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 :)

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.

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).

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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Tippet-Richardson should definitely be on the list!http://tippet-richardson.com/ 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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

Dave from City Truck (citytruck.ca) 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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 angelmovers.ca.

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!

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.

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 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: http://inandoutmoving.ca/

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 Homestars.com 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:
https://movesuite.com/
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!!!

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 http://movesuite.com (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 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.

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!

They call me 15 minutes before arriving (on time ) and ask me if I want coffee from "Tim Horton"
they send me big truck 26 ft and 3 movers
the guys worked very good, they cover all my furniture and even the floor!

they work quiet not much talking,
in the and its was faster than I expected!

they charged me 109$ per hour
its took 6 hours plus 1 hour for travel time.

I had excellent experience with GIG Moving & Lumping. I assume this is a small business but two guys from GIG Moving and Lumping did an excellent job! They arrived on time and were friendly and professional at the same time. I was moving from condo to condo and I have to book the elevators in both condos. I was very stressed that we would not finish the move within the arranged time slot! But the guys did a fantastic job, and the move was finished earlier than I thought it would! They have packed the furniture in very professional manner and of course nothing was damaged. They also have asked me where I want to put my furniture and helped me to move boxes around the unit. I have never hired movers before and was very impressed. Thanks to GIG Moving and Lumping, my move was a very pleasant experience and for sure I would recommend them to others and use their services again.

Are you kidding me? My female friend hired TORONTO MOVERS yesterday to move to her new condo and the same thing happened! These guys were the laziest people that I've ever seen. Two guys taking their sweet time both carrying items that could easily be carried by one person while they both spoke in their native language and joked around. When they arrived at the new condo with the van, they just dumped the stuff off at the loading area and sneakily took off while we were inside in the building, leaving my friend screwed.

Usually i dont follow these best blogs, but i needed a mover lately and ended up picking one from here i.e. energycrew who even put blogto logo on their website. but this is what was my experience:


- Movers were half an hour late
- They did not bring anything to lay on the floor
- Nothing to wrap couch and other sensitive things
- Nothing to wrap a mattress
- Nothing to hold doors
- One of the person had smoked so much that even talking to him was difficult
- Truck had graffiti on it
- One of the mover was rude
- Charged me half an hour for 5 min extra time

i gave them my feedback and they offered me first hour for free for next move and apologized, but i am not sure if I could try them again.

I really wonder how blogto rates and makes these best lists.

Couldn't be more satisfied with My Ninja Movers, my moving experience was phenomenal! Maybe they are a new company, cause they just seemed to try harder. I have used 2-3 moving companies in the past but they were usually a bit careless with our belongings and sometimes a bit rude.
The experience I had with my ninjas was way different. They actually pulled up in a fully wrapped Ninjamobile with ninjas peaking out of little windows, very cool.
They were professional or should I say "ninja" from start to finish, from their uniforms to arriving on time and handling my entire move with care.
I would definitely recommend this company to my friends and family and be confident that they will do a good job.

I agree with Ethan M. My Ninja Movers were efficient from my first phone call inquiry to my moving day. I liked how they laid out the pricing in a straight forward way, no hidden or sneaky fees. I called around to 4-5 other companies trying to get the best quote but when all is said and done, the Ninja's seemed to be the best price for value.

Long story short, my move couldn't have gone smoother. I would recommend them in a heartbeat. Also because the NinjaMobile is pretty awesome.

Gateway Movers were very professional, on time, friendly and very approachable during our moving. What I love about them is that they are brutally honest on how much we are going to pay on the move plus they don’t charge an extra fees. They have been able to do the moving job very well and gave us much confidence that the are now one of best small moving company in Toronto For sure, I am recommending you to my family and friends. A great job indeed! call them on 416 723 6683 , When used them few years ago there we not that good but now they seem to have improved at lot maybe because there were starting their business .

PLEASE REMOVE ENERGY CREW FROM YOUR LIST.

One of their movers was hitting on me the entire time, and I was trying to be friendly so that the crew could finish their job on time.

I had asked them to help me put my bed together (a simple task that I could do myself with the right pieces). Since they had their own toolkit, I assumed that they would know how to properly put a bed together. I was wrong. This guy somehow managed to put the screws into my bed BACKWARDS! Now I need to go to carry my bed head to Home Hardware and figure out how to remove these screws.

And the third mover who wasn't carrying much up and down the stairs was complaining about how much stuff I have - even though the moved took less that 2.5hrs with all of their breaks.

PLUS - They dumped ALL of my boxes and belongings in my living room, even though EACH box was marked bedroom/living room/kitchen etc. So lazy!

