Good experience would use Allied again
Went very well. They provided boxes, packed our kitchen and glassware. The movers showed up on time both to load and unload at our new apartment and at the storage place.

Rose moved us from Michigan to Las Vegas.
They were great. They are responsible for my continuing service with Angie's List. We had never had a big move prior and this was a really good experience.
