Your Loading and Unloading Solutions 




Services We Provide


DIRECT LUMPER SERVICE Inc. specializes in palatalizing floor-loaded freight from your containers, trailers and boxcars. We take pride in providing a professional and efficient alternative to your labour needs in the loading and unloading of your loose freight by offering skilled workers and a set flat rate per load, taking the guesswork out of your time and costs per load. Our clients can expect a much faster container clearance. Whether you have one warehouse or several within the GTA, we can service them all.


Our rates are based on the size (for example 20 feet, 40 feet, & 53 feet containers), piece count and the number of sorts per load giving you foresight into your costs even before we start the load.  Our lumpers are paid in accordance to the load and not by the amount of time spent on the load, thus cutting lag time and increasing efficiency. We are very flexible and therefore we can customize your needs to your requirements and specifications.


You simply let us know as little as a day before that you require our services and we will have experienced and professional workers at your place of business at the time you specify ready to get the job done for you.


We invoice you per load/job leaving you free from hiring any employees and all the paperwork and headaches that go along with it. You are only billed for the work performed and you will know exactly what we charge upfront with no hidden costs or fees.


If you do not need our services in between jobs, there is no cost to you. We can accommodate your workload on a daily, weekly, monthly or annual basis.   No job is too small or too big for us to handle. There are no contracts or commitments to tie you down either and you can cancel anytime with no penalties.


We carry W.S.I.B. coverage and liability insurance as well as aim to maintain a safe working environment for everyone. All we ask is that you try our service and see for yourself.

Steps for finding the Right Lumper Service


A Lumper Service is a 3rd party company that generally is on site that provides unloading services and other services to warehouse and distribution facilities. There are several lumper service companies. Some are on a national level and some on a local level. When looking to outsource your warehouse needs, you should do due diligence on the company you are working with. Most customers go with price when choosing a service. But what some fail to realize is most of the time you get what you pay for and although it might be cheap up front, it could be costly on the back end.


A lumper service can be a huge plus to your company. They can cut overtime hours, assist you in day to day operation of your business and back you up when you are short handed. If the lumpers are not productive, it reflects on their payroll so they have a huge incentive to move fast. Here are a few pointers to look for when choosing the right lumper service for your warehouse.


  • They pay on productivity so you always get the job done in a timely manner.
  • Check how many years they have been in business. You can get a good idea of their track record by longevity.
  • Check what type of volume they are use to dealing with. If they have customers in large warehouses this is a good sign of experience. How long have they been at these large warehouses?
  • Verify their safety program and do they carry W.S.I.B. coverage.  You would be surprised how many home based lumper services do not carry any W.S.I.B coverage.  Again, if the price is low, there is a reason.  Should a worker get injured on your property, you will be responsible if the lumer service does not have W.I.S.B. coverage. 


A Lumper Service can provide great benefits to your warehouse and business. Just make sure you do your homework and take the necessary steps to make it a great relationship for your future partnership.
