  1. Thank You David and Sentry Van Lines!!!
    By Jessica Garcia - May 16, 2019

    We just landed in Boca Raton, Florida yesterday from Beverly Hills, California and we are officially settled into our new home. This whole moving cross country experience was exhausting from top to bottom, but our representative David made this experience 10x easier than expected. We received 3 total quotes and we chose Sentry Van Lines because of the thoroughness, accuracy and professionalism that was brought by David and his company. We are doing this review for you David because you deserve it Bud! Sentry Van Lines did everything as told to us and we received the experience as stated. I must thank customer service and dispatch for assisting us on every phone call as well. You guys did a tremendous job I wish I could tip your representative and team that we didnt meet. We couldnt of asked for a better experience and we thank you endlessly. You are getting all of my employees relocation packages David!! My family and I are thrilled to be in our new home to enjoy our new chapter in life. Thanks again Sentry! We appreciate our experience more than you know.

  2. Beware
    By Ewr - April 11, 2019

    I started out this year with a disappointing visit to my doctor. After receiving this news my husband decided to transfer to east coast to be closer to family. I don’t tell you my story for pity, I tell to let you know that all families have struggles and when you throw in a move along with that you have added stress. I like many others tried to save some money and looked and got quotes from over 20 movers. Please and I repeat please do not fall victim to this company. If it sounds to good to be true it is. I was contacted by Henry Stripe from Sentry Van lines on February 1st and was told they his company was a 5 star full service moving company. He went on to tell me that they could save me money by putting my stuff on a truck with others going to the east coast and it could save me 60% . He asked me about what I had to move and based on answers gave me a quote. I paid $612.21 to his company for a deposit on February 2. I was told that someone would call me to confirm time that movers would arrive the week before the move. I never received that call. I called Casey from Sentry the day before the movers were to be there and explained that I had not heard from anyone. She seemed clueless but called and confirmed someone was coming. The day of my move 4 men arrived at my home and Tony the lead informs me that he is from A touch of Class and he will be doing my move….which is a shock because I was told that sentry van lines would be doing it and they were a 5 star company…I would never hire a one star company as being a military wife and moving a lot you get familiar with which company is good. He then went onto explain that the move would cost 4061 instead of 1638. I was floored…..I figured it may cost a little more especially once I looked at what he had written …I had about 30 more boxes then in his original list – small moving boxes from Home Depot but never expected that. I had NO couches or dining tables, only one queen set of mattresses and a queen bed and one daybed no mattress, 2 large bookcases. I had to go along with the move because we had to leave. After reading reviews from these companies I see this is a common occurrence. They low ball you knowing most have to move due to time frames. This is a common bait and switch. In the contract with Sentry it say to call if company says a different price so I did but was told by Casey ….”You must have more stuff” and she was extremely rude. I can’t tell you how emotional and sick to my stomach I was. Tony kept telling me I don’t know what your problem is this is how much a move cost..he was completely rude and disrespectful. I was to give them 500$ in cash after they packed truck but was told that I had to give a lot more because cost of move went up. All I had on me was 700$ so that is what I gave. After they left I tried to contact the owner Henry Stripe and was told many times that he was out of town. My stuff was on its way then I start to receive text messages from Tony threatening late charges and putting my stuff up for auction in 48 hours if I don’t pay. Again I try to speak to Mr. Stripe but am told by a very rude Casey that he is out of town after I received an email from him stating he will be back in town on Monday…this was Wednesday. (I have saved all text ,e-mails and call communications from both companies.) After repeated times Mr Stripe reaches me and says he will take care of situation and offers 100$ refund of the 612 that I paid his company to move me…even though he did not move me, he just pond me off to another company. I never received the 100$ nor any more help from Sentry Van Line because he was tired of dealing with me.
    Finally our stuff was deliver over a month later than our move in date. A gentleman and his wife delivered stuff to my garage, they said their help they had hired had not arrived and due to my husband being TDY I carried the majority of the stuff upstairs. The gentleman carried a bookcase then as most of the things were in the garage two men show up to help and are able to carry mattress and other book case up the stair. Again I send a copy of this letter to Sentry and let them know of the ordeal. I am told that someone will contact me….still no contact.

