Laura C.This past August I began researching relocation companies to aid me in my cross country move from Philadelphia, PA to Los Angeles, CA. After being contacted...
Celeste CardenasWe hired these guys after getting back dozens of quotes from other companies.These guys were amazing and most of all they were all in sync and worked well as a team. Super careful, fast and professional. I ended up paying less which lead to a better tip for the fantastic crew. Ask for Louis and John because from our personal experience they are very skilled and quick on their feet. Thanks!
daveTraditional helped move my folks recently. It was very tough choice to find a mover but thanks to social media i was able to narrow down my selection to 2 companies. I chose them based on two factors 1.The price was within a reasonable amount that i was willing to pay. 2.Very polite and professional staff. The movers were great and careful. My family was happy with everything so am I. A+ for quality and service.
superbaxalThe best moving company I've worked with, the service was punctual and the workers were very professional. Everything was very smooth. I had to move out very quickly because I recently just sold my house and had to move to my new home in a mater of days. I contacted Mitch and he was happy to help me out with my move. I was so stressed out about the whole thing, but they made it so easy for me. I absolutely recommend this company if you want peace of mind and an excellent service..
Steve MckeoughI've multiple moved times in my life. This was a great move, everything could not have gone more smoothly. The movers arrived right on time and were incredibly nice and professional. Everything was done in exactly the given window, with the team communicating with me every step of the way. They also included storage that helped out with me and my family finding a place in Vegas. The customer service leading up to, during and following the move were also exceptional. Very communicative and supportive!
Rita kapilevichIt took me awhile to choose these guys. I wanted to get the best price and they were the first to give me a call. Blake the sales guy was very patient, but did not budge on the price. Everyone was saying that if I would pick them that they would lower the price but he was firm and honest with his price from the start and I appreciated that. The move itself was great, no complaints from me or my family. All in all I got what I expected. Nothing was broken, and they delivered on time.
Dorothy ChaplinThis is the first ever moving experience so I feel I need to write this so that others can read about the amazing service we received - I cannot recommend Traditional Van Lines highly enough. Before the quote Traditional Van Lines visited and checked out what we were moving - including garden and shed. We paid for packing service and move. 3 packers arrived 8 am on Thursday and by 5 pm had packed all our belongings into boxes. The care the team puts into packing every item in paper is amazing. On Friday 8 am a team of 5 arrived to pack all our belongings into their vans. At the other end everything unpacked by around 5 pm. The team hardly stopped at all - taking care to put all boxes in the correct rooms, and making sure that there was covering on all carpets to ensure no mess. Wardrobes and beds were reassembled as well as the washing machine being plumbed in. We have been unpacking over the last 3 weeks and so far everything is intact. Even the most fragile of glasses have traveled well. I would definitely recommend Traditional Van Lines to anyone considering a stress free move and excellent service.
Michael ShunkWe would thoroughly recommend Traditional Van Lines.The service was faultless. Moving can be very stressful, and these guys made it as easy and painless as possible. They did a full packing and moving service for us, to 2 locations. They also help move some items of furniture to relatives, locally. Due to date changes from buyers, we only had 3 days notice of move, but these guys came the day I called and started packing, and then took 50% of our house to storage. They then returned 2 days later, on our moving date, and moved us to NY. Totally hassle free. They where all very polite, careful with our belongings, and very tidy. We're so glad we used Traditional Van Lines, you will be too.
Iraida Castellanos LuceroWe would totally recommend Traditional Van Lines as they have recently made our house move stress free. The professionalism was outstanding right from the quote through to removal. They were extremely efficient and really supportive during each stage including packing and removal of items. I would like to thank movers for a terrific service 100% excellent.
Lisa KuykendallThey were absolutely brilliant! They were in the house 5 minutes before the time we had arranged! They were very friendly and careful with my stuff! Plus, the price for everything they carried, (around 40 boxes of various sizes,5 big suitcases and 2 smaller ones, 2 chests of drawers, a bedside table and small fridge freezer),was unreal!! Very affordable! I will definitely recommend them to anyone I know and wants an affordable and great moving company and I will definitely use that company for the next time I move!
Kristian K.I have never moved long-distance. So, a lot of reviews gave mixed feelings about the whole thing. But as far as the experience, negative ones are just...
