No matter where you are moving in Alberta, we have you covered. Work with our customer service team and it won't take long to come up with a plan.
How would you like to share the moving costs with someone else who is moving in the same general area? Split shipments allow you to do that. We keep everything organized by color coding your belongings and maintaining an inventory of what belongs to whom. We'll even use separators in the vans to keep things organized.
Split shipments are based on actual scale weight of your shipment plus the actual mileage incurred in getting to your new home. There are other charges that may apply, including origin, long carry, piano, stair flights, elevator, off route and interlining with another firm for the delivery.
This chart will help you get an idea of the approximate weight for different types of moves:
- Bachelor Apartment - 1,000 to 1,500 lbs.
- One Bedroom Apartment - 2,000 to 3,000 lbs.
- Two Bedroom Apartment - 3,000 to 5,000 lbs.
- Two Bedroom House - 4,000 to 7,000 lbs.
- Three Bedroom Apartment - 6,000 to 9,000 lbs.
- Three Bedroom House - 9,000 to 12,000 lbs.
- Four to Five Bedrooms - 9,000 to 15,000 lbs
This approach is our exclusive use moving plan. Only your belongings are loaded and scheduled for transport. As with the split shipment, we still inventory your belongings. The difference is that everything you want to move heads directly to the destination. This approach ensures your belongings arrive in a shorter time frame.
Exclusive use shipments are based on an hourly rate with additional charges as applicable. The hourly rate is determined by allowing time for loading, unloading, and the travel time based on the distance between the point of origin and the destinations.
