Johnny 's service was excellent. They were efficient, friendly and very reasonably priced when moving my daughter from one apartment to another. I highly recommend Johnny On The Move services to anyone in the Chicago area. They are the BEST! Sincerely, Andrea Shaw Markzon A Satisfied Customer
These guys were great for my move. Wasn't moving far, but needed help with some heavy lifting. They did not let the 80+ degree heat or 3 - floor walk up get in their way. Very effective use of time and great deal for the services offered. Would hire 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: email@example.com
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!
My boyfriend and I moved yesterday into our new place and King David Moving was great. The company called to confirm our move the day before, and the lead mover, Martin, called when he was 15 minutes away the day of the move. We had a move window of 8-9, and they were there right on time. We had three movers for moving a 2bed. We were finished right around 1 or so - under the estimated time and budget. Martin and crew were super fast and very nice. Best move experience in Chicago.
Everything went well with the move...the guys did a great job. Even in 90 degree heat. The only item that didnt make the move was a glass lamp shade (still trying to locate it). Other than that, all my items in my packed 2 bedroom apartment made it to my new house in a little over 3 hours (an hour less than i was expecting!) I was charged for some packing materials but overall the price was fair. Well worth the cost than moving everything ourselves.
I was scheduled for a move with another moving company and those movers cancelled. I was able to contact A New Beginning movers at the very last minute for an immediate move and transport of her belongings into storage. Although they didn't arrive on the time that we agreed on (I was told that they had another job before our moving appointment). Once they arrived, they were very professional and treated our items with care as they were packed, transported and placed into storage. Jamal (company mover) and his team were very professional and courteous. I would consider and recommend them for any future moving needs. Thanks!
Great moving experience! They were professional, efficient, friendly and took care of extra things we needed to get done. We highly recommend them.
The Specialtists Moving Services were excellent. They were professional and prompt and provided great service. I highly recommend them and will use them again.
They were great. We had a hicup in moving on a weekend and had to reschedule and Joe was completely accommodating. On the day of moving Joe and another mover were on time and even helped pick up the u-haul. We had about 15 medium and heavy duty boxes along with some basic furniture and they helped load everything in 45 mins and was done very carefully. I would definitely recommend these guys for accommodating us even 1 day before we moved and being super easy to work with.
Chicagoland staff from owners to staff made my move so easy. I needed a short but quick turnaround and they delivered. On moving day the crew called ahead and sowed up on time. Erick and Carlos were fast, efficient and really careful with my belongs. The furniture was covered with blankets and wrapped for protection. Nothing broken or damaged in the move. Chicagoland Moving and Storage will get my business again for future moving needs - near or far.
Packed is the best moving company I've ever used! David provided excellent service - from the in-home estimate to the updates on moving logistics to the last box that he and his crew unloaded. The load and unload occurred very quickly and efficiently, and all of my belongings were handled with the utmost care. I felt very cared for as a customer. I can't say enough good things about this moving company!
I cannot believe I am actually posting a positive review about a moving company!! I have moved so many times over the last ten years and there is ALWAYS a problem - shady characters trying to take advantage with pricing, movers hounding you for a tip, showing up late, or just nasty attitudes. However, In Demand Movers is LEGIT!! Lee was open and upfront about pricing. They confirmed they were coming the day before. They showed up on time and even called to let me know they were on their way. Javy and his team were OUTSTANDING for the entire move. They were the friendliest and hard-working group of young men I have met in a long time. It was absolutely freezing the day of our move (10 degrees out at best) and they acted as if it was 75 degrees and sunny outside - they did not let the weather impact their mood or our move. I am telling you, they were terrific. Not only were they helpful and friendly, the finished on-time and at the estimated price!! How about that??!! The only thing I would fix - and to be clear the guys had no idea about this - was their truck was leaking oil and left a stain on my driveway. Again, they did not know and I saw it after they left. I am not someone who often posts stuff, but Lee, Javy, and their team were awesome. I HIGHLY recommend using them!!
I love this company for the work they did to ensure my move. I was moving my family and we needed to someone who was careful enough to do all the work without even lifting a finger. They do everythin from start to finish and gave me a very competitive quote by beating the other company's price. Their customer service and dispatched helped me through the whole time after I booked and reserved my space in their truck and then upon delivery I was pleased with the professionalism of the foremen
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.
These men did a fantastic job! They were very accommodating (I needed the truck to come early in the morning and make multiple stops) and they were the only people willing to do so! Moving from the suburbs to the city, they were able to lift all of our heavy objects, and move SO QUICKLY into the new Chicago apartment. We had a time crunch and they were able to work within it. I would highly recommend these 2 men for your next move. They are also very kind!
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.
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
Great movers! Fast,polite and very professional.They came early, wrapped everything carefully and even provided services to take apart my bed that had stripped screws on the lats.no extra charge.Moving in was even faster.Nothing damaged or scratched.Grear family company.
My Experience With Roger’s Moving Service Was Amazing From The Workers To The Management. Well Mannered, Every Thing Was Done In A Timely Manner & Great Prices! 5 Stars I Will Definitely Be A Returning Customer!!!!!
Ace Moving company was a great price for quality moving services. They were prompt in giving me an estimate for their services and when moving day came they moved me quickly with the best of care. I will definitely use them again the next time I move.
