Unlike most moving companies, First Rate Movers employs full-time, payrolled movers. This means paying decent wages, overtime pay, holiday pay, vacation pay, CPP, EI, and WSIB. It also means training movers on how to move properly, safely, and efficiently. The result is a capable group of employees that feel appreciated, respected and who value their jobs. These movers take pride in their work and value customers’ opinions of their service.
In contrast, most moving companies hire day/cash labourers or hire their movers as contractors. This is usually done in an attempt to avoid undertaking the responsibilities of a legitmate employer. These kind of labourers usually lack commitment to and respect for the companies that hire them. This results in a high turn over of transient labourers who rarely care about customers or their belongings. These companies are often left desparate for workers and end up hiring less desireable people such as convicted criminals and drug addicts. Most customers would not want these types around their families or handling their belongings but few think to consider this possibility when hiring a moving company.
At First Rate Movers, we care about our customers and our employees and it shows. You can take comfort in knowing that this Ottawa moving company is also bonded.
