Headquartered in Sacramento, California, United Nation Van Lines focuses on its three core values: affordability, reliability, and speed.
United Nation Van Lines puts affordability first because long-distance moves can be quite costly. However, just because the company offers affordable pricing does not mean it skimps on quality or customer service.

While it can be tempting to DIY move, United Nation Van Lines encourages consumers to reconsider. Many consumers avoid moving companies because they believe that they’re more expensive; however, there are many costs that people often overlook, including the following:
The company states that all those expenses and contingencies are covered and customers can relax knowing that they’re working with licensed and insured professionals.
Customers can get a 50 percent discount on their packing services — if they agree to unpack after their boxes have been delivered.
When compared to other moving companies, United Nation Van Lines comes up a bit short — specifically in regards to the number of moving services.
The company does offer packing and storage services, but that’s pretty much it. Other companies we researched offered additional (and optional) services such as home cleaning, trash and debris removal, auto transport, shipment tracking, and more.
FAQ sections are an excellent resource for consumers as it allows them to quickly and easily find answers to all their questions in one place. Unfortunately, United Nation Van Lines does not have an FAQ section. While this isn’t the worst offense, it requires consumers to do a bit more legwork (which may deter some customers). Consumers will either have to scour the website or call and speak with a company representative for specific information.
When looking at United Nation Van Lines’ website, consumers may be frustrated with the lack of information. The company claims to be affordable but doesn’t display any pricing information. United Nation Van Lines claims that its customers won’t have to worry about anything, but doesn’t disclose what customers can expect throughout the moving process.
The company fails to mention if customers need to have a deposit ready. While it’s likely this information is given after signing up for a quote, many consumers would prefer this information to be given upfront.
We settled on United Nation Van Lines when moving to South Carolina because the customer service rep was so helpful every time we spoke to her. It made us use them despite a slightly higher quoted price, which did not magically inflate after they had our stuff like it does with some other movers.
My parents asked me to use United Nation Van Lines because they have trusted them with their own moves a number of times over the years. I took their advice and dropped my regular movers. First thing that got me was that their prices were significantly lower than what I had been paying before. Secondly, the service and attention to detail were either the same or slightly better. In light of that and considering that they were right on time for pickup and delivery, I don’t think I will be using my old movers again. A very good move.
