COVID-19 update: As an essential service putting safety first, all of our movers wear masks on every move.
In any household, there are certain items that can require extra time, effort and attention from our Ottawa moving crews. Some are high-risk items. Some are high-risk services. Other items are high risk both onto themselves and for a moving crew. We’re talking about moving things like pianos, heavy furniture, heavy appliances (refrigerators, washers & dryers, etc.), pool tables and other items that weight a lot and/or are very expensive and/or fragile.
It is a standard practice in the Ottawa moving industry to add a surcharge for moving high risk items or performing high-risk services.
These figures are examples of our typical surcharges for moving high risk items and hoisting furniture. As many variables can affect the moving and hoisting processes, these figures may vary depending on individual circumstances and difficulty of access. Surcharges are in addition to hourly rates for the crew. If hoisting is the only service required, a flat rate can be arranged.
Charges are figured on a case-by-case basis.
