Awful experience! We hired Greater Austin Moving to move us from Austin to Denton. Not only were they careless as they loaded the truck, they showed up drunk and smelling like beer when they arrived in Denton. All of this might have been ok, until they broke two expensive pieces of furniture. Scott stated he would reimburse for damages for a marble dresser that they dropped and broke into two pieces. However he never returned our call and avoided our phone calls for months. We were never reimbursed. I'm still amazed at how unprofessionally this was handled and what a conman the owner is!

WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE!! We used Greater Austin Moving & Storage for an out of town move and I have nothing but great things to say about this company. Not only was the owner a delight to deal with, but the movers were timely, courteous, HARD WORKING and extremely careful with our belongings. I can’t say enough about Pete and the young men who did our move. They turned an otherwise stressful event into a completely stress free experience and they delivered on everything they promised. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS COMPANY for any kind of moving need!

Great job on my move last week. Scott and his crew did a wonderful job in moving my belongings. I have never used an Austin mover before and I'm glad I went with Greater Austin Moving. Only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because the driver Pete was on his phone a little too much. Other than that Awesome!

We just moved into our new home a few days ago and have to rave about what an amazing job Greater Austin Moving did. Pete, Damian and Oscar were so friendly, they actually made moving a pleasure rather than a chore! They were exceptionally punctual, careful with our belongings (not a single bump, ding, or scratch in the lot!), and efficient at getting the job done. I would highly recommend Greater Austin Moving to anyone and everyone!

Thank you so much for the wonderful move. Moved two weeks ago and Pete, Damian and Charles did a wonderful job. I will gladly recommend Greater Austin Moving to all my friends and hopefully won't be moving any time soon. These guys are Austin's Best Moving Company!
Thank you Scott!

So happy with these guys. Used them last week and had to reschedule 3 times do to closing issues. Never a problem, Scott was always very helpful. Move day the guys kept in contact to let me know how the day was going as I was an afternoon move. (I would recommend taking the morning time slot if possible) We did get a late start but the guys stayed until the job was done and even though it was late in the day they made sure all the little details were looked over.
Thanks guys, will gladly use again, just not too soon.

I am so happy I went with this company. We had to reschedule several times with little problem. Scott was able to fit us in with a last minute change to our move date so that was helpful. Patrick and his crew did an amazing job and it wasn't easy. We had contractors still working on our house so we weren't quite ready to for our stuff to be moved but we really wanted to get into the house. This was not a problem for Greater Austin Moving. I would gladly recommend this company to my friends and family they are a quality Austin mover.
I used this moving company a few years ago since it came up as one of citysearch's Best of Austin. I had a HORRIBLE experience. The movers that showed up were extremely sketchy and rude, they demanded I write them an additional check before they would move my belongings. The worse part was they left used BEER CANS and TRASH in my garage of the apartment I moved out of!!!!! They scratched up the front of my expensive front loader wash machine! When I complained to, Scott Bankston, the OWNER he acknowledged my complaint (and even said he had previous complaints about the CONTRACTED movers he sent!!!) and offered to refund me $200. I NEVER to this day have received the refund. First, he said he had sent a check then said he refunded the credit card I used. Despite multiple attempts to collect I just let it go. I would recommend staying AWAY from this moving company. My experience was AWFUL and I'm still owed $200. I've been meaning to post this for a long time and am going to try to get my experience out there on as many websites as possible.
I would advise moving your own flat screen TV if you go with this company. I did get a great deal on the move I did with them in November and after taking a 35% pay cut over the last two years and needing to move to a less expensive place this deal could not have come at a better time for me. The movers were very friendly and fast. My estimated 5 hour move only took 3 hours to complete. Had it not been for the 700.00 flat screen TV that was damaged in my move that they will take no responsibility for I would recommend them. I've had the TV a little over one year and this was the first time it had ever been moved. It had been on the same TV stand since the day I brought it home and I've never had any issues with it. After the movers left my new place the cable guy showed up to install my cable within 2 hours and the TV would not turn on. I never received a call back from the voice mail I left that day but I did email back a forth a couple of times with the owner over the issue. Here is the last response that I received from him regarding the issue ""We normally don't insure the inner workings of TV's so unless there is a way to tell if we damaged the TV I'm not sure how to handle your claim as there is no way to tell if we did anything to the inside of the TV. We have been in business since 2001 and have only had one TV claim and that was due to significant trauma to the TV."" So unless your TV is visibly damaged on the exterior they will not take any responsibility. The inner workings of an LCD TV can be easily damaged if laid down flat but I was so busy running around doing last minute things during the move I did not witness how they packed it. I'm sure that no one meant to damage my TV, but damage has been done and their lack of responsibility is not only disappointing but it's insulting because it makes me feel like they are trying to imply that I am a liar. My advice, turn the TV on and make them acknowledge it works before moving and don't let them leave the new place until you have verified it still works after your move, or just move your own TV. Going forward that is what I will do! Other than my TV issue (that I cannot afford to replace) the move was great. Wasn't sure what to give as a rating, had it not been for the TV issue I would have given it 5 starts.

