REPLACEMENT WINDOW BLINDS August 26, 2014

We replaced the window coverings for every window in our condo. Love, love the new shades and the excellent service we received from Condo Blinds. Great quality and value and easy installation. Thank you for making the experience a positive one.


NO NONSENSE - QUALITY WORK August 25, 2014

I've worked with Garth Haugrud of Hillgreen and been pleasantly surprised by the expertise of his team, not doing work that didn't need to be done but tackling the most complex projects with ease.

Fair, skilled and dedicated.

Easy to recommend.


GREAT JOB August 21, 2014
By: GD0

Referred by a friend done great for my basement. Reasonable price and done within short period of time.


STAY AWAY. RUDE AND HIDDEN COSTS! August 20, 2014

Terry came by and gave me a quote for sealing some cracks in my driveway. He was very rude and often flip flopped on the price. He quoted me 200$ but after all was said and done he charged me 500$! I tried to protest but he was very abrasive and rude. When I looked at the detail of what I paid for he charged me 12$ a line to paint some lines on my driveway! He quoted me 6$ a line. Terry is un trustworthy and I will never recommend him to anyone. STAY AWAY!


I CAN'T THANK YOU ENOUGH FOR EVERYTHING. August 17, 2014

We recently had our AC unit installed and it has totally changed our home.
My wife and I found the entire Heating Ontario staff to be helpful, polite, and reliable.
They made the installation process a lot less stressful for everyone.


WAY TOO EXPENSIVE August 17, 2014

As soon as they knock I know already they are selling me something. I would appreciate it if they would rather just tell me straight off that they are marketing HVAC rather than telling me they are from the government and they are MANDATING ME TO UPGRADE MY OLD UNIT... SInce Iam a nice guy I still listened to them and the prices for the unit was way too expensive 30-40% more than others. The agent told me straight up that they make commission and the person on top of them too also makes commission (not sure but it sounds like multilevelmarketing/networking/pyramid to me?? who knows) which explains why it is so expensive, every member gets a cut on the price I pay. Long story short I told the agent not interested. He looks like a pakistani guy named khalil (according to his ID)

Piece of advice
Do not let them in they wont leave. I have to be a bit rude for them to leave.

I agree August 22nd, 2014

I think they are trained to act like someone from Government so that you are obligated to purchase their services. I also had pretty bad experience with this company agents.

WORST MOVING COMPANY August 12, 2014

Contracted this company to move my family from Vancouver Island to Central Alberta. Charged me more than twice what they quoted, Many of my belongings were broken, and many more missing. Water damage and mice living in my boxes. Tried to negotiate a more realistic price with them, got told if I wanted a better price, I would not be able to claim for damages. DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY!!!


OUR CARPETS HAVE NEVER LOOKED BETTER! August 4, 2014

Thank you to everyone at Carpet Cleaning Service.
My husband and I had given up on our carpeting but since your visit, our carpets look noticeably cleaner and brighter.
It has really changed the appearance of our home.

We appreciate it!

The camera shows you everything and it is really clean.

POOR CUST SERVICE August 3, 2014

Very disappointed. I received product I ordered 6 MONTHS after ordering it. I had a series of excuses on why they couldn't get it and why they kept receiving the wrong shipment. In the end they offered me $50 in store credit or $50 refund after I spent more than$1000 on my order. They are thieves.


POOR August 1, 2014

I phoned to get an estimate for an out of city location and was told that they would check if the town was within their range. They called back to confirm a date and time to do the estimate at which time they took information on the number of windows I wanted fixed. 20 minutes before the time frame when they were to arrive, I got a call stating they did not think it may be worth their while to come to give the estimate. It appeared they wanted me to guarantee to give them my business even before they had come to do the estimate...only giving a very, very general estimate over the phone. When I stated my dissatisfaction with this, they then suggested it really then was not worth their while to come. Unreliable in my opinion. Found someone else to come within 30 minutes of hanging up on them and the new contractor is arriving tomorrow. Was prepared to spend 10 grand...oh well. M


PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS COMAPNY!!!! August 1, 2014

This is absolutely the worst moving company in Canada. We were promised professional movers and staff. Yet when the day finally came for delivery, a person from "Labour Ready," shows up an hour early to help them.

We have moved four times for work. The previous three times we used U-haul and didn't even suffer a broken coffee cup. This time I wanted to treat my wife and we hired Kingsway. We have over 80 pictures of damages, and an estimated $3,500 in repairs. Thank you Kingsway!

We paid $1,800 for Kingsway to pack our belongings to ensure the best possible outcome. When it came time to unpack some of the items we saw had been simply thrown in a box without any wrapping. Wooden table legs were taped together and thrown in with light shades. They used packing tape to secure a number of screws and taped it to our entertainment table. When they removed the tape upon delivery the finish came off with the tape; not even an apology. They used an antique plate as a buffer for the toaster oven. Some of our items were in old boxes from the previous move - they didn't open the boxes or ensure they were properly packed; they simply threw them on the truck.

I'm not at liberty to talk about the actual move do to a separate settlement. I will tell you that we received our items six weeks after pick up, and had to sleep on air mattresses for five weeks.

During the unloading we watched in horror as the casual labour was given our 160lbs dining room table and told to take it up the stairs by himself. Before I could get to him, he had banged the table on every step and was dragging the exposed wood on the floor. At the same time, the driver and his permanent helper were sharing the weight of our 40lbs Weber charcoal grill.

The entire process was a case of us paying a company to abuse us and disregard our belongings.
We've had mirrors shattered, boots kicked through boxes, the tweeter ripped out of a pair of high-end speakers, and the frame on our chesterfield broken. The whole time the general manager is saying it isn't her problem.

My favourite part though, was when we told her that we were missing two boxes of electronics totaling $1,700.00 and a box of juice for our wine kit. She basically called me a liar and said that these items were never documented on their inventory so they cannot be missing.

At the end of the day, we paid Kingsway $6,800.00 for three months of anxiety, stress and arguments. Our damages are in excess of $3,500.00 and missing items in excess of $1,700.00. Kingsway graciously offered us $108.36 which includes a customer satisfaction bonus of $75.00.

PLEASE do not use this company!!! You WILL regret it.

Threaten Instead of Settle!! August 25th, 2014

So I received the following email from the General Manager:

Hi John,

We have been in communication with our legal team and have been advised to let you know that if you don’t remove the false comments on-line we will have to proceed in one of the following ways:
Collections
Small Claims
Liens on property

As you are currently in breach of contract as per the settlement you signed.

Kingsway will provide you with 48 hours to remove these comments/reviews or we will proceed with the above mentioned ways.

Yours truly,

I responded and received the following reply:

Hi John,

This is what I was instructed to advise you of. You can choose to take it as you would like, however before you decide how to proceed please review the terms of your settlement agreement and contract terms and conditions.

I replied that:

"If that is the case have your legal team draft me a letter citing specific "falsehoods. "

That was on August 12th. I haven't heard since. . .

They destroy my property, refuse to realistically settle and then threaten me because I post a negative review.

Is this really a company you want to do business with?

THANK YOU GTA RESTORATION :) July 30, 2014

"You answered our call late in the evening and worked until 4:00 A.M to get the water out and start the drying process quickly. Then the next day you stayed with us as we discovered mold problem from water the house has previously had, and you guys handled the remediation process professionally, thoroughly and promptly. Now that we have finished our rebuilding, I can also say that you have done everything necessary to make our home come out perfectly. Most importantly, I admire your sense of fairness and your integrity. I have recommended you to the Lake Shore Premier Residential Services and would recommend you to anyone who asked.”
