    These movers (legal name is Chicago Top Movers) got my stuff from Alabama July 13 2020 - and as of today, I have no idea when they will deliver. They were contracted by a broker company out of Ft Lauderdale. I have called several times and left messages and no one has returned my call or email - to let me know what the status is.

    All I am looking for is some realistic estimate of when my household items will be delivered. If someone will call or email me it would help. The move was distressing enough and now not knowing where my things are or when it will be delivered is more troubling - and I am just looking for someone from the company to contact me - and deliver my items.

    Somebody recommended this company for my move and I shared this with a friend of mine and he confirmed these are reputable guys. I called one of their sales representatives. This guy was polite and willing to answer all of my questions and I like to ask so many questions. On the move day the guys showed up 30 min later but the supervisor personally apologized for the inconvenience and compromised to move quickly. From that point on they were so quick and careful. Also the delivery was just as promised. For they are trustworthy I recommend them.

    This was our first time using these amazing movers I was extremely impressed about their service. These guys were really helpful and made my move much easier. I was skeptic in using a moving company due to bad experiences I had in the past, but this one broke those hang-ups and now I feel confident in hiring them again.

    The representative and crew made my move smoothly and without issues. I was pleased about their great care. They were so careful when loading and unloading. Their punctuality was one of the aspects that I liked the most. Very reputable company.

    I knew my move was not going to be an easy one since we owned a big house and a lot of fragile things and ome of those things are large and expensive. I told the guys to be very careful and they paid attention to my instructions attentively. They were so careful that I could not do it any better. I recommend them.

    Frauds and thieves. They will damage your belongings, open boxes and go through your items. Most of your items will be damaged. They use fake names, don't answer the phone, and may hold your items hostage for more money. They are terrible at their jobs and very unprofessional. DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY. You will regret it. They are in violation of Dept of Transportation and Federal Trade Commission laws. Several customers have had to call the police, involve lawyers, and report their activities to federal authorities.

    This company will quote you one price and double the amount when they pick up your stuff, and you literally have no other choice but to pay. They will give you a hard time about using a credit card because they want to take your cash and run. They will show you a contract online with the first quote, and when you try to email it to yourself, it will disappear. After they take your stuff, they will keep it for a very long time. Never delivering it on the day they say they will (because they have 21 days from the scheduled date to deliver, but they don't communicate with you the entire time). They will NEVER pick up the phone. You will have to try several different phone numbers with various area codes to try and trick them into answering the phone. I left them a horrible review on Facebook and only then did they finally communicate with us. Last week they threatened that they would hold the items hostage until the review was taken down. I took the review down, but put one back up when the "customer service agent" we spoke to had their phone number disconnected. They have 0 days as of today to deliver without it being a violation of DOT standards. We did contact the police and made a police report regarding this whole situation. Apparently we aren't the only ones who have done this. If you value your time, money or possessions, please use another company.

    Bulls Moving is a “rogue” moving company that attempts to defraud customers by providing on-line estimates without in-person inspection of goods, withholding contracts upon loading, failure to provide bills of lading to customers, as well as not providing inventory of goods at loading – many of their practices are in violation of Department of Transportation Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration regulations, as well as laws governed by the Federal Trade Commission (more on these actions below).

    Bulls Moving is one of several companies registered in Illinois under Chicago Top Movers, Inc. and registered to Gagik Hovhanisyan (also, Hovhannisyan), and run by his son, Rafael Ohanesyan (also, Okanesyan). From July 2019 to July 2020, the company has changed their name four times – they have operated as Chicago Top Movers, Bulls Moving, Platinum Moving and Storage, and Allianz Van Lines (inactive). Previously, they also operated under the names A1 Moving and Spark Moving and Storage (dissolved January 2020). Operating authority for several of the ‘companies’ has been involuntarily revoked by the FMCSA. Several recent contracts with the company were entered during a period where the company DID NOT HAVE FEDERAL AUTHORITY TO OPERATE. The websites for these companies are templates created in 2020, and the sites are registered to a company created by Rafael Ohanesyan called SIMPLE SAVE, LLC in Brooklyn, NY.

    Bulls Moving Information
    US DOT Licence #: 3312217
    Address: 3909 Grove Ave, Gurnee, IL 60031
    Owner/Operator: Rafael Ohanesyan
    Phone #: 616-777-7770

    During 2019, Bulls Moving received 3 federal complaints, and in 2020, the number of complaints has climbed to 7. There are two complaints of deceptive business practices, five pickup and delivery complaints, four hostage complaints, and five instances of shipment documents and estimates/charges complaints.

    Most of the telephone numbers and answering services are rerouted and hidden behind the veil of VOIP service Bandwidth.Com.

