Mighty Movers: In-depth Breakdown
Mighty Movers isn’t the cheapest mover out there, but it still offers more value than many companies because of what’s included in the price.
Mighty Movers is one of the rare companies that advertises its starting rates. For local moves, rates begin at $150 per hour for two movers, a truck, and moving tools (like a dolly and blankets). It also charges a $150 fee to cover gas and mileage.
That rate puts Mighty Movers on the high side for a local moving company (two movers typically cost between $50 and $100 on average, according to HomeAdvisor). That makes sense, though, given that Mighty Movers serves an area with a high cost of living. Plus, its hourly rate does include a truck and dolly, while some companies charge additional fees for those.
Also, Mighty Movers gives you ways to save money. Its Yelp page, for instance, offers a 15% discount on Mighty moving. The company also includes discounts on packing supplies when you buy one of its packages.
You can also save on Mighty Movers by paying for labor-only service instead of a full-service move, which is a nice option to have.
Customer Experience: 6/10
Mighty Movers earns excellent customer ratings on the whole, but the bad reviews are a bit of a concern.
Mighty Movers earns at least 4.5 out of 5 stars on Angi, Facebook, Google, and Yelp. The good Mighty Movers reviews say that its employees work hard and fast and offer very professional service. We also saw lots of praise for Mighty Mover’s pricing.
Some of the bad reviews come from people mixing up Mighty Movers with Mighty Moving and other unrelated companies. Some negative reviews are the same kinds of damage complaints all moving companies get.
But the complaints that concern us are about Mighty Movers’ owner. A handful of people report that he tries to get out of damage claims and even that he’s yelled at and threatened customers over their complaints.
Most of the bad reviews, though, still praise the actual movers. So chances are you’ll like the Mighty mover actually handling your things.
If the bad reviews about the owner scare you off, consider a company like Two Men and a Truck. We haven’t seen any reports of franchise owners harassing customers.
Based on our research, Mighty Movers complies with national and local industry standards.
It has the proper registration and active insurance, according to U.S. Department of Transportation mover records. Mighty Movers hasn’t had any crashes in the past two years. And no customers have filed formal complaints in the past four.
Mighty Movers is also registered as an approved motor carrier with the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles.
