    I used Ararat moving for moving last weekend. They gave me a quote over email that was very reasonable. Victor and Vasile arrived right on time. They loaded up our stuff within no time. During the drive to my new place, they had to stop for gas and they let me know about it. Both of them were very friendly to talk to. I would hire them again if I were to move again. Highly recommended!!!!

    These guys were amazing! Very efficient! Found them on Craigslist and was quoted $95/hour for 3 men which is much less than this other well-known company wanted to charge us. I was suspicious as the ad didn’t have fheir company’s name, and I communicated with Eric who uses a gmail account. After he revealed to me the name of the company and I read the reviews here, I was convinced we should go for it.

    They moved our busy 2 bedroom apt in San Francisco into a house in Marin in exact 6 hours. Seems like a lot but we had way too much crap and I swear these guys were as fast loading their truck as it gets! We had three young European dudes who were strong and on top of it and easy to communicate with. My husband was so impressed that he tipped them $40 each – and I hope that other people are doing the same, these guys work hard and deserve it.
    My only advice to their boss Eric: put the company’s name somewhere in your ads and also a link to these yelp reviews. That will make you look more professional and bring on more business!

    We had 2 movers move us from a 1 bedroom on the second floor to a 3 bedroom house. Arturo and another guy (I didn’t catch his name) were very smart and intuitive about moving and successfully disassembled and reassembled 2 complex pieces of furniture. We needed to get rid of some cumbersome pieces and they took care of that as well at no additional charge. They did end up breaking the glass bowl of one of our more fragile lamps. Accidents do happen, and it was during the ride over. They insisted on paying us for the full amount to replace and were very apologetic. I was happy with the way they handled it. We tipped them each $40 and they were on their way after 3.5 hours of moving!

    I do have one gripe with this company though. Eric K, the guy I corresponded with after replying to a Craigslist ad, said that the $55 for 2 movers rate that is listed is only for the smallest truck, which would be too small for our needs. He said we would need the bigger truck at $65/hour with 2 movers. Our movers showed up with a 16′ truck and later in the move, mentioned in passing that it is their smallest truck. They also have 20′ and 24′ trucks. I do feel that this is a shady advertising practice done by upper management, but I’m happy that I ended up getting wonderful service from our movers.

    Would use again 🙂

    The original moving company I scheduled was not available, so Ararat Moving co. called me notifying me 2 days prior to my move. Alex was fantastic – keeping me up-to-date with their schedule and confirmed my moving needs and schedule. Alex and Evgeniy came on time and was very careful and meticulous about my furniture, making sure not to damage any of the furniture or the houses I was moving out / into. I had a great experience with them and highly recommend Alex and Evgeniy specifically to help anyone with their moves if they want to ensure everything is well cared for.

    This is a late review for Ararat. Eric and his partner did an excellent job on moving my stuff. They were on time when I met them at the Public Storage. These guys were amazing and very efficient. I highly recommend them!

    This has been the best moving experience I’ve ever had. These guys showed up on time, were really nice and in great moods. They were super efficient and very careful of our things. I would definitely hire them again. Also, the price is very reasonable!

    Great moving company. Coincidentally it is the second time we have used them. I found them on Craigslist for our move from the Marina to Pleasant Hill. Took 6 hours to move 2 bedrooms worth of apartment (even though we are a one bedroom) to a house. They booked us on short notice and the night before they had a flat tire on a truck and called us not to cancel but to reschedule. Then a few hours later I received an email from Eric that we were back on and the problem was resolved. We packed the truck to the door and Vasile and Yvgene (spelling?) took care to wrap all the furniture, take stuff apart and put it back together and fit everything in the truck to the brim. It was so packed we had to leave a few small items. The other time we used them was from Palo Alto to San Francisco and we had a similar experience. Took care to not ding walls or cause damage. That time we had a few scratches to the coffee table and the manager discounted the move a little to compensate, which was appreciated. Would recommend and would use again. Thank you!

    Moving is never fun and is always a stressful day. Due to circumstances i had to find movers over the long weekend while i was out of town. I messaged Erick on yelp and not only did he respond within an hour, he prioritized my move without any hassle.

    On the day of the move, Erick and his crew were very careful with all of our furnitures and they were all so kind.

    Thank you for such a wonderful experience. If you are looking for movers, this is the company to go to. Their pricing is extremely reasonable and the crew are all very sweet.

