“I have used oscars moving company before however the crew for this most recent move was unprofessional, had little to no regard for handling my property with care. The crew was unprofessional and at one point even arguing (including racial slurs and profanity) outside my new apartment. Neighbors even came outside to see what was going on, It was a disgraceful representation of the company. It was so bad I place multiple calls to the owner of the company. He was disappointed to hear this and assured me it would be addressed. I asked to be refunded a portion of the cost and he politely declined. I had no fight left in me and wanted to be done with Oscars all together. I was very disappointed with the crew and more importantly when addressed with management very disappointed in their customer service.”

“A treasured family photo got mislaid during the move to storage, or so we discovered two weeks later when we moved from storage to our new home. Tony assured me every item eventually turns up, and it did! He kept it safe for me and offered to ship it directly to me. I decided to pick it up and was so happy to see it again. Tony and the crew are THE BEST and Oscar's will be my first call if I move again.”

“The movers were very nice, however, multiple, expensive pieces were broken during the move. It was very difficult to reach anyone in the office to fix this issue. It did not seem to us that anyone really cared that our furniture was damaged. I understand that we pay by the hr so I appreciate that the movers focus on being quick, however, they should spend more time making sure that they are treating people's belongings better. They also put a hole in a freshly painted wall...”

“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.”

“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.”

“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.”

Review by
10/11/2016

“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.”

“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!”

“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.”

“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.”

“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”

“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.”
