They didn't use any straps to verify items are secured. I'm worried my TV may be crushed during the moving process. They didn't ask if I had straps, which I did.

I had a terrific experience with MOVEMASTERS. They loaded a 12' foot PODS container from my 11th story apartment with speed, care, and expertise. If I need help moving in Chicago again, I will without a doubt use MOVEMASTERS.

The fellas showed up on time, worked steadily for the entire two hours, and were respectful of my property. It was a terrible day to be doing a third-story walk-up move, and I was impressed with their ethic.

Tony and Greg were amazing!!!
They were on time, and ready to get the job done.
They went above and beyond. ..They were so patience with us and extra careful with my parents items and wrapped everything to neatly. Not to mention their many years of moving experience and their loading expertise! Everything fit wonderfully in place. They worked up to last second and helped us out tremendously with many other items from the basement. Two great guys who we would use again and would recommend to others. Thank you for answering your phone on a Sunday!!!
We would of hugged goodbye but the virus made us keep our distance. Thank you so much for such a pleasurable experience because as you know moving is hard.
