Were prompt in responding to our interest in their services - this is the second time we've used them. The movers were slightly early, which was good. The foreman was thorough and fast in reviewing the contents of the apartment. The team of 3 was speedy with loading and unloading the truck. Nothing was damaged during the move. They were quick, careful, and punctual.

Arrived on time, friendly and professional. I was not moving everything so had to be specific as to what to leave behind.
They took great care in wrapping my antique furniture. Move went extremely smooth. Nothing damaged, nothing lost.
I like that there are no extra charges for packing materials or tape. Price was reasonable. It took 4 men 5 hours to move a 2 bedroom condo to a first floor flat.

The movers damaged a $3,000.00 table, broke an $800.00 art piece, scratched a solid mahogany bar and broke a good deal of items within packed boxes.
Chicago Movers Provider Name Locked
did not repair the table with any kind of acceptable process and have left me with a repair that will cost at least $900.00. When speaking with the owner of the company regarding all of the damage, so much belligerent attitude and unprofessional language and behavior was used I was shocked. I would never ever recommend or use this company again. stay away from this company unless you want broken and damaged possessions.

The
Chicago Movers Provider Name Locked
team was simply wonderful. The crew was right on time, fast and professional throughout; I needed to be moved first thing in the morning, and their team exceeded my expectations. Nothing was damaged, and the crew even beat me to my new apartment they were so fast. I sincerely appreciated their help, and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a great team of movers in the Chicago area.

Please be warned about this company. They are very nice on the phone when you call to inquire about moving services. However, the actual move went terrible. They misplaced/lost/stole our 42 inch flat screen tv. The tv never made it to our new home. After calls were made by us to the moving company we received no help. Double check all those boxes in the back of their moving truck as that is where we believe they misplaced the tv. And a new wreath we had purchased for the front door. Also they fail to tell you the price of the furniture wrap is extra at $95 per roll. Let's just say they were very generous with the wrapping and I later found a half used roll in our place that we were fully charged for. Moving is stressful...make it easy and DO NOT USE

Chicago Movers Provider Name Locked
was extremely responsive as the scope of our job got bigger and smaller until we finalized the details. He was very flexible in working something out that worked well for us and scheduling. We had furniture moved out of one large home to another. It required a lot of stairs and maneuvering and attention to detail.

guys were early, super careful, took the extra steps to make sure everything was wrapped right and done the safest way. They were also very flexible on site and helpful in figuring out last minute logistics. Call these guys first.

My overall review is that your experience will ultimately depend on the crew you get and whether
Chicago Movers Provider Name Locked
is at full staffing capacity. We had two very different experiences with a recent move. We had one crew who we'd rate an A and another crew that would rate a D or F, which explains our overall C rating.
The sales person I spoke with when getting a quote was extremely helpful. He walked me through each room in my home to get as close to an itemized list as possible for our estimate. Our situation was unique as we need temporary storage and were moving back to the same place and
Chicago Movers Provider Name Locked
provided a very reasonable price for the whole process that ended up being right on target.
The day of our first move, we were given an estimated arrival time of 9-11 am. At 10:45, dispatch called to tell us that our crew had a move that "blew up" and would arrive between 12-2 and would call us when they were 30 minutes out. While not thrilled, we understand that this can happen. However, by 2 pm, we saw no sign of the crew and had no calls. At that point, I started call
Chicago Movers Provider Name Locked
, only to be on hold for nearly 45 minutes while the message said I was the first caller in line. At 2:45, the crew rang our bell and when I said we had expected a call, they told us that they had been told dispatch would call but also hadn't been able to connect with anyone at the office. Our contract said we'd have a crew of three, but only two were available that day. The team staged all of our boxes outside behind the building and the started wrapping our furniture. They were thorough, but extremely slow. One crew member periodically went out the truck and returned 10-15 minutes later, leaving the crew leader alone. There just seemed to be no game plan and the slow process was one thing, but about 4 hours into it, dark clouds rolled in and it started raining. We shouted to the crew that the boxes were being rained on and the crew leader ran out and started running boxes to the truck and we followed suit. The other team member stayed inside and continued wrapping while our belongings were rained on. The crew leader did what he could to minimize the rain exposure but the lack of team response was odd. In the end, it took 7+ hours to pack up our tiny 2 bedroom condo and we were left concerned that our items would be wet and in storage for 10 days. We had planned to finish cleaning out our unit after the movers left, but at 10 pm it was too late for that. Fortunately, this was a Saturday so we had Sunday to finish up before our contractors came on Monday, but it was a major inconvenience.
For the return move, we were given an 8 am start time and the crew arrived at 11:30. Fortunately, 3 men arrived as planned and they were efficient and professional and completed the job in under 3 hours. When we unpacked the wardrobe boxes that were packed by the first crew, we found our clothing crumpled at the bottom of the boxes and many had some sort of dirt/dust residue on them. Perhaps this is just the price of moving, but after our experience it was just another issue to deal with and an additional dry cleaning bill. When we called to report our first experience, we were told that
Chicago Movers Provider Name Locked
was short-staffed and that was the reason for our small crew. We may have been more understanding if we were informed of this change by dispatch or customer service and told to expect a longer process and/or had been able to reach anyone at the office during the delays.

When I called,
Chicago Movers Provider Name Locked
at their office was very clear in explaining all their prices and services. She also called back to check if we wanted our set time, which was nice that she was on top of it. For my taste, she could have sounded friendlier on the phone but it doesn't really matter so much because she was helpful with everything and worked any kinks out for us.
The actual movers,
Chicago Movers Provider Name Locked
and the other two helping him (sorry I did not manage to get their names) were very professional from the time they made their first calls. They spoke politely and professionally and did everything to get the crates where they needed to be. This was not easy as one of them was over 800 lbs! It was very nice how quickly and cleanly they got the job done. I was very happy with them and would definitely call them again.
They were willing to take on this job when some other movers did not want to deal with the couple of extra steps involved. Also, they were able to give us a quick date and everything was as they said it would be. No surprises.

I called
Chicago Movers Provider Name Locked
to get a price quote on a move. They answered right away. Instead of discussing the details of the move and what I owned to get a quote, they told me to e-mail them a list. I did exactly that, and they never contacted me back with a quote. I obviously won't be using their services.

We had an overall good experience with
Chicago Movers Provider Name Locked
. The office staff were great to work with in the lead up to the move -- quick to respond and friendly on the phone. We selected
Chicago Movers Provider Name Locked
because its pricing was competitive, it offered overnight retention (up to 5 nights, though we only needed 1 for $100/night), it had good reviews, and it offered free use of the wardrobe boxes.
Chicago Movers Provider Name Locked
delivered on its promises and our move cost almost exactly the amount quoted to us.
While we had a good experience, we would likely try to use Move-tastic (as we have in the past) if we were to move again. (We decided to go with
Chicago Movers Provider Name Locked
over Move-tastic this time around because their estimate was a bit less and they seemed to have more experience with overnight retention, which we needed). Where we felt there was some room for improvement for
Chicago Movers Provider Name Locked
was the efficiency of the move itself (my husband occassionally noticed half-full dollies or rides up/down the elevator) and their ability to quickly put back together the furniture they they had efficiently taken apart the day before. Again, the move was good, just not great. We have enthusiastically recommended Move-tastic to friends in the past, but I'm not sure we'd be as enthusiastic in our recommendation of
