Ottawa Moving Company – Testimonials for TMM

Hi Mike,

Many thanks. I think your crew is great, and I’m very glad to have met you and know your company. You have been very decent to me, which is more than I can say of a few people during this fiasco. I greatly admire people who behave like professionals. You and Susie should be proud of the business you’ve built. I am deeply grateful.
Best wishes,

Cathy – Ottawa

Hi Mike,

We will recommend your company to others including our real-estatereps.
The guys were careful and professional and cheerful!

Doris and Grant – Manotick

Hi Mike,

The move went very well. Wade and the crew in Ottawa did an excellent job loading which in terms of damage is the critical part of the move, and his crew in Victoria (actually from the mainland) were equally professional. We obviously haven’t unpacked our boxes yet, but all furniture arrived without a scratch or ding.

Thanks for guiding us through the process,

Bruce and Jamie
Ottawa to Victoria BC

Hi Mike,

Wade and his crew (Terry and Mark) did a great job Wednesday – they were very easy to work with and really knew what they were doing. Also, from what I hear, Kevin and his boys were equally to the task and did a great job at Dad’s end. Working with you was a pleasure during a very stressful life event.

Hi Nick,

Thanks so much for helping us out. Total Move Management has been a bright light in what has otherwise been a terrible few days. Our sincere thanks again.

Dominic and Robyn

(Dominic and Robyn originally hired another moving company but they didn’t show up on moving day, that’s why they had a couple terrible days.)

Hi Mike,

Thanks very much for making the delivery (To Toronto) on the weekend.  My daughter was very, very happy!


Dear Susie and Mike,

The Kemptville District Hospital Auxiliary’s “Hey Day” was a big success again this year. As a result, we’ll be well able to meet our obligations to provide financial support to the hospital for patient care an medical equipment.

It was a such joy to see your smiling faces at the end of an arduous week. Your total crew was so great to work with and made the clean-up process much easier. We appreciate your understanding that it was difficult to advise you on the total scope of the job beforehand.

It is only through the strong support of organizations like yours and the generosity of the community that we are so successful in this important fundraising activity.

We would like to thank you all of you very much for your generosity

Hi Mike,

Just wanted to let you know that the move yesterday went very well. Robert and his partner Colby were both great-hard working, polite and just really easy to deal with. All in all it was probably the best moving experience I have ever had (I’ve had alot!!!). Anyway, thanks again and please thank Robert and Colby again for me.

Kim Enberg, Kemptville area

Thanks for the extra effort on this project. It was greatly appreciated.

Hope to work together again soon.

Hi Mike,

Wanted to Thank-you for another great job !! Thanks so much!

Happy Day!!

Chrissy – Canadian Diabetes Kemptville Office

Dear Mike,

I liked the calm direction you gave everyone involved in the move, but the outstanding feature for me was the genuine consideration and kindness in the atmosphere — this made a huge difference! I felt composed and never in danger of tears and upset.

Jane M. – Downsizing to a Seniors Residence Ottawa

Hi Mike,

Just to let you know that Rick and his crew (Garret and Alex) did a great job moving my furniture and boxes into my new apartment this morning! They were cheerful and friendly (as usual) and paid attention to the small details to make the process easy for me. They carried my stuff up three floors, in the heat, without complaint; they set up the bedrooms; and they cleaned up before leaving.

Thanks for all your great help over the past three years! I have moved with you five times during that period and had great experiences each time. All the best to you, Susie, and everyone at TMM in the future.

Best regards,

Adele Eyman, Ottawa to Waterloo Ont.

Mike, thank you so much for all your help! I’m astonished at your speed, and am very grateful!

Judy Rutledge, Ottawa to Toronto

Mike, Susie and Matt,

I wouldn’t be telling the truth if I didn’t say I woke up in a wee bit of panic on moving day with the snowfall and storm we were experiencing which got progressively worse as the day went on.

Upon arriving at the office shortly after 9 a.m. the truck had been loaded halfway already. Mike, Susie and Matt working together like a well oiled machine, but taking time to enjoy a morning coffee with us and of course some photographs for our scrapbook.

Susie and Mike your community mindedness goes above and beyond words and we truly appreciate your commitment to our organization with your support of not just one move but two moves in ONE YEAR! Your friendly manner and sense of humour made the move such an enjoyable event. So many people asked us how the move went, I always respond it went great and we had a good time doing it. Some of us look to moving as a bad thing, but it gives us an opportunity to renew and grow. Thank you for being such an important part of our day and success in making our move seamless complete with your smiles always intact.

