Poor Service

We wouldn’t use him again. The cost was double the majority of other quotes, and we still had many damaged items. We based our decision to hire him on the many good reviews we read, but have since learned that fake positive reviews are a big problem in the moving industry, and many ratings sites allow businesses to pay to have negative reviews removed, so, it would seem, you really can’t rely on positive reviews when hiring a mover.

Without Prejudice:
I would like to bring to the attention of the public and potential clients that Julia Dennis from Simcoe , Ontario has been posting Defamatory, Offensive, Fake Reviews about our company and me personally since April 2020 and is actively continuing with this campaign. She has used multiple aliases to propagate her unwarranted slander. She has posted on 6 different review sites under the following alias :

Ella J. from New York
Ellen
Jade
Jade Edmunston
Julia from Toronto

Our two time repeat client Julia Dennis from Simcoe , Ontario has been the author behind the numerous defamatory reviews but chooses to use Fake names!
Ms Dennis actually gave us a 10 out of 10 review in 2015 on the site “HomeStars” when we first moved her. And we provided the exact same quality services this time in 2020.
As the owner I’m on every job personally so company and personal integrity is VERY important to us. We all take slander SERIOUSLY.
We have put together a substantial file on Julia Dennis including all email and text correspondence as well as both move quotes and final bills from 2015/2020.
Screen shots of all my personal conversations with Julia Dennis in April 2020 clearly show she was happy with our service and specifically stated two separate times she “Did Not” want to rescale her shipment and was totally fine with the price.
Ms. Dennis chose not to reweigh her goods for a SECOND time. Her estimate was for almost $5000 but was actually charged $1600. Not sure how I charged her double !?
On her Estimate was a “shuttle service” of $300 but she was only charged a “long carry” of $150. This “Long Carry” service applies to any distances further than 75 feet from residence to truck.
The distance from her basement apartment to my truck was 110 feet. We actually saved her money by trying to get my big rig close enough to her complex and avoid shuttling with a smaller truck. This type of charge is clearly outlined in our
“Term and Conditions” area of the Website and on the Bill of Lading.

Every one reading this should wonder why Julia Dennis has 4 different alias and chooses to slander us via review sites as opposed to calling/emailing us directly. If anyone is guilty of “bullying” it’s obviously her. To post outright lies about people and attempt to ruin their reputation affecting their livelihood is text book bullying!!

In one of the fake reviews posted by her alias “Jade Edmundson” she states we damaged everything and didn’t blanket wrap furniture. Weird , all she shipped were boxes! We make an itemized list of all items shipped , her list shows no furniture just boxes.
And to confirm , her Bill of Lading had full replacement value coverage signed by her so any damages would be fully covered.
We never offer $0.60 basic coverage.
Lie after Lie!

At just to reiterate...
Ms. Dennis has not ever contacted us directly to express any issues with our services or damaged items.
If we were so terrible she should definitely have supporting photos of damaged items and documents showing an attempted claims process.
NOTHING

We have not ever wronged this person, only showed compassion for and individual who is clearly suffering from instability and had to move in with her parents for support.
Ms. Dennis has not even once contacted myself to express any negative issues at all.
Nor did her parents whom we moved twice in 2019 across the country. . Nor have the other 100 clients we have moved since April 2020.

Julia Dennis’ assault on our company and me personally is way out of line!
I encourage potential clients to read through all the review sites and see for yourself the timeline and extent
Ms. Dennis has gone too. Keep in mind two other sites have removed her Fake reviews due to false information, slander and inconsistency.

Mine , Dana’s and our employees livelihoods solely rely on our reputations/integrity so quality is always important to us.
If you’re looking for Honest reviews go to sites like “Google Reviews “, “BBB” and “HomeStars”. As a company I can Not pay to alter or have reviews removed.

Regards
Adam Breton

Very Professional!!

