Because I was 7 months pregnant at the time, my husband and I decided to hire movers for an across town move. I got several quotes from moving companies within the Twin Cities, and while Local Motion wasn't the lowest price, I felt that the customer service was excellent, and they seemed willing to help me and work with me throughout the process. Unfortunately, that's where the good customer service ended. The movers showed up 2.5 hours later than the 5 hour window I was given, and despite the moving consultant, moving coordinator, and movers themselves all having my number, I was not alerted to the the change in schedule. In addition, despite me voicing my concerns several times about needing two trucks, only one was sent, and after the movers took twice as long as quoted, they were unable to complete the job because the truck was full. To finish the move, my husband and I had to rent a u-Haul and load (and later unload) it ourselves. The Quality Control Manager called me the next day and promised to "make things right" by offering to refund some of the fees incurred from the move, but 3 weeks later, I can't get a hold of him via phone or email. The moving consultant that I had worked with on the front end has done nothing to assist getting the issue resolved. The movers were 2 hours late the next day to unload, and again, took twice as long as quoted. My final bill was nearly double what I was quoted, yet somehow I still had to get a u-Haul myself to finish the move. What's most disappointing is how unhelpful and non-responsive the customer service has been, especially because that was the reason why I choose the company in the first place. I would under no circumstances use Local Motion again.

I was verbally quoted $8-$900 for my move. They took a $50 deposit, so they had my credit card. I moved 2 blocks away. I was charged $1,943. They charged me twice for my deposit and also charged me for a 3 man moving team instead of the 2 man team I got. I was told my furniture would be wrapped. It was not. My $6K couch now has a 10”x10” grease stain on the lower, back corner, where furniture would normally be wrapped. The moving ‘Kids’ tried to hide the stain by not saying anything when they put my couch in place, up against a wall. When I found the stain and called Local Motion to ask why my furniture hadn’t been wrapped, as I was told it would be, they said wrapping is up to each individual moving team. So, if you get the F moving team, you get F service. If you’re going to use this company, think twice, but at least get everything in writing and check your charges after the fact.

Bill Apple was friendly personable and reassuring during the preliminaries, guaranteeing a crew for our planned date. However at 11am the day prior to our move (from a 3 bedrm house mind you and after a month of packing) Bill called to say they no longer had their Phoenix crew! Bill did say he had found another company available (2men and a truck) but I had to call them immediately. I did call the other company and got my move arranged for the prearranged day. And the other company did do a good job as I am sure Local Motion would have done. But the other company ended up costing me $400 more than Local Motion as it was last minute and a weekend!!!. I originally called Local Motion besides for their friendly service for their good rates!!. I had many other companies I could have arranged at an earlier date for less than 2 men and a truck was charging.After the move , I phoned Bill Apple looking for a refund of my $50 deposit to Local Motion and also to see if they would split the difference in cost from 2 men and a truck. Bill Apple did not return my repeated phone calls for almost 3 weeks. At that point he did leave a message that my refund was in the hands of their accounting dept. After another week of not hearing from anyone at Local Motion I then had to have my bank become involved for the $50 deposit!!I have never heard any word from Local Motion about splitting the cost of the extra $400 charge (because it was a last minute and weekend move) from 2 men and a truck!!!!! I had already referred 2 other friends to Local Motion but after this I have retracted any referrals and good opinions about this company.And to date a month later I still have never heard from Bill Apple nor anyone from that company. And they never refunded my deposit. My bank had to!

All throughout my experience with Local Motion, I had every intention of writing a glowing, five-star review. From my interactions with Tony on the phone to discuss our move to the move itself, everything was excellent. Our crew of Calvin, Tony (different guy, I assume), and Marcus were all kinds of fun to work with, and clearly enjoyed working with one another, while also taking good care of our items. They made what is typically a very stressful experience much more enjoyable for us, and I truly appreciate that.The reason for the three-star review is that despite what I thought was a fairly extensive conversation with Tony to discuss the details/logistics of our move when calculating an estimate, I was surprised and disappointed when the actual bill came back significantly higher. Based on the fact that we were going to move some items ourselves, he and I had come up with a fairly broad range of pricing possibilities, depending on how much we had a chance to move ourselves before the big day. I was under the impression that the top end of that range was actually the top end, and was meant to represent a 'worst-case scenario' from a pricing perspective. That turned out not to be the case, as our final bill came in almost $400 higher than the very top end of the estimate, and even further afield from the middle of our estimate range, where I expected we might land.Thus, the middle-of-the-road review. Fantastic overall experience with everyone we interacted with, all of our things appear to have made the trip with no extensive damage to items or home, but much more expensive than we were led to believe. I can cautiously recommend Local Motion, if you are very careful about your quoting conversation, and fine with the price running higher than discussed.

