HOMEOWNER REVIEWS SELECTED FROM SURVEYS COLLECTED:

“It's always great with Hunt the Mover and the boss.”

“The job was a quick few items moved from the nursing home for my dad, they did a wonderful job.”

“They were on time, they worked right along, there was no lag. Everyone was careful with the furniture and the things that we had to move. I would grade them an A+. I would recommend them.”

“They did a really good job, they were quick, and everything was right where it was supposed to be.”

“I liked that they showed up on time and didn't damage stuff. I'd give them an A.”

“I had no complaints with them.”

“Hunt the Mover was great. I've used them a couple of times. They're fantastic. Everything was excellent. They did what they were supposed to do, and they were very thorough and professional. They're the best, and I'd refer them.”

“They were awesome—A+. They were really nice and on time. We had to do a move to a different state, and they were at the new house before we were. It was really awesome.”

“Everything was excellent. They were great. They were fast and friendly and got everything done. I've recommended them.”

“I had a very good experience. They are very good people. I've had two different moves with them in the last month, and they do a very fine job. They moved several rooms to another state and some stuff to the western suburbs for me. I recommend them all the time to anybody I know that's moving.”

“I would say they were pretty good—quite exceptional in a lot of ways. I have no complaints.”

“I give them high ratings on everything.”

“They've moved me three or four times recently, so I've been all over the place. This last move was to get a couple things that I'd left behind. I'd grade them an A+. I have already recommended them.”

“They earned an A+. I liked their employees.”

“That was a while ago. I'm trying to remember it, it way over a year ago. I'd say an A+ is fine. I really don't recall one hundred percent, but if I'm not complaining, so that means everything went fine.”

“I think it was an A+. I felt like they took care of our antique furniture in particular.”

“It's been a year. I should say A. They are very friendly and they did a good job. I have no complaints. The only thing, I'd been missing some kind of a frame thing. I don't know if that was taken down or if it got lost. Otherwise, they would probably inform me. I am missing a big picture of a puzzle that was put together by my husband. It's a train that's all glued in and it meant a lot to me, but I can't find it. I don't know if it has gotten lost in the moving, but that's OK. That's all. They would probably inform me if that were not taken down when they were transporting my things.”

“I grade them an A. We're planning a move next year and we're going to use them again. I called, we made appointments, and they did everything they could to schedule the move when I needed it. They were there when they said they'd be there. The last time we used them, they kept the stuff overnight and delivered it the next day. The time before that, we used them to bring all the stuff down from a three- or four-story walk-up of my daughter's and put it in our moving truck. It turned out everything wouldn't fit, and the guy was like, 'OK, no problem. Just put it on our truck and we'll follow you where you're going and unload it.' They were great.”

“They were great. I would give everything an A. They were very professional and got it done timely.”

“I grade them an A. They were fast and responsible. They moved a whole apartment.”

“I'd grade them an A. They did a good job.”

“I'd grade them an A. They were very helpful, clean, and neat about everything.”

“It's been awhile. This was when one of my girlfriends moved and I was helping her with that. It was positive. They were very quick, thorough, and I was surprised how quickly we got finished. Their time matched what the estimate of cost was, so we didn't go over—we were very appreciative of that. They were friendly and there was nothing broken. It was a good experience; I would definitely recommend them. I have no complaints.”

“We used them three times. The first time was excellent, the second time was average, and the third—it depends on the crew, and the last two times were both excellent too. They're hard workers, and I felt that they cared about the job they did. They didn't waste time like a lot of movers do. They worked very quickly and efficiently. I don't really remember a whole lot about the office people. I know I didn't have any problems. I usually have to leave messages, and they got back to me pretty quickly. We went through a lot of movers, and I can name about a half a dozen of them. We were running out of people to call, so it was a random choice. That first time left a really good impression. I'd give them an A-.”

“I'd love to give them a great recommendation. I'd give them an A.”

