some of the nice things people say

Na die Mario's se span,

Ek moes op 6 Februarie 2018 vanaf Bellville na Stellenbosch verhuis en is deur ‘n kennis aan u aanbeveel. Ek wil u komplementeer op die volgende aspekte van u diens:

  1. U het baie vinnig op die elektroniese versoek om ‘n kwotasie gereageer.
  2. Die kwotasie was regtig baie billik – letterlik die helfte goedkoper as ander maatskappye (die sogenaamde “grotes”).
  3. U trok was betyds.
  4. Die trekspan onder leiding van Arnold en Colin was uiters professioneel en baie vriendelik. Inteendeel, hulle het meer as die ekstra myl gestap. Ek sal hulle gesindheid altyd onthou en vertel vir almal hoe hulle my gehelp en bygestaan het.
  5. Hulle was baie vinnig en effektief.
  6. Hulle het my meubels met groot versigtigheid hanteer.

Mag dit verder goed gaan met u besigheid. Indien ek weer in die Kaap moet verhuis, sal ek beslis weer van u dienste gebruik maak. Ek sal u ook beslis aanbeveel!

Vriendelike groete!

I just wanted to let you know that this team of guys were fantastic. They were so polite, quick and extremely helpful. I tried to post this picture on Facebook but couldn’t tag you so thought I would send a letter through. Please pass on my biggest thanks and to you as well.
From my first point of contact with you until the close of the job I was amazed and the level of service.

Kindest regards,


To the Mario's Team

A huge thank you to your crew. They were absolutely wonderful to work with and I would recommend them. The care they took with our belongings and little effort is commendable.

They are a friendly and happy bunch of guys and a pleasure.

Attached is photo that you can share on your Facebook or Website.

Thank you very much Ernest and your team for your professional, efficient and friendly manner in which you delivered my household contents on 22nd July 2015. Your friendly and confident introduction made one feel at ease. Your years of moving experience showed in the confidence you have to move different items through tight places at times. Total care was always shown with the moving of the items. You and your team can feel proud of delivering a professional and friendly service. Mario's Movers can be proud of you.

My household contents were in storage for 6 years. The storage facilities are well maintained and of a high standard. My contents were delivered in the same condition as when they were first stored. A huge thank you.

I will highly recommend Mario's Movers. My appreciation for the excellent move.

Kind regards,

Lynette Hellyer.

I am writing to let you know that our move from a farm just outside Stanford to Mouille Point was perfectly organized and led by Arnold. He was very professional and the way he motivated his team was admirable. He was a joy to work with.

This is not our first move with Mario's - I will highly recommend your company to my friends and colleagues especially with Arnold at the helm.

Kind regards,

WOW what a move, over 55 years of married life we have had plenty of moves, from Zimbabwe to Rustenburg, two moves there, then two in Johannesburg, then to Cape Town, but none could compare with what your team did this morning.

They were on site before time, were very professional in their work, all with a smile and just such a wonderful team. There were no breakages, even taking a door off a bedroom was all too easy.

What a pleasure to deal with them, thank you very much indeed. Our daughter who was on site to assist us is involved with clients who move about and she will recommend you to them all.

Very sincerely,

Jim and Shirley Begley

Thanks for the move yesterday.

My wife said the guys were unbelievable and your foreman/boss man on site is brilliant.

What a pleasure.

We were very satisfied with your movers - they were efficient, helpful and we had no breakages, so we are very happy.

Compliments to Ernest and his team.

A belated thank you to Mario’s Movers, for the professionalism shown in all disciplines, shown in my move with you guys. This was actually a fun thing to do with you, and you’ll be highly recommended to all others, that want a hassle free move.

Next time I move, it’ll be 6 foot under, do you do those also??

Thanks and regards

On behalf of my wife and myself I’d like to thank you and your team for the professional manner in which you handled our move from Cape Town to Knysna on the 23rd & 24th of April.

Your company was recommended to us by the Morison’s, whom you had moved a year earlier.

The experience from the time I spoke to sales to being handed my invoice, in Knysna by Charles was one of sheer pleasure, excluding the payment!

You can be extremely proud of your team and I must mention the sales team for their friendly advice and help. Goodman and Kevin for the way they packed up our kitchen and to Charles and his team for the professional manner in which they handled the loading, transporting and unloading of our possessions. Nothing was too much for this team.

