Our Moving Checklist

Make your reservation with our full-service moving company before our calendar is full. The sooner you schedule your moving day for larger relocations or commercial moves, the better we can accommodate your preferred date. Contact one of our customer service representatives to tailor your moving plan to your budget, deadlines, and the moving services you require, such as moving labor, packing services, transportation, or storage options.

Containers are another way to transport your valuables. They are built with the intention of enduring and withstanding harsh conditions in all types of weather. This cost-effective option is ideal for families and individuals who do not require their items to be shipped directly to them.

Your personal items can be easily loaded and unloaded from our trucks or containers. They will also be kept separate and will not be mixed with anything else during your move. We can transport your personal items in containers as a cost-effective option as one of the top long-distance shifting companies in Canada.

The containers can also be used for storing valuables temporarily during or after your move.
