We moved from Hamilton, ON, to a small town in BC and hired Taylor Moving. They were able to move our belongings across the country despite us hiring them at the last minute (around 7-10 days before we moved). Kingsley, the Taylor Moving sale man, came over to our house and was able to provide a very accurate estimate and was able to give us an excellent quote. He did also mention during the sales visit that he "could get us some boxes for our picture frames", which sounded great to us, but that didn't happen - so we ended up taking our most valued pictures with us in the van instead of putting them on the moving truck.
The three men who moved our belongings onto the truck were prompt, courteous and hard-working. (They actually jogged from the house to the truck while carrying three boxes apiece!) They took apart our kitchen table, our beds, our IKEA chairs, etc., and wrapped them up securely. The driver, Doug, gave us his cell phone number so we could call him with any questions about the arrival time. We really appreciated that.
Taylor Moving worked with Allied Transport for our move. So men from Taylor loaded our belongings onto an Allied Truck, Allied drove our things across the country, and a guy from a local moving company helped the Allied driver unload everything. Our belongings arrived at our home about fourteen days after they were packed up.
Despite the careful wrapping, two items were damaged during transport, and we only noticed the damage after we'd signed that we'd received everything in good condition. One was a little side table that had a chunk gouged off of the back leg. Didn't really care about that. But our head-board, which my husband made by hand, was badly damaged and will not be able to be repaired. We're really disappointed about that and find it odd that despite the rather glaring damage, no mention was made of that to us by the guys who unloaded it and put our bed frame together again.
