Local movers serving moves within Ontario that start and/or end in Ottawa.

Our moving crews arrive alert, aware, and properly equipped to do the job.

Our reputation as one of Ottawa’s premiere moving companies is upheld by the quality of our work and the care we show for our customers’ property. Your moving crew will protect your carpet/floors with floor-runners (protective rolls of nylon-covered neoprene). You may use, free of charge, our wardrobe boxes to move your clothes. All furniture is properly protected with moving pads, and secured on the moving truck. Mattresses and box springs are placed in protective bags to keep them clean when moving them. Sofas, love seats, and armchairs are either placed in protective moving bags or else wrapped in moving blankets and then stretch wrapped. All glass and/or wood shelves and table tops are removed and wrapped in moving blankets. Mirrors and artwork are placed in specially designed moving boxes. All moving crews have tools on hand to remove/replace doors, railings, and other fixtures as well as to disassemble/reassemble bed frames, vanities, desks, tables, etc……

Our moving crews will always take the utmost care in moving your furniture but properly protecting your furniture takes time. As most customers are paying by the hour, to cut down on costs, they may want the moving crew not to spend time protecting certain items that they feel are less important. Your moving crew will oblige any such requests but will also inform you that such items may not be covered by our insurance if they weren’t properly protected.
