    Most companies these days would have such lucrative advertising that you feel like all of them are so good at it. Truth is, sadly, most of them are duds. I talked to many people about who I should hire. Most agreed that Forward van lines is the company to go to. When I talked to the company, they seemed very professional and thorough. The men who came with their vans to my house were all very skilled. They took inventory of everything so efficiently and started to pack them and load them to their vans. Only experience could have given these men such skills. They managed to deliver all my valuables safely. That has to be a record! I’m delighted with these guys.

    I never thought a move could be this easy. Forward van lines proved to be highly effective moving my belongings cross country without any issues. Their quote was quite low given the market standard. The customer service was very friendly. The movers arrived right on time on the moving day. They were very well equipped and took very less time to finish packing everything. The loading process went smoothly. They delivered everything on the promised date and all my valuables traveled well. It was a clinical performance!

    I can bet that you will never find a more efficient and cost effective moving company within this country. Forward van lines helped me move the last time and they were absolutely amazing. The movers sent from the company were so friendly and polite. They packed up everything so easily and then loaded the van. The whole thing was done in a jiffy. The delivery was made right on time with all my valuables completely unharmed. I have never had a relocation that was so easy. These guys really shocked me because before this I always thought there is no good moving company!

    I had often dreamed of a moving company who’d charge me very low and then conduct a superlative move. I never actually thought this dream would come true! Forward van lines is well respected as a moving company so I was hoping they’d charge me a lot. But the amount they charged was absolutely fair if not cheap. Their movers were definitely a big find for the little money I paid. They were incredibly efficient and very fast. They finished packing and left before I could even properly finish my morning coffee. They delivered all my valuables in fantastic condition. I certainly understand now why this company is so well regarded.

    Forward van lines can put any other moving company to shame. This company maintains timing, employs excellent movers and has a customer service that is just awesome. It was such a pleasure seeing the movers at work when they were moving my belongings. Everything went like clockwork and they were done in a matter of hours. Even the delivery went without any drama. They did all that good work at a price that can be best explained as “cheap”. They are just unbelievable.

    Forward van lines impressed me very much. I got necessary information from the online profile. I got detail idea on moving package when I called their office. I had to go through a long distance moving procedure with you. You fixed the date and dispatched three guys on time on the move day. All of them were professional and active. Packed all things in an innovative way. My family member enjoyed their works very much. I highly recommend always.

    I hired Forward van lines quite hastily as I needed some movers very urgently. But, on contrary to my fears, the movers turned out to be delightful. The men were all very experienced and it showed in their work. They packed up all our belongings and didn’t take a lot of time in doing so. Not only were they fast, they were also very efficient. They took such great care of our furniture while loading them onto the van. Soon they were off to the road. They made the delivery right on time as well. All our things traveled quite well. I have no words for how amazingly this crew handled my move.

    Forward van lines is an amazing company! From start to finish, communications from their sales rep and the moving team were top notch. The move came in under budget for me, and was done in right at 2 hours. Despite one piece of furniture being left at my original residence, their lead guy and his crew were more than willing to help me out with retrieving it. Very professional and very kind team all around. Thank you so much!!!

    I had to relocate because of my job and needed a solid moving company. That’s exactly what Forward van lines provided and I’m really happy with their services. From the beginning, I’ve felt nothing but professionalism while working with them. I am really happy with everything offered by these guys, and wouldn’t change a thing. If we relocate again, I’ll know how to call right away!

    Moving doesn’t always have to be hectic. Forward van lines is a guarantee of that. This amazing company helped me move last month and they did a fantastic job. They arrived on time, quickly packed up all my belongings and left in their huge van. I literally didn’t even have to instruct them to do anything. They delivered all my things right on time in great condition to my new house. While so many people get palpitations over a move, I simply relied on the professionals and it paid off.

    The movers from Forward van lines work very hard to make moves happen. But they do so while making it look effortless. They work very fast and I mean very fast! They finished loading everything from our 3-bedroom apartment in no time at all. The delivery was made on time and the men unpacked everything. They put all the boxes in the right rooms and they asked whenever they were in confusion. It didn’t even cost me that much for the amazing services I received. It really was the perfect way to relocate.

    Great job by none other but Forward van lines. They moved me few weeks ago. It wasn’t easy for the movers but they relocated everything quickly and without ever feeling frustrated. I loved the fact that they had enough wrappers to wrap all my stuff and my furniture was delivered without any scratches. The careful, professional and courteous service of Forward van lines makes me recommend them to you.

