Experience is everything

I have worked with fairly new moving companies before but they always fell short. When the time came to move again, I decided to hire Metro van lines. They have a great reputation and have been in the business for a long time. It turned out to be a great decision. They worked with absolute precision. The movers were very well aware of any kind of problem that could arise and they came prepared. My belongings were carefully transported and I didn’t have to do a thing! It really is better to hire experienced movers even if it costs a little extra.

Answer for all moving issues

I do not expect much from movers given how bad they had been in the past. My last move, however, was different. Metro van lines was nothing like I hoped them to be. They excelled in every aspect of relocation. They quoted inexpensively, the movers arrived on time and none of my valuables suffered any damage while being moved. This kind of performance is so rare in this business. I have to give it to them for being honest. They charged me nothing extra in the end. Safe delivery of all your valuables at a reasonable cost is all you ever ask for from a moving company!

I hired the right company

I was torn among three moving companies when I was moving. All three of them quoted similarly and promised perfection. My brother in law suggested that I go for Metro van lines. So I went for them. It really was a good choice. They made my move so easy. They had to travel a long way but it wasn’t the distance that bothered me. I am really attached to the things I own. So I didn’t want them to be damaged. The movers, who maintained their timing very well, took amazing care of my possessions.

We always hire these guys

I do not like settling down. Moving becomes quite necessary at times and Metro van lines is always my go-to moving company. I do like to take the few things I own with me when I move. This company has worked with me quite a few times so they know how to move my things. The men always arrive right on time and get to work immediately. They pack up everything very carefully. They use enough tapes and newspapers to make sure nothing would break on the way. The furniture receives the same care. Everything is loaded onto the trucks as soon as possible. I always tip the movers well and if you are a frequent mover, I suggest you do it too.

Amazing crew

When I did my research, I found that some people gave Metro van lines some really bad reviews. But, on the other hand, they gave me the lowest quote. I’m happy to report that my review is a good one. They handled my move perfectly. Their quote was absolutely unbeatable. That actually made me a little worried at first. But when the movers arrived, on time that is, all my fear went away. They packed everything with great care. They used adequate amount of packing materials to safeguard my breakables. I was given a week long window for delivery but they called me on day 03 to notify me that the van was on the way. Everything was delivered in pristine condition. I seriously don’t understand why anyone would write such lies about this amazing company.

My belongings reached safely

Metro van lines was the moving company that helped us with the move last month. Actually, I should say that they moved us and we didn’t really help. I didn’t even have to give any instructions to the movers. They knew exactly how to do the job and they did it perfectly. Not even a glass was broken on the way. They even unpacked everything and put them in the right rooms. My wife and I just drove ourselves to our new house and found them already waiting in front of our new house. I cannot praise these guys enough.

They made no mistakes

Mistakes are bound to happen when you are moving across the country with all your belongings. However, if the people in question are the movers from metro van lines - there is no room for mistakes. The movers showed up at my place right on the time they promised. They wasted no time while packing and loading my belongings. Everything went just so smoothly. They delivered right on time as well and all my belongings traveled excellently. Not one single thing was even slightly damaged. These guys are just machines!

Low-priced but experienced

Metro van lines was my first choice because my best friend used them before. I was moving for my new job. Having to leave the place you grew up in is emotionally draining, but nothing to do. They provided us with a binding estimate and everything they promised was in fact true. The movers sent from the company were strong, experienced and efficient. They finished the pickup process within such a short time. All in way they did a great job and get 5 stars from us.

No fuss moving experience

This review was due four months ago to be honest. I hired Metro van lines to move my stuffs in August last year. They quoted me very fairly and promised to take good care of my stuffs. The crew of four men, led by a very experienced foreman, arrived right on time. Their punctuality really impressed me. The men were so energetic and efficient. They packed up everything so quickly. The whole process was done in such a short amount of time. I promised the foreman that I would write them a review and here it is. They charged me very reasonably and delivered all my goods in pristine condition.

Trustworthy reliable professionals

We hired Metro van lines to pack and move our household to our new apartment on the other side of the country. It was a cross-country move and so the risks were way higher. Four movers with impeccable preparations were sent from the company on the moving day. They arrived on time and took care with all our items and asked us if they had any questions. We moved our stuff into storage at my mother in laws house and they were accommodating with that as well since we weren’t actually there to receive them. And overall it was a great experience. I will be hiring them again soon to move the stored items to our new place and wouldn’t worry about giving them the task.

Skillfully relocated

Metro van lines were efficient and skillful during my last move. They arrived 30 minutes ahead of schedule which always a good surprise. They men worked so well together methodically moving everything from my house. The whole process was completed in a record time and I was glad to be out of the house before lunchtime. They delivered on time as well and nothing was missing. These men put on a show of how easily you can possibly move a household to another state in record time with no damage. I was so glad that I hired them and not any other moving company.

Reasonably priced service

Metro van lines didn’t even need my instructions to handle my last move. That is how professional and trustworthy they are. This company is just amazing. Their rates are just top-notch and always reasonable. The men they employ are very experienced and skilled. When I received everything, all my things were intact, not even a new scratch on any of them. I really don’t think another moving company exists that can show this level of reliability. I just have to recommend them.

