We moved from Evanston to the UK in the summer 2015 and after 3 quotes chose Pickens Kane. Our contacts were Matt Buckley and in the office - email/phone - Sallie Pikrone. Our experience with them both was excellent, they were delightful - friendly, patient while remaining professional. Moving is a frazzling time and Matt talked us thru the process clearly and inspired total confidence. He gave us good advice on volume/weight/pricing trade offs and was pretty accurate when all was done. Sallie was very resposive to subsequent queeries and kept us up to date thru the whole process. The team who came to pack and ship came at the time agreed, were fast and efficient and courteous. We were not asked to pay in advance but only when the shipment had been collected and the estimate firmed up. They were not the least expensive quote but not by a lot and I would not hesitate to heartily recommend these folks and indeed have done. A small warning to others, the slight sting in the tail came in the UK where the delivery company assigned to take over when the shipment arrived were less than helpful. They seemed to have no understanding of, or particularly interest in issues of delivering to city locations where access could be retricted. The actual delivery drivers indicated this was often a major problem about which not much was ever done by the UK company. So many thanks, and much appreciatinon Matt, Sallie and your teams.
I could not ask for more from a moving company. They are extremely professional, quick and efficient. Matt and Sallie were both easy to work with and explained everything to me. They were in constant contact with me to ensure I am informed on the whereabouts of my shipment and the quality of the delivery service. I highly recommend them!
We received great service from Pickens Kane and Allied International for our move from Chicago to Sydney, Australia. Matt Buckley was outstanding: we were not sure how much of our things we would ship at the time of the shipping estimate, so Matt gave us multiple hypothetical quotes for what different weights and volumes would cost. Other moving services seemed reluctant to do this. The final price based on actual weight and volume even ended up being less than what we expected. Overall, Matt and Sallie both did a great job at communicating and organizing everything.
Even though I decided not to move my furniture, the suggestions I got from Matt at Pickens-Kane Chicago were extremely helpful. His professionalism and knowledge are outstanding. I am now confident that I made the right move because of Matt's help
Excellent service to move my home stuff from Chicago to Mexico. Professional all the way. Their instructions were specific and my stuff was handled very well and picked up and delivered right on time and with lots of care. I am very pleased with their service and highly recommend them.
I moved from Chicago to Japan, and had about three weeks' notice to find a mover for all my stuff. Pickens-Kane, and specifically Matt, were nothing short of exceptional. His estimate was professional (and pretty much dead on), he explained the logistics in an easy to understand way, and they handled all the paperwork. The shipment made it even sooner than anticipated. Everything showed up, nothing broken, everything smooth sailing. Highly recommended. Fantastic!
The most UNSTRESSFUL experience ever! We moved from Chicago to Idaho and our furniture arrived exactly when they said and was handled with great care. I could not have asked for a better experience or a better moving crew. Our contact person, Marni, constantly kept us informed at to what was going on! A GREAT COMPANY !

Pickens-Kane helped me move our belongings from Chicago to Oslo,Norway.It was a pleasure to deal with this company from beginning to end. Matthew gave me the initial info about the company and explained the process of the move, he was very thorough and straight forward,he made me feel confident about choosing P-K. Both he and Sallie kept me well informed throughout the planning and the actual move, Matthew observed some of the actual packing.I enjoyed working both with him and the men doing the packing. As the team here in Oslo unpacked our belongings,I realized what a great job the P-K packers had done, I was very impressed by the quality and the care they had shown. I like to thank the whole team for making this transport of our things feel like a very pleasant experience.
I am so happy with the Pickens-Kane packers and movers! They were fantastic. This morning, I was super stressed out about the move but they came in and packed practically everything up and took my stress away. We didn't get much sleep the night before. was really impressed with their speed, skill, and professionalism. The air shipment came in at exactly 500 lbs and we were able to put in everything we wanted. I'm really amazed at how they took away the bulk of my stress in one day!’ A big thank you to Pickens-Kane for the job well done! Regards,
