Moving Services

“We just wanted to send a note of thanks to you and your movers for making my Mom’s move from her home smooth and well coordinated. Serge and his team were clearly experienced with these moves, which came in handy as the Promenade front desk staff did not know how to access the service elevator (Serge ended up trouble shooting the situation as he was familiar with the elevator). The movers were very efficient and professional. Serge also took the time to remain responsive to our requests, willing to wait for us to round up remote controls to make sure my Mom’s tv was in working order.

We will be sure to recommend your services to others who may need this type of moving assistance.

Sincerely, Lynne and Bob”

“When my father died suddenly of a heart attack, we knew that my step-mother would not be able to stay on her own at their acreage in Kanata. They had a large home, stuffed with decades of possessions and memories. None of the children live in the Ottawa area, which added to the challenge of relocating my step-mother and getting the house ready to sell. Fortunately, one of my step-mother’s friends recommended that we contact Judy Robinson at Senior Moves.

Judy was an immense help to us. The movers she arranged to relocate my step-mother were prompt and courteous. Judy brought in her team to go through everything left in the house, helping us decide what to donate, sell, recycle and discard. Her team cleaned the house from top to bottom and staged the house for sale. She arranged a painter to do some touch up painting and a landscaper to fix up the yard and gardens. When the acreage finally sold several months later, she brought her team back to finish cleaning out the house. She even took care of selling my father’s grand piano for us.

The services provided by Judy and her team were outstanding, and at a very reasonable price. I would highly recommend Senior Moves to anyone requiring similar services.”

“Good afternoon Serge, ..
I called Lynn this morning and asked for help to clear out  our space yesterday and she said that you were a sweetheart.  When we called back to pay our invoice … she also said that you were a real asset to their company, you were lovely, warm, smart and a gem ….
WOW we already knew that, but nice to hear from clients …
So once again, thank you very much for the wonderful way you represent Senior Moves.”

Expert Presentations

“Thank you both for a most informative and entertaining evening last night.  For some of us while the prospect of downsizing may still be in the future, you made us all think.  We need to start the planning now.  It is never too soon to take control  and better to do it while we are able. There was much conversation after you left about personal circumstances and needless to say your sharing of personal and business relationships hit a chord with of us. ‘ Again many thanks for sharing, Gerri Schultz: Chair; Ottawa West-Nepean Seniors Liberal Club


“Thank you Judy and Doug, for taking the time to come and speak to our group about such an important and relevant topic.

A friend of mine has occasionally worked with you at Senior Moves, and has spoken to me often of your dedication and the incredible work that you do.

I’m going to quote something she said to me:

“The staff at Senior Moves is extremely hardworking and professional, but their strength is in the personal and compassionate treatment of the person they are moving.

The client’s comfort is of utmost importance.  This is not just a move.  So much effort is put into ensuring that when the client steps into his or her new setting, which is often just one room, it already feels like home, with furniture and personal belongings arranged in an attractive and comforting way.”

Senior Moves has a truly personal approach to helping their clients to adapt to a new environment.

Again, thank you for your presentation to our group, but also for the wonderful work that you do.”
