Overall Score: 7/10

Armstrong Relocation has typical pricing for the industry. It doesn’t charge extra fees, but it doesn’t throw in perks either.

Reviews show some complaints about damaged items, but the company also earns lots of positive reviews. We recommend focusing on the reviews for your local Armstrong moving office. Just Google “Armstrong Relocation” plus your city, and then look at Google and Yelp reviews.

Armstrong Relocation and its partners are properly registered and insured. All locations seem to have standard safety and complaint records.

Bottom line: Armstrong Relocation is a solid choice for local moves, assuming you have a location nearby. Most of its locations have good customer reviews and excellent service records.

If you use Armstrong for long-distance and international moves, you’ll end up working with one of its partner companies, such as United Van Lines and Mayflower Movers. These partners are legitimate services that also have good reputations.

Of course, everyone has different needs during their move. So to get personalized recommendations (and inside rates), we recommend connecting with a moving broker.

Armstrong Relocation: In-Depth Breakdown

Value: 6/10

Full disclosure: we haven’t been able to get a custom moving quote from Armstrong Relocation yet. But based on our research, Armstrong prices are in line with industry standards. So expect a local move, for example, to cost around $1,700 (the average cost according to HomeAdvisor).

Your actual Armstrong quote will depend on your location, move date, and selected services. Armstrong offers everything from basic loading and transport to full-service moves with packing and appliance reassembly. You can even get staging services through Armstrong. Just keep in mind that you’ll pay more for these extra services.

Also, expect Armstrong international moves to cost more than local or long-distance moves. That higher cost isn’t just a matter of distance ― it also has to do with how complicated international moving can be.

Fortunately, Armstrong makes it easy to set up a virtual survey of your home to get a quote for your move. That personalized quote will make it easier to see if Armstrong is a good value for you.

⚡️Quick tip: Moving quotes are highly customized, so what you see advertised on company websites isn’t always what you get. We recommend reaching out to an independent moving broker to request one or more quotes so you can compare options and get the best fit and value.

Customer Experience: 7/10

Armstrong Relocation offers a pretty average moving experience, based on customer feedback.

On Angi, for example, Armstrong Relocation earns a 4.8 out of 5. And several Armstrong moving locations earn at least 3 out of 5 stars on Yelp.

Most customers say Armstrong moving is efficient and professional. We saw lots of praise for careful movers, helpful moving coordinators, and excellent customer service. Plus, several reviews say Armstrong cost them less than the competition.

We did see some negative Armstrong Relocation reviews too. Customers mostly complained about damage to personal items, higher-than-expected final costs, and minor damage to homes. Those are pretty standard complaints for a moving company, and we didn’t see anything unusual or alarming.

Your personal experience will depend on your local Armstrong moving company, but we expect you to have a decent move if you use Armstrong Relocation.

Credibility: 8/10

Armstrong moving locations appear to have all their ducks in a row. Each location is registered with the U.S. Department of Transportation (U.S. DOT) and has active insurance.

Most Armstrong moving and storage locations haven't had complaints or accidents within the past few years. The locations that have had some complaints or accidents have very few ― well within normal numbers for a moving company.

Armstrong Relocation partners with United Van Lines for long-distance moves. United also complies with industry standards for DOT registration and insurance. It earns a satisfactory safety rating from the DOT.

United Van Lines does have more complaints than any Armstrong moving company location, but that makes sense because the company does more moves. Also, the complaint numbers and types aren’t unusual.
