Worse moving experience of my life by

DO NOT USE!
AVL has been a nightmare from the start. They pay for reviews, and I have evidence of them paying to remove bad reviews. TRUST ME! I will take the time to explain my entire story and provide evidence of their scam to anyone who wants to use them.

First they showed great customer service (calling many times, answering the phone and emails) and offer a binding quote WITHOUT a visual appraisal. We asked, they said it was not needed and we went through our entire home and boxes. They assured us that going through the rooms, and describing the furniture will be accurate. They then asked for 50% deposit which was $2500. During our initial discussions, we indicated that we ABSOLUTELY COULD accommodate an 18 wheeler; however, they still added in a shuttle charged of over 1k. It was a hidden fee and never explained to us.

They called (one day before) to confirm the day and time (prior to they had a 3 day window) and arrived on moving day with a smaller truck than agreed upon based on the estimate. We have a 2800 sq. 4 bedroom house, and they brought a very small truck. Not only was the truck a Ryder rented truck, it was half full with someone else's belongings. To make matters worse, it wasn't AVL, it was 2 men from a different company called Quality Relocation. They subcontracted us out to a company that has terrible reviews. We never would have agreed to hire this company!! AVL confirms on their website they do not subcontract. WHY WOULD WE PAY A DEPOSIT TO A COMPANY THAT DID NOT DO THE MOVE? WHY WOULD WE OWE THEM MONEY?

When we asked for another truck, American van lines said they could not help, we needed to go through this random third party; meanwhile they still have our deposit. The individual from the third party indicated we could not get another truck for another 4 days. We had to rent a storage space In Boston for the remaining items left at the house that did not fit on the small / half filled truck they arrived in. We asked AVL for a hold on our items (for one week) being delivered and although they said they could accommodate they did not (probably because they subcontracted us out a completely different company.) We got a call saying our items would be delivered to South Carolina within 48 hours and it would cost an additional $4300 for the delivery. They insisted we pay the day before it arrived. This was never agreed upon. So now we had to hire another storage facility until we were able to arrive. We had to scramble to find one on a weekend since they were delivering on a Sunday. How could we be in two places at once? They were delivering our first truck in SC on Sunday morning, and picking up our second truck of items in Boston as the same time and on the same day (Sunday morning.) The $4300 price for the first truck did NOT include the second truck. We tried to contact American Van Lines multiple times by email and phone with no answer or response. We have evidence and proof that they did not answer our calls or email in which we literally asked "are we being scammed?" At this point we have paid AVL $2500 of the binding contract estimate, as well as $4300 to the third party who threatened to charge us 1k a DAY if we did not pay immediately. We have two small kids and I'm pregnant and we had no choice.

When we finally got our belongings out of storage, we saw that they lost our bedframe, several other items and damaged our furniture. They handed over the weight ticket over a week after repeated requests and the ticket is from 2 very different locations - and was the weight of the ENTIRE truck (with other people's belongings.) It had no truck number, or lading number. They stated that our items weighed 7600lbs ON ONE TRUCK but we fit everything onto a small UHAUL truck we had to rent to take our stuff from the storage facility in SC to our new home. They insisted we had far more boxes and items than agreed upon but this was clearly part of the scam. They tagged random pillows, a shoebox.

Quality Relocations picks up the second half of our stuff on Sept 27th (4 days after the original pick up date) again in an unmarked RYDER truck and we did not get our belongings until October 19th. We called AVL several times and they kept telling us to call back, there was a problem with the truck and the delivery, and they cannot locate the truck. Finally, we spoke to someone who said the items were "in Maryland." We offered to go get them ourselves (again we have 2 small children and had none of our stuff.) They refused to help us, compensate us or give us answers. They kept saying it was our fault for having more stuff than we said we had, and that it was a "ripple" affect. When the second truck arrived, almost 3 weeks later, Quality Relocation demanded $3500 MORE. So now, a quote of $4800 has turned into $10,200.

DO NOT USE!!!!!!!!!!!!

