Doug - Rockford

I was looking for a reliable and trustworthy business to move a safe for me and I truly found them. These guys are great!!! Price was great and talk about professional movers, they were done in about 45 minutes and were so careful with everything. I will use them again and I recommend them to everyone in the Rockford area in need of their services.

Gary - Dunlap

If you are looking for timely, precise, professional service with excellent results, this is the company and team you want to select. Greg and Jim demonstrated a real attention to details, and an extensive level of experience to get new safe delivery job completed with no damage to floors, carpeting, walls, or the safe being moved. Our house was somewhat challenging with three 90 degree turns going down our basement stairs. Greg and Jim worked in a very coordinated fashion and had my Liberty Safe in place in 30 minutes. I am totally pleased with their superb work and you will be, too.

Marc - Cary

I have to tell you this guys were the best. They received my safe from the carrier, did the inspection and moved it to my home lickety split. Installation in a tight closet went smoothly. Very careful and no damage anywhere. Greg and Jimmy were the best.

Rod - Mendota

Last night, WMS picked up a used 850 lbs safe at a private residence and relocated it to my residence, including a flight of stairs. Having read all these testimonials, my experience was much the same… another very good experience. I am now confident all the comments on this page are accurate. In addition, I felt WMS pricing was reasonable for this very specialized work. Should I need this service again WMS will be my only call. Thank you again guys.

Parkson - Geneva

Thank you gentleman, for moving my huge cabela’s/liberty safe. They did it within a week of asking and did it promptly and professionally. Cheaper than other quotes I received but quality care. Very impressed.

Mark - Kingston

Thank you Jim & Greg, I purchased a Liberty Fat Boy JR 48 and call Jim to have it picked up and delivered because of the reputation. I could not be happier with their service. It was not the easiest delivery because the safe went in the basement and the weight of the safe at about 700lbs and low clearance going down the stairs. They handled it very well and had the job done in about 20min from the time they arrived. If you need a safe moved I highly recommend We Move Safes.

Eric - Washington

Greg and Jim did a great job! They moved a 1,000 pound safe from my garage to the basement in very little time. They were very professional from the beginning of the quoting process until the job was completed!! I would highly recommend them to do any heavy moving job for you.

Dave - Bartlett

I would highly recommend these guys to move your safe. They definitely are very experienced, knowledgeable and use the latest equipment. They are very careful to not damage anything.

Joseph - Bourbonnais

I cannot thank Jim, Greg, and helper Don enough for my move. I own a 1600 lb. Liberty National Security NS50 and they moved it with ease. Taking special care of both locations as if they were their own. Safe was set in position and looked at from every angle making sure things were squared up correctly and leveled. No door swinging open on you no matter how far you open it. Could not be happier. Great guys providing a superb service. Would definitely recommend for your next safe move. A+

Alan - Joliet

If you need a safe moved, these are the ONLY guys to call. I bought mine from a chain store that offered delivery from a nationwide mover. I went with Greg and Jim based on the testimonials I read. They picked it up at the store, brought it to the house, and had in the basement faster than I would have expected. They also took the time to show me the features of my safe and showed me how to open it and a couple of "gotchas" to watch out for. Awesome job guys!!!

Justin - Bourbonnais

I bought a Liberty Franklin 7001b safe thinking me and some buddies could move it down my awkward staircase to the basement, but I was wrong. After my wife told me I couldn't just leave it in the living room, I gave Jim a call! After seeing the great teamwork of Jim and Greg and their knowledge, was my proof as to why I couldn't move it myself. These guys are very professional and very flexible so they can get the job done, the right way! I would recommend them in a heartbeat! Moving this wasn't an easy task with my staircase!

Terry - Elgin

A HUGE thanks to Jim and Greg! We have a rather large Liberty, right at 1000 lbs., empty. It was in my mind a very tight move at the start and end to get the job done, not to mention 13 stairs and three doorways with under an inch clearanc! Jim and Greg handled it like a walk in the park. Under an hour, never touched a wall and not a mark on the Hard Wood floors. WOW, thanks again and YES, I HIGHLY recommend We Move Safes to handle any safe move!

Dr. SB - Champaign

The professionals at We Move Safes Etc. are very knowledgeable, punctual, clean, and precise. I had several heavy objects moved to difficult locations. Spotless performance. Their price is worth every penny. When you need the the job to be done right, simply call GREG and JIM. I would use them again in a heartbeat.

Derek - Dekalb

Thanks for doing such a great job! Moving a 6001bs safe upstairs and into another house never looked so easy. I will use these professionals again and tell everyone that is thinking about moving anything heavy. Thanks Greg and Jim!

Vince - Bartlett

What can I say about these guys? Fast, friendly, professional service. They went out of their way to accommodate my needs and really helped me out. I would highly recommend them to everyone!

Gene - Sycamore, IL

Thanks so much for the great safe moving job - Down stairs - UNBELIEVABLE. You sure make it look easy - Easy it is not!

Leveling the safe was done with terrific expertise, wow. Open the safe door in any position - The door remains in the position you opened the door - Does not swing either open or close unless one moves the door.

Feel free to have anyone call for reference.

Deanna - Chicago, IL

The work completed by the guys at We Move Safes was the BEST part of a difficult day. They were both professional and efficient - not to mention experts in their field. They moved and installed my 790 LB gun safe in less than 20 minutes, overcoming challenges very quickly. Their customer service was some of the best I've experience. They will have my business in the future should the need arise. Thank you Greg and Jim!

