The staff was very friendly and professional. They were able to accommodate my needs with a moving date almost immediately, which I really appreciated. The movers came earlier than expected, but they... did not rush through the job--they took care of every item carefully as if it were their own! When we finished packing up all our stuff they even asked us where we wanted everything put. It felt like an old friend helping me move again rather than just someone doing grunt work for minimum wage because that's what people usually think about when you're hiring more

The process was smooth and professional from start to finish. The contacts I had arranging and estimating the move were very friendly, responsive, and available every step of the way. My team on... moving day showed up with a smile on their faces ready for work! They took everything in stride- including my tricky stairs which they handled like champs; even though it made things more difficult than usual - what can you do? 🙂 These guys are awesome!read more

I would not recommend this company for moving. Crew was supposed to be at my place at 12, didn’t get there until 4, so by that time the crew was tired and frustrated. They didn’t like the fact that... the place I was moving into had 2 flights of stairs, so instead of being careful they manhandled my furniture. The dining room table, the living room tv stand, the bedroom dresser and my portable fireplace, which were all in mint condition now have scratches all over them, they chipped a huge chunk out of the tv stand. Idk how they have a five star rating. Do not use this company if you value the condition of your more

We cannot praise Abreu Movers enough for how great they did on our recent move! They were always prompt with replying to emails, and the moving crew were amazing! They made sure to protect any... fragile items, moved quickly, and told some great jokes. We had an upright piano to be moved along with our other belongings, and they moved the piano with such ease and worked well as a team. We requested the Truck, and are happy to know that a portion of our bill will be donated to Cancer Care. We will definitely be recommending them to anyone we know that is moving, and will use their services again for any future moves we more

What can I say? Moving itself is stressful. But Abreu Movers made it one of the easiest experiences I've had. I'll be honest, I do not usually use moving companies. My father owned a moving company... for years and I worked for him. So I know what I'm doing and I know what to watch for. The crew that moved us was legitimately the best crew I have ever seen work together and exceeded every expectation I had. I will definitely be using them again to move some pieces of furniture and when I move again in 5 years 😉 communication was top notch and they move fast! Yet they still will talk, engage and just all around be a fun group of people to be around. Thank you so much! My girls and I couldnt be happierread more

Extremely unprofessional and unreliable business. Had a last minute move and asked ahead of time if they definitely had the availability as I needed to schedule movers asap. I was assured the had... the availability and would "not waste my time if they didn't". I continuously followed up with them to see if they were done "working on my quote" as I needed a booking confirmation asap. Spent two days trying to follow up with them just for them to respond after two days saying "No we are not available and cannot help - sorry." - Horrible customer service and all around terrible more
