    Not impressed
    I don't know if we just got a bad group or what, but our packers were terrible. Nice and friendly, but missed several items and towards the end just plastic wrapped everything instead of boxing. It was such a bad job that when the moving company came the next day they had to repack multiple boxes as well as pack the items that were missed. On the flip side, if you need a moving company I highly recommend Bailey's, they were phenomenal. Byron and his team were top knotch!

    Coffey Brothers Movers are A+
    I have moved 4 times in the last 6 years. I have never encountered such a professional moving company. From scheduling the moving day until the actual moving it was a totally different experience. Coffey Brothers are the best. Thank you all for the wonderful service.

    First Time Movers
    We were totally pleased with our moving experience. We haven't moved in 20+ years and this was the first time we have used professional movers. The moving crew were on time, efficient and very courteous. There were no issues, nothing broken. The actual bill was within the range estimated. We highly recommend Coffey Bros. Moving.

    Coffey Brothers Nailed It!
    Jose and Brian were our movers. They were punctual, courteous, and efficient. Fragile items were carefully packed . No walls or other surfaces were damaged in the move. All items were transported and unpacked without any damage or incident. I would recommend Coffey Brothers for any apartment move in the Chicagoland area.

    Great work
    Jeffrey with his 2-member crew was amazing. They moved all our heavy furniture, and some was quite heavy, within 2.5 hours. They arrived on time and worked like a clock. One of our bed rails was damaged in the end, but taken all together, they performed quite well. I would definitely recommend Coffey Bros.

    Save your money and aggravation, do it yourself!
    This was the worst moving experience I had. I had fifteen items that needed to be moved was told 2 movers for 3-4 hours would be sufficient. Movers arrived one hour late and although I was promised 2 professional movers, I received one man and one teenager who were not professional movers. They bickered about how to move things. My dining room set (table, china cabinet, and buffet) took over an hour and a half to move out of the house. Six hours and $900 later along with a damaged floor and with things still not all moved, I gave up, told them to leave and called family and friends to help us move. Filed a claim with the company last week and was told it could take up to 120 days to reach a resolution.

    Quick, professional movers
    Movers were quick, professional, and handled all items with care. My only complaint is very minor. I wasn't notified of payment options until the move was over. They seemed to prefer cash, but I did not have enough, so I had to use a credit card. Because of that, the payment process took a little longer than it could have (about 10 minutes). Overall, a great experience.

    Fantastic experience! The movers completed our 1 bed apartment move in Chicago from the 39th floor to our rental moving van in 2.5 hours. They were hustling the whole time and efficiently packed our truck for the cross country drive to Charlotte. All items made it safe through the 12 hour drive.

    *****WARNING***** Do not be fooled by the good reviews. This company pays for the reviews and will reward at time to pay for a 5 star review. First of all the company tried to keep my deposit by saying I cancelled within a 2 day notice of the move which was a total lie. In fact Tina is the one that messed up and put me down for a schedule when I did not ask her to then I get a call making sure we are still on to move. The movers were almost 2 hours late with no call until 30 minutes before the movers actually arrived. The guys were very slow and used excessive amounts of tape on everything even with things that were already completely boxed up. They damaged a wall and the door at my old place. The response was that it's not a big deal accidents happen. dropping off the stuff at the new house and the boxes were put in the wrong places when they were clearly marked where to go. They danaged more walls in the new house and again stated that its small and ok to leave it as is.They unassembled the kitchen table and tv from its stand and did not put them back together stating that they had to get to the next job. In fact when all was off the truck except my tv they wanted me to pay the bill that had been marked up for excessive tape and other materials used and added time of 30 minutes to the bill which I argued and was told if I want my tv I have to pay it in full without question. This is a criminal company with a license...I called the company owner to complain and he laughed at me and argued that I was in the wrong. Bottom line,never use this company even to move 1 single box or it will haunt you forever.

