EZ Movers Naperville
EZ Movers just moved us for the second time (we used them on our previous move 10 years ago), and once again, I couldn't be happier with the work. The guys were a pleasure to work with, and even came on the early side in anticipation of the extremely hot day we had today. They worked quickly and were willing to move things around as we needed them. I'd highly recommend EZ Movers to anyone looking to move. Randy, Anthony, Alex, and Gabriel are the best! They also sent someone out to do an estimate free of charge, which was really nice. I got multiple estimates for this move and these guys were the best.

Olympia Moving and Storage
I employed Olympia Moving and Storage since I was going from the suburbs to town after they were referred by a co-worker to me. The encounter was amazing! The team lead called me to I want to understand the transfer went off without a hitch and he was first part of the morning.

Great moving expereince with these guys. The movers were on time and did not waste any time. They were careful to not damage anything and the move was kept within my budget
Tips & Advices
Yes, it’s best to empty drawers, wardrobes and chests before a move. Items always get knocked around a bit, and doors can fly open even if they’ve been taped. In fact, more often than not, movers will want to remove the drawers from a dresser--or disassemble the wardrobe to be more space-efficient.
Yes, it is customary to tip movers, but the amount varies widely. For full-service moves, a 5 percent tip is suggested, although, for extra service, some people go up to 10 percent . For small local movers, you can give each mover $10 for a few-hour job, or $20-$40 for jobs that take longer.
A bill of lading is the legal contract for the move. It provides a detailed receipt, in addition to a contract between the client and the mover. It authorizes the mover to transport the goods from one specific point to another, and it outlines the exact scope of services, with cost breakdown for those services. It also provides an itemized list of the inventory, and carrier liability protection for each declared item. Finally, it specifies the payment arrangement. Make sure to go over your itemized list extremely carefully before finalizing the paperwork--and get a copy of the full document. A good mover will go over everything on the bill of lading with the customer.
There are several items that moving companies will not move – those items will be listed on a document as “non-allowables.” These items typically fall in three categories: perishables, sentimental/personal items, and hazardous material. Perishables are food and plants. Sentimental/personal value is up to the client to decide, but usually includes jewelry, medical and dental records, personal paperwork, valuables and collectibles. Hazardous material is the tricky category, since it includes a lot of everyday items found in the garage, garden or kitchen. For example, cleaning liquids and pesticides both are considered non-allowable by many companies. Some go so far as to disallow nail polish and batteries.
A binding estimate means that the moving company cannot charge more than the stated amount, though they can lower the final bill if the scope of the job was smaller than expected. A non-binding moving estimate is more likely to wind up costing more than expected, since the movers can increase their rates for unforeseen variables like stairs, “long carry” and materials.
