Etobicoke, Ontario -
Mr Relokate, a company providing moving services in Toronto, has issued a statement urging the city’s residents to be discerning while hiring movers following a recent scandal in the local industry.
The Toronto moving services provider is drawing attention to a recent bust by the Toronto police which led to the owners of a group of moving companies being arrested. Cemal Ozturk and Dogan Celik oversaw several moving companies including O'Canada Movers, Roadway Moving and Storage Inc., SafeBound Moving and Storage Inc., Canadian Principal Movers, All You Can Move, Right on Track Moving, New Vision Moving, Greenway Moving, and 12282569 Canada Inc.
The accused would quote low prices at the outset of the job but then demand more money once the customer’s belongings were loaded onto their truck. This would put the customer in a precarious situation and they would be forced to pay the inflated prices. This modus operandi was exposed by an undercover operation carried out by CBC Marketplace, a prominent Canadian consumer watchdog. The accused would also frequently change the names of their companies to skirt the accruing bad reviews. Both were charged with four counts each of fraud, mischief, possession of property obtained by crime, and false pretense, as well as conspiracy to commit indictable offenses.
In its statement, the spokesperson for Mr Relokate Greater Toronto Movers talks about the scandal and the care that Toronto renters and homeowners should take when hiring a moving company by saying, “The recent arrests are a blight on the hardworking men and women providing honest and high-quality moving services in Toronto. We strongly condemn the price gouging tactics employed by the accused. Here at Mr Relokate, we use our years of experience to quote an estimate that we know we can confidently deliver. We can give you an accurate estimate depending on the number of items to be moved, the distance of the move, and the time that the moving job is going to take. Our estimation process is so fine-tuned that we can account for all the factors that can affect the cost and duration. Our astute and trained crew considers every detail no matter how minute it is - from parking access to the walking distance between your house and our trucks. The result is that our initial estimate is very close to what you will end up paying. We assure you that there will be no extra charges tacked on to give you a nasty surprise when the bill is due. We also want to appeal to customers to do their due diligence before hiring a moving company as you do end up entrusting them with your valuables. If you are looking for moving services in Toronto, also make sure to investigate a company’s work history and read its online reviews before hiring them.”
