Excellent experience from start to ...

Excellent experience from start to finish! The estimate was timely and right on. The guys were on time, clean, polite and showed extreme care with my belongings. They worked hard from the time they arrived when they left, and they far exceeded my expectations in performance and value. Would work with them again if the need arises. Happy to find a company that cares so much about the moving business.

Short move in simple way

We were literally moving a few blocks away. I pondered the idea of doing it on my own but came to the conclusion that hiring Forward van lines would actually be cheaper. I was right. They charged me a very small amount and clinically performed the move for us. The whole move was done in 2 hours. Nothing suffered any damage, including my bank account. These guys are amazing.

I had fun with this move

This is not the first time I moved. But it's the first time I moved without having to go mad with stress. Forward van lines took on the duties so well that I really had nothing to worry about. Their movers were highly trained and they worked very fast to pack up all my valuables. They delivered on time and all my belongings were safe. They even unpacked for me. They charged the exact amount they estimated. I realized that I actually had a lot of fun with these guys during my last move.

Quite cheap for this level of service

I would have taken a few broken pieces if that meant I had to pay less for this move. After contacting several moving companies, I settled on Forward van lines because their quote was the lowest. I knew that cheap companies do poor jobs. But luckily this company was not only cheap, but they were also very capable. They must have way too many clients to make up for the price they charge. I was very happy to see how efficiently the four men worked around my house. They took great care while handling my breakables. They managed to deliver all my valuables unharmed and I couldn't be any happier.

Cost and time efficient

Some companies quote low and the crew takes forever to pack and load your belongings, ultimately costing you a lot of extra bucks. Forward van lines, however, employ a group of very efficient men who are more concerned about getting the job done properly than how much time they can waste. I’m very satisfied with the way they handled my move last month. Their quote was so inexpensive, the movers were punctual and they made the delivery with all my belongings in excellent condition. The movers really managed to work very fast which saved me a lot of money in the end.

They ensured the best service

The team of Forward van lines was awesome. Everyone was hard workers. It was so reliable and trustworthy company. They did great wrapping and packing. I like their management. All their employees are very much sincere and honest. Last month I used the mover for a big relocation service. I had five rooms’ big apartments and I was moving all my belongings. The crew came with uniform. I want to say that it was so enjoyable move and must low price. There is a brunch of their office on my new place. So I gave my bill to that location. Billing system was perfect. I will recommend them to my friends and office seniors.

Hardworking and professional movers

I hired Forward van lines to move all my belongings because they were highly recommended by my sister. To be honest, I didn’t really know much about them when I hired them. But they turned out to be just amazing. They quoted quite rationally. The men who came over to my house to packed my valuables very skillfully. They even worked very time efficiently. All my stuff were packed and loaded very fast. When they delivered everything, I found that everything traveled very well. I really think these guys are amazingly professional and very good at their job.

Everything was perfect

I don't ever want to move again without the help of Forward van lines. This company has treated me with professionalism and attention throughout the whole move. Honestly I couldn't ask for anything more and I’m happy with the outcome. My things arrived when they should and nothing is damaged or messed up. Best of all, they follow a strict delivery schedule and everything came in at the exact date it was supposed to.

They were terrific

I used Forward van lines. I have used a lot of movers and these guys put everyone else to shame. They were so polite and experienced. My furniture was wrapped and then wrapped again. I moved an entire house of furniture and for the first time no damages. My office contact and my driver was did everything possible to help us. Awesome from beginning to end. I would say anyone looking for movers call these guys.

More than perfect

The movers from Forward van lines were supposed to arrive at 10 am to move our valuables. But they actually arrived early. Anyway, the movers came and started packing everything immediately. They took inventory of all my belongings and put labels on each box. The breakables were delicately packed into boxes and they used a lot of tapes to secure them. They carried all the furniture with care. They delivered everything the next day and put everything exactly where they were supposed to go. It was an incredibly easy move.

Total pros

When it comes to relocation, they are better left on professionals. Forward van lines is a very old company and it has the best movers. I felt completely at ease leaving my things in their hands. They maintained timings and behaved politely throughout my move. All my valuables were packed properly and delivered on time. The best part is that they charge just as much the cheapest moving company out there. But these guys provide a much superior service.

