  • Call Wheaton Van Lines, And Ask For Joe!

    Jul 13, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Professional service
    Cons: It depends on your driver

    Summary: Before I begin my review on Wheaton Van Lines, let me say that a move is only as good as the driver that picks up your furniture. We have moved many times, as my husband is retired from the military, and frankly the name on the moving van does not mean a ... read more

    Pros: NONE
    Cons: See above.

    Summary: It was bad from beginning to end.Wheaton is a HUGE moving company that uses agents to come to your house to give you non-binding estimates.  They then load your stuff, weigh it and call you with the actual cost.  In our case, it was 30% ... read more
