The guys at Rogers were fantastic. We were in communication before, during, and after we completed our move. The movers themselves were professional and courteous, wrapped all of our fragile items like glass, TVs, etc... professionally with care. Nothing was damaged - property nor belongings. They moved us in under four hours, and were great to work with. Their hourly rates are also far less than other popular Chicagoland moving companies', so we were happy to tip the guys generously for their hard work. We will 100% be recommending them to our city-friends and family who might be looking for a move.
Forget Two Men and a Truck... hire these guys instead. I got a quote from Two Men and a Truck to move only the large furniture from my 2 bedroom condo less than 3 miles away to my new house, and they quoted me nearly $800! I searched Thumbtack and found Extreme Movers. I got a much more reasonable quote that was under half of what Two Men were going to charge me. Antonio and Fernando who came and did the move were very nice, fast and efficient. Most importantly, they handle your belongings with great care as if they were moving their own stuff. I cannot praise this moving company enough. Make sure to check them out before you think about hiring Two Men and a Truck. You will not be disappointed.
These guys are true PROS at what they do. Their level of communication is second to none, I always received a response in minutes to any questions I had prior to move. The fees were explained in detail and there truly were no hidden fees like I’ve had in the past with other moving companies. I can’t speak enough to their level of professionalism and kindness. They moved my second floor apartment to a 3rd floor- 2 flights of stairs per floor, apartment, in 90+ degrees and didn’t seem to be bothered by the heat. These guys are the best and I will be a return customer anytime I need something moved!! Thanks again for your excellent work. It was greatly appreciated and I wish you guys the best in growing your business! -Lilly
Apex crew was really great to work with. I called about 6 different moving companies to get a quote and Apex was the best deal. They do not charge for accessories they use to wrap your furniture, unlike other moving companies. The crew that we worked with on moving day was great too. They were friendly and did not stop working all day! Thank you so much Apex for your great service, especially Christopher, Antonio, and Richard who went above and beyond. To Sandra and the gentleman I booked with, thank u!!
Roy and his team at Motion Transports are amazing. I had a scheduling issue come up last minute with another moving company and Roy was quick to step in and help get my dresser moved the same day. “Why put off tomorrow what could be done today”. Not many moving companies stand by this value!
Great experience with Ollie and Angelo from TLF - they came on relatively short notice on a Sunday, and helped us move some of our bigger items in less than the time quoted by other moving companies. They let us know when they were on their way and arrived a bit early, and immediately got to work quickly and efficiently. Would recommend to anyone looking for reasonable moving rates!
Very happy with the service. Completed multiple small jobs around the house (install 3 light fixtures, secured furniture, install curtain rods and blinds). Price reasonable. Very professional, easy to reach for communication and always on time.
Alliance was the best moving experience, from the first phone call to the final handshake. I found them using Thumbtack, and within the first hour of submitting my request, I was contacted by Phyllis to schedule an on-site estimation. We scheduled a date and time that worked, and on that date, right on time, they showed up and gave me a very thorough in-person review of everything I'd need packed and shipped. They were the only moving company who came out for an in-person estimate (others either just wanted a list of things, or did a "virtual" estimate, but Alliance went that extra miles to really see for themselves what we needed to move, helping us feel confident we were on the same page for the quote.) We had a special situation that would spread our move out over several days, requiring us to store items on their truck (essentially locking up one of their trucks for a couple nights, preventing them from using it) and they offered me a very reasonable quote for all the services, including storage. We called no fewer than 6 other moving companies, and despite other companies having more "word of mouth" recommendations from friends, nobody was able to meet or beat Alliance's service and quote - and this was even BEFORE any actual moving started. We just felt the most comfortable and cared for with Alliance, so we went with them. Absolutely no regrets - they made what was a stressful move into a breeze. The team came in, packed up everything that was odd-shaped like lamps and mirrors, and were very careful with my already-packed delicate items and breakable kitchen stuff. They had our 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom (3rd floor WALKUP) condo cleared out within 4 hours, and with smiles on all of their faces. They even were so sweet to our two dogs; I even loved the shirts they wore that said "If your dog doesn't like someone, maybe you shouldn't either" or something like that - well, our dogs were very comfortable with them despite the stressful situation of strangers taking away all of their stuff! That's how you know they're good guys :) Two days later, they rolled up again, and had our new house moved in within 3 hours again. The final bill came in under-budget and 100% perfect - nothing scratched, broken, or damaged. I would recommend Alliance to anyone looking for movers who care, who really focus on customer service from start to finish, and who really go that extra mile to make your move less stressful. Let's face it, moving sucks, but Alliance is the best at making it an actually pleasant experience. Thank you Alliance!
I hired this company to move a washer and dryer from one location to another. They completed the job without any issues for a great price. I would use them again.
