Absolute Moving Company Reviews

Moving is supposedly the 3rd most stressful activity in life, after death and divorce. I'm happy to say that Absolute Moving Company really did a great job and reduced that stress!! Rick gave me a quick, fair, and inexpensive estimate, with a fixed price. Jimmy and the crew were very professional and did a great job packing us out in only one day. They took a lot of care with fragile items and were very attentive to special requests. They moved us in one day, and expertly packed our storage area so we didn't have to pay for a second one. We've had a lot of moves over the last 30+ years and they are the best we've had.

We just finished a move with Absolute Moving Company. We moved across town to a condo on the third floor with a small elevator. The condo community would not allow moving trucks on the premises so they had to park outside the gate to unload the moving van. We had a ton of boxes in addition to furniture.....The four young men who handled the move were exceptionally polite, worked nonstop and did an excellent job. I highly recommend Absolute Moving Company for your next move.
- Eileen S.

I thought they did a really good job. We had a crew of 6 for a full house of furniture and almost 200 boxes to be unloaded from the POD. The move took almost the full day, but everyone was working and the pace was appropriate. They wrapped my TVs and artwork really well. Plus, they were really good with anything I pointed out to them as an antique or especially valuable. Nothing broke, all the boxes more or less in the correct rooms, they were all very polite and a pleasure to work with. Also arrived promptly on time in the morning and after their midday break. Jeff Burdick was super agreeable - I amended the move agreement twice to include things I had left off the first time and he was fine with it. Price was fine. I'd use them again.
- Ondrea D.

We used Rick and his company for a local move which included a move out (2 story), into storage and then back into a 2 story. We couldn't be more pleased with the move. Albert and his team were pleasant, courteous, responsive and above all professional. I am a retired Navy so I have had approximately 15 moves in one form or another in the last 25 years. I can say without reservation that this has been the best experience with regards to dealing with a moving company. Additionally for the services received I felt the price was on point. I would highly recommend this company and look no further than Absolute moving.
- David B.

Used this moving company as my first moving company ever & man they set the expectation high! I had never used movers because I was always on the first floor, but my new place was on the fourth floor & there was no way I was moving my stuff all the way up there (nor were any of my friends). The guys that came to move my stuff were extremely nice & helpful. They worked smarter not harder so I was super appreciative of that as well. Hopefully I'm not moving again for a few years but if I am I will definitely be using this company. THEY WERE AMAZING!

We used Absolute Moving on 12/29/18 to move our 3 bedroom apartment 7 miles down the road to our new home. They arrived on time with a crew of 3 people at 12:30pm. We had everything ready to go and in boxes and some larger items (2 couches, 2 dressers, some tv's, etc..).Now, we lived on the third floor of the apartment complex, which clearly isn't an easy chore to move out of...I understand this. The first hour of moving was not awful. As soon as the master bedroom was finished, things took a turn for the worse. I have never had people ask me if they could use my bathroom so many times..... and I have never had those people stay in the bathroom for 20 minutes each time...after the bathroom break, apparently a 15 minute sit-in session is required in the front seat of the truck to check up on social media. Between "bathroom breaks," and playing on their phones i would say a solid 2 man hours were wasted before the truck was packed. I don't know if Absolute Moving tells their workers its okay to hide in bathrooms and play on their phones or if the movers that showed up had awful diarrhea and were checking IMDB for causes, but I should have charged rent on my bathroom.. After they finally packed the truck, 5 1/2 hours later, and left numerous items in the apartment for me to take the next day, I was told they needed to stop at a 7 Eleven for a 30 minute bathroom break and to get drinks.... fine... whatever... just get to the house and move my stuff when you are done. They arrive at the house and start moving things....slowly. The head of the crew became concerned at 7:30pm (Yes, 7 hours after a 3 bedroom apartment move) that they wouldnt finished and decided to call for another crew to come help. When the other crew arrived, it was clear that we have been given not the B team, not the C team, but the D team. They had everything out of the truck in about 45 minutes and were literally laughing at the crew helping us... we finished with boxes marked ROOM OVER GARAGE in the garage...a DESTROYED muddy carpet in my new home at 8:30... The crew chief was adding up the hours and we told him to take at least 2 hours off, because we weren't going to pay for it. We got the owner on the phone and explained the situation. Even the crew chief of the D team told the owner that they were slacking... nowhere close to worth the money we paid... $1,000 to use my bathroom and play on your phone?! You are better off asking friends to help you move than hire this company. An almost complete joke.

