Why Choose Boyd?
Dedicated to Excellence Since 1947
Boyd offers almost every moving or storage service you can think of, and we provide a level of service that most companies simply do
- A seamless moving experience. Our unparalleled 70+ years of experience means we have time-tested methods and processes for ensuring successful moves, no matter how far you’re going. Our in-house relocation and shipping specialists plan your move, and can even help you with the paperwork for international moves. There’s always a single point of contact at origin and destination, and our computerized system tracks your move online every step of the way.
- Local, national, or international moving. Because we are a member of United Van Lines, we can provide a consistent moving experience throughout Canada and the US. As members of United, we have a say in how their systems work, and thanks to our expertise and that of other top moving companies, they’ve been named one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies. We have the resources to coordinate your move anywhere across North America or internationally. As an added bonus, long-distance moves can earn you Air Miles® reward miles.
- Great people and great service. We have a knack for attracting and retaining great people, and that shines through in the kind of service they provide. Our employees, many of whom have been with us for 20 years or more, take pride in providing high-quality and reliable moving, storage and shipping services for every client, every time. From the moving planners to the moving teams, they’re all trained career professionals who wear uniforms and are security cleared and bonded. Ongoing training workshops and spot checks by our leadership team (including the owners!) ensure that every item on the list gets checked. Meet our

- A variety of storage options for homes and businesses. Boyd’s storage warehouse is a “class A” facility that is protected with alarm systems and has government security clearance. For secure storage right on your premises, we also offer DIY storage containers that fit on your driveway or in your parking lot.
- Buy your moving and packing supplies from the source. It’s a well-kept secret that all the moving and storage companies buy from us, and of course add their own markup. You’ll find lower prices and the most complete selection of moving supplies and rental equipment right here.
- Great warehousing and inventory services for businesses. We know that businesses want to focus on selling products, not deal with inventory details. We already have the space, the equipment, and the trained team to manage warehousing and inventory, so working with us takes costs and risk off your plate.
- Bilingual team. We would be happy to help you in either English or French.
- Peace of mind. We are fully insured for your protection.
- We give back to the community. We’ve moved many charitable organizations to new homes. Learn more about what we do in the community >
