This was by far the best move I ever had. I cannot say enough great things about Lightning Van Lines. This company has a lot of integrity and is very flexible as well. I had to change my inventory list several times as well as my move date. They worked with me until I had it all straight, they were never impatient with me. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a professional moving company that you can count on without any worries.

Great moving company I must say. We were referred by a couple who just used their service in the city. We got a quote from the estimator who arrived on time to our apt and the quote was fair and inexpensive. They even gave us some free

I was a little skeptical to use Lightning Van Lines, however, I trusted the point of contact person, so I went with them. I had used a moving company in the past and they charged me a bunch of extra fees. Lightning offered me everything into the hourly rate and the crated my tv for free. The movers finished before the expected time and kept the move within my budget. I know that if I move again I will use Lightning!

Thieves!!! My 2 little boys accidentally forgot their wallets in their nightstands before our move from Ontario, California to Illinois. My boys had saved their money from their birthday's and Christmas to buy themselves a new video game system. My oldest had $312 and my youngest had $184. My boy's had stayed the night at their grandma's to not be in the way of the movers so my husband didn't think to remove the wallets. The movers were the only people at our house and they moved everything and held our property until it was delivered in Illinois. Immediately with the movers in our home I opened the nightstands because I was worried about my children's wallets and guess what my youngest son's Spiderman wallet was completely gone and my older son's wallet had only two crumpled up $1 dollar bills in it. I told the movers and they called their boss, Ethan. Ethan proceeded to tell me that we should have told them while it was in storage about the wallets. He also told me they have never had a problem with employee theft because they pay their employees well. I told him they have now! I explained that obviously we did not know at that point that someone had stolen it from within their company. He told me to contact customer service, which was a joke! After that the mover's did not want to unwrap items so they left my jewelry armoire wrapped up. The next day I opened it and guess what more stuff stolen. My husband was the only one home when they wrapped that up I was at the bank getting a cashiers check to pay the mover's. They stole my black hills gold class ring, a small gold chain with a 3 heart pink charm and a gold cross charm. I have filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau and so far all I have received is a response to the BBB by Lightning Van Lines that they are not responsible for stolen cash or jewelry during their moves. Outrageous! They also broke a framed piece of art, 3 antique(1800's) wine glasses, a candle holder and some martini glasses. I expected some breakage on a cross country move but never expected for my children to be victimized. I want them reimbursed. I really don't care about the rest. I have taught my children well and they worked hard to save their money. I don't want them to be tainted for life because someone in this company is a criminal. DO NOT EVER USE THIS COMPANY! LISTEN TO ALL OF THE COMPLAINTS!! I am going to sue them in small claims court if they don't remedy this as they should because I am going to reiterate to my children to stand up for themselves. Never allow someone to victimize you.

I used your moving service on Sunday, and just wanted to let you know that I am very pleased! The men that moved me were very professional, friendly and worked very hard to get the job done. All of my furniture was carefully loaded and unloaded. When we arrived at our destination the movers were very helpful and asked my preferences as to where to place all of the furniture.

We hired Lightning Van Lines after reading some reviews and we had also seen some of their vehicles on the road. All in all it was a painless and comforting process. The movers were on time and we felt handled our items with care. They weren't just throwing things down the stairs as I had envisioned in my own head. Our property arrived pretty much on time and undamaged. I would recommend if you are looking for a company to move you long distance.

Lightning Van Lines did a fantastic job moving me. They were recommended to me by my realtor who has lived in CA for more than 30 years. He said Lightning Van Lines was the best moving company in the area. I loved the crew who moved my belongings. They were punctual, professional and helpful and I thought the price for the move was fair. I have made several moves in the past, and this company is the best moving company I have ever used. I was dreading moving day, and it actually turned out to be enjoyable.

Very careful with my furniture and I am very thankful for that. I was really happy seeing the movers wrap my furniture extra good, and being careful when taking out everything from my house. Roadway moving is a really good choice.

I've used Lightning Van Lines twice and couldn't be happier! They were on time, professional, and friendly too! They took great care in moving my things and completed the job so QUICKLY! The prices can't be beat for the quality. I will never move on my own again. I highly recommend Lightning Van LInes if you want an affordable and pleasant moving experience.

