what people think about us

    Cancer Treatment Centers of America would like to let you know how much we appreciate the great job Shur-Way did for us relocating 70+ people and storage from one location to another. From the very beginning with initial meeting and all the way through the project completion you and your staff were absolutely wonderful.

    During our ongoing construction and renovation here at Condell I wanted to take a minute to say thanks to you and your crew at Shur-Way for all your help.  We look forward to working with you well beyond our “dust” and will be happy to recommend you to our other facilities for their moving and storage needs.

    I have worked with Shur-Way Moving & Storage for over 20 years using them for tenant refit work, moving tenant furnishings out of their space for carpet and paint work and then moving them back in. But I also use them for my personal home from Illinois to Wisconsin.  In all cases the work went without a hitch.

    We just wanted to write a quick note to let you know how happy we were with the move; the crew worked so hard!   They were pleasant and polite and made a very long day tolerable.  Tell them not to worry; we won’t be moving for a while, but if we do, we will give you a call.   Thank you.

    I would like to take this opportunity thank you so very much for the two truckloads of invaluable provisions that Shur-Way shipped to Jefferson Parish. Your company’s efforts have touched the lives of many deserving citizens and will forever be grateful for generosity in their time of need.

    I wanted to let you know that the crew that moved me Elizabeth Gronvall, from 205 Lake Street in Libertyville, IL was incredible. They were efficient, professional, kind and speedy.  I will definitely recommend you and your company to my friends.  “Please promote them”
