Why Calgary Clients Choose Great Canadian Van Lines for their Moving Company
Great Canadian Van Lines takes pride in providing an honest, affordable, safe, and smooth moving service to clients in Calgary as well as across the country. When we saw other moving companies in Calgary offering complicated pricing structures, hidden fees, slow delivery times, and selfish insurance practices, we knew we could do better.
Our moving services are based on three principles: simple & affordable pricing, faster delivery times, safe delivery and customer-focused protection.
Simple & Affordable Pricing
We wanted to create a pricing structure that was easy to calculate, simple for our clients to understand, and that was clear and concise in our free moving estimates. We base our pricing on a combination of the weight of your goods and the distance between delivery points. We’ll break your estimate down in detail so you’ll never have hidden moving costs.
Faster Delivery Time
One problem we saw consistently from other moving companies in Calgary was a slow delivery time. We know it’s difficult to feel at home in your new home without your furniture and possessions. That’s why we use more direct routing and more strategic scheduling to help us provide faster delivery time than most of our competitors. We’ll always provide a moving delivery window based on distance and the weight of your goods. On the off-chance we deliver late, we will compensate you for our tardiness.
Safe, Client-Focused Protection
At Great Canadian Van Lines, we know that our customer is the most important person in the moving process. We will do everything in our power to ensure your possessions are safe, secure, and well cared for during their travels. Before we load anything into our trucks, we take a careful inventory of your possessions. We will also carefully wrap all furniture in quilted moving blankest. Your goods will be covered based on your declared value of goods through our own Cargo Coverage insurance policy, and we will never charge you a deductible or ask you to purchase insurance.
