Smooth, efficient, professional and careful.

Pickup was find, but delivery was not because driver did not have any help. Some items lost, and some items broken, or scxratched
January 9, 2019
Derek and the 2 movers in Maine were excellent, and in NC Derek and Joe were excellent too. In both places, they were right on time. and thorough and careful. We lost nothing. Excellent job, Derek and helpers.

Great service from start to finish with Noyes. We requested a Rolls Royce level of service and Noyes delivered!

The packing and loading went smoothly. Only issue was contact information. The destination contact kept being called instead of the pick up client. Such as they were called (being 5:00am their time) when the packing person arrived instead of myself which was the local contact and person who initiated the move and contracted with United. This happened several times during the process...wrong number called.

The move, both out and in, went quickly and smoothly, and the three men who were involved each day were cheerful, courteous, and extremely careful with our belongings. Overall, it was a great experience.

The United Van Lines driver and his crew were wonderful to deal with and made the move much more pleasant than I could have imagined.
December 21, 2018
The entire team @ Noyes did a fabulous job. From the planning, packing, loading, unloading and removal of cartons following the move, all went well.
December 12, 2018
All aspects of the move flowed together seemlessly.
December 11, 2018
Pick up went extremely well. Everyone was careful,polite and and did a great job. Unfortunately our belongings had to be transferred to another truck. Between that and rhe delivery numerous items items were damaged.

It was a really good experience working with Frazer. He was knowledgable and informative and made the move easy. The moving crew were also outstanding. They were very careful with our things and they arrived and delivered on time.Kudos to all.
November 4, 2018
It seemed seamlessly smooth
October 31, 2018
Really enjoyed meeting and working with the driver and his crew. All were nice and were a pleasure to watch as they professionally wrapped and protected some of our more vulnerable items and carefully loaded them onto the van. Only one item was damaged that we threw in unprotected and was cheap plastic. We simply discarded it. Everything else arrived without damage.
October 30, 2018
The whole experience was satisfactory. The team worked effectively to schedule the move to our needs including changing from a small temporary move to a complete move to four different locations - one the day of loading the truck! Everyone was on time; the packers very efficient, and the loaders careful with all our belongings. The driver communication of drop times was spot on. All-in-all we couldn't have asked for more. But, I pretty much expected this . . . this was the third time I had moved with Noyes and each time they didn't disappoint!
October 26, 2018
Working with Don Owen and Phyllis Harmon was a pleasing experience
October 22, 2018
Driver, Charles Canty, and his nephew, Koran, were extremely pleasant, courteous, and helpful....they could not have been better.
October 22, 2018
Your Noyes affiliate was great in all respects. The estimate and flexibility were great from the outset. Everyone arrived on time, worked efficiently, always polite, careful with everything, great employed!
October 3, 2018
The experience was very favorable. The driver and crews were amazing and took the stress out of moving.
October 2, 2018
Travis made the move painless and easy. Service was excellent.
October 1, 2018
From first visit to all the calls, then mover Derek Babineau all the worries were gone.
September 24, 2018
The ease of my move went so smoothly I couldn’t believe it! The Van driver Fred, was so very nice and the 3 man crew that packed the truck were wonderful. These 4 men never stopped until the job was done and the truck was locked up! Total professional, total ease, total piece of mind! Everything arrived in Florida, on schedule, even with Hurricane Florence! All safe, intact, perfect!

I can't say enough about my recent experience with United Van Lines. Honest, reliable and trustworthy are only a few of the words To describe this company. I entrusted a transportation company to ship all of my household possessions from Boston to Florida purely based on a very competitive quote. Very short- sight sighted on my part. The adjectives I described above were the exact opposite of what I received. I was fortunate enough to connect with United Van Lines and was able to finally get settled into my new home.
September 10, 2018
Movers were on time, very careful and doing all they could to make the move easier for us.
September 5, 2018
Overall the experience was great. We had a small issue with an address change on the contract that was easy to correct. However I noticed it after hours on a Friday, the truck was coming on Monday and I was stressed. I wish there was some way to contact someone after hours to communicate with.
September 5, 2018
I thought your employees were excellent; competent, skilled, polite, efficient, understanding and often, fun.

