Small Moves with Toronto Star Express Movers

The Cargo Cabbie Express Moving Service division has seen many requests come in from our valued clients for small moves in Toronto. Very often we get calls from customers who are looking for help moving a single piece of furniture and are looking for single-item movers. Fortunately, as a reliable full-service moving company, we offer options unlike other moving companies, who tend to charge a minimum of three hours on any type of small move or furniture pick-up and delivery within the local downtown area. The cost for this type of move is often out of reach for those looking for assistance with small moves, as well as last-minute furniture pick-ups and deliveries.

As Cargo Cabbie Professional Movers, every single one of us has years of proven superior-quality experience and is ready to provide a unique type of moving service to all Torontonians.

As a leading local moving company in Toronto, On., we understand the need for more small moving companies Toronto. In response to the demand, we launched Cargo Cabbie Express Moving Services three years ago, which has been welcomed by joyous locals across the GTA. Cargo Cabbie Express is especially dedicated to fulfilling your small-moving and same-day delivery service needs.

Local Small Moving Companies vs Big Franchises

Moves come in all shapes and sizes. Some moves are of full houses and necessitate large trucks, while others may only need partial moving services, such furniture delivery or simply moving a single piece of furniture. Small moving companies may come in handy and are extremely convenient when you require:

  • Small Deliveries
  • Same-Day Furniture Pick-up and Delivery
  • IKEA Furniture Delivery and Assembly Services
  • Single-Item Moves – “Couch Moving”
  • Mattress Delivery
  • Appliance Delivery
  • Small Truck Movers

Let our small movers in Toronto help you move from point A to point B hassle-free

Things to consider when booking a last-minute, same-day small move:

  • Make a list of items for your small move.
  • Verify the pick-up and delivery addresses.
  • Confirm the date and time for your move.
  • Note details about stairs, elevator reservations, loading dock access, narrow paths, parking, walking distances, and anything else that can impact the move.
  • Be sure to read through your contract and pay the moving deposit to secure the move date.

After all is booked, the Cargo Cabbie Express Moving Services team will meet you at the pick-up location in uniform, well prepared, and happy to help with your small move or furniture delivery.

  • Access: Make sure you are aware of any access issues before contacting our moving coordinators. Note where a vehicle can park. How far from the door the vehicle will be. How many stairs there are and any other access issues. Note this for the drop-off location as well.
  • Be Prepared: If in a condo building, know what the management’s rules are for deliveries, if you have to book an elevator, and if there are any time restrictions. If on a major street, note if there are times when parking is prohibited. Clear access to the items to be moved and if need be, give it a quick clean. If it’s a device that needs to be unplugged or drained, do so before the crew arrives.
  • What to Expect: After booking with our moving coordinators, expect the crew to show up on time and ready to go. Our friendly and professional movers will introduce themselves, assess the rooms and items to be moved, and strategize a plan of action. Crews will protect floors with rubber floor runners and boot covers for their shoes. Then the items will be properly wrapped with the appropriate equipment at our disposal (e.g., blankets, tape, shrink wrap, cardboard) and carefully moved to the vehicle. Once in the vehicle, it is properly secured and ready to go.
  • Drop-Off: Cargo Cabbie’s crew will assess driving time to the drop-off location and either meet you or your contact at the destination point. Ensure there is someone present to direct the crew as to where the items are going. The items will be safely moved to the location and the job is done!

Why You Should Stay Away From Cheap Toronto Movers

We understand that moving can be expensive, and you’d want to save on costs wherever possible. However, there are some aspects of your move – such as hiring professional movers – that you should never compromise just to save a few bucks. Cheap moving services may seem extremely appealing at first, but they almost always come at a cost – literally. When you hire cheap Toronto movers through classified ads or other non-legitimate avenues, there is no guarantee that your items will be insured or properly and safely transported to their destination. Ultimately, this could mean that you will lose time and money – or even the very items that you are trying to move. Here are the top reasons why you should avoid cheap Toronto moving companies:

  • Liability: Many cheap Toronto movers charge lower rates because they don’t offer the same type of liability and insurance as professional moving companies. Cargo Cabbie is fully licensed, insured, and bonded, so you can relax during the move knowing that your possessions are in good hands.
  • Reliability: When you opt for cheap moving services, you don’t really know what to expect. Most of them don’t have established reputations, so reliability and accountability are not always a given. Make sure you hire a trustworthy moving company, so you know they’ll show up and that they’ll take care – and responsibility – of your belongings.
  • There isn’t always a do-over: Most of us have personal items that are invaluable and irreplaceable, such as family heirlooms, sentimental items, and one-of-a-kind collectibles. Professional movers may cost more at the start, but “cheap moves” almost always end up costing you more in the end. When it comes to moving irreplaceable items, there is no take two if mistakes are made or if the objects are lost or broken. It’s just not worth the risk!

Now relax, your move is in good hands.
