Moving doesn’t have to be a stressful ordeal! If you hire reputable professionals, transporting your personal belongings can be a breeze.
To help get you through this transitional period in your life, we’ve rounded up a list of the best movers in Edmonton to help you out. These companies have great reputations, work efficiently and have been praised consistently by their previous clients.
Without any further delay, let’s start off our list of the top movers in the city by tackling one of the major concerns you have about moving – how much this will all cost.
How Much Do the Best Movers Cost in Edmonton?
If you’ve decided when and where you want to move, you’ll need to whip out your calculator and start estimating how much this will set you back.
You first need to decide if you’re going to do the packing or if you want the movers to do it for you. While packing it yourself gives you greater control, don’t underestimate how time consuming and difficult it can be.
If you’re doing the packing, you can head over to your nearest hardware store to get supplies – but moving companies usually sell professional packing materials as well. We’ve put together a list of some common supplies and their average prices:
|2 Cubic Feet||$3.00|
|4 Cubic Feet||$4.50|
|6 Cubic Feet||$ 6.00|
|55-inch Flat Screen TV||$30.00|
|Packing Materials||Average Price|
|Packing Tape (pack of 6)||$3.00|
|Bubble Wrap (5m)||$20.00|
|Packing Paper (10kg)||$35.00|
Packing items yourself is sometimes not recommended because it releases the movers from some liability in the event of any damaged goods during transport. They can probably do a quicker and better job as well.
The more convenient, but potentially more expensive option, would be to get a full-service package that includes packing and moving your items. Most companies offer hourly rates for these services, so we highly recommend that you plan to minimize time.
To get a better idea of how much it might cost, here’s a rough estimate of rates below:
|Number of Movers||Hourly Rate|
Some companies offer some form of flat-rate estimate, depending on the size of your home. Below are the estimated costs for full-service moving packages.
|Type of Home||Packing Services Average Cost||Moving Services Average Cost|
|3 BR House||$1000.00||$1200.00|
The Best Movers in Edmonton
We know that wasn’t easy to go through, but at least you now have a better idea of what this might cost you. With that said, let’s take a look at our top choices for movers in Edmonton.

4. Eager Beaver Moving & Storage
|SERVICES||Residential, Condo & Apartment Moves, Long Distance Moves, Office Moves, Packing, Residential Moves, Senior Moving, Storage|
|ADDRESS||4149 98 Street NW Edmonton, AB T6E 5N5|
|CONTACT DETAILS||Phone: (780) 434-1100 |
Email: [email protected]
|OPERATING HOURS||Monday to Friday: 8:30am – 5:00pm |
Saturday: 9:00am – 4:00pm
Eager Beaver Moving was founded in 1984 by Jack Watson, who has had 25 years of experience working for other moving companies. Starting with nothing more than a fleet of six second-hand trucks and a Yellow Pages ad, this family-owned business is now on its third-generation owner.
Whether you’re moving house down the block or transferring your office to the other end of the city, Eager Beaver encourages you to be systematic and organized about your move. Getting rid of unnecessary items, ensuring that your furniture will fit into your new place, and taking inventory will save you time, money, and plenty of headaches.
Although they offer both packing and hauling, the former is especially useful when seniors are the ones doing the moving. They can assist older clients every step of the way and will also give them a discount on top of it!
If your items won’t fit in your new home or space, don’t worry because they also have portable storage solutions available. With 20-foot and 16-foot sized containers, you can either rent the unit and store it on your property or have Eager Beaver’s professionals place it in their warehouse.
In case you need more space, you can have them store your items in a 300 cubic foot wooden crate in their 10,000-foot facility with indoor heating. However, your items will be stored along with other people’s crates and you’ll need to pay a fee to access your things.
Eager Beaver charges by the hour so it might be better to heed their advice and have everything pre-planned efficiently so they can work as quickly as possible.
For an additional fee, Eager Beaver can take your stuff directly to a donation drop-off as well. Payment is made upon completion of the move but take note that items such as packing paper and bubble wrap would be charged according to what they consume.
Eager Beaver is known for their professionalism and their work ethic. They were recommended to Sharon W., a widow and a senior citizen, who decided to give them a try as she shares:
“The movers that came to my home were Cyril and Chris they were amazing to work with. As a widow a move was stressful enough but these two made it seem simple and easy!! All the stress was gone. I would highly recommend these “gentlemen movers” to anyone. The care and caution they used were over and above what I had expected. There prices were very reasonable and they moved me very quickly and they have a seniors discount!! Thank you so much.”