    I have to relocate every few years all over the country. So I really am very familiar with the moving companies that operate poorly. My last move was handled by Forward van lines. I think I’m going to stick to this company from now on given how efficiently they made this move possible. The movers were fantastic and they worked very hard around my old house. The customer service always kept in touch with me throughout this move. They delivered all my belongings in great condition and on time.

    I choose Forward van lines because they were the most affordable option for my move. I was moving from an apartment to a row home. They completed the move in exactly three hours and nothing was damaged or broken. My movers were nice and professional. The booking process was very simple. The only complaint was they arrived about an hour after my booking time, but it wasn’t a problem at all because I needed the extra hour to finish packing. They did call me to tell me the arrival time.

    Forward van lines helped me move too many times already. They have performed outstandingly every time. The last move was 2 months back. They didn’t disappoint me this time either. The crew arrived on time, was very efficient at packing and finished the loading process within 3 hours. I am always at awe seeing how professional and skilled these movers are. This was the 4th time they moved my belongings and I have to commend them for breaking only nothing till now. I am very grateful to this company for always making my moves so easy. I know for a fact that I have to relocate many times in the future and I also know just which company to hire for the job.

    They did a great job. They didn’t drag their feet like most movers who want to try to make more money by going over the allotted time. They worked diligently and with great care. Nothing was damaged and they were respectful and kind with any request I had. And any last minute things I had to box up. They helped and waited so they could take it up for me. I loved the fact that they respected me as a military serviceman and gave a military discount.

    I am not a person who gets impressed easily. But FVL took me by surprise during my last move. I hired them because they were highly recommended. I didn’t know how good they really were. The movers were just machines. They immaculately packed all my belongings, didn’t run our materials and their skills were impressive to say the least. They delivered right on time and unpacked everything skillfully. In the end, the bill was exactly the amount they estimated. I had to give it to these guys for performing so well.

    I will come back again. Trust me. I will look for you, yet again and there is no second thought about that. Forward van lines staged such a tremendous performance when I was relocating. My expectation was less than what I received. It was far much above what I had anticipated. The services were those that I would best term as exclusive. You proved to be greater than I imagined. Thank you for that. I am now convinced more than ever before that this is the right relocation company for me. The first time they did it, it wasn’t this much spectacular. This time round, they made it exclusive and all perfect. I didn’t see that coming. Who would have guessed that they would wrap a whole day’s work in just a couple of hours? It was unbelievable, at least to me. I will not think twice about hiring them out in case there is need next time.

    Why would you hire Forward van lines? Because they employ the best crew members. The crew I had arrived on time and packed up everything from my 3-bedroom apartment very quickly. I have never seen movers this fast. I was very impressed to say the least. They brought their own equipment and didn’t run out tapes or bubble wraps. My things were delivered on the scheduled date and everything traveled very well. These guys are really cost effective and it’s exactly what you need because relocation can be very expensive.

    Customer service was very accommodating. I moved the dates a couple of times and they were very helpful. Always able to reach someone during operating hours. On the date of the move, the movers were courteous and friendly. They were early which was great because we were able to discuss a few things and start on time. I had a great experience for a reasonable price. My location was not exactly the easiest to move into and they made it work. I am completely satisfied.

    From start to finish, I was totally mesmerized by the way 4 movers from Forward van lines handled my move. They quoted so low to begin with. I would have been glad enough if they did an okay job given the price tag. But they elevated it to another level. I got a call from the company on the moving day asking if the movers could come early. I have never heard of movers who show up on time. Let alone be early! They finished the whole packing and loading process within a blink of eye. It was a sensational performance. They delivered on time, didn’t overcharge me and all my valuables were unharmed. God bless this company!

    They made me learn that relocation is more than just transporting properties from one point to another. Forward van lines fraternity made me realize that there is much more to Interstate movement than just carrying over things safely to their ideal destination. Relocation is nothing without professionalism and speed and their crew demonstrated that too well. I would really want to recommend for a job well done.

    I was dreading this move simply because of the stress of relocation. A friend of mine suggested that I hire Forward van lines to make things go smoothly. I never hired a moving company before and didn’t really know what to expect. But, their services were good enough for me to write this review. When I called them, they gave me a very reasonable quote. They sent over a crew on the moving day. The movers were all very young and strong. 2 of them were college kids and I was worried how professional they would be. But all four men were very skilled and experienced. They packed all my belongings with great care and precision. Efficiency was really their forte. I was glad to see how fast they were, which essentially saved me some money.

