Testimonials of Our clients
I have moved 3 times since 2015 and I have dreaded it every time afterwards due to let downs and unreliable people. TODAY however changed everything Jordan and Kelvin went beyond above and beyond, they made any issues that arise feel irrelevant and adjusted so amazingly. Literally cannot form how grateful I am into words, if I have to move or need something moved will be requesting them only, they have a fan for life

Great Customer Service!!By far some of the best customer service I’ve experienced since moving back AL a year ago! The entire staff is professional and has great bedside manner. I had a small move with less than 10 items, and they were very flexible in making sure we stayed within the timeframe that I was quoted. Derek stayed in touch with me for months to see if I had found a mover, and was persistent to earn my business. I’m also quite fond of Kristy who has incredible soft skills and went above and beyond to make sure I was happy, and the movers were very courteous and professional as well. I’m pleased with the outcome of my experience.

As a military family, we have moved countless times with countless negative experiences, such as missing items and damaged furniture. However, Dashawn, Kanoa, Kaliyah were remarkably considerate, efficient, and careful during the entire 6 1/2 hour process. They wrapped furniture in both a blanket and plastic wrap, they kindly moved boxes to the correct room, and I never once saw them using their cell phone for personal reasons!!! Request this crew! Also, the initial experience with the office staff was pleasant. They were responsive and communicated professionally. Military discount was a nice touch!

I want to start by saying we didn't know we could move in our house until the day before we needed unloaders & nobody could help us but This side up did & sent 3 men not just 2. From the start of communication on the phone with Derek until the last phone call with Matthew everyone was very professional & nice & just wanted to makes us happy in this very stressful time because we've definitely had alot of hiccups since October trying to move back to Alabama from Georgia. The 3 young men that unloaded our uhaul were amazing, Tye, Tyler & Asa thank you so very much for all of your hard work, you were very respectful, courteous, professional & just all around great young men. I would recommend this company to anyone for any of your moving needs! Thanks again guys!

Asa, Nick and Dylan moved our furniture and boxes from storage into our new home. They worked safely and efficiently and didn’t waste time. They were careful with our belongings and we didn’t have any damage. They put furniture together and placed it where we wanted it. These young men were very pleasant to work with and were very professional. This wasn’t the first time that we hired This Side Up. Their crews and service have always been superb.

We had the most fantastic experience with Asa, Jordan, Christian, and Marquis for our in-town move. They packed us up, moved us out, moved us in to our new home, and had our furniture re-built in about 8 hours. All of our items were packed carefully and none of our items had any damage. Cannot say enough good things about their professionalism and work ethic! Will definitely return for any future moves.

I was stressing over a 600+ mile move, but This Side Up made it the easiest move of my life. The price was reasonable and every bit of my furniture was wrapped in moving blankets and then plastic wrapped. All of my belongings arrived in perfect condition and right on schedule. Shoutout to my movers Alec H and Dashawn for being quick, careful, and fun and friendly too! I can't give enough praise for how well everything went.

I can't say enough good things about This Side Up. We found out about them via a mailer postcard. Just so happens we needed a moving company to help get some of our things from Madison to Athens. Anyone who has moved knows what a pain and time consuming job it is. Jordan, Kenneth, and Nate did a great job! My back was sore by just by watching them lift the heavy things. Once we move again in a few months, hopefully for the last time, we're giving this company a call! We were very pleased!
12:47 04 Oct 22
The guys were the best. Quick, easy, professional but with a sense of humor. 10/10 would recommend and will be using again!!
14:52 29 Sep 22
Nice website, easy to navigate. When I got a quote, there were a bunch of fees for missing TV boxes, computer monitors and to move a small apartment 7 miles. The quote of six hours seemed excessive, so I went with a competitor. Who can do it in under 4. When I moved these things in two years ago, it took me less than three hours. I didn’t understand and over quoting. 🤷🏼♀️

Awesome company and great guys. Brandon, Dylan, Tye and Ken from this company helped us move recently to our new house. They had great attitude, were respectful and very hard working. They were highly dependable and did their job with perfection with the least supervision from us. I appreciate them and wish them good luck in all future endeavors! I highly recommend these guys and this company if you are looking for movers and packers or just for storage.

