Quebec Moving Company
One of the most essential parts of any move is finding a moving company to transport your possessions from your existing home to your new home. Choosing a quality moving company can go a long way to alleviating much of the stress associated with moving. How do you find a good Quebec moving company? We have some suggestions.
How to select a moving company in Quebec
There are a lot of Canadian moving companies to choose from. To select the one that will work best for you and your family, we suggest:
- Talk with multiple moving companies. It might seem like a timesaver to just hire the first moving company you talk with, but that's not smart business. To make sure the quote you're getting is in line with the industry norms and that you are getting all of the services you need and deserve, we suggest you get estimates from at least three movers.
- Don't make your decision solely on price. We understand that the price of the move is important. However, it's a good idea to also consider the moving company's experience, their reputation and what services they offer.
- Ask for referrals and more. Canadian moving companies aren't licensed like their American cousins. However, there are still ways you can gauge a company's reliability. For example, you can ask to speak with satisfied customers and look for their BBB report.
How much do movers typically cost in Quebec?
It's difficult, if not impossible to give an average estimate for a move. There are so many factors that come into play when determining the price. These include whether the move is local or long distance; the amount of possessions a family has; what additional services you choose, such as packing or extra insurance; and whether you have items that require special handling, like a pool table.
To give you a very generalized idea of the cost, a general estimate is that it costs between $600 and $800 for someone in Canada to move the contents of their one-bedroom apartment locally. A family moving the contents of a three-bedroom house would pay at least double that amount.
A long-distance move also factors in the distance the movers will have to travel and how much time it will take them to get your possessions from one house to the next.
