"The move went very smoothly. The four man crew was polite and fast, thanks so much!"
"I was and am ill during the move, and Marathon literally did everything for me! I had 2 great crews: one for packing, the 1st day, one for the actual move the 2nd day!"
"I've used marathon for all my moves and storage facility as well. Crew arrive at 8:30am and I was in my new place by 11:30am. The crew was fast and took care of my property to ensure items where moved properly. Happy to use them again and to recommend them to others , almost went with another company because of my overall estimate and price, but there's a saying the devil you know is always better than the devil you don't know. Why rock the boat."
"This was the best moving crew I have ever come across!"
"Excellent job, will use them in the future!"
"I was very nervous about this move. it was one item. my mother's 1936 antique gas stove. I couldn't have asked for a better moving company. from office staff to the two men that made the move -- efficient, reassuring -- no problems from beginning to end. thank you, Marathon Moving."
"Lillian was especially helpful during an unexpected delay. Thanks."
"Lucas and his team are exceptional! I highly recommend using Marathon for your next move!"
"They worked very hard and did a great job."
"We have been using Marathon for years and will continue to do so! They are courteous, thorough, speedy and careful!"
"Nick Devries and his crew did an altogether superb job for us. They were careful, kind, considerate, efficient, and wonderfully skillful. Not one item they moved was damaged. They completed their work a day and a half earlier than the estimate called for--and thereby saved us nearly $2,000. My wife and I are deeply grateful to Marathon for its help and support--and we also would like to thank Andy Willinger, a friend of Kathy Kean's, who originally urged us to contact Marathon about our planned move, and Lucas, who finalized the estimate and gave us excellent advice throughout."
"Marathon Moving were very careful with my furniture and very nice to deal with , I would highly recommend them"
"I recommend Marathon Movers wholeheartedly! From my first call through and including the quote process, the packing, moving, storage and free pick up of opened/flattened boxes and paper in bags, I was wowed. It was also great to have a few of the same team both pack and move me, and then one of the guys who moved me pick up the recycling. It was like dealing with family!"
"Our move was painless and seamless. Thanks for all your help. Everyone was very professional and easy to work with."
"They were prompt,cortious and professional. First for me to have someone who actually showed up when they said they would."
"Everyone from Marathon Moving were professional and efficient. My 3 man moving crew were outstanding, and they all worked so hard in the 7 hours to make the move go smoothly. I will definitely recommend Marathon Moving to friends! Thanks for a successful and stress free move. I will definitely use you again in the future. "
"Thank you for making a hard day (I had lived in the house I was leaving for 30 years) easier."
"We received exactly what was promised - a headache -free, smooth, no-nonsense move. Great people, great experience."
"Excellent service, highly recommend!!"
"They were helpful, professional and couldn't have managed the move better. I was very pleased and grateful."
"Thank you for helping me move. Though moving can be stressful the Marathon team made it easy. Additionally the two movers who moved me were very nice, helpful and professional. If I had to move again I would request those to movers to move me."
"I've recommended Marathon to my 8 brothers and sisters and friends to choose as their moving company. I was very pleased!"
"Marathon did a great job. Very pleased. Thank you! "
"I could not have been happier with my decision to use Marathon Movers for my move. Not only did everything arrive intact but was pleased to see it was wrapped in recyclable paper. Everyone I dealt with at the company was helpful and considerate. I could not have asked for anything better. "
"Very professional and attentive crew. Exceeded my expectations in all areas."
"Wonderful crew. Kind and hard working men. A pleasure to have around on our moving day!!!"
"I moved twice in the past year and received great service each time. The guys worked very hard and were very careful with our furniture and boxes. I couldn't ask for better service and I highly recommend Marathon Moving."
"Mark & his crew were exceptional, packing and loading in one day with clear teamwork and efficiency. They showed up on time and worked with virtually no down time. Everything arrived as scheduled and intact. I can't say enough about how pleased we were with the service."
"Everything was first rate. Lucas, Steve, Mark the crew…all really impressive. Check out the Yelp I just posted : > )"
"We were very happy with our movers - mark gonzalez and matt! they were fantastic!!!!"
