About Burrows Moving & Storage

We are an independent professional moving and storage company located in the Rogers Park community on Chicago's north side. We are totally committed to providing our customers with top quality furniture, antique, and piano relocation services, as well as assisting with packing, hoisting, and storage needs.

We offer both local and long-distance moving services, but we primarily serve Chicago and the surrounding suburbs . In addition to the Chicagoland area, we have been serving Southern Wisconsin and Northwest Indiana for over 30 years. We also maintain a furniture storage facility which is licensed and inspected annually by the Illinois Department of Agriculture (the State regulating agency for household goods storage facilities).

An important reason so many people consider Burrows Moving Company to be one of the best moving companies in Chicago is the attitude of our management. We consider residential moving and commercial moving to be just as much a skilled-labor trade as are the plumbing, electrical, and carpentry trades.

Unskilled laborers by definition cannot possibly be good piano nor antiques movers because of the skills required to do these difficult tasks. In a major metropolitan areas, moving companies providing these kinds of high calibre services have to employ very highly-trained and experienced professionals. So we employ only the best, well-trained, skilled, and courteous professional that can be found.

​Burrows Moving Company does not and will not use unskilled help such as the casual day laborers that many moving companies in Chicago use. Our professional are so adept at good moving methods and hoisting and problem solving techniques that they are considered to be journeymen / master movers.


We equip all of our crews with late model moving vans, good, thick, clean pads, special covers and the latest and best moving and storage equipment available, including carpet shield and special runners and felt kits to fully protect newly varnished hard wood floors.


For piano moving services we provide our professionals with the proper sized grand piano skidboard, an expensive special canvas piano cover for great piano protection and the best 4 wheel piano dollies available.


For our hoisting services we use ladders and straps, block and tackle, or a device called a laddervator or we work with a highly skilled crane service.


Over the last 30+ years, Burrows has developed a great customer satisfaction rating, resulting in 60-70% of our business coming from referrals and repeat customers who return again and again.
