Looks like I'm not alone... Ron was very nice at first when setting up an appointment, and his guys were nice, too - however - they were 90 minutes late and extremely slow. I actually ended up moving large pieces along with them for the last hour at my previous residence because they were taking such a long time. I've been through a few moves and usually, the guys are running to the truck to make the most of your money and time. One of the movers basically demanded a tip, and they were in such a hurry to get to the credit union to cash my check that they left all of their paperwork behind - which I would guess, makes any of our "agreement" null and void since they don't have anything signed from me. I found out later some of my items were not moved, and I had to buy new items to replace what Ron and his team had lost. After three months of trying to get a response of any kind from owner Ron Ferguson, I basically gave up. It was a small request - a $60 credit for a few bar stools his movers lost (when I paid $800 + tip) - and as a small business owner myself, I would expect much better customer service (not just before they get paid). He was recommended by a friend, and so I am hugely disappointed, and just want to make sure any of you looking for a mover know to go elsewhere. There are many other options in Denver for you that would do a much better job and take better care of their customers.
Where do I start! First of all, they were 2 hours and 40 minutes late with no call to inform me of any delay. When the two men arrived, they complained about how they got the short end of the straw, referring to moving my belongings, because I was on the 4th floor, however, there was an elevator. They also complained that my furniture was too heavy. The owner quoted that my 1 bedroom, 975 sq. ft. apartment would take no more than 3-4 hrs to complete the job. That said, I was prepared to pay no more than $360 for the job since in was $90/hr. Since they were very late, I called the owner to see what kind of compensation he would offer. He was pissed off at my request and told me they could just unload the truck and forget the job. After he calmed down, He decided to come and see what the hold up was because they were quickly approaching 4 hrs and not even half way through the job. When he arrived, his crew told him they were unable to get the couch on the elevator. Now just to note, the prior movers, who moved me in, were able to load the couch on the elevator. Anyway, the owner, along with another crew member he brought with him attempted to load it on the elevator and were unsuccessful so they attempted to shove it through the stairway door. When I asked that he not damage my couch, he sarcastically said, "oh thanks a lot, that's exactly what I was going to do". With that, he drops my couch to the floor, leaving it in front of the stairwell and a neighbors door, and tells his crew they are leaving to drop off what was loaded in the truck and that they would not be taking it into the apartment. I begged the first crew to move my couch from the stairwell door, onto the truck and they obliged. They then left for the new apartment. When I arrived at the new apartment, minutes later, they were in front of the wrong building preparing to unload my belongings. I made it known that they were at the wrong apartment and they followed me to the correct one. The owner must have been touch by an angel because he had a change of mind and had the crew take my belongings inside and he discounted the price of my move. I did have to hire another moving company and rent a truck to move the rest of my apartment. I do not recommend Abe Lincoln Movers. The name is deceiving and the owner was less professional than a 12 yr old boy. This move was a nightmare and very stressful because of the attitude of the crew and the owner. DON'T USE ABE LINCOLN MOVERS!!!
Just left this review on Google and Yelp: This was the worst moving experience I've ever had. Here are the highlights: - 1 1/2 hours late for an 8:00 am appt. No excuse for that! I was the first appt. of the day for the movers. - They didn't wrap my expensive Crate and Barrel furniture while moving it onto the truck, and when I complained they started double-wrapping EVERYTHING and the move was several hours over the scheduled time (the movers told me they were told they'd be done by 1 pm, and we were finished at about 6 pm) - One of the movers, Damion, broke my shredder and didn't note it on forms or offer to pay for it - They damaged the walls in my apartment, scratched my front door, and apparently had no idea how to get my loveseat out, despite my telling them to to take the feet off - The truck broke down in the middle of moving and it took an hour for them to get it fixed - When I complained to the company while the truck was broken, the OWNER showed up and yelled at me, saying the movers said I had told them to double-wrap everything when I most certainly did not All of this, and I didn't even get offered a discount, or an apology, nothing. I had to pay $550 for this horrible service. DON'T USE THIS COMPANY!!!
My wife and I have moved five times over the last 20 years, but this by far was the best relocation experience we have ever had. Not only did Abe Lincoln Movers deliver everything they promised, they went way above and beyond to make sure we were happy. The crew members were professional, courteous, well-dressed, well-spoken, and on time. Not a single item was broken, nothing was scratched, and nothing was missing – a first for us. Furthermore, the crew patiently worked with us to make sure we were happy with the set-up after the move. Another pleasant surprise - Ron and his outfit did not add in additional and unexpected fuel or trip charges – their quote was hands down the best among their local competition and they kept every word of it – the price we were quoted was the price we got! This crew hustled and worked fast, but carefully! If we ever have to move again, Abe Lincoln Movers definitely has our business.
Rude! The driver cursed me out and refused to move his truck. Once the video game out he became much more cooperative. I sent the video to the owner and he condoned the behavior of his employee. Threatening thugs until they're on record! I can't even imagine the games they would play if they broke some of your stuff. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5fQxioPelIU
I booked a move through Ron and was a little nervous. I have used moving companies before and have had many instances where they were late or didn't come at all, or made me nervous about the way they handled my belongings. Ron put me at ease and his staff was AMAZING. They showed up on time and in uniform, they worked so hard and moved me into my new home in record time. I am very happy about my experience and would highly recommend Abe Lincoln Movers!