Ronnie and Ivan showed up right on time for our prearranged move of storage boxes. Unfortunately my team wasn't quite ready for them. Movers were patient and understanding while they waited for the remaining boxes to be packed. Ronnie even offered to help one of our team members pack her boxers up. He was a gem! They were both extremely polite and friendly, made working with them a pleasure! My boss is actually going to use them for her personal move later in the month! Good job Lightning Van Lines! You did well by hiring these guys and I'm glad I phoned you for our business! \n

I moved some furniture and boxes from California to Texas. The price from Lightning Van Lines was better than any other carrier I contacted. Kathy in customer service really went the extra mile for me with all of my various questions and requests. I'd definitely recommend Lightning Van Lines to anyone.

I was extremely happy with Lightning Van Lines professionalism. They gave me a binding price for my move to New Orleans and they didn't change a thing. My things got here quicker then I even thought they would and nothing was damaged or missing. My last move I found plenty of broken items. Ughh, but this company is really something else. I recommend this company to all my friends and family and even strangers. Sincerely, Scott , a happy customer.

I agree with opinions below. I was impressed with Lightning Van Lines. From start to finish, everything was great and professional. I was nervous because this was the first time I hired movers and have heard many horror stories and unexpected cost increases. Compared to other moving companies I spoke to, speaking to the Lightning Van Lines rep put me at ease and I felt that he was actually listening to my needs, especially because I had a scheduling issue related to when I was going to be at my destination. The other companies seemed to sugar coat their estimates and act like they were doing me a big favor. Everything Lightning Van Lines promised happened and there were no surprise or hidden costs at the end. In fact, the actual costs were less than the estimate (I would recommend that one be very realistic in how you estimate how much stuff you have to move, many costs can increase because individuals don't provide realistic estimates.) I would definitely use them again and recommend them to others

ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE PEOPLE !! THEY YELLED AT MY 80 Y.O GRANDMOTHER DEMANDING MORE CASH !! These people called me after an internet move quote request I submitted online...I don't know how they got my info...I didn't submit it to them. They lied about everything and promised me the world, on move day everything changed. They showed up with day laborers that spoke no English...were incredibly lazy rude and had no idea what they were doing. They obviously use fake 5 star reviews to make themselves look better....at delivery...almost all my goods were broken...and they yelled at my 80 year old grandma trying to extort money from her !!....when I checked them out to complain...I found out the USDOT fined them 25000.00 in 2011 for holding customers goods hostage !! These people are criminals !! ...they should not be in business !! DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY !!

Lightning Van Lines just moved me from Fremont CA to Tampa FL. I will be happy to share my smooth experience with them. First, they kept me in touch with their arrival for pick up and drop off. Second, the crew that made the pick was unbelievably quick. They packed and loaded everything very carefully and professionally. At my drop off location I had a different crew but once again they were as efficient as the pick up crew. Lastly, but not least important both crews were very polite and clean. I definitely recommend Lightning Van Lines to anyone who consider future relocation because with them the move is closes to stress free.Thank you

We were referred to Lightning Van Lines by a friend who heard about them from her realtor, Jill Rudman. Their pricing was fair and accurate; they went over every possible charge ahead of time and we opted to have a full pack and move from California to Lake Geneva, Wi. They packed all our boxes on a Tuesday, loaded the everything onto the truck on Wednesday, and delivered on Thursday, as was the arrangement. The guys were so friendly and patient, while handling all of our belongings. I would certainly recommend them to anyone in the california area looking for a smooth moving experience:)

The company I work for [HR ] has been using Lightning van lines for a few years now to perform employee moves so I really didn't have a say in the matter but I honestly can say I couldn't have asked for better service. I always say a company is only as good as its weakest link and there were none to be found here. I am not typically one to write reviews but thought the service earned one.

I was very worried about using a moving company because of the many stories I'm sure everyone has heard. I selected Lightning Van Lines because of their competitive price and also from the minute I talked to the salesman Nathan he walked me through every aspect of the move and how everything will work. On the day of my move they sent me a very professional crew that very carefully packed my furniture. They were very efficient and quick and made this move very smooth. I appreciate the great service from top to bottom and definitely would use them again and recommend them to friends and family.

