What Clients say About Us

Excellent service! All individuals I dealt with went above and beyond, including rearranging their schedule to accommodate the move. The team moving were so quick, clean and extremely careful to ensure no damage occurred to anything. Would recommend Hercules Moving in a heartbeat.


Hercules was great to work with. They arrived on time, had a team of very competent and friendly guys who treated our possessions with respect, including our piano. They were quick in disassembling and wrapping our furniture and seemed to have a lot of experience with Ikea stuff (which we have a lot of). They worked hard and kept us within the budget. I highly recommend them.

I had to move my entire food operation in a day. Hercules quoted me quickly and showed up on site 2 days later ready to move. I was worried about all my expensive and sensitive machinery but they pulled it off safely and without issue. Very reasonably priced and highly recommended. Great Oakville movers!

I was very happy with Hercules and the way they handled my piano move. After a mixup with the original moving company I hired to move a piano just before Christmas, I contacted Hercules. They were able to schedule me The following Tuesday. Unfortunately the Tuesday became Wednesday, due to an illness with one of the movers. George contacted me on Monday to let me know, rather than Tuesday morning, which I appreciated. The movers arrived within the timeframe I was given and moved the piano both efficiently and professionally. I definitely recommend them they are the best Burlington movers in Simcoe County.

The movers showed up on time and ready to work, they were very efficient and professional. Would highly recommend to anyone.

My heavy piano was transported within a few hours, taking into account the time for descending it from the second floor and lifting it to the fifth floor using the freight elevator. The price at first seemed to be a bit high, but after calling other piano moving companies in Ottawa, I’ve realized that it was no more expensive than others, even a bit cheaper.

I hired this company about month ago to move me into new house. 3 athletic looking guys arrived on-time and did a very good job. Whatever I did not finish packing -they did it for me. Then loaded all my staff into big truck and moved into new house. They were working nonstop. Everything was done very accurately within promised time. Very responsible and polite guys. If happens to move again I certainly will hire them again and of course will recommend this company to my friends. Greater job guys. Thanks a lot.

3 guys picked up an upright piano from one location and brought it to another. It arrived wrapped very well and they laid down runners so they didn't scratch or mess up my wood floors. They were very careful and put it where I asked without a problem. They were polite and accommodating. I would hire them again and refer them for sure. Igor was easy to deal with and returned my calls and gave me a quote all within a timely fashion.

Nancy Powell

Hercules assisted me in moving antique furniture. Igor who arranged the move for me was prompt in returning calls and updating me on timing for pickup and delivery. The drivers both in picking up and delivering were punctual despite bad weather conditions. The employees were very courteous and helpful. All furniture was carefully wrapped and reassembled on delivery. I would not hesitate to recommend Hercules to anyone for a complete move or for speciality moving.

I work at Habitat for Humanity Halton-Mississauga. We select low income families for Home Ownership . We recently contacted Hercules Moving Company to assist us in moving our newest family into their new home. Hercules moved the family at a time which was convenient to them. The family called me almost immediately to rave about what amazing service they received, as well as the kind, professional staff which were sent. I will definitely be calling upon their services in the future!Thanks again for your awesome work!

They were prompt, efficient, and professional. They were skilled at moving the piano (6"1 grand). They set it up carefully such that minimum force is needed to move it. They made the move look effortless!

Donald Quan

I used Hercules for a non-piano move for the first time from their Storage Toronto. I expected only the best service from them as I’ve experienced how they treat Concert pianos and they delivered 100%. The time and cost they quoted was exactly what it took. They really know how to quote their services. No surprises....so rare in a moving company. They came over-prepared with blankets, stair coverings, wrappings, mega tape. They were not about to let anything happen to my valuable stuff. Best movers I’ve ever used.....they almost take moving to an art form.

My daughter moved to Ottawa and I sent her one bedroom stuff to Ottawa. It was so easy working with them. I was communicating with Mr. Lukas until the end. There were no changes on the estimate that they gave. Everything went as he promised. The movers were on time to pickup and they dropped off as promised. Two guys came and did a wonderful job. No much talk but very friendly and have good manners. They covered all the necessary items with blankets and moved very carefully. My daughter was very impressed about their work. Excellent job for a reasonable price. Thanks Lukas and other guys who did the moving.

Very professional movers. They did a fantastic job helping us move into our home. Thank you very much for the terrific customer service. Highly recommend and will use them again.

I have used the services of Hercules Moving Company multiple times, both for personal relocation and office moving of a large company. Ottawa office movers are professionals in their field, they are neat, clean and do their job well! If you have any questions related to the office move or moving in general, I recommend always contacting this company.
