I’m a very busy individual - these guys made my move a cinch! Ruslan and team were phenomenal. They accommodated a late start (my fault) without delay and were efficient and professional. Do yourself a favour and utilize this team for your moving needs. 10/10

Owning my own Calgary moving company has given me many opportunities

Owning my own Calgary moving company has given me many opportunities and being a partner with OO movers has been a big help. I myself have been able to grow my business while remaining a serving mover on the OO movers group. I now own several large moving trucks. The new exciting part of the business for me is to get involved with the long distance movers group and drive the Vancouver to Calgary and Edmonton route.

Moving has given me the opportunity to earn good money

My moving company has always been a family operation. My cousin Ivan has learned the business from me after working together for several years with the Calgary team. Now he has his own truck as a full partner with Owner Operator Movers Calgary. Moving has given me the opportunity to earn good money when the work comes and to have a good time with my family when there is no work. All is good.

One of the best perks of moving is all the things customers give you

One of the best perks of moving is all the things customers give you. There is often not enough room at the new place and it is given to us or the dump. I have never bought a piece of furniture in my life. Everything in my well furnished home is a collection of carefully cultivated castoffs, always being upgraded by a new treasure and then being sent on to my networks of used goods consumers.

I am a cheap guy and so are my moves

I am a cheapskate by my nature and I don’t waste my customers money either. I always think how I would feel if I saw my money being wasted so I always try to be as efficient as I can and also look for ways the customer can save money by helping out themselves or by organizing the move. I am a the cheap Calgary mover guy and so are my moves.

Moving appeals to my innate sense of order

Moving appeals to my innate sense of order. I like to organize things and packing a truck is actually satisfying as you watch the rooms of the house empty out. It always amazes the clients that their whole chaotic life can be compressed into a giant rectangle. It is clean work and the pay is good when you include the tips. I wish my own Calgary home and life was as ordered and simple as packing and unpacking my truck.

I love the challenge of packing as many boxes and pieces of furniture into a single elevator load as possible

Moving is like a real game of Tetris. You have to be able to visualize how different items will fit together into cramped spaces. I love the challenge of packing as many boxes and pieces of furniture into a single elevator load as possible. Also, it helps get the job done quicker. Once you are at the truck, there is another round of packing. You need to be able to rotate items in your head so you can safely fit all the pieces of a job into one load. I am Calgary’s best puzzle builder.

Now this year I have my own truck and I am moving every day as a full partner

I first started with a partner to join the team of movers with OO Movers several years ago in Calgary. Like most partnerships ours failed because of personal differences but I still enjoyed working with the OO team. Now this year I have my own truck and I am moving every day as a full partner on the Owner Operator Movers Calgary group.

People always need to move

Moving in Calgary has been a good business for my brother and I. We began with one smaller truck and worked with the OO movers group as much as we could. It was not too long before we both saved enough to buy our own trucks. Even though the economy in Calgary fluctuates, people always need to move and my brother and I will be ready to help them.

Moving keeps me interested because I get to meet new people and visit new places every day

I started moving nearly 20 years ago. For the first while I worked with 12 different companies and learned a lot about the industry, but then decided to open up my own business. I bought my first truck a decade ago and am still going strong. Moving keeps me interested because I get to meet new people and visit new places every day.

Moving is more than a job to me

Moving is more than a job to me. I run my own company and am truly invested in the success of every single move. If you aren’t happy at the end of the job, I do my best to make things right. Through my time as a member of Owner Operator Movers in the Calgary area I’ve come to learn that my success depends on the success of your move. I live by this mantra every day that I am on the job.

I am a small move specialist

Most movers grow towards bigger trucks and the dream of hauling a huge trailer across Canada, making mega-bucks. Not me. I am a small move specialist. I am happiest helping and meeting two or three new customers every day. I like coming home at night and I like a truck I can maintain myself. If you need a small move in Calgary or to anywhere in Alberta, please book me.

The toughest item I’ve ever tackled was a stone bed. It was a queen sized slab of granite

The toughest item I’ve ever tackled was a stone bed. It was a queen sized slab of granite, all in one piece. Luckily we were working in a group of 4 so we were able to lift it, but at one point it had to go over a fence. Everyone holding it was terrified that we would break our legs if we dropped it and I think that helped give the push to maintain smooth control while we shifted it over the fence. I know I’d need a pretty soft mattress to sleep on a chunk of rock.

A lot of movers shy away from expensive, high end residential moves, but they are my favourite type

A lot of movers shy away from expensive, high end residential moves, but they are my favourite type. I love driving out of Calgary to a large house on a huge property. You never have to worry about parking and it’s awesome to know that the client is hiring you because they want the highest quality service. Often, these sort of moves have been serviced by a professional packing team ahead of my team, either other Owner Operators or another company. Having everything packaged, labelled, and protected properly makes my job easier.

What I like … is the feeling that you are working for your neighbors

Small town movers like myself rely much more on word of mouth and referrals than big city movers. What I like about living and moving in Cochrane is the feeling that you are working for your neighbors and may see them one day in the grocery store. In Calgary and Edmonton it seems customers are more like strangers passing in the night. Small town living is definitely for me.

