  • Long-Distance Relocation
  • Corporate and Commercial Moving
  • Moving Quotes
  • Packing and Unpacking Services
  • Loading and Unloading
  • Storage Services

Small Moves

Five Movers will get you in touch with a number of different moving services, allowing you to find the best deal on your small move. This might entail just a handful of hours of labor and some basic packing materials.

Long-Distance Relocation

Five Movers also has a number of connections to licensed long-distance movers. A number of these companies are full-service movers that will help with the packing, unpacking, loading, and unloading of your belongings during the moving process. Some of them also provide you with access to storage services. These services could include a moving container in which you can pack and store your belongs, storage space in a warehouse until the time of delivery, or short-term truck storage.

Corporate and Commercial Moving

Five Movers provides you with a number of moving quotes from varying companies so that you can choose the best fit for your business moving needs. It is not uncommon that a moving crew will be deployed to help with the packing, loading, storage, delivery, unloading, and unpacking of furniture and other office supplies. When choosing your corporate or commercial relocation services, make sure that all of the small details are taken care of within the allotted moving quote before moving forward.

Moving Quotes

Five Movers wants to make the moving process as easy as possible for those who find themselves in positions in which they need to relocate. This is done largely through providing moving quotes from a handful of moving companies to help users find the companies whose moving costs are not only in their budget, but whose relocation services also fit the bill. Getting an online quote is simple and can be done on the company website. You simply enter the zip codes from/to your moving locations, the date you will be moving, the size of the apartment or home you are moving from/to, your name, email, and telephone number. You are guaranteed to receive up to four quotes from local movers within a matter of seconds.

Packing and Unpacking Services

For an extra cost, you can pay for a moving crew to come into your home, pack your personal belongings and household goods, and then load everything into the moving truck and take it away. When your things are delivered, unpacking services are sometimes available as well. A number of these companies will also provide you with the packing supplies that you will need so that you do not have to go out and find them yourself.

Loading and Unloading

After packing has taken place, the next step is to load all of your belongings, furniture, and household goods into the moving truck. When you hire movers, you should make sure that this service is provided as part of the company's services. It can be physically very taxing to load and unload heavy boxes and pieces of furniture and if you are not careful, you can hurt yourself.

Storage Services

When moving, it is not uncommon to have a small waiting period between the time that you move out of your old space and when you can move into your new space. That being the case, it is important to find a moving service that provides storage options. Many moving companies offer storage services ranging from short-term storage services to long-term storage options.

The Bad

  • Pricing
  • Lack of Information
  • Third Party Involvement

Pricing

One of the challenges of using Five Movers is that the pricing estimates that are given are often low. Since Five Movers does not work directly as a broker for these moving companies, it is difficult to know how trustworthy the moving quotes given on the site are. If you are looking to use this service, it could be advantageous to you to wait for the quotes from other companies to get a handle on what your move is going to cost.

Lack of Information

The Five Movers website provides users with very little information. Not only are you unable to see what kind of services will be provided, but you are also unable to find any information for the companies that might be recommended to you. Considering that this service is meant to help you find the best mover for your move, it would be beneficial to include more information about the services that may be provided to help consumers make more educated decisions.

Third-Party Involvement

When working with third parties, it is important that you remember that Five Movers will not take responsibility for any damages to your belongings or changes to pricing and fees. Once you have selected a moving company recommended by Five Movers, it is no longer responsible legally for anything that happens between you and the moving company you have selected.

The Bottom Line

Five Movers has a unique spot in the moving industry as it is neither a moving service nor a moving service broker. If you are looking for a moving service in your local area to help you with your upcoming move, we recommend using the online moving quote generator to see which companies reach out to you with offers. If you are hoping for more specific moving services from this company, you will be disappointed. After getting the four promised quotes from third-party movers, research each of those services to see which of them will best fill your needs.

"We will not spam you or sell your data" I have gotten HUNDREDS of calls from misc companies, some of which even continuously after agreeing to take me off their list. I moved far away VT years ago but kept my VT number because it's a great way to identify spam callers and number spoofers, as nobody I actually know in VT would be an unknown contact. Almost every single number that has called has been one. I have been bombarded with emails, calls, and texts for 2 weeks now. Do not fill out their form, you are essentially signing up for a demon dialer of never-ending overpriced quotes.

I was looking to relieve the stress of moving and wanted to hire a moving company. Searching online I came across Five Movers website and thought it would be helpful to get a few quotes. Big mistake!! I’ve been bombarded by dozens of companies for the past few days via email and phone.

I entered my info and immediately had about 15 moving companies calling and messaging me. I called them and asked if they could take my name off the list pot politely. And the guy said yes and just hung up

Called, I was very polite. The man that answered quoted an outrageous fee. Then promptly hung up on me when I said "that sounds way too high". $1600 for a 1 bedroom, 1 hour and 10 minute's away. No appliances.

This company is a total scam. They request your information under the pretense of suggesting five moving companies, but it's been two days and I'm still bombarded with calls, messages, and emails. Attempting to remove my information or unsubscribe from their website is an exercise in futility – their so-called solution is just a ploy. I even dialed their number to cancel, and it was beyond ridiculous. Surprise, surprise, they still tried to pry my details from me in the guise of assisting with finding companies. DO NOT hand over your information.

Some arrogant, vile mannered guy called, asked what and when I would need to move things and when I attempted to say I'd call back when I knew for sure what all I'd be moving, he said "You should just sell your (word for crap) and start a new life!" and just hung up! Dudes a real piece of work! Don't bother using these people, they are GARBAGE!
