About

Originally from Cornwall, ON, I moved to Kingston from Ottawa 15 years ago.  I always wondered where I would lay some roots and realized in my 40's, I needed to live by the St. Lawrence River.  My buddy was in the military and just got posted to Kingston.  Without hesitation, I told him I am coming with you. 

 

I didn't have much at all, starting fresh so to speak.  Relying only on my acquired skills and education, finances were very low.  Well after 6 years of trying to survive and find good employment, I was so frustrated that I decided to start my own company.  I started a handyman business, called Skills Central. 

 

2 years in, I was asked to do a move for Kingston Housing by fluke.  It went well and shortly later I was asked again by Ontario Works.   Enough calls were coming in to do moves that, I was faced with a decision.  At that point I decided to scrap the handyman work and totally concentrate on creating a moving company.  5 years later, we are incorporated, 9 employees, 2 new 16 ft cube trucks, fully insured, an A+ BBB rating, 2.5 years of being rated #1 in Kingston ON by customer reviews and offering a new state of the art self check out quote/estimate system.