Willie BennettI contacted Mitch a couple of weeks ago, for my move she got back to me promptly and I updated her as we got closer to the date, The team were excellent they arrived early and made a great job of packing the van, they have blankets to cover valuables, packing film where needed and excellent full soft packaging bags for sofa removals. Although there was plenty of gear they were great nothing damaged and everything put in the correct rooms. Thank you for the great service!!!
Keith PorterEverything that Traditional Van Lines touched ran smoothly- from the initial quote visit to the packers and then the moving. The men were professional, courteous at all times, good natured and quick. I have no hesitation in recommending them. Even the company themselves will say that they are not the cheapest but then you do get what you pay for. I am glad that we did not go with cheaper quotes as there are so many horror stories. They say moving house is one of the most stressful things you can do, however I can honestly say that Traditional Van Lines really helped remove most of that stress.
Karen HunterI would highly recommend this company. They are very professional, understanding and communicate regularly with you at every step. This was my first significant move for a while so I was naturally quite concerned and needed a company I could trust. From the start the company gave off all the right vibes for me and quickly got back to me if I had any concerns or queries. I made an inquiry and got a full quotation. On the move day, they were professional, kind, didn't make a fuss and just got on and did the job. The whole move was very smooth and actually a really pleasant experience.
Anthony C.I was planning my move from HK to West Harlem and unsure about the best options for a simple, local move. On the recommendation of a friend who had...
Robin BaskinWe decided to use Traditional Van Lines after recommendation from a close friend. The level of customer service was fantastic from the off, and he gave a very personal service and nothing too much trouble. Although we paid more than we had anticipated it was very much worth it. The packaging materials arrived on time and so did the guys on the the day. from the off they worked their socks off. No stopping for cigarette breaks, polite and very presentable. I would happily recommend this company to anyone. on the whole a 1st class service 5 stars guys!
Bridget HernandezThe team arrived 45 minutes early and did the whole job in 4 hours. Very friendly and helpful. Effects loaded directly into storage containers and took extra items with no hassle. Also arranged for some contents to go in a separate van to my temporary accommodation. The team were very considerate and handled all effects with care. They could not have been more accommodating, efficient or helpful. Good value too. I will definitely use again.
Jennifer GallegoWe had a stellar experience with Traditional Van Lines -- from start to finish. I spoke with Ross who was clearly very experienced, friendly and thorough, explaining all the necessary details so there were no hidden costs. I was able to reach him and Traditional Van Lines throughout the process.We were treated like V.I.P.s the whole time. The 3 gentlemen who were assigned to our move did a fabulous job in a timely, safe and professional manner. Not only were they accommodating, but they were the fairest price for our job.I would absolutely recommend Traditional Van Lines.
Antionette DudleyI would give Traditional Van Lines a rating of 10. The 3 men who were assigned to my moving job were professional, courteous and efficient. They got to work as soon as they arrived and completed within the time stated in the contract. They were very careful and wrapped every piece of furniture and taped the wrapping (blankets) to ensure that the pieces stayed covered. They were organized and placed furniture and all boxes in their designated places.I would recommend this company, but especially, the 3 men who did my move. Very satisfied with service and costs.
Mary GarciaTraditional Van Lines was used to move extra office furniture and appliances from a storage unit all the way to a sister location in Seattle. They set me us with some great movers who've handled company moves in the past. They treated everything well and did a job wrapping and securing everything in the truck. It only took 3 days before it arrived. They explained the cost and the moving system they used before I confirmed anything with them. I knew what I was getting into from the start. No negative surprises besides the fact that they worked way quicker than I was expecting. Very good job. This is a service I would definitely consider using a second time.
Bessie LesterGreat people. All of my inquiries received prompt replies. They went out of their way to deliver my bookshelves to where they needed to go, and in great shape. Just as important, they kept in touch the entire time. The price for going this was fantastic - much more reasonable than could have expected. I can't recommend them highly enough.
Nattie R.I hate moving. Like I cant think of something id rather do less. After hearing so many horror stories about moving companies I was very apprehenive in...
Bryan MorrisWe had an amazing experience with Traditional Van Lines from beginning to end. They moved us across the country from NJ to California. From initial consultation to delivery in CA it was flawless. They provided a comprehensive overview with step by step attentiveness to every aspect of our move. We just couldn't be happier. Everyone we worked with from the office were so helpful and nice and the moving staff was so efficient and professional. Highest recommendations for this wonderful company!