Their price was reasonable, but unless you plan on supervising them every step of the way, DO NOT hire Energy Crew. Spend an extra 100-200 and get your move done professionally.

Interesting to see this. Apologies for the length of this post, but in the past two days, my parents while downsizing had an utterly harrowing experience from the same company, I believe (though not sure if it was TORONTO MOVERS or TORONTO MOVING SERVICE or some other conveniently ambiguous moniker that makes them impossible to google/yelp/yellowpages/etc). I feel morally obligated to at the very least pass on this story in hopes that no one else will get screwed over the way we did.

So, the movers showed up in a truck that was clearly too small for moving from a >5bdrm house to a townhouse, and would not work unless paid the entire amount quoted up front in cash (alarm bells should have gone off here). They were also downright rude, lazy and slow. They had to make multiple trips between houses to unload all the furniture but during the first trip (this was after 2 HOURS of working btw), they stated that the amount they charged was only for a basic move and didn't take into account multiple trips/moving furniture up stairways/whatever, so they classically refused to unload the furniture unless they were paid double the initial amount in cash again. Unloading was carelessly done, our yard had a fair share of shattered glass by the time they were through.

After two trips back and forth (during the second trip, the truck wasn't even half filled), the movers just dumped everything into the garage/main entrance and said they'd rearrange/reassemble everything once all the furniture from the old house had been moved over. Except...they never made it back to the old house to complete the move! After about 2hrs of ignoring our calls, the company finally called back to inform us that unfortunately, "the movers were TOO TIRED TO COMPLETE THE MOVE" and were not returning to finish the job (that they had been paid for, doubly, in cash. Clearly we should all go work for this company where you get paid double for not even doing your job, and face absolutely no consequences). The company also provided outstanding customer service in that they were unable to secure replacement workers to finish the job and promised to "send over some guys tomorrow" to finish the incomplete work. (Never mind that the house needed to be vacated that day due to contractual obligations/new family moving in the next day/etc. It doesn't matter if your company's movers place your customers in a legal bind as long as you say sorry a million times over the phone, right?!)

Anyway, the kicker was that the next day they called back stating that they were sending over a couple of new guys to finish the outstanding 3 hours of work from the previous day loading everything from the old house....but they needed to be paid MORE money (up front in cash) due to company policy. At this point, my parents were fed up and just wanted the house vacated, not wanting to face legal trouble. So the workers spent 3 hours loading the truck and finally had the house emptied...and upon reaching the new house, informed that they had only been compensated for 3 hours of work and, in order to unload the furniture, they required (SURPRISE!) another cash payment for 2 hours more of work, due to company policy and were completely unsympathetic to the fact that NOTHING about this move had gone according to ANY sort of policy (and then told them to run over to the bank and get more cash so that they could start working because after 2 hours, they had another move scheduled/another set of customers to screw over). Anyway, after receiving payment, the movers finished unloading the furniture off the truck, left it in an unorganized mess in the front of the house and drove off.

Needless to say, this ordeal was an absolute NIGHTMARE that seemed to never end. If you enjoy being held at ransom and bullied out of your hard-earned money by a coordinated band of uneducated, irresponsible and (almost criminally) unprofessional thugs for days at a time, by all means use TORONTO MOVERS/TORONTO MOVING SERVICE for your next move. However, for the rest of you folks out there who have other proclivities, STAY THE HELL AWAY FROM THESE MONSTERS.

I had a move date of June 30, 2014 (I subsequently found out that this is the busy move day of the year). I had hired GTA Moving Guys and gave them a deposit. Guess what?.... they never showed up. They claimed that some of their moving guys didn't show up for work and they couldn't make it.

Still have not got back my deposit either. I would never use these guys and I have been telling anyone who asks not to use these guys. If they can do it to one person they could do it again and I wouldn't take that chance.

I moved my 3 bedroom house with ABI MOVING, they did satisfy me for doing a great professional job!!!. They did all the packing and assembling for me. They were on time and with enough movers as I was told. All the job was done in about 7 hours. I would give them five stars.

I can not believe that a lot of businesses out there are not regulated and poor public is getting ripped off every day. Movers, Duct Cleaning, Plumbing just to name a few.

I moved on August 1, 2014. I had a generous moving expense and were looking for a company that would pack and unpack for me as well. I found two companies that offer this service: AMJCampbell and Two Men and A Truck. Both companies had very bad reviews on HomeStars. I saw the current page in which Two Men and a Truck is listed as one of the best in Toronto. Having had good experiences with BlogTo's recommendations in the past, I decided to go with this company. What a big mistake! Two men and a truck was a disaster and gave me the worst moving experience I've ever had. I wish BlogTo would do a more thorough evaluation of companies before listing them here.

