That was the old beltman agent that I had the problems with (I don't think they are there anymore) I have been using Prager in Naperville since and they do a great job for me. From coming in on the weekend's to coming in at 8pm to letting me use one of there trucks todo a shuttle, to having a nice clean facility with easy acces/parking and qualified help.

I've got a move scheduled for 11/20 with Moovers, Inc. I live at 5xx W. Diversey Pkwy. That is between the major cross streets of Clark & Diversey and Sheridan & Diversey. I am in a walk-up building with alley access. The alley is where movers typically park.

My driver is nervous about driving his tractor in to the city. He also looked on Google Maps and is nervous about where his tractor can be parked. Since he only felt comfortable using a shuttle, I went ahead and agreed to pay for it.

However, l have two concerns:

First, even with a shuttle, he said that he is nervous about low train tracks. I'm sure there are ways to get to my place and avoid train tracks. Normally I take Lakeshore Drive and get off at Fullerton, then take the park up to my place. However, I don't think trucks are allowed on Lakeshore. How would you recommend I direct the driver? He should probably be able to take care of this himself, but I'll help him if I can.

Second, he seems to think that he might have to make two shuttles. I don't know whether they would charge me twice if they had to do two. I only have a 2 bedroom apartment (albeit a large 2 bedroom) and he is bringing a 24 foot shuttle truck. U-Haul's 24 foot trucks say they can handle 3-4 bedrooms. Therefore, assuming I have an average to large 2 bedroom, should there be any problem fitting everything in a 24 foot truck?