    They saved the day!! When the moving company that I hired flaked at the very last minute, Ararat in a moments notice, stepped in and took care of my move. The other company – Born Moving – was a no show for the Sunday noon prearranged time. I Googled ‘moving companies SF’ and found Ararat Moving. Within minutes we had our move set to start in a couple of hours. They were absolutely awesome! The move itself went smoothly in less time and money than all other companies had estimated. They are lifesavers!!!!! THANK YOU ARARAT MOVING !!!

    These folks moved me twice in April, and I thought they were just awesome.

    Vasiliy and Rustam – both good souls and incredibly hardworking – were very careful with my stuff and both have the patience of saints.

    They filled a 26 foot truck and were flawless. I was amazed.

    Save yourself the grief of looking and calling, and just use these folks!

    Really nice moving company. I moved a lot of stuff. Rustam and David were nice and accurate. I would highly recommend Ararat Moving especially if you are in Daly City.

    They were really good. My mover canceled at the last minute and I found Ararat. The appointment was on short notice, quick and easy. We had two staff members, they worked constantly without wasting any time. The job was done before the estimated time. Will surely recommend.

    Jul 2, 2021

    The movers had requested shifting times around several times but once they showed up, they were great. Moved everything incredibly efficiently and expeditiously. Treated items with extreme care and got everything done in the time requested. Initial quote was spot on. Would definitely recommend them.

    Jul 2, 2021

    Personable, friendly and time efficient team! They were very careful with our belongings and I couldn’t be more happier with the great customer service provided today! They transferred everything out of our old place to our new home in 2 hours flat!

    I’ve had my fair share of movers that I find on Craigslist, but this one is legit, insured and very quick. Reserving an appointment was very easy, being that I picked the busiest moving time–Saturday late morning, when everyone else seemed to be booked. They arrived promptly, asked what should stay and go, and everything was easy from there!

    These guys are awesome! Moving is usually stressful, but they made it a complete breeze for us! Hopefully we don’t have to move for a while, but definitely will be my go to when we do in the future.

    I highly recommend this moving company. Last minute wonted someone for weekend. Luckily they had a crew available. They were on time, fast and had done quality and safe work. The two guys who have been showed up were super nice and have got everything done faster then estimated.Thank you guys!!! The entire process was fast and professional with fair pice!!! Would go through them again when we move again!!!

    I would definitely recommend this company. Yesterday their three man team moved my two bedroom house out in a matter of two hours. That included taking apart of some furniture and wrapping much of it. Then they unloaded it into the storage place in just over an hour.

    They were careful, didn’t bump into walls, etc, and the furniture looks good. I will be using their services again when it’s time to move from the storage facility.

    Easy 5 stars – super responsive, hard workers, and great rate!

    After comparing a bunch of moving companies over the last few weeks leading up to our move, SF Local Moving was the best rate/minimum. And the job they did, amazing! We moved from our first floor 2 bedroom w/ storage unit into a first floor 2 bedroom in 3.5 hours, with 3 movers. The guys hustled the entire time!

    Everything arrived safe and sound!

    We accidentally thought we misplaced one box of glassware (it was simply covered by empty boxes) and the team jumped on it to get in touch with our team and they pointed us in the right direction. I apologized for the fire drill, but it just goes to show how thorough and professional they are.

    …the only items that broke where when my father in law came over the lend a hand, but that’s a review for a different page 🙂

    I highly recommend Ararat Moving. I have used them several times and they have always been professional, affordable and FAST!

    Vasile and Artur made my life much easier when I moved to Pacifica from San Francisco. They took great care of my items, they were very courteous, friendly and easy to work with. Unlike other moving companies that I worked with before where one person hardly works and clocks more time, both of them were very diligent and did the work at less time than I expected. The total move was slightly more than three hours, but they charged me for only three! If you live in SF and looking for movers, you can’t get anyone better. I have moved within SF multiple times and wish I had them before. I have several fragile and bulky items, and everything was in great shape after the move. Definitely I’ll use them again.

    We had a one room move with boxes, books in shopping bags, a couch and a very heavy dresser. It was last minute Sat eve for a Sunday move. They were super accommodating, showed up on time, and got the job done quickly. Rate was $95/hr plus $20 for gas. So glad I didn’t have to carry that dresser up to the second floor.

    Dorion C.

