I have better news for you. It’s possible to save money on moving. Let’s dive in.

Here is an easy way to save money

You can do some of the work on your own. In this case, the working hours of movers can be reduced, which means that the total amount will be less. 

  • Packing process takes a lot of time. Start packing well in advance. Leave only the fragile packing for professional movers. This type of work should still be entrusted to professionals. 
  • Don’t forget to declutter your place. Donate the unused items, books, clothes, furniture, and appliances. 

Important: if you are not sure that you can disassemble and assemble furniture without damaging it or without a significant investment of time – contact professional movers. 

Distance from Calgary to Vancouver, major routes and bridges.

Just like you read earlier, it’s approximately 1057 km from Calgary, AB to Vancouver, BC. Of course, this all depends on the exact pick-up and delivery location:

  • The distance between Calgary and Vancouver via Trans-Canada Highway/BC-1 W is 972.7 km
  • The southern route via Highway 3/the Crowsnest Highway takes about 14 hours of driving in a good weather condition.
  • Coquihalla Highway 5 connects the southern Trans-Canada route (Highway 1) with the northern Trans-Canada/Yellowhead route (Highway 16), providing the shortest land connection between Vancouver and both Edmonton and Calgary. Travelers choose this road most often.

In winter, people use both routes, but it’s not for the fun of the road trip, it’s to get from Calgary, AB to Vancouver, BC as fast as possible. Snowy, busy roads can create numerous problems during transportation. Professional moving companies at Camovers will cope with any difficulties!

Many of you probably have heard about a moving scam. How to avoid it?

When you think of how to avoid moving scams and rogue movers, Camovers have the best advice for you!

Never sign half of a contract

When you see that the job is not done, the contract is not complete – don’t sign it. Make sure all the information is accurate in the contract, only after that sign it. Make a photo of the contract, you might need it one day.

Are you planning to do the packing on your own?

We would recommend you to pack all the personal and delicate items yourself. You might have delicate objects, expensive jewelry or important documents. Even a professional packing service might misplace your items.

What’s included as an additional moving fee?

The additional moving fees might include:

  • stairs,
  • narrow streets or
  • detours,
  • extremely heavy items
  • bulky objects.

Reviewing the moving quotes, don’t choose the cheapest one. Always ask about the additional moving fees and choose the top-rated moving service with transparent rates and fees.

How to find out the weight of the household items?

When you plan to relocate to a 4 bedroom house or just a studio apartment – you should know the approximate weight. There is an industry average weight based on the commonly used furniture and appliances.

  •               For example, your 1-bedroom house or an apartment usually weighs in the range of 450 and 1350 kilograms (1000 – 3000 pounds).
  •               When you plan to move from a 2-bedroom apartment or a house, the total weight will be between 1350 and 2700 kilograms (3000 – 6000 pounds).
  •                A typical 3-bedroom house weighs in the range of 2700 and 4500 kilograms (6000 – 10,000 pounds).

We want you to understand that this is the industry average. You might have a certain amount of unique or antique items that are extremely heavy. Or maybe you own the IKEA furniture, or you move only your personal stuff, no furniture at all. So the weight of your apartment or house will be different from the average industry data. Our household furniture weight calculator will help you to get more accurate numbers. Remember, the moving bill from Calgary to Vancouver will be based on the actual weight plus the moving distance.

Get your new home ready

When the moving project from Calgary to Vancouver finally scheduled it’s time to focus on preparing your new home. 

When relocating to an apartment, check with the building management on how to schedule the elevator. If there is no elevator, inform your moving company about it. Stairs will be added to your bill as an extra fee.  

Give a call to the building’s landlord and inform them about your moving day. Make sure there is enough space outside to park the moving truck.
