As much as many of us don’t want to admit it, winter is on the way here in Canada. That means extremely cold days, piles of snow and icy sidewalks. All of these things can be a hazard if you’re trying to move. For that reason, many people try to move in the warmer months, but sometimes winter moving is unavoidable. That’s ok! Moving in the winter doesn’t have to be extra stressful if you follow a few simple guidelines.
You care about the environment, and so do we. That’s why we know it’s important to you to keep your move as eco-friendly as possible. But, when you’re hauling everything you own across the city (or across the country) it’s hard to keep things green.
Canadian winters can be rough. They can also be unpredictable. Most people try to avoid moving in the winter, but sometimes you can’t choose when you have to move. So what do you do if your move falls on a day when the weather is, to put it bluntly, lousy?
Realtors and movers both have the same end goal: to get clients into a new home. If you are a business that has to relocate employees, then you have the same goal too. So do corporate housing companies, seniors’ residences, even university dorms, and more. Along with having the goal of getting their clients or customers relocated, all of these businesses likely want to bring added service value to them. And that’s where partnering with a moving company comes in.
When you’re in the process of moving there’s a lot to get done, and you might think it’s safe to just hire the first moving company you see. But if you don’t take the time to do your research and hire just any moving company, you could become the victim of a moving scam.
Some moving scams involve movers charging way to much, adding a lot of unexpected charges to your bill that weren’t on your estimate, or worst of all, having you pay beforehand and then not showing up at all.
Unfortunately, these kinds of moving scams are far too common. Fortunately, they’re easy to avoid if you do your research and follow a few simple steps before hiring a local moving company.
Packing for a move can be one of the most stressful parts of the whole process. It takes a lot of organization and planning, never mind the many hours of actual physical work you’ll do getting all of your things packed. Then there are the packing supplies themselves.
