Moving and Storage
Hiring professional movers minimizes your risk of personal injury and property damage. Our movers are trained to secure furniture items and your property before they safely handle any piece of furniture. Our trucks are equipped with all the tools a professional mover needs for a smooth, stress free move. At A Plus Movers we offer premium storage units at very competitive pricing. Our storage special is most suitable for short term storage requirements.
Our professional movers can be hired to pack and unpack all items being moved. We can also shrink wrap couches, mattresses and box springs to provide extra protection and have them ready for moving. All our moving trucks come equipped with all the necessary tools needed to disassemble and reassemble furniture after moving.
A professional mover moves 2 pianos on average every week. Our movers are trained to disassemble a piano, shrink wrap it and secure it in moving pads and strap it down to piano skids in order to move it safely from or into your home. Floor runners and moving pads are used to protect the floor from getting damaged. We can also help our esteemed customers get their piano tuned a while after it is moved.
Whether it was old furniture, newspapers, toys, gym equipment or appliances we will help you get rid of it all. We provide junk removal services to Okotoks, Chestermere, Airdrie, Cochrane, High River and Calgary. We will work with you or your stagers to help you get rid of all the items you don't need. We can help eliminate all the side effects of hoarding. We will clear out basements, garages, attics, and sheds. We will work fast and efficiently and when we are done, your home will be ready for moving or staging.
Office and commercial moving require precise planning and organization efforts.

Whether you are moving your office across the country or across the hall, our movers will make sure your equipment, data, files, and furniture are completely safe and damage free.
Long Distance Moving
Driving a rental truck can be a tedious and dangerous task for untrained individuals. Most of these rental trucks have a track record of mechanical failures due to poor maintenance and abusive operational practices. Your costs will include your downtime, lodgings, fuel and moving equipment such as moving pads and dollies. Our competitive long distance rates guarantees you the best value you can get for your move in Alberta or throughout western Canada. Mid month specials are provided for customers moving to Edmonton, Lloydminster, Fort McMurray Lethbridge and Vancouver.

A+PLUS MOVERS - MOVING TIPS
If you decided on not needing our professional packing services, please follow this order, you will find the following packing tips very useful.
Packing Small Appliances
Items such as clocks, small radios and other small appliances should be wrapped individually and packed in smaller boxes cushioned with crushed paper or towels.
Packing Collectibles & other Valuable Items
Bubble wrap is used for exceptionally valuable and fragile items. Then wrap carefully in newsprint which has been crushed and flattened out before placing it in a box. Make sure that there are no spaces left empty between the newsprint and the box.
Packing Picture Frames, Mirrors & Canvas
Wrap it individually and carefully in fabric. A bath towel or small blanket makes an excellent outer wrapping and padding for the glass.
Packing Music Records, CDs and DVDs
Records are heavy and should be packed in small book boxes that are of a similar size. If records are not in jackets, wrap individually in tissue paper or plastic wrap to protect against scratching. Stand records and compact discs on their edge on a layer of crushed paper or a small face towel. Support at both ends with a large, hardcover book or several pieces of cardboard cut to fit.
Wrap cups individually, protecting handles with an extra layers of packing paper.
Silverware or Silver Plates
Silverware pieces should be completely enclosed in fresh, clean tissue paper or plastic wrap. If the silverware is in a chest, you still may want to wrap the pieces individually and replace in the chest. Or fill in all empty spaces in the chest with tissue paper or paper towels as items may shift in transit causing scratches and minor damage. Wrap the chest with a large bath towel.
Glassware & China
Glassware and china that are less in 18 inches in size should be wrapped individually in enough packing paper to keep them from shifting inside the box causing them to breaking or fracture each other. These items are then placed in special corrugated boxes to keep their outside edges protected during transit. All boxes containing glassware or china should be marked fragile.
Large Plates & Platters
Larger plates, platters and other fragile flat items should be placed and wrapped individually with cushioning material surrounding them; you can use towels, blankets or cushions. They are then placed in double layered corrugated boxes.
Wrap in a similar way as larger plates. Stand shallow bowls on edge in the box and deep ones nested two or three together, upside down on their rims. Wrap cream pitchers in packing paper, then a double outer wrapping. Place sugar bowls, cream pitchers, sauce container and similar pieces upright in the box.
Remove the lamp bulb and the lamp shade, wrap the base, shade and bulb separately in newsprint or fabric. Place together in a carton, filling spaces with crushed paper or newsprint.
Packing Books & Folders
Pack books on their edges. Alternate bound edges and open edges. Pack books of the same general size together. Use smaller boxes for books or boxes rated to hold more weight.
Packing Linens & Bedding
Blankets, sheets, tablecloths, towels, pillowcases and other linens may be protected by a large plastic bag and packed into larger boxes.
Packing ClothingClothing is usually the last item to go. Clothing left on hangers and placed in wardrobe Boxes available on our trucks leaving your clothes wrinkle-free and ready to wear without the need for pressing.