  3. Living up to their reputation
    By Quigly121 - March 6, 2019

    This was my 8th time moving interstate and the 5th time I used a moving company and one thing I’ve found, across the board, is that no move ever happens as prescribed.
    Sh*t Happens when you’re dragging a 3 bedroom house across 1900 miles of open road. There are delays, broken items, and misunderstandings. While this move was no different in that respect, the way the Sentry Van Lines handled the situation was 172% above and beyond the call of duty. My coordinator, Dakota, stuck with me the entire time answering phone calls outside of office hours. Casey the customer service manager was sweet as tupelo honey, and the rest of the team worked in a seemingly effortless way to correct whatever issues that arose. At the end of the day, I would absolutely use Sentry again and recommend them to everyone and anyone who’s moving from state to state.

  4. Best moving experience ever
    By harlock6 - March 6, 2019

    I recently contracted Sentry Van Lines for my move from Michigan to Florida for a job relocation. Based on some past experiences with moving i was a little nervous, but when the movers showed up i immediately felt at ease. They were very respectful and professional and handled my belongings like they had value and importance. Was not immediate but was in a timely manner, but the representative that set up my move did inform me that it could take up to ten days, I received my things in 7 days, safe and without damage. I will definitely recommend this company to all of my friends and family.

  5. Unapologetic Extortionists
    By Jeff - February 25, 2019

    Aren’t really a mover at all, and you’ll spend weeks of your life trying to deal with the mover it they actually hire. They’ll double your estimate right before the move ($3200 to $6600). They’ll shake you down at every turn ($600 wrapping fee, $700 shuttle fee, $2000 tacked on by the second rate mover they hired—all in addition to doubling the estimate). And then, when you try to get justice, they’ll have their weasley little man, Henry Stripe, point out that their contract prevents you from filing a claim anywhere but Billings, Montana.
    Game on, b!t¢he’$.

  6. Worst Moving experience ever
    By gyzdmgqy - February 16, 2019

    Please read all the reviews (especially those bad reviews) before you make the decision to hire this company. This is by far the worst moving company I’ve ever dealt with. I have hired Sentry Van Line to move from New York to California in 2018 Dec. My job number is A5259499.
    • The so-called five-star company will outsource your job to a ZERO star company.
    • I provided full inventory with additional 30% margin. They quoted me for about 3.3K initially and on delivery the total cost goes up to 7484.92$.
    • They initially picked up on Dec. 15 2018. They couldn’t even tell us an estimate delivery date until January and even that the actual delivery date was Jan.17 2018 much later than they estimated. We have been sleeping on the floor without any furniture and stuff for more than 30 days!
    • Many pieces of our furniture got damaged. They made a big hole on the back of my wife’s favorite Wardrobe and broke our coat rack into two places. Small scratches on almost all of our furniture. If you trust their insurance, then good luck with you!
    • They keep lying to you on everything such as estimated delivery date, pick up time, number of movers, insurance policy, final price.
    • On delivery, they force me to pay additional 650$ because they thought my neighborhood cannot fit their 18-wheel truck but another day another 18-wheel truck just parked outside my neighbor’s house with no problem.
    • They used that 650$ to hire a local moving company and then they didn’t do anything and let the two guys do all the unloading work.
    • By evening, they said the headlight of their 18-wheel is broken so they have to leave early to finish another several unloads. Can you believe a professional company has headlight broken? And they didn’t finish the assembly work for my furniture. We have to assemble 1 table, 4 desks, 1 TV stand, several chairs, etc. We paid thousands of dollars for doing the job by ourselves!
    • Three of the boxes are fully wet. Only god knows what happened during the moving process.
    • They messed up our carpet on delivery. Everywhere is black spots.
    • When they picked up, one guy even damaged my wall with my headboard. They are so careless.
    I hope you find my review helpful.

    By cflesher2 - December 27, 2018

    I hired Sentry to move my son from the east coast to Seattle. They stood me up seven times, they told me many lies as excuses but the truth is they broker their moves and could not service my area. They agreed to give me a refund, but instead charged my bank account again, then told me it was a vendor recharge error, and would take 7-14 business days to refund. I had to file fraud charges with my bank to get my money back. STEER CLEAR OF THIS COMPANY.

  8. Sentry Van Lines sales reps are liars & their movers are thieves
    By PeriPuckett - October 31, 2018

    Don’t use Sentry Van Lines if you’re looking for transparency. I dealt with endless lies, poor communication and mistakes on the part of the sales agent at Sentry. Was assured I was being moved by a 5-star company. A 1-star rated company showed up for the move. Once the delivery was made in FL I found several boxes that had obviously been opened, gone through and re-taped. Several expensive items were stolen. Do not believe anything the rep from Sentry tells you – including your quoted price because you will continue to be lied to and charged by the agencies that complete the move and that initial quote will climb significantly & unexpectedly.

