Moving Tips

Hazardous Items: Do not pack hazardous material i.e. flammable items, garden machines not drained of petrol, paints, solvents, aerosol products, gas containers, or poisonous household products. Check with your moving company first as to whether it can be transported in the moving truck or not. List boxes as well as furniture and garage items Hazardous Get rid of items you don't need or haven't used in a year before movers arrive.

Valuable items: Keep all valuables with you at all times. i.e. money, passports, jewelry, certificates, coin collections etc should be kept in your possession.

Essential items: Pack a small box or a strong bag with essential items you will need to see you through until the moving is over. i.e. toiletries, spare change of clothes, snacks, towels, plastic cups, tea and coffee, toys for the kids etc.

Note: Parking In some areas parking can be an issue for the movers, check to see if you will need to have special parking instructions on your moving day.

Plan ahead: Notify carrier as soon as you know dates, preferably 2-3 weeks prior to move. Confirm dates and services to be performed with your move coordinator. Make a list of items in other locations. Donate unwanted items to a charity or local shelter. Provide phone numbers at destination including motels, new home, cell phone and work.

Special items: List boxes as well as furniture and garage items. Make a list of items that will need special handling. This includes glass table tops, marble tops, taxidermy and heavy mirrors or pictures that may need wood crating. Do not have the phone disconnected at origin until after the house is empty. Communication is important!

Pets - If you take your pets in your car remember to take along Food, Water, A leash for letting your pet out of the car, and Newspaper or sheets to keep your car clean. Animals can get car-sick and will require frequent stops along the way. Be sure to check if your destination has any local requirements or restrictions on animals.

Furniture: Self assembly furniture isn't designed to be flattened, moved and reassembled more than once, so usually isn't covered within the insurance policy that the moving companies offer. Most of the time this type of furniture will not go back together perfectly after a move.

Be organized and thorough: Save time and money by giving away or selling items you no longer need, want or have use for. Now is a good time to de-clutter your home.

Donate your unwanted Items Save yourself some time and money while preparing for your move. Consider donating your unwanted items to a local church or charity. This may prove to be a good way to de-clutter while being cost effective and charitable at the same time. Call your local charity service center and donate to a great cause.

This is the first time anyone moved me and cared about the little things. The movers were so polite and your staff listened to my every concern.

I imagined it would be an overwhelming experience to move to another county. I was immediately put to ease after speaking to your relocation manager who assured me she would handle everything at origin and destination including securing all the documentation. She was knowledgeable and answered all of my questions and was just a phone call away. Let her and the crew know that we appreciate everything. It made a huge difference for us. ----Alard Dubois
