Von Sydow’s Moving & Storage Company Reviews

They were fantastic, I would recommend them in a heartbeat. Completely on time, quote was right on and very careful with everything. Courteous and professional at all times from beginning to end. Moved two houses for us on the same day.
- Tom Quinlan

These guys did an awesome job from start to finish. The crew that came in was very professional and personable. I would recommend using Von Sydow to anyone without hesitation.
- Albert Brasel

AWESOME! Words can't express how satisfied we were with Von Sydow. From the estimating process (which was spot on) to the crews that moved everything. We had a 2-day process due to closing dates, and our stuff stayed on the truck during that time. The guys did a GREAT job, really hustled, worked so hard, and were just nice guys. Having not moved in 15 years we were dreading the process, but Von Sydow made it easy. Highly recommend them!
- Linda Merkel

Great experience. The 3 men that helped me took a minimal amount of time moving the furniture and boxes and the man packing the POD was unbelievably good. A fully furnished 3 bedroom house (no appliances) fit in my 8x16 foot POD. It was like he played Tetris, and I had ordered 2 8x16 PODS concerned there would be too much!
- Nancy Nelson

I paid for and received three hours on hard work. We got a 53' trailer emptied and in my new house. Could not have done it without Von Sydow's help. Worth every penny.
- Buzz Wheeler

I have used Breda Moving, which is part of Von Sydow's Moving and storage twice for cross country moves. Both times I was impressed by the service and the price was fair too.
- Laura Fischer

Made our move very easy - 20K sq ft facility with offices and everything went very smoothly. I would happily use this company again.
- Podl Mark

Our decision to hire Von Sydow’s Moving was the right one. Although we did 98% of our own packing they provided boxes at incredibly low prices. I know this because I sold packaging and boxes before retiring and nothing came even close. And the boxes could be sold back as well. In addition, they provided crating services for our glass topped tables and large electronics within 48 hours of our move. The process was professional and fast and not a bit of damage was detected at the end of our move. Von Sydow’s even stored our goods in Illinois while we hunted and closed on our home in Arizona. This saved us money since we did not need to store our goods in Arizona had they shipped when we arrived here 2 months before we had a home to move into. They made it easy and we felt well cared for. Thank you Von Sydow’s for the superior handling of our move and the wonderful employees we encountered throughout the process. James and Kathleen McLin

I have used Von Sydow for two big moves the last four years. They were punctual, the team worked very hard and were great to work with, and made my moves and life transitions so much easier! And I didn’t have one thing broken! I give the highest recommendation to them!
- Jean Sophie

Love these guys. Were so responsive to my needs. Loaded everything in the garage and came back three days later to move it into the house after I had closed and taken possession. So helpful.
- Nancy Bartels

My son just moved from the suburbs to the city and needed help getting all his stuff downtown. The folks from Von Sydows were outstanding to work with! Jim is responsive and helpful with pricing and scheduling. The movers were right on time on a snowy day, very professional, and efficient. They took care in protecting our floors and walls, wrapping furniture and items for the truck, and were very pleasant and polite. Highly recommended regardless of the size of your move. This is our 3rd move with Von Sydows and they consistently perform! Thank you!
- Katherine Sawyer

Von Sydow's Moving & Storage is a class act. As someone with extensive knowledge of the industry, I can say with 100% confidence that Von Sydow's is among the very best in terms of management, customer service, and quality moving experiences for those it serves. I would recommend Von Sydow's to anyone and everyone for all moving needs. Not all movers are created equal; believe me, there are lots of movers out there that will leave you disappointed (or worse). Von Sydow's will leave you satisfied with a great price and even better service. We are so grateful to be able to work with them now and in the future!
- Timothy McGinty

I know Von Sydow's inside and out, as a service provider and as a client. You couldn't find a better company to deal with on either count. They take their obligations, whether to give quality service at a fair price, or to pay for services they receive, very seriously. I give them my highest recommendation.
- Rory McGinty

Moving is bad enough but these guys really made a stressful day reasonable. Joey, Justin and Matt were friendly and great to work with. Showed up early, we discussed the move, and they did their thing with zero hassles. Nothing broken or marked up walls. HIGHLY recommend this moving company.
- Rick Smith

Best decision ever to hire Von Sydow's. My move was a fairly small one. My parents had both passed and we were selling their house. I needed to move some extremely sentimental items from their home in Chicago to mine in San Diego. The first company I hired was beyond awful. Not only did they make me feel like I was a burden to them, they didn't show up (not once, but twice!). So I turned to Von Sydow's, who I originally did not think would handle a smaller move. From first contact, their service was exceptional. They were polite, helpful, professional . . . from beginning to end. Great communication and met every expectation. My precious cargo was delivered in a timely manner by two incredibly friendly and professional gentlemen. And everything was packed perfectly and arrived in great condition. Thank you, Von Sydow!
- KC Cunningham

I have used Von Sydow's moving multiple times and they have always done a great job. They made sure items were packed diligently and were careful when moving all of our boxes/furniture out of our house and to our next destination. I highly recommend using Von Sydow Moving and Storage. They are very efficient in their work!
- James Shockey

OUTSTANDING! Very professional, fast, clean, accommodating, I highly recommend.
- Jack Roback

