My belongings took too long to get ...

To be very frank, my experience was not that great with them. It was very difficult to get an idea about when the items would reach me in Woburn. It came very quite late. It came after 21 days ... There was no updates to me, you know, what is the progress there. I had to constantly call these guys and there was no one to provide straight answers for me.

All-around Poor Service and Experience

I would not do any business with Platinum Van Lines or their affiliates. They charged us 70% more than the original estimate, damaged several furniture pieces, missed their pickup window by 12 hours, missed their dropoff window by another 12 hours. I was forced to take more time off from work because of this and have accrued over $2000 in costs beyond the original estimate. Their customer service is horrid and I would never do business with them again.

The crew was extremely polite and hard ...

Let me start off by saying that Platinum Van Lines will be my go to guys from now on. I'm absolutely happy I went with them. I booked them two days prior to my move and within that time period, every emailed question I had was answered in a timely fashion. All the charges were explained and had no hidden fees were billed. My guys called me 20 minutes before they arrived and once they arrived they got straight to work. All my furniture was wrapped up nicely and well protected for its trip down two flights of stairs. The crew was extremely polite and hard working professionals.

Not too Shabby

I cannot say enough good things about Platinum Van Lines. We were referred by a co worker who had used them before. The bid process was easy and turned out to be quite accurate. They were very up front about the charges. On move day a crew of three showed up on time. Brian, Daniel and Ken. All three were excellent. They went right to work loading our stuff. It was an all day job and these guys worked tirelessly! No broken items or significant damages. Took great care to cover the doorways and stair rails for protection. Communication was outstanding from beginning to end. Platinum Van Lines is the only moving company for us from now on.

Well done Platinum

They were clearly professionals, and in their competence, I took great comfort. Not only were they sure-handed, polite, and efficient, they also possessed the much sought-after and frighteningly rare talent-set, popularly referred to as communication skills. From day one, I had a clear understanding of the services I was to receive and how much they would cost. In addition, I received follow-up email and reminder text messages, so I knew my appointment hadn't slipped through the cracks.

Didn't pay attention to my fragile ...

They got there four hours late. It was after 10:00 when they got there, my scheduled time was 6 p.m. They clearly don't pay attention to when you mark boxes, "glass" or "this side up" because I had pictures packed in a box that were upside down. They just didn't pay attention to the stuff that was fragile when it was clearly marked. And he didn't leave behind copies of the paperwork that I signed, so I've been calling to get copies of the paperwork and I haven't received anything yet.

Sales associate lied to me and I was ...

I would never use them again. This is my first long distance move and when I was looking around and talked to the sales associate they sounded really good. They made it that they were like a family company and were in a town that I grew up in and everything. They weren't one of the bigger names out there but I figured talking to him sounded great and everything so I went with him. Come to find out that all the information that he provided to me was inaccurate. He was actually a bad sales associate as the company told me. When the movers came everything was completely different than what I was sold. The customer service was very poor, I don't appreciate how some of the people talk. They're rude and they obviously don't put their current customers as a priority. I was put on hold because they were trying to make other sales. They told me the person I talked to, he was fired because he was misquoting people. They basically said SOL to you, you have to abide by our terms. I did not appreciate the service at all.

super customer friendly services

Ok so I just had these guys move roughly 200 boxes of admin paperwork from one storage facility to another and I have to say it was as easy as it gets. They sent 3 guys to do the work and showed up on time, did the work in only 3 hours and as they based the costs on time worked were as fair as ever. The best part is that they actually cost me 1/6th of the price of the other company that bid on this job for me.

I am so pleased

I recently had Platinum van lines handle my move. I was very impressed with the professionalism of the two gentlemen. They were very careful with all of my possessions. The entire move was efficient and cost effective. Also, it was a bitter cold day and there was no complaining :) Would recommend them to anyone, and if I ever move again I will definitely be using them.

Fast, efficient and very professional. I had nothing but big pieces of furniture to move and they got it done in about two hours. I was blown away by how efficient they were at moving everything.The Hugh Jackman of moving companies. Highly recommend, seriously.

thank you so much!

I was very impressed. They did a number of things that I don't think most moving companies would do, just to make my life easier. They even figured out how to take apart my IKEA sectional couch so it could be carried out.

best of the best

They wrapped items quickly and carefully and accepted my changes with a smile (yep, I decided not to have my old fridge go into my new kitchen after all. what a pain customer, i know).They took two breaks in almost 6 hours- 3 and 25 minutes. I'm all about breaks, especially when it's 1000 degrees out (ok, it was 98), but these guys kept going, going, going...

I will use them again for my next move!

The four times that I hired Platinum van lines, we had a different helper every time and they all were very nice and professional. This company is very accommodating - so much so that he moved me on a stat holiday so that I could get my office set-up for the upcoming work week. They were very careful with my things (not a thing was broken!), worked efficiently and are very reasonably priced. Moving can be a pain in the a** but josh and his guys make it a piece of cake!

worth every penny

The original movers we hired just didn't show up AT ALL! But Frank squeezed us in, gave us a very fair rate, and the crew did the impossible move in a small time frame for us. Will never forget them and can't thank them enough!

What a pleasant company to deal with!

Here's the kicker: I had guessed how much I thought the whole thing would be. It turned out to be LESS because the movers worked so quickly! All in all, I would highly recommend Platinum van lines to anyone needing help with moving.

Thank you for an awesome move

First, the price was VERY competitive with three other movers I was looking into.Platinum van lines was willing to match / beat prices from competitors who looked way dodgier. I got a flat price for my move and didn't pay a cent more after the initial estimate by the guy who came over to review the size of the move. so their price match is what won me over.

I used Platinum van linesfor my 3 bedroom apartment. Moving crew of 3 strong guys, uniformed in nice blue t-shirts, arrived on time. Truck was big and clean inside and outside. Movers spend about 5.5 hours to move my apartment. They took a lunch break but excluded it from the bill

Need to do an in-home estimate

They have to come before estimation, they have to look at all the things and then they have to give the estimation. At the end they should not change the amount. They have to give the quote correctly.

Company, packers were good

The company is good, the packers and the guys who came were good, I would certainly recommend. This drinking and all happened in one cases, and I think that should be avoided. But definitely let them know that they shouldn't drink when they are at work.
