Arlington County is a county located in the state of Virginia. The land that is now Arlington was originally donated by the commonwealth of Virginia to the U.S. government to be part of the new federal capital district (Washington, D.C.). The United States Congress organized the area on February 27, 1801, as a subdivision of the District of Columbia and was named Alexandria County. Congress returned the land donated by Virginia in 1846, They did this due to issues involving Congressional representation of the area and the abolishment of slavery. The county’s name was changed the to Arlington in 1920 by the General Assembly of Virginia to avoid confusion with the City of Alexandria.
The Arlington County is situated in northern Virginia and is on the south bank of the Potomac River which is directly across from Washington, D.C. It is bordered by Fairfax County to the southwest, and the City of Alexandria to the southeast. Arlington has a land area of 26 square miles. Arlington is geographically the smallest self governing county in the United States and has no other towns in it’s borders. Given the unique characteristics of Arlington, for statistical purposes Arlington county is included as a municipality within the Washington Metro area by the United States Census Bureau. Arlington County had a population of 207,627 residents, as of the 2010 census report. If Arlington was incorporated it would be the 4th largest city in the state of Virginia.
Given it’s proximity to Washington, D.C., Arlington is headquarters to many different departments and agencies of the federal government of the U. S., some of which include the Pentagon, the Department of Defense, the United States Drug Enforcement Administration, the Defense Intelligence Agency and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). All of these federal agencies, U. S. government contractors, and service industries contribute to Arlington’s stable economy. Arlington is one of the highest income counties in the United States of America. Arlington is the location of many national memorials and museums, which include the Arlington National Cemetery (where many of our finest service men and women are buried), the Pentagon Memorial, the Marine Corps War Memorial, and the United States Air Force Memorial.
The area that is now present day Arlington County used to be part of Fairfax County in the Colony of Virginia. Land grants were given from the British monarch, which were awarded to prominent Englishmen in exchange for political favors. One of these grantees was Lord Thomas Fairfax, the sixth Lord Fairfax of Cameron. Both Fairfax County and the City of Fairfax were named after him. The name Arlington comes from the 1st Earl of Arlington, Henry Bennet whose name had been given to a plantation along the Potomac River. First Lady Martha Washington’s grandson George Washington Parke Custis, acquired this land in 1802. The land was eventually passed down to wife of General Robert E. Lee, Mary Anna Custis Lee. The property along the Potomac River later became known as Arlington National Cemetery during the American Civil War, and now lends its name to present day Arlington County.
The estate of Confederate General Robert E. Lee’s family at and around Arlington House was subjected to an appraisal of $26,810, and was given a tax of $92.07. Lee’s wife, Mary Anna Custis Lee, the owner of the property, however did not pay the tax in person. The result of which was the Federal government confiscated the property and turned it into a military cemetery.
Hoover Field was established In the 1930s on the present site of the Pentagon. In that decade, Colonial Heights, Buckingham, and other apartment communities were built and opened. When World War II was going on it brought a boom to the county, but one that could not be met by new construction because of the rationing imposed by the war effort.
Five al-Qaeda hijackers deliberately crashed American Airlines Flight 77 into The Pentagon on September 11, 2001, killing 125 Pentagon workers and all of the 64 passengers on board, as part of the September 11 attacks.

Thanks to Mashav Relocation for taking such good care of our things (and us)! The team packed up our house and safely delivered it *all* to its temporary storage unit home. Some other useful details:-It is almost impossible for me to make non-work related phone calls during normal business hours (back to back on Zoom, y’all) so I was able to coordinate the entire move via email with the helpful Mashav staff-We decided to spring for Mashav to also pack up our things due to the sort of last minute nature of our move — this was a first for me and well worth the investment -I got a text reminder to confirm the move (the future is now)-The team was patient and helpful when we needed to change storage units at the very last minute causing a short delay mid-moveNow, to settle into our temporary digs and discover our new neighborhood...#thisoldrowhouse

Worth every penny. They have great rates and are very very fast. Also they do not sacrifice quality over quantity. They over protected all of my furniture and asked multiple times if any had to go. I never felt like I was inconveniencing them or that they were not focused on protecting my stuff!

