I received a shipment from Toronto to Dublin, Ireland. Throughout the process Leon was incredibly professional and responsive. I would encourage anyone to choose this company for their shipping needs. Thank you Leon.

We recently received a Container from The Netherlands to Quebec City and without Leon Parent we wouldn't have managed. Leon was 'there' for us, from pre- arrival of goods until delivery, pro-active; keeping us well-informed throughout the different steps, reducing inevitable stress and always instantly reachable, for us and customs agents! In today's more impersonal world, it was so reassuring to have Leon at the other end of the telephone or email and we can't thank him enough for everything he facilitated for us. I know that other customers would be equally as satisfied as we have been. Mega, mega thanks Leon! You are exceptional! Exceptional quality!
I moved from Canada to France with FFFC through air freight and I do not regret my choice. The price was really fair (and also much lower than other compagnies I sent an estimate to) and my shipping was handled very professionally. Leon Jr was very reactive to emails and phone calls. Overall a very good experience and I highly recommend their services.
Had some personal items shipped overseas.
Price was fair and regular updates were provided.
Leon was also very responsive to any emails.
Zero complaints, highly recommend!
Leon is incredible. I have now used his services for multiple overseas shipments and his support is worth every penny. I used his company specifically because of all the great customer service reviews as I needed someone who can communicate well and take care of things. I don't anticipate ever using another FF.
I have to give credit where credit is due. Fast Freight Forwarding, definitely gets my five star rating. I currently reside in the United States, (California) I had a valuable package that was pretty much stuck in Canada. Not having anyone that I know in Canada, family, or friends. I reached out to Fast Freight Forwarding. The employee that I spoke with, assured me that they could help to get my package shipped to me. I gave them the address where the package was, and they immediately set into motion, retaining the proper paper work, and personally drove out to the location of my "fairly large" parcel, picked it up, and drove it back to their facility where they could label it correctly, and get it shipped out to me in the U.S. I was really worried about how I was going to get my package to me. I'm so glad I called Fast Freight Forwarding. They handled everything fast and efficiently. Just as if I had a friend or family member there in Canada doing it for me. ( And that speaks volumes) Fast Freight Forwarding has employees that are professional, and care about your parcel. (It's just good business) Their rates were very reasonable, and my parcel arrived on the date the tracking said with no problems. You can trust Fast Freight Forwarding. (Five stars all the way!) Thanks again F.F.F Sincerely, Michael Bird.
I had a great experience working with Leon on an international relocation. It was a hassle-free experience with a door to door service using air freight. Everything was handled through email. I had quick and clear communication from Leon. Over-all I would highly recommend his service!
I have used FFF multiple times in the past year and they are very professional, efficient and they deliver on what they promise. Leon is the very best and will patiently walk you through the details and "how to" ship. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them, and I have!
I do business between China and Canada and was looking for a Freight Forwarder in Toronto to handle my incoming freight shipments. I had previously contacted other Freight Forwarders who did not even try to understand my business needs. Leon went above and beyond to communicate with me about the process and work out the details around my specific requirements. His quote was very competitive and his delivery was fast. I will be happy to do business with him again.
I really needed to save a little bit of money cause of Covid and relocating.
After spending many hours trying to pick a company that would be professional and fair with the estimate, I decided for FFFC. Leon was the best part of this experience! He was always available to answer my questions and reassuring me when I was worried about something . In Italy there wasn’t the same expertise showed from Leon in Canada unfortunately, but I got my stuff in one piece! I spent a lot of time over the phone once my shipment left Canada, and I have prepared many documents by myself and called the Consulate to don’t pay a fee on the IVA. No one told me about that from the Italian office, I had to figure it out.
So, If you are looking to don’t break your wallet this is the perfect solution, but if you are the person that needs all the documents to be taken care, not sure... I am good with that stuff but it is a lot of stress. Again Leon amazing during all the process!
Leon was so amazing. The process was very quick and professional. The quote provided was the most competitive out of all other quotes and they were able to deliver to a destination that most companies were unable to forward shipment to. Leon walked you through the process and was so precise and knowledgeable that the shipment was screened, shipped and delivered without a single hitch within the time frame promised. Would definitely use them again and would highly recommend this company.
