Hi Dean-

I just wanted to let you know how happy I and my resident were with your team this morning. They were courteous and professional. They worked consistently and were so pleasant to work with. I am so glad I found you to help with our need.


Good Morning,


Just wanted to let you know we are all settled in our new home and to say thanks for a great move.  I wanted to let you know that this was our 4th “professional” move and it was by far the best.  Your crew did a fantastic job packing and keeping our belongings safe (if I had known they were that good I could have saved some money on insurance … lol).  We suffered no lost or damaged items which was a first and the delivery was spot on.  Fred and his crew were great and did a fantastic job as well.

Best wishes for continued success, and again thanks for everything.

Dear Dean,

I am writing to thank you for the excellent service you and your movers provided to one of our clients. Your company was very accommodating and instrumental in successfully moving our client into her new apartment. This was not an easy feat as there were barriers in place, financial and otherwise, and our community mental health team greatly appreciates the care and patience you showed our client. In our field of work, it is seldom that we have the pleasure to collaborate with individuals and companies that show care and concern for our clients and selflessly give to them. It is refreshing, to say the least, to know there are generous and kind people willing to work with us for the benefit of our clients.

Our client is settled and very happy in her new home. This would not be possible if not for your exceptional service. Our team and our client would like to express our tremendous gratitude to your company. We will recommend and speak very highly of your company when those opportunities arise. Again, thank you very much for everything you have done for our client.

This email is long overdue.  I just wanted to thank you and your team for making my move go so smoothly. The movers were wonderful and went the extra mile.  Given that they actually had to make a stop not only at my house in New London but also the storage unit in Waterford and do the same at my place on the Cape and my unit there says a lot. Throughout it all, they were prompt, professional and courteous.  I just wanted you to know that they did your company proud.  Again many thanks. Hope you and your family enjoy the rest of the summer!

Best to you,

Dear Dean,

I just wanted to let you know that the team you sent was superb. Brian, Steve and Dan were all so well mannered, accommodating, skilled, careful and did a beautiful job. I was nervous in the beginning about the move, but they made me feel comfortable at every step. Thank you SO much for all your help in your quick responses to emails and calls no matter what hour. I am now telling everyone here on Fishers that if they have to do a move to call you.

With much appreciation,

Dear Dean,
I just wanted to say “thank you” for all the services that you and your team provided to us in our recent move to New York.  Your team was outstanding – they were professional, hard-working, and efficient – and were genuinely friendly.  We particularly appreciated Brenda and Emil.  They both were absolutely outstanding in terms of communication, organization, and making us feel “at ease” with the whole process.  Also, I wanted to thank you for your “not to exceed” estimates.  That really gave me confidence that there weren’t going to be any big unexpected expenses and helped us to budget for the move.
You’ve built a great company – and I was really impressed talking to some of your workers.  I was especially impressed at how long some of them have worked for you – that says good things both about you and about the atmosphere you’ve created there.  I didn’t imagine when we met you and Victoria a few years ago that I would ever need to use your company’s services – (and I still wish we didn’t have to!) but I am glad we got to know your family a bit.  I hope that your summer is going well!


Take care,

Hi Dean,
wanted to let you know how pleased I am with how smoothly the move went. Dave & Lane are a delight as well as professional.
Not one item was damaged in any way. They were very accommodating & a pleasure to work with. I would refer/recommend your company should anyone have a moving issue and in need of a professional job. Thank you, Diana — May 11 2017
Hi Dean,
Everything went well Wed. The crew was great and very accommodating. I am so glad I stayed with Bekins.  Thanks so much,   Nancy McCarthy Green  — April 10, 2017

I just had a great experience with your company recently. Throughout a 20-year military career my family and I have moved often, and we’ve had many different experiences with moving companies. Our recent experience with Barnes Moving & Storage was the best. Your guys were simply the most conscientious movers we’ve ever had in our home. I will not hesitate to recommend your business to anyone who asks me about a good moving company. Thank you and your team for a job well done. — David Santos  2-15-2017


Very Professional Crew

Hi Dean, I wanted to take a minute to email you to thank you for having such a great bunch of guys working for you. They are exemplary, always willing to go the extra mile, fun, and polite and very professional! Your team, you included, had made a very stressful time so much easier!! Thanks to all. – Mollie Burton September 2016


Wonderful Crew


Hello Dean, I wanted to let you know how wonderful your crew was during our move. Jamie, Lane & Emile were just the most hard working, courteous and efficient group of men. Our move was uneventful and I have not found any damage thus far. You have three great employees and I wanted to recognize them. I would definitely recommend them as the crew of choice to anyone I know in CT who is moving! Best regards and thank you for a great move! – Nilda Tavares – Cigna Healthcare       

Dear Dean and Team: A very big thank you is due to Ackee, Nicky, and Kevin, who made my move from Gales Ferry to Farmington, CT, a success. This is my third move with Barnes Moving and Storage, and note of thanks is a testament to why. Once again, the Barnes Moving Team assigned to my job took great care of all of my household furnishings, breakables… and box upon box of heavy books! The heat of the day did not impede their enthusiastic customer service in any way… even when it was time to move the granite bench and bird bath!! “We’ll work with you to make it happen” was their uniform response. They never stopped, and were in lock-step with each other every step of the way. They epitomize the meaning of Teamwork. All along the way, they were professional, personable – and fun. They made what was a very difficult move for me, in many ways, better than I thought it could possibly be. What really made me smile were the quiet personal touches they made when positioning my furniture. The granite pieces were artfully positioned in perfect spots in the yard, …a steamer trunk added the end of a guest room bed, “because that’s where it feels it should be,”.. to a terra cotta garden pot placed gently in front of the main entrance – a perfect, welcoming touch at the end of a very long day. As they drove off waving and calling out good wishes, I felt like I was truly at home. – Thank you, everyone! Sincerely, Jenn Carroll

We just wanted to let you know what a wonderful job your moving team did. Our move from Conn. to N.C. went off without a hitch! Not one missing item, nothing broken, everything was packed with care. Please thank all of your team for us!

Dear Dean, I wanted to thank you for the wonderful experience we had with your company during our recent move from Gales Ferry to Mystic. Your staff was friendly, helpful and very professional. They provided excellent service and we will not hesitate to call you again once we buy our dream home. Warmest Regards.
