Residential moving FAQs
Is there a booking deposit?
To ensure we can best serve all our clients, last-minute cancellations are subject to a cancellation fee. When booking your move, we ask our clients to provide a pre-authorized debit form, credit card information, or a deposit, all of which is refundable up to 72 hours before the scheduled move.
How far in advance do I have to book my move?
Book your move a few weeks in advance to confirm your ideal move date and time. Forgot to book ahead of time? Don’t worry. We know you have a lot to think about when moving, we’re here for you. Alta Moving has various moving teams and is usually successful at scheduling moves for your desired date and time, even with shorter notice.
Do I have to pay for travel time?
Nope! Unlike most movers, Alta Moving does not charge for travel time from your first location to your destination. Instead, we charge an hourly rate and a flat truck fee of $65 within Edmonton city limits – the lowest in the industry.
How does your hourly billing work and is there a minimum charge?
The minimum charge is two hours and the truck fee. After two hours, additional time is billed in 15-minute increments.
How do I pay?
Your moving team will be equipped with a debit/credit machine on site. Cash and e-transfers are also accepted as payment. We do not accept cheques.
