Amazing experience

Sunday, April 13, 2014

I had already moved from Toronto to Montreal when I got a new job in Calgary. The first time I hired 2 small men, they were good, not great, and I didn't feel the urge to hire them again. A friend recommended Centennial, and I was very impressed by their service. The day before I moved their manager called me and made sure everything was in order; he asked questions I wouldn't have thought of, like whether I had grouped similar items together regardless of location to save space, or was transporting enough items myself to rent a smaller truck. I decided I could use some help packing, and the next day the team arrived at 7:30 with extra boxes, tape, and paper. The two movers were very friendly and professional, transporting my items with great care. There was no damage, and the team even finished 30 minutes before they had planned.

Overall the company exceeded my expectations. In terms of price, we agreed on the charges beforehand (because of my friend, I received a discount) and there were no hidden fees. Centennial isn't not the cheapest company around, but it's not the most expensive either, and worth it for the better service.

I have very little experience moving - I packed a few of my smaller items into boxes before the big day, and was smart enough to label and organize them by room, but on the big day there was still lots to be done. Fortunately the guys at Atlantic Coast had extra boxes and moving supplies, including packing tape, and while it might have cost us extra for them to help us pack it would have cost more for us to cancel our appointment, and they were completely understanding. They told us this happens all the time, and we had a great time chatting with them. It took all day, but we successfully moved a poorly packed four-bedroom house from Dartmouth to Halifax in ten hours - well done!

On the phone, Atlantic Coast impressed me with their prices and professionalism. In real life, I wondered why they had so much equipment with them - until the footrest in our old recliner (which my husband and I tried moving) fell off, and the bottoms fell out of two of the kitchen boxes, and we kept finding important items we had forgotten to back. In the end I realized – professionals always think ahead! They charged exactly what they promised, too!

True professionals. They moved my family from Halifax to Ottawa. Very pleasant team, nice over the phone, detailed estimates. I'll book them again next time.
