Moving to Calgary -
Self Moving or Professional Moving Firm
Moving from Ireland to Canada we learned the hard way, most of the pitfalls
associated with relocating. That was ten years ago, today I work
as a realtor and relocation specialist in Calgary. If I can be of assistance
sure you don't make the same mistakes, please

Self Moving or Professional
DIY Home Moving.
Moving home can be a costly
exercise. As such it's often very tempting to try and cut corners
and save a few dollars. One area that some people feel they can save
money is by not hiring a firm of professional movers. I have to
say that some years ago we went this route ourselves and boy did we
come to regret it. In our case we were only moving a few miles
across town and as such considered a professional moving company an
unneeded expense. What we didn't considerer was that moving home
requires a lot more than simply renting a large U-Drive truck. In
total we must have taken us at least five times longer to make the
move than had we used professionals. It also was the source of some
of the biggest stand up arguments my husband and I have ever had.
Most of these arguments took place in the street outside our
new home, just the thing to impress the new neighbors.
Hiring a Professional Company.
So assuming you decide that you
are going to hire a firm of professional movers how to you go about
choosing the right firm? Well perhaps the best place to start is by
asking close friends or family members for recommendations. If
that doesn't work then start looking for firms who have a proven
track record. Last and perhaps most important of all ask for a list
of client referrals who you can call. Any company worth it's salt
will have a list of clients who are willing to speak up about their
experiences with the company in question. The same by the way goes
for realtors. If a realtor can't provide you with a list of happy
past clients find another realtor!
Like I said, when it comes to the
moving thing, I have been there and have the scars to prove it. If I
can help you learn from my own experiences please don't hesitate to
call me on (403) 383-8025.
