Best Movers EVER!!! We had Huey and Sean...so polite and treated our stuff like it was their own. Loved them!!! I had previous problems with Two Men and a Truck, who had damaged several pieces of our Brand New living room set...including new leather sofas(UGH!!!). Not happy with those guys...expressed my concerns w/ Unicorn and I had NOTHING damaged. Everything was moved wrapped in thick moving blankets and packed perfectly. I wish I had used them for my previous move. I don't plan on moving any time soon, but if I do I will only use Unicorn in the future. I would recommend them to anyone! Worth every penny :)

From my first phone call, through multiple changes, and about 5 days Unicorn was never anything less than professional, courteous, pleasant, understanding, helpful, etc. That was the office.
The movers that they assigned to my job were out of this world (if only you could have seen the 4500'+ house). They were always on time, they worked their tails off. I don't think they knew what a break was. The were professional, and courteous, and jumped at whatever we requested. We could not have been happier with our entire experience.

We sheduled a move with Unicorn Moving 2 weeks in advance, pending the sale of our home.
The schedler was nice and couterius, saying if we needed to move the date or time just to let her know. We did not have to change our date but felt assured that they would accomdate us.
Two moves showed up with a large truck, on time. They were friendly and profeshinal. They got straight to work. We had hired them for two hours and they used every minte. All boxes were put in the exact locations they were labled.
In additioanl to the normal boxes and funiture, they moved out elipticla, waher, and dryer up the stairs without a single chip or wall scratch. They did a wonderful Job.
We will definatly call Unicorn moving when we need to move again.

From the time I made the call to get quotes until the time of the move, our experience with Unicorn was fantastic. Huey & Shaun who moved up were GREAT!. They got there, discussed the plan and within 2 hours we were at our new destination. This was with a 3 br 2 bath 1875 sq foot house. Nothing was damaged, they put everything as I directed and all with a smile. Huey and Shaun were the best movers we've ever worked with. We referred a friend who had just lost her husband and she was thrilled as well. Will definitely use them again and recommend them to anyone who is moving. Thanks Huey & Shaun and all the staff.

First, the movers were 2 1/2 hours late. Then, of course, they were in a hurry so my move didn't go so well. Nice guys but I had lots of damages, both to the household goods and to the house. Boxes were marked but came off the truck mixed up so they were placed in the room denoted by the top box. Never heard back from Unicorn on my claim. I've moved 8 times and this isn't the worst but it's a close second to being the worst.

We have used Unicorn twice since 2009 to move a relative. Both moves have been out of the Austin area. We have had great service both times. The last move was in early October. The movers left Austin and were in Dallas ready to pack up right on time. All went quickly and efficiently with loading even though we had a few extra boxes to add to the list. They got the new quote for us over the phone. Since we were moving items to a storage facility that had time restrictions we were concerned about travel time but there was no delay on the return trip and they quickly got everything stored for us. They even advised the best way to stack things to maximize the storage space
The movers while being very professional also put you at ease during the move. Great guys.
We have another move in the near future and will certainly call Unicorn again.

After talking with a few moving companies and reading reviews I went with unicorn based off the number of great reviews they received.
I have never hired movers before, but with my current job, do not have time to spend an entire weekend moving. I was concerned about costs so I set up the per item move so I could plan ahead.
I called and spoke with Scott who was very friendly and professional. We set up everything and it was all planned out initially. The only reason I did not give a 5-star rating was because I called later that week and scheduled an additional stop with their receptionist. When I called the day before to confirm, she had not relayed the info about the second stop to Scott who was unaware of this change. I then had to re-set up everything for the additional stop, not an issue, just a minor annoyance. Scott was more than friendly during this process too.
Moving day was great! The gentlemen who helped me move (Driver 750, Mover 860 - I forgot their names) were really great. They were very friendly and made me feel like my items were in good hands. I enjoyed working with them and actually wanted to buy them a beer afterwards. I tried to assist them at points (I can't stand to do nothing while others are working) and they would not let me even though I offered. Ultimately I appreciate that.
They did a great job. They moved a piano, a few antiques, and furniture for me and did a great job, everything was in good condition and they really worked fast.
Give these guys a try, they really did a great job for me.

