The hourly rate for the moving crew is based on the number of movers and trucks required. Our moving company always assigns the optimal number of movers to every job in order to minimize cost and maximize productivity. For local moves that originate in Ottawa, we charge a flat travel time of 60 minutes, plus the number of hours upon unloading and completion of the move. If there is more than one origin or destination, the job time starts when movers leave the office of Ottawa Best Movers and completes with unloading at the final destination.
A local move, by our standards, is any move that begins and ends within radius of 20 kilometers of Ottawa’s City Hall. This applies to moves within Ottawa and is based on the crew travelling by the fastest route. The fees for a local move will incorporate a standard one-hour charge for travel time at the contracted rate. The charge for travel time is to cover the cost of getting the crew to the job, refueling, and returning to the office at the end of the job.
You hire a 2-man moving crew at $150/hour to move your belongings. Your move starts in Kanata at 9:00 AM. Your crew finishes unloading at your new home in Kanata 5 minute away from old address at 1:00 PM. The elapsed time for your move is 4 hours. The total time billed for would be 5 hours (the elapsed time for your move plus one hour for travel time to/from your location). Your bill totals to 5 hours x $150 = $750 + tax.
