I had heard horror stories about GTA moving companies so I was sure to do my homework. Rent-a-Son is Better Business Bureau certified and won best movers for two years running so that was very positive. When I called for a quote I worked with Erika who gave me an excellent impression of the company for the beginning. She and I worked together to discuss my moving needs without making me feel pressured. The quote she provided was exactly what I was charged -- no hidden fees. When my two movers showed up (early, I might add) they were so friendly and efficient. I moved to the Beaches in which staircases are very narrow so I was worried some of my furniture wouldn't make it up the stairs but with some fancy footwork they got everything up into my new apartment. My dad who was there to help with the move kept calling them "his sons" and may have even invited them to Easter dinner. I would recommend Rent-a-Sons to anyone! They made what could have been a very stressful and exhausting experience hassle-free.

Contacted company based on positive reviews on Homestars, was not disappointed, they were a pleasure to deal with right from the initial phone call. We used them to move some furniture and boxed items into storage for temporary period. The two guys that came were on time (even 10 minutes early), polite and best of all, quick and careful. They finished the job earlier than estimated and we do not have a single complaint. We definitely plan to use them again and have already recommended them to friends.

This is the second time we have used Rent-a-Son to move within the past 8 months. Both times we successfully moved a household of 5 within 8 hours, without a single incident, scratch, break, or missing item. We had a different crew of three guys each move, and both were fantastic. All of them were polite, professional, and enthusiastic. Throughout both moves there were various issues with getting stuff out, getting stuff in, extra work, etc., and all the guys were more than willing to work through and solve the problems. Unfortunately for us we will be moving again, but we will have one less worry in knowing that the actual moving day will be very easy as we will be depending on Rent-a-Son again.

Any advice to offer fellow homeowners facing a similar project?
We were very prepared, putting everything possible into boxes and disassembling things ahead of the movers' arrival. We also had all the boxes labelled with what was in them and which room they were to go to. The movers told us this helped tremendously and partially contributed to the ease of the move.

Extremely efficient, friendly and helpful!! The crew arrived right on time and were very professional. The job was done in half the time I would have expected, even when moving some very heavy and awkward items. Would definitely hire the team again for events or personal moving. Outstanding job!

We recently used Rent A Son to move half of our stuff out of a high rise condo and into a mini-storage facility and to take some things to goodwill. They handled the move very well and nothing was damaged. They were referred to us by a friend and we would recommend them as well. We've just booked them for our second move into our new place.

Efficient and on time. Work well done. With the early spring it was great to get the garden cleared and ready. Rent a son showed up on time and worked well.

The workmen arrived exactly on time and proceeded immediately to work. They moved every item we requested of them so quickly that they finished the work we thought would take at least 2 hours in less than one hour. We gave them additional work which meant we had much less to do.

With the spring like conditions, I thought I would get a jump start to some yard work I posted from the past summer. Knowing I wouldn't be able to do it all myself, I used this site to help find some help. I am glad I did!! I should have looked into Rent-a-Son alot earlier!! The job was done alot better than what I would have done!! Very, very friendly and polite - if only some of the major retailers out there would adopt the same level of customer service we'd be better off!! I will without hesitation use these guys again, and have already reommended them to my own friends and family. You won't be disappointed!!!

We hired Rent-a-son for our trade show move-in and move-out. They were very efficient and effective. The staff, from booking to the actual move, were very accommodating and flexible. We will definitely use them again.
