Peter and Alladin were excellent. They carefully wrapped our furniture so that all arrived in perfect condition. They were able to move large items from the basement of one house to the basement of our new home with ease and with no damage to the walls...we were impressed. This is our second time using Metropolitan Movers to move from Toronto to Prince Edward County. Thank you Peter and Alladin.

Dima and Viktor were our movers. They packed an antique glass cabinet with precision and care. The cabinet is being shipped to the US. Hopefully it arrives in the same condition it left.
