Unload two storage containers

In Hayden I got what I had hoped for. A strong and courteous worker who was both on time and pleasant. While he never made it an issue, I inquired what he earned an hour, and while $12 is not insignificant, it is, in my opinion, a sum below what he shld be earning given you charged me three times that much.

The only other I would add is staff handling telephone inquiries shld inform clients that it is likely to take less time to unload than it took to load... to some that's obvious... to overworked and harried clients like me it wasn't, and as a result I paid for two hours when I barely needed one.

Just an FYI

Cheers/d

gardening and weeding

I'm a senior citizen. This hot weather makes gardening impossible for me. But my garden looks great, thanks to your workers.

However you're refusing to accept my review because it's too short really irritates me. Now is it long enough?????????????

loading a moving truck

The "sons" assigned to assist with loading my moving truck were punctual, professional, respectful, good-humored, and communicative. They were energetic and ready to work. The truck I ordered was too big and they arranged things extremely well so that not a thing shifted along the way. I had an excellent experience with rent-a-son.

Weeding front garden and planting plus learning how to web a lawn chair

Rent-a-Son is fantastic, different young man this time and just as good. Weeded the front garden and planted a few plants as well as learning how to web a lawn chair. I am very pleased with the service from the corporate standpoint and extremely pleased with the 'sons' I have been sent. Universally helpful, polite and willing. Great service and I've told all my friends and even a few total strangers. I'm using them again and again! Regards,

Remove carpet; yard cleanup.

In four hours Grant from Rent-a-Son took up a carpet in my basement. Then he raked up part of the yard, and did some digging. He was courteous,efficient and hard-working. I've used Rent-a-Son in the past and have always been pleased.

Help with a move. 1 day.

We were moving my wife's grand parents out of their house to my mother in-laws home and needed some help at the last minute. I found rent-a-son on HomeStars, saw the great reviews so decided to take the plunge.

I am so glad we did. The two "sons" they provided were awesome. They dove right into the task at hand, needed very little supervision or direction, they were clean cut, polite, hard working. I can't say enough good things about these two young men and the company they work for.

Thanks Rent-a-Son!!! Thanks Nick and Max!!!

cleaning old dusty-cobwebby furniture, moving things and re-webbing old patio chairs and help with a street sale set up

I am incredibly pleased with Rent-a-Son especially with John Allan the young man who came to help me. We moved awkward and heavy furniture, he cleaned really yukky patio furniture and an old buffet that hadn't been touched in years and learned how to re-web old patio chairs and did a great job with everything. Then on the second call came to help me out setting up for a street sale when my friends backed out - even though he was already booked for a job that started later in the day. 06:30 am on a Saturday and he was on time and cheerful!!! I'm just now going to book the service again and I am really pleased about the furniture delivery service. Thank you Rent-a-Son and especially John Allan.
Regards,
Jan

Moving

We had two "sons" help us fill a pod with our very heavy furniture. They also moved some other heavy articles to a storage space. They had excellent attitudes, worked hard and were polite. We highly recommend them and will definitely use them to unload the pod!

Moving furniture, boxes

As a professional organizer, I often need additional assistance carrying heavy boxes and furniture. My Rent A Sons arrived on the job promptly, were polite, efficient, capable, and friendly. My clients were extremely impressed, and I would definitely use them again. Paula Gardner www.asavvysolution.ca

labour for moving household goods to a storage unit (1 "son" for 2 hours)

A recent car accident made it impossible for me to help my husband move some possessions to a storage unit. I rented a van but forgot to book with Rent-a-Son. In a panic, I phoned Stephanie in the office at 8:30 am the day of my move and she managed to find a "son" willing to show up at 11:00 am. Everything went so smoothly, I can't say enough good things about this company and its employees.