Awesome as expected

I am a very choosy person. I always look for the best one even when it comes to small things. Recently I decided to move into my new apartment. I searched for many moving companies. At last I made the decision to hire Metro van lines. They were very time efficient. They handled all of my house chores nicely. They wrapped and packed all the things nicely. All my stuffs turned up at my new house right on schedule. I didn’t see such good service till now. There are many movers out there but trust me these guys are undoubtedly the best.

Respectable moving company

The movers from Metro van lines were remarkable. From the way they worked you can tell that they are highly trained and experienced. After working with them, I knew that courtesy and loyalty isn’t lost in the world from the excellent services rendered by these guys. These boys wrapped up all my things within hours and left with the two vans they brought filled with all my valuables. I was worried for delivery but they made the schedule with time to spare. I am glad to report that all my things survived the trip without a single dent on any of the things. It was an extraordinary effort from these guys!

Very efficient

When it comes to moving companies, all you need to know how good the movers are. I just want to tell you how amazing Metro van lines was during my last move. Their movers’ packing skills were amazing and they were very prompt. They followed my every instruction and never complained or asked for a break. None of my valuables suffered any damages. I have to commend them for being so efficient and hardworking. I have to mention how affordable they really were. I was given a low quote to begin with. The final bill was even lower. This company is just amazingly cost, time and energy efficient.

Very reliable

Metro van lines is possibly the most reliable moving company out there. The movers arrived right on time on the moving day. They were very experienced. I requested for four movers because I wanted to get out of my old house as fast as possible. Having four movers meant the packing was done a lot quicker and the whole process were completed very fast. They packed everything so well that none of my things suffered any damages on the way. They maintained their schedules perfectly. I can totally rely on these guys.

Impressive moving experience

The movers who moved my belongings were excellent. Metro van lines definitely employs the best movers money can hire. They were easy to get a hold of and they returned my calls. I got everything in the boxes, neatly packed and nothing was broken. Working with these guys was such a treat. They were so efficient in every aspect of the move- from the time efficient pickup to the quick delivery. I was very impressed with how quickly they moved and how courteous they were. In days when most companies are out there to rip you off, these guys were breaths of fresh air!

Nothing like others

It is so difficult to find a reliable moving company. Most companies make it very hard to have any kind of faith on this business. They lie, change their prices after the move and send movers who have no experience in this job. But I found a company that is an exception. It’s Metro van lines - this company has to be the only exception in this market. I can’t describe with my words how efficient they were! I was wrong to think that everyone with completely positive reviews is a cheat. They handled everything with their professionalism. The movers maintained their timings, showed great care while packing my things and made sure each piece was delivered in great condition. They knew what they were doing. They didn’t add any extra charges in the final bill.

I hired Metro van lines because they were highly recommended by so many people. They were worth every bit of it and provided me with a drama-free move. They made my move so simple. I just called them, got a quote and provided the details. They took care of everything else. The movers arrived early. They packed everything carefully and loaded them to the truck. They delivered every piece of my belongings in pristine condition. This company is undoubtedly the best in this business.

Cheap but reliable

I have relocated on my own before. Trust me, it was a nightmare. This time I decided to hire Metro van lines for the job. They showed me what it means to have professionals helping you with the move. The movers were so efficient. They arrived on time, packed everything, loaded them onto the van and set off. The whole thing happened so fast. They were so friendly while being absolutely professional. My valuables were moved to my new house without any damages. The final bill was shocking. It was just too cheap. I never thought moving companies would be that cheap while being so efficient. I highly recommend them!

They were just awesome

First, I couldn't make up my mind about which company to choose, but after speaking to the manager at Metro van lines, he convinced me that these guys know what they are doing. After a small negotiation process I was good to go and everything went really well and gladly easy as pie. Even though I wasn't home during their pick up, everything was really professionally done according to my wife who was in charge. They made the delivery on time and nothing went missing. Their workmanship is really praiseworthy.

I really liked how the guys from Metro van lines cared for my things. They were very respectful and they moved it very gently and carefully. I am glad to say that they broke nothing! It was a damage free move! I got a good deal from their sales rep too. Their sales rep also explained professionally how to pack my things so that I can avoid damages. He was very kind and helpful. The moving part was done just fine. There were no delays and they completed the task within the given time. I had a pretty good move with them.

Impressive service

Impressive service indeed! Metro van lines did a magnificent job with my long distance move recently. There were in and out very quickly. They moved my belongings with super care! And they also moved everything in record time! A few things which they did were not expected at all. They repacked a couple of things so that everything was safe. They helped with the unpacking and staging part at the other end. And they also took out the garbage! They did all that free of cost! They did not charge me for any of that! This moving company is amazing! I highly recommend them to all.

Full house move

We are a big family and obviously that means hell lot of stuff. We needed to do a long distance move and chose Metro van lines because they had good reviews and reasonable pricing. I spoke with their sales rep and he was very convincing and generous. A very efficient set of people came on the moving day and they moved everything very nicely. We had many things and many valuables! Every single item was taken care of and nothing was lost during this journey. We were relocated in a very short period of time too. Everything went very well! We did have a good move with this company!
