The busiest times for moving companies are typically during the summer months, May-September. If you are planning a move during that time you should make arrangements early.
Friday and Saturdays are big moving days so if you have flexibility in your schedule it can be easier to get a date during the week rather than a weekend.
Do I need to be home during the move?
On the day of the move you need to be present. There is paperwork to sign and you need to show the movers exactly what is being moved. After the movers have loaded the truck you will be ask to do a walk through. That is the time to point out anything that may have been missed once the truck drives away they are done.
At the unload they will place boxes in rooms based on the rooms written on the boxes (ie., bedroom, kitchen, garage). Furniture will be placed in the location you specify. It is helpful if you already have a basic idea where you want furniture placed. If the movers have to keep rearranging and switching furniture around it will take longer and you are paying hourly.
What do I do with my pets?
You want to make sure animals are in their cat/dog carrier prior to the movers arriving. Animals are curious and can get underfoot. If your dog isn’t good around strangers please have them tied up or in their carrier. The moving company cannot transport any live animal no dogs, cats, fish or reptiles are allowed in the truck.
What do I do with my children on moving day?
If you have young children it is a good idea to do the move while they are in school or daycare. You will be busy with the movers and it will be difficult for you to give your child the attention he/she needs. It’s a much less stressful day for you if you children are not home on moving day.
Should I tip the Movers?
The movers do accept tips. Industry standard is 10-15% of the moving job which they divide up evenly.

Tish & Ashley were so quick and professional! Everything was very organized.
Devin and Chris went above and beyond I order to get the job done. I could not have been happier with the service they provided.Thank you
I had an emergency move to get out of my apartment on time and into housing with friends. These guys were able to outfit me with a move. I thought I had decluttered more than I did. I have extra stuff which took extra time and they were so kind to stay a few more hours. The crew safely disassembled and assembled some large furniture pieces too. Very happy!
I used Top Notch Moving and had the pleasure of having DJ, John, Sam, Dom and Mikey move my property to my home. These guys were professional, respectful, attentive, and provided "Top Notch" customer service. I highly recommend Top Notch Moving to anyone looking for a moving company.
We have hired their services to move our office to a new location ( on a second floor) in multiple days. They are careful , they diligently padded all the walls and flooring before they started moving. Once they started, they work very quick. Greg's team is very accomodating and friendly together with Mikey, Sam, Dom, Trap, and Alfonso. They cleaned up well too when they were done. We surely would hire them again if we needed to move again.
It was great moving with Top Notch. Kevin, Devin, Chris, and Mike were a pleasure to work with and got our 2 bedroom (1000sqft) apartment moved into our new house quick and made it look easy. Thanks again!
Mikey and Mike were excellent! They arrived on time and were professional. If you are looking for movers I highly recommend them.
Tish & Mike were great to work with! They worked well together, were professional, and friendly!
Tish & Marie were friendly and did great job packing our house for our move!
I needed a short suspense move and Top Notch Moving was able to meet my needs.
Miley and his crew showed up on time and got off to a quick start. They worked non-stop for 4 hours. There was no slacking off despite the heat and humidity of the day. The team was very efficient able to download everything safely. There was no damage to furniture, walls or flooring during the move. The team and Top notch moving services provided excellent and professional service and their time estimate was spot on.
The name really says it all. Definitely a Top Notch experience. Not only that, but these guys came through for me last minute when another company bailed on me the day before my move. Will be using these guys on my next move for sure.
Tish and Candy were fantastic! Quick, reliable, and careful with all my belongings. They went above and beyond.
Mikey was very friendly, knowledgeable and professional about packing up my friend's things being sent to California.
Our move was on the hottest day of the year but Sam and the crew (wish I had their names) were positively amazing!! I can’t say enough good things about them. The experience was amazing starting with my initial conversation with Kevin. Kevin was awesome in setting up the move and had extreme patience in helping me figure out what I actually needed for the move. He was able to schedule a quick turnaround for us and I can’t thank him enough. Top Notch exceeded my expectations! I would highly recommend them. Ask to speak to Kevin and request Sam and his team and you won’t be disappointed.
Kevin was professional and supportive with accommodating my unique moving schedule to book my reservation. I appreciate working with a quality moving company that prioritizes the customers needs and satisfaction.
Mikey & Dj were awesome !