August 10, 2018
Very professional service from initial contact , estimating, scheduling, loading all the way through unloading. But, most importantly all our belongings arrived undamaged.
August 9, 2018
Very smooth. Jim is the greatest all time driver for moving your items..
July 31, 2018
Very professional and polite, hard-working, and very efficient.
July 31, 2018
Noyes movers were excellent. Rarely have I met a more professional, polite, and hard working team. I say team because everything was coordinated. There was great internal and external communication. We are extremely pleased.
July 25, 2018
The moving crew did a fantastic job -- they were professional, careful, and courteous. This was in spite of the fact that they were given the wrong address (which I had corrected with the office) and not given the message that GPS would take them to the wrong town (which I had specifically told the office 3 times!). It must be frustrating to work with a back office that doesn't have your back. Communication was poor once we signed the contract -- I had to contact them to ask when they were coming. Would have been nice to get a reminder a week before the move, and to have someone check in with us. Moving is chaotic, and to have to keep on top of the movers makes it even more stressful.
July 17, 2018
Noyes Moving Co. was outstanding from the initial contact through loading the van. Our things have not yet arrived at our destination. To a person, every employee was pleasant, polite, and knowledgeable. This was a complex move, with things being sent to relatives in 2 states and the remainder to our home in Florida. Everything went as planned and on schedule. The packers and movers were very efficient and pleasant. I can’t imagine a better moving experience.
May 14, 2018
My whole experience Earle W Noyes & Sons/United was excellent! All persons involved were professional, courteous, and efficient.
May 10, 2018
Move went smoothly thanks to additional packing assistance I received the day before the move.
May 8, 2018
Great guidance during the planning for the move. Crew that laded and unloaded were extremely courteous and helpful. Driver communication timely and useful.
May 7, 2018
On time,professional and courteous
May 4, 2018
The original delivery date was provided, but in the end it was adjusted due to pickup and delivery of other clients. This caused a delay in the receiving of our goods, and was a bit of a disappointment.
May 3, 2018
Fraser and Justine were a pleasure to work with, everything happened like they said it would. The loading and unloading crew were great, very careful with our furniture and boxes.
April 25, 2018
Very professional, pleasant to work with.
April 17, 2018
I worked with Phyllis. She was terrific. Responsive and efficient to a degree that far exceeded my expectations. She arranged a piggyback move of one piece of furniture from NJ to ME with delivery within one week. I could not be more pleased. My husband took delivery as I was out of town. He said the crew kept him informed of timeframes and were professional and efficient. Great work by all and thanks.
April 12, 2018
Everything about the experience was phenomenal. Noyes moving in Portland, ME (Don and Phyllis), the packers and the movers. My 51 GMC arrived in great condition, my personal belongings arrived in great condition, nothing damaged - but beyond that it was the individual attitudes of people along the way that made it so pleasurable. The moving van guys - Mike and Wallace were amazing. You guys have the moving business dialed in.
April 11, 2018
Simple process made even easier by an experienced and considerate moving firm.
April 10, 2018
Noyes and Sons in Portland Maine was wonderful. Bob Morley and Carissa Larsen were comforting and fantastic to deal with. I had never used a moving company before and they were kind and great. The gentlemen who packed me up in Portland were also wonderful, meticulous, kind, caring and careful.
April 8, 2018
Was very apprehensive about moving and everyone was terrific from Don Olen to our driver Todd Cartes to all the guys that packed and loaded our things. Everything arrived and nothing was damage. Very happy with the service.......
March 20, 2018
Loved all of it, except the expense of moving 500#....but the service was awesome. This is the first time I have used professional movers and I knew it would be expensive, but it's within the range I estimated.

The two drivers Carl and Anthony were excellent and very professional.However, there was a three day delay in delivering our belongings due to poor management in the Portland, Me office. A driver called out of work and it took three days to locate another driver and have him reload our belongings which had been placed in storage(Tues-Fri.)
February 26, 2018
The movers were great and the driver was so nice and kept us in the loop as he arrived in South Carolina. Showed up on time and was most helpful.
February 23, 2018
The move was a very positive experience
February 14, 2018
Perfect, easy, painless, I trusted you the whole time, worth every penny
February 7, 2018
Excellent job by all people involved in our move from the initial meeting to the removal of boxes and paper after we unpacked.
Matt & Lori
February 6, 2018
Everyone was great. Exceeded every expectation that I had. Everyone from start to finish was great. The Maine packing crew was awesome. One of the two helpers unloading the truck was a bit of a grump, but seemed to get over it after a while and did a good job. Our driver was the best! I was impressed with how everyone we dealt with understood that our move was stressful, and they made sure to make us feel like they had everything under control and make things as easy as possible for us.
January 26, 2018
From the staff who assesses the move to the movers who load, unload, drive and assist at both ends, I was totally impressed with their courtesy, their attention to detail and their extreme care in handling not only my antiques but also my plastic storage bins!!! This was a temporary move to arrive at a new location and give myself time to familiarize myself with the area before I search for a permanent home to buy. I already have the local United number for the upcoming move. They made this 1500 mile move so much easier. They'll be terrific across town!
January 18, 2018
Overall a good experience
December 27, 2017
from the start to the finish everyone associated with united was very easy and professional to work with. i would recommend this company to anyone planning a move
December 27, 2017
All personnel great and courteous. Unfortunately substantial damage was sustained during the move. Thus far, the response to this has been very gracious and responsive. Move took place right on schedule and we were kept informed. A visit to our home prior to the move to give us advice and guidance was invaluable.
Michael & Laura
December 27, 2017
Phyllis Harmon was so kind, responsive and helpful. She really put my mind at ease and I thoroughly enjoyed working with her.
December 24, 2017
the movers were very professional, helpful, courteous and tried very hard to make a very stressful situation for me to be less stressful and easier
December 21, 2017
The communication was timely and thorough. The binding estimate was binding! The truck driver, Jim Colebrook, was fantastic - thorough and careful.

