I had a great experience with NorthStar – they saved me after I was left hanging by another company (lowball bid and no show the day of the move). Kate at NorthStar was completely understanding, was quick to respond, and secured a moving team for me within days. John and his team that handled the pickup in CA were totally professional. They re-packed a lot of my boxes (that were admittedly poorly packed) and made an itemized list of every box that went into the truck. They promised delivery within 20 days, but in fact, their dispatcher Cesar contacted me a few days after pickup to let me know that my stuff would be arriving only a week after pickup which was fantastic news. Sure enough, Austin and his team arrived Saturday morning and promptly unloaded all of our stuff. I’d definitely use them again.
Albert, Wilber, and Carlos Crew were tasked with moving a 10x15x10 storage unit filled from wall to wall to ceiling and loading into a U-Pack Trailer I was sending across country.
They Emptied that Storage Unit in around an hour. Amazing!
Then I tasked them to help me stay at the 17 linear feet of trailer I had paid for and marked with tape. Stating only if we can pack it as high and tight as you can and not to exceed that 17 ft if they could. In 1 hr they had unloaded all the items and packed them so well they only used 13 linear feet of the trailer saving me $1,000.00 in transport cost. I was forever grateful.
I have always used Northstar for my moves because all the crews I have had work efficiently and they are truly pros at what they do. You will never be disappointed with their work I can guarantee that.
Thank you Albert, Wilber, and Carlos
I will never move with any other company ever again! Northstar we love you and your amazing teams. We first moved with Northstar in early 2019. Upon arrival Andy and his team quickly realized things would be accomplished quicker by adding another mover – and I’m so glad we did! They got our 2 bed 2 bath apartment packed up quickly and moved us up to our house in Oxnard. They gave our 1 year old daughter a nickname and were sensitive to her issue with the sound of packing tape. They were great with our two anxious pups too. Second time we moved was a bit more complex but Northstar was happy to accommodate us and reassured me everything would be smooth. Pedro and his team arrived on time and ready to work! They got our 3 bed 3 bath house + Peloton packed up and moved us into Northstar’s storage until our new home in San Diego was ready for move in. When we had a confirmed move in date I called Northstar and Assi helped me plan a date for delivery of our things. He was a wealth of knowledge and answered all my questions. On delivery day they arrived earlier than expected, Abel and his team unpacked quickly and got the big things moved in with no issue. There was no damage to our property and I was so thankful to be able to start making this house a home. I now refer clients and friends to Northstar left and right because no one does moving as smart & professionally as Northstar. Thank you doesn’t even begin to cover it.
Thank you to the entire team at NorthStar. When I was looking for a mover, I made several inquires with moving companies. Some of them didn’t return calls, one came to my house and walked all over my light carpet with their shoes on. NorthStar did a video walk of the house and accurately sized the entire move. Loved the video walk through. Ron called at the time of the walk through to make sure I could use the technology. It was simple and fast.
This was the first time I had movers pack me. I was extremely anxious. What an amazing job! They certainly used a lot of paper and boxes, but nothing broke. I worked while they were packing and the guys were respectful and courteous.
Day of loading, we extremely well. They were knowledgeable of all the items that needed to go and did not forget a thing, including the storage unit. At the end of the day, we had a last minute change and needed to take the vacuum and the cleaning supplies. No problem, done.
We had a three day move because of the building we were moving from. On the third day, the picked up items from a storage unit and I got a call 20 minutes before to let me know they were almost there. Then to the new house. Again, professional, everything went where I wanted it and at the end we did a walkthrough to make sure we were happy.
Moving is never fun, but NorthStar made it easy for me. Next time, I will call them first and last.
We found NorthStar on Yelp when looking for moving companies that could both move us out of DTLA and store our items until we found a new place. We chose to use their services and had a great experience. The guys were efficient and got things moved quicker than we had planned. They wrapped all the furniture securely with moving blankets and stickered everything so they could track it (stickers were never directly on exposed surfaces and were all easy to take off). They used some of their own boxes to pack up stray stuff and had plenty of wardrobe boxes for our hanging clothes. They broke down big pieces like the couch and bed and reassembled them in the new space. They were able to easily get everything out of our 5th floor condo.
When they brought everything to our new house a couple months later, everything looked just like it did when they originally moved it out. They rolled out a piece of carpet from the front door into the living room so they wouldn’t scratch the floors with the dollies. We had two small breaks (one glass, one cheap plastic wheel), which is nothing to us considering we had at least 50 boxes total. The lead guy was chill and professional and easy to fill out paperwork with. All workers wore masks for CoVid safety. Overall we’re very happy we ended up going with NorthStar!
This is the company I recommend to anyone moving in the Bay Area. They are incredibly professional, have fair rates, and are the only company I’d trust to pack my valuable furniture items. They were really fast at packing up, made sure to triple wrap anything valuable, they were really clean in taking any excess packaging with them and made sure to protect the floors and walls of our apartment. Our storage unit was tight but they were basically Tetris masters in making sure everything fit but was also safe for storage in the way it was placed. Definitely reach out to them for a quote if you are moving in the Bay Area!
Just had our furniture moved from storage into our new home by NorthStar. We chose them based on reviews but still worried a little about how it was going to go. Austin, Kyle, and Tico were fantastic. They arrived and got started on time. The 3 of them worked really well together. Two moved things up into the truck and Tico put everything together in the truck like an amazing 3-D puzzle. Austin and Kyle were very careful with everything and took special precautions with a few delicate family treasures and we ended up with nothing broken, scratched or damaged. We had everything wrapped in plastic while in storage and they removed it from every piece before taking them into the house. They removed feet from a chair to get it through a tight squeeze. They took doors off hinges to make room to get things through. They were careful to keep things clean. And best of all they got our entire house in and set up in less time than we expected.
All I can say is you got to use NorthStar Moving the next time you move. We will!
My husband and I moved from a condo to a home in the SF Valley. We needed our things stored for a week as well and North Star did an amazing job! Our crew led by Alex was efficient, friendly, and professional on both ends. They took great care of our things in loading and unloading and I was really impressed with the service. I would highly recommend them to any friend looking to move!
Northstar Moving Company in Phoenix is a great moving company! We had several issues with our house sale and moving and they were able to work with us on being flexible to accomodate our closing/moving dates. Austin Bastian (team leader), Hamdi Lachaal, Adam Derr and David Camargo did an excellent job packing our belongings, loading and unloading into our storage units. We will be requesting the same team to load, transport and unload into our new home in a couple of weeks. They all were very careful, and took the time needed to get the job done right. They all are very friendly and courteous. They all wore masks while in our home. David – The coordinator, also is excellent! He is an excellent communicator. If you are on the fence about moving companies choose NorthStar! You won’t be sorry!!!
The Northstar team led by Juan, arrived on time, and quickly got to work. I’m glad I hadn’t fully wrapped all my larger pieces of furniture as they all did a much better job than I could have done (even though I think I think I’m pretty good, lol). My stuff was going into long-term storage, and they did a really good job getting everything into my storage unit. Overall, probably my best moving experience ever. Highly recommend Northstar!
