The guys arrived on time, were polite and respectful. Took great care with my furniture. Made great use of their time. Very organized. I couldn’t ask for better helpers. This was the second time using them and I will be using them again. Randy, Chris and Joe were great!!
These workers were amazing! They went above and beyond. Super helpful, personable, respectful and even offered to assist with positioning the Uhaul I had rented. Overall they made my move stress free, and I would recommend them to anyone or even use them again in the future.
The Helpers were a bit late but they kept me informed. They came ready to work and went right to it. Didn't waste a minute. They worked hard, were respectful, polite and took care with my furniture.

If you are looking for people to move fast, these are your people. They rushed through the job from start to finish, ending substantially early. However, their focus was very clearly on "getting the job done."

This resulted in some broken, marred, or otherwise damaged furniture and property. In short, they got the job done. That's about it.Show Response
We regret to hear of any problems on our jobs in our busy season however we are proud of our employees accuracy specifically on a job like this where the truck and home is small less than 1000 sq feet should take 2 men approximately 3 hours to load as the team loaded in 3 hours exactly without any space in the truck remaining for moving or shifting as long as there was safe transport and driving and the customer dismissed us at hour 3 and did not ask us to stay longer but would have if required

My helpers, Mark and Matthew did an awesome job. They were very friendly and professional. They asked before adding any additional items that would cost me more money.

Excellent helpers. I hired two movers and they were quick and careful.

The best experience with ANY company, of ANY kind. The crew was on time, worked hard and worked smart, and their ability pack the moving truck was very impressive.

Aaron was great in getting everything in. When the dryer did not fit he spoke to me about solutions and options.

His helper (can't remember the name) was a big help and they worked very fast.…Read More We were expecting it to take 3 hours and they finished in 1.5! Thank you very much for offering last minute services, it was a life-saver!!! I would absolutely recommend them again and will request them for the next move I make.
They were awesome! In the hot heat they emptied a 26 foot truck packed to the rafters. They even went the extra mile to help with a furniture piece that wouldn't fit up the stairs and take it to the dumpster. I definitely recommend them for their professionalism is a cut above!
Super respectful and kind to us and our things. These guys deserve to earn much more. We gave them a reasonable tip but I probably should have gave them more. Aaron the boss was so easy to get ahold of on the phone. Moving is hard so it was worth spending the money on some good help.
HireAhelper was amazingly accommodating. Our planned move was on July 5th. I tweaked my back on, yes, you guessed it, July 4th. I contacted HireAhelper at 2:00 and had two movers reserved to help by 6:00. The crew that worked for us was on time, hard working, very skilled at moving heavy items through tight corners and took g…Read Morereat pride in moving our items carefully -- smartest decision I made with this move!
These guys were great! They showed up on time and got right to work. Moving into a third-floor apartment is never easy and these guys were able to take care of all my heavy furniture with no issues! They were very respectful of where my things needed to go and I would definitely use them again.
Aaron and his crew arrived early for the job. They went above and beyond in meeting our expectations, working extremely hard considering it was a 90 degree day. They were very careful moving our possessions and very conscientious about not banging walls and flooring. I would not hesitate using their services again.
Overall this was a very positive experience. The reason for giving 4 stars vs 5 stars is (1) my chest freezer appears to have been dropped during initial loading as the bottom corner was dented prior to starting the trip (I did not watch the movers load the truck), (2) my treadmill was scratched and dinged up due to my coffee ta…Read Moreble being loaded directly on top of it without any padding, and (3) now that I have unpacked several items were loaded onto the truck that I asked not be loaded as my previous landlord owned them and several items are missing (the glass insert for my coffee table). Admittedly, had I been watching how the truck was packed the above concerns likely could have been avoided but as a whole, the issues exist so I felt obligated to mention them. Besides these issues, I would recommend this company for your moving needs, just be sure someone is present to watch how the truck is loaded and ensure all valuable items are safely padded prior to transport.Show Response
We want to start by offering our Deepest & Sincerest apologies and to also send a compensation Gift Card.

