How Allegiance Moving and Storage Works for You

Allegiance Moving and Storage is a broker that coordinates all you need to complete a safe and timely relocation. A standard move the company organizes includes:

  • Transportation of household or commercial office goods
  • Wrapping furniture to prevent damage
  • An itemized inventory of all goods to include with pre-move condition
  • Up to 30 days of free storage
  • Packing tape and moving pads, but not boxes and packing materials

The mover may disassemble and reassemble furniture. Ask Allegiance to ensure the mover has the proper tools if you need this service. A specialized third party may need to handle particularly delicate or ornate furniture. Give Allegiance Moving and Storage sufficient details to ensure your furniture gets proper handling in your moving estimate.

Allegiance Moving and Storage Professional Packing

Professional packing and unpacking is not part of a standard move. Allegiance Moving and Storage can arrange for this service for an additional fee. Using a packing and unpacking service may be a good idea for consumers if they:

  • Have a large number of belongings
  • Are short on time
  • Are moving long-distance
  • Own several fragile items

Packing services save customers time and in turn, relieve their stress. Professional packers ensure treasured possessions arrive intact at the new location.

Allegiance Moving and Storage Costs

Since every move is different, Allegiance Moving and Storage does not disclose general service costs on its website. However, you will receive a binding estimate, so there are no financial surprises during the move. The estimate shouldn’t change unless you add more services after the quote, or discover additional items you need transported.

To give you an idea of moving costs, we compiled some average long-distance moving cost information.

Allegiance Moving and Storage Add-On Costs

Allegiance lists some potential extra costs in the terms and conditions. Not all movers charge these fees, but they are relatively standard across all moving companies.

  • $50 to move items down each flight of stairs after the first
  • $75 to move items every 100 feet after the first 100 feet
  • $0.35 to $0.45 per cubic foot of belongings stored after the first month of free storage
  • $300+ if the truck is unable to park at the new destination, requiring shuttles

Review your agreement with Allegiance Moving and Storage carefully to be sure you understand all costs. Ask if the carrier charges a tariff, which increases your final bill.

How to Hire Allegiance Moving and Storage

To initiate an Allegiance Moving and Storage move, call the broker or fill out the quick five-question online quote form. Once submitted, a company representative will contact you to discuss your relocation needs in detail.

Once you receive and agree to a firm quote, your downpayment is 30% of the estimate plus an estimate fee. Allegiance then begins coordinating the professional required to complete the move. You must pay 50% of the remaining balance before the moving company picks up your items. The remaining balance gets paid before unloading at the new location.

Allegiance Moving and Storage Complaints

Allegiance Moving and Storage receives mixed reviews online. Raters on VerifiedMovers give the broker 5 out of 5 stars. The average reviewer score on the Better Business Bureau site is about 3.5 out of 5 stars. BirdEye gives Allegiance 3.9 stars on a 5-star scale. The company has many satisfied customers, but there are some complaints online. Issues are regarding unforeseen moving cost increases, delivery delays and poor customer service. Some of these problems originate with the mover and not Allegiance Moving and Storage.

Allegiance Moving and Storage Q&A

  • How does Allegiance Moving and Storage vet its moving company partners?

    Allegiance Moving and Storage carefully screens moving partners by reviewing each company’s safety record and reputation. Movers are verified and authorized by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) to transport consumer goods.

    All moving companies have adequate cargo, bodily injury and property damage insurance. Finally, Allegiance ensures partners provide binding estimates to eliminate price changes. However, movers are permitted to use subcontractors.

  • What is the Allegiance Moving and Storage cancellation policy?

    Customers who cancel their move within 72 hours of booking get a full refund of their deposit less a 10% administration fee. Cancellations after the 72-hour mark are eligible for a 50% deposit refund. Cancellations made within 72 hours of the customer’s first available pickup date are nonrefundable.

    Reservations booked within five days of the customer’s first available pickup date are also not refunded. Customers can use nonrefundable deposits toward another move within 12 months.

  • What happens if a consumer’s belongings are damaged during an Allegiance Moving and Storage move?

    Customers experiencing damage should contact Allegiance Moving and Storage. Allegiance will guide them through the claim process. Per the industry standard, customers are eligible to receive $0.60 per pound of damaged goods, up to $10,000. This coverage is industry-standard, but it’s usually inadequate. We recommend buying additional insurance to protect against loss regardless of the mover you use.

  • Does Allegiance Moving and Storage guarantee pickup and delivery dates?

    Unless the customer purchases the optional Premium Guaranteed Service package, Allegiance Moving and Storage does not guarantee pickup or delivery dates. Circumstances like weather, traffic and truck breakdowns can cause dates to shift. Customers should be prepared to wait up to 30 business days from their first available delivery date to receive their items.

  • Does Allegiance Moving and Storage disconnect or reconnect appliances?

