Local moves are supposed to be affordable, fast, and easy, and many of us will take this assumption literally and attempt to do everything ourselves. Can you handle your local move? Local moving in Calgary is limited to a 50-mile radius and therefore do not involve nearly as much work, traffic, and planning. Should you do it or hire a professional?
What you need to know about hiring local moving services
Do you have family and friends to help you with the move? Are you moving any fragile valuables? Do you need help to move heavy appliances like fridges? How easy will it be to assemble and disassemble your furniture?
You likely need professional Calgary area movers if you need help with one or more of the above situations. We assist with all these issues and offer extra ones you may not have considered, like unpacking your furniture and moving them up the stairs.
An overview of our local moving services
We are affordable local movers
As explained, many people do not hire moving companies for short-distance moves because they do not find it wise to pay thousands of dollars for something they can do. The ultimate choice between hiring one or doing it yourself depends on whether you find an affordable local mover with reasonable rates and excellent services.
Our professionally trained Calgary movers can help you find an average cost of your moving services when you contact us for an estimate. We will look at everything about your move, including additional services like visual inspections of the areas you want to put in your items. Note that we may not be able to offer you uncharacteristically low estimates, but this is because we do not want to low-ball our quality of work.
All about the cost of our moving services
The first thing to know when hiring movers is how they charge their service. Some things to determine the cost of local moving services include:
- The shipment weight
- Extra services
- Hours of work
Generally, local moves should cost much less than long-distance moves, especially when you have a small number of things to pack. We will adjust the price depending on the items’ weight or the work hours.
How we can help cut down your cost
Hiring a local moving company can be good when you let them pack all your goods. The benefit here is that we know how to arrange all items into organized systems, so we use more small boxes and take on less space in the truck. It is impossible to avoid all the extra stuff you do not need, but a moving company is indifferent to them and will be careful about optimizing the packing situation to your full benefit.
Tipping our staff
You should only tip the staff based on your gratitude and satisfaction. The best Calgary movers like to maintain the same consistently positive remarks by ensuring safe and quality moving and would be open to hearing from you about any requests you have for your move.
