Customer reviews

Deanna, Washington, DC

"Having moved multiple (and I mean multiple...like, 24 times. Hey, I open new apartment buildings for a living...) I am more or less a pro at this stuff. Making a last-minute decision to move, I called Alex on a Tuesday and had him scheduled and ready to go for Sunday of the same week. He offered me a great rate, and was extremely courteous in assisting me with getting all the plans laid out.  When moving day came, I couldn't have been more impressed. After arriving on time, the guys laid protective mats on my floor and wrapped any door jams/potential snags in padding before they even starting moving my stuff. Man can they move! The huge mountain of boxes started dwindling before my very eyes. I was impressed with both the care they took with my items and the speed in which they accomplished everything. They also shrink-wrapped my couch and bed, and any additional items that needed the extra TLC. I would HIGHLY recommend 22nd Century Van Lines (and do to all my residents!) and will be using them again for any future moves. Thanks, Alex and team for making move day not quite so crazy! :)"

Stacy & Dave, Kensington, MD

"Working in the greater DC area, I used to seek estimates from moving companies to relocate staff overseas. I did what so many do and turned to big name companies for estimates. However, when it finally came time to move myself, I looked locally to 22nd Century Van Lines. 

22nd Century is cost effective and reliable. The crew were available both on and prior to moving day to answer any questions I had; and I had many. They eased my concerns about time constraints by arriving early and ready to go! The moving team went above and beyond the call of duty by tackling items in our hard-to-reach attic and hauling items up stairs - lots of stairs - in our new residence. And they skillfully navigated corners to ensure our sofa made it through our narrow entry. Most significantly, nothing was lost or damaged. 

Take it from us, our family has moved five times in the past seven years, both domestically and overseas; 22nd Century is the way to go!"

Kathie, New York

"Trying to orchestrate the move of my condo in Arlington via phone from my home in NY was getting very stressful until I called Alex at 22nd Century. Because I didn't have much furniture, I rented a 16' truck myself and just needed some guys to help move the heavy stuff. "No problem," Alex said. What a relief! I was only giving him 3 days’ notice. Every other place I called required at least a week's notice. Alex's professionalism over the phone assured me that I had made the right choice.  The morning of the move, I received a call from Wil, one of the movers. They had arrived 5 minutes BEFORE their scheduled time! Amazing in this day and age! I headed down to my building's loading dock where I met Wil and Mark. They were friendly, professional, and efficient during the entire process. They strategically loaded and packed the truck to help ensure a safe, shift-free drive. It worked! Even with me behind the wheel of that 16' truck!  I couldn't have been happier with the service they provided! Thank you, Alex and team!"

Qasim, Alexandria, VA

"The two guys you sent for our move were simply AWESOME!! I am very impressed with your company. They were at my house on time, very courteous and a blessing. Having a 2 year old child and both my fiancé and I working... I was stressed out. Your workers wrapped everything and worked very hard. You can definitely tell that they were trained very well.  I underestimated the amount of stuff we had so it took 4 hours and the additional hour you charge for transit.. I gladly paid it.  People need to know that 22nd Century is truly....RELIABLE."

Jen & Anders, Alexandria, VA 

"We have never had a move go this smoothly! We've moved all over the world and the U.S. and Alex and his crew were friendly and efficient. They showed up early and quickly wrapped items that needed extra protection. They were careful with our furniture and boxes, and moved us in record time. Moving is exhausting, but these guys made it a breeze. We will definitely use them again when we move in the future. Thanks guys!"

Candice, Washington, DC

"We had an excellent experience with Alex and his team. Everyone was completely professional and conscientious. Prior to our move they delivered the necessary supplies so we wouldn't have to drive out to pick them up. On moving day, the team was on time and worked hard from beginning to end. They were extremely careful with all of our things, very clean, and quick without being careless. The prices were reasonable. and they made a stressful experience much less so! I highly recommend them."

"We’ve moved lots of times. This was far and away the best move ever. Nothing got broken, no one got hurt, no doors had to be removed; there weren’t even any nicks in the paint. It cost way less than I expected a professional move to cost. Fantastic!"

Michael, Springfield, VA

"I expected our cross-town move to take all day. Was I ever wrong! The team showed up on time, did a quick walk-through, and our stuff started heading out the door. We were amazed as we watched the sofa that was so hard to move in was effortlessly maneuvered out the door. It was the same case for the upright freezer. They had our stuff in place in the new house before I had expected them to be done at the old house. Everything arrived in great shape. There were no nicks, dents, or breakages. The price was great. We hope never to self-move again!"

Raj, McLean, VA

I recently did two moves with 22nd Century Van Lines. One was commercial for our office and the other was for moving to our new home. My interaction with Alex Pinedo has completely changed my perception of the moving industry. Alex and his team are real professionals who come on time and get the job done in a professional manner. Very polite and hard working crew. Their charges were exactly as quoted. Everything was disclosed upfront. There were no surprises or hidden charges.  Alex went out of his way to accommodate the move at a short notice. I can't imagine both the moves going any better. Highly recommended!
