Trusted Residential & Local Movers for Your Home in Calgary

Calling local movers in Calgary, when you are moving across town or just across the street, can help you save time and reduce stress. You can trust the residential movers at Riteway Movers in Calgary to get your local move done right. With our experience, you can rest assured that our crews will treat your property with respect and care at all times during the moving process. After we’ve done an estimate and determined the size and scope of your move, we will send a crew of between two to six experienced movers to get the job done quickly and efficiently.

Local Movers in Calgary at Flexible Rates


Local moves are billed by the hour. The final rate depends on the following factors:

  • Truck size
  • Number of movers
  • Driving time (including time between our location, your location and the final destination)
  • Cost of travel charge
  • Packing material
  • Storage

The moving time officially begins when our movers arrive at your move-out location and continues until the work is completed at your final destination, including time spent traveling between your locations. Please note that moves may take slightly longer than expected if you live at a location with an elevator, multiple flights of stairs, or if there is a long walk from where the truck can park to your front door

Plan Your Move in Advance


We recommend that you make moving arrangements with our residential movers a minimum of one to two weeks before the desired move-out date in order to guarantee the availability of our team. It doesn’t matter if you’re moving your office or your entire home; our moving team can get your belongings to your new Calgary location safe and sound.

Pack Your Belongings Early


Planning your move means you need to make sure you start packing early enough before your scheduled moving date. Leaving packing to the last minute can cause you to be careless or forget things, which can lead to broken belongings or broken hearts. Don’t forget your child’s favourite toy and don’t hastily pack your fine china. Packing early means that you get the right boxes and packaging beforehand; then make sure you take the time to carefully pack each item and label each box. If you don’t have time to pack on your own, you can always contact Riteway Movers for our packing services as well.

Choose the Right Residential Movers


Another part of planning in advance is choosing the right mover. Choosing Riteway Movers can help reduce your stress and make the moving process easier in general. But how do you know we’re the best? You’ll know why you should choose Riteway Movers in Calgary when you follow these guidelines:

  • Choose a mover who offers at-home estimates – if the moving company you’ve called says they can do a price estimate over the phone, say no! As listed above, many factors go into pricing so make sure the company you choose does a thorough estimate. 
  • Don’t pay a large deposit – reputable residential movers in Calgary won’t ask for cash or a large deposit before the move. You should only be required to pay upon delivery so you know your items will get to their new home.
  • Avoid companies with several names – to avoid being assessed by the Better Business Bureau (BBB) some companies do business under multiple names. Look for a local address and ask for information about licensing and insurance to make sure you’re not dealing with a scam artist. 
  • Find references and reviews – if your family and friends can’t recommend any local movers in Calgary, look up reviews of the companies you’re considering from verified sources such as the BBB. 
  • Never sign a blank contract – make sure all aspects of a verbal agreement are put into writing before letting a company move your belongings. The estimate, extra fees, and the pick-up and delivery dates should all be listed. You’ll also want to check and make sure all of your items are listed so that you can file a claim for anything that goes missing.