“They were wonderful. I liked everything. They were punctual. They did all of our packing. They did a great job, and then they moved us and did a great job moving us into our new house. We only moved five blocks away, but that didn't matter. We had a whole house full of things. We were treated very nice. We have no complaints. We've used them several times, and we would definitely call them again if we ever needed to. We've lived in Bensenville all our lives, and they've been in Bensenville a good share of the time. It's just an old company here in town. It'd be an A. They did a great job.”

“They were excellent. They're very dependable. They took a lot of care with the furnishings. They moved our belongings in, in the middle of a snowstorm. They really went above and beyond what you would think. The workmen were very professional and very personable. I enjoyed having them work for us. I would recommend them to anyone. I heard about them through our realtor. I'd give Hunt the Mover an A, definitely.”

“I used them a couple of times. I moved twice in a year, and they were both difficult moves. We have very big furniture and a piano to move, there are stairs, we moved in and out of a condo, and it's very difficult to move in and out of this building. They had to go through a garage, up an elevator, through a hallway—it was a very difficult move, and they just did an outstanding job. Both moves we used them for went smoothly. Both moves actually ended up taking longer than we thought. We had more furniture both times, than we thought we actually had. They worked hard. They started on time, and they worked continuously until they finished the job. The movers are just guys with really strong backs who know how to move furniture. My concern was not only moving the furniture, but I wanted to make sure nobody got hurt. I told them that. I said pianos are important, but I helped them with the piano a little bit. I said, 'Don't hurt yourself with any of these things.' I appreciate how difficult it was moving some of our big furniture, and they just did a very fine job. They always use safe rules. I can't over exaggerate how difficult it was moving in and out of that condo building. It was just very difficult. I'd give them an A.”

“They were very efficient and very careful with my furniture. It was a move across town. It was the same town but on the other side. People in the office, I believe were fine, but the movers themselves were pretty good. I chose them because they were located in Bensenville, and I wanted to keep the business in Bensenville. I would give them an A.”

“They were just good. They were very nice. I'd give them an A.”

“They moved me a lot of times. I've used them at least six times. I've never had any damage. I've never had any problems with any of the guys that he sends. I've always gotten the dates that I needed. He's done big jobs for me, little jobs. Usually I just talk to the owner and the movers—they're all crazy, a crazy sense of humor. My husband went to school with Hunt. I'd give them an A. I've never had a problem.”

“They were careful in moving things. They were just very easy to work with. They came out and did what they were supposed to do. I've used them like three different times. This last time was a move, northern suburbs to more western suburbs of Chicago. They were just very friendly. In fact, I remember they gave me their ideas of where things should go. I appreciated that. The very first move I did was for my mother, and she was moving to Bensenville in a kind of like retirement home. Their residents do a lot of business with Hunt the Mover—that's why we chose them. I'd give them an A.”

“They're professional and neat. They were courteous. It was overall a good experience. I've used them in the past. The customer service was good. I'd give them an A.”

“I've had them for years, off and on. I haven't had them for a little while since the last time I had them, but I've had them for years, and they're very, very good, very able, and just polite. I just can't say the nicest things. I know they did a move maybe a couple years ago, I forget now when exactly, and then before that, they did several. But they're very good, polite, and nice—very happy to have them, and I would call them again. I would say they get an A. They were very good.”

“They were prompt. They came in on time. They met their budget. The whole thing was, from start to stop, in a day. It was probably as painless of a move as you can ask for. We moved about 35 miles. The move went smoothly. They were very friendly, courteous, they're very knowledgeable, and they answered all my questions. I chose them because they moved me once in college, in 1974. They did a good job then too. I'd give them an A.”

“They were fine. We used them three different times and even for my other family members who moved to a new home, and they were fine. I would use them again. I hope I'm done moving, but if I had to move again, I certainly would call them. I would most certainly give them an A or a B.”

“Hunt moved us back in April. They did everything they said they would do. We had other moving experiences before, and it wasn't what was offered; it was always additional hidden fees. Hunt did not have that. They were on time, and they were courteous and very professional. They did everything they offered. The move was good, very good. Everything was in one piece, no damages. Their customer service were willing to come out, and we weren't real close to where their office was, but they offered to come out and meet us at our time, what was convenient for us. They worked around our schedule. I'd give them an A.”

