Ottawa’s most trusted and reliable moving company
First Rate Movers in Ottawa offers professional hoisting of couches, beds, and other furniture items can’t fit through stairways or entrance ways.
Hoisting furniture can be dangerous if done improperly. Don’t risk injury to yourself or others by attempting to hoist beds, sofas, or other items of furniture without the proper equipment. Not only can personal injury occur but the furniture being hoisted can often be damaged in the process.
Our employees are protected by WSIB and trained how to safely and effectively hoist furniture. Furniture is covered for full replacement value through our cargo insurance. Furniture is padded/wrapped and proper hoisting straps are used. In most cases, hoisting will require the use of safety harnesses, which the crew will have available to them.
We hoist items to a maximum of 50 feet or 3 stories of a building. Where hoisting can not be safely performed, furniture elevators, scissor lifts, or cranes may be employed to accomplish the task.
Leave the heavy lifting to us! We have the experienced crews and the best equipment to get the furniture hoisting job done right!
See our Table of Surcharges for typical hoisting rates. Due to the many variables that can affect the hoisting process, these figures may vary depending on individual circumstances and difficulty of access. Additional costs will apply when motorized equipment is required to lift items.
