I have shipped with this company a few times before the last time in October 2015. I shipped a truck from Alberta to Ontario. With alot of bad communication I received my truck. Now im getting phone calls from the carrier that Automoves contracted that they havent paid their bill. Now the contracting company is coming after me for the payment. I had paid Automoves immediately after the truck was delivered. I have tried to call several times to resolve this issue with no avail.

Do not ship your vehicle with these people, as now I have to pay for the transport twice, otherwise the contracting company can put a lien on my vehicle.
Horrible company!!!!!

Shipped my Mercedes G class from Toronto to Florida earlier in December. We were going for a few months only so the paperwork was straightforward. My wife wanted to leave a few personal items in the car so we had to fill out form 3299. Mark was very helpful and answered all our questions and concerns in great detail. From start to finish the whole process took around 12 days but the car itself spent 7 days in transit. Will use them again in March when coming back.

Great service, fast delivery. Rail promised us 14-16 days
and Automoves got our car from Calgary to Toronto in 6.

Automoves helped us ship 2 family vehicles from Mississauga to Quebec
City earlier this year. I am happy that Mark was very accommodating with our short notice booking and answered all my concerns in the process. Our vehicles
arrived on time and without damage so we are definitely happy about
the service and affordable cost.

I had to ship my SUV on short notice from Edmonton
to Toronto earlier this month. Our company was
downsizing and my contract was not renewed. I
considered railway at first but they don't allow
personal items in the car. After a few quotes I
realized that shipping by truck is a faster option
and I could fill the back of my Ford Escape with
clothing, my computer and some other items. I sold
my furniture so this saved me from hiring movers.
My Escape arrived in 7 days. It was somewhat dirty
from the road conditions but there was no damage
and service was delivered as promised. I am happy
and grateful this went a lot smoother than I
anticipated!

Do not be fooled by these 'great reviews'. If you click on the names of anyone who has left a good review, you will immediately see that this person has only ever written one review. CLASSIC SCAM. To further prove this, you will find a couple of 'people' who have left Automoves a good review and they have written 2 reviews total on n49 (looks legit). That is until you realize that everyone has left a perfect review for the same 2 companies: Automoves and iMove Canada (also based in Mississauga...seems fishy, I hope you are all connecting the dots now).

CBC exposed this company as a SCAM, and they are pure and simple a scam (http://www.cbc.ca/m/news/go-public-it-s-kind-of-like-my-car-was-held-ransom-1.3046598). Automoves does not own it's own trucks or trailers. What they do is hire a tow truck to move your vehicle to a local storage lot, with no intention of ever actually shipping it. From then on, you pay continuous fees to them for anything they can dream of (my experience). Another tactic they use, as exposed by CBC, is that they will broker the load out to another transport company and not pay them anything. This leaves the company that actually transported the car without any compensation. A scenario as such will typically result in your car being held for ransom until you pay the company that did the work what is owed to them. In the end, you have had to pay 2x to move your car while Andy Leeds (owner of Automoves) laughs all the way to the bank.

You're probably wondering why I know all this...well I just picked up my car from a local storage facility. It was supposed to be across the country yesterday...but when it didn't show up for delivery and no one at Automoves answered my calls or called me back after repeated attempts, I went out to find it. Luckily I did, and luckily the company that was storing my car allowed me to pick it up from them granted I had the necessary paperwork proving it was my car. I paid the storage company what they were owed. But it will be a goddamn freezing day in hell before Automoves gets a penny from me. I think a letter from my lawyer is more fitting.

DO YOURSELF A FAVOUR AND STAY AWAY!!! IF YOU NEED TO PAY A BIT MORE TO SOMEONE OTHER THAN AUTOMOVES TO GET THE JOB DONE, THEN DO IT AND BE GRATEFUL YOU READ THESE REVIEWS.

Hired these guys to ship a car from Ontario to Edmonton. Promised delivery in a week. The week passes and no car. They avoid calls. Had to threaten to call the police. Andy Leeds finally emails back and tells me my car is in Winnipeg. I tracked my car down and find out it's still in Ontario. They still keep saying it's in Winnipeg. Turns out they hired a local tow company to tow my car the place I was storing it at. They instructed the tow truck driver to leave it on the street and they'll come get it. They never finished the delivery and left me to pay the tow bill. Andy Leeds said he would pay the bill. He never did and will not return phone calls. Do not use this company.

