What Clients say About Us

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!

Anastasiya Mamayeva

These guys are amazing. They are fast and reliable. They are reasonably priced compared to other big companies. They moved 3br appt on a very short notice with no extra charge. All my furniture arrived in the same condition as before the move. I would definitely recommend them!

I hired Hercules for unloading one over sized pallets from trailer. The crews are professional, know what they're doing. They're nice to working with, definitely will hire them again!

Wow. Hercules exceeded my expectations. Moved from a 2 bedroom condo to 3 bedroom town house this past week (July 7 2017). The 3 young men were on time, polite and respectful of all my belongings. I was nervous about this move as I had never hired a moving company before, usually moved with friends and family. And with the negative press about movers I wasn't sure how well it was going to go. It went better than I expected for less money too! Would recommend this company without reservation.

Good job. Guys were very pleasant and fast. Everything was clear, no hidden fees. They met all my request.

If you still in doubt of what piano movers in Toronto to choose - hope you read my review :) Hercules Movers did an excellent job of relocating a grand piano from a music school to my house and additionally advised me a professional piano tuner. Extra care service, friendly and skilled movers, which were extremely accurate and protected the piano as well as floors, walls and stairs.

Kavaleo Bram

We had never used movers before and did a lot of research before deciding on Hercules Moving Company. The Calgary movers showed up early and were ready to go on time. They worked quickly and diligently and moved our entire house in 6 hours. I was very grateful for not having to do the heavy lifting ourselves and that everything was moved without damage and in good time. I would definitely use them again!

Thank you so much for the professional and efficient work. I was surprised to see how much work went into protecting the vanity from damage. The 2 man team made the job so easy, maneuvering with ease up the curved staircase and around the tight corner into the washroom. Your professionalism, efficiency and care was much appreciated.

I was very worried when I knew I had to move my piano and I did some research online to see how can I get it done and I found Hercules Moving Company and I decided to give them a try. I was astonished how quickly and easy they did that without leaving a single mark on it. I was pleased and surely will call again!!!

I recently had a packing and moving with Hercules! Excellent customer service, polite and everything on time! Michael and his team did a wonderful job and I am very glad I planned my move with this company! Highly recommend!

Kannan Sau.

All four movers were excellent, courteous and very professional. These Surrey movers took good care of our furniture, Piano and other things during the move. we were very pleased and will always use them & recommend them for any moving projects.

Our piano was recently moved for the first time after having been in our house for 30 years. I was very impressed with the movers' professionalism, their friendliness and for being patient in their handling of the piano and its delivery to Mississauga. They took their time to use extra padding on this big instrument and also used extra floor covering so as not to scratch the hardwood flooring.I would highly recommend them to anyone and everyone!

Discipleof Christ

The Hercules moving crew did an amazing, fantastic job in moving my mother's upright piano. The two brothers crew are incredibly strong, expedient, courteous, and professional. The company gave the best quote, the fastest appointment booking, and was the most polite when compared to all the other piano moving companies I called in Toronto and the GTA. I absolutely recommend this company for anyone who needs to have their piano and/or heavy objects moved.

The crew that came to move us were amazing! From their first step in the door they had to I mats down. =M Every thing was wrapped with care for all the corners and the feet. Their care of my baby grand was excellent. Both my husband and I would highly recommend them!

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.
