Binding Estimates

With a Written Binding Estimate for your move, the price we quote is the price you pay! A Written Binding Estimate is the correct legal term for a “flat” price, as opposed to an hourly estimate. An on-site moving estimate is required in order for Move-Ottawa Movers to provide a Written Binding Estimate (it is illegal to give binding moving estimates over the phone) and is based on the agreed upon inventory of goods to be moved and services to be provided. As we have an opportunity to physically evaluate the goods, we are able to offer a flat price. If inventory of items changes or increases during the move, Move-Ottawa Movers will recalculate and provide a revised estimate.A flat rate is usually 10 to 20 percent higher then an hourly rate.
