Read What Customers Say About Bellhop Movers in Raleigh, NC


This was our first time using a moving company and we only had them move a few heavy items- will definitely use them again in the future. Very quick and efficient- took care to not damage any of our belongings or walls. Super fast and professional workers! We had them move a couch to the second floor which didn’t fit and they had to move it down and do not complain at all. Very nice guys! (We moved locally in apex and the team lead was RaShad- great communication and was very punctual).

RTP embodies a collaborative ethos that brings together universities, businesses, and government agencies, fostering an environment ripe for technological advances and startup culture.

North Carolina is one of the nation’s fastest growing states. The state added an estimated 133,088 residents over the past 12 months, according to estimates from the U.S. Census Bureau.
