First Rate Movers Reviews

★★★★★
We have used First Rate Movers for two moves over the last five years, and we were very pleased both times. Our most recent team of Wes, Zach, and Adam were friendly, professional, and efficient. Matt from the office was great to work with to help schedule and coordinate things. Overall a great moving experience, and I would strongly recommend them.

★★★★★
Professionals, respectful, quick. Came under estimate. This is the second time I used them for a big move and would use them again. Highly recommend.
- Chantal St-Germain

★★★★★
Hi Matt. Just wanted to tell you that the 2-man crew that did our job today was absolutely fantastic. They were efficient, respectful, polite and offered full service. Even though I didn't have any appliances, I had many more boxes than planned and many floors to go up and down at the starting location. The guys, Jesse I think and Aaron, were really focused on customer satisfaction. This is such a hard job, and I couldn't have asked for better service or attitude. Thank you!
- J-M Langlois

★★★★★
We recently used First Rate Movers to move several large pieces of furniture around in the house. From start to finish it was a very positive experience. The two gentlemen who were sent to do the job, Wes and Zack, were efficient, polite and very accommodating and demonstrated that they had a lot of experience in arranging furniture for people. Could not be happier with the careful service which was provided! We would definitely use First Rate again!!

So ... what do you expect from a Mover? you want someone that shows up when they say, treats your belongings with respect, and gets your stuff out of your old place and into your new one quickly and damage free. You get all of that with FirstRate. What you also get is a sense of deliberate success, a sense of humour and an very pleasant interaction with the staff. You get a sense that they are proud of doing an excellent job ... and you are very quickly calmed amidst the stressful time associated with a move.
- Gord Youngson

★★★★★
We had a team of three movers, they arrived right on time and immediately got to work. The guys wrapped everything that wasn’t in boxes. We were extremely impressed with their speed and efficiency while taking good care of our things. Would definitely recommend.
- Allison Pitre

★★★★★
My moving team (Wes, Zach and Adam) were definitely FIRST RATE! They worked very quickly and every item arrived in perfect condition. The move went as scheduled and the time estimate was very accurate. They had the tools needed to assist with a couple of items I forgot to disassemble. They were so polite and were definitely a happy crew - they seem to love their jobs and that helps when most moves are stressful to the customer. Our family has used First Rate many times and we recommend them highly! Matt is always very responsive to our quote requests and always tries to accommodate us in his busy schedule. A well run business! 5 stars!

★★★★★
I have nothing but good things to say about their service. I booked my move during the middle of the pandemic, all by email. When the moving day came, they were on time and finished on time as well. The movers took very good care of all of my belongings. The truck was super clean and organized as well.
- Diego Borja

★★★★★
The crew we had was on time and very efficient. All our furniture was protected with blankets and taped. I would definitely recommend First Rate Movers to family and friends

Matt was a big help over the phone when first scheduling the move date. On the day of the move, Wes, Adam and Ed were awesome. Punctual, polite and professional, these guys did a flawless job and even finished ahead of schedule. We highly recommend this team and company!
- Sanchita Sarkar

★★★★★
Watching Wes and Zach at work was something to behold. They moved everything with such care and efficiency. Nothing was broken despite their speed, how long it all took was bang on with the estimate — and they were nice guys to boot.
- Michael Monette

★★★★★
Great service! Super professional and fast. Highly recommend if you want a stress free move.
- Antoine Przybylak-Brouillard

★★★★★
The whole process of making a reservation with this company, through to the care and attention they demonstrated in handling our belongings, was excellent. We had two movers who went to great lengths to ensure that they kept our house as clean as possible ans that everything was loaded in such a way as to prevent damage in transit. They worked very hard and there was little to no downtime - very efficient. I have had some less-than-stellar experiences with movers over the years, but this company were solid professionals at every step. I would highly recommend them.
- Shakka Zulu

★★★★★
The team of Wes, Rob and Adam moved us and they were professional, personable and fun. They were tireless, took an interest and paid outstanding attention to detail. They truly are moving professionals and it showed within minutes of them beginning their work. If we could ever bear the thought of moving again we would 100 percent use First Rate Movers. We would totally recommend this company.
- Oona Woods

★★★★★
Wes, Matt, and Adam provided us with a stress-free move within the Ottawa area. They arrived early with smiles, navigated their truck into a tight spot with finesse, did a walk-thru of the house with me to learn the details of what was to be moved, and had boxes on the truck within 10 minutes of arrival. These guys work efficiently and they work hard. All furnishings were moved without damage to the items or to either home.
- Peter Boudreau

★★★★★
So glad I used First Rate Movers for my move within Ottawa! They did a great job, and never complained in spite of a few obstacles (construction at the first location - they had to carry my articles a fair distance). I had a team of three, and they worked very well together. They were non-stop - in fact, it was hard to get them to have a drink of water. They will be my movers of choice from now on. They truly understand and care about the customer's perspective. Glenna C

There was great communication between me and the team, and everyone knew what they were doing. I could not have asked for a better moving experience. There were absolutely no headaches at all, and, to my pleasant surprise, my move was completed under the estimate! If anyone is looking for a moving company in Ottawa, First Rate Movers absolutely know what they're doing. If you go with them, you'll be in good hands.

I used First Rate Movers to move locally in Gatineau. Top quality service! They showed up on time, worked fast and carefully. Nothing was broken and the move was completed in record time. They were paid by the hour but that did not slow them down. I also found their rate very reasonable. I would highly recommend them.
- Sylvain L.

***** *** *** were the selected movers to take care of moving my father's "End of Life" home. They were both very professional, courteous and friendly. The move from booking to completion was as quoted and no surprises at the end. My mother will be moving in September/October to her new home and we will definitely be calling upon First Rate Movers at that time. Thanks First Rate for a job well done. Much appreciated!!!

Arrangements were worked out and confirmed in writing in advance. Their crew of three arrived right on time, were highly professional and efficient--no time wasted, and good ideas along the way. Truck was right size, they had all the gear needed to conduct the move, and everything got placed at destination where it was directed. Couldn't ask for a better job--thanks guys.

Peter & A We highly recommend First Rate Movers without reservation.

We have worked with many wonderful people during all those years, however **** ***** *** *** ***** - our moving crew - took our moving experience to another level. They created a vibe and brought an energy and enthusiasm that we have never experienced before. These guys are the best moving crew we have ever had!
