Cochrane, AB Movers

120 Positive Reviews

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 Cochrane team. Now he has his own truck as a full partner with Owner Operator Movers Calgary. Moving has given us the opportunity to earn a living and it is a bonus that we meet and help great people every day. We are proud to be part of the Calgary community, providing a service that helps people move their belongings safely and efficiently.

I am a cheapskate by my nature and I don’t waste my customer's money either. I always think about 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 have been moving for around 7 years in Calgary and I have learned a lot of tricks to save money and time. So if you are on a budget, I am the right person for you and I will make sure you get the best value for your money without compromising on quality.

I have always enjoyed moving and have been doing it for about 10 years. Most of that time has been spent in Calgary, but I've worked all around Alberta and British Columbia.

I started off my career as a swamper learning the ropes from another Owner Operator in Cochrane - I learned the importance of good wrapping techniques to avoid damages, the correct ways to carry things so that no one gets hurt, maneuvering tips, etc. Now with 5 years of moving under my belt and my own crew I am an Owner Operator myself. When the customer is satisfied, I feel good at the end of the day too.

Moving around Airdrie appeals to my innate sense of order. I like to organize our moves in a way that is efficient and effective. I like to plan out our route and make sure that we are taking the most direct route to our destination. I love it when when I see the truck being loaded in a neat and orderly fashion. I also like to make sure that all of our belongings are properly secured and that nothing is left behind. The passion I have for organization and efficiency makes moving around Airdrie an experience that you will truly enjoy.

My moving career began a few years ago with deliveries and small moves. It didn't take long before my services were in high demand. I decided to partner with a friend of mine, who is also an experienced mover. Thanks to our excellent moving skills and outstanding customer satisfaction rates, our company rapidly expanded and I was able to establish my own company in Calgary. Now, I specialize in residential and commercial moves, as well as packing and storage services. I take pride in providing my customers with a stress-free and efficient moving experience. I am also committed to providing the highest quality of service and customer satisfaction.

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 Calgary is the feeling that you are working for your neighbors and may see them one day in the grocery store. This helps to build a sense of community and trust. I also like that I can get to know my customers and their needs better, as I am more likely to be familiar with the area and the people living there. This helps me to provide more personalized service and better meet their needs. Our goal is to make sure that our customers have a stress-free move and that their belongings are safe and secure.

2022 Mover of the Year! Moving is like a real-life game of Tetris. I love the challenge of visualizing how different items will fit together into cramped spaces and packing as many boxes and pieces of furniture into a single elevator load as possible. It helps get the job done faster. Once you are at the truck, there is another round of packing. I have 8 years of experience in rotating items in my head to safely fit all the pieces of a job into one load. I am Airdrie's best puzzle builder and I am proud to be the 2020 Mover of the Year!

Typical Employee Mover

Typical Employee Mover

  • Low wage labourer
  • Damage prone
  • Doesn't care about you

Most movers are unhappy

Low wages, no benefits or security, and brutally hard work make working for a moving company a last choice career. Employee movers are often unhappy and unskilled transient workers with a poor attitude. A mover that truly cares is often flaunted in advertising, but in reality, they are as rare as a unicorn.

Owner Operator Mover

Owner Operator Mover

  • Skilled and efficient
  • Pays for his mistakes
  • Commitment & trust

Attitude is everything

Owner Operator Movers love their work because they make great money and are their own bosses. They get to choose their helpers, who are often good friends or family and the entire team takes pride in their work. Owner Operators are happy movers, rarely seen in other moving companies.

Calgary Local & Long Distance Movers

Movers near you or across Canada

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.

Calgary 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.

Owner Operators Movers Calgary also provides moving service to these nearby areas.
