  • Local Moving

    Generally challenging moves result from inaccurate estimates, understaffed or inexperienced crews and poor communication from moving companies. We know this, and over the years we developed a business model to avoid these traps. First, we’ll do an in-home inspection to make sure we understand the scope of the work. This allows us to provide you with a fair and reliable cost estimate. You’ll work with one of our experienced team members who will prepare you for your move, identify potential problem areas, and work with you to minimize cost. We can do everything from pack your entire house, to simply move boxes and furniture that you’ve prepared. Whatever your moving needs, we’re there to help.

    All Coakley Brothers personnel are full time employees. We do not use temporary services or casual labor to supplement our crews. Coakley Brothers employment is contingent upon a complete background check and drug screening, and new hires receive thorough training and mentoring by veteran moving employees. Post move survey results for 2008 show that 97% of our customers were satisfied with our service and would recommend us to others. Coakley Brothers would like the opportunity to add you to our long list of satisfied customers.

Whatever your policy, we will design a program that perfectly fits your company’s needs and goals.

    Coakley Brothers will assign a dedicated counselor to assist your employee through each phase of the moving relocation. By having a single point of contact your employees can relax, knowing that your customer service representative closely monitors all the details.

What Are People Saying?

Dear Susan, Everything worked out very well in transfer of my goods from Turkey. Your staff did an excellent job with the packing. I was impressed with the level of care. Unlike some companies I dealt with in the past, your staff maintained a good level of communication and were attentive to my concerns. Your whole operation, starting in Istanbul and ending here in Milwaukee was very smooth. I thank you all once again, it was a pleasure to work with you.
-Nevin Uysall-Biggs

Dear Kevin and Vanessa, Both my daughter, who worked in person with Eddie Small, and I, who worked with him on the phone, want to compliment his professionalism, management skills, and solution-orientation. What a great man! What a hard worker! Thank you very much for working with him. He certainly gave us both confidence, as our family heirloom pool table goes off, under his care, from Brookfield, WI, to Marblehead, MA, over the next week. Gratefully,
-Kris Coffey

Dear Bill, I just wanted to let you know that the three guys that moved us today did a tremendous job! Very professional, careful, friendly, and hard working. We will be moving in the next year or two and when we buy a house and we will use your company and request the same crew. Thanks again!
-Mike Rein

Dear Kevin, From past moves, both residential and commercial, I knew that Coakley Brothers would do an excellent job helping us close up my mother-in-law’s home and move her from Florida to Milwaukee. From the first phone call to the very last handshake, everything was absolutely perfect. You made our move so easy. The movers were amazing. They were prompt, polite and professional. They worked quickly, carefully, efficiently and HARD, reminding me that hard labor is not easy. I know nothing they could have done to please us more. Sincerely,
-David L. Wild

Dear Mary, Antonio and Bob could not have been more helpful, willing and efficient. Thanks for excellent service that was in stark contrast to another local company, who moved another resident on the same day, which left her in tears with frustration. I hope I never have to move again, but if I do, I will be hiring you! Best,
-Shirley Stone

Dear Peggy, Just wanted you to know that Tim and I were so very impressed with all four Coakley Brothers movers, assigned to us, at both our move out and move in dates. They were all total gentlemen, and each one of them went the extra mile for us. To describe them using the adjective “exceptional” doesn’t do justice. You have a lot to be proud of with these four employees! To top it off, they can’t say enough about you as their employer. That speaks volumes on a company very well run! Hats off to you! All the best,

Dear Kevin, We have moved six times in the last five years and your organization from start to finish is by far the best! I would definitely recommend you! Your crew was outstanding on both ends. Regards,
-Tamie Hoy

Dear Kevin, The crew that moved us was amazing – they did an incredible job and went over and above to make the move smooth. Thanks!
-Catherine Hulett

Dear Kevin, The move was actually fun! What an exciting day…and so easy, the crew was “top notch” – what a nice group of guys! They were professional, courteous and best yet – our move went quickly with absolutely no damage.
-Jackie Van Dyke

Dear Kevin, The two men who moved us into our new home were excellent. They demonstrated professional attitudes and were friendly/courteous the entire day. They protected our belongings and our home from any damage. We would recommend them to any other friends and family. Thank you!
-Rudy Wells
