The price was great, which is why I went with this company overall. When I arrived to pick up my truck, however, it seemed that they don't always have trucks available at the site you reserve, which seems crazy to me. I had reserved a 12' truck to move a lot of large furniture pieces, but they almost gave me a van (not big enough). They ended up giving me a 16' truck without extra charge, which ended up being fine for my job. Just be aware that you may not get what you expect.
The company was so well-organized and I knew exactly what to expect based on their prompt explanations. There was no-second guessing. The delivery driver took extra care not to hurt my Mom’s plants when they first dropped off the POD. It was also very easy to change my plans when I discovered I would need to move sooner. A quick phone call to the company let me change my POD pick-up date and drop-off date. I’m also glad they allow for same day drop-off and pick-up as my apartment complex doesn’t allow PODS to remain overnight. A little spendy, but I highly recommend!
I'd defiantly want to rent a diesel truck again. I didn't have to fuel until almost my destination (600 miles) which saved a lot of time! I was a little nervous at first driving the truck since I've never drove a truck with air brakes before but once you get used to it, it wasn't that bad. I felt like a trucker! The truck was very nice and comfortable.
We were thrilled with our PODS experience. The city service department was very helpful in arranging everything for our complicated move. The driver showed up early and we weren't charged until the movers showed up a bit later. He was also very courteous over the phone. It went from being our biggest headache of a move to the easiest.
Kush Movers helped us load a trailer for a cross country move. They showed up on time and the owner, Kashawn, was very responsive to several phone messages. They were quick in loading the trailer, but could have been a little more careful. I asked Kashawn to slow down a bit to allow the workers to be a little more careful, but that did not happen. The loaders were extremely considerate and kind and I can't say enough good things about them. I can recommend this company, but would suggest that they take a little more time to ensure the protection of the belongings.
Highly recommend and will use again; Relocube was in excellent condition. Recommend significant cushioning under any wood furniture since vibration over distance affects the furniture - wish I had been warned. If you are moving to a TBD address, be sure to query ABF extensively to ensure Relocube gets delivered to optimum location. This cube ended up going form MA to PA to MA for a very small address change since it was out of the distribution zone. It ended up being delivered by a two truck that could have been used from the first location - very odd and added significant time to the delivery.
The other major company I had reserved earlier notified me the previous evening that they would not have the needed truck available. I scrambled last minute and located a Uhaul outlet nearby with the necessary truck. At pick-up time all hell broke loose: the app on my phone wouldn't work, the computer at the service station froze while performing an update. Undeterred, the staff and owner of the station went to work on personal phones, computers and a sense of urgency to get us out of the hole. Our move seemed to be doomed from the start but Uhaul saved the day. Thank you.
ABF was prompt on the delivery of the unit both at the origin location and the destination location. Both locations were also in constant contact during their respective legs of the journey. While some items did get damaged in transit that is no fault of ABF and is a reminder that if your items are not secured properly then you never know what can happen. I would gladly use their service again for a long distance move as the container was well constructed and they do not force you to pay storage fees if you do not need them.