    The company “employees” operate using fake names – sales agents will pass you from one person to another, then they will stop communicating. Their “customer service” department is also fake, and you never know who you’re dealing with. The company’s MO is to show up late to load your furniture, usually in a Penske rental truck, and have you sign their contract. The contract will likely NOT have a revised estimate based on inspection. Instead, they may increase the price of the move on the spot, and charge high prices for boxes/shipping supplies. They may not provide a Bill of Lading OR a signed inventory upon loading, which is in violation of federal FMCSA regulations. They will also leave the Valuation page blank, which upon certain damage to your goods, affects how you can file a claim with the company. In addition, they will leave their portions of the contract unsigned, and attempt to sign them upon delivery…if you get your items. All of the contractual manipulations may add up to contract fraud.

    Once you turn over your belongings to the company, they will hold them as long as they can. After 30 days, they may attempt to charge warehouse fees. They are very difficult to get in touch with once they pick up your belongings, and will screen your calls or simply not answer. They will promise week after week that they’re working on the delivery, promise loading and delivery dates, and then go silent. They pay their moving foremen around 8% of the total move price, so the “representatives” you’re dealing with are trying to increase the price as much as possible to earn their commission. And the drivers are paid about $150-$250.

    Upon delivery, they will demand cash and contract signatures before unloading. In many cases, they will open most if not all of the boxes before delivery, untape them, go through belongings (including clothes) and then retape the boxes. Electronics will likely be broken; furniture unusable. The company may hold your furniture hostage, or threaten to reroute the shipment, if you do not agree to their deceptive practices.

    Their business practices may fall under the legal category of negligence, and in many cases times, gross negligence, which is defined as a “conscious and voluntary disregard of the need to use reasonable care, which is likely to cause foreseeable grave injury or harm to persons, property, or both.”

    Bulls Moving, and the other associated companies, are committing a crime under Federal Trade Commission 15 U.S. Code § 45 by paying for fake 5-star reviews on Yelp and other moving websites – the company has posted publicly advertising payment for reviews. The FTC has the power to stop and penalize parties “using unfair or deceptive acts or practices in or affecting commerce.” The company is likely in violation of the Consumer Review Fairness Act by strong-arming customers into not leaving negative reviews.

    Report any fraudulent activity to the corresponding federal authorities.

    I've moved with this company twice. This time I used their storage service which monthly cost is pretty cheap. They took their time to move everything preventing the items to get broken or damaged. The movers were kind and respectful, they packed and wrapped everything. I did not have any damaged items not even the ones that were on storage.

    I called these guys thanks to their reviews I found online. When I contacted them they sent me the quote quickly, which was pretty good for my budget. They did absolutely everything for me and I know my move was not an easy one. Their insurance included the transportation costs plus the goods cost. They were right in time, also respectful and careful with my stuff. I’m pleased with their service.

    I received very good service from these guys. They were responsible and hard working all the time. I liked their brand new trucks and tools for disassembling furniture. Also the insurance policy is very good. I did not have time to pack and wrap things up due to my job, but they did it for me since I had the option to include it in my quote. The next day after pickup they contacted me to arrange last details. They showed up in time, no problems at all. I really appreciate their service.

    It was my first time moving by myself and I was concerned about finding honest and capable movers. Despite my lack of expertise I was billed what was quoted initially and price was quite fair. Also the crew was able to disassemble and reassemble two large furniture pieces quickly and without hassle. These guys are really trustworthy.

    It was very cold the day of the move which makes it harder for movers to work, however they loaded and unloaded according to their plan and were so careful and nice to us all the time. It’s great to find people that really love what they do. I will recommend these guys for sure.

    I liked their honesty and professionalism. My old dining table got damaged during the move, I noticed it was damaged when unloading it, thus I told Rob and he agreed to repair it since movers were responsible for that. They took the table to fix it and then returned it as promised. I really appreciated their honesty and compliance.

    These guys exceeded my expectations. First off, our sales representative assessed our move. He asked precise questions that we hadn’t thought of and helped us to have an accurate quote. I recommend their packaging solutions, they’re pretty careful handling all kinds of stuff. I was with the crew the whole time and they handle everything as fragile. I was just impressed with their service.

    Unfortunately, we have had to move 3 times in less than 5 years. Each time we have used these guys. The first time we were so delighted with their service that we used them again and again they always do such an amazing job. Our representative understands the stress of moving and he always do the needful to make us feel at ease. So moving so many times with them has given me confidence to say that these guys will take good care of my move.

    This company took all my stress away and assumed all the responsibility of my move. I just needed to call them once and then they sent me the quote quickly which was the lowest one that I got among several other companies. I confirmed the booking for the next day since I needed to move urgently, and as promised the next day the guys showed up. They handled everything carefully and efficiently. I highly recommend this company.
