    Stevenson Transfer made our move from IL to NC smooth. They answered all of our questions prior to the move.

    We appreciated the professionalism, willingness to go the extra mile, and pride in work of the moving team. It was a pleasure to work with every one on the team at Stevenson.

    Experience was very good from start to finish. We met with Steve to discuss move first and was very knowledgeable and explained everything to us. Movers were prompt and did a nice job. Just a little confused with the transportation charge we received after the move was over and paid for. This was never explained to us or talked about before the move or during the move.

    The driver and helpers were amazing and very grace-filled and helped us tremendously. Stevensons moving company helped explain things and knew exactly what they were talking about, helped my parents with questions.

    An agent from Stevenson's Transport in Ottawa, IL came to my home and had an in-depth interview with me about my move. He performed a thorough survey of everything I needed to be moved, gave my a variety of move options and listened to concerns and timetable. The Stevenson Transport team kept me informed during each step. They arrived promptly for packing, loading transport and delivery. One of my big concerns was delivery at my specific new home. It has a long narrow driveway and no realistic way for a tractor trailer to deliver unless transfer to another vehicle at my address. They opted to use a smaller truck and backed down my driveway instead. This worked great for them and for me. My move went extremely well.

    Overall a positive experience, except for major issue with cocktail table, still trying to determine source of breakage. Crew from Chicago was professional, communicative, helpful and cordial. The crew driver and Shane were equally professional in Sarasota. The adjunct crew from Tampa could have been more better. They were respectful and hard working but needed to pay far more attention to placing boxes in the proper rooms. I did not pay to have to move dozens upon dozens of boxes to the right rooms by myself. Additionally disappointing were the furniture its that were damaged (chair leg, wine cabinet, sofa, etc.) and whatever else is undisclosed until unpacked.

    The crew was very professional. Our items were very well organized and it definitely made unpacking much more efficient.

    We purchased the insurance offered. Unfortunately my husbands antique desk given to him by his Father was dropped and broke, and is unfixable.Having trouble with the claim. Wants to give much less than the desk is worth.Very upsetting. Very disappointed.

  • Mary Statz

    I could not have asked for a better experience, both in terms of the crew that packed me and the job that they did. Joe was friendly and professional. He and his crew were very efficient at packing and loading, and then unpacking and unloading. Yet at the same time they were very careful with my things. Everything arrived at my new place in the same condition it was in when it left my old place. Joe reassured me more than once that they would take great care of my things. And they did! And though I'm sure this doesn't always happen, I felt lucky that Joe was present and in charge at both my loading location in IL and my delivery location in CO. I could not have asked for a better experience - thank you!

    My relationship with Stevenson Transfer — and particularly my driver/crew chief Kevin — was the easiest part of my interstate move from Wrigleyville in Chicago to an equally congested neighborhood near downtown Denver at the tender age of 71. These folks absolutely deserve their position at the top of Yelp's list of best Interstate movers from Chicago! Starting with Bill Stevenson (who did the estimate and came within 300 pounds of the final weight for my 1-bedroom household, with umpteen heavy boxes and many fragile pieces of family antiques) and ending with Kevin and his wonderful team, it was a pleasure to know them all — including my move coordinator, Lorna, and the woman (sorry I don't recall her name) who answered the phone in Ottawa and quickly put my mind at ease when I first called for info.  The price was totally fair and reasonable; in fact, I ended up getting a small refund after the weigh-in. I can't find enough words to express my satisfaction with the whole experience!

    From the first meeting with Mike Stevenson (Ottawa, IL) to the unloading in our new home by Dave and the local crew, we were more than pleased with the way we were treated, the price charged, the care taken, and the genuine positive attitude of all the staff we met. Mayflower not only was the best value for us but the most professional staff of all four companies that we considered to move us from Illinois to North Carolina. There were no surprises.

  • John & Jean Hutchison

    Our driver/crew chief was amazing. he was very timely/professional/transparent through out the whole process. He was polite. Showed up on time. He also showed us when he found something that could potential be a problem. The staff was patient with me as I had several questions and was very skeptical of the whole process. They were very comforting.

    We were absolutely satisfied and pleased with everything about our Mayflower experience from the office staff, to the "main guy", and to the actual movers themselves. The gentleman who drove our truck and directed the crew was fantastic and all of the fellows helping load the truck and the one helping unload were so efficient and really hard workers and NEVER heard a complaint from any of them. Excellent teamwork for sure.

    I had a great experience with Stevenson Transfer for my move from Chicago to Indy! Joe and crew made my move as stress-free as possible. They did an amazing job loading up and unloading with speed, care, professionalism, and attention to detail. They even were able to push up the delivery schedule a day early to avoid inclement weather. An all around job well done and much appreciated! I will definitely recommend them to others.

