On the Trinity River between Dallas and Fort Worth is the flourishing city of Flower Mound, Texas—beautiful, high-energy, convenient to everything . . . named, yes, for a 12. 5-acre flower-bedecked mound in the center of town. With its population of 76,030, how does the city with the scenic name manage to combine its dynamic economy with a family feel? By growing thoughtfully.

Within the city’s “smart growth” urban planning, Flower Mound’s rapid industrial expansion contributes naturally to wider economic development, and the rising tide lifts all things in this buoyant city. D Magazine ranked Flower Mound number eight in its list of desirable Dallas suburbs.

Factor in nearby DFW International Airport and Grapevine, and Flower Mound is one of the best places in Texas to live, work and play.

A Little More Flower Mound History

Flower Mound is named for a real mound in its city center, rising 650 feet above sea level. In the 1840s, the city was named both for the mound and for the sea of wildflowers poured across it. On February 27, 1961, Flower Mound was incorporated in Denton County. Today, on land fed by the Trinity and nearby rivers and lakes, more than 400 varieties of plants and flowers—including Bluestem, Indian Grass, Switch Grass and wildflowers—grow on the famous mound.

Our family had to move a senior into a smaller home. Three moves were required. One to transition him from his four bedroom home into a one bedroom apartment. One to transition the remaining furniture from his large home to a different family member’s home. And another to move a piano and several large pieces of furniture and appliances within the final home. Each experience with AB moving was extremely impressive. We had three different teams for the three different moves. Every teammate was highly trained and careful. They moved everything we asked quickly. We never felt we overpaid for an hour because they worked so diligently. Watching three teams perform so well gives me a lot of reassurance about the entire rest of the company, honestly. 10/10. They worked super hard and we tipped well. Overall great experience.

I highly recommend AB Moving Co. I must admit, at first I was somewhat apprehensive about using a moving company for my move into my apartment. But now I am very happy that I did. Eddie and his crew arrived promptly to my storage facility. The three-man crew was very polite, friendly and hard-working. They knew they were on the clock so they did not waste time or my money by messing around. Eddie and his crew were careful to wrap all of my furniture carefully as there would be no damages during the move. When they departed, the crew was quick to arrive to my apartment without wasting precious time driving around "getting lost". They helped my wife and I set up our furniture and washer and dryer and organized our boxes as directed. Eddie and his workmates actually finished within the two hour minimum time. They were all polite, professional, responsible, efficient and fast. My wife and I will definitely be using AB Moving Company on our next move. Thank you, Eddie and your wonderful crew, for a job well done!

I’ve used AB Movers for two partial moves and one final and they’ve impressed me more with each move. They are professional, punctual and they do an amazing job!!Their attention to detail is great! They are very careful with your belongings and are beyond helpful! They are very reasonably priced too. I checked out several moving companies and AB Movers were the most reasonable without extra charges. They charge exactly what they quote with no hidden fees! Try them, you won’t regret it!

The crew was very professional. They were fast but careful. Everything arrived at my new house in the condition it was in when it left the old house. They disassembled then reassembled two larger pieces of furniture. They placed everything where I asked them to. It started pouring rain at the end of the move and they carefully double-covered the remaining pieces and safely brought everything inside. I'm extremely happy with their service. This is the third time I have used AB Moving Co. The other two moves were just as smooth. Highly recommend!

From the first time I contacted this company to the end of my move, I had a great experience! AB moving was a huge help to me during my move from out of state. I used their unpacking service because my apartment is up three flights of stairs and I couldn't get the big stuff myself. The crew members, Eric, Kevin, and Christian, were extremely friendly and helpful. All of the crew members were respectful of my things and professional throughout the entire experience. If you are looking for a local moving crew to help load/unload, I would highly recommend AB moving. Timely, professional, friendly, and cost-effective.

Reason for move:Our Lease was terminated by the Apartment, due to Natural disaster (winter storm damage) which happened on February month. We have a 7 days notice period to vacate the home. Usually we use to shift our home on our own, but this time we have no time. so we focused on packing. AB was referred by my Wife's Friend.About AB Moving company:The one word to say, it's an outstanding performance by the 3 guys who are involved in moving. I thought it would take at least 3 hours for shifting. Because i have lot of stuff, moreover they have to shift the things from 3rd floor to the new apartment which is also 3rd floor. They first took an assessment for 2 minutes and started their work.They didn't had a break, They didn't had any drinks, They didn't speak to anyone in phone.Their energy level is at top till they finish their work. They have 8 Years of experience in this field. They have two schedules per day. I don't how this work for them. They work more than a machine.Really Awesome Do you Guess How much time they took to complete their job?It's just 1 hour 22 minutes.... Really a stunning performance.People who go behind cheapest movers and spending lot of money per hour. I would suggest this AB moving company. Rate is also cheap and you will good satisfaction at end.Beautiful thing is that there is no damage in any of my package.Keep rocking guys.........

I was very impressed by the work ethic of the crew AB sent to help us with our move. They moved us from our third floor apartment (no elevator) to a two story house with ease. Despite the heatwave this week, these guys gave it 110% the entire time and seemed to be having a blast doing it (singing and joking around with each other). Besides the actual move, both people I spoke to on the phone to arrange the move were very professional and friendly. They were able to schedule a last minute move for us and then had no problem adjusting the time to suit our schedule. The moving details were confirmed by both email and by text message. I’ve used other moving companies in the past and had one of them give me a quote for this move. The quote that they gave me was 3x what AB ended up charging us. I’m not planning on moving again any time soon, but if something changes, I’ll definitely be calling AB. I highly recommend AB Moving.

I hired this company to move my late mother's things from a storage unit 40 minutes away to one closer to my home (easier access to start sorting through everything). The three gentlemen that came out were extremely professional and understanding. They handled my mother's things with care and got things moved in a reasonable amount of time. The time saved in hiring a moving company was well worth the money, and I would definitely use this company again in the future.

If I could give more than 5 stars, I absolutely would! I've experienced many moving companies in life and this is the 2nd one that I will remember forever. They were EXTREMELY cooperative and patient with me as my move date changed 3 or 4 times due to contractor delays. Never a peep of irritation or attitude to reschedule. Then, when moving day finally came, it was awesome. They paid attention to my guidance on items as I have several very heavy pieces and moving them takes calculation. Moved me in and even were flexible for a second trip to help empty out my rental. I felt like I had sons looking out for me! After the move, I realized that some of the cabinet pieces were not secured together and there was zero hesitation in sending a team to address this. The gentleman was so nice that he even addressed my concerns about some of my furniture and helped me remedy the situation. This had nothing to do with the move and was him simply going above and beyond! I can not Express how grateful I am to have had their support during a very stressful time for me.

AB Moving ,and more specifically the “Romo Crew” they sent, were absolutely INCREDIBLE!!! From start to finish, the process was seamless!! In fact, we were so pleased that we are hiring them again in less than a month to move us from our storage unit into our new home. They blew their competition out of the water in every category: price, friendliness, and service. No hidden fees, fast and careful work...wish I could give them 10 stars!!

This is our second time using AB Moving. Our first experience was off a recommendation and the moving crew we met day-of was top notch! Second moving experience - also excellent! This time we were able to take advantage of a promotional offer but ended up paying around the same (our moves were 3-4 years apart, just for reference and price comparison). Scheduling was easy, their staff who we communicated with also very knowledgeable and sweet. We would 100% recommend AB Moving and will definitely be calling them for our next (and hopefully final) move!
