My Movers Dumped Me! A Tale of Panic and Despair.

What's worse than being dumped on your wedding day?
Getting dumped on July 1st by your movers.

Its' unfortunate and it happens all the time and the story goes like this;

You (the client) being well prepared take the time to contact a moving company in March to reserve for July 1st. They give you a great price so you book your move and hang up the phone feeling great.

Skip Forward to July 1st. Your reservation was for 8:00 a.m. It's now 11:30 a.m and after multiple phone calls which go unanswered you really start to panic.

What Happened? Your movers dumped you to make room for higher paying, last minute bookings.

But you're not going to let them get you down! You're resourceful, capable, a real Go-Getter! So you pick up the phone and start calling around only to find out that literally every company is fully booked.

You finally reach a moving company that has an available truck. Great! One minor detail though; their rate is $450/hour. They have purposely left trucks available for last minute callers that are stuck in a jam. With no other options you agree to the outrageous price.

You sit on your steps with tears rolling down your cheeks, feeling angry and helpless wondering how you're going to pay for your overpriced move.

Why are we telling you this?  To protect you from a disaster of course!

If you need to move during peak moving season (April 25 to July 15th) in Montreal make sure to choose a reputable company that's more interested in maintaining a good reputation than gaining short term profits. The added cost of hiring a reputable moving company is worth the peace of mind that comes along with it.
