“We were very happy with Oscar's Moving company. They were wonderful.”

“They took very good care of us, and did a few little extras that were much appreciated. Communication was excellent.”

“It was a very positive experience. It worked out perfectly with the delivery of the PODS.”

“The customer service of the movers was excellent.”

“They were great!”

“They did good.”

“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.”

“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.”

“Oscar's Moving Company have dependable full service help.”

“I had an amazing experience with Oscar's Moving. The drivers were extremely friendly, positive, and professional. I would absolutely recommend them and use them if I ever move again—A+.”

“Oscar's did a terrific job. Workers were respectful, hardworking, and very capable. The manager, Alan, was very responsive and accommodating. My move was to two locations. My furnishings, artwork, Oriental rugs, and antique accessories arrived perfect. Amazingly, nothing was damaged or broken. Would highly recommend Oscar's Moving.”

“Oscar's Moving Company did a fabulous job on our move. They were on time, moved quickly, and were very courteous and friendly. I would recommend them very highly—A+.”

“The movers were incredibly helpful. I was so impressed.”

“They were great! Very professional team. They worked very quickly and moved a whole 3 bedroom house to another 3 bedroom house in a few hours!! They didn't break anything and were very respectful and careful with all of our stuff. Highly recommended!”

“They were great. I'd use them again and again!”

“I already recommended them to two other people (though not sure they followed thru). I also plan to use them again for my upcoming move.”

“Nice staff.”

“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.”

“Oscar's was fantastic and will absolutely use them in the future and recommend them to friends! Thank you for such awesome service!”

“Oscar's was great to work with, they were punctual, quick and honest.”

“They were very responsive & helpful with respect to questions and concerns. Movers were very hard working, careful and very pleasant to work with.”

“The movers worked very hard in extreme heat and were very pleasant to work with.”

“Honestly, I can't say one negative thing about my experience with them. They were on-time, extremely pleasant to interact with, thorough in every detail and made a stressful situation go as smoothly as possible!”

“Alan was fantastic; we set up the date and he worked with me to figure out the best way to estimate the costs. I was doing my own packing so it was a matter of providing him with numbers of boxes and furniture. I was way out in left field with quantity and quality but in speaking with me a few times on the phone, he was able to determine the size of truck, number of men needed and approximate hours. His team did a great job of wrapping all the furniture and packing their truck so there wasn't an inch of wasted space. Upon arrival at the new house, the furniture would not fit up the stairs and they used a hoist to take it thru the sliders in an upstairs bedroom - no scratches or damages! I never once noticed anything but focus and continual work on their part. I would recommend Oscar's to anyone. Alan is a gem and his team truly pros!”

“I would recommend Oscar's Moving Company to anyone. From my first contact with them through the finish they did a great job. Office personnel and supervisor and crew were consistently terrific, polite and very pleasant throughout. First time I ever received an accurate moving estimate, rather exceptional in its own right.”

“The company was very punctual! Extremely fast, very pleasant workers.”

“My wife and I needed movers for a fairly embarrassingly large move from one single family home to another. Oscar's came highly regarded and after calling a number of local moving companies, including receiving a number of estimates, we went with Oscar's based on their readiness to provide an accurate estimate and to find a convenient day and time for our move. While the initial estimate was certainly accurate, since it was a local move where my wife and I had a few buffer days to work with, we requested fewer hands and only one truck for our move. To paint a realistic picture, my wife and I were packed and moved up to Boston from DC by an employer and two years later, never went through sorting our belongings and reducing our footprint. Oscar's team of 4 movers and one large truck arrived on time and were able to load and unload 95 percent of our belongings (we had purged quite a bit since the initial estimate) in what I'd consider RECORD TIME. The entire job took 8 hours which impressed us beyond belief. The team was considerate and careful in moving our furniture, and paid close attention to all walls, corners, banisters, etc. in both the house we were leaving and moving into. They handled our sensitive and fragile items with great care - musical instruments, amplifiers, televisions, etc. I have no doubt I will be reaching out to Oscar's again when we inevitably move again!”

“They did a very good job moving my furniture.”

“I will always use Oscar's for all of my moving needs!! Efficient, Fast, Polite, and Professional.”

“They were on time and very open to work through challenges that arise throughout the moving experience.”

“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.”

“These guys were incredible. I had a very complicated moving situation. I had to have everything out of my house before I closed on the new house. The movers had to stop and load things from two storage units, stop at my sister's house and load things there, get to my house, unload everything in their truck and then unload a POD sitting in the driveway. I know it was very trying. I have hundreds of books and scores of boxes of magazines and files. These guys busted their tails, maintained a positive, cheerful attitude throughout, did extra tasks, and in general went 150 percent. I felt like I'd totally lucked out finding them. I would recommend them in a second.”