Thank you once again.

Kind regards

To the Mario's team

I am writing to say how impressed I was with Mario's Movers and the professionalism of all the staff who dealt with our move yesterday.

The sales team was excellent in terms of communication and orchestrating the staff. They kept me informed of everything as it was being done. The 5 staff who dealt with the moving of the items displayed humour, professionalism and courtesy – something I hasten to add is lacking amongst many South African businesses!

I was genuinely impressed with the whole event and amazed at the speed (which was never done to the detriment of any of the items moved) and obvious team work at play.

Mario's Movers was recommended to me by friends and I would have no hesitation whatsoever recommending the company to anyone.

Please pass on my grateful “thanks” to the team for making what could have been a stressful day into a very pleasant one.

Kind regards,

Katherine Richardson

I would like to take this opportunity to thank your team on the excellent service and professional manner in which they handled the move yesterday. A special mention to Arnold on the way he managed the team to ensure things ran smoothly, as well as his politeness and the manner in which he conducted himself is to be commended.

Much appreciated.

We had a fantastic move yesterday from Rondebosch to Simonstown.
The sales team, Christelle in admin, helpful and efficient and answering all my queries and concerns.

Ernest and his moving team were excellent. From the moment they arrived they were helpful, courteous and could not do enough to ease our stressful day. It really was a pleasure to move with Marios, thank you again.

I will not hesitate to recommend you highly to my friends and family.

As a retired diplomat, I have moved every two or three years from city to city on four continents. I have never experienced a more professional move than that undertaken for me last week by Arnold and his crew. You should be very proud.

April Glaspie

To the Mario’s team

My husband and I made the decision to move to Botswana on a temporary basis, and decided to store our household at Mario’s.
Little did we know it would be nearly 10 years until we saw our furniture again!!
We were AMAZED at the condition after all this time, including our paintings. Everything was very well looked after and the service, and staff was excellent.
A HUGE thank-you to Mario’s, we are very grateful.
Now if anyone has any ideas on how to fit a 3-bedroom house into a 2 bedroom flat……………….!!!

Kind regards,
Nick and Penny Mound.

Re:  Urgent move of Grand Piano

Thank you very much to you and your team for the fantastic service we received at such extremely short notice this week. Your service was outstanding as always and your ability to move our pianos in tricky circumstances is remarkable.

Dear Mario's Movers


Craig and I purchased a new home and we were looking for movers to relocate us from Higgovale to Constantia on the 25th of March 2011.

Due to the fact that I had on previous occasions seen the Mario's Movers vans in our area and specifically noted how friendly and efficient the staff appeared I remembered the name whilst doing my research. I in fact remember slowing down next to a van during someone else's move and commenting to the guys how happy they looked despite having started working hours before.

From that very first sales call, to meeting with Mario for a quote, the speed at which the quote was presented and the way in which the entire process was handled was impressive. On occasions when I called to confirm we were still on for the dates it felt as though my name was foremost in the mind of the sales team and they immediately put me at ease and in fact told me that it was going to be smooth running, hassle free and exciting. The day prior to the team of packers arriving the sales team once again reassured me that I had nothing to worry about because everything was under control. They were quite right!! The team arrived and swiftly moved into place with each individual knowing what was required of them. Things moved so swiftly I was asked if I wanted to move across at the end of 'packing day' as the actual move was to be the following day. This was just phenomenal. The fact that the team offered this option to us and displayed energy and enthusiasm in ensuring that we were happy meant everything to us at a time when one is usually very stressed. It was already outside business hours by the time we reached Constantia but at no stage did I see any indication from any staff member that they were pushing to go home, they simply followed instructions and got the job done.

With the correct leaders it is amazing what can be achieved. Due to us having installed brand new carpets and only a few days prior to having applied a fresh coat of paint to the entire house it was of utmost importance to us that we kept walls scratch free and our carpets spot free and brand new. Due to this a team waited inside whilst others carted from your vans to the door.

Once all was in place in each room and we reassured them that the next day would be perfect to carry out the last of the work they left our new home "still smiling" and arrived back bright and early the following morning with the very same attitude. Unpacking took place, boxes were carted away, and numerous offers came our way regarding the fact that they were prepared to stay until every single item found its home. This of course was impossible but the offer brought home the fact that we were dealing with true professionals in every sense of the word.

