Allied Van Lines Reviews

Allied/Coleman Movers. I do NOT recommend Allied Coleman, dealing with them has been extremely stressful and resulted in some of my precious belongings being damaged. Being a retired Naval officer, I have moved 14 times in my 30 career. Most moves have gone seamlessly, even the overseas ones. That all ended with this most recent move from SC to FL. Our initial contact with Allied was quite pleasant with a reasonable quote and the promise of personal, hands on service and a pledge to be there throughout the move. Little did we realize that this pledge was to be at a distance… and not always accessible. The pack-out was scheduled and a team of three came to pack out a three bedroom house with garage in one day. They were subcontracted by Allied and started work at 10 in the morning to begin their work. They worked all day and as the evening approached, they were less careful and when we asked about certain things not being packed, they indicated that the loaders would do it the next day and that they would leave packing material to make that happen. The next morning when the driver and the two loaders arrived, the first thing they did was to complain that the packers had neither packed everything they should have and the packing they did was inadequate. I have never seen loaders move so slow and be so inefficient in their loading. Once again, the driver also complained about the loaders. By the middle of the afternoon, it became evident that not all our belongings would fit on the truck and an overflow load was scheduled for pickup. Our contact person at Allied who pledged to be with us throughout this move was of little help and finally found someone to come later to pick up the rest of the load. The person who picked up the overflow saw it as an inconvenience to come and pick up the rest of my things and treated them so...(the most damage came from this partial shipment). On the last possible day to deliver the household goods, the driver arrived with a new team to bring the load into the house. Once again, the driver complained about the previous loaders as the new team was taking things off the truck and as a result, we could see evident damage which we recorded. A few days later the overflow arrived, delivered by a different driver than the one who picked up in SC. These goods had been transferred to his truck as he was making a delivery to our area of FL. He complained about the previous driver and noted damages even before he picked up some of the items. The result was that over $7000 in damages and allied covering $2700 of that. They damaged a painting and my Henkel Harris table as well as numerous other items. They also lost a Tunisian rug which they did not reimburse me with. Needless to say, it was a mess. Everyone is a subcontractor and everyone complained about the inadequacies of the other. Allied’s coordination and help was minimal and insufficient. There are better and more efficient moving companies.

I hired Allied moving company to move me January 2020 from Texas to North Carolina. Overall the move went pretty well. I packed everything myself, having said that, once I got to my destination which was North Carolina there were several items broken. I purchased large floor size vases from Europe. Those were broken along with other items and allied sent me a letter after I submitted the claim stating that because they didn’t pack the items they were declining my claim so they paid for a couple of the items that were broken. What I don’t understand is why would they pay for a couple of items that were broken of which they did not pack and not pay me for all of the items that were broken. That they did not pack...? Sounds like an excuse to not have to pay. They are trying to get over and it’s not right. They Should be held responsible for all the items broken and this is their way of getting out of having to pay the full amount... paying as less possible of course! I’ll never use them again.

We had a great move from Chicago To Indy during COVID-19. Ernie and Terry were our primary contacts and they were great at keeping the communications up. They brought their own PPE and washed their hands frequently. They packed everything up and delivered it to our new home in 3 days. I couldn't have asked for a better experience.

We moved from Elkhart IN to Ponce Inlet FL. Paid for full pack and move with insurance $13,700. We have 4 reclining couches which required disassembly and the assembly at the new location. The assembly team in FL stripped nearly every bolt hole due to improper assembly. They have denied my claim stating the couches are functional. How about expecting them to be in the same condition they were in prior to the move. We will be moving again in about a year and the stripped threads I’m sure will be an issue. I highly recommend anyone that reads this finds a different company for their move. Allied doesn’t stand behind their work or their insurance

Criminals! They lack any measure of integrity. Allied Van Lines is just plain crooked. I signed on the dotted line for a "not to exceed" guaranteed price. When they delivered my belongings, they demanded nearly $2000 MORE, saying they would not release my possessions unless the total new amount was paid. Their contractors they source to do the move - a total joke. They loaded hand trucks so high that they couldn't see over them, repeatedly slammed into stacks they couldn't see to avoid, causing boxes to tumble and more items to break. Items that were wrapped at the time of pickup were unwrapped at the warehouse with severe damage ensuing, resulting in over $10000 worth of items ruined. Their so-called insurance? They cut me a check for just over $500. Total criminals.

The best thing I can say about them is they did show up to pack and load on time. The delivery was two days late. The crew that came to deliver were rude and only interested in getting out as quickly as possible. NEVER USE EITHER ALLIED OR NORTH AMERICAN!

