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 receive 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 container, you can count on us.

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

Suzanne P.

We used First Rate Movers to move my mother from her home into a seniors’ residence. Matt was very helpful and though he was booked on our designated day, he was able to arrange for some trusted contractors. The move itself went extremely well and in the end it cost a bit less than the estimate. Todd and Zack we’re great: very efficient, courteous, friendly, and took very good care of all my mother’s things. In other words, true professionals! The furniture was very carefully wrapped and placed in the truck; equal care was taken unloading the truck and unwrapping things. Todd offered great advice on furniture placement and both were very patient and accommodating in trying out various possibilities before we found the right one. They also very kindly helped me bring in a carload of items that would have taken me over an hour… done in a fraction of the time! My mother and I are both very impressed with the reliability and quality of the service this company offers and would not hesitate to recommend it to others.

I was very pleased with the service I received from First Rate movers. Very quick response to emails and phone calls. ***, **** and **** were very friendly and went above and beyond their duties. I have moved a number of times, including overseas, and this has been a very positive experience from start to finish. Everything was done in an extremely professional manner, by an extremely professional crew. I highly recommend their services.

I contacted First Rate Movers after reading reviews on this site and elsewhere. I knew I HAD to deal with this company and I am sure glad I did. I have moved a number of times, including long distances, and this has been the BEST experience ever, from start to finish. Everything was done in an extremely professional manner, by an extremely professional crew. I followed their moving tips/instructions, which helped the team shave an entire hour off the estimate I was given. I would have NO HESITATION whatsoever recommending First Rate Movers and would use them again at the drop of a hat. Anyone needing moving services, should look no further and use this company.
