This organization and it's representatives were great to work with. They were quick with giving a quote to the move - fast to react when I had questions - and brilliant at catching up to affirm the arrangement.
The genuine moving group was the best I've ever experienced. A 3 man group moved a 2 bed loft in Wicker Park to a top floor 2 bed flat in Uptown in under 2 hours. It was stunning. Nothing was broken - they were watchful with each bit of furniture and even wrapped things (I didn't think to wrap our sofa!) for us for no additional charge.
I would prescribe this organization to anybody that likes a straightforward move with persevering representatives that take care of business.
If you need a great moving company go with this one. The guys are honest, hardworking and personable. I had 2 households to move into 1 home. They worked with me to be sure that we got everything including outdoor items. They were efficient - going the extra mile when I asked to have additional items loaded onto the truck since there was room. Everything arrived in great shape. The week of the move was the hottest temperature in 6 years but no complaints from them! I had asked for quotes from Elite and another "national" company. Elite called back in 1 day - the other company finally got back to me after we had moved. If you are looking for a moving company that you can trust - this is it! Price was more than fair. We bought them pizza and had ice water on hand because we were grateful for their hard work. If you need them to pack extra items they come prepared for that as well. I am not one to write reviews but this time I wanted to. Bottom line - great company - great workers!!!!!
