    Cactus Moving FAQ

    Navigating your Calgary move? We've got you covered with our comprehensive FAQ section, updated for 2023! From understanding pricing to choosing services, we answer all your pressing queries. Let's make your moving experience smoother and stress-free with the right information at your fingertips.

    How to choose your moving company in Calgary?

    1. Research: Start by searching for “Calgary moving” or “movers in Calgary” online. Look for companies that have a strong online presence and positive customer reviews.
    2. Compare Services: Not all moving companies offer the same services. Some might just provide a truck and driver, while others offer full services, including packing, unpacking, and furniture assembly. Determine what services you need and find a company that can accommodate them.
    3. Ask for Estimates: Once you’ve narrowed down your options, contact a few companies for quotes. Remember, the lowest price doesn’t always mean the best service. It’s important to understand what’s included in the quote. Some movers may provide a low estimate but charge extra for various services on the day of the move.
    4. Check Credentials: Make sure the company is registered, licensed, and insured. In Calgary, moving companies should be licensed by the city and have insurance to cover any damages during the move.
    5. Read Reviews and Testimonials: Look for reviews and testimonials from previous customers. This can give you an idea of the company’s reliability and professionalism. Keep an eye out for comments about punctuality, care in handling items, and whether the final price was as quoted.
    6. Consider Experience: A company that has been in the moving business for several years is likely to be more reliable and efficient. They would have experienced staff who can handle unexpected situations and solve problems on the go.
    7. Customer Service: The company’s approach to customer service is a good indicator of their overall reliability. They should be responsive, willing to answer your questions, and able to provide clear information about their services and prices.

    What will be the cost for the move?

    Each move is unique. We charge a fixed hourly rate. Talk to our dispatcher today to get a free estimate! Our friendly move expert will ask you all the right questions and will be able to give you the best rates in Calgary for 2023!

    That being said, we can give you general guidelines on the factors that affect the price of a move. First, the size of the property is a strong indicator. A 4+ bedroom house will cost more than a 1 bedroom basement unit, simply by the number of items that need to be moved. Second, it is important to take other factors into consideration:

    • Is this a last-minute booking? While we are happy to help accommodate, sometimes this will include additional fees. Talk to our moving expert to find out!
    • Do you transport heavy items such as a piano or a safe? We might need to make special arrangements, but we will be very excited to move anything you need moving!
    • Is this a long-distance move? If this is, we will add travel fees to the move. There are no travel time fees within Calgary city limits and depending on your booking we might be able to waive them. Contact our move expert by phone, text or email today to find out.
    • Other less common factors might appear as well. Please make sure you tell our move dispatcher all the details so that we can give you a free estimate as soon as possible!

    While all these factors might seem daunting at first, fear not! Our friendly moving experts are here to ask you all the right questions and will be able to draft up a moving plan and a free moving price estimate in no time!

    Are you bonded and insured?

    Yes! Cactus Moving is Bonded and Insured.

    It is very important for your moving company to be bonded and insured. This protects you, the client, your valuables while they are being transported and moved and ultimately the moving company that provides the service. To learn more about the potential differences that professional moving companies might have, we have a handy guide about questions you should ask your moving company in Calgary for 2023.

    Do you charge travel time fees?

    What is a Travel Time Charge?

    Some companies charge travel time fees. This can be a charge that relates to the time it takes the truck and movers arrive to at your home and a charge for travelling from the final destination of the move back to the office.

    As long as you move inside the Calgary city limits, we do not charge travel time. Your charges will be the total time that our moving experts are moving your belongings, nothing else.

    If you are planning a long-distance move or your home (either the one you are moving out of or the one you are moving into) is outside of the Calgary city limits, you should bring this up with our moving expert at the time of booking and estimate. Our friendly moving dispatcher will let you know if additional fees are in order. This will help prevent unpleasant surprises on Move Day, which is usually stressful enough without surprise charges from the moving company.

    Are your workers experienced?

    Absolutely! Cactus Moving only hires and sends out the most experienced workers in the industry. Tight corners, stairs, bulky equipment – all of it is no match for our moving professionals! Our company has over 30 years of combined experience in the moving industry. We take great pride in ensuring that Cactus Moving stands for a professional brand name in the Calgary area and hope that it will make us your first choice when it comes to moving houses.

    Do you have any hidden fees?

    No hidden fees!

    At Cactus Moving, we believe that the fee structure has to be as transparent as possible. Moving day is exhausting, stressful and sometimes even scary for our customers. We are here to provide peace of mind and to ensure that your move will be as quick, comfortable and error-free as possible.

    Do you do long distance moves to/from Vancouver?

    Yes! Cactus Moving is happy to help with your long-distance moves in general.

    We often do long-distance moves from Calgary to Vancouver, Burnaby, Richmond, Surry, Coquitlam, North Vancouver and many other areas in BC. While a long-distance move is much more expensive than a move within Calgary, it is so much more important that you rely on a moving company that you can trust!

    We are very familiar with the great Vancouver area and will happily move you to anywhere in that region. We are also happy to move from Vancouver and the above areas (Burnaby, Richmond, Surry, Coquitlam, and North Vancouver) to Calgary for the same charge.

    Professionalism, Quality

    Best movers ever! Worth every dollar. Responsive, detail oriented, friendly, efficient, super strong and most importantly, very smart with how things should be moved. I've had movers in the past but never had ones as good as Cactus Moving. 100% would recommend again and again.

    Local Moving

    Vlad, Jacob, and Nolan were very friendly, and professional. They helped us move a 3 bedroom home in one afternoon with no problem, even helped wrap furniture and set down mats on the floors to avoid damage, wet shoes etc. And all last minute too! Definitely worth hiring these guys to save stress and my back ?

    Responsiveness, Value

    Just had Cactus do my move for me, James and his collegue were amazing. Went above and beyond by helping me take down my tv mount when they didnt have too. Very respectful, efficient and I would highly recommend them to any one in need of a move 🙂

    Local Move, Quality

    Quickest and most efficient company I've ever dealt with, I had a quote in my inbox within minutes. Sam was nothing but a pleasure to deal with and responded promptly to all of my questions, even on the weekends. Movers were efficient despite the annoying stairs in my old walk up building, and the -30° temperatures outside. I also appreciate the up front hourly rate with no fuel surcharges/travel fees that so many other companies have.

    Local Moving, Calgary

    I had a great experience with Cactus Moving a few weeks ago when I moved everything I owned onto a really small storage container. The 2 movers working were efficient and friendly. The price was fair and they actually cared about my things so that was nice. One of the guys who wrapped my couch even showed me where the built in pocket was under my couch for the legs so I would know where they were later on.

    Calgary Local Movers

    If we could give 10 stars, we would. Yarik, Andrei, Nolan & Roman were quick, efficient and worked hard. They showed up on time, were meticulous and careful. Compared to other moving companies we have used in the past, we were absolutely thrilled with the service we received. We would highly recommend them to our friends and family and we will most definitely use Cactus Moving again.
