Let me start by saying I am a solo parent to a special needs 4yo. I work full time and also have 2 inactive small home businesses. This simply means that I have a TON of stuff, much much more than the average 2 person family and I have much less time than the average person. I dropped my child off at his daily therapies and rushed back home to find the moving guys at least 30 minutes earlier than anticipated (which is a good thing!) but I was so rushed in general because I hadn't quite finished packing so I was not in a very good mood and ended up being abrasive and snippy during the initial walk-through. Lucky for me I had an amazing crew that must be used to the craziness and stress of people moving, and they not only helped me pack up some items but they were very courteous, professional, and fast. They moved me from a severely crammed basement 2 bedroom apartment into a 2nd floor 3 bedroom condo 10 miles away. The truck was jam packed, seriously not another item could fit into it. They hauled everything out and up one set of stairs from the basement and then again up 3 sets of stairs into the new place. When we were finished, I seriously couldn't have thanked them enough - they turned my stressful situation into a successful move and did it with a smile. My crew was Victor #2, Alfredo H and Abenamar G - and I would HIGHLY recommend them and hire them without a second thought the next time I move.

The Professionals Moving Specialists Reviews - 509
I've never used a moving company before because I've relied on friends/friends of friends to help me move. Luckily, my former apartments were mostly on the first floor so my "movers" didn't have to lug my stuff that far. A friend who moved a few months ago talked about how she used The Professionals to help with her move. She raved about how the movers were great at their job and she recommended I use them if I were to move. Backed by her statement, I decided to use The Professionals for my recent move. The movers that were assigned to me were heaven sent. Modesto, Erik and Eduardo were so awesome in getting the move done as quickly and efficiently as possible. They came on time and also called ahead to let me know what time to expect them. I was VERY impressed at how quick they were in loading boxes and furniture on to the truck. I got most of my packing done but there were a few items that I didn't get around to. To say I was stressed and overwhelmed is an understatement. But Modesto, the head mover assured me that it's going to be alright and they will do all they can to help me. To get that kind of assurance helped to ease my mind. I moved to a third floor and the movers didn't even scratch my furniture or break anything. They also have great work ethic considering it's no mean feat to carry my furniture all the way to the third floor sans elevator. The Professionals are very lucky to have these three fine gentlemen to work for them. Every company needs a Modesto, Erik and Eduardo in their employ. They are great at their job and should definitely be commended for it. I've already told everyone I know about my wonderful experience using The Professionals. Thanks again Modesto, Erik and Eduardo. I know it was your job to help me with my move. But in my opinion, you went above and beyond your duties to make sure I have a smooth transition. And that was all very much appreciated. I will definitely use The Professionals again and ask for the same crew.
Move was scheduled for 8am - 10am. Carlos called me at 7:10 am to let me know he and Hugo were out front and ready when I was ready, acknowledging they were early. We got started by 7:30. They worked together like a well oiled machine. I had done most of the wrapping but Carlos pointed out he had concerns on my glass entertainment shelf and asked permission to re-wrap.
Carlos also broke down my bed frame and although that took him some time, we still made the move and unloading into storage within the 2 hr time frame. The end cost for the move was LESS than what was quoted.
This is the second time I have used Professionals and I cannot see myself ever using another moving company.
My move experience was a lot less stressful because of Carlos and Hugo. A big thank you to both of them.
Our experience with your company exceeded expectations. Modesto, Erik, and Carlos G worked together beautifully. They handled our possessions with great care and respect. They worked tirelessly and completed the move well under the estimated time. I strongly recommend The Professional Inc to anyone considering a move in the Chicago area.
I heard about The Professionals from several friends who've had good experiences with them and they didn't disappoint. I moved from a 3rd floor unit with no elevator, to another 3rd floor unit with no elevator and a difficult back entry to move things into. Even on a very hot day they were still able to move all my stuff in a timely manner and efficiently. They were very polite and made sure to ask where I wanted things when they unloaded the truck. I would definitely use them again and recommend them to anyone I know who is moving.
We moved from the far north neighborhoods to downtown without issue. The main office was great with communicating everything. The guys were prompt, courteous, fast, and professional. Word of mouth didn't fail us and will happily keep the message moving to others
The Professionals are hands down the best moving company in the greater Chicago area. I had a really short period of time to schedule a move and after getting multiple quotes from other companies, they came in at the lowest price with exceptional customer service. I was pleased that they were able to schedule the move perfectly within my required timeframe and on the day of the move they called to let me know they were early, but if I wasn't ready it would be no problem because they could wait.
Gabriel was the head mover that helped me and was very professional, polite, and accommodating. He kept me at ease and made the whole experience very seamless! The whole team was great and I was shocked at how quickly they got the job done. It was no surprise to me that they came in UNDER BUDGET!
I love The Professionals, they are truly professionals!!
I moved from a 3rd floor walk up condo to a single family home and the movers were quick, so careful with my stuff, and honest. There were no surprise charges and everything went so smoothly. I recommended them to my brother when he got married and moved into a new place with his fiance; they had a great experience as well!
I used these guys yesterday. They came right on time (8 AM) and were LIGHTNING fast and efficient. I didn't even have to give instructions - they knew exactly how to do it. Made my move smooth and painless. If I were moving again I would definitely use them again.
For the second time in twelve months, The Professionals did the job right. Good communication from the office, a prompt and expedient crew, and a willingness to follow a multitude of (sometimes confusing) client directions! Worth every dime.
