Office Move

Robert and Direye showed up to site on time and were extremely efficient. They were able to move everything we needed quickly and with care. Even with a couple of laat minute changes to the original plan, they did a great job.

Best Moving Company Experience.

Best moving company experience ever. Period.

Hired Rent-A-Son after reading dozens of reviews of Toronto moving companies. The various on-line Rent-A Son reviews seemed far and away the most positive so we decided to go with them. Best decision we made during the entire moving process.

They have a smart estimating system on their website that's easy to navigate and...lo and behold, they actually acknowledge, in writing, that it's just an estimate - not a fixed quote - and the final costs will be determined based on the actual time your move takes. Other companies will hold you to the original high estimate - often with extra "hidden" charges regardless of what actually happens on move day.

Really appreciated this "estimate only" system of theirs because, let's face it, it's difficult to quantify every object that needs to be moved before you're even finished packing it up. We got our quote - seemed like a competitive and fair hourly pricing system based on what we had seen elsewhere - (check their website) - so we hired Rent-A Son.

The rest is simple - they arrived on time with a proper moving truck equipped with professional moving tools. Our three "sons" were Julian, Tyler and Abdullah. We did one walk through of the house and the garage and pointed out what was going and what wasn't. Never had to tell them again.

They got to work and never stopped except for one short well-earned break. They worked like a practiced and well-oiled team. They were pleasant and friendly throughout and nothing was too much trouble. We were also really impressed with their moving methods and even noted the way they lifted loads in a professional and safe way (for them).

There were a couple of items that have significant sentimental value and the next time we saw those items being moved, they were covered in blankets and shrink wrapped. Not one spec of damage.

These guys worked fast and hard the entire time. Our move was done in just over 4 hours - less than the estimate. And here's the best part - since it took less time - we were actually charged LESS than the estimate.

What's left to say? - without a doubt, the absolute best moving company experience in a lifetime of moves. Forget the rest, hire Rent- A- Son. We definitely will.

highly recommended!

Great service from the beginning with Customer Service Coordinator Erika, to the end. Moving team George, Direye and Arlie were efficient, thoughtful and simply good fun to be around. Moving can be so stressful and they made it a really pleasant experience. They were within the estimate with no overage. The estimate that I was given was also the most competitive compared to other moving companies. I would highly recommend Rent-a-Son for any size move.

Excellent stress free moving experience

I can’t say enough good things about this company!
Careful, clean, efficient, professional, courteous, reliable, and reasonably priced.
I was pleasantly surprised when my invoice was less than the estimate I was given, due to the efficient moving crew.
Friendly, and positive attitudes from both administrative staff, and moving crew alike.
Thank you for top notch service!

Main floor move into storage pod

We hired Rent-a-Son to move our furniture and carpets into storage while we renovated our main floor and had an excellent experience. The customer service team was very prompt in responding to our service inquiry and the booking process was painless. Direye and his crew arrived on time and worked quickly and professionally to get the job done in less time than budgeted. Our items were handled with care. Pricing was competitive with other services we’ve used in the past. Would highly recommend.

Bad weather, tight access, job well done

Direye was very pleasant to deal with. The venue has tight parking and a busy street. We had tons of lose items. Will hire him and Gurpinder at next opportunity. Also bad weather.

Antique sideboard moved from Toronto to Waterloo

Extremely satisfied with the service provided by Rent-a-Son's team Nils and Hector. Arrived punctually at the time promised. Team was friendly,
courteous, efficient and careful. We'd most certainly use their services for other moving needs. Great work Nils and Hector. Your company couldn't be better represented.

Very satisfied

Moving sucks, but we're glad we chose Rent-a-Son to handle our move. This was our second time using this company, and the second time we've been very satisfied with the service.

Erika helped us to coordinate, and then Julian, Tyler, and Hector handled the move. We had a lot of stuff, much of it heavy (sorry, guys!), but the crew was prompt, courteous, and worked very hard. We really appreciated their efforts.

Everything was handled with care -- we haven't found one damaged item or blemish, which is very impressive. And the final bill was dead-on to the original estimate.

We hope we never have to move again. But if we do, we'd certainly give Rent-a-Son another call. Thanks again!
