About Allied Van Lines

Allied Van Lines works with an extensive network of movers across the country to facilitate moves almost anywhere. For local or interstate moves, it’s best to request a quote for the most accurate pricing estimate — just provide some details about your move and contact information.

If you like the quote, an Allied relocation assistant will help you plan and schedule your move. At this point, you'll have the opportunity to request additional services, such as storage in transit. Keep in mind that Allied requires a virtual or in-home inspection before your moving date. Once all your belongings are loaded up, you can track your shipment online or through an app.

Allied Van Lines moving costs

Allied Van Lines’ costs can vary greatly depending on where you live, where you’re going and how much stuff you have.

According to recent reviews, long-distance moves with packing services start between $2,000 and $5,000. The average cost for a cross-country move is $3,500 (based on an average weight of 7,000 pounds and a traveling distance of 1,000 miles).

The total weight of your shipment is one of the biggest price factors, so the estimate could be inaccurate if you don’t account for heavy items. Allied Van Lines has additional charges for certain services, such as full-service packing and car and boat transport.

Allied Van Lines moving services

Some services with Allied Van Lines are included in the upfront estimated price, such as loading and shipment tracking. The company can provide boxes and supplies for do-it-yourself packing, or you can hire a team to do it all, usually at an hourly rate. Some customers opt for fragile-only packing instead of full-service packing to reduce costs.

In addition to local and long-distance household moving, packing and supplies, Allied offers the following services:

  • Corporate relocation
  • Cross-country moving
  • Interstate moving
  • International moving
  • Storage for in-transit items and long-term storage
  • Furniture disassembly and reassembly
  • Auto and boat transport

Allied Van Lines FAQ

Is Allied Van Lines a broker?

Does Allied Van Lines have insurance?

Yes, Allied Van Lines includes basic liability coverage with every move. Under this coverage, if the company loses or damages your belongings, it reimburses you 60 cents per pound per article. This means that if your mover damages your 30-pound TV that’s worth $1,000, you would receive only $18. You can also purchase full valuation coverage, which reimburses you the actual value of items, through Allied’s Extra Care Protection plan.

Does Allied Van Lines offer packing services?

Yes, Allied Van Lines offers full-service packing, fragile-item-only packing and supplies for DIY packing.

Is Allied Van Lines a good moving company?

Overall, we think Allied Van Lines is a good choice for most moves. Prices can be a little high, but this isn’t necessarily a negative — we tend to be wary of unusually low prices that indicate a company might be cutting corners. It’s worth it for those willing to spend a little more to make sure their movers are seasoned professionals — especially when moving over long distances.

Good communication. Movers professional and careful. Still haven’t unpacked everything. I have someone else’s ironing board and reported it. I am mostly disappointed in the process for replacing a broken piece of glass in a cabinet. Accidents happen but the repair process should not be so burdensome on the customer. We could have taken the cabinet door it to a glass shop and had it fixed within a week. I find your form annoying and having to take and send photos and waiting for some adjuster to show up and verify what the driver had already documented before he left is annoying. We’re left with a cabinet in our great room that has all the charm of a missing tooth. Thank you for the opportunity to give feedback.

    As a customer who has moved numerous times my recent experience with Coleman Allied from the estimate to the delivery was top notch and the best ever! The Customer service was prompt and solved all issues with excellent solutions! The driver and his wife were excellent and chose the most energetic, polite, strong, careful teams for pickup and delivery. No issues. And due to an unknown driveway factor, provided a shuttle at delivery w/o charge. I cannot say enough good things about the helpful people who truly understand the tension us movers are experiencing. Wonderful people who are professional all the way! Oh yes, and they wouldn't let me help them with anything! If you are moving, get the best with Coleman. And by the way, their prices are also competitive. Thank you for a wonderful and blessed move to everyone at Coleman Allied!

    We would like to thank Allied/Bayshore Moving from Newark, Delaware for the exceptional service they provided and all of the employees who assisted us with our move from NJ to St. Augustine, FL. We first met Billy **who came to our house to provide the estimate for moving all of our belongings. He arrived on time and was very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. He gave us suggestions on how to handle this big move as well as recommendations on some ways we could save ourselves some money. We obviously got other estimates, but Allied was the best price and we felt most comfortable trusting them with our cross-country move.

    When moving day arrived, ( I apologize because I don’t have the driver or helpers names) the driver arrived early and began to prepare and itemized our belongings. Once the other workers arrived they began to load the boxes we had packed as well as they also packed specific items that were prearranged such as beds, mirrors and fragile items in the china cabinet. They loaded a two story house into the truck in under 6 hours. All of these workers were friendly, polite and were hard workers. Since our new home was not completed yet, our belongings had to be stored for approximately just under 2 months. Allied was able to provide storage at their warehouse in Delaware until we were ready to take delivery for a reasonable price.

    Prior to move in day, I was contacted by Nila ** (Customer Experience Team) numerous times, who coordinated our move date. She was extremely helpful, friendly and caring understanding how stressful this move was for us. The day prior to move in day, I was contacted by the driver - Luis **. He called me to let me know what time he would be arriving as well as answering any questions I had. Once he arrived the next morning, he was on time and was met by his two assistants Charles and Angelo. We could not have asked for a better crew!! These guys were the BEST!! They were polite, friendly and extremely hard workers who unloaded all of our belongings in just over 4 hours including setting up our 3 beds and kitchen table. Moving was definitely a stressful time but all of the employees who assisted us through this process helped to make this process much easier to manage. We would definitely recommend Allied/Bayshore Moving.

    Thank you.

    I recently utilized Allied for a cross country move that had short notice. The representative who came to my home to discuss the service and review the contents being moved was professional and detailed in the process. The coordinator maintained good communication throughout. Before, during and after the move. The drivers also provided good communication throughout. The teams who loaded and unloaded and placed my household goods were professional and showed care in handling the items. I have moved many times in my life, and this was by far the smoothest and the only move that did not end up with damaged or missing items. I truly appreciate the service received, would highly recommend, and definitely will use their services again for my next move.

    This experience of moving our household goods has been one of the very best, from Jennifer at the Berger Moving location in Phoenix to the team of Ruben **,

    Gerardo Jr **, Baldemar Jr **, and Edgar ** who were very professional, took high ownership of their work and making sure our goods were safely moved into our house, without a single bump into any of the walls of our brand newly constructed house. So often, all people do is talk of the horror stories with moving companies however, this was one of the very best teams and I would highly recommend Berger/Allied to anyone moving and in need of your services. Again, thank you!!! Should you wish to contact me to discuss further, please call me at **. Respectfully, Steve **.

    I was very satisfied with the move. Had one damage to a desk. The driver Luis did a great job directing his team and responding to an unexpected fire on site which made loading difficult. We have made several moves and Allied/Carey has been very good.

Thank you for all your help. Thank you Jackie and Larry for non stop communication and keeping me updated with all the changes after loading.

    It was a great experience. Everything was packed with care and precision. All questions were answered. They were on time and worked hard and efficiently. All of our items are clearly labeled in the boxes. Boxes are very secure. I highly recommend them and would utilize their services in the future.

    This was an easy and friendly experience from start to finish. Everyone we felt with was professional, friendly and very helpful! We also had a last minute request to also move the car and Colman got straight on the job and delivered the car in great time. Noreen and Theresa were lovely to deal with and always quick to reply. A move has never been easier!
