Allen and Coles Moving Systems Reviews

A slightly belated thank you to the team at Allen and Coles for making our move last month from Falmouth to Cape Elizabeth go so smoothly. The entire crew of Billy, Louie, Bruce, Phil and Bob and was most helpful and we enjoyed working with them. Please pass on our thanks to them as well. We’ll be sure to recommend Allen and Coles to others and would be happy to act as a reference for you at any time.

I want to personally thank you for the way you dealt with our mutual clients. When our clients asked us to recommend a moving company, I thought long and hard before making a recommendation. I am always hesitant to provide referrals because my reputation could be negatively impacted if the job goes bad. I had always heard great things about you and your company, Therefore, I took the chance and recommended you.

I was sleepless about the referral when our clients told us afterwards that they had a $25,000.00 piano and many extremely valuable assets. Furthermore, they were the most detail oriented borrowers I had ever dealt with, Ever!

I am so impressed by the quality service you provided. Driving all the way to Ellsworth to provide an estimate and personally verifying each step of the move meant the world to me and our clients. I just got off the phone with them and they raved about the move. They are very difficult people to please and they were raving about everyone on your crew. It turns out she used to manage a moving company in Mount Dessert Island, Maine. Obviously, she would know what goes into doing a great move.

She mentioned that “although the crew had a few tattoos” she found them to be extremely respectful, hardworking, and knowledgeable.

I don’t make referrals unless I believe in someone and I certainly won’t write recommendation letters unless someone exceeds the expectations of our clients.

Please feel free to use me as a reference at any time. You made me look great in the eyes of our client. Please thank your staff for us as well.

I would like to take this opportunity to express our appreciation for a job very well done. With your efficient planning and your enthusiasm to successfully complete the move, it was done in as timely and efficient a manner as possible.

As a long-term care pharmacy serving 3,000 residents, from Bangor to York, we are open 7 days a week. We closed at 6:30pm on a Friday, and with your hard work throughout the night, we were able to open at 8:00am on Saturday, without any interruptions in our service to our residents. Your crew was efficient and courteous, as well as careful with our equipment.

Again, thank you and your crew for making our move as successful as it could be.

I’m writing to thank you for your careful and thorough move last week.

Moving a group of scientists is a devilish task, given the implications of losing or breaking instruments or data files. So far as we know everything got to the right office or lab, intact and whole.

We also appreciated the diligence and patience your team showed while reassembling our used furniture. Seeing your guys sill hard at it during dinnertime made an impression on all of us.

As you know all too well, moving can be stressful. You and your team made it easy for us!

Donald W. Perkins, President

Thank you for our recent move from Vermont to Augusta, Maine. Some people say Customer Service is dead, but you and your crews are testament that customer service is alive and well at Allen and Coles.

First, I have to give your credit for being aggressive and not push with wanting to bid on our move. It was your savvy knowledge that picked up on our move to Maine and reached out to me. Naturally, we were approached by other movers in both Vermont and Maine, but your price was fair and you took the time to explain every line item in the invoice. It made us secure knowing that your price was as quoted and there were no surprises.

Secondly, our recent snowy weather posed some challenges for your move in and move out crews. Both crews took it all in stride and the packing, moving and unloading was professional and smooth.

I would certainly use Allen and Coles Moving again in the future. Please be sure to pass this letter on to everyone who was involved in our move.

Curtis Picard

I wanted to write a note of thanks for all your hard work and that of your assistant Carol. Your entire office was so accommodating with our cross-country move to Montana from Maine that I would not hesitate to use your company again if the need arose.

I really appreciate that fact that you and Carol worked so hard in getting our credit card credited the difference after the move as it was substantial and definitely came in handy!

The professionalism and comfort I had with your organization can not be duplicated!

Thanks again and I will be in touch if I decide to move back to Maine!

Exceeded Every Expectation

I recently needed to move on short notice. Unfortunately, I live in Downtown Portland on the 3rd floor of a walk-up building. From the initial consultation through scheduling and the actual move, no detail was left unaddressed. My team of Mike and Anthony arrived on-time and with the proper tools to affect a successful move. Both were polite, respectful and took exceptional care of my belongings. Nothing was damaged, broken or missing. Their positive attitude and focused approach to my move put me immediately at ease. Both demonstrated a level of service so rarely seen today. The ACTUALLY cared! The owner(s) of Allen and Coles have every right to be justifiably proud of this outstanding team. I know I am. And that’s why I will contract with them again when I need moving services. Thank you Anthony and Mike! Helluva Job!!!

Beyond Expectations.

