One of the differences between local and long distance is the capacity of the truck or van used for transportation. Many movers in Edmonton offer an hourly rate, while long distance is billed based on the size of the vehicle used. Either way space is a key factor. Expert organization must be utilized when relocating a multi bedroom house, taking into consideration the amount and size of furniture and other items that can fit inside the truck. At Action Moving and Storage, we value speed, efficiency, and organization. We have 3, 5 and 7 ton moving trucks. We can supply you with packing supplies and moving supplies as needed.

Moving and Storage Services in Edmonton
Action Moving and Storage started helping Albertans move in 1988. We are a professional moving company that truly cares about customer satisfaction. The tips below will help you (and us) to ensure a smooth and organized long distance or local move. We also provide residential and business relocation services. We have provided office moves for several large organizations.
When planning major moves for your home or office, be sure to give yourself time to organize. Assess how many persons are needed for the move. Try to spread out the work. Pack a few containers every day a month before moving. Try not to move on very busy days, near the beginning or end of each month or around holidays.
Determine what accessories you will need: bubble pack, tape, drop cloths, mattress and furniture covers and packing containers. Have a garage sale or donate unneeded items. Discard all flammables, such as paint and gasoline, at the appropriate recycling facilities.
Keep the following supplies handy for packing:
- Marking pens, bubble wrap, newspapers and tissue
- Tape and scissors
- Tape measure
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. Provide your movers with important information by labeling each unit and indicate the following: 1) Which room it should go in. 2) Whether it is fragile. Cushion contents with packing materials such as bubble wrap, newspaper or tissue. Save room by packing things in your towels, sheets and blankets. Pack books tightly on end. Have rugs and draperies cleaned before moving and leave them in the wrappings for the move. Pack medicines in leak proof containers. Carry all valuables with you.
Moving 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.
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.