"I already sent an e-mail to Kathy from your office telling her how greatly satisfied my husband and I were concerning our move on July 15, 2014. We moved from Randolph to Middleboro. The move was flawless and the three young men were extremely professional and very polite. They represented your company well. I would refer others and what was a bigger surprise was that the price was less than the quote. Thank you so much... Kathy & Jerry C."
"It was a very hot day and these people could not have been more accommodating and pleasant!"
"Your crew are always courteous and professional They made a usually very stressful event Not stressful From start to finish Your dedication caring for every detail is very appreciated Thank you jim and maria read "
"Our move involved the packing of a POD and the moving of some of our stuff to an apartment. Everyone at Marathon from the office to the moving crew were professional and a pleasure to deal with. The move was done on time and under budget and we will definitely use Marathon again. "
"We were extremely impressed with Marathon. At all levels you were responsive and efficient. The moving crew worked hard and moved us to our new home quickly and with no issues. The total bill was extremely resonable. Great! Thanks. "
"Marcus and his crew did a great job, everyone was very polite and respectful, I appreciated it"
"I had a 5-mile piano move and the crew got there early and had it on the truck before I arrived! Then they carried it over my tile floor so the piano wouldn't scratch it. Gail and Paul have a great, local, family-owned business. They treat your property as carefully as their own. "
"This was n excellent move, the best we have ever had. The moving crew was extremely professional and took great care with our belongings. It was very impressive."
"The movers we had from Marathon Movers were amazing! fast and efficient. They not only moved all of our furniture, they took apart the necessary furniture and reassembled it after the move! I would definitely use Marathon Movers again and refer them to family and friends."
"Very pleased. Would not hesitate to recommend this company."
"You guys were great! I will recommend you to my friends. Thank you!"
"Given the trying circumstances under which I had to move, this couldn't have gone any smoother. I was beyond impressed with ?the professionalism and efficiency of the crew."
"Thank you so much to all the staff who helped us at various stages of this process. We were moving my aging inlaws out of their house into an apartment. Many of there things had sentimental value and were fragile. The staff that packed and unpacked were wonderful. We changed our plans several times and were always treated with courtesy even when I am sure we were frustrating! Thank you, thank you! "
"The entire move from start to finish was professional, prompt and done very efficiently. I would recommend Marathon Movers to my friends and family. Thank you very much for doing such a wonderful job."
"This is overdue as is a glowing Angie's List review which if I ever get unpacked and organized I will complete! If there were higher ratings than "Very Satisfied" we would choose them. From beginning to end, which included over six months of storage, not only was the process flawless, but every person we encountered helped make a stressful time far easier. The packing, loading and delivery crews were outstanding not merely getting the job done, but their teamwork and attitudes were simply incredible and it was a pleasure to have them. I would recommend Marathon to anyone needing a moving company and would be happy to serve as a reference whenever needed."
"Great Team from start to Finish! made moving a bit easier."
"The two young men who moved us were exceptional. They were professional and kind, paying very close attention to every detail. We couldn't be more pleased."
"Perfect as always - I will use you guys again. The men were very respectful of my wife, who was newly pregnant and feeling unwell. I really appreciate the professionalism of your crew, and I am grateful for their help. In this world, one pays for quality, and I am more than happy to do so for movers like yours."
"Great crew making a complicated move to two sites look easy! Andthe job was completed before the expected time! Thanks, marathon!"
"The Sales staff, Lucas in particular, did a fabulous job in communicating what the moving team would be doing from beginning to end! This helped tremendously in preparing for the move! Since we needed to store our household furniture, etc. for a short period of time, this was also outlined in the proposal! The moving team was outstanding! They treated our old and new home as if it were their own! They took great care in preparing the furniture for storage making sure every piece was protected! Not a single thing was damaged upon arrival at our new location....and the same team moved us to our new location! This was an added bonus! It made us feel even more comfortable, because we were familiar with everyone ..... It was like having your own personal movers! I could go on and on about Marathon Movers, but I am afraid I would run out of writing space! So I will end it by saying "THANK YOU"! Barbara and George Perkins"
"Josh and his crew took very good care of us both times we recently moved. I was impressed with the care they took along with the quick pace that they worked. I will recommend your company whenever I get the opportunity. Thanks for everything."
