Hiring the right moving company can really simplify your life, but finding the right movers out of all the moving companies can be somewhat challenging. Its not just as simple as looking up "moving companies" in the phonebook. Choosing the right moving service is the most important decision in the moving process, and should be done carefully. First off, there are many different kinds of moving companies: local movers, house movers, furniture movers, piano movers, and long distance movers are just a few of the many moving services available. Your choice of moving company must be done in consideration of your specific moving needs. Then theres pricing. Not all moving companies are created equal and neither are their price lists. Moving companies often provide very different estimates for the same services rendered. Getting quotes from moving companies by dialing your way through the yellow pages could take hours, and may prove to be unwise. Some unscrupulous moving companies will provide consumers with low estimates, only to tack on extra charges after youve signed with them.

Subject :I would absolutely recommend them!
Comment : Our move was complicated by the fact that we were already living out of state, though all of our belongings were still in our home in Georgia. When we were certain the house was going to sell, we wanted to get everything packed and shipped quickly so the buyers could move in. I chose this company primarily because they were able to accommodate my timeline for a move very quickly. They gave me a non-binding rough estimate for the pack and move over the phone, since I did not have time to get someone into the house for a written estimate. The estimate was far below the actual, but I knew it most likely would be, given that we had a lot of heavy books, and plenty of artwork to pack. Elbin, our driver, was excellent: prompt, communicative, cheerful, energetic and very efficient. The guys who did the packing and moving were also very professional. Everything arrived when they said it would, and half of our belongings went into a large storage locker that I had found, with the rest coming to our much smaller apartment. (Again, a complicated process from the packing point of view...and because of the topography of where we live, the driver needed to rent a smaller truck for part of the day.) The foreman didn't even complain about my daughter’s IKEA bed, which he had to take apart and put back together! We have not found anything chipped or broken. It was very nice to have them handle the complicated process of moving and know that I was in good hands. I would absolutely recommend them!

Subject :Professionalism at its best
Comment : I was extremely anxious about hiring movers to pack and relocate my stuff from PA to GA. I researched a number of moving companies and most of them had terrible reviews. This company was outstanding from start to finish. They packed and moved all of our stuff from a 3500 square foot, 2 story house with a detached garage to an apartment on 3rd floor that has no elevator. The crew was extremely professional and courteous, and they went above and beyond to assure we had a good moving experience. The best part was their reasonable price. I had gotten 4 quotes for my moving and Great American Vanlines was the least expensive, and had the best reviews versus their competitors. Call Great American Vanlines, and believe what their sales rep. tells you. Truly an outstanding company.

Subject :EXPERT MOVERS, AFFORDABLE SERVICE!
Comment : They gave me everything that I was looking from a moving company. Reliability, honesty, dexterity, and well behavior all these good qualities are available in them. For that reason they can complete a move without any occurrence. They immediately executed their service upon arrival. I had to move with my one large bed room furniture. It was nothing for them. They took merely a few hours to pack and load onto the truck. There were just several large boxes and coupe of wardrobe boxes and some wrapped furniture. And at last, the end was pretty nice. I paid them their quoted rate. I am happy that I have seen a day when I rated a moving company five stars. Good job guys.

Subject :Fantastic! Dedicated group.
Comment : Excellent! Highly recommend! Professional. Friendly. Informative. Very well trained. Will absolutely use them again. Hard working. It was raining on my move in day and they kept me very well informed and kept in close contact with what the procedures were for the company. Because they were not able to do the move on the day I was available, they came early the following morning, fantastic! Dedicated group.

Subject :THANK YOU!!!
Comment : I was impressed with the care they took in moving everything. Dressers, appliances were wrapped in a pad and then wrapped in plastic before moving to truck. Brought boxes for hang up items. They had to move from the basement and on the main floor. They took care and were always attentive about what our desires were. Thanks Great American Van Lines!

Subject :I am thoroughly pleased
Comment : They helped me move a few months ago. This is a moving company that really outperformed all my expectations. Their quote was quite low which made me doubt their capabilities. But I was very surprised by the level of professionalism displayed by the movers. They showed up early on the moving day which almost never happens. All four men were very experienced and it showed in the way they worked. The whole packing and loading process took literally not much time. All my valuables were delivered on time and in the exact condition they were taken from my old house. I am thoroughly pleased with the services provided by this company.

Subject :I am so grateful that I have found them.
Comment : Sometimes I feel like maybe I should just leave my belongings in a moving van. I relocate every few months and while I don’t own a lot of furniture, I do own a lot of other things. It’s so hectic having to carry everything to new places every few months. Thankfully, I know a company that makes the moves bearable. Great American Van Lines has been my moving companion for almost 3 years. They never disappoint me. I don’t even bother getting quotes anymore. I call them up and give them my moving date. They give me a time slot and the movers always arrive on time. I hired them last while moving from Ridgewood, NJ to Belmont, MA. The movers were as great as I remembered. They came in, packed everything in a jiffy and set off to MA. It never takes them more than a day to finish the job. They are always polite, helpful and efficient. Even the deliveries are always made in time and nothing ever goes missing. I am so grateful that I have found them.

