"I had a great experience with Midwest. The movers arrived early, set up my entire home with protective pads and flooring, effectively moved all of my home items, and cleaned up afterward. I have actually used them twice. I had different employees each time, but both crews of men were equally prompt, professional, and efficient. I would highly recommend Midwest."

"Midwest Moving worked with me and my grandmother to move her entire house across the country. Very professional and efficient. My family has a history of moving with Midwest and each time they have taken care of our belongings until we settled in. 5 stars and heavily recommended for moving across the Midwestern region."
