Honest Moving Company reviews on Ladera Ranch Meathead Movers48 total customer reviews
The guys were great and they were really working hard. They were super helpful and friendly and professional. The move just took a lot longer than I anticipated. We have always had four movers and two trucks and the same amount of stuff. It just has never taken this long. We usually pay about $2,500. We were bummed because we really wanted a move to start earlier in the day and we could only get 10am. They arrived at 10:30. At 12:30 they had to take a break because two of the guys came from another job and had been working for 5 hours already. I guess I figured the other two could keep working so at least two were working? They didn't get back to work until about 2pm. It just extended the day two hours into the job. My cleaner wasn't able to get the house cleaned as quickly and started because it was 1-1/2 hours longer that they were done at the house due to the lunch break so we didn't get out of the house for a lot longer. I have never had a mover stop mid-way through for a lunch break. I think they would normally break on the way to the new house. It just slows it all down which makes my move more expensive. Then when they got the new house they changed crews again and two new guys came and two other guys from Oxnard left. I feel like if there weren't all of those changes it would have been quicker as well. Also, when I was on the phone I was told if we get to the maximum hours then if we run over it doesn't matter, but it's just the flat rate highest amount, but instead he was saying I would need to pay overtime yesterday. Thankfully, we didn't need to do that. They folded the moving blankets as they went along. In the past I think my movers usually just throw them in the truck vs taking time to fold the blankets. The man on the phone said they try to usually get it done with the minimum time don't often to go the max time. In my head I thought there's no way we will be 7-8 hours so if it's a few extra hours and ends up at around $2,500 it's what we usually pay, but it just kept taking so long and then it was 8 full hours and $3,700 later. We paid only $2,500 I think to move from SD to OC and that was done in less time with the longer drive included. At the end of the day the stuff is not broken and it's done, but I will probably go with another company next time due to the cost and how long it took and that fact that they took that long lunch that extended the day which I wasn't warned about ahead of time. They also had a crew from out of the area and maybe not working together makes things slower too as they aren't as familiar with how they work or something. I am not sure. All of that stuff just seemed to make it drag on. I am a bit bummed.
I think it was a little to pricey for the move and maybe should of shopped pricing before selecting the company.
Local Residential Move from Ladera ranch to Rancho Mission Veijo
Scheduled at 9 you called and changed time on us at the last minute. Told We would have a truck with a lift gate -NO LIFTGATE. No mattress bags big enough for king only twin??????? They carried my washer and dryer by hand- I overheard them say they brought the wrong dolly. It took 20 minutes to get the washer down the stairs. They made marks on the walls said they would clean it up and didn't. When I asked them about it they asked for a rag!!!!! I said I would do it myself. they smashed the plants in the planter. Basically it was like having my son and two of his friends move us, so unprofessional. When I called and complained I was told you would take 10% off, that never happened. Adrienne told me he had faith in his moving team-not exactly what I wanted to hear. I'm pretty sure at this point there is nothing you can do to make things right! The one thing I don't want is to hear your sorry again, that seems to be the one thing you can all do great!
As with our previous move, the Meathead movers were energetic, polite and friendly.the were also excellent planners who efficiently filled the moving van while treating all our belongings with utmost care. Great job and highly recommended. Thanks!
The were working at a very speedy from the beginning and end also very carefully doing their job. I would give them a great good big 10!
Very kind and professional crew of employees!! Thank you!
All four guys were great to the tail end. It was a long day with many challenges that no one saw coming and Trevor managed and navigated through them so effectively and efficiently. Not a scratch was left behind and everything made it to their destinations. Although I wish it didn’t cost so much, the latter is that being safe and not being in hurry resulted in a clean move. I’m pleased with all of it. I hope the guys don’t hate me today if they are super sore from all the stairs and switch backs!!! Thank you Meathead! Until next time:)
Fast, efficient, friendly, and hard-working
