Professional and Efficient
"The move went really well. Both Ben and Dave were absolutely charming and so willing. I must compliment your organization on a really professional and efficient move. Moving is pretty traumatic in any event and you guys made it that much easier. Britannia was extremely helpful at all times. She was just great! Thank you for all your help, I will certainly recommend Planes to anyone I know moving."
People and Process Have Been Top Notch
“All aspects of the move have been carried out with the utmost care to detail. The people and the process have been top notch.”
The Most Professional, Personable and Polite Crew
"I just wanted to let you know everything went extremely well. My husband and I have done many moves (my mother, none), and this crew was, by far, the most professional, personable and polite crew I have ever encountered. And thank YOU for all you did to make my mom’s move so smooth!"

Of course! We are happy to store your items at a location convenient to you. Need something from storage shipped to your new home? Good news: when you store your belongings with us, we can coordinate that process for you.
Let us know! While we appreciate that price is an important factor in choosing your moving company, we recommend not buying on price alone. There are often reasons why moving companies have lower prices, and we are happy to discuss pricing to see if alternative methods of transportation are available, or adjustments to your move’s weight/volume can be made to reduce your cost to fit your budget.
Depending on your residency status at the destination country, the limitations can vary. Our team is well-versed in individual country requirements. Each country has specific rules, and we can advise you of your entitlements during our initial conversation with you.
The customs clearance process is an important piece of your relocation. Each country has different rules and regulations, and your individual residency status will influence how we help with your relocation. Our team will guide you through the process to ensure a smooth transition.
Yes, but how much protection you have and its cost to you depend upon the “valuation” option you choose – Basic Protection/ Released Value Liability (60 cents per pound per article, 30 cents per pound per article in Illinois), or Full-Value Protection based on the dollar amount you declare. Ensure that you accurately value your belongings so that you are covered appropriately. We also recommend that you speak with your insurance agent about your Home Owner’s Policy to see if you have any coverage for your belongings during a move.
Basic coverage, which is provided at no additional charge means that our maximum liability for loss or damage to any article in your shipment is 60/30 cents multiplied by the weight of the article. What does that mean? If you have a 50” flat screen TV that weighs 25 lbs. you will receive $15.15 to cover the damage. Our crews do everything they can to prevent damage to your belongings but in the rare instances where items incur damage, it is important to understand the type of coverage you have. Valuation does work a little differently if you have a local vs. a long distance move. So, if you have any additional questions, be sure to ask one of our moving experts.