The entire team was nothing short of phenomenal...

We thank Mario's Movers that not too many days after our move we have made it our home and we are extremely happy. We shall have no reservation in recommending Mario's Movers to all and anyone who will listen.

With kind regards and thanks,

Di and Craig Featherby

Dear Mario's Movers

The move to Greyton on Tuesday 26th October was a pleasure! The team was extremely efficient, quiet and they all worked as a team.

I have never experienced a move like this one and I have moved quite a few times in the past.

The team leader was outstanding. He was unbelievably professional and had his eye on everything. Nothing escaped him and his manner towards me was such that one does not find in the workplace these days. The most amazing thing was that he didn't just hang around and watch the others work which seems to be the norm,
he was right in there sweating with them.

I am most impressed with the whole service and have no hesitation in highly recommending your company to anyone who needs the stress and worry taken out of moving house.

Congratulations on having such fine staff members who do you credit.

Dearest Mario Movers Team

I need to drop this line to say a huge thank you to you for helping me with my move. Your team were absolutely fantastic and I will recommend your services to anyone moving home.

THANK YOU and you can be really proud of your team.

Kind regards

Dear Mario's Movers

We would like to thank you for all the effort and time your team from Mario's Movers put into the moving of our 40,000 Goodie Bags for the Pick n Pay Cape Argus Cycle Tour. Mario's Movers easy way of getting the whole thing together made for a very smooth delivery.

Your staff’s energy and enthusiasm was unwavering and they treated our precious cargo like gold, ensuring that each box was packed and unpacked very carefully, taping up boxes where necessary and working quickly and efficiently.

Ernest the driver/ manager manoeuvred your large truck with great skill and he was a huge hit with all the packers at Alta du Toit Nasorg, an adult aftercare facility for adults with intellectual disabilities. The packers’ faces lit up when they saw your large trucks at the entrance to the warehouse and so enjoyed working with your whole team.

We will strongly recommend your services and look forward to working with you again soon.

Kind regards
Monica Childs

Dear Mario's Movers

We would just like to thank the team who helped us with our move on 8 Jan. They were extremely friendly and efficient. They moved our furniture with the utmost care. I was worried about my piano, antiques and stone table top, but they took good care of them! When we got to the other side, I was not 100% sure where I wanted the furniture and some of the items they needed to move again - they did it with a smile.

Please thank them from us.

Kind regards
Lisel Keirsgieter



Thanks Mario! For your time and calls and understanding and thanks to the sales team too for your calls... IT'S GREATLY APPRECIATED!

Dear Mario's Movers

I write to express the gratitude of my daughter, Dr. Megan Jones and myself to you and your team at Mario’s Movers for the truly excellent service you provided us at such short notice last week.

Your personal attention to ensuring that that the move could take place at the end of the month and with hardly any notice is highly appreciated. It still boggles our minds that you were willing and able to fit us in the day after my first calling you. You are the kind of manager customers dream of, for whom no task is too big or difficult. And you remained courteous and positive throughout. As for the team who carried out the move, I have never in 22 moves met a more committed and professional team of men. Not only were they respectful of the goods they were moving but, even more impressively, they were incredibly respectful of each other. It was truly amazing not to hear one raised voice and to witness how the senior members of the team were constantly teaching and encouraging the others. All of this made for what is normally a very stressful exercise a really pleasant experience.

Thank you for providing a service which went beyond our expectations. There are not many companies or service providers in just about any field these days that go to the lengths to provide not just satisfactory but exceptional service.

We have told everyone we know about this experience partly because it is really a good news story but mostly because we know that Mario’s Movers will always be our preferred mover and want it to be that of everyone we know.

Thank you for restoring our faith in South African business and for making this move the very best we have experienced. Please thank your team for us. You and they do your company proud.

Yours sincerely,
Dr. Colin Jones

Hi Mario's Movers,

I would like to thank your team for their professionalism. I thought the entire move was conducted like a military operation. Well done. The leader Arnold was extremely organized and he led his team very well. All that was left for me to do was worry about the Springboks!!

Have a great weekend.
