My move took place yesterday. After browsing a whole internet I hired them to move. I got a quote from 4-5 companies but their prices varies. They were providing me limited service but they did sent me a detailed quote with everything included. On the day of move they showed up on time and did a fantastic job with the move. Reached new placed and everything is settled. 5 tars to them.

I moved at a very difficult time in my life. The team that was sent to my home was professional, courteous and very efficient! They arrived on time and packed up my 2300 sq. foot home in record time. They arrived in Texas at the exact day and time scheduled and were in constant contact with me start to finish. I would not recommend anyone else for a long distance move.Start state: IllinoisEnd state: Kansas

I used Charter van lines about 2 months ago and it’s only fair that I write a review for them. I got awesome movers- I had them come and pack me up and they did a great job. They moved all my pieces within the decided time-frame. They made sure nothing was damaged on the way. We are likely moving soon again and obviously we will hire these guys for that move.Start state: FloridaEnd state: Illinois

We hired Charter van lines and do not regret that decision at all. I would recommend these guys to anyone. Not only were they prompt and careful, but they even came in under the estimate. Their pricings were very affordable. I moved without any issues and paid a very stingy amount for it. Thanks guys!Start state: FloridaEnd state: Indiana

Charter van lines was easily accessible during entire process via email or phone. Their manager thoroughly explained how the moving would go and gave me the estimate based the information I gave. The movers were on time and got to work quickly. The movers were great at the packing service- all the boxes were marked and easily found upon arrival. Everything arrived in the same condition as it left. I had a really move with these guys.Start state: FloridaEnd state: Illinois

The crew sent from Charter van lines was very professional. You can trust me on that. When I hired them a couple of months back, they serviced me nothing short of perfection. The relocation services were great. I enjoyed every single minute of the relocation.

Charter van lines was highly recommended by many people so I hired them. I don’t know what I was expecting from them but they were very efficient. Relocation is difficult but the movers I got took on some of those difficulties and made me stress-free. They arrived right on time and were very well equipped. They packed up everything very quickly and efficiently. Their skills and experience showed in every single step. They carried everything out of my house and loaded them to the vans. I received the delivery on the first due date which was totally unexpected. Everything was in good condition and I was totally relieved.Start state: FloridaEnd state: Louisiana

I was definitely weighing my options before settling on one moving company. Charter van lines was one of the companies I was talking to. These guys quoted low and no extra was added to the final bill. Their movers were fantastic. They finished packing and loading everything really quickly. They maintained their timing during both arrival and delivery. They unpacked everything at our new house and helped us assemble furniture. This move turned out to be super easy just because of these guys. I will definitely hire them again.Start state: FloridaEnd state: Idaho

I have heard some pretty amazing things about Charter van lines and so I decided to give them the responsibility of conducting my move. I contacted them and they gave me a very good hourly quote. The men arrived right on time on the moving day. The 4 men were very skilled and experienced. My entire apartment was wrapped, packed, carried and loaded onto two vans very quickly by them. I think this kind of efficiency save people a lot of money with these moving companies. These movers were so experienced that I never even had a thing to worry about.Start state: FloridaEnd state: Alabama

Making a selection on a moving company is not as easy as you think it is. So many different companies call and most of them say the same thing for the most part so it’s hard to decipher which is the best. The rates we got were pretty much all in line with each other so we went and looked at reputation and reviews. We found that gateway moving and storage had the most positive feedback and suggested Referrals so we went with them. They did a great job getting the furniture out of the house unloading the truck and just as good for delivery. Everything came on time and we didn’t have any problems.Start state: FloridaEnd state: Illinois

The movers from Charter van lines absolutely blew me away during my last move. I really didn’t know what to expect from them. But they came through in every aspect. Their quote was as good as any other top moving companies and they were providing a four-men-crew. The movers arrived exactly on scheduled time and got to work immediately. I have a lot of valuables and some of the pieces I own are extremely difficult to pack. But the men were super creative in packing everything. They finished the pack-load process very quickly in my opinion. They made the delivery on time to my new house and everything was undamaged. I highly recommend this company.Start state: FloridaEnd state: Illinois

