Local Movers

Are you moving to a new home or a new community? Whether you are moving across the street or a few towns over, our local movers are ready to help make your move go as smoothly as possible.

We offer highly specialized, unparalleled local moving services. When you hire Tender Touch, you can count on a uniformed, friendly, courteous, professional crew in one of our branded trucks to arrive at your home on the day of the move – on time, barring weather or traffic conditions, with a clean and fully equipped truck for all your moving needs. Your local move includes the use of a truck on moving day, four complimentary wardrobes and four large picture cartons, as well as two complimentary shrink wraps and two new mattress bags to prevent soiling.

Our local movers always take care to protect your home and your possessions. We will bring 16 rubber floor runners to protect your hardwood, ceramic and carpeted floors; banister rail coverings to protect your railings and sufficient furniture blankets to protect your furniture, which we wrap and unwrap in the home, preventing damage while the furniture is being carried to and from the truck. In addition, all furniture with glass will be further protected with cardboard on top of the pad, in the areas where the glass is located.

Tender Touch Moving & Storage is a Certified Mover with the Canadian Association of Movers, the highest standard achievable within the association. In addition, we are an accredited business with the Better Business Bureau, since 1998 with an A+ rating, and have been an integral part of their reliability program.

Travel Time

Local moves are based on an hourly rate and depend on the time of the month plus travel time. Travel time is the time it takes to arrive at your residence from our warehouse and the time it takes to return once the job has been completed. Within the Greater Toronto area, we have a minimum of one-hour travel time. Outside the city limits, travel time will vary depending on the distance of the move.

During our peak periods, a deposit may be required to secure your booking.

The above costs are only estimates and may vary depending on the size of the home, the weather, traffic conditions, and organization on the customer’s part and especially on the access to the residence.

When booking an afternoon time slot, we can only give an estimated start time. Actual start time will depend on the completion of the prior move.

Local services are offered only within the Greater Golden Horseshoe, which is approximately 1 hr in each direction from Toronto and would include any moves going up to 12 hrs drive to or from these locations.