I first heard of Mashav Relocation when my friend and next-door-neighbor used them when she and her children moved to OH last year. I was so impressed with how knowledgeable the movers were with wrapping and moving their items, and so I knew that I will be calling when it was my time to move.And so about a year later we needed to move, I called my friend and asked for the details and phone number of the company that moved them. At first, I assumed that they do only out of state moves because they moved my friend to OH, so I wasn't sure if they can help with our move because we were moving locally. When I called Mashav, I was happy to hear that they also do local moves. I then scheduled with them an appointment for an in-home estimate. Mike showed up at my house for the in-home estimate appointment, and he was great with explaining everything to us. He also took notes of everything that we needed to move and what we needed the movers to help us with. We got the estimate and even thou it was a bit over our budget we were happy with it. The quote covered all our moving needs and more, so that worked for us!We moved two weeks ago, and I can say that choosing Mashav as our mover was the best decision we made. We had a smooth move, and the guys were great, polite and professional! They made sure to wrap everything and handle our belongings with care.I also want to thank Mike and the people in the office that helped with our move, they were a great help in planning the move and were always nice answering my questions, and I called many times with many questions ;) We are very pleased with the service that these guys provided for us. They are professional highly respected movers we give them their inventory list containing all of the items that we plan to move and they took it from there. They’re very nice so I have no problem recommending them to anyone who’s looking for movers were there it’s local or interstate I’m sure they’ll do a great job.

Great company! We had an excellent experience with them this past weekend. It was a last minute move, and Mashav were able to accommodate us with our move date and the price. Reasonable rates and extremely professional movers! I highly recommend! recommend this company to anyone looking to relocate locally or out of state. We moved two weeks ago, and I can say that choosing Mashav as our mover was the best decision we made. We had a smooth move, and the guys were great, polite and professional!

Mashav Relocation was great throughout my entire moving process! They were not only patient, but very flexible and understanding. They came out and did an estimate. The office called me a few times to follow up until I could schedule. The day of the move, I had a small crisis where my new home wasn't available... after the moving truck was all loaded up! The movers were very gracious and held my items overnight. They even came back early the next morning to unload once I was in my new home... even though it was a holiday! Highly recommend!

Since I called the first time, May was excellent at keeping me posted of details: budget, schedule, delivey of boxes etc. The day of moving, Roger and his crew were professional, efficient, and solved every challenge a move implies. I highly recomend Mashav Relocation, they are honest, serious and transparent in relation to cost. This was my first time using a moving company and I couldn’t have had a better group of guys. They were amazing!

There are a lot of scary moving stories on the web. I needed my shop tools moved and other stuff. They did a great job, on time, on budget! Would recommend their service. The movers arrived on time and ready to move. There was 3 men that arrived promptly, courteous, and professional. They made my moving experience a breeze. I was allotted 3 hours to move my 2 bedroom apartment to a townhouse. It only took 4 hours due to me not packing as thoroughly as I could have but they wrapped everything up and moved it anyway. They did not take a break during the entire 4 hours, I didn't have to complain about how they moved my belongings as they took every precaution to wrap and double wrap my bedding, sofas, tvs, etc. I have never had an moving experience like this and I highly recommend them to anyone. I will definitely use them again in any move I need. Great job!!

Professional movers who arrived on time and charged an acceptable amount. Will recommend to others.

I have read these reviews and I’m really starting to wonder if a fraudulent company used their name because I can not relate. Yes they were on time, yes they were fast, but they ultimately are not a good company. They only wrapped our new TV in padding and now there is a crack, that the owner is refusing to repair/replace. He cites his contract states they do not cover electrical malfunctions , but the crack has nothing to do with electrical function. Being military we move often and you better believe we get better peace of mind with the government, go figure. Mashav Relocation moved us this past weekend. They were on time, which was awesome, loaded up my stuff in a very timely manner, and unloaded everything efficiently, and they were all super nice guys!Making the reservation was very easy and my rep Dee and May were very helpful and answered all my questions. The dispatcher (I don't remember his name, sorry...) called to remind me that they were coming, I didn't need the reminder, but it was nice to know that they were on top of it. It was refreshing to work with people who understood what the job required, and then did what was required.While it was a little spendy, I felt that my needs were accommodated and then some, and it was worth every penny to have three guys who were enthusiastic and really nice and fast! I would definitely use this company again.