William - Dunlap, IL

Greg and Jim are a great team and did an excellent job moving my Custom Fort Know 1,100lb safe. They have the equipment and knowledge to do the job right and safe. The quoting process was easy and straight forward. They moved my safe from Princeton, IL to Dunlap, IL with no issues or scratches. They leveled and anchored my safe and it is rock solid. I will be calling Greg and Jim again for their services on my next move. I will recommend them to anyone looking to move a safe.

Jim G. - Wheaton, IL

This testimonial is long over due but when a Friend asked me who moved my safe because he needed to relocate his I suggested "We Move Safes". Being self employed I know how Testimonials work. I had bought a Liberty safe from a Big Ticket Sport/Outdoor store in 2012 and had them pick it up and deliver it to my house the next day. After dealing with them and watching them work I wouldn't consider anyone else.

Dan - Chicago Ridge, IL

Greg and Jim moved my safe yesterday and they did a great job. The safe was located at my old house in the basement and was moved to my new house and placed on the 2nd floor. Not only were they prompt and professional but they were neat and clean and moved my 800lb safe without so much as touching or scuffing a wall. I wished I could say the same for my appliance and furniture movers. I would recommend them to anyone who has a safe to move!

Nick - Saint Charles, IL

Cannot say enough about Greg and Jim. True professionals. Thank you guys and I will definitely spread the word about you two.

Dennis - Rochelle, IL

WOW, Are these guys good or what? They put a 725 lbs safe in my basement that was almost impossible. We Move Safes is the best in the business. They went up stairs, over hardwood floors, down hardwood steps, down carpeted steps, through a small door and put this safe on an elevated platform within 2" of a drop ceiling. I have to say that this safe move was the best money I ever spent... House is OK, my back is OK and my wife is happy. Thank you for a job well done. You have my highest level of reccomendation.

Dan - Lockport, IL

I called Greg after buying a Fatboy safe at Gander. I was extremely impressed with how quickly my call was returned and the scheduling, delivery and setup of the unit was very impressive to say the least. Greg and Jim are good guys to deal with and I give them a "10"

Mike & LJ - Dixon, IL

Fifteen minutes in and out...Down 13 steps, around two 90 degree corners, across the basement floor and in place, without a chip, nick, dent or scratch anywhere. These guys are true professionals, and it was a pleasure to do business with them. Money well spent! We would recommend these guys highly! Thank you Jim and Greg for a jobe well done.

Rex - Chicagoland Area, IL

Greg and Jim are true professionals and their experience really shows through! They were able to locate my safe in a very tight location and knew exactly what they needed to do. No guesswork. How re-assuring it was to see them work together - what teamwork! They take pride in doing a good job - something that seems to have been lost now-a-days. My personal thanks for a job well done!

Michael - Galesburg, IL

If you are researching safe movers you can confidently stop right now. In a nutshell: Professional, Friendly, Careful, Reasonable, Experienced.

I was absolutely impressed...these guys are really that good. Hire them. You wont be sorry and will not go wrong doing so! Greg and Jim...thank you very much, and best of luck to you both! If I need my safes moved again I know who to call!

Rick H. - Sandwich, IL

I recently purchased a 700lb gun safe online and needed it moved from my garage to my office. Greg and Jim arrived on time, were very professional, careful with the safe, floors and walls. They ensured that it was level and operating properly. They even took the skid and pakaging with them. The rate was reasonable and it was definitely worth the price to have the safe installed damage free. I would highly reccomend them.

Stan - Peoria, IL

Greg and Jim are great to work with and always deliver the very best in customer service. Every delivery that they have done for us has drawn rave reviews. My customers love them and so do we. They make us look great every time. Thanks guys.

Ron P. - McNabb, IL

I asked Jim and Greg to move an ATM machine, from a store to one of my bank facilities in the basement. And then again from the basement to it's location now. They also have moved some of my heavy personal items. They did it all without a scratch, and done very professionally. Highly recommended.

Scott M.T. - Peoria, IL

Dear Greg and Jim,
I would like to personally thank both of you for the awesome job you did in the delivery and placement of my Custom Pendleton Safe. Since this safe was custom built and painted from the manufacturer, I was extremely concerned that care be taken in the delievery and installation since this is a one of a kind safe. Damage was not an option and would have costed a fortune to replace the unit. Well, my hat goes off to you guys; you pulled this install off without a hitch. You attention to protecting everything from the safe, entrance ways, tile, wood and carpet floorings thorughout the process of the installation was impeccable!

It's really hard to find great companies that thrive on great customer service these days. Keep up the great work and I assure you that I will recommend We Move Safes to my family, friends and colleagues.

Thanks again for your team making this a wonderful experience.

Brian D. - Geneva

I recently bought a gun safe that weighed over 500 pounds from a large retail store. Their sales promised free delivery. I got what I paid for. The guys showed up and got it as far as my foyer and said they were done. Seeing as how this needed to be in the basement I had a problem on my hands. I called Gander Mountain to ask for a referral. They recommended Greg and Jim from "We Move Safes, Etc." I gave them a call and got on their schedule.

These guys were professional in every respect. They kept me up to date on their schedule. They showed up exactly on time. They were insured. Most importantly they assured me they would not scratch a thing including my hardwood floors. Using specual tools they carefully navigated my stairs and easily cleared the hardwood bull nose of the first step. Within 30 minutes of the time they arrived I had my safe located to the exact spot I wanted. Nothing was marked, chipped, or damaged in anyway. They showed me how to operate my safe and when they left they took all the packing materials with them. Nothing left for me to clean.

I was happy enough with their service that I called them the next day to pass along my compliments. Nowadays it seems when I have someone come out to my house to fix one thing they break two other things. That was not the case with We Move Safes Etc. They were true pros. To top things off the price was reasonable.

Thanks Again.
