Able Moving & Storage Reviews

I couldn't ask for a better moving experience. Able was courteous, prompt, professional & helpful.
- Debra F.

Once again Able has done a fantastic job! They moved me into my last house 4 years ago and just moved me again today. The crew was fast, efficient and on time. I had a beast sofa and honestly didn't think it would make it in the new place, no problem for the crew. If moving, Able is hands down the best of the best. 6 stars.
- Chad D.

I am so disgusted with this moving company. They helped me and my mom move 2 times but they now lost my trust. Everything was going fine until we arrived at the new location. The movers spoke Spanish around my mom whenever she asked them to move furniture to another room. One was extremely rude and since I know a little bit of Spanish, I knew what he said and it made me very upset. I didn't say anything because I just wanted them out. My mother asked if I had extra cash on me to give for a tip because she was short by 20 dollars. I know I had 20 dollars in my wallet and right when I opened my wallet to give to the movers it was gone! I accidentally left my purse in the basement while I went upstairs with my mom to make sure everything looked ok. I looked EVERYWHERE for the 20 dollar bill and could not find it. I knew it was in my wallet because I purchased food just before arriving to the new location and I know I saw a 20 in there. I know I should've had my purse on me, and I take this as a lesson learned not to trust movers. I saw them banging furniture on the stair rail and the walls and they scratched up some of my furniture as well. They broke one of my lamps that I had for 6 years and didn't even apologize. Feeling like I was robbed, I was paranoid the whole night fearing some belongings were stolen. I unpacked all of my belongings in 6 hours (right after the movers left) and didn't go to bed until 4am. Thank goodness nothing else was stolen. I trusted this company to help me and my mom move for years and they treated my mom like this. She even bought them lunch and this is the thanks we get. Don't make the same mistake I did and trust this company. This is the worst moving company and I will tell everyone I know never to hire Able!
- Cindy V.

We highly recommend Able Moving. We had a complicated move, with furniture (including a piano) and boxes going to 3 different locations in 2 states. Nick very capably estimated the costs and answered all our questions, Sande coordinated the move from the office and was a pleasure to speak with, and Maurizio and his team did a superb job with the move. They were very careful, professional, and polite, and they maintained their sense of humor throughout the long day. It was a positive experience start to finish.
- Terry W.

If you are considering a move, consider Able Moving & Storage and be sure to as for Rush & His Crew. He is simply the best we have ever experienced. I want to tell you what a fantastic job Rush and his crew did with our move. It was an international move so it was difficult. Rush was beyond fantastic. No one could ask for a better person. He was not only polite, but was extremely careful with all our valuables. He was by far the best mover we have ever dealt with in many years of moves. Working in the summer heat and humidity with little breaks they took extreme care in handling all our belongings. No task was too difficult for them. I can only give him the highest of recommendations. Your Company is fortunate to have such a fine employee and he certainly represents you well. Thank you again for providing us with such a superb individual for this move.
- Wendell S.

After the hurricane hit Texas, Able Moving and Storage lent out their truck for two weeks and supplied numerous boxes so that the South Riding community could stock it up with donations to send to the disaster stricken area. Once the truck was full, they made the two day drive to Houston to deliver the donations. They are a great business run by great people. Highly recommended!
- Jenny T.

We had a big, downtown office move for a staff of over 50. Chris Cox was our point person and he was extremely thorough, responsive, courteous, and professional. Able's crew helped us pack up common areas - carefully and thoroughly - and moved everything from one Dupont Circle office building to another a few blocks away. On the night of our pack up and move, Chris arrived on-site to monitor progress. He arrived on-site at the new office the following morning to ensure all was going smoothly. The crews we worked with (led by Lemont Jeffers) were very professional and thorough and courteous. They handled everything very professionally and carefully and the whole move went super smoothly for us. I'm grateful to their whole team for a superb job. I would happily recommend them without reservation. Great crews!
- G S.

My wife and I were recently moved by Able Moving and Storage and it was a great experience. They were professional, efficient, and polite. Not a single thing was damaged during the move and I have some very heavy equipment in my shop that I was concerned about. No problem for these guys. They had it all safely moved and put in place at the new house without any issues. I highly recommend this company for your move.
- Jim D.

I highly recommend them. The team lead and his crew did a wonderful job assisting my wife and I with our move. They were on time, friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable about the whole process. I really enjoyed my move and how careful and thoughtful they were. Side note as a sign of good faith make sure you feed and be hospitable to your movers as they are the ones who are packing your valuables and taking care of all your stuff. Thank you again able movers for your help
- A.j. R.

I used Able about 9 years ago to move me/store my belongings and had no issues. What a difference 9 years makes! Used them again in November to move out/store/move in. The main office staff itself seems disorganized and the group of movers who moved me in were clueless amateurs. They damaged the wall and ceiling with my queen boxspring. They could not get the hutch to my entertainment center around a corner. They wanted to lift it up via my deck. I refused because with their performance and have a cracked deck on my newly constructed home. They dropped my elliptical and cracked it, and I have a scratch around the full circumference of my coffee table in which they will not cover the damages for...because it's within my 100.00 which it took them one month to respond. Amateurs!
- G B.

