I was looking for a moving company to move my entire inventory to another warehouse. My colleague recommended Two Small Men for their professiolism. I followed the advice and received a super moving service. Thank you for great job.

I called several moving companies but I was most comfortable with Two Small Men's reviews and got a really professional feel when I first called in. They were great to deal with and get back to you quickly on rates and availability. We needed help packing a pod and getting a two bedroom across the city. They moved everything tight but carefully and I appreciate that they used runners, blankets, foam and plastic where needed.

I was moving from Vancouver to White Rock. There was a lot of packing boxes in my basement and the idea of moving them all was pretty daunting. I hired Two Small Men - they were very efficient, and finished moving within one day.

I just moved in from Edmonton Downtown to Fraser and I got an easy  moving experience with Two Small Men. I just got their company from google and called immediately and afterwards we had a very friendly transaction and they did what they promised. I am very happy on my moving day and no regrets for contacting this company even if I never heard them before. If you are looking for a free-stress moving day, I highly recommend this company.
