🏆 Customer opinion

“Darwin, Jose, and Francisco are STARS! I hired Jay's three times, and have been super happy all three times, but the third truly is the charm. This move was NOT easy! I had them come to San Francisco to grab my things from a jam-packed studio up a janky flight of narrow stairs and pack my things, and then go pick up my girlfriend's things in Sunnyvale. The three took such great care of my things - I was honestly going to take my beloved road bicycle in my car, but when I saw how well they were packing my things in the moving van, I just handed my baby over. I knew I was in great hands!

They were careful, patient, and kind. They truly cared for my things as if they were precious items from a palace! I was just in awe of them. Also, for skinny guys, they sure can lift a lot. They had to maneuver my Peloton bike down the janky steps and they were so careful and gentle.

Overall, the communication was so great as well. Emails and calls helped me keep on track. They really are very good at what they do! Tell Jose, Francisco, and Darwin that Charlie the parrot says hello! While I hope I don't move again anytime soon, if I know anyone who does, I will insist they call Jay's!”
