Mountain Moving & Storage BBB Business Review

Tacoma Movers

When you’re making a move in or out of Tacoma, Washington, you want local movers who know the area and the industry well. In fact, our founder, Ed Tuohy, has been learning about the moving and storage industry since he was in high school and has even passed along his knowledge and expertise to his son, Patrick.

Since 1996, Ed has used his breadth of knowledge in the industry to better serve his community, and build and grow a family owned and operated business into one of Tacoma’s top-rated moving and storage companies.

“We have used several local companies in the past and have never been happy with the result, hence why we kept trying someone new. Mountain Moving & Storage are my go-to recommendation…”

They will then return to their office and create a quote which they will email to you within a few business days.

As a Local Realtor in Gig Harbor, it is always my goal to make moving day as smooth as possible and Mountain Movers did just that for my clients. I will definitely recommend them to my clients in the future.

The workers moved a restored juke box filled with CD’s that couldn’t be jostled too much, or I would have spent hours re-organizing them. It was very heavy and awkward, yet two of them handled it no problem. It was moved between two residences smoothly.... Initially we were not sure if it would take three people to move it, so a third mover was there, but went unneeded. The good news was that they were honest and did not charge me for the third person. I would have paid, since he was on the premises, and they refused to charge me. THAT is why I will hire them again in the future should I need to. Honest, efficient, personable work...the way it should be.Joeread more

Mountain Moving is who you want to handle your fine furnishings.I was pleasantly surprised at the care the movers took in securing my belongings. Pictures were wrapped in moving blankets, my dining chairs were wrapped. A heavy, awkward desk was moved... throug too narrow doorways without damaging the desk or door frames. The floors were protected with traffic runners. In all the packing and moving took less time than I anticipated, with extreme care. I would recommend them highly to my friends, you won't be disappointed.read more

These guys were amazing! The estimator called me back immediately, quoted a fair price and sent two great guys to move my mom. It was a long day and there wasn’t moment that they didn’t treat my mom with kindness and respect even when she had them move... one item three times! Efficient, prepared, energetic and professional. Could not have asked for more.read more

My husband and I would like to thank Ed and his crew for the wonderful job they did moving our 10x10 shed today. We feel it was a very good price for the service. Though it was a lot of hard work they put in and maneuvering around they had to do, they... maintained great attitudes and were friendly. They work very well together. We also want to thank Doug for his timely responses to us through e-mail. We will definitely recommend Mountain Moving and Storage to others who may need a building moved or moving in general. We are sure your quality of service would be the same. Thank youRichard and Elaine Maceread more

I've used MMS for several moves. They are great. No complaints whatsoever. The latest move January 2020 went as smooth as ever. Both moving men were respectful to us and my mom's belongings, considerate, friendly, and most importantly, efficient. You... won't be sorry if you choose them as your mover.read more

The gentleman I talked to on the phone to arrange a move didn't seem to have a good handle on what was going on. Had to call 4 times to check on my delivery because he wasn't sure where his crew was or when they had an opening. The moving crew was... phenomenal. They unloaded my entire 26' truck (due to an injury I had) in only an hour. No broken items and they were more than willing to be gentle with the more delicate items and even moved things into the rooms I asked for to ease the hassle of doing it myself. Great job guys I'm impressed.read more

Doug was a pleasure to work with scheduling our move and we couldn’t be happier with how quickly and smoothly everything went. The team was kind, punctual, laid down mats/plastic to keep floors and carpets clean, and moved/unloaded our things both safely... and speedily. We highly recommend - thank you!read more

Great experiences with Mtn Moving. I have used them twice - once when they were assigned to my military move from WA to HI, and a second time when I chose them for a move from one point in Tacoma to another.I can't comment on pricing for the first... move (paid for by military), but the second move's pricing was very fair. James (estimator) arrived as scheduled, provided a written estimate and tentatively scheduled a moving day. A 'what-to-expect on moving day' PDF was provided. He offered to provide boxes and packing materials, if needed.Movers (Todd, Tua, Fah) arrived on time on moving day. Walked thru, discussed basic plan and they got to work. Watched the guys move all items and they used standard equipment (carpeted dollies, pads, tie downs, etc). Everything was handled carefully and nothing was thrown or dropped. Load up time was less than estimated and very smooth. Unloading at the new house took even less time.All in all, an excellent experience. Simply put, the service provided was the service promised. I think prepping for moving day is 80-90% of what makes things go smoothly. We had everything boxed up, labeled, and staged by the doors of each room on moving day. Clothes taken out of closets and dressers and boxed up. Read thru the "what-to-expect" PDF and transported prohibited items ourselves before moving day (open chemical containers, alcohol, high value items). Everything you leave for the movers on moving day to deal with adds TIME. That, in turn, will increase your final cost, or torpedoes the whole move because of some showstopper.read more