"You sent a crew of 4 great guys who came with a great attitude and right until the last piece of furniture was in place were always willing to make any changes we wanted done. Having not moved for over 44 years, and hoping not to do so any too soon, we would definitely call Marathon again. Thank you!"
"Made the move so much easier. All the movers were friendly and helpful, would definitely recommend to others."
"Nate, Xavier and Nick were great! We couldn't have been happier with them or Marathon Movers. They were friendly, personable and professional. They made our move as easy as it could be. We are looking forward to using Marathon Movers again for our next move!"
You have the best staff.
"Packing and moving crews were terrific: hard-working and friendly. We were very pleased to work with them."
"Everything was perfect. Jamie is a good leader, and motivated his crew very well. They were all very courteous."
"I would highly recommend your company to anyone who needed your services. The two gentlemen who moved me were very professional and respectful. I hope you let them know they did a great job. Gratefully yours, Denise"
"You guys are the best... won't use anyone else ever!"
"Good crew. Very proffesional."
"Our movers were the very best we have ever used, and we have moved several times. The guys were wonderful!"
"Our movers were the very best we have ever used, and we have moved several times. The guys were wonderful!"
"I would be happy to recommend your company to any of my friends or family! Outstanding!"
"Courteous, fast and careful, I am a repeat customer that is glad to have found Marathon!"
"I have used Marathon Moving for my past two moves and I would highly recommend them. They provided the highest quality customer service at every step of the process: intake, estimate, and the actual move. They made both of my moves go by smoothly. The crew was prompt, efficient, attentive to my property, and very friendly and pleasant. Excellent!"
- Patti D.
"Marathon made moving day stress free!! They were prompt and knowledgeable. Everything wAs packed and unloaded without am issue!!! Great job!! Would highly recommend!!!"
"This was my third time using Marathon Movers and I was so impressed with the quality of service we received. Mike, the Cew Leader, was beyond wonderful to work with - professional, courteous and efficient - and his staff, Zach and Paolo, were responsive friendly and so hard working. Our move was completed in under the quote timeframe and every last detail was attended to. With moving being so stressful in and of itself, it is so comforting to work with consummate professionals who you know will come through for you in a big way. Our sincere thanks for a job very well done!!!"
- Pamela B.
"Great moving company - his company is great. Very attentive to our concerns and special needs. They were obviously very knowledgeable and had a very professional and friendly crew of guys. They moved us and we used their storage and everything went smooth. I couldn't recommend them more. "
- Bruce o.
"Marathon Moving is moving in the right direction! - My husband and I used the Marathon Moving company when we moved from Jamaica Plain to Derry, N.H.. We were impressed with the excellent service that we received. The staff at Marathon Moving were helpful from start to finish. The estimate we received was accurate, the packing job the movers performed was thorough and the actual move was done on time and with no damage. It was great to work with such an honest company. Since then we have recommended Marathon Moving to several family members and friends. Everyone who has used them has had the same great experience! Go Marathon-Its worth it!!!!!!!!!"
- Anne L.
"Did a great job for me - recommended. These guys did my move for a great price and with excellent service and attention to detail. Highly recommended. They did a great job packing a few things for me, and they have excellent know-how in terms of how to simplify the move and get it done quickly and cleanly. At the end I was surprised at how low the price was, even though it invovled two hours of driving they did not overcharge me at all."
"Excellent Move Experience!!!. We moved from our first home in Milton to our new home in Weston. Marathon provided us with packing of all our "stuff" and moved us on one of the hottest days of the year. The crew was conversational, efficient, professional and above all right on estimate. From first contact Marathon was very helpful. I highly recommend checking them out."
"What a great job. These guys were the most efficient and effective movers I have ever dealt with. They swiftly and carefully moved all of our things in and out. The estimate came in slightly below the quoted price. The movers were friendly and proactive in making sure every thing got to the right place. You wouldn't expect guys being paid by the hour to finish in less than the estimated time but they did. The CEO even contacted me to see how my moving experience was. WOW! I was pleasantly surprised by the entire experience. I would absolutely recommend them and would use them again."
