Moving reviews in Bloomington


I had an issue with the U-Haul so had to delay the guys from showing up. Once resolved the issue with the truck i called and they were there within 30 minutes. The 2 young men who showed up were very professional and polite. They loaded the truck very efficiently making sure that materials did not shift and that all space was used. No issues with damage at all. They were very cautious while making quick work of the loading. No loafing, never felt like they were trying to take longer than necessary to get more money from me. They were very impressive!!

They were on time, efficient, and provided great service getting all my stuff to Indy safely. The guys on the truck were polite and they were organized and had a system to quickly move items without damaging them.

The whole process was effortless - from booking the appointment to communication with the office and the two movers (on the day of the move) through completion of the move. The movers were on time and worked very efficiently. They were friendly, professional, and careful with our belongings. The move required taking some things to our home and delivering the rest of the items to a storage unit. It worked out very well in - and in under 3 hours. I would not hesitate to recommend this company to others or to use their services again myself.

They arrived the first day to pack, were punctual, very careful to properly wrap and box all of our household goods. The second day, they arrived at the appointed time, were very careful to not damage any of our goods, carefully wrapped and handled the grand piano, loaded the truck in the time frame they estimated. They arrived at our destination at the agreed time the next morning and reversed the process. All of the boxes were placed in the proper room, the grand piano was unpacked and carefully reassembled, they protected the new floors with walk cloths, and everything went smoothly. The bill was as estimated, and we were very happy with the overall experience. I would use them again and recommend them to friends and relatives.

The packers came to pack up my stuff on a Saturday. The 3 women who did that job arrived exactly on time. They worked hard and were pretty fast, considering how much I had to pack. I had organized a lot of my stuff before they came, which helped a lot; I had gone through every closet, drawer, and cabinet and cleaned out the stuff I didn't want to move. So the packers were able to work independently, without having to ask a lot of questions. I have 2 cats who are strictly indoor cats, and the packers were careful to keep them inside. All in all they did a great job, and nothing broke during the move.
The movers came the following Monday to move everything to my new home. They were a bit late, but said that it was because they stopped to get gas in the van (they deducted that time from the eventual total). They were also quite efficient and relatively fast, with everything except the piano. That took them a long time, and caused some swearing and bickering among the movers, which made me a little uncomfortable. When we arrived at my new place, the movers didn't always get the boxes (which the packers had carefully labelled) into the correct rooms. For example, the kitchen boxes didn't always find their way to the kitchen. which meant I had to relocate them myself--a difficult task given the weight of many of the boxes.
But overall I was pleased with the service: the estimate was quite accurate, and the work was done quickly and efficiently. I'd definitely use them again.

Arrived about 35 minutes after scheduled time but that was OK. They called to let me know they were just finishing another job and would be late. They walked in the door ready to work. Everything was moved with care and they kept asking if there was anything else I needed moved. Extremely polite and movers who knew their business. Thank you

and Nick. I will definitely call this company again.

Although my furniture did make it from Boston to Indiana without any damage and although the men who actually packed and delivered my furniture and other household goods were knowledgable, careful, efficient, courteous and professional, I would not recommend this company, nor will I use it again. I chose it because it submitted the lowest bid, and the service was of a correspondingly low quality. Once my furniture had been picked up in Boston, the company was unresponsive. It was difficult to find out where my furniture was or to get an estimate of when it would arrive. The company never called me: I had to call them several times, only to be told to call back in a few days. At one point I was told that the shipment was in transit, but that the company had no way of reaching the driver to find out where he was or when my furniture would arrive. Finally I was given the driver's cell phone number and was told to attempt on my own to reach the driver. I had been told that the furniture would arrive anywhere from 0 to 14 business days after pick-up and it took the full 14 days. The company does not seem to own its own trucks, so the furniture actually arrived a day later than promised because the truck the company had rented broke down and Five Star had to call the truck rental agency to arrange for a new truck. If you are on a tight schedule and need to be certain of the timely arrival of your furniture, I would not recommend this company, although when my furniture finally did make it to Indiana, it was intact. And the crew and drivers were hard working and careful to wrap and protect my furniture. The crews were also quite friendly and helpful about disassembling and re-assembling furniture and other items.

We packed all our loose belongings and this was okay with the movers. This saved us time during the move and money. The

staff were very professional and courteous. Everything turned out great. We were able to have our belongings delivered when we asked. My piano was moved perfectly. We had a very large sectional sofa that we needed to get to our son's house nearby. They delivered it at no extra charge. We would recommend

to anyone.

Completely unprofessional! Backed the moving truck up my steep driveway, loaded the furniture and then tore up my driveway when leaving. The weight of the furniture made the truck tailgate drag all the way down the driveway. They were stuck at the bottom of the driveway for 45 minutes. Afterwards the company did not reach out to apologize or offer to fix the driveway. I called multiple times and they only reached out after I posted a note to their actual website (which they deleted). Do not use this company!

Overall my experience with ABW Moving company was very disappointing. I used this company twice before and was quite happy with the complete process. This time was not as it had been before. This time I hired a packer at the last minute to help with

ends and was quoted a price that fit into my budget. Unfortunately, I was charged more than I had been expected to pay. I knew I'd be paying for boxes, but I had no idea I'd be paying for packing paper and box tape (which I didn't get to keep). It would of been nice, if the person who quoted me the price of $30 over the phone, had told me that it was per hour. He did tell me she could only stay for an 90 minutes but failed to mention it would cost $45.00 total. I asked the packer when she arrived how I would be billed for her services to her reply; "I don't know how he's going to do that".
When I unpacked the boxes she packed, I found her work to be inefficient. She used several sheets of paper to wrap plastic items that didn't need to be wrapped, and to take up space in boxes. I feel as though her excessive use of packing paper was used to nickel and dime me for more money. However; the movers did work efficiently. I can't say anything negative about their attitude and overall performance, except for the fact that they came without tools. They used some of mine (which I still can't find even though Im completely unpacked) and borrowed some form a neighbor. Even though they all had a great attitude, they did a rush job and failed to finish putting together a piece of furniture or two. This was very disappointing as one of the pieces was my two year olds bed. I learned that it was not put together completely when I found the hardware laying around the house.
Another unexpected surprise was that no one knew how to, or would even attempt to, hook up my washer and dryer. I was told that they didn't perform that service. But, they did they did so the past two times I hired this company. Needless to say I had the challenge of hooking them up myself on top of everything else I had to do.
The final and biggest disappointment came when I received my bill. I was charged for an extra hour for traveling to my home before the move and after, too. Im no idiot, so I challenged that payment. The driver called his boss and told him that I would not use their services in the future because no one told me about this unexpected charge. They weren't driving to or from Indianapolis, for goodness sakes! And, I never charged paid them a traveling fee before. I would not recommend this company again. If you chose to do so make sure you get all'f the charges in writing and watch packers closely.
