Great Movers.
5.0

Truly above and beyond what I expected in the best way! 10/10 would recommend! Not only did they have satisfactory, even great, reviews from other customers- they were also the MOST reasonably priced! I cannot recommend this company enough, this was the easiest move of my life! On time, courteous, careful and quick…not to mention they even took apart and then set up our bed frame and headboard!

From now on I will move only with First National Van Lines because of the great prices and the trustworthy service. These guys finished the work within 2 days and moved all of my personal belongings from WA to Seattle CA. They are the best company that I ever hired.

Smooth and quick
5.0

They were flexible, understanding and extremely willing to make an unplanned stop along the way to pick up a couch, and then helped us figure out what to do with it when it didn’t fit through our door. Really nice that they hustled as we all know movers are expensive. They were more prepared, professional and efficient than any of the movers we have ever used. We will be customers as long as we are in this area.

I have moved many times in my life and have never used a moving company. I always thought they were to expensive and not worth the money. We just moved and a co-worker recommended this company. They are professional, well priced, and hard workers. I will never move again without using First National Van Lines.

We hired them based on their awesome reviews and when they showed up in their large semi-truck, they impressed me. Their customer service and competitive pricing not only saved our lives at a very stressful point in time but the follow-up and customer service was beyond expectations. Will recommend them highly.

5.0

As I was searching for potential moving companies I already began to feel that dread of my upcoming move settle in. Between packing and finding my new apartment I was really not looking forward to having to move my things into a truck, that wasn’t even my own, and be liable for my furniture and belongings while the move happened. I have never been so impressed with a company before. From their professionalism, to the affordability, and the guarantee that my belongings would be taken care of. I am so happy that I took the time and found an amazing moving company. I am referring them to all of my friends!

What a wonderful experience!
5.0

I quickly filled in the inventory form and waited patiently. I had been told that it was the only thing I needed to get in touch with First National Van Lines and assured that I was going to get a reply in a few minutes. Truly enough, I got a feedback some minutes later and with it came detailed answers to the questions I had. Additionally, there were quotes also attached. I saw them favorable enough and went ahead with the hiring out. They were there on the agreed date and did all that I had expected of them and even more. What a wonderful experience!

I was quite worried having to move quite a long distance. But thankfully I hired First National Van Lines and they are the best in this field. Their customer service was very helpful. They quoted very reasonably and stuck to it till the end. The movers were so fast at the packing and loading the process- great coordination among them making it a smoother and organized move. I don’t think my words are enough to describe what a great job these guys did. You need to hire them to understand their efficiency. They were just everything you expect movers to be!

We had moved to our new house last month. We hired them for our relocating purpose. When I hired them, I changed my decision to move into my new house a little bit late like one week later. I thought they would mind to hear about my decision but they gave me the impression that my ease was their ease, unbelievable. I was just glad that they were very flexible with customer’s willingness. Their service was just beyond my expectations.

These guys were great! They followed up a few times to ensure things were covered and confirm timing of the move. The day of the move, the team of movers were early and very fast. They took really good care of everything they were moving of mine by ensuring any furniture was wrapped and the truck was loaded properly. will definitely be using these guys again.

They were extremely organized and professional from the moment I called, and I really appreciated that the office kept me updated on the time I could expect them to arrive. The guys were friendly, organized, and efficient. All of our things arrived in perfect condition. I couldn’t recommend them more highly!

We had a full day’s worth of moving to be done – and it was all done in the rain. The guys never complained, had a great attitude, were polite and did a wonderful job getting us moved into our newly built house. We had several heavy pieces and they didn’t miss a beat. They were very helpful and answered my questions very quickly. Would definitely use them again and recommend them as well. I only wish I had remembered to take a few pictures of everyone!

I used First National Van Lines earlier this week. I moved a ton of boxes myself and left the heavy stuff to the pros. The two fellows arrived 5 minutes early and went right to work. They were polite and professional in every way. The truck was ready to go in about 90 minutes and arrived on time in Las Vegas. They unloaded promptly and placed everything where we wanted it. They even moved a few things around as we decided. The price was as quoted. I’ve moved many times and this was the smoothest since I’ve lived in NV. The estimate process was as others have described. I highly recommend First National Van Lines.

