The Best Movers in Toronto

Posted by Liora Ipsum / November 13, 2013

movers torontoThe best movers in Toronto can be a better alternative to bribing your friends with pizza and beer. These hired guns are known for being efficient, professional and (generally) transparently priced; they come equipped for local or long moves and will at least alleviate your back, if not your stress levels.

Keep in mind that in Toronto it is common practice for rates to vary seasonally, by day of the week and time of the month. When hiring prospective movers, be realistic in gaging the extent of your stuff; a bigger truck can mean less Tetris-like-loading, more movers can mean faster moves.

Be sure to ask lots of questions upfront: some companies bill travel time, mileage or a fuel surcharge additionally. When in doubt, take advantage of handy resources published by the Canadian government like The Consumer Checklist for Choosing a Moving Company and The Good Practice Guidelines for Canadian Movers.

Here are the best movers in Toronto.

Cargo Cabbie
This 4-truck fleet of movers based out of Leslieville primarily services the downtown core without any additional travel fee. In business since 2010, the company boasts new trucks and crew of fit, non-smoking and friendly movers who'll do single item moves or large scale home, condo or office moves. Prices vary per type of job (and flat rates are available) but typically jobs start at $200 for the first hour plus $50 for each additional half hour.

Two Men and a Truck
A top choice for home or business, local or long distance moves, this franchised corporation offers packing and unpacking services, single-piece furniture or piano moves, and, will even make stops along the way. Rates vary at the 21 locations across Southern Ontario and are quoted at an hourly rate.

Rent a Son
Since 2000, this North York-based moving company with eight trucks has offered friendly, efficient moving and packing services across the GTA. Estimates are calculated per size of the job and mileage between destinations so you won't pay extra if the truck gets stuck in traffic. They also offer a price match guarantee on comparable quotes from the competition.

Your Friend with a Cube Van
Based in Cabbagetown for over a decade, this moving company offers a full range of services including packing/unpacking, furniture assembly and supplies. A cube van and two movers is billed at $200 for the first hour and then another $40 for each extra half hour. The minimum is only one hour though and there's no additional charges for fuel or travel in the downtown.

Joe the Mover
Founded in 1970, this business has grown from just one man and a truck to a fleet of six reliable trucks staffed by friendly, courteous movers. Rates begin at $65 per hour plus one hour travel time. Additional services include packing, storing and plastic bin rentals (which btw, are really great. Also try FrogBox, Condobinz or City Boxes).

G&S Moving and Storage
Greg and Sons, based in Scarborough has been moving people across the GTA and Canada since 1985. In addition to "trouble-free moving" the family owned and operated business also offers storage facilities and packing supplies. Each job is quoted during an onsite survey and hourly prices fluctuate seasonally and at different times of the month.

El Cheapo
In business for 20+ years, this moving company really is one of the most cost effective. Rates for a 16-foot cube truck and two movers start at $110 for the first hour and are billed at $33.75 every quarter hour after that. Rates include insurance, gas, mileage, industrial blankets, dollies and shrink wrap so there's no hidden costs.

Energy Crew
This moving company guarantees its crew will show up and get the job done or your move is free. The company doesn't bill for travel time or fuel within the downtown core, prices start at $150 for the first hour including a 16 foot cube van manned by two efficient pro movers, and then each additional 30 minutes is billed at $42.50.

Firemen Movers
Servicing the GTA, this moving company employs off-duty firefighters for residential and commercial moves. The base rate for two men on a job is $109 per hour (minimum 4 hours). Travel time and a $45 fuel surcharge are billed additionally.

I have used Cargo Cabbie three times, once for a full move and twice for some small moves. Each time it went really well and I was very happy with the service I received. They were all very friendly and got the job done without any headaches.

