I moved this past Monday and was quite pleased with the two gentlemen that moved me. They were efficient and very friendly. If I were to ever have to move again, I certainly would be giving AB Movers a call. Thanks for a good easy no hassle move. 👍

I had an awesome experience. I was able to get most things done via email. The sales rep reached out and asked our move. I was given a fair estimate, reasonable expectations, and a complete move. I read reviews about this company - I can say from my experience - some people are just picky and not fun to work with. This is a good quality team. The team was comprised of a forman and two additional laborers. Make no mistake - these were not laborers... these were work horses, honest dependable people. I stayed present for 10% of my move. I found things packed, boxes labeled, and a friendly person asking what floor to put my 300 pound washing machine on.In one word: Impressed.Thank you!

These guys were the absolute best! I used them on 3/2/19. They moved me from my third floor apartment to another third floor apartment in the next town over (10 miles away) in under four hours. It even started to rain and they still moved quickly. I was amazed at how quickly they got my apartment emptied. They even arranged and rearranged my living room furniture for me. I was sick with the flu and they got my job done quick, bed set up so I could lay down. I wish I had the extra cash to tip them, as they were hustling for real. I would definitely recommend them to anyone needing moving services.
