It’s National Trucking Week here in Canada. Time to publicly recognize the outstanding efforts of our trucking team – the hardest working guys in the biz.

Our drivers and drivers helpers are truly the unsung heroes of Furniture Bank. They spend their days picking up donated furniture and delivering it to our clients day in and day out. Let us tell you, it’s no easy job.

Each truck team has been working together for quite some time. A true testament of their dedication to Furniture Bank’s mission of empowering lives in furnished homes.

We’re proud to finally introduce them to you on our blog. If you’ve donated furniture to us before, you may recognize a familiar face or two.

What a Team! Castel & Javil have been with our Furniture Bank Family for almost 8 years combined. Their days consist of travelling around the GTA picking up Furniture from our lovely donors, and always doing so with a smile on their face. See Castel & Javil in action as we followed the journey of a donated sofa they picked up.

The guys who came to my house were amazing very polite and professional, they were very careful in taking the furniture out.” -Furniture Donor

Mirosalv (Miro) has been with Furniture Bank for almost 10 years and is our longest serving truck driver. After immigrating to Canada from the former Soviet Union in the late 80′s, Miro found his calling as Furniture Bank’s first permanent full-time truck driver in 2004. He’s never shy to tell you a joke and he sure knows how to move furniture. Check out Miro’s moving skills as we spent a day on the road with him.

Stephen has been with us now for almost 2 years and began his Furniture Bank journey as a participant of our Leg Up program.

Both Miroslav and Stephen were very careful as to not scratch both the articles or the walls.  The men finished in a timely fashion and were very careful and respectful, Excellent Service.” – Furniture Donor

These two sweethearts deliver furniture items to all of our clients we help. They are very dedicated to our cause and have been with us for almost 8 years combined. Serge and Jean are always willing to go the extra mile (no pun intended) to get the furniture items our clients selected directly into their homes in a timely and professional manner.

Raymond has been with our Furniture Bank Family now for 4 years. He is very dedicated and enjoys helping our donors by removing their gently used furniture pieces and bringing them back to our warehouse to find them a new home.

“At the precise time expected two courteous and capable gentlemen removed all of my items very professional. The entire process was pain free and I couldn’t be happier BRAVO Furniture Bank!” – Furniture Donor