All our very best wishes – The gang at Beth Donovan Hospice

Dawn C.L. Rodger, Executive Director, Beth Donovan Hospice

Hi Daniel,

Anne and Brian Gable, Political Cartoonist for the Globe & Mail – Ottawa to Toronto, ON

Hi Mike

Ruth and I would like to thank you for moving us from Oakville to Ottawa. It was the first “long distance” move for both of us and it could not have gone any better. Brian was excellent in the way he managed the entire move at both ends. As I unpacked all the china, I was particularly impressed with the way he wrapped and packed all our dishes. There was no way any piece was going to break. Please pass along to him our sincere thanks for a job very well done. We greatly appreciated his work and the level of professionalism that he brings to his job.

It doesn’t happen often, but when the opportunity arises, we will not hesitate in recommending you to other people. Have a great day and again many thanks for making this go so smoothly.

Layne Magee – Oakville to Ottawa, ON

Super service ! Very helpfull and very friendly & organized ! Fast & I can’t say enough good stuff- Thanks!

Hi Mike

Thank you so much for the delivery of my couch. It’s good to finally have it. When we move back home to New Zealand in a couple years we will be sure to use you again.

Kind regards.

Delia Leogreen – Re: Moved an antique couch from Victoria BC to Kemptville ON


Thanks for everything you did for us. The truck showed up at 1030 (hrs) on the 11th (date) and we were done with everything by 1700 (hrs). Gerry and the boys did an awesome job.

Mike and his crew came by to pick up my possessions for a cross country move and I couldn’t have been more impressed. Professional, friendly and efficient, they were right on time and finished quickly. I would unreservedly recommend Total Move Management to anyone.

Mike, you made a stressful time a whole lot easier!

Oliver Pulleyblank – Counsel, Department of Justice Canada


Thanks for much for all your help with the move from Ottawa to Boston Massachusetts. We appreciated your professionalism, reliability, punctuality and good humour with this cross-border move.

Mike, just to let you know that the three men involved in our move , Brian, Robert and Dan, were absolutely first class. On a sweltering hot day, they worked continuously, were at all times courteous and never lost their sense of humour. I will have no hesitation in recommending your company, if asked. Thank you for a great job.

Desmond McKinley – Greenbush to Brockville


What a great experience I have had dealing with Total Move Management!!!! Your team was on time, didn’t waste any time, never damaged anything, and completed the job to my total satisfaction. The guys were polite, helpful, and a pleasure to work with! If you ever need a referral, let me know.

Many thanks

Hi Mike and Christine

I am in my new home in Stanstead Quebec. The 3 young men who moved me
were absolutely wonderful. So were the 2 packers. Excellent
experience!!! I would highly recommend your company.

All the best.

Reverand Lise – Brockville, Ontario to Stanstead, Quebec

Dear Mike,

Last August, you moved me and my husband from Ottawa to Toronto. We
were thrilled with your service.

My mother has just sold her house in Ottawa, and will be moving to a
condo in Ottawa. Moving day is September, and she would love to talk
to you about a packing and moving quote.

Thanks and take care,


Hi Mike,

The move went really well. The two men you sent were professional, courteous and very competent. My wife and I were very impressed with both of them, and we are very happy with the choice we made to go with TMM.

We’ll definitely be referring you to others in the future.

Nadim Kara, Ontario

Wow – Way above the call of duty! Merci Beaucoup.

Again, thanks for outstanding customer service!

Ann Louise – Ottawa to Paris, Ontario

Hi Mike

Roger and I wanted to let you know we were very pleased with your moving services on June 23rd. 2012.

You were very easy to talk to from the first time we spoke. There was no surprises because the estimate for our move was very accurate.

We were very grateful that you also had made arrangements to move our piano on our moving day. The company Roy Fawcett Piano and Organs you provided did a great job. It was a relief to have our piano moved with such care.

Your crew of three young men were excellent. They all were very professional in every way. They worked at a good pace all day long aiming to please us in any way. They took the stress out of our day.

We highly recommend your company.

Thank you once again.

Roger and Chereen Gervais

Thanks for being part of what was for sure the smoothest move I have ever had – what a professional team!


Ann Louise Carson – Kemtville to Paris, Ont

Good Afternoon Mike,

I would like to thank you very much for providing a truck at our 3rd Annual Father’s Day Show. The truck was used to hold all the food donations that were given to help our local Kemptville Salvation Army Food Bank.

Susie was just incredible as she helped out all day loading the donations. Then after a long hot day she then delivered all the goods to the Salvation Army Food Bank.

What a first class operation and on behalf of the entire Highway 43 Car Club I would like to thank you both once again.

Kind Regards,

Rod Rafter – President, Highway 43 Car Club


The move went very smoothly and your team was beyond helpful.
I would recommend your company to anyone we know who is moving.
I can’t believe how great you made Saturday work …its been a long stressful
road for us and you helped make it easier for sure.

Krista Kennelly – Kemptville, Ont.

