An assisted review is collected by a contractor on behalf of the homeowner after their work is completed. The homeowner must confirm the text of the review and may make any changes she or he deems appropriate. The homeowner then assigns the contractor a review score out of 10. Assisted reviews receive the same scrutiny as other reviews and must follow our review guidelines.
For our local move within Edmonton, we found all the packers, movers, and unpackers to be very efficient and organized. Zach and Jeff packed and moved the library; Trent, McCoy, Gail and Brian packed the house, and Brian and Ameen unpacked the library and the rest of the boxes on May 14th and 15th. Bruce Gordon was in overall charge.
All the movers did a good job; Bruce and Brian in particular. Those two are obviously very experienced and were very helpful, particularly Bruce in helping Glen to arrange the furniture, place mats underneath things, and generally making sure all went smoothly. He was also concerned to leave a comfy chair for me at the house, as I needed frequent rest breaks for my back. Brian unpacked very efficiently, and put away my crystal and china as well, which was very much appreciated.
I think unpacking and shelving the library would have gone better had the men who packed done the unpacking and shelving. Ameen was very pleasant, and obliging, and asked a lot of questions (a good thing), but it was very obvious he was new to the moving business, and the books did not all go on the proper shelves (a project for me for the winter & not a major complaint).
Overall, we were very impressed with how smoothly the move went. There were very minor damages to a door and frame at the house, one plastic paper tray was broken, and a major scratch put on an oak chest (Carol is looking after the repair), but we would certainly recommend Western Moving to anyone who asked us.
Thank you to Tatum, Janice, Ted and all the movers who made moving more bearable.
