Matco’s Long Distance Moving Process

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

1. Estimating Your Long Distance Move

At Matco, we prioritize providing accurate estimates to avoid any unnecessary surprises throughout the long distance moving process. That is why we offer free virtual or in-home surveys. Our skilled team of estimators will need to know the size of your home, how much and what type of items you are moving, and the specific services you require.

2. Developing Your Moving Plan

Once our team has obtained a list of items you are moving and the total weight of them, we will provide you with a quote. We will then start looking at potential service dates and lay out any additional steps you must take prior to moving day.

3. Packing For A Long Distance Move

Our long distance Edmonton moving team provides a variety of packing services. From a full packing service where we pack your entire household, to partial packing services where we only pack special items like breakables, mirrors and artwork. Or if you are up to the task, we can supply you with a variety of new or gently used moving boxes.

4. Loading Your Belongings

On your loading day, our Edmonton Long Distance Movers will arrive at your location with moving company owned equipment, furniture pads, floor and residence protection and the moving truck. Our long distance moving team in Edmonton will disassemble any large furniture and protect it all with high-quality furniture pads.

5. Transportation Across Canada

Once your possessions are all on the moving truck, they will be transported 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.

6. In-Home Delivery

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

7. Unpacking And Box Removal

Matco’s Long Distance Movers in Edmonton also offer a full or partial unpacking service. Since you’ll be deciding where your boxed 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.

Storage Services Designed for Long Distance Moving

Sometimes your move-in dates don’t align with your move-out dates. Not a problem. Matco offers a wide range of temporary, short term and long-term storage solutions designed to make long distance moving a breeze.
