    I must say the experience I had with Mile High Van Lines was the smoothest experience I’ve had with a moving company … Every employee that helped was very respectful and polite. When my items arrived they unwrapped everything for me and placed it where I wanted.

      The company came recommended by friends. I was disappointed. When booking the agent was friendly and personable. Pointed out differences between them and a moving company broker. I told them upfront I was VERY budget conscious. I was told, "Don't worry. We will work with you to keep it in your budget." I was warned about "other" companies underbidding and then the price being much higher on the day of the move, when it's too late to rebook or you need to move right then. Well, that's exactly what happened. The day of the move it suddenly was $1200 more! When I mentioned I was told they would work with me, NOTHING. Just told, "You're over the space. We have to charge you. But, we will hold your things 30 days." THEY DO NOT ACCEPT CREDIT CARD PAYMENTS for pickup and delivery only cash or cashier's checks.

      Items were left behind that I had to try and pack in my personal vehicle. Making a crowded cross country move even more uncomfortable. At the time of loading, I was told numerous times, "I'm not taking advantage of you." This made me feel the exact opposite. Why would you feel you had to tell me that if in truth you weren't? However, they arrived quickly. Quicker than I did so, I guess this is a positive.

      Just a warning to others, even with COVID, insist on an in person bid. Don't rely on just a moving checklist. Have them quote extra large boxes. (Supposedly, this was the reason for the increase.) I even shared with them other quotes so they could help me with comparing. Moving is very stressful. Especially, when you are by yourself. This added days of extra stress and anxiety trying to figure out how to come up with an additional $1200 during a pandemic and the Holidays. I have a storage unit I need moved this Summer, I told them upfront there could be a 2nd job. Well, there will not be for this company.

      DO NOT HIRE MILE HIGH VAN LINES. Run as fast as you can away from this company. Also, this is NOT a local Colorado company. They're allegedly based in FL, so their name is just a ruse. Justin ** was our rep and was super friendly and easy to communicate with while he was trying to get our business. Since we've had complaints, he's suddenly not as accessible, certainly not empathetic. The move-OUT was fine. No major complaints there, aside from them wildly underestimating how much space we'd need and instead of sending a second truck after the first was full, they spent about 3 hours returning the truck to their warehouse, unpacking it, and then returning with the same truck for the second load. It was strange and certainly made a long moving day even longer. (Even one of the crewman commented on how little sense it made).

      The move-IN was awful. It began a day before they were set to arrive, I started receiving texts reminding us we would need to pay the second half of the total once the movers arrived or they would refuse delivery. (Also worth noting: they ONLY accept cash or money orders-crazy inconvenient). Then suddenly I was getting texts saying we would actually owe MORE than the original total we were given. When I asked why, he simply told me to call a 1-800 number, so I did. The man I spoke to admitted that he had no idea why were being charged more than the original total: “All I can figure is it’s for extra packing material, sorry I don’t have any more info than that.” We we were essentially put into a position of having to fork over more money than originally agreed upon because these guys were holding our things hostage until we paid them.

      Regarding the actual move-in, so much went wrong but I’ll highlight the most egregious: Soon after the move began, we had 6 random dudes show up here asking about a Craigslist post. It’s fine if they’re subcontractors, but these guys looked and acted like they literally just walked in off the street. No masks, no gloves. One of them was here for all of 10 minutes, unboxing and checking out all our stuff before he got in his truck and took off. Another guy cut himself and sprayed blood all over the walls of our hallway. They had no first aid kits or supplies so we had to dig through our boxes to find something for him. The “driver” and apparent foreman of this job pretended to only speak a handful of words of English, including “me just driver.” He definitely didn’t mention that he crashed into one of our trees and knocked an entire limb down.

      Nothing was reassembled — we’re missing hardware on our daughter’s bed and missing ALL of it for our kitchen table. When the foreman was asked why nothing was put together, in his broken English he answered with “Not our job!” Only 2 guys actually asked where anything went — there’s random/wrong boxes in every room, all very clearly labeled. They left one of our large televisions just laying on our disassembled sectional couch, and another screen down on a wood and metal coffee table. Our antique radio console is laying on its side with a leg torn off and another hanging by a thread. A corner was totally broken off of a solid wood bookcase. Our antique chair is missing casters from the 2 back legs. Laser printer was in pieces and now not functional. Boxes clearly labeled "fragile" were clearly thrown around; everything was wrapped in bubble wrap and delicate collectors items still arrived broken.

      3 or 4 boxes full expensive books and photo albums were absolutely drenched — so sopping wet they fell apart as one of the guys tried to bring it inside, all of the books in them destroyed, as if the boxes were just left in the rain for a few hours at some point during the move. One of our desks was completely broken in half — the only connecting support piece from one side of the L to the other was ripped off and snapped in the middle. Now unusable. The crew dropped trash EVERYWHERE, and when we asked about it, the driver/foreman laughs and said “you buy packing, you get trash.” (This guy laughed at absolutely everything, even when we were very obviously unamused; it made for some incredibly awkward and maddening encounters).

