We are having a visual inspection scheduled for Coakley Brothers DOT #609018. When we called Allied Vans, they gave us his number. Has there been any problem with Coakley Brothers? Thanks!

Coakley Bros is a very old moving company, dating from 1888.

From their website

    (414) 278-7060
    400 South 5th Street, Milwaukee, Wisconsin 53204

From reveals the following information:

  • Trucks: 14.
  • Phones: (414) 278-7060
  • Office location: 400 South 5th Street, Milwaukee, Wisconsin 53204
  • The information in the report indicates missing authority and insurance, but since they are an active agent of Allied they operate under the license and insurance of Allied, so there is no problem with that
  • Inspections section shows the following statistics:

From Better Business Bureau:

  • Not members of the BBB

  • Based on BBB files, this company has a satisfactory record.
  • Number of complaints processed in the last 36 months: 3. Complaints issues: Customer Service Issues (1), Credit or Billing Disputes (1), and Service Issues (1). The complaints were resolved.
    From other sources:

    • mentioned few times, very good reviews.

    • no mentioning of that company on
    • no mentioning of that company on

    • Other Sources: no other mentioning of that company found elsewhere.


    I would recommend hiring this company. They have a remarkable history of moving people in Wisconsin for over a hundred years, a large fleet of trucks and are agents of major van lines.

    To stay on a safe side follow the guidelines in our Moving Guide regarding closing deals with movers and understanding your estimate, and make sure you insist on having an on-site visual and getting a binding estimate (but that should be done regardless of who you choose for your move), and insure your valuable items on

    Good luck with your move,
