MONTGOMERY – Admiral Movers President Scott McNelley is a proponent of giving back to the community. That’s why he & Admiral Movers donated $8,000 to $9,000 of services to help Cloverdale Playhouse relocate & renovate its facility.
Admiral Movers donated the use of 10 employees and a truck to help the Cloverdale Playhouse moves its stock from one warehouse to another, averting an emergency. There is limited storage space at the organization’s home on Cloverdale Avenue at the site of a former church.
Emily Flowers, managing director of the Cloverdale Playhouse, said she called McNelley and told him, “ ‘Oh my gosh, I’m in so much trouble.’ ” That trouble was moving the organization’s stock from a warehouse in two weeks.
“We weren’t going to be able to get our volunteer team together to do it (move the materials),” Flowers said. The organization has just two, full-time paid employees.
“I called Admiral and asked for a huge favor of helping us move. They donated the moving team and their time.”
She praised the moving crew. “The crew was great, polite, quick, efficient. It was a pleasure to work with them. We had lunch together with the guys. They really felt like a team and it was really great.”
She said that Admiral Movers helped Cloverdale Playhouse overcome “a potentially horrible situation to happen to us. And that was a tremendous thing. They came to (our) rescue.”
The Cloverdale Playhouse, a community theater, was founded in 2009.
“I feel fortunate to be in the position I am and I feel it’s important to share my success with the community,” McNelley said. “We are part of the community and our success comes from the community. We give back to the community because it’s the right thing to do. I’m glad to help such a worthy organization. The Cloverdale Playhouse helps make Cloverdale such a unique and special place.”
We were highly pleased with the manner in which our law firm was moved to our present location. Your people did an outstanding job. Having worked with you before, I was not surprised. In fact, we expected the performance that we received. Jere L. Beasley

The following is an e-mail questionnaire sent to the officer in charge of Plans & Development for the Maxwell Air Force Base Ambulatory Health Care Center, formerly the Maxwell Air Force Base Hospital. The military is restricted in writing formal letters of recommendation, but in this case, the key players agreed to fill out a questionnaire to convey their complete satisfaction with our move. Admiral stepped up to every challenge and delay with superior solutions. Finding a mover that specialized in Hospital & Medical Equipment storage & relocation made what seemed impossible POSSIBLE! “I also want to write a letter to Admiral for your outstanding work. More specifically, the completely stellar work of Alfonso (BIG) Smith, & Mike Garth and Scott McNelley. They marshaled this move with precision resulting in finishing a full day ahead of schedule. They deserve some Major Kudos.”

This letter is to recognize the great job your people did in moving MAX into our new building. Your people were excellent and did a super job. We'll be moving into our refurbished branch office in four to six months. Admiral will be called upon again to make that move as smoothly as you did this time.

I wish to commend Laura Mastrangelo and Admiral/Mayflower Movers on a thorough and pleasant move from Montgomery, Alabama to Destin, Florida. The estimates were timely and accurate. The packaging and loading of my belongings by Gus, Jamie, and Demetri was efficient and effective. Gus, "Big", and "Lil" unloaded, unwrapped, and placed my furniture, paintings, mirrors, and even lamps quietly and professionally. They removed all the packaging and boxes and put everything exactly where I wished it to go. This team inspected each piece to make sure nothing was broken or scratched. I was pleased with all aspects of the moving process with the Admiral/Mayflower movers. Sincerely, Susie Wilson

I would like to take just a moment to tell you how much we here at Colonial Mortgage Company appreciate the recent move your company handled for us. If you would have the occasion to use us as a reference we would quickly tell you prospective customer that your entire staff treated each of our 175+ employees as if they were a friend whom they were helping move. We would tell of the pre-move planning you did to make move week(s) smooth and that you showed up on time and dealt with last moment changes as if they were not a problem for you. At Colonial we are proud to be in a family of dedicated people and we feel that Admiral connected with us, understood our complexities and made our transition as pleasant an experience as a move could be. Many thanks and we look forward to seeing you around town more and more as your reputation and success grows.

I also wanted to write to thank you for your assistance, and that of your moving crew throughout our move. You and your staff made our move much easier than it might have been.

My wife and I again thank you and the Admiral Mover’s crew for the superb move of our household goods from Prattville, Alabama to Huntsville, Alabama during April of this year 2010. Special thanks to Mark Deplanche for his expert assistance. Having made twelve cross country moves across the United States during thirty years in the Air Force your services, in comparison, were by far the best. All goods were moved out, transported and then moved in with no damage to any of the items or to either the origination or destination houses. Great job! We highly recommend Admiral Movers to anyone contemplating a relocation of household or business furnishings. Again thanks for your help in making our relocation an easier experience.

We appreciate the excellent job you and your staff did in moving the Alabama Department of Environmental Management (ADEM) laboratory complex into our new central laboratory facility.

Your personnel are obviously well-trained and conscientious, and our scientists were impressed with the overall professionalism of the moving crew.
Again, we thank you for a job well done.