    Jul 2, 2021

    This was a really great moving experience. I had to do a small move, and only had a few bulky thinks (e.g. queen size bed), everything was done within 2,5 hours including wrapping fragile items. Very professional and hight quality work, and the cost was really affordable too!

    Micha M.

    Jul 2, 2021

    These guys were fantastic- used them to load stuff out of our apartment and into a U-Pack trailer in a long-distance move. Funny, friendly, strong, and fast… and man did they Tetris the heck out of the U-Pack trailer, saving me $$. I would highly recommend these guys, and if I ever move back to the Bay, I’d definitely use them again.

    Wendy H.

    Jul 2, 2021

    Very good communication, excellent service and a very smooth move overall. Nothing broken, nothing left behind, and no escaped cats. Their great rates don’t hurt!

    Owner has reached out to and was very apologetic and has offered me a discount on my next move for the inconvenience. I was impressed by his willingness to make the situation right.

    Jul 2, 2021

    Great service. The two guys that came were fast, professional and did the job well. Arrived on time and finished the job in the time they quoted me and at the right price. Would definitely recommend.

    I had Vasile and Artur move my 1 BR apartment across town. They were a little late, but called ahead to let me know and made up the time with their hard work! They were able to move everything across town in 3 hrs which was very impressive, but also did so without damaging any of my art or furniture. These guys were very polite, extremely hard working, and a pleasure to work with. Would have been 5 stars if traffic hadn’t held them up, but I was still impressed by their pace.

    Ben F.

    Jul 2, 2021

    Such an awesome company! I had Vasile and the other guy , do not remember his name, moving my large studio. They were very polite and fun, I’ve had a feeling that there is no issue in this world that those guys can not handle.

    Vasile was so nice to repair my dresser which had a problem with a door closing.

    Awesome guys, fast and cheap!

    Mihail G.

    Jul 2, 2021

    Had a wonderful experience with this company yesterday. I scheduled this last minute (two days before).

    Sergei and Ilya showed up right on time (at 6:30 am on Saturday!). They were extremely nice and respectful of our home. They helped us move our stuff without a glitch.

    Would definitely work with this company again and recommend them to anyone who needs moving services.

    Irina I.

    Jul 2, 2021

    This company is a great option for a budget move. They charge $60 an hour with a 2 hour minimum. Many companies charge a 3 hour minimum, which is usually more time than I need to move my studio apartment. These guys were finished in 2 hours, including a drive across the bay (San Francisco to Oakland). Impressive!

    Vasile and Artur were my movers. Here are a few things that went well with the move:

    Vasile and Artur took a lot of care not to bump the walls with any of the large furniture, which I greatly appreciated. I was also pleased at the care and attention they paid to my house plants. I had one plant that was so tall it almost didn’t fit in the truck. Vasile spent several minutes positioning the plant so that he could close the door without damaging it. (Thanks, Vasile, for the extra attention).

    I’ll edit this part out if it causes the company trouble, but also noteworthy is the fact that the company agreed in the reservation process to let me ride from SF to Oakland in the moving truck. I don’t own a car, so this was a hurdle I knew I needed to figure out, and this company provided the most convenient solution.

    The move in to the new apartment was more efficient than the move out of the old one, since they had taken care to stack and organize my boxes for maximum efficiency on the other end.

    I received a very straightforward quote, including a driving fee of $35 for driving across the bay. No hidden costs here, and I paid what I expected to pay.

    Thanks for a hassle free move, guys.

    Fantastic moving company. I worked with Vasile and Sergei. These guys are professional and fast. Took great care of my things and made my move easy. Definitely recommend them for the job.

    Jul 2, 2021

    After a fiasco with another moving company, I called SF Local Moving. Everything went smoothly. The guys, Artur and Vasile, were on time, and promptly and professionally started moving things out of my storage unit. They loaded and unloaded my things much quicker than expected, and even assembled my wonky bed. If I have to do another local move, I will call them first.

    Dara J.

    Jul 2, 2021

    Vasile and Artur moved my ~25 person company to a new office within a few days notice. They were efficient, professional, and affordable. I would definitely use them again.

    Andy S.

