    My overall move experience was that of utter exhaustion and massive quantities of stress. That said, everything went very smoothly because of my level of preparation which was also stressful. So, overall, my move was great because I was a total stress case for three months before and still rather stressing a week after. Thanks for asking!

    Move team: our driver, Craig and move team were great. We had to quickly shift the move schedule due to weather challenges and everything went very smoothly. Craig was incredibly professional and reliable, and had done his homework at both ends, arriving on time. Annie at Locatelli was also great, though some of the office staff there were challenging to work with and didn't pass on messages.

    overall it was a positive experience. Misty Mitchell from Locatelli Moving was very helpful, the crew that loaded the truck was efficient as was the crew who unloaded. They arrived on the day they said they would. There were two items damaged and somethings were missing, but Misty walked me through the claim process and tried to track the missing box. I recieved a check for the full amount for the damaged items.

    Despite some tricky scheduling, when we were going to be out of town on a new delivery date, the movers managed very well to unload the truck into our storage space on their own, coordinated with the storage space management.

    The mover Caas was very good, he packed our apartment and also moved to our new location. HE was careful , professional and over all very helpful

    Overall, all things considered, I was very satisfied with the entire experience. There was just some unprofessional behavior from one of the unloading crew members. That's why I didn't give the top rating

  • Lynda P.

    Misty at Locatelli Movers made the entire experience as stress-free as I could imagine. She was available by phone and for personal meetings before the move and has remained available even after the move has completed. All details of the move happened as it was originally explained. My only complaints: the movers at my Santa Cruz condo did not wrap my furniture for trip from condo to the truck until they dropped a drawer from dresser onto the sidewalk (and I complained to the foreman). Also, a couple of pieces of furniture were damaged at the delivery end (one was a dresser that I advised about but they still carried it in ill-advised way that broke the dresser crossbar). Overall, the entire experience for a cross-country move was far more positive than I anticipated. Again, I credit Misty Mitchell with much of making this work out so well.

    United Driver and Urbana Assistant were great! Courteous and patient. NOT SO Locatelli Movers...forgot important items i.e. Valuable Art Pieces, rushed, took items to move that were to stay at CA House. Locatelli "Desk Assistant" Demanded Payment upon arrival of Van. Would not allow Driver to unload until paid $5,700..unlike past 6-7 Moves and/or Storage I contracted with Locatelli over the years. Will tell all I know to NEVER contract Locatelli Moving & Storage. Many Floods in CA and many put personal items in Storage...Telling Newsletter in Felton: Do NOT use Locatelli!

    Delivery was sooner than expected, very professional, nothing broken. The three gentlemen who delivered our things were very courteous and kind and diligent. I was very impressed with the quality of service. We did receive 3 boxes that belonged to someone else. I am not having a lot of success in getting someone to come pick them up and return them to their rightful owner.

    We were in the military for 20 years and had experienced many moves. It has been 40 tears since our last move, and this was our first move as non-military people. Moving has been improved and I was very impressed with the packing and handling of our stuff. And the move included schuttle serve at both ends.

    Excellent interaction with Ms Asche, the owner of Locatelli's. Timely arrival of van on moving day. Careful wrapping of furniture and disassembled furniture by Michael, your driver, and his (local) helper. Prompt departure of loaded van enabled us to start our drive to WA at around noon. Michael phoned to inform us of his ETA in WA at on a day and time convenient to us. The weather that day was raining/snowing. Our house is not readily accessible from a large van; either up 16 steps from the street, or along a 60 yard alley. Because the United agent in Mt. Vernon was not able to provide Michael with a helper, he elected to park the van on a side street and ferry the 3120# load up the alley on a small trolley. This required 20-30 trips. One of our flimsy shelf units was slightly damaged and Michael apologized profusely for it. He and I verified that all items recorded on the inventory had been delivered. One error in the invoice from United, dated 3/4/2017, is being disputed.
