Darling Solutions is proud to offer our own moving services, using our own trucks and team! We feel that there is a certain sensitivity required, especially when providing senior moving services, and we recognize that our moving services reduce stress and ease the transition into a new dwelling.
We’ve been Ottawa movers since 2010, and Darling Solutions is unique in that 95% of our business comes from word-of-mouth referrals. Our entire team does their best to provide a red-carpet moving experience!
There is no extra charge for disassembly and reassembly of furniture, picture hanging, flights of stairs — our price is one hourly price, no hidden surprises. We charge from when our truck leaves the warehouse until it returns and we track time to the quarter hour, so your invoice is as accurate as possible.
Our moving trucks come prepared with all the necessary supplies, including: moving blankets, stretch wrap, floor runners, picture boxes, wardrobe boxes (for hanging clothes), tools for disassembly and reassembly of furniture, and more!

Frequently Asked Questions
Our moving services are one hourly price, with no hidden fees. Our moving team will pack any large artwork in picture boxes, hanging clothing in wardrobe boxes, and lamps and shades in boxes or bins as appropriate.
The team will use moving blankets and stretch wrap to wrap and protect furniture before loading the truck. If there is furniture to be dissembled or reassembled, they will make every effort to accommodate provided that it is not overly complex or dangerous; please note that we will take wall-mounted televisions off the wall, but we do not remount TVs.
Once the truck is loaded, they will proceed to your new home, unload furniture, and then unwrap and arrange it where you want it.
Our moving trucks come stocked with basic supplies, including: tools, stretch wrap, moving blankets, moving dollies, bungee cords to secure furniture and boxes, straps for exceptionally heavy items. We also come equipped with tape gun and packing tape, mattress bags, picture boxes, wardrobe boxes (for hanging clothes!), and an assortment of boxes.
We provide mostly Ottawa moving services, but we move clients outside of Ottawa too - we'll do our best to get your things where they need to go!

What your friends Say
The team knew where to park and the layout of both buildings – again good research. And although I was not present for the off loading it went smoothly as well. All of the team showed expertise and an understanding of the complexities of dealing with elderly people and their families.
We would definitely recommend them!
This in my opinion is service the way it’s supposed to be. I love you all thank you so so much
I would definitely recommend Darling Solutions for your moving needs.
Kelly's team displayed the same mindfulness, caring and compassion on the job as she did during the initial consult. We are grateful to your company for helping us through this. Thank you
I highly recommend Darling Solutions to anyone.
Again, we could not have done it without them! From decluttering and packing our condo to moving and setting us up in our new home, every member of the team was hardworking, helpful, warm and extremely competent. Their attention to detail in setting up our new place was remarkable. Honourable mention to the whole team: Kelly, Shawn, Ian, Phyllis, Barb M., Barb Y. Jack, Susan, Glen and Paul. Barb M., our team leader, and Ruth, in the office, were particularly good at calming a nervous client.
We recommend Darling Solutions without reservation. We can’t thank them enough.

Adding COVID into the mix it was almost paralysing to think about. After a recommendation to Contact Darling most of that fear went away.
Professional, competent and most importantly Caring.
They made this move so smooth for my wife and her parents.
On moving day they left their old home and at the end of the day arrived in a new home with all their belongings unpacked and arranged. Completely stress and back pain free. The next day Darling took care of removing items targeted for donation and all remaining items for waste.
I cannot recommend this service enough.
Thank you so much.
Frankly thank-you does not even cover it. Your team, led by Julie, was absolutely incredible from the first moment we met down to the beautiful new plant for my mom and our goodbyes at the door.
They were so organized, thoughtful, friendly and polite. It was a sincere pleasure to work with all of them. I enjoyed the experience so much I am almost sad that the move is finished but happy that we will meet again when my parents are ready to hang their many pictures.
Again, I am in awe and am telling anyone with ears about Darling Solutions so they will hopefully in turn tell their friends and family.
Very best regards and please send our thanks once again to your team.
