Packages & Pricing

Competitive prices and responsive, friendly & reliable services.

Pricing

For all moving and disposal services our rates start at:

Size of Vehicle You Will Need

For small moves we use a 3/4 ton van that is 5’x5’x9′ with about 4’x4′ back doors. This is good for queen size beds as long as they are not too thick. This is the best way to move smaller items and loads.

Pricing is $50/hr for vehicle and mover with an extra $30/hr for an extra mover.  There is a gas/travel fee that depends on where we start and where we finish.

For moves up to a standard two bedrooms condo we use a cube van that is about 16’x7’x7′.

Pricing is $70/hr for vehicle and mover with an extra $30/hr for an extra mover.  There is a gas/travel fee that depends on where we start and where we finish.

For moves equivalent to a standard three bedroom condo or more we use a 20′ cube van with a power lift tail gate that is about 8′ wide and 8.5′ high.

Pricing is $90/hr for vehicle and mover with an extra $30/hr for an extra mover. There is a gas/travel fee that depends on where we start and where we finish.

There is a 5% GST charge as well.  We provide a small amount of shrink wrap and a roll off tape no charge for every move.  If there is going to be allot o If you need extra moving supplies, we will provide and bill you for the supplies you need.

Breaks will not be charged.  The driver will estimate the down time needed for breaks and eating and take that time off when the bill is tallied at the end of the day.

For disposal we charge you based on the kind of vehicle you need, how many people you require, what it will cost to dispose of at the transfer station, how long the job will take and how far we need to travel.

We need to factor in traffic and how long the lineups are at the transfer station. This means that rush hour times will cost you more money.

We can give you general estimates over the phone however our crew leader/driver will give the final price in person if the disposal involves more then a few small items. We bill out at blanket fee of $155/ton for all kinds of material to be sure we don’t lose money when we pay at the transfer station. All costs will be gone over and explained before the job starts. If you are not sure on weight and this concerns you you can come help the crew unload to be sure. We always strive to put in a good effort and to be fair to every customer.

For example. A 1 bedroom with elevator may take 2 hours to load into a 1 ton with 2 people. Based on where you are located we may charge a $55 travel/gas fee. It may be another 45 minutes to get to the transfer station and unload. You would be billed 2.75 hours at $70/hr for labor- $55 for travel- and $155 for the estimated weight.

If you don’t have much stuff- a 3 seater couch for instance- and you are not far from a transfer station you might be expected to pay $25 for weight, $40 for time and $20 for travel/fuel.

If we think we can donate or recycle some goods then we will. However we always bill by weight for disposal of these items to be sure that our costs will be covered. Clean metal by itself is free to dispose of and we do not charge weight for this.

Breakage And Transportation Insurance

Issues Moving Used Furniture

Moving used items has its set of issues and problems. Please let the movers know what needs special care in moving before they start the move. If an item is damaged at any point or you know of a particular weakness an item has the movers must be informed so they have the best chance of moving your item safely.

Certain items can’t be moved safely without special protection and they will not be warrantied if the homeowner opts to forgo protection.

Certain high-value items and artwork need to be crated if they are too big and delicate to be effectively blanket wrapped or boxed.

As well…
Flat-screen TV’s need to be put into TV boxes.
Pictures and flat glass must be bubble and blanket wrapped and put into picture boxes.

Lampshades and other delicates must be padded and boxed.

Pressed wood products like IKEA are notorious for only coming together properly once. Moving, taking them apart, putting them together the second time may cause damage. IKEA provides handymen that are used to their products and they will have the best chance of making sure your product can be re-used. Our movers will do what you ask but we will not take liability for damage.

As well, not all items can safely go where you want them. The movers will let you know if trying to get an item where you want it is risky and you will have to assume liability if you decide that you want them to do it regardless.

The simplest way to avoid this problem is to take measurements yourself and be sure that what you want makes sense before you start your move.

When An Item Gets Damaged

If an item can be fixed by a trip to one of our wood or glass workers we will always give you this option.

Standard coverage is set by the Motor Carrier Act and will cover your goods to a maximum of 60 cents per pound per article. For example, a 30-pound flat-screen TV whose screen has been cracked during the move would pay out 30 pounds x.6 $’s per pound = $18

We do have an Extra Value Protection option. For an extra $100 for up to 5000 pounds and $100 for every 5000 pounds after this we personally insure an item for up to $10 per pound of the item. This is for real damage to an item that has value. For example, a 30-pound flat-screen TV whose screen has been cracked during the move would pay out 30 pounds x 10 $’s per pound = $300.

There is a 5% GST charge as well.

We provide a small amount of shrink wrap and a roll off tape no charge for every move- after this there are charges for material. If you need extra moving supplies just look at our supply list and let us know what you need us to bring to the move.
