Took Care of Everything Including Last-minute Issues
“We are pleased to provide this letter of recommendation without reservation.
When we were planning our recent move from Front Street to Adelaide Street, we asked our real estate agent to recommend a moving consultant. He recommended Michael at DJ McGauley as the best firm to help manage our move.
Historically, we had managed the various vendors and tasks ourselves but this time we needed to move and reconfigure interconnected workstations as well as adhere to various COVID protocols. Michael assured us he would take care of everything and gave us an estimate for the move.
As with every move, things came up that were not expected, out of scope and challenging to solve. Michael and his team took care of everything including all the last-minute issues without batting an eye. For example, he was able to arrange to have the dry wall patched (as required in our lease) at the old office on very short notice.
In the end, the move and set-up went as planned and the final bill was as estimated. We would certainly work with DJ McGauley again.”
“Stone is entering our third decade as a client of D.J. McGauley. Over the years they have facilitated three full office moves, managed several renovation projects including sourcing and installation of furniture, and provided offsite storage solutions. For our last relocation in December 2020, Mike and his team of experts really pulled through on a tight timeline and under the challenging circumstances of moving in a pandemic environment. Always ready to jump in and help make sense of any situation, they have become true partners to our business and we absolutely recommend them for any project, big or small.”
“We had the pleasure of meeting Mike and his colleagues in November.
We required a storage and moving plan for a quick exit from our prior premises and Mike came through for us. The plan he prepared for us, and the packaging and storage materials provided, allowed for a painless move.
We appreciate the care and diligence shown by Mike and his team to support our moves out of our old location and into our new space.
A big thank you to Mike and his colleagues at DJ McGauley & Associates for their support and professionalism in arranging our move.
Sincerely, Richard Reid and Larry Klar, Partners, Argosy Partners Ltd.

Honest with us throughout Genuinely Felt They Cared About Our Peace of Mind
“Our firm recently moved to a new premises, and we worked with D.J. McGauley and Associates Inc. to manage the logistics of our move. Well in advance, Mike was involved in many aspects of the move. He was very helpful and instructive in developing the layout of our new office space, and provided us with practical ideas, considering our needs.
Our office had been at the same location for thirty years, and we were initially very wary of the burden that an office move would entail. Mike and his team alleviated all of our worries. We had many questions and specific requests throughout the process, and all were answered very promptly and thoroughly. On the day of the move itself, Mike’s team took the initiative to make sure our furniture and equipment were swiftly and carefully transported to the new site. The disruption to our actual operations was minimal.
Two months into our move, and we could not be more satisfied with our new space. Mike followed up with us a number of times to ensure that the details of our office set up were up to our standards and functioning effectively. We also ordered a few other workstations after our move, and Mike’s team assisted us with rearranging some of our existing furniture to accommodate.
D.J. McGauley and Associates were honest with us throughout, and we genuinely felt that they cared about our peace of mind. We could not have asked for a better experience during an otherwise typically stressful time. Thanks again to Mike and his team.
This letter is regarding the professional and exceptional renovation experience we received from DJ McGauley and Associates for our brand-new Rehab and Fitness Clinic.
DJ McGauley and Associates helped with every aspect of the construction project from beginning to end. This being my first venture in opening a business, Mike and his team explained every step and was open about everything, especially the finances. DJ McGauley and Associates took care of the initial consultation, interior design, obtaining necessary approvals and permits, implementing our computer system, construction management, furniture sourcing and the project management. We leaned on them to help us determine correct dimensions and interior design choices of each room as it was hard for us to see the end product. They were so patient and accommodating whenever we wanted to discuss our worries again. It all turned out perfectly and we are so glad to have their guidance. Without them we would have made more than a few wrong decisions. The years of experience really showed during this project. It all turned out to be exactly what we had hoped for. There was a tight timeline from getting the permits to opening day and they got it completed. The team proved to be reliable and diligent throughout the construction.
Mike and his team found creative solutions building a highly professional clinic on a reasonable budget. We greatly appreciated the personal involvement, availability and attention the field and office staff dedicated to the project.
I have no hesitation recommending DJ McGauley and Associates for commercial renovations and office organizational services.
