Client Reviews


The guys were amazing, did a wonderful job, attentive, friendly and fast.


The guys were very good at their jobs. Fast and efficient. I couldn’t ask for a better moving experience.


I have used Golan’s 6 times with complete satisfaction each time.


Your guys are great. The foreman I had was actually the foreman I had when I originally moved into my place. The level of service was just as good as the first time.
The team was, in fact, early. They made the whole experience enjoyable.


Great experience. Smooth transition
