I interviewed 4 moving companies and went with Sunrise due to recommendations, Charlene the moving coordinator, and price. I was not disappointed. There were no glitches or surprises. No damages.... Always on time. Charge was binding from the beginning and very fair. Besides Charlene, Eli the head mover was awesome!!! He and crew worked harder and faster than you could even ask for. Would HIGHLY recommend. Sue J.VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »
I had used Sunrise in my first move about 2 years ago and this time around I called them with a 4 day notice and they definitely put together a good crew of 4 guys. Steve and his crew of Kone, Louis... and Jorge. It was a whole day job and two trips after all the stuff was moved intact. It was a 3 brdm move. Disassembled and re-assembled the furniture properly. This was a job well done with good coordination and teamwork.VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »

Eli helped me take care of a last minute move. He was great, made it all happen. Kevin and the crew arrived on time, finished sooner than expected, went above and beyond to take the stress out of having to rush a move. Definitely my mover for life! I highly recommend Sunrise Moving to take care of your moving needs!
I have used Sunshine Moving three times--most recently in May 2012. Each time I shopped around and found their rates to be the best. I appreciated the fact that I could have an estimator come out at no charge to see our home firsthand, inventory our key items, and provide an estimate with a "not to exceed cost" for peace of mind. The movers were quality guys who were respectful and worked efficiently.
I've actually used Sunrise Movers twice. The first time, we had them scheduled for 8 am and they didn't show up till noon. I didn't get a call letting me know this until about 11 -- so I went on thinking for hours that they just bailed on me. No one answered the main number. They were very nice and did the move well, so I called them back for the second move. I assumed that them being late was just a fluke. This time, they were scheduled for 8 am and then called to say that the wouldn't be there until noon and then they didn't show up until 3. From noon till 2:30 we didn't get a call letting us know of this second time change. One of the men brought his son along, which worked out okay but the son clearly didn't know what he was doing. Some of the furniture got scratched (presumably by a ring, because it was in the places you would hold the pieces). Multiple times, one of the men got a call and he said it was the next customer and just turned the phone off without answering. Though my husband thinks this last point is unfair (as they are doing manual labor all day), I think their smell was over the top -- it still lingers in the closet of the new apartment and it's been a few days of trying to air it out. The men from Sunrise have always been kind and relaxed and friendly, but I think, over all, that the job they've done could have been just as well done by some kids at college... but I paid for professionals.

They were excellent - the team that moved us was outstanding - Not only were they efficient and hard workers they were pleasant - no complaining even when I asked them to move the bunk bed one more time - Scott lead our team I will not make another move without him
Sunrise Movers has helped again. Great price, honest workers & very efficient! Arrived on time & finished quickly! Will be my only company for moving purposes. Thanks Eli & Charlene. JP
I contacted Sunrise Movers late December 2010 for a last minute move out of my apartment. Due to extenuating circumstances, I explained that I was uncertain of whether my things needed to go to storage or be moved to our next residence. I am very pleased to say that Sunrise Movers were very understanding and accomodating of the moving dilemna and offered the most courteous and professional service I ever received from a moving company. I would highly recommend them. All of the staff (the office staff, movers, and the owner-Eli) showed great care and delivered what was promised. I have recommended them to several friends and I intend on using this company again for my family's next move!
A big Thanks to Sunrise Moving. They sent us two great guys to unload our PODs at our new house. The guys that loaded them took 4.5 hours and Sunrise did it in 3. Amazing! Good attitudes, and athletic. We will talk to you again, and will use you if we ever need any more help. Fastest move‎‎ they came on time, took care of everything and even offered to help fix some of our furniture that needed re-assembling.‎
From start to finish these guys were the best. Christopher showed up at my house to give me an estimate and explained that while they may not be the cheapest movers around, they pay their employees well, and ensure that they have a staff who will take care of the items that they move. The estimate was a very fair price. Sunrise also has a ton of boxes that they are willing to lend you for your move which as you can imagine, is a real treat when you are preparing to move. The day before moving day they called to confirm their arrival. The move when smoothly, and nothing broke or got scraped. The guys were happy to place items where I wanted them in my new house, and they even helped me with some things I couldn't do myself (do to my having a new baby to carry around during the move). I discovered these guys here on Kudzu, and definitely recommend you use them as well.
I was happy to have been referred to Sunrise Moving and Storage by a web-based Moving Company Locator. I was very-well pleased to have selected Sunrise from the options provided, as they were prompt in arriving, used the utmost care in assisting me with packing and labeling my belongings, and their charges were well within my budget (moving is expensive and they understand). Eli and Charlene have been diligent in working with me on my monthly storage fees during the stretch of time that I was unemployed, as well as allowing me the time that I needed to get my finances in order. For me, that was a blessing, and I can rest assured in knowing that BIG corporations, such as U-Haul, etc., would not have extended such graciousness to any customer. I applaud Sunrise Moving and Storage for being a customer-focused establishment, flexible, and above all, professional. I will use them again and highly recommend them to anyone looking for an A-1 moving and storage company.

