Nationwide Movers with Experience

Because a national moving company often handles more types of moves per year than a small locally-owned moving company, it tends to have more experience. For more than 85 years, Allied Van Lines has been the preferred mover to many when it comes to national moving companies. With decades of experience, our professional staff has the know-how and expertise required to ensure that every national move we perform is successful.

No matter how big or small your national move is, the employees at Allied are well-versed at handling national relocations for individuals, families, and employees. Our staff will work hard to ensure that our customers receive the best treatment possible through a tailor-made moving plan for your specific situation while providing transparent pricing. By working closely with our agents, you can rest assured knowing that your upcoming national move will be seamless and smooth.

How to Choose a Qualified Mover

When hiring movers, it’s important to understand the differences between local and national moving companies. A local moving company is typically privately owned and often operates only in the city or state of origin. A national moving company is often a larger, nationally known chain that performs local, interstate, and even international moves.

A few criteria should be considered before you decide on your moving company. For example, look for an experienced mover with abundant online reviews attesting to their service quality.

Comparing the market is an essential aspect of choosing the best national moving company as it lets you find out exactly what you should expect to pay. While the cost of a move will always vary as no two projects are the same, having an accurate estimate can be a big relief.

Arguably, the best way to choose a qualified mover for your move across the country is by reaching out and contacting firms directly.

Things to do Before Hiring a Nationwide Mover

  • The first thing that you should do is make sure any companies you're interested in choosing are experienced. The more experience they have, the less likely things will go wrong on moving day. In addition to experience, make sure they're licensed and insured, so you're covered in the event of a damaged item or mismanaged care.
  • When you've established that they're experienced, licensed, and insured, you should do your best to read some recent reviews about their service. After all, all that glitters is not gold, and sometimes even well-established companies can fall a little short of your expectations. One thing better than online reviews is word of mouth. Ask anybody you know who has moved recently who they moved with and how they rate their experience.
  • You must know everything about your move. Providing them with accurate information helps the moving company give you a more detailed estimate of when you can expect to receive your property at your new home. Some companies may be more flexible than others, so it's important to find one that can accommodate your requirements.
  • Most companies will have an FAQ on their website, and it's something at which you should take a good look. These questions will tell you much about the business and what you can expect them to do for you. If the FAQ doesn't have the question you need, or you'd rather speak to a real person, you should call them. A reputable moving company will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have about their service.
