I am very happy with the services provided. Distinctive movers helped me move locally from Raleigh to Cary. I had a two bedroom apartment and moved into a 3 bedroom apartment on the 3rd floor. I was surprised by how efficient and fast the guys worked. Bottom line, I paid a fair price, and my items were delivered with no damages. I recommend their services to anyone looking for a great mover.

Distinctive Movers helped me and my family with the move to Florida. I am very happy with the service and the price. Only moving company who offered a complete and detailed quote with the answers to all of my questions. I would definitely recommend them if you are looking to move to a different state.

I moved my five bedroom house. The customer service was wonderful. I don’t have much experience with moving, so was expecting it to be a stressful event my friends had described it to be. 🙂 but thanks to these guys the whole process has gone pretty smoothly. Good communication is the key. I’m definitely happy with the result.

Distinctive Movers are punctual, careful and friendly. We had to move a three-bedroom home out-of-state. They packed every piece of the furniture carefully to avoid any damages. The complete process from moving out to moving in took less than a week. Quick delivery, affordable cost. Thank you!

We had 2 movers who got the job done quickly. We chose a full-packing service. They packed up vases, glasses, and other kitchen items. Every piece was handled carefully and there were no damages to any of the items. Took apart all the furniture and put it back together quickly and correctly. I would highly recommend.
