Exceptional moving company

It was very easy dealing with Matt from francis movers. He gave me a quote over the phone and explained everything as well as answered any question that I might have had.
The movers were on time and did not disappoint. They were courteous and fast. The whole operation went smoothly and I was very happy.
Highly recommended

Best Service!!

I moved in Oct. 2019 and was so impressed with the entire process that I recommended my friends to them and all used Francis Movers with the same outcome of wonderful service. They were reliable...no hidden costs...nothing broke...& no one was in a hurry. I will continue to recommend and if I moved again would obviously use them.

Fantastic Move!

Taking a moment to thank these amazing movers.
It has been several years since I’ve used your services and could not have been more thrilled by your teams timeliness, friendly demeanour and adeptness for dealing with a few unexpected challenges.
More moves on the horizon for family and friends. You are the ONLY mover I will be referring them to and the ONLY one I will be using for my future moves.

Moving experience was smooth & stressfree

I spoke with the owner over the phone and he was so knowledgeable and straightforward that I felt comfortable right of the bat.

Moving day I had two friendly, hardworking gentlemen who had been working together for over 20 years. I would recommend Francis movers they delivered my belongings in excellent condition and their prices were reasonable.

Wonderful move experience

Hired Francis Movers to do my move after they did my sister in laws move and I heard rave reviews.

I was not disappointed. I believe I had Mike, Jules (Julian?) and someone who's name I didn't catch.

They showed up on time, and were no nonsense movers. They wrapped everything to keep it safe. They even brought some hanger boxes that we could use (saving us $$$ instead of buying those ourselves). The only thing I wish I had known was that you need to ask for mattress bags when booking, or else there won't be any.

They worked HARD for the entire day. I couldn't be more impressed. If you are moving, call Francis and ask for this bunch of guys.

Excellent and easy move

This is the fourth time I've used Francis.twice for a home move and twice for business office. He is a nice guy and always easy to deal with. The movers worked hard all day and got the job done without incident.I thought it would be a difficult move because we moved in to a three floor townhouse with a tight stairway, but they were skilled and experienced enough to figure out any maneuver. If I ever need to move again, this will be the first call I make.

BEWARE !!! RIP OFF !!!!

HUGE RIP OFF !!!!

Initially misrepresented billing and when I told him about it, Matthew threatened to "dump all my stuff out of the truck" and continued to scream at me until I had to hang up. Once we got past that, he provided a total for the move up to and including delivery. Tricked me into sending two e-transfer because of a delay with the original payment. Then Matthew padded the bill, of which I had proof, and only reimbursed part of the double payment. Then proceeded to argue with me and make excuses when I asked for the balance of my money. BEWARE !!!!!!

Antonella was not over charged. she was quoted 2 men at the rate of $80/hour with a minimum charge of 3 hours work plus 2 hours traveling time (1 hour to the job site out of town and 1 hour back to our warehouse after we complete)
Our men confirmed the price with her and she refused to pay traveling time and I told her we would rather not do the job for her but she insisted if we didn't complete the job she would try to damage our reputation.
The men worked hard for her 8.5 hours and she was only willing to pay for 7 hours. Our goal as a company having in operation for 35 years, has always been to exceed customer expectations. We will always work hard to ensure every job is completed to the highest possible standard and with complete transparency.

* a disassembling and reassembling service for you're items (desks, doors, beds, shelves, mirrors etc.)
* All moving equipment and materials supplied (pads, dollies, hand trucks, clear wrap etc.)
all combine to make your move as painless as possible.

And up to 50,000 dollars of insurance (subject to some conditions) will ease your mind during the transition.

* Two or three packers, as required
* All needed materials. Includes all