“Great team. Hard working crew.”

“Extremely satisfied with the service. The movers were punctual, respectful, and they handled my furniture with great care. This was my eighth move and the best moving experience I ever had. Oscar's Moving Company is the best.”

“Awesome guys. They worked above and beyond the call of duty. Even staying until 7:00 on a summer Friday night to make sure everything was where we wanted it to be. The sales and scheduling people were also great to work with.”

“Great experience. Three guys, true professionals. Very friendly and careful.”

“The movers were friendly, polite and worked extremely hard. There was damage to our bed and minor damage to one wall in our new home but the movers overall did a great job.”

“They were very professional, friendly and courteous.”

“Professional, knowledgeable, punctual. They were very good all around.”

“A good company they try hard to please. No ego-tripping.”

“Great movers. The crew were very polite, great guys. One hundred percent on time. The only lesson I learned from this move was next time I would hire professional piano movers. The crew was not properly prepared to move our piano.”

“I had the unfortunate need to have to move twice in one year for work and Oscar's Moving couldn't have made it easier. It was my first time hiring a moving company and they were friendly, very helpful, worked quickly, and took very good care of my stuff. They put everything back together in my new apartment for me. They even helped with some interior designing. I would absolutely recommend Oscar's to anyone of my friends or family needing to move. Though I am hoping not to move anytime soon, I will absolutely use them again.”

“I actually recommended a few people and they all used Oscars and loved them as much as I did!!! Honestly they made moving so much easier!!!”

“The movers from Oscar's could not have done better! They were prompt, took great care of our furnishings through wrapping properly and moving gently. I would hire this moving company again in an instant!”

“These guys showed up on time, worked hard (no slackers), were polite and pleasant to talk with, and got the job done in the expected time or less. They did three moves for me this summer (2016) and all went well.”

“We had four extremely hardworking guys who worked from morning until night emptying out two full trucks for a new home of four people with lots of toys and an in-law apartment at the same time. Lots of hard, hard work. Thanks to all of them.”

“Great job. Came in ahead of projected time and under estimate. I would use them again and I highly recommend Oscar.”

“These guys were fantastic.”

“Punctual, polite and very careful. No problems at all. Will definitely call them again.”

“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.”

“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.”

“Great workers, very considerate, very careful & polite.”

“They were very punctual and pleasant to deal with. They worked hard and put in a long day. I would recommend them highly to family and friends.”

“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.”

“Great job. Extremely friendly, fast, and hardworking. 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.”

“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.”

“I hired Oscar's for multiple moves as well as long-term storage. All of the moving crews were professional, efficient and easy to work with. I was impressed with the customer service in arranging the moves and especially in resolving an issue I had with retrieving an unidentified table leaf from storage. I would definitely recommend this local company.”

“In general everything went well; the movers were very punctual and polite. There was one box that I do not believe I recovered from storage, however. Luckily there wasn't anything terribly valuable in it.”

“They did a fine job.”

“The guys that moved us were very friendly & kind and did an amazing job fitting it all in. We had A LOT of stuff (4 bedroom house).”

“They lost a glass piece, damaged an expensive task chair and a lamp. Otherwise, crew was great.”

“They took great care with all our household goods. The workers were on time, courteous and very hardworking.”

“The crew was friendly, hardworking and fun! They did a great job!”

“Excellent. They worked with a particularly difficult staircase showing real expertise and professionalism.”

“The movers from Oscar's Moving Company were great! They were professional, incredibly strong and pleasant to work with. I would recommend them as a great value.”

“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.”

“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.”

“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.”

“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!”

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

“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.”

“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 one-bedroom on the first floor to three-floor condo. Quote came within $30 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.”

“The short and sweet of it: excellent scheduling and service by Alan, assessing by Jerry, and the crew was terrific.”

“They showed up when they were supposed to show up. They were very professional. Their workers worked their butts off, and I have no complaints. I liked talking to the person I talked to, and it was a very good experience. We moved two households from North Andover to Redding, and they had to put stuff in two different storage places. It was not a simple move, and they handled it all beautifully. They just did a great job all around.”

“They were on time and professional. They were very courteous and very caring. Overall, it was an extremely positive experience. It's in the process of being a longer move. We moved from where we were to storage, and it's heading up to Vermont, so it's kind of staged out a little bit. I think they put a lot of care into packing our stuff, and we're hoping there will be no damage. So far, right now they would get an A from us.”

“My experience with them was great. They were quick and casual. They didn't make me uncomfortable or anything because I can get uncomfortable with strangers moving my personal things, obviously. They were really nice. Everything was really good. It was a local move from the suburbs to Boston, so it was like a 45 minute to an hour drive. All of my items were taken care of, and nothing was broken. I'd definitely give them an A+. They were really good.”