I have used many different moving companies and they all seem to be similar when it comes to rates, number of movers provided and liability policies. I found these guys from Thumbtack and decided to give them a try since their rate was slightly lower but the most important factor for me was they had 3 movers coming over when all other companies only provided 2 for an 1 bed move. That equates to getting the job done faster so that not only I save money but also save my time! And oh yeah, I was right of course. They finished up my move more than 1 hour earlier than my previous moves and nothing was damaged. Nothing was scratched. They wrapped just about everything with either shrink wraps or blankets real fast. I mean really really fast. These guys are terminators.. They were really good at following my instructions and everything was executed nicely. I bought them a dozen pack of Tecate for job well done on top of my more than usual tip and they gave 2 bottles back to us to enjoy. Super friendly people. Give them a shot on your next move!
I would hope that other service based businesses would take a clue from Bacues Billards. Please give customers the same outstanding professional quality service as Bacues Billards gave me!! Jason Bacues was absolutely the best service business I have ever worked with, bar none! I would not hesitate to recommend him and Bacues Billards for anyone interested in moving or (dis) assembly of a pool table.or similar item... whether it be locally or across the country. Thank you again Jason!
Ron and his team are absolutely fantastic. We had a big move into a large apartment, with a stop at a storage unit in between. I requested quotes from five different companies and Chicagoland Moving and Storage was the only one to actually come out and meet us in person before quoting the job. On the day of the move the team was professional, friendly, and super efficient. They arrived right on time and worked hard. We have quite a few delicate furniture pieces as well as nicely framed artwork. They took great care with everything, wrapped the things we couldn't, and moved them safely from place to place. Ron and his company are honest, they give you a straightforward estimate with no surprises. They professionalism from start to finish really inspired confidence which is why for our next move I will be calling them again. I would HIGHLY recommend them.
My fiancee and I just moved to Evanston. We had a 10 feet U-Haul with furniture and boxes for a studio. From all the offers I received, We Got You gave me the best deal both in price and commitment. Unlike all the other moving companies, We Got You did not force us to commit to 2 hours of service. This was impoetant because my fiancew and I knew the unloading to the apartment would take an hour max. They in fact finished in one hour and thats all they charged us for. Best part is that the 2 members that came to do the unloading were friendly and even did even more by helping us set up the big furniture where we wanted it and putting together things like the bed and frame together. They were also very accommodating because we changed our arrival time 3 times on them due to eoad delays and they did not mind. Overall, excellent Moving Company and most likely if I have to move again within the city, I will reach out to them directly
All perfect, timing, price, i saved 175 dollars compared to other moving companies, just call this company, my five stars for this company, 😀😀😀😀👌👌
We are very impressed with the professional team of Pinhead Piano . They did an excellent job of moving the piano, right from arriving( before)on time, inspecting and planning the move , making sure that neither property nor piano gets any damage and getting it to our house. Such a stress free move , we will definitely recommend Pinhead Piano for their awesome piano moving services. Anusree
They handled all of or pre-packed boxes and all our furniture with care. We have some exspensive pieces and had a negative experience with a previous move/moving company, so it was refreshing to have a good experience. There was great communication throughout, and did an excellent job fitting everything into our storage unit. The only problem, was we planned to pay by credit card. We were told by the office that was fine a few days in advance, and that there would be a 3% charge, which we were ok with. The head mover told us this was fine when he arrived, then proceeded to have us fill out the paperwork. At the end of the move he then came to us and said he couldn't get ahold of the office and we'd have to pay by cash. He said if we didn't pay by cash we'd have to wait endlessly to hear back from the office. We didn't believe what he was saying, but obliged because we were on a time constraint. We felt a little scammed and are now unsure if we will use them again when we complete the second part of our move this summer. We'd probably require written communication from them, that we will exclusively pay by card and there will not be any other options the day of.
I always thought moving companies are no good. Then I hired Pick Up Movers which completely changed my mind. I got a hint of their efficiency when I called them first. Their customer service was very helpful and prompt. The best part of their service was the moving team. They were so punctual and efficient. The movers were so fast at the packing and loading process. The delivery was made on time and everything was in perfect condition. All my prejudices about moving companies are gone.
Provided great service. Was friendly, on time and completed job quickly and efficiently. Had resonable rates compared to other companies. Worked around my schedule to get job done.
I hired two Bellhops for two hours to help me move out of my storage unit onto the moving truck. Having the extra hands helped to alleviate any stress of moving and they did all the heavy lifting. The entire process was expedited because of their assistance.
I had difficulties starting my lawn mower this Memorial day weekend yet Patrick's prompt and professional knowledge came in perfect timing. He was able to fix my mower the next day & within an hour; thats much appreciated. I will definitely recommend him to others if seeking similar small engine repairs. Thanks again Patrick Wyller!

She was terrific..! Super fast, super logical. Helped me organize the chaos of a post-decorating storage unit move.
