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.

My wife & I, wish to sincerely thank you for turning around our most horrific day. It was June 30th, 2006 when the moving company originally scheduled to move us, NEVER showed up. We were hopelessly trying to find a moving company that would be willing to move us on such short notice. With no Read More…

I had a very good experience with First Rate Movers. They were punctual, diligent and willing to accommodate my needs. They were also able to compensate for a complication on the arrival date, and overall went above and beyond my expectations.

This company is incredible with every aspect of this service. I have used other companies and First Rate is miles above to say the least. They are highly professional, fast, efficient, careful, and go above and beyond. Other companies charge you extra for what First Rate does (wrapping all furniture and breakables etc.) for the same rate. In fact their hourly rate is lower than other well known companies. If you book with them you won’t be disappointed.

Super happy with First-Rate Movers. Dealing with owner **** was a joy. He always answers the phone or gets back to you within minutes. He knows his stuff, has great communication skills and is very customer-service oriented. He has lots of experience in the business and it shows. As for moving day itself. ******* and **** were great! Total “can-do” attitude. Very easy going, very professional and very hard working. Perhaps a little heavy on mentioning that they do accept tips, but hey, they earned my tip for sure! Rates might be slightly above some other movers, but more than worth the easy of mind. **** will quickly earn your confidence and his movers will confirm it.
