Moving homes in Calgary (like a pro)

Moving homes can be a challenging and time-consuming task, especially if you are on a tight budget. Even more so if you live in and around Calgary. And if you are someone obsessed with planning everything to the T like me, well, the stress is unreal. However, with careful planning and a few simple tips, you can make the process smoother and more efficient. Jotting down everything here in easy-to-follow steps so that you don’t have to:
Start Early: Begin the moving process as early as possible. This will give you plenty of time to organize and plan your move, and avoid any last-minute stress.
Make a List: Make a list of all the items you need to move, including furniture, appliances, and personal items. This will help you keep track of everything and make sure nothing is left behind.
Sort and Declutter: Before you start packing, sort through your belongings and get rid of anything that you no longer need. This will make your move lighter and more manageable.
Label Boxes: When packing, label each box with its contents and the room it belongs in. This will make unpacking easier and quicker.
Use Proper Packing Materials: Use sturdy boxes and bubble wrap to protect your belongings during the move. This will help ensure that everything arrives at your new home in good condition.
Hire Professional Movers: If you have a lot of heavy furniture or a large number of items, it may be more efficient to hire professional movers. They will have the necessary equipment and expertise to handle your belongings safely and quickly. However, most of the time, this turns out to be an expensive option. So, think how it’ll affect your budget.
Use a Moving Truck or Rental Trailer: Doesn’t matter if you are moving long distance or just a couple of blocks away, consider using a rental trailer to transport your belongings. This can be a cost-effective and convenient way to move, especially if you have a lot of items.
Notify Utilities and Services: Make sure to notify your utility providers, banks, and other services of your move, so they can transfer your accounts to your new home.
Shameless plug: If you are looking for a rental trailer in Calgary to move houses in a cost-effective way, try Hetman Rental.