We regret to hear about any concerns on one of our jobs especially one that was on Aaron the owners Birthday and one that Aaron was on himself even tho it was his Birthday and there was no concerns or issues presented on the job whatsoever and its disappointing the client was personally unhappy with him or our services.

I had to reschedule my first move and they were very flexible. They arrived on time and were extremely efficient and friendly. It was raining and they take extra care to protect the items. They brought blankets just in case but I had enough. We did have an issue when my grandmother started giving them a hard time. Aaron was…Read More looking out for her safety was trying to get her out of the way (she has dementia). The issue was resolved very quickly and professionally.

Our crew was on time and ready to work when they arrived. All of the guys were very respectful, attentive to our needs and worked very hard to get us loaded up efficiently and took care to protect our belongings. I would definitely use them again if I needed to in the future!
Had previously hired A.B. Industries before and selected again as their owner was very focused with his approach to the job. Unfortunately he was not available for this 2nd job.

We have the movers do a walk thru with the client when the job is completed to verify the home is in proper order however it is unfortunate that we missed this and were not able to rectify it immediately due to it going unseen and we will be sending out a compensation Gift Card to compensate for any concerns and We are extremely sorry to hear about any dings and scrapes no matter how small and our apologies go out and Thank you for bringing it to our attention

We got a confirmation and a voice mail the day before the move in day that they were all set to arrive at 10:00 am ready to get the job done. Move in date came and they did not show we waited an hour and started calling them We left a few messages with no return calls. So we had to call hire a helper directly and they tried call…Read Moreing with no success . We were very upset our stuff was not moved in at the scheduled time we did not get our stuff moved in until late that afternoon. Threw everything off with utility people cable guy and wifi people trying to help us unpack to get services started what a nightmare worst experience ever!Show Response
Our Team and truck broke down the night before in the mountains as we were returning from a move that took 8 days to complete and our phone service was unreachable and we called the client as soon as we were able to reach our office as it was just 6 hours past time of scheduled arrival time to their job and we offered to send compensation however the client was unresponsive to our apologies and it was necessary to hand off the job to a corresponding company and our deepest apologies go out

They changed their schedule to accommodate us and did a first rate job. The two stayed as long as we wanted them, and we worked them hard. I found them to be the best that we have worked with and would definitely use A..B. Industries again.
They were on time and worked hard but it took a long time to wrap furniture. I had a ton of stuff so I think I needed 3 or 4 helpers but hired only 2. If we wouldn't of helped it would not have been done in our 7 hours. They made it all fit in one trip. I was impressed... Packed well.
My two Hire a Helpers were excellent. They arrived on time, were prepared for the job, and worked hard moving furniture and other heavy items from our basement, up a difficult stairway, and into our garage. They were respectful of our property. They offered constructive recommendations to make the job more efficient. They finish…Read Moreed a difficult job in less than two hours. Yes I would use them again.
Nate and Adam were wonderful and careful, they are the best!! , no shirt ! They did all I expected and more. I could not be more pleased. They even saved me money , because of their no nonsense approach. I wish they were unloading also. My family will help at that end, sounds rough huh, thanks again guy's, your GREAT !!.
On the plus side they were on time and they were very fast in getting the POD unloaded. At first I was impressed. I even overlooked some things dropped from their carts. As time went on the first thing I noticed was that most items were just placed in a hodgepodge manner. It was difficult to even find the labels on the boxes…Read More. Then as I unpacked more and more things I found broken items. These things were immensely well packed by professionals! Through the use of paper, cardboard, foam matting board, packing peanuts, foam wrap, bubble wrap...they were, if anything overpacked. On top of that everything was strapped in the pod to an extreme. And, being a photographer I sort of naturally took SEVERAL photos of the innards of the packing etc. No difference between the before and after photos. I wish I could find some of the strapping, and such, that was used to hold the items in. Could say more, but enough. Seems they were more focused on 'fast' rather than 'quality'. In too much of a hurry to get to their next job maybe?Show Response
Unfortunately the packing mentioned and as stated the client "couldn't read the labels" was not related to the unloading team and as the photos should show pod was stacked to one side with large heavy items on top and fragile items like pictures on the bottom additionally upon unloading we placed things exactly where the client said to put into corresponding rooms and the client asked us to stick around after the job to situate things so we did This client was demanding but were glad to help

Aaron and Adam were ten minutes early and made very fast and efficient work of loading my truck.