I recently booked Allen and Coles for a small residential move. Unfortunately, I live in Downtown Portland on the 3rd floor of a walk-up building. I did not know what to expect for my move. The entire process, from first interaction to the final box being unloaded was handled by this outstanding team of dedicated, professional and knowledgeable team. The entire process was handled in the most fluid manner possible. Mike and Anthony, my actual movers, showed up exactly on time; handled my possessions with the utmost care and displayed a level of service so rarely seen these days. Every question was answered and nothing was damaged or lost. They came prepared for every possible scenario and no request was ignored. The owner or owners of Allen and Coles have every right to be justifiably proud of their employees, especially Mike and Anthony. Both of these men represent the organization at the highest possible level. Thank you to EVERYONE who helped make an incredibly difficult day so much easier. I would not every consider another mover. EVER. Ray.

Outstanding Service

Their entire crew was very professional from the initial planning meeting through to the move. They promised great service and they delivered. I would use them again in a heart beat!

Michael R.

Best crew ever!

Cassie, Anthony, Brandon, and Justin were absolutely amazing! They made the 2 day pack and load so easy, couldn’t have asked for a better crew. They were quick, efficient, careful, professional, thorough, and most importantly fun people to work with and talk to! They even went the extra mile to help me sort out some out of state shipping and storage details.

Casey G.

Excellent experience

Cassandra and her team was exceptional on Friday! Moved me out and into my new house. Professional and super pleasant. Couldn’t have asked for better!!

Arthur and Crew were great!

Arthur and his crew were on time, efficient, polite and very helpful. We really appreciated their help and expertise. Thanks guys!

Emily S.

Definitely a winning team!!

We were very impressed with everyone we dealt with; from the front staff Alastair, Jordyn and especially the hard working movers; AJ and James. They worked hard all day to pack the truck on a Friday and then turned around on Monday 488 miles later and unpacked it in only 3 hours. Everything was placed where I asked them and they even set up the beds and other furniture that needed to be reassembled. Very impressive!! The cost came in under their quote which was very good news! I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for long haul movers. They are trustworthy, reliable and most of all no surprises.

Karen P.

Excellent service

I am very pleased with the team from the beginning to the end. Don and Ashley were very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. The moving crews – Mike, Corey and Chris were accommodating, efficient and professional. They worked so hard to make the moving done within a day which I appreciate this so much. Definitely, they are people you can trust, highly recommended !

Scary Move Made Easy

We just moved eleven years of accumulated “stuff” out of an old, hard-to-access colonial house in Massachusetts to a ranch house in Maine. We were dreading it, but Tom, David, Matt, and Kenny made it easy. They were professional, courteous, funny, and as careful with a box of books as they were with our antique furniture. Everything made it across the border and into its new home without a scratch. Thanks again, guys!

I recently relocated from Georgia to Portland and I could not have done it without the help of the these wonderful people. From start to finish, they were nothing but professional and personable. This was my first big move and they were so patient and helpful. Ashley, Don, Cassie, Scott, and Anthony were the best! I highly recommend them for your moving needs.

Kelli B.


My move went BEYOND WELL !!!!! Danny, Collin, Oren and Dillon were beyond amazing! They are THE NICEST AND MOST HARD WORKING YOUNG MEN! They were an absolute pleasure , I cannot say enough! about them! Thank you to all for such an easy move with no hitches! The loading of the truck on Thursday for delivery on Friday was also a key element in the easy way this evolved! Thanks again to all! You have a very happy customer!

The men came on time, were very good, polite, wore the masks. We were very pleased.

Recent Cross Country Move Experience

This was a great experience. They were easy to work with, professional and snowed up when they said they would to load, and unload. Don Oldakowski and Ashely Dickinson did their parts flawlessy, and Driver Dave did just fine also, recommended without reservation.

David P.

Excellent Service by David & Kenny

David and Kenny were fantastic! They were courteous, fast, efficient and professional and went above and beyond to unload our belongings and assist us to inventory the items to be sure every box and item was accounted for. Very pleased with the team of David and Kenny!

Great service!

Allen & Coles team was friendly, accommodating, and efficient. We recently moved three rooms of furniture with short-term temporary storage. When we unexpectedly had to extend the storage for an additional week, Allen & Coles adjusted the arrangement and were able meet the new delivery schedule on very short notice. The delivery team was careful in installation of the furniture and very helpful in moving additional furniture within the house as well as removal of several older items or disposal. We wholeheartedly recommend the services of Allen & Coles.

My experience with this company was completely satisfactory. All employees worked together for a seamless & smooth day. Everyone I had contact with was knowledgeable and helpful. My furniture was treated with utmost care and placed just where I wanted it. Kendon and Zack went above and beyond with their efficient work while all the while being cheerful and helpful.

When should I schedule my move?

You should start organizing your move 6 weeks prior to your ideal move date. Try and schedule your move during the off-peak season or outside of the months from May-September. Many moving companies will accommodate last-minute moves as well, so don't think that just because you're starting your moving late in the game, it can't be accomplished.