I made a move from Mississauga, Ontario to Victoria in July 2020 during this crazy time of the Pandemic. I have never had such professional treatment with other Mover's. I have moved a lot!! Everything arrived in perfect shape and the timing was fantastic. I did not have to wait weeks to get my things.
Dana in the office is lovely and very helpful.
When I move back home I will definitely use Breton Movers again.
I highly recommend this company.

Amazing Job!

From the first contact with Dana in the office thru the entire move, this company was simply amazing to deal with. Our move was from Calgary to Halifax in the middle of a pandemic and the logistics were challenging to say the least. We had Adam move both our vehicle and our belongings so we were concerned cost wise but the estimate was almost bang on with no surprises! Adam and Mike were on time and took care of every detail at both ends of the move. These guys are true professionals who care about what they do and how they do it. Can’t say enough good about this group...they helped us out at a very difficult time and took all the worry out of a cross country move!

Excellent in every regard

We moved several items and more than we initially anticipated, from Victoria to 3 different locations in the Toronto area. Everyone involved in the move was excellent. Clearly well organized. Polite. Professional. It was a very difficult time for the family and we appreciate working with this company. Thank you Adam and Dana

Great Company

I am seldom a review writer but my stellar experience with A. Breton can not go unrecognized. After my mother passed away I had to empty her house and get the chosen, "most sentimental" items home from Victoria to Toronto. Dana was so helpful, kind, patient and accommodating that I feel privileged to have met her and I will be forever grateful. I had a very small window of opportunity to arrange everything, and at considerable inconvenience to herself, Dana "made it happen." All of my items were securely and safely packed, and because I was anxious that my Mom's sewing machine cabinet might get damaged in transit, it was padded and then wrapped in a specially formed box; not because it was necessary, but as a kindness for my complete piece of mind. Adam and Mike arrived in Toronto on schedule and their professionalism was second to none. From Adam's impressive rig to the careful way everything was unloaded and handled, I have no doubt that from the time I last saw my "precious cargo" in Victoria until the time it arrived, it was treated exactly the same way I would have treated it myself. It is not usual, anymore, to get this high level of customer service. It was without a doubt, a cut above. From start to finish, it was a happy, even heart-warming experience; which was wholly unexpected considering the bittersweet nature of the items being relocated.
Dana and Adam, many many thanks for everything, including your very competitive pricing. I am genuinely grateful for it all.

Cross country move

Adam and Mike were very professional and helpful. They had a great system for keeping track of everything and worked diligently to handle every item with care. They were especially helpful and patient with my situation (coming from across the border with another truck) and even sent us off with additional blankets and wratchet straps. I would highly recommend their services for a cross country move. I can’t imagine anyone better for the job. Thank you!

Pleased beyond words

I recently moved from Sault Ste. Marie, On to Calgary, Alberta. Before I contacted A. Breton, I had checked with other movers. One mover could not even guarantee a truck for the day I wanted it. Adam and his work partner, Mike, arrived on time the day I needed them. They were both nicely dressed and complete gentlemen. They rolled out the red carpet in my apartment and proceeded to, carefully, wrap my furniture, tagging each piece to match their inventory list. All my furniture and boxed belongings arrived safely and intact in Calgary. They were also gracious enough to transport a large buffet(by dolly) down the street to another
location for me. Throughout the entire moving experience I was in contact with Dana, Adam's wife, by email, who answered my questions
and confirmed all the details. I would highly recommend A. Breton
Relocations especially if moving across the country. Not only are they
more reasonably priced than other movers, they take pride in what they
do and treat your belongings as if they were their own. Well done Adam and Mike!

Great Move from BC to ONTARIO

A great move from Chase, BC to Sturgeon Falls, ON. Adam arrived on time, everything was carefully wrapped and loaded. Delivered to our new home on time, absolutely in perfect shape, nothing was damaged a very successful move. His wife Dana was really great to speak with over the phone. We would refer them to anyone looking for someone who cares about your belongings. Thank you very much !! M & J
