Customer Reviews

The service supplied by the Edmonton office was excellent. Leon kept in touch prior to the booking to ensure all was still good for the scheduled move. Adam and Brant arrived on time, phoned ahead as promised, were very polite and careful with our belongings. Their fees were very reasonable and they completed the job in record time! I will continue using them for any of my junk removal or moving needs.

Adam and Gabriel were great. They were quick, capable, polite, and made our junk look like it wasn’t a problem at all. They offered good advice about disposal of a couple of things we had – – overall it was a most pleasant experience. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who has stuff they want to get rid of!!

The fact that these young men were respectful and hard working; they also had a sense of humour, to go along with their honesty! They cleared out a bunch of stuff I did not want, in a very reasonable time. Would I recommend them–YES! They are ambitious and have made plans for their future. I wish them well in their chosen professions!
