    Several expensive items were stolen. The sterling silver was listed on the separate "High Value Inventory" page, and prior to the move all those items were appraised and photographed. The broken glass flowers were supposedly reported to you during packing. I have made multiple calls to Schaap Movers and none of the calls were returned.

  • Kay C.

    The move experience from beginning to end was well orchestrated and managed. I felt very informed and ready for the move, with all of my questions and concerns handled professionally. The movers arrived as scheduled and moved methodically through the rooms, wrapping furniture items and moving boxes to the driveway before loading onto the truck. The delivery, nearly 1200 miles, arrived at its destination one week later. I am close to being completely unpacked and am pleased 99.9% of items made it in excellent condition. Four items packed by the mover and placed into dishpacks didn't make it - 3 lenox dishes and one pedestal cake dish. That's pretty minor given the scale of the move. I am pleased with United, and Schaap on the local level, did an excellent job orchestrating the move. Thank you, Kay Champagne

    The movers were prompt, extremely hard working, and respectful. My wife and I were very impressed with their work ethic and professionalism. Working with everyone from United Van Lines was a good experience.

    The moving teams were excellent, both the loading end and the unloading end. They were competent and friendly. I was not pleased when they changed the arrival date by a full week and when my phone calls were not returned.

    communication once our belonging were picked up was poor. I was not notified of their whereabouts until 24 hours prior to delivery. I sent an email about broken glass shelves and have not gotten a response.

    Katherine Koretnicki with Schaap Moving, my initial contact, was professional & responsive & the reason I chose United & not another major mover. I did interview 3 companies. The two men who loaded my belongings on the truck were remarkably efficient & pleasant. 11 days later my belongings were delivered to my new home in FL in the same condition they left Albany. Again, 2 remarkably efficient and pleasant men unloaded my belongings, placed furniture where asked and were off. Long distance moving is stressful & expensive. The professional, reliable people involved in my move, starting with Katherine, gave me the sense that they were helping to relocate a person and not just furniture. They did a great job. Thank you everyone!

    From the first call from Kathy to the van leaving after we moved in we were extremely pleased with every aspect of United. Kathy took impeccable detail in assisting with every step of this 1800 mile journey. Our packers, our driver Greg and the team of delivery helpers were amazing. We want to thank you for getting our lives off to a wonderful new beginning in Texas.

    I was very pleased with the entire process. I moved furniture that I inherited from my mother. The move was from NY to KY. Many of the pieces were cherished antiques. Nothing was damaged and the driver was very good. Called me to update me on the arrival date and time. I was very impressed! I would definitely recommend this method of moving estate furnishings to friends.

    This was certainly one of the best moves that we have made and we were very happy with all aspects of it. We have used United Van Lines before with somewhat similar results.

    If we ever had to move again I would specifically request Greg Murray, our driver. He made this process zero stress from start to finish.

    I was inquiring about a long distance move with a variety of moving companies and and received immediate excellent service from Raymond Schultz with United Van Lines. He was the main reason why I choose United Van Lines. He provided me with exact information and quotes and assisted me along the way with this long distance moving transition. I highly recommend this company for all your long distance or cross country moving needs!!!