Jaren was there training as well and was very helpful. All three gentlemen were friendly, task-oriented and professional. Adam was particularly polite and gracious. Great job!
They were on time. They were prepared for the job. Oh my gosh did they work hard!! I am moving out of Fayetteville, NC and the day was about 95 degrees and humid. They packed everything in my rental truck in the two hours (It would have taken me and friends all day). I also had to get a smaller rental vehicle since it would …Read Morejust be me and my mother driving the truck and they were able to get all of it to fit. They were incredibly considerate.

These guys were great. Courteous and professional phone calls prior (to confirm details and then the morning of to let me know they would be a few minutes late), and then they worked super hard once they arrived.

They called to confirm and arrived on time. I have done many moves and the crew actually finished 20 minutes early. They were polite and professional and my home was immaculate when they left. Not a single dent in the walls. I would highly recommend them and would definitely use again.
Aaron and Adam did a fantastic job today! They called ahead the morning of the job to confirm their arrival time. They worked efficiently and safely and had the tool they needed t get the job done.

Had them unload a POD for me. Originally booked them for the evening because I was unsure of when the POD would arrive.

The outstanding gentleman movers were actually early! They worked very hard, fast and were very careful with our possessions. First movers ever that did Not nick, scratch or mark the walls or trim!

I booked AB for a two-day job loading a moving truck in Grand Haven on Friday and unloading it in Auburn Hills on Saturday. On Friday, the two-man crew arrived close to the start time, quickly assessed the situation (1 bedroom/1 bath apartment on third floor with no elevator), and got to work. The crew worked quickly and efficie…Read Morently to empty out the apartment. Two hours later, the apartment was empty. The guys were courteous, professional, and personable as they hauled my furniture and belongings. On Saturday, the crew arrived and essentially repeated the process in reverse. Both times, the crews finished ahead of schedule. Ultimately, this group knows their business, employs professionals with good personalities, and cares about doing the job correctly and efficiently the first time. I wholeheartedly recommend them because they made my stressful move significantly less stressful!
Because the Hire A Helper provider I used to load my truck was 2 hours late it meant I arrived 90 minutes late at my destination but A.B.Industries still did the job willingly. They were professional and efficient and took good care of our belongings. I would use them again.
Aaron and Nick were very professional, knowledgeable and skilled at packing our moving truck. They quickly assessed the scope of the job and made a plan to pack the truck. We hired them for 3 hours and they were so efficient, it was done in 90 minutes. The work was also completed with very high quality. Everything was packed wel…Read Morel with no damage. They went above and beyond what we expected.
Recently I needed some help moving and I selected A.B. Industries through Hire a Helper. I select them because of the great reviews I read. I can't tell you enough what a great experience it was. Aaron and Mike were amazing. First they carefully walked my home, listened carefully to what I needed and understood my concerns. I hi…Read Morered them for 2 hours and, truthfully, they worked so hard it was like getting 3 hours of work. They never stopped, were extremely careful and everything that loaded and secured for me reached my destination in tip-top shape. Not one issue. Aaron and Mike were exceedingly polite and contentious. The communication throughout the time was perfect. I heartily recommend them and I would use them again for certain. It is important to know that they also come equipped with supplies if you need them or if you underestimate the amount you need. I wish there was a 6 star rating, they deserve it. Worth every single penny. Again, no one has worked harder and more efficiently in my experience.
A B Industries LLC did a fantastic job for me. Mike and Kyle were on time, prepared for the job, and worked very hard. They went above and beyond what I had asked them to do, which pleased me greatly. If in the future I needed them, I would not hesitate to request their services.
They really deserve 6 stars! Bill and Jeff went above and beyond to help me during my move. They were on time, prepared and worked hard all while being very respectful. They were very organized and efficient, managing the time well as not to exceed the arranged amount of time scheduled. I needed some extra help and they professi…Read Moreonally took on the tasks! They were amazing, thank you to both. And yes I would use the again.
We hired A.B. Industries to load a POD storage unit for us. The two guys they sent over, Jeff and Bill, were amazing. They were on time, and were constantly communicating with each other. Aaron, their manager, contacted me a day or two before to ask questions about the move, and explained everything to me. He also called me the …Read Moreday of. They worked very hard, and moved a lot of very heavy things. We had three flights of stairs. But they never stopped, nor did they complain. They were very respectful of our belongings and wrapped everything carefully. We would definitely use them again. They did end up staynig for extra time, but it was because we had some furniture that needed to be taken apart, so we were happy to have their assistance. They were very careful when taking apart our bed, which ended up being rather complicated. We would without a doubt hire them again!
They were on time and interacted in a very professional friendly manner. We had many challenges with large pieces of expensive furniture and the guys went far above and beyond the call of duty in moving these big pieces to 2 locations. They handled all of these pieces with care and no damage occurred. The work exceeded my initi…Read Moreal time estimate and the team committed to staying until the job was done - after 10pm on a Saturday night is when we finished. I am very grateful and would highly recommend them.
Aaron contacted us before the job to verify our information which is good because the date was incorrect! He was very courteous and helpful. He made the necessary changes to the order and scheduled arrival time.

