These guys are very good. The price is right, Chris is very responsive when you have questions, and the movers are professional. When challenges come up (limited parking for the truck, large items that are difficult to get through the doors, etc.), the guys don't complain and make you feel like it won't be a problem. We moved my 2 bedroom apartment to a single family home an hour and a half away in just about 6 hours. I've had three other movers before, and IVM are definitely the best. I highly recommend them.

One of the BEST pool table movers to work with. Jason had to make two trips once to drop off the dismantled table and then back again few months later to assemble it. Though he had a tight schedule he was able to get it done for our party. AWESOME work and very happy to recommend his work.

I have never hired movers before and I have to say that I was VERY pleased with Rob’s Jobs. The movers were on time, early even. They took great care to make sure every piece of furniture was wrapped and properly cared for. I had a lot of mirrored furniture that was moved and every single piece arrived unbroken and unscratched. I definitely recommend them and will recommend them to anyone that I know is moving anytime soon. The job took longer than expected, however it was well worth it in the end. They made my move 1000x easier for me. They unassembled and reassembled several pieces of furniture when they arrived at my house. The movers were professional and courteous. I had been quoted outrageous prices by other moving companies, and even with the “overage” Rob’s Jobs was competitive. If I was planning on moving again anytime soon, I would definitely hire them again. I wish I could give them more stars. I am astounded by what a great job they did. Thank you!!!!!!

Not only did they keep constant contact before arrival, they where early on a Saturday worked diligently through 85 degree weather with high humidity! I could not have ask for 2 better guys to help us. I would not only recommend them but they would be the first movers I would say to call. The care and respect they showed with our belongings spoke volumes about them.... not to mention even bringing treats for our doggies who were very sad to see them leave. If you hire one company to take care of your move...be it large or small...this is who you call! Thank you guys...

We used use this company on very short notice. They did an excellent job. They were very meticulous with the blanket wrapping of our furniture and we were very pleased to see how much they went thru to protect our furniture. I had lower bids but very happy we choose them after the job they did. I will recommend them to everyone I know. Thank you Steve and team.

I have been using Johnson's Moving and More since I moved to Illinois 3 years ago. They helped me greatly during a very difficult move. I thought I was set to close on a house, but it got held up. The trailer loaded with all my furniture had been dropped at the house, and I needed to get it unloaded. Unfortunately, the closing was delayed, and the seller would not allow me to move anything in. So they had to unload the trailer in DeKalb, load everything into a U-Haul, drive all the way up to Rockford, which was the nearest storage place that had room, and unload it all there. After several days, and many difficulties in the sales deal, the seller said I could move in if I paid daily rent, so back up to Rockford, load up, down to DeKalb, and unload. While they were unloading, I found that the refrigerator was not working, had no shelves, and the ice maker had been removed, and repairs that were supposed to be made had not been done. By this time, I was just over it with that seller, and decided that if they would not agree to the terms, I would cancel the deal. So back they came to DeKalb, and up to Rockford again while I found another house. After about a month, they finally were able to move me in to my house. By this point, I think they knew my furniture better than I did. Throughout all the moves, all the crews James brought out were invariably quick, efficient, polite, and actually fun to be around. But the part I like best about the company is the "& More". I have had them out to do so many other things: gutter cleaning, electrical work, carpentry, painting, even house cleaning. One time they even moved a dinosaur for me. Today it was installing lights, finishing a great garage reorganization, and tearing out carpet. They are great people to work with, they do a fine job every time, and they are very reasonable in their pricing. I particularly like that they don't charge for travel time to the job, because I'm about an hour away from them. On occasion they haven't been able to come when I was expecting them, but that's usually due to a move taking longer than expected, or something of that sort. And since I'm retired, one day is pretty much as good as the next, and they always make it up to me if they're delayed. In short, I really can't say enough good things about James and his people, and I feel very fortunate to have found them.

I needed to transfer a few items from storage to my home, and Netza and his partner were very careful with my furniture. They wrapped my stuff up with a moving blanket and gently secured it inside their truck. They were also very patient and polite while I figured out how to best arrange my rooms.

My childhood good friend Jonathon gave me their quantity and strongly really helpful their identify once I was in search of an affordable and dependable moving company. I known as them and talked with their gross sales workforce about the matter. They were very attentive and likewise asked me some questions to know concerning the nature of the move. They also came at my place just 2 days earlier than the move to check what their movers shall be up against. I liked their seriousness. At the day of the move movers showed up on time. They started the move very carefully but they were never operating behind the schedule. They had been good to wrap, move and store all my belongings at the new place. I used to be amazed after checking my inventory. I did not discover a single scratch at anything!! I used to be also very proud of the amount that I paid for the move. I am certain that this company is among the high three of the town.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
