What our customers say

Allied Van Lines

No comment. They were great, but they used a lot of paper to wrap small things like forks and spoons. They need to recycle.

Allied Van Lines

The fact they came out when they said would to load and unload. They stuck with price. They did break some items, but they paid for them but I would rather not have broken it at all.

Allied Van Lines

It was their professionalism. Everyone was wonderful. We plan on using Allied in the future and we are wondering if discount tickets are available to us? We will always use Allied. They did a superb job. From the beginning of the move to the end, the drivers, the crew and everyone else involved were fantastic. Everyone was very professional and we were extremely pleased!

Allied Van Lines

The people were very nice and pleasant. Sometimes the communication was a little shaky regarding the dates and times. I was not told ahead of time that I had to place paper into the boxes. I was not told ahead of time that paper was needed to be placed into the boxes therefore I had to break the boxes down.

Allied Van Lines

Everything from the start to the finish everyone was courteous & professional. I gave a "4" on the packing part because there were 2 items that were broken by accident. The delivery was 30 minutes late but I still rate them a "5" because that is fine with me.

Kevin D  of  Edmonton, AB 4.4 Rating:

The people who coordinated the move were very helpful, but I was hoping the loaders would have arrived earlier, because they were about an hour late.