Sheila L., another client, sought out reviews online to help her make a decision to hire Eager Beaver. She writes:
“I saw the amazing reviews on [website removed] so I thought I would give them a try…. wow do they make moving easy and painless. They move quick and are very careful when moving your items. This is a family run business that has been around for a long time. I don’t picture myself moving ever again without these guys – highly recommend!”
5. Integrity Movers
|SERVICES||Residential, Corporate Moving, Commercial Moving, International Moving, Warehouse & Storage Solutions, Additional Insurance Coverage|
|ADDRESS||9920 63 Ave NW #126, Edmonton, AB T6E 0G9|
|CONTACT DETAILS||Phone: (780) 995-9023 |
Email: [email protected]
|OPERATING HOURS||Monday to Sunday: 8:00am – 8:00pm|
Established by Brydon Edwards in 2009, this company was actually started because of a childhood passion for the game of Tetris! One thing led to another until the business made it to the list of one of the 50 fastest-growing companies in Alberta.
Integrity Movers offers a wide range of moving services for the greater Edmonton area, whether you’re moving locally, long-distance, or even international. They have received a Certification of Recognition (COR) from the Canadian Association of Movers (CAM) which is the highest safety certification awarded to companies that ensure health and safety conditions.
Aside from doing residential moves, Integrity Movers also offers to partner up with local businesses that require regular hauling and moving services. They provide white-glove services, including takedown and set-up for fragile items and furniture.
Although they don’t sell any packing materials in case you want to do the wrapping, they offer temporary storage and permanent warehousing solutions for your belongings if you need those options available for you.
What we like best about Integrity Movers is their Corporate Location package, which facilitates customized and individualized moving for every single employee (including their families) on your roster. They’ll handle all the little details and will even provide a specialized employee relocation team at your disposal.
Moreover, if you need to move across oceans or through borders, this company has vast experience in moving internationally. You’ll be assigned a move manager who’ll facilitate all the red tape, assisting you with visa requirements, regulations, and other customs documentation.
Humyra S., had such a great experience with Integrity Movers that she posted a review two years after her actual move. She shares:
“Best movers. They protect your floors/carpets to ensure no damage. Unassemble items and reassemble as needed, did a great job and worked quickly but carefully. They go the extra mile.
I would recommend them to anyone.”
Victoria, another client, shares her story:
“I cannot recommend this company enough. They were able to accommodate my move within 24 hours, which was impressive considering the move was on a Sunday (and most companies I called were closed that day). The booking agent was friendly and carefully walked me through my options, and then the details of my quote. The movers themselves were punctual, friendly and efficient. Due to alley construction, my furniture and boxes had to squeeze through a narrow garage door (not the one meant for vehicles,), across a backyard, all the way to the street in front of the house and into the truck. Not only were they able to move all of my items, they did so quickly and with a great attitude. I particularly appreciated this as moving is inherently stressful, and they gave me one less thing to worry about.”

While they offer both packing and hauling, you can always opt to pack items yourself, and Riteway provides the necessary tips for you to do it properly. You can purchase boxes, packing tape, and other supplies from them, but you can also borrow their Wardrobe Boxes free of charge.
If you plan to move out of the state though, this is automatically considered a long-distance move and you’ll be charged by the weight or volume of your belongings. The total distance traveled also factors into the total cost, but these will all be discussed with you with your personalized moving consultant.
Insurance is already included in their quoted price, but you’re more than welcome to purchase additional insurance. You’ll need to pay via credit card before the move gets started, although it won’t be deducted until the move is completed.

They were very careful with the moving all of our furniture and made sure not to scuff or scratch any walls while hauling stuff in and out. They moved all of our stuff to our new house really quickly. I shopped around looking for the best price and these guys had very reasonable prices. I would definitely use these guys again in the future.”
Kelly Searle, another customer, adds her thoughts:

Time Movers’ philosophy is simple: to offer superb moving services to its neighbors in Edmonton. From packing and transport to customer relations, they strive to accomplish each job professionally.
