ABF--They are the best!!

Pros:GREAT PRICE which includes the cost of gas and a driver to boot! REPUTABLE

Cons:ABF is not a very clever name. That is the ONLY con.

The Bottom Line: This company is very professional and no hidden fees. The gas and driver are included in the cost. You pack and they will drive.


ABF is the company for you if you want to save money, be able to track the moving van online, want to be the only one to break your stuff, and don't want to drive a huge truck across the country. I can't believe that they are cheaper than all of the "haul it yourself" companies with their puny little trucks. With ABF you pay only for the amount of space that you use not for the whole truck. We moved from California to Oklahoma. The company came and dropped off the truck at the time promised and they gave us an estimate of 5 working days. They actually made it in 3. Here are the best things about this company: 1. PRICE...much cheaper and no hidden fees AT ALL (the gas is included in the cost). 2. This company has been in business for a long time and they are reputable (check movingscams.com) 3. You are the only ones to touch your stuff. 4. You only pay for the amount of space you use--not for the truck. 5. They have professional drivers 6. You can track the truck online as it moves to its destination. 7. Okay, here are some tips to make your move with ABF the work well. 1...Make your reservation on line and save 25$ 2...Tell them if you will need the ramp (which is free if you use more than a certain amount of feet) or if it is more convenient you can load at their dock. 3...Have them drop off the truck on Friday since they do not do business on the weekends and I don't think they drive on the weekends either. 4...Figure out where you are going to park it and make sure that it is okay with zoning. We parked it on a public street next to our apartment and the old geezers from the retirement home on the other side of the street came out and shook their canes, but the police said that it could stay for 72 hours since it was not in front of a hydrant or anything, but you might want to call ahead and see what your area permits. 5...This one is kind of important...If you have never packed before, learn how it is done. ABF will send you a free video. PACK TO THE ROOF AND VERY TIGHT! You don't want things to move around so you are going to have to figure out what can take the weight and be on the bottom. 6...Wrap all of your furniture legs and sides because the little bit of contact over that many miles of jiggling will cause things to be rubbed. We had some rubbing on table legs and on a couch. Okay, I hope that this helps. I can't believe that I haven't heard of this company before and that those thieves of Penske and U-Haul seem like the only options one has. Also there are very disreputable companies that will drive off with your things or hold them hostage until you come up with more money once your things get across state line. Interstate laws are difficult and people end up paying thousands more than what they expected. Have a wonderful move.
