Square Cow Movers: In-Depth Breakdown

Value

📊 Our rating: 8/10

  • Binding quotes

  • No add-on fees

  • No upfront deposit

Show more

Square Cow Movers offers more value than most moving companies we’ve reviewed.

Based on customer reviews, Square Cow charges similar rates to other movers in the area. So, you should budget $900-2,500 for a local move, according to HomeAdvisor’s national average data. There aren’t special fees that we see with other companies, like elevator fees, large-item fees, weekend fees, and mileage fees.

Plus, Square Cow commits to its estimates. The price at the start of your move will be the price at the end of your move. That’s great, as changing prices is one of the most common complaints we see in moving reviews. (Note that this won’t apply if you opt for an hourly rate.)

Square Cow also doesn’t require any cash upfront. You pay at the end of your move. That means you don’t have to worry about fighting to get your deposit back if something goes wrong.

Most Square Cow third-party reviews say that customers had a great experience.

All Square Cow locations get at least 4.5 out of 5 stars on Googleand 4 stars or higher on Yelp.. We read through dozens of reviews. Customer after customer praised Square Cow Movers for its careful movers, fast service, and excellent communication.

Square Cow does get some negative reviews too, though. Luckily, we didn’t see anything too alarming. A small number of the negative Square Cow Movers Yelp reviews we read complained about damage to items or homes. This is a common complaint with any moving company. A few customers also complain that Square Cow movers work too slowly. But we saw way more reviewers mention their speed.

Square Cow has started franchising, which means locations may operate quite differently. So, Square Cow Movers Houston won’t necessarily offer the same experience as Square Cow Denver. Make sure you focus on reviews for your local franchise before you commit.