    I have seen how moving companies who used to be really efficient and inexpensive in the past have now turned into ripping machines. Luckily, companies like Forward van lines still exist who charge reasonably and provide good services. My move with them went very smoothly. None of my furniture suffered any kind of damages on the way and the company maintained their timing to the T. Given how efficient they are, I suppose a price hike is inevitable in near future. I’d still hire them though because finding such efficient movers is a rarity these days.

    As we were moving across America, we decided to take our old furniture with us. We hired Forward van lines to take care of the move. They were absolutely fantastic. They quoted very reasonably and the men they sent were so skilled. Even their vans were new so I already knew our valuables have a better chance of survival during the tour. Fortunately, all out belongings made it on time and in good condition. These guys are really the best in business.

    A lot of moving companies would give u a very lucrative quote and keep adding on top of it every chance they get! Forward van lines isn’t like them. They made a very reasonable quote at the beginning and they stuck to it till the end. Even though the movers worked for extra time making sure my things are packed properly, I still didn’t have to pay extra. They managed to do a really good job. All my valuables were safely transported by them. I think I got really lucky with them.

    I had an excellent experience with Forward van lines. I was completely satisfied with their service that they provided to me! This was my first time moving very long distance from Fort Lauderdale, FL all the way down to Portland, OR. I was very nervous and anxious. Although I was having these feelings FVL made things all better with the quality service that they provided me with. Overall I would recommend this company to anybody who is about to have their first big move. Also for anyone who is concerned about pricing, their pricing was very reasonable! In the future if I ever move again I will be glad to do it with this company. Thank you for your great service!

    I have no words to thank the moving team and the sales rep of Forward van lines. They have moved us from Orlando, FL all the way to Norfolk, VA. During the entire move, they have never did anything wrong. The team of 4 men showed up on time at the move day, did the wrapping flawlessly, boxed all my valuables nicely, packed everything with great care and loaded everything on the trucks without any mishaps. The moving crew delivered all my belongings within the scheduled time and unloaded effortlessly. They helped us unpacking and setting up the new house and till the end we couldn’t find one little mistake by these movers. They are simply brilliant.

    I understand how it may seem quite fishy when a reputed company quotes so low. But there is a reason for it. Companies need to do business in this competitive market and only the best companies can afford to charge low while giving great services. Forward van lines is one of the biggest moving companies and they really provide great moving services. I hired them several times and always felt like I won at the end. I am sure they make a profit but it’s nothing compared to the other overcharging so called fancy companies out there. I suggest you hire these guys and see what I mean. You won’t be disappointed and I can bet on it.

    Forward van lines has a very large fleet of vans and the men they employ are superbly trained. I know this because I have hired them before. I have hired them for my last move as well.

    I have relocated several times throughout my professional life and it’s always hectic. Luckily there are moving companies who take away some of your stresses. One of those companies who are at the top of their game is Forward van lines. I hired them last time when I was moving two months ago. It was a sudden move and I needed them to send their men on a 2-day notice. Their quote was very reasonable and the men they sent were exceptionally experienced. I didn’t have to do anything. They took care of pretty much everything from packing everything to cleaning up afterwards. When my valuables were delivered on time, I checked the inventory and everything was there in very good condition. I am very pleased with them and will hire them again for sure.

    The guys from Forward van lines reinstated my faith in the need for training. The man on the phone, when I called them, was very well informed and took no time in calling me back with a quote. The movers were very well trained. Their experience showed in the way they worked around my house. It took them just 2.5 hours to finish wrapping up my 3-bedroom house. They charged me for only 2 hours. I have rarely seen such efficient movers before. They made the delivery on the scheduled date and nothing was broken or damaged. I can certainly understand how their training has turned them into moving machines.

    My husband had to join at his new job urgently and so he left me with the responsibilities of packing and hiring a mover. I talked to my sister and hired Forward van lines for the job. They were very responsible. They arrived on time and showed very good skills at packing and loading. I have read terrible reviews about moving companies.

