The service: Moving out of my 22nd floor condo building apartment in downtown (Streeterville) Chicago to the far north suburbs of Illinois (Winthrop Harbor), with the estimated distance of just under 60 miles, thanks to a little basic research using Google Maps. Details of the Moving (items, boxes, etc.): -8 fully-loaded boxes containing clothes, linens, important books/documents, securely-wrapped kitchen ware (eg, glasses, plates) and small household appliances. The average size of the box was either 20x20x20 or 22x22x22. -3 different sized tables including. I didn't get a chance to disassemble one of them thinking i'd just leave it behind. As for the other two, I took the time to disassemble the legs which I then tucked away underneath the table tops and taped securely in place, thinking I could try to make things easier for the movers by making the process as efficient as possible. -4 pairs of neatly stacked chairs (total of 8 chairs, altogether). -1 antique two-person sofa with a heavy-set wood frame that you simply can't take apart. -1 queen-sized bed including mattress, box spring and frame (which I thought I'd also leave behind). -2 blue storage bins loaded with cook ware and smaller electronics/portables -some accessory items including a tall, long-standing light fixture and a vacuum which I thought about leaving behind as well. -2 overly-filled open-top boxes with trash and garbage -a wine rack and dresser which I actually donated to one of the building maintenance people instead of trashing it Why I chose Apex over four top-rated professional moving companies that I researched about on yelp, google and from word of mouth: Because I was a little pressed with time, I used Thumbtack for the first time and saw a few moving companies reach out to me with pretty reasoable offers. For someone who has moved around quite often, I've learned to do whatever you can to make it easier for the movers from the time of pick-up to the actual drop-off. With that said, I don't always believe in hourly-paid services regardless of industry. There are those who milk the system, providing little service but know how to turn a profit. As a customer, I just wanted to keep it straightforward and honest. I called around, asked for quotes and questioned exactly where each of my hard-earned dollar goes towards. I noticed most places charging hourly rates, sometimes sending over 2 or 3 people to do the job. I also noticed most places charging for 2 or 3-hour minimums. Expecting to pay at the very least, $250-375, I certainly couldn't see myself forking up anything over $650. That's just how it goes. So, I tried my best to make the process very efficient, for my sake as a customer. I kept everything straightforward. I explained exactly in detail what I was moving, how many people I felt could get the job done effectively and what my price point was set at. With that said, I also knew that it takes about 1 hour and 20 minutes in driving distance from downtown Chicago to Winthrop Harbor on a good day. To get the most value, I looked at ways to save time on the loading. I had the building manager assist by reserving the elevator to facilitate moving efforts. From the way I looked at it, I couldn't see this taking any longer than 4 hours at most including the driving itself. So I reached out to Adam from Apex, explained my situation and asked about the $100 flat-fee for travel, which included the truck and the distance. I wanted to take advantage of that especially after other places were trying to mark up their prices by playing into the "well, there could be traffic..." and suggesting that it could take up to 5-7 hours, which I thought was a bit ridiculous. When I called Apex, Adam realized that I wasn't messing around. I told him that I really didn't want to spend more than $500 or so. I also told him I didn't think 3 people would be necessary for the job. Realistically, I knew this would take probably 3.5-4 hours altogether so I wanted to be fair and said I'd be willing to pay $450 to get the job done. He was more than receptive to the idea especially even after I reminded him that I'd be fine with paying a little more if needed. So I just finished up with the move-out today, which went better than I even expected. The two gentlemen had arrived at the loading dock, at least 15 minutes ahead, called me to inform me and even communicated with the building manager directly to coordinate the use of the elevator. These guys were very professional and even down-to-earth. We probably could've chatted for hours but we both realized how important it was not to waste each other's valuable time. I felt awful for jam-packing boxes to full-capacity and asking if they could be kind enough to help with the last minute request in throwing the trash out. Even when I hesitated about taking the bed, the sofa and table, they were so encouraging and helpful, making it all work out. They even disassembled the bed frame and treated each and every item with care, which I appreciated. The move itself took just about 4 hours. For the service they provided, it was definitely worth the $450. Everyone has been accommodating with any of my needs and requests. They're very professional and respectful. Most importantly, they were very open and honest, not worrying about getting the run-around that others would easily take advantage of. Thank you again to everyone at Apex for all your help, making it such a painless move. I would certainly recommend them to anyone looking for a trustworthy, hardworking moving company. And if anyone truly wants to know that I am not fabricating my story, you can certainly reach out to me by email. Ed Mangubat email: closetchef@secretsofaclosetchef.com

