I was shifting my base from San Fancisco, CA to New Castle, Delaware due to professional obligations. The first thought of shifting was horrifying. I searched the net and stumbled into LightningVanLines moving services. Their 24x7 friendly customer service were always helpful. The guys who really made the move were very cooperating and well matured. They were very professional made the inter-state move look absolutely simple. None of my valuables were broken and were in one-piece. All of my bad thoughts about moving were gone as LVL has given me the best service that a moving company can provide.

Moving to me was never a pleasant experience but Lightning Van lines had totally proved me wrong and changed my perception. They did a great job in moving our luggage to our new residence in Nevada. Right from the beginning to end, they offered uncompromising service, considering every minute detail. The movers were indeed cool and did everything to keep up their promise. Hats off to Lightning Van guys who made everything possible right on time.

I hired Lightning to get me out of my apartment . The movers were excellent!!! They were professional, responsive, efficient, punctual, friendly and the price was OK for me. The team was able to move furniture from two locations into my apartment. They were extremely knowledgeable. And more importantly, they are very knowledgeable about how to care for and protect furniture. Additionally very attentive to the small details and I felt totally confident in their services. I recommended them to my neighbors.

If someone is thinking to shift from California to any other state in USA within a very minimum amount of budget then Lightning Van Lines is the best choice in my point of view. The peoples were very supportive and on their toes during the moving phase. They simply made my move problem free and synchronized. This eventually expedited my moving process. I have no whine against them.

I will always cherish my memories associated with Lightning Van Lines and I would always recommend people to Lightning Van Lines.

Hiring a moving company is simply a tough task to do. I am saying this from my past experience. It was a nightmare for me. All these things were so scattered that it took few days to arrange all in my own way. That’s why I was a bit scared of choosing appropriate moving company. But at last I heard about Lightning Van Lines as I was supposed to move from California to Delaware. They completed the job on time, at the price quoted with professionalism and positive attitude. They also helped me get out of the emotional attachment of California.

I highly recommend their service to everybody who is eying for shifting from California to any other State as Lightning Vanlines, in my opinion the best moving company in California.

It was a big deal to move from California to Colorado. I searched few movers over the internet and interacted with them. But trust me most of them were not satisfactory. I also tried to gather information about those so-called reputed moving companies. Then I received information about Lightning Van Lines from one of my relative. I called them up and interacted with them. They were simply great while attending my call.

After a long discussion, I hired them for the shifting and believe me they stood tall on my expectation level. They kept every word that they had promised over the phone. Their peoples were very much professional and they also did not charge a single penny extra although they shifted few boxes extra.

If I ever have to make another move then I will definitely avail their service. I must appreciate their service and recommend their service to everybody who is looking for a good moving company.

I am writing to express my sincerest appreciation for the assistance that Lightning Vanlines recently gave us with our move. I have never encountered a more professional, capable and warm group of young men. Without their help, decorating assistance and all around moral support, this move would have been overwhelming for us. I would like to thank Mike who made the arrangements for this move so easy for us.
Max and his crew were extremely kind and helpful to us and extremely patient. We very much appreciated his camaraderie during the project. We look forward to doing business with you again.

I'm writing about my wonderful moving experience with Lightning Van Lines. One thing I liked about this company is their rating in BBB and in-home estimate service. I called them for in-home estimate and they were here on time. I was delighted to see their in-home estimate process, which made me feel that they were the most reliable and honest moving company in this planet. I contracted them. They were very careful while handling all my items and made sure they don't damage my walls and floor. They did not loose a single item during the transit. Additionally they were the ones to call me and give the moving updates instead of myself calling them.

They were on time, efficient, careful, friendly and quick. Everything you could possibly want in a moving company. They really took the stress out of moving. I highly recommend them to anyone!!!!

This company moved me recently to my new home in Los Angeles. They were not the cheapest price, but i've had my share of bad moves so I figured i'd try these guys. The movers were the hardest working moving crew i have ever seen. They didn't stop once during loading until the truck was full top to bottom. The foreman was incredibly friendly and good natured. They were obviously very experienced, I watched them wrapping and handling some of my larger more fragile items and they didn't miss a step. They made it look easy, which is a feat since you don't hire movers if it's easy. I really enjoyed talking to the customer service person, they were friendly and knowledgeable about my requirements and they carry a very large insurance policy which allowed them into my highrise building. The operations personnel were also very knowledgable and professional. Overall this was an excellent move with professional and caring movers. Highly recommended !!!

7 moving companies contacted me and after online investigation, discovered 3 of them to be really great to move with. I further narrowed my search depending on experience and years of establishment. After comparing the 3 companies then picked Lightning Van Lines. they came to my house and packed the stuff and did not raise their quote. The delivery took 4 days and everything was just as they were. Would recommend Lightning Van Lines.

This is just a small note to inform people about the fantastic services provided by Lightning Van Lines. When I booked the service from Lightning for my move to Colorado, I promised my sales rep that if they are able to satisfy me through their service, then I will post a review for them. Hence, I'm honoring my end of bargain. The move was really good.

Appreciate their help From the various resources over the Internet I selected Lightning Van Lines. There isn't any specific reason for choosing them. Called at the number in their website and found a live person to answer it (I called at night and most of the companies ignored my call). Felt good and booked their service after some package information. Was little apprehensive about the ultimate bill but then there was nothing to worry. At last I received a bill that was expected. DO NOT HAVE ANYTHING TO COMPLAIN. The movers did their job honestly and I appreciate it. Thank you, will come to you soon.