"Moving sucks. Moving when its a 90 degree day, with Amazon-jungle type humidity sucks brutally. Having professional, organized, friendly, courteous, know-their-stuff movers makes moving in these conditions so much more bearable!!!
They made a positive impression from the first phone call, they were able to send someone to my place to give me an estimate after hours (a huge help for me). The fact that they take the time to send someone out to give you an estimate (makes SO much more sense than giving a blind estimate over the phone and it was well below the 2 other "phone" bids I received!) went over big with me. Day of the move - they showed up right when they said the would and did not waste a moment. Everything was carefully wrapped, anything that needed to be disassembled was done quickly an carefully and they checked and double-checked what was supposed to go. My new apartment was tricky to get some furniture into - but they hoisted the huge and cumbersome items over the back deck and took care in doing so. The heat and humidity (it was brutal) did not have any effect on their level of helpfulness, friendliness or professionalism. Not only did they come in under time, but under budget as well.
Marathon absolutely made my moving experience extremely positive in spite of extreme conditions. Would highly recommend!"
- Joy E.
"We used Marathon for a move across states that included placing a large amount of things into storage for a couple of months. These guys were professional and hard working at all times. They helped us pack some loose items remaining in the old house...and they helped assembled some furniture when we arrived at our new house. An example of the above and beyond is they took a couple of doors out temporarily to help facilitate getting things through...and then replaced the door when they were finished. Excellent and highly recommended."
- K G.
"All at Marathon Movers treated me GREAT; professionally and kindly. The guys on the truck were awesome. From the very beginning planning stages to the final move, all went very smoothly. My moving experience was a great success, THANKS TO ALL AT MARATHON MOVERS."
- Greg G.
"I have moved often and have had many successful moves, but no company has been as terrific as Marathon. This was a really complicated move, with all my stuff going into storage for a few months, then being delivered to two different addresses in two different states, and making two additional stops along the way to pick up more things going to the final destination. There were so many possible places for errors, and all went perfectly. I had them pack a pottery collection of over 100 pieces and many framed paintings, and OMG everything arrived perfectly. When I realized I had some furniture in their storage facility that I wasn't going to be able to fit in my new place, they took it out and donated it to a local charity for me, delivering it at no extra charge. The movers were all permanent staff, not pick-ups, well trained, and incredibly professional. The same person who led the moving team on the front end, moving into storage, led the team on the back end, moving into my new place. Every single person I dealt with was professional, on top of the details, considerate, and definitely prepared to do all kinds of extras to make sure everything went smoothly. I had used a different mover for my last three moves and gave Marathon a try because a friend recommended them so highly. They were better and even lower cost than my former "high end" mover. And when my daughter, who lives in another state, needed a mover, Marathon recommended one of their affiliates near her, and they were great and she had her best move ever. Marathon is just fabulous - and I am very picky!"
- Marsha Jacobson
"This is the ONLY moving company you need. Thank you, Marathon! I can't say enough great things about the moving crew. They were so professional and efficient and took such care in packing my belongings and moving me out of the Boston and down to Baltimore. Especially when I got down here, and decided not to move into the apartment I had secured because it was awful, Steve and Jamie were such a great support for me. It all worked out for the best - I have a great place now, and we were able to move right in - but they were so positive and it felt like they were friends. And thank you for all you did to accommodate the budget so I could choose Marathon. It was such a great experience."
"These guys are great. I had to schedule them at the last minute because the group scheduled thru Moving Staffers couldn't reschedule. Moving Staffers is a joke but these guys arrived on time, worked very hard, came in at budget, broke nothing and were bright and smart. I cant say enough good things except that you should use them! Really! totally professional and friendly."
"I have moved many times and Marathon was by far the best experience I have had. Moving can be a real pain as you know. I have used fly by night moving companies before so I know what crappy service was. It was like night and day with these guys! Highly recommend."
I just want to say that Nick and his crew did a super job of packing and moving. It was a pleasure working with them. Absolutely nothing was broken or damaged. The hardest part was unpacking - all of the paper generated by the cushioning that was protecting my stuff. A small price to pay for a great move. I am telling my real estate broker and anyone else moving in the near future – Marathon Moving is the ONLY one to choose.
