Disposal, Cleaning & Packing Services

Disposal Services

We have vehicles dedicated to just disposal for those loads that aren’t clean. Be sure to be clear on what it is that needs to be removed. It may be helpful to review the transfer station regulations and fees so you understand what needs to be separated and where the locations are.

Cleaning/Packing Services

If you need help with cleaning, packing and/or you need packing supplies we can help here as well for quite reasonable rates. All valuable, fragile objects we would ask that the person you trust most– yourself– deal with personally.

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.

Moving Extra’s You May Consider

Some people want a quick, no frills move to save time and money. If the furniture isn’t too expensive then blanket wrapping in the truck is the fastest way to do a move. Nicer furniture may need to be blanket and shrink wrapped in the home. Furniture you don’t want any dirt on at all you may want to use special furniture bags rather than just shrink wrap. These extra’s take time and materials but may be the best decision if your furniture deserves special care.

A quick way to do a move is to have your movers deliver your items to a main accessible point and then the homeowner will deal with everything from there. Room stickers and colour coding and marking on boxes with markers can also be used to help you movers deliver all the items to their appropriate rooms. The movers can also do all your unpacking and setup if you like.

If the home is nice and the carpets are clean than you may wish to have the movers lay down blankets to set up a staging area and shoes can be taken off inside the home. Another option is to use neoprene floor runners. The fastest way is to ask the movers to brush off their shoes and do a clean afterwards.

The movers will have a general understanding of what should be done based on the condition of the items and the home. The most important part of the equation though is that you the client tell the movers what you want so you have the moving experience you wish to have.
