Ottawa’s Most Trusted Moving Company: Customer Care Meets Unparalleled Experience

June, 2023

Like dandelions popping out of your Summer grass, every day a new moving company sprouts out of nowhere. Because all it takes is a truck, basic materials, and a few people willing to strap heavy stuff to their bodies, right? 


After 75 years in business, we’ve heard some crazy moving stories and bad practices that range from funny to downright tragic. Such as the cowboy movers that packed up an entire estate’s belongings and drove to a destination unknown leaving the homeowners with nothing and no answers. The amateurs who watch appliances roll down flights of stairs like a child staring at a Slinky for the first time. The high-flyers who instead of using stairs, throw boxes marked out of windows, some are caught, others are not.

The moving business has become a wild west, whereas in the 50’s through to the 90’s there were only a dozen or so companies. Now, there are hundreds, yet only a few should be trusted with your possessions.
