A very good performer with at least 5 good reviews and no significant bad reviews posted on this website. This company's website at www.marathonmoving.com says that it functions as a Stevens Worldwide agent for interstate moves. However, it self-hauls every shipment going 600 miles or less using its own trucks and drivers (desirable), and even goes up to 1500 miles on occasion. At least for local and relatively short-distance interstate moves, it has an excellent reputation in the industry. As of 3/16/11 it had an "A+" BBB rating with 3 complaints over the past 36 months - Marathon is located at 129 York Avenue in Randolph with phone numbers 781-963-0322, 617-325-1832, and 617-969-5152. See the "For local moves" section at the end of this post for additional comments on Marathon.
One of the MovingScam moderators toured the facility in 2008 and met the owner of the company, Paul Nelson, and a couple of the drivers. Paul's wife also works at the company, doing inside sales and billing. The moderator was very favorably impressed by all of the Marathon personnel and by the warehouse and trucks.
"rassha" gave Marathon a very good review for a 10-mile within-state move in 8/06. The company charged $168/hour for 3 workers and a truck:

"eoren1" (real name Eyal) posted that Marathon was "great" for his move in Jamaica Plain in 2006 and they also gave him a lower quote than Gentle Giant for a move to DC in 7/07--$3800 for 5700 pounds. He later posted that he used them to move to DC and the move was "awesome" with "impeccable service" and they even refunded $300 of his money:

"plonk" gave Marathon (and especially the driver, Mitsu) an excellent report for a move to DC in 10/07 including a plasma TV--they delivered the next day:
"krawek" (real name Joseph Krawek) praised Marathon highly in 10/08 for his move to FL--"my belongings arrived on time and with no damage"