Just amazing

I hired Forward van lines to move my stuff without knowing much about them. It turned out to be a really good decision. The movers arrived right on time fully prepared to my doorsteps. They packed up everything very quickly and loaded everything onto the van. The whole process took such little time that I was just shocked. They were supposed to deliver a week later. They delivered on day 03. I am just so satisfied with their services.

Smoothest move

Our move went very smoothly only because we hired Forward van lines. When I called them for a quote, they seemed friendly and I was called back soon with a quote that was more than fair. The movers arrived very much on time and they wasted no time while they were on the clock. All my belongings were safely packed inside boxes. Then along with the furniture, the boxes were systematically carried outside to the van. It was a very successful delivery as nothing got broken or damaged. It was the easiest move of the history.

I expected perfection and I got it

Every piece of furniture I own means something to me. When I hired Forward van lines, I told them clearly about how most of my furniture was passed down the generations from our forefathers. My family takes a lot of pride in our family heirlooms and I expected nothing less than perfection from this moving company while moving my things. I can sum up the review just by saying that they delivered every piece of furniture in the exact condition they left my old house. But that wouldn’t be fair to this company. I have to write about how efficient their workers were. They worked so carefully and skillfully packing everything. They even wrapped the edges of every piece. I have to give these guys credits for their efficiency. They were quite fast at their job. All that efficiency come a very reasonable price which astonished me the most.

I am a repeat customer

Their foreman and crew were excellent. When he knew traffic would delay his pickup, he called on time and let me know when he may be arriving based on traffic. His experience and professionalism was clear, and he didn't waste any time which I really appreciated since the charges are hourly. He took great care to ensure the furniture and house was not damaged. I have used Forward van lines twice and will use them again.

Fabulous moving company

Having Forward van lines conducting my move was really a blessing. It was so easy getting a quote from them in the first place. On top of that, the customer service was very prompt and friendly. And what can I say about the movers? They were just too good. They showed up on time with all the proper tools. They immaculately packed everything. Then the loading process went very smoothly as well. Even they delivered everything on time. It was such an easy move, thanks to Forward van lines.

Just hire them

My last move was perfect. I hired Forward van lines to move my belongings 3 months ago. The guy on the phone suggested that I prepare everything the night before and book the movers for the morning shift which was at 7:30 am. I took on advice and he really was right. The men were fresh and not tired at all. They worked so efficiently that my 2-bedroom apartment was packed and empty very swiftly. I think the movers get tired as the day progresses and become slow. It really saves you to book the earliest appointment if you want to save some money.

I am impressed

They had an easy job moving my items from one unit to another in the same building. They showed up on time, did a nice job, and were in and out in basically an hour. I would hire them again. Their prices were EXTREMELY REASONABLE. At first I tried to contact that College Hunks hauling junk and they were trying to charge me a minimum of $500 to literally move my valuables down the hallway, from one unit to another. This company also did a nice job because I called them the night before moving and they were available.

Best way to move

If you want a stress-free move, hiring Forward van lines is the way to go. At first, I thought of them like any other moving company- inefficient, lazy and all-talk-nonsense. I wasn’t expecting much from them given the low estimate but they really surprised me. The movers arrived right on time to start moving our belongings. They wasted no time in packing everything neatly. I have rarely seen such efficiency before in my life. The delivery was made on time and all my valuables traveled very well. It was the easiest move of my life and I only have these guys to give the credits to.

I recommend Forward van lines to everyone who would want a smooth and spotless move for their personal belongings.

My valuables travelled well

I pursued my dream and it didn’t work out. So it was time to move back home. I hired Forward van lines because the company was referred to me by a friend. When I called them, they seemed very friendly. It was quite easy to get a quote as I didn’t really own too much. The movers showed up bang on time I even got a call 30 minutes prior to their arrival. This company takes customer care very seriously. The movers were all very efficient. They packed up my studio apartment in no time. My valuables were delivered on the scheduled date and nothing went missing. I received unbelievable services at a really low cost.