    We moved from a 2-bedroom apartment into a house, and the movers from Forward van lines were kind, efficient and trustworthy. First they came to do an estimate, and the total price we paid was a hair under said estimate – a relief! We sprung for the packing services and to have them provide all the boxes/supplies, which was a great decision. When the lead mover and his band of merry men arrived in the morning, they immediately set to work, treating each item with care, labeling each box and wrapping each of our furniture pieces and belongings to within an inch of its life. When driving to our new house, their truck broke down temporarily, and they didn’t charge us for a minute of the time it took to get back in action. In fact, they stayed on the job until well after dark, and when they determined there were a couple of items they still had in the truck the next day, the foreman contacted us and dropped them off at our doorstep. We would absolutely recommend these guys for moves – we had other movers that moved us into the apartment, who were not nearly as thoughtful, efficient and detail-oriented as these men.

    Our scheduled moving company wanted to move our pickup date to 5 days later than scheduled. We had to be out of our home in 2 days. Needless to say we were in a state of panic but Forward van lines saved us. I called them on a Thursday morning and they were there the following day to pick us up and move us. Their staff was great. They contacted us several times to reassure us that they would be there as promised. We are very grateful to this caring company. We do not know what we would have done without them. If you have an upcoming move to schedule, we would highly recommend calling these guys.

    Long distance moving can often be very crucial. Some friends suggested me to sell all my stuffs before moving. I would have had to buy everything locally then. Thankfully there is one moving company who specializes in long distance moving. Forward van lines has been in business for long enough to transport your valuables to pretty much any corner within the USA. I hear they even have special arrangement for people moving to whichever state. The men who work there seemed very enthusiastic and they knew their jobs very well. And I also must add that their quote was the lowest!

    I highly recommend Forward van lines. They offer a much needed service to the elderly, like me who have run into residential and business challenges. My company had to downsize our office so that’s why we inquired them. We had to close an office which was 5000 Sq ft. They provided emotional support in helping us to move the furniture out the two level office building. The price they quoted me was far less than I expected. Finally, the financial challenge hit home to me personally. Thus, I had to sell my luxury condo quickly and your team offered again emotional support to help me move even though the loss of my condo was draining me financially and emotionally. May God bless your business in sound fiscal growth.

    The sheer harmony and coherence displayed by the movers from Forward van lines during my move is absolutely commendable. I wasn’t expecting much from the company as I didn’t really know much about them. But they were just unbelievable. All four men were very strong and organized. Their foreman always kept the boys in line. The best part was that when one of them would struggle, others would come and help out. I have never seen 4 men working in so much sync. They packed and loaded all my belongings in an organized and systematic way taking minimum time possible. The delivery was made on time and the men assembled all my furniture for me. The company charges very reasonably and for the service you get, it’s totally worth it.

    Sometimes all it takes is a group of skilled movers to make your life easier. I hired Forward van lines to move my belongings and they provided me the much needed relief during a move. The movers impressed me the most. All three men were very experienced and skilled. They arrived early, packed all my stuffs very efficiently and were done with the whole thing in no time. I have rarely seen men being that swift before. We moved with such ease and it was only because of these 3 guys. They were smiling even when they were lifting my heavy 4-seater couch. I absolutely think everyone should hire this company.

    We hired Forward van lines last month to move our belongings along with our car and pets. These guys were just fantastic. They didn’t charge too high but their services very much on par with any fancy moving company. The movers were punctual, strong and efficient. They wasted no time sitting around to increase the amount of time they worked. They finished the job quite well. The delivery was made on time. I certainly understand now why this moving company is so reputed in this field.

    Forward van lines probably has the biggest network in the country. I hired them to move my belongings on such a short notice because my landlord literally gave me three days to move out. Even though they came on such short notice, they didn’t rush through packing. They were very thorough and packed everything carefully. I saw them loading our stuffs very systematically onto the vans. Both the vans arrived at my sister’s house together and all our belongings were unharmed. I am very grateful for the prompt response given by these guys in time of need. I can’t thank them enough and will be hiring them again in a few days when I find a new place for me!

    I’m so glad and lucky that I hired Forward van lines to conduct my move. Their quote seemed reasonable enough for the current market. The four movers who arrived on time were very capable for the job. They had years of experience and it showed in the way they worked. They wasted no time and worked very efficiently. They delivered all my belongings in great condition. I had to move on such a short notice but the way these movers handled my move I couldn’t help being thankful to them forever.

    Forward van lines handled our move two months ago and the move turned out to be straight out of textbook kind of easy. It was so good to see how brave and energetic these men were. A 2nd floor walkup was no big deal to them. They disassembled our beds and carried everything else to the van waiting outside. In just a few hours, they were off. They delivered everything just on time. All our belongings made it to our new move safely and we had to nothing during this move. I can’t even imagine this move going any smoother than this.