  9. Perfect
    By randy sampson - September 25, 2018

    There have been many times that I have had to move. I have had good ones and bad ones. This time I had an amazing move. I was walked through the process and my hand was held by Lindsay the entire time. Pick up went smooth, delivery was very quick and there were no issues and nothing was damaged. Thank you all very much for making this a wonderful process.

  10. Wonderful
    By reese johnson - September 24, 2018

    Reputable company. Amanda did a great job on booking and explained everything what we could expect. Guys came on time, where polite and knew what they where doing. Moved all my stuff without scratch and damage. We have moved from our three bedroom house to 3 bedroom house and we had a lot of furniture to be moved. Foreman George and 3 other guys did it excellent. Definitely recommend them if you need moving services.

  11. Blessed people
    By Jen Sutton - September 16, 2018

    Wonderful packers! My movers were professionals. They were courteous and polite. All 3 were great at their jobs and are an asset to the company. They made sure to ask questions and were very polite with our questions and requests. They made packing day go smoothly!

  12. Thankful for sure
    By Larry Iniz - September 16, 2018

    Sentry Van Lines called us to complete our estimate. They have experience representatives that really know what they’re talking about. We also had a major van line come out to our home and they turned out to be thousands of dollars more for the same service. Not only did we like alliance better but they had been in business for longer. We had many questions from the beginning of this process and anytime we called the girls in the customer service were happy to get us to where we needed to go. They even arrange for us to have our vehicle shipped and scheduled It to arrive the same day as our furniture. They wrapped and then wrapped everything and placed it in the rooms we desired. Since the move we have given your name out to a few of our friends and family and we hope that they call in the near future. We’ve had a few bad moves in the past and we’re lucky to have you to break the streak. I guess the moral of the story is to do your research on the company you work with because many others are not who they claim to be. This company is the real deal completely legit and checks out on all levels.

  13. The best!
    By Jean Kard - September 16, 2018

    We contracted Sentry Van Lines to handle our move. We found the company online after reading feedback on a couple of review sites. Most everyone we read talked about great customer service and a straight forward business department. We had to make sure the company we ultimately would use would
    not have any last minute trickery. We were impressed from the first phone
    call how polite and knowledgeable the sales representative was. He was very
    mindful of our situation and we were able to set up a move well within our
    budget. We had certain days we were hoping to reserve and in the end we got
    them. As anybody would understand we had a lot of things going on outside
    of speaking with a. Moving company so trusting Sentry Van Lines with our
    possessions was a big deal for us. But in the end everything went great.
    The move took place as expected with no bumps in the road. We are happy we
    spent time finding this company and hopefully our feedback helps the next
    person in need.

  14. Excellent
    By Don Jay - September 16, 2018

    After talking to what seemed like every moving company in the United States we reserved our move with Sentry Van Lines. They provided us with many helpful resources to check out every mover we spoke to. They also took time to break down the estimate as well as the contract itself so we felt comfortable before making any type of payment to them. We needed to make sure all the license info was up to date and they were legally able to provide an interstate service. After shopping around the price we got from them was the best price overall for the most amount of space. They also arranged for us to have our vehicle shipped and scheduled to arrive the same time as our home. They made this a stress free time for us and discounted our move as much as they could. Overall we are very satisfied with the service provided and find them to be a reputable mover worthy of a 5 star rating.

  15. Just great
    By Hillary Franks - September 14, 2018

    My hat goes off to this amazing company. You all not only proved and showed your true colors when it came to the move especially by not breaking anything but the price was so fair for the services provided.

    I want to send a big thank you and a huge virtual hug to the whole staff. Thank your entire company for dealing with my brother and I. Kudos to you all.

  16. Perfect
    By Eli Sherman - September 14, 2018

    Most of my moves have been stressful. This time Tim helped me calm my nerves reassuring me that everything would be fine. When the move was completed, yes he was so right. Thank you Tim and staff!

  17. Just great
    By RickeyPackson - September 14, 2018

    I’ll give Sentry Van Lines five stars for their service. When I contacted them, they requested for the details of my movement and they assigned Tyler to my movement.