This was a family heirloom that I was very worried about. It was delivered in perfect condition. It was well protected and the delivery guys were awesome and so personable. They were even interested in its history... a over 150 year old bureau that had been to Montana and back to Ohio during Homesteading era. Thanks!

I can't begin express how helpful they were on this move. We didn't know were to begin. They advised on how we could save money by doing most of the packing and we decided that they would pack our fragile furniture. The price difference from the last move was so much cheaper and the best thing about it was that they were honest and upfront about there pricing. We received delivery in 16 days. It wasguarenteed as we were concerned for our childre not having beds,but they complied. We are very happy with the results!

As an environmental activist, I was in search of an efficient eco-conscious mover who could make the move greener and cleaner. I found Green Van Lines as the apt one to serve my purpose. Their initiative for making a greener world is what that made me hire their services. Believe me I am more than happy getting lightning Van Lines by my side.

ALL FAKE 5 STAR REVIEWS ! I used this company recently on a move from san francisco to LA...they were absolutely the worst company ive ever used ! They lied about flat pricing, charged me an extra 1500.00 on move day, were incredibly rude and argumentative the entire time. They showed up late for the move and made me miss my flight to start off and it was only worse from there ! They claim to be a family owned company but the guys that showed up spoke no english and were obviously day laborers...i was pissed, i went to the usdot website and found out they were fined 25,000.00 last year for fraudulent activities and taking of consumer shipments hostage demanding more money ! DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY !!

During our free estimate, you instilled such confidence in us with respect to Lightning Van Lines's abilities we did not even get other bids. Our confidence was more that warranted after Roy, the foreman during our move, replied, ""Whatever you want!"" when I asked him about moving certain objects. Those words were like music to my ears after all the other confusion and horrible service I experienced in other areas of our move!\nThe crew worked hard and tirelessly, while staying polite and helpful, and they also helped make an exhausting day a little less stressful. We hope to be able to refer many clients to you in the future!\nThanks Again!\n

Recently I moved with Lightning Van Lines. I must tell you this is my third move and each time I used a different moving company. I was not satisfied with the first two but in Lightning Van Lines I received excellent services. The salesperson was friendly and answered all my questions. The movers were prompt and did a professional job. I was very pleased with Lightning and I will definitely recommend them to my family and friends, and also use them for any future move for myself.

Lightning Van Lines crew was excellent, professional, punctual and very personal! The move was set up taking into consideration the smallest of details. They patiently worked through many different scenarios (moving dates, items to be moved, etc) until I could figure out the best plan for my move. This made things so much easier and I am very satisfied with the service.

I made a movement locally in Oakland area with Lightning Van lines. The relocation gentleman was very professional and provided me with a fair price for my things. I was most happy because when they showed up at my place, there was no increase or change in the price I was quoted. I am very pleased and am planning to reference to my friends and coworkers who need to move.

On January 4th I moved from Palo Alto to San Francisco. Never having moved such a possessions before, I was anticipating a nightmare of a day but the two gentlemen?s you sent to assist me in this endeavor, Jose and Sam, made all the difference. Besides being extremely careful with everything (both my furniture and the two apartments) they were efficient, professional, polite and all around a pleasure to work with. I could not have asked for a better team.

My wife and I recently moved from Los Angeles to Washington to be near our grandkids. I have tendonitis in my hand and my wife is in need of a new hip. Yes, what a pair. We needed young strong guys to help us pack up and move. We had several companies come out and give us quotes. After all the hoopla and too high of promises I chose to go with Lightning Van Lines because they seemed honest and didnt promise the world. Nancy told it like it was when she came to our home to give us a visual estimate. On the day of the move three young strong men came and quickly packed up our home of 42 years. I thought it would take days but they arrived early in the morning and were done just before dinner. They even packed some of my most precious belongings in our trailer. Lightning has free storage for one month so we spent the next two weeks traveling in our home on wheels up the coast visiting friends and making new ones. When we knew our arrival date in Spokane, we gave them a call. Our worldly possessions arrived just a few days after we closed on our new house. I recommend Lightning Van Lines to anyone who is moving.\n

I was so satisfied with Lightning Van Lines Moving that I had them move us twice; once from Los Angeles to Santa Monica, and from Santa Monica to our current location in Westlake Village. They were on time, courteous, and fast. Cranium Forest Digital is and Animation Company and we have a lot of expensive and delicate computer equipment. Lightning Van Lines made sure that each piece was carefully wrapped and placed on the truck so nothing would happen to them. I have recommended them in the past and will continue recommending them anyone looking for a moving company.

