Editorial review from Citysearch 11/12/2014

I am a single mom with two young daughters. The place we were living became unsafe for my children and I had to pack up and move in three days. I called Lighthouse Moving and talked to John Hathaway, the owner. I explained my situation and he was very understanding and he was able to fit my move in for the next day. His rates are by far the best in the Twin Cities and John and his workers are very personable and professional. They made a very stressful situation a lot easier. The other people still living in the house were rude and obnoxious to me, my children and the movers. The movers handled the situation very professionally and made us feel safe. My things were moved with care and respect. I will definitely call them again for my next move and recommend them to my friends and family. more

Lighthouse moving not only moved my home but my Art Studio. I am quite protective and particular how my paintings and materials are handled as well as packed. Matt and Rickee did a wonderful job, they carefully packed, transported and moved my belongings into my new home and studio. They did this in a timely and professional fashion.\r \r I have a friend moving next month and she has Lighthouse moving already set up for her move. \r \r Good job guys more

Editorial review from Citysearch 10/6/2014

I recently moved from minneapolis to st Paul and lighthouse moving was the most reasonably priced moving company I found. I called John Hathaway the owner of Lighthouse moving and he was very polite and proffesional answering every question I had. My move was on a saturday morning and his team of proffesional movers showed up right on time eager to help me load all of my belongings into the truck. They were really fast paced workers and also very friendly. I couldn't believe how fast they loaded all of my stuff! They were done in just under two hours saving me six truck loads at least if I were to do it myself. It was deffenately woth it. I'd recommend lighthouse moving to anyone who needs a proffesional moving job done quickly and carefully. John was awesome! He made sure everything was done right and ended up saving me some money too. Im deffenately going to use Lighthouse moving again when I move. Thank you so much John,Carrie and Tim! You made they whole moving experience a lot less streeful lol! There's a reason why you hold an A+ with Angie's list and that's because you guys are affordable and very proffesional! I'm glad I didn't base my decision to hire y'all off of ""one"" persons opinion. I always do my reaserch and If you don't believe me go to Angie's list and see for yourself! Thanks again John! more

One day late! Yes, you read that correctly. If you want your move to go smoothly DO NOT hire Lighthouse Moving. John the owner is old and confused. He cannot keep his crews and scheduled moves straight. I called a month early to schedule and I was given an arrival time of 2:00 Saturday. At 1:40 I was told by John the guys were leaving Hopkins and after their break they would be at our condo in an hour. At 3:00 I called him and he was definitely confused. He said the guys were unloading a high rise and it would be a few hours. High rise in Hopkins?? I reminded him of what he said at 1:40. He just kept rambling on and on, and I realized then he sent the movers to another appointment. He realized it too, but he offered NO APOLOGY, NO SYMPATHY, NOTHING. All he did was make excuses, talking over me, and blame the homeowners for lying about what they had to move. Desperate, because at this point no other movers were available, we decided to wait. I have never felt so mad and helpless. It was not what I needed considering moving is stressful enough. Around 6:00 John called and suggested we wait till Sunday morning, because the guys already had two moves for the day. What choice did we have?? What about the appointment I made over a month ago?? What if we had to be out that day?? Still NO APOLOGY, NO SYMPATHY, NOTHING. When the movers arrived they knew about yesterday?s situation and said John overbooks ALL THE TIME and wanted us to know it was not their fault. \r Don?t risk your move being delayed by one day. Hire a professional moving company that honors their appointment and believes in customer service. This is not my first time hiring movers, I know what to expect and this was the worse experience I have ever had. I don?t know how Lighthouse got an A+ rating through Angie?s list or any of the good reviews on reviews on Google and Yelp, but I am here to warn you to AVOID LIGHTHOUSE MOVING.\r more

Efficient and effective. 8/20/2012

Lighthouse moving did a small job for us, my sister was moving out of her house and a lot of things in the house weren't movable. What was moved was done professionally, they did not waste any time and they were very personable. more

