  • Allied Van Lines helped my move go smoothly

    Aug 1, 2009 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Arrived on time.  Worked quickly. Final price less than quote. Nothing broken.
    Cons: Some communication issues.

    Summary: After moving twice in 16 months and using professional movers both times, I'll never go back to the days of using U-Haul!  For my most recent move I used an affiliate of Allied Van Lines called Bailey's Moving & Storage.  Despite the ... read more

    Poor customer service by claims staff
    Poor Value for money paid

    Pros: Showed up on time.
    Cons: Deceptive, dishonest, lazy, unprofessional.

    Summary: Emmerick's Van and Storage, of Allied Van Lines, is probably the worst mistake we made while moving. We also did not check these reviews, and really wish we had. The salesman estimated our home would take 8 hours to load. We had already done all of the ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Most of our items arrived, except what they left on our front lawn.
    Cons: Everything else. AND NO KID GLOVES. Epinions toggle doesn't work.

    Summary: We chose Allied because the salesperson seemed genuine and trustworthy. Huge, huge mistake. They literally threw our belongings onto the truck, breaking and damaging numerous items. We took pictures of the truck, and every Allied representative agreed ... read more

    Pros: Kudos to Coleman American for having some good guys working for them in Alabama.
    Cons: Delivery outside the contracted timeframes.  Broken & missing items.

    Summary: I have made 4 other long distance moves before and never ran into the issues that I experienced with Coleman American (Allied).  The salesperson omitted packing from the original estimate and then shorted cartons on the second.  The paperwork ... read more

    Pros: None
    Cons: They have no respect for the customer or their belongings.  No communication.

    Summary: Moving with Allied was one of the worst experiences of my life.  The day they packed I had to watch over everything.  They banged the furniture around, put a hole in the wall (which we had to repair before we left) were totally inept and not ... read more

    Pros: Excellent packing of breakables
    Cons: terrible customer service and lack of responsiblity when they lose items or even damage them

    Summary: If you are in need of a moving company then look elsewhere than using Allied. We thought a business who has been around for over 75 years should know how to do business professionally and responsibly. We have learned this is not the case for Allied. They ... read more

    Cons: Bad. Bad. Bad.

    Summary: We used Allied twice in international moves. After the first time, I was hesitant to use them again but my husband's company encouraged me to do so. I did so and as they say "...fool me twice, shame on me..." The level of damage was unbelievable and even ... read more

    Pros: There were absolutely no pro's to this experience. .
    Cons: Everything. This company does nothing well. 


    Summary: This was, by far, the worst customer service experience I have ever had. All of my containers were labeled as "CU" for contents unknown. Very convenient given that when they lose 6 of your containers they get to assign an arbitrary value to them! Not ... read more