They went to work right away, worked quickly and efficiently for the next 4 hours. They took special care using moving blankets and wrap on my wood furniture. These two guys were definitely professional and we would hire them again and recommend them to anyone needing movers.
This crew was represented to me as an experienced, professional loading team.

I was especially impressed by Aaron, the person with whom I contracted the date and time. My son was driving through here with a U-Haul to pick up furniture for his move. His arrival date changed and then his arrival time kept changing; Aaron worked with me to have his men here at just the right time. The men were on time, …Read Morefriendly, and professional. They did an excellent job, and helped me beyond what was minimally required. They went above and beyond. I would definitely hire A.B. Industries again!
Aaron and team were absolutely fantastic. They arrived on time, were ready to go, were very friendly, and did not stop until they finished. They were incredibly efficient and were able to fit all of our belongings in the truck when I thought we'd run out of room. You'd be crazy to hire anyone else if you live in SW Michigan.
A.B. Industries met or exceeded all of my expectations. They were exactly on time on very prepared with more supplies on hand than were needed just in case.

The customer being his own moving hero loaded the POD more than 3/4 full before we arrived and told us to only move large items down then sent us away job incomplete. Sad to hear any bad experience with our professional moving team who arrived early with supplies in hand being turned away stating the customer did not want anything wrapped or padded due to cost and time, even after it was identified that it is required on some items including a desk there was no padding used as requested

A. B. Industries handled the unload/move-in portion of my recent move from Virginia to Michigan and did an excellent job.

I was especially impressed by the guy (Joe I think) who carried out almost everything and stacked all the boxes very efficiently in the 7x7x8 pod. He used almost every inch of space. He spent the whole time running up and down my upper level and basement stairs, carrying heavy boxes on a very hot day, never taking a break or …Read Moreslowing down. The other guy spent almost the whole two hours wrapping my wall art/pictures slowly and carefully. I am having a long distance move, so I haven't seen how my items survived the trip yet. My only issue is that they went over the two hours allotted by about 5 minutes and I had to pay for an extra 1/2 hour because of that. I didn't think I should have had to pay that much for only 5 minutes, which was spent on the phone with the boss anyway when they called him to tell him the job was finished. The picture wrapping guy was the one who called the boss. When he got off the phone, it was only 10 min after the two hours, but he had told the boss that they went over 15 to 20 min. I said, it's only 10 after now, and he they showed me his wrist and said, "oh, well I don't have a watch. The boss said to charge you" And that was fine with him, not so much me. I had already tipped both guys $20 each before I found out about the extra charges. I would only have tipped Joe if I had it to do over. I also thought the boss (name unknown) was rude to me when I called to confirm the time frame (per email instruction) a day before the job was scheduled. I would use them again. It was worth the money, even with the extra $37.50 for them going over time by 5 minutes and the $30 I was charged for a roll of plastic wrap.Show Response
I'm glad you were very happy with our services and due to our extremely low pricing we have a strict policy about our hourly schedule and as stated it was 15 minutes over with a 2 man team.