If you are in the market for a moving company to handle your professional and/or personal items in a highly professional manner, I strongly recommend Admiral Movers. We have used Admiral over the past several years when moving offices, clearing offices for renovation and so on. Whenever we need large pieces moved we call Admiral. Scott insures his crews are on time and thorough in their work. Admiral has the know-how, professionally trained crews, and equipment that insure our moves are damage-free and have minimal disruption of our operations. Scott has extensive experience in the moving business and I welcome his advice and suggestions to help our office moves go smoothly. Admiral Movers comes with my highest recommendation. PAUL J.

We engaged Admiral Movers for packing and moving services from Maryland to Alabama and couldn't have been more pleased with the results. Mark Deplanche was extremely helpful throughout the process, from the initial inspection to the actual delivery. Everything (furniture, mirrors, pictures, paintings, bric-a-brac, etc.) arrived on time and intact, without damage. The price agreed to prior to the move was the amount invoiced too. I recommend Admiral Movers to anyone needing a professional mover.

I wanted to drop you a quick note to let you know how pleased my wife and I are with our move last week. Your estimate was right on line and your people were absolutely excellent. All of them represented themselves as professionals, and they handled all of our items as if they were their own. After undergoing a recent move from Greenville, MS to Montgomery, with a less then desirable experience with another company, it was certainly a pleasure to do business with you and Admiral Movers.

I have been in the United States Marine Corps for over 26 years and I can state that my latest move was the smoothest I have had and I attribute that directly to Señora Olivia Foster (334-262-6666). This young lady works at ADMIRAL MOVERS – (MONTGOMERY, AL) and she is certainly an asset to not only her company but obviously to all military members using that moving company. Señora Foster was understanding, thorough, and quite fast in responding to any and all concerns we had. She definitely made this move smooth with regards to finalizing our move dates on both ends. I just pray that I get somebody as good as her for my family’s next military move. Semper Fidelis & may GOD Continue to Bless America!

I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciated your guys getting me moved upon such short notice. I also wanted to let you know that the crew that assisted us in moving were very professional, courteous, efficient and a pleasure to be around. Although I do not anticipate having another residential move for quite some time, I will certainly know who to call when that time comes. Again, thank you and please thank the guys that helped us out on Saturday. They did a great job! J. David McClinton Jr. - McClinton & Company

Marvin K. Upon moving to a new home in Montgomery, I was looking for a company that would stand behind my move and make sure that everything would move flawlessly. Sure enough, Admiral was the group to make that happen! I have never been more impressed by the amount of concern for my belongings as well as making sure I was accommodated through the entire move.
Marvin K. December 13, 2015
This company did a FABULOUS job packing and moving 2 truck loads of household items for my family. From my first impression beginning with the timely and detailed estimate through the unloading of the last box has been absolutely top notch. They were honest, hard working and very polite. I am still unpacking boxes, but I haven't found ANY damage so far. You won't be sorry if you go with Admiral. We are retired Navy and have done a lot of moving and this has been my best experience so far. Thank you so much for making a very stressful task much less stressful!!
Nita Pratt Retired Navy Happy Customer Household Moving February 6, 2016
As a truck driver who delivered for a home owner, in Montgomery AL, this crew was Fantastic! They were very professional, and Friendly! They took all the trash off my truck that the previous crew left on it! I'd give them 100 stars if I could. They were also very careful, and quick. 🙂

Bobby McAlpine “Admiral Movers has moved me more times than I can remember. They are practically on speed dial as I continually assemble and strike the sets of my house and many clients’ houses. They are a trusted part of the stable of talent and strength it takes to do this work and live this life of design. No project, impossible deadline or demand has ever been too much for the Admiral folks. Since 1989 Admiral has been my go to mover.
Bobby McAlpine Founder & Architect Lake Martin Houses to Atlanta High Rise September 17, 2016
I remember calling you in September or so of 2008 about my husband and my unusual moving challenge: moving the contents of the two houses, we had been living in for more than thirty cumulative years into our new home in February of this year. Mr. Foster Roberts came to talk with me and immediately put my mind at ease. He explained the process by which your company would pack our belongings –from the functional to the valuable ones – and would stage the move.Every assurance Mr. Roberts gave us was fulfilled. The packers were absolutely professional and experienced. Their presence was unobtrusive; yet they were quick and eager to help with move-related tasks. They also labeled all of the boxes so well that at the new house, unpacking was efficient and easy. On move days, your agents were prompt, cheerful, courteous, and patient! They had already worked out a moving plan, coding both the new rooms and the furnishings to be placed in them. Once rugs were down, they arranged our furniture to our satisfaction. Whether being asked to rearrange furniture, reposition a rug, or remove empty packing boxes, these professionals made our move as nearly stress-free as a move can be. Because of their expertise, care, and commitment to our satisfaction, we were able to host a party for 250 people five weeks after our move. If we ever require a move, you can count on us calling on you again. Thank you for your excellent service. We are fortunate to have you in Montgomery. Sincerely, Laurie Jean Weil, D.V.M.