United Van Lines has been our choice of moving agents throughout a number of moves. Biggest attraction? Good packers!
December 20, 2017
Every aspect of the move was as promised. The cost, time to pack, when the load would be picked up and delivered.
December 9, 2017
customer service was excellent; from Fraser who gave us the quote, Phyllis, at the office, who answered all our questions regarding our specific concerns regarding the move, and the terrific team who moved us from Maine to Massachusetts
November 28, 2017
I was very satisfied with everyone involved with my move. Brent did an excellent job estimating my move. Phyllis was very helpful explaining the move & following up to see how things were going & after the move checking in to make sure I was okay. My move team of Tann,Sean, & Medard were great at the little extras asked of them when I changed my mind with the original placement of a few items. The care they gave my goods was outstanding. Excellent job everyone & Thank you.
November 13, 2017
Movers were efficient and courteous.I liked the fact that my quote was a guaranteed amount with no extra surprise costs.
November 9, 2017
We believe the move went flawlessly. I mean no issues from the very start of our process of moving. Phyllis and Don who assisted us could not have been more helpful!
November 1, 2017
I am very pleased with the entire experience from Dan to Phyllis to the moving team - everyone was professional, helpful and easy to work with. The moving team was efficient and very careful in handling my possessions and taking. Are to not hurt the house (walls/floors).
October 30, 2017
Great move with careful courteous crews on both ends. On time pickup and delivery, no damage or loss. Great follow-up by origin agent.
October 26, 2017
Local contact (Earl W Noyes) was excellent. Delivery date kept getting pushed back which became frustrating after the third time.
John & Sue
October 19, 2017
We moved on an extremely hot day. The men never complained. I do however they wanted to get home and out of the heat which resulted in them moving too fast at times and causing damage to our new home. Even though they knew the had caused damage, they didn't tell us. We had to find it on our own. Felt they should have pointed out.
Marie & Bonnie
October 16, 2017
Movers unloading were careless,and broke and scratched several items. Specifically a brand new never used dining room table.
October 15, 2017
All workers were very friendly, efficient and helpful. I had to wait far too long for delivery of my belongings! Delivery was 2 days out from the contracted delivery prediction of a 7 day range which was a lot to begin with. Some financial compensation should have been made to me for the excessive inconvenience. Clarissa was always very nice and helpful.
October 12, 2017
&4 years old and it was my first LD move. Thanks to Don Olen, and Phyllis Harmon they made it exceptionally easy and painless.
David & Jane
October 10, 2017
Very pleased with the service. Not an easy move, as we had items going to three (3) different locations.
October 4, 2017
Truck should call when it is late
October 2, 2017
This move could not have been smoother and we have moved 11 times in our married life !
September 26, 2017
Our movers, Kyle, Chip and Josh were all great. They were very professional, thorough, and careful and not one item was damaged. They were also friendly and courteous. Josh and Kyle even helped us move a large gas grill off our deck after the move was completed, which was a huge help for us!
Will & Ardith
September 18, 2017
Everything about this move was fabulous, from Phyllis in Portland, Maine, to Derek who drove, and the people who packed and loaded. You came highly recommended, and the entire time, I felt like I was your only customer. Everyone fell over backwards to please us, and nothing could have been improved. I can't say enough good about our experience.
September 14, 2017
The men that came to move our stuff out of our house were not very pleasant. They huffed and puffed about everything and seemed to be annoyed to move larger items.
September 1, 2017
Excellent overall. Don Olen was superb in explaining why his firm was clearly superior to the competition and he described a number of ways to make the move better. Rene Pepin and his helpers were wonderful to work with and did an efficient and perfect job loading and unloading.
Brian & Linda

Excellent service from the beginning to the end!!

