Just wanted to let you know that the pack your crew did was miles ahead of my previous experiences.
Iris is amazing. When I said to her that some things matter less than others she did not skip a beat and replied that all things are important simply because they are mine – love that approach to her work. I could not say enough about her! The two fellas that were with her clearly care about their job.
The guys doing the truck load were stellar. Friendly, professional and they had a ton of blankets to wrap everything. Everything was absolutely protected and arrived without a single scratch or nick. I may have just renewed faith in movers!
King’s TransferVan Lines was pleased to take part in the Age and Opportunity 55+ Housing & Active Lifestyles Expo, in Winnipeg, last week. Loreen and Jill took a trip out to the show to educate attendees on the steps involved in booking a move. The show was well attended and very busy, and they got to meet a lot really nice people. We know that movingcan be stressful, especially when downsizing is involved, and we have the experience to make any such transition as smooth as possible.

I would like to let you know what a wonderful experience it was to have King’s complete the move for my mom this past Wednesday. Velma and her crew took my mom’s furniture from a Setter St. apartment to her new suite .
Velma was very professional and knowledgeable to work with, she helped make a stressful experience easier to handle. Everyone I spoke with at King’s regarding this move provided amazing service. I really appreciated how the whole thing was handled, especially since you were able to accommodate me on such short notice.

We’ve moved! We, the folk from King’s Transfer Van Lines Winnipeg, have moved our office. Don’t worry, we haven’t moved far. We have moved locally, within Winnipeg, from 974 Powell Avenue to 1-199 Omands Creek Boulevard. The new location will allows us to serve you better both now and in the future.
Of course, moving isn’t a simple task – even for a mover. Lots of work went into the move. We’ve moved our office, out equipment as well as all of our customer’s stored goods. We are not anticipating any shutdown or even slow down from this point. We are up and running as usual, but we want to make sure you guys can find us if you need us.
Our new mailing address is:
1-199 Omands Creek Boulevard
Please update your records if you have us on file.
All of our email addresses and phone numbers will remain the same.
If you are in the area, feel free to come by and check out the new digs.
If you are moving, hire the mover that just moved a mover. We like moving stuff.
I want to thank you again for your wonderful, warm, professional service with arranging my move this year. You are so nice.
I was so impressed with Loreen’s professionalism & promptness in dealing with my concerns. (This is so unlike many other businesses one deals with these days.)
I have sent Loreen a separate note of thanks, but I want you to know, Jill, when I spoke with Loreen I told her that you were a fantastic ambassador for the company and in my note to Loreen, I said: “I want to reiterate what I said to you (I,e. to Loreen) during our conversation: Jill is a fantastic ambassador for your company: totally professional, warm, dependable and efficient.”
I hope I don’t ever have to move again (!!) but if I do – I hope you and King’s Transfer will still be doing business together because you’ll be the first one – the ONLY one, I’ll call, Jill.
Many, many thanks again for being you.
I just wanted to take a minute to send you an update on my move yesterday. Richard and he team showed up around 3:30. My mother and brother were at the original destination. Both were impressed by Richard and his team. They then made the move into her new place. Richard also made sure the extra drop off happened.
When they arrived at my place I was very impressed with all three movers. They were the friendliest guys. Very efficient, careful and very fast. I could tell they were all extremely knowledgable.
I would also like the mention Jill. I arranged the move through her. She was great to deal with, I was even impressed by the gentleman at your office who I picked up the boxes from, I am sorry I did not catch his name.
I think you have a GREAT TEAM of people working for you and I am proud that our company, Royal LePage Dynamic Real Estate is affiliated with you. I will definitely use your services again and recommend your services to the other realtors in my office.
Thank you so much,
I apologize, it’s been a few days since the unload, but of course I’ve been very busy with unpacking!
I have to say, we have been thoroughly satisfied with your company and it’s employees. We happy with your affiliates. The crew that came on July 4th in Winnipeg were very professional and considerate! Kudos to all 3 of them!! They did a great job and were very accommodating to our needs.
The same can be said about the crew here in Calgary. No one would let me move a single box!! They wanted me to tell them if I changed my mind about an item and had no problem moving things twice!
I hope that the good words get back to the right people about a job well done!
I hope I don’t move again soon…but if I did, I would want to work with someone like you again!
If you have a TV, odds are you’ve seen a newscast featuring a furniture moving horror story. They happen and they are an unfortunate black eye on an industry that is largely high in quality. In light of this, customers often ask us about these reports and how to avoid these scenarios, so we thought we’d publish a reference sheet on how to choose a mover:
Ask family & friends for recommendations – word of mouth of is always a great way to find a business.
Ask your moving consultant to perform a survey – an accurate weight estimate creates a more accurate pricing.
If you get multiple estimates be suspicious of a price well below the others.
If you receive estimates with grossly diffent weights, keep in mind that the you will most likely be charged based on actual weight of your belongings. A lower estimated weight does not necessarily mean lower cost on move day. Accuracy is key.
If you have concerns visit the mover’s place of business to see their equipment, personnel and warehouse.
Most national Van Line affiliated movers do not ask for deposits. Be suspicious of a company who wants a large deposit.
Ask how damage claims will be handled and find out who you would call to have this taken care of.
Ask that the mover to provide a committed pickup and delivery schedule.
Ask for the name and telephone number of the agent nearest your destination, so you have contact at both ends.
Ask for a confirmation letter detailing all of your specific moving arrangements and a copy of the price quotation.
If you do your homework ahead of time it will help you make sure your move goes off without a hitch. Choosing King’s Transfer Winnipeg as your long distance mover will help as well. ;)
I’ll assume you received my phone message. You have a great group working for you! The three packers that came out (Iris, Glen, and Les) were great. Very friendly and extremely efficient. It was a pleasure to have them in my home and I’m confident that our possessions were packed very well.
As for the moving crew (Parminder, Art, Steve, Les, James, Adam & Matt) they all did a great job as well. They all worked hard and efficiently. I especially think that it was great to have Les on both the packing and loading crew. He knew the house and knew where to find boxes that he needed to fit a space on the truck. Please pass on special kudos to Les as he was extra personable and offered a lot of great moving tips to me.
Now I just need you to work your magic and get that load on the highway to Alberta!!
