Nationwide Moving and Storage, CT

Postby Soup Lady » Tue Aug 08, 2006 8:34 pm

Anyone have any experience with Nationwide Moving and Storage out of Bloomfield, CT? They are part of North American Van Lines (Ft Wayne, IN, MC-107012).

I received a decent quote from them moving 2000# from CT to FL (not a low quote, but lower than my 2 highest quotes).

Would appreciate any feedback, good or bad.

I have not heard of them, personally but they're probably ok. Can you tell us who you got other quotes from and for how much?

I've had a wide range of estimates, all but one from companies who did not come out and look at the storage unit but quoted on what I told them (size of storage unit, amount of furniture/boxes in unit).

All American Van Lines gave me binding estimate of $1,066.50 based on 1,659 lbs/237 cubic ft.

Available Movers & Storage - $1485.20. Didn't say what type of estimate it was. Based on 1806 lbs, 258 cubic ft.

Amodio Van and Storage - Non-Binding estimate of $1637.25 based on 2100 lbs (minimum)

Fixed Price Moving Systems - $1400 based on 350 cubic ft.

I had other quotes that I tossed, as I saw they were on the black list mentioned on this site.

Only one company sent a rep out to look over the storage unit, and he said it appears we would be under 2000 lbs, but his company also quoted on 2100# minimum. His quote was $1900.

I actually fought with a rep from Moving Van Lines over the phone today because he quoted me for cubic feet, and I questioned him about the legality of doing it this way. He said he would e-mail me a quote, but I still haven't gotten it. It would go in the trash anyway.

I'm going to go with Nationwide Moving and Storage. I had a long talk with the sales rep and feel comfortable with their non-binding quote of $1499, plus $.69/lb over 110% of estimate. I'm also comfortable because they are a part of the NAVL system.
Tell me if I'm wrong to do this!

I think they're OK. The BBB site says they have been in business since 1939 and they have only 1 complaint over the past 36 months - http://www.connecticut.bbb.org/commonre ... l?bid=1523

Please come back to report as we're always looking for good movers to move people to FL.

The All American Van Lines you were dealing with - was that the Stevens agent on Long Island or some other All American?

The All American Van Lines quoted me via e-mail, and there was no address, only a phone number, 800-908-6007. Contacts listed were Justin or Dave.

I'll let everyone know how the move goes in late September. I really appreciated all the help from this website!
