It’s a bad place to be in, you need to move, and you need to move, like, yesterday. Home moving can be stressful at the best of times; a last-minute move is almost always a headache waiting to happen. But don’t worry! In this blog, we’ll share the best advice on hiring last-minute Calgary home movers, and some other handy tricks for your sudden move.

Why Might You Need To Hire Last Minute Movers?

Things happen, and plans change. Some reasons you might need to hire last-minute movers could be:

  • Your original mover cancelled at the last minute.
  • You have to move suddenly for a job.
  • Your living area may go through a natural disaster.
  • You may need to move for family reasons.
  • Your living situation might change suddenly and drastically.

Why Should You Hire Movers?

In the hustle and bustle of a last-minute move, hiring movers might seem like another unneeded complication, but this important step will actually save you time and money. Hiring home movers will guarantee you professional packing (protecting your items from damage), ensure your goods are packed up and moved on time, and provide you peace of mind.

Additionally, hiring professional movers will save you all the time of packing, loading and unloading your goods, leaving you time to focus on the other important aspects of a move – including saying goodbye to loved ones. With the right moving supplies and the expertise you might not have, movers can get the job done quickly, efficiently, and most importantly, safely. This will help reduce your stress and leave one less thing on your frantic plate.

Finding Your Last Minute Calgary Home Mover

Even in the last-minute chaos, there are still important things to look for in your chosen mover. While you may not have the luxury of being too picky, here are our top 3 things to prioritize in your mover.

Licensed and Insured: Above all, you want to make sure your belongings are in good hands. An important part of this is making sure your home movers carry (and offer) insurance and are licensed (if required by law). Ask your moving representative about this off the bat, and any reputable movers will be happy to provide you with proof!

Price: Remember, if it’s too good to be true, it probably is. Ensure the quote you receive is reasonable and in line with industry standards. The last thing you want is to discover numerous extra charges after the fact. Ask for a clear estimate and contract before the move.

Reputation: As with all professional industries, word of mouth goes a long way. Do a quick google of your chosen home mover, and watch out for any horror stories. Also beware of overly positive, bot-like reviews.
