Westmount Moving Pledges To Deliver On Its Promises

By: Heather @ 7:21 pm

Unfortunately, the moving industry does not have any significant barriers to entry. Consequently, there are far too many unprofessional movers that do a poor job and leave clients in the lurch.

It is a constant battle for professional and reputable companies to prove to clients that doing business with fly by night operators might appear cheaper but can be far more costly in the long run and cause a lot of headaches.

This article is a great example of how customers suffer in the hands of a bad mover. Researching the moving company with the BBB and selecting a mover that is a member in good standing with the Canadian Association of Movers (CAM) is a good way to ensure that your mover will deliver on its promises.

Share The Warmth Food Drive

By: Heather @ 10:16 pm

We are pleased to be launching our annual food drive next week in collaboration with Share the warmth.

Here’s the plan:

Our sales team does numerous in home estimates on a daily basis. For the next 7 weeks, they will go to the home estimate with an empty Westmount Moving carton. We will ask the client to place any non-perishable food items that they do not want to move into the box and our movers will bring it back to our depot for a final delivery to Share the warmth.

We are also offering our warehouse to anyone in the area that would like to drop off any non-perishable food items at Westmount Moving for final delivery to share the warmth.

The Drive will begin next Monday with the delivery to share the warmth on Monday January 4th. 

We would love to be able to fill an entire moving truck with food at a time when it’s most desperately needed (after the holidays).
