Reviews from kansas Customers

  • The thought this crew was the best that I've ever had out of my four moveswith Allied. The crew was also friendly and professional. The crew really worked good together.
  • I liked how much the coordinator kept me well informed. The moving crew was quick, professional, and efficient. They stayed on schedule. It wasan overall very good experience.
  • I was very satisfied and I've moved twice with Allied. In one case, the driver was left unload the goods.
  • The overall service was fine. There were two workers who illegibly labeled the boxes & made the unpacking difficult. Rayma, one of the workers, did an excellent job however.
  • The friendly nature of the guys and the fact that they got there a dayearly most influenced my rating.
  • The car has some dents. I am extremely satisfied. Apart from the dents in the car everything was very good.
  • The moving experience was great except for the typical lag time in between the move from the beginning to the end of the move.
  • The rep I spoke to over the phone communicated everything well. The driver who del was very conscientious. I asked for boxes the day before and the crew came w/o any. There was nothing to wrap my mirror or my pictures. The delivery driver said he had to
  • As a matter of fact I used Allied in Sept for my moves. Both the movers were just good old boys. They were down to earth and took care of our things. They were very good people. My mom's piano was very precious. It got here fine. The guys seemed like part of the family.
  • We moved thirteen times, and we used various moving services; my husband and I both said that this was the easiest and best move of them all. Everybody was very nice, and we were really pleased.
