Frequently asked questions

MovingWaldo is not a moving company itself; rather, it is a sophisticated moving platform that connects users with a network of professional movers and service providers. We meticulously vet and verify each moving company in our network to ensure they meet our high standards of professionalism and reliability.

  1. Local and long-distance moves: Whether you’re relocating across town or across the country, our platform facilitates both local and long-distance moves. With our network of trusted moving companies, you can rest assured that your belongings will be handled with care and transported safely to your new destination.

  2. Packing and unpacking service: Simplify the moving process with professional packing and unpacking services. Our Waldo Verified partners are equipped to efficiently pack your belongings, ensuring they are properly secured for transport. Upon arrival at your new home, they can also assist with unpacking, saving you time and effort.

  3. Storage solutions: If you need temporary storage for your belongings during your move, our Waldo Verified partners offer convenient storage solutions to accommodate your needs. Whether you require short-term or long-term storage, we provide secured facilities, ensuring a safe environment for your possessions until you’re ready to retrieve them.

Moving companies first go through a preliminary verification process that considers factors such as accreditations, client reviews, years of experience, professionalism, and overall positive online presence.

 

After the company passes the preliminary verification, to become Waldo Verified, we sit down with the owner to discuss their experience, credentials, and credibility. Only incorporated and trustworthy companies are Waldo Verified.

 

We also review their insurance certificates. Waldo Verified moving companies must carry a minimum of $1 million in liability insurance, as well as legal cargo protection.

Our algorithms calculate moving quotes based on various factors such as the distance between your current and new address, hourly labor costs, estimated relocation time, and any additional fees for special items. These quotes are generated by our platform using standardized metrics to ensure consistency and transparency in pricing. While the quotes provide a good estimate, your final cost may vary depending on the actual duration and any additional services you may require during the move.

We’re here to help you move anywhere in Canada! From big cities like Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, and Halifax, to smaller towns and rural areas, our network of van lines and long distance movers covers the whole country. Wherever you’re headed, count on us for reliable moving services across Canada.

Weight based pricing

To initially determine the price of your move when you are given your moving quote, van lines and agents of van lines rely on the detailed inventory list of your home that you provided them, which helps estimate the weight of your belongings. 

On moving day, industrial scales are used to officially weigh the items and establish the final price. 

Hourly pricing

While hourly pricing is uncommon for long distance moves, some smaller local movers offering long distance moves may utilize it. Note that these local movers are often less specialized than larger moving van lines, who charge based on weight. 

Hourly pricing may work to your advantage if you have fewer items and are moving less than 400 km away. This is because local movers, who typically charge lower rates than moving van lines, will have the proper expertise to move you a shorter distance. 

Opting for local movers in this situation is not only cost-effective but also faster and more efficient than hiring a van line, making it the ideal choice for same-day delivery.

However, if you are moving over 400 km away, smaller local movers may lack the expertise, therefore possibly incurring additional unexpected costs. 

For both weight-based and hourly-priced moves, items that are highly fragile, valuable, or unusually large objects requiring additional protection, such as crating, may incur additional charges.
