Pros and Cons
Compare some of the pros and cons of Allied Van Lines below:
✔ Offers in-house vehicle relocation services

Allied Van Lines offers a variety of full-service moving options. Similar to IVL, Allied provides full-packing services, custom crating, and partial-packing services.
It also offers a fragile-only packing service. With this service, Allied will handle any difficult items or rooms, such as your kitchen, while you pack the rest on your own. This is a great middle ground between full-service and partial-service packing.
The company also sells packing supplies, and it offers a DIY, portable storage container service called Allied Express.
Allied offers moving coverage with its Basic Liability Protection plan, which provides a maximum of 60 cents per pound per article should your items get damaged or lost. This plan is free of charge, but you must mention it in writing to Allied. Allied Van Lines also offers an Extra Care Protection plan. This plan is based on the declared value of your items.
Allied Van Lines provides binding estimates, which is a price that does not drastically change during your move despite unexpected events or setbacks. To obtain a binding estimate, you must conduct an in-home or virtual survey with Allied. Allied provided us a ballpark quote to move a three-bedroom home from Dallas to San Diego with an average amount of items for $7,649–$8,453. Packing services would place the price closer to $8,453.