      Every single other moving company we’ve hired in the past has not only been courteous enough to take boxes to the right rooms and re-assemble furniture, but clean up after themselves and take their trash with them when they left. We inevitably spent more than a month of weeknights and weekends reassembling our furniture, and actually moving boxes of our stuff to the right rooms before we could even begin to unpack. This was basically a half dozen parolees and drunks dump our damaged stuff and take off with 4k+ of our money, without even attempting to finish the job and worse, displayed absolutely zero empathy regarding all that went wrong.

      For a $9k job, their idea of making it right is offering us $300 and a signed statement saying we can’t hold them any further liable. Just to be clear, that's about 3% of nine grand. (Oh, and if we want that $300 we have to supply receipts or proof of purchase of all of our damaged items, as if that's a reasonable request). We responded saying that wasn’t acceptable and now they’re ignoring us.

        "Not good" is an overestimate. In its own documentation, Mile High Van Lines (MHVL) declares that if the load-weight is under the estimate, they will refund the difference. The load-weight for my dad's stuff was way under the estimate (an estimate the movers insisted on re-writing and increasing on the day of the move!), but MHVL would not refund a difference of about a thousand dollars. We took MHVL to Denver Small Claims Court and won. The judge ordered MHVL to pay the difference (along with court and travel expenses), but as of this posting they have refused. This behavior and more (inaccurate delivery times, damaged goods, etc.) inclines me to think that MHVL is in it for the money; they are, as was said elsewhere, "scam artists."

        This will be the first bad review I have ever written. As a business owner myself, I understand that things can go wrong and if handled correctly, your customer will be satisfied. However, with Mile High Van Lines, this was not the case. The Senior Moving Consultant, Justin, was an awesome salesman. He definitely won me over and sold me a bag of goods. Promising that he would be there “every step of the way”, gave me his cell, so we could text or talk. He was there every step, up until he got his payment. Then, crickets. I had issue after issue. I tried to get a hold of him. Still nothing. In the end, we got stuck with a bill and service that was not promised. So fair warning, go SOMEWHERE else! Let me be the last sucker that Mile High Van Lines fool.

        Wanted to finish unpacking my boxes before I wrote a review. For someone like myself who has had to use professional moving services exactly 3 times in the last 3 years I can guarantee this has been by far the most professional and easy to work with company I have ever dealt with. Joshua (sales rep) did an over the phone walkthrough estimate of how much space I would need according to the items I was listing. Provided a quote of $5,600 for my 3 bedroom house. We agreed I would have my boxes and bins ready and the guys would take care of disassembling all the big pieces of furniture as well as protecting them with pads and blankets. Josh was always as he promised "one call away from me" and I wanna thank him for always picking up as well as providing an accurate upfront price.

        I also want to thank Sergey and his team for doing everything so fast and taking such good care of my goods. Tom and Justin in customer service were also super helpful and kept communicating with me all the way through making it easy for me at the delivery as well. Top notch service from these guys makes me wish I would of found out about Mile High Van Lines for my two first moves. Overall, great service. I will definitely be recommending this company to all my friends and family.

        Mile High Van Lines should NOT be in business! This has been one of the most HORRIBLE experiences I've ever experienced! We feel totally violated by this company in every way a moving family could experience.

        1. Terrible Communication from everyone
        2. Storm delay of 2 days but I had to spend hours trying to find when the movers would arrive.
        3. Movers (2) were from the country of Georgia with terrible English making things very difficult to communicate.
        4. Brought only a 26' Truck and they had to go to the warehouse to unload and come back the following day.
        5. They were however very hard workers and packaged and wrapped furniture etc very well.
        6. I was informed our original estimate of $4800 was wrong and they supposedly accounted for $3480 which now was a total of $8,280.00 to deliver ONLY 588 miles...
        7. I think we were totally over charged!!!
        8. Our possession were picked up on October 30th and somewhat delivered on November 10th, which was totally unacceptable as we had to sleep on the floor for over a week with no furniture.
        9. Again NO communication from movers when delivery would be made even after multiple calls to confirm.
        10. On Sunday November 10th we get a call that the movers would be arriving approximately 3 PM...
        11. Movers determined they could not get an 18 wheeler into our sub division.
        12. We had to pay $1000.00 more for a shuttle truck which finally showed up at 7PM Sunday evening.
        13. Unloading was completed about 10PM Sunday Night with multiple issues involved.
        14. These movers (2) could also speak little English and communication was impossible.
        15. They tried to deliver the wrong table top belonging to our Oak Dining room set, which is still missing.
        16, My Craftsman Tool Chest was missing but found and delivered about 2 weeks later.
        17. They deliver a marble piece to our (still missing) Antique Hall Tree?
        17. Both my wife and I have tried dozens of times to communicate with these people only to hear we are working on it! NOT acceptable.
        18. My wife tried to reach a Bill at 970-818-2877 who is in management of some kind and he told here twice to ** OFF as he was walking his dog! Again totally unacceptable.
        19. Again we feel totally violated and NOT going away from this terrible experience until we get compensated for our losses and anguish!
        20. We have a moving cost of $9280 + Damaged or Lost amounts of $5200 plus $10,000 for mental anguish creating a total of $24,480.00 we expect reimbursed from Mile High Van Lines.

