Priority Van Lines Anyone Got Any Feedback

Postby pedro66 » Wed Apr 02, 2008 3:30 am

Got a quote for a move from Priority Van Lines and its reasonable but found this site so thought I would see if anyone had used them

We are moving from Henderson NV to Palm Coast FL so any other companies you can suggest most welcome.

Thanks

Are they an agent for any reputable, known, national van lines system? If not, they are not properly prepared to move you that distance. What Van lines do they rep? ( and Priority van lines is not a van lines, it's just a name)

Here are some sample van lines, maybe they are a member of any of the following......Allied Van Lines, United Van Lines, North American Van Lines, Mayflower Transit, Atlas Van Lines, BEkins Van lines, National Van lines, Arpin Van lines, Wheaton Van Lines, Graebal Van Lines....there's a few more, but this covers 90% of the van lines that are qualified and capable of moving you that great distance.

If their DOT is 1732919 and their motor carrier number is MC 634861, then you’ll find their carrier information listed under AS Transport Enterprises Inc, a one truck carrier that received their household goods authority on March 11, 2007 http://tinyurl.com/3c2c5t .

Make sure that you have an in-home survey completed. You can find a list of local agents here. http://www.movingscam.com/forum/viewtop ... 7658#57658

Actually, Rick, that authority was granted on March 11, 2008, as in just a couple weeks ago. But Pedro, this company from California is offering to move you from NV to FL, but they have only one truck and driver. They are literally putting all their eggs in your basket. They'd be with your move for several days, making only the money from your move during that time. From a business standpoint, that's not a sound decision. Often such customers find their move gets subcontracted to another mover "heading that way" once the hired company picks up your belongings. It's much more profitable to stay local with their only truck and make money there.

Also, their address is a Postal Mailbox, strangely right near the "Petite Princess of Porn". Moving companies should have an established address, preferrably with a storage area on the premises.

Pedro, you'd be best finding a mover in your home area that can come to your house to see everything to be moved. As well as you know your stuff, phone inventories usually aren't as accurate and can cause problems later.