    Jul 2, 2021

    These guys are fabulous.
    I called the day before I needed them. Edgar, who took my call, was professional, a clear communicator and courteous. The guys who arrived (Sergei and Vasile and one other young man) arrived on time, were efficient, careful and respectful. This was a rather tricky move as I moved from Lafayette to Woodacre in Marin, which entailed some very narrow, steep, winding roads. They went above and beyond and did an impeccable job. I recommend them unreservedly.

    Carrie M.

    Jul 2, 2021

    Sergei and (I believe) Vasile were efficient, friendly, and careful. They were very apologetic for being a couple of minutes late due to needing gas, and were polite and enjoyable to talk with throughout the move. We had a more complex move, going from 2 separate apartments to 1 new one, but they were organized and efficient. Also, the cost was way less than we expected, including some pads/wraps for the more fragile items.

    I would definitely recommend them, and we will use them again the next time we have to move.

    A little late on the review but better late than never…

    This company is great overall. The price was right and they hauled ass like nobody’s business. I was moving July 4th weekend (apparently one of the busiest moving days of the year) and I slipped on getting booking movers. This company was available and didn’t charge me an arm and a leg for a last minute booking (or for stairs).

    Let’s see…I was moving from third floor apartment with no elevator. They moved everything out of the old place and moved everything into the new place in under three hours. I was a bit concerned at first because they showed up a bit late and was waiting on one person (it was 3 people all together) but it was totally fine – Everything they did made up for it…moving quickly, making sure items didn’t get damaged, asking permission to do things. These guys were awesome!!!

    I guess, my only suggestion would be that they invest in some moving supplies such as more padded blankets, since people moving usually do not have those things. Again, just a suggestion for a budding business but not any reason why I wouldn’t use them again.

    Would I use them again? Absolutely!!! Would I suggest them to others? Of course! Oh, and on one last note, Vasile is the man!!!

    SF M.

    Jul 2, 2021

    Good job. Showed up on time. Maybe a tad too much chatting with each other & a bit of a slow start but ultimately loaded truck carefully. Drove and unloaded very quickly! Made up for any doubts I may had been developing! Good effort!! I’m happy!

    John T.

    Jul 2, 2021

    I moved this past weekend from a 1 bedroom downtown apartment to another tricky (to park) location in San Francisco and it was no problem for these guys! I was super impressed with how fast they moved my stuff, but still with care. Nothing was broken and all of my stuff was well taken care of. The move was around 3 hours and I was super pleased with their prices. If you’re looking for affordable movers that are reputable and won’t damage your belongings, then look no further than SF Local Moving! I highly recommend these folks to anyone and I will definitely be using them again in the future!

    Sarah L.

    This group made my life so much easier during my move. They accommodated a request on short notice for a great price.
    They were extremely respectful, quick moving, and friendly! Sergay went above and beyond in his customer service. I would use them again and will refer them to everyone I know!

    Katie S.

    Jul 2, 2021

    SF Local Moving completely saved my life. At least that’s how I felt.

    After moving with the help of friends into a guaranteed, sure-thing sublet I found out that it wasn’t at all legitimate and I would need to leave soon. After moving everything in myself I was uninterested in the idea of moving and was more than content to hire movers.

    The two gentlemen showed up at my door promptly and made very quick work of moving my 1bd 1ba worth of fragile electronics and misc boxes to a studio with no elevator.

    I was concerned about my brand new tv and computer monitor, but for no reason because everything arrived in perfect shape. This would have taken me days to do on my own in SF with no car.

    The price is very fair, they make it look easy and they are very professional. Cheers and thanks!

    Jul 2, 2021

    True professionals! I had to cancel my first appointment with Edgar. No problem. He was really cool about that. Then, I had to change the time of the next appointment due to events beyond my control. No problem. The two young guys, Sergei & Alex, were there on time. They went about their business with efficiency and soon enough, the two fellows had moved all my stuff into my storage unit. I found them courteous and always professional. I recommend their services very highly. In fact, I’ll need them again very soon.

    Alphonse-Louis V.

    Jul 2, 2021

    Had a great experience with SF Local Moving! Sergei and I think Alex (sorry, I’m bad with names) were AWESOME! They handled all our furniture with care and moved extremely fast for having to lug down multiple large items (couch, coffee table, bed, entertainment center, etc). What I appreciated the most was how respectful and kind the guys were and how focused they were on moving (I’m a talker and I started making small talk and they kept on moving items, so good job guys!) Lastly, the price can’t be beat!

    Julia M.