I had Admiral Movers help me move my furniture (and many boxes) from storage to my home. They were extremely professional, very careful with all items (treating every piece like a Picasso), and flexible (patient) with all last minute furniture switches. I would highly recommend them to anyone, and will definitely use them again in the future!

Just used Admiral Movers to move out if my home. They were great! Bud York has been extremely nice and has gone out of his way to make everything smooth. The guys they sent to move were super and so polite. They even helped haul my antique chandelier to Stonehenge to be worked on because it would not fit in my car. Requesting the same group for my move into new house in 2 weeks! Love them and strongly recommend them!

Joe Whatley Montgomery AL May 13, 2017
The three quotes that I received from various movers were pretty much in the same price range. However, Mark's kind and professional attitude as he carefully checked everything I needed to be moved swayed me to choose his firm. The packers (two of whom ended up being the movers, also) were so careful with my goods. I am not finished unpacking yet, but everything that I have unpacked up to this point was perfectly safe and unbroken. It is easy to see the care they took with each item, especially the ones I indicated were special to me! When they came to get my goods, they protected the house in the same way, being especially careful with some of my larger pieces, so as not to scratch the walls, etc. Finally, when they arrived in Florida with my goods, they were so wonderful about protecting my new home. They placed every item where I needed it to be, and each box in the correct room for me. The men were courteous, friendly, and professional. I wish I could have tipped them more! I have a physical disability and could not help them in any way while they were working. In fact, they insisted that I just sit and point! They have some fantastic people working for them!
Denise Gentry Very Satisfied Customer Alabama, Florida May 16, 2017
I have never been more impressed with movers than I am with these folks. Great people in the office and just as good of a staff that shows up to help you start a new beginning. These guys were prompt, prepared and ready to roll. They wrapped up glass and pictures with cloth protection and made sure they carefully reassembled my bed and placed everything in the right spot and the new location.

Scott and his entire team were very flexible and accommodating with our recent move. It was an office move, so I had to schedule the move in a way which would allow us to conduct business as normal, yet get the move completed ASAP. I wanted the move done during regular workdays to allow our office staff to be involved with the move. Scott worked with my schedule and his crew was very understanding with every request made by my-self and the office staff.

I had the pleasure of working with Admiral Movers when I was called to task to coordinate a move for a Commercial Real Estate Brokerage. Appx 15 individual offices, conference rooms and lobby. Records, computers, printers, artwork and furniture all had to be moved in one day. The move was flawless. Scott McNelley and his staff were so well-organized and professional, they made the move a breeze. I would recommend Admiral to anyone... Residential or commercial. As smoothly as the commercial move went- I bet they could move a residential home in the blink of an eye...

To whom it may concern: The purpose of this letter is to serve as a letter of reference for Admiral Movers of Montgomery. Jackson Hospital has been engaged in a major construction/renovation project over the last four years. Upon final completion of our project, we will have invested over $80 million and added 375,000 square feet to our physical plant. The phasing and timing of our moves were critical to the overall success of our project in terms of meeting the construction budget. Admiral Movers was instrumental in helping us achieve our goals. As one might imagine, the hospital environment is extremely sensitive, requiring extra care to be taken in every manner. I found Admiral to be extremely flexible, timely, and supportive in their efforts. The staff was very professional, always accomplishing the task at hand in a meticulous manner. The support and expertise Admiral brought to the project was an irreplaceable asset. Jeff Jennings Vice President Don Ball Administrator

Olivia: I just wanted to take a moment and tell you how much I appreciated all your help with the move. Based on the experience I had with her movers from Dallas to Montgomery- I expected a nightmare. Beginning with my initial call & ya’ll coming out and assessing her household goods- then the guys coming out and loading her things. Then when it arrived on the other end, ya’ll were very accommodating even with the change in delivery destination mid-stream – ya’ll never skipped a beat or gave any indication it presented a problem. It was excellent customer service beginning to end – including moving her car too. Ye’ll made everything so easy rather than the anticipated horrible experience. Getting a refund check instead of getting a demand to pay in cash (including an unexpected additional $1500) before unloading was a delightful surprise. The delivery date was dead-on too. Everyone was nice, courteous and professional in addition to handling her things like they were moving their mama. Thank you. Cheryl Azar

I wanted to share my experience from a move in February of 2018. First of all I had no idea what I was doing when I received my first quote and not realizing that each company in Alabama must follow the guidelines, I reached out to Admiral and was connected to Mark to estimate my move. he not only educated me on the process, he made helpful suggestions to save money on the move. My estimate actually was higher than the actual freight cost which was an additional bonus!! Not only was I completely impressed with Mark's help, but the packer/movers (Mike, Perry and Jamal) were so considerate of my belongings and I felt they went above and beyond in how they handled my requests and helping me feel like I had been truly cared for. Moving an entire household 100 miles, not a single item as broken or damaged and I have way too much stuff, most of it breakable! Thank you Admiral Movers Montgomery and your terrific team! You will always be my moving choice!!
