TLS Van Lines Reviews

Everything started good from the beginning with the initial price estimate to the day they came to pick up my things. The gentlemen who packed my tvs and appliances did a great job in taking care of everything and making sure it was securely wrapped.
- Steven P.

Worst moving company in the world..We are still waiting for our things to be delivered it's been 3 weeks when we called Valerie she would always tell me I call you back and never did I request to speak to a manager he never called me because he was so busy in meetings. our house is with no furniture, and we still don't know when it will be here. We will never us this company again.
- Jenny C.

I got married and my cousin and I had to break our roommate situation. So she decided to move back to Miami with the rest of the family. We hire TLS to help her move back home. Even though our place was small we girls had tons of things to pack. They did a great job and most importantly organized job. Our furniture made it there with no incidents and her cloths and other belongings too. Great service from the moment you call to the final destination. Thank you Valerie and TLS for making it easy.

Big THANKS to everyone at TLS Van Lines for assisting me with my move from Los Angeles, CA to Phoenix, AZ! I moved a 4 bedroom home, they sent four strong guys, wrapped and packed everything with detail but fast! They did an excellent job! Price stayed in the agreed budget and job was delivered in 5 days as I requested! Definitely recommend TLS Van Lines to anyone looking for long distance movers 🙂
- Michel J.

"I found TLS Van Lines through Yelp about 3 months ago and I am very satisfied with their service! It is my second move with them and I am planning on using them again in the future! TLS Movers are AMAZING! Fast, experienced, careful, and professional and polite! Had to send some lots of boxes with merchandise for a new business location I'm opening in Vegas and everything went as planned. All of my items arrived safely. I get a discounted price since I am a returning customer which its a big plus! Customer service is great too."
- Eitan L.

I feel compelled to write a review for TLS Van Lines. I needed a mover to transfer some sentimental furniture pieces from my parents home in LA to my home in Seattle. After getting several quotes TLS Van Lines had the best prices (not cheap but best.) I did almost all of it on-line showing them photos of the pieces.Since I could't be there for the pick up my brother let them in and he said they carefully and expertly wrapped everything. There were some delicate glass and antique pieces that I was particularly concerned about. He watched them load the truck and about a week or so later they were in Seattle. I was delighted to see how well everything was wrapped, taped and boxed. I have to thank Valerie who communicated frequently by email and set everything up, Michael for driving up here and moving the pieces in with CJ who did an excellent job moving the larger pieces. They removed all the pieces from the boxes, took away the boxes and wrappings quickly and professionally. I now have reminders and family memories that will live with me and bring me joy daily. Thank you TLS Van Lines, Julie

They got it done! We relocated from California to Colorado. They even made the effort to find an earlier opening date for delivery (within 4 days of pick up) when they learned after we contracted them they did not have an opening for the original drop off date we asked. I was nervous as I had asked others on this forum for their feedback that had contracted them. The feedback was mixed between stellar reviews and the disappointment in the final cost to customer service. We looked at 7 bids from 7 vendors. Know to ask details like charges for the amount of feet the movers have to walk, how many stairs they have to climb and is your location and new location have access to a 83ft truck or smaller. Ask if they are physically inspecting your unit/house or if they only require pictures. If you are sending pictures TAKE PICS OF EVERY room and detail so you won't be surprised at cost. Be responsible for communicating what you need! These details are important. Although our final cost came in $3k more than TLS initially gave us, it was spot on close to King's relocation also on yelp. We picked TLS van lines because we were controlling the amount of boxes and cubic feet with TLS's moving team. These guys were helpful in controlling the cost, packing our items and working with us on the amount of supplies and the size of the truck. The other vendors quoted us on an additional small truck because the moving truck was either too large or would not have clearance in our new or old location (runs between $1500-2k in top of your moving costs). TLS accommodated a lot of our cost concerns this way by us providing a lot of detail. Overall we are happy with the outcome and all our stuff (a 3bdrm house+garage+storage+pet stuff to a 1400 soft 2bdrm apt!) made it safely and on time ! Valerie was awesome and patient with this particular customer!

I would highly recommend TLS Van Lines if you need to move. We needed to move across the country and I was nervous about finding a company to do this. I called Valerie in Los Angeles, and she was so helpful . She answered all our questions and was very patient working with us. After speaking with her, we felt much better about this big move. All our belongings arrived safely and in the time frame they promised. The men working to load and unload our belongs were very professional and efficient. They really knew what they were doing!! Thanks TLS for getting all our earthly possessions across the country and delivered to our new home!!
- Nancy C.