What a wonderful moving experience! Let me start from the beginning. I asked for recommendations for movers on FB and someone recommended this company. I go to their website and request a quote. It seems like as soon as I had hit send, the owner Rick had responded to me. I was amazed just with that in itself. The pricing is VERY straight forward with nothing hidden or tacked on. The day of the move comes and the 3 gentleman that showed up were nice, respectful, polite and efficient. Very professional and the truck was HUGE. They didn't do any standing around chit chatting trying to waste time. They stayed right within the 2 hour time frame(which made me extra happy). They took great care of my belongings. I have nothing but good things to say about this company from the quote until your last item is moved in.....EXCELLENCE. Move with this company, you will not be disappointed. Thanks guys.

Set up a date and time, I was traveling from overseas they asked the address when I was in the air, the day of no phone calls and no texts. They just blew me off, I hired the other company on thumbtack and had excellent service. This place is terrible.
- Gerry M.

Left a message and was called back within minutes. Once the job was described, I had a date with a very reasonable price attached to it. This, of course, was the easy part. Come the moving day, I received a timely heads up by phone that they were on the way. Rick arrived with two other men, all extremely courteous, efficient, and careful with our things. The truck was loaded faster than expected and was on its way. At the other end, more efficient unloading and placing of pieces where they belonged. You could tell that these guys have a system and are good at this. I couldn't have asked for more. Great job, men.

In the world of movers it is a dog eat dog business. I had an occasion to need a moving company for a short Chesapeake to va. Beach move. I found absolute moving company. I am retired and told them I needed it on the cheap. I was told the min. was 2 hours. By God they did it, to the min. Wow I have never seen 2 guys move so quick. I mean they did it all in the 2 hours. How do not know but they did. I confronted one of the owners on how many positive votes they got. They were all right.
- Don J.

I have moved at least 18 times in over 20 years. These guys were great. Moved us on time, quick and efficient. Thank you!!!!! If by chance we need to move again,I will use these guys! Great find especially when it comes to movers,believe me I know!
- Rocco S.

They were professional and quick to get our stuff moved out of old house and into the new one. Nothing damaged and nice guys. Price seemed fair. Would reccomend at least for long distance moves
- Forrest T.

I have to start with the fact that they were soooo awesome! I was able to schedule a last minute move. They dealt with three flights of stairs with no problems and moved me into my new place in about four hours. From Virginia Beach to Chesapeake, I believe they did an awesome job! Use Yelp! Show them that you're using Yelp and you'll receive 10% off your total cost. The movers were professional and I cant say awesome enough. If I were to move again in the future in the Hampton Roads area I will be using them again.
- Barbara W.

This company did a great job moving my belongings from a storage unit to a condo. They were careful with everything. The move only took 2 1/2 hours including the drive time between the two places so you can see they were also efficient. I couldn't have been happier with the guys. And they were personable as well. Highly recommend.
- Jodie T.

Friendly, fast and efficient movers. There was one guy who seemed to not pull his way which unfortunately you could see the aggravation from the other workers
- Jen C.

I debated writing this post because I don't know if it will help but that fact that I never got a call back post move made me feel inclined to write this review. I moved to my new location 4 months ago. I feel as though I was taken advantage of with the price that was quoted to me after I saw the services this company provided. Here is why I gave 2 stars. 1. The day I had the movers come, 6 of them showed up which I felt was overkill for the size of my apartment. 2 of them were absolutely amazing and I would hire again. The other 4 acted like frat boys the entire time. Farting...blaming eachother for farting....wasting time, etc. 2. I had left my kitchen to pack because there were a lot of breakables. With the cost I was quoted I felt it was reasonable because of what was left to pack....barrels (dish boxes) are expensive and a lot of paper would need to be used. Well....what I got were the guys using book boxes (small boxes) they brought and using the couple medium boxes and paper I had left over from my packing. Then when I unpacked the boxes everything that wasn't china wasn't even wrapped in packing paper and just thrown in the box! I'm sorry but even if it isn't China it should be taken care of so it doesn't scratch or move in the box. What did my money go toward? Also, since barrels weren't used, my new apartment was smaller and less boxes that would have been packed the better. Smaller boxes caused the apartment to be overflowing to the point you couldn't walk! 3. After I unpacked and saw if anything was broken along with witnessing how my stuff was packed I called the Owner/GM to talk about items that were broken. While the guys were packing, a glass vase was broken and glass went everywhere (all movers witnessed this). In the move, my patio chair became damaged and the concrete in a floor lamp came out during the move so now the lamp doesn't sit straight and with the heavy/very breakable glass lamp shade it leans with the possibility of falling over. I left a message about these concerns along with how my items were packed along with to please call me back. 4 months later I still have not received a call. To some these things may not be alot or mean much but they mean alot to me. I don't know what company doesn't call to see how your move went....to check up on workers, etc and then not even have the decency to call back when concerns were voiced. I felt the owner just gave me lip service to get the business and then wrote me off. I will not be recommending this company to any future friends who need to move in the Tidewater Area.
- Laura M.

