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.

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