The movers did not pack the truck correctly leaving not enough room for my goods. I had to take some of my goods myself. Not a positive moving experience

Sunrise Moving & Storage provided the absolute WORST customer service I have ever experienced! Eli, the owner, is unprofessional, dishonest and a horrible business man. I have moved over ten times as an adult (military) and have never experienced anything close to the nightmare that Sunrise put me through. In a nutshell, we needed our goods packed on a Thursday and finished loading and moved to new location on Friday. I confirmed this verbally 4 separate times with both Johnny, the sales rep and Charlene, the owners wife. I later came to find that it didn't matter what Johnny and I discussed, once we signed on Sunrise to handle our move, everything was up to Sunrise. Their movers were almost 2 hours late both days of the packup, my goods were delivered to Memphis 2 days late, and Eli called me a liar to my face (as he did not believe that I did, indeed, needed my goods out on Friday because I had tenants moving in Saturday morning). Eli, and his wife, (who by the way run this fine business out of their living room) are CROOKS as they charged my husband and I over 300 dollars more than our quote and signed receipt stated. It took me contacting Wheaton Van Lines for them to remove the overcharge. They claimed it was some sort of "waiting fee" . I guess they forgot we were the ones who had to wait two extra days for delivery for our goods. Save yourselves the pain, DO NOT EVER USE SUNRISE MOVING & STORAGE!

In reponse to this review, we would like to address several allegations made by this shipper. First, she was NEVER told that her shipment would load and deliver in the same day, as not only would it be physically impossible, but it would be illegal. She was told on several occasions that her shipment would be packed on Thursday 12/17, loaded on Friday 12/18, and delivered between 12/19-28, with the possibility that it would be delivered on the 19th or 20th depending on what time they finished loading on Friday 12/18. This shipment was moving 367 miles away, nearly a 7 hour drive, and there are laws and regulations that we must follow. On loading day we explained since the crew did not finish loading until after 6 PM we would send the crew out in the AM, and delivery would be made on the morning of Sunday December 20, 2009. She crossed out the delivery spread on the Bill of Lading and changed the dates in her hadnwriting to deliver on 12/19/09. We had her correct that upon delivery. She alleges that we were two days late, when in fact we arrived exactly when we told her we would. Instead of paying for her services and allowing the shipment to be unloaded, she withheld payment until after 1:30pm. We had to call the police to her home, as they refused to pay for her move, stating we were 1 day late. Now in her response she claims we were 2 days late. In fact, we were not late at all. Our driver waited patiently until payment was received so that he may deliver her goods. She agreed to the $315 waiting fee, and later disputed it. She states in her response, that she has moved several times as an adult with the Military, if this were true, then she would know the rules regarding delivery, as the Military have members educated about these things. I personally explained to her on the Wednesday before packing as well as on packing day that it would be illegal to have her goods loaded and delivered that far away in one day. She also alleges that she confirmed on 4 separate occasions with Johnny and Charlene. This is not true. It was explained to her by Johnny, as well as by Charlene on several occasions that it would be within a day or two, depending on what time the crew finishes loading. She also alleges that Sunrise Moving is run out of a living room, google the address it is clearly a warehouse in an industrial district. The $315 was agreed upon and is a legal charge for having the driver, truck and crew wait over 5 hours to receive payment. She alleges we are "crooks" however, she fails to mention that we moved more weight than agreed upon, delivered on a Sunday without any additional charges. The only charge in addition to her estimated amount, was for the waiting time. We arrived exactly when we told her we would. We had to call the police to her home to explain this to her. This shipper clearly is dishonest.
Had the worst experience with them. Arrived by 6 hours late.did not offer the initial quote they gave.very poor customer service.The owner is a very irresponsible person.I wish I had given them negative rating if available.
