1st Choice Movers


Read on for testimonials from some of our happy customers!

I recently worked with 1st Choice Movers and I absolutely LOVED their service and their team. They were efficient, expedient and extremely well organized. I could not believe how fast they moved my 4 bedroom house into the truck. I felt the price was fair for the amount of work that needed to be done. I recommended my brother use 1st Choice for his upcoming move and he did! He was happy as well. I also love the fact that this is a family-owned business and they treat you and your treasures like family.

Was very pleased with the level of customer service. I was left high and dry by another moving company and 1st Choice got me scheduled last minute, same-day. From there on, I received multiple calls with updates on their ETA which was very helpful. As far as the actual move went, it couldn’t have been smoother. When the crew showed up, I was given a very thorough and transparent rundown of the estimated services and costs. I was quoted 4-5 hrs and the guys got it done in 3 1/2, including travel time! My things were treated well and nothing was damaged. And to top it off, I received a card in the mail the next day from them thanking me for my business. I would definitely recommend them to anyone I know and I would like to thank them for making a stressful situation much easier.

We had to move out on extremely short notice and we were scrambling to find a moving company. Spoke with Gail and she could get a crew to help us the next day! This meant we did not have a lot of time to pack anything, so we agreed to a third person to help with the packing and moving. Moving day came and I got a phone call from the crew letting me know roughly when they would be arriving. About an hour before the crew arrived, Ron came to see what all needed to be packed and moved. He was very respectful and I appreciated the open communication.

When Salvador, David and Ross arrived they immediately got to work and worked their butts off to pack and move our three bedroom house with lots of very difficult furniture to move. They were very respectful and careful with our items and we actually had some fun while doing all this. They took their break after everything was loaded and met us at the storage unit right on time and unloaded the trailer in record time while managing to pack everything in the unit with awesome tetris skills!

There were absolutely no hidden fees, and we were charged exactly what we were told we would before the hourly rate and supplies and everything. Well worth the money we paid, and we will definitely be using this company again when it comes time to move out of the storage unit and into our next house! Very, very impressed with the work they did and will recommend them to anyone!

Great job guys!

I just wanted to thank you for all of your time, attention and patience through my move. You were fantastic!

The first estimate was to move me from Minneapolis to Detroit Lakes MN. Second estimate was to store my things for a few months and then finish the move to Detroit Lakes. I had to change my move in date with you three times and your patience and ability to accomodate me each time diffused a stressful situation.

Your movers were very polite, friendly and eager to help me anyway they could. I would also like to comment on your storage of my possessions, in short, perfect! Everything was in great shape and nothing was delivered broken. (Pretty amazing when you consider you loaded and unloaded my things four times!)

I feel your company went above and beyond with my “scattered” move and will refer you with confidence to my family and friends.

Thank you again, I appreciate all of you!

Today Ross and Salvadore showed up to move all of our stuff from storage to our new home, the guys were friendly and ready to get started. They started moving our items, covering the dressers, tables etc. with blankets and wrapping them in shrink wrap, i was so happy i called you, 1st choice. They were hard working guys who took pride in what they do. I couldn’t ask for a better company or better workers. We have a lot of stuff (2 storage units).

Ross and Salvadore moved quickly and damaged nothing, not even a bump on our walls when moving the heaviest stuff. I work in a family owned company that takes pride in customer service and we rely on customer referrals for business. I will refer you guys to everyone, your affordable and have you have great workers.

I just wanted to let you know that Sheila and I both thought that the gentlemen that moved us were awesome!

We couldn’t have had a better experience on a crazy moving/closing day in regards to both properties.

I know the lead gentleman’s name was Salvador and I think one of the others was Terry, but I forgot the third person. Anyways, just wanted to let you know that we appreciated the service and experience that we had with your company.

Jay & Sheila Thompson

This is my second time around with your company and am just as pleased and impressed as I was the first time (even wrote a testimonial the first time).

Everyone I have come in contact with in your company is beyond courteous, friendly, helpful and their effort always exceeds my expectation.

Salvador and Germaine (not sure of spelling) were my movers on May 17. They both worked so hard, never stood around, they were friendly, smiled all the time and just so pleasant. It was exceptionally helpful to me as I was in the middle of a very stressful situation.

These guys are gold and you are very fortunate to have such dedicated workers.

Keep up the good, consistent work. I’ve already referred you to several people and I have a friend that’s moving this fall that will be calling you.

Thank you,

On April 29th my son Ryan Corcoran hired 1st Choice Movers. I would like to take this time and note to compliment the two men that were sent to assist us with this move.

I only know their first names as Al and Jake. The men were on time arriving at the apartment complex, introduced themselves, and talked to our management to make sure they would use correct protocol. They looked through our apartment and immediately went to moving boxes. What impressed me most was the patience they displayed with my 4 year old granddaughter. She was very upset about moving and Al and Jake included her as much as they could. They explained to her that all her toys would be moved to the new apartment and let her see them being loaded into elevator.

Thank you. I am so pleased with Al and Jake and will recommend your moving company to others.

I wanted to let you know how pleased we were with our move this past Saturday. Salvadore, Germaine, and Daniel were fast, courteous and professional. All three are great guys and were a pleasure to work with. Since we’re downsizing, we color-coded our furniture as to where it was to go and how it was to load. They followed our instructions perfectly and the move went without incident. (They also “gift-wrapped” our furniture going into storage which was a pleasant surprise!) We would recommend 1st Choice to anyone considering a move.

