Bulldog like other licensed Georgia Movers bill local moves by the hour. Your cost is totally dependent upon how prepared you are to move and how much you are willing to do yourself. Please be aware that the total cost per hour is not the best way to evaluate a mover. Also, if you understate your move (as was the case here) it will certainly not lower your cost. We ended up using two trucks and six men because this customer committed to moving all the boxes and accessories herself which she did not do. She was also not packed or ready when we arrived at her home. In fact, understating your move will more than likely increase your cost because we will understaff your move. Understaffing or overstaffing your move both will cost you extra money.

Great experience...until they got my money! Every single person was fantastic, until after they drove away with my payment. They lost a custom table top, a set of nesting tables, and broke some glassware. It happens, but now trying to get them to replace only ONE of those things is AWFUL! They like to hide behind what you report as damaged...ON moving day!! NO one I know could ever unpack and inspect a houseful of goods in 30 mins before the movers leave ON moving day! I even gave them the benefit of the doubt by unpacking everything first, to make sure things were actually gone, before making a claim. It's been weeks now, and they're just ignoring me. I have called, emailed...multiple times. Here's the kicker, the value of the only thing I need replaced, is $130!! Better Business Bureau is next step!

Sorry for the late reply. We have procedures to prevent missing our lost items on local moves. For long distance moves you must check your inventories also! At the completion of loading you at your origin we will ask you to do a walk through your house room by room and to make sure nothing has been left behind. At the completion of your move at destination we will ask that you check our truck both the cab and the box to make sure nothing has been left inside. Certainly items can and do get lost, misplaced or even thrown away during a move. Please make sure you take the time to make sure your shipment is complete before the job is done. Packing and labeling is also important for a good move. Lost and misplaced items are common and most are found sometimes even years later.
This is a company that will not pay their employees right they cheat them out of what they work for. Worked for them over 70 hours and only got paid $200 dollars this company are ran by degenerats who take from those who don't have now you know.

DO NOT hire bulldog movers. Movers dropped my washing machine off the truck, damaged my new home, and dropped many of my boxes. Washing machine was left in the garage after being damaged. Customer service was terrible. They do not resolve issues, or respond to calls/emails. Do your self a favor and hire someone else. I regret hiring them and wish I had researched them more before I booked with them.

This customer elected to value their shipment at $300 total for their entire shipment. Most states and the federal government offer only $.60/lb. which would have been less. While relatively rare, accidents like these do happen during moves. Value your shipment according to what it is worth to you and you will be compensated according to the valuation you select.
Joe White and his able crew of Avery, Quinton, Ivan, Mark, and Curt were top notch in all respects. Not only did they have "hustle" and motivation to get it done, they had a sense of care and knowledge about how to handle our large, heavy furniture including taking it up a flight of stairs in our new house that has a turn in the middle. They didn't leave any marks on our walls or damage any of our crystal or furniture. Calling Bulldog Atlanta was a great decision for us with a fabulous outcome. Highly recommend!

The crew was great but broke our refrigerator. We bought insurance and they refuse to take our calls or reply To emails. They have given us multiple lame Excuses as to why they can't talk to us. So we now have an attorney and will Be seeing them in court. They are scam artists! Do not use them ever!!

Thank's your for your compliment on our crew. Looks like our guys did a good job and they did the right think here. In this situation your refrigerator would not fit through the door. We advised you of this at the time and told you that we could not disassemble your fridge. We are not trained in water and electrical connections and we do not have the expertise to handle the disassembly and reassembly of all models. We are not appliance technicians. In the course of helping you held the fridge so you could remove the doors a door fell off and was damaged. Our movers, like all national van line movers, are personally responsible for any damage that they cause by their negligence during the course of a move. This damage was not a result of their negligence. Unfortunately, we cannot take responsibility for the damage that you agreed to be responsible for in writing prior to the disassembly of your fridge. Finally, I would always counsel my customers to sell the fridge with the house. The time and risk of moving your fridge is generally not worth any perceived cost savings. Erik Christensen, Owner
Terrible customer service....damages galore to my antiques.....denial of claims on the additional insurance I purchased.....and they refuse to take my phone calls. Horrible, Horrible, Horrible! Run the other way and don't look back. Spent thousands of dollars and got a lot of damage to furniture worth thousands of dollars!

We run a 92% customer satisfaction rate. I looked you up under both Tara and Marie in our system. Can't find anything that matches with your review timing. If you contact customer service we can check your file and see what problems we may be able to solve. Damage is always repaired according to the condition of your goods prior to shipment and the valuation you have selected.
I had requested experienced movers especially with antiques and delicate furniture. When they arrived - two of the men were experienced and three were under age 20 - don't think one of them was even 18. They didn't measure a large piece before trying to move it -so jammed the sliding glass doors and damaging the lock. We had to tell them to turn the piece of furniture and it would get thru the door easily. One slid and antique cedar chest across carpet and broke one leg - two more fell off later, and large scratch on top of it. Leg on an antique dresser was broken off also. They do not use moving straps - guys don't even wear back belts for their own safety. Foreman was argumentative, bad attitude - said "you want it moved right?" Paid higher price to get quality move and by end of move - couldn't wait for them to leave.

