Tony, Costa and Cash were amazing movers. They got my move done quickly and with great care. They made sure to put runners throughout the house so they didn't dirty up the carpet and put everything in the room we wanted it to go in. Seamless move. Would highly recommend.

We had Dom, Andre, Ivan and Chuck move us, this is the second time we have used them and this time was as good as the first. They don’t quit until the job is done. The fellas are very friendly and helpful. Would use them again for sure.

What a great moving experience. Everything from start to finish was really smooth. The quoting process with Angela was great- she was so on the ball and the whole reason I decided to hire Sparta. On the day of, Dominic and his team were friendly, professional, and took good care of my stuff. The guys worked hard and I was happy with the end result. I actually enjoyed the day, and I HATE moving! Big thanks to Angela, Dominic, Chuck, Anthony & Cash.

We are very happy with Sparta movers. Michael was very helpful and professional right from giving us an estimate and helping us reschedule without any hassle. All the movers- Dominic, Chuck, Zied, Cash & Andre were very quick, professional, helpful and courteous. Best movers we have come across. They deserve more than 5 stars. I'm very happy with each of their work 😊

We dealt with Michael B., Dominic, Chuck, Ziad and Cash - they were all super professional, considerate and great at what they do! From booking the move to waving goodbye when the moving team were finished - the team was helpful, caring and hard working. Thanks team for making our move so seamless!

The entire experience with Sparta was seamless. Right from my initial communication with Michael, the moving advisor, to Angie, who packed, and Ryan and his team who did all the heavy lifting their professionalism, communication and work ethic was exceptional. Moving is never easy but they definitely reduced the stress. Loved the online portal where I could adjust my inventory and it’s all very transparent as to costs, materials needed, and estimated times. Michael was so helpful and patient answering all my questions and adjusting the estimate as needed. It was nice to see Angie and Ryan patiently mentoring and teaching the new guys. Highly recommend them. Next time I’ll get them to do the entire pack instead of just a partial. They are so efficient!

We moved from Toronto to Airdrie (AB) with Sparta Movers. Best experience ever. They were super careful, packed everything with care, delivered on time, not a single box was missing, no furniture or electronics were damaged. Totally recommend.
