Jay was great in setting up the move (2 stops plus the final destination). Tracy and Drew were punctual, efficient, and professional; they were able... to get the couch through a tight doorway I was almost certain wouldn't fit. The move came in under estimate. I would certainly use EverSafe again.read more
Great moving company! Very courteous on phone. Scheduling a moving date was easy and available. This company has their business together. They... explain everything in detail from fees to insurances and if you’re in the need of moving boxes. Just very helpful. The moving team was very nice and friendly young men who did a wonderful job wrapping & moving out our furniture with care. They worked really hard and fast. We had no issues and by time we was moved out. The price was even cheaper then our first quote . They also set up all of our furniture in new home to desire room we wanted them in. Also assembled back our furniture that had to be taking apart to get out of door. These guys just don’t know how much we really appreciate their hard work. Thanks again and hope to use this company in the future.read more
They came and went without issue and stayed less than budget. Each worker was courteous and knew their job well. I would recommend to anyone. I’m
I’ve used Eversafe for 3 separate moves. They are always prompt, reliable and under estimate. The employees are nice and always very careful. Highly... recommend them for moving.read more

This is my 4th time hiring Eversafe. If you want the best, most professionalMovers hire Eversafe.
EverSafe helped us move in Philadelphia and they were awesome - walked through everything they covered, and the team of Tracey, Fred and Mack were... efficient and wonderful to work with, helped us dis-assemble a tricky bed frame and move things into some tough positions up four flights of stairs! Would definitely use again!read more
Jay was very good on setting up the move and explained things clearly. Movers Mack and Chris arrived on time and worked efficiently while taking care... to protect our furniture. Highly recommended.read more
The EverSafe team led by Fred for us was incredible! We had them pack our things and move us across town. The packing team was lovely - they were on... time, super careful with all of our items, and they were done fairly quickly (6 hours for a 1600 sq ft apartment). We had water, gatorade, and bagels on hand for them and they were very grateful.Moving day was wonderful. Despite challenging access to our building, the team was calm, chipper, and got to work quickly. They brought 5 people and two trucks so were able to move a lot in a short amount of time. The team reassembled all furniture and hand-carried boxes (which ensured that NOTHING was broken!). We have a lot of large, difficult to move furniture and the team made it look easy.Hands down the best move we've had (7 moves in 17 years). Highly recommend this company for your next move!read more
I had a great experience with EverSafe Moving Co! They gave me a free quote estimate two months before my move and was transparent about the process.... When it was time for me to move, the movers were professional and came in time. They were efficient, quick, and handled everything with care. If I were to make a move again, I will definitely go back to EverSafe Moving!read more
I was planning to move to a smaller home and had obtained multiple moving company estimates—- all starting at $1150. I found EverSafe Moving online,... saw that they were a local business and gave them a call. Their original quote was $749 - final cost was $536. Jay was great to work with over the phone. The two movers, Tracy and Drew, were terrific. The start time given was 9.30am and they were on schedule. They made a nice appearance- were polite, professional and hard-working. Very respectful of furniture and property. Made a stressful experience a whole lot easier. I would highly recommend EverSafe Moving Co. to anyone preparing to move to a new home!read more
These guys can move! And some of them are just down right beautiful! Especially the curly haired one.
Everything ran so smoothly with our move!! The movers arrived on time, were friendly, and answered all of our questions as the day went on. They... wrapped all of the furniture, disassembled things they needed to, and then put it all back together again in our new place! They even put things in the rooms that we needed the boxes in rather than just putting them anywhere. They were very efficient and finished about 30 minutes ahead of schedule. The day would not have run as smoothly without them and we would definitely hire them again!!! Thanks so much for taking a ton of the stress out of a stressful day!read more
It's my first time hiring a moving company so I was skeptical and thought it was expensive. It is worth it. If you have a lot of strong friends to... help and not much going on, then sure, move yourself. I was dealing with a lot of personal and house stuff and just the thought of moving all the furnitures make me tired, so this is money well spent on keeping my sanity.The initial communication was smooth and simple in getting the quote and setting things up. The movers came 30min earlier than the time window but kindly waited. They were very professional and efficient. The minimum was 2hrs and they finished before then so they put together my new office chair together for me as well. They are careful with my furnitures when going up the stairs. I was skeptical so I asked for just in-house/one-location move mostly for furnitures up different floors. If there's a next time I'd totally go with EverSafe again, and save myself the trouble by having them do the whole packing/traveling to new location thing as well.read more
Extremely neat and careful. Highly recommend!!
The team that helped me move Sat 4/1 were absolutely the best.They had me moved in under 2 hours.I will definitely recommend your company!
Best movers I have ever used - twice now. The experience was great from the beginning with a well-designed and informative website. The office is... very responsive and answered all my questions. The estimate was spot-on, with my moves finishing 6 and 30 minutes under estimate even with multiple stops and an intercity move. The movers were very efficient and polite, and they wrapped all furniture in blankets which other movers don’t bother with. I would definitely not hesitate to use Eversafe again in the future if I move back to Philly.read more
Awesome professional company to work with from the first call to the completion of your move! I’ve used them twice !
We made a huge move from the Philadelphia area to costal South Carolina and our experience with Eversafe was exceptional. They packed over 500 boxes... in 2 days, loaded 4 trucks on day #3, made the long drive on day #4, and delivered everything on day #5 (Friday to Tuesday!) We had the same crew throughout the entire process. I was so impressed with the guys who were on ‘our team’. They were great - professional, careful, polite, etc. and never heard any ‘off color’ words, remarks, or joking around; they were awesome! Eversafe has some quality employees! I’d recommend Eversafe if you’re looking for a professional, careful, and quality mover. A+read more

