This family business's which is the only people I deal with. Was on time, prepared, and went above and beyond what they needed to do. Tipping the guys always goes a super long way. Thanks you Chris for taking care of me and moving my things to pure perfection. Von Sydow went from A to Z. It thought that they were on the high end , but it saved me so much money doing it right the first time. Nothing messed up. You pay for performance.
Moving from the north subburbs into the city, Van Sydow's moving and storage was a great help. They made sure to get us everything we needed and moved all of our furniture into the house in a timely manner. I thought that it was excellent that we were able to communicate directly to the head hancho when it was necessary and he did everything possible to ensure that we were satisfied. I highly recommend using this company.
Von Sydow's Moving & Storage just moved my family and I from Inverness, IL to New Port Beach, CA. I have nothing but good things to say about the move. They gave me a way better deal than all of the other quotes that I had received. Their employees are super hard working people, arrived on time, made sure everything was put where I wanted it, and overall most accommodating. The communication with the office staff was superb, even with my last minute date changes. I read some negative reviews posted on the internet about Von Sydow's, but I know even in my job that I am not perfect, and I was willing to give them an opportunity to redeem themselves, and THEY DID! I will tell any friends and family to use Von Sydow's for SURE!!
My wife and I have moved multiple times for corporate re-locations. We have used most of the major long-haul moving companies, some multiple times, and we have never had a bad move. (Some may express doubt, but that is absolute truth.) In fact, an owner-operator who handled our move in 2006 is still a friend. As is the case in corporate re-location, our prior movers were all employer-selected and employer-paid. This move was to our Georgia retirement home, paid for by us.
I approached three local agents of respected long-haul moving companies and chose Von Sydow, an agent for Wheaton Van Lines, as well as for Wheaton's other long-haul brand, Bekins Van Lines. Representatives of all three of the agents provided comprehensive, competitive estimates, and I suspect we would have been pleased with any of the three. My choice of Von Sydow was initially made due to the responsiveness and personality of Von Sydow salesperson, Jim Schwantz, and that choice was subsequently validated by numerous Von Sydow employees and contractors. I had the estimate in-hand within hours, and as soon as I accepted the estimate, Judy was immediately in touch from the Von Sydow office to thank me and say that she would be coordinating our move. Judy was helpful, pleasant, and responsive from start to finish.
Von Sydow's own crew of Tom and Benito did our full-pack. We have had many good packers and these guys are two of the best. Hard-working. Pleasant. Punctual. And, they did the best job of carton-marking ever. (We had cartons destined for our new home and cartons destined for storage. Tom and Benito added clear contents descriptions and carton destinations -- "house" vs "storage" -- to every carton. BIG help.!)
The loading-transportation-unloading portion of long haul moves is always handled by contractors. Generally, your driver owns and operates the truck; or, sometimes works for someone who might own a few trucks. Anyhow, your crew for these critical functions of the move is, essentially, one or more small business owners working in concert. We got the crew of Jim Hill, and they were great. Real pros with tons of experience. They did all of the necessary protection of the residences at both ends including laying down runners and cardboard to protect floors, and padding banisters, corners and railings. The loading was tight. (I know this as I actually worked in the household goods industry for a time when I was MUCH younger.) Their practices were safe. The crew was 100% friendly, pleasant, and respectful. We had no damage and no loss.
A quick mention of our co-drivers, Jimmy and Anthony. They're cousins, originally from NY, and now residing in FL when not on the road. Professional, pleasant, personable, willing, hard-working, and funny. Simply top-notch!
Not only did our crew get our goods safely to GA, they did it on-time, (in fact, Jimmy and Anthony are always on "Lombardi Time"), with a great attitude, and a smile. Even if one has moved as often as my wife and I, moving is stressful. In every way that they could, our Von Sydow folks reduced stress, and that's a key component to an excellent move.
We say, "Thanks", and we recommend.
Best service from the time you book through the time you move. Your moving crew has quality on their mind and understands first-rate service.