It went well enough that I tipped the helpers at the end. Unfortunately, much of my stuff was damaged because of the way it was packed into the trailer. The movers I hired to unload in Texas were very disturbed by the condition of the boxes and that my wood furniture was scarred. lamp shades were ruined and a bedside table was broken. They began taking pictures not only to protect themselves but also to help me. I don't know how this story will end but I cannot recommend hiring them to anyone else at this point.Show Response
We regret to hear of any damage occurring either physical or emotional and we always make sure when using ABF to put cardboard pad down on floors and along the wall as well we plastic wrap and pad items as they go into the Semitrailer additional padding for this Large load was used and as stated by the customer "Michigan to Texas They were on time and very polite and customer service oriented, They brought moving supplies, knew what they where doing, Were comforting and worked very hard"

Aaron and his crew did a fantastic job. They showed up on time, were pleasant, hard working and professional. I had a number of very heavy pieces and I was impressed by the skill and care with which they showed with these pieces. I would highly recommend them and look forward to using them to move me into my new home as well.
Like many others, I just looked to reviews to choose between moving services. I chose AB due to their uniformly stellar reviews. In short, they more than lived up to reviews. Punctual, professional and definitely lived up to the "extreme packers" title that Aaron said they were when I first contacted him with my concerns abou…Read Moret not having enough PODS space (I only had 1 PODS). Aaron and Kevin were so damn good I cannot recommend them highly enough. They used every single inch of PODS space. I mean every inch, and tightly packed. They have their own tools and boxes, and readily packed up and strapped down some extra stuff. I already arranged to have friends with trucks get what I knew would be leftovers. All I can say is "wow". I am humbled by their work ethic, courtesy, and packing skill. They are a well-oiled moving machine! I moved a dozen times in the military. This was the best moving crew I have ever seen. My wife and I are eternally grateful for the job they did. If you need a mover, you don't have to wonder which one to use. Use AB. You will happy you did. I only hope I can find a crew like this to help unpack next month!
We hired three guys to help pack two apartments into a single truck for us. They were prompt and extremely efficient.

Both young men who came to move our furniture were on time, polite and efficient. They were prepared for the job and kept me updated on everything that they were doing during the move.

Due to another job running longer than expected, they were late getting to my apartment. However to make up for it another worker was sent along to speed things up at no extra charge.

The team was courteous and arrived on time. However, I believe they lacked basic skills and knowledge to both move furnishings as well as load. We had a particular piece of furniture that was a challenge. They attempted numerous times to remove it from a room and in the process scratched the furniture, the door and put dents …Read Morein the wall. I asked if it could be taken apart and they said no. After an hour (that I was charged for) I looked at the furniture and determined that it could, in fact, be taken apart. As I mentioned, the process took at least an hour and we may still be there if I hadn't determined the way to take it apart. The packing went relatively smoothly and I was assured that all would arrive in the same position it was packed. This was not the case. When I arrived and opened the back of the truck, it looked like everything was thrown in. I'd provide a picture but it's not possible on this site. I would not use them again.
These movers are the best!

It was amazing that such an arduous task could be done so efficiently and with such attention to detail. I ca…Read Morennot recommend them highly enough!
They had a job before us that ran a little long, but they were very good at keeping us updated about the delay.

Matt and A.P. Arrived early, worked hard with a clear plan of attack, took care with every item they moved, and were polite and conscientious at all times. We look forward to having them help us when we move out of storage into our new home.
WOW! A. B. Industries helped us move our belongings from our 10,000 sq ft home to our new home. They were on time, extremely professional, delicate and caring of our items and flooring, and very hard-working. I would recommend them for any jobs. We felt blessed to have them help us and are very grateful!
Great job done. Worked around the rain that occurred overnight and into the morning of the unload. John and his partner did a great job with our larger furniture and moving it up stairs and around tight spaces. They did no damage to any walls, carpets, or doors. Great job, highly recommend.
WOW I can not believe how well and fast these guys are. I hired three people for four hours and they had it done in one hour. It was a site to behold watching them load our our 16 foot packrat.

