Tips for Choosing the Best Office Movers in Calgary
Relocating an office is no small task. No matter the size of your office, or the reason for your move, it means coordinating lots of different people, places, and schedules. On top of that, there is the process of packing, moving, and unpacking to be handled as well. This blog will outline some of Matco Moving Solutions’ key tips for picking the best office movers in Calgary.
Choose a Licensed and Affiliated Company
When picking office movers in Calgary, it is of the utmost importance that they are fully licensed and insured to do the work they are offering. This protects them and you in any unforeseen circumstances or events. Choosing an unregulated company can mean you have no legal recourse if things go wrong or they don’t fulfill contractual obligations- this is something you should avoid at all costs.
Choosing a company with strong professional affiliations will also ensure you get professional and high-quality service. Associations like the Canadian Association of Movers (CAM) and the Better Business Bureau (BBB) hold their members to high professional standards and are an extra level of protection against bad dealings.
Check Reviews and Recommendations
Word of mouth is still one of the most powerful tools when it comes to choosing a professional office and commercial moving company. Do some searching online, looking for good and bad reviews and experiences. Reach out through your network and see if any colleagues have recommendations or warnings about certain companies.
Be careful to vet any and all reviews- remember that if it seems too good to be true, it probably is.
Look for the Right Services
Depending on your needs and requirements, different movers may or may not be able to satisfy your wishes. Some office movers are not equipped to handle large office movers or may be better suited to local rather than long-distance moving. Inquire with office and commercial moving companies about their services and ensure they properly align with your needs before signing any contracts or putting any money down.
Set a Budget and Timeframe
Before you start the search for your office movers in Calgary, be realistic about the cost and timeline of your office or commercial move. Consider factors like the size of your office, the distance of the move, and any additional services like packing or unpacking. These all factor into the price, and it’s best to go in prepared with practical numbers to prevent any surprises.
Also, consider the timeframe of your move. Moving a 200 person office will take considerably longer than a 10 person business. Plan a reasonable timeline, and work with your office moving specialist to ensure everything gets done on time. If you aren’t too sure of how to create a plan, your office moving specialist will have advice on the best way to approach your specific move, offering personalized advice and information.

A very positive experience. We had dozens of desks, lots of broken materials, and no elevator. Matco helped me organize the move, supplied the labels and information I needed, checked in with me regularly, and on move day sent a great crew that were efficient, and cheerful (did I mention no elevator! lol). Matco also helped our charity source additional donations and materials at reduced prices. Will be using them again.
Had another great experience with Ken & the Matco team. Purchased some furniture a year ago, was very happy with the service, value and quality so we came back for more this summer. More than happy with everything. I'm sure I'll be back.
Matco made my move to Ontario from Alberta as smooth as it could have been. My coordinator was great and always responded in a timely manner when I reached out with questions. The actual movers were great and got the job, at both ends, done in a timely and efficient manner. I would highly recommend Matco for your move.
Ken and team at Matco was amazing! They delivered our cabinet without any problems and were very professional!
Ken was super friendly and helpful. Gave a discount for bulk order.Very quick to respond to communications.
Amazing Staff, very professional and keep us updated on delivery timesHighly recommend Matco Moving
Very happy with the service and professionalism of the team. They made my move a lot easier than I anticipated. The time/cost estimate was very accurate. The moving team was very polite, professional and a pleasure to interact with. Highly recommended!
We just finished a fairly big office move and the move is all done in far less time than I expected. I have to say that the movers at Matco did a highly professional job and really put their muscles into it! I can’t say enough about how efficient and careful they were; nothing got broken or lost and changes and additions were accommodated immediately. It's great to see such service these days!
Borger Group of Companies has been using Matco Moving Solutions for over 6 years and we can't say enough good things about this company. They moved our 100 team office to Balzac and have been the source of most of our office furniture and furniture disposal needs over the years. Highly recommended!
My experience with Matco was excellent, and I recommend using these moving services. This moving company has a professional and organized crew focusing on helping customers and delivering valuable service with minimum stress and on time.Thank you, Matco, for making my move happen!
Ken was very helpful with finding a solution for me, delivery was prompt and the guys did a great job. I'll look to use them again in the future!
Excellent shopping experience. Ken was very organized and helpful in the purchasing and loading of the shelving units we purchased. Items were used but in excellent condition and the price was very reasonable..Will be back this week for another purchase!
I have a 44x12ft mobile home with wheels,it need to bring from Williston, North Dakota to Athabasca, Alberta home, please quote me the price , thanks k
Matco assisted us in relocating from Calgary to the West Coast. Throughout the entire process, their professional team was very helpful and did everything necessary to ensure our move went smoothly. For such a long distance move, we felt very little stress. Would highly recommend their services to anyone endeavoring a relocation whether across town or country.
Amazing experience, we were looking for used office furniture and stumbled on this warehouse. We were pleased with the service we got from Ken, he was so knowledgeable, really friendly and very helpful. He helped me move everything to my vehicle.Will definitely come back again for future purchases, highly recommend if you want good savings on quality office furniture with amazing customer service.
All of the above. The stress was taken from me thru the full process. The first time giving me an estimate, thorough, Rob did a great job...stored my furniture for 3 mos while I looked for a new home. I checked out their warehouse, and the stress was gone when I saw how they cared for my stuff.Finally moved me to a new home, again, right on time, the crew carried my belongings as if it was their own, ...just had the house fully painted, and no marks on the walls from the movers. From sales staff, admin, storage, it was a good ride.Schulz
