What our clients say……..
I can’t thank you enough for such an effortless…and efficient move. It is so great to feel so set up and settled so quickly.
Please forward a copy to Dawn and anyone else involved – your team, movers, Stan – the art expert, Liz – the floor planner .

I hired your company because I felt very comfortable with you as the face of the company. However, I wanted to send you this email to tell you how fantastic Ellen, Silvana and Bunny were. They did a super job and were great in dealing with my Mom. I worked very closely with Ellen over the last 3 weeks and must say she did an amazing job under challenging circumstances. She was always professional and kept calm under fire. A very sincere thanks to you, Ellen and your team. We could not have survived without you.
Wow. Just….wow. I can’t thank you enough. I’ll write an endorsement. I’ll hand out your business cards. From the very first phone call to shaking Chris’s hand as he left tonight after the artwork was hung, my entire customer experience – every interaction – with everyone on your team has been exceptional. That kind of experience is hard to come by these days. Pat yourselves on the back.
My mom passed away on November 4. As you can imagine, my brother & I have been very busy trying to take care of all the “stuff” that goes with this. I can’t thank you & Move Seniors Lovingly enough for all the help in these 2 moves. From yourself & Margo & Liz (she’s Ab Fab) & Nicole & all the guys doing the heavy lifting. Everyone took care of me (I was a mess, more than normal) & they realized I was overwhelmed. I can’t thank all of you enough for your kindness & compassion. I have passed along your company’s name to several people. I wish all of you the best. Keep on doing what you do. I’m glad all of you were there to help me through those crazy times.
Take care. Janine
On behalf of our family, I wanted to express our gratitude to you and all your colleagues for the caring and professional manner in which you handled the move of my mother, Grace, from Winnipeg to Toronto Oct 2016.
From the time we first met until the job was completed, we felt comforted by the attention to detail and awareness of how stressful this move was for everyone involved. Being able to bring my mother into her fully furnished suite at Delmanor Northtown was a great relief to everyone. I can’t imagine doing this any other way now that we have experienced the full service your group provided from beginning to end of the project.
Feel free to forward this message to your colleagues in Winnipeg. Their crew was also fantastic.
If we can serve as a reference for your group in the future, we would be honoured to speak highly about your team.

Right from the start, I found Dawn and her team punctual, efficient, and fully in control of what they were doing at each stage. They were unfailingly pleasant and courteous at all times. And they were always honest, refunding me a considerable sum, as the job required less time than they had estimated at the beginning. I have received many compliments about their work.
Stan, the picture hanger, did an outstanding piece of work, even returning several days later at no additional charge to hang two pictures which were being framed during his first visit. During the first visit he made sure that there was an appropriate place for these two later pictures when they were ready to be hung. I have also referred several visitors, impressed by his work, to Move Seniors Lovingly and Stan in particular.
Of course, I’d be happy to answer any other questions. I would not hesitate to recommend Move Seniors Lovingly in the highest possible terms.
Dawn, Thank you for all of your assistance with my aunt’s move. Your team was very professional and easy to work with. Thank you for everything!! The suite looks amazing. My aunt likes it, but said she still wanted to think about moving in, but she did agree to stay. It will be a transitional time for her, and I’m hoping she will slowly adjust. Once again, i want to express my thanks for everything, and for taking care of everything in such an effective & efficient manner. Kind Regards, Elizabeth
Dawn, I must say that my sister and I were quite pleased with everything. Things went so smoothly and Mom was happy and overall it wasn’t the headache we expected it to be. Thanks to all those that were involved. Thanks again Sandy
Many thanks for the excellent service of Dawn and her crew. They made my move to Davenhill a very smooth one indeed. Sincerely, Doreen
Dear Dawn, I realized today that it is just three weeks since I moved to Christie Gardens. I have been grateful many times since then for you and your team for the work you did to make that move an easy one for me. I especially noticed that the choices made by all of you as to where to put things made real sense and as I look around, you and your team have made the suite feel like home for me. Many thanks for your help and hard work! Jane
Dear Margot and Brian,
I second the motion. Dawn did an exceptional job. I returned to Jackolyn’s apartment late afternoon, and everything was so organized and clear. While I was there in the morning, I really appreciated the care that she and Carlos evidenced with Jackolyn’s items, especially her artwork. Please feel free to use me as a reference, if you ever need one. Best, Frances
Hi Margo—It was so nice to finally meet you and your husband—and I Thank You for the lovely bouquet—- it confirms the impression of you I had formed some time ago…..that you have a very kind+thoughtful nature.
It is not surprising that you have chosen to provide a much-needed service to Seniors! You have a natural empathy and consideration for us, the Old Folks (and God Bless you for that).
It’s also a pleasure to have a face to put with the voice on the phone! And to meet Brian too. You emanate a warm spirit of Loving Kindness…….
It was a pleasure to meet you both……..Ruth.

Just a note to thank you so much for the wonderful service you provide family members of seniors who are in transition. Gina was a joy to work with. There wasn’t one thing that I asked of her that she wasn’t able to provide. Kudos to Gina, her crew, and everyone at Move Seniors Lovingly. We will certainly recommend you to our friends, many of whom are experiencing the same difficult time.
I saw the suite this morning, and I’m so pleased. It really does look terrific. The paint job, the clean, the arrangement of everything….all so nice and welcoming. Both pleasing to the eye and comfortable. No detail overlooked, no matter how small. I’m grateful to you both.

Hi Margo and Barb, the move went very well and I wanted to pass on my thanks to you, Leslie and the team.
I know I drove you crazy and I wanted to offer to be a reference if you ever need it. Thanks for hanging in with me.
The guys doing the physical move were the most professional movers I have ever encountered and I have moved often in my life.
Thank you so much for a job well done.
Ps – the apron uniforms are a great brand strategy, nice touch.
All the best, Tracey

Prepare parent’s home for the market
“Hi Margo and Brian:
I would like to take this opportunity to send you a big heartfelt thank you.
Our family had the daunting task of clearing my mother and late father’s home of 43 years. My parents very pack rats to say the least and the job ahead would have required us at least three to four months to clear, clean, fix up their home. “Move Seniors Lovingly” ( Margo and Brian’s company) were great. From the time we signed the contract the house was cleared, painted, cleaned and fixed in just 10 days. The various teams worked side by side, stayed on schedule and got the work done professionally yet lovingly. Margo and Brian helped us find a real estate agent and the house was sold within one week of being put on the market You guys are amazing and I would recommend you to anyone that wants a reliable stress free job done”

I know it was a huge venture, not to mention a very emotional one for myself and my parents, but it all worked without a hitch. My parents are safe and sound in a wonderful environment, which is such a comfort to me.”

It seemed like magic, however I know there was a tremendous amount of planning behind the scenes, negotiating and of course plain old fashion hard work.

“The suite did look wonderful. I was impressed with how many things you were able to accommodate and how you were able to capture Graces’ style and carry it over from one home to another. I know Grace was very pleased as I was able to see your handiwork when I went upstairs with her to help her connect her television and phone. I too look forward to moving more clients into the Beechwood and I hope to see you soon.”