We selected United/ Noyes Moving in Portland Maine for our recent move from Maine to North Carolina in August. They were great to work with, responsive, thorough and we had a good move with them.
Alan & Joyce
August 22, 2017
From estimate to delivery, the experience was perfect, giving us confidence and reducing stress.
August 9, 2017
Delivery did not arrive in scheduled time and took longer than expected. One item was not delivered at all, but it was later received weeks later.
August 8, 2017
I was very satisfied with the whole Process, from the original estimate to the final delivery
August 3, 2017
Overall it was timely, but the packing was slipshod and items were lost or damaged in transit.
August 3, 2017
Overall, I describe the move experience as "adequate". There were many frustrations involved, unfortunately, which have tainted this move experience.
George & Bobbie
July 29, 2017
Because this was a short-distance move with one truck load, we were disappointed that the delivery date was moved to a day later than we understood it would be. Carissa, in the home office, and Andy, one of our movers, were exceptional in working the delivery out so we had our load on the day expected.
July 24, 2017
Very professional from start to finish. On time, intact, and very good Personnel
July 20, 2017
Although packing, pickup and delivery were all as scheduled/promised and everything arrived at our destination with negligible damage, there were numerous issues with: boxes for pre-packing not arriving as promised, poor overall communications about steps during the move process, poor packer labeling, poor communication of requirements from the salesman to actual movers, actual movers making statements that were not backed up by the company, an attempted actual delivery of one wrong container/crate coupled with one missing container/crate of ours.
July 18, 2017
The move went perfectly. Paul and his helpers were great.
July 13, 2017
Overall we had a fantastic experience. Great communication from quote, to scheduling, to pickup, to delivery.
July 9, 2017
My washing machine was damaged and I have filed a claim, but received no response.
July 6, 2017
Rhonda and Frasier were excellent!!! The movers in Maine that loaded the truck were positive with outstanding attitudes!!! Then A-Marazek moving unloaded the truck in StLouis were just as outstanding!!!
Shawn & Katie

The experience was a very positive interaction. The driver and the movers were all very professional and positive throughout the entire process.
June 27, 2017
Could not have asked for better service. Don, Phyllis, and Chad with Noyes were GREAT. Also the driver Bruce was fantastic.
May 31, 2017
We have used Noyes out of Portland, ME in the past and we're very pleased with their service. We feel that this move was handled in the same professional way we've come to expect. Don Olen, Phyllis Harmon and Jerry the driver did a great job.
May 25, 2017
An amazing experience from the moment the team arrived to pack my belowings, to the super team of Sean & Tan packing the truck to them arriving at my location and unloading the truck. My fears after reading reviews on moving companies was was totally unfounded because i selected Earle Noyes & Sons moving, a United company.
May 22, 2017
The move was so effortless... which is what I needed. I've been working everyday in Maine and living in a hotel room, so the transition from New York could've easily been a brutal one, but thanks to Shawn, Tan, & Smitty our relocation was a smooth process. They packed and moved me with such care. Thank you United Van Lines. Love, The Laura's
May 18, 2017
overall it was good. Maine staff were superb! Ohio people were only ok..... and we made a mistake in letting go of the paperwork before documenting a couple of things
Bill And Lyn
May 15, 2017
All involved were very easy to work with and accommodated our needs.
Karen & Bill
May 15, 2017
Packers and movers were on time, were very easy to work with, and packed/moved very well. They labeled the boxes well, so it has been easy to locate things as we unpack. Our driver, Chip, was very thorough, communicated well, and showed up with our things even earlier than he thought he would. One of the local movers who was hired to help unload our things, was a bit "surly," but Chip handled it in stride.
Linda & Bill
April 26, 2017
Our overall move experience was positive from beginning to end. The employees we dealt with are the very best ....starting with Bob Morley and his assistant, Carissa to Chip and his crew. We are very comfortable in recommending Noyes for any moving job, big or small!
April 23, 2017
Great experience! From the first call I made on a rather short notice, Donald Olen from E.W. Noyes made it happen to get to my house and give me a quote. The final price ended up being exactly what he quoted me.
April 8, 2017
The staff ( Robert and Carissa) and moving crew ( Sean, Tam, Smitty) were very professional and helpful throughout the entire process. I was especially impressed with how the moving crew reflected United Van Lines commitment to quality and procedure in how they performed their tasks. United Van Lines was perfect start to finish.
March 14, 2017
HIGH PERSONAL ATTENTION TO THE MOVE AS A WHOLE AND TO THE PROTECTION OF THE ITEMS BEING MOVED. CAREFUL, CONSIDERATE AND COST EFFECTIVE. WELL CHOSEN AGENT AT OTHER END OF MOVE. DEFINITELY RECOMMEND
John And Punkie
March 8, 2017
From start to finish, Noyes provided outstanding customer service. Every person we interacted with was professional and treated us as though we were their most important move! Although another company might have been slightly less expensive, we know we made the right decision to go with Notes The adage "you get what you pay for" was definitely true!!
February 13, 2017
Bob Morley my coordinator assisted me throughout the process, Carissa Larsen for continuing to follow up, and Frank the driver, who did a great job on the pick up as well as the delivery. A wonderful team effort.
Robert And Kimb
January 23, 2017
Everyone along the way was EXTREMELY helpful and made our move go very smoothly. We truly appreciate all that everyone at Noyes/United and the contractors they work with did for us.
