The 6 best movers of Montreal in 2019

Choosing a reliable mover is crucial to avoid your moving experience turning into a nightmare. There are hundreds of moving companies in Montreal and one can find thousands of stories about wronged clients. We have compiled the following list to help you make a well-informed choice.

On the hundreds of reviews we have analyzed, the most common complaints are by far uncompensated damage, the movers’ inefficiency, followed by inappropriate attitude of the employees, hidden costs and delays. Beware of an attractive hourly rate, which could in the long run be expensive by way of overbilling and repairs.

How to avoid being scammed?

Word-of-mouth may be a good start but often the service quality will vary throughout the company. Many websites suggest calling a few companies and verifying their reliability by asking a list of questions. The catch may be that unscrupulous movers may give you the answers you wish to hear.

On other websites, some companies are being cited but without mentioning the selection process involved. This is often disguised advertising. Some websites will have you fill out a form to get quotes from many companies but whose partners are chosen in an arbitrary fashion.

The 10 best movers in the Greater Montreal area

As far as we are concerned, there is only one clear way to make a decision: base your decision on client feedback provided on the Internet. The higher the average rating of a company, the better you may be confident that it will treat its clients well.

A company may, of course, cheat by asking relatives to leave false accounts, but an unscrupulous company will not be able to avoid getting bad reviews and maintain a high ranking at the same time.

So here is a list of the top movers of Montreal. Many of them are real gems that won’t show up in rapid search results, because they may be listed under their more or less commendable competitors.

Happy shopping!
