Anyone can set themselves up as a moving firm. All you need is a van and an advert in a free paper. It's why there are so many cowboys. If you want to save a few bucks, go ahead and hire the two guys who turn up wearing stained white vests, driving a U-haul, and then spend their time rotating between taking smoking breaks and wrecking your furniture/house. Just don't be amazed when they suddenly want twice the original estimate. If you want professionals, who wear uniforms, have all the gear, and do exactly what they say they would, then hire Fireman Movers. They made our move pretty much stress-free. Diana in the office was very helpful with scheduling the move. Lorne, one of the owners, visited us beforehand to make sure we had the right number of movers. All charges were fully explained ahead of time and we recieved a complete estimate by e-mail. We're a busy family with 3 kids, so we also needed help with the packing. Fireman movers sent two packers who boxed up our house in a day. They couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. The move itself went just as smoothly. The team of four movers used carpet runners throughout the house, shrinkwrapped all the furniture and put blankets around any fragile items. They worked quickly and competently. Again, all were professional and courteous. The result is that not one single thing was damaged nor was there any damage to the houses we were moving into or out of.
