Many resources are available to determine whether a mover is reputable. The Canadian Association of Movers (CAM), the Better Business Bureau, and any of the major national van lines are all good resources. Also check out the Consumer Beware page through the Ontario Ministry of Consumer Services for movers to avoid.
