“I’m super excited we hired His Workmanship for our move today. All four college movers showed up on time and got right to lifting our heavy items. What caught my attention most was the Christian mission of the company. As a believer myself I felt at peace scheduling movers who I knew I could definitely trust. I have already recommended His Workmanship and will continue to do so.” – Lori

Great experience with His Workmanship. They responded to my request promptly, got me scheduled quickly, and then sent a great crew that worked diligently to finish a yard project that we needed help with. Would certainly recommend, and also consider using again.
The crew arrived earlier than I had planned but got started working anyway and were already working on the areas that I needed done. The two men were very pleasant and friendly. They did everything I asked and put my.tools and wheelbarrows back where they belonged. Will definitely use them again!
I would highly recommend this team! I sent in an email request and heard back from them in less than 24 hours for a quote. Very pleased with their landscaping work and communication.
The boys who came to weed for me were so pleasant and got right to work. They even continued working as it started to rain. I had plenty of tools, but Logan came prepared with plenty of his own tools along with a wheelbarrow! I would like to have them back as I had a long list of items needing attention, but the 3 hours were up and more rain was predicted. I will be calling on them again.
great job.wonderful young people
Nick and Tanner were just so professional, on-time, very pleasant to speak with and ready to get instructions on the work they needed to perform. Their performance was amazing. They even asked if there was anything else I needed them to do. I give His Workman, Nick and Tanner high a 10-star recommendation. Thank you, Eric, because my customer service experience was wonderful from the very beginning in speaking with you. His Workmanship is definitely worth using for your next project. I definitely will contact them for mine.
We needed rock removed from garden bed. They did a great job. I would definitely recommend these guys.
Scott and his team did a really good job getting me moved into my new home. They showed up for work on time and were very courteous and professional, I look forward to the next time I use their services again.Thanks Team!!!!
This service is worth every penny. The crew Travis and John were great workers and thorough. They were polite and professional. I would highly recommend this service. We're hiring them again in the near future.
Jake, Cal and Dom were an amazing crew and did an outstanding job around my yard!! So very grateful to meet these polite young men! I highly recommend them!!
100% pleased with the entire crew's work. Would hire them again!
I had an absolutely wonderful experience with hiring His Workmanship! The crew showed up before 8 am and were hard-working, polite and asked great questions. It was clear that their goal was that I would be satisfied with the project and I definitely am! They came and accomplished the three landscape projects I had contracted for and were so efficient they ended up being able to tackle several more jobs. The communication I had with the owner was fantastic and very timely. I highly recommend this fantastic team!
The service was great. The guys were on time, friendly and worked well. It was such a relief to have their help and get done what we couldn't. I also appreciated the quick response to my request and how quickly the were able to do the work. Thanks so much.
The team did an excellent job with many general yard maintenance task. They were on time and friendly. I'll use them again, highly recommend them.
Everything went according to plan. Gosh, the gentlemen were hard workers and did not need any kind of supervision. They were very knowledgeable, especially buckthorn and other types. They asked questions. Overall, this was simply an incredible experience of receiving their help for something so important that I cannot do. Extraordinary!!
The guys were great hard workers, and charming , sweet people.
Very professional - hard workers. Well worth the money.
The company arrived precisely on time, and I courteously explained the work that needed to be completed. I kindly requested that they inform me if they had any questions or concerns. The work they performed was amazing, and I hired three of them for five hours to efficiently complete the required tasks. I intend to utilize their services again for future projects. Thank you!!
I have had the privilege to work with this company on 3 occasions and was pleased with their quality of the work. The employees showed up on time and were professional throughout the entire process. I would hire them again.
Initial communication to set up scheduled work was seemless. The crew arrived early due to possible weather and proceeded to get right to work. Both crew members were polite and respectful of both me and our property. Stayed busy and completed the task perfectly in less than allotted time and offered to do more tasks. I would definitely recommend them (and will ) to anyone needing a project done at their home or business. Will be calling them again for any future projects.

Ready to inquire about truck unloading in Chicago?