    Customers will have to make other arrangements to disconnect appliances at the location they are leaving and reconnect at the destination. Depending on the appliance, this may require an electrician, plumber or handyman.

Conclusion

Allegiance Moving and Storage helps both residential and commercial customers affordably relocate to their new destination. The broker partners with licensed moving professionals to transport consumer belongings safely and securely. Allegiance tailors moving services to each customer’s situation, ensuring a worry-free moving experience no matter how far they’re going.

I wanted to jump right on writing a review for this company because they did such a great job for us. It’s really hard to find a company that you can trust to move your things but this company was careful and considerate every step of the way. It was just a great experience! I would suggest when you call them letting them know exactly what you need moved because they give very accurate quotes and that helped us a lot.

It was also very nice to find that there weren’t any strange or unexpected fees charged to us. As far as I’m concerned, this is the best moving company out there. They handled everything perfectly and treated us the way customers should be treated. You really can’t go wrong with Allegiance Moving and Storage.

Allegiance Moving did an outstanding job when I hired them to move my mother. She had just recently retired and her home was just too big for her by herself. The guys that Allegiance sent her were very kind. I coudn’t be there the entire time they were packing and loading things for her but when I called to check in she confirmed that they did a great job. My wife and I were the ones that paid for the move and so we were happy to find that not only were their affordably priced but that stuck to our original estimate. No unexpected fees or charges to be find. Based on this experience I will give them 5 stars and pass on the recommendations that others use their services.

My experience was nothing short of fantastic. I’m glad I decided to move with Allegiance. The front office made everything easy. I had to reschedule twice and they were more than happy to work with me to make my move happen. They showed up on time and were ready to work. Nothing was lost or damaged at all. They saved us so much time and the cost was right on budget for our needs. I would definitely recommend this company for your next move. They do outstanding work.

This company 100% took care of all of my moving needs. We hired them for both packing and moving services and they did both well very well. They were careful with everything, especially my furniture and the items that were breakable.

The customer service I received both from their desk staff and their movers was great. They were straightforward and easy to understand on every front. I would definitely use this company again. I truly recommend them to anyone who is looking for a good moving company. They are very trustworthy. Thank you.

The team from Allegiance Moving was amazing. They were on time and through the whole move they were professional and kind. When you have someone handling your things and coming and in and out of your home you want someone friendly and trustworthy and these guys definitely fit the bill.

They did everything they could to make sure that our belongings were safe. This is probably the smoothest and easiest move I have ever experienced. I would gladly recommend the Allegiance team to anyone who is planning a move. They took great care of us.

These are the most professional movers that I have ever used. The front office staff is wonderful and each individual I spoke to was kind and understanding. They really did everything they could to make sure that my move went perfectly. The movers themselves were very proficient. I consider them an asset and highly recommend their services. This company was fabulous to work with. The whole move couldn’t have gone more smoothly and I felt like my home and belongings were respected and safe in their hands.

After we retired my wife and I decided to move up to Michigan to be closer to our grandkids. My daughter had used Allegiance previously and recommended them. We figured we could trust her experience and decided to book them. I will say that we had exactly the experience we were expecting.

Everything was done exactly the way we wanted it. They were nice guys who seemed to be experienced and made the move very easy. I want to take the time to write them a review because I really appreciated how hard they worked for us. I don’t think my wife and I will be moving again but if we do we will give them a call and if someone we know is moving we will be sending them to Allegiance.

I haven’t had a lot of prior experience with moving companies but I do have to say that Allegiance gave us a great value for the price we paid and provided with wonderful customer service.

Each individual I dealt with was highly professional and very kind. I had them both pack and move my home and they did an excellent job with both. They worked as fast as they could without slacking on quality. I could easily go on and on about the quality of work and the excellent service I received but to make a long story short if you need a solid moving company that won’t cost you an arm and a leg this is the place to go.

I ended up calling Allegiance a day before my move. I injured myself trying to haul and pack boxes myself and needed last minute help. They got me on the schedule right away. I really couldn’t be happier with the whole experience. They were amazing with our pets and careful with our things. The guys were super friendly and genuinely seemed to be good people.

Everything is now unpacked and we haven’t found even the slightest bit of damage. They really went above and beyond in both accommodating us and in the quality of the move. I would highly recommend them and will be giving them a call if we move again.

The movers that we had the pleasure of working with from Allegiance Moving were very professional and showed great care with our belongings. They not only loaded my home up in a very timely manner but they also transported and unloaded everything much faster than expected. They were flexible with our moving plans which meant the whole thing couldn’t have gone better. I also didn’t find a single damaged item. I’ve never had that experience with a moving company before.

Typically, there’s always some sort of mess up but not with these guys. They were excellent. They even protected my carpet when moving things into the new house! That’s not something you see often. Everyone was wonderful and everything came to me safely, that’s really all I can ask for. They also helped me put together some of the harder furniture pieces that needed to be disassembled during transport. I would recommend these guys.
