Those guys are super professional, fast, efficient, and very friendly. They were extremely careful with moving my stuff and took only 5 hours to complete the job for a three bedroom house. They carefully wrapped everything that looked delicate and did not come close to breaking or even scratching anything.

I only had them load my 15′ U-Haul truck.

Movers showed up on time. They were friendly, professional, quick, and efficient. They packed the truck making excellent use of the space in the cargo bay, and also ensured that items supported each other and would not move during the trip. I heard no strange bangs or noises from the cargo bay during my 5 hour drive. No surprises with the charges either.

Deduct one star only because it took several callbacks to actually BOOK the movers, but the moving team was excellent.
– Tim C.

A very dependable local company to take care of your moving needs. They service the Ottawa area as well as Eastern Ontario.

The rates are very reasonable and I found the staff to be very friendly. While I don’t have any frame of comparison to other movers in the area, from what I’ve heard through ancedotal evidence, these guys are among the better ones. No damage of furniture or appliances were found.

The guys who did our move on March 18 were fantastic. Fast, careful, courteous and found the cat that had escaped — saving my hide. I certainly would want them on my next moves if they are available. Please pass along my (and Ami’s) appreciation to them. I would be more than willing to provide Read More…
