The ideal way to move a few boxes across Canada (or between Canada and the U.S.) should balance cost and speed. Couriers like FedEx and Canada Post can be prohibitively expensive for shipping anything more than a small box.

The best way to move a few boxes across the country is using a moving company like Rent-a-Son. We offer flexible services, competitive rates, guaranteed delivery times, and a seamless experience.

Movers usually price local moves on a per-hour basis. Movers can cost anywhere from $75 to $150 per hour (or more) depending on:

  • The truck(s) required.
  • The number of people involved.
  • Any special requirements for the move.
  • Packing boxes needed.

A great way to reduce moving costs is disassembling the furniture beforehand, clearing up clutter, and packing smaller items in boxes.

Here are a few things you shouldn’t pack for the move:

  • Hazardous materials
  • Chemicals
  • Flammables
  • Food items
  • Plants
  • Pets

These items pose health and safety risks during transport, and your movers will likely refuse to carry them. If you are not sure your item is safe to be moved, speak to us today to find out.

Most of your belongings are covered under insurance when you move with Rent-a-Son. That means if your items get lost or damaged, you will be reimbursed for them. However, some items that are excluded are:

  • Flat pack furniture
  • Artwork
  • Glassware
  • Owner-packed boxes
  • Plants
  • High-value items

Talk to us to find out what will and won’t be covered by insurance during your move.

The most convenient, cost-effective way to move a small amount of things is by hiring professional movers like Rent-a-Son. Our flexible services and competitive pricing makes us the preferred choice for small moves within the city and for cross-border moves.

Best of all, we provide specialized packing materials and even pack items for you.

Moving items up and down one or two flights of stairs is included in the cost of the move, though any more than that and you may be charged an additional amount. This is to cover the extra effort movers must put into moving furniture, and take precautions to ensure walls and banisters don’t get damaged during the move.

There’s a lot of “wisdom” flying around when it comes to saving costs during a move, though there’s no clear answer for us:

  • Move during winter because demand is lower. That’s true, but winter moves can take longer due to snow and ice.
  • Move mid-week. Demand is usually higher on the weekend, but that doesn’t mean prices are. Your move is priced on the amount you are moving, not when.
  • Move in the morning. This makes sense because you’ll spend time packing and loading up during peak hour and drive when traffic is lighter.

Getting an in-home estimate is a great idea! It’ll ensure that you receive an accurate estimate, and the movers will be aware of any site access issues and special items to be moved. You can prepare an inventory with your mover, too, and eliminate the surprise element on the day of the move.

We offer a virtual inventory system, which achieves the same thing, but at the fraction of the effort.

Yes, you can keep light bulbs in your lamps when you move; however, your movers may ask you to remove them if they are at risk of breaking. To minimize hassle and the risk of broken glass, it’s advisable that you use a box divider to separate them, or pack them with ample packing foam.