This is Jayme Kayla. I booked the service from Lightning Van Lines. A smart moving crew helped me relocate from New Jersey to Florida. the best part was when i was waiting for the belongings. Understanding the fact that i was tensed and anxious about my belongings, they kept me calling and updating about the advancement of the tuck loaded with my belongings. They new my new home address and probably they were familiar with the place (thats what seemed to me from their conversation and instructions). The driver called me and asked me to come to the delivery point when he was just a stones throw away from it. They all were very friendly and understanding. RECOMMENDED!!!!!!

I moved with Lightning Van Lines with my family. The movers were at my door by 10.00am and completed packing and loading within 4 hours. They were all neatly dressed, professional look. Did not waste time. Went for lunch after they were done with packing and loading. And were back within 13 minutes. We followed them to the weighing station and found that we were over the quoted lbs. I was little apprehensive about the final bill and to my surprise they have settled the matter within the quoted price. Thanks a lot Lightning Van Lines.

It was an emergency move due to official requirement. I would be charged a full months rent after Monday. I called Lightning Van Lines at 3.40 on Friday and asked for help. They asked for another day, they informed that Monday has no space But Tuesday surely they will get me going. The move coordinator gave me an idea and we worked accordingly. The company picked up my stuff from home in the evening and offered storage facility at a discounted rate. I spent the night in a friends house. We left the next day early morning and everything went well. It was great.

I moved with my family from from Hoboken to Miami. My company agreed to pay maximum $7000 for the complete move. I discussed my problem and requirement with Lightning Van Lines and they promised to get everything done within the limit. It was a full service move. We were not good with packing and loading, therefore thought it would be wise to let the professional handle it. Packing was approximately $500. And the complete door to door moving service cost us something around $5100. That was amazing!

We moved with Lightning Van Lines. Initially we though of getting service for transporting our belongings only. Checked some sites for packing help and felt that we could do them by ourselves confidently. Actually, it is easier said than done. Was in a mess. No luck in packing. Ultimately we hired them for a full service move. After that there was no problem.

I’m very impressed with my sales representative. He explained me everything about how the move would be conducted. He also explained me how to pack my belongings in order to avoid the additional charges. He gave an estimate based on some weight factor and that was approximately accurate. The movers, who actually came to help me on the final day, did an exceptional job packing my furniture safely. I would definitely recommend this company again.

She also called me when the movers were supposed to arrive to check if they reached on time. I was impressed with her dedication. She was really concerned about our move. The movers were fast and experienced, so did not have much problem with them. The move was finally over and I was happy with their service. Thanks for everything.

I had recently been required to relocate not only my home, but also my design studio. I had contacted many companies and had a few people even come to my place to give me prices. This company was so much more professional with their presentation and the services they offered I was compelled to choose them. I was a bit nervous moving my "life" across country, both my personal goods as well as my business items. I could not have been happier when the guys arrived.thy were uniformed careful and quick. My nerves were calmed. I waited in anticipation in NY for about 6 days I then received a all telling me my delivery was scheduled for the next day. When the crew arrived they went straight to work setting up my Studio and placing my boxes in the proper rooms. The price was exactky what we agreed on and I would recommend them to anyone, and will use them again if i ever move again

First and for most, I hired this company because the my sales rep was so friendly to me. I must of looked around like crazy and finally I found them to have the best customer service. The women over the phone really helped me out a lot with all my questions and concerns. I felt really positive that I was going to receive the same service the day of the move but boy was I wrong. When the movers first got there I could not believe there lack of professionalism. The supervisor of the movers was smoking right in front of me and my 3 year old daughter. How rude.. Than as he was moving my furniture I asked him to please wrap it in blanket which I was told were going to be free due to the fact that I did not want him to penetrate my upholstery with his cigarette smoke. Mind you that I asked him as pleasant as possible without trying to embarrass or insult him. He reacted in a way that frightened me. Than later he re packed my PACKED BOXES with tape.... WHAT! I asked him why he did that and he rudely answered that he had to unless I wanted for them to go inside the truck. Had I known what headache I would incur during this move, I for sure would of NEVER booked them. I'm sorry but the sales rep was really pleasant but she did not inform me of all the expensive packing fees and crew members. I do not blame her but they should of given me a heads up regarding the packing. They charged me almost 300 dollars for tape and small boxes which I know cost like 3 bucks each at home depot but OH NO DONT WORRY MRS ALRIGHT WE WILL TAKE CARE OF ALL YOUR MOVING NEEDS.... Stay away from them they too will get you...... Next time I'm better off hiring some laborers at the local home depot and renting a haul.

Awful move. They movers were lazy. My partner and I carried more things out to the truck then they did. And at least we didn't break anything. They were sexist and rude, too, constantly making comments. Hey guys--I know I'm gay, you don't have to tell me that! When I complained to the office, they just laughed at me.

Always moves are considered to be serious but not all of them are of the same kind. Funny things happened to us as we were planning our move. We reserved space with another company that was supposed to pick us up last Friday or Saturday. Come Saturday we never received a call from that company despite leaving 100 messages. That's when we got extremely nervous and started to panic. We found this site and Lightning Van Lines on it. We went to the site and received calls from a few companies and the one we chose actually picked us up the same day. They really did a great job so thank you for your help.

Lightning Van Lines moved me to my new house. There were several things required to be done but my movers took care of every single thing. They also provided several important tips that really helped me for getting little prepared for my move. This was my first move and was little worried; I heard several warning from my friends, hence that really scared me. But now as my move is over, I can tell you that Lightning Van Lines did a great job. They were patient enough to explain me everything. They were responsible and smart with their work. Everybody in the crew was experienced and trained, their work demonstrated so. I do recommend them.
