They were very efficient. The packing, loading and delivery was efficient and they are very honest and thoughtful. They found two of my boxes after they left and they brought them back.

What our customers say

Allied Van Lines

I haven't gotten my second load. I also haven't heard from the dispatchers concerning my second load. The driver of the first load was very nice and I liked her.

Allied Van Lines

They came when they said they were, they were flexible, and the men that helped with the packing and moving were great.

I loved the cust srvc and the young lady that contacted me about thing. The packing I was surprised how efficiently and quickly they got it done even with the frequent smoke breaks.

Whitney M  of  Owasso, OK 4.9 Rating:


Allied Van Lines

The salesman was pleasant and professional. The quote was neat and clear what the charges were. I had a couple of missing items and some chips on some high end pieces. Most items were in great shape. I received 3 quotes and none was as professional as Allied. The 2nd I received a vague quote. The other company gave us a high quote.

Allied Van Lines

My stuff reached the destination unbroken, and the coordinator was easy to work with. The driver arrived on time only after being forced to do so.

Deborah T  of  Phoenix, AZ 4.5 Rating:


Allied Van Lines

The main reason I chose Allied was b/c of the estimator & guy who came to the house to explain everything about it. I compliment Baileys Moving & Storage out of Grand Junction Collardo. It was good. Nothing was broken & the crew worked very good.

Mark K  of  Grand Junction, CO 5 Rating:


Allied Van Lines

The professionalism of the move and I don't doubt that they will handle the missing items any less professional than the move.

The customer service was great. I liked the follow up I got from the rep in Seattle. The rep was very reachable and I was happy with the price.
