Move across the country

I have used AMJ Campbell now for 15 years to move me across the country and back and all of my loves in between. I have never had an issue until the most recent move which across the country. Back in 2017, I moved my family across the country and all of our belongings went into an AMJ Campbell storage facility for 2 years while we waited construction of our new home. When my belongings (furniture, kitchen foods, etc) arrived at the AMJ storage facility, I received a phone call confirming that everything had arrived and was in storage and facilitated monthly storage fee payment. While the AMJ rep had me on the phone, she so cleverly sold me maximum insurance on my items in storage and promised that if any damage happened to my items, AMJ would replace the items at current market value. Fast forward 2 years and nearly $6,000 in after tax money on just insurance storage fees (that doesn’t include storage fees) my belongings come
out of storage and while thankfully most items were in great condition, there were a few broken items and furniture pieces that had missing parts and not able to be reassembled, since they had been disassembled upon my move out of my residence two years ago. On actual move on day, I also had some last minute surprises of needing to pay an additional $550 in un-crating charges. I paid for this crating and un-crating of all my marble slabs and delicate artwork and heavy mirrors upon my move out and was never told that I would have to pay for un-crating charges at my destination because my items were going into storage for some time, which they were aware of that from the beginning. So a few pieces were damaged, one of which was a set of lamps. These bedside glass lamps were packed poorly by AMJ packers and of course shattered. So I made my claim for these two lamps and when the replacement value came back, I questioned why it was so low and the claim rep advised me that I never put a claim through for the shades. Can someone please explain to me how a lamp is purposeful without the shade. She claims that because I didn’t list the lamp shade on my claim form, they aren’t responsible for replacing it!!! This is absurd. Furthermore, she only came up with that excuse bc when she went to the website of where I got the lamps from, 5 years ago, she saw that they sell the lamp base and lamp shade separately. That is clearly for no other reason than marketing tactics and making more money. Of course when you go and buy a lamp, you have to buy both pieces. That’s a given. Furthermore, because my lamp shades were packed in the same box as the lamp shade and therefore contained the same AMJ moving sticker, that automatically qualifies them as one item! I was not asked to be put into this position? I was unfortunately Put into this position as AMJ carelessly packed my expensive glass lamps. Another item on my claim was for a very large dented lamp shade. I was told that because AMJ didn’t package it properly in a box my insurance doesn’t cover it ! So essentially, it becomes my fault that AMJ didn’t do their job correctly on move out day while I was trying to sort out my family (3 little kids in tow) to move them across the country, I get penalized. I am left to believe the AMJ has been extremely dishonest and unfair in their delivery of their side of the deal after taking my $6,000 in after tax dollars on insurance fees. I was reassured that having this insurance in place would ease the process should anything go wrong. I even pre paid to have the un-packers unpack everything to ensure that if anything was broken, it would be covered! This has not been the case at all! I am an honest and good citizen. I paid my part in ensuring my items were covered and now AMJ is looking for every possible angle to essentially get out of pulling through on their end of the deal...replacing all of my claimed items reported within the 60 day grace period. I have a table that got cracked and it comes with a marble slab on top. I am awaiting for in house inspection of that item and am very worried for the outcome. I also had a rowing machine that was taken apart by the movers on move out day. On move in day, no one wanted to re-assemble it. I put it on the claim as there were missing parts as well and AMJ came back saying I didn’t sign any contract or pay any additional fee to have my items disassembled and reassembled. So why did they so freely take its part in the first place without my consent? Why did they take part all of my beds and many furniture pieces and put them together without any consent. In all of my moves with AMJ Campbell, I have never once been asked to purchase a disassembly and assembly package. All of my furniture has always been taken apart to easily put it in their Tetris organized trucks and then re- assembled upon delivery. As you can see, AMJ has been nothing but a nuisance and Quite frankly has taken my $6,000 after tax dollars and doing everything possible to get out of their end of the deal. You can bet my life, I will never in a million years be giving them another dollar of mine for any of my personal or corporate moves, going forward. I have done all the right things to protect myself, which included laying a ton of money. Their insurance representative doesn’t even care. She has no interest in assisting me and gIves me the same run around response each time we speak. She is useless and Doesn’t have any customer service manners.
I have been under immense stress over this and the whole reason I accepted the insurance coverage was to avoid this stress.

