Process

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do your movers help unpack?

Yes, they can. Our goal is to cover everything involved in moving, which includes unpacking and getting you set up in your new residence (for an additional fee).

What packing services do you offer?

We offer both packing and unpacking services. This includes bringing the materials necessary to get the job done, and packing your items in a way that ensures there are no accidents during the move.

With unpacking, our team will either unpack your boxes and put them on the nearest countertop, or you can use our put-away service where our skilled workers arrange your items according to your instructions.

How long does it take packers to pack all items in a house?

This depends on how much there is to pack. Our team of movers are trained to be fast and efficient and do this work day in, day out. You can count on them to do the job properly.

How do you unpack and organize after a move?

This is up to you. You can do it yourself, or you can hire us to not only move everything in for you, but to put it where you want. This saves you the trouble of figuring out where you want your belongings when you first move in.

How much does unpacking and packing cost?

It depends on how much there is to pack and unpack. We charge by the hour and offer competitive pricing with any other moving company in the area. And we always guarantee satisfaction.

How do you pack and unpack when moving?

It is entirely up to you. Our team has a process they use that works best for them, but there is no right or wrong way. We can offer you tips on how to organize your move. It is best to pack and label all your boxes by room and make sure the boxes aren’t too heavy.

How will my mirrors and pictures be protected when moving?

We make sure that the corners are covered in Styrofoam, and we wrap pictures and mirrors in soft materials (usually sound blankets) to ensure there is no damage.

How should I prepare my lawn mower and gas-powered equipment for the move?

All you have to do is empty them of gas and leave the rest to use. We have the materials necessary to ensure they can be moved safely without disrupting any of your belongings during the move.

Can I do some of my own packing?

Yes, if you wish to. However, the boxes you pack yourself are not insured by our company in the event of any damages. It might be a better idea to leave the work to the professionals, but it is up to you how you want to pack.

Does Rent-a-Son only offer packing or unpacking for residential moving?

No! Packing and unpacking can be complete for residential moves as well as office moves. We have the supplies and equipment to easily and efficiently pack all of your office files, small electronics, whiteboards, computer accessories, and more.

Can I hire you just for packing or unpacking and not for moving?

By all means! Even if you do not need our professional movers, we are happy to provide these other services in Toronto and the surrounding area 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.

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!