Alec, Kalai and Justin did an excellent job for us. Very hard working and courteous. Would definitely use again!
15:50 29 Aug 22
They did a great job at not damaging any of our items. The price was the best in the area. The guys that took apart our dining table lost the screws but Mike made it right by sending us a check for $500 even though he was only liable for $80 according to the insurance. That is great customer service. Thanks so much Mike. Please thank all the guys for a smooth and stress free move. We highly recommend this company for your next move.
21:56 22 Aug 22
We experienced excellent service from this company from booking the move through the completion of the move. Kenneth and Joey were very hospitable, professional and took great care when moving our contents. I can't say enough good things about this company! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS COMPANY!
22:01 10 Aug 22
We needed a mover to help get some things into a new place recently purchased. Richard and his partner not only helped us get the items in but helped us also put things in the right place. They were quick, efficient, professional and nice. I can't recommend a better moving company. For your next move, call these people - I know we sure will!!

Alvin and Kala'i were awesome movers! My fiancé and I are moving in together so we had items from her apartment being moved into my apartment and then items from both of our apartments that needed to be moved into storage or thrown away. They were both very professional and friendly and got everything completed in a timely fashion. Thank you so much!
22:28 31 Jul 22
Super company. Great office staff Derrick and Kristi. Respectful, hardworking, careful with my furniture. Alvin, Justin, Clay, and Noah, were just exactly what you would need for help moving!! Only thing I didn't care for is they cannot go into attics to pull down boxes. Would have given 5 star otherwise.
11:58 31 Jul 22

Best movers ever! First of all, their estimate was right on the money. They didn’t try to charge you more at the end like some moving companies do. Our movers were Zeek and “D”. They were amazing! Like well run machines! Fast and efficient! We were impressed! Would highly recommend these guys!

We moved last week and had two great groups of movers. On Monday, Alec, Kylen, Kenneth and Manny helped us. On Tuesday, Jason, Vernetto, A.J. and Zach took over. We were so pleased with both groups. They were all very professional and took great care of our possessions. I would strongly recommend This Side Up Moving for your future move.
21:13 23 Jun 22
We could not have been more pleased with the moving services that THIS SIDE UP provided to our family! Our first day of moving included Alec, Kylen, Kenneth, and Manny. Our second day, Jason, Vernetto, A.J., and Zach assisted us with our move. These guys were ALL so very professional, courteous, and extremely knowledgable in the moving process. Thank you guys for everything you did to make a move lots easier:)

Alvin, Asa, Kanoa were fantastic with our move. Super friendly and professional bunch of guys. Would highly recommend them. Thanks this side up moving.
00:25 23 Jun 22
The movers were great— they packed up everything with extreme care, wrapped all furniture and made sure everything stayed clean and undamaged. Both loading and unloading they were quick and super professional. They did a GREAT job! My only gripe is that when all was said and done they did charge $150 over the quoted amount, which was a bummer.
14:18 22 Jun 22
Had a great experience with Cameron, Kylen, and Markese. They were on time, never stopped moving and on a 95 degree Alabama day! It was a pleasure working with This Side Up and these gentleman. Thank you all!Ashley and Mike
00:17 22 Jun 22
Moving with This Side Up was such a great experience. We used them for each of the several days of our move. The guys, Alec, Kylen, Kenneth, and Manny were so helpful. We also had great help from another group of guys, Jason, Vernetto, AJ, and Zach. We would not have been able to make our move without them!
03:32 21 Jun 22
Cameron and Juster are the greatest. Thank you so much for assigning them to my move. They are some of the most respectable young men I have had the pleasure to meet and I will definitely ask for them again for any moving needs. This Side Up Moving has my vote 👍 and rocks!~ Vera & Laura
