How It Helps You...

Time icon


Did you know it could take upwards of 6* hours to research a single moving company with the same rigor we apply at Great Guys Moving?

If you have the time to spare, we tip our hats to you! If not, keep reading to discover how Great Guys Moving's comprehensive rating system can simplify your decision-making process when choosing a moving company.

Licenses icon


Navigating the regulatory landscape of the moving industry can be daunting. It may surprise you to learn that some states do not require moving companies to hold a license, while others mandate multiple licenses. Confusing, right?

We've taken on the task of detailing the necessary licenses for moving companies to ensure you know what's required and can easily identify properly licensed movers.

Review Analysis icon

Review Analysis

Imagine trying to amass and pore over 500+ reviews from across the web for one company. Would it be possible to mentally catalog all that information and distill it into a useful conclusion?

We've streamlined this process by analyzing and summarizing reviews to provide you with clear, comprehensive reports, enabling quick and informed decisions.

Authenticity of Reviews icon

Authenticity of Reviews

Worse than the challenge of reviewing a company's complete history of customer feedback is the doubt cast by fake reviews. Were you aware that many companies unlawfully buy fake reviews to boost their ratings on major platforms?

Our system helps surface authentic reviews giving you access to the true reflection of a company's service quality.

*Our 6-hour estimate is based on thorough research. Consider this: a top-rated moving company in a major city typically has around 900 customer reviews, each about 98 words long. Given that the average American reads at a pace of 238 words per minute, just reading these reviews would take approximately 6 hours and 10 minutes. And that's before you even start to digest the information, check the moving company's licenses, or compare it with other local movers.

At Great Guys Moving, you can't buy your way to the top of our results. We provide objective and quantifiable rankings of the best moving companies.

How the Ranking Algorithm Works icon

How the Ranking Algorithm Works

It's a proprietary method we developed, so we can't share everything, but we can give you a peek.

Our team of data scientists tested, tweaked, and poured over millions of data points to get it right. We feed our training algorithms as much data as we possibly can from publicly available sources of data. This data can come from dozens of different sources including a company's website, 3rd-party websites, federal licensing data, and general business information. We compare each company against others in the moving industry and assign every company a specific score. We then use this score to determine how each company ranks against the others and distribute the scores across helpful adjectives to better understand the meaning behind the scoring system.

How Our Rating System Works

The algorithm is complex, but the output is simple. Our calculations provide a score that we use to rank each company in a specific city. We then translate the score into a helpful adjective rating system as follows:

Very Good

Note: companies with a score below "Good" can still appear on the site, but they will NOT have a listed adjective, or corresponding color.

How we review icon

How do we review a moving company?

Imagine the challenge of sifting through and reading every single review a moving company has ever received. Could you spot the fake reviews? Could you formulate a well-rounded analyses, or would you be left relying on a gut feeling?

  • 1. Quality

    Overall quality of the service provided on moving day.

  • 2. Punctuality
