Details of the Calgary move: Calgary SW Parkland to Calgary NW Beddington Heights

Recently, we had the pleasure of helping a customer move from a 2 bedroom apartment in Parkland to a similar-sized location in Beddington Heights. The distance for the move wasnā€™t that great and there was a limited amount of belongings. Therefore, we would consider this a small move operation. It took 4 hours with 2 movers and 1 truck.

Details of the move (residential, Calgary area)

The customer had a 2 bedroom apartment in Calgary. We moved the following furniture and items:

  • A bed
  • A dresser
  • 2 bookshelves
  • 2 end table
  • An office table and an office chair
  • A sofa
  • A love seat
  • 2 coffee tables
  • And about 30 boxes
