Long Distance Movers
“I would like to comment on what an excellent move we had with your company today. Wayne, David and Derek did a super job! All 3 were extremely helpful and incredibly efficient. They are very nice young men. Please let them know how pleased we were with the service.” — Leslie G.
The key to a successful long distance move in Canada is careful planning. Bronte Movers makes the job easier. We are a team of seasoned professionals who move residences and offices every day. What may seem like an overwhelming task to some, is all in a day’s work for us. Whether you are moving to or from Toronto, we’re more than equipped to help you out.
Charges for your long distance move in Canada are based on the weight and volume of the items being moved, the distance they are moved, plus optional services such as moving a piano or hot tub. These charges will always be clearly outlined when you are reviewing your estimate with one of our moving specialists.
Full Service Move
A full service move saves you time and gives you peace of mind as your professionally packed items will be covered under our insurance. Please note that items we do not pack cannot be covered by our insurance. Our team has the training and experience to properly and securely pack all your belongings, from electronics to antique furniture. We’re a proud agent of Great Canadian Van Lines.
Partial Packing Service
Our partial packing service gives you the option of doing some of the packing yourself, which will lower your total moving cost. We carry a full range of do-it-yourself packing supplies. If you plan to do some or most of the packing yourself, start as early as possible and keep in mind that packing will take more time than you expect.
All valuables and irreplaceable personal items should be packed separately and ideally transported with you, rather than in the moving van. Items of this nature are not covered by our insurance.
In addition, for any move the following preparations are necessary:
- Make travel arrangements for you and your family to get to your new residence, perhaps by car or airplane. Pets cannot be transported in the moving van so please include them in your family’s travel plans.
- Research your new city. The internet is an excellent source of city and neighborhood guides.
- Sort and redistribute unwanted items. Many charitable organizations have convenient pick-up services. Holding a garage sale is another popular option. Remember to look through your basement, attic, garage, shed, storage locker, etc.
- Service appliances professionally. Internal damage can be avoided when appliances have been properly prepared for moving. Remember that refrigerators cannot be plugged in for at least one hour after they have been put in their new location to allow the coolant to settle.
- Empty your liquid fuel powered lawn mower, snow-blower and weed trimmer. Flammable, explosive and hazardous materials cannot be transported in the moving van. Please Contact Us regarding any questions about whether or not a material is considered hazardous.
- Non-hazardous liquids will be packed separately and clearly marked so they do not spill and cause damage.
- Take down curtains, blinds, paintings and other items affixed to your walls.

“John and I would like to thank you and your staff so very much for all your kind assistance. Your company came highly recommended and fortunately we trusted our source. We bought our boxes even before we had a quote from you. Then came the quote, more boxes, the actual move and returning the empties. From the office staff to the movers to whoever happened to be helping out, we can’t say enough about the GREAT service we received! It is one thing to boast that customers are #1 but another to follow through. Thank you again! We won’t hesitate to recommend your company and if/when we ever move again, guaranteed, we will be in touch!” – Julie Sherwood and John Simoes
