"I am so sorry this message was not sent earlier, but I err on "better late than never." In September, my mother moved from Edwardsville, IL to New London, NH. Working with the Federal Company was so pleasant! From the first experience with Ken Weinhoff to my last contact with Shari Malcome, everything went smoothly and professionally. Shari and Ken answered all of my questions quickly and carefully, putting me at ease. Both were attentive and great to work with.
My Mom is 91 and this move was quite an adventure for her as she had lived in her house since 1941, only having moved during WWII. Everyone…the packers, the movers (at both ends of the journey), your contacts…everyone was helpful, courteous and caring. The packers even came in and personally wished her well.
I can't say enough about our positive experience working with your company. I am only sorry it took me so long to write to you and sing your company's praises. Thank you for your attention. "
"Good morning Jennifer, over the past couple weeks I have had the pleasure of doing business with Barb and Diana in your motorcycle shipping dept and just wanted to let you know that both of these women have been a treat to deal with. They have both gone out of there way to accommodate me. Good service is hard to come by these days and it should be recognized and applauded."
Happy holidays, Adam B
"The shipment was delivered on Tuesday and I have been busy going through everything and putting it in its place. No issues for us, other than Amanda not being able to dig through the kitchen boxes fast enough to get out the baking stuff to get going on her Christmas cookies.
Again, Thanks for everything, and all your help! This being my 7th move with Caterpillar and my 5th International, I believe you have been involved in one way or another with every one of them. Your integrity and dedication to the job is amazing, and it means a lot (especially to me!) that you are involved with the process. When I make my next move, I'll be sure that I ask for you.
Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! All the best to you and your family!
"I just wanted to let you know that I had an unbelievable experience with the Federal Allied moving company. I know that I was hesistant at first, but this company exceeded all of my expectations in terms of how a moving company should operate. Please, if any other potential customer is hesistant to use your services, please give them my number or email, because I am extremely, extremely happy with the moving experience."
"Thank you for all your help during our local move in Bloomington. Your company's crew came and took away all the empty boxes from the house yesterday.
You have been very helpful during the process and I commend your communication to keep me on top of what to expect with your company's services during the move and guiding me through the process. The crew that came and helped us with packing, loading/ unloading and unpacking were professional, courteous and did their job very well. I really appreciate your timely help with our move. "

"My wife and I just moved from Illinois to California using Allied and would defintely recommend them. Our drivers Terry and Cheryl Voigt were awesome! They were friendly, helpful and very accommodating. Our relocation coordinator, Kristi Giovanelli, was also very helpful and consistently checked in with us to see how our move was coming along."

"Char contacted me to provide all the information that I needed to have before my move took place. I have moved several times over the years and worked with different moving companies. By far, Federal Allied provided the most impressive and professional service. Mark Dunlap and Char Damery were reliable, informative, and made me feel valued as a customer. Terale, Jai, and James were so careful and particular in loading and unloading my household belongings, I was confident my things would be transported without damage. In my opinion, Federal Allied could not be represented more positively and proudly as a company than by these fine young men."

"I just wanted to say that my recent move with Federal/Allied went smoother than I could imagine.
From getting my estimate from Mike Barclay, communication and scheduling with Shari Malcome, to loading and delivery by Danny Montgomery, the experience and professionalism was exemplary!
Mr. Barclay provided clear explanations and answered all my questions in detail and patience; Ms. Malcome also provided clear explanations, was responsive and diligently kept me in the loop as info was available to her. Mr. Montgomery was timely, polite, very informative and worked incredibly hard (pick-up and delivery went without a hitch and more quickly than expected).
My hats off to you and these wonderful individuals! I will always highly recommend Federal/Allied based on the knowledge/experience/actions of your talented team!"

"My husband, Darren, is a Caterpillar employee, and he and I have been on an International Service Employee assignment for nearly six years, in Bangalore, India. During that time, the East Peoria Federal/Allied team has done its very best to ensure our satisfaction with the company's services, and we want to extend our appreciation to you, for maintaining such a reliable, efficient staff.
In particular, Penny Giacobazzi has gone above and beyond the call of duty, always answering our every question and providing helpful communications, throughout any given process. We are incredibly grateful for her extraordinary dedication, commitment, professionalism, and friendly demeanor. We know Allied has a thankless task, in overseeing so many relocations, and yet Penny has shown tremendous support for us from day one, from the initial packing of our Peoria house and transition overseas to our subsequent domestic move here in Bangalore. When there have been snags on the India side, she has instantly stepped to the plate and coordinated with the local team, to find solutions and smooth the situation. And she's done a fantastic job of organizing the quarterly shipments, which must be a perpetual challenge. Instead of ever just treating us like a number, she brings a personal touch to her efforts and shows her clients the utmost care and respect, including handling e-mails amazingly quickly (despite the large time difference, if we ask a question, we know that Penny will consistently have a reply to us by the next morning at latest — the same for Terry Flynn, who has been wonderful with us as well).
In a world of corporate procedure, it's reassuring to have such great support, and we simply wanted Penny and her team to receive the recognition they deserve, for all their hard work.
Thank you so much"
