A lot of moving companies, local and long distance, will use different types of moving terminology throughout their paperwork.
We moved to our new facility in March and haven't been able to tell you all about it. Our new warehouse is 23,000 square feet of clean and green space. We have high end energy efficient lighting and environmentally friendly heating sources to reduce our carbon footprint. We also have 3 loading dock doors, a floor you could eat off of and 100 brand new moving crates for your household goods storage.

As a professional moving company in Toronto, we hold ourselves to high standards.

If you are moving from Toronto to Montreal you may want to watch out for this day!
