“The fellows who did the moving, I would give a 4. They worked hard; I had stuff that was scratched. Some of my furniture had chunks of wood about it. Yesterday I was unpacking more stuff, and some dishes were chipped. I was not happy with the way my furniture is. I called, and they told me to take photos of them, and send the photos. I have a million photos to send to them.”

“The ownership and the schedulers are very accommodating. The workers took their time. You can tell they take pride in their work. They went out of their way to make sure they didn’t damage anything. This is my 2nd or 3rd time that I’ve used them. They are really very good. They wrap everything, including your railings, just to further protect your home and items.”

“They put a lot of effort in, and tried very hard to do what I needed done. In any move there are a few setbacks, but I don't think that's avoidable. I was satisfied, and they did a good job.”

“Oscar's way overcharged me on the quote that they provided me to move a 1 room student a few miles Boston was overcharged by $3+”

“All the guys that helped with the move did a great job. They were careful with our property (including moving an expensive couch out a third floor window), timely, and friendly. My two year old thought they were awesome.”

“The movers showed up on time and worked well as a team. They were friendly and helpful and careful with our belongings.”

“This was my second time using Oscar's Moving Company and they were fantastic. We had reserved parking spaces for the moving truck in front of both the apartment we were moving out of and the new apartment, but cars parked there anyway. Oscar's was able to work around the cars, and still get the job done very quickly! I would definitely recommend them!”

“Allan with Oscar's was great to deal with when setting up. The crew that came out was very polite and respectful. They took great care in wrapping and protecting my furniture—everything was bubble wrapped or wrapped in blankets. Way better care with my things than the previous moving company (a large national chain). Would highly recommend and will use for my next move.”

“Move from a 1BR on 1st floor to 3 floor condo. Quote came within $3 of what move actually cost. Movers were great— efficient, polite, careful. I felt confident with how they handled my furniture. I have always done self-moves with family members, but I decided to pay for real movers and it was totally worth it. I would definitely use them again, and would absolutely recommend to others.”

“Fifth move with Oscar’s. Never have had any issue. The crew works hard and fast. They were always on time and at or under budget. I did shop around this last move and ended up back with Oscar’s. Next move I won't waste my time - I'll go right to Oscar’s.”

“Oscars was the only moving company that actually did a walkthrough of the house to see the volume of household items I had before pricing the move. I had the same group of movers for both ends of the trip and they were brilliant. They were very pleasant and efficient. I'm glad I went with Oscars and not the previous company I was going to use.”

“The movers themselves were very professional and did great work. However, I was over-billed for the service and when I called to contest the bill the customer service rep was very rude. I was eventually reimbursed for the overcharge, however the negative experience with the service rep would stop me from recommending them or using their services in the future.”

“The guys who helped us move were professional, strong and super-efficient. They were more on the ball than we were and even helped us pack a few things. The move took less time than we expected thanks to them. I recommend them highly.”

“We were told they'd show up around 1am but didn't show up until almost 2pm. I called several times until someone told me that they were finishing up another job. We were very strapped for time given travel. This was very frustrating. Once there, they did a good job, but the punctuality was a real problem for us.”

“The company is so unprofessional in that instead of a 3 man crew they brought in a 4 men crew which I had to pay for, but still the work took double the amount of time. I lost a number of valuables and the beds and the lamps are broken. They made me sign an agreement at the last minute that waived all their responsibilities. Please don’t use them.”

“I have moved 3 times so far in the greater Boston area. Moving with Oscar's was by far the best experience. They gave me the lowest quote of the 3 companies I contacted. And they were able to accommodate an earlier move date than initially planned with no extra charges. I was moving from a house to an apartment with a bunch of furniture and boxes being put into a container. The crew arrived on time (we were still packing assuming they will be late as had been the case with my prior moving experiences) and took stock of what needs to be moved to where and went to work. I had a lot of stuff going into, what probably is, an undersized container. However, they were very careful and organized, and got all of the stuff going into storage to fit into that container. They moved rest of stuff to my apartment including an unplanned detour to drop some stuff at a friend's place (no additional charges). They did this all in less than the estimated time. No furniture got damaged. They used a lot of blankets and tape to pack stuff securely. I would definitely recommend using Oscar's moving. I plan to use them again when I move from the apartment into a house.”

