- John and Matt

“We've experienced several moving horror stories first-hand, so we were skeptical when we contacted EMS and Mike promised everything would be fine. Everyone makes big promises, but EMS actually met and exceeded all expectations. They arrived early, worked quickly and professionally, packed our fragile items even better than we could have, and were courteous, professional, and flawless throughout the entire process.”
-Donna & Roger L, Highland Park
“Fanstastic customer service! We were amazed at the ease and technical proficiency of the EMS crew as they hoisted a good portion of our furniture through a very unique 2nd floor layout of our duplex. We highly recommend EMS for your next move.”
-Donald & Erika K, Chicago
“We had to move our goods across country. Since this is not something we do with any regularity, naturally we were a bit nervous. After talking with Mike from EMS, he eased our concerns and made us feel confident in using their services to safely move our goods. The entire team was awesome. They communicated with us throughout the entire process and always with a smile. The moving crew was great. Thanks EMS!”
-Sara P & Mark W, Madison, WI.

“For over 25 years I have restored antique furniture with some pieces literally being priceless. I regularly restore furniture that can be 100 or more years old and I can only trust the best movers to handle my restored work. I was fortunate enough to find Mike and EMS many years ago. The highest endorsement I can give is that I entrust EMS exclusively to pick-up and redeliver my final pieces and so should you.”
-Jean-Jacque Bernard Furniture Restoration, Lake Bluff
“We are originally from California in Chicago for med school. We're living in the dorms our first two years and when summer came, we needed a place to store our belongings. Door to Door Storage suggested using EMS and EMS has been one of the best suggestions ever.

Four of us med students stored our goods together in one storage unit. Mike was very friendly, flexible, and easy to deal with. He not only complied with our nitty gritty details and somewhat complicated situation, but also provided extremely affordable services. One of our roommates needed to get her stuff early from storage—and with EMS it was no problem. In fact, they sorted and pulled her goods so that she didn't have to go through the whole storage container to retrieve just her stuff. Also, they take a picture of your loaded storage containers for you after they've delivered your goods to the actual storage site so you can rest assure that all your belongings are safe and sound. Talk about service!

The EMS crew was always on time, efficient, and friendly. They could have given us college girls a hard time because of our excessive loads of goods to store for the summer, but they didn't even blink an eye. Moving is one of the things we dread most but with EMS, it was simple and easy. We'd definitely recommend them for any sort of moving or storage job.”

-Vivian D & Annie W, Chicago
“We have used EMS multiple times to date. We had to store our goods for a while in-between homes. The crew has always been extremely efficient with no issues. It’s hard to believe, but I actually enjoyed my moving experiences. My best friend used them after us and was just as thrilled with EMS. We will definitely use them again.”
-Ann K, Aurora
“EMS is a wonderful company. I shipped my goods from Philadelphia to Chicago. Being a student moving to town, I was feeling somewhat overwhelmed and EMS made my transition as smooth as silk. I needed to coordinate multiple dates and multiple stops and they were more than happy to accommodate. The movers were friendly and handled my goods quickly, safely & with care. I highly recommend their services!”
-Samantha H, Philadelphia-Chicago

-Andrea E, Chicago
“We had our goods shipped into Chicago and EMS redelivered all of our goods to Indiana. I communicated with Mike on numerous occasions checking on the status of our containers as well as changing our redelivery dates. Mike couldn’t have been more helpful and easy to work with. The crew was so great with the handling of our goods. We couldn’t be more satisfied.”
-Karen & Robert W, Anderson, Indiana

We looked no further than EMS .They are always responsive, high-quality, & cost effective. Not only was I satisfied as a real-estate broker, but also as a direct customer. I have personally used EMS numerous times and have always been very pleased with their exceptional service. I refer Mike and his crew to all of my agents and clients. I encourage you to do the same.”

“EMS made moving and storing my stuff extremely easy. They provided all the information I needed in advance, and when they arrived, they got all my goods wrapped up and out the door in practically no time at all. I am uncertain about my plans a few months out. I may be moving to another state and really liked the flexible storage options as well as the ability to have my storage containers shipped anywhere in the country. I would highly recommend EMS to anyone in Chicago looking for moving and storage services.
-Hannah W, Chicago
“The entire EMS staff was extremely helpful and very professional. Our goods were shipped to Chicago from another state and they arrived earlier than scheduled. Our redelivery was set up for the following week and Mike and the crew at EMS were able to rework their schedule and fit us in to the afternoon slot of the following day of our goods arrival. Now that’s high-end customer service! The moving crew was efficient, careful, and overall impressive. We would highly recommend EMS to anyone in need of moving services.”
-Michael & Vanessa S, SF-Chicago
“We had a 2-day layover in-between property closings. EMS carefully prepped and loaded all of my belongings and brought them to storage for 2 days and then redelivered everything without any incidents. Our closing ran long and they still redelivered our goods late afternoon. They were also extremely careful with our new hard wood floors. Plain and simple, the crew was outstanding. Thanks for the well done job.”
-Ben L, Winnetka
“EMS was great! They are professional, quick, friendly & affordable.”
-Kate K, Chicago
“Last year, my family moved out of our home after over 20 years. We had to make two moves because our new home wasn’t ready. We worked with Mike at EMS on the storage into secure containers and the delivery dates for the second move. Every step went as smooth as silk. All of our possessions arrived at the new house promptly and safely, from the 100 yr old sewing table to the holiday decorations, and everything in between. I continue to recommend the EMS Team to everyone I know. Thanks again guys!”
-Pat F, Des Plaines
“Being in business myself, I service 1000’s of home buyers and realtors annually and expect the same superior service I provide my clients. …and that’s why I’ve personally hired EMS 5 times to date. You guys are truly the best Chicago movers period. My entire staff recommends you to EVERY client we service!"
-Jeff Kaplan, President, Household Inspection Team, Chicago

