Movers in ottawa

Post by lobo2k »

Anyone know any movers in Ottawa for literally a 10-15 minute job? I'm getting stupid quotes. I'll pay well but not 700$. Just need a few machines swapped around in my house... Hobbit (380 lbs) is the problem

You’ll have better luck finding friends & family to come help. Pay them with beer and pizza.

This sounds like an easy job? Perhaps if you describe the move here (stairs, tight turns involved, etc.) I am sure you would find someone to help. How many people you need? Are you able to help? Do the pins need to be broken down? I would be willing to help in a few weeks as I leave for vacation tomorrow.

Oh, and perhaps tell us which part of Ottawa you live in.

Well, I'm specifically looking for 'movers', so I didn't think posting the minutia on a pinball forum would help... I was hoping someone here knew someone. I paid 2 guys (who were actual movers) last time like $150 to move a Pirates (an equally heavy machine) but lost their number... was hoping for the same luck. The companies I call want 500+. For a 10 minute job...

I live in Orleans by Portobello & Bryan Coburn. Main issue is moving a Hobbit which is 380-400lbs, and it's to a basement with a staircase that turns twice, and while not EXTREMELY tight, it's tight enough.... there would be difficulty navigating with a dolly (ie, straps probably needed).

But yes, moving the average machine is not that difficult. Last few times me and a friend have literally just carried them up. Hobbit's a beast and a half though.

I've moved a bunch of pins with friends & family. Trust me Hobbit down my stairs is a back breaking endeavor. I also don't trust any of my friends with that much weight - I don't want to die from a 400 lb pin falling on me :) . I found movers before that did a quick cash job, someone messaged me here but dammit I must have deleted the message cause I went through them all and can't find.

Well technically not yet. My estimated delivery was Dec but they are about 8 weeks behind. So Feb/Mar probably.

I also locked in for the other 4 modules. Prices going up in Sep unless you lock in at the current price with a deposit for each module. Done.

Btw i get it with moving Hobbit. I have a WOZ ECLE at 403 lbs. Wrecked my hardwood getting it in the house.