$8000 worth of damageby

Don’t believe the biased high ratings for American Van Lines (AVL) seen online. AVL buys people’s silence if not 100% satisfied. To accept their “settlement offer”, you sign a contract saying you won’t say anything negative about the company. AVL caused over $8000 worth of damage to our belongings (not counting damage done to either house) for which they offered a settlement of $1483. The movers’ attitude was great. Whenever I tried to help box items or carry items to the truck, AVL repeatedly informed me that I paid them to do the work and I shouldn’t be doing anything. But one worker clogged our toilet. Rather than saying anything about it, he closed the door. I found the mess 2 DAYS later. I had to purchase another plunger to unclog the toilet. Also, items were not packed carefully (e.g., 1 sheet of paper between 2 glass pie pans). I was expecting an 18-wheeler to carry our belongings like we had before. AVL showed up with a small truck, realized not everything was going to fit, and rented a trailer to pull behind the truck. AVL strapped my grill, wagon, & plow to the outside of the trailer (they wouldn’t fit inside). I rented a trailer to carry what AVL couldn’t fit. Our belongings were emptied into AVL’s storage unit, then reloaded when we were ready for delivery. The day we closed on the house, AVL called to make arrangements; dispatch gave me a delivery window of 2:00-4:00pm. I told them that we wouldn’t be closing until after 1:00. AVL arrived at the house at 11:00am. The driver chewed me out because I wasn’t there to take delivery and if I wasn’t there by 2:00, he was going to charge me a waiting fee. I arrived at 1:45. AVL wasn’t there, and didn’t return until after 4:00. I told my wife what happened. She posted a bad review on Google. Within 2 hours, Theresa (caseworker) called me and said if we removed the post, AVL would give me $200. The post was removed, but I never saw the $200. She told us we had 90 days to file damage and loss claims. Just a few weeks ago (way too late to add to the claim), I discovered that my 2 sets of handcuffs & keys were stolen. I repeatedly told them to take extra care of some items due to their sentimental or intrinsic value. Several were damaged. Not expecting that much damage, I foolishly signed Option 2 of the contract, which waves full replacement cost. It allows for replacement cost of $0.60/pound of that item. AVL’s settlement offer for some items was $508. Because the damage to the house was not noted in the log when the movers were here, AVL only allowed $725 as a “courtesy allowance” because I had pictures. There was a long list of other items that AVL did not offer fair settlement because their damage or loss was not listed on the bill of laden. As the homeowner, apparently it’s my responsibility to assess loss or damage to EVERYTHING as it’s unloaded. I guess I was supposed to go through every box while the truck was being unloaded to check for damage, but had 90 days to submit the paperwork? There was a 5-man team unloading items and entering the house through 2 entrances, some boxes and items were left in the garage. I could not keep track of everything. AVL used a $200 rain barrel as a packing vessel. It was filled with tools, then a chain was taken out of a tool box and thrown on top of the tools. The weight and sharp angles wore a hole in bottom, which wasn’t discover until I emptied it. A wood cabinet was destroyed. AVL put it in the garage and buried it with boxes so that I couldn’t see it. Out of “good faith and customer service”, AVL offered a settlement of $250 for the items damaged or lost that were not listed on the bill of laden because of the photos. As per their agreement, AVL had 120 days to respond to that claim. After 121 days I called them. For me to accept their pitiful offer of $1483, I must promise that I “will not, directly or indirectly, make any negative or disparaging statements”. I would rather be out the $1483 and inform others of our experience.

BEWARE! Worst moving company we ever experience!by

These guys were the worst movers we've ever experience. You name it, unprofessional, total disregard for your furniture and belongings, and whenever something was broken or damaged just expect the "oh my bad" fix. The owner, Anthony Disorbo, can be proud of his gang of hudlums who trash your stuff with total disregard. He should try being an undercover boss to see what really goes on.

First of all they are very lazy filling out the inventory sheet and when we refused to sign it because they didn't fill in any detail you get inner city lip and you get to know the real gang banger mentality handling your furniture. Then when you file a claim they give you the BS that your inventory isn't descriptive enough to verify the items of furniture, AVL personnel wrapped and shipped, were moved by them so you can't prove it. Just know that the contract you are signing only protects them as a company NOT YOU.

Also, by some odd coincidence, my credit card number was stolen and used three blocks from their home office in pompano beach a few days later. The same credit card I used to pay AVL. These guys are trouble so beware if you go stupid enough to use them.

Satisfiedby

It was moving day and the two gentlemen were ready to work, quickly dismantled all the furniture, wrapped it up and loaded it with ease. The guys were friendly and professional, had everything in the truck in no time. Then it was off to Delray Florida, about twenty minutes down the road, again the guys in no time had it unloaded and put the furniture back together and placed it in its proper place. I was satisfied and will be using them again in the near future, Mike from Delray Beach Florida

Easy Cross Country Moveby

The easiest move ever - great professionalism from the first inquiry phone call to the last box was unloaded. The pack up team arrived on time and ready to work - great care was taken to wrap all of our furniture and inventory our boxes. We opted to store our items in the American Van Lines warehouse in Pompano for a few months, so our move was effectively two moves. The delivery team also arrived on schedule and quickly unloaded our belongings - placing furniture where we wanted it and assembling beds all the time being mindful of our walls and doorways. They were professional, efficient, and friendly. All of our items arrived in perfect condition - no scuffs on furniture and not a single broken household item. I was dreading this move and the thought of broken or damaged items - my fears were all unjustified, American Van Lines handled all of our items with care. If I move again, American Van Lines would be my first call - they exceeded my expectations (especially in a field with very mixed standards) and at what I would consider to be a fair price.

Moving Made Easierby

I had a major change in my life but my moving was made easier thanks to American Van Lines. Tom was the first salesperson I spoke with. He was extremely helpful by suggesting what I needed to do to prepare for the move His helpfulness was the deciding factor for going with this company. Afterwards Jennifer took over. She was very helpful and answered any questions and concerns I had. The driver (don't have name) called me ahead of time to inform of their arrival time. Both the driver and his crew were professional and took great care of my belongings. My furniture was very delivered ahead of schedule. The driver called a day or two ahead to inform me. The delivery went smooth. I am extremely satisfied and would gladly use and recommend American Van Lines in the future.

Fairly priced and excellent 5-star service!by

When I began searching for my moving company, I googled "Best long distance moving company in Broward County". A top 10 list came up and I selected 3 from that list to call. I found American Van Lines to be the best value for the services I needed. The team was professional. The sales rep actually came to the house for an estimate he insisted would be binding - it was. The movers were patient; calm with me as the week's activities and house closing made me a little edgy; they were so very kind and polite. They did EVERYTHING I asked for at both the old and new homes. They worked so hard, and were so strong and skilled. I marveled at their efficient processes - how they handed furniture off to one another, and maneuvered corners and stairs. The team was excellent and I am very grateful. I absolutely recommend American Van Lines.

Nothing but good things to sayby

I researched several moving companies and American VAn Lines gave me the best price and did not offer to refer me to another company because of haul size. The movers came when scheduled and arrived at my new address ahead of schedule. It was a truly hassle-free move and I would use this company again.
