    Comment:  I moved on 10/30 and i think affordable, easy and yes, even environmentally friendly are relative terms. We used JP Urban Moving and they are widely recommended on this list and I got a number of private emails recommending them, as well. They did a walk through of my place and gave me an estimate. They came in two shifts -- the first after a different morning job where they wrapped up everything except the bed we slept on overnight and then the next day they came and loaded the truck and moved us less than a mile from where we lived. It all took a little longer than estimated as we moved to a 6th floor apartment and there is one small elevator .. no freight elevator. They put everything back together and put things where we wanted them to go. The guys were hardworking and friendly and I, too, would definitely recommend them. They made a hard job less hard for us and were polite and honest. They literally handed me change they found on the floor when they moved things. It was expensive. Still they were cheaper than any of the bigger moving services but more than the smaller guys who had less reviews and I was worried about taking a chance on them. We were moving from a large 3 bedroom on two floors in a townhouse to a 2 bedroom in an elevator building. It was a lot of stuff. In terms of environmentally friendly -- NO. Tons of plastic and tape was used to secure items. Lots and lots of boxes that we bought and are giving away so at least they'll get a second use before I hope the next person recycles them. They offered a link and discount to crates you can borrow but we didn't do that. We also had mounds and mounds of giveaway .. a church picked up from our house and lots of garbage. There were probably recyclables that we didn't recycle because it's such a nightmare moving and you are soooo exhausted - in general, that it's hard to do it all. (November 2019)

    Comment:  We used JP Urban recently too, and were very happy with them. They were fast, polite, and I don't think they broke or scratched a thing. (November 2019)

    Comment:  We moved recently and used JP Urban Movers and they were excellent. All of our initial communications were messaging through Yelp, and then day-of, their office initiated a text thread with myself and the crew. I’m sure they would be willing to do all communicating that way. Great local company. (November 2019)

    Comment:  We just moved recently with JP Urban Moving, and had a really good experience. They helped us move a lot of stuff into storage first, and then a final move from old place & storage (2 stops) into new place. They charge by the hour & #workers; and the rates are totally fair. We did $119/hr/4men, and they did the first move in 2.5hr and the final move in almost 6 hours. They're super efficient, polite, and careful with all of our stuff - nothing was broken/damaged for us. I highly recommend them. (November 2019)

They are efficient and professional! It's also very affordable compared to other moving companies. They bring supplies too in case you need extra boxes, etc. Highly recommend them!
