About Us

Melancon Moving And Freight Services is a family-owned and operated business, with over 21 years of experience, that provides moving labor services to load and/or unload your moving truck or POD. In addition, we also provide packing services, as well as pre and post-move cleaning of homes and apartments, for an extra charge. Our company services all of central Illinois, including; Decatur, Springfield, Bloomington-Normal, Champaign-Urbana, Lincoln, Clinton, Taylorville, and Mattoon. We look forward to providing you with a professional moving experience. Please Note: 1) We do charge an extra $25.00 per job/per location, for any flights of stairs past the second floor (unless there is an elevator that can be utilized). 2) Anything more than a 3-Man team requires a minimum of 72 hours notice. 3) We are unable to accept any job if we have not been able to make contact with the customer after two (2) attempts, in order to discuss the details of the move, even if our schedule is open for that particular date.

Doug and his crew are amazing. Their experience and knowledge really helped me sort my PODs. They are careful with all my belongings even when they are not labeled "fragile". Highly recommend!

Other than being over an hour late they did a great and professional job. They took great care of my things. Very friendly.

Mover's response:
I greatly appreciate the 5-Star review! It was a pleasure assisting you with your move. Yes.....As I explained to you when I phoned to explain that we were going to be late, sometimes the downside of hiring a single parent as an employee is they will have a babysitter that doesn't show up! Thank you for being understanding about the situation. I wish you all the best!

Melancon Moving is a family owned and operated company. They did a fabulous job. They wrapped my valuables with care. They packed the POD very securely and efficiently. Highly recommended!

Doug, his son & Cyrus were extremely pleasant & efficient. Even tho my Pod was a mess from me trying to pack it myself, they were able to straighten it out. Pack it properly, get the things in I couldn't do all in under the 2 hours alotted. They were very kind. I deffinetly will be using them when it comes time to unpack my Pod when I find a new place to live. Yes I most definitely will recommend them to anyone I know needing their services. Made my hectic day much pleasantries. Thank You Sincerely Dianna Bowman

Melacon was friendly, professional, honest, informative, and efficient. They treated all my things as if they were packing there own belongings. I would highly recommend their services to everyone!

(5) 8/14/2017 Springfield

They were amazing, dedicated, excessively careful, very professional, & at all times considerate & thoughtful in handling my belongings! They performed a 3-D spatial Jenga juggling act to not only perfectly balance & tie down the load, but also make every last item fit in the POD (a huge gift)! I couldn't be happier, & I highly recommend my team to anyone moving, near or far.

Father and son team, very kind and helpful! They, completed the job in less than 2 hours. They were very careful and thoughtful about loading my boxes in to my storage unit. I would definitely use Melancon Moving again! Thank you for all your help!!

Mover's response:
It was our pleasure to help you with your move. We wish you all the best in your future endeavors. Enjoy your time back home, before you have to relocate up north. Thank you for your business-it was greatly appreciated!