“They did what they were supposed to do. They were on time. Everything was done neatly, and it was done the way it should've been. Everything was pretty good. I chose them because they were from the town I live in. They were kind of locally known. I'd give them an A.”

“They were accurate. When they tell you, they're there. They're professional, what else can I say? Everything went great. I heard about them from a friend of mine. I'd give them an A.”

“They were just really friendly. They helped out with everything. Everything was fairly quick, in the way they told me it was going to be. It was about a 25-minute drive from the city to like a west suburb. Their customer service was good. I just set up, they told me everything that I needed to expect, and I got everything I expected. They were just recommended to me from family. I would give them an A.”

“Their people were polite. They did their job well, and everything was as they said it would be in terms of cost and time and so on. I've used them before. I've been using them for years, and I probably chose them just because they're local. I'd give them an A.”

“Hunt the Mover was absolutely wonderful. The guys they sent were perfect and fantastic. It was great, and it went very smoothly. Everything was just perfect—I couldn't believe it. They get an A for everything.”

“I've always used Hunt the Mover, and they are phenomenal and very professional. They're very careful with your furniture, they do the job quickly and efficiently, and they're very conscientious of your needs and concerns. Moving day is stressful, so to have that kind of service is awesome. I'd rate them as excellent.”

“They did a fabulous job. They were very courteous, on time, very respectful of our property, and very attentive. We moved things out of our main floor into a pod for about two weeks because we were having our floors refinished, and then they put everything back. It was a pleasure working with them. I'd give them an A+.”

“Hunt the Mover did a nice job. Nothing broke, and they were on time. They earned an A+ grade.”

“Hunt the Mover was quick and efficient. I would give them an A+ rating.”

“Hunt the Mover moved my house. They did a good job, and nothing was broken or anything like that. I chose the company because they were in the area. I'd grade them as an A+.”

“I moved from one house to another house. They were very friendly, very efficient, and great to work with. They came out and looked at everything to see how much it would cost to move it, and the estimate was basically right on, time-wise and everything—I actually got credited a little bit of refund. Everything was done well, nothing was broken, and everything was good. I'd used them 11 years ago when I moved into the house that I just moved from. They did a great job then, so I went back to them. They deserve an A+ grade.”

“It was a house move, and Hunt the Mover moved our furniture well. I think they were referred to us. I would rate them as an A+ company.”

“They did one little job for me. They had to move one thing and bring another one back. They did a good job, and everything was fine. The people were friendly, and they did their job. I would say earned an A+ because I had no complaints or troubles at all.”

“Hunt the Mover was good—we worked everything out well.”

“Hunt the Mover moved my son. It was a good move. I would grade them as an A.”

“I used them for a move back in 2010, and they did a great job. The guys were really polite and very careful with all of my stuff. They did everything I could've expected for movers. I would give them an A.”

“Hunt the Mover was great. I remember it was a positive experience.”

“The guys were good. They didn't break anything, and they showed up on time. Little extra things popped up, and they handled them—they didn't balk or not do anything. It was totally fine. They were a referral. I'd rate them as an A.”

“Hunt the Mover was fine.”

“We got the proper result. It was almost 98 percent. They had good service. They're an A.”

“The customer service was very good, and anything that we asked them to do was done. We had to leave our furniture on a van for an extra two weeks, and they were very accommodating. I found them through someone who had used them before. They should get an A.”

“I moved twice in a month. Hunt the Mover is the only moving company I've ever used. I used them about two and a half years ago as well. Moving is probably the least pleasant thing you can possibly have to do, but they did a good job. They were on time, courteous, and careful. I called around to a couple of different companies, and I had a good experience when I called them the first time. They were responsive. I was familiar with them, so I decided to use them again. I'd give them an A.”

“I've used them twice, and I've had no problems with them. The guys were very nice. They showed up, and they were pretty efficient, and they really didn't cause any damage to hallways or anything like that—when you want someone to move your furniture, that's what you want. The one thing that did happen was that there were glass panes in one of my good china cabinets, and they broke, but Hunt the Mover replaced them. I got them from a reference; my cousin used them, and she said she liked them. I'd grade them as an A.”