As a local business, they understand full well the plight of any business that has to move or relocate because lost time equals lost income. Therefore, their commercial moving services try to get the job done as quickly and efficiently as possible with signature workflows to streamline the process.
Time Movers will help in creating an intricate plan to make the move as efficient as possible, which includes managing the inventory. Whether you’re a business or a homeowner moving house, these services are available to you.
As they have a full-service package that includes packing, transport, and unpacking, you can take the opportunity to have a break and maybe even go on a short vacation! Their fuss-free service will let you rest easy knowing that everything is being handled with care.
If you want to be hands-on during the move, you’re more than welcome to do so as long as you don’t lift anything. You’ll be assigned a contact person to ensure that everything goes by without a hitch, and you can even join the team in labeling boxes at the loading area and directing the crew at the drop-off point.
Should you need storage options, Time Movers has got you covered as well, whether you need it for your furniture or to store records of your business. What makes them unique is that they have a vast network across the country and can connect you with a storage option in your preferred location.
With units ranging from a 5’x5’ to a 10’x30’, you’ll have ample space for large items such as appliances, furniture, bookcases, and more. All storage units are approximately 8-feet in height.
With an impressive 5.0 rating on Google, Time Movers has done an excellent job thus far. Janet Foo, a client, shares her experience;
“I used time movers at the beginning of October for a move. They were available on short notice & reasonably priced, punctual & got my move done in a timely manner. Great communication & would definitely use them again!
Jasmine Chawla, another client, adds her thoughts as she shares:
“Great service from start to finish. Movers were careful yet efficient and made my moving day less stressful. Looking forward to contacting again for the next move. Thank you!”
8. Flex Movers
|SERVICES||Residential Moving, Commercial Moving, Apartment Moves, House Moves, Experts In Gym Setups And Take Downs, Student Moves, Unique Moves, Junk Removal|
|ADDRESS||9614 120 Avenue NW Edmonton, AB T5G 0R9|
|CONTACT DETAILS||Phone: (780) 718-1640 |
Email: [email protected]
|OPERATING HOURS||Monday to Sunday: 9:00am – 9:00pm|
Flex Movers is family-owned and operated, serving the greater Edmonton Area with competitive prices and unbeatable timely services. With all their experience in the field, they’ve amassed years of knowledge to help keep all their clients satisfied.
They’re accredited with the Better Business Bureau and have full cargo insurance, ensuring that your valuables are protected in case something unfortunate happens. Luckily, Flex Movers have years of experience in streamlining their moving process, so this is highly unlikely.
While offering the standard residential moving for homeowners, condo dwellers, or student boarders, they also offer distinct services such as junk removal and unique services such as assembling and disassembling gym equipment.
We like their eco-friendly junk removal services because they charge by the capacity that fills up their truck, and most of what they haul away is taken straight to certified recycling centers or waste disposal facilities.
To facilitate a move from an apartment up to a 3-Bedroom Townhouse, Flex Movers charges flat hourly rates, which keeps things affordable – but the standard fees don’t include packing. You can choose between partial and full packing services and we like that you’ll have a “Moving Commander” or supervisor on-site to facilitate the process.
We also like that there are no extra fees for fuel, labor, or insurance since everything is already included in the quote. Add to that premium white-glove service, and you’ve got a pretty sweet deal with Flex Movers.
Donna Sampson, a client of Flex Movers, will be using the company again in the future due to their efficient service. This is her story:
“Our move in July was the 3rd time we’ve used Flex Movers over a 3-year period. Twice for ourselves and once for my MIL. Each time, Solomon and his crew were efficient, friendly, courteous and ever so careful with our possessions. I’m not going to say much more than I’d recommend them to anyone in a heartbeat – and I have! And I will definitely contact Solomon for our next move! Great guys to work with!”
Kari Weisgerber, another client, adds:
“Solomon and Flex Movers assisted a friend during a stressful move. His team were kind and caring and made the process as smooth as possible. I would highly recommend Flex Movers as they will bring not only professionalism but care when it is needed as well.”
9. Elder Move
|SERVICES||New Home Selection, Packing and Sorting, De-Clutter/ Organize Move Support, Sale of Previous Property|
|ADDRESS||11255 41 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T6J 0T6|
|CONTACT DETAILS||Phone: (780) 668-9767 |
Email: [email protected]
|OPERATING HOURS||Monday to Friday: 9:00 am – 5:00 pm|
The concept of Elder Move began when its owner, Shannon Lang, had to help one of her parents move and realized what an arduous process it was. She then decided that helping people go through this exhausting experience was something she wanted to do and founded the company in 2010.