I will for sure use them again, just hope that I don't have to move any time soon again :)

Laura / November 13, 2013 at 12:54 pm
I've used Cargo Cabbie a couple times and they are top notch. They are reliable, efficient and really friendly guys. Highly recommend them!
Maria Gutierrez / November 13, 2013 at 12:54 pm
6 months ago I moved from Richmond Hill to Toronto with the help from CargoCabbie.
My move was completed on time, with no damages and no surprises.
The year before I hired a company from Craigslist and was a nightmare, hiring a reputable moving company will save you time and give you the piece of mind you need on moving day..
Definitely worth paying a bit extra and let the pros do the hard work.
JohnnyBoy / November 13, 2013 at 01:03 pm
I used El Cheapo ONCE - since it was the worst move of my life. They were supposed to be there @ 5 pm showed up at 8:30, sent two guys (who in speaking to found out @ least one had only been hired for the end of month rush) one was all of 90lbs soaking wet and basically stood around watching me and my friends move things, complaining as he walked up the stairs

I was on the fourth floor of a walk-up and had a couch-bed and had communicated this to El Cheapo on booking. The guys had been told they were moving a few boxes. Long and short, we finally unloaded the truck @ my new residence at close to 11 pm. With them ACTUALLY nagging my friends and family (who jumped in to save my butt) to 'move faster' because they had another job to get to. I basically paid over $400 for a truck rental.

And I lost count of how many things they broke. I went with 2 Guys out of Etobicoke for my next move and although they cost me more, it balanced out without the damage (of which there was none).
AMD / November 13, 2013 at 01:24 pm
I have to add In-and-Out Moving: Super professional, fair pricing, and quick. Our experience with them for an apartment move was a breeze. Highly recommend using these guys.
Lucas / November 13, 2013 at 01:27 pm
Just use Polanski moving, no stress and they always deliver on their promise.
Lisa / November 13, 2013 at 01:39 pm
El Cheapo Movers fit us in on short notice after we discovered that the discount movers we were planning to use had terrible ratings and we most likely a scam. If not for them, we would have been stuck moving ourselves... not sure how we would have done that!
Siva / November 13, 2013 at 01:39 pm
I decided to use Rent-a-son after reading reviews on Homestars about six months ago for a move to Mississauga. The moving coordinator was accommodating to my busy schedule and the movers were all experienced, courteous, and on time! I will be using Rent-a-son for my next move and have recommended them to all my family and friends!
Mark / November 13, 2013 at 01:53 pm
I have used Rent-a-son on several occasions and have always been extremely impressed with their work. They are hard working, trustworthy, efficient, professional, timely, and always pleasant to work with. This goes for not only their movers, but also their office staff and booking agents. I have recommended their services to many friends and colleagues, and the reports back have always been just as glowing.
Em / November 13, 2013 at 01:54 pm
I have used El Cheapo a few times, I have always been pleased with their service, and their estimates are accurate and reasonable.

Unfortunately, I had an extremely poor experience with Energy Crew movers. Their estimate was about half of what I was eventually billed; the movers that were sent to our home were extremely slow. The movers damaged some of our furniture, but their insurance was so poor that it was not worth my time to submit the damage for claims (something like 50 cents/pound damage coverage). Unfortunately, some of the damaged items had sentimental value and could not be replaced, and were damaged in spite of our efforts to wrap and protect them.

