I trust them

Moving around every few years is not fun at all. The moving companies are supposed to lessen my worries but somehow they keep adding to it. After trying several different big shots, I came to the conclusion that there is no better moving company than Forward van lines. Their prices are very competitive and the customer service is unbelievably prompt. The movers are all very experienced and friendly. They showed up on time. They take very short amount of time to finish the job, which is really cost effective. They delivery timely and make sure that the inventory list measures up. I have found my perfect moving company and I am never going back to the other thieves.

Very trustworthy moving company

I have hired 3 other moving companies in the past. None of them came even close to the efficiency levels of Forward van lines. They conducted my last move and were just fantastic. I have had many of my valuables broken in the past. But these guys performed a miracle when they delivered each and every item I own undamaged to my new house. The movers deserve all the credits. They were just very experienced in every aspect. They knew exactly how to do the job properly.

Best movers in America

Finding a mover is just so difficult- a proper one that is. You call one and it goes to voice mail. You call another and your information is taken and you’re told someone will call you back. This can be repeated multiple times! I actually spoke with the manager at Forward van lines directly and we were able to schedule my request for a move for the next day. His movers, a two-man-crew, met me at the storage facility at the time we agreed upon, loaded up the truck, drove to my home, unloaded and finished the job in a few hours. They were courteous and professional and pleasant to work with. The quote was very fair and I feel it was appropriate for what I needed to be moved. I’m glad these guys are providing amazing services without the hassles!

They were fantastic

I used Forward van lines for my first big move. They showed up right on time and were very professional. By the time I knew it, my whole apartment was packed! It was so fast that I lost my phone and keys in the process. The guys were nice enough to stop, call my phone, and listen for it. They even helped me look in the truck till I found it. It was also difficult getting a cab at my building, normally they're lined up, and so the guys let me ride in their car. I have never used movers before, and I would highly recommend these guys. I lived in a 570 sq ft studio and everything was moved and unloaded into my new apartment in just a few hours even though I was moving interstate. The estimate was very affordable to begin with. It came out to be a little less than the amount they quoted including all my boxes and wardrobe boxes. I would definitely use these guys again.

Sincerity is crucial

I have a hard time trusting just any moving company with all my valuables. That’s why I entrusted Forward van lines as they were highly referred by one of my closest friends. I do not have a lot of stuffs but the pieces I have are very special to me. I asked the movers to be very careful with them. I have to say, they were very sincere. They were extra careful while maneuvering my furniture through my tiny house not to leave marks anywhere. Everything arrived in good condition and I couldn’t be happier.

Very sincere bunch of men

This move happened quite suddenly and I hurriedly hired Forward van lines only because of their rational quote. But they turned out to be quite awesome. Their movers were all very well trained and knew exactly how to maneuver through my tiny apartment without causing any damage. They were fast too which saved me a lot of money. They delivered on time and my stuffs traveled really well. I was very impressed seeing them at work. I will definitely hire them again.

It didn’t cost a fortune

I found Forward van lines to deliver a solid moving experience at a price that can best be termed as cheap. They handled my move in such a professional manner. They arrived early, packed everything with great care and loaded all my stuffs onto the vans with caution. The best part was that they charged me very reasonably. Their initial estimate wasn’t too high to begin with. The final bill came very close to it and I was just so happy.

Nothing can stop them

It was a very snowy day when I was moving. But it didn’t seem to matter much to the movers from Forward van lines. They arrived right on time and started packing all my valuables. The truck was loaded efficiently and they set off in the snow covered way. They delivered on time, even in a pouring blizzard. I really would have forgiven them for inefficiency given the weather conditions. But they didn’t disappoint me even in that pathetic weather.

Outstandingly efficient

I have moved 10 times within the last 15 years and Forward van lines has been by far the best moving company. They showed up with five guys both for packing and unpacking; move went faster and smoother than we expected. They were very helpful and they catered to all our needs. All our valuables were delivered on due time without any damaged caused to them. We paid the least amount of money for this move!