Senior citizens often consider downsizing their living conditions for various reasons, which can be an emotional process. Elder Move helps by keeping the experience positive and providing professionals to assist in the labor-intensive work.
To say that they take a hands-on approach from start to finish to ease the transition from one home to another is an understatement.
We like that this company will help senior citizens choose their new home by sorting through different communities and locations. They’ll even physically go to the places to snap photos and take measurements to minimize travel, especially for those who have difficulty moving.
If a new place has already been chosen, Elder Move can help to de-clutter, organize, and pack items and prized possessions with scheduled sessions so that it’s not too tiring. They’ll assist in selling items and will additionally arrange charity donations and organize the disposal of trash.
When it’s time to move, all items will be handled with white-glove service from the origin to the destination. Aside from unpacking boxes, they’ll even go the extra mile in transferring medications and even updating the senior client’s information for utilities.
As if that weren’t enough, Elder Move will even clean up the previous property, including finding a carpet cleaning service and contractors to conduct any repairs to prepare the home for sale. They happily link you with a realtor and provide labor to prepare your open house as well.
All in all, there’s not much we don’t like about Elder Move, except for the fact that it can be expensive, considering the range of services they offer. However, their specialized business has achieved a lot of good around Edmonton and earns them a spot as one of the best movers in the city.
Jamie Evanoff, hired Elder Move to help her grandmother move, and was impressed with the whole process. She shares her story:
“I’ve known Shannon for many years, and before my grandma had to move into assisted care she was always so helpful. When the time came that we had to move grams she was there willing and able to help. The best part for us was how she was always putting grams first. Shannon makes you feel cared for and supported the whole way through!”
Jenn Lavalley, has been a regular customer of Elder Move, and adds her thoughts:
“Absolutely outstanding company! Shannon’s team has helped several family members move and the service has always been excellent. Highly recommended!”
10. College Hunks Hauling Junk And Moving
|SERVICES||Local Moving, Long Distance Moving, Junk Removal, Donation Pickups, Labor Services, Furniture Moving & Rearrangement, Home Staging, Light Demolition, Truck Loading & Unloading, Packing|
|ADDRESS||11415-168th Street NW Edmonton, AB T5M 3S1|
|CONTACT DETAILS||Phone: (587) 882-9707|
|OPERATING HOURS||Monday to Saturday: 8:00am – 9:00pm |
Sunday: 9:00am – 9:00pm
College Hunks Hauling Junk & Moving has over 150 locations across the U.S. & Canada, making it convenient to find a location that suits your needs. Luckily, this highly-acclaimed company has a franchise to serve the greater Edmonton area.
With licensed, trained professionals, you not only get efficient movers but friendly staff who will handle your items as if it were their own. They’ll transform an otherwise cumbersome experience into one that is pleasant and fun!
College Hunks will help you pack, unpack and move to your new location just like any other moving service. However, even if you’re not moving anywhere and need an extra set of hands to rearrange a heavy appliance or to move some things down to your basement, they can help you out.
This company can do some light demolition work as well, like tearing down drywall for your home renovation and they’ll even take out the debris afterward. Other examples of labor services they provide include removing built-in furniture from offices or commercial property.
The downside to College Hunks is that they charge for the fuel they’ll use for your job order. This cost includes the time it takes to travel from their office, the origin, destination, and back to their office once again.
Nevertheless, one of their specialties is eco-friendly junk removal, wherein most items they haul are brought for recycling or proper accredited disposal. Some common items they’ll haul for you include mattresses, furniture, appliances, and scrap metal, among others.
However, if you prefer that your items go to somebody else who needs them, College Hunks can help find a recipient for your second-hand goods! Once the donation has been completed, they’ll even give you a donation receipt so that you can use it for your taxes.