- Thanks again, Margo T.
"Hi Kathy, You we're right !! Eleanor and I could not have been happier with all three of the guys and their work ethic. Everything went as smooth as it possible could have....... THANK YOU. I would and will recommend you guys to anyone I know."
- Regards, Michael H.
"Our experience with Marathon Moving was amazing!
We had four different companies come on-site to provide an estimate for our local move. Marathon provided the best experience of the four. The representative was business-like, but also friendly, and exuded a sense of competency, without using a hard-sell approach. (Representatives from the other companies were less professional, used a hard-sell approach, and were a little condescending when we asked questions).
We asked all four companies to include the same pieces of information in their estimates:
- A guaranteed-not-to-exceed estimate
- Insurance options
- An estimate of the cost of packing supplies that we would need to purchase (we were going to do our own packing)
All of them told us that their estimate would include those things, but Marathon was the ONLY company that actually included everything. The Marathon representative even went above and beyond that: he provided an inventory of the furniture that they were going to move (so that there was evidence for how he arrived at the estimate), he provided a breakdown of the number of boxes of each size that he thought we would need (his estimate turned out to be almost 100% accurate) and he recommended that it would be cheaper for us to purchase those supplies at Home Depot than it would be to purchase them through a moving company.
From a price perspective, Marathon's estimate was in the middle of the group; they weren't the cheapest, but they also weren't the most expensive. Because they were the only company that provided the guaranteed-not-to-exceed estimate, we were confident that at the end of the move we weren't going to be responsible for more than we expected.
During the packing process, we came up with some additional questions about how to pack certain items and the representative replied extremely promptly to all emails with the exact information that we needed.
We also had to request a few "special" accomodations as part of our move. We needed the move to begin a little later in the day than Marathon normally starts and we needed them to bring materials to protect carpets in common areas in the building. The representative told us that this was no problem and that he'd make note of it for the crew for moving day.
As promised, Marathon called us a couple of days prior to our move date to confirm everything.
Moving day was a phenomenal experience. The crew called us about 20 minutes before they arrived to let us know that they were on their way (and they showed up at exactly the time we had requested) and they came prepared to adhere to our "special" instructions for the carpets.
The 3-man crew worked quickly, but carefully and efficiently. It was obvious that all three members of the crew were experienced - they walked in the door, sized things up, and immediately came up with their plan for getting everything onto the truck. Every piece of furniture was quickly wrapped in blankets to protect it. There were a few things that we thought were going to be challenging for the crew, but each time, they attacked it like it was a fun challenge for them that keeps their jobs interesting and acted like nothing would faze them.
When we got to the new place, they unpacked everything quickly and efficiently. They provided some tips on where to put a few pieces of furniture and they were adamant that they wanted to make sure that they put things in the exact spots we wanted them (even when we said that it was okay to put something somewhere and we could move it ourselves at a later time, they kept telling us that they wanted to get things the way we wanted them). After everything was unloaded from the truck, they took us room-by-room and confirmed that everything was exactly where we wanted it.
The move took almost exactly the amount of time that had been estimated for us (yet another piece of evidence that Marathon really knows their business)."
- Stacia and Bryan
"We moved on March 27th – a part of our stuff went straight to storage and a different portion went to an apartment within the same town. Al and his crew; Sean, Dennis, Keiren and John were assigned to our move.
I want to start out by saying that this was an emotionally very difficult day for us, one that we had been dreading for some time. However, the entire crew was so friendly and professional, right off the bat we could tell we were in really good hands, and that helped turn the day around. They asked us what needed to be done, and very quickly our move began. They were so hardworking, very fast yet so careful with all of our things. They treated every single item with care, whether it was a family heirloom or a box of books. When we pointed out that a box had our fine china in it – we were told that they treat everything as if it is fine china and that proved to be absolutely true. I can’t tell you how grateful I am for that.
When we got to the apartment, despite the fact that we had previously measured everything, we had a hard time getting the girls’ room to look the way we wanted it to. Sean and Al were so patient as I asked them to move everything about 5 different times. Every time I apologized, they kept trying to assure me that it was more important that it was right for the kids, with smiles on their faces.
