I have used this company for moving twice, and they have given me the best per-hour rate out of all the movers I got quotes from. Plus the workers are understanding, easy to work with, and know what they're doing. Keep reading for price and details.
They have a 2 hour minimum, but any 1 bedroom or higher would take way more than 2 hours. My latest move, in December 2022, was from a 1 bedroom unit (mattress, bedframe, bookshelf, small dining table, 4 chairs, desk, coffee table, kitchen island on wheels, office chair, large TV and TV stand, plus about 10 boxes) into a basement apt 5 minutes away. It took a long time to wrap all the furniture (2.5-3 hours), and then to unload it all into a basement apt. Altogther the move took around 6 hours or so, and cost about $1200 CAD. It was quite expensive but moving furniture into a basement apartment is ridiculously hard. Keep in mind, paying with cash is a flat rate (but you won't get an invoice), but debit card has tax added, and credit card has tax plus a fee.
Note that they do charge a lot for materials - Packing paper was $40 CAD for me, and I needed only a little (I have a big heavy stack leftover), and a mattress protector was $20. Get these yourself beforehand if you can. But certainly get their TV case if you have a TV to move. That was my biggest fear since their liability only pays you back based on the weight of the item damaged, not its actual value in any way. I don't know if that is standard, but it is how they, and one other company I asked a quote from do it.
My first move was a moving from downtown Toronto to North York, a single bedroom (1 mattress, a couch, a bookshelf, a large desk, a chest of drawers, plus boxes I packed myself) into a 1 bedroom unit with 2 stops along the way, and that cost me $594.53 CAD in 2020. It was an great rate considering my stops were in to a storage unit on the West side of Toronto and, Etobicoke.
