I don't typically leave reviews but this company deserves recognition...
Big Joe's was recommended to us on a community Facebook group. We interviewed and considered 3 other moving companies; Big Joes was only one of two who came to our house to provide a quote (I had heard stories about companies who gave quotes over the phone and ended up grossly over-charging because they didn't actually know how much stuff you had) and I immediately got a good feeling from Joe.
Our house purchase fell through a week before we were to move out of our current home; understandably this was pretty upsetting but when I called Joe, he told us not to worry about them, that they had a storage facility they would store our stuff at if needed, and they would show up the following week whether to move us into a new home or into storage.
Joe stored our stuff for free for 6 weeks while we waited to take possession of a different home. The movers worked hard and efficiently even though it was a rare spring blizzard when we moved in. A framed jersey was damaged (could have been from the cold) and they offered to fix it at their expense. We have a number of antiques and things that are very fragile and they took good care of them.
I can't say enough good things about this moving company and about their owner Joe. I highly recommend them to anyone. They might not be as cheap as some of the other guys, but their prices are competitive and we are very happy with the service! You won't be sorry supporting this small, local company.
This is the second time we've used Big Joe's Movers Ltd. We cannot say enough good things about this moving company. Four guys were involved in our move. All were careful with our belongings - but still quick in getting us moved in the four hour window alloted by our condo board. To top it off our final bill was less than our quote!! I would not hesitate to recommend Big Joes.

I recently used Big Joe’s for a move within Calgary. They were on time, courteous and took great care to ensure all our furniture was moved without damage and placed right where we wanted it all put. Their pricing was also very competitive. I would highly recommend them.
These guys were amazing! Very efficient worked great as a team and were genuinely nice guys. As a single mom I’ve found it hard to get movers who don’t make me feel uncomfortable in my own home - these guys were amazing. They accidentally left a bolt for my daughters bed at my old home - the one mover headed to ikea after his shift to ensure my daughters bed was structurally sound for her to sleep in - he came back and gave me the parts on his own time! Highly highly highly recommend this company! Plus my daughter loved the large shrek on the side of the truck and now every time we see shrek she points out that he was the nice mover who helped us 😂 A+ guys!!!
These guys are the best movers I’ve ever had! They worked till midnight to get the move done and didn’t say a word about it. All the guys were courteous and respectful. They didn’t break one thing or scratch one wall. Will use them again and recommend to everyone.
We had Big Joes move our stuffs last month and their guys did a great job - fast, efficient, professional service and there were no damages on the house and furnitures. I would hire them for our future moving requirements.
Big Joes Movers was such a help with my quick move from Calgary to Lethbridge. They made the move so easy and stress free. I would suggest anyone looking for a moving company to choose Big Joes Movers!
Joe and his team of movers were exceptional!!! Their commitment to timeliness while attending to small details and ensuring care of our items being moved was excellent. Joe is definitely concerned about the welfare of his clients as they transition from one home to another, as we experienced his ongoing support to help us resolve those small and often irritating elements that need attention eg hooking up TV, finding items in boxes, etc. My husband and I would highly recommend Joe as your mover.