Subject :Fantastic Service!
Comment : I have recently used your company for my move from Cleveland Ohio to Fort Lauderdale FL. I want to recapture my experience for you so you can know how impressed I was with my service. I originally was speaking with Nathan and because of his persistence (and patience) he won my business. He was not overly pushy but answered any and all questions I had. He was patient with me as I did not know my exact move date due to a hiring process I was involved in. He never got short or impatient and that was a very good tactic for me. Once the move date was set, the moving truck came to my villa within the window of time that he said it would. I also got a call from Koba the day before to confirm this. On the day of the move, Koba pulled up in front of my house, hopped out of the truck, walked toward me, shook my hand and introduced himself. All the while he kept good eye contact. This immediately gave me confidence and assurance that I was dealing with a professional company because Koba himself was professional. Koba first sat down with me to explain the way the move was billed and that the quote was for 1400 cubic feet. He could see that I would exceed that and explained to me how that would work. He went over each page of the contract with me explaining it in a way I could understand. He did not rush me even though time is money. It seemed more important to him that I was able to understand what he was explaining to me and that I understood the process. This is huge from a customer service standpoint. Once the paperwork was done, the three men, including Koba starting the loading process, but not before Koba had me come out to the truck to see that there was nothing in the truck already except for some packing supplies. Once again, this speaks of integrity and he was transparent throughout the process. After reading many horror stories about moving companies, I found this to be very refreshing and comforting. It built my confidence in Great American Van Lines. Honesty goes a long way in today's world. One the other end, the truck arrived on time after I got to the apartment. Perfect timing. Koba got out and immediately got to work bringing the boxes into my apartment. He did have a local helper on this end but in all my life, I have never seen anyone work as hard as him. He is very focused, diligent, and professional. He is a good organizer, administrator, implementer, and communicator and is wise beyond his years. The way he deals with and interacts with people is incredible. Koba is, in my opinion, one of the most valuable assets in your company.

Subject :PHENOMENAL SERVICE
Comment : I was moving some household items and Great American Van Lines were very accommodating with the large amount of items I had. Other companies either wouldn't do my move or they would charge astronomical fees. They showed up on time and treated all of my belongings with care. They were phenomenal, professional, and very polite. Thank You Great American Van Lines!

Subject :Extremely courteous, and efficient
Comment : We found Great American Van Lines via a relative. After a disaster with another company who wanted to overcharge at pickup, we needed a mover on short notice. Great American Van Lines came through. Great service on short notice. The delivery drivers called the day before, then the next day to give us a time, then arrived within 30 minutes of that time. They unload was fast, with everything placed as we wished. They removed all packing and was on their way. Extremely courteous, and efficient.

Subject :MY HEREOS!
Comment : Am sure everyone is nervous before selecting there moving company and so was I but am so relieved that my experience was such a success that am more than happy writing this review to show my gratitude to all the employees at Great American Van Lines rather than writing a bad review like many that I read online. I did my research very well and I felt very comfortable with what I found, and actually working with warn and listing voice on the other side of the phone was calming. The move went very well, final price was within my budget, my items arrived on time and the movers were amazing especially Jose the head foreman that took care of every request that I had. The office people were very professional, accommodating and understanding! THANK YOU ONCE AGAIN YOU GUYS ARE MY HEREOS!

Subject :white glove service
Comment : I was totally blown away by the service at Great American Van Lines. They were simply amazing with moving me and my family. They were punctual and had all the packing materials needed. They worked carefully yet quickly and were very polite. The packers even wore gloves when packing the dishes and crystals. Talk about white glove service. They came to deliver on the set day and set up all the furniture and unpacked the boxes. Magnificent work from start to finish and not a scratch on one thing. The price was more than fair too.

Subject :Thanks Great American Van Lines for giving us a great experience.
Comment : These Guys were marvelous. They worked straight through a long day with only ten minutes break for refreshments. Actually I can’t compliment enough the crews who helped us move. I am grateful for their support. They were quite skilled to carry our stuff through a narrow and curved staircase. And I had no problem with the rate. It was absolutely reasonable. No hidden cost. We had some additional items at the last moment of move day. Their supervisor was extremely nice person. All their employees took the move very personally. Thereby there was no incident throughout the process. Thanks Great American Van Lines for giving us a great experience.

Comment : We used this company to move from New York to Louisiana and are very happy with our experience. The representative in the office was very professional, providing us a quote for services very quickly. Their price was very reasonable and very detailed. The moving crew really hustled and made sure everything was packed up well and securely. Everything arrived in good condition and right on-time at our new house. The crew also did a great job moving everything into the new place. All in all, a very good experience.

Comment : They provided me with a good service, reasonable price and fast delivery and crushed my doubts in such short time. I moved with them from Illinois to Connecticut in 10 days. Not a single glass of water was broken, lost or damaged during the transfer so you can only imagine how good they are. This moving was the ultimate best service I got.

Subject :recommend them to anyone
Comment : I just finished a move with Great American Van Lines and I was extremely pleased. We worked with Dana as my sales rep and she was kind courteous, always upbeat and a real pro. We moved from New York to Illinois. They kept our stuff in storage for 4 weeks until we found our new place. Everything went smooth as silk from start to finish. Our job was done by Great American Van Lines not a subcontractor. I had a great experience and would recommend them to anyone.

They were on time, responsive, very careful with our belongings, and excellent customer service. The price point is very competitive and is an excellent value for the service they provided. Without reservation would I highly recommend Great American Van Lines and Delivery!

Subject :100% perfect
Comment : I think my experience of moving with Great American Van Lines was nothing less than a 100% perfect. They managed to do everything that could be considered as a perfect move, their customer service was great and they even came down to our house the very same day we called for an inspection. This is a good way to start off; most movers avoid this as they agree to a price and get the opportunity to tell the customer that they underestimated the work. Mega Relocation first made this suggestion to us and told us this would enable them to give us an estimate of what the cost would be. Well the price they quoted was a one off price and they assured us that the price would not increase. We were very impressed with their honesty and they stuck to their word.
