We will review your needs meticulously. We are not one of those companies that send out quotes highlighting the minimum amount owing and then disguising it as a true estimate. We are forthright in what we think each move will cost.

Our experienced and personable moving coordinators spend time speaking with each prospective customer, reviewing in detail his or her list of possessions. We document the inventory carefully, gauge its volume and weight, assess the destination property’s configuration and location, and calculate an estimated price, based on the expected number of man hours needed to perform the job.

We are good at this. In aggregate, our estimates equal 101% of our booked revenue. This means that not only are we very accurate, we actually tend to come in slightly below guidance.

We obviously cannot claim that this is always the case. Metropolitan Toronto has unpredictable traffic, complicated architecture, and buildings with unusual elevator and loading set-ups, but we will always do our level best to do right by the customer.


We hire for cultural fit, and the first criterion that we examine is honesty. One exercise we carry out is verifying that applicants have no criminal records.

Periodically, a sad story crops up in our industry about how a family is taken advantage of, and all moving companies become exposed to the resulting damaged reputations.

Rent-a-Son takes its responsibility toward clients very seriously. Sending crews into people’s homes and handling their personal goods is something our company is answerable for, so we must do everything we can to give you confidence in our people.

Background checks are an additional measure we have adopted to learn about what is not necessarily disclosed in someone’s job application. You can rest assured that a Rent-a-Son crew is an honest crew.


Once movers are hired, they receive both classroom and practical instruction before being staffed with seasoned colleagues. Our transparent approach with customers applies equally to personnel through a highly detailed mastery matrix that lays out in great detail the specific skills required for organizational advancement.

We want our people to develop their craft and earnings potential, and we train and supervise them in a way to help them grow.


All of our staff are insured by the Workplace Safety Insurance Board [WSIB]. You may have peace of mind that by engaging Rent-a-Son, as a hiring party you will be complying with Ontario’s labour laws and will not be committing an offence under the Workplace Safety Insurance Act.


We play by the rules. We never pay staff under the table. All required income tax as well as Canada Pension Plan and Employment Insurance contributions are remitted to the Canada Revenue Agency. You can be certain that when dealing with Rent-a-Son, you are dealing with a business that operates as a responsible, tax-paying citizen


The Better Business Bureau [BBB] has assigned an A+ rating to Rent-a-Son.

The BBB carries out comprehensive evaluations of businesses before qualifying them, accounting for complaints, time in business, transparency of marketplace conduct, adherence to licensing requirements, record of government actions, and advertising claims.

As our website illustrates, numerous third parties have identified us as among the best movers in the city, be it for short haul or long distance.


We have more published reviews than any moving company in Toronto, and we score highly and consistently, year in and year out. Frequent citations include professional, respectful, careful, courteous, quick, reliable, and efficient, among many others. We are regularly cited as one of the city’s best movers, reflecting a deep commitment to customer service.

Our estimates are so accurate that they fall within 1% of the actual invoice, on average!

In order to provide you with a detailed and accurate estimate for our services, we perform a comprehensive assessment of your needs prior to your moving day. We will work together to collect inventory of the items you need moved using either an online form or a virtual survey of your home. While we do require you to complete these simple steps ahead of your moving day, it will ensure that we have a realistic and uncomplicated plan that you are happy with. As well, these steps will guarantee we have everything set up in the best possible way to avoid any surprises on moving day — both for you and your crew.

We believe that every great move starts with a great team!

We have an entire HR team dedicated to finding the best people, heavily screening and background checking all prospective employees. Rent-a-Son then takes things a step further by constantly training and upgrading the skills of all movers in the field through our own proprietary training program. Our foremen assume leadership roles to effectively mentor newer employees and help them to be the best in the business. All of our crews are professional and friendly and will make moving day an easy and great and stress-free experience for you!

My compliments to Erika and the team at Rent A Son for quick and consistent response and follow up. I have used other companies in the past but now have all our move related work booked directly with them as we have had positive feed back from our clients.

Today was my second move this month as I am rightsizing 2 households. For the second move I chose a new company and I am so happy I did. My move was out of a condo to a house and also to a storage facility. Lots of moving parts and the team of Theodore and Adrien handled it all with ease. They were a pleasure to work with on site and Rob Nunn was wonderful to deal with through the planning process. Thanks for a great move. I will be recommending Rent A Son to everyone.

Fast response, flexible, accommodating and very professional. I had Kashane and Denys as my movers for the day and they were fast and efficient, made my long distance province move from Ontario to Quebec completely stress free. They also disassembled, packed the furniture and brought all the supplies I was missing. Might cost a bit more than others but worth every penny. Just book them.

We had a great moving experience with Rob and Fabio and the rest of the team at Rent-A-Son! Made our move that much easier and less stressful. Our moving team were excellent, friendly and incredibly efficient.

Very happy with the internal move that Kashane and Reynolds handled for us today. Even with a difficult couch and stairway combination they tried every approach and in the end I felt they had made the best of the situation. And they managed to stay within the time allotted for the move. I could not have asked for more. Great attitudes and very professional. I hope I can get these guys again when the time comes to put things back after our renovations are done.

I would highly recommend Rent-a-Son for your moving needs. Rob was very helpful during the booking process and make it seamless to book their service. Our movers, Theo and Adrian, were great to work with as well. They were punctual, efficient, and took great care in making sure our move was worry free. They go the extra mile to make sure your furniture does not get damaged during the move and leave your house neat and tidy after the move as well. They even disassembled and re-assembled our beds. Thank you Rent-a-Son for the wonderful service and we will definitely use you again in the future!
