  • About Us & Our Cross Country Moving Services


For more than two decades, Colonial Van Lines has provided full-service long-distance moving, packing, storage, and corporate relocation for American movers. Our South Florida moving company was founded in 2003 and maintains its 50,000 square foot offices in Pompano Beach, Florida.

In 2023, Colonial has nearly 250 employees nationwide with warehouse / office locations in New York, New Jersey, North Carolina, Texas, and California. We are a family-owned and operated moving company that focuses on long-distance / interstate moves for residential, commercial, and corporate relocation throughout the U.S.

Professional Moving Company Training

Colonial prides itself on moving logistics and productivity technologies to keep costs down. Those savings are directly passed onto our long-distance moving customers. We are also committed to safety, which is why we voluntarily get Department of Transportation (DOT) inspections done every 60 days on our moving company fleet. The DOT requirement is 12 months.

We combine all of this with expert moving professionals who are trained in the “Colonial” way of service, professionalism, and care through CVLU – Colonial Van Lines University. CVLU is our enhanced on-site training facility, which features an entire staged home including fully equipped kitchen, dining, bedroom, living room, etc., and even lodging for our out-of-town trainees. This allows our staff to experience hands-on training on handling all types of household furniture and items.

We’ll pack it, stack it, but never crack it ®

Moving Company Roots

Colonial Van lines was founded by the Disorbo family, but the story starts in the 1980’s when Mr. Disorbo borrowed $2,000 from his dad and began helping Broward County families move with his truck and limited storage in his garage in Coral Springs, FL. The Colonial Van Lines founder was 21 years old. The moving company innovator opened his first moving company, The Right Move in 1988. After that, the Colonial Van Lines founder is credited with creating the moving company brokerage business by closing the gap between home moving customers and independent movers, whose equipment is often idle and costly. The moving expert and entrepreneur also leveraged his analytical thinking to help start several successful moving companies that are still flourishing today.

Three decades later, Mr. Disorbo is still innovating with his newest Florida moving company – Moving Squad. The South Florida moving company offers intrastate and local home-apartment moving, as well as storage for government, corporate, military, and private clients. The dream of Moving Squad is to be the local moving company leader in over 250 U.S. cities through franchise offerings.

Today, our national moving company continues to grow with technology and a “green” desire to transform our fleet of trucks / trailers to all be electric by 2028. At the same time, Colonial has gone paperless with an industry-first COLONIAL MOVING APP. The smartphone APP can complete a virtual moving estimate in just a few minutes.

Top-Rated Nationwide Mover

With nearly 25 years under our belts, more long-distance customers are trusting our moving company for out-of-state moves. We’ve learned a lot after two decades in the moving and storage industry and have the skill, technology, and genuine desire to make your moving experience easy while protecting your home possessions.

Professional moving company is a relative term, and many companies advertise this slogan liberally. However, professional moving is a designation that is earned by consistently achieving the same result and manner to which customers can count on every time they hire you. Colonial Van Lines is that nationwide mover. We are a licensed and insured long-distance mover who continually receives high marks from trusted sources like Moving.com, Forbes Advisor, Trust Pilot, U.S. News & World Report, and more.
