We went crazy looking up different moving companies/reading reviews/getting crazy quotes (high and low). This was a stressful move for us because we were planning a long distance move to a different province. We were just about to give up when Jesse from Good Ol' Boys came to our house to give us an in home estimate for our move. Jesse was professional and very friendly, and expressed how much he valued us as potential clients. He took the time needed to answer all of our questions and concerns and was always reassuring us that our move would be no problem for them. He was able to give us a very competitive flat rate quote based on everything that we had. The price was for one team and one truck to do all the work for us, and the price never changed.
We gave a refundable deposit up front to secure the date of our move.
Moving day came and it went like clockwork. A bunch of really nice guys showed up and started to load all of our stuff. Everything as tagged and numbered. All items that were not wrapped were wrapped in blankets. All large furniture items that could be taken apart were taken apart and wrapped. Our mattresses were all placed in mattress bags. They were all very friendly and professional and kept good spirits by chatting with us, and cracking jokes here and there to make the stressful time a little easier. Once the truck was loaded, they left for the 15 hour drive.
There were only two guys that made the trip in the truck and they were to get local guys on the other end to help out. The only problem was that they were only able to get one extra guy to help unload on the Sunday morning. So there were only 3 guys unloading our truck, and the driver was doing the best he could while being in a lot of pain. They were still in good spirits and unwrapped everything for us, and placed them were they were supposed to go. They also reassembled all the furniture items that were taken apart. You could tell with the small workforce that they were getting exhausted quickly. We had drinks and snacks for them and made sure that they took breaks, but they just wanted to get the work done. The job took a little longer, and towards the end they just started piling boxes in the garage instead of placing them elsewhere. One item had small damage to it which they brought to our attention right away.
Overall the guys were FANTASTIC, and we were very pleased with the work that they did. We would hire them again, as well as recommend them to anyone else.
The only thing we were not happy with was the lack of help at the other end. Even one more person would have made it much smoother. However as far as moves could go? We were very happy with the service that we received!!