They do it better

We chose Forward van lines after hearing scary moving stories about other very large national moving chains. Our move went smoothly and wonderfully. The movers packed up our delicate old furniture, artworks and other belongings with such great care and delivered them to our new apartment without a hitch. Nothing was damaged or lost. They were kind and helpful in providing our move estimate and patiently worked with us as our move expanded. I would highly recommend this moving company!

Very likable and skilled staffs

Most movers hire men who walk, pack, carry and talk like robots. I'm not the kind of person who works just for the heck of it. I always like people who know how to have fun even when they are working. During my last move, I hired Forward van lines to help me move my valuables. Their men were so polite and efficient. Their work was absolutely meticulous. But what really impressed me was their ability to smile every now and then. They obviously had a very good relationship among themselves and it showed all the time. It's good to have hired people who know their jobs well while having fun doing it.

I’m very happy

This was my first time hiring movers and I could not be happier with Forward van lines. It was definitely worth the price, which was much more reasonable for full packing services than I would have thought. However, I did have most of my own boxes given by a friend who recently moved, which saved me a bundle. All the movers, both during pickup and delivery- all took great care with all my stuff, and were very polite and professional. They did a fantastic job and I'll definitely hire them again. Thanks again guys!

Helpful movers

After living away from my husband for about three years, I decided it was time to make the move with our kids. We hired Forward van lines to transport our valuables. They gave us a very reasonable quote. The movers arrived on time and we were glad that they did because it was a really early morning appointment. The boys worked very fast and efficiently. They spared no details. The whole process took a short time and then our stuffs were on their way. We received the delivery right on the pre-scheduled date and the inventory list checked out. Nothing was broken or damaged. This move could have taken a serious toll on us but instead it turned out to be so easy.

Efficient and affordable

Moving so far away from home makes me miss a lot of things. But, at least all the things I own and can’t live without arrived safe and sound here. I hired Forward van lines to help me with the move. They gave me a very reasonable quote. The men who showed up were very apt and skilled. I think their quickness saved a lot of time and money for me. They put all my belongings in storage as I needed to look for a place in the new city. Yesterday was the first date I gave them for delivering my things and they called me yesterday saying the vans are reaching my place soon. I am very satisfied seeing how the furniture traveled. I am a happy client with these fab movers.

I’m very satisfied

At first I thought Forward van lines quoted quite expensively. But as I compared their quote with the other quotes I got, they were dirt cheap! On the plus side, they were very time efficient and my valuables reached my new home in great condition. I really tried weighing out everything. In the end, I figured that my valuables mean a lot more to me than how much they charged. But when they handed me the bill, it was way under the estimate and I was totally blown out of my mind. How they managed to perform such a precise move on that quote is beyond me. Perhaps their huge network and decades of experience can allow them to charge cheap prices for a superior service. Hire them- you won’t be disappointed.

Totally qualified

We were moving to escape from the city life and raise our kids around open fields and nicer people. We didn’t know which moving company to hire. After a glowing recommendation from a friend, we chose to hire Forward van lines. This company really means business. The movers arrived sharp at 10 am as they were supposed to. They packed up everything with military precision. God knows who trains these guys because they seem highly trained. Their experiences paid off while carrying out huge pieces of furniture. Everything went like clockwork and they were off to our new ranch after a short time spent on packing and loading. The delivery was made on time and the movers unpacked everything for us. I couldn’t believe how easy this move turned out to be.

I couldn’t fault them

Forward van lines was just amazing during my last move. They were very prompt to call me back with an amazing quote. The movers arrived sharp at 10:00 am as promised. They wasted no time while packing and loading my belongings. Everything went just so smoothly. They delivered right on time as well and all my belongings traveled excellently. Very rarely I get to see such efficiency. I tried to look for something negative but I just couldn’t find any!