Michelle M. was thoroughly impressed with College Hunks efficiency and professionalism. She shares her story:
“Wow! I actually don’t have words for how amazing of a job the guys did! I was tasked with cleaning out my grandparents house which included a full garage and some very large/awkward furniture. I was very overwhelmed. From the beginning the college hunks website was informative and I was able to do a live online chat which answered many questions. I felt very comfortable booking college hunks after my chat. Leon called after I booked online to clarify details. The guys called 15 mins before arrival and were right on time for the job Matt and Leon were very friendly and professional. Even my dog likes I still don’t know how they cleaned out the garage and got everything moved in 2 hours! It was amazing. They even swept up before they left. Also, they charged way less than I expected and only 1/6th of what another company quoted me. Thank you College Hunks. I will definitely use this company in the future!”

Funk’s Moving is almost an institution in Edmonton, having provided its services to residents since 1972. Locally owned and operated, this business is a trusted provider in the city and its surrounding areas.
With old-fashioned values combined with current technology, Funk’s Moving & Storage is available for both residential and commercial moves. Whether it’s loading and unloading services, packing, contract delivery services, or secure storage, they’ve got it covered.
We like their no-subcontracting policy (avoiding a thing that so many other moving services are guilty of doing). Funk’s Moving & Storage will see a project through from start to finish to ensure a streamlined process.
They offer four main packing services: Full Packing, Kitchen Packing, Single Package Packing, and Wardrobe Packing. Take note: only the full service includes unpacking your items for you, but they can hang up your clothes in your new closet, though.
Whether or not you avail of their moving services, Funk’s Moving & Storage can provide you with the necessary supplies to pack your possessions such as boxes, blankets, dollies, bubble wrap, just to name a few.
We like that they provide moving supplies in three “kit” types: Apartment Kit, Small Home Kit, and Deluxe Home Kit. These contain varying numbers and sizes of boxes, tape, bubble roll, newsprint, and even a marker to label everything!
You can order items as you need them or individually with free orders over $150. You can also get a refund for any boxes you don’t use, just in case you overestimate what you need.
Alec Sawitsky, a client, was strapped for time and needed a moving company on-the-fly. He appreciated that Funk’s Moving & Storage accepted his order as she writes:

Each truck that arrives at your home is equipped with virtually every tool they might need to perform hauling smoothly and quickly. They offer three convenient moving packages for you to choose from, namely Basic, Gold, and Platinum catering to 1-bedroom spaces up to 3-bedroom homes respectively.
Andrea Bradley appreciated the efficiency of PJ Moving Solutions, even though they went off schedule. She writes:
“Your movers were professional, polite, friendly, and very efficient. We had a delay due to a double-booking of our building elevators, and we somehow managed to finish a half hour under our estimated time. All of your staff did great!”
Patrick Gonzalez was surprised at the punctuality of PJ Moving Solutions, arriving earlier than the scheduled time. He shares:
“The movers called and actually arrived a bit earlier than expected! That was awesome! They were friendly and questioned what I needed. I was extremely pleased with their friendliness. I would love to have the same movers help me later this year.”

The Burly Boyz was founded in 2009 with nothing more than a couple of guys and a single truck. Today, they have a total of 13 trucks and 4 locations across Canada, which includes the original Edmonton branch.
They have an A+ rating on the Better business Bureau, which is a testament of their customer-oriented service. With over 10,000 moves across Canada under their belt, it’s safe to say that this business is booming.
What makes this company interesting is their use of the Burly Box – a reusable, stackable storage box that’s an eco-friendly solution to moving. Measuring 12” x 17” x 27” and made of HDPE, the only downside is that you have to rent the box and need to return it afterward.
Now if you want to use traditional boxes because you don’t want the hassle of returning the Burly Box, they offer a wide range of packing materials for your moving needs. Whether it’s a small 2 cubic feet box or a 70-inch flat-screen TV packing carton, these guys have a solution for you.
They also offer storage solutions in their Edmonton and Mississauga warehouses, which can temporarily house your items in-between your moves. The warehouse is not open to public access, so you’ll be content knowing that your items are safe and sound in the climate-controlled facility.
Chris Loader was ecstatic at the worry-free move he experienced with the Burly Boyz. He writes:
“Absolutely fantastic courteous careful service. This is literally the first time we have had a completely stress free moving experience. I would highly recommend these hard working folks for any move big or small!! Efficient, quick, and clean and so focused. Great job guys. Having used many different movers over the years, we won’t hesitate next time but to call Burly Boyz!! Thank you”
Rhonda Blanchford, another client, adds:
“Amazing moving experience! I would highly recommend you guys to anyone!”
