Average Experience!!!

They packed everything neatly but we noticed that there were some scratches in our furniture and they gave us one price and ended up with another. Overall, I'm okay with the services provided by these movers.

"Reliable Services at Very Reasonable ...

These movers were very good. I spoke to several moving companies but these movers were at very reasonable prices. I just sent a list of items I had that I was moving and requested quote. That's it. They did exactly what they said before. I'm totally happy with their services and I'll definitely use them again.

make you a happy customer

My experience was nothing short of perfect. I can't begin to express how great of a company this was. They were hassle free and they really worked to help me out. The dispatch and customer service department was so friendly and made sure my move was executed correctly. I am not very familiar with moving companies since this is my first time moving but what I can say is that Great American Van Lines will make sure you are a happy customer!

PLEASANT EXPERIENCE

Great American Van Lines helped me move from CT to AL and I could not be more pleased with their service! Great American Van Lines changed my outlook on moving companies. Not once did the moving guys complain, they packed everything delicately and organized, and best of all, not a single item was damaged! They were very polite and professional, and made what usually is a nightmare (having to move EVERYTHING across states, into a new home) into a pleasant experience. When it came to unpacking, they helped put all the heavy furniture exactly where I wanted, and did so, again, without damaging anything! Great American Van Lines is by far the best moving company I have ever hired. Between the fair price, professional and polite staff, and the best customer service I have ever had with movers, I felt compelled to post this review about my experience with Great American Van Lines !

It was good

It was good, they were fast so they were hitting the ground very quickly. I think they wrapped it up within 2/2.5 hours so it was a good experience overall. Except I had paid $50 initial deposit looks like they're making me pay for those $50 anyway I did not understand their calculations, I just gave it to them anyway.

Timeline is a variable but it was good.

The price is pretty competitive, the timeline is variable because it took them a week for the truck to leave the warehouse in NJ but after it left it only took a couple of days.

I would rate myself 60% satisfied

Until now, it was like 60% I would say satisfied, and the reason I say that is because we have given our whole household stuff to them and we're still waiting for them. So I would rate myself 60% happy.The pricing was reasonable, but then they came in all the stuff was packed up and everything, I do understand volume and everything but that should have been communicated. They have taken half of the payment, but we ended up paying more.

Everything went great!

Contacting dispatch was great. I believe the person who helped me was named Glen. He was very attentive to my needs, it was just a partial home move, so it wasn't like I was moving my whole house it was just myself and the day of the move I would have to say the movers were very efficient, professional and everything went great.

awesome job

I'm very satisfied with Great American Van Lines. Their customer service is one of the best. I knew exactly what to expect even before I booked them. This was a last minute move, and they were able to accommodate me. The move was hassle-free and they exceeded my expectations. This was my first time moving out of state, and I must say that they did an awesome job. Highly recommended.

Great experience

Yes! I used Great American van lines for my long distance move about a week ago. My destination was from NJ to CT. It was a great start and awesome ending. I really liked their performance, third time I used this mover. Overall best coordination. They were much better than other good movers! Packing and wrapping quality was highly professional. Didn’t find any unwrapped fragile things. I paid my bill and it was totally affordable. I have used them three times therefore I gained a voucher from the company and It was a surprise for me! Thanks Great American Van Lines for everything.

They were Great!

They were great when they got there, they were just late to get there.They were supposed to get there between 9 and 11 AM and they didn't show up until 1 PM. Other than that they were phenomenal, they were great. Pricing was very good, very competitive and there was a little change in the pricing they quoted me $300 when they got there they had to wrap some glass stuff up and charged me $100 dollars extra and honestly, it was still below what others quoted me. There was no damage, they were in and out, it was quick it was efficient, other than the fact that they took a little longer to get there, I've got no complaints. They were great!

It was fine

They called me the day before I moved and told me they would come between 8 and 10 am. The next day they called me saying they had some trouble with the truck, so they were late. The moving was pretty smooth, so I was satisfied with that part. When they charged me, somehow they double charged me. So I called them and they took out the second charge, so it was fine.

PLEASANT EXPERIENCE

We received a quote from another very popular moving company in Mass., but it was so high that we searched for another company to compare prices. Great American Van Lines quoted a price that was less than half the "Big Company" quote. Office staff was courteous, and the three gentleman showed up on time, greeted me with a smile, and were clearly professional and experienced. The move was long distance to California, and while the relocation is a cross country move, it was still half the price of the "other guys". We were very pleased. No extra charges, no nonsense, quick delivery period and if a move can be considered a pleasant experience, this one met that test. Recommended.

GREAT SERVICE

I've used Great American Van Lines for my moving to my new Florida home. I was frustrated before with moving companies but these guys were amazingly quick and responsible. There was nothing broken or damaged at the end and I had a lot of fragile things. They came on time and got both pickup and delivery a few days later! Great service and will definitely use them again in the future.

SMOOTH MOVE

I really enjoyed the experience with Great American Van Lines. They were on time, got our move done quickly and efficiently. The movers were very respectable and handled our belongings with care. The first move was to our storage unit, and then when we move into our new place. I would recommend Great American Van Lines to anyone in that is looking to move and have a smooth transition in the process.

Satisfied but...

Initially when I was contacted by the company and asked to give an estimate the number of things we have to move, I randomly gave them the number of boxes which I thought would be the number of boxes that need to be moved to the new place, but it turned out that the number of boxes we needed to move the whole house was much more than I thought it would be. So the estimate the initially gave me was way lower than what I was actually charged. It was way beyond what I expected even for the increase in the number of boxes.

Great job

This moving company is one of the best I have dealt with yet. The prices are affordable and they are friendly yet professional. They were very cautious with my belongings, even when it came to our pets items. I am very pleased with the work and would highly recommend them to others. They showed up ahead of schedule ready to work. Nothing at all was damaged in any way and for that I am truly pleased. Great job guys!!!

I would definitely recommend this ...

My wife and I were very happy with our experience with this company. We hired them to do a long distance move. The movers were extremely efficient and professional. They accommodated us when we had to change times at the last minute which really saved us a lot of hassle. I was hesitant at first to hire them because of so many horror stories I have heard from friends and family about other moving companies but it turned out to be a great experience and value. I would definitely recommend this company.
