Moving

Joe the Mover has an excellent team with Victor, Brian, and Mike. They were professional, knowledgeable, efficient, friendly, and worked very well as a team.

Thanks Victor, Brian, and Mike for moving my personal belongings safely.

Moved house contents

Awesome company - they were the best priced. They quoted me for 2 people and 1 truck but sent 3 people and 1 truck because they said it would go faster; they didn't charge me anything for this.
El Cheapo quoted me after asking for detailed number of furniture etc. When I called them to discuss, they said it would need to be 4 people and two trucks instead of 2 people and 1 truck along with raising the hourly rate an extra $80 beyond that quoted.
Brian, Joe and Victor were friendly and professional - no damage and very helpful!!

Another smooth experience with Joe The Mover

I just wanted to leave some positive feedback on my experience with your company last Wednesday (July 6th).

The team of Victor, Dougie and Brian was exceptional and we really appreciated their professionalism and friendliness. We had to pack up all the contents of our home for an upcoming renovation. I'll definitely be requesting the same team 8-10 months from now when we need to move back in.

This is the 4th time in the last 12 years that we've used Joe the Mover and we've never been disappointed. Keep up the great work guys! And thanks again.

Professional and punctual - these guys are reliable

I have hired Joe the Mover for 3 moves over the past 5 years. They were recommended by a friend and I have stuck with them since then. Each time they gave me an accurate quote with no surprises, they showed up on time and they got the job done in good time with no breakage. The crew has been a different one each time and they look a little scruffy but are always polite and professional. A friend of mine went with a company that advertised cheaper prices and ended up being seriously ripped off - her possessions were held hostage until she agreed to pay more, in cash. Joe the Mover will never pull pranks like that - they are professional and legit and their prices are reasonable.

Markham house to Scarborough house move April 2015

Moving crew were on time. Worked on Saturday morning and done by noon. Took very good care of our furniture and stuff. We were really satisfied with the service and even helped me cut my trees, a chore which I had to do. A hard working bunch. I highly recommend them

Business Move

This is the worst company ever. They showed up late, smelling like God only knows what. They were extremely rude to me and my staff. Had the nerve to yell at my assistant and damaged not only my personal property but the new space we moved into.

They do not wear booties and did I mention the damage that was never compensated for? The movers are a joke, took apart my desks and then couldn't figure out how to reconstruct them but the icing on the cake was the disclaimer they insisted I sign saying that everything was fine and there was no damage. When I refused they refused to leave. And their boss (the bully that I spoke to after the fact) was less then helpful. Not even apologetic. I would never recommend this company and if I could attach pictures of the damage I would. Worst company ever and the kicker was they didn't even finish the job. Left half of my office in the building. I called two men and a truck the next day and all was good.

Joe the mover, you should vet the people you hire, ensure they are not drinking and smoking while working and when a customer is unsatisfied at the very least apologize.

Moving 60 km.

We have used this company many times for family members and friends. In the past we found them to have good rates and good crews. My daughter did the arranging herself (not experienced) and the advice she got in booking the move was ridiculous and an upsell. They.They really let her down. She had a small amount of things and she was advised to get 3 men at $150/hour. Really????!!!!!!! The move took a long time (not the mover's fault), but it was the kind of move that should have been done with 2 men and started in the afternoon. Joe the mover should be ashamed of themselves charging that kind of money. Disappointed. Unprofessional. The lesson here is even if you have a good mover. You have to inform yourself. The whole industry has a bad reputation for a good reason. This is a good company. I may still recommend them, but proceed with caution. Rates can be increased from one call to the next. Be sure of your start time so you are not wasting time. Rates can double depending on the time of year and time of month.

Residential move

Over the past six years, various members of my family have employed Joe the Mover five times, most recently last week for an inter city move and again yesterday for a local move. The movers were efficient, prompt, highly professional, and extremely pleasant. The price was very reasonable. I would not hesitate to recommend Joe the Mover.

Movers - move

Joe the Mover came very highly recommended to me and I will recommend them to others. They came in good time; were fast, efficient, friendly and reasonably priced. They moved me out of town without any hassle. The team was very careful with all my objects including a piano.

Moving

I had Joe The Mover move a few items uptown - the lady on the phone was very professional and quote was bang on. The two movers showed up on time and were very friendly. We were all done in a couple hours - for a very reasonable price.