The move went slowly enough that myself and my husband had to start moving (most of the furniture) ourselves in order to complete the move at a reasonable time, and we were moving the contents of a 1BR into a home - not a lot of stuff. My email to the company, and to the better business bureau, did not serve to resolve my complaint. I would never recommend this moving company and advise against using them.
Jon / November 13, 2013 at 02:09 pm
I recently moved from downtown to Markham, and after spending a few weeks carefully researching movers and getting estimates, I said "screw it" and booked with a company called Benini Moving which I had never heard of before they shoved a cheap-looking flyer through my mail slot, and who quoted a price a good 30% below the bigger companies I talked to. This probably sounds like the beginning of a nightmare move story, but they were great: professional, courteous, careful, and quick. Just goes to show you I guess, not all the small operators are incompetent crooks.
Gigliamo / November 13, 2013 at 02:57 pm
I've used El-Cheapo many times, . they don't give estimates, so I dont understand what that girl at the top is talking about.
Victoria / November 13, 2013 at 03:16 pm
My boyfriend and i used Cargocabbie 2 months ago to move out of a second floor walk up apartment, and they were great. The owner came along with two movers, arrived on time and prepared for the move. The booking process was simple and clear, the price was reasonable compared to other moving companies.
All our stuff was wrapped with blankets and moved to our new home in The Annex with very tricky stairs and the guys didn't complain or either damaged any of the items, furniture. Extremely hard working and friendly at all times.
We were happy on moving day and we highly recommend this company to anyone looking for a stress free move.
Ed / November 13, 2013 at 03:27 pm
I used El-Cheapo because they had the lowest quote on moving my 1-bdrm. apt. Two guys with a truck showed up on time, however they were very, very slow. In fact, after every trip up to the apt. and back to the truck, they stopped to take a break, chat, smoke etc. Me and my older sister (late 50s) ran circles around these lazy guys in order to complete a move that was taking forever.
Jenny / November 13, 2013 at 04:44 pm
Tippet-Richardson should definitely be on the list! They have been in business since 1927 offering the best in moving. My husband and I have used them twice and would recommend Tippet-Richardson to anyone looking for a quality move. They provided "white glove" service! They made sure all of my furniture was wrapped and protected and the friendly staff was a pleasure to work with. From the initial quote to the box removal at the end, the process was better than I could have ever imagined. Moving can be stressful, but they made it as easy as possible.
Annie / November 13, 2013 at 05:26 pm
Hands down, I think Angel Movers are the best. I've used them 5 times already, and every time was smooth sailing. They moved a grand piano several times, and even picked up a cargo from the Pearson airport. They're up front with the costs. They are hassle free, efficient, reliable, professional, on time and polite. Johan, the owner of the company personally oversees and assists with the move. I highly recommend them.
Kory / November 13, 2013 at 05:53 pm
We used Rent-a-son for our move in August into a new house. They sent a crew of three guys who were extremely friendly, careful, hard working and very professional. The overall level of service was amazing and they exceeded our expectations along every step of the way. I have absolutely no hesitation in using them again and would recommend them to all with no reservation. They definitely took the stress out of moving!
Steve / November 13, 2013 at 06:52 pm
I have used Cargo Cabbie twice this year- once for my small business move, and then my home. Both times were great. They really changed my thoughts about the moving industry. The whole crew really seemed to care about the work they were doing.
I really appreciated that there were no hidden fees and they got the job done quickly and didn't waste my time. Would recommend them highly.
Gigliamo / November 13, 2013 at 07:42 pm
That's an explanation of the rates, not an estimate. It's still based on how long it takes. I've asked "how long do you think it will take?" more than once, and been told that it depends purely on how accurate your list of contents is, how far a walk to elevators etc. I've seen my friends move, (with Cheapo and other companies) , where they thought it would take 2-3 hours, and it took 5-6, the crews never took a break or anything it just takes as long as it takes.
The Glue / November 13, 2013 at 08:32 pm
Also had a less than impressive encounter with El Cheapo. They were 3 hours late and moved extremely slow on a basic apartment move. We were on a pretty strict budget at the time so with the meter running I ended up doing just as much work as the two gents they sent. Would never use them again.
Christina / November 13, 2013 at 11:09 pm
Dave from City Truck ( is awesome. His pricing is honest and fair and the team arrived on time with a super clean truck, blankets and supplies. They were efficient, careful and in great spirits all day, never complained about a thing (unlike every other mover I have ever hired). I wasn't just happy with the move, they actually made me enjoy it!
Daniel / November 13, 2013 at 11:17 pm
We used Cargo Cabbie three times in a month's span this year! Once was to do our main move, and they brought a large truck and three movers who did the job way faster than we imagined. The other times were to pick-up and drop-off items we bought on kijiji to furnish our home. For these items (couch and dining room table and chairs) they were very kind and we were able to arrange the pick up on short notice and within our budget. Every time we used them the crew had positive attitudes, worked quickly, and were careful with our stuff! We will continue to use them and highly recommend them.
Walttson Holt / November 14, 2013 at 01:43 am
Few days back i have shifted my home, for that i have hired moving services, they did very good job in moving. Really i am fully satisfied with their services, if you want you can visit
Ron / November 14, 2013 at 09:00 am
The problem with El Cheapo is they are so hit and miss. When they hit they're awesome. I used to use them a lot for tenant moves, but gave up when it became obvious you were never sure what you would get. As someone else mentioned, the good teams are excellent. The slow teams drag out the job, and over charge it. At one point I had friends come over to help out the 2 movers because they were taking so long. I think the comment about organized is correct, they've grown bigger than they are capable of managing or supervising. Which is sad.
Ron / November 14, 2013 at 09:07 am
This is an enlightening Marketplace episode.