Mary MontgomeryHe and his crew were fantastic. They worked us in the very same day when our scheduled moving company cancelled on us at the last minute because of a little rain. Our three bedroom apartment was packed up and moved into our new house within two hours, and everything got here in one piece. Their service was quick and professional, as well as reasonably priced (especially for same-day service!). We are very glad we called them!
Apoorva K.I have had a very easy moving with this company from PA to CA. They give reasonable quotes and are very very professional. The representative who worked...
Victoria M.Shout out to traditional express. I went through a rigorous experience trying to find an affordable and reliable moving company. First time using a moving...
Elisabeth BrownUsed this company about a week ago and they did an amazing job. They were on time and very careful with our things. All the guys that came out were very respectful and easy to talk too. They made sure to take care of our things and communicated with each other very well! If I ever move again I will definitely use these guys again! I had zero issues and there prices were very affordable. The moving truck they came in was very clean and organized, which I appreciated. Thank you again!
Alexander SansonI could not have been more pleased and impressed by the attention the company, ownership and staff gave me during a small move ordered last month. The follow-through was outstanding and I felt as if there was genuine concern for our belongings and that nothing would get damaged. The owner made two special trip on a Saturday just to be sure there were no problems. I highly recommend the company. Everyone was professional, efficient and flexible. I would definitely use their services again.
Gilbert PattersonThe two movers sent to move me arrived promptly and loaded their van quickly and carefully. Delivery was prompt and unpacking very quick. Furniture and boxes were moved to appropriate rooms and everything was handled carefully. Happy to report no breakages. Both movers were polite, professional and competent. Great service. Highly recommended. Would use again.
Keisha TurnerThey moved my 3500 square foot house in 9 hours and were prompt, courteous, professional and absolute geniuses when it came to moving my large and difficult heirloom pieces. Their prices are fair and I would highly recommend to anyone. You might have to wait a day for a call back but it's worth it because when they're on the clock for you they won't be stopping to answer their phones. Give this local family owned business your business, you won't be disappointed!!
Daryl VandiverHIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS COMPANY! Had to move out-of-state on short notice. They showed up when they said they would, on both ends of the move (door-to-door service). Their price was fair and no hidden fees. Very professional, efficient, and easy to work. Stayed in communication with me throughout the move! Their service alleviated the stress of moving. Great experience.
Jomerr S.Just recently had my first time experience of getting a long distance move. I had a lot of stuff that needed to be move from my place at NJ to an apartment...
Virginia PowellThey were cooperative, polite and efficient. They scheduled the delivery at our convenience, unpacked, set up and placed furniture. The entire move was virtually flawless and they returned twice to pick up all the paper and cardboard. I am not normally a writer of this sort but, I wanted other to know the high quality of service and people inherent in this company. 5 Stars, no hesitation.
Nancy VentoThey worked efficiently and quickly, and the job was done with no issues whatsoever. Pricing was clear and definitely a great value. We had placed some clothes and other items in garbage bags, and they even had additional boxes and items to make sure that these items were packed efficiently, even if we didn't. If we need to move again, I would definitely use Traditional Van Lines.
Michelle WhiteThey showed up on time, with all the necessary equipment, and worked tirelessly until the job was done. Although the price point was a bit high, you get what you pay for. Everything was well protected and no damages occurred. The workers were very friendly and efficient. All in all we were quite happy with their service.
William MoserThis is the best moving company I have ever worked with. They are amazing. The movers are extremely professional and very friendly. They are responsible as well. I would only recommend Traditional Van Lines to my friends and family. On top of that there prices are very reasonable. Don't look any further all you need is Traditional Van Lines. I will definitely be working with the again no question about it. They have a committed happy customer in me. Thank you so much you guys are great.
Mary JohnsonThis is an awesome company. You know how hard it is when moving from one place to another but they make moving very easy and efficient. All the staff are courteous and kind. They have great rate plans to choose from that are reasonable and that won't break the bank. During the day of move they came in on time and were very quick. Moving went very smoothly. I highly recommend this company!
