A2B Moving and Storage, LLC. opened for business in 2009. Chris and Laurene Hood started A2B out of their home. Just like a lot of small businesses. It then grew in to having our first warehouse space, to growing in to a larger spot for more storage abilities, and to now, we are here in Auburn at 10,000 sq. ft. warehouse. Chris Hood has been in the moving industry since he was about 18 years old, and has worked for a lot of the bigger corporate companies I’m sure you are familiar with. With over 30 years in the moving industry, Chris felt like he could offer customers a professional move, and a great experience, at an affordable price. We are a family owned and operated business. 3 of their 6 children work here at A2B.
