The cost of a long-distance move within Ontario is broken into two parts:
The savings realized by taking part in this type of move are the result of a reduction in travel charges due to other parties, moving to Toronto or returning to Ottawa, absorbing a portion of the cost.
For an average trip to move a customer to Toronto, the travel charge would usually be around $2350 depending on the size of the truck involved. In a consolidated trip, a moving customer could expect to save as much as 30% off of the regular travel charge.
A small two-bedroom apartment usually takes around 5 hours of labour to load to and from the moving truck. At an average rate of $175 per hour, $875 would be the labour portion of the moving cost. This size move would fit in the 20′ truck for which the travel charge would normally be around $2350 or so. On a regular move then, this customer could expect to pay $3225 to move their apartment. However, the customer is flexible on the moving date and books a crew to move them to Toronto as part of a consolidated trip. The travel charge is reduced by almost 30% which saves them $700 off the total cost of the move. They end up paying $2525 instead of $3225 to move items for a two-bedroom apartment.