We had a wonderful experience with Mountain Moving! The initial consult was informative and easy. The day of move was smooth- they arrived timely and moved quickly, making sure everything was taken care of. We had them pack some things also and... everything was packed with care. I felt their pricing was fair and I would definitely hire them again for any future moves.read more

My wife and I scheduled these guys to help us with our local move. We have used several local companies in the past and have never been happy with the result, hence why we kept trying someone new. These guys are my goto recommendation if you need... assistance moving. I called and reserved a team of 4 and two trucks about a week before our move. They let me know the price estimate and gave us the estimate time they would be there. They called to confirm the day prior and called the morning of to let us know they were on their way. The guys that showed up (Mark, Gabriel, Robert, Jesse) were polite and professional and knew what they were doing. We showed them what needed to go and they quickly got to work. They treated our stuff just like it was there own. They worked quickly and efficiently. Moving is always stressful, these guys made at least this part of it easy. Instead of shopping around for who may be the cheapest, save your self the hassle and call these guys to take care of your stuff.read more

Moving can be a nightmare but in our case the service we received from Mountain Moving was top notch! Beginning with the expert and personal assessment and attention from their front man, James Bender, to the timeliness and efficiency of the three men... who moved us (Germaine, Dante and Joe) we were moved with courtesy and without issue to our new place. My highest recommendation goes to Mountain Moving and their crew! Thanks a million. Chiara & Tom Montanteread more

We just wrapped up the first part of our military move, and Mountain Moving did a fantastic job! We have completed several moves over the last 5 years, and they have been the best company we've dealt with, no competition. Max and Dontae arrived on time... for the first day and got straight to work, packing up over half of our stuff (we have a lot of junk) in one day. The next day, they had an additional 2 people to help (Will and Gabe) and they completed everything by 2pm. Less than 2 days to pack up a 4 bedroom, 2-story home! They were friendly, professional, and efficient, and we would recommend them to all of friends as they prepare for their next PCS.read more

Jesus, Dave Jr. & 'M' were an awesome team!We are a dual military family, and have seen our fair share of moves. These guys SET THE STANDARD. We especially appreciated their prompt, professional, polite, efficient, and careful service. I've never... seen a team so detail oriented; they really took the time to CAREFULLY wrap items and protect them prior to moving. Inventory was clear and detailed, and they even dissembled a giant desk instead of removing the doorframe to move the desk out of our office (I was previously told desk doesn't come apart). These guys are TOP NOTCH. I wish we could use them for EVERY move!!!read more

Our experience with Mountain Moving for our local move was great! They even lent us boxes. I had never seen that before. They were punctual. Gave us the "Red Carpet" treatment (they roll a neoprene "carpet" on all the high traffic areas and cover all the... stairs with an adhesive plastic sheet). We have many sensitive antiques and all the workers were very skilled and careful. I didn't feel apprehensive for a moment. We had absolutely no damage or losses. It was a perfect move and I would highly recommend them. We have done 6 moves with the military and this one is at the top. This time was on our own dime and it was a great value with total peace of mind. Our team was Jesus, Max, Sean, Issac, and T. The appraisal was done by Doug and he even wore shoe covers to walk through the house.read more

We hired Mountain Moving to move a grand piano that we had purchased. They were professional every step of the way, from the first phone call to the finished delivery. It took about 3 hours for them to move the piano (taking it apart, loading it,... transporting it, unloading it, and setting it back up). They handled the piano with extreme care and put it exactly where we asked. I would most definitely hire them again and have already recommended them to others.read more

I had Mountain Moving & Storage move my apartment last fall and I couldn't be more pleased with my experience. I only moved a few blocks, but these guys pulled out all the stops regardless that they could have carried my furniture just down the street by... hand.All of my belongings were boxed up neatly and orderly, delivered to the right space and nothing was damaged. They took better care of my belongings that I have in prior moves. I also had them help when I delivered a large piece of furniture across town to my apartment at a later date. All precautions were taken and my furniture is in great condition thanks to them. Did I mention that my apartments both were upstairs in vintage (1918 and 1957) buildings with no elevator and VERY narrow stairwells?The entire staff who helped, from the front end and sales staff to the guys who moved me, all were knowledgeable and professional. I would (and have) recommended Mountain Moving & Storage to anyone who needs moving. Whether it's down the block or across the country. If I would change anything from my experience, I wouldn't have bothered personally packing the portion of the job that I did and had left it all to these guys. While I was unpacking, you could tell who was the professional and who had packed themself! 🙂read more

Their quote beat everyone else by at least $750. They brought boxes ahead of time. They arrived on moving day on time. Nothing was broken on moving day (we've since unpacked). Everything was completed on time. The bill was virtually the same as the... quote. Service was professional and friendly. COULDN'T BE HAPPIER!read more
