Re: ALERT - avoid Able Apollo Moving & Storage in NJ (NAVL)

Apollo - North American Van Lines (Somerset, NJ) has closed their doors. Also, Morgan Moving and Storage out of Pottstown, PA has been acquired by L&J Moving and Storage out of Temple, PA. L&J will occupy the Pottstown location and now is the only North American Van Lines agency serving the ...

Does anyone know of any good agents in Maine.

Re: Moving from Chicago to Oakland, CA

What will you be doing in Oakland? lol. I left Oakland in 2006 after living there for 40 yrs. As for your movers I can say that I see Beltmann in California all the time. They have nice, clean equipment. I hear people say that they are well respected in the Allied family. In this part of the countr...

Re: Moving from Houston to MD (DC area)

One more option to consider:

Ward Moving and Storage (NAVL) has locations in both states. They are located in Houston and in Dulles.

Re: Moving company in Western MA? Not Boston area

The superlist is a bit outdated for moving companies servicing western Massachusetts. I would contact either Roger Sitterly based in Amherst (now affiliated with Atlas Van Lines) or Arnoff Moving and Storage (an agent for North American Van Lines). Mullen Moving and Storage looks like they are no lo...

Re: Advice for move from Austin to Orange County, CA?

Thanks, Bill. Could you tell me something, though? In this thread quoted in the Superlist, people seem to be saying that there is a ROGER Ward NAVL agent in Austin - m Are there two Wards there, then? Seems strange. Diane, Yes it is confusing, but they are two separate companies. Ward Moving and St...

Re: Advice for move from Austin to Orange County, CA?

Hi - the Broadway Express driver is likely to be more knowledgeable about moving than just plain "loaders" that you would hire from MovingHelp.com, and he would stay with your goods during the entire move whereas an ABF trailer would likely have several different drivers associated with it. However...

Re: **Ward North America Houston - Delivered Boxes that Weren't Mine

Just a quick comment, it doesnt matter if it was United, Mayflower, Graebel, North American or Atlas. Your comment to stay away from Ward NA was uncalled for (I understand why you said it) but it should have no influence on someone who is looking for a mover, if Ward was one of them. Ward provided ...

Re: **Is it OK for Allied driver to use hourly workers to move and load

I found this link interesting, since I had a conversation with a veteran driver for A-1 Freeman out Oklahoma City, OK (NAVL) this past April and he said that NAVL now requires background checks on the 'help' before the driver could use them, in order to eliminate potential liabilities from inexperie...

You can try - DAS (Dependable Auto Shippers) or Waggoneers - I think they are based out of Dallas, TX.

Re: **Philadelphia, PA to Los Angeles, CA

Diane, The Hawkeye agent you saw on-line, is not the same one - the original site was in North Liberty just south of Cedar Rapids (they went bankrupt) where as the current Hawkeye opened operations in the past 2 months under a former employee - I think he was the president of the original Hawkeye, b...

Re: **Philadelphia, PA to Los Angeles, CA

Diane, L&J is a relative newcomer to the NAVL brand, yet they do not have NAVL branded trucks from what I have seen - the freight comparison seems appropriate. NAVL lost their biggest presence in the Philadelphia market when Wayne left for Atlas in March of 2009. Some of the smaller agents are s...

Re: **Philadelphia, PA to Los Angeles, CA

As you can see, reimbursement was not only better with Hughes but I saved a ton of money as well. Yes, I see your point. It's strange that Morgan gave you a quote so much higher than the other NAVL agent. Sometimes companies do this when they don't really want the shipment for some reason. For exam...