    I had done lots of research before my last move. I talked to many companies. But there was something about the man on the phone for Forward van lines that I decided to hire them. They were absolutely awesome! They packed with military precisions. They were out of my house before anyone even knew that I was moving out. I am so very grateful to them for delivering on time and saving the trouble of having to beg them to give me my things back. From A to Z, this company is possibly the best option one has to safely transport household goods such long ways. There are so many inefficient moving companies and I got the best one- couldn’t be more thankful for that!

    We moved to our in-laws house last week after my father in law was diagnosed with terminal cancer. The weather was less than desirable with the snow and slits. But it didn’t seem to make a difference to the very capable movers from Forward van lines. They went about their job as it is any regular day and packed up everything very quickly. The loading process was eventless and then they set off within a few hours of arrival. The delivery was made on time and it was snowing that day too. The movers unpacked and put everything in place. I tipped them very well simply because I was very grateful.

    We moved so easily during our last relocation and we only have Forward van lines to thank for it. This company is just too professional. Every little detail is foreseen by them. The movers were all very capable men who came prepared with all the right tools. They finished the job in such a short amount of time and displayed amazing skills. All my belongings were safely delivered after 2 days and I just couldn’t be any happier. From start to finish they maintained their schedules, were very polite and displayed amazing skills throughout. From their awesome manager to the amazing movers, I thank them all for conducting a stress-free move for me and my family.

    I moved last week and had the easiest possible move! I called Forward van lines for a booking which was easy and we hired them to help move our items and us to our new home. They came on time, very respectful, and did an awesome job. They wrapped up my items and assisted us to our new house in no time and I cannot say enough of how quick they were. Try them out you will not be disappointed, they are real professionals, very careful, quick and very good and I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a moving company.

    As a first time mover, I was drowning with all kinds of worries but Forward van lines made my last relocation plain and simple. First, they were the only one to respond to my online request for a quote. Next, the customer representative answered a lot of our questions, and the paperwork was completed efficiently. Then there were the four young men, who packed up our whole house in a blink of an eye. Lastly, the guys loaded and unloaded everything with such ease on a very hot day. No damage, no breakages were done and we were impressed with it all, and have no hesitation in recommending this company to anyone wanting professional, efficient and friendly service.

    I am not a fan of tolerating stress. I’ve had two moves in last four months. I cannot recommend Forward van lines highly enough. The movers showed up on time. They wrapped all of my furniture in plastic so it wouldn’t get scratched. It was comfortable having them in my home and touching my belongings. They provided me a greatest move. There was not a single dent on any of my pieces. I am forever grateful to them. They moved my stress away also.

    Before my last relocation I made a random call to Forward van lines customer service, after I found their contact number on their website. I spoke with their manager for quite some time, till I decided to go with them. The 3 men that were sent by them were out of the world great, they left no stones unturned to make the move stress free for us and helped us make what has to be one of the more stressful events in life a lot smooth and more pleasant. They are a nice bunch and very happy and friendly in their work, thank you for your wonderful team.

    We had a very smooth move with Forward van lines last week. They were very nice people to deal with. They unloaded the furniture with the same professionalism it was loaded with. I was also delighted in unpacking as there was nothing broken. I can’t thank you guys enough; it’s a stressful time moving household lots from one place to the other, but our move with these guys turned out to be stress free and went very smoothly.

    I hired forward van lines for our move because of their fab reputation- so many people praised them highly to me so there was no option but to hire them. We moved from an enormous house to a house about half the size. We had nearly 600 boxes, five bedrooms of furniture, and much, much more. The movers were professional to handle the situation. They handled some very expensive (and heavy) audio production equipment with care and were pleasant to work with. We will definitely use them again and would recommend others to hire this company for their moving needs as well.

    Relocation is always hectic and I can only imagine how hard it must be for people who do it every day. I have so much respect for the movers from Forward van lines. They really do the job well. I own a lot of stuffs and I almost felt bad for them when they had to pack everything and carry my heavy pieces of furniture. But they did everything with such ease. I received the delivery on schedule as well. I surely will miss my old place but it was good of the movers to make my move easier.

I would highly recommend them and obviously I am going to use them again.

