Frequently Asked Questions

There are a few essential things you’ll need before starting your packing:

  • Cardboard boxes
  • Bubble wrap
  • Permanent marker
  • Coloured post-it notes (or label maker)
  • Packing tape

Consider getting specialized packing boxes, too, such as for fragile items; they can save you a lot of time packing!

Try and keep moving boxes to a maximum of around 15 kilograms (or about 30 pounds). Any more than that and you risk the bottom giving way, the handles breaking, or a back injury!

A good rule of thumb is to pack heavy items, like books, at the bottom and fill the remaining space with lighter items, such as cushions.

There are a few things you should avoid packing in boxes (and your movers may ask you to take them out):

  • Flammable items, such as gasoline and kerosene
  • Chemicals and corrosives
  • Perishables, such as produce and cooked foods
  • Plants
  • Pets (!)

Fragile items, too, should be packed in boxes specially designed for them.

No, you don’t have to pack everything in boxes for the move. That said, boxes are usually the most efficient way to pack items.

Some things that we move without boxes are:

  • Plants
  • Oversized items
  • Clothes
  • Furniture

If you can’t find the right box for something special, ask us about our specialized packing boxes.

Moving boxes serve two basic purposes: organization and protection.

Boxes are a great way to organize items, especially the fussy little things that don’t seem to fit anywhere.

Moving boxes protect your belongings from damage during transport, though you should have taken care to pack carefully, too.

Moving supplies can cost anywhere from $100 for a studio apartment to over $700 for 4-bedroom houses and larger. This will include moving boxes, packing tape, newsprint for packing, and bubble wrap.

You may also want to invest in a permanent marker or a label maker to make organizing the move easier.

A small move, such as for a 1-bedroom condo in Toronto, needs around 25 boxes. A 4-bedroom house can easily take over 110 boxes. If you have children or lots of items, expect that number to shoot up.

Here’s an easy way to save money on moving supplies: fill out our online inventory to find out how many boxes you may need and save yourself from paying retail prices for moving supplies.

Oh, definitely boxes! Boxes are easy to stack, easy to transport on a dolly, and easy to pack on trucks. They allow our movers to make the most efficient use of truck space and protect your belongings during transport.

Using bags for things like clothes is fine, but you’re much better off getting moving boxes.

Good news! Recyclable, reusable cardboard moving boxes start at $3.00. However, the cost of moving boxes is dependent on its size, shape, and overall purpose.

For example, specialized boxes, such as those for televisions or wardrobes, can range from $22.95 to $34.95. Tell us about your move, so we can provide tailored recommendations for moving materials.

That really depends on what you’re moving, but we recommend using cardboard moving boxes. They are reusable, recyclable, and incredibly cost-effective. You can collapse them flat, too, meaning storage is easier.

Plastic boxes can seem attractive, but they cost a lot more and can be a chore to store. This is why they end up in the landfill more often than not!

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!