I recently got some bad news in the family and decided to go and live close to them. I hired Charter van lines to help me with the move because a friend of mine assured me that they’re the best. I had built up quite a collection of furniture and other things over the years. The men who arrived on time to pack everything were very careful with all my valuables. They thoroughly took inventory always double checking with me. They carried all my beloved furniture out of the house. After hours of packing and loading, my valuables were gone in 3 vans. They delivered two days later and I found everything intact. I can’t help but be grateful to them.Start state: FloridaEnd state: Illinois

My wife and I had to do a major relocation. Due to my work I had to move while she settled things at home. I wanted to hire movers that she would feel comfortable with when it was time for her to join me. Charter van lines was a great choice for us. Their guys were respectful all the way through.

I spent more time researching on moving companies than the actual move. It did pay off though. I ended hiring charter van lines. When I called the company, they fixed me a slot on the moving day and gave me a quote that was more than reasonable. Their movers arrived on time to my apartment and they were all very well equipped.

I know talent is something you may think movers don't require. But trust me, muscles can only help you lift furniture but movers need talent, training and experience for doing a good job. Charter van lines were just that! I believe they're handpicked by the company to increase customer satisfaction. They were outstanding during my last move. Their attention to detail is praiseworthy.

It was a very short distance the movers had to cover to move my belongings. Quite frankly I don’t even own a lot of furniture. But I still had to hire Charter van lines simply because I didn’t want to go through the hassle of hiring a van and carrying things. The young and strong men took almost no time to pack up my 2-bedroom apartment. I honestly wasn’t expecting them to be that fast. But, I will definitely hire this company for a whole different reason. They managed to deliver my belongings in one piece without charging me a ridiculous amount.

In the days when efficiency is obsolete and making money is what everyone cares about, Charter van lines was a breath of fresh air. They took such great care of me and my belongings during my last move. I couldn’t afford to pay too much so they gave me a budget deal where I did the packing and they just moved my things. I was happy with that. The movers showed up on time and we weren’t ready just then. They waited for us to finish for an hour. They didn’t even charge us for it. These guys are so considerate and helpful. My valuables were safely transported on time.

I called Charter van lines and asked them to send a crew as soon as they could. I was at risk of becoming homeless but it's not really about that! The movers made this hasty move very simple. They were all very professional and easy to work with. They systematically packed everything into boxes and then loaded the van. The delivery was made a week later after I had found a house with all my valuables intact inside the van. This move had disaster written all over them.

My wife and I have relocated a few times before. We didn’t feel the need to hire a moving company because we don’t really have a lot of belongings. But our family grew with time. So this time we just had to hire Charter van lines to move our valuables. I have to say, it was the most stress-free experience of my life. This company is so professional. They sent their movers sharp on time and every man was very efficient. They took merely any time to pack up all our belongings and then started carrying them down to the vans. Believe me when I tell you, everything was spot on. None of my furniture or other belongings suffered any damages on the way and the delivery was made on time.

I asked around and many people suggested that I hire Charter van lines. The man on the phone, when I called them, was very friendly and assured me that they would take good care of my things. He did sound quite sincere and so I hired them on a very reasonable quote. Their men turned out to be just amazing. They worked tirelessly in my old house packing everything very carefully.

I know that many moving companies provide very capable movers. But not everyone can afford to pay such substantial amounts. That is where Charter van lines reaches out to much bigger demographics. They charged fairly low for the amazing service they provided. All my valuables were safely and timely moved to my new house. I was very impressed by the movers as they took such great care of my belongings. They didn’t charge anything extra and I am a happy mover.

When I hire anyone to do jobs that involve handling my valuable things, I expect nothing short of perfection. Perfection or not, men from Charter van lines were utterly professional during my move. Their packing skills impressed me the most. All the men were very well organized, taking half the time it would take any other mover to finish all the packing and loading. I can't call them perfect because they did manage to damage a rug of mine but it may have been a result of pressure from my couch and not something done by them.

