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 PODS container, you can count on us.

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

I wanted to let you know that we are extremely happy with how things went yesterday. Your crew was FANTASTIC – professional, efficient and plus they kept a good morale all day (and all evening) long despite the very hard work that they had to accomplish. I don’t know if your company recognizes excellence in 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.

Moved on May 19, 2015 – **** and his crew were great! I was very happy with the guys who came to do my move last month. They were on time, polite & professional. They were careful with my stuff. They did a great job. Finished earlier than I expected. Price was very reasonable. After being in the military for 22 years, I have done a lot of moving in my life. Things can be very stressful or go wrong during a move. This was not the case with this move. It was one of the best moves I’ve had by far. From now on, I will always recommend this moving company to anyone else who might mention needing movers. Thank you very much First Rate Movers Inc. for everything!

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.