I'm giving one star for the moving crew, the driver was horrible, rude, disrespectful, and 3 days past the promised delivery. The driver tried to extort cash from from my daughter, leave my belongings on the curb and nothing was assembled. Don't waste your time or money with this company.
- Janet D.

TLS Van Lines was great. I worked with Valerie, and she was clear about everything. I was able to call her anytime and get questions answered. And she was very patient when I asked some questions twice. We were moving from Los Angeles, CA to Austin, TX. I was so nervous since I have heard so many horror stories about using a moving company. This was the first time I used one. I found that the pricing was cheaper than other big companies so I took a chance. I packed my own boxes, but they came at their schedules time and packed/wrapped all of our furniture and loaded the boxes quickly and efficiently. They are organized and label every single box and item with a numbered tag. Its a very organized process which is why they didn't lose any of my items. Upon arrival in Texas, everything was there. Not one thing was broken. Even some large pictures that I didn't get a chance to box (they wrapped them in blankets) arrived unharmed. Some things to note: They came to our Los Angeles home with a 26ft truck. But then our items were transferred to an 18 wheeler for cross-country travel. Our items arrived on an 18 wheeler with other families things. You must make sure that your new place can accommodate this huge truck otherwise you'll have to pay a fee for them to shuttle your items on a smaller truck They will charge extra for stairs. At first I wasn't too happy about it, but then, when I saw how many trips up the stairs they had to make, and how hard it was, I completely understand. I noticed that other peoples boxes in the truck appeared smashed. This is because they did't fill their boxes correctly/all the way to the top, and when stacked they started to collapse. I made sure all the boxes where filled to the top, and empty spaces were filled tight with sheets and towels, etc. Remember, your stuff is driving for days on a huge truck and the bouncing up and down will eventually collapse your boxes. Try to put everything in a box. Loose items are more difficult for them to handle and makes the process go slower. My boxes arrived in perfect condition. Speaking of boxes, make sure you just go and buy boxes from home depot or something. I bought 3 different size boxes and it was easy or Valerie to calculate my square footage because I didn't have a ton of use boxes with varying sizes. It also makes it much easier to pack your boxes in the truck and it will take up less space. You are charged for the amount of space to take up on the trucks. And the price varies depending on the amount. I took up about 800 sq feet and I was charged about $3.40 per square foot. You must understand that if you don't give the correct amount of boxes and furniture at the time of the estimate, that your price for moving could vary greatly. Make sure you tell the about EVERY SINGLE ITEM, or your quote could be way off. Even mention the laundry hamper and vacuum cleaner. I was very pleased with my service. They are professional and know what they are doing. The contracts explain EVERYTHING very clearly and I didn't have any surprises. Our stuff arrived in 7 days. I would hire them again in a heartbeat.

Thank you to TLS Van Lines for a very smooth relocation from CA to NY. We appreciate your hard work and for taking care of our belongings.We already recommended you to a friend of ours that need to relocate out of California as well. Keep up the good work!
- Tzion W.

Bullshit company overpriced. They're rude. Especially the foreman don't recommend this to anyone beware
- Cheyanne G.

TLS Van Lines provided an excellent moving experience. Loved how professional and accommodating they were during the entire moving process. They moved me from Pomona, CA to Naperville, IL. My things were handled with care and precision. This was one of my biggest concerns going into the move, so I'm glad that everything went according to plan. If you're looking for a competent moving company that meets your expectations during a long distance move, then this is the right company for you! I'd gladly recommend them to anyone who is about to relocate. Picking a company that can be trusted with your valuables is imperative. That's what you're getting with these guys.

PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS MOVING COMPANY!! I suspect most of the "good" reviews were written by owners or friends because this was the worst mover experience I have EVER had. We relocated a four bedroom house from CA to TX. First, I was told that they "don't need to come out to your home to give you a quote. You know what you have better than we do." So, the quote of just over $7,000 became over $14,000 on moving day! Obviously I underestimated - you know, me not being the expert. Then, they charged me $549 for 11 last minute boxes they threw some things in for us. They showed up at our new home in TX with all of our boxes - including many clearly marked FRAGILE - crushed together in the truck. The driver/leader of the TX crew was a complete jerk! He spent the entire day on his cell phone wandering around our house prodding the guys who were working their tails off to hurry and finish, even telling them when we bought them pizza and drinks for lunch, that they weren't getting paid for "time eating." When I had to leave in the afternoon to get my kids registered for school, this jerk started asking my husband continuously "are you finished with us?" Finally, they left without doing much of what we paid for - all patio furniture left unwrapped, patio table not put back together and 5' glass top left standing leaned against a wall, bedroom dresser mirror left sitting on the floor, and many other pieces unwrapped, I assembled, and stacked for us to deal with. Bottom line: this company is very unprofessional and I would NEVER recommend them to my worst enemy. Please save yourself the stress, heartache and financial burden of dealing with TLS Van Lines!!

