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.

Sometimes you get rain, other times snow, and sometimes a mixture of everything all at once. That’s why you should always contact a professional moving service when you need to Read More…

*** and **** did a fantastic job for our move on May 27. They were curteous and demonstrated professionalism. What we paid for our move was definitely worth it and I would recommend your company to anyone.

Marilyn S.

A great moving experience with absolutely no stress. **** and ***** were confident, patient and with great skill and consideration swiftly moved our belongings from one home to the other. I would not hesitate to recommend First Rate Movers ..Thank You again.

Moving day is always a stressful day. I booked a move from a 2 bedroom apartment (with LOTS of stuff) to a new townhouse with First Rate Movers, and I can honestly say that my experience was absolutely fantastic! I don’t normally write reviews, but after dealing with First Rate Movers, I felt the need to let others know how great they are. The two movers arrived 20 minutes early to prepare the truck and to get an idea of what kind of furniture I had, how many boxes, etc. They were extremely professional and it was completely obvious that they had worked as a team before – they are two exceptionally hard working guys! They emptied the apartment in record time, wrapped all the fragile pieces of furniture with blankets and even provided a wardrobe box for clothing on hangers. They were talking 3 heavy boxes of books at a time, not just one box each load… After leaving the apartment, they arrived at the townhouse just after I did.
