TERRIBLE company. Bad communication. ...

I can concieve how it is that the company ahs anything more than negative five stars in their rating. Communication is absolutely non existent and their owner down not return calls, texts, or emails. We contracted them out to pack our apartment move our stuff from Chicago to Seattle. They didn't show up and no explanation was given nor any solution presented. They finally just said "find other arrangements". Mind you this is literally on our moving day. we were left desperate and distraught. I've never been so stressed in my life. They also collected a $1275 deposit from us that has not been refunded. Unacceptable. Stay away from this place!

Customer for Life!!

The crew arrived on time and moved all of our things efficiently. We packed in a way such that the movers didn't have to do anything other than move our things. Prep work is key in any move. They unloaded the things quickly and safely as well, all the while being courteous and professional.

Five stars for sure! Thanks again, ...

They were on time, worked fast, worked hard and were careful with all our stuff - of which there was a TON. Our old house had so many stairs but they handled it all wonderfully, no complaints and they made it all seem like a breeze. The whole team had great attitudes and we couldn't be happier. Five stars for sure! Thanks again, guys!

My move was wonderful

I am sure that Great Lakes Van Lines is one of the best movers. I was lucky to have this company helping me out during my recent move. The sales rep was very helpful from the start to finish. He gave me confidence, ensured a safe and sound move and gave me in written that there will be no hidden fees. The foreman with his team did wonders. I had plenty of valuables and breakables and some heavy old furniture. So, I was mentally ready to see some damage but I was hoping to keep the count low.When they delivered my belongings, they asked me to check the inventory. I checked and surprisingly nothing was damaged or broken, not even a glass. I will surely reuse them for my future moves.

Excellent relocation moving services

Awesome moving experience with Great Lakes Van Lines. Movers were friendly, professional, fast and hard-working. I was worried about paying by the hour, but needn't have worried with them. They never slowed down, even when the lift on their truck gave them an unexpected problem. Mostly it was furniture and some home decor items, so a lot of large and heavy things. The whole move was done in 3 hours. I will definitely call again if i need to relocate.

Classy and efficient crew

I hired Great Lakes Van Lines for my recent move. They were very accommodating to my needs. The sales rep answered all of my questions and was very polite .They told me when they would be there and showed up at that time. The movers packed all of my things up and moved quickly to my new destination. Great moving company.

I would recommend their moving service

I will give this company a standing ovation, they really know what they're doing and it doesn’t feel like they are trying to sell a service or push you to book the shipping with them. They’re a customer-friendly service and personal care to the customer is extraordinary. These guys are professional. I had got many boxes and they finished loading in 2 hours. The movers are very polite and work hard. I am really happy with the service rendered by Great Lakes Van Lines

I am very satisfied with them

Great Lakes Van Lines is an exceptional mover because they care for you. I am so satisfied that I chose these guys to move me. They packed everything and when we arrived at my new place they rearranged all my furniture where I wanted it. It did not cost much; actually the quote was pretty low. In addition, I got an excellent service. They made my moving smooth and easy. This is all I wanted. And also there were no damages. If you want a move with no headache, call Great Lakes Van Lines and forget about all the problems

Absolutely Great

There are many relocation companies I have worked with previously but none of them displayed the high level of professionalism that Great Lakes Van Lines did. Sincerely I am thankful to them since I didn’t notice to have lost any property in the process. They carried out their work with so much diligence and I would love to thank them for that. To be honest, I can only compliment this company from start to finish. It was an awesome experience in all aspects. I would definitely use them again.

Memorable moving experience

The experience is still clear in my memory. I cannot forget a single thing about the wonderful relocation that went down last week. It was an awesome experience in all aspects. At the moment the movers got it, I felt relieved. From their outward look, it was all clear that there was indeed something unique about them. Few minutes after arriving, they got into work. It was all clear why I had that feeling because the job they did was so great. i will definitely hire Great Lakes Van Lines for my next relocation.

True Professionals

I was very happy with the service provided by Great Lakes Van Lines. The moving team turned up on time and were friendly and working hard from the first moment. They were really efficient and professional. We were worried about picking a mover after a bad experience last time, but we will definitely return to this moving company next time we need to move.

Made our move less stressful

We have tried moving on our own and hiring professional moving companies. None seemed any better than the other. Then a friend suggested that we should hire Great Lakes Van Lines. I called them for a quote and the number blew my mind. I didn’t quite know what to expect but what they delivered was amazing. Everything was professional about the movers. They arrived on time, worked efficiently around the house and delivered everything in intact condition. I couldn’t believe how easy they made our move.

Awesome Moving Experience

I have a lot of respect for Great Lakes Van Lines because they are not profit seekers. They were so dedicated to their job. The movers were fast in conducting the move and there were no scratches or anything broken with my things. They wrapped, packed and loaded everything in the shortest possible time. All my belongings arrived safely. When they handed me the final bill, I was absolutely astonished to see that there was no added charges on it- just the exact amount they quoted! I’ll be a returning customer because they gave me a delightful moving experience.

Easiest move of my life

Having to move frequently means that I know how most moving companies operate. The only time I was satisfied was when Great Lakes Van Lines handled my move. They quoted reasonably, movers showed up on time and everything went as smoothly as it could. All four movers were very experienced. They took such great care of all my things. It was comforting to know that my valuables were in good hands. They delivered everything on time, unpacked and put them where they belonged. If I move again, I will hire them again.

I can only say good things

The movers I had hired in the past were stubborn and all they wanted to do was to finish the job so they can move on to another one. Safety of my belongings meant nothing to them. During my last move, I hired Great Lakes Van Lines to help me move my valuables. Their men were different for a change. Their work was absolutely meticulous. But what really impressed me was their ability to take instructions and be polite. It’s a hard job but being able to do it with wit is definitely praiseworthy. I really enjoyed moving with them. I surely will be only hiring them from now on.

A+ service

I was in need of an urgent move and had no option but to look for a company which would assist me with swift and immediate packing, at that point of time my friend recommended Great Lakes Van Lines and that turned out to be the best decision I have ever made in terms of my packing need. They completely proved their metal, there was so much stuff that needed urgent movement and the task was really difficult. People who were working needed to be professionals; there was a lot of expensive stuff that needed careful handling. Lots of expensive crockery and things that were just very dear to us and we wanted transported without any damage. To be honest I had never heard of Great Lakes Van Lines and I thought twice before I finalised them. On my friend’s compulsion we did go ahead and just got A Class service. There was no damage, no price change and no deviation at all from the terms to what the company and we had agreed. Perfect shift at the end and that’s about it.

The Moving Experts

I just cannot gather words to share how fantastic my experience has been with Great Lakes Van Lines. Firstly, their representative who we spoke to over the phone was experienced, well informed and answered all our questions patiently. The crew that arrived was way beyond our expectations. They were polite, and very careful with our belongings. We had things in every room that they were to take and not to take which was quite confusing. I was happy to have them in my home. They packed everything perfectly and delivered safely. I checked the inventory and nothing was missing. These men are indeed gems. This has been a stressful period for us but these guys helped us to make it less stressful.
