Beware this company, during pick up they told me the truck broke down and they again had to delay pick up 3 more times after that (and I heard from another client the "truck broke down" story is common) I was told I would get a discount since the third time they moved pick up messed up my travel plans, which they later retracted and when I asked to talk to a supervisor to find out why they said no I can't talk to him. I was told my furniture would arrive within 10 business days, the drop off day just like pick up day kept getting delayed, and then on the 10th business day after I called to find out where my stuff was they said "oh it's going to be 30 days now" I tried to pull up the contract to reference to them why that was not okay, and lo and behold the link where the contract was now disappeared and was replaced with a website that said "This Job is Booked" I still don't have any of my furniture, they won't tell me when it will come, and they won't let me talk to the supervisor when I call. Stay away to avoid stress and wasted time and money .

I want to give a shoutout to the movers that work for this company. They did a really great job with helping my family move. We are a big family and there was A LOT of things to take care of when we got everything out of the house. We packed most of the things in the apartment ourselves. The office workers are also helpful and were all around easy to work with. We appreciate all that was done and recommend this company.

This company was terrible from the word go. I should have forfeitted my deposit and cut my losses. The representative asked for a three day window to pick up our household goods. The driver would call 24 hours in advance. I waited and waited and waited. No phone call. I finally called and was told that the truck had broken down and one of the workers was sick. They would be calling to reschedule. This was 5 o'clock on a Friday and I had already scheduled my utilities to be shut off. I had to scramble and get the date changed. When they finally showed up, WITHOUT a phone call, there were only two movers instead of the three we were told would be packing our goods. I had packed most of our stuff but Jimmy said that the pictures had to be in boxes and the boxes were $20.00 a piece. I agreed and they packed the pictures in three boxes. After they packed, they were in a hurry to get on the road. I was rushed through the paperwork and told where to sign. I couldn't read the inventory list that was created but I really had no option at that point. I signed the document. Getting our delivery was another nightmare. The boxes arrived in a U-Haul and were upside down, broken, and open. We were given no chance to inventory the shipment because they had to get to the next job. Items were missing and we are still fighting with Century to get the missing boxes delivered.

I am a perfectionist and I like when things are done right. It's the lawyer in me. I called two months ahead and spoke to Kathy. She referred me to Tim who was my rep and gave me the quote and made the arrangements. I thought it was a little high at first, but then I did some research with other companies and found that it was pretty standard and acceptable. Zeek called me the day before the move to confirm. Everything was all set. The movers arrived early in the morning. It took several hours to get everything out, but they were diligent and organized. I felt comfortable with the fact that they documented everything in order to ensure that my belongings were secure. Needless to say, it was an exhausting day, but everything was done efficiently.

My experience with Century Moving was good, the salesman over the phone was very informative. His name was david and he was great with my wife, I have to work constantly, so wife was in charge of the move. The quote over the phone was very detailed and they reviewed all of the inventory several times to ensure that it was precise. The down payment was a reasonable price and the payments at pickup and delivery were split up. I am glad that they did it this way so we could make it easier withe the monies. Move day they came and made sure that everything was pad wrapped and blanketed. It was three moving guys, one of them was a foreman and his name was Paul. Paul directed both of the young men and made sure that they were doing their job correctly. I was pleased with the accuracy. Now delivery, this is the only bad part of the whole situation. They did arrive a day late. I understand that they had some problems on the road. They did call and let us know that they were going to be late and I commend them for that. All in all the company was good and I don't have too much to complain about. My wife is satisfied and these people really took the time to do a good job with our move so we wanted to say thank you to Century moving services. Bill and Janet Hartnett

Century Moving Services, this is a moving company that knows how to please customers. I will let you know that the only thing that they did do wrong was show up super late. I will explain the whole story to this website but I do not want to discount that they still did a very good job despite the fact that were late. We called Adrianna and she explained the entire situation, I swear we had to of called her quite a few times and she always got back to us in a reasonable time, I was quite satisfied with that as well.:) So here's the skinnny on the whole move, the guys showed up a few hours late, ok no problem. They were great after that. I am pleased to say that after that they were fine and worked hard.BUT when they delivered they were late too, but this time only an hour, so all in all i couldn't be that mad at them. For real though they were great guys and we were very happy that my partner and I chose to go with them because they were really great guys with big hearts. I am surprised at how well the entire thing did end up panning out and we will for sure be calling to thenk them over the phone. Great job guys, Century Moving Services you are great.