My family is quite tired of moving to new places. This, hopefully, was our last move. I hired Charter van lines because last time we tried to move on our own and it was a disaster. They sent over 3 men who were all very well trained and extremely helpful. They didn’t cause any damage, not even a scratch, to my furniture. I wasn’t really expecting them to be that professional given how low their quote was. But they really surprised me. I think it’s much more convenient to just hire a moving company who knows how to this job than trying to do it on your own. It was a good lesson learnt and I highly recommend this company.Move cost: $4100Start state: FloridaEnd state: Kentucky

I love people who put best to what they do. The best I give back to such personalities is the space and time to enable them work best. I remember well the dedication Charter van lines gave to me during the relocation process. At first, I did not think it would be so easy to them since I had very many items in my house.

Charter van lines has the nerves of steel. I was a terrible client to them. I called them 10 times over one week just to make sure that they have an available slot for me on my desired date. They never seemed bothered with my burgeoning queries. The crew of four men arrived right on time and they were all very experienced. The foreman led the team to great efficiency. They were just amazing at packing everything. They carried my furniture very delicately to their vans. These guys made my move look so easy. I was a manic man when my valuables were on the way.

Charter van lines is such an amazing moving company and I can vouch for that. They took such great care of my valuables while moving them.

Having to move halfway across the country is no easy thing. So, naturally, I was worried how my things were going to travel this long distance. I have consulted many friends who relocate frequently and most of them advised me to hire Charter van lines. When I called the company, the guy on the phone seemed very friendly and well informed. He fixed me a slot on the moving day and gave me a rational estimate. Their movers arrived on time to my apartment and they were all very well equipped. They efficiently packed all my stuff. Even the corners of my furniture were packed with cardboard. They gave me a week long window for the delivery but thankfully the delivery was made in the first quarter of that window. All my things traveled without suffering any damage. They billed me exactly the amount they quoted and I was so happy.Move cost: $4300Start state: GeorgiaEnd state: Kentucky

No one on this earth can possibly understand your attachment to the things you bought with your hard earned money. The movers don’t even understand which paper could be useful, let alone packing with care. Since the moment the men from Charter van lines arrived, they were very polite and friendly. Their work was very efficient and they wasted no time while packing and loading all my belongings. By the time the men had left with my belongings, I was sure that my valuables were safe in their hands. They really did deliver everything unbroken and undamaged.

Relocating during the Easter is a trauma in itself. Although I had been contacting the moving companies for months, no one could find me a vacant slot. My apartment was already rented out and if I couldn’t find a moving company, I would have become homeless. After calling so many companies, finally charter van lines called me back and gave me a very early morning slot. I’m not an early riser but I took the slot immediately. Their men arrived right on the scheduled time, 7:30 am. I hadn’t packed anything the night before. Anyways, the movers took on the job of packing literally everything. Thank god for these guys because I had too mean of a hangover to help them with anything at all. They finished with all the packing and loading quickly and I was very impressed with their quality of work. Two days later, my things turned up in perfect condition.

If you are planning your move and are considering using Charter Van Lines, there are a few things you should know.
1. They are ONLY a brokerage company and are not the ones delivering your stuff.
2. They will give you a low quote to get your deposit and when you get your call to confirm your shipment the price will double. We were quoted 2200 for our move which included 35 boxes. We removed the boxes completely and our order still increased by 150 dollars. Why, because they did not record the measurements of the furniture correctly.
3. They assure us that our furniture would be there with in 5 -10 days. However when we called to see when it would be delivered after the 5 days were up, we were informed that they had 35 business days to deliver our stuff.
They say they are a 5 star company but they are not.
Do not use this company. You've been warned.Move cost: $2500Start state: MissouriEnd state: Florida

Charter van lines is a moving company worth hiring. This company sent over their movers on time and all the men were very energetic.

They have been very well trained and I could tell that given how professionally they behaved. They were done with my 3-bedroom house in just 2 hours.

