Get Packing!Local Long-Distance within Ontario


We faciltate moves to or from the Greater Ottawa Area within Ontario. We consider any move that starts or ends more then 100 kilometers from Ottawa’s City Hall to be a long-distance move. Pricing for these moves is based on an hourly rate for loading the contents onto the truck and then offloading at the destination plus a charge for travel time. The travel charge is billed at a rate per kilometer one way and dependes on the size of the crew and truck. This charge covers the cost of getting the crew to the job, travel between locations, fuel, kilometers, hotel stays, meal allowances and returning to the office at the end of the job. Charging for travel time in this manner allows customers to better predict the cost of the move as poor weather conditions, accidents, detours, and other delays will not affect the cost.

Save up to 40% by taking part in a consolidated or “backhaul” trip.

The travel charge usually comprises the largest portion of the bill on an inter-city move and can be disproportionately expensive for smaller moves. To make things more cost-effective, clients with smaller movers will often opt for consolidated or “backhaul” (return) trips in an effort to reduce this cost. This can allow customers to save up to 40% by sharing come of the travel costs. Even clients with larger moves can be save money if we can manage to co-ordinate a move returning from their destination city.

For example:

You hire a 2-man moving crew at $120/hour. Your move starts in Ottawa at 8:00 AM and the crew finishes loading by 10:00 AM. Your crew starts unloading at your new place in Toronto at 5:00 PM and finishes at 7:00 PM. The elapsed time for your move is 4 hours. You are billed for travel time at $3.65 km for 440 km. You are offered a $500 discount on the travel charge for taking part in a consolidated trip. Your bill totals to 4 hours x $120 = $480 (labour) + $1106 ($1606 travel charge less $500 discount) = $1586 + tax
