    I was glad I chose Otto Nelson amd a local moving company. They were responsive, on time and provided boxes, tape amd paper. They delivered my elderly mothers furniture first. Dave the driver was great at keeping me informed and assisting with issues that arose

    The initial consultation with George was exceptionally thorough. Very impressed with the presentation as to what we could expect. All staff encountered were polite and helpful. Plus, we got all of our stuff upon move in with no breakage.

    The loading up part of the move was average, but the team at the final destination (our new home) were terrific. They were personable, polite, helpful and concerned that things were done the way we wanted them to be. Great team!

    Pick up crew was stellar. They were true gentlemen working in an area with lots of people and traffic and a slow elevator. Amazing job by my coordinator Mickey as well.She explained everything well and communicated with me at all times. She was always available to me when I had any questions and reassured me at every phase. My delivery was made in a timely fashion and everything was placed and assembled as ordered. The only thing I am waiting for is a couple of repairs. All in all, it went like a first class machine!!!

    My move was last minute and United was able to handle it. I do wish I had a little more advance notice of when they were picking up & dropping off my items. I knew the day, but not the times.

    Otto Nelson United Van Lines are Outstanding in every way. I can't complement this entire company enough for their exceptional customer service! Moving is rarely a pleasant experience but I can honestly say I actually enjoyed every aspect! The website was well designed and I was contacted immediately by Michaela Rodrigurz, who directed me to Terry Cina, as my personal moving coordinator. What a great team Mikki and Terry are! They scheduled my move with Wayne Lemke and his team who took care of every detail. My belongings were delivered, set up and I had no worries at all! My son received the delivery and he was equally as impressed as I was. Many Thanks for your professionalism. I won't hesitate to recommend you in the future! Sincerely, Jackie Sherrill Totally Satisfied Customer

    This was our first experience with a long distance move, so we had mixed emotions and did not know what to expect, especially when reading and hearing the many horror stories. George from Otto Nelson Moving & Storage (agent for United Van Lines) came out to assess our move and was the BEST at answering any and all questions, as well as his "go to gal"/coordinator, Kim who was also the BEST at keeping us informed and answering any and all questions or concerns that came up. Our driver James Taylor with Armstrong Relocation in MS was also top notch and did a great job of transporting our home. He was quick, efficient and made sure our items were properly wrapped. I think I would have to say the hardest part of this whole experience, is not knowing who you ultimately work with. It is hard to know if the agent/agents you are working with will meet your standards or care about your items like you do. I was extremely grateful for the agents that handled our move, both were extremely good at what they do and I feel we were in good hands. We went in with an open mind, knowing there was the potential for some damage, and there has been a few items with dings and small scratches, but nothing major, and far less than we expected, and nothing to cry over considering the distance.

    My move with Otto Nelson Moving & Storage of Kenosha, WI was handled with expertise, patience, and kindness. Any personal household move halfway across the US, after 50 plus years is stressful...BUT with United's Tom, Terry, and Dave all involved survived!!!

    The entire process, from the estimate to the follow up office calls to the entire crew at the Wisc. end, they were everything we had hoped for. Even the packers had our best interest at heart by the questions and comments they made. Danny was especially helpful.The delivery went well and ahead of schedule. Kudo's! As of this moment, no damage was observed and nothing missing. All in all-a great job. Thank you..

    George was very thorough in the initial mtg describing what services were available and how much care would be taken of our belongings. Kim was helpful whenever I had questions. Dave our driver was very considerate and took great care with my baby grand piano. The loading guys were fairly good however we found out about some significant damage to the highboy and a large missing trim piece only when the dresser arrived at the destination. The SC unloading guys were awesome and considerate. hard working was an understatement. Over all without the damage claim experience still to be determined we are fairly satisfied.

    Every single person I spoke with from the appraiser to the office staff to the moving men were fantastic. Everything arrived in perfect condition. I couldn’t have been more pleased. Would most certainly give this name to any friend thinking about a move.

    Otto Nelson is a GREAT group of folks..... Overall, I would reccomend them in a heartbeat! Tery Cina went out of his way to accamodate us and was very patient. Office staff was awesome and great to work with. Packing crew was a great group of folks. They were respectful and patient. We have a couple of incidents to file with insurance, but we would use again. Have expeirance with other moving companies and very happy with Otto Nelson!

    Otto Nelson was the best. From the pack up team to the delivery. Was spot on with the estimate. Mike and Marco was the greatest delivery team ever. Kept us informed along and delivered a day early. Thanks again for everyone at Otto Nelson Company in Kenosha.

    With the exception of one issue we had, everything went well. The truck arrived on time, the driver - Dave was professional and experienced. The one issue was one of the crew at the NC end. He was a self-proclaimed "Bull in a china shop". And it showed. He lacked any concern for our property, and relied on brute force to get the job done. After the fact, we discovered numerous dings and nicks in multiple pieces. Doors and drawers needed to be adjusted to work properly, as some pieces were knocked out of alignment.

    Having never moved before after 48 years of marriage, I was very anxious about it. I found it to be a good experience from beginning to end. Terry selling me on the contract,the first 2 packers in Wi. worked quickly, quietly and seemingly very efficiently, Mickey in the Kenosha office couldn't have been pleasanter. When I needed more time to get this darn house closed, the driver was willing to wait. Even his pick up crew did a great job which I had also worried about. Just couldn't have been nicer. I was sorry I had fiddled with packing stuff before I contracted with United. Very good experience all the way around.

    Everything was handled timely, professionally, and reasonably priced from picking everything up in WI., storing for six months, and delivering to FL.. Nothing damaged or lost.

    From the beginning to the end of our experience, this group was professional, polite, dedicated to excellent performance,and obviously was interested in trying to make the move perfect in every way possible. They listened to all our requests carefully. They showed up as scheduled and were all groomed professionally. They put down coverings on all areas of any rugs (ours were white) so as not to soil any inadvertently. They worked together seamlessly and tirelessly. No art objects were damaged...even to the point of mounted fish hung on walls...not a fin was out of place! They worked efficiently...from the "packing group" to the "loading group. And they appeared to enjoy their respective jobs, helping each other when necessary to accomplish the tasks without hesitation. They were detailed in their record keeping making unloading much easier at the end of the process. George Follensbee's service was the "gold standard" that should be used up to train all United Movers.

    The men that packed our stuff to move were very careful. Wish I could say as much for the ones who delivered it.

    I received quotes from other moving companies as I began the planning process for a cross country move. I was constantly weighing what seemed like a fair price with quality service, and was mostly guessing. United was recommended to me by a family member. Upon first interactions I knew something was different about United Van Lines, and felt comfortable trusting them with my belongings and with the overall moving process. From start to finish I had a great experience!