Energy crew - more like Lethargic crew. Sloooooow. I ended up doing most of the move because they were so blatant in their attempts to draw out the move. And i'm a 100 lb girl. Pathetic.

"Simply The Best" is a perfect description for David & his team at City Truck Moving.

Having very little luck with securing a mover for a recent move (most of the companies listed here were either completely booked or quoted RIDICULOUS fees for moving the contents of a studio apartment) I decided to call City Truck after reading one of the comments posted above.
From the get go David was accommodating, willing to work with my schedule and his pricing was straight forward & fair.
He & Steven were punctual, courteous (felt like I was being moved by friends), efficient & worked extremely hard to complete my move in the time I was quoted for on what may have been the hottest day of the summer. I definitely recommend him & his team as you will not be disappointed with their services and my standards are HIGH!

BTW, the rave of reviews may have gone to Cargo Cabbie's head as they were very casual in the way they handled my inquiry. It felt like they'd made their monthly quota & just weren't interested in securing additional business.

We moved from a condo downtown to a house in East York and used You Move Me on a recommendation from our friends . They made moving such a better experience than we expected! First they delivered the moving boxes to our house a few weeks before. The day of the move they brought us coffee!! They showed up on time, were friendly, professional and fun! The price was just as expected, even using a small condo elevator. They credited me for the boxes I didn't use and even left with us with a plant, out first housewarming gift :) HIGHLY RECOMMEND You Move Me!

On the recommendation of a friend, I used My Ninja Movers (www.myninjamovers.com) for a move this summer and it was a fantastic experience! Let me count the ways:

1. Great communication! Quoting was straight forward. There's an online inventory you fill out, & I received a written quote within 24 hours. A few days later I realized I was going to have extra stuff so I called in to let them know...not a problem, edited it over the phone & received an updated confirmation. (hint: ask for Andre or John)

2. Their truck is awesome! A company that puts that much time & attention to detail making something as normal as a truck look like the movers bat-mobile get my attention.

3. They really live up to their name in that they are the most Ninja movers I think I've ever seen. I just sat back and marveled at how quickly & efficiently they were able to load the truck up.

4. They REALLY know what they're doing, and they use their skills to go above and beyond for you. Any tiny problem that arose, they knew exactly how to deal with it. For instance, they discovered my table leg was loose and used their tools to tighten it for me before moving it into the truck. They took my bed frame apart and put it back together like they could do it with their eyes closed.

5. They were really friendly, chill guys.

Overall, I really could not have asked for a better moving experience. I was so happy with them

My third move using Cargo Cabbie and again this guys gave me the best rate to deliver my new sectional couch within downtown . Some other companies gave me twice higher prices with minimum hours and crazy rates. My furniture arrived safe wrapped with blankets, shrink wrapped and on time .

Just great, the price they quote is the price you end up paying if not less. I know that sounds like common sense, but in this type of industry, the quoted price is rarely a given. I've had other companies quote lower prices, but knew that that would either go up or the quality wouldn't be there.
The communication has been top-notch. I've worked with other moving/shipping companies and getting updates weren't great experiences.

One of the best in the city. Yeah, it's not glamorous or anything to get excited about, but they do it with respect and the care they give is exceptional. And they've been early on a couple occasions (they give you a heads up). On this most recent move, I let them know that I needed their expertise as I knew moving the couch into my freshly painted home wasn't going to be easy, but these guys made it look very easy, no headaches, no damages.

Don't fool around with anyone else. I would not hesitate to recommend them and will call them when I move again. Thanks Cargo Cabbie!

I just used Ninja movers yesterday. I had a small move (not a lot of stuff) and short distance (3 Km).

The experience was A +! They were quick to respond to any questions. The guys who moved me were friendly and got right to work. They were very careful with my belongings and with the elevator at the condo. They were also very reasonably priced.

I would definitely use them again and I recommend them to anyone wanting a stress-free experience.

Cargo-cabbie was great, book with them a week ago for a small move and left me super impressed. They were speedy, friendly, reasonably priced for the two hours that took to move my furniture from my basement apartment into storage locker. It is great to know that there are good movers out there.

Not to many mentions of Maple Rose Movers here. I was lucky enough to find them on a Liberty Village page on FB. I asked for recommendations and got 5 replies in minutes to contact them. I have to say they were fantastic. They made my wife feel comfortable throughout the move and had a great sense of urgency and care throughout the day. Darrin and Chris were interactive with me from the first call to them and when it came time to billing they were true to their word and even gave us a discount on drive time because they are based in Liberty Village. Great guys that gave us a great service and we could not have been happier. Thanks guys for everything.