While all my things arrive in tact the experience was horrible. I needed my stuff to arrive on a certain date and at no point did they tell us that it could take up to a week for my stuff to arrive PAST the date we had originally said I needed the stuff to arrive. Customer service representatives were mean and bitchy when I called to talk to them which I did several times during the whole process. While it was in the contact that we signed at no point in the process or during the numerous conversations did they mention that in some cases it could take UP TO 20 DAYS for my stuff to arrive due to the distance. I am not faulting them for what is in the contract but I would have been able to plan better if they had just been upfront at the beginning about that the time period I wanted was unreasonable. They left a lot of things unmentioned and then got mean and snippy when I asked about why these things where not mentioned beforehand. I would not use them again and I would suggest you don't either.Start state: North CarolinaEnd state: Ohio

Having to leave your home where you grew up, feel in love and raised your kids is not easy. But when your employer of 35 years decides to lay you off suddenly, you really don’t have a choice. But at least there is a moving company who made sure I move the least painstakingly way. Charter van lines performed an excellent job at moving all my belongings. I'm saying that because many of my friends have had terrible experiences with other movers. As if the movers stopped caring about us just like the economy. At least I have all my belongings intact while I'm starting to make a new life. This moving company has taken very good care of us and our stuffs, that also at a very low price.

We selected Charter Van lines bc it had reasonable reviews, but we had an absolutely terrible experience. I should note that the subcontractors they actually sent were ok, but Charter underquoted the job by over $3K and once the subcontractors showed up, they said they wouldn't take our things unless we paid more money. That is 50% over the quote. We had also paid for packing services over two days, however, they only packed on the first day and toldus we'd have to pay even more to get the rest of our things packed--so we ended up paying over $9K and had to spend a half day packing last minute.
Also, many of our things arrived damaged and a lot of our art wasn't packed as promised.
We reached out to Charter multiple times for explanations of the fees (they will NOT release your stuff to you unless you pay them the outstanding amount--so basically extortion), and to request payment for our damaged items (including one box that never arrived), and did not hear back from them. We also filed a claim with BBB to which Charter has not responded. Do not use them. We did a full inventory and then they claimed things like "heavier than anticipated." A terrible experience when you HAVE to move and can't research other options last minute. This was a very expensive lesson to learn.Move cost: $9300Start state: TexasEnd state: Maryland

I have hired Charter van lines several times now and I can honestly say that they are very reliable. Many movers often complain that moving companies had lost their valuables. But this company is yet to lose any of my boxes. In fact, they do the job so efficiently that my belongings don’t even suffer the slightest of damage. The crews I worked with have always been friendly and helpful. Their customer service always checks up on me even after the move is completed. That really is a nice touch. One thing to note: even if the movers finish the work early, you have to pay them for the whole hour. I think that’s a small price to pay for the amazing job they do.Move cost: $1970Start state: FloridaEnd state: Kentucky

They were so nice and kind and took such great care of our things! They were also super-fast -- it would have taken us over a day to take care of everything they did in just over a few hours! Thank you so much for making our move the easiest and least stressful move I've ever had. Now I can rest easy in our new apartment tonight! I'm so incredibly grateful. If you're moving interstate, go with these guys!Move cost: $2310Start state: FloridaEnd state: Indiana

A cheating company, they give very low quote and take deposit.On moving day , driver wont agree even for what it is in the contract.They say some stupid reasons that sofa is heavy,boxes are not clean.
They will leave us and go and don't even refund the money.
I reserved it and later heard from my friend that its a cheating company,immediately I asked for cancellation but they didn't and on moving day they charged $983 extra.Move cost: $2300Start state: North CarolinaEnd state: Ohio

This is a broker company, They have tie up with topratemoving.com.
Charter van lines is not responsible for any of your items damaged/missing. Even topratemoving.com also wont care about your words. I missed my bag which costs $3k with my valuable items. They brought a bag to me which was not belongs to me and when i refused to take that bag, they simply thrown that bag in trash near my building.Move cost: $5000Start state: IllinoisEnd state: Connecticut

STAY AWAY! THEY ARE NOT A MOVING COMPANY/VAN LINES. THEY ARE BROKERS!
This is the type of company we all heard about on the news.
I was dumb enough to believe them when I went to a moving quite website, they called me. Didn't realize (stupid) the site sold my number to 50 companies.
Their quote for moving me from TX to MA was $4500. I gave them a $950 "deposit". A few days later, I found out they were a scam. Called to cancel, they refused to refund my money. I disputed with my bank. Bank ended up siding with them because of the contract even though they scammed me.
This company doesn't own not 1 moving truck much less a van/18 wheeler.