The companies owner (Aaron) called me the day after I booked the job and after I told him of my reluctance to use movers after a bad experience, he assured me that he would be present for the job and provide a great experience. I highly compliment Aaron's communication, both with me as the client and with his moving partner. He …Read Moreprovided good, closed loop communication with his partner that would effectively complete the job IF his partner actually listened to him and responded appropriately. His partner was slow (bringing one small item or box to the truck at a time) and didn't seem to listen to the constructive advice that Aaron provided. I commend Aaron for listening to my concerns and adjusting the packing of the truck to suit my preferences. Thanks Aaron!
Matt and A.B. did a fantastic job. Carefully moved and wrapped our furniture. Thoughtfully planed and organized filling the POD to maximize the use of space. Extended the schedule to complete my move. I plan to hire them in July to unload.
We can't say enough good things about both Aaron and his helpers. They treated our furniture unbelievably carefully, and wrapped it extremely carefully for loading into a POD. They were professional, amazingly polite, incredibly careful maneuvering on stairs. They worked extremely hard during the whole time.

Aaron and his team arrived on time. In fact, they were a little early and ready to get to work. They were complete prepared to do the job and did so with an effective plan.

Excellent team and highly recommended! We hired a two-person team to fill our moving truck. Aaron and his partner arrived promptly and got started working right away. They communicated well with us whenever we had any special packing needs, but otherwise worked very independently and did an excellent job of packing the truck. Th…Read Moreey were extremely efficient with their time (took only a few, very short breaks!) and made excellent use of the packing materials available, wrapping all of the furniture in pads (provided by us) and shrink wrap (provided by them). Plus, they had a great can-do attitude to go with it the care and effort they were putting into the job. Aaron (the owner) is clearly experienced at this whole moving thing -- the only casualty of the move was a scratched dresser top, where the padding used was just a thin sheet (and we were bouncing down 300 miles of springtime Michigan highway, so that's not bad!). I would happily recommend AB Industries (Muscle Men) to anyone needing help with a move!
Aaron and his team of four did an excellent job. They came in at the start and evaluated the situation, asked questions about my preferences, and really got a good understanding of how to proceed. I was also impressed that Aaron frequently came to me or my wife to advise on items during the move. I was equally impressed how Aaro…Read Moren directed his team regularly and communicated continually to make for a mistake free move. All of his helpers were professional, and respectful of our belongings. They made sure to not only pack the container, but to appropriately wrap and protect items that needed it. They definately maximized the use of the space in each container. We had a separate moving company come the next day, and Aaron and his team did a better job and was more efficient having moved more items. Great Service and excellent knowledge of what they are doing. Would definately use A.B. again, and in fact we have another move in 6-8 months, which we plan on using them again.
Aaron and Gary were great. They arrived on time and went about their business. They completed loading my PODS within two hours. They were very respectful to me and my property I liked how they got to it, didn't waste time and the fact that I didn't have to lift a finger.

