"This company is the best!!! My original moving company cancelled on me at the last minute. I called expert movers and they were ready and there in an hour!! Very efficient and professional! I can't say enough good things!! They saved me a lot of time and stress and made moving very easy! Will only use them from now on!"

"Mauro, Roman and Mario were absolutely amazing during our move. They showed up on time and we were mega panicked that we weren’t fully packed. They loaded our boxes that were ready, and fully took over packing of our remaining items for a reasonable fee. We went from insanely stressed to immediately feeling relaxed and well taken care of. Once they arrived at our new place, they took care to place the correct boxes in the correct rooms. They maintained the highest level of professionalism, keeping an upbeat candor as they worked on. These guys are seriously wonderful, we tipped them very well, and I recommend them to all of my clients and friends. They are the best."

"First time I've ever used a mover, and decided in January during COVID was the best time to get one. I went off of Yelp reviews, actually, and Expert Movers pulled me in for two reason: great price AND all communication was online. They were better than I could have ever expected. They were on time (I think even a minute early), were very nice, funny, and FAST. They were done with my one-bedroom apartment from River North to Roscoe Village in 2.5 hours. It was incredible. They also wore masks and were just really fantastic. I highly, highly recommend."

"Movers arrived on time with Masks. Did a walk through and told them what needs to go. They worked fast and got the truck loaded quickly. They also shrink wrapped the delicate items and nicely packed glass cabinets and TVs. Whole job finished about 1 hour less than quoted given their hard work, which saved us money as well. They were also kind enough to make a second stop to drop off a few items which we couldn't transport in our vehicles."

Jeffrey T.

"BEST MOVING COMPANY EVER. The entire process from start to finish was smooth and professional. You can request a quote online and once you book, you get an account page where you can see all the moving details and input the number/type of items you need moved. Their office will help you reserve street parking with the city as well. The week before, I received email reminders with the estimated time window of arrival. We had a 3 man moving crew which arrived very punctually and loaded/unloaded in 4 hours which was less than the initial 5-6.5 hour estimate. Note - having everything properly packed and organized will save you time/money! The movers also unassembled/reassembled heavy furniture like couches, beds, etc. The movers were helpful and friendly. Don't forget to tip your movers!! They deserve every penny."

Stacey C.

"Best moving experience we've ever had! Moving is never fun but these guys made life SO much easier. Perfect job all around. The pre-move contact was organized and coordinated. Then the day of was seamless. They showed up right on time. They were friendly and willing to go the extra mile to ensure all of our stuff was packed safely. They worked quickly and efficiently. Can't believe they can carry as much as they can. I never once worried about our stuff or their dedication. We compared prices of a number of companies up front, and they were very competitive. Will definitely use again if we move!"

Mike W.

"I had a great experience with Expert Movers. Omar and Alberto were amazing! They arrived on time and completed the move quickly despite having to deal with elevator troubles in my new building. Expert Movers has great COVID-19 protocols, which is something I was nervous about before booking movers. I chose Expert Movers because they had great reviews on Yelp and one of the few companies with their detailed COVID-19 protocols outlined on their website and booking platform. If you have a move coming up, I highly recommend Expert Movers! They will not disappoint."
