I used Tightshift to assemble and move a sectional sofa.  The two Co-op workers were kind, professional, and helpful. They moved the pieces around difficult corners.  They were great to work with. The service was convenient. They were available on short notice as well. So I would definitely turn to them again and plan to for landscaping soon. The great thing about the landscaping option is that they work in tandem with other local businesses. I prefer to use compost for mulch instead of Lowes and they have a farmer connection that can do that. - Synta K


I couldn’t believe it! Such thorough work in a timely fashion. And the customer service was outstanding. I highly recommend Tightshift, they’ve truly earned their name! - Mrs. Beverly Williams, Retired US Marshall
