We truly appreciate the compliments and stellar remarks! We will continue to change the industry one move at a time. You have movers for life now brother, please call us for the next one!

Right from the start, I knew I selected the right company for the move. Joshua was very personable, polite and had great attention to detail. The company met our needs and delivery date was flexible which made it less stressful with all that was happening in our lives. We were pleased with the moving crew, Spencer, Alex and "Pop". They were friendly and fast.
Our move was a two part delivery move and with Spencer leading, the items were seperated and loaded on the truck for each move. When they left, we prayed the deliveries would go just as smoothly. We were so pleased with the crew. We were kept informed of our delivery date and our earlier delivery date request happened. The best part of the move was seeing Spencer arrived with Sherrod for the two part unloading. Spencer is a born leader, hard worker and takes the time to train the crew working with him. I witnessed Spencer working in SC and in CT with a different crew each time. No matter who he worked with he took the time assisting and ensuring the crew did not injure themselves while still meeting the client's needs. Spencer, "Thank you" and I hope the company knows what an excellent representative they have in you. Should I ever need a moving company in the future, I would hire this company again in a heartbeat.
Thank you for the amazing review!
I'm going to share this with the whole team!
Thank you so much for making a BOLD move, you remind me of home (Jersey) so much! Please pass the word along to all your friends and anyone you know making an upcoming move. Thank you again!

We were relocating from Virginia Beach to Florida and shopping for a moving company. My Wife wanted one of the well know large companies and was reluctant to use such a small and little known company. However, we were pleasantly surprised. Bold Moving and Storage showed up on time and did the best wrapping and packing job I'd seen in my 30 years of moving in the military. The owners were onsite, professional and effective. They wrapped things that I'd never seen wrapped before and placed everything in their 30 day free storage.
We got to Florida and found a house in record time. With one call To Bold we arranged for our delivery within a three day window. Once more they showed up on time and worked until the job was done and charged us what we agreed to. All in all they did a great job and I highly recommend them to anyone moving in State or out of State.
It was a pleasure having you on board.
We’re happy you had such a positive experience and we thank you for spreading the word!
Thanks again for the recommendation!

I hired these guys based on good reviews, and I really wanted to like them, but....unfortunately I have mostly negative things to say. The positive first: 1. Arrived basically as planned at both origin and destination. 2. Packers and unpackers were courteous enough. The negative:
1. COMMUNICATION. This is the main issue that prompted me to write this review. Despite all of the negative below, I would have been reasonably satisfied if they had consistently communicated throughout the entire process.
2. Damages to personal property and premises. As noted by another recent review, many items were damaged. This included major dents in the walls at both origin and destination.
3. False assurances. One of the unpackers took pictures of all the damaged items and assured us he would file an insurance claim on our behalf. After much back and forth with the insurance company, it's clear that this was not done. I filed the claim, which entailed an unreasonable amount of work (see below).
4. Careless driving? I'm not sure how, but somehow these guys managed to run over two security cameras owned by the building where we were renting our apartment. Rather than own up to it, they threw them in the bushes. When confronted by a building manager, they admitted to the damage and assured him they would pay the $3600 bill. However, they have not done so. See #7 below.
5. This is minor but -- if you want to plan your travel, please note that these guys won't give you a particular day for pick up or delivery. It's always a two-day window until the day before. (To be fair, in our case they ended up showing up on the specific day we preferred at both ends.)
6. The claims process. Given all of the damaged items, we elected to attempt to file our own claim with the "insurance company". Although the movers repeatedly referred to this as an insurance process (and even bragged about how good it was), the website for this company says they are not an insurance company and they merely make recommendations to the movers. Furthermore, they make the process incredibly tedious, presumably hoping that nobody will actually file.
7. UNPROFESSIONAL AND UNETHICAL. I waited 6 months to post this review hoping that the owner would respond to my repeated communication and pay the bill he said he would pay. However, the $3600 bill for the damages detailed in #4 above is outstanding and he has been ignoring me. Beware of this company. Do not hire.
We have never not communicated with you, but if you have not reached out to us in six months, how are we supposed to know you still have an issue?
For the damaged household good items, we sent you the documentation to file a claim, this process is specific to the rules set forth by the dot. We have to follow the rules for that, and it really is not that tedious, you file it online, submit some photos and can be as easy as you make it.
We are deeply sorry you feel that way about our company, however we provided insurance information on the vehicles for the damage to your building, and it was and is up to them to file a claim with them. The driver submitted his information to the building, and also to you, and we notified the building of the damage.
I have called you multiple times with no answer , and no response, to further assist you with this process.
We take pride in our work, we do a good job, and unfortunately some things happen, we are not perfect and do not claim to be, but one thing that we are, is accountable and professional.
We have good people that work for us.

I had a full house that was loaded and unloaded by the professional people. The team was so great to work with and would recommend them to everyone moving. The most honest team to work with, they went above and beyond to help us.
Thank you Norma for the kind words, we appreciate your feedback and hope that you are settling in to your new Maine house quite nicely.

From the time we booked our move to the time the movers came and packed up our house all the way though dropping everything off, our experience has been amazing. Bold Movers is a professional company start to finish and their work speaks for itself. I will be recommending to my friends and family.

A couple months ago I moved from Washington DC to the Kansas City area. I found the whole process to be excellent, from getting a quote to scheduling a date, to the actual move. Communication was always very clear and responses were prompt. There was one hiccup in moving in where an existing light fixture in the new home was cracked. We are currently working through that though, and the company has been very reasonable to work with to come to resolution. I definitely recommend hiring these folks for your next move.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write us a 5 star review!!
You had the pleasure of working with Carlos, he is an awesome guy with a big personality! We're happy you're happy and thank again for making a Bold move!
