FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How do I know if a moving company is legitimate?

According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), a growing number of complaints have been filed against movers lately – many of which are due to the “fraudulent practices… of rogue movers.” Minimize the risk of moving-day delays, damages, inflated charges, or loss of possessions by hiring legal, certified movers. Our license numbers can be found on the footer of this page. 

Do I need to empty my dresser drawers?

It depends. If there are any breakable items in the drawers we recommend removing those item. If there are just clothes and soft items in the drawers there is no need.

How much should I tip my movers?

Although our movers are trained to never ask or hint for tips from customers, they are allowed to accept tips should customers feel inclined for the hard work they received. In terms of what to tip the movers, we encourage customers to tip whatever they feel is necessary for the job that was completed.

Can I book my move entirely online?

Absolutely! Start by getting your free quote by calling us or if you are ready, then, proceed to picking out your desired moving date and time. Next, a booking agent will call you to confirm your move and time. Finally, a big shiny Marathon Moving truck will arrive at your location at your chosen time!

Marathon Movers is an exceptional company, with top tier customer service, communication, timeliness, and a professional team of experienced, mindful, and jovial staff. Moving is hard and they made this a smooth and enjoyable experience. It is apparent they know how to work as a team, but use individual strengths to maximize the quality of their work and the customer’s time. I was so impressed and highly recommend Marathon Movers for your move!

Great customer service! Milton explained everything on the phone and confirmed things the day before. He and his team member were really fast the day of the move, we did a walk through before and after the move. They were careful with all my items.

***I paid half the quoted price***First off I was in a pinch with scheduling, everyone else in the area was booked out. Milton moved mountains and kept me updated on opening a window to get me in. When the day came, A 3 man crew showed up, Devonte (the team lead) as well as Shawn and Vic handled my move and these guys really made it a comfortable experience. They packed everything and loaded it on the truck and brought it to my new apartment, keeping me updated on everything going on.. Their professionalism and chemistry as a team is absolutely unmatched and in the end I paid half of what was quoted to me and the job took way less time than expected. Highly recommend this being your first pick for your move.

Man what can I say…. These guys are #1 in the game!!!! Over 20 years of military moving and I have always had to leave stuff behind. The team here stack and packed and got a 4 bedroom house into a truck like it was nothing. I still had room left over. I wish these guys had offices all over as they would be my goto from now own!!!! Can’t be beat. In knowledge and pricing!!!!!!

Marathon Moving Services, led by Milton and his team, did an outstanding job with our move. They worked tirelessly and took great care of our furniture and home, ensuring no damage to walls, doors, or floors even amidst the rain. They were always attentive to our requests regarding item placement, handling everything with utmost respect. The standout aspect of their service was their meticulous disassembly and reassembly of beds and furniture, a task that can be truly exhausting. After numerous moves, opting out of this chore was a relief. I highly recommend their services.

I had the pleasure of having Marathon Moving Services move my furniture from my 2600 sqft home into storage. The movers are very professional, and they came prepared. I gave them less than 24 hours' notice, and they were able to fit me in their schedule. They have a 26-foot truck that was filled to the rim. I have a 20-foot storage container, and the movers fit all my belongings neatly inside of it without damaging anything. Their skill sets are impeccable. They are definitely worth the cost. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who is in need of a move. Thank you, gentlemen.

I need a washer moved like the next day. This young man was at my house before 8:30 the next day. He worked with me at the last minute. Took so much stress off of me. Also he let me add quite a few boxes to store with washer for my big move in a couple of months. He's professional, friendly just a nice young man. I know everyone will enjoy working with him. I will be using him for any moves l have. Along with referring him to everyone.

I loved Milt and his team!!They were hired to move my furniture to my new home as I thought I could get the "small stuff" in my SUV w/no problem as my new home was near by. Milt said we'll move anything you want and pack it for you. So the three man team got busy and moved everything!Bags of garden soil, planter boxes, plants, a cement sailboat you name it they packed it.They arrived on time at 9:30AM and we were at the new house and were finished unloading at 1:00!They were very professional and personable. We had a great time!They took very good care of my fine art pieces and all my treasures.I highly recommend Marathon Movers.