They told me after scheduling an estimate that they don't go to the west coast. Big waste of time
- Paul H.

If you have an expensive large item to move in your 3 story townhouse then Able Moving & Storage is the company to pick! My new sleep number bed was too big to get up my stairwell to the 3rd floor bedroom. The guys at Able Moving came to my rescue and hoisted my bed, mattress and headboard to the bedroom without a scratch! It was a little pricey but it took 4 guys to do this tricky job so I'm very happy! They were very nice and on time.
- Anna C.

I recently used Able for 2 moves for the same house - one from my apartment (local) and one for additional furniture from my parents' house (long distance). Both were painless to schedule - Sande and Anni were great to work with and very responsive in getting everything set up! The crews arrived on time and promptly got to work. They are so professional and diligent in their work, which is often rare with movers. Both moves were completed with no hiccups and no damage to the furniture, and were competitively priced. Would not hesitate to recommend Able and would use them again in any future moves.
- Marissa M.

This was worth every penny. Customer service here is high touch and I talked to the service coordinator several times before the actual move date. The crew was SO CAREFUL with our stuff and wrapped everything meticulously (even if I said they didn't have to). They were all friendly and were tolerant of kids getting in the way (without running anyone over!). It was incredibly hot the day we moved and everyone was in good spirits regardless. It was pretty painless overall and I didn't have anything to worry about, which is impressive given how stressful moving is! I definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a competent, professional moving company.
- Susan W.

EDIT: I'm changing it to 3 stars because they've reached out to make this right. I appreciate that. I still think others should see what happened so here's my original review: My mom hired them to move stuff from my storage unit to our house. They sent 2 adults & 2 kids that looked 16 at the oldest. At one point they put one of my plastic storage bins, which aren't meant to support a lot of weight on top, on the bottom of a dolly, stacked 2 or 3 boxes on top, and then the youngest SAT on top of it until the bin cracked while he laughed. I guess I should have been taking video because that's just completely unacceptable. I was looking right at him. Didn't say a word to me or apologize. That bin had my Christmas ornaments I've had since I was a kid & I'm afraid to even try & open it now. I had 2 large DVD shelves put together but without the shelves in. They decided to either take 1 apart or it fell apart & they just left it in 2 pieces. I found another broken storage bin with a bunch of stuff stacked on top. They also thought it was a good idea to put a storage bag of clothes on the bottom of a stack of 5 big boxes that are now leaning over onto another stack. I can't see everything yet to know what else they did.

Moving is one of life's most stressful events. Hiring mover's that are extremely customer service oriented and professional help make moving much less stressful. Kudos to the entire staff at Able Moving. Jackie Kulick was my customer service rep and she went out of her way to make sure the move was as seamless as possible. She also followed up after the move to make sure I was satisfied. The movers themselves were excellent; they ensured all items were packed properly and were very conscientious of the surroundings- they never bumped into a single wall. It's my pleasure to recommend Able Moving and Storage.
- paul v.

We had a really moving experience with Able! Seriously, this was as smooth and easy as a move can be, from the totally accurate estimate and professionalism of our estimator, to moving day itself. These friendly and totally competent movers never so much as bumped a wall or a corner in our BRAND NEW HOUSE (we were terrified!) As if that wasn't good enough, they were off-the-charts friendly and diligent. They rolled out the red carpet (literally) throughout our old house and then our new one; they covered the carpeted stairs with plastic stuff; and the cheerfully delivered every box and piece of furniture exactly where we wanted them. I sing their praises. Moving is a stressful thing. Having the best movers on your side is amazing!
- Martha P.

Great communication and service. I came across Able from a friend's referral. I was stressed out about packing up a 3 bedroom townhouse myself, and moving to a smaller townhouse 5 miles away. I requested an estimate through Yelp about 2 weeks out from my move date. They got back to me the same day and came out for a short, on-site estimate, which was reasonable. The estimator told me exactly what the chargers included and things that could change the cost, like if I were to break down some of the furniture myself. The follow up emails and confirmation calls included everything I needed to know and were clear. The day of the move, the crew called to let me know they were rolling in. The crew of 3 were efficient and took care of the furniture very well (wrapped in their blankets). They were very accommodating and patient helping me get the pieces into the new place. The office called to follow up on my experience for feedback. I couldn't have had a better moving experience!
- Jennifer D.

I've tried to reach this company several times within the past week during their business hours and have gotten zero responses. I emailed them, no response. I put out a quote via Yelp and nada. I just called them again 5 minutes ago, and left a voice message to a Melissa(?). I texted them via Yelp and their "online chat box" and received an auto text from that "aren't open right now" while your business hours sat Mon-Sat 8a-5p. What kind of alleged customer service is this?? If you don't want to accept new business, you should just say so.
- Brianna A T.

