I spoke to the owner, Alex and after speaking to many moving companies he sounded genuine. The only problem was he didnt have any reviews on Homestar, well he did only 1.
So I was left with deciding to go with someone who has good reviews but sounded rude or going with a guy who sounded really honest but have no reviews online about their service.
I bit the bullet and went with AR Moving and am SO glad I decided to risk it. Alex returned his calls promptly every single time and even suggested if I find a mover in Ajax I would be able to save some money as they probably wont charge a travel fee. But because I liked the way he gave me all the details and was always prompt in returning my calls, I decided it was worth the very small fee of $50 for travel fee. I had initially booked him for Feb 23, but had to change it due to babysitting issues to Feb 25th. Alex was great about it and said 2 movers would come at 11:30am.
Moving day he called at 9:30am to make sure if I needed any wardrobe boxes, which we didnt need as we had everything packed and ready. My biggest concern was this HEAVY armour we have. When The Brick delivered it, they guys looked like they were about to faint...and even managed to dent one of our walls. It's a heavy piece. 11:24am the two Russian guys came to our driveway and looked to see what we have and started packing the truck right away. They were very polite, friendly and strong. We had a lot of boxes so loading up the truck took a bit longer but they were very careful especially with the armour. They took it down the stairs without any dents/scratches to the walls. Took them about 2.5 hours to load up the truck, which by the way was very clean. Then they took everything to the public Storage where we are storing the furniture until our house is built, and packed it without any inch to spare but again carefully. Because I had to meet someone they even suggested they can finish storing everything in the storage and lock it up and leave with the storage office. I've been very paranoid about being scammed, so for me to actually consider leaving means they've gained my trust. Im just so happy because now I dont have to look for another mover when we move from the storage to our new house, Alex and his team will be our choice without a doubt. The experience was just SOOO pleasant.
I know with spring right around the corner, people will be moving in and out, so I hope you give them a call and see for yourself. A good, affordable, honest mover is hard to find, I'm glad I went with my gut feeling and used them. His rates are amazing as well, $50 traveling charge and $55/h with 2 movers. Total was $300 plus we tipped the 2 guys $30/each since they were REALLY pleasant, cheerful and hard working guys.
