Re: Interested in opinion about Angie's list

To cincyMack, To be honest, I'm not a big fan of Angie's List, The people that run the site are not very educated about the rules, regulations and workings of the household goods moving industry. They are recommending companies based on customer ratings and the customers posting the reviews are not ...

Re: There are exceptions to the rule. Please consider this...

Hey guys, I agree with Bill and Big Lee. Times and technology have changed and tools are available now that make it possible to do an accurate quote remotely. I get a mix of in-house and video surveys to do and I find that for the biggest homes and/or more complicated moves - the in-home visit is st...

Re: Reputable mover from PA to West Coast

I don't see any request for information pertaining to a move. All I see here is blatant self-promotion totally unrelated to anything we discuss here.

Re: Relocation to New York

Hi Larahmart,

Armstrong is a very well respected agent for United Van Lines, which gives them access to a network of 4,900+ trucks throughout the US/Canada. They should be able to help you with all aspects of your relocation.

Good luck with your move :)

Re: AAA Consumer relocation services

Hi ewanchapman, You should be aware that many movers that participate in these programs actually bump up their prices to compensate for the cost of the "free" insurance or they give less of a discount than they would normally give to customers who were not promised any sort of giveaway. If the 3 com...

Re: How to measure the truck

Hi owenclements, If the truck has not yet been off-loaded, tell them you want to back-measure the truck yourself at the delivery. That means you measure the distance occupied from the end of the last piece of your shipment to the starting point of the first piece of your shipment, then do the math a...

Re: Move from CA to FL - Have some questions

To zackhill, If one company said you definitely need an origin shuttle and the other company discussed the possibility that you might need a shuttle - it sounds like it's going to be needed. I don't like the idea where one company said they are going to try to get in with the big rig and if they fai...

Re: HELP! Moving from FL to TX

Hi ikhan007, I have been given multiple quotes ranging from $1100 to $6K for a one-bedroom apartment move The disparity between your lowest and highest quotes is too large. Please write back and let us know the following for each company who quoted you: 1) Company name and US DOT # or MC #? 2) In-ho...

Re: Question for the pros

Hi Jeff, To the best of my knowledge that is a state-centric requirement that varies from one state to another rather than a federal regulation. I can tell you that in NY you must show your NY State DOT # for local moving and if you sell your agency as a representative of a van line for long-distanc...

Re: Any Long Distance Mover with Low/No Deposit?

To ReloCray, Your instincts are good. Movers asking for 1/2 down or any other large deposit amount to book your move or hold dates is a huge red flag. Most agents of major van lines might ask for a small deposit if any (as a good faith gesture on your part) to reserve men & equipment, especially dur...

They are a 100+ years old van line running about 600 registered trucks/tractors throughout the United States. They are also the only major van line with actual headquarters in...

Re: Lighthouse Vanlines

To jerbear1212, You didn't say where you will be moving from and to, so I can't tell whether you're going local or interstate. If you are planning an interstate move, I can tell you that according to Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration ("FMCSA") public records no roadside inspectio...