Professional and efficient team who worked non stop to safely deliver all of my belongings. Nothing damaged, cracked or scratched. I highly recommend this company. From lovely Jackie to Derrick who set things up and Mario's team who did an amazing job!!! I will definitely use them again, no questions asked!!
- June M.

Luis Gonzalez and crew did a great job with our move last weekend. They were punctual, professional and friendly. They moved and unloaded all of our items in the short time frame allotted, which speaks to their high level of efficiency. They made sure we reviewed their work to make sure nothing was missing or damaged. Able Moving did a great job! We highly recommend them!
- Tanya H.

Professional, on time, 2 trucks, 5 guys, stored for 3 nights and final cost better than quote. Loved the free used boxes. Very helpful. Great experience! Highly recommended.
- SD A.

moved from herndon va. to palm coast fl. in april 2020. in every way able moving provided professional and safe workers. they were very careful with my belongings and seemed to really enjoy their work. they made my move so much easier and answered all my questions. when i finished unpacking there was a power unit missing for my couch. i called able and they spoke to the packers/movers. no one remembered seeing that outlet so i ordered one online and able moving promptly reimbursed me. i have highly recommended this company to my realtor, neighbors and friends.
- Dorothy H.

I called Able Moving because I had 3 great recommendations. The estimator came, next day I got the quote. We set up a packing and loading dates. Then the 4 women packers showed up this morning. My house is 4500sf. In the basement they saw 2 dead mice from my exterminator's traps. They declared my house was unsafe to work and walked out. So the first demand for them to come back was to get an exterminator. Had one. The next demand was I needed to get my house cleaned. It was. Then next they wanted me to organize my stuff. I had 23 boxes in my family roomed used for sorting. My books were organized into sub-categories. I told the estimator this was bullshit and asked for my deposit returned. These women just weren't interested in working. Able Moving isn't even worth the phone call.
- Sara S.

Able did a local move for us this summer. The crew damaged our brand new home during the move. Proper padding, runners, etc were not provided or used. The crew was rude and argumentative when I pointed out the damage (stairs, floor, door jam). I've sent in pictures, notified the office multiple times, and filled out the proper forms but the operations manager still hasn't contacted me. UPDATE: I'm adding stars because the Len from Able contacted me just hours after this review was posted to apologize. A repair person called and is scheduled to come fix the damage.
- Sarah R.

WOW!! Had a chance to visit this facility on 11/3, yes on a Sunday. Joe and Steve K made me feel very welcome. This shop was impeccably clean and spotless and they have modern, clean equipment. Great staff and continued growth with Make Able a mark in the DC market
- Jerry N.

To be completely honest, I never fully trusted anyone to ever move my stuff. But, moving from a townhouse to a house with a lot of furniture in tow, isn't something I wanted to do. Able Moving & Storage came highly recommended to help me and I see why. From the thorough estimate, to the payment/coordination process, to the move itself, everyone was incredibly friendly and professional. The guys that helped us move were so fantastic and courteous, and they made my move so easy, that I'm still smiling. Thank you, to each of the staff, for making our move such a positive experience!
- Nichole D.

Update: We were contacted by customer service about 1.5 hours after our move was to begin, and they were very helpful and apologetic. The movers did eventually arrive and they did a great job. In the end, Able made up for the added stress/delay, and overall we ended up very satisfied with the move. Delays happen, and despite the initial lack of communication, we were impressed with their willingness to make it right and get the job done! Yesterday we confirmed with Able our 1pm move today. It's an hour past our moving time, and the movers haven't arrived nor have they called. We haven't been able to get in contact with a single person from Able to see when they might arrive. Hoping this review gets someone's attention! Otherwise we've really been left in the lurch.
- Morgan S.

Able Moving & Storage packed me up just short of 5 months ago for a journey from Virginia to Hawaii, in crates that went across the country, over the ocean, and to a dock where it sat, exposed to the elements for months due to COVID restrictions. With all that, because the Able crew packed my items so well and so thoughtfully, everything arrived safely, protected, and intact. I am so amazed with each piece that I am unwrapping - all the care they put into my move. They had no idea what my household goods would go through before finally getting to me - and they took an extraordinary amount of care and attention with my items. And more than ever, I see the stark contrast from dealing with the work ethic from other companies. There's a great deal of vulnerability when it comes to moves....strangers coming in to my home, touching my things, and me having to trust the people and the process. They called me and communicated with me from the start. The crew was so absolutely professional and trustworthy. They showed up on time and they were efficient throughout the entire process. I had 3 levels - tons of stairs, and lots of heavy items. I can't thank or praise them enough. With each piece I'm opening I'm singing their praises - so pleased with how they labeled everything so well and this company has quality, sturdy supplies - which made me want to come on Yelp and write a review and highly recommend them for any move/relocation needs. I am so impressed and so very pleased with Able. I had the best experience and I am so grateful to the crew and this company. Also, random side note - I really like their logo, the colors, the box label lines and checklists, and the branding on their boxes and the paper that my glass and frames were wrapped in. Thank you soooooo much!!!!!!!!!
