Movelinx is the free online moving marketplace that connects you to hundreds of moving companies across Canada. In just a few easy steps, you’ll be able to search, compare, and hire professional movers based on their availability, competitive pricing, real customer reviews, and their overall service rating.
Whether it’s transporting a single oversized item or a whole house of furniture, you will find a host of reliable local movers waiting to respond to your logistic needs. And because we carefully screen all service providers, you can be sure they are properly qualified to handle and transport your goods, safely and efficiently.
Movelinx is the first platform of its kind in Canada, with a price comparison and customer feedback rating system dedicated to the moving industry. We are continually expanding our network of service providers so as to provide you with the best moving services in the market.
Behind every successful idea is a vision, and ours is one that seeks to make a positive change in the moving industry, by creating a greater awareness and transparency of its service delivery and pricing.
We understand the limitations faced by consumers when it comes to assessing movers and the unethical practices they sometimes encounter with unscrupulous operators and we recognize the need to improve customer experience within the moving industry by offering customer support in an integrated system. This led us to develop Movelinx, Canada’s first online platform where consumers can search, hire, and share reviews of their engagement with movers.
Movelinx was designed to introduce a healthy competition into the logistics market, which leads to better price deals for customers. Our priority is to make moving services truly affordable to everyone while rewarding honest moving companies with the high customer ratings they deserve. For these reasons, we keep our commissions low for each transaction passed through our system and put our focus on customer satisfaction.
At Movelinx, we want to create a useful platform to connect customers with reliable movers, and to serve the community with integrity.
At Movelinx, we are driven by a strong desire to serve the community, by offering a service in which consumers can benefit from a system of pricing transparency and information sharing.
Our mission is focused on saving consumers time and money when it comes to moving bulky items that require special transportation and delivery. We do our part by vetting movers and moving companies, performing accreditation and insurance checks, so as to ensure only trusted movers are listed.
By integrating the services of the entire moving industry into one convenient location, we aim to become the first point of contact for all your logistic needs.
Movelinx is the online marketplace that makes your moving and delivery process easier and more transparent. Just enter your job details, compare prices and reviews, choose a verified mover and book.
We make the hiring process as easy as booking flights or ordering a pizza online. No more searching on the internet, calling multiple movers, and filling out request forms to get a quote.
All our Service Providers go through a rigorous verification process and adhere to our strict service standards, so you can rest assured that your move will be handled with care and professionalism.
The funds held in escrow will be released to Service Providers only after the satisfactory completion of the job. Our team will be there for you throughout the entire process.
Movelinx takes the pain and frustration out of the process of hiring movers and transporters. We first conduct thorough checks to ensure all our Service Providers are trustworthy and qualified for the job. We then collect and store their rates in our database. When searching for a mover on Movelinx, a list of available Service Providers is provided instantaneously with their rates and reviews so you can easily compare and make an informed decision to choose the right provider.
Movelinx is the best place to get to know each mover and gather honest and accurate information about them.
You don't need to have an account to book through Movelinx, an account will automatically be created for you once your order is placed so you can track the status of your order.
At this time, we offer the following two services:
- Full moving service: this service allows customers to hire movers on a per hour basis as they would usually do through any of the traditional channels. Using the parameters entered by the customer, an estimate of the total cost will be provided but the final charges will be based on the actual billable service time.
- Delivery / Transportation: the service is geared towards customers who need to transport oversized items such as furniture and home appliances. This will be especially valuable for customers who purchase a secondhand piece of furniture or any other oversized household item in store or online and need to bring it back home. As this is not a full service, the customer is expected to prepare the items and be ready when their Service Provider arrives as well as help the driver load and unload the transported items.
More services will soon be made available, if you have any suggestions or would like to request new features, please let us know!
No. Booking through Movelinx is free. We only charge our Service Providers a referral fee once the job is completed. In order to minimize the financial burden on our users, we have implemented a low fee of just $5 per transaction to sustain our operations and continually improve our services.

To encourage competition and cheaper prices, we let Service Providers set their own rates. An algorithm at the core of our service uses the collected rates to generate quotes.
Movelinx is a matching service, we make the comparison and hiring process easy and transparent. Our Service Providers carry their own insurance and we insure that their Certificate of Insurance (COI) is valid and current. We also send you a copy of their certificate when you place your order.
Absolutely not! Unless the information you provided is inaccurate or it is determined that the service is not being used as described, the price quotes are final. Transparency and trust are paramount; we have a strict policy against hidden fees, price changes and any other unprofessional schemes.
When you request the "hourly moving service", a payment of 2 hours will be collected when your order is placed. When the service is completed, the total number of hours worked will be calculated and the remaining amount (based on the quoted rate) can be paid directly to your service provider via any payment method they have available. For transportation services, the full amount quoted will be paid when the order is placed.
Any funds we collect will be held in an escrow account pending service completion; if the order is cancelled, the amount can be refunded as per our refund policy.
You do not need to do anything. We do the work for you!
On the day of your service, we confirm your appointment with your service provider. If they cancel or become unavailable to deliver the service, we will immediately reassign the service to another provider that closely matches your selection criteria. Service providers are discouraged from cancelling orders after they are accepted; a note is added to their account and their ratings are affected.

We estimate that booking your move through Movelinx can be up to 45% cheaper than conventional channels.
There are, however, a few more ways you can save money on moving and transportation services. Our blog is a great place to find money saving tips.
Here are a few basic guidelines:
- Avoid the busiest days of the month (1st, 15th, 30th and 31st).
- Book at least two weeks in advance in the spring, fall, and winter; and at least four weeks in advance in the summer.
- Be handy. Pack and unpack things yourself.
- Be as organized as possible on your service day.
Furniture assembly and disassembly is only available under the "hourly moving service"; your service provider is paid by the hour and this service is included. This service is not available under the "transportation" service.
Reviews are an important part of the Movelinx community. Once the service is delivered, you will be able to provide your Service Provider with some helpful feedback and help others in your community make a more informed decision when hiring them.