Thank you,
Mark & Sherrie Krueger

I have moved many times and used many other moving companies thorughout the years, however, I must say that my choice to use 1st Choice Movers was the “BEST” choice I have ever made.

Everyone was very courteous and professional before, during and after my move. It was the fastest and most professional team of workers I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Nothing was damaged, they put everything where I requested and even went out of their way to hook-up my washer and dryer for me!!

I am here to tell you if you want the “BEST” you must select 1st Choice Movers…You will NOT regret making them your 1st Choice!!

Thank you,

Our experience with 1st Choice Movers was excellent from the moment I made the appointment!
I found your company on the internet via a Google search. I called several companies for pricing and information and because you both were so responsive, friendly and helpful over the phone, we chose your company over the 5 others.

I worked with both of you to get information and scheduling of the crew and you were both so very helpful. Ron even made some recommendations to us which we decided to take and are so glad we did!! And every time I spoke with Gail, she was so pleasant even though I know you guys were always very busy.

Our team of movers led by Pete, we all so friendly, hard working and just downright pleasant. I want to call out special attention to Pete and Salvadore. The entire crew worked hard, but these guys went above and beyond! They always had a smile on their face and was courteous to everyone in our family. At the end of the LONG day, they left and immediately returned because they remembered an outside door that did not get put back on the hinges/frame and they returned to put it back on!
All of our furnishings were handled carefully and absolutely nothing was broken or damaged during the move.
And in addition to all of this, your pricing was very competitive!

We would highly recommend your company to any one looking to move, including friends and family. My husband is a real estate agent and we will gladly recommend your company to his clients. We wish you all the best and when we move again (in a couple of years), we know who we are calling to help us!

Thank you,
Pam Dantzinger

Neither my husband nor I were looking forward to the morning these trucking movers would transport our belongings until we were introduced to Pete and Mark from 1st Choice Movers!!

These two men moved so synchronously—-sharing their pleasantries with each other and with both Jer and I as they moved without pause even though I pleaded that they ‘please take a break’.

Caring, hard working, non smoking, so very reasonably priced, you couldn’t ask for anything more.
The fact is: when Pete showed me the expenditures, I could not believe my watery, thankful eyes!

I’d hire them again in a non pausing minute!! The Greatest Guys Ever!!

Thank you,
Jean & Jer

For the wonderful card…You are the only moving company that 1) sends thank you notes 2) deliver boxes 3) have very hard working movers that look out for the customer. This last move…I expected almost double of what it actually cost. Your movers are awesome. IF I ever move again, I will definitely be in touch…I so appreciate you and I will advise my friends of your fantastic services. Your prices are right on, your friendliness, your thank you cards, your boxes delivered. Are way, way above the norm…trust me I know. I’ve moved way too many times…in fact in the past 6 years, I’ve moved 7 times. I say no more…but move is in my blood…so who knows.

Take care, thank you so much,

In the last three years I moved three times. The first two moves were by the same company and the second time they moved me was worse than the first move. Each time they damaged some of my furniture. The moves were very expensive and aggravating. This time I searched the internet for movers. Seven companies responded to my search including the company who moved me before. I recieved an email from 1st Choice Movers explaining their operation. I contacted 1st Choice Movers and we talked about my previous moving experience. I was told that those type of things would not happen with his crews.

1st Choice Movers arrived at my home, wrapped and protected our furnishings, then moved them to our new place in the very same neighborhood we had previously moved from. 1st Choice Movers moved he same furniture, the same distance in 1/3 the time. 1st Choice Movers did the move for 1/3 the price of the previous company and they did it without damaging any of my furnishings.

1st Choice Movers is an honest, organized and very professional moving service. I would highly recommend this company. I answered most of the seven responses from other companies, 1st Choice Movers was the only company that took the time to answer my questions about my concerns.

Thank You 1st Choice Movers,

My sister, Jane Norlander recently hired your firm to help us in the moving of our mother, Dottie Norlander to her new town home in Waconia. Jane had told me about how easy you made the move of the Stifel Nicolas offices in Wayzata. She said your staff was fast, courteous and professional and that the move seemed “to flow” and office procedures went uninterrupted. I was hoping we would enjoy the same efficiency with the move of our mom. WOW!!! Your staff was impressive!!! They not only were able to handle getting our mom’s belongings loaded and delivered in a timely fashion, but they were to nice to work with and talk to. I wish we would have mom even more organized. Salvador was able to keep a constant flow of clothes, furniture, etc. going, keeping Heber and Tony hopping. Heber had mom’s bed together in no time and moved onto the guest room bed without any direction, not to mention he could carry a lot and made it look easy. Tony just kept up the fun, talk and banter that makes an unloading job a lot easier and faster! You’ve got a great crew with those guys! They were true professionals. I will be recommending your company to future “movers” and am thrilled to see that customer satisfaction is number 1 for you. Thank you for the best moving experience I’ve ever had.

Sue Henning

I wish to express my thanks to 1st Choice Movers. This is the second time I used your company. January 2006 was the first time for an office move and yesterday to move my mother. Please notify Salvador, Herber and Tony they did an awesome job. I will continue to recommend your company.