I recently used Greater Austin Moving, and I've never had such a quick, stress free move! Patrick and his team arrived early and immediately got to work, wrapping all of my upholstered furniture with blankets and moving everything with care. They followed me directly over to my new home and quickly began unloading, laying out padded blankets in the house as to not scratch the floors and always asking where each item should be placed as they came thru the door. Patrick was very personable and easy to work with. And I was quick to call Scott, the owner, to compliment his team. All in all, a wonderful moving service that I will definitely be using again in the future!
Moved before the Holiday and used this company based on a friends recommendation. Patrick and his crew did an amazing job. They did have a few scratches but nothing major. What i liked about Greater Austin Moving was the communication, from the time I booked and up to the day of the move I was fully informed on the entire move process. I would gladly use this company again and will recommend them to my friends and family.
Excellent service at a good price. Movers were punctual, efficient and made moving our office storage facility a breeze. Would definitely recommend Greater Austin Moving to anyone.
These guys are great, ask for Patrick and Joe. Needed to move last minute, price was right and service was great. Moving again in 6 months and I will be calling Greater Austin Moving.

I paid Scott about a thousand dollars to move my family from Austin to San Antonio. He couldn't make the new date we received from our builder and we had to hire someone else, so he said he'd give us a refund. Over three months later, still nothing but a bunch of excuses and unreturned phone calls. thanks. see ya in court dude.

Just wanted to thank Scott and his great movers for doing an awesome job for me. I had a fridge and a few pieces of furniture located at two homes that I needed moved to between three homes. His team showed up on time, immediately started loading and headed out to the next location to unload and load some more.
They were very professional and the only stress I felt was getting my family to stop adding pieces to shuffle between homes!!!!
Thanks again for an awesome job!!! I hope I do not have another situation like this or have to move anytime soon but I will definately be calling them again.

Wow, wow, wow, these guys are fantastic. Great price, great service, I've moved with big moving companies and these guys offer the same service. For a local Austin Moving company these guys did pretty well. The other reviews are right ask for Patrick's crew.

Best Mover Ever! Just moved yesterday and wow did these guys come through for me. Patrick and his crew were amazing, scheduling a breeze (I had to change my date twice), Scott was so easy to deal with every time. I'm on the Greater Austin Moving bus!

Greater Austin Moving Company was absolutely amazing!
I had never hired a moving company before but after researching 10 others in the Austin area, we decided to go with them. We were so extremely pleased! Scott was able to work around our hectic busy schedule and the moving guys did such a good job, they even finished before the estimated time!
Very professional, fast, and careful with our things! Next time I move, they will be my first call!!!! Thanks guys!

This is my 4th time to call movers in Austin, but I had not worked with Greater Austin Moving before. I reached out for 4 quotes and GAM's price was the lowest...a little leery of going for the cheapest job, I spoke to Scott (GAM's owner) and was put at ease. To boot, the reviews all over the internet were positive so I scheduled the move.
With this move being for my mom, I wanted to be sure that she was taken care of and the 2 great guys who came to move her were amazing! The were quick, careful, cautious and so helpful! They adjusted and rearranged furniture, helped get the washer/dryer connected and were just plain polite and kind. My mom has never been happier with movers, nor have I. We will be GAM referrers for life! Thanks!