I have to say that selling our house, packing our things and moving out were some of the most stressful times our family has been through. I cannot express how much I was dreading the move day, I am happy to say that not only was it unwarranted, but it turned out to be the least stressful part of everything. That is due solely to your employees. Your crew is made up of gentlemen that are the utmost professionals and just wonderful people. It was an absolute pleasure to work with them; I hope that we have the opportunity to work with them again when we move our things to our new house."
- Sincerely, Jeff and Suna Grassi
"I just wanted to let you know that Dennis and his crew did an amazing job with our move, and they were very courteous, prompt, and professional.
I would be happy to recommend your company to anyone."
- Joshua Krefetz
"I just received your voicemail and wanted to say how wonderful your company and the movers were! Truly, they were incredibly hard-working and very, very careful. Please pass on my sincerest thanks. I know it wasn't an easy move given the 2 stops and the number of stairs involved. But, they kept going and were gracious in the process. I will definitely recommend Marathon to anyone I know who is moving."
"I was hesitant to use a moving service, but I had such a great experience with Marathon Movers that I would definitely use them again in a heartbeat. The movers were extremely polite, friendly, and efficient. Kudos to the whole team!"
- Camilla Reteki
You may have heard this about movers, some companies under bid and then hope to find a reason during the move to bump up the cost. Marathon won’t do this, they’ll give you the correct price up front. They’ve moved me twice into and out of storage and each time they did an excellent job. I have a very heavy and larger armoire and the previous company I used, Gentle Giant, brought a crane because it was too big to go up the stairs. I had a window taken out and they dangled it in to my bedroom. When we moved out of that house to storage, Marathon had a crane scheduled to do the same. But on my move day, the foreman took a look at the situation, canceled the crane(saving me a bunch of money), had his guys dissemble the armoire and took it down the steps. On delivery from storage to my new house, he reassembled it in the new bedroom. I’m not sure many movers would have done that as it reduced their final bill a little.
They are excellent.
- Kevin G. Flannery
"Were you satisfied with your move? Absolutely. "
"Did you receive a timely estimate? Yes."
"How would you rate your estimator? Sheila was excellent to work with. She let me know of all the extras (insurance, moving permit); there were no “surprise” charges on moving day."
"How would you rate your crew overall? Excellent – they could not have been better workers or more pleasant."
"Was your crew careful? They were very careful with my things. There was a single broken mug, and that was because of my lousy packing skills – not the moving men!"
"Was your crew courteous? Very courteous. I have two dogs and one of them barked the entire move, from the moment the men showed up until they left. I felt so bad for them! But they just laughed it off and did their work."
"Was your crew swift? They worked quickly but carefully. They were even helpful in terms of furniture placement. In some rooms I envisioned the furniture a certain way, and they could tell it would not fit or would obstruct a closet. They know their business and made suggestions as how furniture would fit best – they were right and I was wrong each time!"
"Would you recommend Marathon to a friend? 100% yes!"
"I could not have been more pleased with Marathon Movers for my July 15, 2011 move. The actual move matched the estimate. Moving is absolute hell: one of the worst, most stressful experiences a person can have. Marathon Movers made an awful day bearable with their professionalism, good humor, and efficiency. I would recommend them highly to anyone."
- Cindy Sragg
"I cannot tell you how amazing this company is. From Paul helping me organize the move, setting me up with packing materials to the follow up and then to the actual move! Steve was well versed and Connor and Darrell were phenomenal. I have to say, especially Connor made the day better by being so positive, helpful, interested and hard working. I Thank them for their excellence!!!!"
- Claudia Crain
"Just want to let the owner, Paul, know how pleased we were with Marathon Moving. First of all, I want to thank everyone I dealt with on the phone when planning our move. The move, which was today, June 10, 2011, was from West Roxbury to two Framingham locations and then to Ashland. All went well. A big thank-you goes to our movers, Sergiu and Steve, who did a great job with all of our belongings and were very personable and patient with us. We would definitely use Marathon Moving in any future moves. Thank you again. "