Hi Mike,

Everything went well. Brian & Robert were wonderful. They were kind to my mom and handled her antiques with care.

Thank you for everything.

Renee J. – Kemptville, Ont.

Good afternoon Mike

My niece and her husband are moving to Kemptville soon and will need movers.

I of course referred them to you for your great pricing, fantastic service and excellent staff. Blaine and I were so pleased with our move to Old Town Kemptville and I always try and refer you as such great community leaders in North Grenville.


Best Regards,

Teri D, Municipality of North Grenville


“No one ever said it was going to be easy to relocate to Los Angeles from Cornwall, Ontario. I had no idea how difficult it would actually be. Until the very last minute I figured I was going to drive my SUV with a U-Haul on the back with some of my possessions. Unfortunately my plans were stopped due to the fact that I could not import my SUV into the States without a major hassle.

I called countless movers and do-it-yourself type solutions. They were all out of my budget range and seemed ridiculously expensive.

In comes Mike. The total professional from the very first phone call. He assured me he could get me a good rate and get my stuff safely packed and to Los Angeles on time.

When he picked my shipment up there was a major snowstorm. I had just found out that my rides to the airport had cancelled due to this weather and I had to go to Montreal by train. I was in a panic I was late to get to the train station and I hadn’t even packed for the flight yet. Mike said “No worries I can get everything loaded for you and we can take care of the paperwork via computer.”

Mike was super polite, his correspondence was perfect and the delivery arrived safely and perfectly packed. All my prized guitars, music gear and household belongings were safe and sound.

Hats off to Mike and his crew. I can’t say enough good things about this experience!!

Thanks a million Mike!!

Mark D, North Hollywood, California”

Hi Mike

Just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU to you and the crew for our move yesterday; the (weather) conditions were so difficult but you all managed to see it through to the end.


Best wishes,

Just want to tell you that the move in was a total success. Your great team brought everything in quickly and were very accommodating in the placement of furniture and boxes. They carefully laid pad everywhere to protect our floors and when the move was completed and the pads removed there were no signs they’d been there. The guys in particular where friendly and showed care in the handling of our processions. As an ex facilities management officer with the Federal Government I have dealt with many moving crews and your crew ranks among the best I have worked with. I will recommend your services to our friends.

Thanks again,

Tom & Eloise C

Mike: note our email has changed. This is just a note to say thanks and advise you of how happy we were with the moving service provided by Great Canadian Van Lines. They were courteous, careful and helpful at both ends and our stuff arrived here on Friday Nov 18th and there wasn’t a scratch or a dent on anything — even the large glass that covers the desk was in perfect shape! I must say that’s a better record than we’ve ever had in moves within the city of Toronto, using top notch movers, where it seems something gets broken or damaged every time we move.

Thanks again. It was a job very well done and much appreciated!

Tom & Eloise C

Mrs. Maryanne A

Absolutely fantastic crew. They work fast, efficiently, and are polite, pleasant and their teamwork is excellent.

The crew reconfirmed the details of move and packing services at least 24 hours prior to the service being preformed. The crew arrived on time. They came in uniforms. They lay floor runners to protect the main traffic areas in our home. Our furniture was blanket wrapped for protection.

Mike McIntosh runs an exceptional moving agency. In addition to the remarkable detail he provided regarding logistics and inventory. He actually carried through with his promises to handle the items well, have the content delivered on time and place appropriately in our home. Extremely professional and a pleasure to work with.

Chris and Martin P

Dear Mike,

Just a note to say Thank You again for moving us to our new home in Arden Ont. The whole team was great + everyone’s professionalism and remarkable cheerfulness made what is normally (for many people) a nightmare into a good + positive memory. Your ability to “Lead by example”, attention to detail + skill for accepting + coping calmly with obstacles was a great reminder of how to live well and fully. We will always remember you with warmth & appreciation!

Best wishes, Chris and Martin P

Dear Mike,

On behalf of Friends of Hospice Ottawa, I would like to thank you and everyone at Total Move Management for the amazing work that you’ve done for our organization. Your service has helped us out tremendously on several occasions, and we’re lucky to have your generous support.

At our 2011 Girls’ Night Out, we sold a large number of furniture items during the silent and live auctions. Thanks to Total Move Management, all of our guests received their items efficiently and with no damages. Your team was extremely careful and we appreciate their hard work. We were shown the professionalism of your company once again when you donated your time to help us move our office. All of our furniture and boxes were moved in under two hours, and none of it was harmed. Your staff is always very respectful and a pleasure to work with.

Friends of Hospice Ottawa consider Total Move Management to be a partner in our initiative to provide quality hospice palliative care to Ottawa West, and we’re very grateful for your sponsorship. Thank you for all that you and Total Move Management have done for us, and we look forward to continuing our work together.

Best regards,
