    MiniMoves Inc
    We got a quote from Minimoves to move some furniture and boxes from the Chicago area to Michigan. Quote was good ($1500) and everything sounded great. They were very friendly on the phone and seemed knowledgeable. Then, around 2 weeks before the move, we called to book the move. All of a sudden, it was difficult to talk with anyone. When I finally found out what was going on, they explained that our house in Michigan was further away (4.5 hours) that they had thought (even though we gave them the zip code in the beginning), and the quote was increased to $3500!! I bet you know what we thought of this. Now we are stuck without a mover and trying to figure out what to do. Thanks for your great service Minimoves.

    H2H Movers Inc
    The moving team was punctual, courteous, and very professional (they managed to park their truck in tricky places). I packed our books beforehand but requested packing service for everything else in our 2 bed, 2 bath apartment. The team was very efficient and finished packing in about an hour and a half. They took good care while moving the furniture, and basically all I had to do with stay out of their way. The team leader explained the estimate and the final charge clearly and carefully. And Val, who helped schedule and coordinate my move, was very responsive and helpful throughout. Last but not least, H2H's estimate was quite a lot cheaper than other estimates I've received, and I am happy with the service. Highly recommend!

    First Class Moving & Storage
    From start to finish, it couldn't have gone better. The moving team from First Class showed up right on time. They were respectful, personable and incredibly careful and efficient. They had the place packed up in no time. There were multiple stops to disperse furniture (to Goodwill, etc) which was no problem. The guys went above and beyond the call of duty in ways large and small for us and we were so grateful. Would use them again in a heartbeat!

    USA Moving & Storage Inc
    In terms of the front office staff, I preferred speaking with Ulysses who was very helpful before and after booking my move. I found the other person in the office not as friendly or helpful. I received 10 free small boxes for being an Angie's List customer. The boxes were not as sturdy as the ones I bought at Home Depot and had green stars all over them so labeling the boxes was a bit of a challenge. The team of four assigned to my move could not have been nicer or more conscientious. The move took longer than anticipated but I felt they were working hard the whole time. I ended up tipping each person $100. My move cost over $2000 when you add in the tip. What surprised me is that a blanket fee accounted for 33% of the moving cost. Half of that cost will be refunded when I move my items out of storage (using USA Moving of course); however, over $600 for blankets was something totally unexpected in this move. The other thing that I did not expect was the 3% fee tacked onto my moving expense because I used a card. They would not accept my check. I believe all quotes should explicitly mention the card fee as it can be significant. Long story short, I would use USA Moving again if I can work with Ulysses in the front office and have the team led by Jose Mora.

    Blankenship Movers Inc
    Generally it well very well. Crew of Fredo, Matt S., Louis R. and Martin worked very hard to pack and load in Evanston. Fredo and Matt drove the truck to Fort Worth and did the entire unload. They moved heavy pieces of furniture into the house, and cheerfully moved them into the rooms where we wanted them. Only minor hitch was that we did not do a thorough job of opening all kitchen drawers to ensure all wanted items were packed. We had planned on leaving several items in a number of rooms. But at the end of the day of packing and loading, we did not open every drawer to check. Consequently, a couple of desired items did not get packed. Importantly, though, all furniture, boxes, bikes, paintings and lamps arrived in excellent condition! Kudos to the crew!

    Blankenship Movers Inc
    The moving was done over 2 days. The first day consisted of moving certain items to a storage locker. And the second day consisted of moving the remaining materials to my new apartment. The 2 guys that came (Alfredo and Carlos) were tremendous. they did a great job moving my materials in an efficient and careful, yet brisk manner. Everything was wrapped well prior to the move to either location. Especially of note was how they moved my 55" LG OLED 4K TV. They didn't wrap it up in plastic wrapping. Instead they wrapped it up in blankets so as not to effect the screen in any way. Smart. And, it was done perfectly without incident. I would use Blankenship again in a heartbeat and I likely will.

    H2H Movers Inc
    H2H Movers Inc. is a fantastic company! We are so thankful we went with them. Dimitri and his 2 crew mates arrived at the exact agreed upon time and started working immediately. They were very professional and made sure everything was properly wrapped and secured before moving the items down the elevator to their truck. They finished the job in 1 hour. There was no dings, scratches or damage to any of the items. Even the price was less than the original estimate. Moving is stressful but H2H made it go as smoothly as possible. I highly recommend them to anyone and would certainly use them again.

    Arpin Van Lines - Wm Meyers Movers Inc
    I have to say that I���ve never experienced quite the level of poor service as I received from Wm. Meyers Movers. The movers were rude, careless, slow, and, in my opinion, unfit for the job. And, at least one of them was a thief. Immediately upon arriving (late), one of the movers said ���who���s brilliant idea was it to put us here today��� and made a motion of shooting himself in the head. This was the first of several snide remarks made throughout the day. They commented repeatedly about how much wine I had, stating once that I could just drink one of my ���hundred bottles of wine��� at the end of the day to get over the move. They asked me ���who needs this many coffee cups?��� While unpacking some boxes at the end of the day, one mover asked another where to put some items and the other said, ���just throw it on the floor ��� what do we care.��� I was also told it should be ���illegal��� for me to own my own massage chair. These are just some examples of the repeated snide and rude comments I experienced during the day. I understand that accidents happen in any job, but the list of items damaged, broken or lost during this one move is overwhelming. They totally destroyed one round end table, pulling the top and trim totally off the table and scraping the sides so badly that all of the finish and some of the wood was removed. And, this was just one of more than a dozen items damaged or broken. Each time something broke, the response from the crew was "I don't know how that happened" followed by some excuse for why it wasn't their fault. At least one of the four movers smoked. Two of them spent much of the day out of breath and complaining about the stairs. I was a little surprised that this particular crew was scheduled for a move from a third-floor walk-up. Perhaps a more physically fit crew would have been able to get closer to finishing the work I thought I was getting when I asked for a pack-move-unpack quote. I had to disinfect every surface they touched. They used almost no floor protection and tracked every bit of mud and debris from outside through my home. They also never washed their hands any time they used the bathroom. The icing on the proverbial cake was when, at the end of the day, my property fell out of the pocket of one of the movers. It was a fairly inconsequential item but his response is what startled me. He simply stated that he had taken it and he hoped I didn���t mind. He then shoved it back into his pocket. I, of course, have no way of knowing what else he (or any of the others) stole from me. And his laissez-faire attitude was more than I could stand. My daughter just paid less than one-third of what I paid to have her and her boyfriend���s belongings moved from a first-floor walk-up into a third-floor walk-up. She had one glass broken and no other damage. Her movers were pleasant, courteous and fast. I wish my experience with Wm. Meyers Movers could have been similar to hers.

    Breda Moving Company Inc
    Breda was excellent to work with for our move. The workers showed up on time and our stuff was delivered in Texas five days later. Russ came to our house for an in-home estimate and we paid exactly what we expected to pay for the move.

    H2H Movers Inc
    The guys actually called 2 hours earlier than we had scheduled and wanted to come early. That sounded great, they arrived and stared right to work. The guys never stop to take a break they stayed moving the whole time. One guy wrapped and prepared everything the other 2 carried it out. The guys had the truck loaded in 1 1/2 hours and drove straight to my storage unit and again worked without a break. Nothing was broken or scratched, we were completely satisfied.
