Tips from Expert Toronto Movers to Help Prepare for Your Move

If you want a stress-free and successful move, you need to plan and prepare accordingly. Waiting until the last minute is never a good idea. Moving planning preparations should start the moment you decide you are moving.

Taking advantage of this extra time to pack and prepare will pay off come moving day.

 

Tip #1: Book a Toronto Moving Company

Attempting to recruit friends and family members to help with a move can be difficult. Even though they might say yes, it is not uncommon for them to cancel at the last minute. This will leave you without the help you require.

In addition, “DIY” moves require you to rent a truck and the equipment you will need. With a professional moving company, all of these things are provided. Not to mention, you do not have to worry about the back-breaking labour or risks of personal injuries.

 

Tip # 2: Pack Ahead and Get Rid of Unwanted Items

Moving is a great time to go through your belongings and get rid of anything you no longer want or need. It is best to make three different stacks as you are packing:

  1. Things you do not want.
  2. Things that are “trash” and/or can be recycled.
  3. Things you want to keep and move.

Once you have your items sorted, pack what you want to keep. You can have a garage sale to sell items you do not want to make some money. Afterwards, donate anything that is left over.

 

Tip #3: Pack One Room at a Time

It is best to start packing by focusing on one room at a time. Pack up as many items as you can before moving onto another room. Taking this approach will help you remain focused and accomplish your packing much sooner. Just remember to leave out items you are still using. You should also set aside cleaning products. Pack these last if you want to clean your new home before you unpack.

 

Tip #4: Write a Summary on Each Box

It is beneficial and helpful to know what is in each box you packed. Take the time to write a summary of the contents on the outside. Write which room you want to box placed in at your new home too. You should also number to boxes to know how many boxes you are moving.

 

Tip #5: Making an Inventory List

Take a piece of paper and divide it into five columns as follows:

  • Room
  • Box Number
  • Description of Contents
  • Move Out Check Box
  • Move In Check Box

As boxes are moved out, check them off. Do the same once they are unloaded at your new home. Using an inventory list ensures you do not miss any boxes and everything gets moved.

    The team of movers was on time, friendly, and professional. The move chief lent me some large boxes at no cost. In no time, my stuff was in my new apartment. I've employed Sue Land Moving before, and I will employ them again.

    I recently used SueLand Moving and Storage to move and the whole process from booking to moving day was seamless. Leyland and his staff were professional, on-time, and incredibly efficient. Given the horror stories I've heard about other companies, I had no idea moving could be this stress-free! I highly recommend SueLand Moving for your next move.
