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!

Local Movers in Richmond, VA

Moving for the First Time?

On the day of your local move, your professional movers will arrive to load your packed and labeled belongings onto the moving truck. The movers then transport everything to your new location, where they unload your possessions, placing them in the designated rooms according to the labels on your boxes. After unloading, you will conduct an inspection to check for any potential damage during the move. Once all items are accounted for and inspected, you sign off on the delivery, marking the completion of the movers’ service.

Who are the Most Reliable Local Movers in Richmond?

Finding the best Richmond movers depends on various factors, but there are a few questions to ask when looking at a moving company to help narrow down your options to find movers you can trust. These include:

  • Are They Independently Owned or a Chain Moving Company?
  • Do They Have the Proper Licenses Displayed Prominently On Their Website?
  • How Recent is Their Latest Google Review? Is Their Overall Google Review Score High? How Many Google Reviews Do They Have in Total?
  • What Accreditations Do They Have, and What Awards Have They Won? These should be displayed on their website.

With these points to look for, you can create a shortlist of movers to request estimates from. According to Consumer Reports, “Be suspicious if an estimate is unusually low or if the moving company provides an estimate over the phone or online without sending a representative to scope out the job. It may be a sign of a scam.” We recommend getting at least three estimates for your local move. Start that process today by getting your first free estimate today with My Guys Moving & Storage by filling out our free quote form.

How Much Do Richmond Local Moving Services Cost?

According to moveBuddha, “The typical cost for hiring movers in Richmond, VA is $100 per hour with a total move cost ranging from $500 to $3,432, on average. If you’re moving out of Virginia, the cost of hiring long-distance movers in Richmond depends on where you’re moving.” However, the price for a local move varies drastically based on your needed services, so you may pay more or less than the estimate above.

Some movers will give you a rough estimate quickly, sometimes over the phone, but this is subject to change. You should look for a moving company that surveys all your items to create an accurate estimate that reflects your needs.

When you contact My Guys, you can coordinate with us to schedule an in-person, in-home survey. Get your moving estimate today by filling out our online form or calling us at (804) 744-2400 to schedule a survey.

How Quickly Can Local Movers Pack and Transport My Belongings?

The speed at which local movers can pack and transport your belongings depends on several factors, including the size of your home, the volume of items being moved, and the distance between your old and new locations. Typically, a small to medium-sized home can be packed and moved locally within a day or two. However, the process may take longer for larger homes or moves requiring special handling. Make sure you discuss timelines with your moving company to clearly understand how long your move will take.

At My Guys Moving & Storage, we pride ourselves on our efficiency and punctuality. We understand that time is essential when moving, so we’ve streamlined our packing and transportation processes to ensure a swift move. We’re committed to providing efficient services and can often deliver an estimate within 24 hours. Our flexible scheduling includes Saturday availability to accommodate your specific timing needs. For last-minute moves, check out more information here.

According to owner Dave Tindall, “Our experienced team can handle moves of any size, ensuring that your belongings are packed, transported, and unpacked as quickly and safely as possible. We work closely with you to understand your needs and customize our services to fit your timeline.”

Are Richmond Local Moving Companies Licensed and Insured?

In Richmond, like in most places, legitimate local moving companies must be licensed and insured. According to Boss Magazine, “Hiring licensed and insured residential movers is essential for a successful move.” This ensures that the moving company is legally authorized to operate and provides financial protection against damage or loss of your belongings during the move.

When choosing a moving company, verifying their licensing and insurance status is crucial to safeguard your possessions and peace of mind throughout the moving process. For local movers in Virginia, look for the Local for Hire Permit number for your potential movers. Any trustworthy moving company will prominently display their licenses at the bottom of their site. You can verify a moving company’s USDOT license by looking in the FMCSA Moving License Database.

My Guys Moving & Storage is fully licensed and insured, adhering to the highest standards required by law. Our Local for Hire Permit license number is #3633. We are fully insured, with General Liability and Worker’s Comp. We also carry the following licenses:

  • US DOT #2455961
  • Interstate MC #848140
  • Virginia Intrastate for Hire Certificate #614

How Can I Find Customer Reviews and Ratings of Local Moving Companies?

Customer reviews and ratings are very valuable resources when selecting a local moving company. They provide:

  • Insights into the experiences of previous customers.
  • Highlighting the quality of service.
  • Professionalism.
  • Overall satisfaction.

You can find these reviews on various platforms, including the company’s website, social media pages, and third-party review sites like Yelp, Google, and the Better Business Bureau. However, the most trustworthy are those from third-party review sites since the reviews come directly from the customer.

At My Guys Moving & Storage, we take pride in the positive feedback and high ratings we’ve received from our customers. “Our commitment at My Guys to exceeding our customers expectations is reflected in the numerous testimonials available on our website and popular review platforms,” says owner Dave Tindall, “We encourage all potential customers to read our Google Reviews to get a sense of the quality service and customer care we provide.”

Do Richmond Local Moving Companies Offer Any Guarantees or Warranties?

While not all moving companies offer guarantees or warranties, many reputable movers do provide some form of assurance to demonstrate their commitment to service quality and customer satisfaction. These may include guarantees on moving dates, price quotes, and even compensation for delays. It’s important to inquire directly with the moving company about any guarantees or warranties they offer.

At My Guys Moving & Storage, we stand behind our services with solid guarantees and warranties designed to put your mind at ease. We ensure that you never receive any hidden costs during your move. We can provide an accurate pricing quote by conducting an in-depth estimate survey with you. Owner Dave Tindall says, “Our transparent pricing means that your move comes with no surprises. Our commitment to customer satisfaction is central to our service philosophy, ensuring your moving experience is smooth and stress-free.”

How Am I Covered if Items are Damaged or Lost During the Move?

Most moving companies offer some level of liability coverage for your belongings in the event of damage or loss during the move. You will typically have two options for moving valuation: Limited Valuation Coverage and Full Value Protection Coverage. Limited Liability Coverage is usually included at no additional cost, but it only requires the moving company to compensate you 60 cents per pound per item lost or damaged.

Full Value Protection provides a more comprehensive level of coverage for an additional fee. According to the FMCSA, “Under Full Value Protection, your mover is responsible for the replacement value of lost or damaged goods in your entire shipment.” It’s important to understand the coverage options available and select the one that best suits your needs.

At My Guys Moving & Storage, we do everything we can to minimize damage to your belongings, but we also do what we can to keep you covered. That is why we offer Moving Valuation, which is the moving industry’s equivalent to insurance. We offer a wide range of coverage options to suit different needs and budgets. From Limited Liability Coverage to Full-Value Protection, our team works with you to ensure that your possessions are protected to your satisfaction. If you need to file a claim with us after your move, please contact your Dedicated Moving Specialist.

Can Local Moving Companies Accommodate My Specific Moving Schedule?

Flexibility is key when moving, as every customer’s schedule and needs are unique. Most local moving companies strive to accommodate specific moving schedules, offering services such as weekend and evening moves to fit your timeline. However, discussing your schedule with the moving company in advance is essential to ensure they can meet your needs. The earlier you schedule your move, the better your chance of securing your desired moving date.

At My Guys Moving & Storage, we understand that flexibility is crucial for a successful move. That’s why we offer customizable moving solutions, including the ability to accommodate moves on weekends and evenings. “Our team works closely with you to understand your schedule and logistics, ensuring that we provide a moving solution that fits your unique individual needs,” says owner Dave Tindall, “We aim to make your move as convenient and stress-free as possible, tailored to your timeline.”

To ensure that you get the date you want, reach out in advance to get scheduled. The sooner you reach out, the more likely we are available on the date or when you want to move.
