I didn’t hesitate to use these movers again! They did a great job!
Response from the owner: We appreciate your kind words Barbara!
The My Guys team was fantastic in our local RVA move. Great communication and coordination early on, Ray did a detailed on site survey and inspection that informed our affordable estimate. Joe was flexible and responsive in scheduling the move to meet our timeline. Purcell led the moving team of awesome and careful gentlemen, Anthony, Tyrone, and Brad. They hustled for nine hours on one of the hottest days of the year, taking good care of fragile items and freshly painted walls. These are my go-to guys.
Response from the owner: Thank you for this amazing review!

Moving Company

Moving for the First Time?

Once you’ve completed your estimate request, you will be provided an Order of Service from the moving company, which is an agreement outlining the services they’ll provide, the estimated cost, moving dates, and other details. On the day of your move, your moving company will carefully load all your belongings and possessions onto our truck before transporting them to your new location. Once your belongings are loaded, you will be given a Bill of Lading, a legally binding document that is a receipt of your goods and a contract for their transportation. Your moving crew will then carefully unload and arrange your belongings. As they unload your items, each item will be checked off the Bill of Lading. To ensure you are completely satisfied with your moving experience, the move will end with a comprehensive walk-through and feedback session to verify all your items are in good condition and accounted for.

Do Moving Companies Provide a Comprehensive Estimate Detailing All Costs and Services?

Yes, moving companies generally provide free estimates detailing their costs and services. However, it’s crucial to check for hidden fees that may be buried within your costs.  If a moving company doesn’t offer free estimates, that is a clear indication that the moving company is unreliable. Get at least three different estimates from moving companies before finalizing your decision. This way, you can compare costs and choose the moving company that best fits your needs. Make sure that all potential fees are clearly outlined and that you have a clear understanding of your costs before deciding on a mover. Here are a few tips when comparing estimates:

  • Compare Services: Ensure you’re comparing similar services across different companies to get a fair comparison.
  • Understand the Coverage: Check what’s included in the estimate, such as insurance coverage and any additional fees.
  • Read the Fine Print: Look for any clauses that might indicate additional costs under certain circumstances.

At My Guys of Richmond, we are committed to providing an estimate that encompasses every aspect of your move, detailing all costs and services involved. Our approach is one of honesty and transparency, allowing you to plan your move without worrying about unexpected fees or charges.

In the words of owner Dave Tindall, “We understand that moving is a significant life event, and our goal is to make this process as smooth and stress-free as possible.” By providing clear, comprehensive estimates, My Guys can help you move forward with confidence, knowing exactly what to expect every step of the way.

Do Moving Companies in Richmond, VA Offer Both Local and Long-Distance Moving?

If the moving company is a “full-service” moving company, you can expect them to offer both local and long-distance moving services. According to MoveBuddha, “Full-service moving companies handle every aspect of the moving process.” However, it’s important that you verify that the company has a valid state and USDOT license before you choose them as your mover. A valid state and USDOT license indicates that the company meets the necessary legal requirements and regulations to move locally and across state lines.

My Guys RVA offers local, long-distance, and international moves. As an interstate agent of Wheaton World Wide Moving, My Guys of Richmond has access to hundreds of agents coast-to-coast who are ready to provide exceptional moving services and expertise during your long-distance move.

Does The Moving Companies Have Packing Services and Supplies, and at What Cost?

Many full-service moving companies offer packing and unpacking services at an additional cost. However, it’s important to note that not all moving companies offer packing services, so double-check with the company first. Packing prices can also vary depending on the value, quantity, and size of your belongings. To avoid any surprises or hidden fees, request an estimate in advance.

My Guys of Richmond offers a range of packing services and supplies to ensure your belongings remain safe during your move. Our packing team will arrive a few days before your move to start packing your items. In the words of owner Dave Tindall, “Our packing services are tailored to align with the needs of your move, giving you a truly stress-free moving experience.” To learn more, check out the Packing Services Page.

Are Moving Companies in Northern Virginia Licensed and Insured? What is Their USDOT Number and State License Number?

According to Boss Magazine, “Licensing is a form of regulation where a governmental authority gives permission to a company to conduct business. This ensures that the company meets certain standards and complies with laws and regulations.” Moving companies in Virginia are required to obtain a state license for local moves and a USDOT license for long-distance moves. The USDOT license, issued by the United States Department of Transportation, allows moving companies to operate and provide transportation services across state borders. These licenses ensure that both the clients and their belongings remain safe during the moving process. Be sure to confirm the moving company’s USDOT license using the Federal Mover’s Database Lookup, and look for their state license as well.

My Guys of Richmond is fully licensed and insured. We operate under USDOT license number 2455961. Our Virginia Intrastate for Hire Certificate number is #614, and our Local for Hire Permit number is #3633. We also maintain general liability and workers’ comp insurance to ensure all our employees are safe.

Are the Movers Trained and Experienced?

When looking for moving companies, it’s crucial to ensure that they only employ background-checked movers with adequate training and experience. Avoid moving companies with a history of relying on temporary movers, as they may lack experience in handling your belongings with care.

At My Guys of Richmond, our extensive training program ensures that all our movers are adequately trained for every type of move. Our team is also completely background-checked, ensuring the utmost security and trustworthiness throughout the moving process. As owner Dave Tindall said, “We aim to provide you with a safe and seamless move, and the experience of our crew allows us to do that.”

How are the Online Reviews of the Moving Company?

To ensure that you choose a high-quality moving company, take the time to read the online reviews left by previous customers. According to Power Reviews “98% of shoppers say reviews are an essential resource when making purchase decisions. Nearly half (45%) of consumers won’t purchase a product if there are no reviews available for it.” Be sure to focus on recent reviews, as they are more likely to reflect the current state of the company’s services and team. It’s also important to only look for moving companies with positive reviews. Positive reviews that highlight professionalism, reliability, and customer satisfaction are great signs in a moving company.

As we continue to strive to improve, our goal is to maintain the trust of our clients by consistently providing top-quality moving services. View all of our Google Reviews here.

What is the Moving Company's Policy on Items Damaged or Lost During the Move?

According to federal regulation standards, all moving companies must offer basic liability coverage at no additional charge. This type of coverage, also known as Limited Liability Coverage, provides customers with 60 cents per pound per item of coverage. However, most moving companies also offer full value protection at an additional cost. According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), “Under Full Value Protection, your mover is responsible for the replacement value of lost or damaged goods in your entire shipment. This is the more comprehensive, but also more expensive, option for protecting your belongings.”

We offer both limited and full-value protection options. This allows you to choose how you want to be covered in the unlikely event of damaged or lost items. Choosing the right protection plan is crucial. While Limited Liability Coverage offers basic protection without an extra fee, Full Value Protection provides a more robust safety measure for your valuables. We recommend assessing the value of your items, considering both their monetary and sentimental worth, to decide which option best suits your needs.

We know that moving can be stressful, and ensuring the safety of your belongings is a significant part of that stress. Our team is here to provide you with all the information and support you need to make informed decisions about protecting your items during the move. If you have any questions about our policies or need assistance choosing the right coverage, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
