What our clients say

  • Moving Day Ready did an excellent job clearing out 51 years of junk saved by parents who lived through the depression. Your team’s performance  was professional, timely and they did an excellent job cleaning up. I would not hesitate to recommend Moving Day Ready!

  • We used Moving Day Ready to move out of a house that was packed with 40 years’ worth of personal possessions and other junk. Within 5 days, the entire house had been completely emptied! I can’t recommend these folks highly enough.  They are efficient, professional, and affordable.  If you need help with moving or junk removal, CALL THEM!  You won’t be disappointed!

  • When our elderly aunt had a stroke and was coming out of the rehab center, we only had a few days to clear out her house and make it suitable for her return. What Moving Day Ready accomplished in one day would have taken us a whole week. I’d recommend them to anyone trying to downsize or de-clutter!

  • The Moving Day Ready crew are some of the most professional movers I ever dealt with, and are affordable and reliable.  I have always found the staff to be hardworking, efficient and courteous.

  • Moving Day Ready has reinvented customer service. I can’t say enough good things about them. 
I have used them many times in a year and each time, they are as good or better than the time before. They actually listen to what you need done and care about your stuff that’s being moved.

  • We had nearly 30 years of junk and trash in our basement.  The crew showed up on time and went right to work.  They were professional, courteous, and fast workers.  We have a very large basement and they cleaned it out in about an hour.  They were very organized and had a system that was very efficient.  There were some things that I did not think they would take, but they took everything that we wanted to get rid of.  Our basement now looks great.  If ever we accumulate a lot of junk again, they’ll be the first people we call.