    I have used Coffey Bros Moving many times in the past, and they're always my go-to when I need movers!! Not only are the prices VERY competitive, they are very fast, efficient, and I love that they respect my property and belongings like their own. It makes all the difference in a move when you know your stuff is safe and treated well!! Thank you, Coffey Bros, for all you have done for me. I look forward to connecting with you again for future moves! :)

    I hired Coffey Bros. Moving to move out of my 3rd floor apartment. I had the movers load a POD to be delivered to my new address at a later date. They sent two movers, the one mover was terrible! He was lazy, knowledgeable about how to move things and not strong at all! My mom and I helped move boxes to keep things moving along and I was lifting at least twice as much weight as this guy. He took several smoke breaks and I caught him hanging out by the POD on a few occasions. I was told the company was short staffed and this guy doesn't even work for Coffey Bros.

Furthermore, we offer all our customers a Professional Guarantee and back our services 100%! We did not receive a written complaint from this customer and cannot verify the statements.

    The workers were very slow, poorly packed my artwork and some of my furniture, and argued very loudly with each other. The good thing is the owner was very responsive, apologetic, sent extra guys to unload and gave me a reasonable amount of credit off of the job. They also had to make a second trip and the price was very fair.

    Thank you for the review Liz! We only employ full-time professionally trained and certified movers, and we back our services 100% with our Professional Guarantee. Moving is very labor intensive and stressful on everyone involved, and sometimes the movers may have a bad day just like anyone else. As you mentioned, we made things right in the end because customer satisfaction is our #1 priority. Thank you for your business!

    Coffey bros were very professional. Marcos, Luis and Abner took great care of our belongings. Marcos explained the whole process when they arrived very thoroughly. They took the extra effort to wrap our more fragile/ easily scratched items. Even though I had a lot of boxes and odd ends, they were super quick the job while being very careful with our things. I'd definitely hire them again. They were friendly as well. I felt like I was working with a very trustworthy team. Also during the estimation process Mike was very quick to respond and walk me through the moving process as this was my first time working with a moving company. Very competitive prices. Better than other companies I found online.

    Coffey Bros did a great job! They showed up on time (early in fact) and quickly loaded everything into the truck while still taking care to ensure everything was secure. They quickly unpacked at the final destination and set up all the furniture in a timely manner. The final cost was well worth it and I think very reasonable. Would recommend them to others.

    There appears to be a misunderstanding with this customer because we have no correspondence in setting up a move with her, but we are looking into it. We did reach out to her on Thumbtack in an attempt to prepare a quote for her move, but we did not hear back. In addition, the comments that she made do not reflect our company policy and procedure. We believe that she hired an illegal moving company on Thumbtack, and unfortunately ran into these issues. We are very sorry that anyone would have to go through the stress of movers cancelling, especially in a difficult time such as moving. We strongly urge customers to do your research and hire a licensed, insured and bonded moving company to avoid these issues.

    They first quoted me $80 an hour, two movers, two hours, and then came back the next day with an estimate of $100 an hour, three movers, plus $125 truck fee, plus four hours, for a total of $600-$800. This was for a move of the contents of a 10 x 10 storage locker in Evanston six blocks to a house, plus some items from Rogers Park. It was classic bait and switch. If you're going to charge those kinds of rates, be upfront and don't bid low - you are just wasting peoples' time.
    Kenneth C. Feb 18, 2016

    We sent Pat some numbers on Thumbtack based on basic details she provided, and also asked her to provide us with more information so that we could evaluate the factors of her move and send a proper estimate. She provided the additional information as requested and indicated that she had a full 2 bedroom move with a stop at storage to pick up a large 10x10 storage locker worth of furniture. We then sent a detailed estimate based on these factors. She reviewed the estimate and became angry and lashed out against us, as you can see in her review. She then hired illegal movers to complete her move, which is a huge liability putting your life and home at risk. We are an honest and reputable, licensed and insured moving company and our online reputation proves it. Estimating a move is not an easy task and requires patience and cooperation from the customer. As a reputable moving company, we know that it is very important to obtain all of the information before providing a detailed and accurate estimate. We kindly ask Pat to remove her 1 star review because it is damaging to our business. It is also unfair to judge a business without actually using their services.

