Hi Lisa,

Very satisfied with my move back to Bribie. I had the same team of guys who were friendly and efficient and took care in their work.

Would recommend you guys.

Our move and storage by Ab Fab during our recent total renovation was handled well.  We were particularly thankful that we were able to easily change dates when the build completion date extended.

The move went well with friendly and capable removals men.

Kind regards

Thanks! Sal

“We found the guys at Ab Fab to be just that! Courteous and careful and respectful of our belongings at all times. Everything arrived at our new home without a mark, dent, or chip! By far the best removals team we’ve ever had (we’ve moved many times over the years).

Joanna Harrison, June 2019, Aug 2019

I sold my house – new house wasn’t ready – so all furniture went in to AbFab storage – which was great. Storage rates were reasonable – and then when my new property ready to move in – some furniture had to stay in storage for collection some months later ( by granddaughter). A little fragmented – but AbFab ran all the moves really well.

I highly recommend AbFab for storage and removals.

Many thanks team

Jane, Apr 2019

Ab Fab were an absolute pleasure to deal with … from the initial phone enquiry right through to the moving of the furniture. They provided excellent service and were extremely helpful and friendly. The guys were meticulous in the handling of our belongings and not a thing was damaged. We couldn’t recommend them highly enough!

Linda & Graham Hill, Feb 2019

I have now moved with Ab Fab movers 3 times. Lisa and the team are so professional and always happy to help.  I can’t compliment them enough

Jason Wright, Feb 2019

“Super happy with your service, Thank you”

Adrienna Ingram, Apr 2018

“Thanks for your quote, we have a cheaper removalist to move us unfortunately but wanted to give you the courtesy of letting you know. The gentleman I spoke to on phone was extremely helpful and thanks for all the advice. Thanks again. (Note to website readers from owner: I am happy to publish all feedback. We don’t win every piece of business we quote for, and we don’t have the cheapest hourly rate, because we believe price is not everything and you get what you pay for. Even when we aren’t successful in winning business, we like to give good service and add value, because there is always next time!)”

Alicia, Jun 2017

“Thanks for all guys were just fantastic yesterday.:-)”

Alexandra Vulin, Jun 2017

“The Sunshine Coast Private Hospital used AB Fab to relocate staff within the hospital campus. The team were great, communicated well with the staff, moved at a time that was agreeable to all and made sure that they left the area tidy removing all boxes after use. They also called back to check if everything was satisfactory. I would certainly use AB FAB again.”

The boys did an awesome job and moved all our furniture with careful consideration and with a smile on their faces – even though we had a large amount of heavy filing cabinets and an abundance of stairs! Job well done – thank you so much!”

Also both lovely guys and did a very professional move and in a speedy time frame.

We have moved before and let me assure you this is not always the case and so the full positive experience was not something we took for granted.
Cheers and thanks – will recommend ab fab to our friends.”

Amanda C, Jul 2014

Hot day + two storey house + solid timber furniture = removallist’s nightmare .
Your guys deserved a medal!

Thank you and thank you again.

Alison Smith, MSC Concreting Constructions, Jan 2013

“It was an absolute pleasure dealing with abfab, from the first phone conversation with Lisa, to Jos packing up my kitchen and then Dan and Jay doing an amazing job moving us to our new home. Dan and Jay were polite, hardworking and I felt comfortable with them in my home and handling our possessions. I really liked the way Dan and Jay introduced themselves immediately when they arrived, very courteous and comforting. Thanks abfab, we will definitely be recommending you.”

Alison Smith, Jan 2013

“I am happy to pass on my complete satifaction with the moving job you guys did for me. Efficient, friendly, and affordable.. I have moved quite a few times, and in my opinion, your company tops the list for overall service.”

Aileen Jones, Oct 2012

“Thank you Ab Fab for moving us a second time! We very much appreciate your ongoing services and will continue using you for our future residential and business moves.

We recommend you to our client’s and our friends who need quality removalist services at competitive prices. Your staff are trustworthy, great to deal with and do an amazing job to care for the furniture and walls of the outgoing and incoming premises.

The best part of the service was the efficiency with the move being completed under the original estimated time frame. Thanks again for your assistance.”

Aaron Griffiths On-Site Law, Aug 2012

“The odds were stacked against John and Sam on the day, but I am pleased to report they overcame them with strength and grace. The boys were more sure footed than mountain goats and stronger than gorillas as they negotiated my deadly Coolum driveway, which resembled a slip and slide after a tropical storm unfolded around them.
Nothing was a hassle for the lads, not even that cliché call from the wife “ah actually boys, I think that would look better over there…”.
Never have two lads been more deserving of a cold beer, and I was more than happy to supply a whole carton of these at the end of the successful transition.
There is something truly satisfying about watching other men lift your three seater Italian leather sofa, and I look forward to doing it again next time I move.”

Aaron Griffiths, Onsite Law, Aug 2012

“I would like to thank u for making my move go smoothly.
The boys that attended and moved me (Jay and Joel) were very polite and careful, they showed care and placed items where asked.
Thank u again, i will definitely recommend your service.

Access Insulation Morgan Newton, Jun 2012

“All went well with the move, Pauline was very pleased with your service.”

Alli Brown, Jan 2012

“Thank you so much for your help, I hope to do business with you again.”