LIGHTNING VAN LINES is the best moving company in San Francisco area. I had moved so many times before in this city, and it was a hellish experience each time. This time when I moved I've chosen LIGHTNING, and it was the best thing I've done with moving. They give you a price, based on your detailed info and needs, they have the best salesmen, the nicest movers, and the job is done before you even have time to stress about it. Have some peace of mind when you move- chose Lightning.

Recently I moved with Lightning Van Lines. I must tell you this is my third move and each time I used a different moving company. I was not satisfied with the first two but in Lightning Van Lines I received excellent services. The salesperson was friendly and answered all my questions. The movers were prompt and did a professional job. I was very pleased with Lightning and I will definitely recommend them to my family and friends, and also use them for any future move for myself.

I am writing this letter to recommend the services of Lightning Van Lines Moving Corporation. When I first contacted Lightning Van Lines I wasn't sure about my plans and the move was rather complicated. I was sending some furniture to relatives, and planning to store the rest of my belongings for an unspecified period of time. Only a few days before the second half of the move I changed my plans and told Lightning Van Lines that I was taking an apartment in the area and needed to move in at the end of June, requiring storage of my belongings for just a two week period. Eithan and the rest of the highly professional and capable staff at Lightning Van Lines saw to it that everything went smoothly and were able, on short notice, to meet my needs. The move out of my prior residence went well and they accommodated my request to be in my new apartment before the end of the month, making a special effort to do so. Moving is a challenge, but the staff at Lightning Van Lines helped me meet the challenge successfully. I plan to use Lightning Van Lines in the future and would recommend Lightning Van Lines.

We were making a move from Irvine, CA to Minneapolis, MN. They came out to our apartment and gave us a binding written estimate of $2600 with a not to exceed maximum of of $2900. The driver called in the morning and asked if I had had any extra stuff that had not been in the estimate. I said I had one extra tricycle, but had gotten rid of five boxes worth of kid toys. He said he'd come take a look and see how much extra it was going to be. A few hours late, they came to assess what I had. They counted the boxes - there were way more than the estimater had estimated. They started saying the lamps weren't on the list and the trash can wasn't on the list and they are going to have to adjust the estimate. They hiked the price to an estimate of $3900 with a maximum of $4400. An increase of $1400!! I said absolutely not. After two hours of them making phone calls and not budging on the price, they decided to leave. The foreman said on the way out, ""Wow, you are holding up much better than most women. They usually cry."" That sums up the fact that they pull this crap often!\n\nI would not go with this company. From the first phone call on moving day, they obviously intended to jack up my price. This destroys the whole point of a written guaranteed maximum. It was Saturday afternoon when we had to figure out a new moving company and of course, every company's sales divisions are closed Saturday and Sunday. Lightning Van Lines tried to rip us off at our most difficult time on moving day on a weekend when they know we have no other options. They did offer us a sorry check of $150 to prevent us from suing, etc.

If you do go with them, make sure they write down EVERY single item in your house on the estimate, including lamps, large toys, children's toys, large stuffed animals, and table lamps. These were the items they said were not on our quote (they were obviously in our house when they came to do the estimate - I just didn't know you needed to make sure the estimater explicitly write that you had an umbrella.)

I can say I am definitely a fan of Lightning Van Lines. It's been a few months since my move with them but unpacking took me forever. Next time I hire movers I will ask for the unpacking service. I had never heard of this company and I was a little worried at first because they didn't have a lot of great reviews but they were referred to me by a friend from Microsoft and I also found them on Angie's List. I did a lot of searching with companies as this is my first out of state move. I just started a brand new job and my new employer was reimbursing me and they even offered company invoicing which was new to me. They came to my home and put the rate in writing. They did a great job as far a moving was concerned and only one small item was broken which was covered by the insurance I purchased. I recommend them and will use them again. I dealt directly with their sales manager Mark. I did get to speak to their customer service person a few times and she seemed polite. If you want good service you can ask for Mark and say you saw my review. He will give a 5% discount to your move!
