Really great, professional and efficient. They confirmed a few times before my move date and were in constant contact day of the move!

Mover's response:
Thank you Shivani. You are very kind to help us keep our reviews up. We will keep doing our best to accommodate all of our clients. Take good care, and let us know if you ever want professional movers.

Movers were 3 hours late for the appointment. There were some nicks and wall scuffs on some of the wooden furniture. Would probably not use them again. Gave them a 2 and not a 1 because it was hot outside and they worked hard.

Mover's response:
Sorry we were late. We should not have taken this job.

They were not on time, (like an hour and a half late), but what a pleasant experience once they arrived. Both Alton & Joe were fun to work with! They got the job done and I love my new bedroom furniture. They were more anal about cleaning it than I was! In the future, I will make sure that I am dealing with a more local company, and you obviously don't screen correctly for this. I said I was in Elgin, but these poor folks were driving from the south side of Chicago. Makes no sense.

Mover's response:
Hi Cheryl! Thank you so very much for taking the time to leave us a review. It really helps us to improve our service and show other potential clients our worth. Please excuse the miscommunication on the start time. They were on for 9am, but when you asked us to come at 11, I told the crew not to rush. You texted me at 11:45 to tell me they were 45 minutes late. I apologize they were actually "like an hour and a half late". We will be sure to prioritize our commnication and punctuality. As for distance we are all 1 to 2 hours away from our chosen service area. The commute doesn't affect our punctuality, and we always make sure the crew is paid extra for longer than average commute times. The travel fee always goes to the crew commuting to the job site. Its hard work which calls for a very good wage. Our crew is our company. We hope you enjoy your new place. And thanks for the work! Be healthy, and warmest regards from Alton Joe and all of us at Community Movers Sincerely Aaron Owens

Such hard workers. Knew what they were doing. I would ask them, again, if I need them!

Mover's response:
It was our pleasure. Any time, and thank you for the generous review. We appreciate those who help instead of hurt our chances at getting more work. We do try our best although life throws obstacles sometimes.

Get To Know Us

What can a customer expect after booking with you?

Our potential customer can expect good prompt communication to confirm appointment time date and location, gather information on what to expect. We will also provide any answers to help the client be prepared.

What can a customer expect on moving day if they hire you?

Our clients can expect us to be safe efficient and systematic in our approach to executing the endeavor swiftly. We will show, do a walkthrough so everyone knows the details, and workers can be assigned an area of focus. Then we will prepare by disassembling if needed and wrap the furniture and matteresses while the boxes are being removed by a crew member(s) to fit as much in a load as possible, and give us room to maneuver. We will keep the pace showing fast results taking special care.

How should a customer prepare for moving day?

I suggest letting use do the full pack and move for the easiest and most seamless and worry free move where we guarantee all we do. Or for a budget move, a good preparation would be to have everything packed and labled well. Having everything disassembling and beds wrapped saves a little time too. Packing correctly makes things faster and items safer from damage. We always work swiftly with purpose and direction.

What types of moves have you handled?

We've done loca,l long distance, commercial and residential moves more times to count. No task is considered too mundane, small, or too large and complicated for us to handle. From trash and debris, to antiques and fine art, boxes and plants, to pianos and appliances; we are fit for any task. We will personally work with you from start to finish without complications. We ensure your needs are met with the highest quality service, patience, and knowledge in the industry.

What's your favorite part about being a mover?

My favorite part of being a moving specialist is creating order from chaos. To make something that seemed impossibly hard and tiring smooth and swiftly executed with safety and ease. Most importantly without unnecessary damage.

What training do you provide your crew members?

We do mock up jobs when we have personal stuff to move, warehouse and storage work, and sometimes in the field. We use the same formula that's been implemented by all the top experienced movers in the industry. We teach how to wrap prep consolidate pack china and other specifics, use humpstraps, move pianos. We show new guys YouTube videos also. There's a right way to do it all, and if this formula is repeated the same every time, then no time is wasted and very important, no claims.
