I was more than pleased with the Rented Truck Driver services, and all those that I dealt with: Frank, Kevin (driver) and Dana. Everyone was professional, responsive, friendly and went above and beyond to make sure our move went well. Kevin was all of this, as well as helpful, considerate, kind and prompt and kept us apprised of the trip/move at every step of the way. I would highly recommend this company and Kevin for any move. The fact that their office was on the other side of the country from us in ** was not a problem at all. Logistics of our move (cross Canada border) but all went smoothly!

Some company’s go above and beyond to make sure their customers are satisfied, this company surpasses ABOVE AND BEYOND. I don’t even know where to begin. Frank and his employees are exceptional all the way around. Kind, diligent, respectful, fair, honest. Our driver, Anthony, not only got the job done, but was a pleasure to meet and took excellent care of our 5 dogs and our property. Moving sucks, but this company makes it a vacation. Not once did we have to worry about a thing. I’m not normally one to write a long review, but this company, I’m just shocked. We are so thankful for them and if we ever needed something transported again we would never use nor trust a different company.

Thank you again!