The scam company, Husky Movers, has since changed their name, but not their tactics.
Jeff replying to a comment from Sam / November 14, 2013 at 09:54 am
I have used Cargo Cabbie and I don't understand why their bio says no travel fee?? Their initial $200 charge clearly is more to cover travel expenses. I think this was misleading and after moving since using them again, I realized they are just burying their "travel fee" into that first hour. I ended up using some guy and a truck that someone recommended to me and it was a positive experience.
Charles / November 14, 2013 at 10:44 am
I used Cargo Cabbie for my home move and I was very pleased with the service. The truck was very clean, they were careful with our stuff, nothing was damaged during the move, and the estimate was accurate. I was also very impressed by the movers themselves. They started moving right away, never dawdled around, and at the same time they were always friendly and polite to me and my wife. For what it's worth I will be using them for future moves and would happily recommend them to other folks.
Remy / November 14, 2013 at 10:46 am
Glad to see Cargo Cabbie on this list.
Bojana / November 14, 2013 at 11:54 am
I just got an estimate from Cargo Cabbie for almost a $1,000 for a move that involves no couch, no bed, and no entertainment unit! The biggest item in my 2 bed tiny apt would be my dresser. So I guess if you have the money to pay outrageous prices, they are your best bet!
Christopher / November 14, 2013 at 12:07 pm
I've used Cargo Cabbie 2 times now. They've always been great and Javier is always ready to accommodate regarding scheduling etc. They delivered a really heavy couch up a narrow flight of stairs and they assembled some pain in the ass Ikea stuff for me. Quick, professional and friendly.

There are a lot of bad companies out there, but from my experience, Cargo Cabbie is great. I've recommended them to all my friends.
Mark / November 14, 2013 at 04:06 pm
Let's face it, moving sucks! However, for my move last year I used Rent a Son and had an amazing experience. From start to finish they took the stress right off! Great price, timely and the guys were excellent. I couldn't believe how friendly and professional the crew was. I recommended them to everyone that asks.
Gina / November 14, 2013 at 04:12 pm

Im reading this and just wonder how any one would want to pay such outrageous prices. We moved several times and uesd Inner city moving. Absolutely incredible service, The movers are very professional and performed the move flawlessly.

They all worked with smiles and with humor -- making the process SO MUCH MORE PLEASANT than a move ever could be! I unloaded one box of food and a loaf of bread wasn't even squished. We are amazed with Inner city moving and with the unbelievable team -- starting with our sales person, Paul, and extending to ALL the guys on sit. We totally recommend Inner city moving for their amazing service.

The pricing is easy and straight forward with no hidden charges or surprises. Definitely a stress-free experience. Absolutely incredible service.

Catalina / November 16, 2013 at 11:13 pm
We used Angel Movers in the spring snd they were amazing! They were so efficient, paid a lot of attention to detail, took really good care of our belongings and both houses - from and to the one we moved to. They even had non-slip mats to protect the floors.