    Stevenson Mayflower is a family franchise I have had two great experiences with: A household move from Chicago to Colorado and the recent piano move from Omaha to Chicago. They are the first I call if I need mover services in the Midwest. They are very helpful, responsible and responsive.

It was a huge relief, everything was packed professionally, and all of my furniture arrived in perfect condition. Could not have asked for better service, I will definitely use Mayflower again if/when I move!

    Stevenson transfer handled all our questions promptly, and personally saw to listing all items in a professional manner. We had a lot of help on moving day. To my dismay, the box with bills and medical records was loaded without my seeing it, as I had to run to doctor for blood work, and I haven't seen it since I packed it back in September. The unloading process took place with only two helpers and Joe. My husband helped to expedite he process. I had to leave for a half hour, and again, the medical records/ bills was not seen. Overall, the experience was very easy and stress free. Thanks to all who had a hand in moving us across the country.

    Was very satisfied with the workers as they helped me a lot in the final packing. Also, they were right on the arrival time at my new home and again, the workers were very polite and helpful. Thanks to the folks I never met, but talked with on the phone - resulting in a positive experience for my first "big" move and at the age of 77, it was sometimes overwhelming; I'm still unpacking, but going at a more leisurely pace. Thank you, Stevenson Transfer of Ottawa IL!

    Throughout the entire process the Stevenson folks were on time,communicated with us in a professional manner and good natured. Theres is a hard job that was executed perfectly. It's obvious that they have procedures and policies in place to support their workforce as well as the customer.At the same time the team was not a slave to procedures and we're able to think on their feet when they encountered problems. Their team leader,Kevin encouraged his team to maintain a good pace while allowing us all to have a bit of fun and crack a few jokes.His organizational skills were outstanding, he is clearly an experienced and flexible leader. I wish I'd had bosses as professional as he was during my corporate career.

    MIKE STEVENSON UNDERESTAMATED HOW MUCH STUFF WE HAD. It load weighed much more that what he estimated, but we were not charged what we should have paid. He should have brought a larger truck as not all of are stuff didn't get on.

    In a word, fantastic! The team at Stevenson transfer did a simply phenomenal job. Even though I've still a bit of unpacking to do, I'm confident that I'll find nothing that wasn't carefully prepared in the wrapping process. I would, without ANY reservation whatsoever, recommend Stevenson again. They're simply the best!

    The guys who loaded were pretty slow. But the guys in nYC who unloaded really hustled and were done very quickly. Excellent communication with the office. No real complaints. So much better than my previous move with a different company.

Both move events (pick-up and drop-off) were exactly on-time. The movers were careful, asked questions when needed, and listened well. The move coordinators (prior to the move) were extremely professional and knowledgeable about all aspects of the move. The only thing I can say that is less than positive is that the cost of the move was much higher (+/-$2000)than other estimates I received. I chose Stevenson because of all three of the companies that estimated my move, Stevenson seemed to be the only company that knew the law, knew what needed to happen when, and that gave me a sense of confidence in their abilities.

    The Stevenson team from Ottawa led by Kevin at my home in Il were Fabulous! Tape, boxes , what ever We needed they were there. The unloaded in Tn went as smooth. Kevin gave a delivery time and he was there right on the money. Hope we never move again, but if we do we will call Mayflower!

    There were some tiny items of ours that got wrapped in paper that was on the top as if it was filler paper.....we probably ended up losing 3 or 4 items because of this. Once we realized what the packers did, we checked every single piece of paper which really was time consuming considering they could have wrapped the small items in a better way. We had 3 glass containers filled with sand from different beaches in the US. One container was packed perfectly with the sand intact. The other 2 were not....the sand was dumped out into trash bags and then packed in a separate box. When we first opened the empty glass containers, we had no idea what happened to the contents. It was a waste of boxes as well as appearing our items were discarded.

    We had a great experience from start to finish. From the in-home estimate to the communication beforehand, everything was seamless. Our driver Joe was thoughtful and cautious to not damage any of our items or the apartment we moved out of and the house we moved into. Our stuff arrived very quickly from Chicago to Denver and nothing was damaged or missing.

    packers worked quickly and were respectful of our space and newborn baby mover driving to our new home kept in close contact with us regarding arrival time and weather updates since there was a winter storm movers who met us at our home to unload did a decent job but often would pile boxes in rooms where they were difficult to access and put boxes in incorrect locations.

    I've used Stevenson Transfer twice before. Their employees are always service oriented and professional. I've always been very pleased with their performance. The coordinators are always available and helpful and return calls or emails promptly. The moving guys do a great job packing and take good care of my walls and furniture.

    The move was great. The guys both in boxing the home and the delivery were great. Professional, courteous , respectful, very easy to work with, along being very hard workers. They also did not mind having our yellow lab hang out plus he never got in the way. Buddy was referred to as their mascot. Thank you for having such a great group of workers. I hope the next move we have even half as much luck.
