    We loved the driver Oscar! He was amazing and organized. We have given his card to others how are possible moving in the next few years.

    The moving process was very easy from start to finish. As soon as I initiated a request, an associate contacted me to schedule a free home estimate. As soon as Frank Buckley completed the estimate, he was very responsive and very honest about all the costs. As soon as I selected United as the vendor, Frank put me in touch with all the right people. When I was waiting to hear about the status of my move, I was contacted several times which was wonderful to make sure everything was on track. The movers came within the stated time frame to pack up and the movers arrived within 3 days and unpacked within 2 hours. I was very happy with everything!

    I appreciated being kept informed about the details all along, and that my United rep, John Horist, communicated regularly with me.

    This was our first time using a moving company. We moved from CA to WA & it was very anxiety provoking! UVL was amazing! I can't say how grateful I am for all the care everyone took with us.

    Even though the rep who came to our house underestimated the size of our load, Merit handled the overflow seamlessly. We had a second truck out to our house within an hour and the remainder of our items arrived to our new location within about 5 days.

  • Omar M.

    The driver was knowledgeable about packing, cared about how we needed things packed and then unpacking in new place. Lots of patience not adding to the madness

    My move from Orange County to Boise went seamlessly. John Horist and Ellie were always very responsive to any questions and concerns. Ellie kept me completely informed. Jesse and his Irange County crew were polite, efficient and professional. Michael and his Boise crew were also very professional and efficient. United made a daunting task a pleasant experience.

    Great communication. Merit Moving Systems was awesome! This is the 2nd time I have used Merit and United.

  • Art M.
    Newport Bch, CA
    to Sarasota, FL
    December 10, 2018

    Generally, things went well, although we hit too many speed bumps along the way, including: (1) CA: truck loaders did not show up as scheduled, (2) in FL unloading was delayed 1 day, (3) the driver was not informed by dispatch that there was a stop at Public Storage, (4) they left a rug on the truck that required a return visit the next day, and (5) it took two additional visits to uncrate and reassemble some goods. With that said, packers, loaders, and unloaders were courteous and efficient. Packers did an excellent job; nothing was broken. Jess, the long haul driver, is a real professional. We're still opening boxes and nothing appears to be missing. John Horist was the key to having all of the snags fixed. If it weren't for the above cited issues I would have given the highest rating

    It was as painless of a move as I've ever experienced. Merritt Van Lines subsidiary of United was fantastic, friendly, responsive and fair throughout the whole process. Would absolutely recommend them again. Frank Buckley who reviewed my furniture and gave an estimate was helpful and informative. While Ellie Soltero was great keeping me up to date on the steps of the move. And all the movers were polite and careful with my furniture.

  • Ken H.

    Our estimator Frank was AMAZING. The moving crew showed up on time, they were careful yet quick. Also very personable. The move in crew on the other end worked their tails off in the blistering heat on 4th of July. Great teams from start to finish.

  • Mike O.

    Pick-up was ontime; loading was very orderly and care was taken to product all shipping itmes. Delivery was also orderly and no items were damaged or lost.

  • Erica C.

    From the initial survey with Frank, to both the packing/moving crews, very efficient,and professional.

  • Sean B.

    June 06, 2018

    From start to finish, I felt like a valuable customer. John was careful, patient and flexible. Pricing was fair. While we packed our own boxes, damage was very minor. Joe and his crew on both ends of the trip were spectacular. As tough as the process is for families like ours, United made it as good as possible!

  • William L.

    The whole move process went great. The weight estimate was very accurate. People involved were all professional. Only drawback I have is the cost. Always looking for competitive pricing. The one cost I have trouble with is the protection/insurance fee. Limited options, and what was offered was very pricey. Maybe I should have skipped it.

    The driver was beyond fantastic. Very professional, answered all questions, oversaw entire loading/unloading. Movers were courteous & careful. Everything loaded & unloaded with extreme & upmost care. Timely & complete.

    Merit and Armstrong movers via United were all a pleasure to work with. The movers arrived when they said they would, were cheerful and quick. Special thanks to Jesse at Merit for his help and patience and to Terry and Peter with Armstrong for going above and beyond to find a misplaced item! Thanks United!

