We needed to move an entire apartment (3 rooms, at the third floor) from North York to a detached home in Markham. Two movers showed up at the door, Rocky and his sidekick (sorry, your name escapes my memory at the moment). They arrived 15 minutes earlier than scheduled and started to get to work. There were a lot of bulky stuff to be moved, such as heavy boxes in various sizes, a chest freezer, a couple of old crt-like TVs, bed frames, mattresses and boxsprings, computer chairs, a digital piano (wood finish) and so on. We also had two bulky pieces of furniture that needed to be tossed out (a loveseat and a sofa) and they were kind enough to carry it out for us to the dumpster. We also had a couple of fragile things such as lamps that needed to be moved. All mattresses and boxsprings were covered in pads and/or wrapping. Furniture pieces, the piano and the tvs were also meticulously wrapped. It took about 3 hours to get everything into the trunk, with still room to spare!
We left the apartment expecting to trail them or lead the way, but they told us to go on ahead to the new home and meet them there. Now some (shady) moving companies will often make random stops, driving around the city to 'extend the time' meaning more cost for the consumer! Well, we arrived at the Markham home and after 10-15 minutes or so, they're already at our door! Amazing!
We color-coordinated most of our boxes so it would be easier for the movers to bring it up (which box goes which room, and so on). Rocky was nice enough to remove his shoes and bring everything upstairs since the home is carpeted.
A couple of pieces had to go to the basement. The entrance is slightly narrow making for large pieces to be a tight fit. However, the two movers had no issue - well, maybe a little - but they handled it professionally.
Everything was done ~ 5 hours. Great moving service. We tipped well! I hope that was enough for a big lunch, and a bit more, boys! :) Definitely going to recommend to family and friends. Thanks again!!!
Oh and Maria/Rocky, just a heads up that on that receipt for tax purposes. We already spoke to Rocky after the move, that he'll email it to us in a day or two. I hope you don't forget! Please send it to E P.'s email, the gmail email on file. Thanks again! Really appreciate it!