Fantastic service!

Darren, Derek and Logan were our movers. Fantastic young men. Fast, efficient, careful and friendly. Absolutely no damage. They were excellent at placing and moving the furniture if we changed our mind.
I would hire them again without thinking twice.

Residential move from Ontario to BC

From the Relocation Consultant, to the packer, to the team who packed up our home and transported it to BC, the experience was wholly positive. They were all very professional, friendly, courteous and considerate of our belongings. Everything was wrapped carefully and arrived in good shape - absolutely no breakages!! The transportation took a little longer than I had hoped as we were the first load on the truck and had to wait for some other pick-ups before they made their way out west. I would very definitely recommend them to anyone.

Long Distance Relocation Move (700km)

I would not hesitate to recommend AMJ Campbell - I would give them a 9.5 rating. An extremely professional and knowledgeable organization - starting with the receptionist who quickly respondedto my initial email to everyone else I spoke with.

I truly appreciated the thoroughness of CB who came to my home and went through everything - room by room - closet by closet. I found his estimateto be acceptable and was beyond pleased to finf that he had overestimated the weight - a very pleasant surprise.

AMJ also arranged to have a wooden crate built for a piece of valuable art - shocked to find that they use the same company for this as the ROM and AGO.

The movers were extremely efficient and had a three bedroom home packed up before I could blink an eye.

The only reason for my 9.5 rating is one item that was damagedin transit. However, upon CB’s recommendation - I did purchase the insurance. My claim was processed in lightning speed.

I would not hesitate to recommend AMJ for a local or long-distance move.

Atlas Van Lines Moving Company

This was the second time we had employed Atlas Van Lines in two years because we had just moved to another Ottawa house. It was a rough start because their truck broke down enroute to our house before the move. They acquired a rental and got on with the job about 30 minutes later than scheduled.

The crew only stopped for one morning break and one afternoon break in the six hours they worked loading and unloading our furniture and boxes. A number of 5 cu/ft packing boxes has been supplied by AMJ Campbell prior to the move. They wrapped our chairs and sofas prior to loading with cellophane and brought covers for our mattresses and box springs.

We would highly recommend Syd, Tony and Arnold for your next move.

AMJ Campbell ( Markham)

100 % recommend AMJ Campbell( Markham location on 176 Hillmount Road) - I have moved a lot in the USA and when I looked for a mover locally in North York , AMJ Campbell came highly recommended by a realtor. Hands down one of the best moves ever . The Markham team is amazing starting with Dennis, a senior moving consultant. Dennis met with me and very efficiently and professionally determined the needs and set up the move ,quote ,logistics and everything from start to finish went exactly as meticulously mapped out by Dennis and the entire AMJ Campbell Markham team. Notably , Dennis is an excellent communicator, listener and his follow up and follow though is excellent. His unwavering commitment to excellence in product delivery and quality is everything one could hope for in customer service. On move day the team of Paul, Thomas and Akim arrived on time, I think even early, ready to efficiently and carefully get the move underway. A quick walk through was all that was needed and this move team flawlessly executed all needs with excellence and incredible attention to quality, both in work and in protection of home moving from, to delivery, to home moving into to. This was a hugely positive experience from my introduction to Dennis, to the box pick up at AJM Campbell Markham facility to the move itself and the team of Paul, Akim and Thomas that executed move. No need to search for any moving company, AMJ Campbell Markham will take care of all your moving and storage needs.

Not the cheapest but good movers

Overall, I was pretty satisfied with AMJ Campbell. The moving crew was great and worked very hard to get the job done. They needed an extra truck which they were able to have on site very quickly. There was a discrepancy between the initial quote and the actual cost but I was able to work out a reasonable resolution with the company. I felt they were fair about it and seemed genuinely interested in making sure I was satisfied. The moving crew was awesome! I would use them again.
