About Us

Our History

Able Moving & Storage was established in 1987 by Bill, Jim, and Joe Singleton. Like many other moving companies, they started with one truck and ran business operations out of the basement of their family home. Bill, Jim, and Joe carefully built an excellent reputation by creating a company culture that puts the needs of each customer first. Since then, Able Moving & Storage has grown steadily into the premier moving service provider in the Washington, DC, metropolitan area.

We aim to provide the most professional, responsive, and safe relocation services possible. Having three distinct moving divisions – Residential, Commercial, and International – enables our experts to properly service moves to and from anywhere around the globe.

Why Able Stands Apart From The Rest
