My husband and I have moved 4 times in the past 2 years. By far, Best Moves was the best company we've worked with. Our move was complex - house swapping! Best Moves moved our belongings out of our sons home (which we were renting) and into storage. Then they went to our sons home, picked up his belongings and moved him back into his home. We highly recommend this company for any local moves. Extremely helpful, hard-working, trustworthy - and due to their packing genius, they saved us an additional storage fees! Great price, great service. I cannot say enough how thankful we were. Our gratitude to Max, Orest, and the entire team. We will use them again in October.

F.A.Q.

We recommend booking your move with us 1 – 2 months ahead if you’d like to be able to secure a certain day and time for your upcoming move when season is high (May – September). Moving slows down in winter time and 1 – 2 week notice is usually sufficient to reserve your spot.

We do not require a deposit for any local move (within 50 kilometres) when you first scheduling it with us, and we will not ask you for any type of an upfront payment, or your credit card information prior to the move. 

A deposit is required if you are:

  • moving outside of Calgary to a different city or province (50+ kilometres)
  • requesting to reschedule your appointment
  • booking a move outside of Calgary (50+ kilometres)
The deposit will be applied in full against your final bill on the day of the move. 
The deposit will not be refunded if you choose to cancel/reschedule your move and fail to provide a 48-hour notice.

We accept the following options:

  • cash

  • debit card
  • credit card

If you choose to pay with a credit card 2.7% transaction fee will apply. 

We provide both invoices and receipts to all our customers.

We require at least a 48-hour notice to be given in order to cancel or reschedule your move. Moves cancelled without a proper notice may be subject to our minimum moving charge of $330.00 or forfeiting a deposit.

We can schedule and dispatch your move once you have received, reviewed and signed a quote. To obtain a quote please give us a call or submit “Get a Free Quote” form online.

Every move is unique and the time required to complete it depends on many factors, such as:  

  • weather condition
  • size of your shipment
  • size of the crew
  • access to your place (stairs, elevator, hallways etc.)
  • distance between the origin and destination 
  • if packing services required 
  • if furniture disassembly/assembly service is required

Yes, if the building allows. Dedicated elevator will guarantee smooth and efficient move, there will be no interruptions caused by another tenants, no complaints, and no waiting time.

How we Calculate your Moving Quote

At Best Moves Calgary, we provide complete transparency to our customers about our moving rates. Nobody likes paying more than they expect, so we provide full cost brake down in our moving estimates and include all additional charges that might be associated with a certain moving service (additional packing service, moving an oversized object, overnight storage etc.).

Because every move is different, we will generate a unique moving quote specifically for you. There are four main factors that will have the biggest impact on your estimate:

  1. Inventory – number of boxes, furniture pieces, appliances etc.;
  2. Access to a property – stairs, elevator, long carry etc.;
  3. Distance between origin and destination (driving time);
  4. Additional Services – packing / unpacking, furniture disassembly / assembly.

All moving estimates for local movers jobs issued by Best Moves are hourly based. The rate per hour is determined by the number of movers and trucks required. Based on the scale of the move, Best Moves assigns the optimal number of professional movers to each job in order to minimize costs for our customers and maximize the efficiency of our crew.

To get an accurate moving quote one of our sales representatives will send you a link to our customer portal, so you can submit your full inventory. This includes the number and size of boxes you may have, as well as the appliances, furniture, exercising equipment and other items your inventory may include. Based on the items you have in your inventory, we will be able to estimate a service time required to complete the job, and any supplies or equipment that might be required in order to make your move as efficient and smooth as possible.

Some other considerations that go into carrying out your move may or may not affect your pricing quote. Make sure to acknowledge your sales representative if any of the factors below may apply to your move:

  • Items involved in your inventory require special care (such as antiques or artwork);
  • Oversized, heavy items (piano, treadmill, elliptical, safe etc.);
  • Items in your inventory cannot be moved without disassembly;
  • Items that will not fit in an elevator and have to be brought up / down the stairs;
  • Items made of glass, stone, concrete or marble;
  • No direct access to the residence, i.e. Long carry.
Although we provide a wide range of moving services and our crews can tackle almost any job, we do not specialize in moving of baby grand pianos, hot tubs, pool tables and commercial fitness equipment. You might want to consider other moving companies that have proper equipment and skill set to take care of those items.