Local Motion Movers ROCK! We had a 2 man team Telly Nickens & Jamaal Tyson & they were AWESOME! It was more like a 2 man army. They worked quickly and efficient yet handled our belongings with care. They were super friendly and personable yet 100% professional. Look no further than Local Motion movers for you moving needs.

We have used Local Motion a number of times now. They are wonderful to deal with! So pleasant and knowledgeable from the first call to the final detail after the move, and for every situation in between. We had to reschedule our time... no problem for them! I had issues with the online forms, Bill walked me through every step! We had misplaced some items - they were extremely helpful and reassuring! The two men that moved us were great. Had me smiling and laughing all through the move 😊 Our belongings were delivered safely and efficiently. Such a great company to work with. They are the only movers we will ever use again. 🥰 Tip top customer service every time. Highly recommended. ❤️❤️❤️

Today Phillip, Henry, and Emmanuel moved us. They were kind, courteous, and extremely professional. From the time they showed up until they left they were there 100% for us. In the new place we changed our minds on furniture placement and they were right there to move it. All the furniture was wrapped and they made use of "speed boxes" to unload all the small stuff, ingenious! I cannot recommend this company enough! If you are debating, stop it and... Use this company. Hopefully I won't have to in the future but will should I need to.Thank you Phillip, Henry, and Emmanuel.

The guys (Anthony, Anthony and Jason) Local Motion crew were punctual, courteous and truly professional movers. They arrived, did a walk through, protected the floor and got busy loading. Transported our belongings to the new house and unloaded in the rooms requested. When it was all done the final bill was as estimated. (Tony was right on.)We would highly recommend Local Motion to anyone considering a move. Dave and Deb Helgeson
As a Highly Successful Real Estate agent I have had experiences with many different moving companies and I Fully Endorse Local Motion. They handled my client with extreme professionalism. Communication was Excellent, Punctuality was superb, Price was Competitive and the movers took great care of my clients personal belongings. A++

The movers were a little bit early which was perfect, they were both VERY hard working and took care to make sure my furniture and apartment were protected. Were super fast, got to the new place and they went right to work unloading the truck, were done faster than the time we paid for. They also helped un pack our cars. Would highly recommend. Final price came in lower than what we were quoted. 5 Stars

Bill Apple was great. Responded quickly to the many questions I had. Was patient when we didn't have a destination address until the last minute. Workers were good but they left boxes in the middle of the rooms and garage so we had to move them so we could make a path. Otherwise it was a good experience and would use them again.

We had an amazing experience with Local Motion! From estimating cost, scheduling, and execution, our expectations were well exceeded! The crew was prompt, informative, careful, and quick! They walked us through every step and made moving a breeze. They were priced fairly and competitively, and they accommodated all of our wishes. We will be recommending Local Motion to all of our friends and family!

We used these guys for our move five years ago and were super happy with them. Great price, on time, efficient and polite. So I set them up to move my 85 yr old mom from her home to an apartment. Again, on time, careful, polite and a great price. If I could give them an extra gold star I sure would.

The crew arrived on time, did a walk-through to see what the job would consist of and then laid cloths to protect the floors. We had done all the packing so all they had to do was lift and pack the truck. Had that done in three hours, made the mid-day drive to the new location and then began the unpacking. Unfortunately, the path from the unloading dock to our new apartment was long and happened to pass the restaurant area during the evening meal - all of which introduced unforeseen delays to thy exceeded the estimate by more than an hour (times the hourly rate times three guys). That was understandable. The guys were unfailingly cheerful, worked hard and I would recommend this team - Sam, Bob & T .

Excellent experience. The weather the night before we moved was miserable, leaving a quarter inch of ice on the streets/driveway/sidewalk. Local Motion's employees handled it without so much as a complaint. The guys were courteous, hard-working and resourceful when it came to moving large items over ice-covered surfaces and into tight spaces. They got a large (and well deserved) tip.

We were totally satisfied with our moving experience with Local Motion. Tony was always available prior to answer any questions even though none of us knew exactly what it all would entail until we actually started to move. But I emailed an itemized list to Tony in advance and so we were as prepared as could be planning for 4 man crew and 2 trucks. The move was a very long day (16+ hours) as we had lots of boxes and furniture and also needed to do a 1.5 hour drive to the new place. But the crew was very efficient, courteous, and upbeat even into the late hours. Nothing was damaged--not one scratch anywhere--and we are fussy with quality items. Everything was handled professionally. We did a complete walk through at the finish and went through all the costs including one month's storage for furniture that needed to be out for staging and it was not far off the estimate-- I truly have a hard time understanding how anyone could have any complaints if they do their own homework ahead of time. The crew was very kind to us and got along well with each other, so given the challenge of such a large move, they kept us very upbeat. All of the crew had worked for Local Motion for many years and was very experienced in what needed to be done quickly yet carefully. And in the end, one of the best parts is we can return all the boxes for total refund as we unpack!!! I don't ever want to move again, but if we do we will certainly use Local Motion if possible! Thank you Local Motion!!