We hired Ron to install a new garbage disposal which might include moving the existing pipes. I had originally asked him to install a new kitchen faucet also, but then my husband decided to do that part himself. Ron was still happy to come out just for the disposal. He gave us a quote for the installation and communicated very thoroughly with me about the details of the job. When Ron came out for the installation, he measured the disposal and suggested exchanging it for a smaller model to avoid moving the pipes. My husband agreed and Ron went to store to purchase a smaller disposal. Overall, we were happy with his work and price for the job.

First, he’s a super nice and friendly guy. Second, he will not rip you off. His prices are very reasonable (incomparable in Chicago). Third, he gets the job done. He did a kitchen faucet install for me, and even looked around at a few of the pipes I had done DIY to make sure there weren’t any other issues. He is now my go-to Chicago plumber. He also does electrical if you’re interested.

Konstantin is an expert! I had him plumb a basement, kitchen and washer and dryer hookups. He was able to show me different ways of doing things to work out how it would be most affordable and that was everything! If you want someone professional but also extremely personable and considerate of your needs and budget, he’s your guy!

I hired Kosterna Construction to do various drywall projects, including building the framing and insulating the walls. They also put in support beams where needed, built a sub floor for tile in the kitchen, installed an exterior door with frame, built frames/molding around windows, evened out a sloping floor/ ceiling. I was able to buy my own materials and paid them for the labor. They are very experienced in all new construction and remodeling. Very nice, reliable, easy to work with. I thought they did great work for a fair price and plan on hiring them for future projects! attached are some photos

We had Marek demo and install a new kitchen backsplash for us. His wife, Gracie, handles scheduling/communication and does an amazing job. We were on a tight schedule for both the demo and install due to other trades working in our kitchen and Marek/Gracie did an excellent job on communicating and getting the job done right and on time.

I'd recommend Advantex for any kitchen remodel project. Jim Klingbiel of Advantex Restoration, Inc. said what he was going to do and did what he said. While there was the normal ordering wait for our cabinets and counters, Jim was very good at managing the preliminary work to be done just in time with a minimum of disruption to or family. His people are very courteous and extremely mindful of cleanliness.

I would highly recommend Signature Home Construction. I used them for my complete kitchen remodel. Larry is great to work with and extremely responsive to needs and requests. He and his team are professional, prompt, and honest. They offer great suggestions due to their knowledge and experience. Things I would have never even thought of made a huge difference in kitchen. I have a small kitchen and they miraculously made it look much larger and function in a way I didn’t think possible. They are the complete package...electric, gas, plumbing, carpentry, etc. Awesome company! Adding a couple photos

Ed has done a few projects for me and I've been extremely pleased with his work. He repaired my kitchen ceiling after a soffit was removed and the ceiling is perfect. He also painted my entire condo from floor to ceiling and did an incredible job! He's extremely meticulous and a perfectionist. I also feel very comfortable leaving him alone to work at my place. Every night I came home, my place was immaculate and the paint and tools were even perfectly placed in the same spot every evening. The name of Ed's business "Perfect Interiors, LLC" is exactly that! You will have an excellent client experience trusting Ed with your remodeling, painting, construction plans. Thanks!

I hired Ady to do the kitchen and bathroom in my condo. The labor was fairly inexpensive and Ady's team finished the work on time. They did everything I was looking for and touched up the ceiling that needed a little work. I will definitely hire him again if I need something done in my house again.