We certainly employ a lot of men and a few women of all ages. We use all trained and background checked men and women. We do not use straps our equipment to move furniture except in certain cases. All furniture is hand toted. Back supports are generally not considered best practice today. If you have damage to your household goods as a result of your move please contact customer service. Damages will be repaired according to the valuation you have selected for your move.
This is my first time posting here, but I feel compelled to do so now. Unfortunately, I hired Bulldog to move me a couple of months ago. It was rainy and it was inconvenient to move my gun safe because of the wet ground, so the guys asked if they could come back later and do it. Trying to be a nice guy, I agreed. Now, having called them to come by and make good on their word, they want to charge me $200 to move it (after waiving the trip charge and 2 hour minimum they would otherwise charge), which is probably a 10 minute job, tops. They could easily swing by on the way to another job and knock it out, but they go on and on about trip charges, 2-hour minimums, blocking time, how much someone else would charge me to do it, etc... Immaterial. That is just unacceptable. In addition, there was some damage to my paint and molding which I never even mentioned to them and which I let slide because I could fix it myself. Not happy and do not recommend them.

Sorry you were not happy with our decision not to move your safe. We cannot safely move a safe on wet soggy ground. Someone is going to be hurt and we will not allow that. This is an issue that your moving consultant could easily handle. Please call them to discuss if you would like your safe moved.
I was ready for a break after the purchase process and they really answered the bell. They did a phenomenal job with all of our possessions and were very efficient in the process. People have horror stories for movers from time to time but glad to say my experience was the exact opposite. Thanks again to Jacob Byrd and his team on a job well done, and Mark Adams and the sales team in getting the move accommodated.

Terry and his crew at Bulldog Movers just recently assisted me with a residential move across town. My experience with them was very positive from start to finish. They arrived on time with formal introductions of the crew and conducted a walk-through with me to understand the logistics before they started any work. I was impressed with how quickly they got to work and made sure to appropriately protect each piece of furniture. They emptied out my house in about 2 hours and that included wrapping up all the furniture and loading it onto both their truck as well as a storage container. Once we reached the destination, the logistics were more difficult as they had to unload downstairs, use an elevator, and walk down a long corridor to get to my new place. However, they continued to be efficient and didn't slow down their progress. My furniture and boxes were placed where I wanted them and there was no damage. I was thoroughly satisfied with their service and would highly recommend Bulldog.

I can't say enough about Bulldog Movers. My family and I recently moved and it was such a pleasant experience moving with this company. From the beginning I knew we were in good hands. The sales rep, Jim McArthur was professional and honest with us. On moving day our crew, led by Stan, Rocked!! They worked so well together and the process was seamless, not to mention they were fast and very professional. I have had experience with many moving companies as a realtor and will highly recommend Jim McArthur and Stan's crew to all of my clients!

Bulldog Movers was recommended to me by a good friend. I bought a townhome and needed assistance moving out of my apartment. Jim McArthur contacted me with a very reasonable quote. I had received quotes from other moving companies as well, some were lower than Bulldog and others were higher. I'm a firm believer of "you get what you pay for", and I wasn't about to go with the lowest quote. On the day of the move, four men showed up at the time promised. They efficiently wrapped my furniture with shrink wrap and furniture pads. I had furniture in two bedrooms, the living room, and dining room that needed to be moved. The entire move-out and move-in process took less than four hours (including the 15 mile drive!), and not a single item was damaged. The men were super friendly, and I was more than happy to distribute generous gratuities once they were finished. I will now recommend Bulldog Movers to anyone I know who is in need of a moving company!!

If you need to move call Bulldog today. They moved me from Cartersville to Smyrna on March 28th 2015, and as far as moves go it was the best I have ever had. They wrapped everything, did not break or scratch anything, and were extremely friendly & professional. I was dreading moving day for months, but with these guys helping me, my dread was misguided. If you need to move in the Atlanta Metro area call Bulldog Movers today!!

Carl, the guys that were sent over were VERY professional and absolutely a delight to have here. Each one was polite, strong, on the ball and a pleasure to talk with. They did an awesome job, never scratching not one item and not banging any walls. They had to deal with a flight of stairs and some heavy things and they did with the strength of Samson! Well done, Mark, David, Juan, and Percy. Anyway, they were all gentlemen and did a magnificent job. My hat off to them for all they did in such a short time! God bless you all, Betsy P Italy for Christ