    I was determined to find the right moving company. After looking through reviews online, we decided to hire Forward van lines. They gave us such a reasonable quote and the customer service was undeniably helpful. Four movers arrived at our apartment right on time on the moving day. They were properly equipped and took no time in packing up everything. I demanded extra care for my furniture and they did just that. All of our breakables were neatly packed into boxes. The whole thing took no time at all! They delivered everything on the same day to our new house. Then they unpacked everything and put them where I asked them to. It was such a smooth move.

    I have read many people complaining about how their valuables went missing during a move. Luckily, I faced nothing like that while Forward van lines handled my move. The movers they sent were so experienced and extremely reliable. They packed everything efficiently and it came to fruition when they delivered each item unharmed to my new house. They didn’t charge me a cent over the quote and in my book that is professionalism. I am gob smacked by how easy this move was. Or maybe I have very low standards!

    I think Forward van lines proved why they are so sorted after in this business during my last move. They were absolutely fabulous in everything. The movers arrived on time. All the packing and loading was done in the shortest possible time. The movers were very delicate while packing my breakables. They moved the furniture out in a very systematic manner. I was quite impressed seeing how sincere and organized they were. When they delivered everything, I took an inventory and all my belongings were safely delivered. There was no issue anywhere during this move and it’s a proof of their capabilities.

I don’t mind waiting for them in the future if that means my move would go this easy!

The loading process was completed really fast as well. They delivered everything on time and our valuables traveled very well. Our research did pay off since these guys performed excellently well. I will definitely hire them again.

The crew was excellent, hardworking and made it so easy. True professionals! I can honestly say this was the smoothest move I have ever had. They made sure all my valuables arrived at the new place with minimal damage done to them. I am so grateful to their foreman and his crew and the whole company and would recommend them to anyone and everyone!

    It’s not easy to pack everything and just move to another city. This was my first relocation. When I first saw my apartment here, I thought to myself, this is smaller than my bathroom back home. I felt sorry for the movers who had to fit my couch through that bullshit of an apartment building. Not only did Forward van lines fit my couch but they delivered each and every piece of my belonging to my new place with extreme care. I don’t know if this city would let me leave, but if it does, I know who I’m hiring for taking me back home where the smiles never fade away.

    We were moving last month and Forward van lines was the moving company we hired. Their performance was much better than average. My main concern during this move was my old pieces of furniture. But the very capable and experienced mover took great care of them. They carried everything very systematically. Their packing skills were great. I haven’t really seen movers who are so professional before. I chatted up with the foreman and he told me that this company only hires the best movers. That must be true given how efficient my crew was. They didn’t damage anything on the way and made the delivery on time. I’m very impressed with them clearly.

    Forward van lines is the best in business. I hired them for my move and they did an outstanding job. They quoted me a very fair price for today’s market and that is the primary reason why I hired them. They sent over 4 men to wrap up everything from my house. The men were all very capable and skilled. I could tell that they had years and years of moving experiences under their belts. All my belongings were safely packed and loaded onto the vans in only 3 hours. They delivered everything on the second delivery date which is alright. I really think these guys know their job very well and they are very apt at it.

    Having to move all the way to the other side of the country isn’t easy. It was also very tough to maintain office work and packing things at the same time. When I hired Forward van lines, they provided me their outstanding service. It became a good helping hand. They took the responsibility with utmost care and the transportation system for my goods was very useful. Within a short time it was a good handy service. Honestly, in their hands, I didn’t have to worry about anything and that is a reason good enough for hiring them.

    Forward van lines did such an amazing job moving our belongings. We hired them after a friend gave them a glowing recommendation. My husband is quite fussy about moving companies. He has trust issues clearly! But he felt much more confident after talking to the manager on phone. They seemed friendly and reliable. The real proof came during the move. The movers were all very experienced and they wasted absolutely no time. Their packing skills were amazing and they carried everything with ease. They were literally in and out of our house. We couldn’t believe how fast they finished the job. It must have saved us a fortune. The delivery was made sharp at 9:00 am on the scheduled date. All our valuables traveled excellently and we couldn’t be happier.

