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.

HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE! Crooks!!! I paid for my father's things to be transported from Upstate New York to North Carolina. They called a day earlier than our moving window and asked if they could pick up his things in 2 hours.

After paying over 100.00 for a cab-ride home to be there to meet the movers unexpectedly and not on the schedule we had agreed to; they didn't show up for another SEVEN HOURS, at almost 8:00pm (AT NIGHT)!

And then charged my father an extra 250.00 alleging his items were more than the quoted cubic footage; which I KNOW is a lie because we measured AND TOOK PICTURES OF EVERYTHING beforehand!!!

Now, almost 2 WEEKS LATER, we STILL DON'T KNOW WHERE HIS THINGS ARE!!!! We were told the things would be delivered 5 days after pick-up, on Monday, August 3rd; so I took off work to be there and they never showed up; that was a week ago.

I called customer service last Friday and they said they would call me back with an ETA later that morning and I still have not heard back from them. When I call the number they called me from, it is forwarded to a voicemailbox that is full.

Allegiance Moving and Storage lied to me and took advantage of me. They said they would adjust my cubic feet of household goods when they load it on the truck. They lied and they don't know how to pack a truck. Do not sign anything. They say they unpack your stuff, they don't. I have 11 moving blankets to prove it. I am considered a senior and they took full advantage of me and during the COVID-19 by doubling the cost of my move.

My mother and I were so happy with Allegiance Moving and Storage. They were so professional. They got started promptly and were super nice all day long. She was moving from California to Arizona after retiring and they made a very emotional day for her into something wonderful. This is a great team to work with. Thank you again Allegiance. We are so happy with your work and consider ourselves blessed to have found your services.

I would recommend Allegiance to literally everyone. They were very affordable and gave us excellent service. I was really worried about my move because it was such a long distance from New Jersey to California but Allegiance made the whole thing seamless.

They were so professional that they were able to ease my mind right away. Their office staff is also wonderful and were always super responsive when we needed something. I also wanted to say that their driver was both quick and great at handling everything during the move.

This is the second time I have hired these guys and they are just awesome. We were living in a second floor condo that was very tricky to get large furniture in and out of. These guys however were on top of it and very efficient. They really made the whole thing look easy. Everyone was nice, polite, and very friendly. I highly recommend using this company. I don’t write many reviews but after my experience with this company they definitely deserve 5 stars!

Allegiance Moving and Storage has the best movers. They did such a great job when they came to our home for our relocation. They got everything to us in record time without a single scratch on anything. Such a great job guys! Thank you Allegiance! Keep up the great work! Also, something I wanted to mention is that their pricing is very affordable. It was much less than what I budgeted which gave us extra money to buy a few new things for our new home. Allegiance Moving and Storage is awesome!

Hiring Allegiance was a very pleasant experience. They had very positive attitudes and excellent work ethic. They came in ready to work and didn’t stop until the job was completely done. Everything was handled quickly and carefully. I really wish that I could give them more stars. I’m very glad I used them for my move. Right from the beginning they were on top of everything. I really can’t express how grateful I am. I have heard so many terrible stories about poor moving experiences but this company is one of the good ones. I am so satisfied with their work and how well they handled my move. I will definitely be using them again.

I used Allegiance first for temporary storage after we sold our house and then to move our things after we purchased our new one. They were a very fast and very hard workers. They were so helpful and attentive to our every need. I can also say they were very reasonably priced. Much less than I expected. I would recommend this company to anyone is moving or to anyone who is looking for storage for their belongings. They did a great job.

When I first reached out to Allegiance they were very responsive. They genuinely wanted to know what our needs were and gave us a spot on quote. The price was far more affordable than many of the other companies I had used in the past and so I was more than happy to hire them. They were very professional to work with.

I genuinely felt like they went above and beyond to work with me and my family and get things done on time. If you are moving this company does it all! I would use them again without any hesitation.

Such an awesome company! I highly recommend using them if you’re planning a move. Their office staff are such effective communicators. They made scheduling easy and handled everything professionally. The three movers we had were so hard working. Our move was long distance and so it took a lot of work but everyone Allegiance worked hard to make it happen. I have nothing but positive things to say about this company. It was so nice to not have any stress on the day of my move.
