What People Think About Us
Excellent moving service. Was moving from the valley to Glendale with just a few larger pieces of furniture and a bunch of boxes, about enough for a small one-bedroom or studio, and after the last moving company which shall not be named moved me but also maybe made out with an extra watch or so, I was incredibly leery of going with the cheapest, bargain-basement movers but also didn't want to be ripped off so came to Yelp as I like to do and contacted three Los Angeles-area moving services that had fast response times per yelp and waited. While all three got back to me very quickly, the manager of Safederal personally called me and pretty much convinced me to go with their services, and I was impressed by his knowledge and transparency. While the prices were pretty much within a few dollars/hour of the other moving companies, he indicated that the double drive time which was required by law would only be added to the minimum (if I only went three hours on a weekday) and not start on top of the minimum (I hope that made sense). So if the entire move took 2.5 hours and there was 30 minutes of driving that exceeded the 15 mile threshold, then an additional 30 minutes would be added to the 3 hours of actual moving/driving time, for a total of 3 hours and 30 minutes. Not sure if this is the industry standard but it sounded better than the entirety of the drive time, then doubled, to start after the minimum 3 hours. As it was, I agreed, and everything went smoothly from there. We corresponded via Yelp messaging for a while and after I sent the pick up and drop off addresses, I got confirmation via either a text or email and at the appointed day and hour the moving truck pulled in and I met the movers Nicad and Almas, two men in their late 20's or early 30's who were both strong enough to do the heavy lifting, and yet youthful and limber enough to be careful in their coordination of the furniture and its procurement around walls and such. They walked around and acknowledged all the furniture and boxes in the various rooms they had collected in, assessed everything, and got straight to work. As promised, they worked carefully but efficiently, moved and packed everything, and even managed to find some clever temporary parking in dense residential Glendale as they unpacked everything and hoisted it up a flight of stairs (no elevator!). I highly recommend Safederal and their movers. My only regret is that I didn't make use of the yelp deal which I think last I saw was something like $20 for $50 so if you move fast you can save some $30, which I wasn't able to do (sobbing sounds). But maybe if you reference this post they'll give me a coupon or something for next time! Even without the additional savings though they were really great and I would definitely work with them again and refer them to anyone who plans on moving. Oh! one more thing. They tend to be busy at the first and last of the month as that's when most leases start/end, so if you intent do move during those periods, book sooner than later.
I recently had to do some light moving that would have taken too much money and labor to do myself, yet wasn't enough for a full 3 hour job that most movers require. I decided to go with Safederal Moving after contacting many movers because they were able to come by a weeknight after 6 that worked with my schedule. Scheduled for 6pm they had a one hour window to arrive (it's stated in their agreements), and they came by 6:50pm. There was notably bad traffic to the westside and it was a given that this was, well, the way LA traffic works. Jack and Slava met me up in the back since the main front entrance was closed off due to a water main break. They understood what was needed right away as I let them know where else they could park. The wrapped up the items to prevent any damage and liability issues and went off to the address I told them to send stuff off to. I met them 30 minutes later and they were assembling the bed and doing so diligently and with care. Throughout the whole time they were focused and exchanged a few jokes with me to keep it friendly. I applied the voucher and paid cash to get the best deal I possibly could. While they have a three hour minimum like other movers, I only needed them for, at most, two hours. I included a tip and everyone was on their way. I would definitely hire them not only for their prices, but their straight forward service and prompt availability.
I would like to thank Sean very much for having worked with me every time I had to change my move date over, and over again. He never complained and was always understanding and accommodating. On the day of my move Ali and his crew couldn't be more helpful. they were fast, efficient and careful when moving my stuff into our newly painted home with not a mark anywhere to be found. I only wished I could have offered more than covering the cost of lunch for them that day. Did I mentioned they also did my move as it started to rain? These guys were kill ass. If you're thinking about moving, this team will ease the pain of it all. Kudos to Sean and his Team. Cordialement,
Seymur , Orxan , Dima , Iqor did an amazing job with our recent move. The crew was on time, courteous, efficient, & careful with all of our furniture & things. We were very happy with their work & how easy it was to work with the team. We were also so thankful for their assistance in putting our beds & tables back together. From making the reservation to unloading all of our stuff the company & crew was professional & I would highly recommend them for your next move! Thank you again!
Mukhamed and and his crew are true professionals. They showed up on time and packed my things with care and made a second stop to pick up more things from another location. And finally, they arrived at a third and final stop to move me in. They work fast and efficient. They are extremely careful with everything and only want to put things exactly where you want it. No other movers in So. Cal can compare to these guys. When you are ready to move-give them a call. You will be glad you did!
Injured my back last week and had to move in today. I knew I was screwed bc it's a 4-story town house and I wasn't looking forward to moving, so for sure I knew my friends wouldn't want to either. I couldn't pay my friends to help me. That's how shitty this move was gonna be. So I yelped and saw Safederal and figured, this would be as good a company as any. And their reviews were good so why not? And I was right! Ali, Fay and Sino came and helped me at 9am sharp (my appointment time) and asked to see what I needed moved. Then went to work immediately, not taking any breaks for 2 whole hours. The only breaks they needed was the drive to my new house and a short 5 minute drink break on the 3rd hour. Considering all the shit I had to move in, it only took about 4 hours. And that's going up and down these fucked up narrow hallways. These guys had great work ethic and are very capable of moving anything, regardless of the size and weight of the object. I recommend this company to anyone looking to move.
