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

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.

We used a moving broker to save money who turned out to be fraudulent costing us thousands of dollars and never getting our belongings out of the City of Tacoma.. After the police released our belongings, we contacted Alondra and George of Western Van & Storage who are agents for Allied Van & Storage. They treated us with courtesy and extreme professionalism with Alondra staying in contact with updates along the way. Both the Western and Allied moving crews showed very high levels of high quality customer service in handling and delivering our household goods. I give very high marks in recommending both companies if one has a moving need...

    We used this packing and moving service through Reebie and Allied Van Lines for another long distance move in 2010. Both times everything went very smoothly— from the estimate to the customer service support, to the packers and the truck driver. Reebie has been in business for many many years and so they knew to call the city of Chicago and get a parking permit for the large truck. The 2 packers took a full day to package everything in our 2400 SF town home, and then the 4 loaders, including the truck driver spent 5 hours loading everything. We are expecting to receive our stuff in California in ~1 week. I would use this company again. Highly recommend!

    Thank you Frank and Allied/Victory Van for the stress free move! My belongings were safely moved from one location to another and were well packed. The moving staff was very friendly and helpful. They set up furniture at my new home and removed the larger boxes. They carefully handled our fragile instruments and made sure everything arrived in one piece. I have moved a lot and this was the first time care was taken to wrap ALL of my furniture. Customer service was also awesome! Thank you Kylie for always getting back to me as soon as possible with answers to my questions. We really appreciate all of you!

    I would highly recommend Berger/ Allied for anyone seeking a moving company to service their moving needs. I utilized the company to help with my relocation out of state. I also needed to employ their storage services because of the complexity of my move. The Moving Coordinator Mark B** was excellent. Very professional, personable and went the extra mile to help customize my needs. The entire staff from the office personnel, primarily Rachel **, the packers & movers were very accommodating, efficient & genuinely cared about me as a customer. Giving a 5 star rating isn't sufficient to fully express my gratitude & satisfaction with the services they provided me.

    Allied is a good company, the movers/packers turned on that old school music and started packing to the music. It was three of them and they packed everything very well until it was time to unpack. I had a total of 3 televisions and they swore up and down I only had 2 but the invoice didn't lie. I had three and they didn't realize it until after they had left.

    In my kitchen I specially told the packer to pack a certain cabinet, that included all the pots and pans, to my surprise I only had the bottoms to all my pots. Well then unpacking clothes I had a few church suits, and some Jordan tennis shoes that came up missing, and some cable equipment. Man it was frightening. I had've had to pay for the equipment that was lost which would have cost me over $900. Man I talked to my consultant. We located all the everything. Someone had moved it to the other side with someone else's stuff. But glad that I knew the person they were shipping to otherwise I would've been up the creek

    My movers were awesome quick and on time. Thank you so much for being gentle with my items and moving as fast you did. I would recommend them especially the team I had today. They took good care of my items and packed them in the truck neatly.

    Move Coordinator Ashley ** did an outstanding job with getting the move scheduled and on track. Movers Chris and Mike did an exceptional job with packing and handling our belongings under stressful circumstances. Move Consultant Chris ** completely dropped the ball by not submitting our signed paperwork to the office to schedule the move despite having 19 days to do so. Ashley was remarkable in overcoming this blunder. Thank you again, Ashley!

    My fifth move was a charm. The communication throughout the process was outstanding. Kim ** was kind and accommodating and I owe her a debt of gratitude for making the move happen sooner versus later. My belongings were treated with care. Masterfully orchestrated!

    Very slow and not thorough. Left numerous items that we or the movers had to pack the next day. Complained about the number of items that had to be packed and took constant breaks to go sit in the truck and vape.

    Not sure just what to say. We have two broken dishes, one very good and the other good. Items that were in the desk were taken out and put in boxes. We were told that would not happen--what was in the drawers would stay there. We are still not sure about some other items which we cannot find. Most important we cannot use our piano properly. We were told that someone would be at both ends who knew how to handle it and this was not so.
