Mickey and Zach were fantastic!!!

Very energetic. Very supportive with a tough situation of having to move my dad out of his home. Very professional. Would definitely hire them again! Thanks so much guys!

We used this company for an 8.5 hour job today moving large bulky items-some more than 400lb, movie theatre chairs and furniture upstairs.

We used this company for an 8.5 hour job today moving large bulky items-some more than 400lb, movie theatre chairs and furniture upstairs.

This was a very undesirable job for anyone! 3 young gentlemen showed up and we had to beg them multiple times to please drink water or stop long enough to eat a just slice of pizza. They were like machines! They wasted no time at all! They didn’t stop for a break or lunch and we’re so joyful to work. These gentlemen had phenomenal manners always using yes sir/ma’am. They had enduring work ethics that you very rarely see today! Also- the price was very competitive! When it was time to pay we weren’t surprised with a more expensive bill and we weren’t hassled over hidden fees! I’m a realtor and will be referring all of my clients to them!! We were located in Tanner Alabama And Bham people came to save the day!

This is the second time I’ve hired this company with local moves and both times have been great, with different guys doing the work on the two occasions.

This is the second time I’ve hired this company with local moves and both times have been great, with different guys doing the work on the two occasions.

Today it was Chris and Desmond and they were careful, kind, and patient. They really went the extra mile trying to (fruitlessly) get my dryer into my laundry space. It’s not their fault that they couldn’t make it fit, and they sincerely did their very best. Again - wonderful people. I can’t say enough!

Frequently Asked Questions


Curious about our moving services? Browse our FAQ to understand how we can support you in your next transition.

What are the signs that a thorough moving estimate is required?

Scheduling a detailed estimate is advised for large-scale moves exceeding 1500 square feet or when merging multiple households, which can be intricate. It's also prudent to seek a comprehensive estimate when handling items such as antiques or bulky possessions that need particular attention, to accurately gauge the moving expenses.

How do I get an in-person estimate?

If you're planning a large or intricate move and would like someone from our team to evaluate it personally, we're here for that. Just reach out to us to set up a visit. But don't worry if your move is straightforward – we can easily provide an estimate remotely through a phone call, our website form, or a video call using platforms like Facetime or Zoom.

Will I be charged the price on the estimate, or something else?

Our goal is to give you a clear idea of the cost upfront, without any unexpected fees. Your final moving cost will reflect the total amount of labor involved, including the time spent traveling to and from your location. The estimate we provide initially aims to be as precise as can be, but keep in mind that the final price may change if there are complexities or differences from the details you shared with us when you got the estimate.

What factors affect the cost of a move?

The price of relocating can change due to many things. Some common influences include:

  • Overall volume of your belongings
  • How well items are packed
  • Travel distance between your old and new place
  • Weather and seasonal conditions
  • Ease of access to your properties
  • The heaviness and size of furniture and boxes
  • Difficulty involved in taking furniture apart
  • How organized everything is

If you're looking to save money, we can talk about ways to move efficiently and neatly.

Can I reserve a moving date?

Yes, you can set a specific date for your move once you get an estimate. Telling us early about when you plan to move helps us serve you better. Confirming your booking after signing your new home’s contract is a good way to secure the perfect day for your move.

What should I do to prepare for moving day?

For a seamless transition on moving day, consider these tips:

  • Pack smartly: Use robust boxes, place items carefully, and don't overload.
  • Don't reuse old boxes: They may not be sturdy enough to protect your belongings.
  • Label each box: This makes unloading and finding things easier.
  • : Make sure movers have unblocked paths through your home.
  • Secure personal treasures: Keep important documents and valuables with you.
  • Prepare a 'first-night' kit: Pack essentials separate from other goods.
  • Seal boxes right: Ensure flaps are closed and tape properly applied.
  • Sort out service transfers: Don't forget to move over your utility accounts and update addresses.
  • Create a packing list: Organize and check off completed tasks.
  • Begin with infrequently used items: Package these first, leaving everyday stuff until the end.

Preparation is crucial for a stress-free moving day. Following these steps will help make the process go more smoothly.

What should I expect on moving day?

Expect a structured, careful process on moving day, with professional handling and attentive customer service. As a participant, keep passages clear and minimize last-minute changes. Always have an informed person on hand to guide movers for an optimal experience.

How long will my move take?

The timetable for your move depends on particulars such as move size and preparation level. Consult with your estimator for the closest prediction. The provided estimate will forecast the move duration comprehensively.

What should I do if there was an issue with my move?

In the rare event of move-related problems, contact Motivated Movers promptly. Any damages to your home will be our responsibility, and we’re committed to resolving any issues posthaste to guarantee your contentment with the moving experience.

My movers were great! Should I leave a tip?

Tip as a form of gratitude for exceptional service. Tips can vary due to move complexity and the team's performance. The exact amount is at your discretion, with general amounts ranging from $10-$40 per mover. Cash tips can either be distributed by the crew leader or granted individually.

Can Motivated Movers help with only a portion of my move?

Indeed, Motivated Movers offers flexible services to handle just parts of your move if required. You can count on our adaptability for both minimal and substantial moving tasks.