I imagine that employees have written reviews for each of the company names that these crooks have gone by. Unreliable is an understatement as they will come to the house when you least expect them to and right before you give up hope and plan of leaving your deposit behind. When they do show up they will bill you astronomical sums and hold your belongings ransom. If and when they show up, your things will be battered or broken or missing and when you call them they will yell and scream or worse, you won't be able to reach anyone...ever. Avoid them at all costs!

We recently used these people a couple of weeks ago for our move. We had a wonderful experience. To begin with we were able to book with only a week's notice. The price was much better than all the other quotes I found. The 3 man crew was great. They were on time, very professional and fast. It was a great experience, I highly recommend for all moving needs.

I've heard lots of horror stories about moving companies in New Jersey, so of course I was nervous and had low expectations, but Century Moving was a great moving company by any standards. They were professional, on time, gave a quote and actually stuck with it. I moved and they did the entire move in two hours, and that is given the fact I moved into a fourth floor walk up. Nothing was damaged and they were very responsive to all phone calls and emails leading up to the move. I would highly recommend them and will definitely be using them in the future.

Century Moving crew made us feel that nothing could stand in their way and that no task was too big to tackle. We had a number of large furniture which they quickly dismantled with their tools . All our furniture and household belongings arrived in excellent condition with no breakages or scratches. The crews worked very efficiently between themselves and showed excellent team work. I would have no hesitation in recommending them for any need move.

Century moving services did a great job moving me from Maryland, MD to Virginia Beach, VA in good time. Nothing destroyed no scratches and no scam charges. Would use them again if I need to relocate in future. 5/5 stars for making our move easy and not ripping us on the price.

We moved from Cape Cod to NYC in 4 days and it was all charged with a price that I still can't believe was so cost-efficient. I recommend their services and I for sure recommend you to check the company. Hands down this moving was better than I expected.

I have had a great experience with Century Moving and they are totally awesome! I talked to their salesman in the office, and he was very friendly and helpful. I scheduled a last minute move with him and he worked longer hours talking to me on the phone in order to accommodate me which was a great sign of professionalism. I had a not so big move and my team was the head foreman and two helpers who arrived at my house on time and brought large boxes for my furniture and other smaller items. They did the job fast and packing was done in only couple of hours. Although they were fast, they did not make a single scratch so my things look perfect now as they did before. I am very happy that my furniture is intact and that they took a great care when dealing with it. These people were amazing. They worked really hard and all the time while working, they were friendly, courteous and professional. I bought food and drinks for them because they really deserved it. The salesman called me several times to follow up and make sure that everything was going smoothly with the move. All in all, my move went smoothly and there were no problems with anything. It did not cost me much at all. These guys did their job perfectly! Thank you so much Century Moving

I didn't think they'd do their work so good and so fast. My relocation from suburban Detroit to Marlborough area went good and in 3 days. There weren't any stops or delays and it cost me a reasonable price.Century Moving Services is my go to moving company now

I never write these reviews but just had too!! Just want to give a HUGE thank you to you all! I never have been more pleased than I am with your service! You took MORE than perfect care of our belongings and placed everything properly in every room of the house. Our drivers (forgive me I don't have their names off hand) even went above and beyond tightened up some items for me and did EVERYTHING I needed done. It comes very much appreciated since my wife is away for 6 months and i had to make this move alone with our two little children. I will be recommending you to anyone who is need of this service! I will be calling you again when we find our permeate home as well! Thank you again! The Johnsons...
