I had a wonderful experience with Van Lines Inc. The entire moving process was seamless and stress-free. Their team was efficient, organized, and handled all my items with care. They went above and beyond to make sure everything was delivered on time and in great condition. I couldn't have asked for a better moving company.

Van Lines Inc. response

Ms. Speirs, thank you for choosing VanLines Inc for your move. You are the reason your move went so well. From the start, you had an accurate list of items you were moving. Then, when you realized you forgot to add a few outdoor gardening items and a couple of pieces of furniture, you called and had them added to your move. Since your move is calculated by the square foot, we added the items, and your price increase was nominal. There were no surprises for the carrier or you when the carrier arrived. Perfection. Thank you for making us shine.

    Last month I found myself in a total state of PANIC when my husband told me we were moving to another state for his work. I’d never moved more than myself into and out of a small apartment years ago, let alone a four-bedroom home with two young children. Along with all of this, my husband’s company told me that they only use Van Lines Inc. to relocate their employees. Wow, now I couldn’t even choose my own moving company. How much can one person be out of control? Well, I’m here to tell you that when the movers arrived, they introduced themselves, told me exactly what they would be doing, and then set about their job quietly and efficiently. They were hired to pack my entire home, room by room, completely. It was amazing to see how much they could accomplish in such a short amount of time.

    All the furniture was wrapped and carefully placed in the truck. Watching them pack the truck was like watching a live game of Tetris. Every inch was used. We needed a little more time to deliver our things, so Van Lines Inc arranged for short-term storage for free, and when we had a delivery date, they reloaded the truck and delivered everything. When they were unloading, I told them where to place the furniture and what room the boxes would be in. It seemed like a dream. I see why the corporate office only used Van Lines Inc to relocate employees. They are indeed the best.

    Van Lines Inc. response

    We are always pleased to service moves for your husband's employer. It is a wonderful company, and we have met several staff members over time. We know you will enjoy your new home, it's beautiful. If your neighbors are half as nice as the area, you'll soon be making some great memories. Thank you for your wonderful review.

    I just got a new job in California, so I had to move, because I couldn't work from Las Vegas. We decided to hire a moving company because we have a huge, expensive bed, so there was no way to sell it. The lady who called me from Van Lines was very welcoming and super nice. She called me via Facetime, then I showed everything I had in my house that I would take. It was very easy and it took no more than 20 minutes. Everything was very smooth. The move was perfect as well. The movers did everything. I didn't have some boxes, and the guy found some and didn't charge me for them. I have nothing to complain about because it was very nice. We had a miscommunication with the delivery date, but that wasn't a major thing. My experience was very good overall.

    Van Lines Inc. response

    We are so pleased your move went well. We appreciate your review and hope you are getting familiar with your new home and job. Congratulations.

    We were able to book them at the last minute to move from Boston to Miami when another moving company did not show up. The customer service was perfect. They arrived on time and gave me a call when they were heading over so I knew to be ready. They packed up my goods very carefully, disassembled my furniture quickly without breaking anything, and took safe care. They arrived at the new location 7 days after pickup and were able to unload my goods extremely fast as well. They put all the boxes where I asked them to, and they put my furniture back together extremely fast and arranged my room the way I wanted. I would recommend them to anyone that is moving.

    Van Lines Inc. response

    Thank you Mr. Yaron. It's always great to hear we are doing a good job. We hope you are enjoying your new home - take care.

    My move out of NYC to Los Angeles went so smoothly thanks to Van Lines inc., Danielle, who coordinated the move, was extremely helpful and responsive. The quote was reasonable compared to other companies. No hidden charges! Kevin from the dispatch has been amazing with keeping me posted on everything along the way and what to expect, our movers were SO nice and SO accommodating. They really did a professional, wonderful job, I could not thank them enough. I would recommend Van Lines Inc to everyone I know.

    Van Lines Inc. response

    Thank you, Ms. Judy, for the great review. I will be sure to pass this along to Danielle and Kevin. They love to know they are doing their job well. Long moves, such as yours, are very stressful, and we're so pleased it all went well for you. Please keep us in mind if you need to move in the future. Enjoy Los Angeles!

    Recently I had to move from a Naval Base in Arizona to a Naval Base in North Carolina. Being a Navy Seal, you’d think nothing could rattle my nerves. Well, the prospect of moving put my nerves front and center. However, I’m so glad I found Van Lines Inc. Julie completely coordinated my move from start to finish. Their team of movers was great and put me at ease when I saw their organization and efficiency. Thank you, Julie and VanLines Inc., for a fantastic relocation.

    Van Lines Inc. response

    It was our pleasure to be of service to you. Thank you for your service to all of us. We have been relocating our military for over 20 years, and giving back is always great. Enjoy your new base. When you're ready to make another move, we'll be here for you.

    The movers were supposed to be here between 8:00 and 12:00 on the day of the move. They got here at 1:30 and did not finish packing me out till 3:30 in the morning. There were two of them to move my house. They were fast, but there were not enough of them. The thing that surprised me was I had a stackable full-size washer-dryer and they wrapped that thing together and carried it out on top of each other.

    Van Lines gave me a quote then I added things, so they had to adjust the quote. When they got here, they adjusted it again because I had more. I'm okay with that part. But they were late getting there. They were supposed to be there about 12 o'clock but they overslept and had to pick up my things in Fayetteville. The majority of the pieces that meant the most to me made it safe and sound. However, they broke two chairs and a table. They didn't bring them in the house. They put them over in a pile and left without even telling me that they were broken. I'm also missing a box of clothing and some of my better things. Another thing is they left personal trash, like things that they had eaten in, and it started to smell in my garage. I didn't know it was there.

    Initially the van was late. There was a strong sweet odor when the movers opened the door to the van which made me suspicious that drugs were involved. There was damage to my console. The base and the frame were damaged. They were bent. The wooden frame on my bed, had multiple chips. The handle on the chest of drawers was damaged and a small linen chest had a chip. The movers left litter on my lawn; plastic bottles, wrapping and unused items. Needless to say, I was not pleased.

    I recently used Van Lines Inc. for my long-distance move and was blown away by their professionalism and efficiency. The team arrived on time and worked tirelessly to ensure my belongings were packed and moved with care. I highly recommend this company for anyone in need of a stress-free moving experience.

    Van Lines Inc. response

    Thank you for choosing VanLines Inc for your move. It is always a pleasure to service a move with customers who are careful to tell us the entire inventory list they have when they book. That way, nobody gets surprised when the carrier shows up and makes his final inventory list before he loads. You made all the difference for us. Enjoy your new place, and keep us in mind if you or your friends need to relocate.

    Van Lines Inc. response

    Thank you for your excellent recommendation. We are so happy your move went well for you. It isn't about us; it's about how careful you were to provide us with the correct inventory from the start.
