What Clients say About Us

This is a very heavy old piano. Came out of a house in Oakville and was delivered to my house in Toronto. These guys did a great job, went above and beyond to make sure there was no damage to the piano or either of the houses. I was not looking forward to this day, however hiring these professionals made this a great experience! I live in a townhouse with an awkward entrance and tight hallways and these guys ensured they didn't damage anything!From what I saw today, I will definitely recommend these experts to move anything and everything for anyone.A+++++

You guys were totally amzing, I had hired two other piano movers prior and both companies had difficulties moving the piano. But your crew had no difficulties. They were very carful, fast clean and so nice to talk too. I did post pictures on Face Book and people wanted your number from me. I will highly recommend you GREAT JOB.Thank You

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.

Hercules Piano Moving has picked up my piano which I had donated. They were very professional, covering and sealing the piano. Making note not to damage my flooring and returning all furnishings back into their original places. I would recommend this company, reliable, quick and efficient.

Esther Katz

The Barrie movers arrived on time and impressed me with their friendly and polite demeanour. They completed the move professionally, taking care to pack and protect each of the items to be moved. I was very pleased with the job that was done. I would heartily recommend them for everyone in Ontario.

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.

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 can’t say enough good things about my experience with Edmonton movers. Igor from Hercules answered all my questions and provided a quote that was the best of the five other moving companies I called. The movers arrived promptly and working quickly but with considerable care and had everything packed up much quicker than expected. We were simply blown away by the professional demonstrated by both movers. Very satisfied customer.

I want to express my sincere gratitude for the organization of the relocation of our office in Ottawa. Hercules office movers were very polite, neat and responsible. Packing, loading and unloading were logically adjusted, so I could relax and completely trust the process. Special thanks for the ease of communication: I was nervous, and there were problems with the concierge and the use of freight elevators, but these guys saved my day and behaved tactfully as real professionals. I can recommend this company to anyone who cares about quality of office relocation.

Chose because of availability and prices which were lower than other quotes received. These piano movers Vancouver arrived on time and were quick, friendly and handled the piano with care. Would definitely recommend.

These guys did a great job. They are the best Barrie movers in Ontario. Very professional, quick and also careful. They clearly knew what they were doing as I imagine moving a grand piano isn't the same as moving a couch.


This company was very professional. There was a minor delay, they fixed that very satisfactorily which in my opinion is the best sign of a professional, reliable company. The delivery went smoothly, guys were polite, efficient, professional and on time. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend and use these gentlemen again.

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.

The team came in and did a great job moving our grand piano from the second floor to the main level. It took a while for the team to assess how to do it but when they brought in the cavalry to help out it was quite impressive to see them get the job done. I would definitely recommend this happy bunch!

The Hercules moving team provided solid service. The quote process was timely and seamless, which was appreciated. On the day of the move, the team showed up on time and did a great job. They were professional but approachable too.
