IT WAS A FABULOUSLY LUCKY DAY THAT STALLION'S BUSINESS CARD WAS IN OUR MAILBOX
Selling our home after 20 years was definitely a learning experience. Moving out of province was even more so. Our familiarity with moving companies was Nil.
As good consumers we made a point of asking several companies to outline their services, the options available that might meet our needs, and to give us a quotation for each of the options.
Brad impressed us the moment he came in the door. He was more than patient when we explained what we felt were our challenges. He clearly explained Stallion's services, and their association with Atlas Van Lines. Reputation was most important, and we were reassured to learn of their excellent reputation.
We knew what furniture we wanted to move, but we had yet to downsize our other possessions. Brad's walk through was extremely thorough, determining what would be included, and the number of boxes required, etc. He was the only person to open the kitchen cabinet doors. We had a LOT of items in those cabinets that would have to be packed.
It was explained that it would take a few days to review our requirements before giving us a quote. Knowing of the attention to detail was most reassuring. Our quote was in line with other quotes we received, but there was no question regarding which quote we would accept. Price was important, but our confidence in our mover was critical.
The packing and moving, as expected, was an experience. We had a LOT of things to pack. Everyone was exceptionally courteous and went out of their way to accommodate themselves to our last minute additions, and to our large dog who was in residence.
We are now in Ontario looking for a new home, while our containers are in storage. The possession date will be a factor in any purchase. A phone call to Brad answered all our questions regarding a potential delay in the delivery of our belongings, and we were thrilled to learn how easily our possible needs could be accommodated.
Our relocation has been much more complicated than we anticipated. Each new challenge confirms that we did at least one thing right. We could not have made a better choice in our movers.
We are confident that we will be equally pleased when our containers arrive to a new home. We anticipate that when our belongings are in place we will look back and appreciate that the actual move was the easiest part of a major relocation, thanks to Brad, Karla, and Stallion Moving and Storage.