Prior to the job date, Aaron communicated with me to hammer out the timing. Things were planned out properly. They arrived early to inspect the surroundings and timing worked out wonderfully with my truck drop-off. Granted I had a relatively small job, they finished within 30 minutes and everything went smoothly.
They showed up on time, and accommodated my change of plans, but I suspect that the two men that they sent were not professional, or experienced with expensive furniture. I explained to the owner that I had some very expensive pieces, and a very very heavy TV cabinet that needed TLC. I had 10 dozen furniture pads along with a …Read More22 ft. truck, which was more than sufficient for my move, and then some. I knew I was going to pay for more than the 2 hour job, and I didnt mind, as long as they did a good job. Unfortunately, I had to leave 2 pieces of my belongings behind! They could not fit it in the truck. At my destination, during unwrapping, we found numerous dents, gouges, scratches, chips, furniture blankets thrown in the back, soiled mattresses, wet boxes, broken things, and the list goes on! My furniture was not properly strapped to the walls of the truck. needless to say, I will probably fork out for Mayflower next time.
The men arrived on time and helped us so much with even more than we expected. Then we decided to extend the time so we could have them unload as well as load our truck as we originally asked for. The service was professional, friendly and absolutely top-notch in every respect. The men were VERY careful with our things and ex…Read Moreceptionally prepared. We could not ask for any better service to help with a move and this was the second time we used this service and when we move again, we will call them again. They worked hard and quickly and carefully. Would highly recommend
First off, I would like to state that we rarely take the time to write reviews - time just gets away too fast, but for Aaron and his team, my wife and I felt it was the least we could do. We moved from Florida to Michigan and had a quite a few items, Aaron and the team not only showed up on time, but the manor, speed, and profe…Read Moressionalism that they brought into our home was BEYOND EXPECTATIONS! They not only moved furniture with diligent care, the team was willing and able to do anything that was asked (unpacking, putting beds together, re-arranging, etc, etc.)! They showed up with all of the moving supplies that we needed for the job, in addition, Aaron put down plastic over all of our carpet and protected all of our floors prior to moving a thing, once that was done - they did not stop working / moving until the job was complete. I would use AB Industries again, and we would absolutely recommend them to anyone looking for a moving service.
A.B. Industries did a great job with my move. They arrived early, were very careful moving my furniture and items, and were efficient in the whole process! On top of it, all three movers were very friendly. I would highly recommend them to anyone who needs a great couple of people to assist them in their move.
I am so happy I decided to hire A.B. Industries to help with my move! They had a little trouble finding my home and arrived about 45 minutes late, but when they did get here they were well prepared, and they were very pleasant and hard working throughout the two hours they helped me move.

They arrived on time. Aaron and the other male were terrific. Hard working. The 3rd helper Samantha was a little too inexperienced. She was slow and inefficient packer. Her utilization of space in the boxes was poor and I'm a little concerned about some glass items not wrapped in paper before packing. Aaron thought she was aweso…Read Moreme I did not. She was sweet but that doesn't really count she was not a professional packer. There was a little glitch but they were accommodating. I should have been supervising a little more closely but I felt like I was getting in the way. My furniture and belongings did not fit on the pod which should have been realized earlier. I was lucky as most of my furniture was old and not really worth storing so the decision was made to leave some behind. I had to call and they had to empty and reload the pod as I wanted a few pieces of my furniture. ( for compensation). Where they really excelled is getting rid of all the trash and items I didn't want. I liked Aaron he remains calm answer his phone and is reliable. Now I just need to wait and see what my things look like when I unpack.
We had the absolute best experience with A.B. Industires during our move!!! They were incredibly professional and friendly, arrived on time, and happy to be on the job. Also, when my moving truck arrived several hours late, they were flexible and worked with me to accommodate my new time line on the fly.

I'm so happy I hired A.B. Industries to help us pack our stuff into two ABF U-Pack ReloCubes. They showed up on time with bubble wrap, plastic wrap, and immediately got to work moving things. I didn't have to do anything - easily within two hours it was all loaded, secured, and ready to go!

They arrived on time, prepared to go to work, and worked hard. However, Aaron (the business owner and lead worker) has serious issues when it comes to dealing with his helper/employee and with dealing with his customer/me. We were told that Aaron had worked with this helper on numerous previous occasions. However, Aaron r…Read Moreepeatedly treated this helper like a child, to the point of literally stopping work and lecturing him on how to do his job. I'm sure that this was very humiliating to the helper. I am fortunate that I never had to work for a boss like Aaron. To repeatedly dress down a subordinate in public is not the way to win loyalty and we were embarassed for Carl (the helper). "Praise in public, criticize in private." On the matter of the treatment of the customer/me, at one point Aaron appeared to be puzzled as to how to fit a tall piece of furniture into the truck. When I suggested a solution to the problem Aaron turned to the helper and told him to take his direction from me, then walked off the truck in a huff. In his defense he did apologize for his behavior just as soon as his temper cooled down and again at the end of the job. Nonetheless, this is unacceptable behavior. Although they did a decent job, I would not recommend this company.Show Response
