S&L were referred by PODS to us. I specifically asked hireahelper.com if they know how to move pianos, I was told yes. But the guys still ended up damaging the wood floor! They didn't use a proper dolly, they don't have any tools (screw driver, etc). I still don't know if the piano was not damaged as we haven't unloaded the c…Read Moreontainer yet.
The first impression was not a good one--they were 45 minutes late and we had unloaded about 1/3 of pod while waiting for them. They were both friendly--one was extremely lazy and kept resting the furniture pieces on it's back legs. Clearly was not taught the proper way to move items. They did not have any tools with them to dis…Read Moreassemble a bed frame. I would have to say I would not ever recommend them to anyone or use again. They were there for 4 hours as it was proposed.
I have nothing but great things to say about these guys. They took a level of care that I was not expecting and was deeply appreciated. I would recommend these guys to anyone looking for a good mover, they fit more in a 16 foot box truck (securely and safely) than I thought possible.
Not only were S & L Moving on time, they were prepared and did the job with 100% effort. They were kind, curteous, and engaged in the task at hand. Excellent movers. Would move again and again if they were at the helm! (Lol, I hate moving!!!!!)
Excellent communication prior to coming out and movers were outstanding! They packed our portable storage unit perfectly and got way more into it then we thought would fit.

I highly recommend them and would definitely use them again!
Amazing work. They arrived on time and finished super fast. I was hoping not to have to request more than one additional hour but they finished in under the standard two hours! Very respectful of our belongings and our building, and very accommodating of our special instructions. We would definitely use S&L again and highly reco…Read Moremmend them. Thanks, guys!
40 minutes late. Went to wrong address. Smelled like weed when they finally got there. Took the drawers out of a small dresser them the two of them picked it up to take downstairs. My wife (5'2) took the dresser from the 2 of them, brought it down by herself. Can't recommend, wouldn't hire again.
Chris and Darius were on time, prepared to get to work, professional and courteous. These guys worked hard the entire time! They got so much done yet were very careful with everyrhing. I will definitely be using them again.
Workers were about 1/2 hour late. Indicated they were detained due to their previous assignment. They were extremely hard workers although training on how to load a truck would be recommended. Workers were friendly and courteous. When unpacking we had many items fall on us due how items were stacked and put in the truck. We d…Read Moreepended on their knowledge which there wasnt a whole lot. We also had several items knicked, scratched, and cracked due to how it was packed in the truck. I would question experience if I was to use them again.
They were on time (actually even a little early), very prepared, knew what they were doing, and knocked out the job in about an hour for our three bedroom house. It was quite fast! They were very efficient and careful with our stuff. I would absolutely use them again!
We had to ship some stuff that we did not get on the truck. When we were unloading we found a couple places where we could have possibly had it loaded there. But it could have been that we did not have the boxes ready to be loaded . All in all the 2 guys you sent did a great job loading things where they did not move the entire …Read Moretrip to Texas from Chicago.
The two helpers were very professional and were impressive in their understanding of the logistics of packing my POD. They worked hard and were respectful of our property. I would definitely recommend them. I hope I can get them to load my other PODs when I need to. Thank you!
The movers were very polite and helpful moving all our furniture back in the house after our floors were refinished. They worked really well with my husband, always asked him where items should be placed and were very respectful of our items and worked really hard. They were about an hour late, but called to let us know their …Read MoreETA.
Punctual, professional, paid attention to detail, and was nothing but pleased with the entire ordeal. I hired this company four years ago and was satisfied then and am completely satisfied again! Chris took the lead and was awesome! Look no further!
The guys were early and ready to go. They worked very hard on a very hot and humid day. They were very careful with the items to pack and packed them well in the container. I was hoping to get the same guys to unpack the container when it moves this Monday.
If I could give them more stars I would . I couldnt recommend these guys more. Trent , Daris and Daris were booked for 3 hours and got it done in under 2 . They loaded my truck perfectly for my trip out of state . They were professional and respectful . I've used multiple movers over the years and without a doubt this was the be…Read Morest experience I've ever had. Thank you guys for taking the stress out of this part of an out of state move .
I had hired 3 helpers for four hours to help load moving trucks. Two of the helper arrived and went to work right away and were incredible. The third helper was much later (nearly 1.5 to 2hrs late) and they all still left at the 4 hour mark.....so not quite 3 helpers for 4 full hours. They were all very polite and extremely…Read More hard working though.
