Here are some Moving APT reviews from past customers:
Jairo M. via BBB said:
They use third party movers. In my case I had to pay $250 more to the carries just so I could get my stuff. They did nothing to correct this issue other than give me the runaround to run out the clock until the movers arrived at which point my options were to either pay the extra money or not get my things. I wouldn’t doubt it if many of the 5 star reviews below are fake.
Stephen C. via BBB said:
Moving APT was the best company that contacted us. We spoke to you between five and eight different companies spread out throughout the country. We got the best price per cubic foot from them as well as a team of people that work day and night to make our move a success. The relocation package they put together included all the handling dismantling and assembling of all the furniture items. We got status updates and we’re in constant contact with a representative. We felt confident in them and secure every step of the way.
Moving APT is a good resource for those making moves. You can compare services and find key information on costs, insurance, and storage options. Moving APT also offers packing, auto shipping, and other unique moving services, making them a one-stop shop option for customers.
However, the poor reviews mixed with the FMCSA complaints make it a questionable company for booking moves. Some of Moving APT’s competitors offer all of the same services, but in-house. If you simply want advice on how to begin the process and what type costs to expect, Moving APT can provide that.