Charter Van Lines underquoted my move by 30%, provided little documentation to justify the increased quote, and then I had 12/40 crushed boxes (due to stacking heavy items on top of light), water damaged cloth furniture (from a leaking trailer and torn heavy duty plastic wrap), and plenty of broken heavy duty plastic totes.
In a bright spot, Robert, the mover on the delivery, was an excellent and professional fellow who was level headed and did his due diligence for his company in documenting issues.
However, I would discourage others from using this van line due to everything - especially warehousing and trailer loading at warehousing - leading up until the delivery.Move cost: $3000Start state:End state:

Charter van lines helped me move to Oregon. It was difficult for me to find a trustworthy moving company, but after I did my research, they somehow stood out. They had plenty of positive reviews and testimonials so I called them immediately. They seemed professional and reliable during our first call, so I decided to go for them. To be honest, I was concerned if my valuable breakables would survive the trip. I was impressed when I realized that nothing was broken or lost throughout the process. They are the best movers I’ve ever met and I’ll be happy to move with them again!Move cost: $3200Start state:End state:

Charter van lines managed to accommodate my move although I had only a couple of weeks to move to Indiana for my new job. I got detailed instructions from the sales person so I knew exactly what to expect at any stage of the move.
I was referred to Charter van lines by my friend and according to his experience I knew they were an honest company I could trust with my belongings. The transition to a new state was an extremely demanding and stressful prospect and these amazing guys were a huge support. They managed to put my mind at ease with their professional and friendly approach.Move cost: $698Start state:End state:

I was very impressed with Charter Van lines. I decided to hire this company on such short notice. Although I was nervous, they really fulfilled my needs as a customer. They didn't break anything! That was such a fear of mine. I have already recommended this company to a friend.
They did everything up to par and was able to help me reserve the elevators on my delivery apartment. The customer service is way better than most that I have dealt with.Move cost: $3420Start state:End state:

Charter van lines inc helped me during my cross-country move from California to Jacksonville, FL. I had to move for my job and I didn’t have much time to organize everything. While I was researching moving companies, I noticed that Charter van lines stood out somehow. I went through their reviews which were mostly positive so I called them immediately. Their proactive approach and professionalism actually helped me decide. They were willing to handle everything on short notice and more importantly, I didn’t pay too much. A reasonable pricing combined with a quality service seems to be the best possible option when it comes to choosing a moving company.Move cost: $6000Start state:End state:

We used Charter van lines inc to move our family home to Calabasas, CA. I have to admit that researching moving companies was a painful and time-consuming experience. At some point the colleague of mine recommended Charter van lines. I called them immediately, our communication went smoothly and they answered right away all my questions and concerns. There was a slight issue with the truck, but they took care of it in no time. They took care of my items with the utmost care so I didn’t have to worry about anything. Eventually I paid exactly the same amount that was previously quoted.Move cost: $2650Start state:End state:

I’m so glad my friend referred me to Charter van lines. It turned out that hiring them was one of the best decisions ever. Great customer service and moving and packing skills make this company one of the greatest service providers I’ve ever dealt with. Everything was pretty straight-forward with them – transparent pricing, quality and timely service, great communication, friendly but professional approach.
Now all I can say is that I will recommend these guys with all my heart to all my coworkers, friends and relatives. I will use them again for sure if I have to move house again. They are definitely one of the best in the business.Move cost: $2000Start state:End state:

Charter Van Lines is a moving broker who contracted another (awful) company for my move out of NYC. I was told one thing on the phone when booking the move, and when the movers showed up the entire opposite was true and they tried to charge me $1k more. Of course I when I emailed Luke, who scheduled my move, to tell him they need to understand how the moving companies they are contracting to ACTUALLY work and bill, I got no response. They'll say anything to get you to sign that contract and then it's all out the window. What a shame. Your deposit goes right to Charter for doing nothing and falling off the face of the earth, and then you pay another moving company on top of that. Just be aware!Move cost: $1800Start state:End state:

Charter van lines movers helped me wrap some of the fragile and sentimental items I wasn’t sure how to pack. They ensured a painless move and I’m really grateful for it. I had a terrible experience with another company during my previous move and I even considered moving everything by myself this time. Luckily, a colleague of mine recommended Charter van lines saying that they were a great help for his family. He actually convinced me to give them a chance and at this point I’m glad that I did that. In order to keep me as a customer they even offered a free furniture disassembling service. Best movers ever!Move cost: $2500Start state:End state:

I had a bad experience with Charter Van Lines, trust the user experiences on Yelp even if their company has an A+ rating on BBB. It's incorrect.
They do not disclose a lot of information during the quoting process which resulted in me sleeping on the floor for 3 weeks without my belonging and the actual movers (some company contracted out of another state) overcharging me $200 the day of delivery, incorrectly too, but didn't find out until after the movers left.
DO NOT TRUST THE DELIVERY DATE/WINDOW THEY TELL YOU:
The real delivery times per the Bill of Lading Contract for the contracted movers (not Charter Van Lines)
Bill of Lading Terms and Conditions--Carrier will attempt delivery within 10 (Ten) days for delivery within 500 miles, 14 (Fourteen) days for delivery within 501-1000 mils and up to 21 (Twenty-one) days for delivery within 1001-1500 miles and within 30 (Thirty) days for delivery over 1500 miles from the FIRST available delivery date requested.
Which means, say the first available delivery date is the next day, no matter what. I went without my belongings for 3 weeks in an empty house. Had to sleep on the floor and put my guests visiting (who were excited to stay in my new place) up in a hotel. The broker agent will not care about responding or helping you after they've made their deal.
A flight of stairs equals 10 steps, if you have a landing in between each floor then the moving company will count that as 2 sets of stairs. So when I told the agent I was on the 3rd floor, he didn't ask if there was a landing and when I negotiated the price down by the amount of additional floors. What they really did was deduct the $60 fee from their own brokerage profit and left the 1 flight of stairs so the movers ended up recharging me for the additional and more stairs than expected at delivery. The contracted movers threatened me into paying the additional fees: "Either pay me an extra $200 or I leave all your things outside on the ground"
I paid $2,600 just to wait for my furniture for 3 weeks. And had to go buy basic living items during that time. If it's going to cost you about that much to hire local movers at each location to load and unload, a U-Haul and 2-3 days driving time. I would suggest you just move your own things, you'll save on the heart and headache.Move cost: $2600Start state:End state:

My husband and I used Charter Van Lines for our recent move to Boston. We decided to find our own moving company after reading some of the reviews of the movers his employer was willing to pay for. This company was great at communicating with us every step of the way. There was an issue with one of the drivers at the pickup site. He was rude and on his personal cell phone for the majority of the time he was at our house. We called and spoke to their customer service after the pickup was completed and they assured us this would be addressed as they do not tolerate this type of behavior. We later found out that mover was fired and they made sure the driver and the crew that arrived for delivery was A+. We did have a few items show up scratched which was easy to fix on our own so we did not file a claim for. I would rate them 4/5 stars.Move cost: $5400Start state:End state:

I moved with Charter Van Lines and it seemed at first that they did a good job. I wasn’t involved in the process because I had other personal issues to deal with and I decided to trust them with my belongings. They took care of packing and transporting my belongings and they seemed totally trustworthy.
When I was unpacking I noticed some unfamiliar items that weren’t mine. What’s more, those items were damaged and my movers claimed they had nothing to do with it. It was an unpleasant situation for everyone involved and I don’t think I will recommend this company to anyone.Move cost: $3100Start state:End state:

I had two weeks to set up a move since I waited until the last minute of my lease. The company got me set up and picked up within three days. Awesome. I have a small two-bedroom apartment. It was packed and loaded within two hours. The unfortunate part is that I am on the fourth floor. No close by elevators or stairs and the ‘easy’ access is a very long parking garage. It didn’t seem to faze the movers at all.Move cost: $5000Start state:End state:
