Mayflower is a professional moving company that covers all the moving services you could ask for. It’s impressive how much Mayflower puts into its services, offering everything from simple packing and unpacking for local moves to major consultations that explain the in’s and out’s of moving to a new country. We like how much time and attention to detail Mayflower is willing to put into the various services offered. Here’s a closer look at what’s available from this brand:
Moves within the same city are considered local moves, and Mayflower has a network of movers available to accommodate this type of service. Local moves will be handled by one of Mayflower's partner agents. Local services generally cover 1- or 2-bedroom houses, studio apartments, storage units, and dorm rooms. These moves can include full or partial packing services, unpacking services, trash and debris removal, custom crating (for specialty or breakable items), house cleaning, storage, and more.
Mayflower is federally-licensed to move individuals and businesses across the country. Included in these moves are move planning, transportation, and support. You can also get additional services like having your car shipped, house cleaning for both your old and new locations, and storage services in case your new home is not ready in time for the move.
International moving services
Mayflower works across the globe, moving people throughout 150+ countries globally. All services available for long-distance moves apply to international moves, as well. Plus, you can get customs clearance management to get you across the borders efficiently. International moves include a moving consultation to help you understand everything that’s involved with an international move (documents required, which items can’t be shipped, understanding the culture, etc.).
Mayflower offers several levels of moving insurance. Full value moving protection is a guarantee that covered items will be repaired or replaced if they're damaged during the move. This is not insurance in that you don't have to prove the damage was done. Mayflower includes basic full value protection in every move, and you can opt to increase the amount of coverage you want as needed. There is also a minimum liability valuation option if you don't want the full value protection program.
We also like that Mayflower lets you customize the moving services you require. Some people just need a company to lug their stuff from one location to another. Other customers will want more assistance in various areas of the move. Mayflower includes all moving services and then lets you choose which ones you want. For example:
House cleaning (old and/or new location)
Full-service moves (includes packing, unpacking, storage, debris removal)
Packing and unpacking
Pricing for individual moves will vary based on several factors, including the weight of your belongings, which services you require, and of course, how far you are moving. Mayflower has a convenient online quote process that walks you through your belongings via a virtual tour. When the tour is over, a Mayflower rep can give you a price quote that includes whichever services you want to use, the actual price of the move, and any other fees incurred.
If you opt for the full-service move, there are three pricing options to choose from. Here’s a look at those:
$5,000 additional valuation protection
$25,000 additional valuation protection
$25,000 additional valuation protection
Convenience services included
Convenience services that you can choose from include:
Destination debris pickup
Service 2PC and network disassembly
PC and network setup
Home theater stand mount disassembly
Home theater stand mount setup
Home theater wall mount disassembly
And for the Plus 2 plan, you can also choose move-out cleaning services. Additionally, there are several waivers that you can opt into if you choose, including:
Identity theft protection
Increased destination wait time
Additional delay payment
Acts of God waiver
Mechanical malfunction waiver
Pairs and sets waiver
Some of these are included in the full-service moving plans.
Mayflower offers convenient online quotes. To get the ball rolling, get in touch with a Mayflower rep over the phone or online. They’ll walk you through a virtual tour and give you a complete price quote once you’ve given them the details, including moving dates, destination, etc. Alternatively, you can have an in-home estimate where a rep comes to your house.
If you agree to the price quote, you’ll be assigned a move coordinator. They’ll help you figure out exactly which moving services you need, answer any of your moving questions, and set things up. The coordinator will set up your dates, arranging any additional services like packing, storage, and cleaning, and coordinate any of the extra details you need.
Mayflower has a nationwide network of vans and moving services that work both nationally and internationally. For small local moves, Mayflower networks with local movers to get the job done more efficiently. The network consists of more than 250 home-based moving companies.
One thing we didn’t like was that Mayflower has limited customer support options. You can send them an email via the online contact form or call them on the phone. It would be nice to have some sort of live chat feature, as well.
Meredith of Atlanta, GA
“I recently moved from Atlanta to New York City and could not have been more pleased. Because I was on a budget, I packed my own boxes and they labeled them accordingly. Nothing was lost, stolen, or otherwise damaged. … I would definitely recommend them and use them again in the future.”
SHIFRA of Ocala, FL
“Moved my mother from Pa to Fl and from the beginning to the end I can't say enough how perfect everything was. … EVERYTHING was there and not one thing was broken, chipped or otherwise. I'd recommend them highly.”
Michele of Marlton, NJ
“The moving company was excellent! They arrived on time and each gentleman introduced himself. They were very careful with my furniture. They made sure that the items were placed exactly where I wanted them. The movers acted in a professional matter and were very polite. I would have no qualms about recommending them.”
Mayflower is a full-service moving company that offers every service imaginable. From packing and unpacking to cleaning, planning, and clearing customs for international moves, Mayflower really checks off all the boxes.
