Frequently Asked Questions
Moving with IN & OUT:
We have flat rate moving, which will include any travel fees, material costs or service fees.
This rate will be quoted to you on the phone or by email.
After that, we charge by the half-hour, at a clear and reasonable rate. No funny stuff – and no surprises. Just great service.
Here’s how we are different:
Unlike other moving companies who charge you ‘dock to dock’ fees-charging you for the time ‘it may’ take them to get there.
Plus, our movers don’t ‘milk the clock’ or take their time. Everyone of our clients is amazed at how quick we work. Your things are moved safely and efficiently, in way less time then other companies. We take pride in this. And it’s because of this work ethic that we book mostly through referral.

Your moving time will depend on a few key components:
How much stuff you have
The obvious factor is the amount of stuff you have. The number of boxes, pieces of furniture,or delicacy of certain items are main factors.
Packing and Organization.
We’ve seen whole houses get moved in literally a few hours and conversely small apartments take ages.’ Packing and organization are the keys to a quick-and even cheap move.
**Using medium, to larger sized boxes of a similar size makes for easy carrying, easy transport on dollies, and easy packing into the truck.
**Keep a clear workspace. This allows us to move quickly and efficiently, and keeps a safe working space.
How far you have to travel.
Toronto traffic and distance are the main factors to consider in local moving and relocation. The time of day will certainly account for how long it will take between pick-up and drop-off. If possible plan your Toronto move before or after rush hours. We don’t mind early starts to avoid congestion on the roads and highways.
Furniture and items that require assembly, disassembly, or a lot of maneuvering will add to the moving time.
Pianos, pool tables, oversized armoires, and appliances will also consume a bit more time as well. In really challenging situations two men may not be enough. In these cases it’s advised to use additional movers to speed things up, and in turn, save on your overall bill. Also, consider disassembly of your furniture prior to your movers arrival to cut down on your moving time.