Review by
10/05/2016

“Oscar's way underbid the job and then piled on charges at the end. One of the movers had never moved before - this was his first week on the job and he apparently had minimal if any training, and he was visibly exhausted early on. The other 2 movers did their best to leave him with the heavy stuff. They gouged walls, had to throw box springs over the 3 story balcony even though I had gotten them up the stairs (one box spring was damaged in the process) and were generally unfriendly. What is odd is that I had used them for a friend's move a month earlier and loved that crew. This one was awful. Oscar's sent someone out to plaster the holes in the wall and he did a poor job.”

“I would hire Oscar's Moving Company again without question when the need arises. They showed up right on time, worked quickly, and were friendly! You can't beat the price and quality of service”

“Very accommodating since I had a short time to vacate my house and I think they went out of their way so we didn't have to reschedule our closing date.”

Review by

“The company got high marks at both ends of moves. One set of items in the kitchen were missed but were readily compensated for. Men were courteous, efficient and very helpful with any special requests. I definitely recommend them.”

“Efficient, punctual and friendly. Although some of the boxes clearly labeled for ‘home office’ ended up buried among those taken to the storage facility, which resulted in some inconvenience and additional expense later on.”

Review by

“My movers with Oscar's were fantastic. First off, the price that was quoted was, by far, the most reasonable one that I found (and I shopped around a lot in the area) I didn't need movers, but more truck-loading services, as I was moving states and was planning on driving the truck myself. I was incredibly impressed with the way the movers were able to ‘Tetris’ my furniture and boxes so efficiently and with incredible organization. My only disappointment was that they didn't use the moving blankets we had provided for all of the furniture, so a couple of my pieces got nicked. Luckily, they were old pieces, so I wasn't too disappointed. It was also partially my fault because they didn't realize that I had blankets until halfway into the moving process. Overall, though, they were really fantastic. USE THIS COMPANY! (Oh, and don't forget to tell them you have blankets.)”

“Movers were AWESOME. VERY upset that you double dipped on travelling fees!!! I was told of a fee to go from the company to my house and back to the company, only to find out that they had a 2nd job to go to after mine. So I paid for a travelling fee from my house to the next job and the next job also paid for a travelling fee from my house to theirs. That is very unprofessional!!!!!!”

Review by
10/03/2016

“Great job! Extremely friendly, fast, and hard-working! One of their guys called out sick the morning of the move, and the three of them just picked up the slack to get the job done in the time frame quoted despite being one of the hottest, most-humid days of the summer! Very impressed!”

“Very easy to work with related to scheduling. 3 movers arrived on time and worked well together. Delivery was scheduled for the next day and occurred without any problems. Very pleased with the care taken of my property and professional approach to this job.”

“Though it has been several months ago, our move was handled correctly and efficiently. We had a somewhat complicated move requiring two pickup stops (and two trucks) and, once we arrived at our home, carrying some heavy furniture to the second floor of our historic house. In no case was anything damaged nor anything in the home damaged. The crew was personable, and the best part was that the final charge came in under the estimate! I do recommend tipping the crew.”

Review by
10/02/2016

“The guys were great to work with. They worked really hard. Packing us up they were fabulous. The same team unpacked us but they were not as careful. Some boxes were upside down and a few roughly handled. After they left we noticed a couple of deep gouges in our hardwood flooring and a deep dent in our living room wall. We had a lot of heavy items. It was dark when they finally finished. They really should have had at least 7 people to move us in instead of 6.”