“They were careful with my furniture, so I felt things got moved in and out of the house, and nothing was damaged. They moved just a few rooms. I was having some construction work done, so things were moved out of the rooms where work was being done to the garage and then returned to the rooms when the construction work was completed. I'd give them an A.”

“They were on time, which was great. They were prompt, and they were very efficient. They did a little job for me. It was not huge. I'd give them an A.”

“They did fine.”

“They were pretty responsive in terms of giving us a lot of phone numbers to call to make sure we always had somebody to answer our questions. I was concerned about the status of my stuff being stored, and they sent me a photo of where it was and the fact that it was all together and protected. I really appreciated that. I moved stuff from a dorm room to a storage unit and then back into an apartment a couple of months later. Nothing was damaged. I'd give them an A.”

“They showed up on time, and they did the job quickly. They moved me to a house. The move was about 10 to 12 miles. Everything was in good condition, and nothing was damaged after the move was completed. I'd give them an A.”

“They were just fast in packing up moving and stuff. It was a pretty short-distance move. They were moving stuff from a home to a home. Nothing was damaged or broken. They handled my things with care. I'd give them an A.”

“They were very helpful, prompt, and on time. Any time I had questions or concerns, they answered my call. It was a small move. It was my daughter, and she just had a couch, a bed, and bureau. It wasn't anything huge. They moved her to a second floor apartment in Boston. I'd give them an A.”

“They were very nice people and hardworking. They were very courteous and careful with the stuff. In fact, we're going to call them again in another couple of months. They moved us into an apartment, and we're moving back into a house now. They moved us maybe ten miles. They were very careful. They were good. I'd give them an A.”

“The sales guy was very proactive and helpful in scheduling and giving me suggestions. All the movers that were at our house were also very nice people and worked really hard. We didn't move too far. It was just a couple of miles and into storage mostly. We have the final part of our move coming up in December, so we're not totally done with Oscar's yet. We liked them enough to keep them. I'd give them an A.”

“I have no complaints. They did everything and then some. They were very fast and very efficient. They didn't break anything. They were very polite. I would certainly recommend them, and I have. They just did loading. They loaded our truck, and we did the transporting ourselves. We did all the packing. We gave them the challenge to fit everything we had into the truck we had, and they did a masterful job getting it packed in there in such a fashion that we were able to get everything in that we wanted in. That was going to be a challenge. If they'd done it haphazardly, they would have never gotten all the stuff in there. They were very concentrated on getting all those boxes fitted so they could take advantage of the space. They did a great job. I'd give them A's on any point.”

“They were very punctual. They were professional, and they did the job right. They were fine all around. It was a 50-mile move. They moved my belongings to a storage unit. There was no damage, and they handled everything with care. I'd give them an A.”

“They were just very good about carrying everything in. Nothing was damaged. They were just very efficient. We were very happy with them. This was a local move. They were bringing something from a storage unit. Everything was handled with care, and nothing was broken. I'd give them an A.”

“I would give them an A.”

“I'd give them an A.”

“It was fine, and they did a good job.”

“I don't think anything in particular stood out. They did a good job and were pretty diligent about the work so that they got it done in a reasonable amount of time. They just moved things a few miles. All my items were in good condition, and nothing was damaged.”

“We've moved with them three times. They're reliable. They work hard, they move quickly, and they meet the price that they quote. We moved about 30 miles. All of our belongings were fine after the move. They actually moved my parents recently, as well. I'd give them an A.”

“Oscar's Moving Company was very efficient and fast, and the workers were very courteous and had pride in their work. They did a good job. They've actually done four jobs for me in the last couple of years. They've moved me from house to house, and they loaded up stuff on a rental truck. They've also done other little moves for me. They were on time and did everything in the time frame they'd said, and it was great. I'd give them an A+.”

“The guys were very good. They worked really hard and really fast. I would hire them again in a minute. They took my stuff to storage and then to the final place. They were tremendous. I'd certainly rate them as an A because they were great.”

“Oscar's Moving Company was fantastic. They were very polite, professional, and efficient. They were great, and it was a very good experience. They earned an A.”

“Oscar's was professional, and everything was returned in its previous form—nothing got damaged. They're reliable, they're professional, and that is why I used them again. This was a local move. Scheduling was excellent, and their response was very fast. I'd give them an A+.”

“They did an excellent job for us. Everything was exactly as agreed. The guys that did it were very pleasant. It was a local move, maybe 20 miles. They handled everything with care. Nothing was broken or thrown around during the move or anything like that. I'd give them an A.”

“They were very good with everything from soup to nuts, from when I first made the phone call to the completion of the job; they were very good at everything they did. The office people, the workers, and the timeliness were very good. I'd rate them A+.”