“My family used them 46 years ago to move from one place to another, and I used them 22 years ago. In the last three years, we've used them four times between my sister and me. I did have some furniture that got damaged in this last move; however, they're taking care of it, so it's fine. They've earned an A.”

“I had a step-by-step move—I had to go from my house to somebody else's house to pick up some other furniture, then drop off some furniture, and then go to somebody else's house. Somebody suggested Hunt the Mover. They were on time, and they were very nice and careful. I'd give them an A.”

“Hunt the Mover moved furniture and a piano, and they were great. First, I liked that it was in time. Secondly, they worked very hard. They were very nice, very careful, and detailed. I would say that they are an A.”

“We bought a different house a couple hours away, so they moved us. The guys were very nice and very careful with the things. If things needed to go downstairs, they took them downstairs. I started by calling them, and they were so nice on the. Then, the salesman came out to give an estimate, and I went with them. I'd give them an A—definitely.”

“I used Hunt the Mover. Nothing was lost or damaged, so I would use them again.”

“They moved us from a home to another place of residence. They did the job. There were no problems, the cost was what they had quoted, and there were no surprises. It was smooth. They were the only ones that would quote my small job; nobody else wanted to have anything to do with it. They deserve an A.”

“I was impressed with Hunt the Mover. I have a lot of very heavy furniture, and they handled it very well. I went from a large place down to a small apartment, so it was not easy to navigate the big pieces of furniture, but they were fabulous. Nothing was damaged, and I appreciated the gentleness and care that they used because I have some antique furniture. I have nothing but good things to say about them—they did a fabulous job.”

“Hunt the Mover is perfect. I've used them several times over the last ten years. I know other people who have used them, and everybody says they're fantastic. Nothing gets broken, nothing gets ruined, and they're efficient and on time. They're an A+.”

“Hunt the Mover was respectful of all our things, and we had no damage to anything. The move couldn't have gone better. They deserve an A+. They did a great job.”

“I used Hunt the Mover five years ago when I moved, and they did an excellent job, so that was why I had them again when I moved this past May, and again, they did a very good job. When they came, they got right down to business. I don't think the gentleman took a break at all, and they kept right on working without a pause. They handled my furniture with care. I think they're a very good moving company. I would give them an A+.”

“Their people are always extremely polite and work fast. I've had no issues with them. I'm extremely happy, and I would never consider using anyone else. They've done all my residential moves—out of houses and then out of condos. They've done all different kinds of moves for me because I move a lot. I'd give them an A+.”

“They were very friendly, kept everything organized, and were on schedule. Everything was done perfectly, so I would give them an A.”

“The movers themselves were very good. They were very experienced, and they knew what they were doing. We'd used them before on another move, and it was the same story, so there was absolutely no reason not to go back to them. I would say that they are an A+.”

“I used them twice, and they were consistent both times—attentive to details, courteous, and on time. They did a whole-house move, and I got them from a family referral. They get an A+ from me.”

“Hunt the Mover did what they told me they would do, they were on time, they didn't break anything, and they were great. They're very good. They've moved me four times, and they've moved probably four of our relatives, so through the years, they've been great. I'd give them top scores. They're an A+. I think they're great.”

“They did their job. They were on time, neat, and courteous, and they didn't break anything. They were about everything you would want in a mover. A friend of mine first told me about them when we were looking for movers to move our daughters back home from school, and then I used them again to move my daughter to another college. I would give them an A.”

“They showed up on time, they did a good job, and we didn't have any damage to anything that was moved. The guys were professional and nice. I went through a whole interview process, and I had about five or six different quotes, but I went with them. I selected them over any others, and I would give them an A.”

“I had a very positive experience with Hunt the Mover. They were fast, and they did a great job. I would give them an A.”

“They were very nice. First of all, when I talked to them on the phone when I was getting different quotes and different prices, they were very pleasant. Then, when the gentlemen came to my house, they seemed to know what they were doing. Someone else I know used them and also had a positive experience. I would give them an A.”
