How can I find a reliable mover?

I am looking for a mover to help me move into my new house later next month in the Scarborough/Markham area. Does anyone has a good mover to recommend? If you have recently engaged a mover who has done a good/reasonable job for you, please let me know!

Alternatively, I'll be happy to know of a good source of information for movers advertisement.

A few ppl have been trying to discourage me from getting a mover, and to instead move it myself (with friends) as a result of their bad experiences with movers with bad attitudes, unprofessional handling of furnitures, some with hidden charges, etc. I'm sure someone out there must have had a good or at least acceptable level of work done for them by a mover.

Thanks.

Well, I've run into different theories on this. The one I like to follow is once you've turned 30, getting your friends to move you is out. Hire a mover. Now, of course if you have freinds that are interested and offering, I'd certainly manipulate the situation and milk them for all they're worth. However, if nobody is chomping at the bit, I'd leave it and hire the mover. It's so funny since I've turned 30, my friends are hurting themselves in the funniest ways. My buddy that I grew up with told me the other day he hurt his back getting out of the car. We're getting so old......Damn bodies.

Not to sound like a cheerleader for the better business bureau, but anyone you are going to hire, you should check them out first. One woman I know hired some guys who damaged a fair amount of her furniture, some of which was antique. She called the BBB and was told that they had lots of complaints about those guys, and she should have checked before she hired them.

My two cents. Argh. Just strained my finger reaching for the shift key. Damn old bones.
