What Clients say About Us

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.


The crew was extremely professional and organized. they kept us up to date about the arrival time and they took such great care of the piano while transporting. We are very satisfied with the work!


I am highly impressed by the moving company Hercules! A team of 3 men brought a piano up from the basement of my house, up 9 steps, then through a tight corner and up 3 more steps. The moment they stepped in my house, I noticed their professionalism. From preparation and organization to floor/stairs protection, team work and moving techniques, it was excellent. Not a scratch! I have very high standards, I'm actually fussy and not easily impressed, but today I was delighted to see exceptional work. I highly recommend Hercules Markham movers for any moving services!


They call me before they come. They arrived on time and they do this job very professional. I am very satisfied. Thank you!


Hercules Movers were great to deal with and very professional. Ottawa movers were on time with very friendly movers who even called to update us on their departure and arrival. We had a great experience and recommend them.

Vivid Reflection

With short notice, Hercules Moving Company was able to book my piano moving during a time that worked well for me. Other companies I had looked into were not as flexible and were more expensive. They were very professional. I would definitely use Hercules Oshawa Moving Company again, and would absolutely recommend them.


Would highly recommend them! Hercules movers showed up and without any problems moved two industrial sewing machines from storage Toronto unit to my work space.


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!!!


Thank you very much, Hercules moving company for your hard work, great service and fast delivery. We greatly appreciate it and would recommend your services to anyone looking to move!


Hercules did a great job - they were prompt, worked hard and were extremely diligent. Their attention to detail was fantastic.


The team was very efficient and professional. I would high recommend them for all of your moving needs! :)


Music is my life. And this awesome Hercules guys smoothly moved my "old but gold" upright piano in an apartment on 10th floor! When I will open my studio I will doubtless hire them to move all my equipment and musical instruments. Thank You!

Stephanie Thorbahn Myles

Huge shoutout to the 4 men that moved our family this week. After working a long night before on another move these guys came and never stopped. Everything that was not in boxes they wrapped in furniture pads, plastic wrap and packing tape. They later pads all over our new hardwood floors and put all the furniture back together. Great pricing. Thank you Hercules!

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.


Hercules rescued my move when another Toronto movers cancelled on me days before the big day. They were professional and knew exactly how to protect all of my belongings during the move in terrible rain.
