I am moving to Maryland, VA from Chicago. I have 1 Bed Room House and might not be more than 1700 lbs.

Northland has had their license revoked once already:

And they only have 1 truck/1 driver.

I would stick to larger companies. Many may have a 2000 lb minimum during this season. Make sure they come to do an in home estimate. Here's our Superlist of Movers:

Another option since you don't have much stuff is to use an ABF Relocube. It can hold about 2000 pounds. www.upack.com

You can go to www.emove.com and find a highly rated company to load/unload your cube.

Hi All,

Just want to let you guys know that because of budget constraint, I had used this company. They are not a bad company. The price they quoted me initially did not change. It was a final price and there was no hidden cost.

They explained everything about any additional charges that may be levied on me. It was made clear to me. At the end when they delivered item, there was no extra cost. The fixed priced was fixed price.

You may want to take better insurance coverage for any damaged item. Some of the items which were not packed properly( plastic items) by me got damaged. But overall, they are not a bad company.

There was no hidden cost. packing charges may vary based on the material they use.

Northland has a complaint about lowballing (bait and switch/overcharge/loss of property) with the Illinois Commerce Commission (red flag). I've added it to the Superlist with a :alert: symbol by its name, along with this one good review.

A friend of mine just used them and they closed in the middle of her move, packed up and moved out in the middle of the night. She located her stuff at a storage locker that was 2 weeks away from auction (Northland was not paying the storage company at all). Also, I have heard they are finding trucks just left on the side of the road.

So if you were using Northland recently, and have not gotten your stuff, contact a lawyer.

I used Northland Moving this summer to move from Chicago to NY but they went out of business before delivering my stuff. Does anyone have any idea where it was being stored in Chicago or how to get it back?
