Moving Company Agents

Major brand van lines such as United, Allied, Bekins etc., are not just a single company. They are one company with hundreds of agents. So if someone tells you that they had a good moving experience from Allied Van Lines what they really mean is an Allied Van Lines agent. Most van line agents are independently owned and operated and the quality of service even between agents of the same van line can vary considerably. Although major brand van lines will claim to have a rigorous approval and quality control program it is the nature of the industry that there can still be significant differences between their agents. For example Bekins has been in the moving business since 1891 but the agent that you are using may only have been appointed last month. It is essential that you research the quality of the individual van lines agent no matter what the brand van line tells you.