I used FFFC to ship my household (~20 boxes of differing sizes, no bulky items) from Canada to Austria. Communication with Leon was quick and easy, and he was always fast to respond. Everything worked very smooth. The boxes arrived after ~5 weeks in good condition. I can highly recommend FFFC and would use it again. Thanks Leon!
Very responsive and helpful. The bumps were handled well as well.
I recently used this company for my relocation from Toronto to Liverpool, UK. Not only was Leon always available (and very quick) to answer my many questions both on the phone and via email, but he also asjusted the quote according to my changing needs and provided all the necessary information for me to be able to evaluate the various options I had and their cost. FFFC took care of everything for me, explaining to me in detail what I neded to do on my side, and kept me informed about everything. My boxes arrived in Liverpool even sooner that I expected (air freight), and overall I am really stasfied with the service provided. I would highly recommend this company for any moving, whether local or international.

Leon and team at FFFC fabulous in responding to my inquiries, giving a very reasonable quote, receiving, storing and finally sending them to me in Mexico from Toronto. They made sure my boxes were safely wrapped and labeled. Leon offered solutions as my situation evolved in Mexico and I was able to take possession. I would highly recommend them for any move locally or internationally....best value and highly trustworthy.
Very professional, friendly and efficient service
Big thanks to Leon and FFFC - we had a relatively small job - moving bikes and snowboards from Toronto to France, and FFFC was super helpful.
Leon's customer service should be commended, while I as in the middle of my moving chaos, he reminded me that I will soon be enjoying some rosé in the Cote d'Azur. Just what I needed after standing in endless bureaucratic line-ups.
We recently used Fast Freight to ship our belongings from Toronto to Sydney, Australia. In spite of our ever-changing demands, Paul hung in and worked with us to ensure our cargo was looked after and cleared through to its destination. Paul took care of all the details so we didn’t have to, and clearing customs in Sydney was a breeze. Thanks to Paul and Leon for making this move so much easier.
This company works through quality employees; very proffesional from day one until I received the container. There never were times when I called and they did not come back with prompt solution, clarifications. Leon is a very knowledgeable and reliable person, extremely helpful, accomodating... he gives you the feeling (and right so) that your belongings are in right, carrying hands. We were impressed, when opened the container at arrival, how well and carefull our belongings were packed.
I highly recommend Fast Freight Forward for shipping overseas your household items or merchandise. A very good, no stress experience. Leon, thanks for being part of our journey!
Literally cannot thank Fast Freight and Leon enough. They provided me with superior service and excellent communication throughout the transportation of my Late Fathers personal belongings from Canada to the UK. Highly professional and highly recommend. Thanks again Leon, great work!
My employer has been working with Fast Freight Forwarding (FFF) for more than 5 years. If we need a shipment picked up from anywhere in the world, or shipped from Canada to anywhere in the world, we consistently use FFF for their expertise and customer service. I saw the previous comment, and feel this must be a very unfortunate situation and a person unfamiliar with shipping. There are charges which can appear which are unrelated to the shipping company, which the shipper is responsible for, these are always indicated as being excluded. Some of these charges have to do with port fees, and customs inspections. The shipper is always responsible for their shipment. If customs wants to sequester it, x-ray it and unpack it - they will. And as the shipper you will get a bill for it too, and a charge for repacking it for you. Unfortunate, yes. Shipping company's fault - no.
A passport is supposed to travel with a person, not in a mess of packages. see below.
- Have an import document - send it by courier so it can be tracked, don't dump it in your entire shipment.
- Boxes damaged? - again you packed it. Keep in mind it will go through several check points, port, customs, various handling.
- Weight and dimensions different? - Weight and dimensions are translated to volumetric dimensions depending on shipping mode. or are subject to minimum charges depended on a variety of factors.
- Got a port charge you didn't authorize, well, that's the business. A variety of vendors are strung together to bring us what we need when we need it. Sometimes our ports charge us when they are backlogged and sitting in their yard. You nor I can do anything about it. Your shipper didn't charge you that - he is passing on a cost he had to pay on your behalf.
Again, I feel bad for you. Better luck next time. This is one unfair comment I felt compelled to rectify.