How do you make moving not terrible? Hire Eversafe. At least the part they handle will be stress-free.
Everyone treated us with respect and our move was flawless. Thanks so much
I live in Florida and was helping my son arrange a move in Philadelphia. His last move was terrible and the movers were slow and there were lots of... added surprise fees at the end of the move. EverSafe Moving is very thorough with their quotes, we felt very comfortable booking them because they are so thorough. We went over every piece of furniture, the number of boxes with Rob, the owner, and then he confirmed everything and sent a detailed quote. They even got us information on getting a permit with the city so no tickets were given for blocking the street. All went very smoothly, the two movers loaded quickly and efficiently, and the quoted price ended up being less than expected. My son was very happy with their service.read more
Second time using EverSafe Moving Co. Great company. Professional and easy. Highly recommend. They are fantastic and affordable
Very professional company. Sent a quote and made sure we understood everything on the quote. We had the A Team for the move. Both guys were super... nice and very helpful. I would recommend EverSafe to everyone.read more
Best moving company!! Our movers were friendly, professional, helpful, and so nice! Process was easy and price was great! Highly recommend Eversafe!!
From my initial phone call to the final walk-through of furniture & box placement in our new home, Rob & the rest of the EverSafe Moving Co. team... were incredible! My husband & I have gone through several cross country moves and EverSafe is BY FAR the best company we’ve ever used!Prompt replies, flexible scheduling (PODS multiple delays in delivery which caused a move in our move-in date) & a highly professional move-in team who handled everything with great care. 10/10 would use again! Thanks, EverSafe, for making a stressful life like moving such a breeze! ☺️read more

They did an extemely good job moving our daughter into her new place in Philly. All items were wrapped before being put on truck, they walked all... the rooms with her to make sure everything she wanted made it to the truck. When moving her things into the new place, they made sure everything was placed where she wanted, unwrapped everything and took the wrapping with them. We were completely satisfied with their services.read more
My experience with EverSafe Moving Co. was great. The movers were professional, patient and super nice. They made what could have been a very... stressful time for me, very smooth and calm. I have moved many times throughout my life so, I know how very stressful it can be. They gave me the best moving experience I have ever had.read more
Amazing experience every time I’ve used them. Quick and fairly priced - would definitely recommend to anyone looking to make their move easier!
Very professional, courteous, puntual and reasonable pricing. Your crew was very careful with the furniture and worked without pausing. Making sure... everything was packed correctly; uninstalling and installing very carefully. I’m so glad I used your service. Thank you for making, what I’m hoping to be my last move, a very simple and memorable one.read more
The response was great. I had a last minute booking with just a few days notice and they were able to fit me in. Quoted a very reasonable price... which was much lower than 2 other moving companies that I called and in the end the drivers billed me even less than the quoted price. The drivers were very professional and really worked hard to move my riding mower which was a must for me and they did it without complaint. I will definitely recommend this company to anyone that needs moving services.read more
My experience using Eversafe excellent.The crew who came were fast, efficient and professional. I would definitely use them again.
Excellent customer service. I had an unexpected chance in my move date, and Rob totally handled it!!!! Lou and Joe also did a phenomenal job moving... all of our furniture!!!read more
EverSafe was incredible! They were quick, efficient, and courteous with our move. They finished ahead of estimated schedule and were extremely... accommodating. Tim, Chris, and Justin were fantastic! They were willing and able to help make our move as quick and painless as possible. From start to finish we were truly surprised at how efficiently the guys worked to make our move seamless and easy. Highly recommend EverSafe!read more
From pick up to empty truck in 2.5 hours . Very professional and. Courteous. I told him where to put everything and that’s where they put it.... Would definitely use it again.read more

