If you like being close to the hustle and bustle of the city but still enjoy taking a quiet stroll in the park with your dog, Etobicoke might just be the place for you. Picture a life where you can keep your city job (without a crazy commute) and live minutes away from the beach.
The name of the city of Etobicoke is phonetically based on the Obijiwa word “Wadopika,” which means “there are alder trees.” The K is silent, so Etobicoke is pronounced eh-tow-bee-ko. You will want to get this right to fit in with the locals.
Etobicoke is popular with families because of the great schools, but it’s close enough to the city to not be considered ‘the burbs.’ Shop at Sherway Gardens and play at Centennial Park. If you like to travel, you are minutes away from Toronto Pearson International Airport.
It’s no surprise that Etobicoke is a popular choice for people that love the city but also love peace and quiet. If you are making a move to Etobicoke, we are sure you will be happy with your choice. We love Etobicoke too. At Torex, we have been helping people move in and around Etobicoke since 1998.
Moving can be overwhelming. You need to pack everything you own into boxes and then into a truck only to reverse the process when you get to your new home. We would like to help. We know moving can be stressful, but our trained staff can reduce your moving stress.
Some worry they can’t afford to hire a professional Etobicoke Movers. Others have heard moving company horror stories and want to save themselves from being ripped off. Don’t let the actions of unscrupulous moving companies stop you from getting the help you need for your next move.

HOW TO CHOOSE A MOVING COMPANY?
The first thing you should do when choosing a moving company is research. Find out which Etobicoke Movers are familiar with the area. How long have they been in business? What is their reputation in the community? Contact a few moving companies to get quotes. Take note of the staff while you get the quote. Are they friendly? Do you get the impression they genuinely want to help you with your move?
Once you have a few quotes, you can see if a company is overpriced or suspiciously underpriced. You will also have the first impression of what working with the Etobicoke moving company will be like. Remember, you are entrusting these movers with all of your precious belongings. Ask yourself if you feel comfortable with that.

ADDITIONAL SERVICES OFFERED BY TOREX ETOBICOKE MOVERS
- Piano Moves
This process needs to be accomplished by trained specialists. An untrained mover can damage a piano. Torex has been moving pianos for over 10 years. Torex’ Etobicoke movers receive extensive training before they are allowed to move a piano. Special packing material is used. These include:
- Specialized Straps Designed to Secure the Piano During Transport
- Piano Dollies and Jacks
- Protective Floor Runners
- Stairwell and Wall Protection
- Pool Table Relocation
Pool tables need to be disassembled before transport. Each item needs to be carefully wrapped and secured. Breakage of some components can render a pool or billiards table useless. Torex has the specialists and equipment necessary to safely move your pool or billiards table.
- Additional Insurance
We provide basic insurance for every move. If you have specialty items such as a piano or pool table or expensive items such as antiques or artwork, you may want to purchase additional insurance for these items. Please contact our friendly office staff to get a free insurance quote.
- Single Item Moving
Some moving companies have a minimum requirement before they show up for a move. At Torex, we understand that sometimes you just need a few items moved. Perhaps you need something taken out or put into storage, or maybe you just need an extra set of hands to move furniture around the house. We can help. If the entire moving process takes 1.5 hours or less and is under 20 km, we can do it for $100. Our movers’ work and the truck are included in the price.
- Flat-Rate or Hourly Moves Available
Estimates can be provided for hourly moves based on the distance of your move and an approximation of how much stuff you will be moving. A final bill will include any extra time spent in traffic or possibly disassembling and reassembling unexpected items for transport. Flat-Rate quotes are fixed-priced moves. You know exactly how much your move will cost with no surprise charges.
- Portable Storage Containers
We can provide you with a mobile storage container. You can pack the trailer yourself or hire our packing specialists to help. The trailer can be stored in our safe compound or at the location of your choice. We have no minimum storage requirement. As a bonus, we offer a free month of storage for every contract of a year or longer.