My mind is blown

I hired Forward van lines for the reputation they have. They did an amazing job while moving my valuables all the way from my dingy old apartment to the brand new house I was moving into several states away. The movers arrived early and packed up everything very quickly. They were extra careful with my breakables. They took inventory thoroughly and matched the list when they delivered my goods. I cannot emphasize enough on just how good these movers really were. They made sure all my valuables were transported without any issue. I was just blown away by their performance.

Long distance move

I was moving quite a long distance away. But I just didn’t have the time to do it on my own because of my job. That’s why it was essential for me to hire a moving company although I own a handful of things. The company I chose was Forward van lines. They quoted very reasonably and asked specifically about my needs. The movers arrived right on time. Because there was no storage issues involved, the whole move took place in only a matter of days. I think I saved myself some serious time and hassle by hiring these professionals who are so good at their jobs.

Honest and trustworthy

It is really important for a moving company to be honest with their clients. Forward van lines made it very clear at the beginning that the packing material cost would be separately added and I have the option of providing my own. I decided to trust them with their own packing materials. I carefully watched the movers as they efficiently packed everything. It didn’t seem like they were using excessive amount of bubble wraps or shrinking tapes. The proof was in the bill. Only a few dollars’ worth of packing materials was added in it for a move that covered quite a long distance and many cardboard boxes. It’s reasonable if not anything else. I’m very happy with this company and how much integrity they displayed.

Simple way to move

Frankly, I chose Forward van lines to handle my valuables during my move because they quoted the lowest. I wasn’t expecting a lot from them. As it turned out, they were very professional. No frills like bubble wraps or ironed uniform. But they were very well trained for this job. The movers arrived right on time and they delivered my belongings in Iowa right on time as well. I am very impressed with their punctuality. The delivery was seamless and no damage was caused to any of my items. They made sure to work fast to keep the bill low. I had a great time moving with these guys.

Crazy good

I booked Forward van lines on a day’s notice! I talked to their manager for an hour explaining my situation. He understood of my requirements. The crew was dispatched early in the next morning. My house was a mess as the movers I hired initially made a complete mess out of packing and I had to let them go. The crew had to pick up where they left off and deal with the mess too. They did so quickly! Within an hour all our things were packed and loaded onto their van. The previous movers couldn’t do 10% of the work in a 6 hour shift. This makes me wonder if these small companies even know what they’re doing. Thankfully these guys knew what they were doing. They provided me with a stress free experience despite the fact that it was an out of the ordinary kind of job. I am very grateful to them.

Professional and definitely worth ...

I was looking at a couple of different companies and saw that Forward van lines had good ratings. When I called them, they sounded like they were trustworthy. After discussing and getting a quote with them, I found them very professional and able to give me good, logical answers on what can be done and they helped me through the process. They explained how things are weighed and measured and then, estimated our furniture. They did everything to make us comfortable. The moving crew was nice. Everything was just perfect.

They were the best

After the experience of five major relocation now, we are more than satisfied with Forward van lines. They are a team of knowledgeable, experienced, helpful and responsible professionals from top to bottom. We also think it is hard to beat these guys in terms of customer service and pricing. Our overall impression was very positive. When we will move next time and can choose these guys again, we would definitively do so. We can certainly recommend them to anyone else.

Mad strong movers

During my last move, moving with my family of five in just three days was the most important thing for me, maybe even more important than the price. We had loads of stuffs scattered around the house that needed to be sorted out. We had a lot of things that needed to be organized in boxes and numbered or labeled accordingly. The 4 men that were sent from Forward van lines were completely effortless and meticulous. I couldn’t be happier to move all of our things in such short time and to be able to move in our new home without worries or stressing out waiting for the delivery. These strong movers handled this move like true professionals and I’m forever in their debt for the way they conducted it.