ABSOLUTELY the best move experience out of 19 past moves. Extremely professional crew , no damage and 45 mile move done in record time. Highly recommended !!!
- Clyde S.

Absolute Moving Company was top class. They actually came out to assess my home and provided a flat rate quote. The competition wasn't even close to this level of service. On moving day, 4 guys came and moved a 3 bedroom home in one truck. All 4 of them were very nice and extremely professional. Fantastic job for a local move. All of our belongings were handled with care and it was our first move without anything being broken. I highly recommend this company.
- Chris C.

Great Service. Had 3 guys come out with a 17 foot truck (which was almost full by the end). I hired mostly for large items only (dressers, beds, couches, washer/dryer, etc). Price did not change from the phone estimate. Despite moving from 3rd floor, they got it done quick. I had everything about 80% broken down before they arrived. New rental was 15 minutes away. Total time for them to get everything down from 3rd floor, fill the truck, drive, and unload was about 2.5 hours. Really efficient. No damage to items. Great job. I would use them again.
- David H.

This is a top notch organization. The estimators were kind, considerate, and correct in their estimate. They stuck to their estimate. The movers themselves were incredibly skilled, patient, and very very efficient. I am a very nervous mover and an hour into the move, I could tell everything was going to be all right. I highly recommend this company.
- Ann M.

I highly recommend Absolute Moving Company. Rick was immediately responsive to my request for a quote. I honestly went with them because there were so many good reviews and I would prefer to pay for quality service than go with the cheapest quote. He responded quickly to my follow up questions as well. Moving day went very smoothly. The 3 man crew led by Greg, Colton, and a third gentleman(I wish I remembered his name as well ) was awesome. They were prompt, polite, they moved quickly and moved my belongings with care. Great experience!
- Shannon D.

I moved with Absolute Moving Company in late September. Rick had very clear communication on the phone, they informed me about the delay and arrived on time. The movers were very professional and fast. I would definitely hire them again and recommend them.
- Ally S.

Company came out fast to do the estimate, were nice. Reasonably priced, and friendly, great movers! Amazing job!
- Paige G.

I would absolutely use these movers again. They were timely, they were kind, they are incredibly reasonably priced. I couldn't ask for a better experience.
- Angel O.

Professional and reliable from the time of the estimate until all of our furniture was moved. The movers worked so hard and remained professional, helpful, and nice through the entire move. Our 2 story condo with large, heavy furniture was moved in about 4 - 5 hours. Worth every cent!!
- Kaela H.

Excellent service! I needed to move furniture and household items from two public storage units to our new house about 15 min away and the guys did a fantastic job. It took 4 guys just under an hour and a half to clear out both units, and everything was in the house and the items that needed to be assembled were complete within an hour. They were fast and efficient. Well worth the price. Very impressed and would definitely recommend!
- Alex B.

I would hire them over and over! They were on time and worked and worked to get everything loaded and unloaded. They were very professional.
- Jim K.

We are a military family and this absolutely the best moving crew that we have ever had throughout all our moves. They were very courteous, respectful and fast. I will never hire another moving company and will definitely recommend them to all my friends. Thank you so much for making moving day so easy!
- Joy P.

I had used Absolute for a move back in 2018. I could not be happier with that move. I had recommended them to a number of people. My next move in 2020 didn't go so well. The owner was NOT receptive to any feedback and blamed me for "never being happy". So they have gone from a company I recommended to everyone... to one I would ABSOLUTELY NEVER RECOMMEND. The move was one experience, but dealing with the owner was far worse.
- Eric W.

Thank you Absolute Moving Company for your hardworking crew and fair pricing! I needed a 16' Moving & Storage POD unloaded into our new home. 4 guys showed up, worked quickly and efficiently and took the best care of moving our things. I highly recommend Absolute Moving!
