This was a local move of some furniture and Lynn quoted me a price based on 3 people and truck. The crew was very professional and wrapped all the furniture so nothing was broken or nicked in the process. I would certainly use them again. They also follow up before the move to ensure the schedule was current.

We moved from Highland Park, IL to Manhattan. Lynn Broms was friendly and helpful. Most importantly, she was creative and flexible, which ended up saving us a good amount of money in the end. :-) We did almost all of the packing ourselves, all they packed were some art work, which they did an excellent job at. Move-out and move-in happened on-time. One thing that I really appreciated is that two of the 4 move-out people were also on the move-in crew, so there was continuity. Both teams were good-natured and worked well together. (I've read reviews of other companies where the team bickered.) The only negative thing I can mention is that one of the book boxes ended up split along one corner. No contents were lost or damaged. Turns out I was largely at fault because I didn't pack that box all the way up to the top, like Lynn had advised me to do. The result is that since book boxes are normally at the bottom of the pile, the boxes on top weakened and split the box I hadn't packed right. But no harm done, they just had to carry it carefully. I would use Broms again in an instant.

Ken and his crew worked extremely hard all day to get my family moved out of our house and an offsite storage unit and into our new house. They worked hard, had a great attitude and were a pleasure to have around that day. They made sure everything was where we wanted it before leaving after a very long day. Their effort was great. The schedulers Lynn and Jodie were also very resourceful. The called several times leading up to my move to make sure I had everything I needed to execute on move day. Would definitely recommend using them in the future.

I can’t say enough good things about W.P. Broms. Lynn was so helpful and accommodating when my move had to be rescheduled at the last minute. The three men who did the actual move were terrific.

Review by in Elgin, IL
From my first meeting with Lynn to the last moment the moving crew drove away, my move was a positive experience with Broms. Lynn was on top of things and knew just what we needed to get things done the right way. The 4 men who did the actual 2-day move were excellent at what they did and were pleasant to work with on top of it! I cannot begin to express how much of a relief it was to have this go so smoothly!

Very professional from start to finish. Lynn was very responsive and the 3 men from Brom's were great. They were careful with all of my belongings and respectful of my home as they were loading and unloading. I was very pleased with this company.

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.
