“American Moving was very responsive and professional. They showed up on time the day of the scheduled day and carefully moved my furniture and belongs. The workers were very cordial and very understanding of the uncertainty on my part where the pieces of furniture would fit. They placed furniture and boxes where we asked. The experience from the time I contacted them until my household was relocated was excellent.”

“Called and scheduled two weeks in advance, they showed up professionally equipped, moved everything quickly and carefully. The truck was full to the ceiling. We had a lot of stuff. They could have squeezed it for two trips if they really wanted to but they made it one trip which shows honesty as two trips would have costed me extra due to the distance. I highly recommend them.”
