What Clients say About Us

James

We moved a piano with Hercules office movers from an old apartment in Ottawa last week. The piano was precious for our family and movers had treated it as responsibly as we expected. Thank you for careful work and attention to details.

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!

Dimitry K

Great moving experience with the best Scarborough movers I have ever met in Toronto. Arrived with a team of 3 guys and moved a 4500sq2 house within 8 hours. Amazing service!

Karolis S.

I couldn't have been happier with my move. It went way better than I expected. Everything was perfect from time of "my guys" arrival till everything was totally finished and cleaned up - beds and dining room table put together. All I can add is, if you're moving, call Hercules - the best Victoria movers. Thank you to all of you for a wonderful move!

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.

RaisingtheRoof

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.

David

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.
