BLATANT THEFT -- All of our goods did not arrive. Mainly high-value electronic items, that have yet to be recovered, some items came damaged. The delivery crew failed to set up my children's bedroom furniture correctly causing damage to both beds. We have tried to no avail to speak to the GM but continue to get the run around. We were not treated in a manner that is stated in this company's mission statement. We wrote an extensive letter capturing the chain of events from pick up to delivery; capturing all items that were stolen and damaged but still no response. We made contact starting from the very day our household goods were delivered, and items found to be missing, have yet to hear from the GM on this issue. DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY!!!

We just moved last Friday and we used Publics van Lines. They were excellent! We used them to move but we did the packing. They called the day before to confirm. They call the morning of the move to say they were on their way. The owner showed up during the move to check on things and help out for a little while. Nothing was broken and they took apart our bed plus bunk beds and put them together again. There were fantastic! I have already recommended then to two friends : )

Wow, what can I say? Fast, efficient and affordable!! We had major moving truck issue and these guys sat and waited for 2 hours while we sorted out the issue for free. They didn't charge me for their sit time.

They did show up an hour and half early which did take me by surprise. If it wasn't moving day I would probably be happy the showed up early but you are never ready when you are moving.

All tape, FREE. All shrink wrap, FREE. They took great care of everything. They only took two breaks the entire 4.5 hours for probably less than 10 mins each.

We only utilized their labor portion to load our boxes and large furniture in our 2 bedroom apartment since we moved across country but they shrink wrapped all my furniture (with my blankets) and not a single thing was damaged.

We also had a $50 over charge and they were very quick to credit that money back to my account.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

Wow, the 'net seems to have a vendetta against these guys!! on yelp, ALL of their positive reviews are censored...well, damn, I had a great experience with them and i'm proud to share that with the populace en masse. I dealt with a Shannon in residential Los Angeles branch and she was TOO kind. I really felt a lot of genuine caring, compassion and understanding from her and the office on a whole. Tony, Sal, and Vinny were our drivers/actual movers, and everything was packaged/delivered to spec.

GREAT FOR CROSS COUNTRY MOVES...Public Van Lines is great for cross-country moves. They kick the competitions' butts in terms of pricing, and the REALLY do deliver. I tried Allied, Starving Students, and every other line I could think of, HOWEVER, Public was so much cheaper than any of the above. I wish that I could give them even higher grades than this page allows.

I chose Public Van Lines after reading positive reviews on this site and others. I didn't notice the positive reviews were mainly from people moving within NYC. I moved from Los Angeles to Pittsburgh with these guys and it has been an absolute nightmare. They've sat on my belongings for three weeks now. They concocted a reason why the federal law requiring them to deliver in 21 business days doesn't apply. I literally cry in frustration after I call them. They usually try to get off the phone if you call by saying you need to put information in an email. Emails are never answered. I've never been treated so badly by any company in my life.

The 101 on Public: They basically made my stress melt away on the day of the move. Unlike most of the other reviews above, I secured this company for long distance service (to New Hampshire). As a side note, I absolutely despise moving and I delayed my move for 2 years out of sheer fear, but I finally had to succumb to my circumstances. On the day of the move, Public Van Lines treated me with respect and was very sensitive with my moving neurosis. The crew has a "Lose The Stress" worksheet they wanted me to abide by. I gotta tell you, this moving company was destiny.

I had an ALL INCLUSIVE DOOR TO DOOR quote. They get to my place the morning I have to move out and start putting the screws to me. Every single piece of paper they handed me had some sort of extra hidden fee that wasn't disclosed, despite me having ask multiple times, if there were any other charges I needed to be aware of. I had everything in boxes except for the furniture. All they had to do was carry it to the truck. They added $9 for every moving blacket, $3 for every roll of tape, $12 for every item that had any plastic wrap on which is all of them, $250 to move it from the big truck to a little truck in Chicago, wrap pieces of glass that were on the desk, tv stand, etc that were already listed on the quote, plastic wrap for the mattress and box spring, 8% fuel surcharge, bubble wrap.......I could possible list or remember all of the extra charges.

I want to remind everyone that this was an ALL INCLUSIVE DOOR TO DOOR quote.....that was suppose to include all charges. To top it off....after they loaded the truck, in which I decided not to take everything that was on the quote, they still insisted that it took up more space than estimated for the quote and that if would be extra for the additional space. Now this wasn't some machine or measuring device that determined that it took up more space. This is a guy standing there looking at the stuff in the back of the truck.

What a scam!!!!!

They just say anything they can to sell the job or get your stuff on the truck and then they whip you with the fine print. It doesn't matter how many questions you ask, they will just lie and then reference the fine print later. You'll be treated like a hostage until you cough up more money, no matter how diligent you believe you have been in the interview process. When you ask a direct question about other charges or fees, they say no or use industry terms that you aren't familiar with, so you don't catch it until it's too late. You can't win with this company, so stay far away.