        21. We have our Law Firm standing by waiting for me to advise them of the action taken by Mile High Van Lines and yourselves.

        Very Expensive. Poor Communication. Lousy Customer Service. Wrong Information. Staff were not knowledgeable about their service/pricing. We recently made a move from Washington to Arizona and used Mile High Van Lines to move our belongings. There were so many mistakes and additional charges that our final cost was twice what the original quote was for. The guy who gave us the quote gave us the wrong information on multiple phone calls. The estimator didn't know what he was talking about and blew off our information, so the estimate was way off. I've sent 3 emails to their customer service department and have never received an email back. Their customer service is non-existent. I would NEVER use them again and would never, ever recommend them to anyone. The only reason I gave them 1 star is because I couldn't give them 0.

        This past October my wife and I were planning a interstate move and started researching for a moving company. We entertained a few bids and selected Mile High Van-lines out of Denver Co. based on very favorable Consumer Affairs reviews. Well, our experience was less than favorable. Our nightmare begins November 7th with the actual move itself. To begin with we were told that there would be 4 to 5 individuals to wrap and pack all furniture and unload all our belongings on moving/delivery day. When that day arrived we only had 2 men who worked all day wrapping all of our furniture and loaded the first truck from 11am until 9 pm. The next day, November 8th they arrived around noon when we were told they would arrive at 8:30.

        As they were taking apart the beds and furniture I asked them (as I did my Mile High representative when arranging our move, and it’s in the contract) if all the furniture would be reassembled once delivered in our new home and was told it was part of their job and part of the contract. At around 2 pm another individual shows up - after we called dispatch - to help with the packing and at around 7pm they finished loading the second truck.

        In the meantime, I’m working with my representative on a delivery day and time and we both agree that they would deliver our goods the following Tuesday November 12th and that our goods would stay on the trucks in storage until delivery day. On November 9th I contacted my representative to change the delivery date and he was very accommodating and we rescheduled for November 14th. What we were never told was that all our goods would be removed from the trucks and placed in storage and reloaded for delivery. On November 12th I called to confirmed our delivery day of November 14 and was told delivery would not happen until either the 18th or 19th.

        On delivery day which was on November 17th only two individuals showed up to unload the truck and they arrived at 10 am. At around 3 pm another individual showed up to help (at our request) but they were so far behind that my son and I had to jump in and help. In addition, none of the furniture was put together and the movers finally quit around 10 pm. At 6pm the driver of the semi came into our home demanding the movers finish so that he could leave. He was very angry and demanded the inventory list when a third of our belongings were still on the truck. He was yelling and very belligerent and my wife had to ask him to leave the house.

        This company did not perform as they said they would. We are seniors and not in good physical shape and we had to reassemble all the furniture ourselves. They are in breach of contract and I would not recommend this moving company to anyone planning a intrastate move. Several pieces of our furniture were damaged and I suspect that happened when they off-loaded and re-loaded for delivery. After we were settled in we contacted the company and explained our frustration.

        To our surprise they were not willing to compensate us for their breach of contract and only offered us $200 for my family’s hard work helping with the unloading. The administrator called my wife a liar when she told her they never put one thing together and the administrator said “how could they be there that long and not finish”. We still had furniture wrapped in blankets and shrink wrapping, tables, beds etc all apart. They did not follow the contract agreement after paying them almost $13,000. They did not keep their word on any part of what was agreed to and are in breach of the contract. We were devastated with this whole process. I’ve had a heart attack and two strokes and shouldn’t have done all the lifting and moving of furniture. We are not finished with this matter. Please note that all the workers were outstanding and this review is concerning management only. A very unpleasant experience.

        Worst service. Messed up on delivery date and pick up date - delivered on a holiday without confirmation, sent only one person to deliver the whole lot - and we did not overload the personnel. Cash vs Card delivery details - messy. Please avoid the unprofessional handling,

        ITX LLC dba Mile High Van Lines, USDOT #1782839, stated in its "Binding Moving Estimate" that "if the load weight/cubic ft. [of a move] is less than the estimate, the customer will receive a credit for the difference. The load weight of our move was less than the estimate (witnessed and documented), but Mile High Van Lines has refused to refund the difference of $1,089. / On the day of the move, the actual movers insisted that the "Binding Moving Estimate" was too low even though a careful review of the things to be moved was given to the "Senior Moving Consultant."

        The movers insisted on rewriting the estimate, increasing the load weight by 329 cu. ft. Our house had already been sold and we had not choice but to agree. I contacted the "Customer Service Manager," and was assured that we only needed to record the weight upon delivery, inform them, and a refund would issued. We did this, but Mile High Van Lines refused to issue a credit. In addition, we were never given a copy of the new "Binding Moving Estimate," the "Bill of Lading," or the "Home Goods Descriptive Inventory." I would avoid ITX LLC and its subsidiaries Colorado Transport Company, Presidential Moving, LLC and, of course, Mile High Van Lines.

        Mile High Van Lines response


        The revised estimate was signed prior to us loading the truck. We're sorry you're unhappy, but the volume is the volume and you signed up to pay for your volume. We appreciate your business.