    Jul 2, 2021

    Fabulous experience. I never would have expected to be so pleased with a moving company throughout the stress of moving day. I only booked a few days in advance and they were able to accommodate all of my needs. Flat and very reasonable rate per hour, NO hidden charges for anything despite having two pick up spots before the final moving location. Showed up early, were efficient, careful with our belongings, and extremely friendly and nice. Could not recommend more!

    Sarah G.

    Jul 2, 2021

    The two gentlemen did exactly what they said they would do – move my belongings from one place to another. They were careful and quick even to a point where my roommate wished she hired them instead of others that cost twice as much. Nothing broken, nothing missing.

    Kevin A.

    Jul 2, 2021

    Edgar and Greg helped me move my one bedroom apartment yesterday and were great. I moved from a quiet part of San Francisco to busier Russian Hill and all of my stuff arrived in one piece. Edgar and Greg were able to work around the trolley with no problems… Highly recommend!

    Ben C.

    Jul 2, 2021

    The two guys did a great job. They showed up on time and moved all my furniture with nothing damaged or lost. I would definitely recommend them and use them again.

    Shruti A.

    Jul 2, 2021

    These two guys were great–efficient, friendly, and cost-effective. They came totally prepared with that moving saran wrap stuff, dollies, and muscle. They fearlessly navigated my horrible enclosed spiral staircase, and I would absolutely use them again over other CL movers!

    Allison A.

    Jul 2, 2021

    Would like to just state that Edgar, Alex, and Ghigli did a great job helping us move.
    They came exactly on time, and worked hard. They were helpful, personable, and careful too. Ernie

    Moving is a stressful process but these guys made it so easy. They were beyond helpful and enjoyable to work with. They were right on time and the price was right.

    Thank you!!

    I moved yesterday and called them to schedule with only about a weeks notice and it is the end of the month… But Edgar was prompt and got me scheduled in!

    I hired them due to not being able to lift my heavy dresser, tables, and bed. As a college student the prices were unbeatable and I wanted them for two hours, since I can’t afford too much. The movers came and I told them to move the heavy stuff, not knowing how long it would take them, it took them like 15 minutes!!!!!!! I was amazed!!!!!!!! They were so quick and efficient, so then they helped me with all of the rest of my stuff, I’d offer to grab a bag here and there but they said no and said they’d take care of everything…. I was so happy they finished completely in about an hour maybe an hour and fifteen minutes tops! I was more than happy to pay the 2 hour minimum because these guys were awesome! I feel so lucky to have found them and had their help. They made moving so easy for me.

    After they left later in the day Edgar called to make sure everything went well, now that’s some great customer service.

    5+ stars for SF Local Moving!

    They are prompt, reliable, polite and exceptionally efficient!!! They moved my entire apartment in under 2 hours, including very large/heavy pieces of furniture that were tricky to navigate through narrow doorways. I hired 3 movers and the price was extremely affordable (no hidden fees for gas, renting equipment, etc.) and absolutely worth every penny! Edgar and his team made my move completely stress free and I highly recommend them to anyone looking for movers in the city.

    Emily S.

    Jul 2, 2021

    Edgar was very straightforward when I called. His guys showed up on time and were very professional. They moved my stuff and charged the advertised rate. I highly recommend their services.

    Jul 2, 2021

    I had my movers cancel on me hours before they were scheduled. I called Edgar and he was able to schedule me in later in the evening.

    Edgar and Alex moved $30,000 worth of art, 2 giant couches and heavy boxes up a 3 story spiral staircase in San Francisco without a single scuff. THESE GUYS ARE AMAZING!!! They are also extremely affordable and nice. If you need movers go with this company!!

    Liz H.

    Jul 2, 2021

    I had a great experience with SF Local Moving! They were able to accommodate my move even though I called just a few days in advance. They arrived within the schedule time frame and were very efficient and nice. The price was as quoted – no hidden fees! We were able to move everything from my old apartment to my new apartment in a little over an hour!

    I would highly recommend SF Local Moving – they are very well priced and did a great job!

    Jul 2, 2021

    I used these guys for two hours today. Edgar and George helped me. Good guys, careful, efficient & a competitive price.

    Jul 2, 2021

    Super easy to schedule a move two days in advance. Guys showed up on time, with right equipment, and got the job done in an hour and a half. Everything unpacked in great shape. Highly recommend
