When we decided to totally renovate our Toronto house after 21 years, it became obvious that staying in the house during the job would be very impractical and so my wife and I packed up and moved most of our things into storage. A small amount was taken to my sister's where we stayed for 7 weeks. The rest went into storage facilities, not far from our home. The moving company that we employed (Rent-A-Son) did such a good job that we actually used them on three separate occasions, to get stuff out quickly and into storage, so the contractor could begin work in our house, to take some things out to my sister's place in Scarborough, and then finally to bring everything back, afterwards.
We dealt with Erica at Rent-A-Son, initially in order to make the bookings, and she handled everything in a very professional manner. We didn't expect the price to be dirt cheap and it wasn't, however, the quality of the job was so professional, we never quarrelled about it. When the movers came, they were right on time, fully equipped to help wrap items carefully and 3 young men were very nice and helpful, eager to load the truck. Each job was done exactly as we expected and within the estimated time given. Kudos go to Malcolm, Allan, and Sam in particular as they had to return large items to the house that included a huge armoire we refer to as "the coffin", actually big enough for two bodies.
If we ever need a moving company again, we will be certain to call Rent-A-Son, as they performed well beyond our expectations. I highly recommend them to all my friends, neighbours, and family.
