Original review: May 12, 2023

WayForth had a local representative that could come out and look at my move, which was a big plus for me. It wasn't just taking a picture and then they talk a little bit about it. It was coming there looking at it, seeing what was an antique, what was fragile, and that was a big plus, too. Natalie was very experienced. She knew what she was talking about and again, that was another positive thing for the local people. I had about six items that I wanted special care. Two of them were baby grand pianos and a grandfather clock that they subbed out to Queen City Piano Movers, which I also thought was very smart, where they didn't try to move it themselves. They really had people that knew the industry, knew how to take apart the piano and take care of it, especially with the move. I was very impressed with that.

The other three items were the master bed, antique armoire and a China hutch. It was king size and it had the incline for your back and then also for your feet. So, it could go up and down. It was very heavy. The antique armoire was very big and had a lot of glass in it. The China hutch is very large. As far as the movers, I was impressed with the prep work, the packing, taking things apart, the care with putting things into the truck, even the matting that they put on my hardwood floors when walking in and out and then moving the items. I was totally impressed with the operation.

Everything took place in a day, where they came out, packed it, and then loaded it on a truck. Then the next day, I met them at my new home, which was five hours away. So, they traveled and spent overnight someplace nearby. In fact, this WayForth even had their local people help offload the truck, where Queen City Movers are from Charlotte. So, that helped where they also had additional help to bring the items in and set them up.

The WayForth guys did their work, they kinda split up into groups prepping the work, and then all worked together to make the move. I was very impressed. They did a great job of cleaning up. I realized that if everything had this detail with my move, it would have been a very expensive move, but what they did was exceptional. I've been pleased with our move, how we've been kind of trying to be economic goal with the moves, and overall, that worked out, other than can no longer get a lift gate with a rental truck. That's been the big deterrent for some of those things.

    The people at Gulf Coast Village gave me WayForth’s name and I called them and the next day, had someone come to our condo. She was wonderful to work with and very helpful but we said we would talk to the other company before we make a decision. Wayforth was fine with that. The next day they were supposed to come and they were over an hour late and did not call me. They went to the wrong apartment and fortunately, the people in the apartment they went to knew who we are and could send them to us.

    The people in WayForth made a diagram of the apartment we were moving into in Gulf Coast Village and how we could place the furniture. They were careful and kind. They were very happy to pack the things up and take them to Goodwill for us. We moved in on April 6th and one of the two elevators in this building broke down. Anybody who lived in the building had first access to the other elevator and when they spoke to us they said our movers were so nice. They didn't argue with them and said they could use the stairs and it was not a problem. We were moving into the fourth floor. So, they had to move beds and mattresses and couches but they still did it. And some people said they were singing on the job.

    The next day, two people came. They hung our pictures and in the kitchen, when they put things in the cabinets, they put Post-it notes so I would know what was in each cabinet instead of opening 10 cabinets trying to find a glass. It was just great. My husband and I both said we might have saved a little bit of money with the other person, but we sure wouldn't have gotten this service.

    One day, my husband and I were going out to dinner and we happened to be following up the main road in Cape Coral and we saw WayForth turn right into Goodwill. So, we knew that they were delivering what we were giving. The next day, we got an itemized list from Goodwill and it corresponded to the list that we had from WayForth. We were very happy with them. I would recommend them to anybody. They were helpful and if I said I was concerned about a thing, I could just call up and it would be settled in a minute. It was always they would take care of it and they truly did. It was great.

    Original review: April 19, 2023

    Our experience with WayForth was very good. We had a short amount of time because my father had died, and he has five children so we needed to move quickly to empty his apartment out in order to avoid paying for another month. He lived in a very nice retirement community. So WayForth came. The agent that worked with us was Lee and he was wonderful. We went through the process because we had three separate moves, and he handled it very nicely.

    My husband and I live in Gainesville, Georgia, and we went back for the pack-out in North Carolina, then we were here when they brought my father's stuff to our house. It was the same men that had helped pack us out, and they were very friendly and courteous. They knew what they were doing. My daughter is moving from Atlanta to Gainesville, and I told her WayForth is really good. They did a very nice job, and it worked out great. They still have to move both my sisters, and they're waiting until my sisters say they're ready for it all. One lives in San Diego, and the other lives in Seattle, and they have to take their stuff from Raleigh-Durham.

    WayForth response

    We understand that this was an emotionally difficult time for your family and that it is our duty as professionals in the business of relocation and estate services to bring understanding and compassion around such events. We thank you for putting your trust in us during such an important moment for you.