They were so much better priced than all the other companies we looked into, including a
lot on this list. We strongly recommend Angel Movers!
Natasha / November 18, 2013 at 11:39 am
My experience with Able Moving Company (Toronto, ON) was a terrible one. The move left a lot of my items damaged (dresser has chipped paint, broken vase, scratched nightstand and they took my desk apart without undoing the screws, so they are now stripped). The icing on the cake is my floor lamp from Urban Barn went missing. I noticed that during my move there were other peoples items in the front of the truck. My guess is my floor lamp went to wherever all of that furniture was going. I called to complain and was sent to the damages/claims department. I was never contacted back. It was very poor. Finally, I called back and the receptionist told me to contact the owner directly, which I did and never heard back. Spend your money wisely and hire a proper and reliable moving company. It is not worth the aggravation and headache.

Marion Simon / November 30, 2013 at 02:06 pm
My Brother and I recently moved apartments and hired El Cheapo. They were wonderful. We had Bruce K and Brian P and they took care of everything. We had a humungous treadmil which the movers referred to as "The Beast" and they were determined to move it even though it looked impossible. They even removed the apartment door to accomplish this. I highly recommend El Cheapo Movers.

The right mover is important, but equally important is the right supplier of rental moving boxes.....CityBoxes offers free delivery and free pick up in Toronto and across the GTA. Use with confidence.....over 100 recent customer reviews available at homestars.
Outraged / December 10, 2013 at 11:06 pm
Energy crew is absolutely terrible. They ripped off my girlfriend and I when we were poor students.

They agreed to do a specific job - moving the couch from a top floor to the bottom via rope off the side of the house. That's why we hired movers - we would have moved everything ourselves otherwise. Instead, Energy Crew staff took all our goods in our truck, then refused to move the couch because it was getting dark out (it was hardly evening). They then basically held all our stuff hostage in their truck. The head mover was threatening, and got in the face of my 5'0 girlfriend. They threatened to leave our stuff on the sidewalk and make us move all the goods back up to our place. We ended up letting them finish the move and paid them just to avoid having to deal with them again.

El Cheapo came by a week later, did the job extremely fast and cheaply. I have also hired them through my workplace and they have always been amazing.
Alex / December 11, 2013 at 09:46 am
It's really important to find a good and trustworthy moving company for the removal because last year I moved from Toronto to Vancouver - and the whole process was really stressful.

Andy Williams / December 17, 2013 at 12:56 pm
I used You Move Me in Toronto and the staff and movers were incredibly friendly. The movers were careful with all of my belongings and were very personable. I moved in January of 2012 and it was one of the coldest days of the year. They even packed for me, including my closet. When we arrived at my new house, they put it all away. I've used other movers in the past, but You Move Me brings customer service to the next level.
SAFEER / January 2, 2014 at 05:25 pm
This list should also include ANGEL MOVERS. I scheduled a move on the day before New Years' eve 2013 within Scarborough & it was an unexpectedly pleasant & hassle free experience. Two very friendly & polite movers arrived ahead of schedule & completed shifting my things from the source to the destination before I knew it & they neither smoked nor wasted a second & handled my things with great care. Also their rates are lower than RENT A SON & CARGO CABBIE. ANGELS MOVERS comes highly recommended based on my experinece. Visit
Thanks for reading.

Hmmmm… Seems Cargo Cabbie has raised their prices… they just quoted me $650 for a move from King Street West to Wellington Street West - less than two blocks… You article states $200 for the first hour and $50 for each hour thereafter. I was quoted $260 and $130 per hour!

Do not use Able Moving and Storage Ltd. for moving any of your furniture beyond Toronto limits. Although they may say they do long hauls (Toronto to Calgary was my move), they are not equipped to do so and will hire a second party for the move. They broke the majority of my furniture, it arrived with an infestation (cockroaches), and they demanded cash up front on delivery or "our possession would be dumped at a storage facility and it would be our problem." Rude, unprofessional, and will say anything to keep you from calling back. Do NOT use this company!
Michele / January 19, 2014 at 11:30 am
El Cheapo was anything but cheap when I used them this past October. They started off great but once I complimented them on how fast they were moving (my bad) after that, they showed right hell down. The move ended taking FOREVER. A very basic move from a one-bedroom 650 square foot Queen West apartment with a tiny storage locker to another similar unit just metres away, LITERALLY JUST DOWN THE STREET ended up costing more than $700! Unbelievable.

