Move to Montreal

Made the move from Toronto to Montreal in the cold. Amanda had coordinated everything to a tee beforehand, which gave me peace of mind when the big day came. Oriki and Patrick were absolute stars in organizing and disassembling all my belongings and neatly placing them into the moving truck. Not to mention, they were so polite.

In Montreal, they had to move me onto a busy residential street. They problem solved that, no problem. Personally, it would’ve given me anxiety to do that on my own. They handled it like pros. For a small family moving to a new province, I can express enough gratitude for the whole Rent a Son team. If you’re looking only at dollar amount, go somewhere else. If you’re looking for a professional move and peace of mind, choose this company!

Outstanding Service

The team at Rent-a-son was amazing to work with. The moving crew was very polite and completed our move very quickly. All of our items were packed with care and the entire process was smooth. A big thank you to Rent-a-son for making our move so easy.

AMAZING Movers - Friendly, Efficient, Experts

We can't thank the crew that did our move enough - they were so friendly right from the start all the way to the end and were SO efficient. Junior, Jowel, and Kosiso completed my condo move yesterday into a building with outrageously long hallways and did it so much faster than I would have ever been able to do on my own. They took care of all of my things with such care - everything arrived perfectly intact. They knew how to handle every single odd piece of furniture I had, checked in regularly to see where things should go/how I wanted them stored and honestly were just so amazing throughout the whole process. They helped to disassemble all my items that needed to be and packed away my bigger fragile items that I did not even know how to tackle on my own in such an easy, effortless manner. I absolutely hate moving and these guys made it feel so easy. We also ended up having an additional wine fridge dropped off at our building that they moved for us with no hesitation when we asked. Can't recommend this moving company enough.

Downtown Toronto Move

This was my fourth move with Rent-a -Son, and there's a reason I keep coming back to them — every member of their team that I've encountered has been friendly, professional, and an expert at what they do. This move was no exception. The team was incredibly efficient and kind, attentive to special instructions for delicate items, and highly adaptable and creative when it came to resolving unexpected hiccups that came up.

Amanda has been my Moving Coordinator for every move I've done with Rent-a-Son, and she's always been fantastic to work with. She knows exactly what to ask and how to guide someone who's going through the exciting but stressful process of moving.

The moving crew this time was made up of Junior, Jowel, Eero, and Amog, and I can't thank them enough for everything they did! Their incredibly hard work and expertise made a big move go as efficiently as possible. And their adaptability really saved the day — when we got to the new place, the truck was too large to fit behind the building, but they were able to come up with a creative solution to make it work. And even at the very end of a loooong day with extra challenges, they were still so kind, courteous and friendly. Thank you so, so much, team! You are the best!

Fantastic service!!

John, my moving coordinator, was friendly, informative and approachable right from the beginning. He answered a lot of questions and was always easy to reach. Rent-a-Son provides the most detailed estimate of any of the movers I approached about my move. The moving team itself was hands down the best moving crew I've ever worked with. They hustled from start to finish, were very strong and hard working. All three of them had great attitudes and a sense of humour (helpful on a move day!). The final cost came in under the estimate, which was a welcome surprise. You cannot go wrong booking your move with this company!

reliable and responsible

I found Rent-a-son and its long distance moving agent, Amanda, very responsible and reliable. She followed every step and ensured that my moving would be as smooth as possible. She answered every call and mail promptly and precisely. She even managed to refund the money for the service that I did not used. Thank you Amanda.

Local move within Toronto

I have used RAS several times over the years for small, local moves. The most recent move was easy to schedule, the estimate was provided quickly, and response to online forms and questions was by phone and prompt. My team this time was John who coordinated the move, Oriki and Tristan who handled the move with care. I appreciated punctuality, efficiency, courtesy, reliability, and respecting the quoted cost (no surprises). I will continue to use this company in future and recommend to others.

Moving Home

I just wanted to say THANK YOU to the rent-a-son team for helping us move home. Thank you to Rob who helped us co-ordinate the move overall from start to finish. I want to especially say thank you to the Jack, Olamiji and Jakeem who helped with the move. They were incredibly helpful, respectful of us as a family, our home and everything in it. They treated us and our belongings with great care and dignity. Amazing gentlemen!!!! Rent-a-son should be very proud to have these 3 gentlemen representing your brand.

Thanks to rent-a-son again for helping my family and I move.

Horrible, damaged and lost items, company does not care

Do not hire rent a son! They lost part of my shipment, boxes arrived ripped open, multiple items were damaged and they have the worst communication I have ever encountered. The long-distance coordinator takes over a week to respond to emails and does not communicate timing or details of shipment arrival. I was given 12 hours notice before my belongings arrived despite being promised at least 24 hours. They promised I would be kept in the loop as to the arrival of my belongings and this was absolutely not the case. They advertise careful packing to protect larger items, this did not happen as damage occurred and their response to this damage was “this sometimes occurs”. This entire process was extremely frustrating and upsetting. This is a very poor quality and unprofessional company. DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY, they do not respect your belongings or your time.
