Great Job moved everything within the expected time frame for a good price and great customer service no hassles! Highly Recommend Rogers moving service if you're moving!
I was physically sick but had to move. Johnny on the spot basically saved my LIFE. They went farrrrr and beyond what a usual MOVING SERVICE would do. It was personal. I am a 60 year old woman with married children. They were not available to help me when I needed it. I could not have made it without JOHNNY ON THE MOVE!!!!!! Thank-U JOHNNY I WILL NEVER USE ANYONE OTHER THAN YOU FOR MY MOVING NEEDS.......... Linda (westmont, IL.)
We hired this service to move a large sectional sofa and a very heavy coffee table from one house to another. The 2 men were professional, courteous, and completed the job without any damage to the furniture and within the 2 hours they proposed, so they came in on-budget. I would definitely hire this service again.
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: firstname.lastname@example.org
These guys are great! I had a sleeper couch that we weren't able to get in the front and Dean was sure to get it in! He even had to remove the door and take it around back! They moved me 2 years ago too and same experience. I will use them everytime I move and I recommend them to anyone who needs help moving! Great service! Great company! They go above and beyond!
Great service. On time and moved furniture with care. Will definitely use TLF again.
I've only used a moving service on three other occasions. This was by far the best experience I have had. Professional individuals with a focus on getting the job done correctly and expediently.
Choose Alliance for a stress free move! From the excellent customer service in setting up my move to the professional and quality movers, I’m confident I made a great decision in choosing Alliance. The price was fair and we matched our estimate. Our items were moved efficiently yet with care.
Everything was great, safe and reliable service. They put together several furniture items from IKEA, beds, wall shelves, dresser. Service was so great, I even called for a 2nd time when I needed an urgent repair of a cabinet door. Ricky arrived the same day of call and repaired problem in just a few minutes.
The Specialtists Moving Services were excellent. They were professional and prompt and provided great service. I highly recommend them and will use them again.
As advertised 5 Star Service...moving is not a fun process but having the right movers makes all the difference. I would recommend to anybody looking for quality service at a reasonable rate!!
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
Excellent service, I definitely recommend them to anyone needing moving services
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.
JD moving services did an excellent job moving my treadmill, which required disassembly as well as assembly. Derek even came back at a later date with a special part so that everything was hooked up correctly.
They moved us and the service was excellent and everyone was helpful, friendly and efficient. Highly recommended !!!
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.
I was very happy with the service. I was moving a lot of heavy items into a house and the two guys really worked hard to get the job done. They had a strong work ethic and helped organize the move. Their help was a real lifesaver and a very good value. I would recommend.
Patrick offers a quality service at an affordable price. He took his time and showed much care while assembling my shed. I recommend him to you. Very easy to work with.
My experience was extremely pleasant, as both individuals were professional and kind. In fact, he’s also moving my rooomate and picking up some furniture I purchased. Would highly recommend his services and keep him in mind for the near future. Blessings, Cristina
Jay and Will did a great job of helping out with two separate jobs, both moving furniture. Jay was flexible to how we setup the move and was experienced enough to know the best way to approach moving the different pieces. Would definitely work with him again.
