We had Abbott Moving Co move us in mid July 2013 to Ft Worth and they were outstanding! They gave us a very reasonable quote which was way below fellow movers. There service was excellent, the 3 men knew their job and did it very carefully and professionally. I appreciated that they were very careful on how they loaded. We did most of the packing ourselves but they provided boxes and paper delivered to the door. The girls at the office were always professional and courteous. We were very pleased with Abbott and would highly recommend them to everyone.

I contacted Debbie Johnson after being rescheduled for a later date by another company ( Willis Permian Movers ) she was able to squeeze us in her busy schedule with very little notice, and like trish said they were outstanding, at half the price that other company quoted me, her crew was respectful, kind, courteous, and worked their butts off (on a very hot day I might add) to get our belongings packed up, moved and unpacked as quickly as possible to minimize our cost. Thanks again to Debbie and her crew you're Awesome! Roland & Michelle Gandy

Midland 2 BrownwoodI called Debbie and set up a pick up from a local furniture store to be delivered to our home at Lake Brownwood. She set up a time which we have to change and she had no problem with our rescheduling. The men that did the move were professional, courteous and willing to place our furniture wherever we chose. They stayed until after dark so we could have our beds set up for the night. I would highly recommend these movers and will use them again in a heartbeat.
Tips & Advices
Yes, it’s best to empty drawers, wardrobes and chests before a move. Items always get knocked around a bit, and doors can fly open even if they’ve been taped. In fact, more often than not, movers will want to remove the drawers from a dresser--or disassemble the wardrobe to be more space-efficient.
Yes, it is customary to tip movers, but the amount varies widely. For full-service moves, a 5 percent tip is suggested, although, for extra service, some people go up to 10 percent . For small local movers, you can give each mover $10 for a few-hour job, or $20-$40 for jobs that take longer.
A bill of lading is the legal contract for the move. It provides a detailed receipt, in addition to a contract between the client and the mover. It authorizes the mover to transport the goods from one specific point to another, and it outlines the exact scope of services, with cost breakdown for those services. It also provides an itemized list of the inventory, and carrier liability protection for each declared item. Finally, it specifies the payment arrangement. Make sure to go over your itemized list extremely carefully before finalizing the paperwork--and get a copy of the full document. A good mover will go over everything on the bill of lading with the customer.
There are several items that moving companies will not move – those items will be listed on a document as “non-allowables.” These items typically fall in three categories: perishables, sentimental/personal items, and hazardous material. Perishables are food and plants. Sentimental/personal value is up to the client to decide, but usually includes jewelry, medical and dental records, personal paperwork, valuables and collectibles. Hazardous material is the tricky category, since it includes a lot of everyday items found in the garage, garden or kitchen. For example, cleaning liquids and pesticides both are considered non-allowable by many companies. Some go so far as to disallow nail polish and batteries.
A binding estimate means that the moving company cannot charge more than the stated amount, though they can lower the final bill if the scope of the job was smaller than expected. A non-binding moving estimate is more likely to wind up costing more than expected, since the movers can increase their rates for unforeseen variables like stairs, “long carry” and materials.