Like a previous poster, I'd like to point out that Cargo Cabbie has REALLY jacked their prices in the two months since this article was posted -- they just quoted me $260/hour + $130/half-hour.

I specifically contacted them because of their glowing reviews and the rates cited in this piece, but was very shocked (and disappointed) to find out just how much their prices have ballooned in so short a time.
Ajeet Singh / January 30, 2014 at 01:54 pm
I called a moving co last week. the name of guy is Morco phone # 647-328-8297. This guy promised to come and do the moving. I waited for two hours and he kept saying 'our guys are on the way' but no one showed up. I had to hire some one else and pay double price. Beware of such cheats.
Andrew / January 31, 2014 at 07:42 pm
I had an emergency move and when I ask my friend they said twomen and a truck are awesome so I called them, Thank God I did!! They were so professional with all my things and the way they put me at ease. They wrapped all my furniture and took extra care of all my antiques . I just can't believe how it went so smooth and how the guys talk to me and made me feel like I knew them. I would only use and recommend twomen and a truck to anyone who's looking for a great move with no worries. I still talk about my move when people are moving.
Mohit / February 4, 2014 at 04:34 pm
I used Ants movers. Sunny was the guy and they were really good. Professionally managed my move and was fully satisfied.
Each hr is $60 and they have slot rates so 2.5 hrs is 150. They will charge $20 for transportation. Cheap and best !!

IN & OUT MOVERS are definitely the best moving company in the city right now. Living in Toronto for the past 12 years I've used three of the companies on the above list. 2 where okay and 1 was horrible. So far IN & OUT had the most professional service and the best price. Check them out:

2-hourly rate
3-transport or additional costs?

let me know thanks
Stack RnS / February 22, 2014 at 03:41 am
I hate it when the ones I hired to do my moving concerns doesn't even prepare an initial outline plan on important things that are needed in order to make it right. That's why I'm only choosing those moving companies that are not only highly skilled but with plan and dignity who will execute their services quickly and swiftly.

I just got a quote from Cargo Cabbies and it was $350 for the first hour and $170 each half hour after that! Comes to just over $1000 for an estimated 5hr job (I doubt it'll take that long, but hardly the point). Typical 1 bedroom condo/apt move.

About a week ago Javier and his crew from Cargo Cabbie moved us from our home in Mississauga to our newly renovated house in the Beaches area. We found this company on BlogTo and after reading reviews online here and we decided to book with them.
The team, great guys by the way, were extremely friendly, organized and clean. No one was hung over, they were extremely efficient and motivated to do a good job throughout the move.
I am very great full for taking about 20 minutes to research and look into moving companies. Most companies charge in different ways, while rates are almost the same, it is important to really look at what you get for the money you pay.
In this case Cargo Cabbie was money well spent.

If you're moving, this TO startup can change your address, update licenses and switch over utility accounts for you:
They also refer moving, packing and storage but these services are at a bit of a premium. The problem is that sooo many movers aren't properly insured. Also, be weary if the company that is your "mover" shows up in an unmarked truck. Happened to me once and incredibly, the moving company I had booked was just a "broker" and subcontracted their moves!!!
Chels / March 6, 2014 at 01:20 pm
I had an issue previously with movers where the "moving company" showed up in an unmarked van and as it turns out, the company I had called actually subcontracted the move to another "labour services company" that was not properly insured. Toronto startup (they update the addresses on licenses, taxes and transfer all utility accounts for you) also gave me quotes from moving companies, since I see here a couple people not getting proper quotes from movers.

