Reliable service

Serge and his crew were some of the most attentive and careful movers. They were prompt, courteous and everything went smooth and in timely manner. I will do my next move with the same crew. Thanks!

pleasant experience

Transporting my stuff with Active was overall good experience. The movers came on time and packed most of the items themselves. We've only had to take our personal items to our car. No damages were made to our furniture whatsoever and it came to NY according to schedule. I recommend using this company for your moves.

Satisfied with the move

My sales rep was very knowledgeable, asked many many questions and finally provided quote which matched the final bill. The pick up moving crew was on time and made everything they could to make the whole thing easier for us. The were great packers as well. The delivery crew was just as good. I am willing to recommend others to use this service.

good service

The mover were on time, they brought a lot of packing supplies and helped us packing and crating our glass items and pictures. Transition took exactly what it had been quoted and all the items arrived in a pristine condition. Delivery folks were also very helpful in sorting our boxes and reassembling our furniture. Great service at a reasonable price.

This was by far the smoothest move for me (and I move a lot). The gentlemen who came to my house were very careful with my furniture and memorabilia and patient to all of my requests. I would without a doubt use this company if I ever needed to.

Active is the worst kind of deceitful, ...

Active Moving has zero honor, zero professionalism, and is the worst kind of deceitful, dishonest operator in this business. I had an awful experience with Active, the worst possible kind and a cautionary tale for other potential customers. I had looked at previous reviews across the internet. For the handful of bad reviews, I chalked it up on inexperienced movers who prepared poorly. I smugly believed that as an experienced mover (I've moved multiple times long distance - Boston-Miami and Miami-Philly), I was better equipped against any surprises. I was wrong. What others described as bait

Raise price multiple times, delayed ...

100% regret using it. We did a lot of research before going with Active moving, even though it quoted a higher price than others. Thought we would avoid pricing scammers (WRONG). Turned out it’s a completely scam and it will try to rip you off on every opportunity. 1. Movers asked for 40% MORE of the agreed price on moving day - we had the exact furnitures, even with 3 FEWER boxes compared to the inventory list NEVER TRUST ANYTHING THEY PROMISED. Ivan gave me a “final price” on phone. He even emphasized this was NOT an estimate but the FINAL PRICE. We had it on voice recording. On the moving day, the movers came in, looked around our stuff, and told me they can only start moving with 40% of what was agreed before. Ivan’s phone was then conveniently unreachable. And the mover simply said the quote was too low and Ivan wasn’t authorized to give a final quote. Final price was decided on the moving day. At that point, we had no other option as we had to move on that day. This is just a gross strategy they use. With Ivan promised again and again on a “final price”, and movers raised the price on the moving day knowing you have no other choice but pay the extra $. 2. Delivery movers asked for more money again - THET JUST WANT TO RIP YOU OFF! We have checked several times with the ‘boss mover’ on the pick-up day if any additional fees are required on the day of the delivery, including those ‘elevator fees’ that sometimes moving company charges, and we got a promise it was indeed the final price, which means there is NO ADDITIONAL COST. We live in an apartment building with trailer access right outside an elevator. The delivery movers asked for $185 more on “elevator fee” (we need to pay for using our elevator???) plus “long carry” from the elevator to apartment (it’s a flat surface like in hotels). We had it on video record as this is supposed to be all included in the contract. He just said this is his rule. No extra money means he will only have the furnitures delivered in front of the elevator. 3. Our TV was BROKEN! Back on the call with Ivan, he said explicitly that the price includes a TV crate where unlike other moving company who would charge $50 for a TV crate, it is inclusive in the price - we also had it on voice recording. The movers on the moving day didn’t have a TV crate for our TV. The most absurd thing is, we found out the TV was broken when the delivery mover was still around. He still dare to ask for more money and just told us to call the company to claim insurance. And when we called, the women on the phone told us that - they will compensate for us our completely useless broken TV by 60 CENTS PER POUND, with 90 days processing time. On the pickup day, they will purposely ask you to sign on multiple places in a hurry, including one place to waive a standard insurance coverage, and never told you anything. Be aware that the “insurance policy” they have on your stuff is BY

Active Moving cannot be trusted

Avoid Active Moving Company. I arranged for my move about a month in advance and received a written estimate of 1,500.00 which was reasonable. Then, literally 21 hours before my move, I got a phone call saying Ivan, who I had worked with to get the estimate was mistaken and it would now be $2,500. I got very upset since it was obvious this was a scam and they knew I had very limited options less than 24 hours before my move. Out of desperation, I offered to split the difference and pay $500.00 more but Vitaly said he wouldn't do that and he said I had no right to get angry and that he wasn't responsible for his employee's "mistake." I yelled out of complete frustration and he said he wouldn't do the job for any amount after that. Yes I lost my cool, but it is really upsetting to be scammed like that, less than 24 hours before a scheduled move. Stay away from this company. They cannot be trusted.
