In February 2019, we heard of Bailey and Baileys closing their doors in Edmonton. They were looking to sell all their assets. That was a good opportunity for us to grow. They were also an agent for North American van line so consequently, all their equipment such as moving trailers had the decals already installed. We jumped on the opportunity immediately. We moved also in their warehouse. It is double the size that we add and with a larger yard. In the end, we kept their key employees, server, computer and office equipment, forklift and warehouse equipment and we purchased 3 moving van trailers from that company. We also bought another 5 tons truck and leased one other large trailer. We are now proud owners of all this nice equipment and growing now our business with great and experienced employees! What a great summer start for us!

Most people are looking for the cheapest movers but in the end this could be your most expensive move! Cheapest movers means:

  • Older trucks (that could eventually give up during your move)
  • Very low wages for employees that cause unhappy workers not performing well and always have to find new movers (inexperienced)
  • No or very minimal equipment such as dollies, straps, ramp, blankets, floor protection and tools. Having minimal equipment extend move time and damages
  • No receipt or take cash only. If you are moving for job purposes, you want to get a receipt for tax deduction.
  • Have hidden fees once they are loaded with your belongings. Some moving company are shady and does not care about stealing money from their clients. Once they have your shipment or once you sign the bill, they will gladly add hidden fees such as stairs fee, big items fee, etc.

This is the most common things about cheap movers. So don’t be fool by their rates and do your homework. You have to look for their reputation or complaints online. Mid range price movers often offer the best value. We are now one of the best reputation movers Edmonton and we are still mid range price! Take advantage of it!

Consumer Beware List: Ontario Ministry of Government & Consumer Services

ALERT Mover Brand Hijackings: Brand hijackings are on the rise. Rogue movers are putting reputable moving company brand names in their online listings and ads. Always verify a mover’s stated affiliations before you hire them. Read CAM’s press release Canadian Association of Movers Warns Public about Brand Hijackings (PDF 24Jan2017). Some examples follow.

Two Men and a Truck in the Kitchener/Waterloo area as advertised on Kijiji is not TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®.

Two Men Trucks Moving Company – Toronto, ON (note: this is not TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®). Please see the attached PDF.

 

The following companies have implied a relationship with the Canadian Association of Movers, either by displaying the CAM/ACD logo on their websites or by suggesting that they are CAM members. These companies are NOT CAM members and we recommend that you carefully check their claims.

Edmonton Movers get busier!

With the summer season at our doors, we start receiving more calls and bookings. Click here to get a quote. But be careful who you hire! Edmonton movers get busier! Read about this story from the Canadian Association of Movers.

– “I thought I’d hired a reputable brand-name company for my move but that’s not who arrived on moving day.” That’s what consumers have been telling the Canadian Association of Movers (CAM) recently when they call to complain about their terrible moving experiences. In the last several months, CAM has received many complaints from consumers and credible movers about rogue businesses representing themselves as reputable moving companies to the buying public. Consumers are being led to believe they’ve hired a professional brand name moving company but another company shows up on moving day, when the consumer has no choice but to proceed with the transaction. The experience usually ends up with the consumer’s goods being held hostage for more money, delivery delays, and losses or damage to treasured possessions.

Professional Movers

This criminal element representing themselves as reputable, professional movers is increasing at an alarming rate and the rogue businesses have found some innovative ways to scam unwary consumers lately:

• They are using brand names of reputable moving companies in their search engine advertising to mislead consumers — this is called brand hijacking.

• They are operating under names that are very similar to well-known brand names of reputable moving companies. Canada’s long standing van lines have been especially victimized by the rogue businesses. These traditional van lines have built their reputations through years of delivering quality services to customers. These brand names signify trustworthy services at fair market value: Allied Van Lines Canada • Atlas Van Lines (Canada) Ltd. • Great Canadian Van Lines Ltd. • Mayflower Canada • North American Van Lines Canada • United Van Lines (Canada) Ltd. “The Atlas name has been hijacked numerous times in the past year by rogue companies,” said Atlas Van Lines President, Barry Schellenberg. “They are using our brand name and those of our competitors to get business. As an industry, we are very concerned about the number of people who are being scammed. Consumers need to be extra diligent as a good percentage of movers listed on a search engine are rogue companies.” Consumers can take four simple steps to help protect themselves from these unscrupulous companies.

1. Check out a prospective mover’s reputation with CAM. As Canada’s association for the moving industry, CAM promotes quality services by reputable movers who have established themselves as credible, reliable companies who adhere to CAM’s strict code of ethics.

2. Verify any logos, identifiers or affiliations being used by the mover to ‘sell’ their moving services. If they promote themselves using the brand of a trustworthy organization, consumers should verify it with that organization.

3. Avoid online quotes or bookings with movers who do not show a business address or contact information other than a phone number. The quotes often come from one company operating under multiple names. Rarely are they legitimate movers with trained workers and professional equipment.

4. Contact the local Better Business Bureau, for references. Movers can take some steps to protect themselves and their brands from these fraud artists too.

  • A mover should periodically search for their company name on search engines. If they find linkages to companies other than their own, they should report the fraudulent activity to the search engine’s Trademark Violation division.
  • Movers should also display any legitimate identifiers they are entitled to use — in their correspondence, website, sales tools — to separate themselves from the rogue element. Sales staff should be trained to encourage their customers to validate their affiliations, as well as those of their competitors.
  • They should also contact their legal representatives to ensure their brands are registered and adequate protections are in place in the event of fraudulent use. About Canadian Association of Movers (CAM) Consumers can contact CAM for assistance in finding an ethical moving and storage company that will provide professional moving and storage services — a mover that subscribes to CAM’s code of ethics, meets CAM’s business standards and commits to mediation in the unlikely event of a dispute.

5 out of 5 stars

posted 1 month ago

I booked Canadian Moving Services Inc for my relocation (Edmonton to Calgary). Firstly, I found their price to be extremely competitive in the entire market, they were the cheapest by far.

After this, I was blown away by the service Eric V and Jimmy provided. They both took lots of care of my belongings and worked extremely hard. They helped me pack up all my belongings, moved everything themselves and even set up all my furniture at my new place in Calgary. They worked so hard, it got to a point where I told both of them to take a 5 minute break and have a few drinks.

For the price I paid, this level of service and dedication was one of the best I’ve seen. I am thoroughly impressed with this company, especially the professionalism of Eric and Jimmy. This was the first time I’ve booked a moving company, and if I ever do book again, Canadian moving services inc will be my first choice hands down.

Thanks a lot Eric and Jimmy!!