    We are so glad to hear that Lee and the team were able to make the transition smooth and gave you the helpful support you were looking for. Our hope is always that we can provide convenience during difficult times, allowing families to get back on their feet as quickly as possible with minimal stress or worry. We are glad we could exceed your expectations while working on this project! And we look forward to helping your family in the future!

    Original review: April 11, 2023

    WayForth was recommended by the senior facility where my parents moved and by the consultants who used to find the senior facility. They frequently move people into the senior facility so they were at the top of the list and recommended as a sort of soup to nuts provider. John was the one who moved my parents and he was great. He stuck with the project from beginning to end, including the final cleanup, which entailed having the auction house, pick up the items that my parents couldn't use and were being sold, and everything else they disposed of. He was very communicative and hands-on.

    The crew that did the boxing and the moving were all great too. The individuals who came the day before the move and boxed up were extremely helpful and communicative with my mother. They were careful. A few small things broke, but these are minor things like little pitchers. The reality is there was a lot of stuff. To have a handle break off a small little pitcher is not a big deal. The crew that came and did the move and then moved my parents into their different apartments at the senior facility were top-notch too. They were friendly and understood the urgency of everything.

    The experience was top-notch from beginning to end. WayForth was very upfront about what the process was going to be and what the likely costs were going to be. They actually came in a little bit under the initial estimate so I was extremely satisfied and more importantly, so was my mother because she was the actual customer.

    WayForth response

    Thank you for the amazing review, Brian! We are so glad that WayForth had the opportunity to serve your family through this important transition. It was wonderful to hear that John was able to stay with your family until everything was taken care of. We pride ourselves on providing exceptional customer service from start to finish and aim to make the process as smooth as possible. Thanks again for choosing WayForth and recommending us to other families.

    Original review: April 10, 2023

    WayForth was so wonderful. They were recommended by the senior living facility where my mother is and where she was going to be moved. My mother was moving from independent living to assisted living and she's not entirely well, both physically and mentally. My sisters and I all live out of town. So, we had to coordinate from a distance, but they were very helpful. Brandi was willing to meet with me on a Saturday, which was lovely. We went through and she got the lay of the land to figure out how much stuff was there, how heavy it would be, how much of it was fragile, and all the things that movers internalize when they look at and price out a job.

    We then had to figure out what was going to fit in her smaller space. So, after Brandi came and looked at that, we did some measuring and said, “Okay, here are the things that are going to be moved, but I'm not sure where everything else is gonna go. And I don't know how to handle that.” She said, “Well, you know, what we could do is an extraction, where basically, we take out the things that are going to be moved to the apartment and just extract it like you would choose and then leave the rest of it there." I said, “Oh, God, that is so great. Because otherwise, there's no way I'm gonna be able to figure out where everything else is gonna go.” So, she gave me a really good solution for sort of breaking down and phasing the move so that my brain didn't explode. She gave us a quote.

    We met with the moving crew on the day of the move. My sisters and I divided up. They were on the sending end and I was down on the receiving end. So, I did not see them when they packed up, but I saw them as they brought down and moved things in. My sisters were happy with the whole thing. On my end, everything was great. They were very careful. They knew what they were doing in terms of how they would wrap it. They have these big things like big rubber bands. They were making sure that things didn't scrape up against door jams. There's a mechanical bed that had to be taken apart and put back together. It's one of these things that you can press and it bends you up. They figured out all the assembly and disassembly and reassembly for that. They were able to take the stuff apart that had to come apart and put it back together on the receiving end.

    My mother was being kind of difficult that day, and she was moving against her will. The movers were incredibly discreet and low-key. They read the room and said, “You know, we need to be quiet, we need to be in and out carefully, gently. You know, this is a volatile situation with the mother and we're not going to do anything to exacerbate that,” which was great. So, they were very cognizant of the psychosocial dynamics going on in the room and were great with that. I’m very happy about that whole thing.

    WayForth did the extraction and then we went back, and there were a couple of items that were going to go to my sisters and me in various places. They went back. They got access. They were willing to work with the facility to get access so that I didn't have to come back up, but I sent them photographs and said, “Pick up these three things and this is where they're going.” They're still holding two things right now because they're single items that are going out to the Midwest, and Brandi is working really hard to try to get me the best deal she can because it's expensive when you only ship one thing and it's outside of the service area. It's been kind of a crazy thing, but they made everything really easy. They did a great job. I can't say enough good things about them. They were really remarkable.