From the first phone call to the end of move day, Von Sydow was wonderful. I got an appointment for an estimate very quickly. When Jim showed up, he was very professional, and kind. He wore a mask and stayed safe (didn't touch anything he didn't need to). He gave me an immediate estimate and was spot on with his estimate. He explained the whole process and how they're licensed and insured. I felt very comfortable hiring them. When the movers arrived (not only on time, but 10 minutes early), they took a tour of the house & asked a lot of questions so they knew exactly what we needed. They wrapped everything to make sure there were no scratches, breaks or damage of any kind. We have a tv stand that is on its last leg, we told them it will probably fall apart on the way, but they treated it like it was fine china and it survived the move. The guys were professional, polite and worked very hard. I was quite impressed. I would highly recommend Von Sydow.
- Sue Murray

I can't imagine recommending anyone more highly than the Von Sydow Moving company. From the sales end to the crew they were fantastic! They were prompt and moved our 3300 sqft. home unbelievably quickly and efficiently handling all of our belongings with care. All of the crew were skilled, courteous and friendly. The customer service was exceptional!
- mark bettcher

Von Sydows was great. The crew they sent worked very well together and made a stressful situation not a big deal. They wrapped and packed everything that needed to be loaded and then unwrapped and unpacked the same things. They made the load easy and the unload even easier. I would highly recommend Von Sydows in the future.
- S4racing14

I've used Von Sydow twice for moves into and out of Chicago. Above all I can't say enough about their professionalism and helpfulness in getting the move estimated and completed. Their estimates were pretty accurate, the moving team did a great job both times in caring for our things and making sure that our floors and walls remained in excellent condition. They were always helpful, asked the right questions, and kept up communication to get things done quickly and efficiently. I would plan on using them going forward.
- Seamus R

These movers from East Dundee, IL group were great! I moved a little over a week ago and they were the best movers I've had, and I've moved a variety of times in the Chicago area. Marcus, Miguel, Enrique did my move. They were a bit early but said they could wait, they were professional, nice guys, asked me questions to be sure on some items, listened to what I wanted, and they were quick. They were physically prepared to do the move, handled furniture and boxes well and moved quickly (not pokin around) to get the job done, with no damage, and placed things the way I requested. They all had good customer service. Great job and I would definitely use them again, and highly recommended. Thanks guys!.
- Linda Raney

We used Crown Relocation to move us from Chicago back to the UK. Von Sydow where the company sent to pack the contents of our home. We honestly couldn’t recommend them more highly. Tom, Bonito and Miguel truly were the A-Team!! They all worked so hard and went above and beyond to ensure our move was as easy as possible. For 3 days they always arrived on time, were contentious, friendly, professional and great to work with. Thank you to you all!
- Hayley Taylor

The crew they sent was amazing. They worked really well together. I had a few challenging moves I felt bad about because they were going to be tough, but the guys didn't shy away from the challenge. They took care of the place we moved out of as well as the house we moved into. I would highly recommend this company to anybody who wants to make their moving day as easy as possible.

The movers did a good job fitting our belongings in a very full truck. There were no surprises with regard to cost. We did incur a bit of damage to a few items, but all in all, we were very satisfied.
- Bob Imburgia

We purchased a new place and the seller used Von Sydow to move out. They ended up damaging the door frame on the day of our closing and unfortunately this ended up being our problem. Von Sydow promised the seller to fix this for free and we just had to schedule a time. I called Von Sydow on October 6th and spoke with Heidi about scheduling a day and time for their contractor (David Honquest) to come in. She told me the contractor would call me about scheduling. I didn't hear from the contractor within 3 days and decided to contact Heidi again. She apologized on his behalf and said she'll forward my information again. The contractor ended up calling a couple of days later and scheduled the repair 2 weeks out. The 2 weeks came, I took a half day off from work and waited for the contractor. He never showed up. I contacted Heidi again telling her this and she gave me his contact information to call him directly. I gave him a call, he told me he had a family emergency and called the previous owner to cancel. Ok, fine. We rescheduled for a week and a half later. It is now close to a month after I first contacted Von Sydow. The contractor arrives, starts filling the gap with putty (we wanted the right side of the frame replaced, but at this point we'll take any kind of fix). I bring the paint that the previous owner left that was used to paint the condo. They are both flat paints while the frame has a bit of gloss to it. I tell the contractor that they're both flat, but one of the paints is closer to the color of the frame than the other. He calls me color blind and proceeds to use the other paint which turns out to have a yellowish tint. He realizes his mistake and wipes the paint off. No apology was included. After using a semi-glossy white paint that he brought I notice he's leaving paint brush strokes while our frame is smooth. I tell him this and he assures me that the strokes will disappear when the paint dries (they didn't). After he's done painting, I took a step back to see how it looked and noticed that the putty wasn't cut straight and our frame now curves inward. I tell him this and he says he can't see it and that it looks perfect. But he's willing to sand it and re-paint. I ask him how he's supposed to sand it if he can't see the issue. He just shrugs. At this point, I see no point in continuing and ask him to leave. My wife contacts Heidi that day and shows her the job that the contractor did. She agrees that this is not an acceptable fix and says she will talk to the manager and contact us next business day. We don't hear from her (of course) and call back. She then tells us that the manager does not talk to customers and that they will not be doing anything to fix this issue. Overall, terrible moving company (I have used moving companies over half a dozen times and have never had any damage done to property) and even worse customer service.