Terrence and Damian did a wonderful job of working the entire time and moving all our furniture out. They did not arrive on time, but I received two phone calls telling me their location and the approximate time they would arrive. I very much appreciated this and understand that Chicago traffic can be unpredictable. They had …Read Moreall the tools needed in their vehicle, worked very hard, and were extremely respectful to me and my daughters. They treated all our furniture with care and had some great suggestions as to how to move certain pieces of furniture. Even though they were hot and tired they were still smiling at the end of the job and asking me what else they could do to help. I hope I get the same crew when I have to move my furniture again. Well done!
Never in a million years would I think that packing a truck would be so seamless with expertise. They knew exactly what box needed to go where to fill every cubic any inch. They never took a break they had such energy and very polite highly recommend them
The guys did a great job! They showed up on time in the middle of the afternoon heat; I had them for 2 hours and they finished up right at the 2 hour mark. It was a last minute arrangement and they worked their tails off and got the job done. They were respectful of the property and goods and I would use them again and recomm…Read Moreend them to others.
Had a wonderful experience with S&L. The two gentleman were efficient, professional, and very polite. They were able to move the entirety of my 1-bedroom apartment into the rental truck in less than an hour and a half. They were promptly on time and worked diligently the entire time even in the 95 degree heat. They were respectf…Read Moreul to me as well as when handling my things. I would highly recommend them!
The 2 guys got to my house to pack my pod they called to let me know when they would be there. They worked hard and filled the pod. They were incredible the way the went from room to room knowing exactly how to maneuver the furniture in. I can’t wait for them to unpack.
They were on time, I don’t think they were prepared for the job of heavy lifting, dropping an armoire- damaging it and the wood floor. Damaged our couch dragging it against the door. They were polite. No I would not use them again- 3 of the 4 guys were inexperienced- the leader really knew his stuff but the others lacked in stre…Read Morength. Belongings get damaged in a move - I get it, but the items dropped or damaged were not reviewed at job completion- compared to others I used in hire a helper I would not use these guys again.
The three gentlemen who packed our two Pods were absolutely wonderful. Hard working, friendly, cooperative, quick, efficient, professional and kind. Their great work and positive attitudes definitely reduced my stress. Thank you so much!!! God bless you!
The men worked very efficiently as a team (2 of them). Over the phone when booking, I was told a 16ft pod usually takes 3 hrs to load, but they didn’t go a minute over 2 hours and it was very tightly packed. Great work. We’ve also moved a lot and have never seen a company show greater care for our things.
These men worked very hard to be efficient with our load. We didn’t have many boxes or “easy shapes” to pack, but they made all the awkwardly shaped things fit really well. We have moved many times and they noticeably showed greater care for our belongings than any movers we’ve had.
These guys were AWESOME!!! We are requesting them again in two weeks to move us into our new home. Hard working doesn’t do them justice. I’ve never seen anything like it. They worked awesome together and really took care of our belongings. Highly highly recommend!! Awesome personalities! Thanks again Dameon, Ricky, Mills …Read More& Damien!
It was a 100 degree day and they worked in the sweltering heat to get the job done on time. There were a lot of odds and ends which should have made it challenging to get the items placed but they made it work. They were rockstars.
The (2) guys who came out were on time and worked very hard. They did have trouble getting our couches out of the basement and scraped a good portion of the wall and the couches in the process. Can't ascertain the damage on the couch until we get it out of the U-Box storage. Both were extremely polite and worked non-stop on a VE…Read MoreRY hot day!
These guys did a wonderful job! They were on time. Polite. Didn’t ding/scratch anything. Packed the truck very carefully. Wrapped and used padding. Would recommend them and use them again. They are a family business and great!
The workers were on time and did a phenomenal job. However I had booked for 4 hours of work and the workers finished in 2 hours. Since there was no prorated time I wanted the workers to fill the remaining time moving items to prepare for the next pod. At which point I was told they had called it in and were scheduled for anot…Read Moreher job. That aspect of service was a disappointment. If the companies policy is not to refund or credit unused time, then the workers should have been working for me until the time up.
PODS makes it clear on its website that furniture and heavy objects are to be tied to the sides of the POD with rope. I bought THREE different types of rope for the crew to use and asked them SEVERAL TIMES to secure my furniture in the POD, but they REFUSED. One of the crew members asked in a condescending way if I was a moving …Read Moreprofessional. I had also bought a moving blanket for a large wicker chair and asked the crew to wrap the chair before bringing it downstairs to load. But when the chair was put in the POD, the moving blanket was still sitting on the chair seat. The crew was unhappy at my request to take the chair out of the POD and wrap it in the blanket, and then gave me a hard time about securing the blanket with stretch wrap, which I also provided. The crew was in SUCH A HURRY to finish the job -- it only took them an hour even though I had pre-paid for two hours -- that the POD was loaded in a VERY slapdash manner with a bicycle thrown sideways on the top. Disaster in the making! Sure enough, when the POD arrived at my destination, a heavy piece of furniture had fallen forward onto a box, smashing it completely. Nope, I'd never, ever, ever use them again.
