Terry attended Gibson Elementary then Scott Park High, where many life-long friendships were made. After high school it was on to Mohawk College for an Electrical Engineering Degree before graduating with a B.A. Economics at Montreal’s Concordia University.
Starting Pro Moves
Upon graduating with an B.A. in Economics in 1985, Terry played professional basketball for the Osnabrück Giants in Germany’s first division. An torn ACL ended his career in his first season and wound up in Toronto to help grow Move-it-Now; a moving business started by his brother Walter.
Move-it-Now started off doing small moves and deliveries but within a couple of years Walter and Terry bought more trucks, expanded the crew and were doing bigger moves for law firms, banks, YMCA’s and a wide variety of other businesses in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Areas.
In 1987, the brothers decided to split Move-it-Now into two separate entities in order to serve Toronto and Hamilton more effectively. Walter’s Move-it-Now took care of the area around Mississauga and Toronto, while Terry rebranded Move-it-Now into Pro Moves which focused on The Greater Hamilton Area.
At first Pro Moves was doing mostly home moving around the Hamilton area, then quickly transitioned to business moving for medical and professional offices, hospitals and educational institutions. Pro Moves had developed a solid reputation for its professionalism and ability to over-deliver and began to market itself as The Moving Professionals® (themovingprofessionals.com).
By the mid-ninties Pro Moves aquired contracts with The City of Hamilton, all of Hamilton’s Hospitals and McMaster University and they are still their valued clients today.
Pro Moves has completed thousands of moves over the past 35 years with only one insurance claim.
