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.

Need to Make your Move During the Winter?

When you need to move, you often don’t get to pick the time of year or the type of weather conditions that you’re faced with. 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…

Two days after Christmas 2016 and the morning after freezing rain, ***** and **** arrived at my place to discover that they would have to park at the top of my driveway which slanted down to the front door. (Even with lots of sand on the driveway, there was a strong possibility that the truck wouldn’t be able to get out of the driveway if it was parked there). This also meant that they would have to walk back and forth from the house to the truck carrying my belongings. Both young men were punctual,friendly, professional, and very efficient. They had me moved in no time. I will gladly recommend First Rate Movers to relatives, friends and colleagues.

I was extremely happy with my experience with Furst Rate Movers Inc. moving is normally very stressful but they made it very easy. They were very polite, professional, friendly, and worked extremely hard. I will definitely recommend them and use them in the future!

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.

Preparing Household Appliances for a Move

When it comes to packing for a move, the last items that normally get packed are your appliances. Since these are not only the most used, but also usually the most expensive items you will be moving, you want to ensure they are well protected during transportation. You also want to avoid any mold or Read More…