Such a lovely way to relocate

I hired forward van lines based on their superb reviews on multiple websites. I heard about them before. My cousin told me about them. She told me how professional they were during her move. So I went with them. It was a lovely moving experience. The movers were on time and packed everything professionally. Seeing them work is a great experience. These men have years, if not decades, of experience and it shows! Nothing was broken or lost or even dented. They delivered my belongings just right on schedule. They helped me unpack and put my furniture in right places. Their price was affordable too. They didn’t overcharge me. I was happy with their service.

Careful with packing

Forward van lines kept me well informed throughout the moving process when we were relocating a few months ago. The move was well planned, and the movers were very professional. They showed up on time, cautiously but quickly finished packing and did not waste any time standing around. When my belongings arrived at the new house I was surprised to find my one small pen holder that I thought I lost many years ago. My goods came in perfect condition. I feel I was very fortunate to find them and be able to trust them with my household goods.

Exceptional services

The whole process from start to finish was exceptional with Forward van lines. Everything started with the first phone call with their rep. We are very satisfied with all aspects of our experience from the quote, communication, pickup and delivery to the re-routing of our goods etc. We felt like our belongings were being taken care of personally and not just another sale in their income stats. Our belongings were all delivered, intact, no damage, clean and had to have been handled carefully by how the boxes looked like they did when we packed them. The price they billed us was reasonable to say the least- other companies I talked to asked for twice as much. We were very impressed and would use them again if we move in the future.

Valuable items stolen after workers ...

May 25, 2016, the company sent three guys to carry out our stuff, both my wife and I were satisfied with their performance. Unfortunately at that night, we found many personal items stolen, which we put in the closet : my wife's necklace, diamond ring, etc, over 3,000.00 values. Worse, one credit card was also missed, someone kept shopping with that card in Walmart, over 850.00$ spent before we cancelled the card. !!! No one else accessed to our apartments that day, we saw our items in that morning. We reported to police, What I can do now is let people as many as possible know about this thing, avoid to be next victim, also update the status of case in public. I would like to retrieve the bad rate, after the company face the issue, and take their responsibility to solve it.

Overall, a great job, particularly in ...

I really appreciate how Nirva worked with me to help figure out what was worth taking with and what not in order to accommodate my tight budget. Roei stepped right in to be sure the scheduling was on target, and put my fears to rest. The team showed up when they said they would on both ends of the move, and Roei checked in regularly and made himself available "just in case.". As far as the movers themselves, they were courteous and efficient. There were a few casualties along the way, but nothing earth shattering. The worst I have to say at the delivery, they did have to be reminded not to scrape furniture across the hardwood floors, and we have a few scratched planks and pieces, but overall, they did a great job. In direct contrast to some of the other companies I talked to, Forward's people were professional, efficient, and trustworthy. I'm very grateful to have found them just in time for my cross-country move!

Highly recommend

This was our second cross country move. The first move was NOT with Forward Van Lines and it was a disaster with no contact with the movers until they arrived as well as many broken and damaged belongings. With lost hope in moving companies we were expecting a disaster again but Forward did a fantastic job!!! The crew that packed us and loaded onto the truck were very nice and respectful and worked very quickly. The same goes for the delivery crew. We appreciated that the foreman called in advance and gave us a window of when they would arrive. They were very careful unloading our belongings. Nothing was broken including very fragile and delicate wine glasses. Both crews worked extremely hard. The quote that Guy gave us prior to choosing Forward Van Lines was what we were charged with everything said and done. Nothing shady/no hidden fees. Roei who was in charge of coordinating our move way always available to answer questions and returned emails quickly. Highly recommend.

Great experience and highly ...

