I followed the advice of a friend and hired Two Small Men to help move a three‐bedroom home from Edmonton back to Barrie, Ontario. Long journey but their time and cost estimates proved to be spot-on. Two Small Men movers are both patient and efficient in getting the job done. This is my thanks to a great company that made a tough job pleasant.

I hired Two Small Men to move from an office in Nanaimo to Richmond because we’ve grown past our capacity. The guys came in, and had everything moved in a day. Very professional and efficient movers.

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 got back to you quickly on rates and availability. We needed help on 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.
