We booked through Shannon and she said she would have a top notch crew for our move. She delivered! We had 5 outstanding guys work hard to move us in 1 day! For reference this was a 4,000 sq ft home. They were professional and friendly. They got the job done and were helpful all day. I can’t say enough about them! Thanks guys!

Move Day Safety & Security

Moving day can be stressful and exhausting for many Edmontonians. However, hiring a reliable storage and moving company can alleviate much of that burden. 

The best Edmonton mover and storage companies offer various service levels to suit your needs. Coordinating and organizing a move is a full-time job, and at Action Moving and Storage, we take that responsibility seriously.

Our commitment to safety and security sets us apart from other local residential movers. Often, corners are cut to save time, leading to damaged or broken furniture and valuables. 

At Action Moving and Storage, we offer secure storage services with the latest expertise in safe storage practices. We ensure your possessions are well cared for, from loading and transportation to their final destination.

Moving further away? No problem! Our dedicated team also offers long distance, quality moving services from British Columbia to Saskatchewan.

One of the differences between local and long distance is the capacity of the truck or van used for transportation.

We truly appreciated Chris and Travis! They did an awesome job of getting us to our new home. They were professional in attitude, and efficient in getting the job done. There was no damage to any of our household furniture and other items. And they ensured that we had everything where we needed it to be.

Cody, Steve, and Isaac were phenomenal! They were friendly, efficient, and incredibly hard working. This is the 2nd time that I've used Action Moving and both times I've been very impressed; from booking, to the move itself, everyone I've dealt with has been great. I highly recommend this company for a stress-free experience!

Moving Tips from Edmonton Moving Companies

When preparing for your move, having the right supplies and strategies can make a significant difference. Here are some essential tips to help Edmonton movers have a smooth and efficient moving experience:

Moving Supplies to Have on Hand:

Having the right packing supplies on hand is crucial for an organized packing process. Ensure you have these essentials to make your packing as efficient as possible:

  • Marking pens
  • Bubble wrap
  • Newspapers and tissue paper
  • Packing tape and scissors
  • Tape measure

General Packing Tips:

Packing your belongings properly can prevent damage and make unpacking easier. Follow these guidelines to pack like a pro:

  • Use strong containers that can be secured tightly.
  • Pack audio-video equipment in their original packaging.
  • Label cables and tighten transit screws. If removing screws, tape them to the objects they are removed from.
  • Avoid loading more than 50 pounds into one container.
  • Label each box with important information:
    • Which room it should go in
    • Whether it is fragile
  • Cushion contents with packing materials such as bubble wrap, newspaper, or tissue.
  • Save space by packing items in towels, sheets, and blankets.
  • Pack books tightly on end.
  • Have rugs and draperies cleaned before moving and leave them in their wrappings.
  • Pack medicines in leak-proof containers.
  • Carry all valuables with you.

Planning Your Move:​

  • Start Early: Give yourself ample time to organize and check all the details.
  • Assess Manpower: Determine how many people will be needed for the move.
  • Spread Out the Work: Pack a few containers every day, starting a month before your move.
  • Avoid Peak Times: Try not to move on very busy days, such as the beginning or end of each month or around holidays.
  • Gather Necessary Accessories: Ensure you have bubble wrap, tape, drop cloths, mattress and furniture covers, and packing containers.
  • Declutter: Have a garage sale or donate unneeded items to reduce the volume of what you need to move.
  • Dispose of Hazardous Materials: Discard all flammables, such as paint and gasoline, at the appropriate recycling facilities.

Additional Tips for a Smooth Move:

  • Create an Inventory List: Keep a detailed list of all items packed and their corresponding box numbers.
  • Pack an Essentials Box: Include items you’ll need immediately upon arrival, such as toiletries, a change of clothes, basic kitchen items, and important documents.
  • Use Clear Plastic Bins: For items you’ll need right away, use clear bins so you can easily see the contents.
  • Take Photos: Before disassembling furniture or electronics, take photos to help with reassembly.
  • Notify Important Parties: Inform utility companies, banks, and other essential services of your move to ensure a smooth transition.

Moving House Plants & Pets

How To Move With House Plants

Place your plants in a black plastic bag, along with a bug/pest strip. Close the bag and keep in a cool area overnight to kill any pests on the plant or in the soil. The day before your move, place the plants in a cardboard container. Hold them with dampened newspaper or packing paper. Use paper to cushion the leaves and use a final layer of wet paper on top to keep them moist. If you must leave your plants behind, then take cuttings. Put them in a plastic bag with wet paper towels around them.

On the day of your move, set the boxes aside and mark “DO NOT LOAD” so our house movers won’t place the items on the moving van. Close the boxes and punch air holes in the tip before leading into your car. When moving, park your car in a shaded area in the summer and in a sunny spot in the winter. Upon arrival, unpack the plants as soon as possible and sit them in a place that is not too sunny until you can place them.

How To Move With Pets

Cats and dogs can be taken in your car so remember to take along enough food and water and a leash for longer trips. Animals do get carsick and require frequent stops along the way. If necessary pets should be transported in pet containers. Where necessary carry your pet’s documentation and health certificates with you.

Moving can be overwhelming and time consuming; Action Moving and Storage is your smart choice. We are quick and efficient and offer reliable moving services.
