Working with JC Movers & Lumper Service was the worst experience of moving that I’ve ever had because of the incompetence and unprofessional behavior of the crew.Only 2 movers showed up rather than the 3 we paid for. When asked, the other movers laughed, smirked at each other, and just said "He's not coming."The crew leader, Curtis, smelled strongly of alcohol upon arrival. Throughout the day Curtis was aloof, slow-moving, and rarely spoke. He stayed inside the townhouse most of the day, taking apart a crib, and left all the hard work and actual moving to the younger member of the crew.The younger man was inexperienced and severely damaged our hardwood floors, front door, and drywall up and down the stairs. He was extremely careless with our possessions and did not load the truck efficiently or safely. He filled the entire trailer with boxes and furniture, but only about 5’ high despite having 9' of vertical space to work with. Heavy boxes were placed on top of lighter boxes, and the boxes marked "fragile" were put on the bottom of the load underneath heavy furniture or other heavy boxes. Most of these fragile boxes and their contents were damaged during the cross-country drive. The load was not braced or reinforced in any way to avoid items shifting in transit which caused serious damage to a prized antique bookcase and several other items.When the crew at the destination opened the trailer to transfer the contents into a shuttle, everything had shifted during transit and many boxes were crushed. The crew actually identified a safety risk in unpacking the trailer because items would shift dangerously when a box or piece of furniture was removed. They were able to fit our entire load into 16' of shuttle truck space when stacked efficiently to the ceiling and properly braced. This is 12' less than what the JC moving crew used which represented over $900 in unnecessary trailer space cost.In terms of the good, two things: 1. After being advised of this experience, the president of the company, Chandra Thomas, extended a courtesy credit of $250. Although this is half of what it will cost to fix the bookcase, not to mention the extra space the JC crew used in the trailer, I did appreciate the gesture. 2. The company sent a contractor to fix the front door, walls, and hardwood floors in our townhouse which was done reasonably well and quickly.Considering everything together, I would recommend you avoid this company and look for a more reputable local mover that will treat your home and possessions with respect and care.

The 3 men that move my furniture were extremely conscientious. They treated my furniture as if it was theirs, being very careful with stair, walls and placement. I would definitely use their services again and highly recommended them.

We moved with Zippy Shell from Pennsylvania to Chicago and they subcontracted JC Movers. The guys handled our stuff with care and were quick, efficient, and professional. They took a lot of pride in their work and it was evident in how they treated our belongings. We will be using them again if we need to move locally.
