the guys were professional, energetic, helpful. They did a quick look around of what we needed to move determined the best way to load the truck and got it done. Would gladly recommend them to anyone.

Review by in Chicago, IL
Booking and follow up were very easy! I only had 2 issues; 1) 3 guys were sent, 2 were middle aged and 1 was older. All were nice but the older gentleman didn't do much. It would have gone much faster if there was a 3rd guy moving items. 2) The 2 guys agreed to take some larger items I was trashing out to the alley. I didn't think to look until after they left... they just tossed them in front of my neighbor's parked car. Totally blocked him in and didn't say anything to me. There was clearly space on the other side of the garage so I moved them over myself. I notified the owner when she came with the paperwork to sign. She let them know as I took out their tips and made them apologize. Not the worst but I would have at least expected them to say something to me if they didn't know where to put the items (and it was pretty obvious).

Booking was easy and great follow up. My only feedback is that the 2 gentlemen who came to move my items were elderly and slower than I would have expected. My niece and I ended up moving a lot of the smaller items so I could stay within the booking window that I arranged. Both men were friendly and helpful just slow. I would defiantly use Broms, Inc., for future moves.

Lynne the rep did not tell me the truth about crew and service. They did not know how to pack a truck, did not wrap furniture, did not use special bags they recommended for mattresses, were rude and started arguing with home owner. Lynne was no better. She kept changing her story and constantly interrupted the crew and whomever was speaking to her. The crew kept taking breaks and carried only 1 box at a time--worst movers ever. Overall awful experience and awful people.
Response by W. P. Broms, Inc.: This review is not accurate, nor true. The whole ordeal was very, very shady. Not only that, the customer was not at the move at all except for 5 minutes at the end when she refused to pay for the move making up excuses. We have a feeling this has happened with other movers in the past. We have been in business for 125 years and have NEVER moved anyone without wrapping the furniture properly. Every detail of the move was spelled out and competed fully, Finally, the move was done is LESS time than quoted, which would be a difficult task if in fact one box was moved at a time. We will let our other reviews reflect our services and reputation.

Lynn Broms, the owner is the point person for her family run business that has been in the moving business since 1895 !!! She worked closely to ensure our satisfaction and is very professional and knowledgeable. She is highly recommended for both local and long distance moving service and will save you money.

Review by in Barrington, IL
Movers showed up early and got right to work. Wrapped all my furniture before putting it on the truck. Treated my belongings with respect and made sure nothing was damaged. If I ever move again I will definitely be hiring this company again.
Response by W. P. Broms, Inc.: Thank you so much (consumer name withheld per their request). We pride ourselves on treating your things as if they were our own. Best of luck in your new home!

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.



NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
