If you need to move some heavy furniture or appliances soon, then our professional movers in Calgary have exactly what you need to know so you can do it as safely as possible.

Heavy furniture and appliances usually present the biggest challenge when relocating to a new place. That's why most home or condo sales generally include the appliances because the previous owners don't want to deal with the hassle of moving them.

The Safest Way to Move Heavy Furniture or Appliances

There's really only one guaranteed way to safely move heavy furniture or appliances. Since we're a moving company in Calgary that specializes in heavy furniture moving and appliance relocations, you can probably guess what it is. That's right. You need to hire the pros to help you out. But it isn't that simple. There are a lot of things you need to do to make sure you pick the right professional movers to relocate your prized furniture and appliances. Let's take a look at what they are.

Do your research

We're glad you aren't too upset with us for the ol' bait and switch and have decided to stick around for the rest of the article. It's still going to contain a lot of good information, promise. And did you really want to have to move your extremely heavy furniture or expensive appliances on your own? We didn't think so.

The first step in moving your heavy furniture or appliances in the safest way will take you online and through your Rolodex. You'll want to search for Calgary movers who actually specialize in relocating heavy furniture or appliances and check out their reviews and testimonials. You should also tap your friends and family to see if they know of any moving companies that they would recommend. Or avoid.


Get some quotes

Now that you've got a list of recommended or highly-rated moving companies in Calgary that specialize in relocating heavy furniture or appliances, it's time to compare them based on cost. Before you call them to inquire about their rate though, make sure you have a very good idea of how much stuff you need moved and how far away the relocation will be.

One way you can gauge how much stuff you have is by simply counting the number of rooms in your current place. If you live in a two-bedroom condo or a five-bedroom house, the person who picks up the phone at the moving company you're getting a quote from should have a pretty good idea of how much it's going to cost to relocate your contents. As for distance, just head online and use one of the maps currently offered by search engines to find out the exact number of kilometres your new place is from your old one.

Double and triple-check that your movers are adequately insured and have WCB coverage

We can't stress this part of the process enough. It's extremely critical that you confirm the moving company you've decided to hire has up to date and adequate insurance and liability coverage to ensure your possessions and overall financial status aren't put at risk. Ask to see a copy of their current policies and make sure they haven't lapsed.

If your stuff gets lost or goes missing during the move, proper insurance will cover the cost to replace the items. And if one of the movers gets hurt while transporting your possessions, you could be on the hook if the moving company doesn't have WCB coverage. You'll also want to make sure that they have liability coverage in case the moving company ends up damaging something, or heaven forbid, causes bodily harm or death to a person. Because this is such an important aspect of selecting the right movers, we always recommend using a local moving company when relocating. If they're located in your city, there's less of a chance they're a fly-by-night operation and will disappear at the first sign of trouble.


Sit back, relax, and let the pros handle everything

Now that you've done all the legwork and research and selected the best moving company in Calgary to help with your heavy furniture or appliances, you can just sit back and relax while they do what they do best. You can also rest easy knowing the movers have adequate insurance and liability coverage, so in case anything goes wrong, you'll be covered. 

It truly is the safest way to move heavy furniture or appliances.
