Did you know that Two Small Men has more than 35 locations across the country? Our team members love the communities they live and work in, and they’re always excited to share their favourite things with people moving there. We were inspired by this, and decided to start a new series on our blog called the City Spotlight. Once a month we’ll be highlighting one of the cities our movers are located in. This week’s city spotlight: Calgary!
The number one question we get from people looking to move is “How much will it cost?” While we would love to be able to have an exact answer for everyone, the truth is there’s no one cost of moving. There are a variety of factors that can affect the final cost of your move that are important to know about if you want to accurately predict how much a moving company is going to cost.
We all know that one of the first things people look for before making any purchase or hiring any service is online reviews. There are all kinds of sites out there dedicated to posting online reviews, and Google posts reviews of businesses right on the search page. While pretty much everyone knows how to look for online reviews, many people don’t really know the best practices for writing one.
Moving is stressful. It doesn’t matter if everything goes perfectly, you’re still going to feel some stress about the whole process. There isn’t much you can do to stop from feeling stressed out about your move. Fortunately, there are a lot of things you can do to deal with that moving stress in order to avoid some of the negative affects.
It seems like the summer has flown by this year! It’s hard to believe it’s already the middle of September. In Canada, we all know that means it’s time to really get prepared for fall and winter (sorry we had to say the “W" word). It’s important to make sure your home is prepared for the cold months so it can be safe and efficient for your family.
We know what you’re thinking – what does a moving company know about damage to a home? It turns out, we’ve worked with a lot of customers who are temporarily moving out of their homes because of fire and water damage. We’re also proudly partnered with restoration companies to help them make moving damaged (or undamaged) furniture out of a home safely.
Computers, laptops, tablets, Smart TVs, wireless printers, wifi routers, Smart home systems – these are just a few of the electronic systems the typical modern family has in their home. When it comes time to move, all of these systems will have to go with you. Most of them require some special care and attention in order to get safely to your new home.
This year, our team is dedicated to “growing our big hearts” by giving back to the communities we live and work in. Because of this, we’ve been working a lot with deserving charities and organizations lately. What we’ve learned through doing this is that giving back feels great! And we think everyone should do it!
There’s a lot of hustle and bustle involved in the moving process. You’ll probably spend most of your time in the months and weeks before you move dealing with real estate, your job, a moving company, utilities, and packing amongst a host of other things. In all of this, there’s something that can often get forgotten: your new home.
Pretty much everyone loves bubble wrap. Kids and adults alike find joy and stress relief in popping all those little bubbles. When you’re moving, you’ll likely be left with an abundance of the stuff. Yes, probably even more than you can enjoy sitting around and popping, plus what happens to the stuff that’s already been popped?
