Dependable Long-Distance Movers

Our durable moving supplies and horizontal lifting strategies coupled with unmatched customer service along the way make it possible for us to deliver your belongings in perfect, pre-transport condition no matter the distance.

A hassle-free long-distance move requires a great deal of planning and coordination. Since moving cross-province or cross-country takes more time (often resulting in more waste), our portable storage services and disposal bins keep the clutter at bay. Portable storage can be provided long-distance and stored for short or long periods of time while you prepare for your long-distance move. Once you’re ready to have your belongings shipped, we can deliver to any address in Canada with the help of our partners at Allied Van Lines. You can also travel with Frogboxes and the nearest Frogbox affiliate in any major Canadian city will pick them up from your new home!

Moving FAQ

How Long Before My Move Should I Hire Movers And Begin The Process?2021-01-28T11:54:38-06:00

ALTA MOVING accommodates moves booked and planned in advance as well as moves booked on shorter notice. It is ideal to book your move at least a week in advance so that you have the opportunity to take advantage of your 25 free Frogboxes that will be delivered sanitized and ready for your use a few days before your move. Even if you need to move on short notice, reach out to us. We are usually able to help, even for last-minute moves!

How Expensive Is It To Move In Edmonton?2021-01-28T11:57:26-06:00

The cost of moving services in Edmonton varies based on how far you’re moving and how many belongings you have. It also depends on whether you want to take advantage of bundling services, such as storage, packing services, or packing supplies. We can provide an estimate of your moving costs. If you require additional time or services on moving day, we charge in 15-minute increments to ensure that you only pay for what you need. Additionally, we don’t start charging until we show up to your home or office.

Do I Have To Pay For Travel Time?2021-01-28T11:57:13-06:00

Unlike other moving companies in Edmonton, we do not charge for travel time to your initial address or when we leave your final address. We employ a minimal flat “truck fee” to account to ensure you are not charged for unexpected circumstances, such as time spent in traffic.

We do not start billing until our truck arrives at your initial address and we stop billing right when we leave your final address. This means you only pay for the time we spend moving your belongings!

We also bill in 15-minute increments after a 2-hour minimum to continue the savings, while making sure you have all of the support you need to fully complete your move.

How Long Will It Take For My Items To Be Moved?2021-01-28T11:58:43-06:00

We do our very best to facilitate our moves quickly and efficiently. Your moving schedule is extremely important to us. Individual moving times may vary based on the total weight of your shipment, any number of special items to transport, local and/or long-distance weather conditions and other unforeseen variables. You’ll receive all the details of your move from your experienced moving manager well ahead of your move.

Is A Portable Storage Unit Included In My Move Cost?2021-01-28T12:00:14-06:00

Our weatherproof portable storage containers can be loaded and transported from point A to point B, but if your items must be stored beyond moving day, our containers are available at an additional charge per month.