    From start to finish my experience with Merit / United team was excellent. Frank Buckley was extremely helpful and patient, kept in contact with me to assure my questions and concerns were addressed throughout the process. A real pleasure to work with. Sam, my driver was great during the move from Cypress, CA to Arizona - keeping in contact with me and working to make my delivery time within the time frame I needed since I work in Nevada and needed the window to arrive before him for the delivery. The logistics gal at the Corp office contacted me on a few occasions to confirm that my move was going well and assure my needs were being met. All team members represent you company with professionalism and promptness. It was apparent that my concerns were important to them. Your company made this move - a stressful situation easier to get thru. You should be proud of the team that supported me during my move. Thank you all!!! There is no hesitation in referring your company.

    My move was specific! Some things in my apt., every thing else in garage! The movers used 2 color tags. I guessed one color for apt., the other for the garage! So far, & this is a month later!! I haven’t found my bed pillows! My dishes or silverware! Ok, I can use paper & plastic! But was that the point?? Plus I have 3 sets of bed pillows so it is stupid that I need to go buy new pillows!! My bedroom mirror was damaged! Several other things as well & worst of all several things were left at my home in California & didn’t get put on the truck & will now need to be replaced!! The worst thing for me is the damage I have found already & the fact that everything that was packed in the garage will not be unpacked & examined until I actually move into my new home! I’m seriously concerned about the unseen damage! I only have 90 days to file for damage & loss! What do I do about what was left in California? Most of my previous moves were handled by United so I’m concerned!

    Very professional. We hada fantastic experience with our movers - at both ends. of our cross-country move.

  • Elaina S.

    November 20, 2017

    The personnel that packed us up and unloaded at the other end were really great. Frank, the gentleman with Merit Movers that gave our estimate as well as Ellie were great to work with but the time frames given/proposed for cross-country moves could really stand some improvement.

  • Michael M.
    Pasadena, CA

    Generally a very smooth and efficient move.

  • Lia B.

    October 29, 2017

    Salesman, Frank Buckley was friendly, professional and thorough in quoting. Once the load had been put on the truck and it was determined that the load was over in weight Frank was not happy, accusatory, and unprofessional. The boxes that were offloaded and transported by a different driver are short (missing) two boxes. No follow up by anyone.

  • Terry M.

    Working with John, Ellie and Brandon was a great experience! Brandon and his team o. Both ends of my move were amazing! Best move ever because of Brandon and his local teams.

    Pick up men and deliveryman where incredible they cared about my merchandise and zipper with the wrong your driver deserves an incredible raise he was extremely pleasant and quite a gentleman and work closely with both of us will always remember our move from California to Florida thank you so much

  • George Z.
    Newport Bch, CA
    to New Albany, OH
    October 01, 2017

    The packers and movers were very careful with my belongings. They showed they cared, and handled them like they were theirs. They would ask questions about do you want it this way and took the time to explain everything. They arrived on time and delivered on time. No question was a bother and they handled everything like we wanted. Would rate the service GREAT and the people wonderful. Felt like a family move!

  • Alice L.
    W Hollywood, CA
    to Bremerton, WA
    September 20, 2017

    Our overall moving experience was generally positive. Especially given that we had a large number of items in a separate storage facility that were not well packed or organized. From the initial estimate, through to packing of our home and coordinating with the office, things went smoothly and everyone was always accessible when I had questions. Robert Ireland, our Delivery Driver was especially professional and great to work with as were the two young men who were working with him to offload. Bobby even went out of his way to help me find one HV box that wasn't properly logged by the packing team in LA. I don't fault the team in LA for this, as the box was added in on the 2nd day of packing the LA items.

  • David A.

  • Susan M.

    The brothers that moved us were waiting to go each day none stop very, very careful with every item and we had 20000lbs they made sure that the additional help they needed on a couple of days treated our move like they did they worked long hours only positives for them . My previous mover was good but these guys were superior in every aspect

    Overall, all parts of the move were great, from the initial in-house meeting with Frank Buckley to get our quote, to Jesse and his crew packing and loading up our stuff, to our driver, Barry and the crew here in Chicago unloading and setting up the furniture. VERY little damage -- nothing worth declaring at this point. Very pleased:).

    I was so happy with the care that was taken with my heavy furniture both on packing and then unpacking at the final destination that I wish we had United pack and move more items for us. We moved some real heavy pieces and now realize we should have let the experts handle it. Frank was amazing during both ends of the move!

And every one was professional, amiable, flexible and nice with above and beyond attitudes! Frank Buckley took great care of us from start to finish as did Ellie. This was one of the best customer experiences we've enjoyed in quite some time! Well done! Thank you!!