The movers were on time to start, they finished our move in record time, and they took pains to make sure everything was right where we wanted it. The price was just what I was quoted - and it was a low price too!
They came recommended highly to me - and I'll recommend them highly to you.

I just wanted to let everyone know that I had a great experience with Unicorn Moving. They were prompt, courteous, and professional. They showed up when they were supposed to and took special care in move my families furniture. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a good moving company. I referred Unicorn to my older brother and he had the same experience as me. Great job and a good price.

My Unicorn movers were on time, courteous, and gentle with my furniture. Even better, they had no problems dodging my rambunctious toddlers who kept trying to get in the way. All that, and they were very competitively priced as well! I would recommend them to anyone.

I had sold my home and bought another and had scheduled Unicorn to arrive the day after the closing. As luck would have it, the closing was rescheduled for the day Unicorn was to arrive! I was so unsure as to how the day would progress. The guys arrived on time and quickly loaded the van, too quickly in fact. I was worried I would have to pay 'waiting' charges. As it turned out, they took their lunch break and I went to close, and they were at the new house when I arrived with the keys. They unloaded quickly,placing furniture where I requested, putting boxes in different rooms. Nothing was damaged. The guys were very friendly, helpful, and professional, I would definately use them again (but I hope I don't move again for a long long time!)

It would be nice if the service from Unicorn was the same you get everywhere else. The movers showed up at the scheduled time. They confirmed exactly what needed moving. They worked efficiently and carefully. They caused no damage and no mess. They were polite and friendly the whole time. It was also obvious that these were experienced movers who knew all the tricks for getting large things through small spaces without damaging the property.

My wife and I have moved quite a few times (just in the past ten years we moved seven times).
Our most recent was with Unicorn Moving, and we can only say: This was the most professional move we have ever experienced! The crew was punctual, curteous, and took extremely good care of our furniture and other belongings (not even one scratch, anywhere!) What's more, they worked VERY fast. If we move again (we trying to "cut down" on moving), we will most DEFINITELY call Unicorn Moving -- the best way to cut down on moving stress.

I moved from Florida to Austin, and had a 24 foot truck to unload. Two guys came out from Unicorn and did an amazing job trying to fit all of the boxes and furniture into my small apartment. We had to laugh about how heavy everything was and also the amount of boxes I had for one person. They even stayed to help me hook up my washer & dryer, as well as move furniture around that they had originally just "put" somewhere. I will definitely use these movers again when I buy my house!!!

Our movers did a fantastic job! They arrived two hours early and moved everything down three grueling flights of stairs very quickly. I received about 6 price quotes for our move and Unicorn was priced considerably under all of the other quotes. We even bought boxes from them for half the price you would normally spend and we received most of our money back from the boxes because of a special they had going at the time. Everyone we spoke to was very helpful and pleasant! I will be calling them if we have to move again!

I have used Unicorn Movers twice and they have delivered two flawless moves. They have moved me up and down stairs, finessed my giant couch through some tight spots, and hauled tons of books for me - all without a problem. The movers themselves are very friendly and great at what they do.

I have used Unicorn Moving for several moves and highly recommend them to anyone needing a good moving company. Their reps are always on time, professional, and quick. Most importantly, I have never had anything damaged during a move.

I used Unicorn in February 09' for a move in central Austin. Their service was fantastic. I purchased my moving boxes from their headquarters off of I-35. Which was great because I then returned all the boxes for a refund. The two gentlemen who did the moving were very professional and courteous. They helped me move a few extra things and tried extra hard to help me fit an oversize couch down a narrow hallway. The pricing was excellent and overall I was very satisfied. I was dreading moving but they made it very easy. I would definitely recommend Unicorn!