I had the easiest move ever with the help of First National Van Lines. They moved me from a 1 bedroom condo to a 4 bedroom house. A special thanks goes to the whole moving crew. They were excellent. They did so many little move related tasks that I didn’t even think of (taking bulbs out of lamps, putting the patio screen door on track at my new house, helping me get a super sticky mouse glue trap of my shoe, etc.). It was a lot of hard work moving from a 2nd floor apartment, but they finished the job within the estimated time frame and with a positive attitude the whole time. It was an easy, smooth move. I highly recommend First National Van Lines.

These guys really do deserve 5 stars, I had a pretty small move to a place a couple miles away. They responded to my inquiry promptly, their estimate was accurate, they showed up 10 minutes early, but didn’t start the clock until the truck was in the loading dock and the movers came into the building. They were friendly, worked quickly and were done in less than 3 hours.

Moving is never an easy task and when you’re moving solo, often times your mind is all over the place. These guys made the move the easiest part of the process. They work extremely well together and constantly had me laughing. If you’re blessed to have this crew…you won’t be disappointed. Hopefully this is my last move for a while but if I do move again, I want these guys. Thanks again for everything!!

Very bad experience with First National Van lines
1.0

When I contacted FNVL I asked for a visit for volume estimation and they said they have a reliable system for such calculation: the 1st calculation was done and after listing all home goods they brought with an calculated volume that now I understand was very sub-estimated in order engage customer with a lower price. First estimation was 1550 cu-Ft with a cost of around 8000$. I signed a contract with a rate of 6.24$/cu-ft and made a down payment of 3500$ with order number 3028288. One week before day of moving the FNVL Quality manager called me to check again all stuff to make sure that truck capacity is the right; and of course recalculating the cost: at first one can thing that difference is around 5-10% but in my case it was 25%, but the cost was increased by 50%, now the cost of moving was 12000$ and I made another down payment of 750$. One says: ok I think I could make a mistake listing stuff initially but now number should very precise. They said 2-3 days before moving dispatch will contact to you to reconfirm date, time vehicle capacity: “it never happened”, no one called to me neither by email. I tried to contact quality manager (never reply immediately any call), I texted him and also sent him an email: no answer at that moment. Later (during the night before moving) quality manager contacted to me via text msg saying that he would fix that thing to make it possible moving in the morning of next day: I felt like he was doing a favor to me. Day of moving came, a truck of 4000cu-ft of a company called Condor moving service showed up; it was not “First National Van line “ which means that FNVL was doing intermediation for the service, it was a company called “Condor Moving Services”. That company proceed to pack and load stuff; and surprise : there was not 2000cu-ft but 2950cu-ft: a difference of 1.9 times from original and about 1.5 times of 2nd calculation. My budget for moving was around 12,000$ and now I had to pay 19,000$ and no flexibility with any volume in truck as said by the seller at the moment of contracting . Once again I tried to contact quality manager, with no answer and I texted him about the situation (no reply again). Suddenly supervisor told me he won’t charge such percentage as a favor for me and he asked for tips to the guys that packed stuff (at the end of the day I paid same % as tip). The goods were moved as planned; but since truck had such size (4000 cu-ft), it was impossible to get to new location therefore a shuttle service was needed. The driver called to me to tell me that such extra service would cost other 2500$ for it (as it was stated in original contract with FNVL). Driver also told me that I could do by myself but he would deliver my stuff without blankets and protection at the place of delivery and I would take the accountability of moving without proper protection and also reassembly stuff at home: I tried to call quality manager and also texted: Never replied. I had in mind contracting a U-haul truck with professional movers that would cost around 1200-1300$; however T&C ‘s commented by driver in regards of furniture protection made me take his last option On the day of delivery I saw exactly I had in mind: driver came with the 1600 cu-ft capacity U-haul truck and 3 helpers that Never had worked with moving goods (3 handyman). At the end I had to pay 21,814$ for this service which was quite a lot different of initial price and my budget. Later, I upload a review to different web pages and a FNVL contacted to me to start an arbitration process, then a 3rd parties company “Powellaribtrationgroup” contacted to me to revew the case and work on my behalf. After 7 weeks of wasted time there was no added value, this guy said what I already knew “you have a signed contract and real volume is correct”, so Powell artibration group supposly negotitated a rebate but at the end it was a ridicolous amount which I rejected. Final comments 1-It is understood that the rate of 6.24$ is used to cover small differences (5-10%) of original quotation, but 90% difference is a big mistake and I feel that I overpaid for such service 2-FNVL original Volume estimation is much less than real one, it is done ir Order to sell their service 3-Volume system used by FNVL was not reliable at all since there was a big difference on final volume in regards of origin and 2nd calculation 4-FNVL uses 3rd parties company for the service, they are intermediates and get the money for selling the service 5-FNVL is the worst on communication with customer 6-Quality manager provided poor support when needed 7-The supposed arbitration was a wasted time, I personally felt this guy was like another FNVL employee. This is my first and last time I use FNVL for transportation of home stuff and I don’t recommend this company for transportation of goods due the way how they sell their service.

