There are some excellent moving companies in Toronto and the GTA, offering a whole range of services. Some Toronto movers will do all the work from start to finish, including packing all your belongings into boxes, loading them, transporting, and then unloading and unpacking on the other side.
Others are more affordable moving companies that essentially just transport your goods from one apartment to the next.

Does the company's insurance plan cover overnight or multi-day moves?
