    I couldn’t have chosen anyone better than Lawrence moving company. They worked great as a team and got the job done in a timely manner. Were extremely nice and did anything I asked them to do, including carrying a heavy mattress upstairs for me. I highly recommend.

    The driver was very friendly and worked very efficient. He was courteous and has excellent driving skills. All the movers that helped was also very friendly and super efficient at their job even though my apartment was on the third floor.

    Everything was well packed. I have had other cross-country moves and nothing compares to how well this one went. Matthew and Levi were exceptionally good packing us. They were polite and cordial and we appreciated their helpfulness.

  • Ronald B.

    September 19, 2018

    The packing went very well. The driver was excellent. Unloading went mostly well with the main issue being the local guys sometimes put boxes in the wrong rooms. It also appears the front bumper of our car was slightly out of place, but I am not sure if that is for a separate survey. We are filling out the claim form for that.

  • Sue D.

    The load process was very poor. Took too long (8.5 hrs). 3 people. 2 were on cell phones way too much. The unload/delivery process was excellent. Very courteous/careful. Just 2 men. Took 4 hours to unload and put furniture back together. Wish I had the delivery crew for the loading crew.

    We have moved a few times. I know this was a smaller move (moved my parents to a retirement home), but this was by far the easiest move we have done.

  • Lisa M.
    Moneta, VA
    to Fernandina, FL
    May 07, 2018

    The only "glitch" we had was that all of belongings did not fit on the original tractor trailer that was sent due to previous loads being more than what was estimated. That caused an issue as we had to wait for another truck and they did not reinventory everything at the time of putting it onto the truck. A 3rd truck driver had to reinventory the 2nd load which meant that we had 2 sets of stickers on a lot of items which made it very confusing when the 2nd load arrived at the storage unit. The movers themselves were excellent and professional.

    We had a great driver and move/pack team.

    Walter, Ruby and Chris were wonderful to my mother-in-law and sister. I really appreciated their thoroughness, thoughtfulness and work ethic. Sharon and Tammy. They were always willing to answer my questions and communicate every step of the way.

    the move went much smoother than I anticipated and apparently much smoother than the norm. I am most pleased.

    Overall I was pleased with my experience with United and with my local United group in Roanoke, VA (Lawrence Transportation Systems). I especially want to single out my main contact there, Tammy Swader. She was an absolute sweetheart in helping me through the entire process, not only before the move (which was her main responsibility) but also during and after the move. I probably talked to her 25 or 30 times during the overall process and she did everything in her power to make sure that the move went smoothly. I would also cite the driver, whom I only knew as Huey. He was very professional in managing the packers and the unloaders at our destination and helpful on numerous occasions with special requests. My only negative comment overall was that in the rush of loading the truck I was not able to verify the inventory to be able to identify important items for unloading, so that now 4 weeks afterwards I am still trying to find various things among boxes that are vaguely labeled.

  • Frances Deedee G.

    My overall move experience was excellent from the day I first called United and talked to Sharon to schedule my move until my household goods were delivered by Tim. I did have one damaged piece of furniture, a table, but the claims department is handling it for me and hopefully the table will be repaired.

  • Ed Z.

    The from VA to TN went well. Doug wilds was an excellent (?) job at both ends with the following exceptions. He was tasked with hookup of the washer and dryer. He sent me our for some parts, which I promptly got and returned . It was as if he washed his hands of the task, went out to his truck with his two helpers who helped him back his truck down the lane. If I made a mistake, perhaps it was giving him his "tip" before he started to return his truck to Roanoke, VA.

    Assessor was professional and amicable. Packers were efficient and personable. Overall, a good move experience. There were a few items that were damaged in the move, which is why it wasn't a great experience.

  • Tammy S.
    Bedford, VA
    to Springfield, IL
    September 18, 2017

    Movers were quick and efficient. I was a little alarmed to review my inventory and see some of the descriptions made it seem like it was in terrible condition, especially a brand new loveseat. The driver explained at the destination that anything used or out of the packaging was considered soiled. They did a great job protecting the furniture so that it would arrive without damage. In hindsight, I might not use wardrobe boxes - the empty spaces in the corners, does not hold up well and gets crushed.

    Overall United reps were polite, skilled and helpful. Overall they did a good job but we did encounter issues that needed to be overcome and which caused delays. The smaller second truck could not access the road to the house and we had to wait for lumber to help the truck to clear the road properly.

    I have moved twice using united and they made overall moving experience hassle free, starting from assessment, estimate, pickup & loading and delivery. This time it took one day delay in delivery and could not get the delivery time in advance. But overall moving experience is very good.
