When people think about moving services, they think it’s mostly about the transportation to and from your new home. However, full service moving companies provide a wide variety of moving-related services. This blog will highlight what services are included and the benefits.
What Does A Full Service Moving Company Provide?
A full service moving company handles your move from start to finish. They can help you pack your belongings, inventory them, wrap and protect your furniture, load them onto the moving truck, transport those items to your new home, and then unload your belongings and place them in their desired location. Other moving services include the disassembly and reassembly of large furniture pieces that are too large to be moved. If you require storage services during your Calgary or Edmonton move, they will provide a safe, heated and secured storage space for your belongings until you are ready for them.
Moving Boxes & Supplies
A full service moving company can provide moving boxes, paper, tape, bubble wrap, mattress bags etc. They will also supply furniture blankets or wrapping supplies and especially boxes for hanging clothes, mirrors and pictures. Hiring a moving company that can supply all of these items will save you money and time from going to a variety of hardware and supply stores yourself.
One of the most time-consuming and tedious parts of the moving process is packing. A full service moving company like Matco Moving Solutions can provide you with packing services in Calgary and Edmonton. The movers will pack up your entire home and can do this in a fraction of the time it would take you. On average, a full apartment can often be packed in a few hours and a full house can be done in 1-2 days depending on your contents. Professional movers have experience packing fragile and valuable items like artwork, sculptures, pictures and glass.
Furniture Disassembly & Reassembly
Moving Services in Calgary and Edmonton will ensure your large furniture pieces are protected and transported safely from your old home and into your new home. To do this, the movers will need to disassemble certain furniture pieces like tables, beds and large entertainment units and then reassemble them at your final destination.
Donating Food Items
Many full service moving companies will take any non-perishable food items you do not want to take with you and donate them to their local food bank at no charge.
Transporting Your Belongings
Moving companies in Calgary and Edmonton will safely transport your belongings from your old home to your new home. This applies to local moves only a few blocks away, or long distance moves across Canada. Regardless of the distance, the moving company will give you a window of how long it will take your shipment to get to your new location, so you can be prepared for when your shipment arrives.
If you have large, valuable or fragile items that require special attention and handling, full service moving companies can help. They will move items like pianos, hot tubs, pool tables, artwork, electronics and other specialty items. These items require planning, specific materials and equipment to get these items safely to your new location without damage.
You may need your household belongings stored for a few days, weeks or months. Full service moving companies like Matco offer a variety of storage solutions to meet your unique needs. Your belongings are held in a secure and heated warehouse where they are protected until you need them. The facility is protected with a security system, cameras and restricted access for extra protection. This service is great for those who don’t want to fill up their garage with stuff they don’t require regularly, or for homeowners who are in the process of downsizing.
