This was a really good experience. We had two movers to move one person's belongings from a studio in Ravenswood into a one-bedroom in River North. Upon making my reservation, they suggested that the work might be done in as little as two hours. I thought that was ambitious, but the price was excellent regardless. Well, they actually completed the work in two hours on the nose, and they did an amazing job. Great work, professional, efficient. I highly recommend. (For the record, I was quoted almost 2x-3x as much from other movers in the city. For a smaller move like this, these folks were ideal.)

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.

They were on time and prepared with all the moving materials. They went out of their way to ask about certain items and were very efficient. The move was really flawless with everything delivered without a scratch and not a thing missing. If you are looking for reliable and honest movers. Safehands Movers is the one to go to!

These guys were great. First off, they were super accommodating when I had to change the move time the very day of the scheduled move. Two guys moved our apartment in 2 hours, including disassembling and reassembling our bed. They helped us figure out the best way to configure our living room which was a little nutty I must admit. And, this is a big one, they managed to get our big couch out of the old apartment and into the new apartment without any damage to the couch or the building, which the previous movers couldn't pull off (and there were 3 of them). Friendly, communicative, helpful, accommodating. I totally recommend these guys. I think, though, that they should get a dolly just to make things a little easier on themselves. :)

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 Specialists Moving Services, Inc. was fantastic from beginning to end. We asked for an in-person estimate for our move out of a 3-bedroom condo into a single family home. The agent, Joel, was professional and gave us a very fair price even though we were on a short time frame for the move. The four movers came on 12/28 (three days after Christmas in the snow in Chicago) on time and ready to go! Our movers were experts, friendly and gentle with our many belongings. They worked tirelessly through difficult winter moving conditions and never once complained. Our move was a very positive experience. We recommend this company highly. Ask for Jesus and Sergio!

My initial movers canceled the day off the move. After countless Google searches and Yelp reviews, not to mention the hassle of actually moving on the 1st. I was so thankful for Mobile Moving. My fiancé and I rented a truck and we're going to move everything by ourselves. After long hours we were able to move everything into the Uhaul but we're quit tired and wanted professionals to help us move everything into the new condo from the Uhaul. During my last desperation to find a movers on the day of thumtack sent me contact information for Mobile Moving and before I could send my question, Mr. Derrick had already contacted me. This company is professional, reliable, timely and incredibly affordable. Definitely will use on my next move and the array of payment options was wonderful. (Chase QuickPay, Cash, Paypal) Thank you

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.

They were ready to be flexible depending on our needs. We only had 1 hour job of moving. And, they were nice enough to charge only for one hour. Every other movers we called in the area were charging minimum 3 hours even for 1 hour job. They were also available to do the work right away in an hour. They worked perfect for us, since our need was urgent. I would recommend them.

After a disappointing experience with a previous mover, I am pleased to state the experience with J C Movers was exceptional. My item was outside the metro Chicago area but the moving company agreed to my request. They were punctual, professional, and contacted me throughout the process. Highly recommend and would use again.

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.

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.