    WayForth response

    Thanks, Mary! We are delighted to hear that your mother's transition was made easier by our team. It is important to us that all of our customers feel supported throughout the moving process, and it sounds like we were able to do just that in this situation. We are particularly grateful that you mentioned Brandi taking time out of her Saturday to meet with you--that level of service shows commitment and enthusiasm for helping our clients, and we thank you for the kind words! It's wonderful to know that WayForth succeeded in making this difficult time easier for your family. We look forward to working with you again in the future.

    Original review: May 14, 2023

    Two women came to my house and spent a good amount of time talking with me. We FaceTimed with the office manager in the Raleigh office and by the time they left my house, I had a very clear understanding of what would be involved, and I had a price. It was a very simple process. The crew spent two days at my house packing before the moving day and took things I was going to sell to a consignment shop for me. They would have taken things that I was donating but Habitat for Humanity came and got those. The crew wrapped everything. They also took some things that my daughter was gonna get and took them to her. She was impressed with how everything was so wrapped and how careful they were.

    On moving day, the crew were there bright and early. There were a number of people who came and were involved. They worked all day long. They were extremely efficient and were as nice as they could be. The movers from WayForth drove the truck from Charlotte to Raleigh and stored the vans overnight. And I drove down here and met them the next morning bright and early, and they did their job. People should use WayForth. They are expensive but you get what you pay for.

    WayForth moved the furniture from my aunt’s apartment to the assisted living home and the guys who came were super good. They handled even older furniture like it was brand new and wrapped everything. They did a wonderful job and were very friendly and accommodating. In general, the move was excellent. There wasn't a lot of stuff for my aunt so it took four hours.

    WayForth response

    Thank you for the glowing review, Lou! We’re so pleased to hear that our team exceeded your expectations. It sounds like they really went above and beyond in wrapping up your aunt’s furniture and making sure it made it safely to the assisted living home.

    They came when they said they were gonna come. They were very efficient and careful with the furniture. They did a great job. It was better than I expected. They were all very professional. The team leader was very experienced and careful. He understood exactly what he had to do to move furniture and unload the pod.

    I called WayForth and we were pleased with the service. The rep came out. She was very helpful. She went through the house, measured many pieces of furniture. She has a better idea than I did of what was what would work when my friend Donna measured all of the pieces of furniture in the house, and was very professional. They took a couch from Donna's family room, a little hutch from the dining room, and a chair that was in her bedroom. They were so thoughtful. The gal talked about, "We'll take some folding tables," and that was wonderful. They chose the pictures. We changed out a couple of pictures that Donna preferred having there. Monday, when Donna arrived, and she was not in favor of this move, she wanted to be in her home, but when she went in she said it's beautiful. With the furniture that were chosen, she felt at home. I breathed a sigh of relief.

    WayForth response

    Thank you for taking the time to write about your experience with WayForth. We are thrilled to hear that you were pleased with the service. Our team prides itself on excellent customer service, attention to detail, and thoughtfulness. We value hearing about how we can improve our services for future customers too!

    We are committed to helping our customers move in a way that takes away as much stress as possible. Providing furniture layouts and measurements is an important part of this process, and we’re glad that Donna loved the outcome of all of your hard work, even though she was not initially enthusiastic about her move.

    We had to move my sister from the place she lived into an assisted living facility because she was at end-of-life. Wayforth allocated one person to manage the job. He was responsible for giving me a quote. He did a site survey and collected what he needed. It was all very timely, quick and thorough. The moving crew was very upbeat and easy to work with. We were in an emotionally challenging situation and they could not have been nicer. When my sister passed, they told me they took a knee. It was a really good aspect of the whole process. I'd recommend Wayforth to anyone especially in this situation. Time was of the essence and they closed the loop. Communication was very good.

    WayForth response

    Thank you for your kind words, Andrew. We are deeply sorry to hear that you had to move your sister during such a difficult time. Here at WayForth we strive to make stressful transitions easier on our customers and your feedback is appreciated.

    Thank you for recognizing our team’s professional and friendly demeanor while they worked on the project - we believe great service is key in satisfying each customer and creating a positive experience. Furthermore, we were humbled by the gesture of respect when our movers “took a knee” when they heard the news of your sister.

    Our core mission remains to provide top-notch personalized service with every transition we do - it sounds like our team was able to accomplish that goal with yours! If there is ever anything else WayForth can do for you, let us know; we’re always here to help.
