SCHLEP MISSION

Schlep exists to ensure everyone can depend on at least one neighbor.

What services do you provide to the public?

Schlep swoops in to provide last mile logistics, large item delivery, and heavy lifting to businesses and individuals.

How does your business get involved in your community?

Through partnerships with local nonprofits like the Chicago Community ToolBank and The Primo Center, Schlep provides pro bono hauling so that service projects go off without a hitch and large item donations get to their intended recipients.

Unique

What makes your business stand out from the others?

Schlep is more than just a hauling service. We thoughtfully connect trained, friendly professionals – who care about schlepping your items with care – to local businesses and neighbors who need help with their heavy lifting.

Is there anything you offer that no one else does?

Schlep serves this niche in the local logistics space with a smile, top-quality care, empathetic customer service and same-day capacity. We understand handling large and awkward items takes experience and a guaranteed level of care. With full-time employees and the insurance to back our guarantee, Schlep is able to offer quality 100% of the time.

How We Found Eachother

What makes a good partnership with your collaborators?

Trust and Listening. When partnering, we find the best collaborators are those who trust the services we provide. They trust that we will provide quality. They trust that when we don’t we’ll provide solutions. And they’ll listen to know exactly the service we provide and how it can support them and their clients

Why did you think FLATS® was a good partnership?

FLATS proves a great partnership for Schlep as in the real estate world, there are truly a lot of “moving pieces.” And when that becomes literal, Schlep is here to provide the heavy lifting and transport.

Past/Present/Future

What made the last collaboration event/organization with FLATS successful?

Being a part of #FLATSproject makes sense for Schlep. Everybody needs Schlep – and businesses need Schlep even more frequently. So offering our local hauling service to the winning small business provides one more layer for an easy launch in the newly opened Lawrence House.

Are there any events/organizations coming up that you want to plug into your page?

Schlep works closely with Chicago-based interior designers (Brynn Olson), furniture boutiques (District, Scout, Modern Cooperative and Interior Define) and storage facilities (East Bank Storage and The Lock Up) to provide our customers with a variety of choices when buying, selling, storing or schlepping their large and awkward possessions. In addition, for full relocation and moving services, we partner with our friends Move-tastic!