Top Notch Moving lives up to its name. I’ve moved around a lot locally and this company is the best moving service I used in all my moves. Mikey, Sam, and Jazz took excellent care of my belongings and were very efficient. Super friendly and professional. Definitely recommend this company.
I absolutely love Kevin, he has great customer service skills, he is also a great listener and also has a heart of gold, he is courteous and also very consistent. I called him almost 3 weeks ago unsure of my moving dynamics and he was so patient with me, I called in tears needing a emergency move once I figured out what I needed, and he stuck his neck out for me and my children to get emergency services and for that I will forever be great full for him and kind heart!!! Kevin is a great asset to top notch movers and deserves a pay raise! Keep up the good work Kevin you are truly appreciated here at the Hinnant’s household! Thanks to Kevin my children and I are able to be relocated safelyThanks Kevin!!
Communication before the truck showed up was excellent. The two gentlemen who came in to move a large desk out of my upstairs, were very conscientious. They took care of my home, including the walls, the floors and the doors. It took some creativity to get this desk through the bedroom doorway, but they did it! Excellent service! I highly recommend MiniMoves and Top Notch Movers!
Candy and Tish were great. They were flexible with our schedule and made it a great experience. You’d be lucky to get them
The crew was polite, efficient, and cleaned up without being asked. Great job.
Outstanding service by Mike, Sean, and Dekoda. Careful, efficient, helpful—all in all excellent experience.
David gave me a prompt and fair quote. Booking was very easy. Will send a new review after the move.
Just had our household goods delivered by Top Notch Movers, the guys that came were Mikey, Jimmy, Josh, DJ, and Charles (Chuck), they did a fantastic job, called to give me an ETA when they were headed our way, got here when they'd said they would, made sure to put floor and wall protection up, and were extremely nice and respectful. They got everything moved into the house in about 4 hours, super fast and efficient, had no problem taking things to all the different rooms we asked them to, put together the furniture we requested and did a great job cleaning up after. 10/10 would highly recommend.
Very thorough booking process, making sure there are no surprises or unexpected charges. Much appreciated.
Excellent service. Lady's were super nice
Robert and his team were courteous and able work (even under difficult circumstances). They packed and loaded everything and presented a very positive attitude. I would recommend them again.
Logan clearly cares about the job and the client experience. He showed up early and helped answer all of my questions. Overall a great experience!
Fair, honest, respectful, trustworthy… can’t say enough good things about Top Notch Moving! Logan, Amy, and Kevin came to my rescue and helped us with a move out of state. Great customer service.
Tish and Mike did an excellent job packing up my house making the move smooth and easy!

Brew Ha H.
Logan and his crew were extremely careful with moving my furniture. They put mats on the floor so they would not damage the floor, and made sure my furniture was set up exactly how I wanted!
We had a crew out today to load and move half our belongings. They were professional yet so much fun. They were easy to talk and joke around with but at the same time they hustled their bums off! They did an outstanding job! Thank you Mike, John, Logan, DJ and Devin!! We have already requested them for our second move in June!!!
They were timely and worked fast and efficient. We couldn’t have asked for a better crew. Beyond respectful! Would use again!
Candy, Tish, SheilaExcellent work, very quick and respected personal items and equipment. Would recommend again.
Top Notch Movers did an amazing Job! I had several important items that Top Notch was able to move into my new home without any issue at all!
Being a Veteran and military dependent, I have experienced many transitions and moves over my lifetime. Moving can be overwhelming as one must trust the movers will treat ones belongings with the same respect and care that we owners do. I must say not all the moves I've gone through left me feeling good. But one mover in particular made a recent move one that I can say was a pleasure to make. DJ went out of his way to make sure he handled my treasures gingerly and with the utmost care. His professional attitude and charismatic personality put me at ease and I was sure I'd have no unpleasant unexpected surprises on the other end. I'll bet he doesn't even realize what a difference his actions made in reducing my anxiety about my move. I am grateful to have had him as one of my movers and appreciate him more than he can possibly know.
Grateful to have my new go to moving team! Great price, great staff, & great experience! Definitely worth checking them out
Great experience with the company! Pleasurable and very experienced staff. I highly recommend “DJ”
Top Notch Moving! the best in the industry. I will be using them permanently for all my moves going forward

Excellent service I will definitely be using Top Notch Moving again they provided me and my family everything I needed
Tish and Candi were friendly and fast. Would prefer them again for a future move.
