National Van Lines does not have flat-rate pricing. Like most moving companies, it will give you a custom quote based on the distance of your move, the contents you are moving, your current and future location, which additional services you may require, and other factors.
National Van Lines has a little bit of a lengthy moving process. Just to get a price quote, you’ll need to fill out a basic online form. Then a representative will call you back to discuss all the details of your move. Once they have all the information, the rep can generate a price quote for you based on the details provided. The good news is you are not under any obligation to take the price quote once it’s generated. If you like the tune, you can sign up. Otherwise, you can just walk away.
Once you’ve decided on the move, National Van Lines will arrange the pickup date for your move. How things proceed from here depends on which services you are paying for. If you opt for the full-service moving option, trained movers will come and pack up your home for you, including wrapping and padding items to prevent damage during transit. Or you can handle that side of the move on your own. Either way, your items will be loaded up, transported, and unloaded at your new location.