    From the very start, these guys stood way out from the crowd: They were the only ones who answered all my questions at the quote stage. Their Moving Coordinator spent a fair amount of time on the phone with me going through the inventory of what needed to be moved, and patiently explained everything that I had a question about. I had to reschedule the move twice (so 3 different move dates). Every time, they were completely calm and accommodating. Then moving day arrived, and there they were -- 15 minutes early, and ready to go. The movers were incredibly quick and efficient -- a move that I expected to take 7 hours took 5-1/2 -- and still took great care with all the furniture and every single thing they moved. I could not be happier about how it went! Hire these guys -- you won't be disappointed!

    This was our first time using Coffey Bros. Moving. A few years back, we hired a different moving company, and they were unable to get our large sofa bed into our second bedroom, so we settled to put it in our living room. We finally bought a new couch and wanted to move the sofa bed into the room it was intended for. We called Coffey Bros on Saturday after closing hours expecting to leave a message, but lo and behold Travis answered our call! He was so polite and friendly, and helped us book our move within minutes. We shopped around and it was the best price in the city we found. He was able to get us someone to come out the NEXT day to move our sofa bed, media stand and a large desk. Brandon and Jeff showed up an hour early. They got the whole thing done in an hour and made it look easy. They wrapped our couch up real tight for protection and got it through all the slim doorways and up four flights of stairs with ease. They were both super friendly and helpful. Needless to say, the next time we move we will be sure to book through Coffey Bros.! They were able to do the job the other company couldn't!!!

    I would like to give all of the employees at Coffey Bros Moving a great big round of applause for making my move as stress free and easy as possible! I am a single mother with 3 kids and I work full time just to stay afloat. So finding honest, reliable and affordable movers was very important to me and my family. From the very beginning, the team at Coffey Bros was there to help and guide me in every direction. Ultimately I was so tied up with work and family affairs that I had no time and hired them for a full pack and move. And let me tell you, they orchestrated everything flawlessly! From setting up the move, to its execution, it was perfect. The movers were exceptional and took care of everything, they even offered to unpack and dispose of the trash. If you are looking for a mover, look no further, this company offers top of the line Customer Service and Moving Services! I will definitely refer all my friends, family, and clients to them.

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
First, one of our experienced and certified moving coordinator's will take all of your information and prepare an estimate based on the factors of your move. Then we go through the process of fine tuning your move based on your needs. Finally, our professionally trained movers will complete your move with efficiency and precision.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Having 10 years of experience as a professional mover puts this owner and CEO on the top of the game in the moving industry in Chicago. Not only does he know what customer's want, but he also knows what they need.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
As a licensed and insured moving company, we charge by the hour based on our tariff rates filed with the Illinois Commerce Commission. There is not such thing as flat rate moving. We also only charge for the supplies used on a move.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
Growing up playing sports in a team environment is a precursor to working in a very labor intense industry with other movers. Not only do we get to work out all day, but more importantly, we get to help people move, which is very rewarding.
What types of customers have you worked with?
We have worked with all types of customers including: people moving into newly purchased or rented homes; people renovating their homes and need help moving furniture around; people moving things into storage; people moving in or out of state who need help loading or unloading a truck or pod; and people purchasing furniture and need delivery assistance.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
Every year we assist college students in the Chicagoland area moving into and out of student housing.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Make sure that any mover you hire is fully licensed and insured by the Illinois Commerce Commission. Also, be sure to check their online reviews to be sure they can be trusted.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
If you are considering moving yourself, don't. Save your back and let the professionals do it!
