Allied Van Lines
Allied Van Lines exceeded all expectations with my family's move from Los Angeles to Seattle. Our move was an extremely pleasant experience solely because of Allied... and that says a lot when talking about moving because it is one of the most stressful and unpleasant things to do. Allied was a class act experience from start to finish -- from the initial quote (which was the lowest and best) to the several changes and questions we had for over two months (always accommodating and got back to me right away with no complaints) to the very clear communication about the process of the move to the packers and movers who loaded everything up to the movers who unloaded everything (and arrived EARLY) to the wrap up and claims we had (which were minimal and they quickly reimbursed). I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS MOVING COMPANY AND WILL ONLY USE THEM FOR ANY FUTURE MOVES! Thank you, thank you Allied!

Berger Transfer & Storage handled my move from Los Angeles CA to Las Vegas NV. They were totally professional. From the estimate to the packing and transport to Las Vegas my move was done at the time they gave me from the arrival time for packing and loading to the delivery the next morning in Las Vegas. The crew were careful not to damage my furniture. They also provided a total of 5 packers including the driver to pack and load me.They saved me over a thousand dollars on the cost of my move over the quote that I got from Mayflower. I have recommended Berger Transfer & Storage which is a agent of Allied Van Lines to my friends who are also moving to Las Vegas. They are outstanding and stand by their quotes and down what they say they are going to do for you!

Tips & Advices
Yes, it’s best to empty drawers, wardrobes and chests before a move. Items always get knocked around a bit, and doors can fly open even if they’ve been taped. In fact, more often than not, movers will want to remove the drawers from a dresser--or disassemble the wardrobe to be more space-efficient.
Yes, it is customary to tip movers, but the amount varies widely. For full-service moves, a 5 percent tip is suggested, although, for extra service, some people go up to 10 percent . For small local movers, you can give each mover $10 for a few-hour job, or $20-$40 for jobs that take longer.
A bill of lading is the legal contract for the move. It provides a detailed receipt, in addition to a contract between the client and the mover. It authorizes the mover to transport the goods from one specific point to another, and it outlines the exact scope of services, with cost breakdown for those services. It also provides an itemized list of the inventory, and carrier liability protection for each declared item. Finally, it specifies the payment arrangement. Make sure to go over your itemized list extremely carefully before finalizing the paperwork--and get a copy of the full document. A good mover will go over everything on the bill of lading with the customer.
There are several items that moving companies will not move – those items will be listed on a document as “non-allowables.” These items typically fall in three categories: perishables, sentimental/personal items, and hazardous material. Perishables are food and plants. Sentimental/personal value is up to the client to decide, but usually includes jewelry, medical and dental records, personal paperwork, valuables and collectibles. Hazardous material is the tricky category, since it includes a lot of everyday items found in the garage, garden or kitchen. For example, cleaning liquids and pesticides both are considered non-allowable by many companies. Some go so far as to disallow nail polish and batteries.
A binding estimate means that the moving company cannot charge more than the stated amount, though they can lower the final bill if the scope of the job was smaller than expected. A non-binding moving estimate is more likely to wind up costing more than expected, since the movers can increase their rates for unforeseen variables like stairs, “long carry” and materials.