    He was very helpful and took me through the process of moving. The movers came earlier than we agreed and they patiently waited until we came back from visiting friends. Immediately we came back, they started moving our things and they were very efficient in getting everything wrapped up, padded, and moved. They did a veryvgood job and deserve the best rating. I will recommend and use again if needed.

  18. Grrrrreat
    By Jose Enters - September 13, 2018

    They arrived on time , navigated and secured a tricky alley parking spot, and immediately got to work. Practically leaping off the truck to get started. They worked fast and with careful precision, asking before handling fragile or awkward items, and skillfully loading my items onto the truck.

    These guys were a pleasure to work with and I can say this move went smoothly because of their personable character, ability and integrity.
    I would hire and recommend Sentry Van Lines 100 times!

  19. Unreal
    By Rich Daniels - September 13, 2018

    I just completed my second move with Sentry Van Lones and once again a Flawless move. These people are top-notch and I will never use anyone else. The team is amazing and actually seem to enjoy their work and they all have a great sense of humor to boot, which made what started out as a very stressful move much more pleasant. AAA+++++ happy happy customer.

  20. Quite perfect
    By Pattythompson9199 - September 13, 2018

    Sentry Van Lines helped me move my stuff from D.C. to New York last week and they did an amazing job. Peter and Justin were very accommodating with the special items I had and paid special attention so that everything was moved with care. My stuff arrived well in time and the off-loading was careful and fast as well. I would highly recommend using this service and if I ever move again, I will be sure to use them again.

  21. Great team
    By Steve Rush - September 13, 2018

    I had a perfect experience with Sentry Van Linea. I called the day before and was able to get a Sunday appointment. The movers were on time, careful with all the belongings, really nice, and the most affordable quote I got.

    I would use them again and again and recommend to anyone I know.
    Strongly recommend this company.

  23. Really great
    By HeathKimms - September 12, 2018

    Sentry Van Lines helped me move recently from Iowa to Pennsylvania. Being in HR I know full well how important a good comsybis. Sentry was incredibly thorough, incredibly organized and did their absolute best–almost to the point of exhaustion–everything they could to make sure they had every detail looked over more than 3, 4, even 5 times…and then a FINAL check. I mean, they were thorough, and when you’re moving, you don’t want even ONE surprise.

    I really was overwhelmed with my move as it was a company relocation and I knew I had a budget to work within, so when I found Sentry and began working with them, I didn’t want to even shop around because going through inventory is exhausting. Lucky for me, they were perfect from the beginning. Because I didn’t have the time or energy to try and shop around, I was putting my move in their hands and they delivered….literally. I’d recommend them as they do everything they can to keep you calm, protected, and incredibly informed so there are no surprises. Job well done!

  24. Great Job!
    By Kim Lands - September 11, 2018

    I have moved several times in my life locally and out of state so I know what to expect when it comes to moving companies. I have had good and bad experiences and could say at this point know a thing or two about the moving industry. I was referred to Sentry Van Lines by one of my colleagues who also used them for her move. My sales rep Misty and I discussed my items to be moved over the phone. I was pleasantly surprised by the level of detail in all of her questions and she reminded me of items that even I forgot I had.

    Their pricing was a little strange to me because in all the times I have moved I have never received a guaranteed binding price. I am used to paying for the weight of my shipment and did not really know how to respond to this dramatic change. After explaining this to Misty she put all my concerns to rest with a valid explanation that made a lot of sense to me. The moving day came and team showed up on time as scheduled. They performed the job at a very fast pace while at the same time staying very courteous and professional. I have a 3 bedroom house and was absolutely shocked that they finished packing and loading all in one day. I was planning on this being a very long two days for me but it ended up being much faster which left me absolutely thrilled!

    My move was from Dallas to Chicago and I was expecting to wait for my belongings 3-10 days as promised by Misty. Well the Sentry team surprised me once again when I got a phone call 2 days after the pickup occurred stating that my delivery would take place the next morning. The crew at the delivery was just as courteous and professional as the team in Dallas and they finished the entire job within 8 hours. I was all moved in with my furniture placed where I instructed and was absolutely thrilled how pleasant this entire experience had turned out. I did not let the guys leave before giving them each a very nice tip I might add but it was for a job well done. Thank you Sentry Van Lines if I ever need to move again you are the company of my choice!

  25. Amazing
    By Chad Henderson - September 11, 2018

    I was searching the internet high and low for a mover to complete my upcoming move from south Florida to New Jersey. One of the first companies that reached out to me was this one, Sentry Van Lines.

