Here is a list of helpful resources and insights that we have gathered from moving professionals.

Find answers and general information

A list of frequently asked questions to help you understand how it works.

1. When is the best time to move?

The summer period is the most expensive as most people are moving their residences at this time. Especially near the end of the month or the beginning of the month (from about the 25th to the 5th) are most expensive and most quickly to be fully booked.

By contrast, moves in the fall or the winter are generally much more affordable and tend to have availability.

2. How long does it take to move?

Moving time will depend on many things including amount of furniture, number of movers, any special items, access or special conditions.

Here are the average times we have discovered from years of moves:


Residence2 Movers3 Movers
Bachelor3 to 4 hoursNot normally required
Junior 1 Bedroom Apt. (1 person)3 to 5 hoursNot normally required
Bedroom Apt. (1 person)4 to 6 hoursNot normally required
1 Bedroom Apt. (2 person)5 to 9 hours4 to 6 hours
2 Bedroom House7 to 9 hours5 to 7 hours
2 Bedroom Apt. (2 person)5 to 8 hours
2 Bedroom Apt. (Family)6 to 8.5 hours
3 Bedroom House7 to 9 hours
3 Bedroom Apt.8 to 10 hours


For 4 bedroom houses and larger, we may recommend 4 movers or more to speed up the move.

For very large moves, we work with customers to find a balance between time spend and cost.

3. How is the cost of my move determined?

Moving costs are different depending on whether it is local, long-distance or corporate or warehousing. The following standards are widely applicable.

For local moves, cost is largely determined by the amount of time it takes.


For long-distance moves, which are almost always fixed price, they are determined by weight and distance.


For corporate moves, which are almost always fixed price, there are a lot of variables included which are discussed beforehand. These include window to move. The allowed time slots for corporate moves are often narrow and unforgiving. All of these, including a strategic plan for moving are discussed directly with clients for all corporate moves.

4. How and when should I pay?

Although there are rare exceptions, in general the flow is like this:

After receiving a quote -> Place a deposit to reserve a spot -> After move is completed, to pay the balance owned minus the deposit.

We accept most major forms of payment. If you are unsure though, you can call us during business hours to confirm at (604)317-1986

5. Can my possessions be stored temporarily?

Yes! Absolutely.
