Moving with Us Van Line
I can't possibly expect a group of strangers to understand my attachment to the things I own. But these things I bought with hard earned wages. So the movers from US Van Line had to be really reliable. Since the moment they arrived, they were very polite and friendly. Their work was very efficient and they wasted no time while packing and loading all my belongings. By the time the men had left with my belongings, I was sure that my valuables were safe in their hands. They really did deliver everything unbroken and undamaged. I still can't believe how easy they made my move seem like. I will be forever in their debt.

I hired US Van Line to move my things last month. The movers they sent were very capable and experienced. They systematically worked together to pack up everything and then load them to the truck. Even the truck was very spacious and brand new. I knew my valuables were safe in their hands. I was proven right when they delivered everything in excellent condition. Not even a glass was broken. It was a great move and I'm very thankful.
US Van Line was easily accessible during entire process via email or phone. Their manager Lisa thoroughly explained how the moving would go and gave me the estimate based on the information I gave. The movers were on time and got to work quickly. The movers were great at the packing service- all the boxes were marked and easily found upon arrival. Everything arrived in the same condition as it left. I had a really stress-free move with these guys.
US Van Line was a life saver. I was displaced abruptly from my job and forced to move with little notice to new store. As I had very little time between locations, they helped me pack, load and unload all in time to get back to work. They were extremely courteous especially when making the arrangements, making sure every detail was taken care of. The gentlemen that came for my things were a huge help. I was so pleased to have someone get me through this. I recommend US Van Line to anyone needing to move in a hurry. I am definitely returning the next time I have to move.
“Country music scholar Bill Malone has gone so far as to say that trucking songs account for the largest component of work songs in the country music catalog. For a style of music that has, since its commercial inception in the 1920s, drawn attention to the coal man, the steel drivin’ man, the railroad worker, and the cowboy, this certainly speaks volumes about the cultural attraction of the trucker in the American popular consciousness.” — Shane Hamilton
The number one hit on the Billboard chart in 1976 was quite controversial for the trucking industry.
