Bad business, Do Not Hire

Look you guys Carefree Moving came out to move me
I left a picture at the bottom of this review, I had and paid for, 752 cubic ft ,but they came out and said we only had 500 cubic ft, which was the first problem
Second problem I had to pay 1000.00 over the price they gave me third problem even though we agreed to pay the over head, they were soooo disrespectful they ended up driving off, And the forth problem is the truck was sooo full
Our stuff would not fit on that truck and that why I took a pic, proof you guys, this moving company does not treat you right is not professional, remember this Company guys

Second time using Carefree Moving

We used Carefree Moving for the second time and they were outstanding once again. They are the best local movers in the GTA. They respond quickly to emails, provide detailed pricing and quotes and have efficient crews that work fast and efficiently to complete the job. The crew movers and the office staff made moving day less stressful by providing timely and open communication. They were friendly, hardworking and took excellent care of our belongings. They are a great choice and I cannot recommend them highly enough. They should be your first choice when moving in the GTA Area, both locally and long distance.

Nightmare- Dont hire them

My expensive 2 sitter recliner is not working. I don't know how they treat my sofa.
They showed up late.
When they reach at the destination they will ask you to pay first otherwise they are not going to off load the truck. And they will charge you money according to them.

I sent them email of moving list. They knew about my stuff but purposely they sent small truck, then after hour and fifteen minutes they sent large truck. also charge me for that hour plus additional cost for the new truck. Also they start forcing me to hire 3rd mover that I declined. So they said you have too much stuff that's why it will take more time. They took 10 hours to move 2 bedroom apartment to a small house.

I requested them to plastic wrap everything. Few things they wrapped and half just took without wrapping. They even didn’t bother to tell workers that what and how customer needs their service.

Yesterday was my worst day. I m not recommended to do business with them .

Moving

We moved two bedroom unit but we had a lot of items to move, also there was difficulty to access the new place therefore longer distance to lifts than expected. They were extremely helpful, friendly, accurate and perfectly on time. They were very experienced and packed and delivered efficiently. We also had internal very narrow stairs and guys delivered everything down the stairs really well. Great service! Will use it next time 100%! Thank you so much!

Moving

We are so very pleased and happy with the entire move. Your gentlemen were so happy and willing, they knew what they were doing and they were very professional. I would definitely recommend Carefree Movers to anyone.
I can’t believe how caring they were with all the stuff, and making sure nothing were be damaged (and nothing was).

Disaster of an experience

The short version of it is that we are very disappointed to say the least and will not recommend anyone to use this service.

The arrived at 9:20 instead of 9:00 am and on their invoice they wrote 9:15
They too six 15 minute breaks
They charged us for 3 movers, but the guy that was the boss, was either managing the other 2, was taking more cigarette breaks, on cell phone talking or texting - so we felt that we overpaid for 2 people
They had told us $35 per appliance but they charged us $45 for each appliance that were on the main floor but over the phone when we were hiring them, he had said that if they not upstairs or in the basement, there would be no charge. When we told them this fact, they said but there were 3 steps in front of the house. Of course in Canada with harsh weather all houses have to be a bit above the street level so snow and water don't come inside. So again, we felt they took advantage of us. 2 of the appliance (washing machine and the dish washer were so light, not even 50 Lbs but they still charged us for them as if they were over weight.
they charged us an extra $45 for each long cabinet/dresser because they could not use their dolly they explained. But when I was interviewing on the phone to hire this company, I asked they if there were any extra costs, fees or charges, they didn't tell me about this extra cost.
they mostly shrink wrapped the furniture that we told them were important and expensive. They hardly used their blankets to cover our furniture.
Many parts of our furniture were damaged because they were not careful handling them and the next morning we noticed that the broken wood splinters and chips were still hanging on the freshly damaged furniture.
Over all, they worked carelessly, were slow, and we were charged for may hidden fees that they did not tell us about up front. At they end we paid a high price for a very low quality service.

Moving

We were a bit worried about moving (haven’t moved in 15 years), but they made our relocation seamless and hassle free! They were in contact with us before pick up and drop off of our belongings. Very professional and this was one of the best experience we ever had.

Damaged Furniture - Blamed the Customer

Save yourself time and money by NOT using this moving company. I had two large men show up to my home who moved bins one at a time - two men for every one bin carried! They claimed the boxes were packed too heavily but as a 30 year old female weighing 120 pounds I was quite capable of moving the bins myself. SLOW SERVICE is an under statement carrying items one at a time in stead of taking a handful. At one point I also got the feeling one of the guys was trying to take my TV that he thought was broken/unusable. Not only were they slow, unprofessional, and did not take off their shoes or placed runners to avoid getting dirt everywhere (it was raining that day so you could only imagine the mess left) but they REFUSE to accept responsibility for a couch that was damaged during the move. They are claiming I caused the damage although I was able to provide proof in the form of a picture of the couch taken a month prior in excellent condition. They were informed of the damage the same day to which it took them two weeks of back and forth communications for them to come out eventually and say that I (the customer) am falsifying the damage. To date they also have not sent an invoice for the service provided however they were quick to charge my credit card the same day of service. This company does not understand the value of the customer nor their property. This company also does not seem to care that moving can be a frustrating as it is, and then to add to that an unprofessional team of employees that could care less about your belongings or home. I also enjoyed (sarcasm) watching one of the movers drag a metal picture across a glass top table. Towards the end (and almost at my wits ends) I put on my shoes and started taking my belongings out of their truck MYSELF to speed things along. I REPEAT, save your MONEY, TIME, AND PATIENCE and choose a company that cares! Also don't expect this company to accept responsibility for their movers causing extensive damage to your furniture.

Dining set move

I hired Carefree to deliver a solid cherry dining set to my buyer in Oakville. The gents showed up 30mins early and kindly asked if they could start, which was perfect with me. They were quick and professional, protecting the items nicely in the truck. I paid them and gave them a tip, which they seemed to appreciate. The buyer emailed me shortly after they arrived with her dining set to share with me that I selected a great moving company and everything arrived in great condition and was moved into her dining room quickly and carefully.

Carefree is coming to my house again tomorrow to help me with my house move. I have a lot more comfort that it will be the same great experience! I will share that experience as well.
