Frequently Asked Questions

What should you not do when moving?

Things you should not do when moving include:

● Keeping everything and not throwing away unnecessary items
● Being disorganized
● Getting in the way of movers
● Not giving yourself enough time to pack

When you work with an experienced professional moving company, they can explain their process so that you will feel confident that on the day of your move, things will go smoothly.

Is there a checklist for moving?

Yes. To make the process go smoothly, we can provide you with a checklist of everything you need to do before you move and in what time frame it should be done.

Do movers put furniture in rooms?

Yes. As a full-service moving company, our movers will move your furniture into any room you request. It is a good idea to check out your new residence beforehand and have an idea of where you want things.

When should you start packing before you move?

It depends on how much you have to pack. However, it is a good rule of thumb to start packing at least two weeks before the move, so you will have enough time. If you have a lot of items, you may need to start even earlier than that or request packing services, so that the move can be done in a timely fashion.

How do you pack items to move efficiently?

Packing things in boxes that are not overloaded and making sure delicate items are wrapped and secure will speed up the process. You should also throw away items you don’t need, and do a general cleanup of your entire house before making an inventory of everything that needs to go.

Is it better to move with boxes or bags?

Bags can be convenient because they often have handles and are easy to carry. Boxes work well for square items, such as books, games, and electronics, but caution must be taken not to overload them. Certain items will be jostled around too much in bags and could damage other items. This is where working with professional packers can help.

How much should I tip house movers?

A good rule of thumb for half a day of work is 20 dollars per mover and 40 dollars for a full day or around 15%-20% of the total cost of the move.

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

It will depend on how much needs to be packed, but you can rest assured that there is no wasted time working with packers who work full-time packing houses. They know the best way to pack efficiently and quickly, without damaging anything in the process.

What is the average residential moving cost in Toronto?

It depends on how much needs to be packed and moved, and how far the trucks have to drive. To get an estimate, send us a message, and we will be happy to let you know how much your move is expected to cost.

Does Rent-a-Son only provide local moving or are long-distance moving services available as well?

Although local is the core of our business, we also provide commercial moves, long-distance moves, piano and pool table moves, packing and unpacking as well as moving supplies. If you have any kind of moving need, we can do it for you!

Can I leave items inside my furniture?

Whether you require a home relocation or an office move, we strongly recommend emptying any contents from your furniture pieces prior to moving day. Furniture is not designed to be moved with items inside and this can cause unnecessary stress on the item. To minimize the risk for damage or misplacement, please remove any loose items from your furniture pieces prior to moving day.

What if my crew gets lost on move day?

All of our trucks are tracked by the latest GPS technology which our team of dispatchers are closely monitoring at all times. If the crew does take a wrong turn, we will be in contact with them right away to guide them back to the direct route and to your location as soon as possible.

Do you have any customer reviews online?

Yes! We are the best moving company in Toronto and have the moving reviews to prove it. Our customers love our movers and show their love by making us one of the top-rated moving and storage companies in the city.

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!