Shipped my car to Nova Scotia when it was supposed to be from Edmonton to Toronto. They had no idea where my car went to for over a month. Owner is shady, stopped replying to my emails and phone calls after they couldn't track my car and took deposit from me. Do not use them!
By Cerise Kangaroo-rat on Sep 28, 2015
If you are looking to have your vehicle shipped safely DO NOT use this company.
My vehicle was picked up in Alberta to be shipped to Ontario door to door enclosed
carrier.
I ended up receiving it by a TOW TRUCK that they called , not even a flat bed!!
My vehicle sat in a distribution warehouse in Brampton for four days before I
received it .I received it with chips and scratches on my 47 year old vehicle.
No returned calls,when they see your number it goes into voicemail.
They just don't give a crap.They don't have their own trucks they rely on other
companies to do the transporting for them while they take your money for the job.
DO NOT EVEN CONSIDER THEM. YOU WILL REGRET IT
HIRE AT YOUR OWN RISK
PS. That 1/2 star above should not be there.
By amirhussein on Sep 10, 2015
I want to thank Automoves for getting my vehicle
from Edmonton to Toronto in just over 5 days. I
took a new job and had to leave short notice. Mark
at their office was very helpful from the get go -
my car was picked up within 48 hours on Thursday
and arrived in Toronto on Tuesday morning. Great
service and affordable cost!
By carlmikkelsense on Jul 12, 2015
Automoves helped me deliver 3 of my antique cars from a warehouse in Calgary to
my new property in Niagara Falls. Their customer service was very attentive to
all my questions and concerns, updated me throughout the process and delivered
my cars within promised timeline. A+ team.
By marcca on Jun 29, 2015
Superb service! Got my Ford truck delivered from Edmonton in 6 days from the time of drop off. I was also allowed to put work tools in my cab which saved me the hassle of having to find another mover/shipping company. Thank you for all the help!
By dannyw on Jun 04, 2015
We shipped a Ford F150, Ford F350 and a Dodge Ram dually with a service
box from Edmonton to Mississauga for our upcoming construction project.
Mark was on top of things right from the get go and got the vehicles
delivered to us within 7 days. very happy with the service provided!
By eisnerj on May 22, 2015
Automoves shipped my new Hyundai Sonata from Toronto dealership to my new residence in Montreal. I relocated for work and it happened that I was buying a new car and decided to deal with a Toronto dealershipthat I was familiar with. Once the deal was closed Mark helped me arrange for pick up of my car within 48 hours and I received it in Montreal the following day. Great service and super fast delivery!
By ahmedabukar on Apr 24, 2015
Do not do business with Automoves they area frauds. Andy Leeds is a crook, they look up front and honest but will rip you off if you don't believe me believe CBC, they just exposed this company.

ALL THESE REVIEWS ARE FAKE THEY DO IT THEMSELVES BUYERS BEWARE
By bkcanada on Feb 21, 2015
So I just landed in Toronto, took a cab home and could not believe my eyes - my car is already here. And I was planning to rent one for at least another 4 days. Now the customer service told me that it was an exception and this time around the car went on a "team" truck, but still, 3 days from Calgary to Toronto is very impressive the competitive quote that I got.
Truly great service and very pleasant to deal with. You made my week!

I used Automoves to ship my 2010 Range Rover HSE from St Catharines, ON to Edmonton, AB.
Because of my busy travel schedule for work I opted for a pick up at my residence and have it
delivered to my office in Edmonton. I booked a week in advance in order to match their departure
schedule so the vehicle arrived on my preferred date (or close enough). It was a straightforward
shipping experience and I`m happy Automoves delivered as promised.

I wish there was a negative 5 STAR because I would give it to this company.

WORST WORST WORST COMPANY, DON'T EVER HIRE!!

Even though it's end of the year and holiday seasons, but to other companies, a delay of 3 - 4 weeks of waiting time is UNREASONABLE as well.

Automoves give you false hopes and promises and they'll never respond to your calls and emails after tell you when to expect it. They don't tell me what the update on the vehicle.
Gave me false hopes, telling me yes it'll arrive this/that day but NEVER.
Every week I finally managed to get someone to help me and tells me when to expect it. But just NOTHING!!

Frustrated and finally I tracked where my vehicle was and got another company to ship, which they did within 2 days and even lower cost.
Terrible service, leaves customers hanging, gives false hopes and will ignore your call and email and no updates.

HIRE AT YOUR OWN RISK
By Denise Monitor-lizard on Jan 10, 2015
I am basically in a legal battle with the owner!!! The owner demanded money upfront my friend dropped car off in Mississauga on Dec24/2014, I was reassured that I would recd my car no later than jan2/2015 in Edmonton. I called the owner over 20 times never returned my calls & he was avoiding me.
On Jan4/2015 sent my friend over to his location in Mississauga the car was still sitting at that location, it was ner shipped. The police were called & the owner could not be located or reached. As per police instructions my friend had to get tow truck driver to unlock car & tow it away. Now I have to file a small claims suit against him since he refuses to reimburse me the money!!!!!!!
By trossssauga on Jan 03, 2015
I transported my BMW M3 with Automoves just before the holiday season. I dropped the car at their terminal in Mississauga and got it delivered to a terminal in Calgary. The actual transport time was 8 days but I booked the move 2 weeks in advance as per their customer service. Vehicle arrived without damage and Automoves included a free car wash as part of the service. A+ service. Thank you! Ross.
By boriskhoyker on Dec 29, 2014
I was referred to Automoves by a friend of mine who used them for a previous move to Edmonton.
I got a job in Calgary and needed my Ram truck for work purposes ASAP. It was picked up from
my residence in North York within 48 hours and Automoves got it to my workplace in Calgary
within 8 days (I think actual transit time was 6). Customer service provided with constant updates
on shipment and gave advance notice when it was to be offloaded so I am very happy with the experience.
By jpatel88888 on Dec 15, 2014
Automoves helped us ship 2 Ford F150 service trucks for our project in Northern Ontario.
From point A to point B the whole shipping experience was seamless. We booked the
shipment 2 weeks in advance, dropped the vehicles at their terminal and got them at our
office 5 days later. 2 more trucks will be shipped after holidays and we`ll be bringing them
back in spring. A+ service, John
By caramelcakes2014 on Dec 06, 2014
Shipped my Subaru from Toronto to Edmonton just in time for the snowstorm. Thank God for all wheel drive!
But really, I just wanted to leave my feedback and the positive experience I had with Automoves staff in Edmonton.
I was already in Alberta and asked for my car to be picked up from my mother living in Toronto. The gentleman doing
the pick up was very accommodating and patient with my mom who had no clue how to boost the car to get it out of
underground parking. I booked a different shipping company at first recommended by my friends, but they did not even bother with the car once it would not start. Once again, thank you for your help and the pleasant experience!
