Super nice, super fast. Vance and his guy did a great job helping me move. They were very careful not to damage the walls, floor and the things they were carrying.They are also familiar with the layouts of the major residential buildings in Hyde Park as well, which helped things go smoothly. If I need to move again I'll give them a call.

Wanted to make sure my good experience was reflected on Yelp, and it appears that the good experiences are nearly unanimous. Very fast, very efficient, very careful. Easy to schedule and friendly. Appears to be black-owned, which is nice.I called the week before, and they were able to schedule me on the day I wanted. Minimum service is two movers for two hours at $210, plus tip. They were twenty minutes early, which was fine, but I'd have felt bad had I not been in my apartment.Cash-only is irritating, but the manager let the last $10 slide when I only withdrew ten twenties from the ATM. That's very good business. I'm very satisfied.

Terrible. Just terrible. Use another more reputable company if you know what's good for you. This is your intuition speaking! I had a 2-part move. Hired these guys after reading all of the glowing reviews here on Yelp. What a NIGHTMARE my move turned out to be. The 1st part of my move was from one location to a storage facility. Vance and his worker showed up on time (in fact, they were early, which was nice). They came in and moved quickly to get my items onto the truck. When it came to my bed, Vance suggested that it be dismantled for ease of transport. Since the bed is so easy to assemble, I did not mind, so I said ok. Vance dismantled the bed himself; I watched him as I was moving about here and there in the apt. They moved the rest of my items onto the truck and even offered to give me a lift to the destination, which I obliged. On the way to the destination Vance had to stop for gas. He asked that I pay the cashier $20 of the fee he was charging (I thought this was pretty unprofessional, frankly, but whatever). I paid the cashier and we were back on our way. We get to the destination and the guys quickly unload my items and get them situated in the storage unit. We go our separate ways - the plan being for them to perform part 2 of the move the following weekend. I was so happy with the speed with which they worked that I left a $50 tip and a glowing review here on Yelp. My granny always told me: "never count your chickens before they hatch," and that was precisely what I was doing in leaving a big tip and glowing review on Yelp before ever seeing the move through to completion. Fast fw to pt 2 of the move. Oh what a difference a day makes. I text Vance a few days later to lock in the date and time for pt 2. He seemed a little shifty about his availability. He claimed that he was booked up, but that he could possibly do it later in the afternoon that coming Saturday, if no other moving company could. He suggested I call around to find someone else. I looked and eventually found someone else. The new moving company seemed a little shaky, but it was my only option. I booked them. Later the next day Vance calls and says that he had a cancellation and can complete pt 2 of my move after all. I book with Vance and cancel with the other company. Day of the move, pt 2. Vance is already there ready to roll. I let them in and they commence loading up. They got everything onto the truck just as quickly as the last time. We all load up into the truck and head off for the final destination. We get to there (a 3rd floor apt) and discover that there is a bed that needs to be moved to the basement. Vance and his worker move the bed without complaint, which was super sweet of them. The worker gets my bed into the apt and commences assembling the bed. They finish up and the worker jets. This time I left a $65 tip, bc again, everything seems fine from appearances, and they moved quickly. We say our ta-ta's.Fast fw to later that afternoon. I get back and unpack; I am POOPED. I sat down on my bed and it sunk in immediately and slid across the floor a little. Wait, what? This is a BRAND NEW bed I purchased in October; how in TF is it sunken in? It was perfectly fine prior to the move. Now I'm afraid (bc it's a platform bed) that the wooden slats holding the mattress might give in. I lift the mattress off the bed. I discover immediately that the bed was SLAPPED together in the most haphazard way. There were screws popping out (SOME WEREN'T EVEN SCREWED IN, JUST PLACED ATOP THE HOLE); the slats that were screwed in were laid crookedly, the metal hardware for the headboard was now bent out of shape, and there were unsightly tears in the fabric. I'm pissed. I commence the task of unscrewing the slats so that I can lay them correctly. THAT'S WHEN I DISCOVERED MY BED WAS NOT BEING SUPPORTED BY THE SUPPORT LEGS THAT GO WITH IT!!!I text Vance. He calls me. I tell him what has happened and he says "oh, I never EVER saw any support legs with that bed." Wait, I beg your pardon? Mind you, it was VANCE who dismantled the bed at the first location; I watched him with my own 2 eyes! Nooooowww it's all starting to make sense-that must be why he wanted me to find another moving company; he probably figured- if another moving company moved me and setup my bed, I'd probably think it was them that lost the support legs and not Vance and his team. SMFH. He then starts saying he'll look into it with his worker and call me back. He gets back claiming the worker has no idea either. That Monday he calls me while I'm at work with some sob story. I'm now frustrated and annoyed af, and I make that clear. He begins YELLING and hung up in my face. WTF?! He subsequently agrees to order them online and bring them to my job later in the week. An entire week sleeping on the couch. Get home and guess what? The screws are the wrong size. I ended up contacting the manuf. and paying for 6 new legs + expedited shipping. WHAT A NIGHTMARE. A NIGHTMARE

Vance and his crew moved me out of my apartment in January. We ran into trouble with the truck that caused a day delay but they still managed to get me all moved in time. Great business at a fair price. Highly recommend.
