We do not recommend Viktoria Vanlines and will not use them in the future.
We engaged with Viktoria Vanlines for our last move because of some positive reviews on HomeStars' s website. However, we realized after our move that we overpaid. When an organization/employer is paying (i.e relocation), Viktoria's high cost is irrelevant to the people moving. In our case, we paid 100% out of our pockets ($2000 - this includes $100 tips).
Our move was a consolidated one because it was considered a "small" move (this means multiple pick up and drop off in order to fill the truck).
We were told that the truck will be at our home at 8.00am but did not show up until 2.45pm. Had I not taken the initiative to phone, I would not have known that the driver was scheduled to pick up a load 45 minutes away from our home at 10.30am (which means it would have been impossible for him to be at our place at 8.00am)
Upon delivery, we were told 12.00 noon the next day but the driver arrived at 12.45pm (again was not told of the lateness until I initiated the phone call). A bit frustrating....
We had no dishes, glasses or breakables - just a few large bedroom items and boxes so we expected the move to be quick and simple - nothing to dismantle! We felt that too many hours were wasted on non productive folding blankets, placing tags on items (which we paid for).
The dynamics of this lucrative business is complicated and the right hand does not seem to know what the left hand is doing (this is my perception based on our personal experience). There is (1) a sales person/rep., (2) an office clerk who charged my credit card, (3) a driver and (4) finally a customer service person. We had interaction with all 4 groups and information varied significantly!!
