Matco’s Long Distance Moving Process in Calgary

Moving long distance is a process, especially in a country as large as Canada. In our 55 years of business, we’ve crafted a simple and solid moving process. Below is a glimpse into the steps we’ll take in making your long distance move as smooth as possible.

1. Estimating Your Move

Our goal at Matco is to provide you with accurate, thorough and transparent estimates to avoid any unnecessary surprises throughout the moving process. That is why we offer free virtual (video) or in-home estimates. Our skilled team of surveyors will need to see the size of your home, what you are moving, and the specific services you require.

2. Creating a Solid Moving Plan

Once our team has the list of items you are moving and the total weight of your shipment, we will provide you with a long distance moving quote. Next, we’ll look at potential service dates and communicate any additional steps you must take prior to the big day.

3. Packing for a Long Distance Move

Packing is time-consuming, and sometimes it’s easier to leave it up to the pros at Matco. Our long distance moving company in Calgary has a wide range of packing services to choose from. Or, if you are feeling up to the task, we can supply you with moving boxes and materials to get the job done.

4. Loading Your Household Possessions

On moving day, our Calgary Long Distance Movers will arrive at your home with the moving truck equipped with dollies, pads and materials to start loading your belongings. The movers will lay out floor runners and prep your property to prevent damage from occurring. We’ll also disassemble any large furniture pieces and protect them all with high-quality furniture pads. 

5. Transportation Across Canada

Once your possessions are loaded onto the moving truck, we’ll transport them safely to your new home. The time it takes for your shipment to arrive will depend greatly on the distance between your old home and your new home. Your personal long distance move coordinator will provide you with a range of dates on which your shipment is scheduled to arrive.

6. In-Home Delivery & Furniture Set Up

When the moving truck arrives at your new home, the long distance movers will unload all your belongings and place them in the room of your choosing. Any furniture that was disassembled by Matco at your old home will be reassembled and set up at this time.

7. Unpacking & Box Removal

Matco’s Long Distance movers in Calgary also offer a full or partial unpacking service. Since you’ll be deciding where your contents go, our team will simply place items on top of surfaces like counters, and table tops for you to put away as you like.