Last week i used Darrin and Chris at Maple Rose Movers. We were referred to them from a co worker who had nothing but great things to say about them. They were the best movers we have ever had. They were honest with pricing and did not charge us for anything but the time they worked. They were funny and made the day a great experience. Our new place was on the 3rd floor and they were amazing the way they carried everything upstairs on their backs which is something i have never seen before.. Also if you love soccer then these guys are for you. All they talked about all morning long was soccer. Would highly recommend them..

Except for a 10 minute delay, which they compensated me for with a $20 discount, the move went very smoothly with Energy crew this past Saturday. The 3 guys who helped me were great especially Neil. They got to work as soon as they showed up, never complained even once and best of all, the smiled all the time. I've moved many times in the city and this is the first time I feel like I can use the same company again and recommend them to anyone moving.

I agree with Andrew's suggestion to check Homestars ratings first. There are a LOT of shady movers out there so checking Homestars and Yelp before you book your move is the minimum you should do. Also, get at least 3 quotes from different movers before deciding who to go with.

I get there are a lot of moving companies in Toronto but I'm not sure how Dino's Movers hasn't been mentioned. I've used them twice already and referred so many people to them for the simple fact that they never fail to make sure your items are taken care of and never over charge. They made it a point to make sure everything that I requested was being taken care of and even helped me pack some things. They also sell packing supplies which was great as I didn't have enough boxes.

Watch out for the super cheap random companies. You're definitely better off doing some research and getting someone that will not damage your items. Dino's Movers is awesome!

I've been calling for quotes and I would not recommend Two Men and A Truck. For a bachelor apartment worth of stuff they quoted me at $1150 and 7 about ridiculous! I could never recommend even calling them never mind using them.

I have moved many times over the years and El Cheapo was by far the most relaxing move yet. The office staff explained everything very clearly, gave me a confirmation number and put everything in writing! The movers were careful and efficient. I moved from Toronto to Oshawa and the final bill was very reasonable. I told the movers how pleased I was with the price since I was on disability and they called the office to authorize a discount they give to people with disabilities. I hope I do nto ever have to move again but if I do I know who I am going to call.
Ashley Miller / April 10, 2014 at 06:31 pm
I spent a ton of time searching for a solid mover and decided to move forward (no pun intended) with You Move Me. I'm surprised they aren't mentioned on this list.
Danny / April 13, 2014 at 04:01 pm
We hired Cargo Cabbie and our experience was great from start to finish. Having to move after four years of living in the same apartment wasn't easy, even more,found my self against the wall when trying to decide who should i hire to help us move. So many moving companies out there and so many horror stories,but finally!, Blogs like this are great for people like me who once struggle to find the right moving company. Thank you Blogto for allowing Torontonians express their good and bad stories. Lucky us, our story is a good one to remember.
Brittney / April 17, 2014 at 08:36 pm
When my husband and I moved from midtown to our new house in South Riverdale, one of my friends recommended You Move Me. Hands down easiest and best move of my life. They called before hand to let us know they were on their way. They brought us coffee and left with us with a nice house plant. They took good care packing the truck and nothing was broken or scratched. The price was reasonable as well. I won't mind moving in the future, as long as it's with You Move Me!

Joe the Mover / Moving Toronto / Miracle Movers, as they are otherwise known, are the WORST movers ever! It’s a miracle if your stuff shows up in one piece!

It was like herding cats and dogs. They were so lazy and wondering around.

They managed to damage almost every piece of furniture I own! The estimate for the job was 4-5 hours. They stretched it out the whole day, 8 hours for a simple move.

When I asked one of the workers to cover my furniture with the blanket they had in the van, he yelled at me “Don’t tell me how to do my job, I’ve been moving furniture for over 20 year.”

They also damaged the building fire sign, costing me my damage deposit.

The owner finally returned my call (after days of persisting) the types of questions they were asking were things like:

-“Were there any witnesses to the damages?”

Can I simply say what a comfort to discover somebody that truly knows what they're
discussing over the internet. You actually know how to bring a problem to
light and make it important. A lot more people ought to check this out and
understand this side of the story. I was surprised you aren't
more popular since you surely possess the gift.