I’m glad I called EverSafe. EverSafe was on time and they handled my items with care. The workers were super polite and worked quickly and... efficiently. The price was very reasonable.read more
They were efficient, professional, and friendly. They wrapped all of our items and transported everything with no damage.
I can not praise EverSafe enough!!From the first phone call I knew this was the company for my move. They were polite and responsive. Jay walked me... through a whole home inventory right over the phone, got all the details, asked good questions, and sent me an Estimate right away.I got estimates from many other companies and to be honest, the customer service from the others could use some work.When the time came for the move Tim, Tracey, and Justin were excellent. The guys were polite, punctual, and professional. They offered their judgements, based on professional experience, on how best to move or pack certain items like our 75" TV. All items were handed with care and only one glass arrived damaged and I honestly think that's my fault on the packing side more than anything. The guys had great positive attitudes and it was a real pleasure to be around them.I LOVED how detailed Tim was with the walk throughs. When they first arrived we went room to room, pointing out which items were being moved and confirming it with the packing list. Then at the end of the first location, we did another walk through to make sure they got everything.They confirmed the delivery address and I drove behind them. I will say they are very good drivers who took care to drive in a way that items wouldn't be damaged.When EverSafe arrived at our new home, we did another walk through to show where we wanted certain items and identified our office, bedroom etc. They were very good at placing items in the rooms and checking with us as items were brought in.Once all items were in, Tim made sure we were happy and even took the time to help us move a bookshelf that we changed our minds about.Our entire move only took 3.75 hours and that includes a 50 minute commute between homes.I was blown away with the value. Not only was this the most professional company I looked into, they also had the best and most straightforward pricing. My move came in a staggering $400 below what was quoted and I am in awe. Even if it was 10% over the estimate this service would have been 100% worth it. I can not recommend EverSafe highly enough. If I ever move again you can be certain this is the company I will work with.read more
Our experience with EverSafe was excellent from start to finish. We greatly appreciated their upfront pricing that they list on their website, which... is something the other companies that I looked at don't do. Their pricing is very fair. Our experience speaking on the phone with Rob was very satisfying as he was professional, patient and informative. On moving day, the men that arrived could not have been nicer. Tracy and Josh (I think that's his name) were so friendly, worked quickly, and were very careful handling our items. They were completed with the move ahead of schedule. Due to this, we were refunded a portion of what we were initially charged, which was an extra bonus. We would definitely reach out to them the next time we need to move.read more
The 2 guys who came out to move my furniture were very friendly, they didn't complain at all, they listened carefully to any concerns I had and they... worked quickly without damaging any of my items. I definitely would recommend them.read more

The young men who came to move us were on time, were respectful, & came in ready to work. We did an assessment of what needed to be moved in each... room, & then they proceeded to start the "moving" process. They carefully & efficiently wrapped our furniture & loaded the truck. At our new apartment, they unloaded the truck, put everything where I told them, & were finished before I knew it. They did an awesome job! If I ever have to move again, this company will be first on my list.read more

Great guys, did amazing job. They were very careful with my fragile stuff. They got done early and saved me money!!!! Thanks. Marie
EverSafe handled a complicated interstate move to bring my mother in law closer to us in Philadelphia. We used them specifically because she has an... antique piano, but due to costs and the condition of the piano, we did not want to pursue separate piano movers, The piano must have been about 500lbs and was very difficult to get out of her apartment and we grossly underestimated the amount of boxes she had after 50 years, but the EverSafe movers remained so kind and gentle with us and with her. The move was further complicated because her new building had strict move in timeframe, which we just missed (no fault of EverSafe's, given the amount of stuff/piano!). They were absolutely stunning in handling the building staff and residents and got everything inside within 30 minutes. It was the most amazing thing I've ever seen, those movers were absolutely phenomenal!! We were so apologetic for all the headaches - the stuff, the piano, the building rules - and everyone from the movers to the office staff stayed so positive and so kind. Couldn't say enough good things and I recommend them to everyone I know who's moving.read more
Moving is typically such a dreadful day but thankfully for Eversafe it was such a breeze! So happy with the service. Definitely will be using again... and recommending to friends.read more
I have used EverSafe twice to move. They never disappoint! They can handle any type of move in or out of the city. Their staff are very friendly... and extremely efficient.read more
I highly recommend EverSafe Moving Co. to anyone looking for a hassle-free moving experience. They worked fast.

Chris and Liam are great. They handled everything with extreme care, regardless of the sweltering heat which was 100 degrees.They were friendly,... respectful young men that I recommend highly for your moving needs.Their pricing was competive with other companies, but they gave that little extra touch which made them special.read more
On time, efficient & professional, even came in a little under quoted price.
On time, quick. Professional service. Friendly staff.
Keenan, Drew, and Jeremy were efficient, professional, and worked really hard to make sure all of our furniture was safe. They took the time to take... apart our bed and blanket & wrap anything wood. When everything was moved, they walked us through to see if we wanted anything in another place. When we called to schedule, they gave us an estimate and because our movers were so quick (but also safe), our actual was less than the estimate.read more
They dealt with the craziness of city moving and we’re so fun and upbeat during it all! Would recommend them to anyone!!
Words cannot express how thankful we are to the group from EverSafe that moved us into our new home. They were friendly, professional, efficient and... worked seamlessly as a team. They did a full walk through before the move to go over everything and a full walk through afterwards to ensure that we were satisfied with the service and that all furniture was placed exactly where we wanted it. They also wrapped all of our furniture so it was not damaged during the move. We felt very comfortable trusting them to move all of our things. Without hesitation, I would recommend EverSafe to anyone.read more

Did you know...?
Is There a Difference Between a Quote and Estimate?
Simply put, a quote is an exact price for a job set by the mover while an estimate is the mover’s best guess as to how much it will cost, subject to change. A quote is set in stone, unless there is a variation to your contract, which would include extra work or a change in the scope of a job. There is no such thing as a binding estimate, your contractor can change the price for a variety of reasons.
