About Bookstore Movers

Bookstore Movers was started in 2005 as a way for fellow employees of an independent used bookstore on Capitol Hill to earn some additional money so that one day they might collectively have enough to purchase the bookstore when the current owner retires.

We provide high-quality moving services by trustworthy and intelligent movers to the Washington, DC area. We do residential and commercial jobs, and are ready to help out with everything from packing, to pod loads/unloads, to studio apartment moves, to full service 4+ bedroom moves. We also now provide bin rental services.

We?ve done thousands of moves now and have thousands of very happy and usually pretty ecstatic customers (check out some of their testimonials here). We love what we do, and we are very good at it.

In fact, we have been awarded the title of ?Best DC Movers? by the Washington City Paper *six* years in a row now, for 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015. We were also featured in a piece by Washington Post Magazine, and in another by the local DC publication, Roll Call. Head to our website for an estimate; we'd love to be of service.

We specialize in quick, careful and efficient moving. From full service household moves to small studio moves and labor-only jobs, we'd be delighted to be of service. We can help with packing and consulting about particularly complex moves.


We work with Bookstore Bins and get lots of our supplies from New Haven. We use predominately trucks from GMC And International.

Questions and Answers

  • Do you offer any service after finishing the work?
We are available to help unpacking and we are reachable for repairs if damage occurs. We always follow-up with a feedback form after a move.
  • What questions should a customer ask before hiring you?
A customer should check reviews and ask how much experience the crews have and how things are handled if things happen to go wrong.
  • How many projects do you average in a year?
Approximately six to seven thousand per year. If varies quite a bit by season and demand is much higher in the spring and summer.
  • How can we save money hiring you?
It's very much about being prepared and well organized! Be well packed and move small items yourself. Be sure to have clear walking paths for the movers
  • What kind of questions do customers ask you?
Customers often want to get a price over the phone and unfortunately we really cannot do that as we have to have all the necessary info written down to properly calibrate the size of the truck and crew and to work up an accurate estimate.
  • What are you most proud of?
We did several complex, week long moves for embassies and museums and we are quite proud of those. But really it's most fulfilling when we can help someone who is having a tough time and make that stressful day just a little easier.
  • How did you get started?
We started in 2005 and officially became a company in 2009. We've grown quite a bit since then and we continue to grow. We're hiring now!
  • What types of jobs are the most common?
Small houses and one bedroom apartments; but we've moved all sorts of unusual items from phone booth, to time machines, to gigantic wind mobiles.
