This company is absolutely amazing. Movers deliver belongings on time and handle fragile stuff with extreme care. Their customer service is exceptional. I highly recommend them.

There are a lot of adjectives I could use, all of them good but essentialy, SMS (Strive First) provides a reliable, honest and affordable service. Yves is a great guy and a gentleman. He does what he says he is going to do and does it extremely well. I would not hesitate to use him again or share his company's info with any of my friends or associates.

I've used SMS' (Strive First) service recently to move 2 large sofas. Yves and I communicated earlier, very nice to connect with him, we setup a time and a fair price. They arrived on time and above all we appreciated that safety was at the forefront for them. I was exceptionally pleased with their service and would highly recommend them to family and friends!