HI, I moved from New York to Brea California and used Public Van lines AS MY MOVER , for my residence. The quality of the move was the best I have ever received. I have moved several times cross country, due to the nature of my work. This move with Public Van lines was of the highest quality. I had they pack everything and their price was for the plan that included all the packing supplies. The packer , Leon, was absolutely fantastic with his crew. He took the time to pack all my fragile items so they would not break. I was amazed that not even one Glass broke. The estimate was right about near to the original quote I received. I did take the time to give an inventory list and was very accurate. You need to be very accurate and take the time to do the list , and Jim went over the list in detail to my satisfaction. I will be doing a second move with them to bring my sensitive company equipment to Califoria. THis company was first rate all the way. The delivery was also very timly.

Hi was thoroughly pleased with the service that these people provided. I have never used movers before and was, as one would expect, extremely wary and tentative when making my selection. But the reviews on this site were very positive, and deservedly do. The team, which was led buy a guy named English, was terrific: professional, prompt, courteous, unobstrusive and very efficient. They didn't waste time and immediately got cracking on getting things in the van, driving to my new apartment, and unloading everything. (In fact, they got to my new apartment faster that I did, since I took the subway; English even called to let me know that they had arrived there already.) The quote that was provided was on point, and the estimated time frame was accurate (they actually finished the job about 15 before earlier than anticipated). Re: extra charges, I was charged an additional $20 for special packaging that was needed for my rather large TV (which was not provided in the intial quote, since I didn't think to pack it away), once English made an assessment of all my furniture. However, they were honest and up-front with me right off the bat about the additional fee, since they were concerned about loading my TV in the van without any protective packaging. It was a reasonable fee, and in the end I'm glad I availed of it. Overall, a very positive experience, and I would happily use these movers again.

Despite the Ironic name of their company, based on their reviews, I decided to give these guys a try. I spoke to David over the phone, gave him a list of items and pick up and drop off addresses. Our moving guys arrived on time and were all english speaking. They wrapped up the furniture nicely. The pick up adress in NY was a 4th fl walkup but they quickly managed to get the furniture down, even though the stairs were very narrow. At the unloading location it was pretty fast and the guys even took apart and put together my Ikea closet (without manual). Overall I am was really satisfied, and consider their service to be exceptional. I moved with Moshes before, but these guys were even better, oh did I say they cost 3 times less. Will definetely use them again for any future move, and will definetely recommend to my friends..

I heard about this company colleagues at work. Public Van lines was highly recommended because of the company's reliability and reasonable cost. I was not disappointed. First, the guys showed up in a real moving truck and they were early. I lived on the second floor of a walkup building and they moved all three rooms in about two hours. They had to make two stops since half my belongings were going into storage and the other half was going to my new apartment. At the storage facility, the guys stop loaded everything into the storage room quickly and neatly. Last stop was my new apartment share where they again brought in everything quickly and neatly. My bed was assembled in no time flat.

I gladly bought them bottled water, energy drinks and tipped them well after the move. I was extremely satisfied and will definitely use this company for my next move.

Oh, I called them about 2 days before my move, so they get bonus points for coming on such short notice!

At the storage facility, the guys stop loaded everything into the storage room quickly and neatly. Last stop was my new apartment share where they again brought in everything quickly and neatly. My bed was assembled in no time flat.

I gladly bought them bottled water, energy drinks and tipped them well after the move. I was extremely satisfied and will definitely use this company for my next move.

Oh, I called them about 2 days before my move, so they get bonus points for coming on such short notice!

I used " Public Van Lines " for a last minute move earlier this month. I could not have been happier. I had about two bedrooms worth of items to move. I decided to use them based off reviews on yelp. My move was sort of complex and the guys still were willing to negotiate the price with me. I called them Friday evening and asked if they could pick up my items from two different addresses in NY (all packed and ready to go) and I needed them before 6pm Monday in NC (I had to catch a flight later that night). They picked up my stuff on Saturday evening from both addresses and around noon the next day (Sunday) the movers were at my door with my belongings all in execellent shape. I was very pleased with their service and highly recommend them to anyone needing to move in the NY tri-state area.

We were hesitant to get movers for our move from Hoboken into Manhattan, but it was a great decision to go with Public Van Lines. They were very professional and efficient. They showed up early, were done in less than 3 hours and the price was unheard of (after doing quite a bit of research). All of our items were delivered to the new place in perfect condition. I would highly recommend this company for your next move!

I discovered Public Van Lines in 2008 through a glowing recommendation from fellow renters at a storage facility. Based on that and good online postings, I had them move items from my apartment and storage units in NYC to storage facilities in NJ. They were prompt, fast and attentive. I found them to be very knowledgeable, professional and reasonably priced. I asked them to again move more things for me in 2009, with the same positive results.

A quick note of thanks for Public Van Lines handling our move to Northern CT. Max,English and David worked nonstop. They were gentlemanly and unobtrusive; their team work and maturity very evident. To move a full 2 bedroom apartment 100 miles in 7 hours door to door is nothing short of Olympic. And the cost was 1/2 of my other estimates. I feel very lucky to have found you. I will surely recommend your company to any friends who need to move and please feel free to refer any potential customers who need reassurance to me. Again, NICE WORK !!!...and THANKS !!