I recently had Top Notch Moving Services for my final military move, and I couldn't have been more impressed with their overall service. The crew was simply excellent - they were professional, efficient, and courteous throughout the entire process. They arrived on time and wasted no time getting to work, carefully wrapping and packing all of my belongings with great attention to detail. They handled even my most delicate items with care and ensured that everything was safely transported to my new home.But it wasn't just their physical work that was outstanding. The crew also had a great attitude, which made the stressful process of moving much more pleasant. They were friendly, accommodating, and communicative, making sure that I was happy with the progress and that everything was going smoothly. They even offered to help with things outside of their scope of work, such as setting up my furniture in the new house.Overall, I can't recommend Top Notch Moving Services enough. Their crew truly went above and beyond to make my move a success, and I wouldn't hesitate to use their services again in the future.
Kevin was very helpful and informative in getting me set up for the move.
Mike and Kai were amazing!!!!! Very professional, efficient and kind.
The Top Notch Crew were very professional and great to work with!!! Thank you for your help today!!!
Kevin is very helpful, responsive and follows up to ensure that everything is running smoothly during every phase of the moving process. He has definitely helped us in such a stressful time.
Fantastic job! Efficient and courteous with our belongings! Would highly recommend them
An outstanding group of people who worked tirelessly to make our move less stressful. They were professional dedicated and experienced
Working with Kevin is the best.
Trish, Candy, shiela and Danny are truly amazing!!
Kevin was quick to call us back when we inquired about a last minute move. It wasn’t even 5 minutes after I put in for the quote we were on the phone and getting ready for a virtual walk through, so he could give us the most accurate quote possible. Not only was quick to respond on a Saturday, he was able to accommodate us with a very quick turn around of a Monday (yes that’s right, 2 days later!) move date. Kevin was also very in depth with what the charges were, how he was getting to the final cost, as well as how to ensure we got the best deal with making sure we had the amount of movers to get this done in a timely fashion! I didn’t feel blind sided by any of the charges put in front of us as he walked us through each line of the estimate making sure we were all on the same page. I would 100% recommend working with Kevin for any of your moving needs!
Super friendly and nice staff. Would definitely hire them again
Mike, Danny and CJ did an excellent job! Will definitely use their services again!
Candy and Tish were thorough and attentive throughout the process. They made my experience enjoyable and I truly felt like my items were in good hands. Great job!
My husband and I were beyond pleased with Top Notch Moving Services! Everyone was super helpful, professional, and provided excellent service with our move into our new house. If you’re looking for a stellar moving company, look no further than Top Notch Moving Services!
Mike, Rob and John were excellent, fast and professional! Highly recommend. I would definitely use them again.
Outstanding service by Tish, Candy, Mike, and Silvia! Extremely kind and courteous, they paid extra attention to detail with our move. Thank you!
Kevin was a pleasure to work with. He addressed our needs and made this a move a smooth transition. I appreciated that he keep us updated and the communication was superb. John and his crew of movers were excellent as well. The worked quickly and gave great attention to detail as well as our belongings. I would recommend to anyone and would definitely use again if needed.
We had a very short window to pack and move and Kevin, the coordinator, took all the stress of planning away, was very helpful and made sure we had exactly what we needed when we needed it. The movers worked hard and were careful with all of our possessions.The only thing to consider is we were charged 3% extra for using a credit card instead of cash. Had I known that was the case, I would have paid cash.
Very pleased and will recommend to others
Melody and Tish was very efficient and helpful with our move. They set the bar high.
The whole process from start to finish was excellent! From booking our move with Kevin miller to the movers! They showed up on time. They protected our home and items. Nothing was damaged and their prices were reasonable for the amount of stuff we had. Highly recommend company!
Hi im W.
Kevin was great, made the experience quick and easy.
This has been the best move I’ve had by far. My last 2 moves was a disaster! It left a sour taste in my mouth and was not going with a “professional company” but I tried one last time and I’m glad I did! Top notch movers far exceeded my expectations and will be using them on my next move!
Jairo and Mike are the most professional movers I have worked with in my 22 years of military service
Great experience moving with Mike, Jonathan and Jairo! Very nice and professional people and this was probably the fastest move I've ever had!
Johnathan Rod and Danny they went out there way to make my day was made good for me
Yes I experienced excellent work no problems very hard working thank you
