Movers and Shakers

Furniture moves are a billable service; the charge out rate for a team of two staff and a truck is $66/hour. Please fill out service requests completely indicating what needs to be moved from which area to where. Tony Juric would be happy to provide an estimate for moves that would take more than a day or require additional staff before the work is undertaken.

A minimum of five working days notice (from the day we receive your service request in our office) is required to schedule work. Please keep in mind that lateral or vertical filing cabinets as well as desks should be emptied of all contents before they can be moved.

If work is required on an urgent basis, overtime work can be arranged. Please note that premium work rates will apply in such circumstances.

If you need further information on our office move services, please contact our Customer Service Centre at Extension 22401or
