You don't run across many honest companies like this. I called for a quote, left a message and they called me back within the hour. I spoke to the owner (Ed) and he was quite apologetic at not being able to handle my move given the size of my home. He also provided names of reputable companies (his competitors) that he felt could handle the job well. This will be the company I call if I have a sma...

Do NOT use Windy City Movers. We paid them nearly 1k in July for a 5 hour move. They broke two light covers in our new building hallway. Our neighbor’s Timberland boots were taken (it’s a three flat so they were under a bench outside his door). One of our boxes never made it to our new places that had our Alexa in it. We, and our neighbor, called the company regarding the boots (we didn’t even men...

The move from condo to storage went relatively smoothly, though it took twice as long as they'd estimated. The move from storage to house took nearly three times as long as expected...it took so long for them to load the truck from the storage unit I finally sent a neighbor to check on them, and she found them sitting in the truck taking a break. The crew was slow moving that day, didn't have the ...

Very good. It was $124 an hour for three men, $124 charge for truck fee, $30.00 charge for packing an LED tv. They were right on time. Came at nine, were very professional. I would highly recommended. Three workers, and the boss, ED, he actually came, and made sure they did an good job. He actually prepped the tv, and the glass table. He was the boss, and made sure the workers did it well. The wor...
