What your friends Say
The team knew where to park and the layout of both buildings – again good research. And although I was not present for the off loading it went smoothly as well. All of the team showed expertise and an understanding of the complexities of dealing with elderly people and their families.
We would definitely recommend them!
This in my opinion is service the way it’s supposed to be. I love you all thank you so so much
I would definitely recommend Darling Solutions for your moving needs.
Kelly's team displayed the same mindfulness, caring and compassion on the job as she did during the initial consult. We are grateful to your company for helping us through this. Thank you
I highly recommend Darling Solutions to anyone.
Again, we could not have done it without them! From decluttering and packing our condo to moving and setting us up in our new home, every member of the team was hardworking, helpful, warm and extremely competent. Their attention to detail in setting up our new place was remarkable. Honourable mention to the whole team: Kelly, Shawn, Ian, Phyllis, Barb M., Barb Y. Jack, Susan, Glen and Paul. Barb M., our team leader, and Ruth, in the office, were particularly good at calming a nervous client.
We recommend Darling Solutions without reservation. We can’t thank them enough.
Marj and Weldon
Adding COVID into the mix it was almost paralysing to think about. After a recommendation to Contact Darling most of that fear went away.
Professional, competent and most importantly Caring.
They made this move so smooth for my wife and her parents.
On moving day they left their old home and at the end of the day arrived in a new home with all their belongings unpacked and arranged. Completely stress and back pain free. The next day Darling took care of removing items targeted for donation and all remaining items for waste.
I cannot recommend this service enough.
Thank you so much.
Frankly thank-you does not even cover it. Your team, led by Julie, was absolutely incredible from the first moment we met down to the beautiful new plant for my mom and our goodbyes at the door.
They were so organized, thoughtful, friendly and polite. It was a sincere pleasure to work with all of them. I enjoyed the experience so much I am almost sad that the move is finished but happy that we will meet again when my parents are ready to hang their many pictures.
Again, I am in awe and am telling anyone with ears about Darling Solutions so they will hopefully in turn tell their friends and family.
Very best regards and please send our thanks once again to your team.
All of our services — Moving Services, Downsizing & Transitioning, Decluttering and Organizing, Preparing for Market, and Estate Services — are performed by our own professional team.
We believe that your team needs to be carefully trained to provide the right experience and support. Additionally, each member of our team has provided us with a Police Records Check to offer further peace of mind when inviting us into your home.
While we do refer outside professionals as requested, such as auctioneers and realtors, we are very proud to say that your services are provided by our own specialized and handpicked team!
Our entire team takes great pride in the services we provide, and we are committed to the best possible client experience.
Darling Solutions is unique in that 95% of our business comes from word-of-mouth referrals. We have grown exponentially over the last ten years because of our commitment to providing the best possible service, and our clients recognize and appreciate us for that! Darling Solutions is the best senior moving company in Ottawa.
We strive to make any moving or downsizing experience as stress-free and positive as possible, while honoring the great emotional weight that comes with these lifestyle changes.

We will never sell you a service that you don’t need, nor will we pressure you into agreeing to more work than necessary.
Leave It All To Us
Many seniors have family living outside the city, who cannot be physically present to help. We respect that it isn’t always possible to be here when your parents need assistance, and we will support both you and your parents to the best of our ability. Let us handle the arrangements from A to Z, and rest easy with the knowledge that our experienced team will ensure a smooth transition. Our office can send you email updates of the process, as well as pictures of your loved one’s new home once services are complete! We can also arrange a storage locker, or have a shipment sent out to you if there are any special treasures that you want to keep.
