First Rate Movers Inc – Ottawa Movers

Ottawa movers moving Ottawa since 2003. We are respected as one of the best moving companies in Ottawa due to our professionalism, attention to detail, concern for customers’ belongings and property, and ability to do the job right. Uniformed First Rate Movers arrive on time, alert, properly equipped and ready to perform to the high standards demanded by our customers.

You can be confident that our crews will be prepared with tools, bed bags, couch wrap, wardrobe boxes, clean moving blankets, floor runners, and all other equipment necessary to safely protect your belongings and property during your move. Confidence in our ability to provide a first rate professional moving service allows us to include $250,000 of full replacement value insurance in our rates for all full-service moves. This is far superior to the limited coverage “protection policy” offered by other Ottawa moving companies.

The reason our moving company stands out from the crowd is not just our commitment to excellent service but also the pride our movers take in their work. Unlike many Ottawa Movers, we hire only full-time employees – no part-timers or day labour. Our professional Ottawa movers are well paid, WSIB-covered, and recieve overtime, holiday pay, vacation pay, and other benefits. This attracts superior movers and results in greater effort from more content and dedicated employees. You can take comfort in knowing that our Ottawa moving company is bonded, a top-rated Honour Roll member of the Better Business Bureau, and is certified by the Canadian Association of Movers.

Whether you want a full-service moving company to handle your relocation or just need movers to help load or unload a rental moving truck or PODS container, you can count on us.

…Don’t settle for less than First Rate Movers.