I called yesterday to see if they were able to move me tomorrow and I knew it was short notice but I was hoping they would say yes. The best decision I could've made giving them a call. the team were prompt,handled all of stuff with care, AND finished before the 3 hour timeframe we discussed. I was beyond impressed. I HIGHLY recommend these guys to anyone in need of professional movers.
14:54 27 Jul 18
Amazing service! May was extremely responsive in scheduling, providing an estimate and keeping us updated with the delivery. The Movers Roger and his team did a great job! They packed and moved all the stuff with extreme care and patience. They were good at disassembling and re-assembling at the new place as well.Their moving truck was clean and equipped with all the moving supplies and equipment needed.I would recommend these guys for your next move!

I’m so grateful for this moving company! The movers were phenomenal I could not of asked for a better service with better people. Moved locally within the DC area a few times. The entire move was smooth, the movers took care of all our furniture including putting everything back together. What a wonderful experience! Thank you Mashav relocation. We had to move six bedroom house filled with furniture, appliances, beds, heavy furniture, you name it. Four guys from Mashav showed up at 7 am and began working... and they did not quit until 10 pm doing an amazing job for over 15 hours. They only stopped for 10 min lunch, otherwise it was a non-stop super hard work. These guys' work ethic will put anyone to shame. We could not be more pleased with their performance. Nothing was damaged or scratched and some large pieces of furniture miraculously found their way to the third floor of our new home. Amazing job. I have seriously underestimated how much stuff there is in my house and yet they did not say one word to me that they had to work overtime and that they went home to their families five hours after scheduled time. I would higly recommend this moving company to anyone.

A fantastic job was done by these movers! Top-of-the-line relocation service in Maryland from a three-bedroom townhouse to a single-family home. The Packers and movers were very polite and extremely fast. The office representative had a comprehensive knowledge of all the details and gave us excellent guidance on what to expect and how to make this an affordable move with clear expectations. In my opinion, doing your own packing will save you a lot of money, but on the other hand, it does take a lot of time, so start packing as soon as possible. Polite, dedicated about the work, customer friendly and professional.I would like to refer Mashav Relocation. I give these guys 5 stars because they are polite, they work hard, and in the end they are true to what they promise. I needed to move my mom from Rockville MD to Washington DC. Dee was the representative who quoted a fair price and made sure everything went smoothly. The movers Roger, Carlos and Adrian all were polite and hard working. They wrapped all the furniture well and the move went great! The time quoted was a little under what it turned out to be, but my mom had a lot of stuff! Mike the dispatcher was very fair in his price and even offered a few discounts at the end I would use them again and recommend them to others. Altogether, this was the absolute best money that we have ever spent on a moving service. They showed up on time and moved the entire house in half a day. All of the movers were super-efficient, very careful, and skilled in moving our belongings. Not once did any of the guys complain about anything we asked them to do and we could tell that they really loved their job and were passionate about providing excellent service. Another great thing about them, the job was $400 cheaper than the quotes we received from the bigger companies. This move could not have gone any smoother; it was a completely stress-free and enjoyable experience. We have already referred Mashav relocation to 2 of our friends and will tell everybody we know about them. And don't let the affordable prices fool you, they are fully licensed, insured, and bonded. Thanks Mashav Relocation for an outstanding move!!!
The love family Badash

We used this company for our local moving recently. It was only a loading/unloading job per hour. They did not have to do anything especial since the furniture and other stuff were already packed. We offered them coffee and cupcakes in the morning and then another break at lunch time. My husband bought them the same meals we were having from a nearby restaurant. But the head of the crew was rude enough to tell my husband that he had to pay for the time they were in break and my husband could not say no, who could? At the end they charged us about one hour extra for the break they took. If you decide to use this company for your moving, do not worry about how tired they look or do not feel guilty if a delicious aroma has filled the house and they are hungry. They do not deserve to be treated nicely.

Fantastic moving company! Everyone from their office representative to the wonderful movers were helpful and kind. Great moving company they were very professional from the beginning. They came in and did a walkthrough for us gave us an estimate that beat out the other estimates by other moving companies by over a $500.00.The best part was there price did not go up from the time they gave us their quote to the time the delivered or things.Roger and Michael the movers were great they packed everything and had everything in the moving truck in about 3 hours and nothing was lost or broken, I'm talking about a full packing of every thing. All in all I was extremely pleased with there service and would definitely use them again for moving. I'm so glad I called and went with them. Very satisfied happy customer!!!Hila
