HOMEOWNER REVIEWS SELECTED FROM SURVEYS COLLECTED:

“That was awesome. That was great. I liked the foreman; I was able to communicate with the foreman every day, and explain to him what I was expecting, and how I wanted things done, and he handled everything perfectly. I'll give him an A, all across.”

“Florida Forward Van Lines showed up when they said they'd show up, and they did what they said they'd do. That's always a surprise in South Florida, when that actually happens. I would definitely recommend them, and they were exactly what I hoped they would be. They didn't mess around on the job, and they were where they were supposed to be when they were supposed to be there, did what they were supposed to do. I'd give them an A for sure. I don't have any complaints about them. They were fine. They knew what they were doing. I'd absolutely recommend them; I already have, actually. I actually got them out of a magazine that the county put out; it was nice that the information was accurate.”

“They were timely, they were organized, and did a good job. Whatever they promised, they delivered. I'd give them an A. I had a hard time talking with them.”

“They helped me move; I think that that's probably the biggest thing. I would give it an A. It was fine; they just moved stuff. I packed everything. It's not like brain science or something like that. I would recommend them, but I think I'd let someone figure it out on their own, because there are so many moving companies out there.”

“They came, they took up my stuff, and brought it to me the next day. It's only me in the house and the apartment, so we don't have anything in the house. It's just two bedrooms, but there's one empty. It's not much. I'd give them an A. I didn't have any concern with them. They did good, from the first guy who came—and the group that came, moved my stuff. I just thought they did everything—I would recommend them if I have to.”

“They were terrific. I moved my furniture from Miami Beach to Panama City. They were very professional in their relationship to me and to each other. They obviously worked very well as a team; very efficiently and quickly. My furniture was delivered in perfect condition. I certainly would recommend them to anyone. They deserve an A+.”

“It was excellent, and it was impeccably well done. The guys were really nice and did their work beautifully, and they went beyond what I thought they'd do. They get an A+ from me.”

“They are so good. They are awesome. They were great. We interviewed a few people, and we picked them because the guy was so sweet and so nice. We had the same girl all the way through that kept us in touch with everything that was going on. It was just amazing. It was a really good experience. My mom moved to Florida 35 years ago, and she needed time. We had to move her back up to Norwalk, and it was a pretty dramatic move. They were so sweet, and they made it so easy. She was just moving everything out of her house after 35 years to come up here to Norwalk. It was really emotional, but they made it so great. It was really good. It was one less thing to worry about. I'd give them an A+. I'd definitely recommend them.”

“They made our life much, much easier. The staff that showed up did their part of the job perfectly. Everything was wrapped nicely, and it was packed in a timely fashion. Above all, when the stuff was delivered, it was all intact. Nothing was broken or missing or anything. It was excellent, no complaints.”

“I had wonderful experience. The workers were helpful. They were very efficient, they were in and out, and they took good care of their stuff. It was a five-hour move; a couple hundred miles. It was in Florida, but it was a little bit further than a just-around-the-corner type of thing. I'd give them an A+. I've recommended them already a couple of times. Their quality of service and the professionalism of the men and the owner stood out to me.”

“We moved from Florida to California. They were the best. I'd give them an A+. They were very good. I would recommend them.”

“Everything was good. I'd give them an A+ overall. Everything was excellent. I would absolutely recommend them.”

“The three guys that did my move were absolutely hardworking and efficient. My husband and I are senior citizens; I'm 70, and he's 86. They just made it so easy. I was dreading it, but they were absolutely wonderful to us. The move was just a few minutes away. I'd give them an A+.”

“It was beyond a positive experience. I recommended somebody else to them who had a positive experience as well. They were fantastic. They were on time, and they moved fast. They cared about my furniture, and they were friendly. I'd give them an A+.”

“They're very nice people. Everything worked out. They moved some furniture and some belongings. Nothing broke; everything's fine. I would give them an A+ overall. The company is perfect. I wouldn't recommend anyone but that company. They're very nice people, trust me.”

“They're professional, but friendly enough to where you can have a conversation. They were moving for me. I'd give them an excellent rating. I definitely would recommend them.”

“They were excellent. We were able to work with them, and the crew was really good. We were able to talk and work with them, and they would do this and do that. It was very pleasant. I'd give them an A overall.”

“They were just very efficient. They loaded my truck. They were excellent. I'd give them an A.”

“I'm very happy with them because they took my order, and it was overnight. They came in the morning, moved around everything, and even gave me free storage for two or three weeks. They took my furniture and put it in their storage in Ft. Lauderdale because my apartment wasn't ready at that time. I was very happy with them. When they moved everything from the storage to my apartment, only one thing was broken; the dining table. They replaced it; they ordered me a new dining table. Everything was perfect. I'm very happy with this company, very happy. I have zero complaints, and I'm very happy they took my order overnight because I had services set up with other companies. When they came, they were ready with their stuff. I'm very happy with Forward Van Lines, very happy. I would recommend them. I will use only them. They're very professional. They stayed in touch with me. They were texting me, asking me this and that. Even when they tried to replace my broken glass on the dining table, they were not able to find a normal guy that could make the glass. They contacted me to get the info from where they might get it. I told them where I got it from, they contacted them, and they fixed everything. It was brand new. I'm very, very happy.”

“They just did what they said they were going to do. They were prompt and pleasant. The gentleman that did the packing and the manager that did the estimate were just straight up. I appreciated the honesty. I just have to get the date confirmed when it's getting delivered. Then I'll be extremely happy. I'd give them an A overall. I have recommended them already.”

“I liked their professionalism. They were good guys. They really helped me a lot. They packed up and took care of everything. They made sure that nothing was going to even get a scratch. When they unpacked everything, they were very cautious in not scratching the walls. They were just very professional. I have to admit that the day that I move again, I'll definitely use them again. It was excellent. I have no complaints at all. I'd absolutely recommend them.”

“I had two separate moves. One to take some stuff to a new home, and another one to take stuff to storage. I did those on two separate dates. I would say the initial contact with the rep was very friendly, thorough, professional, and detailed. Of course the crew, they were very professional and efficient and took very good care of my stuff. I would definitely give them an A+. I already have recommended them.”

Even the packing was smooth faster than I expected. There was less tension from my end and more comfort. Since I spoke in detail of what I needed initially, they made sure that nothing changed. It all went well, and even the final delivery was still within the limit that they said. So that was good. I would give them an A for the overall experience. Their punctuality was well appreciated. I've seen better when it comes to cleanliness. So maybe that needs improvement. I'd definitely recommend them.”