Mohammad Fahad AveekIf you are reading this then never go for this company. The price they charge you is really high first of all. Besides the way they moved my items is horrible. They dropped 5 boxes in the street which damaged end number of items. They broke chair, damaged sofa, dinning table, piano. When I told them that why are you neglecting the items and breaking them. The delivery person told that we are not liable for this you have insurance so go talk to them that's none of our business if anything is broken. I called customer care and they also told that we are not liable if anything broke. Go ahead and claim insurance. The insurance company is anthem management who are even worse. They rejected few of the claims at the first place and the process is I need to print every single damage items and mail them not even email which even cost me money. Then they send me a consideration of $174 only and told to notary and send it back which will again cost me money. When we called both of the companies again they told that these are none of their business. I relocated multiple times for job purpose but this is the CROOK company I have ever seen in my entire life. What should I do with $174 with end number of damaged items. Don't go for this company even for free. I wish I could have give them 0 rating.
Ray B.I have experienced moving in the past and it was a not so good one. But the experience I got from this company was an excellent one. Totally different from...
William RatliffThey took excellent care of my items and were sure to wrap everything and handle it carefully. The move was painless and inexpensive -- their pricing was cheaper and more straightforward than any other moving company I quoted. From getting a quote, to follow up questions I had before my move, Traditional Van Lines were extremely responsive (responding to my emails with the hour) and polite. If you're moving I would recommend these guys!
Kristen SmailaIf I could give this company zero stars, I would. Please do not let their quotes entice you to use their services. When I began the process of moving from Texas to NY, I had gone through the typical "Please list your inventory and we will send you free quotes", and received multiple quotes with numerous companies. When I saw a quote for $1300 I was enticed and decided to move forward with the company. Once the delivery men got to my apartment, they had readjusted the quote to well over $3000 "due to the size of my furniture". Even though I had listed the dimensions to each of my items, they said they don't guarantee the quoted amount. Straight FALSE ADVERTISING. Since I had no other options and they had already packed my furniture up, I had to continue with there service. Well, upon delivery I owed them ANOTHER $1500, on top of the initial $2000 I had already paid them, when the balance was listed as $1100. When I tried to ring them to inquire about where the additional $400 was coming from, no one answered. How do you have a business where no one answers the phone at 10:00AM on a Thursday?? The delivery guy had mentioned it may be a 'shuttle fee', even after the person who packed my things said that would only apply if they had to take my things into the city (so I purposely had them deliver to my mom's house). The poor delivery men had to hear me screaming and bitching, but could essentially understand my frustration with such an unethical company. In addition to the 400% increase in price, several of my belongings had been damaged in transit - equating this to an additional $600 loss for 3 items. I will be inputting a claim AND following up with the better business bureau about their practices. DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY
Steve LammersI have never posted a bad review before. But this has been a truly awful experience. Please read all the fine print before you move anything with this company. Don't use them simply because of good rates. My lawyer says I could win a lawsuit but as you know it's simply not worth the time and money to go through that. I was lied to at least three times and the pickup times and delivery times we're way off base. Twice they simply didn't show up and didn't call to let us know they weren't coming. The third time they finally came late and claimed they couldn't get in our driveway so I had to pay an extra $350 moving costs. The mover was very belligerent when I pointed out that one of the tables had a broken leg which wasn't like that when it started to move. And one of the dining room chairs was also broken. And at least ten things were scuffed-up. And the leaves for the dining room table were missing which makes it basically unusable for the purpose we bought it. The only reason I wrote this review is to help keep you from a nightmare like this. Please don't use this dishonest company. I have at least $2,000 damage that I'm pretty confident they are not going to pay for. EDIT. Doing a little research after this fiasco I do think it's very likely that they paid for good reviews. A number of these reviewers reviewed multiple other moving companies I will edit this review again if they pay for the damages - or AT LEAST return my phone calls as they promised! When they got paid they disappeared. Now I know why they only accept cash or money order. It's a pretty smart scam
Timothy ThorneOur move was from a townhouse with three flights of stairs to a new home 275 miles away. We hadn't moved in fifteen years so there was also lots of stuff. Ross got right back to me with a quote. It wasn't the cheapest, but it was competitive, and I liked how they would do as much or as little as we needed. On moving day, movers showed up with a 24 foot truck and got right to work. These guys worked hard and efficiently. Everything was well padded, and fragile items were treated appropriately. Because this was a relatively long distance move, we decided to park the truck in a secure yard overnight, but they would have driven over if I wanted. The next morning, they got an early start and arrived at our new home by early afternoon. The truck was quickly unloaded, and they were on their way back to NJ. I wouldn't hesitate to hire them again. They showed up on time, worked efficiently, and were actually fun to be around. The final price was within the quoted range.