Frequently Asked Questions

The overall cost is based on a variety of factors, but the main components to weigh (no pun intended) are: the size of the moving truck, how full it was loaded, how many oversized items are inside, specialized equipment like moving straps or a furniture dolly, elevator availability, number of stairs up or down, and whether or not there is a ramp available on the moving truck. All things being equal, it usually costs between $400 – $500 to unload a 26 ft truck, $300 – $400 to unload a 20 ft truck and $250 – $300 to unload a 16 ft truck. You will have gotten a good deal if the cost to unload a moving truck falls within these price ranges.
It really depends on factors such as: the size of the truck, heavy items in the truck, how organized the truck was packed, how many stairs to go up or down, whether an elevator is available, how strong and fast the movers are, and even weather conditions like extreme heat or slippery ice/snow. But in general, it usually takes 4-5 hours for 2 movers to unload a 26 foot truck, 3 hours for 2 movers to help unload a 20 foot truck and 2 hours for 2 movers to unload a 16 foot moving truck. If your job ends up taking any longer than this, you should begin to think about whether or not the movers are going slow on purpose, perhaps to “milk the clock” for more money.
It would be wise to book 4 movers for medium to large jobs, especially ones that involve heavier items. An even number of movers (like 2 or 4) is more efficient than an odd number of movers (1 or 3), since some items will require one or two persons on each side. For items that weigh 200 pounds or more, having 4 movers will allow there to be 2 movers on each side which will distribute the weight to just 50 pounds per mover. If you have a decent amount of strength and are willing to assist for the whole duration of the move, then that would be the only situation where I’d recommend hiring an odd number of movers.
If you just hire movers to help unload the truck, then you don’t need to buy them food because it shouldn’t take more than 3-4 hours to complete the labor-only moving service. However, if you hire a moving company for a full service move, then getting a meal for the movers after they load and before they begin unloading is pretty standard in the industry. That said, considerate moving companies will bring their own lunch just in case, so as not to impose upon the customers voluntary generosity. In short, food is appreciated but not expected. It doesn’t need to be a gourmet meal either. Homemade meals like sandwiches are common, assuming you have dishes and silverware unpacked and available. Otherwise, fast food delivery like pizza or subs provide a quick and easy lunch.
The advantages to a storage container are: lowest cost, no driving necessary, free storage of items, and smaller size options. The disadvantages are: limited delivery timeframes, unable to transport large vehicles, and parking challenges. The benefits of a moving truck are: variety of truck lengths, car towing options, and ability to park on the street. The negatives are: no storage option, you must drive the truck, and more expensive pricing. To learn more, I encourage you to read my in-depth blog titled Pros and Cons: Moving Truck vs. Storage Container.
The two biggest players in the moving truck industry are U-Haul and Penske. U-Haul has the most locations nationwide and charges $39.95 for a 17 ft truck (or bigger), $29.95 for a 15 ft truck and $19.95 for a 10 ft truck. Each of these three truck options also charges $0.99 cents per mile driven. Penske partners with Home Depot so has trucks available at any Home Depot location. Penske charges $209 for a 16 ft truck or $249 for a 22 ft truck and offers free unlimited miles. For a long distance move (more than 100 miles) you should go with Penske. For a local move (less than 100 miles) U-Haul will be your best choice.
If you live on a high floor of a building that has an elevator available, then yes, you should reserve it for the movers unloading your items. You’ll need to call the concierge to make the reservation before you book the movers. You should be able to reserve the elevator for a 3-4 hour window of time. The apartment may even hang protective blankets in the elevator to prevent scratches or other damages. Best of all, there’s no charge associated with an elevator reservation. If you accidentally forget to reserve the elevator, then your movers will need to use the stairs. This will cause them to expend more energy and take more time, which will lead to both disgruntled movers and a higher cost for the consumer.
Yes, all things considered equal, it’s usually twice as fast to unload a moving truck as compared to loading one. Why? The main reason is because there’s no need to spend all that time packing your items in an organized way to preserve truck space (think Tetris). You won’t need to spend time tying down or wrapping up your items either. The only thing that may cause truck unloading to take longer than loading would be if there are many stairs to bring the items up or long hallways in the apartment or condo. However, if you reserve an elevator, then that will solve the stairs problem. If the movers provide a four wheel dolly, then that will solve the hallway problem.
Before you start unloading your storage container or moving truck, you should have a good idea of where everything goes inside your new residence. It’s most strategic to start with the items that need to go upstairs or downstairs. Then you can finish off on the main floor. However, this would require you to have packed the truck accordingly so be sure to think ahead before you start packing. Oh, and don’t forget: try to unpack dishes, silverware and other kitchen utensils first. That will afford you the opportunity to cook some food for the movers. This will provide them with additional energy to unload the remaining items in your storage container or moving truck. Check out my blog if you want more information on how to Unload a Moving Truck like a Pro.
Here are 15 questions to ask moving companies before you decide to hire movers to unload your truck. 1. Are you licensed? 2. Do you have insurance? 3. Do you offer written estimates? 4. Can you provide references? 5. What is your cancellation policy? 6. How long might the move take? 7. Do you offer packing services? 8. Do you require a deposit? 9. Are there any additional fees? 10. Does the clock start at my residence or your office? 11. Can you guarantee my moving date? 12. Do you provide storage? 13. What payment methods do you accept? 14. Are the movers employees or contractors? 15. Is this company a broker or a carrier? Click here to get a free truck unloading estimate from His Workmanship.

My name is Corey and I heard about His Workmanship from my soccer coach at Northwestern University. One of the things I’ve enjoyed most about this opportunity is the chance to meet so many different customers for each project. This really helps me grow in my social skills and prepares me for better customer service in whatever full-time career I choose. Plus, the pay is much higher than what I’d get from other non-skilled labor work during the summer season when I’m not in school.
