de-cluttering basement and garden clean-up

My "son" arrived on time and energetic, helpful, courteous and a delight. I like that he took the initiative in some tasks and didn't need constant instruction or supervision. The work we did was only a drop in the bucket compared to what needs to be accomplished, so I'm definitely re-hiring a son or 2 for a few more days very soon.

Landscaping

Cory came and tackeled our garden beds that were very overgrown with weeds, he worked fast and dilgently. He knew exactly what he was doing and even gave us tips on what to do to manage the weeds. Everything got accomplished that we needed and it was well worth it and will use Cory again.

Gardening

My husband was just getting out of hospital and I had a wedding fast approaching and company coming to stay with us.My daughter persuaded me to call and arrange for someone to help with the garden -weeding, general tidying, adding mulch, things that my husband would usually have already done by this time of year.Dylan arrived on time, took direction well and had pretty well all my jobs complete within the 4hrs I booked.

moving

I had a wonderful experience using Rent-a-Son to help with a recent move out from Toronto. Everything from start to finish was great. Booking was easy, and the woman I spoke with was friendly and knowledgeable. I had the help of 2 "sons" for 3 hours, really friendly, positive guys who worked really fast and great on their own as a team! They were both on time, which is important as many condo buildings have time limits for using the moving elevators and such. I was packing my apartment down into a portable storage unit, and they did a great job of strategically placing all the items to reduce shifting and movement; it was like a well placed jigsaw puzzle when I looked later. They helped me wrap items in plastic and had everything moved and packed in within 2 hours, again, a great thing especially because when moving, time is usually of the essence regarding prebooked pickups or elevator slots, especially at the end of the month. I would highly reccommend using Rent-a-Son again to anyone who needs an extra hand when moving. Inexpensive, so much easier then having to rely on friends, especially on a weekday, and took the stress right out of moving! Wonerful!

in house moving

After moving into our new house, my husband & sons wondered WHY I had to hire Rent-A -Son,when they could have done all the work....yes they could have..but over several months. In several hours the two "rented" sons moved boxes,rearranged furniture, moved a huge carpet from one room to another, cleaned our garage, unpacked boxes of books and generally made me feel that the huge weight of moving was at least. partially lifted. They were efficient, hardworking and very pleasant. I will hire them again.

Gardening clean up

I'm always happy with my Rent-a-Son experience. They are always courteous, punctual, pleasant, and very hard working. They take direction very well and do exactly what you ask. In the most recent case, one son did 8 hours of yard work for me ($200 + tax with their spring clean up special) and everything looked great. An overall excellent experience that I will repeat.

Yard work; spring clean up; washing and setting up patio furniture

I used Rent-a-Sons to clean up my garden and wash the patio furniture in preparation for Spring. I found all Sons that I dealt from Rent-a-son to be very professional and courteous. It was supposed to rain. I was pleasantly surprised when I called the day before and was able to speak to a 'live' Son who assured me that they would be monitoring the weather right up until the time of the appointment. The Son was very punctual, polite and efficient. He constantly asked for my feedback and quickly completed each task as asked. I was very very pleased, have already told many people about the experience and will definitely be using Rent-a-Son again in the near future. Good job and a great idea!!

General help

We've used Rent-a-Son several times for a variety of jobs around the house. The Rent-a-Son helpers have always been friendly, helpful and on-time.

We`ve been very impressed by the service, would use it again and would also highly recommend Rent-a-Son.

general cleanup and moving

We were faced with the daunting task of cleaning out my mother-in-law's rather large condo when she moved to a retirement home. Plus we were faced with a tight timeline. The staff at Rent-a-Son were a g-d send to us. They provided us with help very quickly. The staff were punctual, efficient, very hard working and very courteous. We couldn't have done it without their help. We can highly recommend them. Thanks for your help Rent-a-Son
