The Good

  • Rates Charged Hourly or by Flat Rate
  • Storage Facilities
  • Piano Moving Services
  • Flexible Valuation Options

Rates Charged Hourly or by Flat Rate

Some moving companies charge per employee, per mile, or per hour worked. There are pros and cons to each, but A2B Moving and Storage’s payment plan offers three movers for three hours, four movers for three hours, or an overall flat rate. Customers can request a free quote to receive more specifics on which rate would be best for them. It's important to note that the only way to receive a flat-rate quote is with a physical examination of your home, as opposed to a virtual one for an hourly rate quote.

Storage Facilities

A2B Moving and Storage, as indicated in the name, offers both moving and storage services. The storage centers are all secure and up to standard. Currently, the only storage center mentioned on the company’s website is located in Alexandria, Virginia, perhaps making it difficult for customers with longer moves to store in other locations.

Piano Moving Services

While many well-established moving companies offer piano moving services, A2B Moving and Storage not only offers this service but places great emphasis that pianos will be moved safely and efficiently. The company ensures pianos will be in the exact same condition when they arrive at their new location as when they left the old one and that the customer will be exceptionally satisfied with the care.

Flexible Valuation Options

A2B Moving and Storage offers a variety of valuation options. Valuation acts as “insurance” for damaged or missing items during a move. Customers can contact the company to learn about these different plans, which include anything from replacing the item with a new one to paying cash for its worth.

The Bad

  • Little Information on Long-Distance and International Moves
  • Equipment Rental
  • Damaged or Missing Items

Little Information on Long-Distance Moves

A2B Moving and Storage company does offer long-distance moving options but provides little information about this on its website. The company does mention it takes weekly trips to California and Florida, however, it fails to mention what that entails for customers needing to move long distances to those locations or to others.

Additionally, international moves are mentioned as a service on the company website, but almost no additional information like pricing, documentation, or shipping costs are mentioned. Adding this information on the website would help customers know if moving with A2B Moving and Storage is right for their long-distance move to or from D.C.

Damaged or Missing Items

Many reviews expressed missing or damaged items and poor customer service, however, these complaints were filed mainly before a managerial shift in 2018. Since then, customer reviews have improved significantly. 

Equipment Rental

Equipment such as moving dollies, wardrobe boxes, blankets, etc. used by the company to move your belongings that are not returned immediately after the move is subject to a security deposit equal to their original value held for 14 days. After 14 days, the customer will be charged 50 percent of the security deposit, and after 45 days, 100 percent of the deposit. A2B Moving and Storage typically charges by the hour, so the time it takes to return equipment after usage may increase the total fee.

The Bottom Line

A2B Moving Services is a well-experienced company helping customers move in the D.C. area. The company lists a wide variety of moving services on its website like residential, business, home, and piano moves. The company primarily focuses on moves within the D.C. area and unfortunately provides little information on its services with cross-country or international moves. 

The company mentions that it provides storage services in Virginia, helping customers transitioning from D.C. to a nearby location to store items in a secure and well-regulated area. For customers making longer trips and needing other storage locations, no other storage areas are mentioned. 

The company offers a variety of payment options like flat rates and a by-the-hour option, in addition to several valuation (insurance) options. This flexibility is helpful for customers to ensure their items make it to their new destination safely with minimal damage.

Several negative reviews can be a point of concern for customers, however, the majority of these were given before a new leadership transition in 2018. That coupled with the lack of long-distance moving information on the website, however, may deter some long-distance or international movers.

For customers living in the D.C. area looking to move relatively close by, A2B Moving and Storage can be a good option. For those looking to move long distances or who need storage outside of Virginia, other companies may be a better fit.
