The movers arrived 30minutes early which was great!! They got the job done in 2 hours including my travel time. The 2 men were efficient, fast, and handled all of my belongings with care. One of the guys even fixed one of my furniture pieces that had been broken for months. Overall, I would hire Extreme Movers again and would highly recommend. Thank you to you all for such an easy move.

Arthur & his moving partner arrived on time, worked efficiently, accommodated my need for some furniture dissasembly and reassembly, completed the job under 2 hours (for my local move from one Northside neighborhood to another) — I read reviews before booking Keep It Up and found the details really helpful, so I’m providing lots of my own! I’d recommend these guys to anybody in Chicago for a friendly experience at a great value. Thanks Keep It Up!

Three men carefully moved heavy furniture in our home. They were attentive to our needs and fit large pieces through tight spaces without touching fresh paint. They were cheerful, courteous and industrious. We will call them again in the future.

We hired Roy from Motion Transport based on his competitive estimate and excellent reviews. They were able to schedule us with only one day's notice! They moved an antique bedroom set we purchased off of Craigslist from a second floor condo in Palatine to our storage unit in Naperville. The young lady we bought the furniture from at the condo texted me and told me they arrived right on time and worked quietly, quickly and carefully. She said they were extremely courteous. My husband met Roy and his associate on the receiving end in Naperville. All the furniture was padded and all arrived in perfect condition. We are extremely pleased with Roy Rhodes of Motion Transports. We will use his services again.

I hired TLF services to move our furniture to a different apartment in the same building. The movers were punctual, very friendly, took extreme care in assembling and disassembling furniture, also moved it around a bit for us to see decoration wise and finished the job well within the time limit. I will definitely hire TLF services again.

King David Moving has the most trustworthy moving team I have ever hired. These people know their job too well and will work as hard and as long as necessary until they finish it right. They packed, wrapped and moved all my furniture from Naperville to Glencoe so professionally without a problem. I am so and very thankful and grateful for you guys and for your company that trained you so professional!

Chano and his crew painted the entire interior of our condominium. They did an outstanding job in each room and on all the ceilings, and you could tell they were very experienced with their technique and took pride in their work. It took five days and they were neat and courteous at all times. They moved the furniture and put it all back when finished. The crew also helped us change out some light fixtures, replaced a part in one of our ceiling fans, and replaced a malfunctioning recessed light in the bathroom. We are proud to show our family and friends the finished paint job which completely transformed and complemented our living space. Chano is polite, dependable, and reliable; we have already recommended him and his crew to other people we know.

These guys were great. We had a 4 bedroom house worth of things to move out of two storage units and into a house. They recommended 4 people and quoted us 6.5 hours. Coordinating with Joel before the move was a piece of cake. They worked hard and deliberately on the clock but never rushed while handling things or packing the truck. They wrapped and took good care of the nicer pieces of furniture (worth the extra $) and were very receptive to us directing which box went where in the house. In the end, they were faster than expected, wrapped some things for extra $, and the total was very close to the quoted price.

I hired 'We Got You' to help me move all the heavy furniture from one condo to another within the same building. 5 stars because Joey did everything he said he would do throughout the whole process. 1. Told me he would call me - then he called me. 2. Told me he would show up at 9am on Saturday. I went to the lobby of my building at 8:55 and got a coffee- they walked in the door at 9am - right on the button. 3. Said they could handle all the furniture and would take good care of it - and they did. Took great care with all the throw pillows to the couch and chairs for the table. Did the same with the television and entertainment center. Great guys - great move. Worth every penny.

I have worked with quite a few movers throughout my life, and I have to say, Granat Labor is BY FAR the best. Derek and his crew work hard AND they work fast to get the job done and keep the cost down. My move could not have gone better thanks to Derek (the owner). Derek came to my home to give me a realistic estimate regarding how many hours my move would take. Derek keeps it simple - he gives you 1 hourly rate that includes everything (unlike most other moving companies that make it so complicated and expensive by inflating the price by having separate fees for the truck, the guys, the fuel, etc.) AND Derek will also give you a realistic time estimate so their are no surprises on moving day. The day of my move Derek and his crew were on time, worked fast, and were careful with our boxes and furniture. I even had a piece of furniture that after they brought it into our house, we decided we wanted to get rid of, and Derek moved it back out, no problem. Also, we had furniture we wanted to get rid of and hauled away from both our old house and our new house. Derek charged us a very reasonable fee to get rid of it for us. He made a special trip back the next day to haul it away from both houses. Talk about an easy stress free move. I would not consider any other moving company other than Granat Labor. What an outstanding experience during a time in most peoples' lives that is very stressful. Derek takes the stress and complexity out of moving. I highly recommend this company!

