2-bedroom Apartment move

Got these guys through a recommendation from a friend and we're very happy to pass that recommendation on. The team (Julian, Jamie, Tyler) did the job under the estimated time (a big relief) and did it excellently. They managed to do it fast yet treated all our belongings with care so that there was no damage to anything. Also very nice guys. They turned a day that I was dreading into a pleasant experience. Recommend with no hesitation or reservation!

Rent A Son-Residential Move

I had initially spoken with Erika Jackman who was my Senior Moving Coordinator. She was extremely thorough and in a series of exchanged e-mails determined exactly what I would need to move my belongings to my new location.

I have a crew of 3 (Shaine / Kieran / Brian) and they arrived before my scheduled morning move time of 8:30am. They carefully placed runners along the floors at both locations to protect the floors and had ample blankets to protect fragile and general furniture. All of my items arrived in perfect condition without any damages and they even had suggested placement locations for some of my furniture.

I would highly recommend this company and crew for all of your moving needs and here are Erika's details

Move furniture from house to apartment

I had already moved into an apartment while selling my house. Once sold, I needed to move the staging furniture into the apartment and dump about ten bags of construction materials. The movers were careful, efficient, pleasant and on time. They were also very helpful with some extras - moving furniture within the apartment and putting a bed frame together.

Moving

Rent-A-Son was great. Amanda was very helpful and followed up numerous times. Alex and Nelson were on time (a few minutes early), very polite, helpful and didn't waste time. They were very professional. I highly recommend Rent-A-Son.

Trade show set-up/take down help

Amazing help! Alex and Yuseff were a phenomenal help!!! I could not have asked for more capable and thorough sons to help us on our trade booth. I only wish my sons (whenever that may be) will be as helpful and amazing as my rental sons were. Thank you,

Apartment Move

I moved on the 2nd coldest day of the year and my movers were still amazing and helpful! We had two different houses to move from, one with a small front door and large couch, but they were able to move everything without any problems and with humour as well. I would definitely recommend this company; they were great at communicating and excellent service.

Moving/Toronto to Montreal in the winter!!!

I moved from a condo in downtown Toronto. The elevator had been double booked. Rent-a son movers Julion and Jamie and Alex(who was in Toronto only) moved most of my belongings down the stairs in a tight access situation to save time. In Montreal which had been hit with a 38 cm. snow storm the day before Julion and Jamie unloaded and moved me in to an apartment with steep old wooden staircase which they shoveled and salted. It could've been a dangerous situation. They were amazing!!!

I am very happy with Rent-a-son movers and will use them again. (But hopefully not for a while!) Hassle-free professionals with accuracy in estimating moving costs. Other companies I checked out came in almost twice as high in costs. Great job!