This is the second time I've gone with S&L Express Moving Services, and I cannot say how happy I am with their service. They're professional, courteous, and hard working. They were able to load up my truck and unload it at my new place with time to spare. My new condo doesn't have an elevator, but the two movers did not comp…Read Morelain once about having to go up three flights of stairs with my stuff. They kept a positive attitude the entire time. If I move again, I will 100% use this company.
Trent and Daris arrived on time and they did a great job. They worked so hard to fit everything into the POD. No rope was needed because they had it packed so tightly. They were careful not to break anything. I would definitely use S & L again.
I hired 2 workers for 4 hours. They arrived on time and reviewed what I needed them to do. They worked very hard and asked intelligent questions if they weren't sure what was expected of them. They did an excellent job - very respectful of my possessions. I would definitely use them again!

Dominican, Dominic we're fantastic couldn't ask for a better helpers would recommend them for any moving job. We're polite courteous and did not want us to really help. They felt it was their job to move everything two great guys would work with them again.
We checked the reviews for picking a company to do our packing. S in L got such good reviews we decided to use them. They were right on time and did amazing job. I keep wondering how they were going to get all my furniture in that pod. They packed it perfect. The two guys what constantly for the two hours and completed the jo…Read Moreb. Very pleased with them and would definitely use their services again .
The two guys who helped us load our POD were great! I really appreciated their professionalism and the fact that they were so thorough and efficient at loading my family’s belongings. I’d definitely use S&L Moving Services again
Previous experiences with this company were great, but this one was not. We booked two movers for four hours, as previously it took two movers three hours to complete our move; however, the entire move took seven hours. I’m not sure why that was the case; it’s possible we should have booked more movers. The movers had a good att…Read Moreitude about what was most certainly a difficult and demanding move; however, they were a little careless with our goods and the move. We clearly marked boxes with the room they should go to and explained it to them, but many items went to the wrong room, which has been a process to sort things out. In addition, the movers damaged the walls of the apartment we moved out of, and we have filed a claim with hireahelper.com
Daris and Dominique were professional, courteous, hard working and smart in their approach to my move. They patiently answered my questions and explained why they packed the POD the way they did. I highly recommend S&L Express Moving. From the initial outreach right thru to the day of move, they were prompt, responsive and help…Read Moreful.
I used them to pack up my pods and had absolutely no issues, I used them today to unpack the pods and it was a nightmare.

I will be calling to complain , would be nice to compensate for the damages.
I had to file a claim for damaged furniture. The corner of my dining table was shattered and paint scuffs from the wall on the side of my bedroom furniture. They were on time, but not prepared. They did not have the disassembly and assembly tools needed even though I had requested and called ahead and asked if they'd be provided…Read More. They needed direction and guidance on how to move and I did not feel my property and goods were taken care of. We were tight on time and took longer than expected considering I was moving within the same apartment complex. Not everything was able to be completed before the 2 hour time mark. I noticed damages after they had left. I had higher expectations based on all the other positive reviews and would not use again.Show Response
Your claim was resolved and you received $129.99. No company is immune from damages, mistakes happen and the corner of the table was the only thing damaged, this is what insurance is for. AND you did NOT have any equipment listed on your order. If you needed additional equipment, it would have been ordered and added to your order at an additional charge. Tools, Dollies, etc are all additional charges and was NOT on your order. If its not on our order when we are dispatched out, we don't go to the warehouse to get them. Please review your invoice.

These two gentlemen were amazing! They were on time, introduced themselves in a professional yet friendly manner and were all about business. They asked me to review my expectations, then walked through the house discussing what they would move and what I could be doing to prepare for moving the lesser items (boxes I was still p…Read Moreacking). When I didn't finish, they pitched in and helped never complaining. They were fast, strong, carrying several boxes (a lot of books) down the stairs at a time, handing everything as if it were their own. They never goofed off and worked hard the entire time. I also appreciated the reminder they gave me when I was fast approaching the end of my time (because they knew I wanted to stay within my limitations). I was amazed when they finished packing my POD. They used every bit of space making everything fit. Amazing...simply amazing. Yes, I will use them again and I have already told my sister to use them when we do her house next. Thank you for providing access to such outstanding young men.
Home renovation project is thisclose to starting. I have been working hard to prepare for contractors coming. Needed help getting heavy furniture and boxes out of the way.