I am glad that here at OO movers we have a discount plan

Money is tighter now in Calgary and Okotoks than I have seen in many years. I can feel that many of my clients are more concerned about their future and must be careful with their money. I am glad that here at OO movers we have a discount plan that accommodates those in need and that I keep working. It is always better to make a little money than no money.

A tall stack of pads as high as a man

Moving pads are the most expensive and important moving equipment a mover carries. They are the secret to moving without damage and a proper move involves taping padding to the furniture before it leaves the room. I have been a Calgary mover for over 10 years and now can tell the quality of a moving company by how many pads they have and how they care for them. A tall stack of pads as high as a man is the sign of a quality mover.

Flip it, turn it, or take it apart; I can make it fit

Whoever invented the double door fridge must have had a big house with big doorways. I have had to deal with this problem so many times I can look at a door now and tell you its exact width from 28 to 36 inches. If you need someone to make the big thing fit in the small place, I am your man. Flip it, turn it, or take it apart; I can make it fit. Sometimes our job is making the seemingly impossible happen.

When the customer is satisfied, I feel good at the end of the day too

I started off my career as a swamper learning the ropes from another Owner Operator; the importance of good wrapping techniques to avoid damages, the correct ways to carry things so that no one gets hurt, maneuvering tips, etc. Soon I was ready to run my own crew and become an Owner Operator myself. When the customer is satisfied, I feel good at the end of the day too.

Local & Long Distance Moving Services

Road trips! Yeah!

Calgary Local Movers

Albertans like to move a lot and Calgary once had the highest priced movers in Canada because it used to be the most expensive place to live. Times have changed and so does the economy. At Owner Operator Movers Calgary we charge the same affordable rate in all our offices and have never charged “Boom Town” rates.

Our local mover crews serve from Airdrie in the north to High River and Okotoks in the south at competitive, affordable rates. Many of our customers are not satisfied with the local movers in Red Deer and Lethbridge so we often drive there as well.

Alberta Movers

Moving from Edmonton to another city in Alberta doesn’t need to be a high cost, long distance move. Our local teams can move you to Lethbridge, Drumheller, or even to Fort McMurray at economical local move rates. Long distance movers will charge you a lot more because they need to support large trucks and pay for many expenses that are unnecessary for moves within the province.

When we move someone to Banff or Medicine Hat, we find that the most affordable way is to load the truck a day ahead. Then we can head out the next morning before traffic picks up, complete your move and drive back to Calgary the same day. This avoids you paying for a crew overnight. Careful planning and logistics are the secret to keeping moving affordable.

Alberta to BC Movers

At OO movers, we regularly run long distance moves along the “triangle Run” between Alberta and BC. Weekly in the summer, as well as biweekly year round, we run trucks between Calgary, Edmonton, and Vancouver. We also do moves from Alberta directly to Victoria or Nanaimo on Vancouver Island. Due to having offices in each city we operate in, we are able to offer a regularly scheduled and affordable system for moving from Alberta to BC.

The standard for moving long distance is to consolidate your possessions along with other customers’ in a large truck. Sharing a truck keeps the price low for everyone involved. Shipping often allows us to deliver your cargo straight from your old home to your new one, without inflating the price with expensive warehousing and unnecessary handling along the way. Our long distance moving rates are competitive per-pound values and come with our outstanding service for moving between provinces.

Canadian Movers

For many years the Canadian long distance moving companies hauled cargo from Ontario and the Maritimes out to Calgary, before continuing to the promised land of BC and Vancouver Island a few decades later. Lately things have been reversed with real estate refugees fleeing from Vancouver to more affordable cities. Eastern Canada is not just coming to Calgary for a job anymore.

OO movers Calgary is ideally positioned to help you move in either direction, all the way from Victoria to St. John’s. Our partners and network reaches to all parts of Canada and beyond. Call us today for personalized service at an awesome price.

Piano Movers and Packing Service

It takes a heavy instrument to make light music

Piano Movers

Piano moving may not be a fun job, but completing a piano move successfully gives an astonishing sense of accomplishment. For movers, it is enjoyable because it is the most careful and slow work we do. Mistakes can be extremely costly and many movers have been injured moving pianos. When you know what you are doing, the methodical steps of preparation and controlled movements that make the piano go where you want to are rewarded by a feeling of achievement once the heavy beast is safely tied down in your truck, and then again when it is proudly on show in the owners new home.

Meet the master movers in our Calgary moving company who are the heros that move our heavy cargo items like pianos, safes, pool tables and hot tubs on our piano page.

More About Piano Movers

Packing Service

Packing is no fun. When you have to do it for yourself, it seems to go on forever. Let our packing crew come in and give you a break, even if it is only for a partial job like a kitchen pack. The most important tricks for good packing are to use lots of paper for padding and to separate and label true fragiles. Let your mover know which box has grandmas plates and he will treat them like his own.

Recyclable materials are great, but still have an environmental cost. Reusable packing materials are best so save the planet and save yourself a few dollars whenever possible. Owner Operator Movers Calgary is a strong advocate of reusable packaging systems. Whenever possible, rent plastic tubs or hunt down used boxes. Liquor stores and the produce sections of grocery stores are good sources of free, used boxes.