HORRIBLE
1.0

The communication of this company is HORRIBLE. The initial phone call was extremely helpful and professional, but then on moving day (from florida to california) they sent one person to move a home, when they said there would be at least 2 (I guess one guy got sick so 1 man did it all alone, thank you Jesse for your hard work)… they said it should take 2 hours and it took almost 5 hours! Customer service said that we would be getting a discount upon delivery, which we did and we were happy… then days later they call us and tell us the driver made a mistake and didnt collect the right amount so the driver would have to pay the difference if we didnt pay it… uhm what? then trying to talk to customer service, he told me he didnt understand why we were asking for a discount, I never asked for a discount I called my point of contact and HE text me that he would be getting me a discount! but I guess I lied about that too when I can send them the texts! they also said we lied about only having 1 man there at the moving day, even though it was already confirmed because they called Jesse and asked him they called us liars and were condescending to us… I would never refer anyone to this place, the communication and customer service is horrible… spend a few more dollars and go somewhere else!

Horrible!
1.0

Con-Artist! Will steal your money. DO NOT SIGN THAT CONTRACT! DO NOT BELIEVE THESE GOOD COMMENTS, THEY ARE PROBABLY FROM FRIENDS, FAMILY MEMBERS, AND EMPLOYEES! They work as a brokerage and will tell you everything you want to hear on the phone, and then on moving day; that low price “They so called worked up just for you” will go up exponentially. They hire 3rd party companies to move your stuff, and after I refused service for wanting to load my stuff on a truck then charge thousands more. I still have stuff missing from the company they hired going into my apartment. They were trying to basically con me by loading my stuff on the truck then forcing me to pay but luckily I caught it before they actually loaded my stuff. Watch the contract you sign, it is TOTALLY misleading on purpose. IF THIS HELPS AT LEAST ONE PERSON NOT GET RIPPED OFF BY THIS COMPANY, IT WOULD BE WORTH THE DEPOSIT THEY STOLE FROM ME AND NOT DOING ANY WORK.

I heard about First National Van Lines from a colleague. My experience with them was very good, Eric and his team were quick and efficient in moving my apartment from NJ to Brooklyn. They came prepared and were right on time. Ahead of the moving date, First National Van Lines provided me with a reminder plus a detailed list of my stuff that I had completed at the time of engagement with the price. That transparency and accuracy made me feel comfortable on a very stressful day. Thank you.

It really happened! The movers from First National Van Lines conducted a perfect move for me! It’s hard to believe but it actually happened. Nothing was broken or damaged in the end. I have heard about how sincere and reliable this company was. I got to experience it firsthand. Their customer service was also very friendly and always ready with an answer for whatever question I had. But the movers were just outstanding. I was stoked about how easy they made this move for me. Even the bill was very affordable.