    The salesperson that initially touched base with me was very friendly and informative. He told me everything I needed to know about the moving process and about the industry in general. He was able to provide me with a free, binding quote based on the inventory I gave him over the phone. The price was extremely reasonable compared to the other quotes I received. I decided to book with gateway moving and storage, and I was not disappointed! They showed up at my house when they guaranteed they would be there, and they disassembled, moved, packed, strapped and fastened in all of my most important possessions very carefully and with a lot of love, as if it was their own belongings.

    They made the big trip from south Florida to New Jersey in a timely manner, within the delivery window they promised. When they got to our new house, they unloaded, reassembled and carefully placed all of our belongings in the new house without so much as a scratch on anything! The dispatch and customer service team were in touch with my family and I throughout the entire process from beginning to end and made this all work like a charm. I recommend anyone use gateway moving and storage! Especially my friends and family and/or anyone with a difficult or long distance move!

    P.S. My move date was not firm and Sentry Van Lines provided me with storage in their state of the art storage facility, which gave us ample time to finalize our move date. Thanks Sentry Van Lines!

  26. Thankful
    By Craig Rhett - September 10, 2018

    We have moved a couple of dozen times in the past decade due to being in the Air Force. This time Sentry Van Lines treated us like family and made sure that we were handled from beginning to end. We are very thankful that we chose Sentry 2 be our Movers from Georgia to New Jersey. Thank you everyone!

  27. Great move
    By Evan Perez - September 10, 2018

    Not much that can be said other than these guys were EXCELLENT! The process is supposedly stressful, but Kim and her crew that moved us were so amazing and helpful. I dont know how else to describe Sentry Van Lines other than perfect.

  28. Smooth
    By Charlie Murphy - September 10, 2018

    What an amazing move we just had. Thank you Jerry for getting our move arranged and being so kind in a stressful time. I will for sure be recommending you all to everyone. Thank you!

  29. Great
    By Bill Wilson - September 10, 2018

    Sentry van lines did a fantastic job for me. They moved us from New York to Florida. They tried to lighten my stress and were fully successful in their endeavor. When they arrived, we couldn’t able to pack completely. So they helped a lot. Sentry van lines crews have been friendly and did a lot of fun with my kids. The guys were simultaneously professional in their respective duties. The delivery window was nicely followed. They valued my every penny. I guess if anyone calls them for their important move then they don’t have to regret.

    This was by far the best experience that I have ever gone through when it comes to moving. There was no hidden charges or fees, there were no punches that were thrown after they picked us up. Just the upmost respect and professionalism. Thank you to the Sentry Van Lines team and family. I highly recommend using them if you are moving.

  33. Wonderful move
    By Larry Cline - September 5, 2018

    I am very satisfied with the customer service and professionalism of Sentry Van Lines. When we heard that we were moving I instantly got anxiety. I have heard not so good things about the companies that are in charge of moving your personal belongings. I needed to do some research of exactly what I needed and what I wanted when hiring a moving company. After Much research I decided to go with the first call. When we spoke with them initially I was turned onto them because they were no nonsense. They gave us all of the answers that we needed and not just what we wanted to hear. Everything was quick and painless from the pick up to the drop off. They were on time and we didn’t have to wait for anything it was the exact dates that they had said. Moving can be stressful enough and when you’re dealing with a company that is not professional it can ruin the whole thing for you. With first call we had a great experience and we will definitely be using them in the future

  34. This was easy!

    This has been an overall great experience moving. I have gone through some tough moves in the past decade with my company. Sarah made sure that we were taken care of the entire process. On move day we were called and it was just what we needed, a little reassurance that we were being relocated by professionals. Thank you Sarah and all the staff that made our transition easy and stress free.

  37. Very happy
    By Mrdavesuper3 - September 4, 2018

    I was in an uncomfortable situation after someone broke into my apartment. I needed help with a last minute move and Sentry Van Lines came through. They were extremely professional and helpful in getting me out quickly and into a new condo.

    Thanks to Vinnie and Danielle for their exceptional service. I highly recommend their moving company

  39. Pretty good service
    By Tbaker21 - September 1, 2018

    I hired sentry van lines for my move from va to wa. I make a lot of moves around the country and have used a lot of different moving companies. from start to finish this company was very professional and kind. The movers were carful with my items and they arrived on time I will most likely use this company again in near future.
