My favorite type of customer is someone that is up for a laugh. Having someone to joke with throughout the day makes a tough job go by so much quicker. In the best case scenario, the customer will be too busy laughing to worry about their stress on move day. Even when it is For McMurray levels of cold, nothing passes the time faster than humor. The next thing you know, the job is done, and everyone is in a better mood. So, if you're looking for a great customer experience, look for someone who is up for a laugh, and you won't be disappointed.

What’s my favorite part of being an Owner Operator? I don’t have to answer to anyone but the customer. This makes it so much easier to just focus on moving. At the end of the day, I have no one to report to. I started with OO Movers years ago as a helper to Brent. He taught me all the tricks he learned in over 25 years of moving around Fort Saskatchewan. Brent has retired and I bought his truck so I am my own boss and could not be happier.

Moving appeals to me because it keeps me young. I’ve been moving to Sherwood Park for nearly 20 years, but feel like I could keep going forever. The toughest job I’ve ever done was a piano move from a third-floor room. One of the straps broke as we were going down the stairs, but we managed to carefully guide the piano out of the house without a scratch. I could never do a sit-down office job, I need to be on the move. So, I’m thankful for the opportunity to keep moving and stay young. Owner-operator movers are the best, and I’m proud to be one.
Spruce Grove, AB Movers

I pull a 40-foot gooseneck low-ride moving trailer behind my one-ton cab. I am a proud long-distance mover on the Alberta to BC run. Loading and unloading in Edmonton and Calgary and Spruce Grove tend to be easy with any truck because there is so much room on the streets to park and maneuver a big rig, but the flexibility of the gooseneck trailer proves its worth down the narrow alleys of downtown Vancouver‘s West End. Experience has taught me that the low-ride trailer is the best choice for this route, as it allows me to navigate tight turns and narrow streets. The low ride also helps me to keep the trailer level, which is important when hauling heavy.

Piano moving has always been my favorite kind of moving work around Fort McMurray. The first time I moved a baby grand it was overseas and a specialist showed me how to dismantle much more than is typically done in a local move. It was a thing of beauty the way that beastly huge weight was repacked in so many manageable pieces. He taught me how to move with precision which has benefited me ever since in all my piano moves. I love the challenge of getting a piano into a tight spot and the satisfaction of a job well done.
Stony Plain, AB Movers

My uncle Chris was a dispatcher for OO movers for several years and it was not long after high school I began working with them as a helper in Stony Plain. In a few years, I was driving a huge 5-ton truck in heavy traffic as easily as riding a bike. Being a good mover requires that you train with experienced and qualified men. I was lucky with my family to have this opportunity so young, and I learned a lot from my uncle and the other drivers to become a professional mover. Now I have my own business and I'm proud to say that I'm still using the same techniques and methods that I learned from my uncle.

I enjoy moving here in the St. Albert area because of the human contact and meeting interesting new people every day and helping them at this difficult time in their lives. Moving is satisfying, you come into chaos, where everyone is stressed, and by the time you leave, you can feel the weight lift off the shoulders of your clients. It is very satisfying to make people happy and to help them start a new chapter in their lives. Remember, moving is not just about the physical act of moving, it is about the emotional journey that comes with it.
Leduc, AB Movers

I started my moving career in Leduc in 2015. My very first move was a couch delivery for someone from Facebook Marketplace, I quickly realized that I had the potential for more. Over the next year, I expanded to doing small residential moves. Thanks to my strong work ethic and excellent standards of service, I now run my own crew, own 3 full-size moving trucks, and I can handle moves of any size. I have moved tens of families and businesses in the Edmonton area and I am proud to be a part of the local moving community.

My best piece of moving advice would be that preparation is key. Careful packing and organization of your belongings can cut hours off the job. It not only cuts down on the number of trips needed to and from the moving truck, but proper packing makes it easier for me to maneuver all your belongings into one truckload. Everyone wins because you pay less and I make it home on time to Maple Ridge for dinner. Moving doesn't need to be a stressful experience, so take the time to plan and prepare for the move and you'll be glad you did.
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 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.
