Residential and Household Moving

At Coakley Brothers, we realize that moving your home can be one of life’s most stressful experiences. Whether you are moving from Milwaukee to Madison, anywhere in Wisconsin, or another state across the country, our household moving specialists will handle your possessions with care.
Your move will start with a walk-through of your current living quarters to determine the scope of the work. Then, you will receive a free written quote for your move including time and cost estimates.

Coakley Brothers are pleased to now offer you a climate-controlled self-storage facility for you to store your valuables. If you need space to store your items while you wait for your new home or apartment to be ready, or just need to free up space, we have the size storage area that you need. Visit the Stadium Self Storage website to learn why storing in a climate-controlled environment is the preferred method of storing all your valuables.

Choose Your Move


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 have developed a business model to protect you from these traps.
Your Move Specialist will 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 that pertains specifically to your quantity, fragility, and size of your possessions, access to your quarters, assistance with packing items, and artwork, and extent of placement upon delivery. 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 packing your entire house to simply moving boxes and furniture that you prepared on your own. Whatever your moving needs, we are here 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. New hires receive thorough training and mentoring from experienced moving employees. In addition to your Move Specialist, each crew has a Lead Man for your point of service and questions.

Coakley Brothers are bonded and insured. In the event you have a question following your move, the moving Specialist and our Service department will work with you to expedite a complete response.

What People are 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 have 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.
