Why Hire a Moving Company for Your Local Move?

Local MoveHiring a reliable local mover, like Jay’s, your Calgary movers will help you achieve your local move in an affordable, timely and safe manner. We have over 50 years of experience helping families and businesses – in Calgary and across Alberta - with both long distance and local moving.

Many people think they can save a buck by moving their own household, but neglect to factor in all the costs of doing it themselves. What is your time worth? Do you have a lot of friends or family willing to give their time and energy (and pickup trucks?). What happens if you put your back out, or your buddy reverses into the street causing an accident? Perhaps your local move involves downsizing a senior member of your family. What if you aren’t able to be there to facilitate such a move? There is any number of scenarios and risks that could prove costly!


Call Jay's at (403) 775-6066 now for an estimate!

Jay’s local moving services offer a modern, dependable truck and experienced movers for an hourly rate. We will load your belongings, transport and unload, placing cartons in the new location as per your instructions.


Tips for your local move:

  • Start with a comprehensive moving checklist;
  • Hold a garage or moving sale to reduce your moving costs, and make some extra cash;
  • Book your services well in advance, to be sure you can get help when you need it - if possible, avoid month-end moving;
  • If you’re moving in or out of an apartment or condo, book an elevator for the day of your move, and
  • Mark each box clearly with the name of the room where you want the movers to place it.

Jay’s Moving and Storage can provide reusable containers for you to pack your belongings in, or sturdy boxes that you can return for a refund (as long as they are not damaged!).

If you need to move a senior friend or relative, and cannot oversee the move, Jay’s can offer the services of an experienced moving consultant to manage the move from start to finish.

Quality moving services don’t have to be expensive, call the experts at Jay's, your Calgary movers at (403) 775-6066 to help you with your move across Calgary!