I would not recommend them as movers. 7/23/2012

I had a lot of heavy furniture. I realized it wasn't going to be a really easy move, and that was described to John Hathaway when we discussed the possibility of hiring Lighthouse Moving. He said he would pass my message along to his workers. I think the overall attitude of the of the two movers that came was that they weren't really willing to work. Some pieces that were quite heavy needed to be moved down steps, and when they would get to the location, they would just plunk them down without asking me where to put them. I had to ask them to move things if they were not where I wanted, and there was not a lot of cooperation between us. It was kind of like pulling teeth; I guess that is how I'd describe it. The company as a whole might be great, but I would not work with these two individuals again. more

Absolutely perfect. 7/18/2012

I was looking for a good new mover, since I had been using the same one for years, and they had gotten bad reviews under their new management. I called Lighthouse Moving since they were a local St. Paul business, and I checked them out online. I was delighted with them. A couple young men came to help me with a massive amount of moving in the 100 degree heat. Everything came out how I wanted. I was on a budget, and I didn't want them to take too long, so they kept it under six hours. They were also amenable to directions, and delivered my color coded boxes to three drop-off locations. Organization is important, and you can't expect them to do their best without it, so I found it best to talk to them and give directions. They were very nice people. Nothing was damaged either. They shrink-wrapped my loose things and covered my drawers. My only reservation, and this applies to any mover at all, is that if you're disorganized, you can't expect them to know what to do with your stuff. Even with a minimum amount of organization, they will move your stuff in a lot less time. I have done many moves, and so I know those that if you're a reasonably organized customer, they will be excellent. The young men from Lighthouse Moving were experienced, strong, and had all the good tools. I was very happy with them and would use their service again. They were completely patient with the fact that I needed to put down more labels after they arrived, and their rates are competitive too. They did the job with two guys, so I was impressed. John assured me they would be capable, and it worked out absolutely perfectly. more

Complex Residential Move 4/24/2012

When I first called John the owner he was busy so he said he'd have his bookkeeper call us back. Which she did within 15 minutes, always a good sign. After which I proceeded to ask a lot of questions! She was very patient and thorough, and gave us some past customers to call - something which we had requested. We checked out their reference, and checked out their Better Business Bureau rating which was excellent, then called John, back. He was just about as patient as his bookkeeper! We ended up having them do our move. Everything went smoothly except for one table leg that was already cracked and it broke the rest of the way. Lighthouse Moving took the small table and leg, and repaired them perfectly for us, even though we had told them they didn't have to We had a total of 2 1/2 truck loads of furniture and belongings moved for us. Their rates were very good, and they were fair in their tabulation of the bill - they didn't try any tricks, which I have seen before. The three man crew did an exceptional and professional job!

Only the BEST! 3/20/2012

I have used Lighthouse Moving several times and never been disappointed by their work! I set up moves with John over the phone and have found his estimates of cost to relyable as long as I remember to detail what needs to be moved. His guys are great, easy to get along with and prepared for ""extras"" that I might overlook. I am very cost concious and John does a great job of keeping costs down and still delivering a quality move. more

Would not use again. 3/4/2012

I would not use this company again, and would not recommend it. more

Good Workers Good Job 2/12/2012

Starting with the first phone call, the owner John took his time with both of us. We both had questions about his company and about the move. We didn't make a decision right away, but called back in a few days deciding to go with the smaller more personal moving company. The move itself went almost perfectly. One dresser did get scratched, but they came and picked it up, and had it fixed and brought back to us within one week. We had three workers and two full truck loads. We also had a lot of very heavy furniture. Two of John's workers we're quite large and were able to almost easily handle the heavy furniture! I have already recommended them to two other people, both with equally good results. more

HORRIBLE Moving Company 11/4/2011

We had a horrible experience with Lighthouse Moving. They quoted us 4 hours and it took them over 9 hours to move our small house when we had all of the boxes packed and on the main level ready for them to bring out the door. The movers were slow, the customer service was poor and we were unfortunately very disappointed with them. more

These guys did a fine job for us! 4/16/2011

I've had some pretty horrific experiences with some of the larger moving companies, so decided to go with a smaller more personal moving company. John Hathaway the owner was very helpful in figuring out the complicated aspects of our move. We we're moving two apartments into one, and there was quite a bit of logistics involved: Some stuff had to go to storage, some to our In Laws, and the rest to the new house. more
