They are very organized, ontime, super careful with furniture, floor and walls, and very fast. Moving will be way less stressful when Jeff is taking care of it.

'McKinstry Moving moved me through a blizzard and they were great!! They took extra care to make sure all of my items were transported from point A to point B in pristine condition, and took so much of the hassle of moving out of the actual moving day! They were a real joy to work with and I would highly recommend hiring them for your next job. They were very communicative throughout the day as well and when anything needed to change or plans needed to deviate with the weather (outside of our control obviously), they were very calm and were always very professional. Any move can be stressful, especially a longer-distance move...but do yourself a favour and hire McKinstry Moving and it will be much less stressful for you next time :)'

'Jeff and his team were recommended to us by a friend, as we downsized our home from three floors to one. From our first meeting, Jeff earned my confidence and trust. He and his team of professional movers were awesome. Not one problem arose from beginning to end. Efficient, strong, professional, polite, good-natured, timely and accommodating. They provided wonderful value and service beyond our expectations. Jeff's team at McKinstry Moving has our categorical endorsement and recommendation. Thank you!'

'Great experience working with McKinstry Moving. From start to finish, the movers were super professional and efficient. All of our stuff was handled like it was their own, and despite having to lug furniture up a steep hill, they didn't miss a beat. They turned what could've been a tough day, into a surprisingly enjoyable one. Big thanks to the team and their hard work!'

'Do not look any further for your moving needs as Jeff McKinstry and the team at McKinstry Moving is your one and only stop for small, medium and large moves. Jeff came highly recommended from a close friend and professional colleague of mine and the outcome exceeded my expectations. As any move can be highly stressful, Jeff and his team (Rory, Patrick and Liam) were calm, professional, caring, patient and attentive to my every obsessive compulsive request on placement, care and attention to the furniture and items at my home. Hands down the GOAT of the moving industry. Reach out to Jeff if you want a stress-free, outcome-focused moving experience. All action, no talk.'

'By far the best moving experience I’ve ever had and I’ve moved a lot. The team was very responsive to emails and took great care of my belongings. They were on time, courteous, well priced for the service, and honestly just great people. It was a disgustingly hot day and I have a lot of stairs at my new place and I didn’t hear a single grumble or negative word. I’ve moved many times qnd this was far and away the best experience I’ve ever had. I cannot say enough good things about this team. Hire them. You will be so relieved to not have to worry about anything.'

'Movers were very friendly and communicative. Great care was taken to ensure things were wrapped to avoid damage. The entire move was about an hour quicker than anticipated, and everything was placed in exactly the spots that were requested. I would definitely suggest these guys if you’re in the market for honest, hard working movers.'

'Jeff packed up my shipping container with my Pilates Studio (business) equipment, and my household goods to go from Ottawa, ON to Victoria, BC. He was methodical, careful, and extremely efficient. He managed to fit everything in the container beautifully, and with care. For items that were disassembled in order to make more space, he was available over the phone to help me reassemble equipment and furniture on the other end if needed. All of my items arrived safely and in excellent condition. I simply cannot give enough high praise for Jeff and his crew. I am so grateful for the work they did, and I highly recommend them for any type of move.'

'Jeff has moved our family three times in two years, and we wouldn't go with anyone else. He and his team have always been on time, efficient, super friendly and flexible - picking up items for us last minute from storage lockers and basements of our relatives. They've gone the extra mile multiple times to get our unreasonably large couch through some tiny spaces. He has a sixth sense for assessing the dimensions of a space and determining what will fit and exactly how to get the job done. Truly can't recommend McKinstry Moving enough!'

'We recently moved to a new city using McKinstry Moving and were very pleased with our experience. Jeff arrived on time the day before the move and helped us disassemble some items such as the treadmill and carefully wrapped large items of furniture. His team arrived on time on moving day and every member was polite, courteous and treated our belongings with competence and care. We appreciated there were no surprise charges at the end of the day. We would not hesitate to recommend McKinstry Moving for your next move!'