I got a price over the phone because I was outside of the coverage area but felt comfortable working with Beth and took a leap of faith on picking a mover cause they all sound good over the phone but the story changes once they have your money! This was not the case with forward van lines. Beth really tok the time to coordinate my move in a meaningful way and helped me to make arraignment with my building on delivery. In the original price that I received over the phone I was charged for a special delivery service because my building said there would not be access to the size of the truck the they needed, after all when the delivery actually took place the truck was able to fit without an issue and without even asking because I didn't even remember I received a check in the mail for the difference of $300 because the service was not used. My praise is because not only was the service great but to actually deal with a company that dose the right thing by there customer is a rare thing. They could have easily kept my $300 and I would not even have realized it. Thank you to Adam, Tony and Brian for handling my things with care and with respect you guys were awesome and thank you to Forward van lines management for doing the right thing.

CONSUMERS BEWARE This company FORWARD VAN LINES is the worse company ever if I can give a negative 5 stars I would but it doesn't allow me so I can only give a 1 star. STAY AWAY, Guy the owner or whatever he is LIES, and hides behind his desk, he says he will help you but then he is never there when you call him. FORWARD VAN LINES RIPPED ME OFF , had me sign bunch of paperwork with no price, and when I asked why isn't there any price on the forms they told me it will be filled out later with the estimate price. Once all my stuff was on the truck my price went from $2159 to $6500 for the same items, they added a bunch of nonsense fee's that weren't even on their contract, when I spoke with Guy he told me he will give me a discount, when I asked them to unload the truck they wanted to charge me $3000 to unload and put everything back in the house, I had no chose but to move with them, even though guy said he will help me with the move and provide me a discount, HE LIED HE NEVER DID, I had to pay out $6000.00. CONSUMERS BEWARE, THIS COMPANIES LIES AND TRICKS THEIR CUSTOMERS. I AM LAUNCHING A CAMPAIGN SO THIS DOESN'T''T HAPPEN TO ANY OTHER CUSTOMERS.. Unfortunately if I post a review on Yelp this review will be removed because they pay for their reviews on yelp

I tried for more than seven months (through emails, phone calls and letters) to solve my problem directly with the company, but they keep creating excuses and items that never existed during my initial negotiation. We agreed with the price of 1460 dollars for my shipment. After loading the truck with all my furniture (of course this was not mentioned any time before), they mentioned that I had to pay extra 250 dollars for a "van service" because "the streets where the delivery was happening were too narrow and the truck would not be able to go through". However, the van never showed up, and the truck perfectly fitted in the garage. But I never saw the 250 dollars again. They keep mentioning that I did not pay for the 250,00 and they came out with excuses and extra items to explain the difference in charges between the quota (1463,00) with the final amount paid (1700,00). However I clearly remember the conversation on the phone with the manager who said "he would charge me 'only' 250 for that extra van- but in exchange I would have to go on Yelp and make great reviews about the company". Well you were right about me posting a review... I had many items damaged during transportation. My king size spring mattress was delivered folded with ropes, as if it was one of those thin foam mattresses. Despite their own employees had told me that he never saw a mattress being shipped like that, and had written with large letters the word "BROKEN" on my final documentation, they denied the damage. After long fights they offered me 60 dollars "to retain my customer goodwill" (mattress was 1500 dollars). I also had items like home theater and cabinet totally ruined. They offered me a check last month with the amount that does cover 10% of my damaged items. And if we add the 250,00 that they owe me... no comments. Not only I feel cheated, stolen, but I deeply regret for trusting a company that does not deserve to handle my personal belongings.

Excellent job done by movers

They were excellent. There was absolutely nothing that I didn't dislike. They were professional, they did what they said they were gonna do. They were on top of their game as far as their timeliness. Everything they did was on the up and up. They were very good to work with. They were actually lower than some of the companies I had got quotes from. Everybody they worked with was very, very kind, like I said they were professional, and all of the gentlemen delivered the truck and delivered the stuff to me. They did a great job, there wasn't much for them to pack. There were a couple of items to be packed like blankets and stuff and they did a great job on that. Everything came in excellent condition when they got here. My advice is just for them to keep doing what they're doing.
