The Smoothest and Easiest Move in Gainesville, VA

“I cannot recommend this company enough. I’ve moved multiple times and it always ended up being a chore. Working with the American Moving & Storage team was an absolute dream. From the initial request for quote to the final walk through, this was the smoothest and easiest move I’ve ever had.

The team was incredible and paid close attention to exactly where items would be placed in my new home while packing. Everything was meticulously packed and not a single item had even a scratch on it. The communication was amazing from day 1 and continued on move day with the team. Hopefully I’m done moving for awhile, but I won’t hesitate to call this team again should the need arise.”

Moving Home Items into Storage in Sterling, VA


“I can’t emphasis how great American Moving & Storage was. We moved our house into storage, and they met every single one of our requests as to how we wanted it stored. They showed up on time, and got to work. We had 5 movers and every single one of them was pleasant and professional, from the experienced to the new, even at the end of the long day. The team was nothing short of fantastic and accommodating when our situation and expectations kept changing, and was always easy to reach, and went above and beyond. They were very responsive when I was worried we were missing an item (we were not!). Really, a fantastic group, not at all costly, and still competitive with other big-big groups on every level.”

A Great Moving Experience in Fairfax, VA

“I cannot say enough good things about this company. They are super responsive to emails, texts, and calls—within minutes of initially reaching out to them for a quote, I was contacted by a member of the staff. The quote they gave me ended up being what the final total was, so they don’t jerk you around. The movers arrived when they said they would and worked quickly yet carefully. The movers were also very courteous and professional. I hate moving and this experience completely put me at ease. I would absolutely recommend American Moving & Storage to my family, friends, and colleagues.”