Annie OverbyI cannot say enough good things about this moving company. They were exactly what I was looking for. They are affordable, professional, efficient, and very hard working. They took great care of my things. I moved from a fully furnished two bedroom apartment to a new home 30 minutes away in under 3 hours. I highly recommend using Traditional Van Lines!!
David MartinsATTENTION to the good reviews! they are all paid to post 5 star comments. Olga and all that team are super dishonest and distrustful. I don't recommend to anyone. No more business with this company for sure! Worst company ever, almost 1 month late, they never answered my phone calls. They were nice when I did the estimate and the first payment. After that forget!
Patricia SchmittThey moved my 3500 square foot house in 9 hours and were prompt, courteous, professional and absolute geniuses when it came to moving my large and difficult heirloom pieces. Their prices are fair and I would highly recommend to anyone. You might have to wait a day for a call back but it's worth it because when they're on the clock for you they won't be stopping to answer their phones. Give this company your business, you won't be disappointed!!
Ryan TaylorThese guys are awesome. We used them for a massive 10 hour move -- their truck had been damaged a few weeks before the move, but they went out of their way to rent another truck to make sure our job got done. They are very good at catching tiny details as well and giving us advice on how to make our moves more efficient. Will continue to use them in the future.
Pamela OliverThe movers have always arrived 10-15 minutes early. I had 3 movers for each of my moves and all of them have been courteous and friendly. Funny, they don't take breaks. They take extra care of your belongings. They work efficiently and seem to love what they do! This last time, a supervisor stopped by just to make sure everything was going smoothly - which it was. They gave me a "repeat business" discount. Highly recommended.
Robert JohnsonGreat job at a great price, excellent customer service, thoroughly professional, will definitely call them for our next move. No damage whatsoever, moving furniture out of a very high end office building. Team came totally prepared with floor coverings and wall protection and finished the move efficiently and on time.
Nitin ChaurasiaThis is my first negative review on google. I never had bad experiences so. I waited for 3 months to give the company a chance to establish the credibility, but in the end, it was all false promises. First, the goods were delivered 8 days delayed, for which i was OK, but I was over charged by over 400 dollars at the last minute without any prior information. The stuff that was delivered had many things missing for which i was assured that either it will in the inventory which will be handed over to me if found or the equivalent amount will be returned. None has happened. The claims that i filed came back saying they evaluate the cost of missing items zero. Pathetic Services
Daniel FlackFailed to deliver my items at all. When late for delivery, I requested an update to which they told me the items were on a different vehicle and would be delivered in the next few weeks. About a month passed, still no delivery. After continual engagement from myself, as well as an attorney, they relented and informed me they delivered the goods to the wrong home and the property owner 'did not allow them to retrieve them'. They refused to cooperate with law enforcement by initiating an investigation for theft or releasing the name and contact info for the alleged individual holding the goods hostage. I do not believe the goods were wrongly delivered, they were stolen. I highly recommend anyone think twice before contacting this company.
Jackson DukeThese guys are the best!! They helped me out last minute in a bind and they were professional, courteous and super helpful. Took longer than I expected but they had a good attitude.
Jusjit LalliAvoid these guys like the plague. THEY HAVE AN F on the Better Business Bureau website, look it up yourself. This company is run by some shady Russian dudes, they are always making excuses/unreliable. Have hung up on me as well. I unfortunately got these guys as a 3rd party through Best Interstate Moving Company, what a big mistake. I wish I could go back in time, would have never used these services.
Jennifer SorgdragerDO NOT USE THIS COMPANY! They also do business under the name Vanguard Van Lines. Missing expensive items, many broken items, delivered 11 days late with 2 workers who barely spoke English and didn't understand me most of the time, refused to re- assemble my furniture until I called the company to complain and even still didn't complete assembling half my stuff! The itemized inventory consists of counting boxes. I strongly urge you to find a more reliable company.
