My family is about to make a big move from snazzy condo living in Toronto to a beautiful detached home in Burlington. There will be lots of change in the next few weeks. With all the excitement, along with September being a busy month for people to move, I thought I'd share some insight on moving.
Moving is certainly no one's favourite pass-time. Well, maybe not no one's, but it certainly has its challenges. In order to minimize potential challenges and before problems become big problems, it is best to alleviate that potential by considering a few important moving tips.
Movers are not all created equally. There are top-notch companies and some that are simply a nightmare. Obviously we all want to avoid the latter. Have at least three moving companies to get estimates from. If possible, meet them in person so you can get a good feel for the people you are doing business with.
The cheapest is not always the right way to go. Look specifically at services, company policies, reviews, longevity of the business and hidden additional costs (if any).
Planning ahead will benefit you immensely. Having an organized moving day will help you feel on top of everything rather than feeling completely frazzled by the day and associated costs. Also remember, being kind to your movers is generally returned in kindness and care toward your furniture and belongings.
At such an exciting time, it will feel better going into a moving day feeling and being prepared.