TLC Van Line Movers are the worst movers I ve ever experienced. Relocating from Ca. to NJ. Minimalist 2 bedrooms furnitures. Valerie wheels you in with her attentiveness and assurance until you signed the contract. Quote of $2,600 turned into over $5K. Extra charges on mandatory for them to pack and it all arrived damaged. Pots n pans were also banged up(lid dont fit), mattresses warped in the middle, mirrors shattered, all the furniture are chipped and dented. Was not given 24hour notice as they stated instead called the day of delivery insisted balance and threatened to hand it over to storage with 10+calls while i was at work. I left work early, went around crazy to gather balance since banks were already closed. As if that's not bad enough, they arrived an 1.5 hour late and released himself right front of my building where I was reprimanded by the building manager. 2 elder men took over 5 hours huffing and puffing til 1am. Every items are damaged which was very noticeable due to all white furnitures that was purchased 6 months ago. Mattress, couch and clothings had funky odor being in the hot truck for 2 weeks which I was told that truck was temperature controlled. Took 3 months for the claim department to respond with a $96 dollar compensation. I'm pulling my hair out!!!!!!
- Y C.

Quick update for those asking -- more than 20 days after the original complaint, we finally got a callback from the owner of TLS who told us that the delivery driver, "misbehaved a little" with his sexually inappropriate and misogynistic behavior and offered us a monetary amount to remove this review. Please, don't use this horrible company!
- Sarah G.

Thank you for a great service! The movers just finished unloading and it all arrived in one piece after a long distance move from CA to VA. Valerie was very professional and patient with us and I will definitely recommend them to all of my friends and family!
- Shlomi A.

I think one star is still to much to give these guys. I have moved around the country more than your average person and I have never had such a terrible moving experience. Our stuff was handled very poorly and many items even arrived broken. Our driver was unbelievably disrespectful and their "customer service" (if you can even call it that) is a joke. For anyone reading this, please don't use this company and save yourself the head ache.
- Cory J.

Belonging arrived trashed and broken. It looks like they took a baseball bat to my grill and every box was crushed or ripped. Do not recommend. This company should NOT be delivering to BOSTON unless they make some major changes! Pickup: Showed up on time and packed up and loaded my stuff quickly which was great. However the movers spit out sunflower seeds in every room of my house (that I was still living in for 2 weeks) and all over the walkway. I had to then clean up spit-covered seeds. Gross!!! I had several items that were not on my list which made the price go up 33% for 20% more stuff??. The math seems fishy to me but I expected to be priced gouged for extra stuff based on the other reviews I read so ultimately this was not an issue for me. Delivery: No delivery date or range of dates were provided despite multiple requests for updates. Then the delivery company refused to drive their truck in the ENTIRE CITY of Boston and I was charged extra despite being assured that I only pay if the truck couldn't get to my building (which technically it could according to Boston City Hall). This was a bait-and-switch because they told me at delivery the trucks never come into the city under any circumstance (even if you are on a major access road like my apartment) which was NEVER disclosed upfront. Also all trucks are required a parking permit in Boston which needs 48 hours notice in the city and they only give you 24 hour notice. My boxes were all "heavy duty" bought new and the vast majority arrived were CRUSHED and RIPPED. Check out the photo. Customer service on the phone was great.

I had a very good experience with TLS Van Line Movers. From getting a quote for moving from California to New York was simple and straight. The men that showed up were very professional, efficient, effective and courteous. They help us to wrapped and packed everything with details. There was 0 space left on that truck. They provided great service and took great care of our furniture. We will certainly be using the company again.
- Daniel W.

With TLS Van Lines everything went smoothly from start to finish. They took an inventory of our belongings and issued a reasonable quote that was totally within my budget. They used quality packing supplies and appropriate moving equipment so nothing was damaged. They were very careful while loading and unloading my goods. Everything reached my new home intact. Their representative called after the move to check if everything went according to plan. They deserved all my respect and a nice tip as well. I will be happy to refer them to all my friends.
