    A FEW WORDS FROM OUR SATISFIED CUSTOMERS

    LOCAL MOVES

    This is the first time anyone moved me and cared about the little things. The movers were so polite and your staff listened to my every concern. The best part was when you called during the move to make sure everything was going as planned. Sometimes I can get a little particular, but I felt you really catered to me and wanted to just say thank you! ---J. Washington

    Thanks so much VIP Moving for making my move easy as can be. It just seem effortless and overall a really pleasant experience. ---- Joyce Dunbar

    I decided to just “give you a try” a few years ago and was really impressed with your dedication and care. Four moves later, you have never disappointed. Keep up the good work! ---Shelly Buchanan

    Your movers were such professionals. They took care of everything down to making sure my plants didn’t lose an extra leaf. It was so amazing. Thanks for letting me know people still care and respect my belongings. After spending all day with them, they were like family. --- Lydia K.

    LONG DISTANCE MOVES

    You guys did an excellent job in moving us to Austin. Moving to a new city was stressful in itself, but you were extremely friendly and knowledgeable and saved us a lot to time with terrific planning. Our family is grateful to know we have the extra time to do what matters most, spending time with each other. ---Timothy Barrow

    Wow. Hands down your guys are the best! After almost 1,500 miles of driving, everything arrived safely and the guys show up with a smile on their face. It was such a pleasure working with them. --- J. Pavlo

    OFFICE MOVES

    The crew was so efficient and respectful. You had our office up and running in no time. It was back to work on Monday as usual. Thanks for the smooth set to make sure every little detail was covered. Thanks VIP, it was a pleasure and we really did feel like we were the “VIPs”. ---Pamela Brooks

    This is the third major office relocation I’ve been involved with and by far, your team made it much easier. I was amazed that the crew went to great lengths to ensure there was no furniture damage and they did a great job protecting the new building as well. ---Robert Bellinger

    INTERNATIONAL MOVES

    I imagined it would be an overwhelming experience to move to another county. I was immediately put to ease after speaking to your relocation manager who assured me she would handle everything at origin and destination including securing all the documentation. She was knowledgeable and answered all of my questions and was just a phone call away. Let her and the crew know that we appreciate everything. It made a huge difference for us. ----Alard Dubois

    It is simply priceless to move from one continent to the next with access to professional, knowledgeable move coordinators. I was given regular updates regarding my shipment and everything arrived as scheduled. --- Maria S.
