“It was absolutely an A+ across the board. They were very friendly. They were absolutely magnificent. Everything that we had ended up precisely where we wanted it. They made sure that it was solved to our needs. They were fantastic. We would absolutely recommend Fairfax Transfer—we'd love to.”
“Fairfax was super fast. They knew how to take apart the furniture that required some care. I used them to pack a pod, so they had to pack things very compactly. I was amazed at what they were able to get in there. They've been great. They're an A.”
“It was wonderful. They asked me all kinds of questions, so I felt very much included. I've never had to do my own move before, and they helped me out with everything. I felt very safe and secure. They were wonderful. They were prompt, and they came exactly when they said they would. They were great.”
“I only had a one-day affair with them. I would say my experience was very positive. I would give them an A+. They came on time, and they did a good job wrapping, packing, delivering, unpacking, and cleaning up. They did better than I expected. I would recommend them at the highest level.”
“They moved me about a year ago. I recall their responsiveness, their professionalism, and their cleanliness. When they said they were going to be here, they were here. I'd rate them an A+, and I'd recommend them at the highest level.”
“I've used Fairfax in Virginia. My experience was great, and I'll tell you why. I've had snow. I wanted to donate some stuff, and the donation place did send their truck, but those guys did not help me. They thought the job was too risky. I told the situation to Fairfax, they sent a couple of shovels with the driver, and they helped me with taking the snow out so it was not risky for everybody. They did the job, and they did it very quickly. I would give them an A++, for everything they did. I would recommend Fairfax.”

“I had a great phone relationship with the woman there. She helped me organize everything, and she held my hand through some tricky stuff that we had to navigate. It was just a great experience—A+.”
“I had a positive experience with Fairfax Transfer. They were very accommodating with the time and the date, and they were very professional. I actually had them do two different moves for me.

I just thought they did a very professional job. They get an A+ from me.”

“They're an A.”
“Fairfax Transfer had a contract with the apartment building I used to live at. Overall, my stuff wasn't lost or broken, so overall, it was a good experience.

“We've used Fairfax Transfer personally, and I also use them through work. They're excellent to work with. They moved me, and for work, they accept our cabinet deliveries. When we're ready for the cabinets to be delivered, Fairfax Transfer delivers them to our jobsite. When they moved me personally, it wasn't a full household. It was the contents that were left. They moved a short distance. We started using them through work first. When I found them, they were the only ones who were able to give me a definite quote. They're the only ones I got warm fuzzies from when I was researching five or six companies. Warm fuzzies are important to me. I'll give them an A.”
“Fairfax Transfer was just excellent. They were very friendly and efficient. They moved some pieces of furniture to another house or two within a 20-mile distance. They were an A-grade service.”
“The people from Fairfax Transfer are compassionate and fast. They did a great job maintaining my belongings, and there were no losses during the move. Everything was packed well. They communicate very well by email, which is how I do it, so it was nice to have that. They helped in an emergency situation, and it was greatly appreciated. They moved my father-in-law's apartment, so it was one bedroom, one living room, and a kitchen. I chose them because they'd been referred on my neighborhood network, and I would use them again. A friend of mine is calling them today to have them move some stuff for her as well. I'd call them an A+ company.”
“Fairfax Transfer did work for us a couple of months ago, and they were very good. I'd grade them as an A.”
“Back in March, Fairfax Transfer helped me move, and then in May, they helped me move back in. Everything was great. They're great—they really do a good job. I'm having new windows put in, so what I had them do was move the heaviest furniture three feet away from the window so the window people can come in and do their work. Right now, I have an appointment with them in the summer to have the furniture moved back. Everything was fine. I got them from the Best Pick Reports website. I'll give them an A.”
“Fairfax Transfer was very prompt. They were moving things from my mother's home. Many of them were somewhat valuable, and some were antiques. The movers took a great deal of care to make sure the pieces arrived without damage. It was a move across town. My family had used them before, so I chose them because we'd used the company previously. It's an A from me.”
“As far as I know, everything seemed to go to plan. It was office storage—Fairfax Transfer moved some office boxes and things from one storage location to the other storage location. I may have chosen them because of a recommendation. Based on what I know, I'd choose an A grade for them.”
“Fairfax Transfer helped me with my move a couple of months ago. They were very receptive to being flexible according to my needs. They were very positive and very receptive to whatever I needed. They were responsive to my needs. Overall, it was a great experience. I wanted to be able to move a lot of the smaller stuff, and they moved all the bigger furniture. I'd say it was 90 percent of everything they moved. It was actually very close, just a couple miles. We went from a town house to a single-family home, and there was a ton of stuff. They get an A—they were great.”
“That was the third time I've used them. I like that they're on time. They do what is requested of them, they do a good job at what they do, and they do the job within the allotted time they say it will take. They completed the job satisfactorily. This most recent time, they moved furniture we bought down the street. I want to give them an A. We're going to be moving again in a couple of months, and we'll probably use them again.”
“The people from Fairfax Transfer were good. They were on time and pretty professional, so it was a good experience. It was an entire apartment, but we did the packing. Fairfax Transfer just did the move. They were pretty good overall. They just moved a couple miles. I think an A grade suits them best.”
“I can't say enough good things about Fairfax Transfer & Storage—they are phenomenal. I've used them for a couple of years, and I know they will get things there in good shape and that we'll be taken care of. They're absolutely the best around. They get an A++.”
“They couldn't have been better. It was the best move we've ever made, and they were fantastic on all fronts. They're a great company. We had a three-level home, and I was amazed at their strength and how quickly and safely they did everything. They just gave us confidence. I would definitely rate them as an A+.”
“Fairfax Transfer & Storage did a wonderful job. They put everything in the right place, and they were very fast about it.”
“They were fantastic, and they had good, efficient workers. They moved my entire home, and they earned an A+ grade.”
“They were pretty good. They showed up on time with all the tools to move the furniture, they wrapped the furniture, and they made it under their three-hour deadline. They were professional and worked enthusiastically to get the job finished right, so I didn't have to use their customer service after the move at all. I signed up, they called me, and I did everything on the phone in terms of scheduling. I would use them again. I had no problems, so I'd give them an A+.”
“Fairfax Transfer & Storage has moved us every time we have moved—four times in the last twenty-five years. Their customer service is incredible. They are on time and they are very cautious. I have never, ever had them break anything. In fact, we moved from a 4,000-square-foot home to an 1,800-square-foot home, and they couldn't bring a lot of things upstairs because the scale of the furniture was totally different. They had to cut the posters down to get things up the stairs, and they did it by themselves and put the posters back after they cut them. You can't even tell that they have ever been cut. I only had a queen-sized box spring, and the owner of the company couldn't get it up the stairs because of the slope of the stairs, so he went out and got two single box springs to fit a queen-sized bed in exchange. He said, 'I will take this one, and you can have these.' Their service is above and beyond.”
“All of my things arrived intact. I think they did work for me before; I used them prior to this time. Their customer service was just as expected. I would give them an A+. They were great.”