Sorry if Carlos is unavailable to do work for you for the next month or so, but I'm planning to use him for other things I need! He did a great job installing a new outlet (looks like it was built with the house), and under cabinet lighting. He also rewired the kitchen lighting to all work from one switch instead of 2 separate ones on opposite sides of the room, and made the extra switch into an outlet for my small appliances. The access holes they made to fish wires were patched to perfection. Carlos and Omar made time in the evenings to complete the work I needed done, one day working until midnight! He doesn't take shortcuts which is very easy for people to do without you realizing it. Even things that are hidden behind walls were done properly. After the work was completed and I was checking it out, there are a couple minor things that I wish we had done differently, but I think that is the case with any remodel or purchase. In a few weeks I won't even notice it!

Lauren was great through our entire house renovation. I didn't comment on value as she worked with a renovation company at the time which included her services. She is thorough, prompt, professional, and her work is outstanding. There were many changes and she responded immediately with options. At a time which can be very stressful dealing with Lauren mitigated the stress. The picture below is our before photo. That is the entire kitchen. For reference the island is 2' x 4'. The pictures on Lauren's website of the kitchen with white cabinets and grey walls is mine. The second photo is the opposite side of the kitchen today.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is a general contractor?

When starting a home remodel or new construction project, you will probably hire a general contractor. A general contractor is a professional who is qualified to take a set of building plans and construct them as outlined. The general contractor may help perform the day-to-day building, or they may just hire workers and oversee all the work activities. In either case, the job of the general contractor is to see that your project gets built.

When you have a building project, ask for bids from various contractors. The bids tell you how much each will charge and what their scope of work will be. Once you have selected a bid, you sign a contract with that general contractor outlining the specifics of the project and the milestones during the project when they will receive payment installments. Once the contract is official, the general contractor will bring in their crew to begin construction. The contractor will manage the workers and subcontractors (anyone who doesn’t work directly for their company but that they need to outsource, like a marble installation pro), order all the materials, obtain work permits, and confirm that all the workers and subcontractors are completing their projects as planned. They typically handle all the payments to the workers and subcontractors, and send you invoice. For all these reasons, it’s also especially important to follow a few smart hiring practices when it comes to finding a general contractor.  If you are organized and competent to oversee construction projects, and are able to make sure everything is being built properly and meeting code, it’s possible you can be your own general contractor.  

What do general contractors charge?

If you’re doing a home remodel, building a new home or embarking on a commercial building project, you’ll hire a general contractor. A general contractor is a professional who is qualified to oversee and execute construction projects. Each construction project is unique; even two duplicate homes built on lots next door to each other could have different construction costs due to factors like different excavation costs when building the foundation. Since each project is unique, many general contractors make bids on potential construction projects. These bids can then break down to a per square foot cost that encompasses the labor of all the workers needed for the job, materials, the scope of work, and any equipment needed. Materials and finishes make a major difference in your cost per square foot. For example, choosing standard kitchen tiles at $3 per square foot will result in a lower total project cost than imported marble tiles that cost $63 per square foot. Where you live will also affect how much general contractors charge, as labor and the cost to do business can cost less in many regions than in high-cost areas like New York or San Francisco. Here are some examples of average costs general contractors typically charge in various regions:

  • Home addition in San Francisco: $250-$270 per square foot.
  • New home construction in Knoxville, Tennessee: $100-$200 per square foot.
  • Kitchen remodel in Tennessee: $40-$80 per square foot, depending on finishes.
  • Bathroom remodel in Vancouver, Washington: $110-$170 per square foot.

Be sure to check out our smart hiring practices when it comes to finding a general contractor.

How do you choose a commercial general contractor?

A commercial contractor provides similar services as a residential general contractor but specializes in working with large-scale projects for businesses, schools, nonprofits, governments and development firms. When researching commercial general contractors, review their portfolio of work and confirm they have ample experience working in the area you need. For example, if you are building a small strip mall, ask if the contractors have experience successfully incorporating all the needed elements such as a parking lot, meeting ADA requirements, accessing the proper permits, and completing work on time.

Once you’ve identified several qualified candidates, request bids for your project and then compare the scope of work with your needs and budget. Your commercial general contractor should oversee design, permitting, construction, materials purchase, and adherence to building code and zoning regulations, as well as sticking to an agreed-upon budget and schedule. It’s important to establish clear communication with your future commercial general contractor, as this will mean a smoother process for everyone. For all these reasons, it’s also especially important to follow a few smart hiring practices when it comes to finding a general contractor.