The responsiveness from Liberty from the quoting to the scheduling was very good. We specifically waited for the weekend until they could make us the first move of the day. Unfortunately, the day before, I received a call asking if we could push the time to noon instead of 8am. I agreed; but never again. The house before ours gave a 2 hour estimate that actually resulted in 6 hours; not Liberty's fault. I received a call from one of the movers at 2pm stating they were just starting to unload the previous house. By 5:30, I called him back asking when they would be there only to be told that another crew had been called in to help and was assigned to our move; they showed up at 5:40. So our day was wasted waiting for the movers to come with almost no communication on the status. But the crew that did show up more than made up for the late arrival/communication issues. They were nothing short of amazing. Because of them, we would use Liberty again. They were 3 of the hardest working guys I've met. We had an over-sized couch that was too big to fit through the door; they brainstormed, tried different ideas, communicated well with each other to figure out how to get this done without ruining our door or couch. They should have been cursing by this point, but they remained so pleasant and determined. They wrapped all our furniture even though we hadn't requested it. And they didn't waste time; they powered through quickly and got us done in 2 hours. We will be calling them again when we move into a new house, but I will insist on being the first move of the day this time. To Liberty's defense, they are at the mercy of homeowners being honest about the scope of the move, so I understand how things run long; I just wish there had been better communication about it on that day so that we were able to get things done rather than waiting all day not knowing. Despite that, excellent customer service and excellent quality of work.

I had a very smooth and hassle free move. They came on time, were very polite and highly professional. They worked efficiently and managed to move out large furniture from two apt s and move into a third in around 4 hours. I would highly recommend them.

I would highly recommend Travis and his crew for any moving needs. With my recent move I had a very nice experience with him. Travis himself visited my house ahead of time to provide me with an accurate and realistic quote for my move. On the day of the move they arrived on time and were very thorough and organized with the job. They took care of securely packing, loading, transporting and unloading the furniture and all the booxes. They also took care or de-assembling and re-assembling the beds and other large furniture as needed. Moreover they were value for money and highly professional !

I called them less than 24 hours in advance of my move, but the movers still arrived right on time and started without delay. They worked extremely hard and managed to get some large, very awkwardly shaped pieces of furniture down then back up stairs without any issues. The whole move was significantly less expensive than one of the ‘name brands’ in moving — would definitely recommend!

Friendly, got back to my request quickly and arrived on time. They were able to move a large and heavy piece of furniture (armoire) that was too heavy and cumbersome for us to handle. They were worked quickly and safely. Thank you - we appreciate your help on this.

Fabian and Moses were wonderful. They arrived right on time, worked super hard and efficiently, and were just generally kind and lovely people. I needed my stuff moved from a shipping pod in Des Plaines to a storage unit in Avondale. The movers who had loaded my stuff in Philadelphia hadn't done a great job and some of the furniture was scratched upon arrival. Fabian and Moses rewrapped my furniture so it wouldn't get damaged any further. They also asked me what my plans were and then arranged everything in my storage unit so it would be easily accessible. All of this was completed in a little over two hours, which was just a hair over the original estimate. I highly recommend these folks!

I highly recommend University Mover’s Services. They were so professional and experienced. From start to finish, University Movers made my moving experience pleasant and so efficient! I had a lot of old and heavy furniture that the movers handled so well, particularly with the extensive stairs and small entrance ways on the property. Thank you for such a smooth moving experience this weekend!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much should you tip furniture movers?

Moving furniture is hard work and potentially dangerous unless you’re properly equipped. For anyone not ready to handle their heavy oak armoire alone, professional furniture movers can safely and efficiently move your items to another room in your house or across town as needed. The national average cost to hire heavy furniture movers is $150-$200 per hour. This rate could include multiple furniture movers working as a team to move items such as beds, armoires, billiards tables, pianos, shelves, tables, entertainment centers and more. Hourly rates can vary by region. If your furniture movers have arrived on time, done a great job, kept your home and belongings protected from scratches and dings, and completed the move as planned, a tip will be greatly appreciated. Moving companies suggest approximately 10 percent of the total bill as gratuity for those doing local moving jobs, which is also a good guideline for tipping heavy furniture movers. If the total bill for heavy moving was $100 and two workers were onsite, consider giving them $10 total, or $5 each for a job well done.
