My experience was very good, from booking the movers to the movers themselves. They showed up exactly on time, were incredibly courteous throughout the day, tried HARD to move some difficult items and even brought a couch back to our original location when it wouldn't fit. High class, would recommend. It's not a 5 star review because they did scratch up the floors on our new house. It may or may not be fair to ding them for this, as we didn't put down any barrier, but they also didn't ask or anticipate it. I would still absolutely recommend them.

Motion Transports provided excellent service. They finished quickly and did so with great care to not damage any furniture. Having used many movers, this is the first time I give a top review.

Melvin and his team were wonderful and fast! They got me moved out of my old place and into the new place in two hours... start to finish! They were all very nice and polite. They disassembled and reassembled my bedroom furniture with no problems and even showed me how to do it for future reference. If you are looking for a reasonable priced, no hidden cost, local moving company that will come in and get you moved with no problem I would recommend Melvin and Safehands Movers and Delivery System.

Excellent work! The movers were efficient & very helpful! They handled my items with care and made sure to get my things unloaded within the 2 hour time frame that my complex allowed me to borrow the elevator! Very professional. Would definitely hire them again

Everything about our moving experience with We Got You was great. From the start, Joseph was quick to respond, cordial, and professional. We settled the details of the job, and he followed up a couple of days before the job just to confirm. Of course, the afternoon before the move we found out that our truck "reservation" through another, unnamed company (u-can probably guess it) hadn't actually reserved us anything, throwing a huge wrench in our schedule. We Got You immediately accommodated the time adjustments we had to make (that's with like, 12 hours notice) and got our move plans back on track. Day of the move was great. Joseph and David showed up on time and didn't waste any time getting started. They were both competent, confident, and strong movers, and in a couple hours easily emptied an apartment that probably took a day to move into (when we did it ourselves with just friends helping). They were also very careful, both with our things and with the apartment walls. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing moving help, and for what you'll get--courteous, efficient, and quality movers--you can't beat their price. Thanks guys!

I wish there was an option to give a 10 star rating! Earlier this year, I had a horrible experience with M&M Movers who were late, ill-prepared, broke a beautiful piece of furniture because it wasn't wrapped, and then only wanted to give $200 to fix it when the cost to fix was over $3000...and the movers loved to tell us how terrible their day had been. It was a simply awful experience. So I was extremely nervous when I had to hire movers again. Now, I will have Chicagoland Moving & Storage on speed-dial for ANYONE looking to move. They were fantastic in every way. They contacted me quickly. They were able to work with my limited schedule. They came to assess what needed moving to plan accordingly. Their movers were 15 minutes early, simply delightful, were quick but completely thorough. It was the most amazing experience. Unless you have experienced the stress of moving, you would not completely understand how important this experience was for me and my family. Thank you, everyone, at Chicagoland Moving & Storage. Amazing in every way and I am forever grateful. - Lesley Picchietti, raving fan

The company we were renting the truck from changed our reservation at the last minute. We had the movers booked for 7:45 am, but had to change it to 1pm. I called Brian at 6am, he answered, and assured me he's do everything he could to get me helpers! They were able to get us two movers around 2 pm, and they had my 2 bedroom apartment loaded in just over 2 hours. They were beyond professional and courteous. I can not say enough nice things about Anthony and Richard, and I can't thank Brian enough for pulling through on a very hectic day! I strongly recommend!

I would highly recommend Tom and Pinhead Piano Movers for a piano move. Tom is very professional. The move was scheduled quickly and was discounted as we utilized Tom to tune the piano as well. He and his crew arrived on time, quickly moved the piano without any issues. He assessed the piano for tuning after the move and advised us as to what needed to be done. I had no idea there was so much involved with tuning a piano but Tom explained it all extremely well to my non-musician's ears. The tuning was scheduled and completed on time as promised. Tom also discounted the tuning since we had utilized him for the move. I would hire Pinhead Piano movers again without hesitation.

Movers were on time. They had the table packed up in less than an hour. Setup at the new place was about an hour and half. Caused no disturbance and left no mess behind. Highly recommended.

I hired Pick Up Movers to move my belongings from Indiana to Alabama last month. Everything about these guys was so professional. They were punctual, both during arrival and delivery. My belongings were very safely transported by these capable and experienced movers. There was not even a scratch on them when they were delivered. The movers were always so helpful and friendly. This level of efficiency is so rare to find these days.

Nice movers, on time, efficient, worked there butts off on one of the hottest days of the summer, up and down multiple flights of stairs for 2.5 hours and never once complained and or asked for a break. I had to remind them to take a break. Highly recommend their services if you have to move fast one a budget. The only thing they didn't offer were moving supplies and a truck.

To be honest, it was awful. The movers didn't cover any of our floors and it was was raining outside, not only were my previous floors caked in mud but my new house was covered in mud and dirt as well from their shoes. My furniture wasn't wrapped and it was coming wet from the rain. My daughters toys had leaves and dirt on them. My desk was damaged and is now useless. I told the owner while they were there how badly it was going, and she was incredibly defensive and didn't believe me. Apparently one of the movers is her son, so instead she called him to tell him I was complaining which just made everything worse. They movers stopped working for a while because she wanted a "resolution," and all I wanted was for the nightmare to end. We went back and forth probably 6 times on 6 different phone calls, and the owner kept asking me how I wanted to resolve this. I explained several times that the service I received was not at all worth the $500 I was paying, and basically what I got back was "well the job got done, right?" Yeah, my stuff was moved. But I would have gotten the same result if I hired some high school kids off Craigslist for fifty bucks. On the last phone call the owner was much more apologetic, and said she's never received any complaints before, which I don't believe because I see the same complaints on the yelp page. She offered a $30 refund, though I never received that either. I hate leaving such a bad review but I don't want anyone making the same mistake I did. It was truly an awful experience.

We had a great experience working with Will and his team at V1Painting. From the start we were very impressed with Will's professionalism and responsiveness. We messaged briefly through the app and Will was able to come over that same day to provide a quote. We used V1Painting to paint the entirety, (walls, trim, ceilings) of our 2 bedroom condo and they did a great job. They ensured all the surfaces were prepped properly prior to painting and covered all of our floors and belongings from damage. At the end of the day and project they made sure to clean up after themselves and put everything back where it was originally. My husband and I were in a time crunch as we wanted to get all the painting done before we had the movers deliver our furniture. The whole process, from submitting the project to finish, took less than a week. Will was very flexible with the timing and our work schedules. He was always on time. The team did a great job. I would 100% use them again for any painting I needed done and would recommend them to others as well. I have zero complaints.
