We began this family-owned business back in the 1940s, just as American families were growing and moving throughout the country.

Now, more than 60 years later, we’re one of the best moving companies in Illinois. We are proud of our staff of trained, courteous and committed individuals who continue to provide quality service, one family at a time.

Two brothers, a 1926 Hudson automobile and a readiness to move anything from a single chair to University of Illinois college students’ baggage to delivery items for Sears, Roebuck & Co. marked the beginning of Hutchcraft Van Service, Inc. back in 1946.

Today, the company launched by Orin and Gerald Hutchcraft has grown to serve Central Illinois, Western Indiana, providing regional and international moving and storage services.

We have been a United Van Lines agent since 1953 and currently operate a large fleet of more than 50 vehicles handling moves across the continental United States and Canada. For well over 40 years, we’ve been managing local corporate accounts, and pride ourselves in being among the best long distance moving companies around.

We are also charter members of the Illinois Movers’ and Warehousemen’s Association, a statewide not-for-profit trade association that helps ensure licensing and quality in the movers you choose.

There is so much to consider when it’s time to move, whether you’re just moving across town or to another part of the country. Take advantage of the easy-to-understand pricing, personalized service and storage facilities and more at Hutchcraft Van Service, Inc. serving families for more than 60 years.

Q Is it a good idea to get an estimate over the phone or via the Internet?

In all likelihood, you will find that an on-site estimate based on a physical survey
of the items that you plan on moving will be more accurate than an estimate that you
provide to your mover over the telephone or the Internet. So, unless circumstances warrant
(normally due to the time constraints of a short-notice move or because you are only shipping
a few items) think carefully before you elect to waive the required physical survey
of your shipment.

Q Will my estimate be based on the weight of my shipment?

If you are receiving a non-binding estimate, the charges that your mover assesses on your
shipment must be based on the actual weight of the shipment. Your mover may not lawfully
assess transportation charges on shipments with non-binding estimates on cubic feet, volume,
time (hourly) or on any basis other than weight. Also, the federal regulations require that
shipment weights must be determined on a state certified scale with a copy of the weigh
master’s tickets provided to you in support of the final invoice.
