  5. Fees Estimates

    1. We Charge Hourly.  A fee estimate is only an estimate and does not guarantee final costs for our Services. If you have underestimated your Items, the estimate range will need to be adjusted accordingly. If the move is completed under the estimate, you will only be charged for the time required, subject to our Minimum Fee below. EZMOOV charges: $47.5/mover/hour x # hours + Travel Fee (See Section 5.2) + expenses (tolls, packing supplies, recycling and disposal fees) + taxes =  Total CostBy default, a move will require 2 movers, making EZMOOV’s base rate of $95/hour +expenses +tax. The final cost will be determined once all your Items are transported to their destination. The charge time starts from the time EZMOOV arrives at your start location and ends at the time EZMOOV leaves your end location.

    2. Travel Fee. EZMOOV will charge a travel fee based on the location of your move. The Travel Fee covers the costs for EZMOOV to dispatch to your location and to return to the base. The Travel Fee will be disclosed in your fee estimate. The typical Travel Fee are shown below:

    4. Expenses. Expenses incurred by EZMOOV as a consequence of your move will be invoiced to you at the rate it is invoiced to EZMOOV. Such Expenses may include Ferry Tickets, Parking Tickets, and others.

    5. Change Orders. Our fee estimates are based on the time it will take EZMOOV to complete the Services under normal circumstances. If you change the destination or increase your Items to be transported, our costs will increase based on the additional number of hours required to complete the Services. If our costs will exceed the fee estimate, we will advise you when our estimate will be exceeded, provide you with a new estimate to complete the move, and ask you to confirm that you want EZMOOV to complete the work.

    6. Delivery Time Not Guaranteed. EZMOOV does not guarantee the arrival time of your Items. You will receive an estimate from our staff and will receive updates by phone or text message if your Items will be significantly delayed due to traffic, inclement weather, or other unforeseen circumstances.

    7. Packing Supplies. If you do require our staff to assist with packing, the additional cost of packing supplies, including boxes, wrapping, or other non-reusable materials, will be added as an expense to your Services fees. If you identify your need for packing supplies in advance, these costs will be added to your Fee Estimate. Alternatively, they may be added, as needed with your approval, during the course of the move.

You must notify EZMOOV in advance if the value of your Items exceeds the coverage described in these Terms & Conditions. If the value of your Items exceeds our coverage, we will recommend that you obtain third-party insurance as described below and will require that you waive all claims against EZMOOV for loss or damage exceeding our Major Damage or Loss coverage.

    2. Major Damage or Loss. EZMOOV carries cargo insurance for losses sustained during transport of your Items.

    5. Predictable Damage. In certain circumstances, transporting some of your Items may predictably damage either your Items or the property itself. This includes transporting large objects through very small spaces or items that cannot be moved due to their build quality. In these circumstances, EZMOOV will warn you of the particular risk in advance and ask you to confirm whether you want us to proceed. In the event that damage is incurred transporting these Items, our coverage will be denied to the extent that it has been disclaimed.

    6. Excess Coverage. If the replacement value of your Items exceeds our coverage, EZMOOV recommends that you obtain additional third-party insurance for the move. We can recommend a local insurance broker for you to obtain this coverage.

  9. Limitation of Liability

    1. Assumption of Risk for Personal Injury. EZMOOV employees are covered by WorkSafeBC for injuries sustained on the job. EZMOOV requests that you do not assist in the performance of the move and that you remain a safe distance from the movers at all times. If you insist on participating in the move, you assume all risks, dangers, and hazards associated with this participation. You agree to waive all claims against EZMOOV in association with the Services outlined in the Fee Estimate.

    2. Indemnity. You agree to indemnify EZMOOV, its employees contractors and agents against all third party claims (including, without limitation, reasonable legal fees) arising from transporting your Items as requested in the Fee Estimate. This includes claims of theft and trespassing.
