TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Once Your Reservation is Confirmed:
We will call you the day prior to your move. If you have any questions or concerns, or would like to make changes to your reservation, please email us at info@LetsGetMovingcanada.com. Our dedicated staff will work hard to ensure that you receive the best possible moving experience, which includes punctual, efficient uniformed movers that arrive to your doorstep with a smile.
Our team will handle and transport your furniture as if it were our own. Kindly ensure that if you have a specialty item such as a piano, hot tub or pool table, that you advise us in advance of your move date as special equipment will be required for these items that may be subject to a moving surcharge. At Let’s Get Moving, we have a 4 hour minimum which includes 1 hour travel time for local moves within the GTA. For Example, if your move takes 3 hours from the time we arrive at your door, until we finish at the final destination, we will bill you for 4 hours.
For moves outside the GTA, we will send you an email describing any extra travel time for longer distance moves. We accept Cash, Debit, Visa and MasterCard. Please be advised that we have a 3% processing fee for CREDIT CARDS ONLY and applicable taxes are not included.
We bill by the hour and will ensure that your professional movers will work as hard as they can to complete the job to your satisfaction. Although sometimes we may estimate the time it takes to do a job, at the request of a client, we can never be certain as variables do occur such as access, traffic and the amount of items to move.
The final bill will be determined simply on the amount of time it takes and by no other means. It is mutually agreed upon, that by engaging Let’s Get Moving (LGM), that you consign to release the goods to a value of $6.00 per pound per article (generally 10 x more than what you would receive from other companies) and that as consignor, you indemnify and hold harmless LGM for any amount greater.
We do not transport valuables such as cash, jewelry, art and extremely personal mementos. As we are not responsible for these items, we ask you to pack and move these items prior to the arrival of our professional movers.