    CONSUMERS BEWARE This company FORWARD VAN LINES is the worse company ever if I can give a negative 5 stars I would but it doesn’t allow me so I can only give a 1 star. STAY AWAY, Guy the owner or whatever he is LIES, and hides behind his desk, he says he will help you but then he is never there when you call him. FORWARD VAN LINES RIPPED ME OFF , had me sign bunch of paperwork with no price, and when I asked why isn’t there any price on the forms they told me it will be filled out later with the estimate price. Once all my stuff was on the truck my price went from $2159 to $6500 for the same items, they added a bunch of nonsense fee’s that weren’t even on their contract, when I spoke with Guy he told me he will give me a discount, when I asked them to unload the truck they wanted to charge me $3000 to unload and put everything back in the house, I had no chose but to move with them, even though guy said he will help me with the move and provide me a discount, HE LIED HE NEVER DID, I had to pay out $6000.00. CONSUMERS BEWARE, THIS COMPANIES LIES AND TRICKS THEIR CUSTOMERS. I AM LAUNCHING A CAMPAIGN SO THIS DOESN’T”T HAPPEN TO ANY OTHER CUSTOMERS.. Unfortunately if I post a review on Yelp this review will be removed because they pay for their reviews on yelp

    This mid-year we needed to move from our home in Miami to rejoin with the family in New York. We utilized Forward Van Line and their administration was not the same as what i was advised to anticipate from movers… the aggregate cost matched the evaluation, all our trappings arrived securely to the terminus so I never needed to pursue anyone to get replies. At the point when our stuff touched base to New York, Will, the occupation director on location, preformed astounding and expert administration, the fellows were quick and treated our stuff as their claims. We moved as I was expecting another child, and I was overpowered from the move as may be, so not managing inconvenience from the movers was an enormous in addition to. I would completely utilize them again if at any point required, and propose to take in client administration from them!

    Forward Van Lines was scheduled to move me on a one day move. They were to arrive by 8:00 am on June 30th. They were expected to load everything by noon and head to the west coast of Florida and arrive by 5:00 PM. Unfortunately, the truck showed up 3 hours late at almost 11:00 AM. This was the beginning of the worst move of my life. The workers told me they were having issues locating a semi truck and I think it’s because the company doesn’t actually own any semi trucks. When they showed up, it appeared to be rented because it had no Moving Compnay name or markings. The delay made my job run two days requiring me to stay overnight in a hotel. After only being on the job for about two hours, all men were taking an hour break. I paid for 5 men and a semi and on day one, 7 men showed up because three of the seven guys didn’t work. I was really down one man so that made day one take even longer.

    The Semi Driver remained in his air-conditioned cab most of the time and the other two worthless workers were his sons. They did virtually nothing but break my belongings and walk around looking confused. One of the boys told me he had just had a wrist operation and wasn’t supposed to lift anything but he needed a paycheck. His younger brother would stand around and do nothing. After catching all the men take excessive breaks and watching them drag/boxes down a set a stairs and literally hearing things break, I called their boss whose name was Roei. He was very nice and attentive and stopped much of the shenanigans with one phone call but that coulnn’t erase what had already transpired.

    On day two when they came to deliver my contents, they arrived over 1 1/2 hours late and with only with 5 men this time (three of which were the same ones from the previous day that didn’t work). Their excuse for being late was that the truck had a governor and could only go 60 mph. Only two men worked the entire day. Those two were Brian & Andrew and they worked their butts off and did a good job. I asked Brian why they didn’t complain to the boss that the others weren’t working and they seemed afraid to make waves. Again, because the other three didn’t work, the delivery took longer than what was quoted because the three men I paid for did nothing; in essence, I only had 2 men doing the job of 5. When they finished they told me my balance was zero and left and when I called the next day to complain to Roei about the whole experience, he tried to say I still owed $900.

    Furthermore, after unpacking, I found dozens of broken items, two broken/non working very expensive TV’s and one very expensive watch mysteriously disappeared from one of my boxes. Within a couple of days I received a call from Ruth at Forward saying she was in quality control and wanted to know if I was pleased with my move. After filling her in with all that happened, she became horrified and said they would do something about it and apologized profusely. She called me the next day and said they would process a claim only if I paid the $900 balance which sounds a lot like extortion to me. This company was the absolute worst that I have ever used and all those great reviews that you see on-line must be manufactured by the Forward Van Lines. There is no way you can screw up a move any worse than mine and it just be a coincidence or one time event. They are not as good as the reviews indicate and I wouldn’t recommend them to anybody. They sound great on the phone and willing to please from Nerva to Roei & Guy but the truth is, my move didn’t go well and they tried to screw me in the end by trying to collect more money and then wouldn’t honor any claims for the breakage, non working TV’s or stolen watch. I have reported them to the police as well
