Why this company is recommended by our experts

Discount Moving may not offer the most discounted rates as their name states, but their superior service will make you feel like you got the best value for your money. In fact, the owners, David and Roman, are personally in charge of customer service, making them some of the most hands on moving company owners we know.

Offering various types of residential moves, Discount Moving’s specialities include senior moves along with hoisting and moving very large items that are tricky to move for the average person. For instance, if you have an item that won’t fit through the front door, they can hoist it through a window.

Additionally, hiring this company is especially convenient if you need a last-minute move, as they have a special ‘’emergency moving’’ process in place for this.

  • Packing supplies
  • Storage

Why this company is recommended by our experts

With an impressive 30-man crew, Flex Déménagement is the ideal solution for large moves. In addition, this moving company offers basic insurance at $2.00 per pound of broken item, which covers more than the standard for other movers.

They also offer a unique service, allowing you to purchase your packing supplies online and have them delivered directly to your home.

For very heavy items that cannot be disassembled over 600 lbs (Ex: grand pianos, safes, pool tables, very large gym equipment), this company is not the best option as they are less specialized in this area.

Other authorities in the Canadian Moving industry

What’s the BBB?

BBB stands for Better Business Bureau and is a North American organization whose mission is to help buyers and sellers trust each other.

Frequently asked questions

We calculate the moving quotes based on a few factors: the distance between your old and new address, the hourly cost of labor, the total relocation time, and possible special item fees (bulky or highly valuable items). 

Some companies have additional truck fees or include the distance from their warehouse to your residences, which will also be included in the cost. Moving quotes are only estimates based on average move duration; your final cost may vary if your overall move took longer than projected.

Prior to your move, your booking agent will collect key information about your move, including an exhaustive list of your home inventory. Your agent will then calculate and review multiple quotes from Waldo Verified professional movers on your behalf. Once you made your choice, your booking agent will coordinate with the movers to book your move.

After your move, they will guide you through using the many additional moving resources on the platform, finalizing payment, and speaking to your mover on your behalf.

We are proud to say that our reviews are not sponsored, and we have independently evaluated all the companies that we recommend.
