Moving Locally

A local move, by our standards, is any move that begins and ends within 30 kilometers of Ottawa’s City Hall. This applies to moves within Ontario and is based on the crew travelling by the fastest route. The charges for a local move will incorporate a standard one-hour charge for travel time at the contracted rate. The charge for travel time is to cover the cost of getting the crew to the job, refueling, and returning to the office at the end of the job.

For example: You hire a 2-man moving crew at $140/hour to move your belongings. Your move starts in Kanata at 9:00 AM. Your crew finishes unloading at your new home in Orleans at 2:00 PM. The elapsed time for your move is 4 hours. The total time billed for would be 5 hours (the elapsed time for your move plus one hour for travel time). Your bill totals to 5 hours x $140 = $700 + tax.

Expect that the crew may stop for the occassional short break. After all, they are only human. Should the crew break for any extended period (ie. for lunch or dinner), this time will be deducted from the customers bill.
