NorthStar moved us out of our 3 bedroom house into a two bedroom, second story apartment while we remodeled. We liked them so much we just had them move us back in to our remodeled home. Omar’s team was so fast, friendly, and helpful with our first move, we requested them again for the next move. They were very careful with our stuff and worked hard non-stop. For our first move, they even helped us pack.
They wrapped and taped all the furniture, and took great care with our breakables. Computers, monitors, and the 52-inch flat screen TV were all wrapped and taped – they even built a little cardboard crate for the TV.
We were a little nervous about getting dings on our newly painted walls, but there is not a mark. They even moved a Cal King bed up a wrap-around staircase without getting a mark on the walls.
With both moves they were done in 5 hours or less. I would definitely use NorthStar again, and ask for Omar!
I’ve used NorthStar 3 times in the past 5 years. I don’t think anyone hates to move more than I do, but NorthStar makes the experience painless with minimal stress.
Oscar, the foreman assigned to my move, last Friday, was very kind, polite, and the most helpful person. He and his team were easy to direct and very efficient and knowledgable. Nothing was damaged or lost – as usual! I highly recommend NorthStar to everyone!
Came on time. Did my job quickly and professionally, highly recommend!!!! (called before to confirm, mailed me contract etc)
Kevin and his assistant helped me move from Newport Beach to San Diego on April 21st. They were thorough and did an excellent job of carefully packing my 1 bedroom condo. Northstar may cost more than some of the other companies out there, but the real cost of moving is also what things break and have to be replaced. In this case brand new furniture and a lage plasma TV came out unscathed. After carefully looking at all of my things I could only find 2 very small and minor scratches. I am very particular and was impressed by that. These guys are professionals when it comes to moving. If that is what you want, they will serve you well. Moving is tough. These guys make it a lot easier. I would use them again with no hesitation. Good attitude, hardworking, knowledgeable about moving things, and careful.
Joel and his team were WONDERFUL!! They were fast, careful, and very professional. They packed everything good and nothing broke. Everything that they took apart, they put back together. They placed the furniture exactly where I asked them to. This is the second time I’ve used Northstar and I will use them again if I ever move again.
I used their [mobile storage] service. Easy drop off and pick up, cheap storage. When I called to gain access, they made it available within two days!
When I had a balance left they even cut a check for the balance while I was there gathering my stored items!
Great company and very friendly staff.
Just moved this weekend thanks to Northstar. I chose Northstar after reading all the good reviews on Yelp. They were right-on. Ran and his crew of three guys were awesome. My move from LA to Ventura Co took 4.5 hours from start to finish. That included two stops – one at my new place and one at my storage unit. Ran’s guy Angel was amazing . He fit everything into my storage unit despite my boyfriend’s insistance that I needed a larger unit. They saved, time, money, and a lot of backache.
I will definitely use them again next time I have to move. The cost was very reasonable. The guys are very honest, careful, and trustworthy.
Northstar includes 3 guys in your rate. Other movers only include 2 and charge almost the same rate (starving students). It was a very good deal.
They estimated an arrival time between 8 and 10am on Sunday. They were there by 7:45, which was fantastic.
I was able to book Northstar at the last minute – just 3 days before the move. No problems at all.
Northstar was very professional and courteous. Ran and staff did an excellent job unloading the furniture (1 bedroom set in under an hour and half). The delivery time line provided was anywhere from 1 – 5 days, and I was pleasantly surprised to receive delivery of my furniture on the 3rd day. That said, the weight of my 1 bedroom set didn’t include a refrigerator, couch, or kitchen table and the total weight was over 2,000 lbs. All in all, the customer service was top notch and I would definitely use their services again. Thank you
I have moved all over the place: Chicago to London back to Chicago back to London to Los Angeles and finally, most recently, back to Chicago again. I have had some terrible moving experiences so I was nervous about my latest cross country move. NorthStar was excellent! Every step of the process was easy and we communicated often. Although their quote was slightly higher than some other companies, they were willing to negotiate and had the highest (and well deserved) BBB ratings. The movers in LA were early and had my two bedroom apartment loaded within 2 hours. They packed my kitchen including all my dishes and crystal. Delivery was easy and the guys fabulous! Everything arrived perfectly (no breakage) within the delivery window that they confirmed. I received follow-up customer services calls after both pick-up and delivery. All the people involved with this move did an excellent job. I will absolutely use them again.
I called NorthStar on short notice for a move at the end of the month in Berkeley, CA. While all the other companies I called were busy, NorthStar was able to accommodate me. Even when I had to cancel at the last minute and then call back the next day to get the move appointment again, NorthStar was flexible and still had the slot to move my family.
The team was courteous, efficient, and careful with our fragile pieces. I have used a lot of moving companies in the past few years, and NorthStar was by far the most patient and professional from the first call to the final box. Furthermore, their prices were below the rates of their competition. I give them my highest recommendation.