USE ALLIED AT YOUR OWN RISK, they lost or stole 2 of our items, PLAYSTATION 4 AND THE ORIGINAL NINTENDO 1988 CONSOL STILL IN THE BOX, Damaged our new samsung dryer and an antique drawer, 5 boxes with fragile wrtitten were damaged also. We moved from south carolina to Pensylvania and hired these guys, which was the biggest mistake we have ever made. They were super friendly when giving me a quote and taking my money but when things got delivered and i complained about the missing items and damaged goods, they just kept passing me from one dept to another, Spoke to a lady on their claims dept named Cindy who wouldn't listen to a word i had to say on the first call and just kept telling me to fill out the claims report when all i wanted to do was explain what had happened with our items and if she could verbally give me more information, but no she did not want to talk and i swear to god even said if you are not happy you can file a complaint with the Police. I mean what!!! I was furious inside but stayed calm on the call as im not a confrontaional person. I wanted her to tell me the process of how they can find my things not fob me off like she was trying to do and tell me we have the right to take upto 90 days to look into your claim and tell me we would write to you not call you.. lol.. I couldn't believe it but obviously couldn't do anything either so i said ok. After a month and half, They refused any claim on the missing items as they put it was not on the list they made. Please note they Loaded the truck with hundereds of item from our house, once the truck is loaded the driver comes to you and asks you to sign the sheet confirming everything was loaded. Now what i see on the sheet is total jargon some items like sofas, washer dryer like big items were clearly there and the number of boxes, so i looked and signed it, not knowing they did not actually write playstation and nintendo, i assumed as it was in the box they just wrote box like they did with many other electronic items. Example Kureg didnt say kureg on the sheet, airpurifier etc, it just said box, but we got those and surprisingly not the the game consols. lol. If that is not delibrate theft please tell me what is. Percentage of yourself puts alot of trust in the comapny so you also assume they cannot get lost or stolen lol how mistaken was i. We consider ourselves good and honest people and wouldn't just a make a claim for the hell of it. We tipped the 3 pick up drivers 100 dollars cash and gave them 4 bottles of alcohol worth over a 100 dollars and also gave the drop off driver 120 tip, so this claim wasn't just about the money. These were our things which we put 100% trust on this company to deliver back to us and it make's your blood boil when anyone steals from you like they did. This was the first time we used a moving company and learnt alot, and learnt that you should just pay a little more and use a more reputable company than one that steals your goods and won't help you when something they did goes wrong. I would never write a negative review if i wasnt happy with just the service, but when someone steals from you, you bet i will go all out to make sure this doesn't happen to no one else and that they should avoid these pirates at all cost. Absloute disgraceful Company.

Do not use this company as it is a complete joke. They do a poor job and forget trying to file a claim because they give you a run around and then deny you with no proof of reason. Just don’t do it!

Preparing to move, my family and I rented a large UHaul to transport some furniture and essentials. We knew there would be an unavoidable risk of breakage en route, and accepted that some of our things would be damaged no matter how well packed. However, we hoped that hiring professionals who do this very thing for a living, and present their unique training as cause for specialized retention and payment, would mitigate that risk We were gravely mistaken in choosing Allied Van Lines (through Alliance Moving Systems, in Gypsum, CO) and write this to hopefully save someone else the same heartache. On load day, I provided plenty of boxes, packing blankets, wrapping paper, tie downs and plywood sheets. I explained to the movers that this load would be going across the county and traversing several mountain ranges, so I needed firm security. While loading, I noticed they were wrapping all the furniture in only a bit of cellophane, and they refused my request to use the blankets, obliging me to call their supervisor. I was told essentially to mind my own business, but the blankets were indeed utilized—to wrap pillows! The majority of the wood furniture was carelessly protected, the boxes were stacked haphazardly without regard to weight order; many heavy boxes were stacked up high, and only a few horizontal straps applied, while most of the plywood sheets were stacked inanely on the side. This and more were discovered when we began unloading. A full stainless steel grill was demolished due to collapse of top heavy loading, and heavy boxes were found to have been loaded on its flimsy, unsupported wings; a curve-armed wooden loveseat was stood on end, and heavy boxes fell on the ribs en route, bursting them; glass shelves to a curio cabinet were wrapped in a few pieces of paper, stood on end loose against the wheel well and were discovered shattered; dumbbells were placed randomly throughout load, and one 20lb weight was found sitting on a naked wood armoire into which it had gouged a hole, and many other boxes, pieces of furniture and equipment suffered damage ranging from crush injury to utter destruction, which were too varied and numerous to warrant specific recording. Meanwhile, again, the blankets I provided went to wrap pillows, the boxes I had collected went unused, etc. Thus, all my efforts to prevent the worst by providing supplies were disdained, my respectful concerns were met with deplorable customer service, our belongings were treated with downright contempt, and we ultimately suffered excessive--and needless--loss.
