A Consumer Affairs review of the 10 top U.S. moving companies rated American Van Lines, International Van Lines and Long Distance Van Lines as the best three in the country. It ranked each business on expert-review factors such as customer service, cost, reliability and claims, as well as by customer reviews and overall assessment.
Although American Van Lines is headquartered in Pompano Beach, Florida, the company has branches in many major American cities nationwide. It offers both short- and long-distance moves for residential and commercial clients, as well as storage, visa and immigration services. Eighty-three percent of customers who submitted reviews of American Van Lines to Consumer Affairs gave the company a top rating of five out of five stars, while an additional 10 percent gave it four out of five.
Based in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, International Van Lines provides many of the same services as its competitor, American Van Lines. The company, founded in 2007, garnered a five-out-of-five star rating from 63 percent of customers who reviewed the company with Consumer Affairs. Another 27 percent of clients gave IVL a four-star rating.
Long Distance Van Lines provides similar short- and long-range relocations to the other two companies, operating many nationwide branches. It offers premium packing services to clients, in which the company's movers expertly pack items, including fragile and antique objects, for safe movement.
