Dedicated trip - Ottawa to Toronto -
Ottawa movers offering express delivery service from Ottawa to Toronto and the GTA. Also moving to Mississauga, Etobicoke, North York, Scarborough, Oshawa, Ajax, Pickering, Belleville, Kingston, Brockville, Cornwall and other towns along the 401 corridor. The fully-equipped truck and driver service allows for substantial savings compared to a regular move and usually allows for same day delivery.
The cost of the express delivery service within Ontario is broken into two parts:
- A flat rate charge per kilometer to cover driver wages, fuel, and basic cargo insurance ($0.60/Lb).
- An hourly rate for labour to assist with loading and unloading the truck if required.
Example: (rates vary depending on the date involved and truck size required)
You want move the contents of your apartment to Scarborough from Barrhaven and the distance is figured out to be 400 kilometers. You and friends load the truck with the help of the driver who makes sure that items are loaded properly and secured on the truck. It takes 1.5 hours to load the truck and 1 hour to unload at the destination. Your costs would be as follows:
Travel Charge: 400km x $1.75/km = $700
Labour: 2.5 hours x $60/hr = $150
Combined Total = $850
How does this compare to renting a truck and doing everything yourself?
A typical 16' moving truck will cost anywhere between $425 and $575 to rent for a trip from Ottawa to Toronto, including mileage charges, insurance and tax. Fuel will cost between $150 and $200 depending on exact distance travelled and whether the truck runs on gas or diesel. The average total cost will end up between $650 and $700, including fuel.