“My girlfriend recommended Mike and the guys and said what a great job they did for her. Well I can now say first-hand, she was right! They are courteous, prompt, hard-working and exceptional in every facet. I highly recommend EMS to all of my friends and family.”
-Cindy W, Aurora
“I called Mike at EMS and told him I needed to load all my goods into a rental truck as my wife and I are retiring down south. He reviewed my inventory and directed me with what size truck I would need as well as what type of truck would be the most efficient on fuel and packing space for my specific load. He even went as far as to check out pricing and even figure out fuel costs. Few provide that type of customer service in this day and age. The quote was right on, the crew was terrific, and it was great way to start my retirement. These guys truly are a special group.”
-Dwight & Dorothy N, Chicago-Arkansas
“What can I say about Mike and EMS... My move from Chicago to Denver was occurring at a critical time in my life with so many things happening at once. I was completing a degree, saying goodbyes to many friends, and filled with the weird combination of anxiety and anticipation that comes with a new start. Plus, there was a very specific window of time to make the move before returning back to my where I grew up in Philadelphia for Christmas. With all the variables, schedules, pick-up and drop-off dates, and unpredictable weather, I needed to know that the physical move would go smoothly, that my belongings would be taken care of, and that someone would be on top of things should the unexpected arise. I can say without any hesitation whatsoever, that every single person I encountered associated with my move treated me with professionalism and warmth. The consistency with which things were followed-up on was tremendously comforting. It was made abundantly clear that if any problems arose, anything at all, someone would be available and willing to problem-solve until the issue was resolved. Thank you all sincerely for getting the next part of my life off to such a great start.”
-Alec M., Chicago-Denver

They have fantastic customer-service and are an excellent value. Thanks for making my moving day so easy.”
-Krista L, Chicago
“I am shipping my “life” across country leaving good old Chicago behind for at least a while. EMS prepped all of my goods for shipping and proceeded to load them into mobile containers for my move. They told me that they could fit approximately 40% more goods safely into a container than an average person. It’s not cheap to ship a container so I was hoping they were as good as they claimed. Well I was expecting to ship 3-4 containers and these guys safely loaded me into 2 containers…I love these guys! If you’re shipping goods over-the-road and on a frugal budget, EMS is the way to go!”
-Adam P, Chicago & Beyond….

“At the busiest time of year and on a moments notice, EMS fit me into their very busy schedule without penalizing me financially for my last-second request. They were extremely professional, friendly, and willing to help in any way needed. I could not be more pleased with EMS. This was the most stress-free moving experience I’ve had in the past 40 years of moving. If you need a professional, dependable, & reliable moving team, then EMS is it.”
-Linda T, Glen Ellyn

“I'd like to personally thank Mike, Dave and their highly professional and efficient crew at EMS for making this move the best one of all.

Let me explain. I'm a twenty year U.S. military veteran with plenty of relocations under my belt. And if you're reading this testimony, you're probably experiencing the same anxiety, nervousness and foreboding feelings I've felt in all of my prior moves. I'm a civilian now, so having to pay for my own out-of-state relocation only exacerbated those feelings.

When I contacted EMS, Mike seemed to have single-handedly erased all of those unwanted thoughts.
When Dave and the EMS crew came in to pack-up and move all of my family's precious items, it was confirmed that those unwanted thoughts were erased.

I was present for the entire process and EMS packed all of it with great efficiency and care.

All the goods were removed from my Chicago condo, loaded into their transport vehicle downstairs, driven to the container shipping facility up by O’Hare (a separate transportation company), and unloaded everything into three mobile containers.
All this was completed before my condo's allocated elevator move-out time even expired! That is a wonderful tribute to the effectiveness and efficiency of an incredibly proficient and accomplished business that puts care and compassion ahead of profit.

I wish all of you readers the best of luck in your next move. If you choose EMS, you won't need it!”
-Steven G, Chicago-SF
