How much do movers cost Ottawa?
The average local move in Ontario costs between $90-$120 an hour. Generally speaking this is a typical range per hour for two movers and a truck. Rates will vary depending on how far away your new home is. It’s safe to say that if you want to move within 100-150 kilometres the above moving rates would apply as it would be classified as a “local” move.
What about hiring the Ottawa Mover with the cheapest rates?
It is often said that by paying a little you get a lot less and that paying a little more gives you a lot more. This is very true in the moving business. You want an insurer that carries insurance, is bonded and has been in business for at least 5 years that can supply you with referrals. If you want to take a chance with some guys and a truck you may find yourself and your belongings in a mess.
How far in advance should I hire movers?
Ideally, you want to arrange your move a least two months in advance. If you don’t you may have trouble finding a mover. In the worst case, at least four weeks, but know that if you only have a month or less before your move, you’ll have a limited choice of movers. Most of the good movers are booked two to three months out so you may want to keep that in mind.
How do I make movers cheaper?
Everybody wants to save money. Moving can be expensive. Here are some great ways to cut costs on your next move.
Collect as many free boxes as possible before moving.
Choose a less popular date and time to move.
Get quotes from multiple movers.
Pack everything yourself.
Always read your contract carefully.
Enlist friends for a DIY move.
Get items ready to move by labelling them for each room.
Move your things as close to the front door as possible.
Should you empty drawers when moving?
No, it’s best to take everything out of all your drawers. Desks and dressers can be heavy when the drawers are empty. Leaving them full makes them super heavy which can lead to all kinds of trouble and add to the expense of the move.
What items don’t movers move?
There are certain things your movers cannot – or shouldn’t – pack. Here are some potentially dangerous items that movers avoid.
Nail polish remover.
Paints and paint thinners.
