Our Professional Team At Abels

We strive on excellence at Abels Moving Services. We have a friendly team comprised of experts in various fields including national and international imports and exports. The moving industry fluctuates year on year, and we are here to ensure your moving experience is stress-free.

We strengthen the skills and expertise of our team by maintaining persistent training in our own ‘in-house’ training centre. Not only do we provide this internally, but we are often working alongside other relocation businesses to strengthen the moving industry as a whole. Our moving skills courses train every team member to understand the logistics and planning included when moving house. Our strong team foundation has assisted with various country estate moves and relocation of valuables.

Our removal teams are comprehensively security vetted and have undergone intensive training to work in the most sensitive areas including Diplomatic, Government and Royal establishments. All removal teams are easily identified by their full uniform and company ID cards. They also undergo regular monitoring by both our Training Instructors and Quality Manager helps maintain the standards of service required.

As you are inviting our removal team into your home, we have taken special care to ensure our staff are professional and friendly with the highest standards of behaviour. They will attend to your property in full uniform, allowing us to be approachable at all times for any questions or queries. They will be companions in your move and you’ll find the presence of an Abels crew will transform a stressful move into a pleasurable stress-free experience.

Abels Moving Services is proud of our position as one of the UK’s leading specialist international moving companies and the journey we have taken to get here. Decades of experience have helped to shape our home removals company culture and the approach we take to our work.

Moving Home with Abels Moving Services

Move home from UK to USA

First class advice and support from beginning to end. Staff were very professional as well as charming and supportive. Team went the extra mile and then some. Furniture and effects packed with care and arrived unscathed. Thank you Abels.

Mr A Whitehead


Abels were able to arrange a virtual survey same day and move us within a week. Great team of guys who packed for us and accomplished the move in 2.5 days.

Tony Savill

Great customer service

Great customer service with excellent communication the whole way. Excellent packing: everything arrived in mint condition.


Abels were superb from start to finish.

A great high quality service all round and the crew were outstanding throughout the move, end to end.

Phillip Jones

As always Abels really delivered

As always Abels really delivered (pun intended!). The crew were great, very helpful and tidy and worked incredibly hard. I’ve never used any other company, and for good reason!

Charlotte Graham-Cumming

What made your company great for me was…

What made your company great for me was the experience and confidence of your staff. I had a few problems, as my move was an international one involving HM Customs, and I found the paper work difficult as, due to the Covid lockdown, I initially failed to meet the statutary requirements. Thanks to your excellent lady’s expert guidance I was able to navigate the inevitable battle of wits and get everything through without difficulty in the end. A big thank you to everyone involved, but most especially to Marie.

Glynis Mashaleh

Professional service and polite staff

Van arrived early and the staff are very helpful and polite. Well recommended!

Mrs Phaik Choo

Efficient and warm

I had a moving from Canada to the UK, and the Canadian shipping company passed my moving to them for the UK’s side (I didn’t chose them). They were really professional, communication in advance and delivering as promised. The Canadian company gave me some wrong info, but Abels team answered my questions patiently. Another nice thing was their driver who was friendly and helpful.


Moving from Abu Dhabi, UAE to London, UK

I cannot thank you enough for the overall service and attentiveness in ensuring I had my belongings!

Ms Stanners

Another brilliant move!

The whole process was smooth and the team worked relentlessly over two days to deliver everything and get it in the right places. Nothing was too much trouble and not a quibble when we asked them to move things from one room to another.

Would highly recommend Abels to any prospective customer.

London to Norway, excellent service

Everything with Abels went as planned. And every box got delivered in good order, so thank you to Andy and Jonathan for that!

I am very pleased with Abels and will use them again in the future.

Far exceeded expectations

Everything was packed beautifully and at each stage Andy and John offered their help which was invaluable with their experience.

We certainly would never hesitate to recommend your company to anyone else
