How We Got Started

I chose to work in this industry because after graduating from Brandeis University with an economics and business degree, I wanted more. Fascinated with our economic system, after graduation, I began making real estate investments. While I was doing so, I was watching my good friend, Ian MacEachern, forge a living in the moving and storage industry. After five years of hands on research, I formed Real Deal Van Lines!.

We started in this industry in 2006.

We describe our business as Family owned and operated

The movers were polite and knew what they were doing. My moving involved some complications in going from State to State. They handeled everything in a timely manner and I thought the Company’s rates were excellent.

Everyone I talked to and dealt with in this company was knowledgeable, friendly and extremely helpful. The movers that day were great! Fast and friendly. There is nothing more stressful than moving your house and these guys did everything they could to make it go smoothly.

Mitch and Orlando were my movers both on my Boston move-out and NYC move-in. I have dealt with many movers and I was incredibly impressed by their professionalism, care with which they treated my belongings and new apartment, and speed with which they worked. They were also a delight to get to know. Highly recommend!

The three man crew moved all our furniture and then some. They were courteous, professional and personable and a pleasure to work with. They took great care in wrapping and moving items and didn't even leave a mark on our freshly painted walls! Hopefully I never have to move again but if I do I hope these guys are available!

Review by in Peabody, MA
We are in New England, not California as the profile shows. I hired this company to move my elderly mother from Peabody to Rockland. Dave in the office was very nice. He quoted me 677.00 and said this was on the high side so there wouldn't be any surprises at the end, and was inclusive of everything but the tip. Three young men arrived about 9:00. They were very polite and worked quickly. My mother's bed frame had broken several months before. When they went to move it, I discussed it with one of the men and said just to pack it all, and my husband would fix it when he got to my sister's in Rockland (we live in NH so he was traveling separately.) About an hour after the movers left (we had to stay behind to wait for the oxygen company to remove the oxygen machine) my mother said she thought that one of the bed rails was left on the porch. I took a look and indeed it was. I called the cell number the movers gave me, and it went to voice mail. I called my sister to tell her to tell them that they needed to come back to get the railing. (It was long and wouldn't fit in the car.) They said they would take care of it. The bill came to almost 900.00, considerably more than was quoted. I had already tipped them in Peabody in case the oxygen company took longer than expected (which they did) and the movers never returned to get the railing. I called the office and left a message about the additional cost and the piece that was forgotten. Wynita called me back and said that since it was so late in the afternoon she would be in touch with me on Monday (it was 1:30 in the afternoon.) I never heard back from her again. My husband was already on his way to Rockland so he had to turn around and come back to Peabody to pick up the bed rail with his truck. It added hours to our day. I do not recommend this moving company at all. They did not take responsibility for the mistake they made because they didn't want to have to go through the Boston traffic. If my husband hadn't come down my elderly, ill mother would have been sleeping on a mattress on the floor. The bill came to much more than they quoted, so don't believe them when they say "no suprises." I still have not heard back from them and the move was in April.
Response by Real Deal Van Lines, Inc.: Yvonne, actually your contract lists a labor range of 4-5 hours which would put your total estimate between $677-$806. Your total bill came out to $785, which you have a carbon copy of and with your one hour deposit, you paid a total of $656 on move day. I am confused as to how that is close to $900 as you mention. Also, you did not want to pay the additional cost of sitting in traffic to come back and pick up the bed frame so you told the crew to keep heading to the unload. We have tried reaching out to you via phone numerous times but you have not called back. We would like to resolve this but it would need to start with you calling our office at 1-800-919-7382.

I have hired but will use on June 12. Then I will give a complete review. Customer service was helpful for arranging a better date for my move. Definitely I will say more later. Moving company can be a bit tricky. Moving MA to NH.
Response by Real Deal Van Lines, Inc.: Thank you for using Real Deal Van Lines to complete your relocation. We hope you were satisfied with your move and please keep us in mind if you ever need moving services in the future!

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
